Gatherings to help local governments handle growth

SHARE Envision Utah will hold 11 ‘toolbox’ workshops

Envision Utah will hold several workshops in November designed to share urban planning tools that will assist local governments in implementing quality growth strategies.

The group has developed a "toolbox," constructed to assist a variety of communities in the areas of protecting sensitive lands, meeting housing needs, developing walkable communities, infill and redevelopment and water conservation strategies.

Envision Utah will host 11 implementation workshops for elected officials, planning commissions, professional planners and other stake holders to review strategies in the toolbox. The toolbox also gives a broad description of model development codes, design standards, and strategies for accomplishing quality growth objectives,
