Police, Fire and and Public Works Department
I want to give thanks to the efforts of the Layton City Police Department,
the Layton City Fire Department and our Public Works Department, all of which serve and tirelessly protect us.
These outstanding men and women
serve us at a moment's notice in all kinds of situations. It is because of their service that we enjoy a high degree of safety and security within
The safety, scurity and educational options of the children in Layton are some of my top priorities. It is important that our children can get to
I am committed to work with our school district, city staff and local officials to ensure that the number of crosswalks near our schools are adequate
and fully staffed.
I completely endorse the DARE program that teaches students the importance of staying away from drugs.
I will continue to support RADkids, which is a program run by
the Layton City Police Department and teaches, trains and
empowers children with skills to combat potential harm
or violence they may encounter. I also fully support the
numerous schooling options Layton offers for our
children, such as the public, charter and private schools.
As your elected representative, I will continue to
champion these important topics for our Layton children
The Davis Arts Council is a fantastic organization in our
community that has done an outstanding job promoting
local and national talent. I have had the privilege of being
a liaison to this organization as a Layton City
Councilwoman and volunteer numerous hours during the performance season.
As a result, I would like to make
certain that we continue to enhance our performance
facilities and support a feasibility study for an indoor
performance center. However, these improvements
would not only be for current performing acts to use. It
would be amazing to see programs to train up and
coming artist in our very own community.
Layton as a Destination Place
Layton has many things to offer that make us a unique community. Two years
ago I championed starting Layton F.E.S.T (Farmers, Entertainment, Shopping,
Trucks) as a way to bring citizens and
commerce together at Layton Park.
Last year I spearheaded our own Layton Electric Light Parade, which is a non-
motorized pedestrian parade on July 24th for everyone to participate. The only requirement is to
illuminate your self or a float that
you can push, pull or roll as long
as it’s family friendly. I would
also like to see colorful lights
under our overpasses as drivers
come through Layton for the
major holidays, such as
Christmas, Easter, July 4 and
Layton Commons Park is the scene of the delightful Christmastime tradition
where our community has an opportunity to enjoy either driving through or
walking around the spectacular Christmas lights and music. I would like to expand
this tradition over the next few years and work towards making a more interactive
way for residents to feel further connected with our wonderful community.
It is my desire that together we can work to improve upon and create family
friendly events where residents can get to know each other in a fun and enjoyable
Parks and Recreation
Layton has some of the most beautiful scenery in all of Utah.
Our community would benefit from a plan to develop some of
the open space into recreational areas for soccer, football,
lacrosse or baseball fields. As a result, we would be able to
host more tournaments which would put Layton on the map as
the premier destination for sporting events thus bringing
greater tourism and economic development to our area.
Pickleball is another sport that has gained popularity. I would
like to work towards developing more courts both indoors and
out for the pickleball players in our community. Making sure
our citizens have access to recreation activities is of the utmost
importance to me.
Additionally, Layton has some great programs through our
Parks and Recreation Department that has many activities for
our residents. Examples of these programs include Arts in the
Park, gymnastics, tennis, swimming and skateboarding. Let’s
continue to support these programs and look at finding even
more classes that would encourage our residents to participate.
These wonderful organizations are a great way for the citizens
of Layton to participate and become involved in the
R.A.M.P. ( Recreation, Arts, Museums and Parks) refers to the tax initiative our
voters approved in November of 2015.
I championed this initiative along with a group of dedicated citizens to educate
and help pass this taxation. The purpose of R. A. M. P. is to receive one penny in
retail (excluding grocery) sales tax on every ten dollar purchase.
The money is then collected each year and directly invested into Layton City
through a grant process. It can only be spent in four areas: Recreation, Arts,
Museums or Parks.
R. A. M. P Commissioners then review the grant requests each year and make
recommendations to the City Council on what projects should be funded. The five
at-large Commissioners are Layton citizens like you, who act upon our best
interest and serve our city well.
