Background:

  • In 2013, 66.7% of Lindon City voters approved a 1/10th of 1% (0.1%) increase in the local sales and use tax as a means of enhancing funding for local recreational facilities and cultural organizations within Lindon City. 
  • The purpose of the PARC program is to support recreational facilities and cultural organizations that enrich the overall quality of life for residents throughout Lindon City. The Parks, Arts, Recreation & Culture (PARC) Program is committed to enhancing city recreational and cultural facilities and providing fair and equitable access to PARC funding of cultural organizations through grant opportunities. It will also work to increase the public awareness of the value of the PARC program.
  • PARC tax revenue may only be used for capital development and ongoing operations of government owned or operated recreational and cultural facilities, and for the ongoing operations of nonprofit cultural arts organizations.
  • Recreational facilities are defined as and include parks, playgrounds, golf courses, athletic fields, gymnasiums, swimming pools, trail and bicycle systems, or other facilities used for recreational purposes. Cultural facilities include museums, theaters, art centers, music halls, or other cultural or arts facilities. Again, government owned or operated facilities are the only facilities eligible for PARC funds.
  • Funding for this program comes from sales tax revenues that are collected by the State of Utah and distributed to Lindon City. Sales tax revenues can be volatile depending on economic activity. To ensure more funds are not disbursed than received for the year, total actual PARC revenues cannot be disbursed for any project and/or grant until said revenues have actually been received by the City.
