Stakeholders Advisory Council

The Stakeholders Advisory Council is comprised of community members, representing the diverse interests in the Central Wasatch Mountains, including community organizations, environmental groups, ski resorts, residents and property owners, and the general public. Stakeholders 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. 

The Stakeholders Council, mandated by the CWC Interlocal Agreement, acts in an advisory capacity to the CWC board, and currently includes 33 members and five committees:

  • Millcreek Canyon Committee, which meets publicly on the 3rd Monday of each month at 1:30 p.m., discusses matters pertinent to Mill Creek Canyon.
  • Environment Systems Committee, which meets publicly on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 3:00 p.m., discusses matters regarding environmental protection throughout the Central Wasatch Range.
  • Recreation Systems Committee, which meets publicly on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 2:00 p.m., discusses recreation improvements throughout the Central Wasatch Range.
  • Transportation Systems Committee, which meets publicly on the 2nd Monday of each month at 3:30 p.m., discusses canyon transportation issues and improvements.
  • Economy Systems Committee, which meets publicly on the second Thursday of each month at 3:30 p.m., discusses the economic matters pertinent to the canyons in the Central Wasatch.

The Stakeholders Council meets as a whole on the third Wednesday of every other month, 3:30 – 5:30 p.m.
