Davis County Planning Department is charged to uphold the health, welfare, and safety of the residents in the unincorporated county. Davis County's role is to coordinate and assist the municipalities in addressing issues of regional significance. Davis County will function as a regional forum for discussion and policy making, and is not a substitute for local government.
Davis County Development Policy
Davis County has limited ability to provide the urban services normally required in highly developed areas, such as water service, garbage pick-up, police and fire protection, road maintenance, and so on. The Davis County Commission believes that municipalities are best suited to provide urban services, therefore, development proposals are encouraged to annex into nearby cities wherever feasible.
