Why I LOVE Mapleton Utah . . .

Paul lives in Mapleton with his wife and six children. Mapleton City is nestled against the majestic foothills of Sierra Bonita Mountain in the Wasatch Range. A unique community having the advantage of 60 percent of the land being undeveloped within the corporate boundaries of the City. The rural atmosphere combined with the friendliness of its citizens have attracted an influx of new residents to the area. The current population is approximately 7,997 with the State projecting a population of 20,000 in the Year 2020.

To avoid jeopardizing the open space ambiance and spectacular views in every direction, the City has been and will be pro-active in its planning scope to accommodate diversified residential, commercial, and recreational interests.

Mapleton is still a somewhat rural area, but is rapidly suburbanizing in the wake of development. Numerous large subdivisions like Triple Crown, Harvest Park and Eagle Rock have been approved in recent years. None of the city touches the I-15, which has kept the city more rural than neighboring Springville Utah and Spanish Fork Utah. The main artery through town is US89. Mapleton uses innovative planning techniques, including Transferable Development Rights (TDRs) to preserve the foothills. Mapleton retains a small town charm. Many of the homes are located on large lots with most minimum lot sizes ranging from one-third acre to 2 acres.  Buyers will find many one acre lots in Mapleton.
