An independent consulting firm estimated direct economic impact of The Campus and other facilities is
$100-150 million dollars with a multiplier effect that will ripple throughout Payson and the surrounding areas.
Examples include the following:
New businesses will be attracted to Payson as a result of the coming campus. The needs of the area will expand in previously unanticipated ways, requiring the growth of industries necessary to address these new needs.
Additional businesses will be needed to provide services to students, faculty, and other staff. These include restaurants, retailers, medical services, personal services and others.
New businesses will generate sales tax revenue that remain in the Town of Payson. New jobs will generate income that will also be spent in Payson and the surrounding communities.
