Did you know that when you shop locally, more of your hard-earned money stays within the city and helps foster a vibrant and sustainable community?

In an attempt to help residents get to know local retail and service providers a little better, Cottonwood Heights has created its Business Networking Program. This program is a way for businesses to get the word out about their services and offer promotions to residents, who can then save money by taking advantage of deals and discounts.

Here’s how it works: each week, the city will feature a local business on its website as well as on Facebook and Twitter. We will include information about the business, its services and products, and any promotions they are willing to offer.

Residents can learn about businesses and check out promotions just by following the city’s social networking pages. To follow us on Facebook, all you have to do is go to and “like” us in order for updates to show up in your news feed.

On Twitter, follow @CHCity. Don’t have a Twitter account? Not a problem! Just text “Follow @CHCity” to 40404. You will receive the city’s tweets as texts to your phone without having to sign up for a Twitter account.

Businesses can participate by filling out the Business Networking Program application on the city’s website. All businesses must be licensed with the city in order to participate.

Let’s work together to keep our community strong!
