28 Jul Fairmont Park Master Plan
Posted at 06:45h in Parks, Open Space & Trails
Fairmont Park has long been a hidden gem in the neighborhood.
About 8 years ago Salt Lake City created a master plan for Fairmont Park, but the plan never got adopted and has sat on a shelf for that entire time. Now it is time to finish this master plan and update it with all the new stuff that has already happened and solidify our community vision for the park. SLC Parks & Public Lands is working to finalize this document and would like your input.
City Parks staff will be at the August 3, 2016 general meeting to discuss the master plan and have provided the following breakdown of projects within the park to help. You can give feedback on the plan below.
