All about Cottonwood
Cottonwood Heights is a city located in Salt Lake County, Utah, United States, along the east bench of the Salt Lake Valley. It lies south of the cities of Holladay and Murray, east of Midvale, and north of Sandy within the Salt Lake City, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area. Following a successful incorporation referendum in May 2004, the city was incorporated on January 14, 2005. Cottonwood Heights had been a Census-designated place (CDP) before incorporation. The population as of the 2010 census was 33,433. This is a significant increase over the CDP’s 2000 census count of 27,569.
In 2007, Money magazine rated Cottonwood Heights at #100 on their Best Places to Live list.
Geography of Cottonwood
As the city’s name suggests, its geography is dominated by a high ridge separating the valleys of the Big and Little Cottonwood Creeks. At the eastern edge of the city, these valleys narrow into the Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons within the Wasatch Mountains, respectively; this is reflected by the city’s official nickname, “City between the canyons”. The ridge is covered in suburban housing, but most commercial development has been restricted to the lower-lying areas north of the ridge (along Fort Union Boulevard, in Fort Union itself, and near Big Cottonwood Creek and the “Old Mill” in the northeast corner of the city).
State Route 190 and State Route 210 run near the eastern edge of the city and provide access to the canyons; they are the only state routes that enter the city. Interstate 215 runs along the northern border of the city and State Route 152 touches the city at a point. The city is building a multi-use trail along the full length of Big Cottonwood Creek within its borders.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP had a total area of 6.8 square miles (17.6 km2), all land.
Demographics of Cottonwood
According to estimates from the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute of the University of Utah, as of 2015, there were 34,234 people in Cottonwood Heights.
