SET PUBLIC HEARINGS:
Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held April 13, 2010, recommended that public hearings be scheduled for May 6, 2010 to consider (1) a zone change request to rezone all of Block 30, Plat B, St. George City Survey from R-1-C to RCC, and (2) a zone change request at 1443 Fairway Road from OS to R-1-10.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Almquist to schedule the public hearings as recommended.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Pike.
VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows:

Councilmember Almquist - aye
Councilmember Pike - aye
Councilmember Shakespeare - aye
Councilmember Nickle - aye
Councilmember Bunker - aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

FINAL PLAT:
Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained the Planning Commission recommended approval of the final plat for the Springs Pasture located west of the Springs Estates, east of the Virgin River and north of 1450 South in the Open Space zone. This land has been used for pasture for many years. The proposal is to divide the pasture into individual ownership parcels. 100% of the pasture is in the flood plain and half of it is in the floodway. The applicant has also requested waiver of the HCP fees since no development will be allowed. This is what makes the difference from other plats. The individual parcels will be sold to other property owners within the Springs, but he was not sure if they are adjacent property owners.

Councilmember Almquist inquired if the City is liable for any structures which presently exist in the pasture area.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman replied that structures are restricted in the pasture area and there is no liability on the City in any event.

City Manager Gary Esplin inquired if there was a requirement that adjacent property owners had to purchase the pasture parcels.

Mr. Nicholson replied there are currently fences which divide the pasture area and four horses per acre are allowed. The Open Space zone is more restrictive as far as the number of animals than the agriculture zones.

Mr. Guzman advised that shelters for animals are allowed.

Mr. Nicholson advised that most of the pasture parcels will be sold to adjacent property owners.

Mr. Guzman advised that the parcels could then be sold to someone else.

Mayor McArthur commented that while this was true, the land can only be used for pasture.

Mr. Nicholson advised that the use of the land will not change, just the ownership. The parcels are now fenced off the way they are proposing to carve them up.

Jay Sandberg advised that the final plat process is the best way of dividing the pasture because the restrictions will show up on the plat and title report. He advised the only access to the parcels is off the cul-de-sac at the south end. He advised there is an association for the pasture.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to approve the final plat and waive the HCP fee.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist.
VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows:

Councilmember Pike - aye
Councilmember Almquist - aye
Councilmember Shakespeare - aye
Councilmember Nickle - aye
Councilmember Bunker - aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

PRELIMINARY PLAT:
Jay Sandberg explained the applicant, Travis Wells, is requesting permission to subdivide a 5.469 acre parcel into four large residential lots for Wells Acres. One large lot will be for a home with the other three lots for future homes. Roadways in the area are now dedicated. The applicant will sign a development agreement to build a road in the future when roads are built in that area. There is no sewer in the area. The applicant will sign a waiver to participate in the sewer in the future. The development agreement will run with the land and a separate agreement will be made for each parcel.

City Manager Gary Esplin inquired what would happen if one of the lot owner wants to build his or her house and improve the frontage, and the other does not want to build. He inquired if the first owner have to build the entire roadway to his or her house.

Mr. Sandberg replied that at any time and for any reason the City wants the improvements put in, the lot owners will have to do so. The City can trigger the frontage improvements.

Mr. Esplin commented that no bond is being required.

Mr. Sandbery replied this was correct, but there will be a lien on the property.

Mr. Esplin expressed concern about future liability if for instance the lot owners do not want to improve the frontage and the City then has to.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised in that event the City may not recoup its costs for a long time. He advised that generally if one property owner builds, they would all be required to improve the frontages.

Mr. Esplin suggested it would be better to have an agreement that upon sale of the lots, the owners are responsible to put in the improvements at the time of sale.

Mr. Guzman suggested the improvements could be triggered by the first building permit.

Mr. Esplin suggested the applicant be allowed to go forward with the first building permit but the matter should be brought back for discussion on the actual subdivision of the three lots and how the improvements will be put in. He suggested the matter be continued until the next meeting, but the applicant be allowed to get a building permit.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to continue the matter until the next meeting.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bunker.
VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows:

Councilmember Pike - aye
Councilmember Bunker - aye
Councilmember Almquist - aye
Councilmember Nickle - aye
Councilmember Shakespeare - aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT:
Consider a request for a conditional use permit for a gym for various recreational activities at 520 North 3050 East in an M-2 zone. Eddie Smith, applicant.

This item was withdrawn from the agenda.

APPEAL OF SHADE TREE BOARD DECISION:
Consider an appeal of the Shade Tree Board decision regarding the removal of pecan trees in the City right-of-way. Sam Schmutz, applicant.

City Manager Gary Esplin commented the Shade Tree Board recommended denial of the applicants request to remove pecan trees, and the applicant has appealed this decision to the City Council.

