Citizens Agenda for Meetings on March 15, 2022

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: 

This meeting will be conducted both in person and virtually. The meeting will be available to the public for live broadcast and on-demand viewing on YouTube and Facebook at: and The in-person meeting will be held in the Council Chambers.

Work Meeting Agenda

12:00 pm, Tuesday, March 15, 2022

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 on the Fiscal Year 2022-2023 Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan. (22-016)

    • As part of the Fiscal Year 2022-2023 budget process, the Finance Division compiles the Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan that details the purpose of and dollar amounts involved for capital projects across the City.

  2. A presentation regarding the FY2023 Budget- Public Works (including Administration, Streets, Engineering, Water, Wastewater, etc.) (22-016)

    • In preparation for the drafting and approval of the FY 2022-2023 budget, each department has been asked to present to the Council. The information presented will inform future budget discussions.

  3. A discussion regarding the rezone of Provo City property from Single Family Residential (R1 8) to Open Space (OSPR). Lakewood North Neighborhood. (22-029)

    • Currently Provo City owns 4.2 acres of property located at 1433 S 400 West the property is directly south and contiguous to Lakewood Park.  On the eastern edge of the property are overhead power lines and directly southeast and contiguous to the property to a power distribution center. There has been a request by the neighborhood to rezone the property to OSPR. The rezone would allow the property to be used for future expansion of Lakewood Park.

Policy Items Referred from the Planning Commission

  1. Development Services requests a General Plan Amendment to clarify the existing Westside Development Policies and Future Land Use Map with a Southwest Plan Intent Statement. Citywide. PLGPA20210242

    • The west side of Provo is growing, and residents and City staff have collaborated over the last five years to establish design guidelines to direct future development. While in office, Councilor Harding requested that the Council adopt an intent statement that would (1) reaffirm their commitment to the Westside Development Policies (WDP) and Future Land Use map, (2) request assistance from the Planning Commission in drafting ordinances to accomplish WPD 3.a, (3) change the density of four units per acre from net to gross, and (4) clarify where WDP 3.a-d apply and give examples of desired development patterns. The Planning Commission has drafted a new intent statement that accomplishes these goals but focuses on a variety of lot and housing sizes rather than types.


  1. A discussion regarding redistricting adjustments to City Council District maps. (22-003)

    • Counties and some cities are also required to re-divide legislative areas based on the 2020 census data. Cities must complete any redistricting of municipal legislative areas within six months of the state's adoption of new maps; that deadline is in May 2022. Provo's new Municipal Council District map will be created using the 59 precincts outlined by Utah County with the new 2020 census data. 

    • In meetings earlier this year, the Provo Municipal Council voted to maintain the current Council makeup of 5 district elected seats and 2 at-large elected seats; however, new district boundaries will need to be drawn to accommodate population growths and shifts accounted for in the 2020 census data. For these Council areas, any redistricting will affect any election or mid-term vacancies after the ordinance is adopted.

    • The public has now submitted 120 potential new Council District maps. Staff has provided information on each of the maps and Councilors have submitted their top choices. The Council will select which maps will be placed on Open City Hall for public input. Selection of the final map is anticipated at the March 29 Council meeting.

Closed Meeting

  • Closed meetings (aka executive meetings) are held without the public present and must meet one of the conditions listed in Utah State Code (§ 52-4-204 and 52-4-205 et. seq.). If a closed meeting is needed, it will be announced at that time.

