The resolution to relocate the Utah State Prison has been signed.
Utah State Prison from Draper to Salt Lake City
In August of 2015, Governor Gary Herbert signed a resolution to move the Utah State Prison from Draper to Salt Lake City. This is a good thing! As the 690 acres in Draper could yield a $20 billion return, and bring as many as 40,000 jobs according to Sen Scott Jenkins. Some people say that the returns predicted are unlikely and that residents might be stuck paying for new development with increased taxes.
