The Salt Lake City Council will hold a fact-finding session on economic development in the Northwest Quadrant (NWQ) and a related global trade/inland port proposal on Tuesday afternoon, starting at 1 p.m. at the City & County Building.
Salt Lake City’s stewardship of the Northwest Quadrant is one of the 2018 priorities for the Council.
The purpose of the session is to gather information about what’s been done to date, what’s proposed, and what NWQ stakeholders envision for this region. State lawmakers are considering creating a global trade/ inland port authority that could impact the City’s role in the NWQ.
The Council is convening a variety of stakeholders for an exploratory conversation. Invitees include State lawmakers, City department directors, NWQ property owners, the Global Inland Port study consultant, and others.
The public is encouraged to learn more by attending Tuesday’s meeting or watching it on SLCtv Channel 17 or the internet.
