Envision Utah

Envision Utah engages people to create and sustain communities that are beautiful, prosperous,  healthy and neighborly for current and future residents. In 1997, Envision Utah brought together community leaders and neighbors to talk about what they valued in their communities. By providing choices, including the tools to evaluate different scenarios, people could decide how they wanted their community to grow.  Ursula Kramer said in regards to Envision Utah, “In Utah, Governor Leavitt took that on and made it a success. Larry Miller co-chaired the initiative with the Governor.  It was very clear that the Governor himself said that we are going to do this and we are going to make this a success. It’s another great example of a really collaborative process.” Today, there are many communities, within and outside Utah, involved in Envision planning.

Envision Utah continues to enable communities to decide what they want their future to be.
