Herriman Hills

What is the Herriman Hills Open Space Initiative?

Herriman Hills, the mountains just south of Herriman City, are a stunning natural resource. These hills contribute to our quality of life with their beauty and recreational opportunities.

Herriman City officials have received an application for a proposed subdivision to build 500 new homes on the open slopes of Herriman Hills.

With maximum build-out, these hills could hold as many as 2,000 new homes. If this development occurs, the natural character of these hillsides will be lost.

After a year of researching options, the Herriman Trails Committee determined that the only way to preserve the mountain from further development would be to buy it from landowners who are willing to sell their properties. After receiving positive feedback about this idea from the community, the Herriman Hills Initiative was created to request $7 monthly fee from residents to purchase and maintain the hillside.

The Trails Committee spent two months collecting nearly 1,700 signatures from Herriman residents to get the initiative on the November 2015 ballot. Their success means that registered voters in Herriman will now have the opportunity to vote for or against the initiative. This will happen via mail-in ballots that will be sent by the beginning of September.
