Land deal for inland port in Salt Lake in process

While Salt Lake City officials warily await a bill to establish a state inland port in the city’s northwest quadrant, a deal is already in progress to clean up a swath of land long eyed for that purpose. The roughly 770-acre site of the old Salt Lake City landfill, located north of I-80 and west of 5600 West, is owned by Suburban Land Reserve, a real estate arm of the LDS Church, but conversations are taking place to put the land under the purview of a state agency. David Ure, director of the Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration, confirmed Tuesday the agency is “working out agreements” with Suburban Land Reserve regarding the old landfill site.
