News and Events
Just over a year ago, Rockville Town initiated a project to update our land use ordinances and general plan. In order to do this, we asked consultants to undertake a critical review of our current ordinances to ensure that they are compliant with state and federal statute, simplify and clarify certain regulations, and simplify language and formatting, and improve access to the enabling ordinances that created the regulations. The Town also conducted a new public survey. The work of the consulting firm is now substantially complete and we are inviting you to provide your feedback. The table at this link is intended to show the current regulations and what changes are being proposed. It is anticipated that the Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the proposed changes in the coming months.
The Hurricane Valley Fire District uses the Washington County Interagency
Burn Permit Management website for all burn permits.
Spring Burn season is March 1 through May 30th
Fall Burn season is September 15 through November 15
You can access the Burn Permit by clicking on the link below.
The Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Land
has obtained a grant to remove invasive Russian Olive and Tamarisks from Rockville in 2020!
This is your opportunity to rid yourself of these invasive species at no cost to you!!!
If interested, forms are available in the Town Office.
Phase I will be contracted out within the next month and will be cut in March. This treatment is at no cost to the landowner (if they fall within the project boundary), and if funds are available one re-treatment will be conducted the following year. The treatment will be cutting Tamarisk and Russian Olive and spraying the stumps with herbicide immediately after to limit re-sprouting.
Phase II will be contracted in the fall. So any landowners who don't make the first round will have a chance in the fall to sign up.
Here are some informational pamphlets:
