• Transportation Master Plan 

    Orem City is updating our Transportation Master Plan (TMP) and would like to hear your input on where transportation improvements are needed. We have set up a hotline, email, and interactive website for public comment. On the new website, users can geographically pinpoint an exact location on three interactive maps and comment where they would like to see new, specific transportation improvements. The interactive maps display current and planned facilities for:

    1. ROADWAY/TRAFFIC/SIGNALS
    2. TRANSIT AND PARKING
    3. BIKE & PEDESTRIAN ROUTES

    As the planning process progresses, the study team will review concepts on significant projects and seek public comment to help build the Orem City’s Transportation Master Plan. Once the planning process is complete, the City will begin implementing the plan. Each process will be prioritized based on the amount of people it positively affects within the community.

    We want to hear your input on these topics. Be an active part of the plan at: http://www.oremtmp.com/

    If you would like to speak to a project representative to comment, please call or email our team at:

About Orem City

The City of Orem was organized in 1919 and named after Walter C. Orem, President of the Salt Lake and Utah Railroad. Orem is now the commercial and technological center for Central Utah and is one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the United States. Housing, educational, and employment opportunities continue to be in high demand as Orem's population passes 91,000 residents.

The City of Orem is located on the eastern shore of Utah Lake and extends on the east to Provo and the foothills of Mount Timpanogos. It shares the general location with Provo, and its history is closely related to that of Provo. Its recent explosive development and growth have resulted in Orem becoming the fifth-largest city in Utah according to the 2010 US Census.
