Open Space, Trails, Parks and Trees Advisory Committee
As part of Heber City’s community priorities Heber City has established the Heber City Open Space and Trails Committee to help guide Heber City staff and elected officials in the preservation of open space, and the development/maintenance of Heber City’s growing trails system. As part of the $10 million open space bond Wasatch County voters passed in 2018 and the Wasatch County Open Space Code; Heber City has direct influence over a percentage of these open space funds based in proportion with the taxable value derived from properties in Heber City. Applications recommended by the Heber City Open Space and Trails Committee and subsequently the Heber City Council will be given priority in the Wasatch County legislative body’s decision to use Wasatch County Open Space Bond revenue.
The Open Space, Trails, Parks and Trees Advisory Committee serves as the Tree Board. This committee established a Tree Advisory Subcommittee to assist with the duties of the Tree Board in administering the city's tree ordinance. There are currently six volunteers who serve on the Tree Advisory Subcommittee.
