The town of Vineyard entered into an agreement in 2006 with Anderson Development (Geneva Steel) to develop the Vineyard Homesteads site, located in the southeast section of the town. Currently[when?]the site has been separated into 11 pods for sale to home builders and developers. This development, in addition to the development of the 1,750-acre (7.1 km2) Geneva Steel site, might add significant numbers to the population of Vineyard within the next decade.[citation needed]

A UTA Intermodal (including FrontRunner) station is planned and will be built at approximately 4700 North and 3100 West.[12]

On 3 November 2015, Vineyard held a municipal election for two open council seats (4 year terms). The vote was conducted by traditional and mail-in ballots. The preliminary results showed that Tyce Flake and Nathan Riley won the two seats.[17] Two weeks later on 17 November 2015, the final canvass results were revealed which showed Tyce Flake and Cory Judd as the winners. However, since Judd received only 1 more vote than Riley in the canvass, Riley demanded a recount based on Utah Code 20A-4-401 (1).[18] One week later, on 24 November 2015, the recount revealed that Tyce Flake received the most votes but Nathan Riley and Cory Judd received the same number of votes. Based on Utah Code - 20A-1-304 the candidates are required to cast lots.[19] Each candidate rolled 5 dice. Riley won the tie breaker for the city council seat by rolling a 21 to Judd's 12.[20][21]

Vineyard had the highest voter turnout (61.3%) of any municipality in Utah County for the 2015 election. Vineyard was the only city in the county to vote in favor of a progressive transportation tax increase to improve infrastructure and public transit (Proposition 1).[22]
