West Jordan's master plan virtually completed a two-year overhaul process with its adoption Tuesday evening by the City Council.
Approximately 100 West Jordan residents serving on a Master Plan Committee have spent the past two years dissecting the city's 1980 master plan. With the committee's support and a positive recommendation from the Planning Commission, the council chose Tuesday to separate an unresolved land-planning issue involving Salt Lake Airport No. 2 so the rest of the planning document could be passed and put to use.City Manager Ron Olson said a separate master plan for the airport is also being developed. The land use issues can be settled for undeveloped property surrounding the airport once that master plan is completed, possibly later this summer.
A process for amending the master plan has yet to be established, Olson said. City Planner Keith Snarr said an annual master plan review has been suggested, and amendments to the plan could be considered during those reviews.
