This week, Draper citizens can weigh in on allowing electronic signs on commercial properties in their neighborhood. If dead electronics worry you more than blinking billboards, why not drop off your old iPods and laptops at an e-waste recycling event at the University of Utah this week? Later, check out a "pizza and politics" forum discussing women in Utah politics at the University of Utah.

Draper City Planning Commission

Thursday, April 10

Electronic signs and marquees on businesses can make for a real eye-catching advertisement for restaurants and shops, but for some, they can be major eyesores. The Draper City Planning Commission is looking for the public's input on allowing electronic signs on commercially zoned properties in certain parts of the city.

Electronic Waste Recycling Collection

Friday, April 11

The faster people upgrade their phones, laptops and other electronic gadgets, the faster those old electronics wind up in landfills with their toxic heavy-metal components piling up and threatening the environment. This week, find eco-redemption in your latest upgrade by recycling your old e-waste at this community collection event.

The Status of Women in Utah Politics

Monday, April 14

With some key women on the Hill retiring from politics and a lack of women filing to replace them, the gender imbalance on the Hill doesn't look like it's improving. But there are still other opportunities for women to get engaged politically. Find out more at this free forum hosting speaker Susan Madsen, who is the Orin R. Woodbury professor of leadership and ethics at Utah Valley University's Woodbury School of Business.
