UIPA Project Areas

A UIPA project area is a vibrant and strategically planned zone, created to be a catalyst for economic growth and innovation. It's a place where businesses can tap into a rich ecosystem of resources, infrastructure, and support, offered by the Utah Inland Port Authority. By choosing a UIPA project area to start, grow or expand your business, you're aligning with a forward-thinking community, committed to driving progress and success. This is not just a location; it's a gateway to opportunities, where your business can expand its horizons and achieve new heights.

Project Area Process



A municipality or county can request UIPA commence work on drafting a project area plan. The municipality or county adopts a project area resolution in a public meeting.



UIPA staff work with the municipality or county to develop a project area plan or amend a project area plan for the UIPA board to review in at least 2 public board meetings.



The UIPA board may adopt a project area or project area amendment in a public meeting.



This phase will take 25 years to complete. During this phase, construction, development, and recruitment will occur in the project area.



Project area budgets are annually prepared and adopted by the UIPA board. In addition, project area KPIs are reported and shared.
