Community Development

The Utah County Planning Division serves the areas in Utah County outside all city boundaries.

General Plan

In 1991, the Utah State Legislature mandated that each city and each county "shall prepare and adopt a comprehensive general plan" to deal with the growth occurring within its boundaries. The role of a "general plan" or "comprehensive plan" is to plan for the physical development of the community. Typically, a general plan is future-oriented because it projects the development of a community to a future point in time or future point in the community's growth. Such a plan is comprehensive geographically and functionally in that it covers all of the jurisdiction's geographic area and all of the physical elements that determine future community development. The purview of the Utah County General Plan is limited to the unincorporated area of Utah County.
