Committees

Active Transportation Committee

The Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) need to consider all modes of transportation including roads, transit, and active transportation.  The Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC) has been expanding the bicycle and pedestrian portion of the RTP within recent years, putting more emphasis on bicycle and pedestrian needs.  As part of this effort, the WFRC has been coordinating with the Weber, Davis, and Salt Lake County bicycle and trails committees and is currently working with UDOT, UTA, and others to identify a regional bicycle network and pedestrian connections to transit stations.

Given the increasing interest in bicycle and pedestrian facilities, the Regional Growth Committee (RGC), in May 2012, established the Active Transportation Committee (ATC) to advise them on bicycle and pedestrian planning issues.  Initially the role of the ATC is to act as the stakeholder committee for the Utah's Collaborative Active Transportation Study (UCATS) and as a policy committee for the WFRC's Complete Streets efforts.  The WFRC staff also sees an advisory role for the ATC for Trans Com on programming issues for bicycle and pedestrian facilities.  With the new Transportation Alternatives (TA) Program, which provides federal funding for bicycle and pedestrian projects, this advisory role for Trans Com becomes even more important.
