  Revitalize Pioneer Park
There are a number of ways you can become involved in revitalizing Pioneer Park.
Use the park

The best way to make a park safe is for you to use the park regularly.  If numerous people consistently use the park the drug dealers and alcoholics will go elsewhere.  Visit Pioneer Park during your lunch hour or spend some time in the early evening.  We suggest in current conditions that you go with another person.  Homeless people are not dangerous because they are homeless.  People whom are intoxicated. mentally unstable, or using illegal drugs may be dangerous.  Most will not approach you if you are with a group.  If you are threatened in any way, please call the police at 799-3000 or 911. 

Contact your Council Member

If you want Pioneer Park to change, call your council member at 535-7600 or write them with your suggestions.  Pioneer Park is located in District 4, Nancy Saxton's District.

Contact your Senator

Salt Lake City has requested $900,000 in federal funds to help us complete the second stage of improvements for Pioneer Park. The funds would come from the Economic Development Initiative (EDI) program in the Transportation, Treasury, and Housing and Urban Development FY07 Appropriations Bill.  

Please contact Senators Hatch and Senator Bennett to let them know you support Salt Lake City's request for $900,000 in EDI funds for Pioneer Park.
