Cairns Master Plan

To address the growing needs of Sandy City and to accommodate regional growth, a vision for the creation of a city center has been developed, called The Cairns District.  The Cairns Master Plan (for a print friendly version, please click here) is a culmination of over 6 years of planning to re-imagine the future of Sandy's downtown area.  Design guidelines for the area are currently being developed based on the goals and policies outlined in this plan. This document was formally adopted by the City Council on January 17, 2017 as part of the City's General Plan (as a Local Area Master Plan).  If you have any questions or comment, please contact Mike Wilcox at (801) 568-7261 or via email.
