OPENING:    

Mayor Pike called the meeting to order and welcomed all in attendance.  He noted that the invocation was offered and The Pledge of Allegiance was said during the work meeting.

 

COMMENTS FROM THE PUBLIC:

Mayor Pike mentioned the City takes fifteen (15) minutes for this portion of the meeting; each speaker will be given three minutes after which he outlined the rules.  He noted that two (2) items the public would like to comment about are on tonight’s agenda.  He explained that the Council has agreed to sell 150 acres to Tech Ridge LLC.  Approximately ten (10) acres have already been approved for zoning; breaking ground in the next couple of months.  That project will be a fundamental change for the ridge.   The current park is right at the entrance to the proposed development.  The developer needs the property to help frame and be a part of the entrance.  They have agreed to replace the park on the other side of the existing townhomes, before they remove the existing park.  Additionally, he would like to make sure it connects to the Temple Quarry Trail and make sure residents do not need to cross the road to get to the park.  He suggested a neighborhood meeting to discuss and show residents a concept, regardless of what happens tonight.  The City will not allow the developer to tear down the park prior to building a new one.  

 

City Manager Adam Lenhard noted the standard to which the City is developing parks today; they are a significant step above older parks.  There are some real opportunities with the way parks are developed now versus when this park was built.  The neighborhood meeting would assist staff in getting input from residents to plan the park.

 

Resident Rick Walker stated that he is concerned about the park going away.  The first time he heard about this item is on social media.  His grandfather is the one who donated the land for the park.  The idea of taking that is away is frustrating.  He would like the vote to be postponed until after the neighborhood meeting.

Mayor Pike explained the City typically meets with residents when parks are planned; however, this particular situation is a bit different.  City Manager Adam Lenhard agreed and stated that this was an oversight.

 

Resident Ryker Luce read a letter he wrote asking the Council to build a park first as promised.

 

Resident Amy Luce commented this is more than a park to the residents in the area.  She read a letter she wrote asking the Council to follow through with building the park prior to removing this one.  She then asked that the vote be postponed until after the neighborhood meeting. 

 

Resident Tadd Derrick mentioned that residents are worried about being able to maintain their quality of life as growth moves forward.  He does not want to lose the park until the replacement is built.

 

Resident Emily Murphy noted she is a resident as well as a realtor.  She asked the Council to delay the vote until the neighbors have a look at what is being built. 

 

Mayor Pike explained that a neighborhood meeting will give the City a chance to show residents what the entire project will look like.  He noted there will be residential, not just commercial.  The developer and the City will be very involved as there is a development agreement.  

 

Resident Diane Braithwaite mentioned that she has lived on Lava Flow for eleven (11) years.  She is not against the bicycle skills park; however, she is against it being in the proposed area.  This is a floodplain so she believes it will be washed away one day.  She asked what Open Space (OS) is and why this is allowed in a residential zone.

 

Planning & Zoning Manager John Willis explained the Open Space (OS) does permit for parks and recreation.  He added that most of this property is zoned R-1-10 which would allow for a bicycle skills park with a conditional use permit.

 

Mayor Pike noted that the City does not have too many parcels with 80 acres to build a bicycle skills park.  The plans have been done with flood potential in the area. 

 

CONSENT CALENDAR:

City Manager Adam Lenhard explained how a consent calendar works.  He pointed out item 2d should read to award the bid to Western Rock Products.  He then asked the Council if they would like to remove any of the items to discuss.

 

a.         Consider approval of the financial report for March, 2018.

 

b.         Consider approval of the minutes from the meeting held on April 19, 2018.

CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: 

Consider approval of a conditional use permit to construct a linear bicycle skills park on in the vicinity of Lava Flow Drive, east of Snow Canyon High School.

 

Planning & Zoning Manager John Willis presented the request for a conditional use permit to construct a linear bicycle skills park on in the vicinity of Lava Flow Drive, east of Snow Canyon High School.  He presented a PowerPoint presentation covering the following topics:  zoning map; site plan.  The Planning Commission recommended approval with findings.


Parks Planner Mark Goble showed and outlined a concept plan.  They hope to hold events at this park; a 6-mile loop is needed.  This site is very compatible as there are 1,000 parking spaces at the schools that can be utilized.  He showed and outlined phase 1 and explained that most of the improvements are outside of the 500-year floodplain after which he showed photos of examples of the proposed features.  They do not plan on disturbing the existing trail.  Back in 2017 they held a meeting with the public to vote on the amenities.  He stated there will be some noise; dust will be controlled; re-vegetation will occur; there will not be any odors; there will be minimal impact to the existing site and vegetation; the skills area will flow with the natural contours of the site without much disturbance; and off street parking will be offered.  There will be traffic - events will need to have traffic control.  Hours of operation will be from sunrise until 10:00 p.m. – there will be no lights except for the restroom pavilions.  He feels the positive impacts outweigh the negative impacts.  This is something for kids to do to keep them active.  Parking is proposed to be off Lava Flow; it will be paved in the second phase.  There is a possibility of a playground in the future.  The nearest home is approximately 50’ away.  He has not met with any of the citizens against the proposal; however, a public meeting was held that they could have attended.

 

City Attorney Shawn Guzman noted with regards to liability, this proposal is similar to having diving boards at the pools.  They are designed to appropriate standards; every risk cannot be eliminated.  This park was designed is according to national standards to address situations.  He feels comfortable with the design.    

 

Mr. Goble commented that he anticipates 1-2 events per year.

 

Support Services Director Marc Mortensen stated Utah has the largest group of children participated in this organization.  There is a need for a facility such as this. 

 

Mayor Pike noted when RAP tax was being discussed, this proposal was one of the items the Council listed to use the funds for.
