Orem has seen tremendous economic growth in 2018.
The top five news stories of 2018 reflect that economic strength and growth, as well as changes that pegged some residents against each other and the city.
5. Orem’s parks
Orem continued its momentum this year in investing in its existing parks, which was the request of residents who voted to continue the CARE Tax program.
Orem residents are no more than a half-mile away from any city park. In 2018, the city also added a trail bike training park, pickleball courts and did several upgrades to existing city parks.
