St. George Exchange Club Representative Shonie Christensen addressed the Mayor and Council and mentioned the 29th Annual Mayors Walk that takes place the morning of the St. George Marathon. She mentioned that $1 of every registration is going to help support the All Abilities Park currently under construction.

Consider award of bid for a 2016 SunTran Paratransit bus.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that in order to run the city SunTran bus system, it is required by federal law to provide paratransit for those who can’t access the regular bus system because of wheelchair and other access issues, and this paratransit bus is to help meet those requirements. This would be replacing one of the paratransit busses that has several hundred thousand miles on it. He explained that funds are included in this year’s budget for two paratransit buses for a total of $140,000, but only one bus will be purchased at this time because of cost restrictions.

He remarked that Council will need to discuss possible solutions for this issue at a future time.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that this is one of three re-roofing projects budgeted for this year. Purchasing Manager Connie Hood mentioned that there were responses from 3 different suppliers for this bid. Stout Roofing submitted the low bid for the amount of $77,645.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that this item and item 2 J go together, as it is a tractor and trailer to haul sludge for the Wastewater Treatment facility and are specialized pieces of equipment that are included in the current year’s budget. He explained that this item came in higher than the budgeted amount but the trailer came in lower so they actually balanced each other out. Purchasing Manager Connie Hood stated that this is a purchase off the state contract through Freightliner of Utah for a 2016 Freightliner Cascadia 113 in cab chassis for the amount of $96,338.

Mayor Pike mentioned that the city provides wastewater treatment facilities for not only St. George City, but also Ivins, Washington and Santa Clara cities as well.

This is a sole source purchase, as the only manufacturer to make this is Converto

Consider approval of a change order for the Washington Fields Trail and Drainage project.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the change order is for the installation of a 24” diameter water line on Mall Drive. The line needs to be installed prior to the widening of Mall Drive east of the bridge where commercial development is currently underway. He recommends upsizing this line now to meet the master plan, otherwise an 8” line would be installed right now, and then a 24” line would need to replace it in the future. He explained that the costs are being prorated between the City and the developing property owners and the city’s portion would come from water impact funds or department capital project funds. The cost is $602,405.90.

Councilmember Hughes asked if the change order cost included the developer’s portion of the project. Water Department Director Scott Taylor stated that this was for the entire cost of the project and would expect a refund of around $100,000 from the developers.

PUBLIC HEARING/ORDINANCE
Public hearing and ordinance to consider amending the Planned Development – Commercial zone for property located at 95 South 200 east to allow for a small commercial pottery sales showroom. Twila Abrams, applicant.

Planning and Zoning Manager John Willis explained that there are two parts to this PD amendment; the first part is to add a use to the existing PD-C, and the second is a request to continue a non-conforming use that is ongoing on the site now. He mentioned that this property was approved as a Bed and Breakfast and a small restaurant, although it has never been in operation as either. The applicant is requesting an amendment to the PD-C zone, which would allow for a small commercial pottery sales showroom and gallery area of approximately 600 sq. ft. on the main floor of the east building. He showed aerial views of the site along with photos of existing structures and uses. He explained that the owner would be required to pave the access to the parking area but there is a large old tree in the driveway that they do not wish to remove so the driveway will go around it. The owners plan to live in the main house and the building on the east side would be the pottery showroom. The upstairs of the east building would remain residential property. Planning Commission has recommended approval of this change.

Mayor Pike felt that this was a good use for the property and appreciated preserving the historical charm of the older well maintained homes in downtown St. George such as this one.

Mayor Pike then closed the public hearing.

Councilmember Almquist stated that this use seems to fit in with the city’s idea of having an arts section in the downtown area and commended the owners on the maintenance of the beautiful home and efforts to make this a quality venue.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Almquist to approve the ordinance amending the zone change for Ms. Twila Abrams, as was presented to facilitate the PD-C that was approved for a Bed and Breakfast to incorporate the continued use of the two existing residents and a storage garage, and allow for a pottery studio in the easternmost building labeled #2, and to reduce the width of the required asphalt for the east entrance to the back property to 20 ft in that area because of conflict with a tree.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Randall.
VOTE: Mayor Pike called for a roll call vote, as follows:
Councilmember Almquist – aye
Councilmember Hughes – aye
Councilmember Randall – aye
Councilmember Bowcutt – aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

PUBLIC HEARING/ORDINANCE
Public hearing and ordinance to consider a General Plan amendment from E (Employment) and MDR (Medium Density Residential) to MHDR (Medium High Density Residential) on property located at approximately 1280 West 4700 South. SunRiver St. George Development, applicant.

