Management Plan (CMP) prepared for a portion of Utah State Route 9 in
The Zion Scenic Byway CMP is a written
plan developed by the
communities along a scenic
byway corridor that outlines how to protect and enhance the byway's
qualities and character that define their byway corridor.

County Association of Governments was contracted by the Zion
Canyon Corridor Council (ZC3) to develop a CMP for a specific portion
The Five County AOG Community & Economic Development program staff
worked with the communities of Springdale, Rockville,
Virgin and LaVerkin on the development of a CMP for the portion of
SR-9 from the Junction of SR-9 and SR-17 in LaVerkin to the east
entrance of Zion National
This specific portion of the SR-9 corridor is being called the 'Zion Scenic Byway'
in the Corridor Management Plan document.
should be noted that the two state managed segments of SR-9 between
I-15 (at Harrisburg Junction) on the west end and U.S. 89 (Mt. Carmel
Junction) in Kane County at the east end are
already a State of Utah designated State Scenic Byway known as the
'Zion Park Scenic Byway'. Those
highway sections were designated as
a Scenic Byway by the state of Utah in the mid-1980s. This planning
process for the LaVerkin to Zion N.P. segment of SR-9 did not involve
of the remaining segments of SR-9 outside this study area.
Monthly work meetings with a CMP technical planning team
made up of AOG, local, county, state and federal agency staff and/or
officials were held to draft the Corridor Management Plan (CMP). The
the CMP is to identify, locate, and describe meaningful intrinsic
values along the corridor. The document is a locally developed general
plan for a coordinated and collaborative approach to marketing the
value added to the corridor communities by the corridor being
designated a scenic byway and provides a framework for later byway
interpretive implementation efforts. A locally developed CMP is also
necessary in the event the local jurisdictions along the corridor and
the state of Utah determine to apply to the National Scenic Byways
program for designation of the corridor as a national scenic
