Salt Lake County and the Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC) recently awarded $1 million to fund real estate and economic development in the region.
Because of a real estate boom and expansive job growth, Salt Lake County has seen an influx of new residents. The WFRC and Salt Lake County grant money will go toward the Transportation and Land Use Connection program, which will provide funding for local neighborhoods so that they can prepare for rapid growth.
“Salt Lake County seeks to create communities where opportunity is available to all of our residents and where government is responsive to the needs and challenges of the people who live here,” Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams said in a Utah Business interview. “The resources available through the Transportation and Land Use Connection helps us achieve the Future We Choose by providing communities with the tools they need to make local decisions that have a positive impact on the region and our shared future.”
The TLC program will focus on zoning, housing, transportation, open space, and other features that will benefit Salt Lake County communities.
