Utah officials announce 3 meetings to take public questions on prison relocation


SALT LAKE CITY — Utah officials looking for a new place to build a state prison are planning to hold meetings over the next few months where local residents can ask questions about the project.

Lawmakers on the state Prison Relocation Commission announced Tuesday meetings that will be held on May 20, May 28 and June 2 in Salt Lake City, Grantsville and Eagle Mountain.

Five locations they're looking at for a new prison are in or near those cities.

The meetings will start at 4 p.m. and include a question and answer session with consultants, prison officials and more.

State Rep. Brad Wilson, a chairman of the commission, says they want the process to be transparent and include public feedback.
