Community Development Department Responsibilities:

The Mapleton City Community Development Department has three main responsibilities: Development and Project Review (Current Planning), Long-Range Planning, and Zoning/Code Enforcement. Development and Project Review is essential to address land use issues and questions, evaluate several types of development applications, and maintain the City’s development regulations.

Development and Project Review includes five major responsibilities:

  • Public Information. Responding to citizen and visitor requests for information, and providing local media outlets with information regarding future Planning Commission meetings and other relevant Planning and Zoning information.

  • Evaluating Development Applications. Processing residential development and subdivisions, architectural review of project plan applications, variances, home occupation permits, sign permits, conducting limited environmental review of development projects and capital projects referred by other departments, processing General Plan and Zoning amendments, processing concept review applications, and providing zoning compliance review.

  • Maintaining Development Regulations and Standards. Updating land use regulations (including Zoning Regulations, Subdivision Regulations and Sign Regulations to name a few); updating Architectural Review Guidelines and Environmental Review Guidelines, the Mapleton Subdivision Standards, and revisions of Section 18 (Zoning) of the Mapleton City Code.

  • Inter-Department Support. Providing support and assistance to the Building Official/Inspector, Public Works Department and the Parks and Recreation Department.

  • Council and Advisory Body Support. Providing staff support for the City Council and Planning Commission regarding development review items and work goals.

Long-range planning is necessary to insure that the needs and desires of the community continue to be met in to the future. Long-range planning is the method in which the community describes what it wants to be or become and how it will get there. The Long-Range Planning division of the Planning Department prepares and maintains plans and programs to accomplish these purposes. Plans cover items that include a multitude of topics, including how much land will be available for various uses and the use and protection of natural resources. Programs are developed to implement the plans. Programs are carried out by all departments within the City.

The primary long-range plan for the City of Mapleton is the General Plan. The General Plan is the blueprint for the physical development of the City. Utah State law requires that all cities have an adopted General Plan to help guide its land use decisions. Ideas about the community’s future change as new concepts are developed, new problems are identified, old solutions are reconsidered, and the population changes. Consequently, the General Plan should be constantly studied and revised.

A General Plan is required to address transportation/circulation, land use, open space, noise levels, resource conservation, housing and public safety. For example, some of the elements the City of Mapleton addresses are recreation, hillside preservation and agricultural preservation to name a few.

Zoning and Code enforcement focuses on ensuring that the adopted zoning laws of the City are properly enforced and abided by. Mapleton City usually operates on a complaint basis to identify Code violations. However, Mapleton City will actively enforce obvious Code violations, such as illegal signs and weed abatement.
