SALT LAKE COUNTY – The Salt Lake County Council voted unanimously consider whether or not the controversial Olympia Hills development needed to be amended or rezoned.

In a council meeting Tuesday afternoon, Salt Lake County Council member Michael Jensen filed a motion to put the project on next Tuesday’s council meeting agenda.

The motion passed unanimously.

The city council plans to discuss how to move forward on Tuesday.

The decision comes after Herriman residents launched a signature drive to stop the Olympia development.

Congresswoman Mia Love (R-UT) accused Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams of taking donations from the development’s managers. McAdams fired back, calling Love an “absent.”
