Every good plan starts with a vision. Establishing a vision based on community values and public input is an integral part of the transportation planning process.
The Wasatch Front Regional Council and the Mountainland Association of Governments, with the aid of Envision Utah, created a land use and transportation vision for Weber, Davis, Salt Lake and Utah Counties, called the Wasatch Choice for 2040 (WC2040).
WC2040 has served as the basis for the planning of land use and transportation needs across the Wasatch Front. It is a pattern for growth built on community values through an extensive public input process. It encourages the development of town centers to accommodate growth in a way that enhances the overall quality of life for Utahns living across the Wasatch Front. In close collaboration with local officials, stakeholders and transportation partners, MPOs continue to make refinements to the vision that reflect the needs of their member communities.
