Gerald Smith is returning to Aspen Elementary School. But this time he's going back as the principal. Smith, an assistant principal at Orchard Elementary, taught for five years at the Orem school before moving to Orchard. He has been an educator since 1976."We are extremely fortunate to have someone of Gerald's experience and dedication accept the important role of principal," said Gary Seastrand, assistant Alpine superintendent. "He is student-centered and works diligently to promote the best interests of children."


The City Council has adopted a comprehensive ordinance for open-space requirements and development standards.

The new code grew out of the council's attempt to slow residential growth on the west side and preserve green space. City officials said the concept will enable Provo to move away from "cookie cutter" subdivisions that continue to consume remaining undeveloped land citywide.


A request to rezone 12.46 acres to allow a residential subdivision was tabled for the third time Tuesday. The City Council still isn't satisfied with the information developer Greg Tidwell and Taylor Homes provided regarding fencing and landscaping for the planned unit development.

Councilman Sherman Huff indicated the council would approve the request if it could get an architectural rendering of the landscaping along 2550 East and a "clear definition" of the block wall that will be built along Canyon Road and around a power substation next to the planned project.
