The Camp W.G. Williams Joint Land Use Study Implementation project will identify and develop specific actions that can be carried out by participating communities, which will help to reduce or avoid conflicts between the Camp and those communities. This collaboration will allow the Camp to continue providing substantial economic contributions to the region, and sustain its military mission. In addition, participating communities will be better able to pursue their housing, land use, transportation and economic development goals and objectives.
The City of Eagle Mountain is the project’s sponsor and a Committee of leadership and staff from participating communities has been created to oversee the project. Initiated in December of 2013, its anticipated that the project will be completed in early 2015.
Please spend some time and review the information provided via the tabs at the top of the page. As the project moves forward we’ll be posting new items so bookmark the page in your favorites and stop back often!
The very first Camp Williams Iron Will event was a tremendous success and far exceeded anyone's expectations! Roughly 1,000 athletes participated on a gorgeous Spring day. In addition to the races, there were games and activities for children and families to enjoy on the parade grounds. Food concessions offered everything from hot dogs and barbeque to snow cones. Patrons were also able to purchase unique gifts in the Camp store. Opening remarks were provided by Governor Herbert, Major General Jeff Burton and Lieutenant Colonel Smith. Local communities pitched in with financial support, displays and manpower. Matrix provided a "Friends of Camp Williams" booth offering information about the JLUS Implementation project. Many patrons stopped by to ask questions and offer support for the Camp and the project.

The second and final round of public meetings were held on February 4, 2015 in Herriman and on February 5, 2015 in Saratoga Springs. The consultants presented a power point focused on the Committee's final recommendations. These recommendations are contained in a comprehensive binder, copies of which were made available at the meetings for public review. In addition, a digital copy in pdf format will be located in the library section of this web page, accessed via the drop down menu under the Resources tab above.
The final report contains all of the primary project deliverables including the following:
- A detailed and comprehensive Military Compatibility Area Overlay District (MCAOD) regulation and associated maps.
- Specific recommended language for disclosures in the form of notes on subdivision and site plan "plats" as well as language that could be used in purchase/sale contracts and other transactional documents on a voluntary basis.
- Informational brochures for each participating community. These can be placed on community web pages and other linked sites. In addition, communities will be provided with electronic versions that can be used for printing hard copy to be made available at City Halls, local libraries and at other similar facilities.
- Detailed analyses of each participating communities land use regulations and general plans, including recommendations for adjustments that would enhance compatibility between each community and Camp Williams.
- Zoning maps showing the locations of the military compatibility areas for lighting, noise and vibration, aviation safety and land use. These maps can be used by property owners, City staff and others to evaluate potential compatibility issues and assist in identifying mitigation options.
- Specific recommendations for enhanced communication and coordination between Camp Williams and participating communities, including as to potential general plan amendments and proposed projects located within the four military compatibility areas.
- A comprehensive analysis and related findings concerning the feasibility of a coordinated regional agricultural preservation overlay initiative, as a potential means of accomplishing compatibility objectives.
- The project emphasis will now shift to community leadership, who will need to evaluate and determine organizational and procedural options necessary to move forward with the Committee's recommendations. This will likely include at a minimum, a presentation of the final report to each participating community's Council or Board of Supervisors and a request for endorsement of the report.
