(Salt Lake City-AP) -- It's been two decades since management plans for the Wasatch Canyons have been updated. Now a committee is planning to refresh them.
The panel will figure out how to accommodate increases in foot and motor traffic while protecting Salt Lake Valley's water supply. The committee made up of public works and public safety officials will also update wildfire-suppression and evacuation plans and discuss realigning roadways for avalanche or flood protection.
The Wasatch Canyons Goals and Recommendations guidelines will be updated this summer for the first time since 1983. Officials say it needs to be updated to accommodate the increasing number of visitors, homeowners, and motorized traffic in the area.
