Phase Two Scenario Survey Release

The Phase Two Scenario Survey has been released and can be taken at PointOfTheMountainSurvey.org. The survey allows residents to weigh in on the best elements of five possible scenarios for how the region will develop, spanning topics from air quality and recreation to job growth and the economy.

We will be presenting the information contained in this survey at the public workshops later this week:

  • November 29th from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at Thanksgiving Point's Ashton Gardens Visitors Center, 3900 North Garden Drive, Lehi, UT 84043
  • November 30th from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium, 12033 Lone Peak Parkway, Draper, UT 84020

After they are held, the materials from the public workshops will be posted on PointOfTheMountainFuture.org for those unable to attend.

All input from the in-person workshops and online survey will be compiled by the project team and will be used to create a preferred scenario. The Point of the Mountain Development Commission will present the preferred scenario during the 2018 Legislative Session.

Join Us for the Phase Two Visioning Workshops!

The Point of the Mountain Development Commission invites you to attend a town hall/visioning workshop to help create a vision for the future of the Point of the Mountain area. This area has over 20,000 acres of undeveloped property in Salt Lake and Utah Counties. This includes the prison site and much more land beyond it.

At the meeting you’ll have the chance to weigh in on the best elements of five possible scenarios for how the region will develop.

We will be hosting two public visioning workshops, please join us for whichever is most convenient for you:

  • November 29th from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at Thanksgiving Point's Ashton Gardens Visitors Center, 3900 North Garden Drive, Lehi, UT 84043
  • November 30th from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium, 12033 Lone Peak Parkway, Draper, UT 84020

Phase Two Baseline Scenario Brochure Release

The Baseline Scenario for the Point of the Mountain has been released following the Point of the Mountain Development Commission meeting this morning!

The Point of the Mountain Development Commission is exploring different options to accommodate the growth and the implications of those choices. It is impossible to predict the future with complete accuracy, but this baseline scenario anticipates how the area could turn out in 2050 if we continue on our current path.

We are now beginning the process of modeling different scenarios for public workshops later this year, and will keep this website updated with the latest news.

Utahns have high expectations and ambitious hopes for the Point of the Mountain area. From the rapidly growing cities to the booming tech sector to the beautiful natural surroundings, Utahns want the Point of the Mountain to be prosperous and thriving, accessible and enjoyable, and healthy and beautiful. The Point of the Mountain can lead the way in establishing a 21st Century “innovation economy,” providing a convenient and enjoyable lifestyle, and demonstrating sustainable approaches to using natural resources and improving air quality.

We need your continued help because of your background, knowledge, and the influence you have in the community. The meeting attendees will include landowners and representatives from government, business, nonprofit organizations, academia, and other sectors of the community. At the meeting, we will report on phase 1, launch phase 2, and work in small groups to decide what should be included in the phase 2 scenarios.

You can find more information and the phase 1 report here: https://pointofthemountainfuture.org/.

Public Workshop Update and New Survey

February may be the shortest month of the year, but that doesn't mean the Point of the Mountain visioning process is slowing down. The first two Point of the Mountain Public Workshops were held on February 15th and 16th and were a huge success! Thank you so much to everyone who came out and shared their ideas and concerns.

If you weren't able to make it out to one of the public workshops, we've developed a new survey based on the workshop contents. Taking this survey will ensure that your voice is heard as we develop a range of scenarios for the Point of the Mountain's future, using input from the public, from stakeholders, and from experts in fields including transportation, environmental planning, infrastructure, community design, and more.
