Pleasant Grove Public Safety Building Donation Campaign
Please Make a Lasting Donation to Pleasant Grove City Public Safety!
Letter from Mayor Guy Fugal
Dear Pleasant Grove Residents:
Early in the estimating process for the new Public Safety Building, the PSB Committee identified a need of about $2.5M in donations to finish fleshing out the construction budget. At that time, several residents stepped forward with commitments to help fill that need. We are thrilled to announce as of March 1st, we’ve received just under $2M in cash donations. That means $2M or 80% of the $2.5M donation goal has been reached. All that remains now is $500K or 20% to reach the full $2.5M in donations. Thank you to those who have made this milestone a reality.
The new facilities are currently under construction, but any donations will help lessen the tax burden. This is your chance to be recognized for decades for your generosity as any donation over $100 will receive recognition in the new building. You can be a part of this legacy building.
The new Public Safety facilities will serve our residents and businesses for the next 50+ years. The commercial growth in the Grove along Pleasant Grove Blvd. is already in full swing. Our population is expected to grow during those 5 decades as well. Our building must be of adequate size and durability to handle the growing demand for services from both commercial expansion and residential infill. We are asking our community to donate to this cause.
The HONORARY COLONELS, a 501(c)3 non-profit has volunteered to be the collection agency for those donations. Contributions made will be tax deductible. You may donate any amount. Any donation of $100-$5,000 will be recognized on a plaque in the building. Donations over $5,000 will receive a special designation in the building.
You may donate anonymously. The more people who participate, the less the burden will be on all of us. Won’t you please participate in any way you can?
You can make your donation at this website on the Donate page.
Thank you in advance for making Pleasant Grove a safe place to live, work, and play.
