...ces agreement with Parsons-Brinkerhoff oject complies with Federal Highway Administration requirements. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the City would enter into a construction management contract with Parsons-Brinkerhoff, selected by UDOT to ensure the project complies with all federal and state requirements. AGREEMENT: Consider approval of a Landscape Maintenance Agreement with UDOT for maintenance of enhanced landscaping within the UDOT right-of-way and on City property adjacent to Dixie Drive. City Manager Gary Esplin explained this item is an agreement the City has previously entered into with UDOT which states that once the landscaping was complete, the City would maintain the landscaping on the right of way. Mr. Esplin stated the exposure to the City may be a cost increase if the project were to go out to for public bid. He feels the risk is worth getting the project done while the roadway is closed because UDOT is allowing the City to use the contractors management as part of this project. This may be the most effective way as far as timing and cost to complete the project on time. Mayor McArthur stated the process has been reviewed and will not exceed the cost and actually may reduce the cost using this process. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that through the process, which is administered by the State, the City is being asked because the City is a party through the enhancement grant. Mayor McArthur commented the costs for the agreements are included in the price of the project. Parks Planning Manager Laura Taylor added the overall transportation enhancement project is approximately $625,000.00 which includes much more than the medians. The goal of City Staff is to have the medians planted completely by July 26 with additional work needed on the side of the roadway after that date which may include road closure. St. George City Council Minutes May 3, 2012 Page Nine City Manager Gary Esplin stated the interchange will be able to open with limited road closures if necessary since this project includes landscaping on the side of the road way as well as connection of the trails. Mayor McArthur stated this is a significant project that will finally connect the trails in the City. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to approve the professional services agreement with SCS to provide independent cost estimating for the Dixie Drive Transportation Enhancement project.

He St. George City Council Minutes June 16, 2016 Page Four explained that this is the improvement project at the Airport planned for the next fiscal year and is a Federally funded project. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Randall to approve the amendment for the Professional Services Agreement with Jviation in the amount of $99,146.00 SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Baca. VOTE: Mayor Pike called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Hughes – aye Councilmember Randall - aye Councilmember Bowcutt – aye Councilmember Arial – aye Councilmember Baca – aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid for the annual purchase of asphalt, concrete, sand and gravel. Purchasing Manager Connie Hood explained that this is the annual bid for asphalt, and concrete sand and gravel. The bids came in with split results for this annual buy. Blanket PO’s will be established with both suppliers to take advantage of the lowest pricing for each product as shown. Having an alternate supplier will benefit the City by having supply on hand when needed from 2 different suppliers. The cost is $150,000.00. Councilmember Hughes commented that this was a great solution for the City to have the ability to choose the lowest price for the products needed and makes financial sense. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Arial to award the blanket bid not to exceed $150,000.00 to be divided between SunRoc and Western Rock for materials needed for the fiscal year. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Hughes. VOTE: Mayor Pike called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Hughes – aye Councilmember Randall - aye Councilmember Bowcutt – aye Councilmember Arial – aye Councilmember Baca – aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. St. George City Council Minutes June 16, 2016 Page Five PUBLIC HEARING/ADOPT FISCAL YEAR 2016-2017 BUDGET/RESOLUTION: Public hearing to receive public input on the Fiscal Year 2016-2017 Budget and Unbilled Utility Service. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that State Law requires the City to take public input in at least one public hearing regarding the proposed budget and also concerning the amount of water and electric utility services provided, yet not billed, to other City-owned facilities such as parks, right of way, water pumps and wells, etc. This is the second public hearing for the budget. He also explained the unbilled utility services notice was printed on the back of the utility bills mailed and emailed to all utility customers in May. He mentioned that not billing for some inter-department services is a common practice for municipalities and the notice informs citizens as to the amounts included in the annual budget. The net effect on the average monthly bill is $1.23 per customer for this current year. Last year was $1.54 and next fiscal year is anticipated to increase to $1.68, mostly for electricity supplied to the Water Department for wells. Mayor Pike opened the meeting for public hearing. Resident Karl Palmer addressed the Council and stated that he called Cedar City, whose electricity is provided by Rocky Mountain Power, to see how much of their utility funds are transferred into their general fund as compared to St. George City’s municipal power system. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the city doesn’t transfer any funds into the general fund from the municipal utilities that aren’t associated to an allocated cost, such as office operation costs. He stated that the 1.7 million proposed is for allocated costs that are tied to a specific item. Mr. Palmer then asked if the City has the option to charge higher rates and send money to the general fund, or lower rates and not send money to the general fund. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that some cities choose to do it that way through a public hearing such as this one, but they would then take one blanket amount from the electric fund and put in the general fund as part of the budget process and not have that associated with a cost. In the past, the City has chosen not to do that as Council believes that the electric fund ought to pay for those costs that they would otherwise have to pay to an alternate source. The only difference here would be that the City is not charging the power for the pumping of the wells; they are in the water fund. Mr. Palmer then inquired about who pays the costs for City sheds, buildings, etc. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that each department is billed for their usage; it is metered and paid for through their department budgeted funds. The only St. George City Council Minutes June 16, 2016 Page Six exception is the City does not charge itself for the electricity to pump the water system. Mr. Palmer then inquired about franchise fees, and Mr. Esplin explained how those fees are collected and allocated within the City. He also mentioned that the power company in Cedar City also pays property tax, with the City’s municipal system the City does not receive a property tax. Mr. Palmer then stated that he felt having municipal electricity was a great benefit to the City and thanked the Council. Resident Kenneth Gee then addressed the Council in regards to the increase in water rates, and asked where they got their rates from. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that the Washington County Water Conservancy District was raising rates of water and that cost needed to be passed on to the consumer. He stated that these rate increases help maintain and update the existing aging water infrastructure. Mayor Pike also mentioned that although the water rates continue to increase, as they are expected to each year by about 10 cents per thousand gal, electric rates have remained steady, and there hasn’t been an increase since 2006. Mr. Gee then expressed his frustration with City employees who he perceived as being overpaid and underworked and as such, the City should be able to find ways to cut costs to keep from increasing rates to citizens on fixed incomes like his. He expressed further frustration with the Council in passing whatever they feel like without concern for the public. Mayor Pike stated that although he respected and appreciated Mr. Gee for expressing his opinion, he felt that what he was stating was extremely inaccurate. He stated that the City employs over 600 full-time employees with another 400 part-time employees. Throughout the entire economy downturn there wasn’t a single new position hire and department heads take seriously their responsibilities the charge of their employees. He also reiterated that the City does not charge citizens any more for utilities than they must to maintain the current infrastructure that we have. Citizen Todd Watts addressed the Council. He explained that he is a manager of a commercial laundry business in town. He recognizes that he is one of the major water users every month. He expressed his concern at the 19% water rate increase for larger water users and inquired if he should expect this kind of drastic increase every year as he too must plan and stay within a budget. Mayor Pike stated that although water rates are expected to increase every year, they are not anticipated to increase that drastically for larger water users each year. St. George City Council Minutes June 16, 2016 Page Seven Citizen Gordon Lighter addressed the Council and inquired about the options of solar energy in keeping costs down. Mr. Esplin stated that the City is currently looking at solar projects and works hard to keep costs as low as possible. He stated that solar power is good for general public, although there always needs to be the infrastructure and capability there for when solar is not producing as much as needed and the City needs to cover those backup costs. Councilmember Bowcutt mentioned that the power department is a great source of information on this subject and regularly puts on seminars to help inform the public on the benefits and costs associated with solar energy. Citizen Julie Benson stated that the increase affects her budget as well. She expressed concern about the Council staying within a budget. She inquired on the proposed water rate increase each year and then stated that the City should look into more xeriscaping for their parks to be more desert friendly. Mayor Pike stated that the City works hard to stay within their budget, and they always do. The City does in fact use water conservative desert landscaping whenever possible, although it is not reasonable to do so in parks where children play or cemeteries. He explained that those areas are watered with re-use water that would otherwise go down river if not used. Hearing no further public comment, Mayor Pike then closed the public hearing. City Manager Gary Esplin wished to clarify some aspects of the budget. He explained that the proposed property tax estimates are only as good as the numbers received from the County, and that those property taxes have not increased since 1995. That makes an average cost of $280 per household per year to cover all streets, police, and fire costs based on a $2,000 tax bill for a residence. He also explained the reallocation of items not included in the original budget proposal. Councilmember Baca wished to let the public know that the Administration staff does a very thorough job with the budget and take it v...

