Sub Area Plans

What is this?

Through the General Plan process, Completed in January of 2020, it became apparent that there was a need for a closer look at two sub areas, the Redwood Road Corridor and the Jordan River/ I-15 Corridor. This is the next step in building a future for our city that we are proud of!

This spring season, we will be reaching out to you for specific input on what you want to see in these areas of you community. What do YOU want for Redwood Road and the Jordan River Corridor?


A little background...

Redwood Road Corridor

Redwood Road is envisioned as South Jordan’s downtown or main street. At over 25,000 average annual daily trips, it lacks the human-scaled, walkable environment and appropriate mix of land uses to support this vision. A focus on key intersections at the South Jordan Towne Center will be important in moving the City toward a more vibrant corridor and center. As a UDOT roadway, South Jordan City does not have significant control over the streetscape. Therefore, improvements will likely center on redevelopment, expansion, and densification of land uses.
The corridor has been part of many planning/ revitalization studies, but have failed due to complications regarding state right-of-way (ROW) ownership, and general lack of overall, cohesive and agreed-upon vision for the area.

Jordan River Corridor

The Jordan River/I-15 Corridor provides key, regional, north-south connectivity by way of the Jordan River Trail and FrontRunner Commuter Rail. The Jordan River Parkway Trail serves over 45 miles in Salt Lake County alone, providing a connection from the Great Salt Lake to Utah Lake for pedestrians, cyclists, and more. The FrontRunner Commuter Rail runs from Pleasant View to Provo and provides a link to
several TRAX and local bus routes providing access to many of the region’s major employment, entertainment, education, recreation, and living opportunities. South Jordan City owns many of the parcels directly west of the Jordan River; the majority of the parcels to the east of the river, which are home to several sensitive bird species, are privately owned.
Anchored by the historically and environmentally significant Jordan River, this subarea is not living up to its potential as either a transit oriented corridor or a natural feature to celebrate the river. This study focuses on creating a vibrant, pedestrian oriented area of a mix of uses including high density housing and commercial development balanced with the right amount of preservation and recreation opportunities along the river.

  • During outreach for the General Plan, many people called out Redwood Road and the Jordan River Corridor as areas for future improvement. 

    In response, we are creating a Sub Area plan, building off the visions and goals of the General Plan, to guide future development/redevelopment of these areas.
