April ended a week ago, but I’m just now getting around to a wrap up of my favorite posts. Deciding what to include was tough because I posted more times in April than in any previous month. However, here are a few posts that I suspect I’ll be returning to in the future.
Freedom Blvd: An Epic Fail: Freedom is a major street in Provo, but it suffers from a multitude of problems that undermine its potential.
Big Boxed: A Super Retailers a Wise Investment?: Massive retailers may not be the urban deus ex machina that many people think they are.

Provo Leads Utah Valley in Eco Stewardship: Green development is a key to any city’s future success. Provo has a long way to go, but this post discusses how it has made progress.
Everyone Should Love Provo’s Music Venues: Provo’s music venues aren’t just cool. They’re vital economic assets for the city.
New Guerrilla Art in the Joaquin Neighborhood: The first of many posts about Provo street artist Leuven.
