Growing the Economy

Grow Salt Lake County’s Economy

The state, over many years, has invested in key economic policies that have helped make our state competitive. I would like to bring the experience I learned at the State to the Salt Lake County Council. Over the next fifty years, Utah County’s population will become just as populous as that of Salt Lake County. As Utah County’s population increases, it will be even more important to prioritize economic development so that Salt Lake County will remain a competitive place to live and to work.

Action Items

  • Create and nurture opportunities in Salt Lake County that incubate and retain a healthy talent pool for employers
  • Continue to cultivate Salt Lake County as an attractive place to invest and do business by improving burdensome and outdated regulations
  • Elevate regional collaboration with cities, other counties, and the State of Utah in an effort to support an economic ecosystem where a growing population will thrive
