Congratulations! You survived the last city election cycle, and turned in your ballot last November. Kudo’s to you! You’re done right?! Um. Not quite. You’ve elected city leaders, which is great, but those city leaders can only represent you if you respectfully stay involved in the decision making process.
Draper’s historical buildings are being given new life as renovated homes, businesses, and venues. Their continued presence in the community is due in large part to the collaboration between community members, the Draper City Council and Mayor, and the Draper Historic Preservation Commission.
Since the dawn of time people have formed communities so they can interact and feel inclusive with others. Participating and being involved in a community can provide many benefits including inspiration and motivation, lessons learned, contacts, opportunities, and social aspects.
The annual Draper Days Parade attracts thousand of spectators as it winds its way along historic Fort Street in the center of the city. There are marching bands, floats, antique cars, dancers, singers and much more; a copious menagerie of quirkiness and hometown flair that celebrates Draper and the people that make this community a fantastic place to live.
