About the Metro Township

The Emigration Canyon Metro Township is a Utah municipality. As such it is a governmental entity with general police powers.  It can, within its jurisdiction, create and enforce laws; and it has limited taxing power.  It was created by a vote of the residents of Emigration Canyon in 2015.  The Township is governed by an elected council consisting of five members, one of whom is selected by the others to be the mayor.  The Council is the legislative body of the Township.  The mayor is the chief executive officer of the Township.


The Township has all of the municipal powers available to Utah municipalities under the Utah Municipal Code with the exception of certain taxing powers.  It does not have the power to enact a property tax or municipal energy taxes (sometimes called franchise taxes).


The Township council has the authority to enact laws and ordinances to carry out its responsibilities such as land use and development regulations (zoning). As long as these laws are not inconsistent with the Utah Municipal Code and other state statutes.

Road Construction


“Construction is scheduled to begin next week (the third week of June) on the Pinecrest Canyon Road Pavement Project. The first few weeks of construction will consist of work near the Emigration Canyon Road/Pinecrest Canyon Road Intersection and may include intermittent and temporary road closures in that area. Local access will be provided to residents during this time, but short delays may occur. Flyers and updated messaging will be provided as the project progresses. We appreciate your patience and understanding during these construction efforts. Thank you.”
