Riverbottoms Neighborhood Meeting
- Date: 03/14/2017 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
- Location: Canyon Crest Elementary School
Dear Riverbottoms Neighbors,
I have arranged for a neighborhood meeting on Tuesday March 14, 2017 at 6-7 pm at Canyon Crest Elementary School at 4664 N Canyon Road, Provo, UT.
The purpose of the meeting is to review the PEG Development Proposal for the 9.39 acres on 4800 N and University Avenue. The PEG Development request is for three amendments to the PRO-R22 zone for the property. The first request is to allow apartment units on the property. The second request is to allow up to 28 units per acre; which is equal to Provo City’s Medium Density Residential (MDR) Zone which has a maximum of 30 units per acre. The third requested change would allow for a maximum height of 55 feet instead of the current 35 feet. The maximum height in an MDR Zone is 45 feet.
The Provo City Planning Commission meet on this request on Feb. 22nd and the result was a 3-3 vote resulting in a denial recommendation from the Planning Commission to the Provo City Council. The developers can take the project forward to the Provo City Council for approval or denial of their requested changes.
Your neighborhood representatives have talked with several of the members of the Planning Commission and other City leaders who have all praised the way that the neighborhood presented themselves at the meeting and expressed their concerns. They also mentioned that it would be good for the neighborhood to meet and provide the developers and the City recommendations that would be acceptable to the neighborhood for the development of the property.
This meeting will be that opportunity for us to come together and come up with some positive suggestions that can be presented to the developers and Provo City rather than just a negative vote against this development. Our neighborhood is a multi-mix neighborhood; we have single family homes, multi-family properties, retail business and commercial businesses, each group having an interest in the development of this property. I believe that by working together we can come up with positive ideas that are better than our own single-mindedness.
Please come and be a part of this discussion.
