The Accord The Accord On Aug. 3, 2014, a historic agreement, 30 years in the making was signed. In signing the Accord, we created a new context to address longstanding contentious issues that have muddled decision-making for decades.

It’s visions, directives and principles will guide future decision-making in the Central Wasatch and help build a legacy of good stewardship for the future.