Action Agenda

  1. A resolution to approve a Real Estate Purchase Contract between Provo City Corporation and RD Development Holdings for the Sale of Property at approximately 1600 S 2500 E (Buckley Draw) for a Residential Development. (22-032)

  • On February 19, 2019, the Municipal Council approved Resolution 2019-12 which placed the city's property known as Buckley Draw (17.7 acres) on the Surplus Property List.  A condition of the resolution was that the Municipal Council would need to approve by resolution the terms of the real estate property contract.  On January 25, 2022, the administration executed a purchase contract with RD Development Holdings for the purchase of the Buckley Draw property.  The purchase price for the property will be $6,000,000.00 with the city accepting a $50,000.00 earnest money deposit as a down payment and a Note for $5,950,000.00 bearing a 0% per annum interest rate for a term of 18 months from closing.  The note would be secured with a Trust Deed, recorded against all units in the development.  The note will be paid off upon sale and closing of each secured unit with a payment at each closing of the unit's allocated portion of the overall purchase price for the land.  The City will grant a partial release of Note for each unit closed.

  1. A discussion regarding the Wastewater Collection System Master Plan Adoption. (22-030)

    • An updated Wastewater Collection System Master Plan was completed in November 2021. This plan provides an implementation plan for recommended improvements to resolve existing and projected future deficiencies in the Provo City wastewater collection system. This information was summarized for the Council in the February 15th Council Work Session.

  2. An ordinance amending Provo City code to modify and enact impact fees for wastewater and to modify provisions regarding the imposition and administration of impact fees. (22-020).

    • A Wastewater Impact Fee Facilities Plan has recently been completed and reviewed and administration recommends an increase in the Impact Fee. The new maximum allowable fee was presented in the February 15th 2022 Council Work Session. The change to the fees would be effective July 1, 2022.

  3. A resolution transferring $508,088 from the General Fund to the Airport Fund for an interfund loan payment to the Energy Fund, and appropriating $18,035 of that transfer in the Airport Fund for interfund loan interest. (22-031)

    • On April 21, 2020, the Municipal Council approved a resolution authorizing an interfund loan between the Airport and the Energy Fund for $4,900,526 to purchase land near the Airport.  The loan is for 10 years with a fixed principal payment of $490,053 and a variable interest rate equal to the monthly State Pool rate.  The loan was to be paid back with Airport revenues and if revenues were not sufficient a transfer would be made from the General Fund for all or a portion of the payment.  The Airport is currently being subsidized by the General Fund and not in a position to make all or a portion of the payment so Administration is recommending a transfer from the General Fund of $508,088 which includes interest of $18,035.

  4. An ordinance approving the petition to annex approximately 9.5 acres of property generally located at the intersection of Colorado Avenue, Bullock Lane, and 1860 South. East Bay Neighborhood. (PLANEX20210019)

    • The Council adopted the ordinance approving the petition to annex the subject property on March 30, 2021. This is coming back to the Council for a re-approval of sorts because of a procedural error.  When this was brought to the Council last time, an important document was not created (Notice of Impending Boundary Action). This document must be recorded along with the annexation plat to finish the annexation process. I am simply coming back to the Council, so we can reopen the annexation approval process, so I can create the necessary documents, so I can provide them to the Lieutenant Governor's Office and ultimately record them with the County.

  5. Development Services requests a General Plan Amendment to clarify the existing Westside Development Policies and Future Land Use Map with a Southwest Plan Intent Statement. Citywide. PLGPA20210242

    • This was item 4 on the work meeting agenda.

  6. **CONTINUED** An ordinance amending the zone map classification of approximately 33 acres of real property, generally located at 3701 W Center Street, from A1.10 to Airport Industrial (AI). Provo Bay Neighborhood. PLRZ20210263

    • This item was not ready to be heard.

  7. **CONTINUED** A request to change zone from R1.8 to CG for approx. one acre, MDR for approx. one acre, LDR for approx. 2 acres, and VLDR for approx. one acre, located at 2075 W Center Street. Provo Bay Neighborhood. PLRZ20210271

    • This item was not ready to be heard.


What do those numbers at the ends of the agenda items mean?

  • Items on the agenda are given a file number by Council staff or Community Development staff to help with tracking the item through the legislative process and to organize the supporting materials.

  • You may find it helpful in cases where an item may be worded a little differently on different agendas. Matching up that file number helps you see that it is the same issue.

Council meetings are broadcast live and available later on demand at
