The Wasatch Canyons Tomorrow process

is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for the public to help guide the policies which will form the basis of a revision of the 1989 Salt Lake County Wasatch Canyons Master Plan for City Creek, Emigration, Red Butte, Parley’s, Millcreek, Big Cottonwood, and Little Cottonwood Canyons.  The Master Plan is the basis for the County’s land use planning policies and ordinances.

The Wasatch Canyons Tomorrow process seeks to engage the public in setting priorities and identifying long-term strategies to enhance the value of the canyons for current residents and future generations.  Among other things, the process will explore the impacts of increased canyon use and address issues such as land use and development, watershed protection and water quality, recreation, natural resource management, transportation, and public safety.This process is sponsored by the State of Utah, Salt Lake County, and Salt Lake City.  The U.S. Forest Service is a supportive partner, supplying technical expertise.


Envision Utah is facilitating the effort.

The results of Wasatch Canyons Tomorrow will inform, but not supersede existing plans in the study area, such as the Wasatch-Cache National Forest Plan or Salt Lake City’s Watershed Management Plan.  The public will participate in this process through workshops, open houses, and on-line surveys.

With the projected doubling of County’s population in the next 30 years, Wasatch Canyons Tomorrow will strive to ensure the long-term health of these treasured canyons.
