Meet Mayor Curtis

There is so much to do in Provo. Growing up, I always thought of Provo as a memorable place. As mayor, I want to make sure it continues to be a place where children and adults feel safe, and a place that meets the needs of all of its residents with continued economic development and great public services.

In order to do that, I want to be accessible to residents. Your concerns are my concerns. There are many ways you can contact me:

  • By phone at Main Office - (801) 852-6108 and Mobile - (801) 362-0015.
  • By email at
  • By mail to Provo City Mayor's Office, 351 W Center St, Provo, UT 84601.
  • By visiting the Mayor's Office. Call (801) 852-6108 to schedule an appointment.

Please contact me in whatever way is most convenient to you. And of course, if you see me out in public, feel free to share what's on your mind. I look forward to serving you as Mayor of Provo.


Provo Mayor John R. Curtis began his second term in January 2014. During his first four years the City of Provo ranked #1 in the nation for business and careers by Forbes as well as #1 for well-being by Gallop. The City has also received national recognition for quality of life, family environment, a rising tech and entrepreneurial culture, along with a vibrant downtown.  With the help of the City Council, employees and residents, Mayor Curtis’ administration has brought Google Fiber to Provo, regularly scheduled air service at the airport, expanded parks and trails, and completed Provo's state-of-the-art recreation center.

John is known for his accessibility and staying close to the residents of Provo. His cell phone number is listed on the City website and he reads and personally responds to the hundreds of email messages sent to him each day. He enjoys social media and his blog, is referred to as a gotta-read-it-to-believe-it place to find news on all things Provo. It has steadily grown in popularity and reaches thousands of Provo residents each day.

On weekends John can often be seen at one of his kids' soccer games or attempting the daunting task of beating his wife at tennis. He enjoys a good laugh, solving hard problems, and showing off his sock collection.