...GEORGE CITY COUNCIL MINUTES SPECIAL MEETING JUNE 22, 2000, 4:00 P.M. ADMINISTRATION CONFERENCE ROOM PRESENT: Mayor Dan McArthur Councilmember Sharon Isom Councilmember Rod Orton Councilmember Suzanne Allen Councilmember Larry Gardner Councilmember Bob Whatcott City Manager Gary Esplin City Attorney Jonathan Wright City Recorder Gay Cragun OPENING: Mayor McArthur called the meeting to order and welcomed all in attendance. The invocation was offered by Councilmember Gardner. ORDINANCE VACATING PORTION OF 400 SOUTH STREET: City Manager Gary Esplin explained the City received a request from Woodbury Corp. to vacate a portion of 400 South Street east of River Road as the site plan for Lowe’s calls for the building to sit in the middle of this road and it is no longer needed for a public street. There is a problem with title to the property, however, it is recommended the City proceed with the abandonment. A motion was made by Councilmember Orton to approve the ordinance abandoning a portion of 400 South Street east of River Road. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner. A roll call vote was taken and all voted aye except Councilmember Whatcott who was not yet present. ADJOURN TO WORK MEETING: A motion was made by Councilmember Isom to adjourn to a work meeting. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen, and all voted aye. Mayor McArthur recognized a Scout in attendance at the meeting. Councilmember Whatcott arrived. DISCUSSION RE IMPROVEMENTS AT BLOOMINGTON INTERCHANGE: City Manager Gary Esplin explained the next step after approval of the zone change for Walmart was to have a feasibility study done for the roundabout at the interchange. That feasibility study has been completed and submitted to the State. The City is in possession of a letter from the State advising that the roundabout will work and they accept the concept. Lowry Snow distributed a diagram of the proposed roundabout. He advised the outside diameter of the circle is 300'. City Manager Gary Esplin stated the next step is to determine how to pay for the improvements. $1,485,000 is the estimated cost of the project, including both roundabouts and all improvements. Jay Schneider advised the old bid did not contain a great deal of design. The new design is detailed and contains improvements suggested by UDOT. City Manager Gary Esplin advised Walmart is willing to contribute $500,000 toward the cost of the project, and the State has committed up to $500,000 toward the cost of the project, although nothing has been received in writing. $485,000 remains to be funded by others. He stated he held discussions with State Trust Lands and Sun River, and advised them the City would be St. George City Council Minutes June 22, 2000 Page Two looking to them and others to help pay for the shortfall. He stated they understood they had some obligation to pay for improvements at that interchange. Mr. Esplin advised a key issue is that this project is projected to solve traffic needs at this intersection for the next 20-30 years, and any contribution the City makes to this project would help solve a long term traffic situation, rather than allowing Walmart to install traffic lights for a short term solution. He stated he did not view City participation in the project as subsidizing Walmart’s development, but as good long range planning. Mayor McArthur stated this project will not impact or change any plans the City has for other transportation improvement projects, and will not financially impact its citizens. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the shortfall could be funded by Walmart, with reimbursement by the City at a later date as revenues were collected. An interest rate would have to be determined to see if it would be better to front the costs or borrow the funds and pay interest. He advised the matter would be placed on a City Council agenda for official action when a document has been prepared and terms specified. City Councilmember Isom stated there is a perception that taxes will have to be raised if the City participates in the roundabout. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the City would be using transportation funds to solve a long range traffic planning issue, and it should take advantage of the opportunity to combine funds to make the project work. He advised if the City Council felt comfortable with the concept, he would begin negotiations with the parties. He advised that timing is important, as there is a six month time requirement for the UDOT review process. Lowry Snow advised Walmart believes the $1,485,000 cost of the project is a conservative bid, and might come in lower. This lower amount would reduce the City’s share of the project, not Walmart’s or the State’s share. He advised that Walmart is willing to take a risk and continue through the building permit process, even though UDOT has not given their final approval. He advised he recognized the roundabout had to be in place before Walmart opened. Councilmember Gardner commented he was not sure $500,000 was a sufficient contribution from Walmart to help solve the traffic problems. Councilmember Whatcott inquired if the roundabout was the optimum solution to solve traffic problems at this intersection, or if other options had been considered. Walmart representatives advised there were always other solutions, but the roundabout is the most economical and best solution for the area as it will handle traffic problems for the next 20+ years. Councilmember Gardner advised criticism has been made concerning the southbound off-ramp where it intersects with the circle, and the east/west underpass road. He requested that distances and site clearances be addressed. Walmart representatives advised there is a six month process for full design, and these issues will be addressed in the final design process. St. George City Council Minutes June 22, 2000 Page Three Mayor McArthur advised the issue will be scheduled on a regular City Council agenda. PRESENTATION RE TRAFFIC SYNCHRONIZATION PROGRAM: Traffic Engineer Aron Baker gave a presentation on the City’s traffic signal coordination system, future trends, and proposed traffic signals.

The City needs to provide security in the interim and the federal government will reimburse the City for the costs. Council Member Isom asked if we have manpower? Chief Stratton indicated it will take at least two new officers. Security is needed seven days a week for approximately twenty hours a day. City Manger Esplin advised federal regulations require security to keep the airport operating. He indicated along with the two new officers it will also some require some overtime to meet the security requirements. He explained that the federal government is scheduled to take over security functions in November 2002, however the federal government will be staffing large airports first, so it may be a few months after that before federal employees staff the airport. At that time the two new officers will be terminated or assimilated into the force. He indicated he doesn't know what the reimbursement amount will be. The agreement says the City will be reimbursed on annual basis. There is a verbal agreement that reimbursement will be for regular time and over time. He explained one issue is can next years budget include funding for two new officers?

Also, the City Council may choose not to help some programs it helped last year. Council Member Allen inquired about an incomplete application. Mr. Bates replied that it was not significant enough to reject the application. Council Member Bunker inquired if the City ever funded the Jefferson Park complex. Mr. Bates replied that it had not. The 50 unit complex is going out of its Section 8 20 year contract, and the Western Region Nonprofit Housing Corporation is trying to buy it so they can keep it for rent-assisted housing. If not, 50 families will be displaced. The applicants will keep it in the HUD program. Council Member Allen inquired why another $240,000 was being requested for the first time home buyer program. Mr. Bates explained that the application was for $200,000 to help 20 families, and $40,000 for administration costs. The City funded only the $200,000. Mayor McArthur...

