A Southern Utah Town Is One Of Utah’s Newest
I recently told you about The Point, the first 15-minute neighborhood in the U.S. and while I was searching for information on The Point, I came across information about Erda, Utah’s newest city. After that, it took some searching to find a list of Utah municipalities all collected in one place, but thanks to Wikipedia, I was able to look these municipalities up. We'll go through these cities and towns from "oldest" to "newest".
To start things off, we're going to head to Washington County:
Apple Valley: located in Washington County, Apple Valley has a population of 855 residents and became a town in 2004.
Hideout: also located in Wasatch County, Hideout has a population of 922 residents and became a town in 2005.
Independence: also located in Wasatch County, Independence has a population of 121 residents and became a town in 2008.
Interlaken: located in Wasatch County in the Heber Valley and with a population of 179 residents, Interlaken became a town in 2015. Interlaken is designed to resemble an Alps community.
And for the newest city, we stay in northern Utah:
Erda: located in Tooele County and has a population of 3,000 residents, Erda became a city in 2022.
