Is this the point of the mountain project?
Though there is some geographic overlap between the scopes of this project and Point of the Mountain Visioning Process, Valley Visioning is focusing on all of Utah County from Lehi to Cedar Valley to Santaquin, rather than just a select portion of the county. There will be collaboration between the two projects as they tackle similar issues in close proximity with many of the same stakeholders.
The population of Utah County is predicted to increase by 1 million people by 2065, most of which are our own children. This county is projected to have a higher growth rate in population, households, and employment than Salt Lake County. We must plan ahead for this population boom to ensure that we can maintain high quality of life for ourselves and our children.
Why does this project keep mentioning growth? How quickly is the area growing?
We want Utah County to reflect what the community wants. We will be hosting public workshops and online sessions to ensure that we hear what you want for our growing county. The residents of Utah County are the biggest stakeholders and driving force for this project.

The result of this process will be a ready-to-use, long range vision or plan for the future of the area, along with an implementation strategy. The vision will be a guide to businesses, cities, developers, private land owners, and everyone else who has a stake in the future of the region.
