Salt Lake County Park Bond

Park & Trails Bond

In November of 2012, Salt Lake County voters had the opportunity to approve the Park and Trails Bond, which authorized the County to issue $47 million in bonds to complete the Jordan River Parkway Trail, Parley’s Trail, acquire land for future park development in Magna, and build three new regional parks in Bluffdale, Draper and West Valley City/Kearns.

Parley's Trail

Salt Lake County held a series of six public meetings before general election day, November 6, 2012 to discuss Proposition #1, the Regional Park and Trails Bond. The meetings were held in an open house format where residents were encouraged to talk with County officials about how the bond monies will be used and the impact the bond will have on their property taxes. Full list of Public Meetings.

Park and Trail Bond Projects - $47,000,000

47 million is not a low cost, but $5.73 per average household, per year is a manageable cost to provide important infrastructure to our community. $5.73 is based on a $238,000 home on a 20 year bond.