Sam Schmutz, applicant, advised he owns the lots at 230 South 100 East and 229 South 100 East. The lots are narrow and long and he would like to build a twin home on them. He stated he would like to park cars out front and not worry about the pecan trees dripping on them. His father planted the trees when he was 10 years old, but he would like to change the look of the lots and beautify the block. The home is run down and is an eyesore at this time. He plans to spend $600,000 in new construction of the twin home and would like to replace the pecan trees with four new trees. He is leaning toward the Raywood Ash or Flowering Plum. He stated that while the Shade Tree Boards duty is to protect trees, there should be a shared partnership between the landowner and the City to try and beautify the area. He stated he would put in trees as big as he could get them.

Councilmember Almquist advised that in the Shade Tree Board meeting Mr. Schmutz mentioned he would like to put in Flowering Pears, not Flowering Plums. Flowering Plums are messy. The Flowering Pear is on the alternate street tree list as it has not been proven to be a quality street tree, but they could be put in in conjunction with other trees that do meet the ordinance, like the Raywood Ash. He suggested that Parks and Streets could make the recommendation as to what type of tree to put in as they will be the ones caring for them.

City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the partnership issue is key. The downtown area needs more property owners who are full time residents who take pride in their frontage, even though they have no obligation to take care of the 15' strip. He stated that shade trees were needed to provide shade for the walkways.

Mayor McArthur commented that pecan trees do drip and can ruin the paint on a car. He stated it made good sense for the applicant to replace the pecan trees with large size trees that can immediately create shade.

Councilmember Bunker inquired of Mr. Schmutz if he told the Shade Tree Board he would replace the trees.

Mr. Schmutz replied that he told them he would remove the three pecan trees and replace them with four trees, and he would be completely open as to what type of trees they were, as long as they were not messy.

Councilmember Pike inquired of Councilmember Almquist if the Shade Tree Board was concerned about setting a precedent by removing the pecan trees, and if it would be possible to specify what caliper of tree should be required for replacement.

Councilmember Almquist replied the City has the responsibility to determine the quality and health of trees in its frontages. There is an ongoing program in the downtown area to replace trees. It was suggested in the Shade Tree Board meeting that with trimming and care the dripping problem could be minimized, but this was not acceptable to Mr. Schmutz. Replacing trees in collaboration with the City is good, however, it should be noted that once these three trees are removed, there will only be one large tree left on that side of the street. He advised that the neighbor to the south of Mr. Schmutz removed street trees without permission from the City and has not replaced them. He suggested that perhaps Mr. Schmutz could convince this neighbor to replace the trees to help beautify the street. He inquired of Mr. Schmutz if he was willing to remove the pecan trees himself.

Mr. Schmutz replied he would do so when the houses are taken down.

Mayor McArthur commented that shade trees should have useable shade.

Councilmember Almquist commented that Mr. Schmutz also mentioned that he would like to keep the wood from the trees, as the City does not burn wood.

Mr. Schmutz inquired if the City would be willing to grind the stumps.

Councilmember Almquist replied that the City would grind the stumps.

Councilmember Shakespeare advised that she agreed with the request, and that not only the age of the tree should be looked at but the quality of the tree and the quality of life of the people who use the trees. In this case, the trees do not add to the quality of life of the homeowners.

Councilmember Nickle advised that wood is sold at the reuse center.

Larry Shane advised that the branches can be taken to the Reuse Center. The City does burn wood on First Night in barrels.

Councilmember Almquist commented that for the record, this request is special as the items that couch this request make it different from other street tree issues. These trees have special characteristics that make them less desirable as street trees. Other street trees provide good shade and no precedent is being set.

Councilmember Nickle commented that this decision will make all pecan trees a target.

Councilmember Almquist replied that while this was true, they will not all necessarily be removed tomorrow.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Shakespeare to approve the request to remove three pecan trees and replace them with four shade trees on the Citys shade tree list with as large a caliper as the applicant can get.

Councilmember Almquist commented that the applicant can get a 4" caliper.

AMENDED MOTION: Councilmember Shakespeare agreed to include in her motion the provision that the pecan trees be replaced with four 4" caliper shade trees on the Citys shade tree list.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bunker.
VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows:

Councilmember Shakespeare - aye
Councilmember Bunker - aye
Councilmember Nickle - aye
Councilmember Almquist - aye
Councilmember Pike - aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

Mayor McArthur invited several students in the audience to introduce themselves.

PUBLIC HEARING/ACTION PLAN/CDBG PROGRAM:
Public hearing to consider approval of the proposed Annual Action Plan for FY 2010-2011 under the Community Development Block Grant program.

David Bates advised that the City will receive over $500,000 in CDBG funds. The City Council, on February 4, 2010, voted on the items to be funded, and approval is now needed to submit the action plan to the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The action plan is a budget of how the City will spend the money.

Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing.

City Manager Gary Esplin advised the City Council previously recommended allocation of the funding as follows:

$47,465 for the 1600 North Street water improvement project
$15,374 to install ADA sidewalk ramps on Valley View Drive
$7,161 for Turn Community Services day center fire warning system
$79,234 for the Family Support Center child care center acquisition
$273,348 for the Down Payment Assistance program
$105,645 for CDBG administration

Mayor McArthur reopened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing.

