History of South Jordan, Utah
Taken from the Utah History Encyclopedia (Links Added)

In 1993 the city included four elementary schools, South Jordan Middle School, and Bingham High School. The city was one of the wealthiest communities in Utah in 1993, with a median family income of $35,832. The population of South Jordan was 13,500 in June 1991, with approximately 1,300 people moving in each year.

The agrarian lifestyle which prevailed in South Jordan for its first century of existence has been preserved to some extent even as it became a third-class city in 1963 and as it has continued to expand in population ever since. South Jordan was reportedly the fastest growing city in the state during the early 1990s with a ten percent annual growth rate. Government and civic leaders have planned for controlled future development in order to preserve the "remarkable quality of life" and unique heritage found in South Jordan. Residing in South Jordan has been aptly termed "life just off the fast lane."
