They would like to locate a stand in the Hurst parking lot through the summer until school starts. Next year they would like to sell produce until Labor Day weekend.

Mayor McArthur advised the City will issue a special event permit for a farmers market to any local farmer, certified by the local agent that the crops are grown in Washington County.

Leah Thompson advised their farm is a registered farm and they have the proper insurance required by the City.

Councilmember Bunker inquired if the trailer is pulled by a diesel or pick-up truck and where the trailer will be placed on the lot.

Mr. Thompson advised they have turned in a plot plan of the parking lot. The trailer is 8' x 24' and is pulled with a pickup truck. It will be placed as directed by Jason Hurst on the west end of the parking lot by Bluff Street. There will be a sign on the trailer facing Bluff Street that says Locally Grown Produce, Hurricane, Utah.

City Manager Gary Esplin advised that action needed is to allow the applicant to exceed the six days allowed under the ordinance for a special event permit. The permit will have to be renewed each year. Approval is also needed for use of the trailer.

Mr. Thompson clarified he would like to sell produce until the Saturday after school begins, Monday through Saturday.

Councilmember Nickle inquired if staff had concerns about the trailer.

PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE:
Public hearing to consider a request to rezone 1.37 acres from R-1-8 to PD Commercial for property located at the northwest corner of the intersection of Mesa Palms Drive and Tonaquint Drive. The Learning Center for Families, applicant.

City Planner Ray Snyder presented a map of the area and site plan. He advised the Learning Center for Families is a private not-for-profit school which provides special education for developmentally delayed infants and toddlers. It is a full-daycare program for children. The site is 1.3 acres. The building will not exceed 35' in height and will be two levels. He presented a rendering of the building and elevations. The building will have a concrete tile roof, synthetic stucco and cultured stone, all in earth tones. 24 parking spaces are required and 50 will be provided. Landscaping meets and exceeds City requirements, as do street trees. There will be a 6' block wall on the north property line. The applicant is requesting that a wall not be required on the west property line in-between it and the church. No negative input has been received and there were no public comments at the Planning Commission meeting. The Planning Commission supports the location and recommends approval subject to four conditions: (1) the site layout, colors and materials as provided; (2) the design of the rear of the building shall be modified to soften the building and avoid a large flat expanse, and incorporate covered porches on the rear doors in addition to installing four 4' pop-outs for the doors; (3) install a six foot (6') block wall on the north property line, however, a wall on the west property line is not required; and (4) the applicant shall use dark sky style lighting and a photometric plan shall be submitted to staff.

Greg Mathis with MRW Design advised that since the school is not a public school, a zone change was required. The PD Commercial zone is the best that could be found for a private school. The site is adjacent to a church which will be a great neighbor, so a fence is not desired in order to keep an open feel.

Councilmember Bunker inquired if the pop-outs in back had been addressed.

Mr. Mathis replied it has been agreed to put covered entries at the rear doors.

Councilmember Pike inquired about walls.

Mr. Mathis replied that the ordinance requires a wall along the north property line, and they would like to eliminate the wall on the west side between the Learning Center and the church.

Debbie Justice, representing the Learning Center for Families, explained the facility serves over 200 families. There will be building space for 32 full care medically fragile children and those with autism. The facility will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Councilmember Nickle inquired about overflow parking, and if this is the reason no wall is desired on the west side.

Mr. Mathis replied that the congruent layout works well and eliminated a driveway to Tonaquint. The project has almost double the parking required so the connections are more for access than shared parking.

Councilmember Nickle inquired if private bus service is provided.

Ms. Justice replied that private bus service is not provided. The facility has two company vans, but they are for staff, not children. This new facility will replace the one on Sunset.
She advised that the administrative office is in St. George and the centers in LaVerkin, etc. will remain as satellites.

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

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Bunker to approve the zone change by ordinance subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Pike.
VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows:

Councilmember Bunker - aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

PUBLIC HEARING/ADOPT BUDGET/RESOLUTION:
Public hearing to consider adoption of the 2010-2011 fiscal budget for the City of St. George.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained this is the second public hearing for the new budget which will begin July 1. It is recommended that a change be made to increase the projected anticipated revenue from property tax collections from $7 million to $7.4 million. There are no increases in taxes but an electric rate increase of 3% is recommended by the Water and Power Board.

Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing.

Ed Baca commended the City Council for staying within its budget and commented a 3% increase in electric rates now is easier to accept than a 10-20% increase later on. He inquired about the Spectrum article which states the City is contemplating lay-offs.

Mayor McArthur replied the City is restructuring as has been discussed for the last six months.

Mr. Baca requested reassurance that the new fire station in Sun River and truck and equipment will be paid for and adequately staffed.

Mayor McArthur replied this is all in the budget. Nine new positions have been approved to staff the fire station.

The Planning Commission recommended denial but the applicant would like it heard by the City Council. The Planning Commission recommended that public hearings be scheduled for July 1 to consider (1) a zone change to amend the PD zone of the Emerald Ridge Subdivision to allow the addition of a building lot in an unused portion of the development, and (2) an amendment to Title 10, Chapter 14, Section 22, Short Term Leases of Residential Properties.

HILLSIDE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT:
City Planner Ray Snyder advised the request is for a two track access road to a wireless site and a future water tank site on Little Black Mountain at the Utah-Arizona border. He displayed a vicinity map and zoning plan. The actual site is less than a 20% slope and is not subject to the hillside ordinance, but the access is routed 600' through areas over 20%. The cuts will be 4-6' maximum. The site will be accessible off the Southern Parkway through unincorporated areas of the County. The cellular tower site is located on a knoll with less than a 20% slope. The Hillside Review Board recommended approval subject to the following conditions: (1) approval is per the presentation and packet reviewed on site by the Hillside Review Board on May 19, 2010; (2) the applicant shall comply with the hillside roadway access plan as detailed in the April 28, 2010 letter; (3) the applicant shall follow the recommendations of the conceptual drainage letter dated May 4, 2010; (4) the applicant shall follow the recommendations of the preliminary geotechnical analysis/technical memorandum dated April 29, 2010; (5) minimize any scarring; (6) the roadway shall be earthen with aggregate rock laid down on it; (7) the roadway shall be armored with native rock from the site; (8) the road shall slope in towards the hillside to minimize visibility and the applicant shall demonstrate efforts to hide it and make the area appear as natural as possible.

Councilmember Almquist advised that the Hillside Review Board visited the site and the design work is as good as he has seen to get a two track road to a critical service site.
The recent co-location policy of the City will reduce the need for a proliferation of towers on the same site.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Almquist to approve the hillside development permit subject to the recommendations of the Hillside Review Board.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Nickle.
VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows:

Councilmember Almquist - aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT:
Consider approval of a conditional use permit to construct a three story office building to a height of 49'6" to the roof peak (45'3" to the midpoint of the roof) located near the northwest corner of 100 West Street and Tabernacle Street. Washington County, applicant.

City Planner Ray Snyder presented a vicinity map and site plan and advised that the County has purchased a storage rack system for the basement. The main intent of the basement is for storage. He presented elevations and renderings and advised the project will be a single phase development. It is located in a C-4 zone where setbacks are not required. The setbacks, however, on 100 West will be 22', the rear will be 15', the west side will be 10-20' and the north will have 125' to the property line. 90 parking spaces will be provided. The proposed landscaping meets and exceeds City requirements. The Planning Commission recommends approval with the colors and materials as proposed.

CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT:
Consider approval of a conditional use permit to construct a 100' tall monopole telecommunications tower with associated equipment shelter on property located within the Desert Canyons project which is located south of the replacement airport near the Utah-Arizona state line. Curt Gordon, applicant.

City Planner Ray Snyder explained the tower site is one acre. The applicant will locate four antennas on one pole. He presented a vicinity map, site map and scaled simulations. He advised that Verizon will be one of the providers. The applicant prefers a lattice tower but according to City Code, lattice towers are not permitted within residential zones unless the applicant can demonstrate otherwise. A galvanized monopole is proposed.

Mayor McArthur commented that he did not want to see a galvanized pole.

Mr. Snyder advised that the Planning Commission recommended approval. He then read the Planning Commissions findings.

