The Central Wasatch Commission is Accepting Comments on the draft Central Wasatch Compact now through Thursday, February 24th at 5:00 p.m.


Following the November 2021 Retreat of the Board of Commissioners, the Central Wasatch Commission contracted with the Common Ground Institute for an independent assessment of the organization in order to achieve the following:


  1. Redefine and recertify Mountain Accord
  2. Recommit to Mountain Accord
  3. Review the current structure of the Central Wasatch Commission Board
  4. Review the current management structure of the Central Wasatch Commission.


The overall objective of the assessment has been to review and redefine the Mountain Accord Charter, which was signed six years ago, in 2015. Through one-on-one interviews with Commissioners, Stakeholders, and a survey released to the public, Common Ground Institute implemented edits to the original Mountain Accord Charter, resulting in the draft Central Wasatch Compact.


The Central Wasatch Commission is soliciting feedback on the draft Central Wasatch Compact, and has opened a public comment period today, February 15, 2022 through Thursday, February 24, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. You may provide comment the following ways: by emailing your comment to, by submitting a comment via comment form below, or by mailing a written comment.
