About the Program

The Transportation and Land Use Connection (TLC) program is a partnership between the Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC), Salt Lake County, Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), and Utah Transit Authority (UTA).

The TLC program provides technical assistance to local communities to help them achieve their goals and plan for growth. The program helps communities implement changes to the built environment that reduce traffic on roads and enable more people to easily walk, bike, and use transit. This approach is consistent with the Wasatch Choice Vision and helps residents living throughout the region enjoy a high quality of life through enhanced mobility, better air quality, and improved economic opportunities.

Technical Assistance for Station Area Plans and Ordinances

As a result of the 2022 state Legislative session, HB462 (titled Housing Affordability Amendments) passed and was signed into law requiring a city that has a fixed-guideway public transit station (rail or BRT), the city must develop a Station Area Plan for that station and update its general plan and zoning to implement the Station Area Plan. The Wasatch Front Regional Council can provide technical assistance to help communities implement Station Area Plans in partnership with the Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity, the Utah Transit Authority, and the Mountainlands Association of Governments.
