Mountain Accord is a public process initiated to gather
input from residents and stakeholders regarding the
future of the central Wasatch Mountains and
surrounding communities. By using public input and
previous research as a framework, the project team and active participants will evaluate four major topic areas
and how they relate to each other in the region:
environment, recreation, transportation, and economy.
The process consists of two principle phases:

Phase One

Phase One of the Mountain Accord initiative will be implemented during the next twelve months. During this phase, the project team will study current and projected future conditions within the study area in Salt Lake, Summit, and Wasatch counties. This process will draw from public input, existing plans and studies, and collaboration among Mountain Accord's participating agencies and key stakeholders. Using this information the project team will

develop potential future scenarios for the central Wasatch Mountains and canyons that address transportation, environmental, economic, and recreation goals.

Phase One will culminate in the selection of a "pre- ferred scenario" and the proposal of specific actions to shape the future of the Central Wasatch region. The proposed actions carried forward into Phase Two will address transportation, environmental, economic, and recreational goals, and other potential land use changes.

Phase Two

During Phase Two, the Mountain Accord project team will work through appropriate agencies and entities to implement the proposed actions identified in Phase One.

Some of these actions will require federal funding or federal agency approvals and will be subject to formal review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). This may require that detailed analysis of the actions and their environmental impacts be recorded

in a document such as an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The NEPA process (or processes) in Phase Two may take two or more years to complete, depending on the nature of the proposed actions and their impacts.

Other proposed actions that do not require federal agency approvals or funding will move forward under the authority of appropriate state or local agencies during this phase.
