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.


Davis County Business License applications are for businesses within the unincorporated areas of Davis County. If you have any questions about what jurisdiction you reside in, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Home Occupations require a business license as well as a Conditional Use Application in most residential zones. Please contact the Planning Department if you intend on operating a home occupation located within the unincorporated county only.

Active Transportation Committee

The Davis County Active Transportation Committee is a group made up of elected officials and interested residents appointed by the mayors of each Davis County municipality. The Committee meets once a month to discuss trails of regional importance in Davis County.

The Committee is charged with finding funding sources to expand trail networks, as well as working with cities to help coordinate trail building efforts as a way to link communities. There is no statutory basis for its formation, and Committee decisions are recommendations to other legislative bodies.

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to coordinate with Davis County and Davis County cities, to plan open space, regional parks, on and off street bicycle facilities, and multi-modal trails, and to promote them as economic development drivers, and marketable tourism products.
