Vote for parks

If you enjoy using parks and local trails, vote yes for Salt Lake County Proposition 1. There are many benefits to having these amenities in our communities:

• They improve the local economy by creating more desirable places to live, which can increase property values and influence the success of businesses.

• They create wonderful opportunities for physical activity, which can greatly improve the health of our people.

• They provide alternative ways to recreate, travel, and commute.

By voting for Proposition 1, residents will be voting to fund four new parks and to complete two local multipurpose trails. For details, visit
