3. In January, the City Council directed staff to prepare a letter to the Wasatch Front Regional Council to comment on that organization's update of its long-range transportation plan to the year 2030. The Regional Council will take comment until at least May. Council staff has attached a draft letter for City Council review.   Council Members wanted the letter to get to the point quicker.  Council Members wanted the letter to be specific about transportation aspects the Council agreed on and give general information other transportation aspects.  Councilmember Jergensen said he did not see the words “the following issues are priorities for Salt Lake City Council”  He said we need to articulate the priorities as quickly and clearly as possible.
