12:15-1:15 p.m., S.J. Quinney College of Law, Moot Courtroom (Level 6)
Two themes have become central to the present and future of Utah: growth and change. Along the Wasatch Front, these dynamics present real challenges, but also provide for significant opportunity based on the choices we make as communities today. The Wasatch Choice 2050 process will establish a blueprint for growth that supports a well-functioning, inclusive economy, improves air quality, and enhances the overall quality of life for Utahns living across the Wasatch Front. This locally driven, regionally significant process will produce a strategy for future growth and a framework by which communities can craft and implement land use, transportation and economic plans for the future. This event will be streamed and recorded on the S.J. Quinney College of Law YouTube Channel »
