Provo-Landscape Vision 2030 By the year 2016, the Vision 2030 Plan had been in use for six years and was in need of review and update. Additionally, the 2010 General Plan was in need of review and update as well.

Beginning in January or February of 2016, the Provo Municipal Council began discussions of how the Vision 2030 Plan and the General Plan should best be melded into one guiding document for policy direction within the City. It was determined that the goals and objectives contained within Chapter One of the General Plan would be combined with the goals and objectives from the Vision 2030 Plan and that the combination of these goals and objectives would become Chapter One of the updated General Plan. This updated Chapter One would be referred to as Vision 2050 as the goals and objectives have been amended to consider 30 years of additional growth within the City.

The updated Provo City Vision 2050 document is the fruit of that effort and purpose; to combine the General Plan and Vision 2030 into one, unified document.

100-South-SimNeighborhood Plans

Provo’s planning division has been tasked with developing neighborhood level plans throughout the city. The Vision 2030 process identified neighborhood planning as a key objective within Section 2: Land Use and Growth.

Objective 2.1.1 Identify exceptional areas that would benefit from area specific master plans, where the city would conduct a detailed land-use analysis. The objective is for a plan for every neighborhood.

Neighborhood Plans provide an opportunity for neighborhood residents and other stakeholders to participate with planning staff in envisioning the future. Provo’s many neighborhoods vary greatly in terms of age, visual character, demographic makeup and stability. The neighborhood planning process assesses each neighborhood’s characteristics, gleaning key insights from residents about strengths and weaknesses as well as desires for the future. Then together, planning staff and neighborhood stakeholders refine a vision for and a path to the future. Planning staff then applies their expertise and experience in drafting a plan to guide each neighborhood into this envisioned future.
