Launched four years ago as a joint partnership between Salt Lake County and WFRC, the Transportation and Land Use Connection (TLC) program’s main objective is to provide technical assistance such as staff time, consulting, and training to local communities for planning, implementation, and visioning efforts that proactively address anticipated growth.
The program encourages communities to integrate their land use and regional transportation plans through the use of the Wasatch Choice Vision key growth principles. The TLC program seeks to help local governments develop in a way that works best for them, supporting their efforts to create livable and vibrant communities.
The Utah Department of Transportation and the Utah Transit Authority also contribute resources to the program.
