Provo needs a detailed master plan that establishes zoning for development that can be supported by our already stretched resources. Our police department is currently understaffed, our water treatment plant and sewer system are in need of replacement, and our roads cannot currently accommodate a significant increase in traffic. We need to make a plan of what we want Provo to end up looking like and then stick to it. Stop granting zoning exceptions and start with the end in mind.
I don’t want Provo to end up looking and feeling like Vineyard. Increased high density housing will affect the quality of life in Provo. We need to carefully consider how much, and where we want to allow high density housing to be developed.
