Gov. Herbert to launch Envision Utah’s “Your Future Your Utah” statewide effort to help plan for 2050

What:
Gov. Gary R. Herbert will launch Envision Utah’s “Your Utah Your Future” campaign, the first statewide effort in the country to actively gather citizen feedback on eleven key areas affected by the anticipated growth of the state.  Visuals will include statewide growth models and Envision Utah’s “Build Your Utah 2050” interactive survey.

Who:
Gov. Gary R. Herbert
Robert Grow, President of Envision Utah
Sam Gordon, Utah’s “Football Girl”

When:
Tuesday, Oct. 7, 9:00 a.m.

Where:
Natural History Museum of Utah, Sky Gallery Space
Rio Tinto Center – University of Utah
301 Wakara Way
Salt Lake City UT 84108

Why:
Utah’s population will almost double by 2050, with a projected 2.5 million new residents. Most of them will be our children and grandchildren. The “Your Future Your Utah”  is a unique  opportunity for citizens to direct the growth of their state. Envision Utah’s efforts in the late 1990s laid the groundwork for the direction the Wasatch area has headed over the last fifteen years, and the “Your Utah Your Future” project will do the same for the entire state for the coming decades.
