LAYTON, Utah (AP) -- Mayor Jerry Stevenson has been picked for chairman of Envision Utah, a nonprofit group that promotes planning for quality growth.

Stevenson, who leaves office at the end of the year, was described as a bridge-builder by Envision Utah community relations manager Kevin Fayles.

"As a mayor, I became well aware of the challenges of growth. Envision Utah provided me with innovative tools to involve my citizens and meet those challenges," Stevenson, who owns J & J Nursery in Layton, said in a prepared statement.

As Envision chairman, Stevenson will succeed Bruce Christensen, president of KSL television and radio.

Others who have held the post are Gov. Jon Huntsman, state Sen. Greg Bell, R-Fruit Heights, and former Geneva Steel President Robert J. Grow.
