Salt Lake City – Utah Foundation released a report this week analyzing Utah’s future infrastructure needs resulting from the state’s projected population changes through 2050.
The report examines three important processes required for growth to continue including community development, expansion of transportation options and distribution of energy. This report is the second in a series that examines the long-range impacts of Utah’s expected population growth.
Highlights of the report include:
“In the past, our population growth has led to a fair amount of urban sprawl. Continued trends toward sprawl will increase transportation burdens, environmental impacts and wildfire risks,” said Mallory Bateman, Utah Foundation’s research analyst.
“Utah’s growing infrastructure needs during the next several decades will pose a serious challenge for the state,” said Utah Foundation President Stephen Kroes. “Investing in our infrastructure today will benefit Utah’s quality of life in the future. We look forward to examining more key issues surrounding Utah’s expected population growth in upcoming reports this year.”
