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
Joint Meeting with Provo Housing Authority
12:00 PM, Tuesday, July 17, 2018
- Council regularly schedules meetings with key boards and commissions to discuss current issues and ways to improve processes.
- A discussion on community land trusts
- A community land trust (CLT) is a nonprofit corporation that develops and stewards affordable housing, community gardens, civic buildings, commercial spaces and other community assets on behalf of a community. “CLTs” balance the needs of individuals to access land and maintain security of tenure with a community’s need to maintain affordability, economic diversity and local access to essential services.
- Further discussion of any items as requested by Council or Housing Authority Board members
PROVO MUNICIPAL COUNCIL
Work Meeting Agenda
1:00 PM, Tuesday, July 17, 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.
- A discussion on citywide tax incentives and retail reinvestment (18-057)
- In effort to pursue the City Council’s Economic Development priority, the Council has heard presentations regarding tax increment funding (TIF) in recent work sessions.

- A discussion on the Real Estate Purchase Agreement and Development Agreement for a medical school at the golf course (17-136) and (17-143)
- The Administrative Staff and the developers of the new medical school (being built on the a portion of the golf course property) have now exchanged draft agreements several times and are now ready to bring a substantially complete agreement to the Council for review, discussion and verification that the documents substantially conform to the direction and discussion that transpired in the January 2018 Municipal Council meeting.
