The Jordan River Commission is tasked with facilitating implementation of the Blueprint Jordan River, a regional vision and action plan for the Jordan River produced with the input of thousands of Wasatch Front residents and community leaders.
The Commission is a governmental entity, but operates much like a non-profit, and all projects and efforts undertaken by the Commission are funded by either grants or private donations. The Commission is a capacity-building organization, not an advocacy one. In this role, we work to increase and improve our member agencies’ ability to implement the projects identified in Blueprint Jordan River, to raise public awareness of the Jordan River corridor and the issues it faces, and to help promote coordination and communication among Jordan River stakeholders. The Commission has no regulatory or maintenance authority for the Jordan River corridor. Maintenance of the trail, water trail, and regulation of development within the river corridor are the responsibility of the cities and counties that border the river.