ADMINISTRATION CONFERENCE ROOM/CITY COUNCIL CHAMBERS PRESENT: Mayor Daniel McArthur Council Member Suzanne Allen Council Member Rod Orton Council Member Bob Whatcott Council Member Larry Gardner City Attorney Shawn Guzman City Recorder Gay Cragun EXCUSED: Council Member Gail Bunker City Manager Gary Esplin OPENING: Mayor McArthur called the meeting to order and welcomed all in attendance. The pledge of allegiance was led by Scout Josh Acey and the invocation was offered by Council Member Rod Orton. Mayor McArthur recognized Jon Pike and Ed Baca, recent City Council candidates, and congratulated Mr. Pike on his election. He congratulated all the candidates who ran for election. Mayor McArthur invited several Scouts in the audience to introduce themselves. The meeting then moved to the City Council Chambers. Council Member Gardner arrived. Mayor McArthur invited more Scouts in the audience to introduce themselves. DISCUSSION ON POLICIES FOR TOWN SQUARE: Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins distributed copies of the recommended policies and procedures for use of Town Square and reviewed them. Council Member Gardner commented he hoped the City would be cautious and not make too many rules and regulations and hoped the fees would not discourage use of the facility. However, the City is not out of line to charge fees to cover its costs. Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins advised if the City receives a request to use the Town Square, staff will put a tentative hold on the facility, and if the fee is not paid within two to three days, the hold would be lifted. Mayor McArthur commented the Town Square is for public use. The City has enough other facilities that can be reserved. Council Member Whatcott commented that because City personnel would be needed on site, as well as the police, it sounded like any event held at the Town Square would St. George City Council Minutes November 8, 2007 Page Two be sponsored by the City. In this event fees would not be needed. There are plenty of other parks with BBQ pits. The Town Square should be a place where families can always go to throw a frisbee or let the kids play in the water, without having to plan. Other than large events such as the 4th of July or First Night, etc. the City would then not need to worry about charging fees. The Town Square should not be tied up for anything other than City sponsored events. Mayor McArthu commented that the City has other facilities for weddings, etc. The Town Square is a place for the public to drop in and enjoy. He suggested that it not be rented out or scheduled unless it is a City sponsored event. Council Member Allen agreed. She inquired about a policy on walking dogs within the Town Square. Mr. Perkins replied the policy will require mandatory clean-up. Mayor McArthur suggested the policies and procedures be refined and reviewed with the City?s partners in the Town Square for recommendations. Assistant to the City Manager Marc Mortensen advised that the Downtown Thursday Night event has moved back to Main Street, but it would be nice to get them off Main Street and into the Town Square. Council Member Allen inquired about vendors in the Town Square. Council Member Orton commented that this would defeat the purpose of the Town Square. The purpose is to promote area businesses. Allowing vendors only promotes those vendors and does not generate business for the established businesses. Council Member Gardner advised that some of the downtown merchants feel that having vendors in the Town Square is an advantage, as people will linger and stroll in the area. Mr. Mortensen advised that Downtown Thursday Night has permission from the City to operate up until the Christmas Stroll event, but this is a discussion for another day. The recent Dixie Care and Share Cook-Off was their most successful ever, and the food was prepared off site and brought in and sold. This event was not City-sponsored, but was held in conjunction with the Book Festival. Mayor McArthur invited several more Scouts in the audience to introduce themselves. REQUEST TO PURCHASE CITY PROPERTY: Mr. Jim Slemboski explained that he and his wife have lived in their Bloomington home for over eight years. There is a five acre parcel of raw land in back of their home owned by the City. Recently this area has become a popular place for four wheelers and motorcycles and jumps. He stated this creates a dust problem and security issue. He stated he has been contemplating building a wall, which is not his preference, but is needed for security. In connection with this, he made a request to trade some of his property for City property for a better wall configuration. St. George City Council Minutes November 8, 2007 Page Three Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins explained that staff has worked with Mr. Slemboski to design the property configuration to minimize impacts on City property for the future. Currently there is no master plan for any specific use on the five acre parcel. Council Member Orton inquired how many other people could make application for some of the property. Mr. Slemboski replied that everyone around him is located on a hill with a continuous wall all the way down to 1550 West. He has the only walk-out basement on the street. There is also a hill with an elevation of 15-20 feet coming up to where the access road comes in from Paiute. Mr. Perkins advised that the five acre parcel continues over to the Water Treatment Plant area, and that is why it is not planned for use as a park and has not been maintained. Mayor McArthur suggested the matter be scheduled on a regular City Council meeting agenda for action. He suggested that Mr. Slemboski provide horizontal pictures of the property. Several Council Members indicated they would drive out and look at the property. Council Member Whatcott commented that the City Council must look at the value of the property, as it has done with surplus golf course property, and do a calculation based on the square footage. City Attorney Shawn Guzman arrived. DISCUSSION ON ACCESS MANAGEMENT ORDINANCE: City Engineer Dave Demas explained that aHorrocks has put together this ordinance for the City. In order for the City to qualify for corridor preservation funds, an access management policy must be in place. Lee Cabal with Horrocks Engineers advised that one of the key strategies of the access management plan is to maximize safety and efficiency of street corridors. The plan needs to be approved to qualify for certain types of funding to help in corridor preservation and other different funding programs. It is especially important in new areas like Dixie Drive and specifies driveway spacing, signal spacing, driveway design, basic good engineering design, access spacing to maximize the carrying capacity of a street, and safety. It attempts to provide deceleration lanes and control the number of conflict points. He presented a power point presentation on the typical vicious circle in the transportation land use cycle, roadway functional classification, movement vs. access, residential local type of streets, collector roads, major collector roadways, guideline sections of the policy, access spacing, landscaped medians, raised medians, corner clearance, turning radiuses, driveway throat length, shared access, intersection and driveway sight distances, turning lanes, auxiliary lane length requirements, left turn lanes, pedestrian and bicycle access, paved cross walks, and access management techniques. St. George City Council Minutes November 8, 2007 Page Four Mayor McArthur inquired as to the application of this policy to the Layton property near Blackridge Drive. City Engineer Aron Baker explained that the policy is a minimum standard and the Layton?s situation is congested. Their right-in right-out is far enough away from the signalized intersection that it complies; it is back-up congestion from the signal that is the concern. Staff has always worked with property owners. Council Member Orton inquired if the plan contemplates total build-out. Mr. Baker replied staff works with landowners and developers on the proposal and land use plan and takes into account the information given. Council Member Orton again inquired if the plan takes into account the traffic 20 years from now. Mr. Baker replied that models are used. Council Member Orton inquired if staff was requiring developers to build to the standards required for 20 years from now. Mr. Baker replied that what is required depends on the magnitude of the development. Council Member Allen commented that building just for the present creates problems in the future. Mr. Baker used Walgreens on Sunset as an example. He stated that they have impacts directly on the property but the City is specifically asking for a right turn lane on Dixie Drive to meet growth in the area. Public Works is always trying to look ahead to help defray costs. Council Member Gardner commented that there is uniqueness to properties, and the City must allow people to use their property. He inquired if issues could be dealt with by use of reasonable discussion. Mayor McArthur inquired if there was flexibility for certain situations. City Attorney Shawn Guzman replied staff discussed this. Village Bank is a good example on an existing street without a lot of conflict. Staff worked to line up the driveways which provided an opportunity to take out the old driveways, and in the policy this would be a minor deviation which can be approved by staff. If a major deviation is requested, this is brought to the City Council for a decision. Staff has tried to build flexibility into the ordinance. Mr. Cabal advised that the policy is based on anticipated future build-out or maximum capacity. Staff and the City Council have the ability to amend the policy without having to