About Taylorsville, Utah

The City of Taylorsville was incorporated on July 1, 1996 through the grassroots efforts of citizens who developed a vision that would provide greater local control of community planning, economic development, and municipal service delivery. With approximately 60,100 residents, the city is the eighth largest in Utah and the fourth largest in Salt Lake Valley. The central location in the Salt Lake Valley is ideal, with easy access to Interstate 215, Interstate 15, and the light rail system. It is also within 15 minutes of the Salt Lake International Airport.

Taylorsville has a thriving business base. Companies like American Express, Convergys Corporation, Abbott Critical Care, Data Chem Laboratories, Unibase Data Entry and Nelson Laboratories have discovered the city's advantages, including no franchise taxes.

Central to the education community is the Salt Lake Community College. More than 24,000 matriculated students from around the valley are taking courses. The Community College has the second largest student body in the Utah system of higher education. ITT Technical Institute, Taylorsville High School and several junior high schools emphasize Taylorsville's focus on education.

Taylorsville's community pride is expressed in many different ways - well groomed yards, friendly hello's, but possibly the most apparent expression of community pride is volunteerism. Several hundred volunteers make up numerous city committees and thousands more are involved in city events, religious undertakings and educational activities.
