Scenic Utah works to protect and enhance the scenic qualities of our communities, countrysides, and roadways.
We partner with geographically diverse groups who share the common goal of safeguarding the visual character of Utah,
and we promote policies that encourage community engagement, protect scenic beauty, and limit visual blight.
SCENIC UTAH is a state affiliate of Scenic America, the only US-based nonprofit dedicated to preserving and enhancing the visual character of America's communities and countryside. Scenic America supports the public sector in preserving and enhancing our scenic environment through billboard and sign control efforts, and supports programs and policies focused on limiting visual blight, protecting scenic public lands and byways, undergrounding utility wires, reforming the Highway
Beautification Act of 1965, and other efforts focused on scenic
conservation and aesthetic community design.
Friends, supporters and scenic champions from Utah and around the country gathered on Oct. 11th, 2018 at the Eccles Theatre in downtown SLC to celebrate Scenic Utah’s formal launch as the 50th state affiliate of Scenic America. The event also kicked off Scenic America’s annual day-long ‘Scenic Symposium’ (Oct. 12), which featured prominent local and nationally known presenters on topics including billboards and sign control, gateway communities and cities, dark sky protection, scenic byways, and public lands.
