Looking Forward: The Rural Landscape in 2032 »

2022 Spring Conference, March 25, 2022 11:10 am

To be “rural” means different things to different people. Likewise, to be a “planner” means a lot of different things to different people. One common identifier is that planners look ahead. The purpose of this session is to gather planners that work with rural issues (that’s you) for an interactive discussion (with you) on what rural Utah will look like in the next 10 years, and what we can do now to maximize its positive potential. Rural Community Consultants will moderate the session, and it will only be as inspirational, informative, and as irreverent as you make it. There might be a t-shirt cannon.
