Preserving open spaces and promoting recreational opportunities in Davis County is not just a luxury but a necessity for our community's well-being. Davis County's natural beauty, from the breathtaking Antelope Island to the upcoming Western Sports Park, showcases our diverse landscape. The presence of both backcountry and urban areas underscores the importance of providing residents with areas to recreate and unwind. As the smallest county geographically, yet boasting the third-largest population, our challenge is unique. It is crucial to collaborate with municipalities to maintain the county's aesthetic appeal and to strategically plan for growth. With 630 square miles and nearly 370,000 residents, ensuring essential gathering and recreation spaces becomes imperative. By preserving open spaces, we not only enhance the quality of life for our residents but also hit the bullseye in fostering a harmonious and thriving community for generations to come.
