Sustainable Buildings

Salt Lake County owns and operates 182 buildings across the Salt Lake Valley, providing services to more than a million county residents. By building and remodeling smart and sustainably, the county reduces pollution and waste, conserves energy, and saves money.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the standard that we use to ensure our buildings are environmentally friendly. LEED buildings must earn the certification by meeting a number of criteria.

Open Space & Urban Farming


The Open Space Program serves to protect and preserve land within the County with high conservation values benefiting our residents by providing areas for human respite, renewal, and recreation.

The purpose of the Urban Farming Program is to maximize the value of County-owned land for our residents by providing spaces for community gardens, commercial farming, and biofuel production.

Mountain Accord


Salt Lake County continues to be engaged in projects related to sustainable canyon transportation and development to protect this valuable resource and our clean water supply. Mountain Accord is working towards consensus to addressing things that threaten future watershed health, including urban encroachment, mountain development, and climate change.