amend the ordinance. Council Member Whatcott cited as an example the hotel/motel off Red Cliffs Drive and Wendy?s. Standing by themselves, they did not require a right turn lane. However, St. George City Council Minutes November 8, 2007 Page Five everyone knows one will be needed. He inquired about the possibility of a right turn lane by the Maverik on Riverside Drive which will be needed when the new bridge is built. Staff has not been looking into the future. It has required developers to go through lengthy and costly traffic studies to justify that improvements are not needed on stand-alone projects, when the big picture dictates that improvements will be needed. This has been a major frustration for him for a long time, and continues to be. City Attorney Shawn Guzman commented that staff can adopt and implement a policy by themselves under the ordinance without going through the City Council. The City Council is the only one who can make changes to the ordinance itself. Whether or not this will solve the problems Council Member Whatcott is concerned about remains a question. The City could, however adopt a policy requiring staff to look at zoning, and if it is commercial, then it has to plan for the street and project as if it will all be developed as zoned. Staff will have to anticipate how much to ask the developer to participate. However, knowing the area is zoned commercial, staff will know the minimum number of cars the zoning will generate and can come up with some way to do it. Council Member Allen inquired why traffic impact studies were even required when everyone knows right turn lanes are needed. Mr. Guzman replied that staff can do its own traffic impact study to use as a legal basis for taking exactions rather than having each individual parcel do a traffic study. Staff can do this by figuring out the projected traffic on a corridor and trips based on the zoning. Lee Cabal advised that traffic studies address other things important for each site. The policy will not dictate a right turn lane, but will require how it needs to be designed. Mr. Baker commented that the policy is not a panacea but is a toolbook to deal with some of the issues. Every situation is different and the policy gives staff common ground to deal with everyone the same. City Attorney Shawn Guzman suggested that some factors to be considered include not only the trips generated by a business but also the number of cars that would have to slow down in order to get into the business. He stated the City would be on solid legal ground to require each business to pay for 100% of the cost to move the traffic they generate. Lee Cabal replied that this is commonly done in Clark County and Las Vegas. Every development there is required to provide a traffic study and that study is used to evaluate each business?s proportion of the left turn lane and a cost is then exacted of each business. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that the City is doing that now. Maverik has paid toward the signal at Mall Drive. The City can make the property owner bear 100% of the cost of a right turn lane if it is determined that cars need to be moved out of the main traffic lane in order to turn right. He suggested that this requirement St. George City Council Minutes November 8, 2007 Page Six be included somewhere in the policy because it will solve the queing problem which the City is currently seeing by addressing developments separately. Council Member Whatcott inquired how this policy would be implemented. He commented that staff knows that a 60' road today will need to be 80' in 15 years. He inquired how this problem would be eliminated in the future. City Attorney Shawn Guzman replied the policy applies to streets that have been master planned. The access management ordinance does not go into private property. City Engineer Dave Demas advised that the ordinance does cover both, public and private. Council Member Gardner commented that shared access does not always work because of the different types of uses, varying sizes of lots, and setbacks, such as in the Ft. Pierce Industrial Park. He inquired if this policy applied to industrial settings. Mr. Cabal replied that it did. Marc Mortensen suggested that roads not be specifically named in the policy, but should apply to roads with a width of 66' or greater. Mayor McArthur called for a break. Upon conclusion of the break, the meeting resumed. Mayor McArthur advised that the matter would be discussed at another work meeting. ANNOUNCEMENT: Mayor McArthur announced that the City is helping sponsor a symposium on identity theft on November 17 which is open to the public. There will be several break-out sessions on the immigration quagmire, how to protect the identity of children, child identity theft, etc. It will be advertised over the next week. It is sponsored by the City, County, all cities and the Spectrum. It will be held at the Dixie Center. DISCUSSION RE SNOW CANYON PARKWAY TRAFFIC SIGNALS: City Engineer Aron Baker presented a power point presentation on the Snow Canyon Parkway traffic analysis, showing the 2000 North and Dixie Downs intersections and the benefits of signals at each location. He advised that traffic volumes are approximately the same, but there is a difference in side street turning movement. He showed counts for the entire day. He recommended moving the right turn lane off 2000 North onto SITLA property to help right hand turn traffic move more freely and for safety. He stated that future plans show signals at both locations. They are only 800' apart, however, which does not comply with the City?s policy. Staff recommends placement of the signal at the Dixie Downs intersection. Frank Stuart, President of the Castle Rock Homeowners Association, advised their main concern is that something be done. The intersections are dangerous, and to pull out of Castle Rock is a life-threatening experience. He presented a petition signed by 180 residents requesting that something be done expeditiously. He stated there was not a serious concern where the signal be located, but something must be done to St. George City Council Minutes November 8, 2007 Page Seven interrupt traffic. He suggested the signal would be better placed at the Dixie Downs intersection. He explained a similar problem exists in Paradise Canyon. Council Member Gardner suggested that a light at Dixie Downs would interrupt traffic long enough to help solve the problem at Paradise Canyon. Mr. Stuart commented that Dixie Downs is clearly the better choice. Council Member Orton inquired how soon a light could be installed. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch replied that a change order would be needed to include the light as part of the current project. Mr. Baker replied that it would be six months before the light could be installed because equipment is scarce. However, a temporary light could be installed before then. Mayor McArthur commented a temporary light should be installed. Mrs. Stuart commented that Castle Rock is the smallest subdivision affected. Paradise Canyon has twice as many residents. Dr. Brian commented that he lives in Paradise Canyon and can?t get out onto Snow Canyon Parkway in the morning or afternoon. There needs to be a stop light somewhere on Snow Canyon Parkway as soon as possible. This will help them long enough so they can get out and go up the hill. Mr. Baker advised a light at Paradise Canyon is on the master plan for the future. Mayor McArthur instructed staff to install a temporary light at the Dixie Downs intersection. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch asked for permission to begin design for the permanent light at the Dixie Downs intersection while the temporary light is put in. The City Council granted their permission. DISCUSSION WITH LARRY BLAKE: Larry Blake explained that when he received approval from the City Council last week for a conditional use permit to construct a car wash along River Road, Council Member Whatcott brought up the issue of a right hand turn lane off River Road into the project. Staff asked if he would be willing to give up a little property for this turn lane. He stated he wanted to be a good neighbor and told staff that if the City would relax the landscaping requirements a little, he would give up some property for a turn lane. He stated the biggest rub is that he already paid for the curb and improvements along River Road as part of a special improvement district. He inquired if the City would participate in some of the costs to move the curb and lay the asphalt. Council Member Whatcott replied this would only be fair since the City is asking for the turn lane. St. George City Council Minutes November 8, 2007 Page Eight City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised a cost sharing agreement would be needed. Council Member Gardner commented that City Manager Gary Esplin said that staff would report to the City Council at this meeting on platting problems as far as the title companies are concerned. He stated that implementation of a law has created challenges in the business community with the way several things function. The City Attorney is supposed to report tonight about the issue and a work meeting scheduled with the title companies and business community. The issue has to do with abandoning old plats. