Sandy City - A Community of Citizen Volunteers
Sandy City continues to seek volunteers who wish to help guide the City's development. The level of community and civic pride, and citizen volunteerism, truly makes the difference between a regular or ordinary community and an outstanding community.
During the Sandy Pride clean-up day, held each May, and Utah Pride Day, thousands of volunteer man hours are donated to the City.
These special Community Pride days have historically done wonders in making this City a more beautiful and pleasing community.
The City's population has exceeded 90,000. This is a result of an explosion of residential and commercial growth over the past twenty (20) years.
During the 1970's, pocket communities took shape in the Sandy area providing the services, schools, and shopping traditionally offered by a city. For many residents, particularly those who worked outside the City, this sense of civic connection extended no further than their own neighborhood or district. People felt little attachment to the City as a whole.
City and Civic leaders felt the need to pull things together, and began shaping an identity for the City with the designation of four (4) geographic quadrant communities which have since evolved into neighborhood communities, and through the foundation of a number of citizen advisory committees
These committees have a very important role in advising the City Council and Mayor. A dynamic community such as Sandy faces enormous challenges in meeting the needs of its businesses and the residential needs of its citizenry.
These citizen advisory committees have contributed greatly to the development of the community and the City Administration's ability to more closely meet the desires and needs of its citizens.
Committees and other professional and citizen volunteer organizations have made real and significant contributions to the development of general and master plans and actual beautification and development projects in the City.
Our present volunteer citizen committees include:
- Beautification Committee
- Community Development Block Grant (C.D.B.G.) Committee
- Historic Committee
- Sandy Pride Committee
- The Public Utilities Advisory Board
- The Arts Guild
Please fill out the online application, or contact the Sandy City Council Office at 801-568-7141. When you call or when we speak to you, we will invite you to complete a brief application describing your interests and background, and the committee or area and projects which are of interest to you.
