Scope and Content
The function of the planning commission is to author and approve the General Plan for the Town of Alta with the Town Council. The General Plan for the Town of Alta serves as an official policy to guide decisions affecting development in Alta and Little Cottonwood Canyon concerning the use, development, and conservation of land and water resources and establishes a long-range, comprehensive framework and direction for its implementation. The Town of Alta was incorporated on August 20, 1970. Over the years various versions of the plan have been written. In July 1973, Alta Town Council members adopted the "Alta/Little Cottonwood Canyon General Plan" which they had created according to guidelines provided in Utah's "Municipal Planning Enabling Act" (Utah Code, 1953, 10-9-20 [1984-1985]). A revised "General Plan for the Town of Alta" was published in November 1992. It was superseded by The Town of Alta General Plan (November 2005), an updated version of the 1992 plan which retained sections considered relevant in the context of current issues and priorities.
