Description Transcript (44 pages) of interview by Rob DeBirk with Roger Borgenicht, on May 13, 2008
Abstract Borgenicht earned his B.S. degree in Urban Planning and Anthropology at Columbia, and then went to Berkeley for graduate work in architecture. He worked in environmental concerns in San Francisco, California, for 14 years, moving to Salt Lake City, Utah in 1984. He went to work for Assist, one of the oldest community design centers in the country. He was involved in the planning of the I-15 expansion, including car pool lanes and light rail. Roger was very involved with a coalition of people concerned with the problems of the Legacy Highway. In the end, the settlement called for a Parkway with a continuous path along the whole length, only two lanes in each direction, no semi-trucks, 55 miles per hour speed limit and quiet pavement, all lessening the impact of the Parkway. Roger is currently involved in the fight over the proposed Mountain View Corridor. Part of the Utah Environmentalist Project. Interviewer: Rob DeBirk
