Citizens Agenda for Meetings on October 4, 2022

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 challenging to determine what Council members are 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://agendas.provo.org 


This meeting will be conducted both in-person and virtually. The in-person meeting will be held in the Council Chambers. The meeting will be available to the public for live broadcast and on-demand viewing on YouTube and Facebook at: youtube.com/provocitycouncil and facebook.com/provocouncil.

PROVO MUNICIPAL COUNCIL

Work Meeting Agenda

1:00 pm, Tuesday, October 4, 2022

Council Chambers (Room 100)

445 W. Center Street, Provo, UT 84601 or https://www.youtube.com/provocitycouncil 


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. An ordinance amending the General Plan Section 1.2.9 (Lakeview North Neighborhood) and appendix C5 (Lakeview Fields SDP). Lakeview North Neighborhood. (PLGPA20220182)


  1. An ordinance amending the zone map classification of approx. 15.73 acres, generally located at 1878 N and 1804 N Geneva Road, from Residential (R1.20) to Very Low-Density Residential (VLDR) zone. Lakeview North Neighborhood. (PLGPA20220182)


  1. An ordinance amending the Regional Shopping Center (SC3) zone to allow Animal Hospital Services as permitted use. Citywide application. (PLOTA20220274)


  1. An ordinance approving a petition to vacate an undeveloped public street near the Springville boundary and approving a plat amendment and property exchange in order to facilitate the development of a new, adjacent public street. (22-042)

    • There are two parcels of ground located in southeast Provo, a part of the Mountain Vista Business Center, that will be isolated and function as nuisance strips, as the extension of Sierra Vista Drive is constructed. In working with the Utah Department of Transportation to gain access from the City road system onto the State road system, Provo City, along with several property owners, are required to relinquish their right of access in order to consolidate into one new access point - at the extension of Sierra Vista Drive. As part of the negotiations to facilitate and encourage an adjacent property owner (Gateway Crossing Development) to relinquish their point of access, City staff is recommending trading land for giving up the point of access. One of the parcels is being created by shifting the new road alignment to the west of its current alignment, and it will create a narrow remnant parcel next to an already narrow remnant parcel. The value of the property the City is giving up was appraised at $60,000.00, and the relinquished access was appraised at $55,000.00.

  1. A presentation regarding an update on the Provo River Delta Restoration from the Utah Reclamation Mitigation and Conservation Commission (22-071)

    • The Utah Reclamation Mitigation and Conservation Commission (federal agency tasked with the Provo River Delta Restoration Project) would like some time in a work meeting sometime before mid-October to give a status update and discuss some work that will be starting in October on the diversion of the Provo River below Lakeshore Drive.

  1. A discussion regarding a proposed Timpanogos Golf Club Transfer (22-074)

  •  In the fiscal year 2020, the Timpanogos Golf Club was under reconstruction to accommodate the new medical school development and construct three new holes on the east side of the golf course. The golf course was open in the spring, but then the COVID-19 pandemic closure was mandated. This closure allowed expanded access, so construction was expedited to be completed as quickly and efficiently as possible. As a result, annual revenues decreased from $947K in fiscal 2019 to $450K in fiscal 2020. This revenue loss at the golf course during construction was contemplated at the time by Administration, Council, and the Golf Course team.

  1. A discussion and update from the Natural Resources Committee regarding water conservation. (22-075)

    • The Council's Natural Resources Committee, in light of the ongoing drought in Utah and the American West, has been discussing possible legislative and budgetary actions to take to help increase water conservation efforts at the city, business, and individual levels. This presentation and subsequent discussion will be a chance for the Committee to share their findings and discuss water conservation efforts currently and in the future.

  1. A presentation regarding towing ordinances (22-076)

    • This presentation is a follow-up on questions Councilors had regarding code about towing signage, charges/costs, and delivery vehicle exemptions.

  2. An ordinance amending Provo City Code Section 4.01.010 regarding the process for making appointments to the civil service commission to align with state code. (22-009)

    • The current process for appointing members of the Civil Service Commission, as outlined in the City code, is not consistent with the procedure outlined in State Code. This ordinance amendment will bring the process into alignment with the State Code, which designates the legislative body as the appointing authority for the Commission.


Closed Meeting

  • Closed meetings (aka executive meetings) are held without the public present and must meet one of the conditions listed in the Utah State Code (§ 52-4-204 and 52-4-205 et. seq.). It will be announced at that time if a closed meeting is needed.

What do those numbers at the ends of the agenda items mean?

  • Items on the agenda are given a file number by Council staff or Community Development staff to help track the item through the legislative process and organize the supporting materials.

  • You may find it helpful in cases where an item may be worded differently on different agendas. Matching up that file number helps you see that it is the same issue.
