 Proposed Project & Information 

Provided by Applicant


This application is for the rezoning of a parcel of land located at 2890 Spanish Valley Dr. Moab, Utah 84532. The lot is currently zoned Rural Residential (RR) and the request is being made to zone to Small Lot Residential (SLR).  


The purpose of this rezone is to allow the construction of rental housing for long-term local business employees.


The need for long-term housing for local employees is self-evident in Moab, with many businesses struggling to maintain long-term employees due to a lack of long-term housing. The proposed rezone of the area helps address this issue.


With the owners/investors sub-dividing their primary residential lot, the intention is to build long-term rental housing while maintaining a residential neighborhood that is a pleasure to live in.


The surrounding areas are commercial use, campground, farm land, HDHO, and both small lot and rural residential. Additionally, the proposed Spanish Valley Drive Multi Use Path crosses directly in front of the lot.
