Wasatch Choice is Built on 4 Key Strategies
Four key strategies represent the overarching themes in the Wasatch Choice Regional Vision and help achieve the Regional Goals. The key strategies are as follows.
- Provide Transportation Choices: Help us have real options in how we choose to get around and increase the number of easily reached destinations.
- Support Housing Options: Support housing types and locations that we can both afford and work best for our lives.
- Preserve Open Space: Preserve sufficient and easily accessible open lands that provide us with recreational opportunities.
- Link Economic Development with Transportation and Housing Decisions: Create a synergy between these three key building blocks. Enable shorter and less expensive travel to afford us more time and money. Efficiently utilize infrastructure to save taxpayer dollars. Provide housing options and increase housing affordability. Improve the air we breathe by reducing auto emissions.
