Cedar Hills came into being towards the tail end of the baby boomer generation. It was incorporated in 1977, making it one of the youngest towns in the United States.
Over the past few decades, Cedar Hills has become _the _place to live if you want to live in Utah. People love the enthusiasm and involvement community members take in their shared lives; there is a lively community forum where anyone can go voice his or her opinion.
Moving to Cedar Hills
Cedar Hills has plenty of room for you, but that doesn't mean you should wait til the last minute to start looking for apartments. The relatively low rents in many areas of the city makes apartments attractive to all sorts of people, so you should start looking three to six months before you make your move. Remember that once you find an apartment, you will need to set up city services such as electricity, water and garbage collection prior to move in. Allow several weeks to establish your account with the city.
If you're ready to move to Cedar Hills, start gathering your documents now. You should come prepared with proof of income and your credit history. In most cases, you'll have to pay first and last month's rent as well as a security deposit, so make sure you have your deposits in savings before you begin your search. Finally, get references from your current and previous landlord vouching for your ability to pay the rent on time, keep noise to reasonable levels and follow other apartment rules. If you have a pet, make sure his or her vaccinations are up to date and that your current landlord references the fact that the pet has not soiled or destroyed property.
