The Provo City Pleasant View Neighborhood will meet with David Hunter and Silverado Building Company representatives concerning the proposed apartment building on the corner of Stadium Avenue and North Canyon Road on the 1.3 acre parcel purchased from the Utah Community Credit Union. The current proposal is a six floor building with 120 one bedroom apartments, 150 covered parking stalls, and an outdoor commons area. We have an opportunity as neighbors to hear from the developer and the developer has the opportunity to hear from the neighbors. In this meeting, we can share concerns and commendations with the developer - there is ample time to modify the proposal before becoming a formal proposal for action by Provo City. When the community and a developer find a common ground, the end result is better than the original ideas of the community or the developer.
Here are the public events that must happen before this proposed project can be permitted by Provo City.
1. Discuss the project in a neighborhood meeting. Tuesday 20 August and others as needed.
2. Amend the Provo City General Plan. The land use for the parcel is planned for commercial activities. A credit union is one of many possible commercial activities. In public meetings with full public participation (comments), the Provo City Planning Commission and then the Provo City Municipal Council would discuss the change to the Provo City General Plan. First, the Provo City Planning Commission would forward a recommended action to the Provo City Municipal Council. Then, in a separate set of public meetings, the Provo City Municipal Council would take legislative action denying the change or approving the change. No meetings scheduled to date.
3. Change the land use zone. The 1.3 acre parcel is currently zoned for use as public facility (PF). Hunter proposes to change the zone to campus mixed use (CMU). The campus mixed use zone allows for a mix of commercial and high density residential activities in a development. Hunter’s proposal does not include any commercial activity. In public meetings with full public participation (comments), the Provo City Planning Commission and then the Provo City Municipal Council would discuss the proposed zone change. First, the Provo City Planning Commission would forward a recommended action to the Provo City Municipal Council. Then, in a separate set of public meetings, the Provo City Municipal Council would take legislative action denying the change or approving the change. A zone change and a general plan amendment are often considered at the same time. No meetings scheduled to date.
4. Approve a project plan. The full set of plans including elevation/material/site plan/sewage, etc., will be heard by the Provo City Planning Commission in public meeting. The Provo City Planning Commission votes to approve or deny a project plan. No meeting scheduled to date.
