Comments sought on Wasatch Front transportation needs

SYRACUSE (Deseret News) — Not happy with your transportation options? This is the time to tell those who are planning for future transportation and transit needs.

The Wasatch Front Regional Council is working on the next iteration of its 30-year plan for how to get people from here to there.

And they need comments from the public and from city leaders about the issues facing their cities, like when Farmington Mayor Scott Harbertson pointed out the limited access to I-15 from western Farmington and Kaysville.

Or when West Valley City sent the council a letter detailing 11 needs.

By mid-2011, the council will adopt its regional transportation plan, which the Utah Department of Transportation and Utah Transit Authority are obligated to follow when pursuing projects to fund.

Composed of 18 local politicians representing cities from Salt Lake, Tooele, Morgan, Davis and Weber counties, the council is responsible for coordinating transportation planning from Salt Lake County to Weber County.

Already, the council is aware of needs on Riverdale Road, state Route 126, or Main Street, through northern Davis County and the future development of Falcon Hill Aerospace Research Park, which will be built on the west side of Hill Air Force Base.
