Eagle Mountain Parks, Trails, and Open Space Master Plan
Eagle Mountain City’s 2020 Parks, Trails, and Open Space Master Plan updates the City’s 2009 plan. In the 11 years that have passed since the previous plan, the City has doubled its population and been significantly developed. The 2020 plan identifies the City’s parks, trails, and open space needs based on rigorous data analysis and community engagement. Eagle Mountain residents are especially concerned and interested in preserving their shrinking open space. MHTN worked collaboratively with the Utah Department of Natural Resources and a citizen-led wildlife alliance group to address these issues.
The master plan provides details on migratory herds through the City and proposes a wildlife corridor and other open space conservation strategies. In addition, it provides a set of comprehensive recommendations for parks and trails that follow five guiding principles: 1) Promote healthy & active communities; 2) Encourage stewardship & civic pride; 3) Provide diverse offerings, amenities, and opportunities; 4) Cultivate resilient approaches; and 5) Conserve & enhance open space. The final recommendations have associated costs and prioritization for plan implemention.