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised he was not present at the last meeting, and Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston advised that what the City is requiring is standard and is what is required all the time. Mr. Blake advised that his attorney, Chris Engstrom, does not agree with Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston?s interpretation of the law. If her interpretation of the law is correct, the City survey is a recorded plat and no one in the entire City would be able to sell a lot without abandoning the City survey, etc. Ms. Houston advised him that this was his problem, not hers. He stated he felt the City Attorney?s office would take repercussions against him. He requested a meeting with the City Attorney, Mr. Engstrom, engineers, and title companies. City Attorney Shawn Guzman replied that the City Attorney?s office has never acted in any way that would make anyone think it would take repercussions against them. He stated they have a good relationship with the community. Mr. Blake apologized and said he should not have made that statement, but as a developer he was afraid to have a conflict with staff. City Attorney Shawn Guzman commented that he knows what the law says and has talked to several city attorneys about it. The law says something different than what cities are doing. Mr. Blake stated maybe it would take the legislature to tweak the law, but the City?s current interpretation is that a subdivision cannot be filed on top of a subdivision. Every piece of property in this town is filed on top of a subdivision. Council Member Allen commented that the matter may be subject to state law. Council Member Gardner replied that most laws come down to enforcement. If there is flexibility to resolve the issue, then that needs to be addressed. City Attorney Shawn Guzman agreed that the matter needed to be addressed. DISCUSSION WITH LINDA KIRKPATRICK: Linda Kirkpatrick distributed layouts of her project and advised that the layout was slightly changed from the last one due to some innovative thoughts from the Planning Department. The product has the new urban feel with the main benefit being single family detached units. The units along the bottom south road will be two stories and 1400 sq. ft. The garages will be offset to provide an architectural feel. Concerns were St. George City Council Minutes November 8, 2007 Page Nine expressed by the Fire Department and she sat down with Kevin Taylor and addressed them. The two back rows will be single family detached units, 2200 to 2500 sq. ft. The homes can be up to six bedrooms. They will have 480 sq. ft. garages. She stated she wanted to keep people in this community rather than have them go to Pecan Ridge in Hurricane. She inquired of the City Council if they had questions or concerns. Council Member Allen commented that the neighbors will be out in force because the plan did not show 450 North as being finished. Ms. Kirkpatrick replied that she has spoken with Springtree and David Chase and they are excited about the project. She stated the City will hear support from them. Mayor McArthur inquired in what phase 450 North would be completed. He stated because the City allowed the road to be narrowed, Ms. Kirkpatrick agreed to finish both sides of the street. Ms. Kirkpatrick replied that the first phase of this subdivision is the location of a Parade home and she has only 75 days to complete it. She advised her intent is to go further with the project but is concerned about bad weather. She stated she would get it done and keep moving forward, but cannot get it all done within the 75 day timeframe. Construction drawings are moving forward for the entire project. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that staff told Ms. Kirkpatrick that the City would let her pave 450 North up to what she shows as the first street where she will have a Parade home. This will allow her to get her interior road done to the Parade home. The City still expects her to have 450 North completed. Staff prefers she not phase the project, but will allow her to do that one portion so she can get her Parade home done, and then she will finish the rest of 450 North as weather permits. ADJOURN TO EXECUTIVE SESSION: MOTION: A motion to adjourn to an executive session to discuss a property purchase was made by Council Member Gardner. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. Council Member Orton excused himself and left the meeting before the City Council reconvened in the Administration Conference Room for executive session. RECONVENE AND ADJO...

ADMINISTRATION CONFERENCE ROOM PRESENT: Mayor Daniel McArthur Council Member Rod Orton Council Member Gail Bunker Council Member Larry Gardner Council Member Bob Whatcott City Attorney Shawn Guzman City Manager Gary Esplin City Recorder Gay Cragun EXCUSED: Council Member Suzanne Allen OPENING: Mayor McArthur called the meeting to order and welcomed all present at 4:08 p.m. The pledge of allegiance was led by Mayor McArthur and the invocation was offered by Pastor Jimmy Keston. AWARD OF BID: Consider approval of purchase of materials not previously approved at the June 7, 2007 City Council meeting for the 138 kV line to the Green Valley area. City Manager Gary Esplin advised staff recommends award of the bid to Northern Supply in the amount of $160,524 for the insulators, and to HD Supply in the amount of $91,294 for the hardware. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to award the bid to Northern Supply in the amount of $160,524 for the insulators, and to HD Supply in the amount of $91.294 for the hardware. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. Energy Services Director Phil Solomon gave a brief update on current generation and market prices for power. DISCUSSION RE PLANS FOR PARK COMPLEX IN THE FIELDS AREA: Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins introduced the design staff. He advised that Joe Peart with Stantec has been hired to do construction drawings and design for the second phase. The first phase consisted of the softball facilities, a small neighborhood park and the water system. The second phase will consist of a large neighborhood park, large multipurpose play area, soccer/flag football fields, etc. The goal is to try and have a soccer facility four times the size of the Bluff Street facility that meets the need of our own community. The intent is to do the park with an agricultural theme. $2.4 million has been budgeted for the second phase. The entire site has been masterplanned. A number of meetings were held with the residents and a lot of input was received which has been incorporated into the planning process. St. George City Council Minutes June 14, 2007 Page Two Joe Peart reviewed opportunities, constraints and design considerations, and a diagram of the site. He advised that residents requested an organized run for dogs and a water play feature. He explained that water for the play features will be returned to the irrigation pond to be used for watering the lawns, etc. A buffer between the park and neighbors will be accomplished through use of native plant material. He suggested the name of the park be displayed on a silo. He reviewed the proposed water features. He stated that while $2.4 has been budgeted for the second phase, the cost is $2.8 million, which does not include the trail or plant material along the buffer. A decision has not been made on whether to light the facility. Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins commented that he hoped the County would participate in the cost of Phase 3. Council Member Bunker inquired about the location of the restrooms in relation to the awards area. Mr. Peart replied that the restrooms are pre-fab to same money. A portico attached to the restrooms will provide shade for the mothers to watch their children play, and while this does not conjure up the best image, with the proximity and right kind of screening, there should not be a problem. The restroom is a unisex family restroom. Council Member Gardner suggested the entrance be double loaded for parking at least on one side if not both sides. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that this entrance would be completed in the next phase. The entrance for this phase is off Horseman?s Park Road, with a right turn into the parking area. The entrance could be moved to the west to provide an opportunity for double loaded parking. Mr. Peart replied that this could be done. Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins commented that the intent is to stay as close to the budget as possible with value engineering. City Manager Gary Esplin stated he would like to see the trail around the top of the park and plants along the buffer. Mr. Peart said he would do a cost estimate. Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins advised that the City will be building five parks this budget year, and maybe there would be excess from one of the parks that could be put toward the trail and plants for this park. Mr. Peart asked for direction with regard to starting the construction drawings so that another meeting can be scheduled with the neighborhood. Millie Cockerill advised she would inform the public via the City?s internet page that the plan is ready for them to come in and look at. St. George City Council Minutes June 14, 2007 Page Three Mr. Perkins commented the project will be out to bid in August with construction beginning right after that. Mr. Peart advised that active turf area will be overseeded with hybrid bermuda, and the rest of the lawn area would be fescue. Council Member Whatcott expressed concern that the project would be under construction during the Senior Games, one of the busiest times of year. Mr. Peart advised that staff made a decision to go ahead and get the landscaping portion of the project completed at the front end while the contractor is working on the hardscape, play features, and water features. It is best to get all the landscaping done while the weather is good. Council Member Gardner inquired how much dirt would have to be moved in order to make the play fields playable. Mr. Perkins replied that the play fields are fairly close to grade now. Mr. Esplin commented that the topsoil was good too. Mr. Peart advised that the rough grade is about 32,000 cubic yards. REVIEW OF MASTER PLANNING EFFORTS AT THE WASTEWATER RECLAMATION FACILITY: Water Services Director Barry Barnum distributed maps of the site. