About Heber City

Heber City (usually known as Heber) is a city in Wasatch County, Utah, United States. The population was 7,291 at the 2000 census. Heber City was founded by English emigrants who were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the late 1840s, and is named after the Mormon apostle Heber C. Kimball. It is the county seat of Wasatch County. The city was largely pastoral, focusing largely on dairy farms and cattle ranching, and has since become a bedroom community for Orem, Provo, Park City and Salt Lake City.

Heber City is currently governed by Mayor David Phillips along with City Council Members Jeffery Bradshaw, Elizabeth Hokanson, Nile Horner, Robert Patterson, and Eric Straddeck.

The county high school, Wasatch High School, is located in Heber City. Heber City supports four LDS stakes, as well as congregations of Southern Baptists, Catholics as part of the Diocese of Salt Lake City, and Jehovah's Witnesses. Utah Valley University has a secondary campus north of Heber City along the US-40 corridor.

History

Heber City was first settled in 1859 by Robert Broadhead, James Davis and James Gurr. John W. Witt built the first house in the area. The area was under the direction of Bishop Silas Smith who was in Provo. In 1860 Joseph S. Murdock became the bishop over the Latter-day Saints in Heber City and vicinity.

Geography

Heber City is located at 40°30′24″N 111°24′44″W / 40.506793°N 111.412292°W / 40.506793; -111.412292 (40.506793, -111.412292), at an elevation of 5595 feet.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 3.5 square miles (8.9 km2), all of it land.

Heber City is in the neighborhood of three large reservoirs, Jordanelle, Deer Creek, and Strawberry.

Economy

The Heber Valley has seen the fastest-growing economy and has one of the lowest unemployment rates in Utah. Local developers and business leaders cite that there are not enough jobs in the city itself (as 27% of residents commute to Park City or Salt Lake City for work) and wish to improve the city's self-dependence. Average home prices in the valley doubled from 2002 - 2008 and the population has grown by 25% in that same time period.

Tourism is a year-round industry in the Heber Valley. The winter season features cross-country and downhill skiing on several trails and the nearby ski resorts of Park City. In the summer, golfing and other outdoor recreational activities are abundant. Heber is also home to the Heber Valley Historic Railroad (HVRR) also known as the Heber Creeper.

Heber City's youth are employed largely in the surrounding golf courses, restaurants, and specialty shops in Heber City and the surrounding area. The adult population work mostly in Park City, Salt Lake City, Provo and Orem. Farming was once a large force in the economy, but this has diminished slightly. The largest local employer is the Wasatch County School District.

Transportation

U.S. Route 40 and U.S. Route 189 both cross the city. Interstate 80 is located approximately eighteen miles north of the city and can be accessed via Highway 40 while Interstate 15 can be accessed via Highway 189 through Provo Canyon and is approximately twenty-five miles away. A typical drive to downtown Salt Lake City is approximately forty five minutes to one hour.

Heber City was connected to Provo by a 32 mile long railroad line. The line, completed in 1899, was used by Denver & Rio Grande Western until 1967. Today, a portion of the line is used by the famous Heber Valley Railroad, a heritage railroad open to the public.

The Heber City Municipal Airport is located to the south of the city, near the junction of U.S. Route 40 and U.S. Route 189, and is capable of handling small prop and jet traffic. During the winter ski season, and particularly the Sundance Film Festival, the airport is crowded with private aircraft as it is the closest airport to Park City. The airport is also home to the Heber Valley Airshow, held each summer. The nearest airport with commercial airline service is Salt Lake City International Airport.
