The Wasatch Front Economic Development District has prepared an in-depth development strategy. The WFEDD is an organization created to support economic development plans, promote long-term economic competitiveness, and attract federal monies to implement local plans.
The WFEDD Board of Directors is made up of eleven members. Each of the five County Councils of
Governments in the Wasatch Front Region appointed one member, known as the COG Appointed
Director. These five Directors appointed the six remaining Directors, known as the Non-COG
Appointed Directors, ensuring that the Board of Directors reflects the geographic diversity of the
region. At least 51% of the WFEDD Board of Directors represents the government. The WFEDD
Strategy Committee has strong representation from key public and private sector organizations from
throughout the region. The WFEDD Board of Director’s also serves as Strategy Committee members.
