Poll shows planning for future growth is a top priority for Utahns

A high percentage of Utahns believe the state should be aggressively planning for the growth the state will see in 10 to 40 years, a recent Dan Jones & Associates poll finds.

The survey, on a scale of 1-to-5, with 1 and 2 being not important at all, and 4 and 5 being very important (with 3 being neutral), sought to measure Utahns’ views on a variety of issues.

On planning for growth, the survey finds:

  • 73 percent said such planning is “very important.”
  • Only 6 percent said it was not important.
  • With 21 percent being neutral on the subject, not unimportant, but not that important at all.
