What will Provo’s biggest challenge be in 2017?
I think the biggest issue Provo will face in 2017 is residents buying into the “if we build it, they will come” mentality. I’m not saying who is right and who is wrong, but the simple fact is you have a city that is putting a lot of money into new roads (like the one going to the airport), BRT, a shiny new rec center, etc. These are investments the city needs to make in order to attract more growth. But you have the other side that sees the high costs and wonders if we should wait for the growth to happen first.