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested that issues to be discussed should include mixing uses, traffic, access, costs, and the City?s potential use of the facility. Mr. Barnum advised that a paint ball course is already in use, but is slacking off. There is an area for linemen to practice climbing poles, a materials boneyard, an RV parking area, a City tree farm, a KDXU radio tower, an irrigation boneyard and a sweeper pit. The proposed use is for an RC flying field. Council Member Whatcott inquired if there was potential for the tree farm to expand. Mr. Barnum replied it could be expanded to the north. Mayor McArthur advised he told the applicants that use of this area would be subject to availability. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that once they located there and built their improvements, it would be difficult to ask them to move. Various locations were discussed for use as the RC flying field. Council Member Whatcott commented the City did not want to limit its ability for future expansion of its own uses in this area. St. George City Council Minutes June 14, 2007 Page Four Council Member Gardner suggested that perhaps the City would want to raise some of its own turf there. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that if would make sense to do just that. Council Member Orton commented he wanted the applicants to know that the City would accommodate them. Mayor McArthur advised that the applicants asked if the City could help them in any way, and he told them they could not expect help from the City except for perhaps some road base. Mr. Barnum advised that it will cost the applicants a couple hundred thousand dollars to build their RC flying facility. He inquired if he should direct the applicants to the area west of the sweeper pit. Mr. Esplin suggested locating the applicants as far west as possible to save area for the tree farm and future sod farm, if feasible. Council Member Orton commented he would feel comfortable letting staff make the decision where to place the applicant. City Manager Gary Esplin advised there is only one access to the site. Council Member Orton commented that while true, it was a good entrance to the entire area. Mayor McArthur commented that work is required where the road comes off the main road, as it is dusty and dirty. He suggested that a decision be made quickly as the applicants have to move from the old CAA airport in August. DISCUSSION RE TEMPLE SPRINGS AND POSSIBLE USES OF IRRIGATION WATER: City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the Temple Springs are located on private property. They are hard to develop because they are scattered around. They are located on property owned by Andy Leavitt where the new liquor store will be built. He explained that the springs are collected and piped to the Temple for irrigation use. Water Services Director Barry Barnum explained that the Temple Springs are producing 50 gallons per minute, but after Mr. Leavitt installed a trench on the property the flow dropped to half. The LDS Church would like to give the City its rights in the Temple Springs, its collection system, and easements on the property to the spring collection water tank and pipe through town in exchange for a connection to the City?s pressurized irrigation system from Snow Park. There is a place where they can easily make this connection to their existing system. According to a study performed by Sunrise Engineering, their irrigation requirement is half of what their water right is. They would like to use the pressurized irrigation system to irrigate the temple grounds, the Temple Apartments, parking lot, stake center to the east, and chapel on 400 East. St. George City Council Minutes June 14, 2007 Page Five Council Member Gardner suggested the Temple Springs water could be used to water the Town Square. Mr. Barnum advised that the LDS Church also owns two parcels of land. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the City could not upgrade the system without owning the land. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised there was a transient problem on the land. Mr. Esplin commented the City would like to build a park on this property. He stated the City is always looking for water but needs to make sure it is getting value for value. He suggested that talks begin about securing the property, even if it has to be bought outside of the water rights. He suggested Mr. Barnum move forward after obtaining an independent value of the water and showing that the City is giving an equal value in return. Mr. Barnum advised he would pursue the matter. DISCUSSION ON THE REUSE CENTER AND PROPOSED USE FOR LANDSCAPE DEBRIS: Public Works Director Larry Bulloch enumerated the uses provided at the Reuse Center: recycling of concrete, asphalt and chips, green waste, and selling compost. Over 200 landscapers regularly use the Reuse Center and deposit about 7,900 tons of green waste a year. Of that 7,900 tons 1,700 cannot be used because it consists of oleanders, palm fronds, etc. which cannot be chipped. This has become a problem. There are two solutions - don?t accept it, or accept it and charge them to dispose of the non-reusable material. The City would have to haul it to the landfill if it chose to accept the non-reusable material. Currently Allied Waste hauls all materials to the landfill for the City but they do not give good service, and the Reuse Center ends up having several days of material sitting around. Allied is contracted to haul it to the landfill for the District at $62.00 a load. It is not profitable for them so they don?t like to do it, and City staff has to complain to get them to come out and pick it up. If the City agrees to provide this additional service, it is recommended that the City do it by buying a truck and charging $25.00 a ton for residential non-compostable material, and $40.00 for commercial. This would give the City $68,000 in revenue each year, which is enough to buy the truck. Randy Halverson has also approached the District and asked them if the City can haul all of its green waste and have them pay the City instead of Allied. They agreed to approach the Board. If approved, the City would receive another $64,000 a year. It is estimated that the service would cost $35,000 annually to operate, plus buying a truck for $90,000 every five years or so, and the District will let the City use their containers. Mayor McArthur commented it costs $23.00 a ton to dump at the landfill. Randy Halverson advised that 80% of the landscapers have no problem with paying a fee to deposit their non-reusable material as this saves them a long trip to the landfill. There is a scale at the Reuse Center to weigh the material. The City will invoice them. St. George City Council Minutes June 14, 2007 Page Six City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the figures did not include new personnel. Mr. Halverson replied that it can be done with existing personnel. Council Member Whatcott suggested that the Reuse Center be relandscaped. Millie Cockerill advised that it is on her list to do. City Manager Gary Esplin advised he asked Mr. Bulloch to include a landscaped median in the cost to redo Brigham Road, and the City will include new landscaping at the Reuse Center as part of this project. He stated that the median project on St. George Blvd. has been so successful, he would suggest doing a landscaped median project each year. With regard to the proposal suggested by Mr. Bulloch, the City would need to front the cost of the truck. Mr. Bulloch replied that the City will receive enough revenue in the first year to purchase the truck. Mr. Esplin advised he would put the item on the agenda for action. Mr. Bulloch advised that on River Road the City is ready to add an additional left turn lane northbound to St. George Blvd. by modifying improvements to the Ruby River parking lot. They will lose one parking stall. A change order in the amount of $89,440 is needed to the Mall Drive median contract in order to add this improvement. Council Member Bunker inquired about progress in connecting 450 North Street. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that nothing can be done at this point until adjacent property develops, but they have no intention of giving any right-of-way for the through street. Ms. Kirkpatrick has created an illegal subdivision. ADJOURN TO EXECUTIVE SESSION: MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to adjourn to an executive session to discuss reasonably imminent litigation. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Bunker - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. RECONVENE: MOTION: A motion to reconvene was made by Council Member Orton. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. St. George City Council Minutes June 14, 2007 Page Five MISCELLANEOUS DISCUSSIONS: A brief discussion was held with regard to dump stations. City Manager Gary Esplin reported on a settlement with Washington County to settle outstanding financial issues. The County proposes giving the City $1.4 million to settle these outstanding issues. Budget and Financial Planning Manager Deanna Brklacich advised that the fund the City is most concerned with is the Wells Dairy EDA fund. The City felt it was not getting the funds due it. After meeting with the new County Treasurer, the settlement was offered. The new County Treasurer is very sincere and concerned about making sure he administers all the EDA monies appropriately. City Manager Gary Esplin commented staff feels it is now getting its fair share of what it should have gotten under the administration of the former County Treasurer.

