The Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC), in close collaboration with the Utah Department of Transportation, Utah Transit Authority, Utah League of Cities and Towns, and Utah Association of Counties, invites you to provide feedback regarding transportation projects in the Wasatch Choice 2050 (WC2050), a vision for the future of our region.
In 2017, cities, counties, community organizations, transportation partners, businesses, and the public explored three scenarios that articulated the trade-offs associated with different transportation, land use, and economic investments for the WC2050 Vision. Feedback was used to distill the three transportation and land use scenarios into a Draft Vision, which was endorsed by the Regional Council in 2018. The Vision provides a blueprint for the prioritization of roadway, transit, and active transportation projects in the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).
The RTP projects were initially planned based on need, as defined by a number of criteria, such as development patterns, roadway efficiency, economic development, access to opportunity, and safety. The needs-based projects are now being prioritized based on reasonably anticipated available funding, a process known as financially constraining the plan. WFRC and its transportation partners developed the draft financially constrained plan through identification of transportation funding sources dedicated to the costs of constructing, maintaining, and operating the multi-modal transportation system over the period of the long-range plan.
WFRC needs your input again to refine and finalize the financially constrained Draft 2019-2050 RTP. We invite you to provide your feedback on the proposed timing of the transportation projects via an interactive map. Comments will be accepted during the public comment period, which continues through Nov. 30, 2018. Please feel free to share this information with your friends, colleagues, and neighbors.
If you have any questions, please contact Jory Johner, Long-Range Planning Group Manager, at JJohner@wfrc.org or 801-363-4250.
