“…the sum of the factors that add up to a community’s quality of life” (Partners for Livable Communities)
Who we are
Conserve Southwest Utah’s Desert Livability Program is an umbrella for efforts that sustain and improve our region’s quality of life through initiatives that foster environmental conservation.
Our mission is to support all Southwest Utah communities in creating a comprehensive quality of life that fosters environmental conservation.
The foundation of a healthy environment requires us to recognize and act within Southwest Utah’s natural limits. A livable community includes safe, eco-friendly, and accessible transportation options and infrastructure, access to outdoor recreation opportunities, social and economic opportunity, and natural spaces. It further includes land use patterns that encourage social connections, preserve cultural resources and protect native ecologies while supporting equitable economic development.
