I have been hearing a lot of rumors about underground tunnels in Provo City. Are these real or just something people are making up? If Provo does have an underground tunnel system, why aren't we letting residents use it, especially during the hot summer months?

The way I understand things from speaking with staff and from the neighborhood meeting held on this project.
If this project is built before the parallel trunk line is installed, fill dirt would need to be brought in, I believe it is around 7 feet in height at the furthest point, inorder to achieve gravity flow to the sewer. This will create an artificial hill and could create potential issues for everything around it because it WILL NOT be built this high even to achieve building up for the flood plain. This is because the existing trunk line is very shallow only about 4 feet deep. The new trunk line will be deeper allowing for better gravity flow.
If this project waits to build after the trunk line is installed there will be zero build up.
Even though the lot sizes in this plan meet our vision in our masterplan, the height increase and the possible issues to future development is reason for me to ask that this property NOT be allowed to develop at this time. Instead, I ask that it wait until the parrelle trunk line is in place to allow any development to move forward on this property.
1600 west from 600 south to 1150 south is currently very narrow. This section of street is NOT in any of our current plans for widening. Multiple concerns have been raised by residents, the Sunset Neighborhood Chair and myself about this issue. This section of road has a significant traffic increase during softball season where it is a main artery for traffic to Foot Printers Park. Before adding additional traffic to a street that can barely handle 2 vehicles at one time, I would like to see plans for widening this road.
Also, there is NOT a complete sidewalk along this street. Children from the development would be required to walk to Sunset View Elementary located at 1600 west and 600 south. Where this section of 1600 west is very narrow, this is another reason I would like to see widening of this section before any additional homes are owner occupied.

If someone wants to park their boat or trailer on their private property, they should be able to. Plain and simple. If it's an eye-sore maybe the neighbors should talk to them about it instead of the government dictating what can or cannot be parked on private property. If they are on the road, that is another issue. But being parked on private property should not be an issue.

I've grown up just west of the proposed development for the entirety of my life. I see no issue with moving this zone change to allow townhomes. There are town homes directly to the south. Why shouldn't this developer be allowed to put town homes on his lot? I'm all for it.

Great idea! We need more student housing around BYU campus. Let's get this sucker re-zoned!

As much as I wish that this land would stay farm land, I don't see any issue with changing the zoning. There are single family homes all around, so this seems to fit with the overall neighborhood.

Yes, this is a fantastic idea! We need more affordable housing options in Provo. Apartments are becoming impossible for young people to afford. The current owners sound committed to keeping the place drug- and crime-free, which will be a vast improvement from the motel that was running before. Please approve this!

The concrete sidewalk slabs along 7 Peaks Blvd north from Center St have become tripping hazards due to some slabs being uprooted by nearby trees. Are there any plans to remedy the issue in the near future?

I think this is a great idea. I think that this space would be great for some single family homes and would really increase the desirability to live in this part of Provo. As a resident of this area, I strongly agree with this rezoning proposal and ask the City Council to approve it.

I would really appreciate if there was parking available within the lot for both residencies.
