Provo Parks and Recreation needs your help in identifying how to improve the Provo River Trail. We will be conducting a feasibility study and preparing construction documents for the widening and enhancement of the Provo River Parkway Trail from 2230 North to 2550 West. This will be the first project funded by Provo’s RAP tax!
Please join us at an Open House on Thursday, November 10th from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at the Provo Recreation Center (320 W 500 North) in the Multipurpose Room. We will introduce the project to the public and gather information and ideas about the corridor from residents that could be incorporated into the project including areas of concerns, ways the corridor could be improved, and opportunities for nodes and connections to surrounding areas.
The Open House will kick-off with an introduction and explanation of the project’s purpose and goals which include:
- Enhance the usability and capacity of the trail system
- Enhance the safety of the corridor
- Preserve and enhance the character of the corridor
- Facilitate maintenance and longevity of the trail system
After a quick introduction, attendees will break into 4 stations to view project maps and provide input about the corridor. Project representatives will be located at each station to talk to you about the project. There will be brainstorm boards available where you can add sticky notes with your concerns and ideas for the corridor related to the project purpose and goals.
An online survey has also been set up for the project where residents can provide input. There will be a station set up where you can go and complete the survey during the Open House or access it using your own computer or device at your own leisure. Please feel free to take the survey online here. Your feedback is important and will be used to determine how to best improve and enhance this section of the trail.
Light refreshments will be served.1
