Granite is a census-designated place (CDP) in Salt Lake County, Utah, United States, adjoining the City of Sandy on the east. As of the 2000 census, the CDP population was 2,018, a decrease from the 1990 population of 3,300 largely due to annexations by Sandy.[citation needed] Salt Lake County has designated a Granite “Community Council” for purposes of planning and development. The Granite Community Council includes the area within the CDP as well as the rest of Little Cottonwood Canyon, extending to Snowbird and Alta.



Granite began as the site of the stone quarry for the Salt Lake Temple in 1859. By 1877 there were also several farmers in the area and an LDS ward was organized.[3]
