Update the plan to reflect the evolving transportation needs of the region.
The Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC) coordinates closely with cities, counties, the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), and Utah Transit Authority (UTA) to understand the needs of our transportation partners and communities. Regional transportation planning is a dynamic process in which amendments to the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) ensure the plan appropriately reflects the evolving nature of the transportation system.
The following formal process adopted by the Council in place for amending the RTP.
- A request is made from a city, county, UDOT, UTA, or the Utah State Legislature.
- WFRC Staff reviews and classifies the requests as one of the following three levels.
- Level 1 Staff Modification: Minor revisions to RTP language, mapping, or project information. Can be amended by staff with no Council action but does require WFRC Executive Director approval.
- Level 2 Board Modification: Modifications to scope, alignment, or phasing of a non-regionally significant project. Requires Council action and review by city planners, elected officials, and WFRC committees. Requires a 30-day public comment period but no air quality conformity analysis.
- Level 3 Full Amendment for Regionally Significant Projects: Modifications to a regionally significant project as defined by the RTP and through discussions with community and transportation partners. Requires Council action and review by city planners, elected officials, and WFRC committees. Requires a 30-day public comment period and air quality conformity analysis.
