A MESSAGE FROM OUR MAYOR - CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES

Mayor Potter

“It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.” -  J.R.R. Tolkien

As everyone is aware the big story in Heber and the State of Utah right now is growth. Growth isn’t exactly a live dragon but can certainly wreak havoc on a community if it isn’t anticipated and planned for. We are in the middle of some significant planning efforts that will help shape the future of this city for decades to come.

Recently we held the first public workshop for Envision Heber 2050. State law requires every city to have a general plan that is a blue print of sorts representing the wishes of the community and helps guide elected officials and staff to fulfill that vision. Our general plan is outdated and this process is addressing it. May 15th will be Public Open House #1: Big Ideas and Choosing. Mark your Calendar!

We have recently completed a study to look at alternatives for Main Street. This process will continue as we seek funding for an environmental study. The recommended alignment is not set in stone and the environmental study will continue to analyze the options.

Finally, we are also beginning an Airport Master Plan update. The FAA requires airport sponsors to complete this process and they are currently withholding funding until we complete it. This will also be a very public process and you will have opportunity to see the data and give input before the study is complete.

We are fortunate to live in such a wonderful city full of people who truly care about their community. At city hall we are committed to better communication and outreach than ever before. I urge each city resident to get more involved in helping us navigate the challenges of growth and ensure that we are planning for the dragon in a way that will maintain our quality of life in Heber City. As always, feel free to contact me with questions or concerns – my office phone number is 435-657-7982.
