Riverbottoms Neighborhood Meeting

  • Date: 04/16/2019 6:00 PM  
  • Location: Canyon Crest Elementary School

Dear Riverbottoms Neighbors,

There will be a neighborhood meeting on Tuesday April 16, 2019 at Canyon Crest Elementary at 6 pm to discuss two developments.


The first proposal is a commercial building at 3765 University Ave (this is the commercial lot just north of Jiffy Lube).  The proposal is for a professional office building on the site as was originally planned when the site was presented for the Jiffy Lube, townhomes and commercial office building.  The proposed development is the Cameron Office Building by Bruce Cameron.  I have attached current site plans and proposed plans for the building.  Mr. Cameron and his architect will be present to discuss the proposal and answer questions.


The second proposal is from Dan LaFontaine for 8 townhomes to be built on 3900 N just to the east of his current residence.  He is proposing a zone change from the current zone of R110 (single family dwelling) to LDR (which allows up to a maximum of 8 townhomes per half acre) to accommodate this development.  I have also attached a site plan for this proposal.  Dan will present more details for his development along with proposed sketches for the townhomes.


We look forward to seeing you at this meeting.  Our neighborhood meetings provide an opportunity to ask questions of developers and to let our Provo City leaders know how we feel about these proposals.  Thank you for taking time to participate in these events.
