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 by December 2014.
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.

First Set of Public Open House Meetings Held!
On September 8th and 9th, the project team held two interactive open house meetings, one in Herriman and one in Saratoga Springs. At each meeting, team members from participating communities staffed informational booths. In addition, Camp Williams also volunteered to staff its own booth. Residents, property owners and other interested parties visited with the team members to learn about the Implementation project, draft work products, and the status of related efforts and initiatives in their particular communities. Many had excellent questions and suggestions for the team and we anticipate additional input being provided via this web page's email link. Patrons were also provided with informational brochures, containing maps, descriptions of the different project elements and other specifics. Of particular value was the chance to meet and talk directly with representatives of each community.
Suggestions and input from participants will now be evaluated by the project's Policy Committee and the consultant, and revisions to draft products will be made as necessary. Additional public review of the final products will take place within the next few months. The project is scheduled to be completed no later than March 2015.
