UTAH COULD LOSE OUT ON BILLIONS IN FEDERAL FUNDING FOR PASSENGER RAIL

In recent years, the Wasatch Front has enjoyed the addition of commuter rail, light rail, and a streetcar. However, options are still limited for those wishing to travel beyond the Wasatch Front without a car. For the past decade, I’ve been researching how Utah could expand passenger rail across our state and connect to cities in neighboring states and do so cost-effectively using existing freight rail infrastructure. Yes, it would be wonderful, if we built 200+ mph high-speed rail. However, high-speed rail is extremely expensive, and the timeline for getting it planned and built puts its implementation decades into the future. What I’m proposing could reasonably be implemented in five years, if we got our ducks in a row.

Social Equity Through Transit-Oriented Communities

Transit-Oriented Communities (TOC) zoning ordinances often incentivize affordable housing development near rail lines, bus stations and transit stops in exchange for expedited processing, density bonuses and parking reductions. In addition to encouraging forward-thinking development, these communities can provide a boost toward upward mobility for underserved populations.
