Anticipating Provo +50


In an exciting milestone for Provo city, the next step in planning for the future has come together in the interactive summit Provo +50, a continuation of Vision 2030, which has guided the city's priorities until now. 

Community leaders, stakeholders, and interested parties are invited to attend the summit from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm on April 17, 2013 at the Utah Valley Convention Center in Downtown Provo. 

The Council would like to thank Mayor Curtis and his team for the hard work in organizing this event, and seeing it come to fruition. The Council is also looking forward to getting YOUR feedback from this summit. The Council may consider adopting officially the Vision which comes out of the summit as a policy guide to aid and direct future legislative action and budgets. 

The summit will include seven short presentations (presented consecutively) in the presentation format popularized as "TED Talks". Discussions will focus on future trends in subjects such as education, technology, demographics, healthcare, transportation, the economy, and natural resources from recognized experts. The summit will also include 90-minute round-table discussions dealing with topics presented during the talks. 

A luncheon will then be served to participants, where some informal polling will be conducted for immediate feedback on some of the issues discussed in the breakout sessions.

The keynote speaker will be Bishop H. David Burton, Emeritus Presiding Bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He will be addressing the future of Utah, Utah Valley, and Provo and what community leaders can do today to prepare for that future. For more information about the summit go to provoplus50.org
