About Kearns

Kearns is located between Mountain View Corridor and Bangerter Highway from 4700 N to 6200 S in the beautiful Salt Lake Valley. The community was incorporated as a Metro Township in 2017. It is home to 36,723 people and is younger and more diverse than most municipalities in Salt Lake County. The community includes 4.8 square miles of land, most of which is developed. Kearns is home to the Utah Olympic Oval, Kearns High School Cougars, and the Kearns Oquirrh Park Fitness Center. USANA Amphitheater and South Valley Regional Airport border the community.

Kearns is governed by the Kearns Metro Township Council (including the Mayor). Kearns also has a Planning Commission and Community Council. The community pools resources with other Metro Townships, the Town of Brighton, and Unincorporated Salt Lake County through the Greater Salt Lake Municipal Services District.
