The Regional Growth Committee (RGC) serves as the policy advisory body to the Regional Council on long range transportation planning, land use and other growth related issues. The RGC is responsible for the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), corridor preservation, and developing regional growth planning strategies such as Wasatch Choice for 2040 in cooperation and coordination with local governments, Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), Utah Transit Authority (UTA), and other organizations and stakeholders.
Further, the Regional Growth Committee's role is to provide overall direction, guidance, and oversight to the Regional Council staff and subcommittees in carrying out the programs and activities associated with the Regional Transportation Plan and process, and facilitating the coordination of planning in the Region. This includes the planning coordination of concerns that are critical to the public and of regional significance, such as open space and trails, affordable housing, water resources, hazard mitigation; and for the resolution of land use and other growth-related conflicts. This also includes facilitating communication between local, state, and federal planning officials on various planning issues, educational opportunities for improving technical planning skills, and learning about new methodologies and "best practices" in planning.
