The 2019-2050 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) integrates land use and transportation planning in the most significant way since the Wasatch Choice for 2040 Vision was established by Wasatch Front communities over a decade ago. The latest RTP is data driven with performance measures based upon ten goals developed with partner agencies, as well as input from local communities. The performance measures incorporate federal guidance set forth by the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. The RTP is being developed directly in-line with the new locally developed land use vision, Wasatch Choice 2050 (WC2050). The WC2050 provides refined development center locations and center types to respond to our region’s growth needs and economic development plans.
The success of the 2019-2050 RTP and WC2050 is dependent on local communities voluntarily doing their part to make the vision a reality. With the help of cities, counties, community organizations, transportation partners, businesses, the public, and others, the Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC) aims to directly link land use and regional transportation in order to create a long-range plan implemented by local solutions with regional significance.
