The Economic Impact Of Uintah County'S Western Park
AbstractUintah County is home to a multiactivity conference complex located in Vernal, Utah. The complex is almost in constant use and includes locally sponsored activities, as well as regional and national activities. An estimate of local and nonlocal users were identified from Mr. Derk Hatch, manager of Western Park. I assumed that nonlocal use originated outside the county. Taking into account the local and nonlocal mix, it is estimated that the center annually generates over $4.8 million dollars in economic activity, with approximately 60% a result of direct expenditures. The complex also results in additional employment opportunities for approximately 136 individuals, summarizing direct, indirect, and induced effects. The countys population change as a result of the center is just over 300 persons. These estimates assume that the county would be at or near full-employment in the absence of the Western Park complex.
