Taylorsville leaders have taken a huge step in further defining and implementing the city's 20/20 Vision. They have issued a formal request seeking Statements of Qualifications (SOQ) for professional services with the goal of master-planning and revitalizing commercial centers in the city. The SOQ request seeks consultants in land use planning, small area design and programming, retail development, transportation planning and market analysis. The goal is to formulate a clear, insightful, visual and engaging plan for overall commercial development in the city, as well as visual plans and fiscally viable options for each individual area. The map below shows those core commercial areas identified for study and planning. The project is a key part of the city's 20/20 Vision, which focuses on bringing new businesses and housing to the city as well as plans for prime development locations, transportation and land use. The full SOQ request can be viewed here.

FEBRUARY MEETING SCHEDULE
The process involving the proposed Midvalley Connector Bus Rapid Transit project in Taylorsville is moving forward. The Draft Environmental Study Report is complete; public comment on it was taken through the end of December. A public open house also was held.
The proposed project extends along Murray, Taylorsville and West Valley City. The proposal includes a bus rapid transit line that travels from Murray Central station, through Taylorsville with connection at Salt Lake Community College on Redwood Road, to West Valley Central station. It is approximately seven miles in length with 15 proposed stations. The project includes approximately 1.4 miles of center-running exclusive bus lane along 4700 South. With the conclusion of the public comment period, UTA will now process all comments received and prepare the Final Environmental Study Report, anticipated to begin in the spring.
