A business owner along 500 west bought his business for and has owned it for 15 years. Then with this 156 million dollar project going on, the city booted him out of his own place without paying him for his losses. Is there a reason the city didn’t pay this owner for taking their business or for the time he had to close his business to renovate a new place since he was kicked out?

You need to make this much more public and allow the opposission to vote. I have done the survey and you have no way of knowing if i live here. This is not a sound way of getting a real poll done.

Arthur Jared inside Foothills February 10, 2020, 10:10 PM

In the Foothills neighborhood on E 450 N and N 1020 E the fire lanes need repainted and enforced. The current paint has almost all chipped away, so there are frequently cars parked in fire lanes. This creates hazardous driving conditions when visibility is block by cars parked in fire lanes at the E 450 N and N 1020 E intersection. The poor visibility is not just dangerous for drivers who cannot see oncoming traffic, but is also dangerous for the pedestrians and cyclists who cannot be seen by drivers. Additionally, blocking fire lanes is a liability for public safety in the case of a fire or medical emergency.

Does the city have a plan to improve these conditions?

Provo is a unique city, with unique values, I don't believe that brew/pub restaurants are necessary to increase tourism or a significant increase in conventions. If they are allowed at all, I believe that the zoning should have geographic limitations i.e. restrict it to the central downtown area. Conventioneers will not visit "ndighborhood restaurants" in the residential areas of the city. Let's keep Provo unique instead of trying to be a Salt Lake City. Unless there are more decent hotel rooms built downtown, we are not going to attract significant large attendance conventions. Does the "necessary to attract conventions" argument have sufficient substantive market research??
