Utah for Responsible Growth is citizen group that supports well-balanced and well-planned growth in Utah. We recognize that growth will inevitably bring change to our communities, and we embrace the reality of change when it is done responsibly. We advocate for fairness to all parties impacted by growth - existing residents, future residents, local leaders, and the developers themselves. Development should be a collaborative effort that harmonizes the needs and visions of a community, with the desires of the builder.
Our goal is to give voice to residents who feel that the current “growth narrative” in Utah favors developer interests and state power over local control. Land use planning and zoning should remain in the sphere of municipal control, supported and influenced by citizen input. We believe residents know their communities best, and have a vested interest in how their communities are shaped and influenced by growth.
