St. George City Council Minutes

Community Development Project Coordinator Bob Nicholson explained that the request is for three buildings in a mixed-use project, called Joule Plaza, to have heights ranging from 54' to 50' located between 200 West and 300 West on the south side of Tabernacle Street in a C-4 zone. The main building on Tabernacle Street will be up to 54' to roof peak while the two interior buildings, located to the rear of the main building, would have heights of approximately 50'.

BUILDING DESIGN CONCEPTUAL SITE PLAN:
Mr. Nicholson stated that the applicant has requested approvals for the building design, conceptual site plan, residential density, a parking ratio of 1.5 parking spaces per residential unit and a waiver for guest parking. He presented a PowerPoint presentation containing photo simulations of the proposed project and parking requirement comparisons. Additionally, he presented a video showing a 360° view of the proposed development. Included in the staff report for the conditional use permit, is a listing of buildings in the area, that have comparable roof heights. Findings include aesthetics and height. Planning Commission recommends approval of the conditional use permit for the height. Density is proposed to be 129 apartment units on 3.9 acres which equals the density of 33 dwelling units per acre. Quite a bit of time was spent on building design. He showed the Councilmembers a materials board. The development meets the mixed-use code requirement that at least 50% of the ground floor area be used for commercial. Initially, parking was an issue; the Planning Commission discussed parking issues for two meetings. Staff compared St. Georges’ parking option of 1.5 spaces per dwelling units with five other major Utah cities, most of which require less parking. This project is proposing 288 parking stalls. Planning Commission recommends a waiver on the guest parking because of the mixed use nature, stating that the 288 parking stalls is adequate. A couple of letters in opposition were received, one of them suggested making this building three stories rather than four. The proposed project is outside of the Historic District.

Wes Davis, representative for the applicant, stated that the proposed project will be located where Wilkinson Electric was. This is certainly an opportunity to re-energize the downtown area. They have studied the local market as well as other markets to look at what has been done in other areas. The plans meet or exceed requirements. A market study proposes a higher density than what they are proposing. Residents can walk to many amenities in the area. They have received good feedback from neighbors. In regards to the height, it falls in line with what is in the downtown area.

Councilmember Randall asked after looking at the study, how will that affect weekend parking.

Mr. Davis replied that when 100% of the residents are home, there will be 94 vacant stalls remaining in addition to off site parking. They are estimating 1½ parking stalls per unit. Most units are 1-2 bedroom, very few will have 3 bedrooms. Loading areas will be strategically planned on the property. He explained that the name Joule Plaza got its name for two reasons, the term joule is electrical measurement and a Wilkinson family ancestor had the nickname Joule. It seemed fitting since it is the old Wilkinson Electric store.

Councilmember Arial inquired about parking enforcement. She asked if the City has meter readers.

Mr. Davis explained that they anticipate identifying at least one parking stall for each residence in addition to other security measures. He visited other City’s with similar projects, their parking requirements were adequate; however, he did not speak with any of the residents.

City Manager Gary Esplin stated that City ordinance states that on-street parking is limited to 24 hours. Washington County School District is having issues with parking because of persons visiting the courthouse who are using their parking areas. From a planning

St. George City Council Minutes

standpoint, the City has tried to slow traffic down on Tabernacle. One option may be to look at angled parking for this project.

Councilmember Almquist inquired if there was any marketing research done to look at how many people may not want to own a car.

Mr. Davis stated that they did consider both walkability and the availability of bus services nearby.

Ben Rogers, architect for the project, stated that this type project does not have a precedent in Souther Utah, however, the mixed-use style of the project is used in other high urban areas. They have taken details from other projects, as well as some of the local architecture, and incorporate them into this project. Besides the 30% of ground dedicated for landscaping, they have also included 10,000 square feet for patio and green space elevated at different levels throughout the project. Finishes are intended to have a higher amount of brick on Tabernacle and 200 West. This is an opportunity to increase density.

Councilmember Randall commented that the design looks great; the project would be a bonus in the area.

Councilmember Arial commented that she is not opposed to the project; however she would rather it look more like when pioneers were here.

Mayor Pike commented that he likes the recesses and the colors are great. He feels the project will fit in well. With regard to the height, four stories will work given the surrounding buildings. This is the first time the mixed use concept will be tried in St. George.

City Manager Gary Esplin stated that one thing missing downtown is the density and bringing people who want to live in the downtown area. There is not a need for a lot of retail in the downtown area until you have the density to help support other uses in the downtown area. The only reason they can apply to reduce the parking requirement is because this project is in the mixed-use zone. The developer has been very good to work with. Although the project takes on characteristics of another city, it maintains the characteristics of St. George. This project is great for the downtown area.

