Grandview Sign

There are some new additions to the Grandview South Neighborhood. Made possible with matching grants and service projects by many Grandview residents, the beautiful rock sign and benches are a great welcome to the neighborhood. One of the service projects was a cleanup of Lions Park that helped reduce the fire hazard of dead brush on the hillside.

Timp Storytelling Festival

The Timp Neighborhood has now held their annual Storytelling Festival for the second year in a row. It has been a great activity for people to come together and enjoy the talents of these local storytellers.

Scooter Questions

Now that the electric scooters have been in Provo for a little bit, you may have a few questions. One of the biggest questions has been about scooters parked improperly. You can either move the scooter to a better location (it will make noise while you're moving it) or you can call the phone number that is on the scooter itself to request having a Zagster employee move it. Click on the image below to watch a short video that answers many of the questions Provo City regularly gets.

Bicentennial Park Cleanup

The Provost South Neighborhood recently hosted a service activity to cleanup Bicentennial Park. The Provo Youth City Council joined with many others to clear brush and spruce up the park. Provo City's Parks and Recreation Department brought a trailer full of tools to help with the work.

Indian Hills Eagle Project

A Scout in the Indian Hills Neighborhood recently completed his Eagle Scout Project by cleaning up and making improvements to a popular trail that provides access to Timpview High School. Joshua Killpack organized over 100 volunteers who put in 195 service hours to complete the first stage of cleaning and hauling away garbage. Paving on the pathway has begun and the project should be completed soon.
