As the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) plans for future transit service in Salt Lake County, there is recognition of a relationship between transit-supportive land use and a successful transit system. Southwest Salt Lake County will help UTA to gain an understanding of the ridership that different land uses will generate.
Under the supervision of a steering committee, which represents a broad variety of interests from UTA and the Southwest Salt Lake County area, Envision Utah is conducting a transparent process that will create a public vision for a proposed transit line that will connect the communities of South Jordan, Herriman, Riverton and Draper.
This project will explore the market affecting the potential for Transit Oriented Development along the corridor and project a range of residential and commercial development that could be built over time. The study will also assist in refining the transit alignment and mode based on these expected future land uses.
