Sylvania Area Joint Recreation District

S.A.J.R.D. History

The Sylvania Area Joint Recreation District (SAJRD) was formed in 1988 to provide the citizens of the Sylvania area with high quality recreational programs and facilities. The District is a collaboration between the City of Sylvania, Sylvania Township and Sylvania Schools. Each of these political entities appoints four people to the 12-person SAJRD Board.

The District was formed under the Joint Recreation District provision (755.14) of the Ohio revised code. Under this provision, SAJRD can levy voter-approved taxes. Currently, SAJRD has two supporting levies. A .85 mill Permanent Operating levy was passed in 1988 and replaced in 2000. In addition, a .5 mill, 25 year Capital Improvement levy was passed in 1994. Millage on this levy has been reduced over time to .3 mills.

The Sylvania Area Joint Recreation District purchased the land and in several phases, developed Sylvania Pacesetter Park, a 134-acre multi-sport turf grass facility located in the western portion of Sylvania Township. SAJRD funds approximately 40% of the operating budget of Sylvania Recreation Corporation and also provides some funding for other Sylvania area recreational agencies.
