Meet our new Board

The new Fairpark Community Council Board was elected at the Annual Meeting in April.  This process takes place every two years.

The Board has 17 members which comprise the Executive Committee: Chair, first and second Vice-Chairs, Secretary and Treasurer. The remaining members serve as “at-large” members.  All Board members serve in a variety of capacities.

Each month we will feature a Board member to help our community learn to know them a little better.

You can view the list of Board members and bios here.

Utah State Fairpark Gets Legislative Support

fairUp to $10 million in state money may be coming to the Utah State Fairpark.  The Fairpark Board was able to participate in a meeting at the Utah State Capital this month and speak to a panel of lawmakers about how important the heritage of the Fairpark is to our community.  This legislative panel will be opening the issue of funding and renewing the lease for debate when the Legislature reconvenes in January.

“The time for studies and discussions should be over,” said Bryce Garner, chairman of the Fairpark Community Council. “Anything that brings sustainability to the Fair and keeps the Fairgrounds where they are, intact, is something we wholeheartedly support.”

Discussions during the meeting involved bringing the Salt Lake County Fair and the Days of ’47 Rodeo to the fairgrounds, as well as major structural improvements to the grounds including renovating the rodeo arena, or adding an Expo style building for conferences.  More business to the State Fairpark means more positive growth for our area and the possibility of better restaurants, shopping and retail to support the growth.
