Citizens Agenda for Meetings on November 21, 2017

Citizens Agenda (1).pngCitizens 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 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
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.


Business
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. A discussion on adopting the Provo Parking Strategic Management Plan as a guide for decision making and policy formation (17-126)
    • This is a follow-up to a series of discussions Council has had with Provo City’s Parking Administrator. Council will be discussing whether they would like to officially adopt the Provo Parking Strategic Management Plan, developed by Kimley-Horn Associates, at a future Council meeting as a guide for decision making and policy formation.
  4. A discussion on proposed text amendments to Title 11 regarding sanitation services (17-123)
    • This is a follow-up to the discussion at the October 3, 2017, work meeting to establish a minimum requirement for sanitation services at all residential dwellings throughout the City.
    • The purpose of this proposed text amendment is to ensure residential participation in the curbside garbage collection (black can) to maintain revenue and provide
      clarification in the Sanitation code for minimum requirements for residential waste collection.to ensure that each residential unit is providing for adequate waste removal. This will be voted on at the November 21 Council meeting.
  5. A presentation from Finance on operating budget carryovers (17-135)
    • Finance Department will provide an update on how carryover money from the budget has been used or allocated.
  6. A discussion on proposed new Fire Department fees (17-133)
    • Acting on a request from the Budget Committee, Council has asked for a regular review of city fees to compare them to actual costs. The Fire Department will be presenting information on the costs involved with their fees listed on the Consolidated Fee Schedule and their recommendations for a new false alarm fee.
  7. A discussion on proposed Neighborhood Program changes (17-138)
    • The Neighborhood Program Review Committee has worked with the Neighborhood Advisory Board to update the ordinance language in Provo City Code regarding the Neighborhood Program. This presentation will give Council members a first look at the proposed changes to the ordinance and get their input. The Neighborhood Program Review Committee will review input received from Council members and Neighborhood Chairs and Vice Chairs to make any additional changes before bringing the final proposal to the December 5 Council meeting. Proposed changes include transforming the Neighborhood Advisory Board (NAB) into the Neighborhood Advisory Committee (NAC), a Council committee; defining the membership and duties of the NAC; outlining the matching grant application process; and reverting the Downtown Neighborhood back to the standard neighborhood structure of electing a Chair from its residents.
  8. A discussion on the proposed 2018 Council meeting calendar, the timing of Council meetings, and the election of the Municipal Council Chair (17-139)
    • Utah Code requires that the Council publish the scheduled meetings for the coming year. Council has traditionally met on the first and third Tuesdays of the month, but staff have recommended some adjustments to the schedule based on major holidays, election dates, and other factors. Because of the proposed change for the first Council meeting of the year, Provo City Code Section 2.50.020 would need to be amended to change the current requirement that the Council Chair be elected on the first Tuesday of each year. The calendar will be voted on at the November 21 Council meeting.
