Growing in Utah: The Quality Growth Act of 1999
AbstractBy the late 1990â€™s demographic changes and patterns of land development in Utah, had aroused wide public concern over how to keep growth compatible with quality of life. This essay identifies major public-policy issues at stake, involving conflicting worries, hopes, wants, and expectations. It describes the legislative struggle which produced the Quality Growth Act of 1999, including stances taken by different interest groups, and roles played by individual legislators â€“ in the House â€“ and by political party alignments. The Actâ€™s main features are outlined, including goals it incorporates, issues it addresses, the Quality Growth Commission it creates, and overall significance. The essay also notes some of the major challenges ahead.
