The State of Utah encourages communities to plan for future growth needs, and to minimize spending on public infrastructure and services. Planning grants are offered to communities committed to exploring the efficient use of land and the efficient expansion of infrastructure and public services. Where communities share boundaries, cooperative planning between jurisdictions is encouraged to avoid land development decisions based on competition and haste. (more)

Planning grants are available now! Submit letters of interest by June 16, 06. (more)
