Scope and Content

Utah law provides that each city shall prepare a comprehensive long-range general plan to guide growth and land development within the municipality (UCA 10-9-301(1), 1997). The plan is designed to serve as a guide for decision-making on zoning and other planning proposals. According to law, the plan may include: (a) a land use element; (b) a transportation element; (c) an environmental element; (d) a public services and facilities element; (e) a rehabilitation, redevelopment, and conservation element; (f) an economic element; (g) recommendations for implementing the plan; and any other elements that the municipality considers appropriate (UCA 10-9-302(2), 1997). Kanarraville adopted a general plan in April 1994. This plan contains information about Kanarraville's location, geography, demographics, history, weather, land use and housing. It outlines goals for each element as established by the town board. The board wants to maintain and enhance Kanarraville's rural and natural environment, including the maintenance of ranching in the area. They want Kanarraville to be a bedroom community for Cedar City and are not interested in any type of commercial or industrial development.



The Kanarraville general plan is a single document providing background information and outlining goals for various elements as provided by law. Information is arranged by element.
