Wasatch County North Village
Streamlined Development Process through Form-Based Code
Wasatch County’s code was extremely cumbersome for the planning staff and decision makers to administer. It was also difficult for the development community to embrace because of the up-front engineering costs required in the approval process. The County commissioned Psomas to improve the approval process and create a more streamlined code.
The North Village in Wasatch County serves as the gateway to the entire Heber Valley for visitors from the north. Critical to the success of the code was development criteria that preserved and enhanced the rural character of this important gateway.
