Where's Eagle Mountain?
Eagle Mountain, UT is located on the northwest side of Utah County, one of the fastest growing counties in the United States. With the tech explosion in northern and central Utah County, growth is pushing west into this area, and companies like Facebook are taking note. Dublin Farms is located only a few blocks off of Pony Express Parkway, which allows residents quick access to the amenities of Saratoga Springs, and access to Northern Utah County via the new Pioneer Crossing Highway.
Headquartered in Dakota Dunes, SD, Tyson Fresh Meats announced today that Tyson Foods (their parent company) will be investing $300 million into building a facility in the rapidly growing Eagle Mountain Utah.
Their new food production plant is expected to bring approx. 1,200 jobs and will be located in the Pole Canyon development around the southwest end of the city.
"The facility will initially provide 800 jobs and is expected to provide up to 1,200 within three years after its 2021 scheduled opening.
The facility will cut and package meats that are brought in from other areas and will be Tyson’s fourth such facility in the United States. Starting wages for hourly employees with Tyson range from $14.40 to $16.50 an hour, the city’s news release claims. The annual local payroll is projected at $44 million."
“We welcome Tyson Fresh Meats to Eagle Mountain,” Eagle Mountain Mayor Tom Westmoreland said in the news release. “This facility will provide jobs for our community, allowing people to work closer to home. It will also bring needed infrastructure, especially roads that will provide better east/west connection to the Cedar Valley. Tyson Foods is the second Fortune 100 company to invest in our city and we look forward to a great community partnership.”
Last year we learned that a massive new Facebook data center would be coming to Eagle Mountain bringing a $750 million investment to the city. A result of extensive effort by the city to bring new data centers to the valley.
"Tyson’s move to Eagle Mountain will undoubtedly bring even more expansive growth to the city, and the Alpine School District Board of Education is set to discuss a potential $11.5 million in tax cuts for the company, according to a project plan from the Eagle Mountain Redevelopment Agency. In exchange, the company would gift the district 10 acres for the site of a new elementary school that could accommodate the influx of people coming into the community as a result of the new plant."
This is what our project is looking like in Eagle Mountain: (Dublin Farms)
