Planned Development District: What is it?

When: Thursday, August 30th from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Where: City Hall (2277 East Bengal Boulevard)


The Planned Development District is a land development tool that was adopted by the City to help guide development of key areas in Cottonwood Heights, primary land around the Fort Union Boulevard corridor and land at the ‘gravel pit’ near the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon.

The Planned Development District was established as a tool to give city leaders more input and predictability in the development process than traditional development applications allow. Development standards may be custom-tailored to a specific property based on its location, context, scope, and other criteria. In exchange, the city can review and scrutinize development applications to a greater level of detail than is usually otherwise possible.

Please join the city’s Community Development Department on Thursday, August 30th 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at City Hall for extended open hours to come to learn more about the Planned Development District, to see where it can be applied, and to better understand its process and requirements.

If you are unable to attend during that time, feel free to contact Mike Johnson, Community & Economic Development Director, anytime at 801-944-7060 or at mjohnson@ch.utah.gov.
