Past Event: Breakfast Briefing: A New Administration, a New Air Quality Strategy?

Date of event:



Can Utah Step Up its Game on Air Quality?

As we emerge from a summer when the relief from hazy skies was nowhere to be found — and with the winter inversion season looming — the question arises:

  • How will a rapidly growing Utah grapple with the air quality challenges ahead?
  • What new strategies will the Cox-Henderson administration bring to the table?
  • What should be our top priorities for reducing pollutants?
  • What concrete steps can we take today that will bring a real return in better air quality?
  • What are the obstacles?

On October 13, the Utah Foundation held an important Breakfast Briefing seeking answers to these questions and more.

Our panelists included:

  • Jill Flygare, Chief Operating Officer, Utah Inland Port Authority
  • Kim Frost, Executive Director, Utah Clean Air Partnership (UCAIR)
  • David Garbett, Executive Director, O2 Utah
  • Kim Shelley, Executive Director, Department of Environmental Quality

Thanks to our sponsor, the Garbett Family Foundation, this event was free to the public.
