Electronic Meetings

Health concerns in light of the COVID-19 pandemic have led to limits on public gatherings. Provo City information on this can be found at We are continuing to hold hearings so we can conduct essential business. Adjustments have been made to respect Governor Herbert’s recommendations, while still providing community participation in our hearings. Executive Order 2020-01 waives the requirement for anchor location and some other requirements for public meetings/noticing. There will be no physical location for the meeting. Board and commission members, staff, and presenters will be participating from their individual locations electronically.
