Opposing Utah's Prison Relocation
Utah's Prison Relocation Commission recently wrapped up a series of meetings designed to sell the state's residents on the idea of moving the prison out of Draper. Utahns will finally get a chance to put in their two cents on the issue when the committee hosts the first and possibly only public forum next week. Nobody, it seems, wants the prison in their backyard, and citizens from the four communities named as potential relocation sites say they have legitimate reasons to oppose the move. Wednesday, a panel of guests joins us to lay out the objections to prison relocation, and we hope to hear from you.
The Utah Prison Relocation Commission will hold a formal public hearing on Tuesday, June 16, at 6 P.M. in Room 30 of the House Building on Capitol Hill.
