Utah is growing. By the year 2050, the population will nearly double in size. This is nothing new. Utah has a history of growth, and a successful track record of planning for the future.
That ethic of stewardship to future generations is as critical as ever. Governor Herbert has launched the Your Utah Your Future initiative to ensure we address growth issues in a way that enhances what we value most about Utah and ensures the best quality of life for our children and grandchildren. We have partnered with Envision Utah to reach out to all Utahns in this process.
Now we need your help to make sure Utah not only retains but enhances its great quality of life today and .
I ask that you participate in the 2014 Your Utah Your Future project by visiting http://envisionutah.
org/?atid=36. You can begin by playing the Build Your 2050 Utah game where you’ll be able to make choices about Utah’s future and watch them come to life. Afterward, you’ll have a chance to invite those in your social networks to do the same. Your voice matters. Share how you think Utah should grow.
The goal is to have 50,000 participants join the process and share their voice so Utah can stay a great place to live for decades to come. As state employees, we have a responsibility to engage and lead by example. I encourage you to be a part of this process.
Justin Harding, Chief of Staff, Office of the Governor, State of Utah
