In the Work Session
Franklin and Franklin South Neighborhoods
A group of three MPA students from Brigham Young University have been working on a project in the Franklin and Franklin South Neighborhoods. They developed an independent action plan to revitalize the neighborhoods and presented this information to he Economic Development Department as well as the City Council. Their recommendations included conducting a comprehensive housing study of the area, encouraging more mixed use developments while maintaining historic ideas and feels, providing amenities that attract millennials, and reevaluating the residential conservation zones to attract businesses that will influence economic development for the area.

We appreciate the shout-out from Mayor Curtis on our work to improve zoning compliance in Provo. The Council voted to create a Zoning Compliance Committee and continues to move forward with recommendations on improving the land use (development) application process.
Great progress has been made on the priorities set one year ago and Council members decided to continue on with the same group of priorities for 2017. While none of these will ever truly be "done," it is hoped that room can be made for other items that need the Council's attention in the future. Dave Harding explained, "Some of these desired outcomes will take years to achieve, but we have been able to set a course."
Dave Sewell commented on the work done regarding the development application process, "We made a lot of progress but there's still a lot to do around implementation."
Each area of priority has most of the goals or outcomes being addressed in some way. Kim Santiago also pointed out that many accomplishments were made that were outside of the specific desired outcomes listed when the priorities were set.
The Council will continue to pursue its nine priorities identified last year and looks forward to ongoing progress in each area.
