What are your thoughts on Provo's Neighborhood Program and how neighborhood input can be conveyed to City leaders?
Provo City has an official Neighborhood Program that is overseen by the City Council and managed by the Council office staff. The city is divided into 34 separate neighborhoods, with each neighborhood represented by a Neighborhood Chair and Vice-Chairs elected by the residents.
Each Provo neighborhood has a voice through their Neighborhood Chair to make the needs and concerns of the neighborhood known to the City. City departments and the City Council also provide Neighborhood Chairs with citywide information as well as updates that affect their neighborhood. The Neighborhood Program was created in 1968, with the city divided into 19 neighborhoods, to increase citizen engagement in the city planning process. Neighborhood committees were formed to advise what was then the City Commission.
Many years have gone by and Provo’s population has grown. Now there are 34 distinct neighborhoods in Provo and each has a Neighborhood Chair. With so much change happening in our city as well as improvements in technology, the City Council’s Neighborhood Advisory Board would like to assess the Neighborhood Program and determine what updates and improvements are needed for the future.
