“Look closely at the present you are constructing. It should look like the future you dream of.”
The Planning Department’s responsibilities include:
- Maintaining and implementing Herriman City’s General Plan. The General Plan guides the City’s development decisions.
- Reviewing individual development proposals for compliance with the Zoning Ordinance (Title 10) and Subdivision Ordinance (Title 11).
- Providing information about planning, zoning and development permit requirements to the public.
- Assisting the Planning Commission and City Council in their reviews of development applications.
Herriman City is a very different place today than it was just a few years ago. Rapid growth during much of the last decade, followed by a significant slowdown during the past few years provided an opportunity for the community to catch its breath and take stock of where it is headed. The Herriman 2020 Plan was adopted in 2009 to provide direction and vision for the future. However some of the details have since become outdated, others are missing, and new areas and projects have emerged which need to be incorporated into the plan.
In order to make sure the 2020 Plan continues to represent the vision of the community, a new study is being undertaken to address the elements that are lacking or incomplete.
The General Plan is a key tool for defining the vision of what the community wants to be and how it will get there over the next ten to twenty years. The document is used by the City’s planners, Planning Commission and City Council when making land use decisions and when establishing land use and budgetary priorities in the community.
