Regional Transportation Plan 2040: Plans, Priorities and Perceptions
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times" is the famous first line from Dicken's Tale of Two Cities; and, with some context, is a perfect explanation of the Transportation community in Utah. The State boasts one of the highest growth rates in the Country, is consistently home to some of the top rated cities in the Nation, and maintains a transit system that rivals those of much larger cities in the U.S.
Though not every idea coming out of the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) will become reality, an attempt is being made to fund the highest and most pressing priorities.

Mayor McAdams' Metro Solutions Symposium
The Salt Lake Valley is changing. As the region becomes increasingly urban, policymakers are working to ensure that people can live and work close to the things they need.

Creating Cohesive Communities
Historic and master-planned communities feature buildings, parks, streets, and parking organized to create a cohesive community. However, most areas are comprised of small pieces of land, each owned separately. This ownership pattern often leads to just a collection of adjacent developments. What strategies can help landowners better coordinate with each other and local governments? How can we all achieve buildings and streets that relate to each other, coordinate parking, put density in the best places, and create high quality parks and plazas in the midst of fragmented parcel ownership? Join us to learn more about this exciting topic.
