HEBER VALLEY PARKWAY PLANNING STUDY

The Heber Valley is growing rapidly. The population has doubled over the last 17 years and is expected to double again by 2050. This growth is leading to periodic congestion on Main Street (U.S. 40) in Heber City, particularly during the summer when regular traffic is joined by recreational traffic that accounts for potentially 35% of trips through town.

Land User Code & Applications

The Planning Department is responsible for implementation of the Land Use Code, which involves the processing of Land Use Applications. The Land Use Code addresses a wide variety of topics ranging from affordable housing to signage, design criteria, and open space. Land Use Applications include a variety of land use or development requests, such as zone changes, subdivisions, commercial developments, and conditional use permits.

Responsibilities

The Planning Department processes all development applications through: 

The Planning Staff coordinates other City departments’ review of projects as they are submitted. The Staff also provides direct assistance to Boards, Commissions, and Committees. The Planning Department maintains and updates the City’s Zoning/Development Code, the official Zoning and Future Land Use maps, and the City’s General Plan. The Planning Department conducts long-range planning for future growth in the City. Long Range Planning includes more "big picture" projects that usually involve public engagement.

Administrative Fees and Escrow Fees

Administrative fees cover costs for Planning Commission, City Council and Staff in preparing for and conducting public meetings and development review meetings for each particular application. Administrative fees are a fixed amount per application.

Escrow fees cover estimated costs for engineering and planning consultant reviews of the application. Consultants are paid monthly based on submitted invoices. As the escrow is drawn down each month to pay consultants, applicants must bring the balance of the escrow back to the original amount to ensure there is an adequate amount to pay for consultant review time. Once the application review has been completed, any remaining balance after consultants have been paid is refunded back to the applicant.
