June 2022 Funding Our Future Update June 30th, 2022 This month’s update starts with a tongue-twister: a freshly-formal fifth Funding Our Future focus area! That’s right, the Salt Lake City Council approved the use of Funding Our Future sales tax dollars on another important item: parks and public lands maintenance. Housing, safety, streets and transit projects will continue to be funded by Funding Our Future sales tax revenue – and street reconstruction projects will continue to be funded by the General Obligation bond. The 8.7 million dollar projected growth in sales tax revenue allows Salt Lake City to allocate 2 million dollars from Funding Our Future revenue to parks maintenance without taking funds dedicated to housing, safety, streets and transit. Stay tuned for more on how parks and public lands will benefit from Funding Our Future. Read on for other June highlights.
