Planning for change is critical. With growth there comes increasing needs for water, roads, housing, schools, employment, and more. Salt Lake County is continually planning for the needs of current and future generations. Much of the new development in Salt Lake County is happening in the western areas along the Oquirrh Mountains.
Salt Lake County has prepared a long-range plan called the West General Plan for the unincorporated areas of the west.
The West General Plan was approved on May 10, 2022 by the County Council. The County’s vision for the diverse areas within the West General Plan is to plan for:
- Enduring communities
- Vibrant town and village centers
- Employment opportunities
- Preservation of open spaces
The Plan will guide development and conservation for decades to come.
