Envision Utah assisted the four communities of South Salt Lake, West Jordan, Murray and Layton to evaluate potential land uses around existing and future transit stations. Staff worked with local residents and stakeholders to synthesize their wishes into a broadly and publicly supported plan. Each community's plan guides local development through design guidelines and ordinances. It also fostered each transit station becoming a "destination" of housing, retail, employment centers, entertainment and services.
The proactive planning of development around transit station is ensuring that our future transportation system is supported by smart land-use decision-making throughout the Greater Wasatch Area.
Details of these TOD studies can be found in the "Appendix A: Specific Station Area Plans" section of Envision Utah's "Wasatch Front Transit Oriented Development Guidelines" document linked below.
