  About West Valley City and its Consumers

West Valley City, a suburb of Salt Lake City, is located in Utah's Salt Lake County. Situated about 8 miles southwest of Salt Lake City and 41 miles northwest of Provo, West Valley City affords easy access to nearby cities via Interstate Highways I-15 and I-80; as well as Utah State Highways 173 and 201. With a population in six figures, West Valley City is one of the largest cities in the state of Utah. Part of an area which had been largely agricultural for over one hundred years, West Valley City was formed from a conglomeration of the four separate communities of Hunter, Granger, Chesterfield, and Redwood. In 1980, these four unincorporated communities merged to incorporate as West Valley City, only to face a strong challenge a week later in the form of a campaign to do away with the new city. The campaign had enough petitioners to successfully persuade the state’s court system to order a disincorporation election a mere three months after the original incorporation vote. By a mere 72 votes, voters rejected the effort to disincorporate and West Valley City survived.
