We believe economic development incentives in Utah’s Coal Country are beyond flawed. Few businesses use them and our interviews with locals and economic development experts affirmed they aren’t working. Our Custom Incentives innovation calls for the following:
- Opportunity zones – Create a plan for capitalizing on the designated opportunity zone in the counties.
- Resort community – Examine options for a resort community designation in Price and Castle Dale.
- Other – Consider how to keep local property taxes in the area.