Planning and Zoning Manager John Willis stated that this is a general plan amendment that was previously heard at City Council. The original request was for High Density Residential (MDR), but given some of the questions and concerns that were expressed, the applicant chose to go back and resubmit a request for Medium High Density Residential (MDHR). He presented the views and plans of the property that was being proposed. He stated that Planning Commission recommends approval with a modification to the application which was to split the property; the portion that is along Arrowhead Canyon would remain MDR, and the portion located along I-15 to be changed to MHDR. He explained that MHDR allows for 12-15 units an acre, whereas MDR has a density of 5-9 units an acre. He also explained that what the applicant is proposing is slightly different from what the Planning Commission recommended incorporating a majority of the area MDR but a small portion of it to be MHDR.

Councilmember Almquist asked for clarification on the proposed area change.

Councilmember Bowcutt asked about the density across the street from the area being proposed, Mr. Willis stated that it is Low Density Residential.

Councilmember Hughes asked about the reason for the change from what applicant originally represented and Mr. Willis explained that across the street is LDR, after the public came out and expressed their concerns the idea was that the MDR be located adjacent to the existing and that the HDR be away from the existing and against I-15 and so they wanted to maintain less density adjacent to the existing low density area.

Applicant Scott McCall with SunRiver Development addressed the Council stating that he originally requested MHDR on the entire project, after listening to public input they compromised and moved MHR to the freeway side. He explained that he didn’t get the opportunity to see the sketch that planning commission came up with until after planning commission meeting was over, so he was unable to review and discuss with the commission at that time. He then went the following day and spoke with staff and understood that the intention was to have a buffer between the areas and felt that this compromise still addresses this intention while still working within the developers plan.

Councilmember Almquist stated that this proposal seems to be a reasonable compromise in this case, as backyards of MDR would be against MHR to create a gradual change in density. Mr. McCall stated that it was their intention that they would appear very similar in nature.

There was discussion on landscaping and street placement and it was emphasized that this is still a general plan and all those issues would be addressed at a later time.

Mayor Pike then opened the meeting to public hearing reminding public that this is a general plan amendment so other concerns on specific items should be addressed at a later time.

Citizen Charles Jones introduced himself as a resident of SunRiver. He explained that he has attended all of the Planning Commission meetings and feel that what the Planning Commission came up with was more than fair. It’s hard to get a prospective of where the new line is that the developer is proposing. He wanted to know the distance from that line to Arrowhead Canyon. Mr. McCall stated that in general plans, the “line” is really a “bubble” and not a legal description or sharply defined; it’s just a general area. He explained that he could estimate the line, but in reality it would not be accurate. City Manager Gary Esplin wished to clarify that in a general plan
amendment there are not specific lines, so what is being presented is anywhere along a general area and it could go one way or the other; however, the applicant would be required to bring any requests back to the City Council for a zone change which would require a public hearing just as

this one. Mr. Jones felt that there was not very good representation from the residents at SunRiver and didn’t want to allow a situation where the developer could go in and build apartment buildings across the street from him. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the general plan would not allow for that because of the density regulations being proposed and explained that this still isn’t the right public hearing to discuss this issue. Mr. Jones then asked if it would remain a 55 and older community, Mr. McCall answered that it would, but that issue would be addressed when the plan was brought before City Council. City Manager Gary Esplin reiterated that this is for a general plan amendment only and not the venue to discuss that issue and can only discuss density and uses according to a master plan. Mr. Jones asked for clarification of the density requirements for MDR and MHDR areas and the density of the current areas of SunRiver. He stated that he had a letter from his neighbor and wanted it delivered to the Council and made sure that it was read by them. Mayor Pike asked him to hand it to the Recorder to ensure that it was distributed. Mr. Jones thanked the Council for their time.

Hearing no other public comment, Mayor Pike closed the public hearing.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to approve the ordinance to amend the general plan for 51.95 acres from E (Employment) and MDR (Medium Density Residential) to MHDR (Medium High Density Residential) as shown on the map presented by the developer. He clarified his motion that the portion to the west will be Medium Density and the portion to the east will be Medium High Density.

PUBLIC HEARING/ORDINANCE

Planning commission recommends approval.

ORDINANCE
Consider approval of an ordinance repealing Section 7-1-8 of the St. George City Code.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that currently it is illegal to ride bicycles on city sidewalks unless it has been designated by City Council for such use.

September 24, 2015

determine who qualifies for paratransit services, as well as have an appeal process in place for an applicant who has been determined to be ineligible for these services.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman requested that one change be made on line two of the third page the word be changed from “citizen” to “resident” to keep the document consistent. Other than that minor issue, he felt that it was ready for Council approval.

