Population and Geography based on 2020 Census

This is not a good map either as it seeks to link more liberal and more ethnically diverse Salt Lake City, with remote sparsely populated and rural areas. Very diverse needs and challenges in these distinct area which deserve to have representation and a voice. I am not dealing with the same issues that ranchers and farmers are. Similarly, ranchers and farmers in remote areas are not having to walk through unhoused communities on their way to school or work. We need districts that fairly organize population by county and or urban or rural. That is the only fair way to do it. This is not a fair map that would adequately represent the diverse needs of diverse communities.
This is an interesting map. I prefer the UIRC maps overall, but this is better than everything else out there I've seen. Keeping SLC & PC in a single district is nice. Districts tend to follow where travel follows.
Just as a response to a couple comments: (1) All of Salt Lake City is in one district. I'm not seeing where that alleged split is. (2) Wasatch County is in D3 in this map. D2 Has Tooele and Summit counties, both of which border Salt Lake County and are all connected by I-80. (An obviously major road)
This is atrocious: an obvious attempt to crack Salt Lake and keep Stewart and Owens in power, both of whom flagrantly ignore their urban constituents. Utah is 90% urban.
Obvious gerrymander to split up SLC.
Maps should follow county lines as much as possible to be fair and equitable. Splitting Salt Lake County and then adding Tooele County and Wasatch County back into District 2 doesn't make a lot of sense. It would make the most sense to have most of Salt Lake County be its own district. Then combine the rest of Salt Lake County's population with one of the adjacent districts to meet the equal population requirement.
This is an updated map to my previous submission "Utah Congressional - Submission by Evan Willie". The logic here was to move all of Summit County to D2 in an effort to give a closer ratio between urban and rural in that district. (My previous map also unintentionally split East Basin, that is resolved by moving Summit County.) To compensate, Vineyard was moved from D4 to D3, and the lines between D2 & D4, and D3 & D4 in Midvale and Orem, respectively, have been adjusted. This map has no changes to D1 when compared to my previous submission. In response to comments on the previous map, there is a strong argument for putting some of Tooele with Western Utah County. An effort to minimize county splits, keeping all of Tooele County together is the reason why I didn't.