City Council Minutes 03/06/2008:
...y and flexibility in the policy. Brent Bluth, representing Trust Lands Administration, stated their concerns are with the Atkinville Interchange. The policy by and large meets everything existing, but there were 11 variances to what was adopted in their access management plan. He stated they wanted to make sure which document prevailed. He stated they were confident they could work with staff as the variances are minimal. Ed Baca commented the policy was a long time in coming considering the growth which has taken place. He encouraged adoption of the policy. Tyler Hoskins, Hoskins Engineering, endorsed the document and stated he was familiar with the principles and guidelines and it has been put together using standards typical across the nation. He stated his opinion of the policy is that it is black and white, and there has to be some leeway and a common sense factor. He stated it is a great starting point, but it should St. George City Council Minutes March 6, 2008 Page Four be looked into further. He stated it will put a strain on traditional neighborhood design, and perhaps there should be a separate section in the policy for traditional neighborhood design. Mayor McArthur replied it has been the history of the City Council to try and be accommodating while doing what is best for the citizens. The policy is at least somewhere to start. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to approve the ordinance. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Pike. Council Member Almquist suggested the motion reflect the concerns expressed about working out the timing of implementation with staff. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch suggested that implementation of the policy become effective by the final plat stage. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that the preliminary plat requires a public hearing, and changes should not be approved after the public hearing. He suggested that implementation become effective prior to the preliminary plat. If the preliminary plat has already been approved, then it would be exempt from the policy. Mr. Bulloch replied that staff would support this. AMENDED MOTION: Council Member Bunker amended her motion to include the provision that implementation of the policy would take place before preliminary plat approval. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Pike. Council Member Almquist commented it would be best for developers to know as early on as possible to what specifications they have to build. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Pike - aye Council Member Almquist - aye Council Member Shakespeare - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. APPROVAL OF POLICY: Consider approval of the access management policy. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Almquist to approve the policy. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Pike. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution abandoning a public drainage easement on Lot 105 in Meadow Valley Estates Phase 1. Quality Development applicant. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the applicant has met with JUC. Staff recommends approval. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to approve the resolution. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Shakespeare - aye Council Member Pike - aye Council Member Almquist - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. St. George City Council Minutes March 6, 2008 Page Five RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution approving the UAMPS Payson Absolute Assignment. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the City would like to assign its entitlements and shares and responsibilities in the Payson power project to UAMPS members. This relieves the City of its current obligations. The agreement is absolute to make sure the City is out of the project and has no future responsibilities or entanglements. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Pike to approve the resolution. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Pike - aye Council Member Almquist - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Shakespeare - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. AGREEMENT: Consider approval of the UAMPS Payson Power Project Absolute Assignment Agreement. Energy Services Director Phil Solomon explained this is the corollary agreement to the resolution just approved. The City is signing agreements with several different entities in UAMPS to assume the City?s debt: Lehi, Ephraim, Hurricane, Hyrum, Strawberry Electric Service District, and Washington City. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Almquist to approve the agreement. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a zone change request from Mining & Grazing to PD Residential, PD Commercial, Open Space, Airport Supporting Business, Airport Vicinity Industrial, Commercial Mixed Use, C-2, R-1-10, R-1-12 and R-3 on approximately 2,432 acres located in the southeast corner of St. George, south of the proposed replacement airport and north of the Utah/Arizona border. Curt Gordon, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson stated staff thought when this public hearing was scheduled that the development agreement would be ready, but it is not. He suggested the public hearing be held but the matter continued until the development agreement is ready. A general plan amendment for this property was approved last August. The Planning Commission recommends approval of the zone change. There are ten zoning districts in the request and it is a large, complex and complicated development. The Ft. Pierce Wash runs through the middle of the property. The Southern Parkway also bisects the property. The applicants propose an 18 hole golf course along the Ft. Pierce Wash, a portion of which is on City property. They have done a traffic impact study. Recently the City and UDOT requested their northern interchange be moved 1300 feet to the south for better spacing between interchanges, and this has affected some of their zoning districts. The applicants and staff have been working on this for a year and have worked through floodplain issues, road layout, and trails. All traffic crossings will require bridges through the Ft. Pierce Wash. Proposed schools and churches will have to be accessed off side streets and not from major arterial roads. There is a trail network. Staff feels the applicant has done a good job in staying out of the floodplain. There is no disturbance within the ten year floodplain, and within the 100 year floodplain there will be a golf course. The proposed resort hotel is a concept only at this time and will require a height variance. It will have to be brought back at a later date for consideration. A portion of the 100 year floodplain encroaches onto proposed commercial property, but not residential. An alternate use for the 38 acre portion of golf course could be industrial, but that will require the applicants to come back for an amendment to their application. For now it is assumed the acreage shown as golf course will be golf course. When the City Council approved the density bonus overlay area, this property was removed based on the applicant?s commitment to follow the same intent. They verbally stated they would provide neighborhood parks as part of the subdivision process, and will include this in the development agreement. They will provide parks in all residential areas St. George City Council Minutes March 6, 2008 Page Six by providing the land and improving the park. There are 6,317 dwelling units in the project. He then presented a power point presentation including an overview, issues, slope map, land use map, land use plan, walking distances, open space and trails, and circulation. Council Member Bunker inquired if there were any blue clay in the area, and if all drainage drained into the Ft. Pierce Wash. Mr. Nicholson replied that all drainage does drain into the Ft. Pierce Wash, and soil testing will be required before subdivision plats are presented to the City council. Curt Gordon, representing Desert Canyons Development, advised they have done a thorough analysis of the soils and there are some clay soils. Appropriate engineering methods will be used to deal with them. The circulation plan had to be changed slightly due to moving the interchange. This has also affected the loop road system. No increase in density is being asked for. He stated they would have a draft of the development agreement to the City next week. Council Member Almquist asked if there were a preferred direction for landing at the new airport. Mr. Gordon replied that departure would take place over their western boundary, with a golf course planned underneath this area. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. City Manager Gary Esplin advised he would schedule this item on a future City Council agenda along with the development agreement. PUBLIC HEARING/PRELIMINARY PLAT: Public hearing to consider approval of the preliminary plat for Sage Meadows with 91 single family lots located at 2000 South and 3000 East. Judd Palmer, applicant. Jay Sandberg advised that the development agreement for this project was approved at the last City Council meeting. The project has 15% open space in order to get the R-1-10 density. There will be a future park as discussed at the last meeting. Full improvements along the west half of 3000 East are being required. There is an irrigation ditch in the westerly portion of the subdivision that will have to be piped. In one corner of the subdivision there are two lots which front the street and the driveways will have to be positioned as far away from the intersection as possible. There will be a connection to the adjacent Fieldstone Estates, but with a slight offset. The developers and engineers have agreed to work it out to match the road as it will not affect the subdivision. Council Member Shakespeare commented she believed 3000 East should be a seven lane road with deceleration lanes into all the subdivisions before they are developed. City Manager Gary Esplin replied the road master plan would have to be looked at and a determination made that there is less right-of-way than needed for a seven lane road. The new road master plan will be presented to the City Council shortly. Staff also has to determine the effect of the subdivision on the right-of-way, and purchase that right-of-way and anything extra beyond what is required of the developer in order to put in his development. With regard to this particular project, there is some latitude because there is open space along 3000 East so the right of way is there if needed. However, this would cut down on the needed open space for the development. A funding mechanism would have to be figured out to pay for that right-of-way all the way down 3000 East. He stated that this project could proceed because there were options. Jay Sandberg advised there is a transmission line along 3000 East and a drainage ditch. The City is already asking for five lanes plus an additional area for the canal and equestrian trail on th east side of the road. Two extra lanes could be accommodated, but right now they are not on the master road plan so staff does not have the authority to require seven lanes. He stated that staff would look at this issue. