Survey: In addition to the public forums, we've recently released a survey to gather more public input. Please take the survey and share it with your friends, family, and everyone you know! Take the survey.

Background: The proposed Utah Inland Port is a logistics and distribution hub that would create a shipping expressway between West Coast ports and the Intermountain West, connecting Utah businesses to global markets. The port will benefit our local economy, providing quality jobs and increased prosperity for a rapidly growing population.

The proposed site for the Utah Inland Port, the Northwest Quadrant of Salt Lake County, is positioned at the intersection of two interstate freeways, major national railways, and an international airport—and that means a high demand for expanding warehouses, distribution, and manufacturing needs. This development is already happening, and the Utah Inland Port provides an opportunity to harness the growth to maximize its economic benefits to Utahns while maintaining a high quality of life throughout the area.

The Utah Inland Port is a landmark opportunity for Utah, but it's going to take collaboration and foresight from all of us to maximize the benefits and address the challenges the already-happening development could present. Please attend the public forums to give your input on how you think the port should be developed. With your help, we can work together to ensure that the port benefits our prosperity and quality of life—both now and in the future.
