SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Getting to one of Utah's ski resorts for a day on the slopes might someday be as easy as boarding a light-rail train.

That's just one idea emerging from a public survey conducted by the Envision Utah Wasatch Canyons Tomorrow project. Launched in May, the one-year project is aimed at creating a long-term master plan for the seven canyons of the Wasatch mountains.

In addition to enhancing public transit, the survey of more than 2,000 residents identified limiting private development and addressing overuse as other prominent issues of concern.

The survey found widely divergent opinions about how to address competing interests.

Envision Utah Planning Director Gabe Epperson says the information will be used to create planning scenarios that will be shared with the public.
