Wasatch Front Regional Council

The Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC) is an Association of Governments organized under the Interlocal Cooperation Act of Utah State Law, to discuss and study community challenges of mutual interest and concern. It also serves as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Salt Lake City-West Valley City and Ogden-Layton urbanized areas. The Council consists of 21 voting members, from Box Elder, Davis, Morgan, Salt Lake, Tooele, and Weber counties; the Utah Department of Transportation; and the Utah Transit Authority (UTA); as well as up to 7 non-voting members for the purpose of adding uniquely qualified individuals as additional resources.

The Regional Council's principal purpose is to act as the area metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Wasatch Front urban region which includes the Ogden-Layton and Salt Lake-West Valley urbanized areas.  These urbanized areas include Davis, Weber, Salt Lake Counties and a part of Box Elder County.  As the area MPO, the Regional Council is responsible for the preparation of the long range Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), currently extending through 2040, and a short range (six year) Transportation Improvement Program of highway, transit and other transportation projects in the region.  These two plans, the TIP and the RTP, are the governing documents for all major highway and transit capacity expansion projects in this region.  In turn, these two plans are designed to implement the Wasatch Choice for 2040 Vision for growth which acts as a template to guide major transportation and other development plans for the area.

The Regional Council also administers the Community Development Block Grant for Weber, Tooele and Morgan Counties.  Lastly, the Regional Council acts as a forum for discussion of regional issues of importance such as housing, community and economic development, and air quality.  Additional information on the purpose and function of the Regional Council can be found below.
