You're invited—Envision Utah's 2018 Spring Breakfast
Mark your calendars! This year's Spring Breakfast will feature a panel discussion on the impact of a global trade center/inland port near the Salt Lake International Airport.

Wednesday, May 23
7:30 - 9:00 a.m.
The Grand America Hotel
Please join the discussion on this critical issue. We'll talk about what makes a global trade center successful, the potential for economic growth through distribution and manufacturing, the impact on regional growth and traffic patterns, and how to ensure we build in a sustainable and environmentally responsible way.
City Blocks at the Leonardo Museum
What do playing with Legos and building a sustainable future have to do with each other? Thanks to the Leonardo Museum's new City Blocks exhibit, more than you would think.

The exhibit uses Legos to get you thinking like a city planner: what actually goes into making a beautiful, livable, and sustainable city? Visitors get to enjoy Lego models of historic and interesting buildings in Salt Lake City and have a chance to build their own city out of Legos.

Data from our Your Utah, Your Future studies line the walls of the exhibit and highlight the reality of where our state is headed, showing what things look like now, and what they could like in 30 years in areas like transportation, recreation, air quality, tourism, and more.

Ari Bruening, Envision Utah COO, spoke at the opening of the exhibit and emphasized the importance of building the right formula for the future, not just for ourselves, but our children and grandchildren.

The City Blocks exhibit is going on now, be sure to check it out!

Save the date: Golden Spoke Rides & Event
On June 2, 2018, bike riders will celebrate the completion of over 100 miles of safe, separated, and connected multi-use trails along the Jordan River, linking Ogden to Provo.

Over 10 years ago, Envision Utah led the Blueprint Jordan River effort to bring together 3 counties and 17 different municipalities to agree on a single blueprint for the entire Jordan River. Through Envision Utah's support, the Jordan River Commission was formed and has worked to make the vision a reality, resulting in the Jordan River Parkway we'll be celebrating on June 2.

Riders coming from Ogden and Provo will converge at the new Jordan River Bridge near North Temple in Salt Lake City for a final celebration. Additionally, there will be community events hosted along the way.

7:00 a.m.—Group ride start time
1:00 p.m.—Celebration at the Jordan River Bridge at North Temple

We'll keep you updated with any new details. See you on the trail!
