Provo rezones downtown hoping to direct future development

Provo's Municipal Council changed and expanded downtown business zones Tuesday to create four new zoning districts that will facilitate long-term plans for refurbishing and upgrading the look of the west Center Street area. According to a city staff presentation, the downtown zoning revision has three major purposes: It is an integrated approach to development from the gateway to downtown; it serves as a way to plan for development instead of reacting to it coming; and it augments property potential without hindering current property use.
