Jeff Edwards01The EDCUtah research team has been busy updating our industry profiles, which are core materials we use in our project development work.

Each profile update is a top-to-bottom rebuild of the content and format and involves a significant research effort. We just finished the Utah Aerospace Industry Profile. Next up is the Utah Life Sciences Industry Profile. We hope to have the entire library of profiles completed in the next few months for our own use and the interests of our members.

Also, Utahns have another opportunity to help shape the future of the region by participating in the Wasatch Choice 2050 Consortium and Active Transportation & Health Summit June 29 at the Little America Hotel. The Wasatch Choice vision provides a blueprint for how transportation, land use and economic development can be shaped to improve the quality of life for residents along the Wasatch Front. This year's Consortium is a refresh of the shared vision looking out to 2050 to reflect the dynamic changes in the region, the Your Utah Your Future statewide vision and local efforts like Salt Lake County's "The Future We Choose."

The event offers a day filled with interactive break-out sessions, engaging keynote speakers and mobile tours and has been combined with Utah's Active Transportation and Health Summit to highlight the importance of building vibrant communities that promote active living. Register here.
