Join us Wednesday, January 29th for lunch and a presentation from special guest Don Whyte, Vice President of Planning at Deseret Ranch and past Chair of ULI Utah.

Deseret Ranch Farmland reserve, an investment affiliate of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints, owns a 300,000-acre cattle ranch in Central Florida.  Don has led Deseret Ranch's Envision effort, resulting in approval of a Sector Plan on 133,000 acres of the ranch's land in Osceola County.  Don will review why and how the ranch plans on an unusually large scale and exceptionally long time frame to preserve property values while addressing regional issues associated with rapid growth.

Don Whyte joined Deseret Ranch in 2014 to oversee long-range planning on this beautiful, well-located property. A state-approved Sector Plan for 133,000 acres of the ranch will allow agricultural use to continue on the most productive land and facilitate development on land well-suited to that purpose over a time horizon looking out to 2080.
Don is well known to many in Salt Lake City from his years as president of Kennecott Land when Kennecott was considering what to do with the balance of their 100,000-acre holding on the west side of the Salt Lake Valley, and Daybreak was the result. Don was chair of the ULI Utah District Council while in Utah and has been a member of ULI for over 40 years. Previously he chaired the Tampa Bay District Council when he was the Southeast regional president of Newland Communities, overseeing mixed-use developments in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas. Don is a Professional Engineer and a graduate of the University of Calgary where he received a BS in Civil Engineering. He became a U.S. citizen on April 4, 2001. Utah will always have a special place in his heart, from living here, working here, reporting to a home office here, recreating in the Wasatch and making so many friends along the way.
