Our Mission

Utah County is expecting extraordinary growth because of its continued economic prosperity, reasonable cost of living, and excellent quality of life. Even with the recent global pandemic there are promising indicators that Utah County will double its population in 20 years. This explosive growth is creating housing challenges that will continue to hurt our state unless proper measures are taken. The Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce supports a diversified mix of housing stock that allows for vibrant, affordable communities. Such communities are possible only when communities have a variety of home inventory and diverse zoning options.

3. Encourage building high-density housing near current and future public transit stations and on major corridors
4. Maintain and encourage a high quality of life for the residents of Utah County
