Members of CUV stay in touch with Provo Mayor Michelle Kaufusi and Provo city officials to help guide the conversation on conservation easements in this canyon. CUV also partners with Utah Valley Trails Alliance (UVTA) and supports their master plan for the Provo Foothills (including South Fork) for trail improvements, correct/updated signage, improved and new trail access points, and the creation of potential new hike only/ bike only trail designations. Provo City council partners with UVTA and the forest service to support continued preservation of sensitive lands in the Provo foothills and canyons and to “support sustainable recreation on the trails of the southern Wasatch Mountains, especially ‘foothill’ trails in the wildland-urban interface. The trails master plan is an important part of the overall preservation of the South Fork area. See this 2018 Daily Universe article.
