Transportation & Land Use Connection

Transportation and Land Use Connection (formerly known as the Local Planning Resource Program) is a partnership between Salt Lake County and Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC).  It provides local communities with technical assistance such as staff time, consulting, and training.  The program encourages communities to integrate their land use and regional transportation plans by proactively addressing anticipated growth through the use of the  Wasatch Choice for 2050 Vision.

The program seeks to help local governments develop in a way that works best for them, supporting their efforts to create livable and vibrant communities. This locally-driven approach allows the private sector to flourish in communities while reducing the public resources necessary to accommodate future growth.