Curt Gordon, representing the applicant, presented a power point presentation covering the proposed tower location, service maps, proposed sites A, B, C and D, access road, and cell tower complex. He advised they prefer a lattice tower as Little Black Mountain is the backdrop and a lattice tower can be seen through and is a better aesthetic approach.

City Manager Gary Esplin commented that depending on the setting, staff does not have a problem with a lattice tower as long as it blends in.

Mr. Gordon advised that the lattice tower will be a rust color.

Councilmember Almquist inquired if the structure below the pole would be an earth color.

Mr. Gordon replied that it will be an earth color.

St. George City Council Minutes
June 17, 2010

Councilmember Almquist inquired about the future use of property surrounding the tower.

Mr. Gordon replied that property above the tower is designated as an open space area.
Mayor McArthur suggested a zone change for this upper area from residential to open space.

Mr. Gordon replied that the area will not have homes on it or other development immediately around it other than the water tank.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to approve the conditional use permit with the addition of a rust color lattice tower and requiring that everything else be of earth-tone colors to blend in with the surroundings.

CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT:
Consider approval of a conditional use permit for a detached garage with a height of 20' to the roof peak located at 1297 E. Baneberry Drive in the Winegar Subdivision. Shawn Powell, applicant.

City Planner Craig Harvey explained that the garage has already been built and exceeds the allowable height of 15'. He presented a vicinity and zoning map. He advised that a detached garage exceeding 15' in height requires a conditional use permit. He presented an aerial map of the site and site plan. The applicant received permission from the JUC after the fact for the garage to be located over an easement. The Fire Department is okay with the access. The applicant will be required to get a building permit. He displayed examples of similar-use structures within the surrounding area. The Planning Commission felt the garage fit the area but suggested that the color of the garage doors be changed and stucco be added to the garage.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to approve the conditional use permit.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bunker.

Councilmember Almquist inquired if the applicant was limited in use of the garage structure.

Mr. Harvey replied use of the garage will be limited to RV parking only; there can be no residential use.

Councilmember Nickle inquired if the Bloomington Architectural Control Committee had been consulted.

Mr. Harvey replied that they had, but the Winegar Subdivision is not part of Bloomington and the Bloomington Architectural Control Committee has no say in the matter.

Gordon Eyer advised that he met with the Winegars and they do not have a problem with the garage and support it. He advised he lives across the street from the Powells and before they bought the lot, it was full of weeds.

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

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

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained the changes are the same as discussed in the work meeting. He then reviewed the changes. The Chamber requested that the Ironman event be substituted for one of the holiday periods allowed, which allows for a total of 110 days a year in which banners will be allowed.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman clarified that the number of days banners are allowed is 120 and could be more depending on the year.

Terri Draper advised that the Chamber businesses are appreciative of the Citys efforts, especially during this economic downturn. Should these changes pass the Chamber will continue to encourage the commitment of Chamber members to hold true to the policy. More than 50 businesses provided input on the changes.

Steve Davis, Rainbow Signs, advised that temporary signs are important and serve a big role in increasing business. He made a correction that there are only 12 holidays on the suggested list.

Councilmember Almquist commented that members of the public complain about sagging banners. He inquired of Mr. Davis if he suggested to his customers the use of rigid structures.

Mr. Davis replied that he did, but many of his customers do not want to pay for installation.


St. George City Council Minutes
June 17, 2010
Page Ten

City Manager Gary Esplin suggested a section be added that temporary signs or banners have to be installed with a rigid structure.

Mr. Davis replied that these banners are temporary in nature and not designed to be up for a long time.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman suggested that three poles be required instead of two in order to prevent sagging.

Mr. Davis replied that the banners are limited to 32 sq. ft.

Councilmember Bunker inquired about the cost of professional installation.

Mr. Davis replied it would be about $150 for the posts and installation.

Councilmember Pike suggested leaving a sleeve up for the post so that the banner can be easily installed each time it is allowed.

A lady in the audience suggested theses changes to the policy have been talked about for ten years and she suggested it be passed.

Councilmember Bunker inquired if it would be possible to eliminate one of the holidays.

Terri Draper advised that originally Chamber members requested 15 holidays and the businesses would like to have these top 11 holidays.