Mayor Pro Tem Almquist asked about the legality of the document as far as the crossing of city boundaries is concerned, as the SunTran system crosses over into the city of Ivins. City Attorney Shawn Guzman explained that it still falls under the City’s board.

RESOLUTION
Consider approval of a resolution amending and adopting net metering program fees.

Energy and Water Conservation Manager Rene Fleming presented the request to implicate fees in relation to the application process for net metering. She explained the different fees, amounts, and costs to upgrade to a bi-directional meter depending on the type of meter they would need. The proposal of a monthly “Solar Reliability Charge” was also explained to help energy services maintain fairness among all customers. She stated that this was because of the customers need have available the full service if/when the customers system isn’t generating for some reason, such as when it’s cloudy or at night. Another change to the program would be a renewable wholesale rate review is done annually for all net meter customers in December at which time each customer will be evaluated, adjusted if needed, given the cost credit at that time if earned, and then reset for the next year.

Ms. Fleming stated that part of what they are doing with solar energy is putting together a workshop for customers who want to know more about the net metering program which would explain policy, the application process, questions they should ask when considering installing solar, as well as things they should expect when they talk to a contractor.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman informed the Council that the resolution before them included the following: Adoption of fees, net metering program, appendix which gives a breakdown of the fees and how they are calculated, and an updated interconnection agreement.

Mayor Pike mentioned that a lot of time and effort has been put into this resolution by staff and felt that this resolution was a well written and thought out document. Ms. Fleming stated that she has been happy to meet with any customers and hear their concerns and answer any questions that they may have, and appreciate when customers are interested and willing to discuss concerns.

Councilmember Almquist asked about the policy on meters that malfunction and who is responsible for any errors that may occur. Ms. Fleming stated that the first time there is an

issue the customer is responsible, if there is a second time the meter malfunctions then the city is responsible. She explained that generally speaking the electric meters by design do not usually malfunction; it is usually the ERT (electronic reading transmitter) that ends up going bad.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to approve a resolution amending the renewable net metering program and adopting and amending fees for said program.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist
VOTE: Mayor Pike called for a roll call vote, as follows:

Consider approval of accepting the Utah State Recreational Trails matching grant.

City Manager Gary Esplin stated that the Park Planning Division applied for a trail grant for the Virgin River South Trail from approximately 400 feet on the west side of River Road to approximately 1200 feet on the east side including rustic trailhead, and this is a request to accept the matching grant for $50,000. Mr. Esplin further explained that all the requirements to obtain the grant are unknown at this time, so staff would have to evaluate and review the cost issues to make certain it would be cost effective to accept the grant.

Councilmember Jimmie Hughes asked what requirements would prohibit staff from accepting the grant. Mr. Esplin stated that most likely it would be costly environmental issues or studies, or building requirements that would make the project cost prohibitive.

Park Planning representative Millie Cockerill mentioned that in her experience, an environmental study would most likely be recommended but this particular area has already had significant disturbance due to the massive flooding, so she didn’t feel that the environmental impact would be a problem. She mentioned that there is $360,000 in funds allocated in this year’s budget to complete a portion of the trail from Rustic Trailhead up to The Springs Park.
Mayor Pike also mentioned that he would still like to see this trail connected to riverside and indicated that different concepts of this idea are being considered.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Almquist to potentially accept the
Utah State Recreational Trails matching grant and approve the $50,000 matching funds.

Consider amending the loan agreement for the Ft. Pierce Business Park to allow for additional property.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that when the Ft. Pierce business park was developed the City and Dixie Power loaned the developers necessary funds to complete the infrastructure because SITLA owned the land and could not subordinate it for a commercial loan. The City received an 8 or 9% interest rate return. The developers payments are current with no outstanding balance. This action would add additional acreage into the Ft. Pierce development that was not part of the original subdivision giving additional industrial property to sell.

Councilmember Hughes asked if this amendment would require the city to provide additional funding, Mr. Esplin replied that it would not; it is just increasing the land scope of the agreement.

SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist.

St. George City Council Minutes
September 24, 2015

resolution is proposing is that the city pledge these revenues to pay the debt service on the RAP tax bonds that the Council has previously discussed and determined to do. He stated that this resolution would authorize the approval for the security for those bonds be the Franchise Tax for the amount of $850,000 a year for 10 years. He also explained that this is a proposal to do a direct placement which would save the city a significant amount of money due to the low interest rate right now. He stated that it is currently out to bid assuring that the city will get the best rate possible. He stated that he strongly believes that the city will receive up to 1.4 to 1.6 million dollars annually from the RAP tax funds.
