Mountain Accord Program
The Mountain Accord Program (formerly known as the Wasatch Summit Program) is a public process that seeks to make integrated and critical decisions regarding the future of the Central Wasatch Mountains of Utah. The program will evaluate and address issues associated with transportation, environmental protection, watershed protection, economic opportunities, recreation, and land use within the Central Wasatch Mountains and adjoining valleys using a comprehensive and collaborative approach.
A critical first step in this multi-phase program is initiating an early scoping process that seeks input from and provides information to the public, agencies, and other stakeholders. This input will be used to refine program goals, identify issues to consider, and identify potential alternatives to evaluate in a scenario planning process. The desired outcome of the scenario planning process is an agreed-upon set of proposed actions to be carried forward to the next phase of planning and implementation.

- Public scoping meeting: Tuesday, February 4, 2014, from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm at Park City High cafeteria, 1750 Kearns Blvd, Park City, UT
