Mountain Accord signed
August 4, 2015
Parties involved in the Mountain Accord signed the agreement during a Monday ceremony.
The Mountain Accord is a group conducting a broad study of the future of the Wasatch Mountain region. It is focused on issues like transportation, recreation, the economy and the environment. It involves government entities, not-for-profit organizations and business interests. Summit County is also a Mountain Accord participant.
City Hall and the County Courthouse recently pledged additional funding in order to remain a member of the Mountain Accord.
The Mountain Accord is entering a second phase that will include researching the recommendations, taking input from the public and completing an important study of environmental impacts.
The discussions in Park City were heavily focused on the transportation elements of the Mountain Accord.
"Incentivizing transportation and transit solutions on the I-80 Corridor will also be examined," the Mountain Accord says in a statement announcing the signing of the agreement.
