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.

A discussion regarding the Timp-Kiwanis (Bounous) Park Land Water Conservation Fund conversion and the surplus of the property. (18-018)
- 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.
