Franklin Intermodal Study
Updated January 22, 2004
Provo City hired the planning firm of Fregonese Calthorpe Associates to conduct land use, zoning, transportation, and design studies of portions of the Franklin and Franklin South neighborhoods. An early draft of proposed urban design standards, published December 1999, and a subsequent Draft Intermodal Plan, published February 2002, sought to address:
- Identification of Neighborhood Goals
- Existing Conditions Survey (land use, ownership, property values etc)
- Areas for potential redevelopment based on current levels of investment
- Three alternative development plans for the study area including a preferred plan
- Based on Council direction, preparation of a Specific Plan for the area with implementation measures (zoning code amendments, architectural design standards, traffic calming measures, parking and density standards and recommendations to funding of public improvements)
Since this plan was published, the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) has acquired right-of-way that may not support an intermodal center at the location reflected in the Draft Intermodal Plan. The Provo City Redevelopment Agency and Community Development Department are coordinating a review of the capabilities of the plan to address needs for the area, possible changes in the plan area in response to UTA right-of-way acquisitions, and the steps needed to move forward with planning for an intermodal center and long-term development and redevelopment in the vicinity of a proposed intermodal center.
The public is invited to participate in the further development of these plans for the neighborhood through the comprehensive five-year update of the General Plan currently in public hearings with the Municipal Council. For additional information, please contact your neighborhood chair (neighborhood information is also available by calling 852-6137) or the Community Development Department Staff at 852-6400 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
