Provo City Center (Proposed)

Provo’s outgoing mayor John Curtis has championed the idea of replacing Provo’s current city center (built during the 1970s) with an expensive new one, which some estimate will cost about $59 million.  This price is about ⅔ what Novell spent in 2000 constructing its high-tech Building H, which some believe may hold the current record for Provo’s most costly building.  Certainly, Provo’s city government could use a headquarters, but let’s please ensure that it’s not overpriced—and, considering our city officers’ recent track record, we arguably have just cause for concern.
