Hospital moves COVID-19 testingThe curbside COVID-19 testing location at Bear River Valley Hospital has been moved to the north side of the facility. Those wishing to be tested can enter from the east; all COVID-19 testing is done at the drive-through. Ancillary services, which had been offered curbside on the north side, will now be offered on the west side of the facility near the Emergency Department.

Tremonton seeks public input on land useTremonton City is seeking public input as it goes through the process of creating an integrated land use plan, a critical document that provides an overarching vision from which future growth and development of the city will be guided. As such, it is critical to ensure that the plan reflects the long-term needs of Tremonton City and its residents.

Public engagement is taking place at three key stages during the anticipated 12-month planning period. The first step, scoping, is to listen and learn what residents envision for the next 10 to 20 years.

This online engagement tool allows users to provide location-based comments on an interactive map, fill out a brief questionnaire, and take part in a visual preference survey. All of these tools are designed to help city leaders understand the issues, ideas and opportunities in Tremonton.
