The heart of our community and region, Central Heber is a destination area featuring unique shopping, dining, and gathering areas for residents and visitors who enjoy a welcoming and peaceful environment with a sense of history and place in a beautiful mountain valley. The Main Street District is our economic catalyst, featuring our historic center and working, living, and public gathering areas in a mixed use environment, which help support street level retail, restaurants, and entertainment. Outdoor-oriented local and regional recreation are features at our Recreation and Tourism District, which is the place to go to enjoy the train, rent a bike, enjoy a ballgame, or plan regional recreational adventures. Heber’s quiet central neighborhoods provide places to live that are rooted in our history while also conveniently located nearby places to work, play, shop and dine.
Main Street is characterized by a vibrant business environment and ample housing opportunities that support dining, shopping, playing, and gathering opportunities, providing a strong destination in the heart of Heber City. Historic Main (300 North to 300 South) features the richest suite of options for people to return to again and again, from restaurants and shops to inviting public spaces and streets, making the area a strong destination for residents and visitors.
The western gateway into Heber from Midway at 600 West and 100 South is anchored by a flex-space venue and plaza supporting recreational opportunities and lifestyle. It includes mixed uses focusing on meeting day-to-day needs of nearby residents and visitors, and supporting and expanding local and regional recreation and tourism opportunities. A small commercial area adjacent to the railroad depot provides convenient options for dining and services.
In central neighborhoods, changes to housing is typical of older neighborhoods: maintaining and enhancing existing homes, rebuilding those that owners deem are no longer satisfactory, and adding attached accessory dwelling units. The 100 South corridor between 600 West and Main includes new missing middle housing and neighborhood retail, restaurants, and services.
