In an effort to support the development of long- and short-range plans and programs, such as the Wasatch Choice 2050 (WC2050) Vision, Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), and Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), as well as participate in regionally significant transportation-related projects and studies, the Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC) strategically communicates with relevant stakeholders. This communication takes place across a wide variety of platforms and includes management of the following.
- The WC2050 Consortium, in an effort to promote the Vision and ultimately improve the quality of life for residents along the Wasatch Front.
- In-person and on-line events and tools, such as open houses, webinars, interactive maps, and visualization tools, in an effort to proactively plan for the future of our region.
- Content for the website and all social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, in an effort to continue to build relationships with cities, counties, transportation partners, community-based organizations, and the private sector.
- E-mail newsletters, including distribution lists, and online surveys, in an effort to proactively notify stakeholders and interested parties of visions, plans, and programs, as well as upcoming events.
WFRC has developed the Public Involvement Policy (PIP) to be used in the development and adoption of the RTP, TIP, and Unified Planning Work Program, as well as other plans and programs. The PIP encourages residents of the Wasatch Front region to participate in the transportation planning and decision-making process.
The Limited English Proficiency (LEP) Plan outlines how to identify people who may need language assistance, the ways in which assistance may be provided, staff training that may be required, and how to notify LEP persons that assistance is available.
To sign up for WFRC’s monthly email newsletter or for additional information regarding public involvement, please contact Katie Gerard-Nelson.
WFRC seeks public review and comment on its Draft Public Participation Plan (PPP) and Draft LEP Plan, which, upon approval, will replace the current PIP and LEP Plan, respectively. The public comment period begins on March 18, 2019 and extends through May 3, 2019. Members of the public are asked to learn more and comment via e-mail to Katie Gerard-Nelson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
