Mayor Jackie Biskupski’s Statement on Passage of H.B. 3002, State Fair Park Funding Amendments

“With their action today the legislature has recognized the key role the Utah State Fair Park plays in Salt Lake City and in our entire state. The Fairpark is a landmark and a valuable public space in our city and deserves economic support and long-term maintenance. This State funding, along with funding from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, the City, and the County, will allow Salt Lake City’s Fairpark area to experience a greatly needed economic boost.”
“Our responsibility as leaders and lawmakers is to create opportunity for everyone, and I’m truly grateful to the Governor and the Legislature for stepping up to do what is right for the residents of Salt Lake City and the State of Utah. We all benefit when we all rise together. The new amenities coming to the Fairpark will ensure this special space remains a vital link between our state’s urban and rural interests and economies.”
