The Office of Outdoor Recreation’s Utah Outdoor Recreation Grant was created to help build tourism in communities around the state with the construction and expansion of outdoor recreation amenities. The new trails and other outdoor recreational opportunities aid in local economic development. Many communities find that having nearby recreation opportunities adds to the quality of life of local citizens, helping to attract new residents, and can lead to an increase in local property values. Businesses, especially high-tech firms, consider having nearby outdoor recreation amenities as “absolutely vital” in attracting and keeping high value employees.
