What's the future for the Point of the Mountain area?

SALT LAKE COUNTY (News4Utah)-  The Point of the Mountain area is the center of a growing high-tech community. Soon the Utah State Prison will be relocating from the area, providing an opportunity for booming growth in the area.

Monday, the Utah State Legislature's Point of the Mountain Development Commission will vote on the "vision" for the area. Envision Utah presented five possible scenarios for the area in November and has narrowed its findings to one preferred scenario. 

The "vision" presented by Envision Utah, is a result of feedback from the commission, stakeholders, and people living in the area.

After the commission approves the vision they will present recommendations to the governor and legislature during the 2018 session. They hope to completely develop the land by 2050.
