Citizens Agenda for Meetings on December 15, 2020

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: 

Due to the risks of public gathering associated with the spread of COVID-19, these meetings will be conducted entirely via electronic means. For information on how to view the meetings and how to contribute public comments, visit our blog:


Work Meeting Agenda

12:00 pm, Tuesday, December 15, 2020

Work Meetings are designed to be a less formal venue for discussion among Council Members. Generally, no public input is taken during the meeting.


  1. A presentation from BYU regarding COVID-19 updates. (20-250)

    • Mike Roberts, the new Managing Director of Alumni and External Relations, will introduce himself and update the Council about BYU's fall status and winter plans for managing COVID-19.

  2. A discussion regarding Provo's parking policies and future growth. (20-247)

    • Provo's current approach to parking will likely not be sustainable in the future as Provo's population continues to grow. Community and Neighborhood Services Director Gary McGinn will address some of these concerns and opportunities.

  3. A presentation regarding the Economic Development's new approach to data analysis. (20-254)

    • The Council has expressed the desire for a more data-driven approach to economic development. The Economic Development Department has worked on this and just finalized a contract with a nationally recognized company, Buxton, to provide very rich data analysis and resources.
