Since its incorporation in December 1997, Saratoga Springs has experienced rapid growth and today there is more interest in our community than ever before. More than 24,000 residents call Saratoga Springs home with a trade area of over 61,000, many of whom work along the Wasatch Front and enjoy our quiet suburban location with expansive views of Timpanogos Mountain and Utah Lake. For the past 10 years we have been one of the fastest growing cities in Utah and we anticipate that the combined populations of Saratoga Springs, Eagle Mountain, and Lehi will exceed 500,000 at build out.
With our future top-of-mind, we are committed to responsible and balanced growth. The City Council has a pro-growth mentality and encourages responsible and high-quality urban development with a strong commitment to urban planning and green space management. The City is working with a globally-recognized urban design firm who is laying out our city center to include multiple land uses that consist of regional retail, neighborhood commercial, resort/hospitality, traditional neighborhood, business park and others. There are nearly 4,000 acres of undeveloped land in the City and we are excited for you to be a part of shaping what our future looks like.
Transportation has been at the forefront of city growth for many years. With the addition of Pioneer Crossing, the future planned Mountain View Corridor freeway, several major arterial roadways and other projects that include the addition of both light and heavy rail, Saratoga Springs is an easily accessible location and a dynamic residential and commercial center. Indeed, it is the crossroads of northwest Utah County, centrally located between the Provo/Orem and Salt Lake City metro areas.There is excellent access to I-15 and access to Bangerter Highway for quick travel to Salt Lake International Airport or other critical locations north and south of the City.
Future projects will continue to provide easy access to Saratoga Springs’ dynamic residential and commercial centers. Planned projects include an extension of Pioneer Crossing, the Mountain View Corridor freeway, light and heavy rail and other major arterial roadways. (Insert Transportation Map).
