Herriman (/ˈhɛrɪmən/ HERR-ih-mən) is a city in southwestern Salt Lake County, Utah, United States. The population was 21,785 as of the 2010 census. Although Herriman was a town in 2000,[4] it has since been classified as a fourth-class city by state law.[6] The city has experienced rapid growth since incorporation in 1999, as its population was just 1,523 at the 2000 census.[7] It grew from being the 111th-largest incorporated place in Utah in 2000 to the 32nd-largest in 2010.

History

Founding

Herriman was established in 1851 by Henry Harriman, Thomas Jefferson Butterfield, John Jay Stocking, and Robert Cowan Petty.[8] A fort was established where the community garden is today. The only remnants of Fort Herriman are the two black locust trees that stand where the entrance to the fort once was. The Fort was abandoned in 1857 as the Johnston Army came West.

Incorporation

Herriman remained a small community until 1999 when proactive citizens including Brett Wood and J. Lynn Crane went door to door asking people to sign a petition to be incorporated into a town. In 1998 Rose Creek Estates, developed by Watt Homes, started the first "subdivision" with property under 1 acre. Later, Rosecrest, a land developer who acquired some rights in a large area around Herriman, and started large scale residential development.[9] Rosecrest is owned by parent company Sorenson Companies[10] founded by the late James LeVoy Sorenson and currently managed by his son.[citation needed] In 2007, Rosecrest won a lawsuit with partner land owners/developers that allowed about 4,000 acres (16 km2) to be annexed out of neighboring city Bluffdale into Herriman to further expand the Rosecrest/Herriman housing projects.[11] The lawsuit stemmed from a struggle between Bluffdale city officials, strict city building requirements, and Rosecrest.[11] The addition of Rosecrest greatly brought up Herriman's population and enabled the town to be turned into a city.

Natural disasters

Flooding

In 2014, the cemetery on Pioneer Street flooded, leaving many graves washed up. The City restored most of the graves and put drainage in to accommodate for future issues.
In 2018, a water line broke on 13400 S. causing flooding to businesses and houses. The main line broke due to a gardening tool hitting the water line.

Fires

Often, the City experiences fires. In 2018, a youth was playing with smoke bombs in dry grass resulting in 160 acres burnt and 3 houses destroyed. The exposed mountains, dry brush, and open fields make Herriman highly susceptible to fires.

Machine Gun Fire

On September 19, 2010, the National Guard was performing an exercise at Camp Williams, south of Herriman, when a tracer bullet likely struck a rock, setting off a 3,500 acres (14 km2) wildfire.[12] Unified Fire Authority members mobilized and were able to arrest the progress of the fire, but not before 3 homes were destroyed and another damaged. Various small structures were also affected. Over 1,200 homes were evacuated in the face of the oncoming danger, with most of them able to return by Tuesday, September 21, 2010.

Geography

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 20.3 square miles (52.5 km2), all land. The city frequently annexes new areas to the west and east of its borders. The newest annexation was in 2018 when part of Kennecott Copper Mine's land was annexed in to make way for technology centers.

Herriman shares borders with Riverton to the east, South Jordan to the north, and Bluffdale to the southeast.
