Kearns is a township and census-designated place (CDP) in Salt Lake County, Utah, United States. Named after Utah's U.S. Senator Thomas Kearns, it had a population of 35,731 at the 2010 Census. This was a 6.2 percent increase over the 2000 figure of 33,659. A recently elected community council is expected to call for a vote of incorporation in the near future, since Utah's current township law expires in 2010. If the law is not extended, it would either have to revert to its former status as an unincorporated area of the county, incorporate as a city, or be annexed into a nearby town. It is most likely it will stay an unincorporated community after the vote.
Actor and entertainer Palmer Scott was raised in Kearns from 1956 to 1980.
