Alpine is a small city that has experienced recent growth in the past two decades. While the population currently stands at just under 10,000 residents, there is little to indicate that the growth will stop anytime soon. The city is named after the Swiss Alps, as this is what the prophet Brigham Young claimed the town reminded him of when he used to visit. For more than a century, families have called this area of Utah home, creating a sense of community that is not experienced many places in America these days. As part of the Metropolitan Provo area, the city benefits from great infrastructure and ample employment opportunities.
The city limits are comprised of roughly 7.4 square miles, with none of that area being covered with water. That being said, it is helpful to note that a number of small streams coming from the mountain continue to dot the city landscapes, kept running by the plentiful rainfall that tends to occur in this part of Utah every year. There are also a variety of hiking and mountain biking trails throughout Alpine, making this a great city to live in and participate in a variety of outdoor activities.
This is yet another family oriented small town in Utah, with only 6 percent of the population identifying as singe.

Reasons To Live Here
In addition to the variety of outdoor activities, fresh air, and great weather, Alpine is simply a great place to raise a family. The schools system is small, only consisting of four institutions.

Eagle Mountain, Utah is a fast-growing community only incorporated into the state in December of 1996.

With a population of just under 2,500, Elk Ridge is aptly named due to the herd of elk that historically call this region of Utah home for the winter. While it is a small town, the city itself is an important Provo suburb in numerous respects. The area itself is only comprised of roughly 2.7 square miles, within which an estimated 401 families live with the city limits. This gives residents a small town feel, while always being close to a neighbor, particularly given the population density of roughly 662 people per square mile.
Housing Market in the Region
As is understandable given its small size and community like atmosphere, people tend to move here and stay. As such, there are relatively few houses for sale or rent at any given moment in time, further contributing to a strong overall housing market. Houses retain their value well, with rental properties not being applicable due to low availability. Families tend to stay in the area for generations, and given the small land size available in Elk Ridge, there simply is not much room for future growth.
Opportunities in the Area
As a suburb of one of the major metropolitan areas in Utah, Elk Ridge has developed into a true family environment. Adults will find numerous employment opportunities in neighboring cities, contributing to a comparatively high standard of living. Most adults either commute to work in Provo, or are homemakers. Children have ample opportunities as well, with an excellent school system and various community activities to keep them busy. This is a primary reason that this region of the state is home to so many families, and the corresponding crime rate is extremely low.

It ranges from the eastern shore of a major lake and extends further east to Provo and the foothills of Mount Timpanogos.

Before being incorporated, it was known as the “Provo bench” and it supplemented Provo’s reputation as the “The Garden City of Utah” with its fertile farmlands. With little naturally occurring water in the area, the residents successfully moved to incorporate and the first accomplishment of the new town was to build a water system. The naming of the town was a gesture meant to attract the favor and potential investment of Salt Lake City’s most affluent citizen.
