Northeast Utah Dominates ‘Cities on the Rise’

Press Release

July 2, 2014

San Francisco – NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy website, recently ranked the fastest-growing cities in Utah. The top 10 (listed in order of rank) are Holladay, Provo, Clearfield, Riverton, Roy, Springville, Lehi, Clinton, Spanish Fork and South Salt Lake.

To find the fastest-growing cities in Utah, NerdWallet evaluated towns and census-designated places and examined population growth, employment growth and income growth

Utah is growing fast: The state’s population has doubled in the past 30 years, and planners expect the state will add another 2.5 million people by 2050. Two cities in this region, Lehi and South Jordan, are among the 10 fastest-growing cities in the nation, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

"Utah's cities on the rise are among the fastest-growing in the nation," said Maggie Clark, an analyst with NerdWallet. "The state's booming technology sector in the Silicon Slopes region, combined with having the nation's lowest median age (30.2 years old) and high birth rates will keep Utah among the nation's fastest-growing states for years to come.”
