Utah County General Plan / Resource Management Plan

Utah County recognizes that relatively little economic impact comes directly from natural resources on federal public lands, however, issues like water supply, air quality, and law enforcement are vital to the health, safety, and welfare of residents, as well as regional economic success. Recreational access and opportunity are also very important to the quality of life of residents and sustain some businesses. In light of this, the County retained Rural Community Consultants to outline the county’s objectives and policies for the use and management of natural and cultural resources on public lands.

Commissioner Bill Lee

“Utah County is one of the fastest growing regions in the country. Rural Community Consultants helped us navigate tight deadlines and sensitive land use issues. Working with staff and commissioners, our consultants created findings on 28 different issues, hosted an interactive website with multiple community surveys, and facilitated community open-houses. All project due dates were met and the resulting plan will protect the interests of the county going forward.”
