Economic Development

A Message From the Mayor

Mayor Jim MillerWelcome to Saratoga Springs. The City’s staff and I look forward to getting to know you as you proceed through the development review process.

As you may be aware, Saratoga Springs is an exciting new pro-development community. Since its incorporation in December 1997, we have experienced rapid growth and today there is more interest in our community than at any other time in our short history. More than 60,000 residents call Saratoga Springs home, 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 the fastest growing city in Utah and we anticipate that the combined populations of Saratoga Springs, Eagle Mountain, and Lehi will exceed 500,000 at build out.


Transportation has been at the forefront for many years. With the addition of Pioneer Crossing, the Mountain View Corridor freeway, several major arterial roadways and future plans that include the addition of both light and heavy rail, Saratoga Springs is an easily accessible location and a dynamic residential and commercial center.

With our future top-of-mind, we are committed to responsible and balanced growth. We are 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 that you will be part of shaping what our future looks like.

Project Development

As you begin developing your project, your first step is to meet and discuss your goals with our Planning Department. They will walk you through the first steps of development and outline all of the required applications and estimated timelines that will optimize your project plans. This packet contains the development review process, the departments you will be working with at each phase and your expected fees.

We thank you for your interest in our city and commit to making your development efforts easy and painless. We wish you success with your projects and look forward to growing our city with you.
