Lakewood Neighborhood - What do you think about the proposed zone change from residential to open space, preservation, and recreation and public facilities zones for Lakewood Park?
Provo City residents are encouraged to provide input on new development within the city. We value our residents' opinion and ideas. Your input assists staff in ensuring that all viewpoints are heard and to make them aware of concerns as well as what residents see as a match to the City's vision.

1265 South 500 West
Provo City owns 4.2 acres of property located at 1433 South 400 West. This property is directly south and contiguous to Lakewood Park. On the eastern edge of the property are overhead power lines and directly southeast and contiguous to the property is a power distribution center. There has been a request by the Lakewood Neighborhood to rezone the property to the Open Space, Preservation, and Recreation (OSPR) zone. The rezone would allow the property to be used for future expansion of Lakewood Park.
The application requests approval of Zone Map amendments for 6.3 acres of property from the One-Family Residential (R1.8) zone to the Public Facilities (PF) and Open Space, Preservation, and Recreation (OSPR) zones. This property is located at 1265 South 500 West in the Lakewood Neighborhood. The parcels owned by Utah Power and Light/PacifiCorp would change from R1.8 to Public Facilities. The parcels owned by Provo City would change from R1.8 and Public Facilities to the Open Space, Preservation, and Recreation zone. This area was previously referred to as Powerline Park and is now known as Lakewood Park.
This was preliminarily reviewed by the Provo City Council in their March 15, 2022, work meeting. The application has been under review of various Provo City departments and is scheduled to be heard by the Planning Commission on April 27, 2022. Because it is a zone change, it will also need to be heard by the Provo City Council.
