Woods Cross to develop park with RAP revenue

WOODS CROSS (Deseret News) — Woods Cross residents will get a new park and soccer fields thanks to revenue from the city's recreation, arts and parks tax.

Between 2009 and 2017, Woods Cross will collect about $1.5 million from the 0.1 percent sales tax approved by voters in November 2008 and Tuesday night, the City Council agreed to a basic framework for how to spend the money.

Woods Cross City Manager Gary Uresk said the city plans to develop a park located at 2100 West and 1500 South and adjacent to the Legacy Parkway Trail.

The 8- or 9-acre future park sits under power lines and is leftover land from a subdivision development. Developing the park will use most of the RAP tax revenue, Uresk said, adding that he expects the park to have soccer fields.

But a more immediate project will be the paving of a parking lot at Mills Park, Uresk said.
