Provo Women Making History - Planning Commission's Raleen Wahlin

Highlighting the women of Provo City as part of Women's History Month.

Provo City Planning Commission's Raleen Wahlin

Serving on the Provo City Planning Commission has allowed Raleen Beckham Wahlin to give back to this community - something her father, Ray Beckham, was passionate about. She loves sharing with people how he celebrated his 80th birthday by gifting the children of Provo a free day pass at the Provo Rec Center. She knows she has big shoes to fill.
Calling herself a true Provo girl, Commissioner Wahlin grew up going to Wasatch Elementary School, Farrer and Dixon Junior High Schools, Provo High School, and then on to BYU where she graduated with a Public Relations degree in Communications. She works in marketing, but her favorite job is being “Mimi” to her 13 grandchildren.
The Planning Commission consists of seven regular members and two alternate members who are Provo residents, appointed by the Mayor. The Planning Commission reviews and approves or disapproves project plans and decides on all applications for Conditional Use Permits, among other duties.
