March 2019 Event

13 March 2019

The March Luncheon included a panel of women that are deeply involved in helping to shape the Wasatch Front through large scale urban planning efforts. The panel members were from multiple agencies and private practice, giving us insight into the benefits of Transit Oriented Development (TOD).

The panel discussed potential pitfalls in the planning process, legislative efforts in the 2019 session that deal with urban planning and transit, local examples of successful TOD projects that utilize best practices of urban design, financing models for these TOD projects and insight into the future growth patterns of the Wasatch Front Area.

A special thanks to Zions Bank for sponsoring the event and to Holland and Hart for hosting us in their space.