Councilmember Almquist mentioned that one thing he looks for is where heating and cooling units will be. He inquired where the units will be for this project.

Mr. Rogers replied that the units will be on the roof and will be concealed by parapets.

Mayor Pike mentioned the biggest concern was parking. Planning Commission has recommended that the parking is sufficient.

Councilmember Hughes stated that he thinks the project is great, but parking concerns him.

City Manager Gary Esplin stated that he thinks there may be an issue when a retailer comes in and there is no parking available for the customer. He believes that policing the parking across the street may create a concern.

Mr. Davis advised that the development will have on-site property management. As property owners, they want to see a successful project. Additionally, they want to make sure the commercial aspect is successful.

Mayor Pike stated that it may get to the point to where the City has to monitor parking. There is more than one way to make it work.

Mr. Davis advised that most of the residential and commercial parking is in the rear. The rentals will start at $700 and will go up to $1,000 per month.

PUBLIC HEARING/VACATE ROADWAY/ORDINANCE:
Public hearing to consider vacating a portion of 3000 East and all associated easements.

City Surveyor Todd Jacobsen presented the request to roadway and public utility easement vacation. He showed an aerial map. The parcel was retained and dedicated to the City when the original Cornerstone Subdivision was vacated. It was retained to make sure the City had enough right-of-way for the roadway and future equestrian. It has since been decided that it is not in the best interest of all to have the equestrian trail run along 3000 East Street; therefore, this dedicated area is no longer needed by the City.

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

PUBLIC HEARING/FINAL PLAT AMENDMENT/ORDINANCE:
Public hearing to consider a final plat amendment for the Shinava Ridge Subdivision to move private ownership building pads 48 and 49 approximately 20 feet to the east. Kevan Bundy, applicant.

City Surveyor Todd Jacobsen advised this public hearing is a continuation from the July 17, 2014 City Council meeting for the Shinava Ridge final plat amendment. He presented a rendering showing the proposed movement of the pads. The property is located at 2549
West Sinagua Trail. The property owner wants to move the pads 20 feet closer to the cul-de-sac, since they are right up against the ridge line.

Mayor Pike stated that the request was continued because the renderings could not be seen due to technical difficulties.

Mr. Jacobsen mentioned that a few letters in opposition were received.

Councilmember Bowcutt stated that he visited the site. One of the arguments at the previous meeting was that moving the pads would block the view of Snow Canyon. He does not see how moving them would block that view.

Mayor Pike reopened the public hearing.

Ron Dallin, owner of lot 56, stated that since the last meeting he learned that there are 49 lots, 23 of which are either built on or in the process of being built on. His concern is that they live by a plat map given to them, not knowing that they can request to move the building envelope. If the other residents would have known, they would have done that. With regard to lots 48 and 49, their limited common property goes along the hill. If the pads are moved forward, it infringes on his privacy. He received a letter from the Entrada Design Review Committee (ERDC) which he says states that they were concerned with the legality of moving the property lines forward. He met with two attorneys in Utah Valley who advised him the committee cannot approve moving the pads. He asked that the City Attorney speak with these attorneys. The couple that bought these lots had the opportunity to look at other lots. He mentioned that he paid twice as much for his lot as the couple paid for those two lots. There is no question that he would retain his view of Snow Canyon. Open space has value to him as a home owner. He cannot see a compelling reason to move them as there are other options. As he looked at the plat map, he found that there are deep lots. He believes that if this is approved, the owners of the twenty-four empty lots will come in to request changes to the lots. He would like to make sure State law is followed. One of the attorneys he met with stated that this requires the vote of the entire community. There are a number of reasons to take more time in making a decision, including looking for other alternatives.

Councilmember Hughes asked Mr. Dallin what the impact would be to him if the owners were to build on the lots as they are now.

St. George City Council Minutes
August 7, 2014

Mr. Dallin stated that at the last meeting, the Smith’s stated that they are seventeen feet below his lot, however the actual height difference is approximately eight feet. Right now, he does not have a wall. If the pads are moved, he would have a wall right in front of his yard. All of the open space he thought he was going to have will be gone. He does not have a problem with the homes that are going in there, but he does not believe there is anyone that want this to happen to them. He believes that the Smith’s are taking advantage of him, especially if the state statue is not being followed. A vote is required if taking common property to someone else’s building envelope.

Councilmember Bowcutt mentioned that all of the homes built in that area would have the same height, therefore any home built will affect his view.

Mr. Dallin stated that the other homes will be further away. His issue is how close the home will be to his. He feels that having a home 65' away is too close. He will be able to see over the top of the home, but he will lose his privacy. When he built his home, the HOA was very specific on what color he could paint his home; however, they will allow homes to be moved closer to him.

