Utah State law allows Counties of the First Class (Salt Lake County only) to levy a $10 vehicle registration fee, $3 of which is then placed into the Salt Lake County Local Corridor Preservation Fund. Monies from the Fund are to be used for the purchase of land for the preservation of future transportation corridors. These corridors may include those to be used for public transit and active transportation projects provided that they are associated with a road.
The Salt Lake County Council of Governments (COG) has the responsibility to review applications for monies from the Fund from the various cities and Salt Lake County. Upon approval by the COG, these applications are submitted to the Salt Lake County Council for their ratification.
Application Deadline: November 17, 2017
