Since the beginning of the city’s creation, Jeff supported funding for the Millcreek Arts Council and its Summer Jams series, as well as for Millcreek Community Theater. Even before the city was incorporated, he helped start Venture Out, which provides a venue for local musicians to play in front of packed audiences during June and July.
Jeff awarded funding from the Cultural Facilities Implementation Program for the Millcreek Arts Discovery Program to conduct a city-wide comprehensive cultural discovery process to empower Millcreek elected officials to make informed decisions about how best to develop the city’s cultural and artistic resources.
Because of his long commitment to the arts and culture that play a major role in Millcreek, Jeff’s candidacy was endorsed by the Utah Cultural Alliance in 2019.
Millcreek obtained $350,000 in grant funding to improve Sunnyvale Park, including new lighting, futsal courts, and improvements and additions to the playground and pavilion. The City has completed improvements in Canyon Rim and Scott Avenue Parks. Early on in the City’s inception, Jeff led a successful fundraising campaign to purchase open space in Millcreek’s eastern foothills.
