Mountain Accord
Central Wasatch Mountains, Utah

Client: Utah Transit Authority

The Mountain Accord is a three-county transportation, economic, and environmental planning project. The Parametrix team was tasked with providing a long-term planning solution for the Central Wasatch Mountains in the Salt Lake Region. The project area combines the state’s most urbanized area containing about 1.5 million residents and surrounding world class mountain tourism and recreation destinations. Parametrix led the two-phased project which included an initial planning study followed by a NEPA evaluation of specific actions that emerged from the study. The program addressed needs related to transportation including high capacity transit scenarios, watershed protection, economic development, recreation, and land use. The team evaluated a variety of potential scenarios that combine economic development, land use, and environmental/watershed protection strategies with major transit improvements to connect population, employment, and recreation destinations.
