Add protected bike lanes. Add sidewalks. Add a park or two.
High density is good around arterials like Geneva Road.

I agree with a lot of what has been said. I really wish Orem would quit trying to build so much high density housing and work harder on just improving what we have. Geneva road and the west side of Orem has a lot of potential. While Orem has done well to focus on family friendly parks, I do wish there was more focus on nice walk ways and landscaping. Many of these roads are way to scary to take a walk by!

Hopefully Geneva road can be planned to carry higher speed commuter traffic that is otherwise using neighborhood streets to travel North and South. Anything that helps preserve the viability of West side neighborhoods should be a priority.

I pretty much agree with the comments that have been made. I do believe that an additional Front runner station needs to accommodate the Vineyard area somewhere between 800 N. and 1600 N. Right now there is a large gap between the Orem (south) and the American Fork station.

I agree with other comments. Generous paths for pedestrians and bicyclists. Not just fast road cyclists, but buffered areas safe enough for families, children, non-driving teenagers to safely navigate the area on bike. If you want to encourage multi-modal transportation to cut down on traffic congestion, you need to provide safe spaces for the next generation to *learn* how biking can be a viable option. If it feels too dangerous, parents will discourage it and everyone will be in cars and the roads will be further congested.

Add an additional park something with Open Soccer Fields with Nets, Open Baseball/Softball Fields, Something with a designation for Dogs that they can run free. Firepits or BBQ and tables.

Geneva road has so much potential in decreasing congestion in Utah County. It can also serve as a great connector from AF through Provo. It does however need to provide pedestrian and bicycle access. Current shoulders are dangerous and in poor repair for cyclists and there is little to no means for pedestrians to utilize it as a transportation corridor. There are many parts along Geneva road that are very suitable for widening and can provide relief from I15 congestion but also needs to incorporate all users, not just vehicles.

Anticipate continued growth and make this artery wide enough to accommodate the increased traffic or being used as an alternate when freeway is backed up. It should also be planned out better than State Street with some CCRs so the look and feel are not cluster of odd angles and poor design. I also agree that high density (while I'm sure quite profitable for developers) is not desired. There's more than enough already available or in progress, and there are other outlying communities that can build these solutions at a better price point for the consumer. Please stop allowing ever increasing numbers without first improving the infrastructure.

Recently Orem has been aggressively building high density high rise housing. Please don't rezone Geneva road for more of that. We have plenty and Vineyard is also providing plenty more close enough. If Orem is to have any industry then this Geneva corridor needs to maintain proper zoning for it. If improving Geneva road itself is part of this plan, then don't make the mistake we are now seeing on I15. i.e. don't widen part and leave a constriction area that impedes traffic anyway. And since Geneva is being called the front door from Vineyard into Orem, then it ought to look nice, and probably have Vineyard help make this happen.
