Plans for proposed dinosaur park move closer to reality

The proposed Moab Giants Dinosaur Park, slated for construction at the intersection of U.S. 191 and state Route 313, will include life-size dinosaur displays located along outdoor walking trails, an indoor museum and research facilities for scientists, developers told during a public hearing this week.

The applicants received approval for the project’s water and septic systems at the end of 2011 and Horrocks Engineers, which provides engineering services to Grand County, approved the project’s storm-water drainage system, according to documents provided by the Grand County planning commission.
