Do you live in Provo? Yes
In your experience, are there issues with crowded parking in Provo?
How much should cost recovery or subsidization be part of more parking enforcement?
Rate your support of the concept of paid parking as a mitigation tool against crowded on-street parking?
How important are these factors in a parking management program?
Do you have any other comments about this proposal? The problem is that we have way too many residents to parking spaces. Making people pay is hard on residents of condos and such (where the problems are) because they simply don’t have another place to park. Parking structures or requiring complexes to have adequate parking would do more to solve the actual problem

Do you have any other comments about this proposal? A parking fee will turn Provo into what everyone in the world hates about cities. Yes Provo has overcrowded parking in some areas. There’s no doubt about that. However, a parking fee will only impact poor college students. I hope that is something that you call care about on the City Council. The parking issue is not the fault of Provo’s citizens. It’s the fault of poor city planning and it’s a problem that won’t go away. We learn to live with it. A fee will only make things more complicated and people more upset

Do you have any other comments about this proposal? I am so grateful to benevolent Provo city for having subsidized my parking. I owe all my allegiance to thee. ;) Taxes that all of us pay, either directly through home ownership or indirectly through rent passed through landlords has paid for the streets that we park on, and now you want to make us pay again. Sure there is a problem with parking in some areas. Don’t make my life more burdensome by putting a program in place that nobody wants. Who are you representing? Did you read the open town hall survey results from last spring about the proposed parking program? The residents of neighborhoods clearly don’t want this. Why does the city council persist in pushing it upon us? Please vote no!

Which Provo neighborhood do you live in? Wasatch
How often do you ride the UVX line? Never
Would a new UVX stop on 900 East make your commute harder or easier? Easier
Why would a new UVX stop on 900 East make your commute harder or easier? My child takes Frontrunner up to the University of Utah a couple of times a week. Having a stop on 900 East would make it a lot easier for her to get to the train station.
Would you oppose or favor a new UVX station on 900 East near BYU and north of Wasatch Elementary? Favor
Why do you oppose or favor a new station? I would love to be able to take UVX to downtown Provo on the weekends to avoid searching for parking. It will make my daughter’s commute easier. And, it will make it easier for BYU students to get around without a car—which will help with parking issues, air quality, and traffic.
Regarding a proposed new UVX station on 900 East near BYU and Wasatch Elementary, what message of concern or support would you want to share with elected officials? The current UVX stops seem well-maintained and safe, so I am not too concerned about the UVX stop’s proximity to Wasatch Elementary. However, I would prefer the UVX stop to be just north of Birch to keep it a little separated from Wasatch Elementary.
What factors relative to a UVX station on 900 East influence your decision of support of opposition? I’m excited about the possibility of a UVX stop on 900 East. It will make it easier for my family to use public transportation, and it will be a benefit to BYU students and our neighborhood.

Do you have any other comments about this proposal? Speaking as someone that lives in Provo and has a car, I am not provided with a parking spot at the apartments that I live in. I am required to use street parking all the time. I do not appreciate the idea of needing to pay for street parking. I think that it adds a cost that seems unnecessary to me. I think a more worthwhile solution to this obvious problem of there being very limited parking in Provo is to create more parking. Our issue with lack of parking does not get fixed by charging people to park. There are still the same amount of people that will need to park no matter what. We really need more places where people can park.

Do you have any other comments about this proposal? Many people living in our area cannot afford paying for the parking they need. If you charge one area the problem is only going to move around. Creating more parking would be so much more beneficial, and from the number of old, rundown, abandoned buildings in our area, it feels like there are spaces to convert.
