Utahns Invited to Attend Prison Demolition; Signifying A New Chapter for Utah

On Tuesday, November 29th at 10am, Utahns are invited to watch the demolition of the old state prison facilities where The Point, an innovation community, will be built. The demolition crew is scheduled to take down the decades-old prison guard tower, signaling a new chapter in redeveloping the site in an innovation community. 

Speakers at the event will include Gary Herbert, Former Governor of Utah, Alan Matheson, The Point Executive Director, and Troy Walker, Draper City Mayor. The even will also be livestreamed on The Point YouTube Channel

The Point is a land development project led by Alan Matheson that will be an all-in-one, environmentally conscious community, centered on innovation. The Point will offer attainable housing options, advance innovation, catalyze robust economic opportunity, provide parks and regional trail connections, and ultimately enhances Utahns' quality of life. The Point will be located right in between Utah's two most populated counties where the empty Utah prison is now.
