Cottonwood Heights, UT

Situated along the east side of the Salt Lake Valley is Cottonwood Heights. After a successful referendum in mid-2004, the city was incorporated in early 2005. In 2007, it was rated as one of the best places to live by Money Magazine. It shares its borders with Holladay and Murray to the South, Midvale to the east, and Sandy to the north, and along it’s east side runs the beautiful Wasatch Front mountains.

The old Cottonwood Mill established in 1883.

The area was formerly called Butlerville; the settlement took its name from the pioneers who settled here. As progress took place during the next century, the valley started to take shape to become the city that it is today.

The McGees were also among the prominent families who first settled in Cottonwood Heights. Along with the Butlers, they provided lumber to Salt Lake’s growing population. During the 1860s, these logs were used to build homes and railroad tracks. Granite was also extracted from the Little Cottonwood Canyon to construct the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

In the early 2000s, local leaders deemed incorporation fit. They saw that taking the reigns in local governance would bring advantages to the residents. With much excitement for their future, Cottonwood Heights became the newest city in Salt Lake Valley on January 14, 2005.

Plenty of Industry

There are plenty of major corporations that have established their offices in the city, including Dyno Nobel, JetBlue Airways, and Overstock.com. Its business-friendly landscape earned it Money Magazine’s award as one of the top cities for business in the U.S.

In 2008 the city created it’s own fire and police departments. In 2009, the city saw the creation of the Canyons School District, which gave its citizens the power of self-determination about how they will run the schools within its territory.

In the words of Mayor Kelvyn Cullimore Jr., “We believe that Cottonwood Heights is a great place to live. We are the city between the canyons, and we would welcome businesses or residents to come and join us.”

Pergolas offer partial shade, and plants can grow across them to offer more shade in time.
