No Prison in Salt Lake City

Proposed Prison Relocation in Salt Lake City

The Prison Relocation Commission has been working on a plan to move the Utah State Prison, and two of the sites under strong consideration are located in Salt Lake City.

The next meeting of the State Prison Relocation Commission is December 22 at 2:00 p.m. in Room 210 of the Senate Building at the Utah State Capitol. Please note, public comment is not scheduled to be taken during this meeting but the public is welcome to attend. Opportunity for public comment will be outlined during the meeting.

You can start voicing your concerns now by emailing or calling Prison Relocation Commission Members. Tell State leaders why the Salt Lake City options should be taken off the table!
