Great Utah ShakeOut

Be Ready Utah holds an annual event to remind people to prepare for earthquakes and to allow individuals, companies, and organizations to practice earthquake drills. The Great Utah ShakeOut website has information on the event as well as a wealth of resources for those interested in participating.

Provo's Emergency Notification System

In the event of a real emergency, we would activate our emergency alert system to notify residents. This system enables us to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, law enforcement activity, missing persons and evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods.

When we issue a notification about a potential safety hazard or concern, you will receive a message on the voice or text communication methods that you have registered, such as your home, mobile or business phones, email address, text messages and more. You pick where, you pick how. Sign up here if you haven’t already. If you have already signed up, login and see what new alert options are available.

Our staff always finds a fun way to bring attention to the Great Utah Shake-Out!

Rental Disclosure Requirement

For more than two years now, the Provo City Council has had zoning compliance as one of its top priorities. As Provo continues to grow, the Council is faced with the challenge of ensuring that our residents still enjoy that feeling of home. In November 2017, the Council adopted an ordinance about rental law. Since that time, Council has revisited the ordinance and made some revisions. 

The hope is that the new requirements would educate tenants on the occupancy restrictions while making sure that landlords are aware of the number of tenants living in the residence, leading to better compliance with Provo's zoning laws.

This change directly impacts those who rent out residential space in Provo or those who are residential tenants in Provo. The effective date is August1, 2018, and we want to give you time to prepare. 


Here are the basics:

Council Invites Input on Update to General Plan

https://www.peakdemocracy.com/portals/258/Issue_6160

Provo City's General Plan is in need of an update and the City Council would like your input. 


What is the General Plan?

The General Plan is a broad planning guideline for the City's future development goals and provides policy statements to achieve those goals. The General Plan is the foundation for establishing goals, purposes, zoning, and activities allowed on each land parcel to provide compatibility and continuity to the entire region as well as each neighborhood.

What do you need from me?

Visit Open City Hall. Take a look at the draft that we've put together. You can read the text inside Open City Hall or download a PDF for each chapter. Tell us your opinions and suggestions. Let us know if we are on the right track for guiding Provo's future development.

This draft will be open for comments until noon on April 30, 2018. Registered users of Open City Hall can return and make edits and additions to their comments until that time.

  1. A presentation to Bryce Mumford for five years of service award
    • Bryce Mumford is being honored for reaching over five years of service as a policy analyst in the Council office.

  3. A discussion on an ordinance amendment to Provo City Code 6.14.080 Proximity Restrictions for the Premises of Licensed Beer Retailers (18-041)
    • This would bring City Code in line with a 2017 change to Utah State Code defining proximity restrictions for alcoholic beverage licenses and where they will be granted within specific proximity measurements to a community location (church, school, etc.).
  4. A presentation by the Provo Bicycle Committee
  5. An update on the Victim Services Grant (18-028)

    • Neighborhood chairs felt that the noticing process for different steps in the development approval process needed some updates and clarification. To address this, a Council subcommittee, formed from members of the Development Approval Process Review (DAPR) Committee, would like propose changes to Provo City Code Chapter 2.29.040 (Neighborhood Program), 14.02.010 (Zoning), and 15.17.040 (Land Use and Development). The changes will address when neighborhood meetings are required, the amount of noticing required of the developer, and the process for moving the application to the Planning Commission agenda.

      • The purpose of this proposal is to bring the public and City Council up to speed on the Land and Water Conservation Fund conversion and proposed surplus of
        the Timp-Kiwanis Park property owned by Provo City.
      • Over the past year the Parks and Recreation Department has been working with Clegg Consult and the State to remove the LWCF designation on Timp-Kiwanis Park. Upon approval of this conversion, Parks and Recreation proposes that the property is surplussed and sold to Provo School District. Provo School District needs the property to meet Title IX requirements. The proceeds of the purchase are required to be used to purchase land only.

    Citizens Agenda for Meetings on January 9, 2018

    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 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
    12:00 PM, Tuesday, January 9, 2018


    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. A semi-annual report from the Sustainability Committee and Agricultural Commission (18-009)
      • The Sustainability Committee and Agricultural Commission were established by the Mayor and present a report to the Council twice each year. The group will also be making a request that the City of Provo approve a resolution requesting that the Utah State Legislature sustain budgetary support of the LeRay McAllister Fund, created to help permanently protect Utah’s agricultural lands.
    2. A recap on Council's 2016-2017 Priorities (17-011)
      • Council established a list of priorities in early 2016 and decided in 2017 to continue to focus on the same priorities. Council staff will give an update on the progress in each priority area as Council members prepare to consider their priorities moving forward.

    Input Wanted on Medical School Proposal

    Provo City has received a proposal that would involve building a medical school on a portion of the East Bay Golf Course. We previously asked for your comments in preparation for the Council meeting on December 5, 2017. At that meeting, Council members voted to hold a public hearing regarding the possibility of placing the portion of the golf course property on the surplus property list. This hearing will be at the January 9, 2018, Council meeting.
    Since the original presentation on November 21 and the updates on December 5, Wasatch Educational, Provo Parks and Recreation, Provo City Administration, and East Bay Golf Course have refined the proposal to ensure a better balance between the development and the existing uses of the site.

    https://www.facebook.com/events/134770490544530/Information on this updated proposal can be found on Open City Hall as well as an opportunity to contribute your comments so they can be shared with Council members in preparation for the January 9 public hearing.
    An Open House is being held at the Provo Recreation Center on Thursday, January 4, from 6-8 pm to allow the public to ask questions and learn more details of the proposal
