ACCORDING TO UTE INDIAN LEGEND, the mountains that surround Salt Lake Valley were created by the great spirit Manitou, who took rock and dust from the sky’s floor and swept them through a hole in the sky. With the help of rain, snow and Tavaci (the sun), the mountains became even more beautiful. Manitou was very pleased.

The land, which encompasses 47-acres, was incorporated into Cottonwood Heights in 2005. Due to the uniqueness of the location of the property, a number of hurdles had to be made in order for the development to move forward. This included the design and development of an entrance and approach into the community, along with utility access. The gated community of Tavaci consists of 43, 1 acre+ sized lots.