City Manager Gary Esplin advised that the final amount received is $528,227. These funds must be used to benefit low and moderate income persons. No matching funds are required. These are federal funds through the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Interested entities must go through an application process. David Bates conducts meetings with interested parties, applications are submitted and reviewed and then the City Council votes on which projects to fund.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Bunker to approve the CDBG annual action plan.

REQUEST TO PLACE DONATION BINS:
Consider approval of a request to place donation bins at the Bloomington Park. Big Brothers/Big Sisters, applicant.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained the Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization will receive funds from the materials placed in the binnies.

Mayor McArthur advised that the binnies have already been placed there.

Larry Shane commented they are in a good location. He advised that the Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization is helping to improve the playground with the funds raised from the binnies.

City Manager Gary Esplin expressed concern about setting a precedent and diluting the amount received from the Solid Waste binnies.

Mayor McArthur advised that the Big Brothers/Big Sisters binnies are for clothing only and do not compete with the Solid Waste binnies. There is just one binnie at the Bloomington Park and no problems with people leaving other things outside the binnie have been encountered.

City Manager Gary Esplin suggested approval on a month-to-month basis so if there is a problem the binnie can be removed.

SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist.

Consider approval of a Federal Aid Agreement to design the Red Hills Parkway/Bluff Street Interchange.

Cameron Cutler explained that not all the funding has been received for this item and the next on the agenda. This funding is just enough to begin the design process. The interchange will come later depending on funding. The interchange has a match of 20%. The Red Hills Parkway maximum match will be 20%.

City Manager Gary Esplin advised the match will be taken from the Transportation Fund.

Public Works Director Larry Bulloch advised that impact fees will be used.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to approve the agreement.

VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows:

Councilmember Almquist - aye
Councilmember Nickle - aye
Councilmember Pike - aye
Councilmember Shakespeare - aye
Councilmember Bunker - aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

APPROVAL OF MOU:
Consider approval of a MOU with the FAA to operate and maintain the VOR/DME at the Replacement Airport.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the FAA will own the VOR/DME but the City will operate and maintain it.

Mr. Esplin explained that VOR is a radar navigational aid.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Bunker to approve the MOU.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist.
VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows:

Councilmember Bunker - aye
Councilmember Almquist - aye
Councilmember Pike - aye
Councilmember Shakespeare - aye
Councilmember Nickle - aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

APPROVAL OF AGREEMENT:
Consider approval of an agreement with Questar Gas for service at the Replacement Airport.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained the FAA is willing to participate in gas service to the airport if the City can show where it will use the natural gas. There is currently no capacity at the terminal building for natural gas, but by doing a few small changes to use the gas, the FAA will help with the cost. The total cost is $324,392.30. The FAA will contribute $199,775.55 and the Citys portion will be $124,617. This is an add-on to the Citys match, and funding will have to be found. To not plan for natural gas at the airport would be shortsighted. The FAA will not participate if the project benefits private property owners.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to approve the agreement.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that the agreement has not yet been drafted and he requested that approval be made subject to legal approval.

VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows:

Councilmember Pike - aye
Councilmember Almquist - aye
Councilmember Nickle - aye
Councilmember Shakespeare - aye
Councilmember Bunker - aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

Consider approval of a change order for stone for the Replacement Airport terminal building facade.


St. George City Council Minutes
April 15, 2010
Page Nine

City Manager Gary Esplin recommended use of quarried sandstone for all rock application at the terminal. This stone was removed earlier to save money, but since there are additional revenues, it will be better to have real sandstone rather than fake sandstone.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to approve the change order in the amount of $98,200.44.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist.
VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows:

Councilmember Pike - aye
Councilmember Almquist - aye
Councilmember Nickle - aye
Councilmember Shakespeare - aye
Councilmember Bunker - aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

APPROVAL TO SUBMIT GRANT APPLICATION:
Consider approval to submit a State Trails Grant application for funding to design and construct the next leg of the Virgin River South C trail.

Laura Taylor explained this leg of trail was shown in the 2006 trails master plan and is part of an agreement with Sun River developers who gave the City some trail easements and park land. The City has been awarded a matching grant of $180,000. The Citys portion is $75,000. The proposed layout is on top of the NRCS dike.

Councilmember Almquist inquired about the top three segments the City is trying to complete.

Ms. Taylor replied the highest priority segment connects the Santa Clara River trail to the Virgin River. They are beginning preplanning for the connection between the Cottonwood Cove Park and Mathis Park.

City Manager Gary Esplin advised the City is ready to close on the Sheffield property with an exchange of rights-of-way. Mr. Sheffield is giving the City a trail easement underneath the river bridge all along his frontage.

Ms. Taylor advised another big priority is along Red Hills Parkway on the south side and along the Red Hill edge as part of the widening project.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Almquist to approve the grant application up to $180,000.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Shakespeare.
