Stakeholders Advisory Council

The Central Wasatch Commission Stakeholders Advisory Council serves as a citizens advisory council for the Central Wasatch Commission staff and Board. The Stakeholders Advisory Council is comprised of community members, representing many of the diverse interests in the Central Wasatch Mountains, including community organizations, environmental groups, ski resorts, residents and property owners, and the general public. The Stakeholders Advisory Council may gather information, conduct fact-finding, provide analysis, conduct feasibility studies, and otherwise collaborate with broader constituencies with interests in the Project Area in order to make suggestions, recommendations and proposals to the CWC Board and the Commission’s staff and consultants. All Council members will serve four-year terms. starting in January 2019, and ending on June 30, 2023; however, half of the Council members have been assigned a two-year term. There are no term limits for Council members.
