Legislative Session Priorities

Utah State Capitol

Herriman City is often noted as one of the most rapidly changing cities in the state. This trend continues now in 2022. This year, in addition to welcoming a new City Council, it is also annexing over 900 acres on the northwestern border. As the City navigates through these changes and works to strengthen and facilitate a prosperous community, they remain committed to supporting legislation that aligns with their principles. The focus is placed on building a strong economic base, providing adequate infrastructure, and improving safety and quality of life through the parks, trails, and recreation amenities, as well as the public safety department. 

This year's priorities center around the following areas of focus:


  • Transportation
    • U-111 realignment
    • Widening of 11800 S. from 6000 W. to U-111
    • Jurisdictional transfer of Herriman Blvd
    • Herriman Main St. improvements from Dansie Blvd to the proposed Salt Lake County trailhead
    • Juniper Crest east connection at Mountain View Corridor
    • Tools and resources to address local transportation needs
    • 7300 W. new construction from Main St. to the northern city boundary
