Community Forum on the Inland Port Feb. 2

16 January 2019 Published in News & Events

Join us for a FREE community meeting.

February 2 9 AM - 1:30 PM The Zion Building at the Utah State Fair Park (155 North 1000 West), Salt Lake City

You're invited to a free community forum that will examine the ecological and community impacts of the proposed Utah inland port. The inland port is proposed to be a large scale truck, train and plane frieght transfer facility on 16,000 acres of land within SLC (mostly), Magna and WVC. We'll discuss the risks of increased diesel truck and train traffic, the threats to air quality, the potential for water, light and noise pollution and loss of wildlife habitat. Come learn the details, hear from national experts on how to stop pollution caused by ports, and be involved in shaping the future of this project and our community!

Why We Care

  • We should bill the lake for what it is—a place of grandeur and solitude, which nourishes our thoughts and heightens our sensitivity to nature. Seen in that light, the brine flies become a fascinating curiosity more than an annoyance. The Great Salt Lake offers a wilderness experience, not a beach party, and no amount of promotion and development will change that.
