Blueprint Jordan River: A Lake to Lake Vision



River Activists: Take an on-line survey and voice your opinion about how the
Jordan River should be managed and restored for the future!



Deadline: Saturday, May 31st



Background:



Salt Lake County has recognized great potential in the Jordan River as a
resource to be celebrated and wisely managed. As such, it has hired
Envision Utah to work collaboratively with three counties and numerous
municipalities through which the Jordan River flows. In an effort named
Blueprint Jordan River, the partners aim to make the river corridor a
central amenity of our region, an area that draws residents and visitors to
accessible outdoor recreation, natural beauty, wildlife, and interesting
places to work, shop, and live.



The goals for Blueprint Jordan River are many, but the first step is to
update the 1971 Jordan River Parkway master plan by creating a vision of the
ideal corridor to inform implementation efforts. For a complete outline of
the County's project goals, please visit:

In order to establish that vision, Envision Utah held a number of public
workshops in early May. At the same time, they have published an on-line
survey to give those unable to attend the workshops an opportunity to share
their vision for the Jordan River.



To Share Your Vision:



It is important to express your opinion about how the Jordan River should be
managed in the future! Restoration does not mean the same thing to all
people. The choices are many, so let the County know what you think.



Visit <http://www.blueprint.slco.org/> http://www.blueprint.slco.org/ and
complete the on-line survey available there.
