Types of Sites

The goal of Site Ready Utah is to make the selection process easier by proactively locating and certifying sites for future large-scale projects. This is also why we have separated our sites into three categories:

  • Certified Site for large-scale projects. 50-400 acres
  • Mega Site 1 for mega-scale projects. 400+ acres
  • Mega Site 2 same mega-scale acreage with additional certification
