SALT LAKE CITY (Nov. 28, 2017) — Public input is being sought for five development scenarios outlining possibilities for future growth of the Point of the Mountain region.
During a presentation to the Utah Legislature’s Point of the Mountain Development Commission at the Utah State Capitol on Tuesday, Envision Utah unveiled showed what the region could look like in 2050 according to specific development priorities.
Each of the five scenarios include varying levels of focus on residential and commercial development; transportation infrastructure; job growth and workforce development; and air quality, open space, recreation and water use.
The Point of the Mountain Development Commission will host two workshops to gather public feedback on the five scenarios:
- Wednesday, Nov. 29, 6 p.m. at the Ashton Gardens Visitor Center in Lehi
- Thursday, Nov. 30, 6 p.m. at the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium in Draper
Residents may also weigh in on the scenarios through a survey on pointofthemountainfuture.org until Dec. 31, 2017.
The Point of the Mountain Development Commission was created during the 2016 Legislative Session by H.B. 318. The commission is a unique entity comprised of local officials, private sector representatives, and state officials from both the legislative and executive branches. It is tasked with providing recommendations on infrastructure planning and financing tools to develop the area joining Salt Lake and Utah Counties.
