In the Work Session
As part of its priority to encourage public engagement, Council approved contracting with Peak Democracy to establish an online forum for Provo residents to weigh in on current issues. "Open City Hall" will regularly have topics on which citizens can give input directly to the Council.
The goal is to have Open City Hall open for registration in early November. West side planning will be the first topic open for feedback. Watch for more details soon.
Development Approval Process
Council's Development Approval Process Review Committee has been looking at the application process for development in Provo City and presented some recommendations for improving that process. Some of the recommendations would simplify or clarify, while others would speed up the process. The committee would like to have a more in-depth meeting with Council to discuss these options and determine next steps.
