Important Updates

Special Exceptions Process and City Council Action
The City Council adopted an ordinance eliminating special exceptions from the zoning code. That ordinance became effective on December 2, 2021. No new applications for a special exception will be accepted.

Pending Ordinance Notice – Significant Water Consuming Land Uses
The City has imposed a temporary land use regulation prohibiting new land uses, and expansions of land uses, that use more than 300,000 gallons of water per day. The regulation also prohibits bottling plants, but still allows for small scale alcoholic beverage production. The regulation is in effect until January 4, 2022. Please see the full regulation on the ordinance webpage.

Accessory Dwelling Units Update
The Utah Legislature passed a state wide law that made Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) that are internal or attached to a single family dwelling permitted uses. This law goes into effect on October 1, 2021. The current processing time for a conditional use is in excess of 90 days. Therefore, if you are interested in establishing an internal ADU on your property, you will only be required to obtain the proper building permit provided the ADU will not be occupied as a rental unit prior to October 1, 2021.  Any previously approved conditional use for an internal ADU will be considered a permitted use on October 1, 2021
