Growth patterns in the Salt Lake Valley have been a subject of much debate for many years, and likely will continue to be a hot topic as population growth continues. Estimates project that our valley will grow in population by 1 million people over the next 3 decades. How will the valley learn and apply the lessons learned from other cities where sprawl has negatively impacted quality of life and local economies? How will our valley address the long term air quality implications of adding thousands of additional cars to the road?
The Salt Lake Tribune is doing a three part story online next week on the lessons that can be learned from the planning principals being implemented at Daybreak and wants to get your thoughts.
The newspaper is interested in people’s views on various aspects of Daybreak and its neighborhoods, specifically, its walkability, housing styles, the layout of neighborhoods, green spaces, access to TRAX as well as the energy efficiency of Daybreak homes. The Tribune is also looking at how Daybreak fits into Kennecott’s overall mission and role as a Utah company.

To better include your views, the newspaper is taking a different approach to how it publishes the stories. The Tribune will run a series of short daily takes about Daybreak on its Web site, at http://www.sltrib.com, starting Monday, March 3 and running thru Wednesday, March 5th. There will be a link on the homepage.
Through links on those stories, interested readers– especially Daybreak residents– can offer their comments, insights and experiences via email in advance at utairquality@sltrib.com for possible inclusion with the articles or through the newspaper’s Facebook page, at www.facebook.com/saltlaketribune once the articles are posted.
To keep the conversation upbeat, participants will be encouraged to include their name and city.
Then, the Tribune will add the input it receives to a package of stories schedule to be published in its print edition, on Sunday, March 9th.
