Your Utah. Your Future.
CAN LIFE IN UTAH GET BETTER AS OUR POPULATION GETS BIGGER?
The answer is yes, but only if we work together. Envision Utah is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization committed to exploring the challenges and opportunities of growth in Utah. We bring together citizens from across the state and give them a voice to create and sustain communities that are beautiful, prosperous, healthy and neighborly. With the right vision, we can accommodate Utahâ€™s growing economy and increasing population without sacrificing the incredible quality of life that makes Utah great.
YOUR UTAH. YOUR FUTURE.
In 1997 Envision Utah hosted a historic series of workshops and surveys that ended
up laying the groundwork for actions including TRAX, Frontrunner, Daybreak, City
Creek, water conservation and more.
With Utahâ€™s population projected to grow by 2.5 million in the next three decades,
Envision Utah is making history again with the Your Utah Your Future project, a statewide
process that invites the public to get involved and decide how Utah will grow.
50,000 VOICES STRONG
Our goal is to make history by involving 50,000 Utah citizens and use the results to create a voice for the future that's strong enough to drive positive action.
