The Central Wasatch Commission: The Central Wasatch Commission (CWC) is a governmental entity formed by interlocal agreement in June 2017. The mission of the CWC is to build upon previous efforts established by the Mountain Accord effort and implement provisions of Mountain Accord, which recognizes and incorporates interdependent transportation, land use, recreation, wilderness, watershed, and economic issues and opportunities in the Central Wasatch Mountains.

Mountain Accord (Accord) represents the culminating commitment of more than 20 organizations that, through a voluntary, multi-year, public, consensus-based planning process, agree to proceed with a suite of actions designed to ensure that future generations can enjoy all the activities in the Central Wasatch that are offered today, while preserving our watershed and natural environment. The intent of the Accord is to benefit current and future generations by establishing an integrated, comprehensive, landscape-scale framework for the future of the Central Wasatch Mountains that provides for the long-term protection of the region’s water, lands, environment, recreational opportunities, and economic prosperity. The signers of the Accord support a transportation system that serves these values. The Mountain Accord principles and agreement can be found attached.
