  • ZAP Initiative Goes to Public Vote in November

    pennySalt Lake County voters will have the opportunity to decide, this November 4th, whether they want to continue the long-running Zoo, Arts & Parks (ZAP) Program.

    When you pay sales tax in Salt Lake County, a portion
    (one penny for every $10 spent) funds 30+ parks and recreational facilities and provides grants to over 160 arts and cultural organizations.

    Since 1997, the public has voted in support of the ZAP Program and renewed it twice.
    In 2004, this proposal was approved by 71% of voters.
