WFRC is Moving its Office!

It's happening! The Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC) is moving its office to a new location in March of 2019! WFRC's office will be more central, easily accessible, and served by multiple modes of transportation. The new office is located at the north end of The Gateway, adjacent to the Olympic Plaza, and on the second floor.

The office may be easily accessed via I-15, FrontRunner (North Temple Station), TRAX Green Line (North Temple Bridge/Guadalupe Station) or bus (visit rideuta.com for maps and schedules). Bicycle storage and validated parking will also be available.

New Office Address
41 North Rio Grande Street, Suite 103
Salt Lake City, Utah 84101
URBAN FORM
View a Map of Every Building on the Wasatch Front

Mapping the shape, size, and location of buildings is a novel and insightful way to look at urban and rural landscape patterns. Bing maps recently published a free, downloadable nationwide building footprint map dataset that was created using aerial photography, lidar, and machine learning. WFRC combined the building footprints together with the highways, airports, transit lines, and mountainous terrain to create a large-format wall map of the Wasatch Front region's built infrastructure. Users are able to view the entire region or zoom in to view a specific community. The building footprint data can also be viewed in a browser using this interactive map from The New York Times.
MOUNTAIN VIEW CORRIDOR
View the Pathway to Future Phases

As part of the Utah Department of Transportation's (UDOT) commitment to keep stakeholders informed of transportation improvements in their communities, the Mountain View Corridor (MVC) team created a short video to provide information on the overall project as well as the phased construction approach being used to build the corridor. 

This phased approach is part of the overall MVC plan to address short-term regional transportation needs while providing a long-term solution for the future.
