Public Lands Initiative Forum - April 5

courtesy utahpli.com

Join the Project For Deeper Understanding and KPCW for a public forum on

The Public Lands Initiative: Is it Right for Us?

  • What is the Public Lands Initiative?
  • Will it protect Utah’s wilderness lands?
  • Will it promote economic development?
  • Who will win and who will lose?
  • Can the right balance be found?

 The purpose of this public forum is education through respectful listening and discussion.  It will be an opportunity to provide information and insights, as well as to correct misunderstandings.

According to the Utah Public Lands Initiative website, featuring the draft bill by U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah Dist. 1) and U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz  (R-Utah Dist. 3):

"The Public Lands Initiative (PLI) is a locally-driven effort to bring resolution and certainty to some of the most challenging land disputes in Utah. The initiative is rooted in the belief that conservation and economic development can coexist and make Utah a better place to live, work, and visit."
