Temporary land use regulations are used by municipalities and counties in times of emergency. (i.e. When the legislative body decides the normal public process is too slow to address a critically important situation.)
Utah Code establishes the parameters for how temporary land use regulations/moratoriums can be used. For a municipality the use of temporary land use regulations/moratoriums is governed by §10-9a-504. Counties are governed by §17-27a-504. Even though the requirements may be located in different portions of Utah State Code, the rules for both levels of local government are the same.
