Building Cities and Neighborhoods
that People Love
Great walkable cities and neighborhoods are powerful economic and social forces that improve our quality of life, health, and communities. But how do we create the kind of diverse and vibrant places we want when the “rules of development” — zoning, financing, traffic — seem to always make things worse? The ICAA and UVU are teaming up to provide answers in a public workshop in Murray, UT.

As transportation director for Salt Lake City, he leads a team that is working to transform the City’s streets into attractive, human-scaled, multi-modal places.
