Provo Landscape Flood Information

Some parts of Provo are subject to periodic flooding and have been designated as Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHA) by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Provo City participates in FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). This program is designed to reduce the impact of flooding on both public and private structures. NFIP does this by providing affordable insurance as well as encouraging communities to adopt and enforce floodplain management regulations.

FEMA uses the best available technical date to create the flood hazard maps that outline our community’s flood risk areas. FEMA maintains and updates data through the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMS). Flood hazard mapping is an important part of NFIP, as it is the basis of the NFIP regulations and flood insurance requirements.

100 SouthNeighborhood Plans

Provo’s planning division has been tasked with developing neighborhood level plans throughout the city. The Vision 2030 process identified neighborhood planning as a key objective within Section 2: Land Use and Growth.

Objective 2.1.1 Identify exceptional areas that would benefit from area specific master plans, where the city would conduct a detailed land-use analysis. The objective is for a plan for every neighborhood.

Neighborhood Plans provide an opportunity for neighborhood residents and other stakeholders to participate with planning staff in envisioning the future. Provo’s many neighborhoods vary greatly in terms of age, visual character, demographic makeup and stability. The neighborhood planning process assesses each neighborhood’s characteristics, gleaning key insights from residents about strengths and weaknesses as well as desires for the future. Then together, planning staff and neighborhood stakeholders refine a vision for and a path to the future. Planning staff then applies their expertise and experience in drafting a plan to guide each neighborhood into this envisioned future.
