Project Ideas Fruit Heights City receives many requests each year to provide Eagle Scout projects. Please remember, it is the responsibility of the Scout, in keeping with the spirit of the Eagle project, to approach the city with their own idea for a project and then to work closely with the city in implementing the proposal. We invite you to tour the city, looking for areas that need improvement.
The following are suggestions for Eagle Scout projects:
- Organize a tree-planting drive for any neighborhood, city street or city park.
- Help improve or construct walking & biking trails in designated areas of the city
- Sponsor an event for Founders Day which is held in August of each year.
- Construct and install park and trail signs throughout the city.
- Purchase and install certain park features, including playground equipment, picnic tables, park benches, pavilions, etc.
- Be part of the city's Storm Water Management System, teach a class at school, or create an awareness booth at Founders Day.
- Assist with a Voter Outreach Program in conjunction with a Municipal Election.
- Assist the City with informing residents about the Fire Wise program.
Funding the Project
A big portion of your project may be the raising of adequate funds to complete the project. Fruit Heights can sometimes provide funding for projects. However, please don't assume that every project will be funded by the city. It is the responsibility of the Scout to provide funding for the project through donations of time, material and/or money from members of the community. The city has limited funds and only, in rare circumstances, will participate in funding the project.
