Research shows Utah’s population expected to double over the next 50 years. Whether we like it or not, this growth is inevitable. How we handle this growth will have a direct impact on our future economic success and overall quality of life.
That’s why the Salt Lake Chamber is focusing our efforts in 2019 on smart growth and smart planning. Our 2019 Legislative Priorities will be centered on our state’s business climate, workforce, housing affordability, environment, health care and transportation, and how these issues are all interconnected and growth related.
Joining us in this episode of Building Utah is Theresa Foxley, President and CEO of EDCUtah and co-chair of the Utah Transportation Coalition, to talk a little bit about smart growth for our state’s transportation infrastructure.
