The Governor's Office of Planning & Budget is committed to helping Utah grow in an intelligent and responsible manner by creating tools and managing programs that assist our communities avoid the costs and inefficiencies associated with the lack of planning and coordination.
The mission of the Planning Section is to:
- promote quality growth -
- plan for critical land conservation -
- improve planning practice -
-facilitate intergovernmental relations -
Providing technical assistance to local governments is one of the critical aspects of the mission of GOPB. Unfortunately, GOBP staff is limited in its ability to reach every community desiring assistance. To address this issue, GOPB occassionally brokers arrangements between local governments and planing students from Utah's universities.
Each project is unique. Issues such as scope, schedule, and budget will vary. However, in every case, GOPB staff members can serve in the capacity of a mentor.
