More InformationMapleton is still a somewhat rural area, but is rapidly suburbanizing in the wake of development. Numerous large subdivisions have been approved in recent years. None of the city touches I-15, which has kept the city more rural than neighboring Springville and Spanish Fork. The main artery through town is U.S. Route 89. Mapleton uses innovative planning techniques, including Transferable Development Rights (TDRs) to preserve the foothills. Mapleton retains a small town charm. Many of the homes are located on large lots with most minimum lot sizes ranging from one-third acre to 2 acres (8,100 m2).
There are two restaurants in Mapleton - the Model A Cafe, and Subway, both located at the intersection of Highway 89 and Maple Street.
Parks include Mapleton City Park (SE corner of Main and Maple Streets), Ira Allen Park (NW Corner of 800 West and 2000 South), Eagle Rock Park (~800 South 800 East), and North Park (~1400 West 1600 North).
Other landmarks include the "Old White Church" (LDS) at the SW corner of Main and Maple Streets, the Pioneer Heritage Museum and Levi Kendall Log Cabin located at 115 South Main Street, the Mapleton City Offices, located at 125 West Community Center Way (400 North), and the Mapleton City Public Works Building (1405 West 1600 North).
