On November 25, 2019, Kearns Metro Township began its general planning process. On October 12th of this year, the Planning Commission will meet to consider the draft plan. The Kearns General Plan Steering Committee, in partnership with MSD staff, has been hard at work preparing this document, and they are excited to continue to work towards its adoption and implementation. The 2020 Kearns General Plan is the first general plan prepared for Kearns since the community incorporated as a Metro Township in 2017. The draft that will be considered at the October 12th Planning Commission meeting is available on the Kearns Long Range Planning Website.
A general plan provides a clear future vision to assist decision-makers, residents, and other stakeholders in evaluating policy changes, recommending projects and prioritizing funding.
