Envision Utah has been contracted to carry out "public engagement" for the Utah Inland Port. The initial public open houses listed below are the first two scheduled.
Tuesday, February 19th | 6-8 p.m.
State Fairgrounds – Zions Building
155 N 1000 W
Salt Lake City, UT 84116
Thursday, February 28th | 6-8 p.m.
Franklin Elementary School
1115 W 300 S
Salt Lake City, UT 84104
Please note that Envision Utah is being paid $100,000 for this work labelled "public engagement", but which is likely to be a PR initiative designed to sell the public on the Port.
There is also a survey that one can take. Go to https://www.utahinlandport.org/public-meetings.
Be aware that this survey is part of Envision Utah's efforts to sway the public. As Terry Marasco of Moms for Clean Air says:
1. It presents it as a done deal. You may want to comment that that is a questionable assumption
2. It mentions nothing of the rushed and non-transparent way it (the Inland Port) was rushed thru the 2018 legislature (last 45 minutes for the legislature to read the bill!), and what do you think about that..
3. It mentions nothing about the fact that the state took away a huge chunk of salt lake city/county and put it in state hands
4. It says nothing about the fact that perhaps $500M of school tax revenues will be removed from the SL school district
Hope to see you there.
