Economic Development

The picturesque Heber Valley, located in the heart of Wasatch County, has become a highly coveted destination to live, work, and play.  Situated only 25 minutes from the Provo/Orem metropolitan statistical area, and only 45 minutes from Salt Lake City, the Heber Valley enjoys a close proximity to large markets while still maintaining a small-town charm and an unparalleled quality of life. Since hosting two Olympic Game championships in 2002, the population of Wasatch County has increased by 65 percent.  According to 2018 U.S. Census Bureau data, Wasatch County is the third-fastest growing county in the United States while Heber City was ranked as the fastest growing micropolitan city in America.
