RECAP: September 11 Council Meeting

At Tuesday’s Meeting, the Council:
  • Held a moment of silence to honor the victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks.
  • Held its third fact finding session about the inland port. Presenters included stakeholders focused on sustainability, economic development and advocacy.

    Val Hale, Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, said the State has been approached by several companies that are excited about the concept of an inland port.

    “We’ve already had a number of companies express interest,” Hale said. “They’re hearing about it.”

    Scott Williams, Executive Director of Heal Utah said his organization recommends the City, County and State implement regulations governing air quality, energy consumption and waste production.

    “There needs to be a very robust environmental monitoring program for the port, including performance indicators and targets,” he said.

    The Council will hold a public hearing about the inland port on Tuesday, September 18. Watch highlights from the first Fact Finding Session here.

  • also discussed possible amendments to the City’s regulations for Accessory Dwelling Units.