Mayor Pike closed the pubic hearing.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that staff is aware of the statue which addresses common area. There is a distinction between common area and limited common area. Limited common area is not open for anyone else in the HOA, common area is owned in common by everyone in the HOA. Limited open space is not open to the neighbors. The statute refers to common area, this plat refers to limited common area. The Council can distinguish, lot by lot, different reasons why they may approve or deny a request to change a lot.

Councilmember Almquist asked City Attorney Shawn Guzman if this request was action taken by the HOA, rather than the Smith’s, to move the pads away from the edge.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman replied that in the previous public hearing, he recalls that the Smith’s stated that they went through the process and Mr. Dallin stated that he was not aware the process was taking place. The HOA had not notified Mr. Dallin, he and his neighbors would have attended the meetings. If the HOA failed to follow their own internal process, that can be taken into consideration. The Smith’s would have been the party requesting to move the pads. The request was approved by the HOA.

Councilmember Almquist believes it would be interesting to know if the same discussion would ensue had the Smith’s requested to move their home further out. He believes there
would be more view of the home on the lot left of Mr. Dallin’s if the pads stay where they are.

City Manager Gary Esplin advised that would be the argument to leave the pads as they are. He does not know why the HOA is involved in this process. What is the benefit of moving the pads? Whatever the outcome, there will be someone who is unhappy.

Mayor Pike stated that he recalled the Smith’s requested the movement because of their concerns with the slope.

Councilmember Bowcutt asked Mr. Dallin if there were markers that indicated that the entire hill was not taken away.

Mr. Dallin replied yes, there are markers that mark the property. The hill was not pushed back. He believes there is approximately 30-40 feet there.

Councilmember Bowcutt commented that the plat map shows much more space than the rendering does.

Mayor Pike commented that may be a problem if the HOA or developer did not represent the property correctly to the buyer.

City Manager Gary Esplin stated that one option is to build the house smaller to get a larger back yard.

Councilmember Hughes stated that this is not the first time the Council has seen a request to make a change. It makes a lot of sense to say what is there, is there for a reason. Buyers need to know what they are buying. He does not feel the City needs to get in the middle of an HOA or a developer issue.

SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Randall.

Consider approval of a Memorandum of Understanding between the City and the Best Friends Animal Society with regard to the Community Cat Program.

City Manager Gary Esplin advised this item is a continuation of the current program. The Police Department recommends the arrangement.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman stated that since the year is more than half over, the MOU will go through December 31, 2015.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Randall to approve the MOU with Best Friends Animal Society through December 31, 2015.

PROPERTY LEASE AGREEMENT:
Consider approval of a Property Lease Agreement with Helidyne.

Energy Services Director Phil Solomon stated that Helidyne is a local company with the potential to grow if they can prove their project. They propose to generate power off the compression inside a gas compressor. This application would be used for offshore oil and gas drilling rigs. He explained that Helidyne has a potential customer; however, that customer wants to make sure that the device works. Scott Hirschi has been involved to assist Helidyne. The proposal is that they will lease a portion of the power yard, tap into the gas line and build the test unit. Per the agreements, the City would receive any power

St. George City Council Minutes

Page Nine

that is generated and receive payment. The agreement is subject to legal review. Additionally, the City would be totally indemnified from anything that would happen.
Helidyne will be required to have insurance and to follow protocol for gaining access to the power yard.

Andrew Kerlin, Vice President of Helidyne, explained that the compressor runs off natural gas and it compresses natural gas and nitrogen. During the first phase, they will compress nitrogen and convert it to mechanical shaft power. Under full load test conditions, it will generate 60 kilowatts. The natural gas compressor is a piston type. They are compressing the gas for the off shore platforms that compress either natural gas or nitrogen on shore and then send it to the platform to send down the hole. Their potential customer is Pemex, the 5th largest oil producer in the world. They will be working with Dominion who is contracted to supply power to the platforms. If successful, they plan on relocating to the industrial park and will create 200 jobs. He explained that they need natural gas to power the gas compressor.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised the Legal Department has read and approved the agreement.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to approve the property lease with Helidyne.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist.

City Engineer Jay Sandberg explained that on the east side of the Washington Fields area, there are three detention basins. The Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) has funds to study the basins for flood control. In order to move forward with the study, the NRCS is requiring that the Watershed Work Plan agreement be updated. The biggest change is adding the Washington County Flood Control Authority, who will take the lead role in management of upgrading and construction of the three basins.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that if you drive along the new road by the Airport and look off to the west, you can see one of the basins. The City does not maintain the basins and they are not on City property; however, they protect City properties in the event of a flood.

Mr. Sandberg advised the agreement was reviewed and approved by the Legal Department.

Councilmember Almquist stated that the basins are fairly old. It makes sense that they be updated.
