Utah Valley is one of the fastest-growing regions in the United States. Our population is expected to double in the next couple of decades. With the population explosion come considerable transportation issues. Utah’s infrastructure needs over the next 20 years exceed $60 billion to both maintain and provide infrastructure for growing areas.
The Utah Valley Chamber strives to be involved in critical discussions and contribute to solutions affecting the future of transportation in Utah County, including increased use of public transportation, funding of transportation projects, issues related to the Provo Airport and the future of the Point of the Mountain. The cities of Utah County have varying needs based on the tax base of each community. We support legislation that allows for individual communities to determine the use of their transportation funds according to their needs.
