A question-and-answer session on the Mountain Accord's proposed "blueprint" for the future of the central Wasatch Mountains will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Cottonwood High School, 5715 S. 1300 East, in Murray.

Six people involved in the development of the blueprint will be available to discuss the wide-ranging proposal about the interaction of the mountain range and the population centers growing up on both sides of it. Released last week, the proposal lays out transportation plans for the canyons, land exchanges that could aid ski-resort development while also protecting other backcountry lands, and development of a regional trail network

Answering questions will be:



Laynee Jones • Independent consultant who coordinated the Mountain Accord project for the past year;

Ralph Becker • Salt Lake City Mayor;

Andy Beerman • Park City councilman;

Dave Whittekiend• Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest supervisor ;

Carl Fisher • Save Our Canyons Executive Director;

Nathan Rafferty • Ski Utah President.

Open houses are scheduled Feb. 24 in Park City and Feb. 25 at Skyline High School in Millcreek. The blueprint is available for review at mountainaccord.com.
