USU students create solutions for Bear Lake area's design problems

More than 50 posters covered an entire wall inside the Garden City Office Building on Wednesday night ready for government officials to view possible solutions to local problems.

Complete with text, full-color artistic renderings and charts, each poster showed ideas of how to solve some of the Bear Lake region’s most urgent design problems.

A group of students from Utah State University’s landscape architecture and environmental planning, or LAEP, department shared these solutions with the Bear Lake Regional Commission, a group of city and county officials created several years ago tasked with finding solutions to the Bear Lake Valley’s future growth and development.

The team has worked with the commission since the beginning of the school year on designs for several cities in the region, including Garden City, St. Charles, Laketown, Paris, Bloomington, Pickleville, Fish Haven and Montpelier. Daily Herald
