Utah has unmatched beauty and abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation. Unfortunately, we’ve all seen careless development block access to recreational areas, harm wildlife, and damage watersheds that supply our drinking water.
Continuing growth will increasingly threaten critical lands, such as hillsides, ridgelines, streams, and sensitive habitat. What outdoor opportunities will be available to the next generation?
Utahns told us they want parks in their communities and easy access to natural areas where they can play and relax.
Envision Utah is responding by promoting market-driven development patterns and voluntary strategies to reduce pressure on critical lands. With forethought, we can accommodate growth, build world-class cities, and preserve the stunning beauty of our state.
