There is a strong sense of community, because though we’re part of a large string of highly-populated cities, Lindon itself is small enough and tight-knit enough that I feel I know what’s going on here and that the people really care about each other.

Lindon Stories

Share an experience you’ve had in Lindon (fun, crazy, dangerous, etc.).

  • During Lindon Days we love to catch fish in the creek in honor of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn! (Maren, 9 years)
  • My neighbors are the best the world has to offer! We get together for BBQs in the summer and have incredible memories with them! (Sheron, 14 years)
  • When we moved here 30 years ago, there was not even a stoplight on state street at the Kneaders intersection. It has grown so much in just 30 years! We felt like we had really moved to the country. We laughed when we saw a church building on the east side with a sign that said, “Please don’t park your horses on the lawn.” We thought, “Wow, we’re really in the country now.” Everybody had a garden back in those days. Many expert gardeners. (Linda, 30 years)
  • I have 40+ years worth. (DeAnn, 44 years)

Lindon’s Future

How do you think Lindon will change over the next 10 years?

  • More apartments and condos. Busier roads and Lindon will probably need to add a couple more schools. (Maren, 9 years)
  • I believe our comparatively large property sizes will attract a lot of wealthier individuals, buying the property, building a large home that takes up most of the space. Maybe not in 10 years, but I see it becoming a “rich person’s community,” like Holladay, that’s difficult to price into. (Amy, 10 years)
  • Hopefully not at all. (Meg, 10 years)
  • Too much high density housing creates issues. I’m afraid it’s going to get rough on the west side. (Sheron, 14 years)
  • Probably too many people. (Rachel, 20 years)
  • With all the multi unit homes being built, it will definitely get busier. It’s sad to see the wide open spaces disappear. We have loved having a 1/2 acre lot and the way our homes are spread out. (Linda, 30 years)
  • Losing the Little Bit Of Country Style. (DeAnn, 44 years)
