Group asking Utahns what their priorities are for the next several decades

By 2050 Utah’s population is expected to nearly double and the goal of Envision Utah is to get 50,000 Utahns to respond to a survey called “Your Utah Your Future” where residents of the state are asked about their priorities on 11 differrent topics: air quality, education, water, disaster resilience, energy, housing, jobs and the economy, public lands, recreation, and transportation.

On <a href=”http://610kvnu.com/assets/podcaster/324/2015_04_29_324_32999_2867.mp3″ target=”_blank”>KVNU’s For the People program Tuesday</a>, Robert Grow, president and CEO of Envision Utah, said the topics were decided by a large group of stakeholders and the survey has been more than a year in the making.

<span>”People go through those 11 topics and favorite which of the choices they like,” Grow said. “Then they’ll look at packages, five packages of those 11 together, which are a virtual future of all of those packaged in one future or another future depending on what decisions we make.”</span>

Grow said so far approximately 20,000 people have responded to the survey and he encouraged residents of Cache valley to get involved by going to <a href=”http://www.envisionutah.net” target=”_blank”>Envisionutah.net</a>. He said so far only approximately 300 responses have come from Cache County.
