Discover the Charm of Vineyard, UT: Nestled in the heart of Utah County, Vineyard is a place of natural beauty and remarkable growth. Surrounded by breathtaking lakeside views, with the Wasatch Mountain Range to the east and Utah Lake to the west, Vineyard offers the perfect blend of rural charm and modern convenience. The city's population has surged from 200 residents in 2000 to over 20,000 in 2023, making it one of the nation's fastest-growing areas.

Vineyard is your gateway to adventure, with easy access to five national parks, six national forests, seven national monuments, fourteen world-class ski resorts, and countless acres of diverse outdoor terrain. It's a place where you can build a career while enjoying a quality lifestyle.

At the heart of the growth lies Vineyard's downtown development – Utah City. The incoming City Manager will play a crucial role in planning, promoting, and advocating for this exciting new development.

Utah City is poised for success, with the world-class Huntsman Cancer Institute announcing plans for a second campus within its borders. This initiative, in partnership with the University of Utah, will co-design a community and cancer center for collaboration, discovery, and health promotion. Additionally, Utah City is welcoming Bella's Market, a custom-concept grocery store designed for gathering and featuring large windows, natural light, greenery, touchless checkout, and in-city delivery services. The City Manager will work closely with the development team to bring this and the entire vision of Utah City to life.

Fostering Growth: The City Manager will play a key role in fostering Vineyard's unique regional identity through strategic economic development efforts.

Tax Increment Financing: Vineyard's Redevelopment Agency, one of Utah's largest, provides essential infrastructure funding through tax increment financing, allowing proactive community development.

Utah Valley University Campus:  Home to 250 acres of the largest university in the state, the City Manager will maintain strong relationships with university stakeholders and align their plans with the city's development goals.

 Developing Staff: The City Manager will support the development of long-range staffing plans and oversee staff growth and retention.
