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.

PROVO MUNICIPAL COUNCIL
Work Meeting Agenda
1:00 PM, Tuesday, November 21, 2017
Work Meetings are designed to be a less formal venue for discussion among Council Members. Generally, no public input is taken during the meeting.
- Presentations on the proposal to build a medical school on a portion of the East Bay Golf Course (17-136)
- Provo City has received a proposal that would involve building a medical school on a portion of the East Bay Golf Course. This item will feature two presentations—one by representatives from Wasatch Educational regarding the medical school proposal and the other by representatives from the East Bay Golf Course. Staff will make concerted effort to share presentations from this discussion with the public between November 21st and the Council meeting on December 5th. The Council will receive public comment on this item at the December 5th Council Meeting. The goal is to provide details to the public and the Council regarding the medical school proposal and the current status of the East Bay Golf Course.
A discussion on the Accessory Apartment Overlay Zone, the Supplementary Residential Overlay Zone, and related zoning topics(17-137)
- At the request of various Council members, Gary McGinn from Community Development will go over the differences between the Accessory Apartment Overlay Zone (A Overlay), the Supplementary Residential Overlay Zone (S Overlay), and the provision allowing citizens who are 65 years and older to have accessory apartments. The goal is to provide Council members with a clear understanding of the differences between specific overlay zones in the City Code.
