DEA - Quality Growth Efficiency Tools (QGET)

Mountainline

 

Quality growth planning in Utah began with the Growth Summit in 1995, a conference sponsored by legislative leadership and the governor intended to result in legislative solutions to the growth challenges facing the state. Over 60 proposals suggesting ways to manage the state's growth were submitted. The Summit resulted in a 10-year transportation improvement plan for the state.

  • In 1996, the Governor created the Utah Critical Lands Committee. This Committee supported numerous open space projects and developed educational materials describing the tools and techniques for open space conservation.

  • In 1997, the state partnered with Envision Utah, a public/private community partnership dedicated to studying the effects of long term growth, creating a publicly supported vision for the future, and advocating the necessary strategies necessary to achieve this vision. Governor Leavitt is the Honorary Co-Chair of Envision Utah. The Quality Growth Efficiency Tools (QGET) Technical Committee was formed.

  • The Utah Quality Growth Commission was created by the Utah Quality Growth Act of 1999 to address the challenges and opportunities growth brings to Utah.

  • The Quality Growth Efficiency Tools (QGET) Technical Committee seeks to improve the quality of information available to plan for Utah's future.

  • The QGET Technical Committee consists of technical representatives from state and local government, as well as the private sector. These representatives analyze growth issues related to demographics, economics, transportation, air quality, land use, water availability, and infrastructure costs. The Governor's Office of Planning and Budget coordinates QGET's work.

  • QGET has partnered with Envision Utah to provide the technical support necessary to analyze a baseline future, other alternatives, and, now, the Quality Growth Strategy. Envision Utah is a public/private community partnership dedicated to studying the effects of longterm growth in the 10-county Greater Wasatch Area. The partnership was formed in 1997 and the membership includes over 100 partners from the business, academic, conservation, local and state government, and religious communities.

  • Envision Utah's purpose is to create and be an advocate for a publicly supported growth strategy that will preserve Utah's high quality of life, natural environment, and economic vitality. During the past three years, Envision Utah has directed many activities, including an in depth values study, baseline analysis, over 100 public workshops, scenario development and analysis, a million dollar public awareness campaign, and the development and analysis of a quality growth strategy. Envision Utah has its own staff and operates mostly with private funds and no direct state financing, but much of its technical work has been prepared by the QGET Technical Committee.

  • QGET's work is not limited to the immediate, short-term requirements of the Envision Utah visioning process. QGET is fundamentally a statewide effort devoted to meaningful, longterm improvements in the state's ability to make informed decisions about the future.
