What is a Referendum?
It is an initiative originated by a petition of citizens to offer the electorate an option to either accept or reject a proposal. (Utah’s Requirements)
Why a Referendum on Provo’s BRT?
Provo has been engaged in efforts to bring Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) to the area for over a decade. Multiple stakeholders, Mountainland Association of Governments (MAG), and Provo City Government have been working productively to bring this important infrastructure project to the area. Recently the Municipal Council voted against Route 4, the recommended route and offered additional optional routes for consideration. Unfortunately funding is at risk as there have been strong signals from UTA and MAG that only the route with the highest ridership and lowest cost would qualify for Federal Transportation Administration (FTA) funding of $75 Million and MAG match (see the pdf) match of $75 million. In light of this risk many in the community are trying to preserve a pathway forward to bring BRT to the community and support Route 4.
Our Commitment & Intent
- It is this group’s hope that the Council will continue to explore ways for this issue to be resolved in a productive way and we want to support that effort.
- In the event, that solution does not emerge we hope a measure of confidence emerges in the level of community support that a positive path forward and support for Route 4 is communicated.
- We are grateful for each Council member’s considerable effort to understand and learn about BRT’s advantages and design for our community. And we as a group are committed to forwarding a positive, respectful effort, as we work toward gathering support.
