Area Five is bounded on the west and south by existing Provo City limits, and on the east by the Uinta
National Forest boundary. Existing water pressure zones can serve this area to an elevation of
approximately 4,876 feet. Area Five can be served by gravity wastewater systems, but main lines would

the Critical Hillside Overlay (CH) Zone. The General Plan calls for residential development in a portion of
this area; however, any property identified as Agriculture on the map should be included in the OSPR

would be subject to the requirements of the Critical Hillside Overlay Zone.

this area should be included in the OSPR zone, however, properties to remain in agricultural production
may annex with agricultural zoning. Any future development project requiring a rezone from the OSPR
zone would be required to demonstrate a substantial benefit to the city and would be subject to the
requirements of the Critical Hillside Overlay Zone. Area Six should consist of property that is owned by
