The University of Utah’s Community Forum provides an opportunity to campus neighbors and other interested community members to become informed about future campus construction and road projects and their potential impacts on the surrounding neighborhoods, and to have an open dialogue with those who are managing the projects. Discussion of additional issues and concerns is welcome. The meetings are open to everyone.

Each Community Forum will be followed several days later by a Traffic & Transportation Meeting where issues and concerns from the Forum will be addressed in more detail in an effort to resolve them.
