Wasatch Canyons planning

By Amy Brunvand

Salt Lake County is updating the Wasatch Canyons General Plan, last updated in 1989. The Plan is an official statement of county policy on the future use of the Wasatch Mountains and it guides future development and preservation in the canyons.

So far the County has gathered public comments. The next step is to host workshops and develop a draft plan. This is expected to take two years to complete, with various opportunities for public input along the way and a final plan ready in 2019. Save Our Canyons is tracking the process.
