The 11-person Mountainous Planning District Planning Commission currently has multiple vacancies, and we are seeking Sandy residents interested in the Wasatch mountains, and volunteering in their community, to apply.

The Mountainous Planning District aims to preserve the mountain environment and enhance the quality of living, and manage uses in the mountains for a geographic area of the Central Wasatch Mountains east of current city boundaries in the County, which includes Little Cottonwood Canyon (excluding Town of Alta), Big Cottonwood Canyon (excluding Town of Brighton), Mill Creek Canyon, and Parleys Canyon.

The Planning Commission meets monthly and makes recommendations to the Salt Lake County Council on general plans, zoning ordinances, and more.

Who is qualified? 

Applicants need to be full-time Salt Lake County residents. Residents with backgrounds in architecture, engineering, law, planning, real estate, land development, or transportation should apply, but experience in these areas is not required.

Terms last for three years.
