Saratoga Springs is a city in Utah County, Utah, United States. The elevation is 4,505 feet. It is part of the Provo–Orem, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area. The city is a relatively new development along the northwestern shores of Utah Lake. It was incorporated on December 31, 1997, and has been growing rapidly since then. The population was 1,003 at the 2000 census, while the 2009 estimates placed it at 16,125, making it one of the fastest-growing US cities during this time period. The 2010 census states population at 17,781, meeting expectations of growth despite the state of the economy. Saratoga Springs became a city in 2001.
The City was formed and developed by a group of landowners desiring to develop lakeside and foothill properties and build upon the spectacular view and resort style history of the region. Near the mouth of the Jordan River, there are natural hot springs that inspired early settlers in the area to create a resort known as Beck’s Saratoga Springs, named after the original Saratoga Springs, New York resort and Mr. John Beck the owner. The resort was opened in 1884 and also served as a home for the Beck family for many years.
In the early 1990’s, landowners began to investigate the possibilities of developing the land around the hot springs and in the foothill locations of Lake Mountain. The Utah County land development ordinances were not sufficiently urban in nature so several landowners sought incorporation as a town. Subsequently, Saratoga Springs incorporated in December of 1997. Several hundred acres have since been annexed into the City limits and the City now has a linear shape running north and south.
