• Salomon at City Creek Center, 51 S. Main St., Suite 226, from noon to 1:30 p.m.;

• Whole Foods Market at Trolley Square, 544 S. 700 East, 1:30-3:30 p.m.; and

• Sports Den at Foothill Village, 1350 Foothill Drive, 3:30-5 p.m.

"Shoppers will have an opportunity to submit comments and chat with Mayor Becker about the goals of the Mountain Accord effort and the process behind it," said his spokesman, Art Raymond.

Becker is a leading figure in the effort, which involves nearly two dozen government entities, nonprofits and organizations that have an interest in the Wasatch Mountains. Members include Utah Transit Authority, local governments and state agencies, the Forest Service and other federal agencies, the ski industry, recreationists, conservationists and property owners.

Meetings were held Tuesday in Park City and Wednesday at Skyline High School to find out what people think should be considered in evaluating future transportation, recreation, environmental issues and economic factors in an area that encompasses Salt Lake City International Airport, Park City and the Cottonwood canyons.

Officials hope to develop a preferred alternative early next year, then have a federal agency study it in an environmental impact study. That process could take several years.
