Envision Utah Quality Communities Academy Event

Envision Utah’s Quality Communities Academy is tailored to those dedicated to the thoughtful development of our communities. The academy, now in its fifth iteration, is a valuable forum for planning commissioners, city council members, mayors, planners, designers, and developers committed to elevating the quality of life in our state.

This year’s Quality Communities Academy reviews resources designed to enhance community development in Utah:

  • Creating Communities Guide: Explore the “Creating Communities: A Guide to Walkable Centers,” which provides insights for seamless living, working, playing, and learning in Utah.
  • Land Use Strategies to Bring Housing Back within Reach: The housing affordability crisis in Utah has reached a critical point, with a staggering 76% of Utahns unable to afford a median-priced home. Join us for actionable solutions to address this pressing issue in your community.
  • Inclusivity in Planning: Utah’s top experts and a diverse focus group of citizens shaped the inclusivity guide. Discover the principles needed to foster diverse and welcoming communities throughout the state.
