Citizens Agenda for Meetings on January 9, 2018

Citizens Agenda

Council meeting agendas are often difficult for people to navigate. Filled with jargon and legal requirements on how an item must be listed, it can be a challenge to determine what Council members are actually discussing or deciding on.
What follows is a staff interpretation of the agendas.
The official published agendas and supporting materials can be found here:  http://publicdocuments.provo.org/sirepub/meet.aspx


PROVO MUNICIPAL COUNCIL
Work Meeting Agenda
12:00 PM, Tuesday, January 9, 2018


Work Meetings are designed to be a less formal venue for discussion among Council Members. Generally, no public input is taken during the meeting.


Business
  1. A semi-annual report from the Sustainability Committee and Agricultural Commission (18-009)
    • The Sustainability Committee and Agricultural Commission were established by the Mayor and present a report to the Council twice each year. The group will also be making a request that the City of Provo approve a resolution requesting that the Utah State Legislature sustain budgetary support of the LeRay McAllister Fund, created to help permanently protect Utah’s agricultural lands.
  2. A recap on Council's 2016-2017 Priorities (17-011)
    • Council established a list of priorities in early 2016 and decided in 2017 to continue to focus on the same priorities. Council staff will give an update on the progress in each priority area as Council members prepare to consider their priorities moving forward.

Input Wanted on Medical School Proposal

Provo City has received a proposal that would involve building a medical school on a portion of the East Bay Golf Course. We previously asked for your comments in preparation for the Council meeting on December 5, 2017. At that meeting, Council members voted to hold a public hearing regarding the possibility of placing the portion of the golf course property on the surplus property list. This hearing will be at the January 9, 2018, Council meeting.
Since the original presentation on November 21 and the updates on December 5, Wasatch Educational, Provo Parks and Recreation, Provo City Administration, and East Bay Golf Course have refined the proposal to ensure a better balance between the development and the existing uses of the site.

https://www.facebook.com/events/134770490544530/Information on this updated proposal can be found on Open City Hall as well as an opportunity to contribute your comments so they can be shared with Council members in preparation for the January 9 public hearing.
An Open House is being held at the Provo Recreation Center on Thursday, January 4, from 6-8 pm to allow the public to ask questions and learn more details of the proposal
