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.
