  • Created an online permitting checklist, increasing transparency for community members and solar installers
  • Reviewed local zoning codes and identified restrictions that intentionally or unintentionally prohibit solar PV development
  • Allowed solar by-right accessory use in all zones (so solar installations don’t require special permits or hearings)
  • Cross-trained both inspection and permitting staff on solar PV
  • Provided a streamlined permitting pathway for small PV systems
The City of Jordan is committed to the efficient use of our residents' resources, mindful of our impact on the environment, and focused on Government that works at the speed of commerce. The "Silver" designation from SolSmart touches on all three of those values. On behalf of the City, I'm very proud of what this says about our City leaders and staff, but especially our residents, who have embraced these values from day one.
- Mayor of Jordan, Mike Franklin