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Pike to approve the preliminary plat. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Shakespeare. St. George City Council Minutes March 6, 2008 Page Seven VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. City Manager Gary Esplin inquired if the dedication of park land was made within the first phase, as requested at the last City Council meeting. Tim Frei replied that this was included in the development agreement. PUBLIC HEARING/PRELIMINARY PLAT: Public hearing to consider approval of the preliminary plat for Towne Storage St. George #1 with two commercial lots located at approximately 2000 East Riverside Drive. Jason Tuttle, representative. Jay Sandberg advised the site is zoned commercial. An old floodplain map used encompassed the entire area, but a new floodplain map shows the Middleton Wash in the channel where it should be. The project will still require a floodplain development permit. The main condition discussed with the Planning Commission is there will be some natural erosion protection along the bank for aesthetics. Zachary Renstrom explained improvements are only being made to Lot 2 at this time. When Lot 1 comes in for site plan approval, flood plain issues and landscaping will be dealt with at that time. The buildings are being built on Lot 2 only at this time. Council Member Shakespeare commented she hoped the building would be pleasing to the eye. Mr. Renstrom replied this has already been addressed in the site plan and landscape plan. Council Member Almquist commented that the Planning Commission discussed the door color and stucco color. City Planner Ray Snyder advised the site plan and landscape plan have already been approved by the City Council, along with elevations, colors, the HVAC unit, roof, etc. City Manager Gary Esplin inquired how erosion protection would be handled since only one lot was being developed at this time. Mr. Renstrom replied that the portion of floodplain and landscaping will just be on the lower lot, and when Lot 1 is developed they will have to repeat this entire process and provide erosion protection that ties to Lot 2. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to approve the preliminary plat. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/PRELIMINARY PLAT: Public hearing to consider approval of the preliminary plat for Whisper Ridge Phase 3 with eight single family lots located near the end of Indian Trail Road above Indian Hills Drive. Cary Blake, applicant. Jay Sandberg commented that the Hillside Review Board approved this request in 2005. The site is zoned R-1-10, and one large lot. A temporary turnaround is being required until the project ties to Indian Hills Drive. As the site is developed, more improvements to Indian Hills Drive will be required. The site has clay and special geological conditions. The layout was reduced due to the amount of cuts and fill, as approved by the Hillside Board. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. Council Member Bunker commented the site was located on an ancient landslide. She inquired if two geotechnical reports should be required. Jay Sandberg stated staff would be more than happy to have someone else take a look at the issue. AGEC did the geotech report, and they have done a good job in the past. City Manager Gary Esplin commented if the City required a second report, it would have to St. George City Council Minutes March 6, 2008 Page Eight pay for it. He stated staff could look through the geotech report and see if they see any red flags. However, just to say the City wants a second opinion would be difficult. The City?s liability would not be as much as the developer and engineer on the project. Council Member Allen inquired if there was a note on the plat indicating the site is an ancient landslide. Mr. Sandberg replied a note is included on the plat which says the geotech report is available and the purchaser should review it. There are many geologic conditions - the ancient landslide is just one of them. A restriction has been made on the amount of landscaping allowed because of water, and the lots are large. However, he stated he did not think the applicant would have a problem if the City asked for a second opinion. City Manager Gary Esplin asked Mr. Sandberg to ask the applicant to be present when the final plat is approved so the City Council can ask him this question. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Pike to approve the preliminary plat subject to staff review and consideration as to whether a second geotechnical opinion is needed prior to final plat approval. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. SET PUBLIC HEARINGS: Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised that the Planning Commission recommended that public hearings be scheduled for March 20, 2008 at 5:00 p.m. to consider (1) an amended final plat for Creekside Homes, (2) an amendment to Title 10,Chapter 7, St. George City Code, to incorporate child family support facility as a conditional use, and (3) a zone change from R-1-10 to C-3 on 1.18 acres located at 2860 East and 750 North. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Almquist to set the public hearings as recommended by the Planning Commission. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Pike. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised that the Planning Commission noticed a public hearing to be held April 3, 2008 to consider vacation of a portion of 200 West Street for the new Fifth District Court building. He advised that the Planning Commission denied a request for a zone change for the Cottam property located on South River Road, and the applicant has not yet decided if they will appeal this to the City Council. The Planning Commission also denied a request for a zone change between 200 and 300 South on the east side of the I-15. The applicant has not decided if they will appeal this to the City Council. FINAL PLAT: Todd Jacobsen explained the purpose for the amended final plat for Bloomington Knolls Townhomes Phase 2 is so new residential lots and a swimming pool can be located on former tennis court sites. Some limited common area will be adjusted as well, and this adjustment will be made on the plat. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Almquist to approve the final plat and authorize the Mayor to sign it. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. CDBG BLOCK GRANT FUNDING: Consider requests for funding under the 2008-09 Community Development Block Grant program.

...GEORGE CITY COUNCIL MINUTES BUDGET WORK MEETING MAY 20, 2008, 4:00 P.M. ADMINISTRATION CONFERENCE ROOM PRESENT: Mayor Daniel McArthur Council Member Suzanne Allen Council Member Gil Almquist Council Member Gail Bunker Council Member Jon Pike Council Member Gloria Shakespeare City Manager Gary Esplin Deputy City Recorder Judith Mayfield OPENING: The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Council Member Almquist and an opening prayer was given by Council Member Bunker. BUDGET PRESENTATION: Community Development Director, Bob Nicholson stated that they had met the 10% reduction in the department budget for the 2008-09 fiscal year. He explained that there was a significant reduction in the account that covered consulting services. He said that in the past they had done some long range master planning by area and that in the coming year they would be concentrating on the Tonaquint area General Plan. He said that they had also reduced budget amounts for the Chamber of Commerce and for the Washington County Economic Development Council. Mr. Nicholson went through a list of tasks that are planned for the upcoming fiscal year which included Zoning Code updates; Tonaquint Area General plan update; Sign Code amendments; IHC/City Housing Project; Subdivision Ordinance amendments; CLG (Historic Preservation) program; CDGB projects; public assistance and zoning administration; and other important tasks/projects.

City Council Minutes 04/24/2008:
...UTES SPECIAL MEETING APRIL 24, 2008, 4:00 p.m. CITY COUNCIL CHAMBERS/ADMINISTRATION CONFERENCE ROOM PRESENT: Mayor Daniel McArthur Council Member Jon Pike Council Member Gloria Shakespeare Council Member Gail Bunker Council Member Gil Almquist City Manager Gary Esplin Assistant to City Manager Marc Mortensen Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston City Recorder Gay Cragun EXCUSED: Council Member Suzanne Allen City Attorney Shawn Guzman OPENING: Mayor McArthur called the meeting to order and welcomed all in attendance. He then led the pledge of allegiance and the invocation was offered by Council Member Bunker. HILLSIDE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT: Consider approval of a hillside development permit for rough grading for the future alignment of the airport access road (west side) and the construction of a water line to provide construction water for the airport grading project. Cathy Hasfurther explained that the permit includes realignment of the road and two water tank sites to serve the lower area of the valley and the new airport. The Hillside Board recommends approval subject to (1) from the radius on the proposed roadway that is close to the hillside, cut slopes can be steepened to 1:1 instead of 1.5:1 to provide a 10' shoulder for rock fall potential; and (2) each tank site needs to mitigate the fill slopes and provide a natural look by painting and stacking rock. She advised that the new road will serve as a secondary access to the new airport. The right-of-way width is 60' but asphalt width will be 42'. The road will eventually have curb on both sides, but not until development occurs. It will not be completely built at this time. Council Member Almquist expressed concern that the road was being designed to go up the hillside when it currently exists closer to the flat ground to the north. Ms. Hasfurther replied that the current radius does not meet City standards and the road is being tucked up against the hill so the developers can develop the property between the road and the ridge to the north. Council Member Bunker suggested a field trip be taken to the site. Council Member Almquist provided a drawing of suggested road placement to Ms. Hasfurther and asked that she review it to see if it would work. He commented that if the only reason the hill is being cut into is so the property can be developed, this is setting an awful precedent. Curt Gordon, representing Desert Canyons, advised they have the property under contract with SITLA to develop. They are also partnering with the City to build a water line to the new airport. He stated the way the road is now designed is optimum for St. George City Council Minutes April 24, 2008 Page Two everyone as it responds to traffic criteria, design speed of the road, is single loaded, and from their analysis cuts to the hillside will not be seen from the valley. The road is located down in a valley. If the road is placed as proposed by Council Member Almquist, a larger cut will have to be made on the east side. He clarified that they do not intend to align the road all the way up, but just grade it to what is planned as a future rock park and then it will transition into the existing road. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Pike to approve the hillside development permit subject to a City Council field trip to the site so Council Member Almquist?s concerns are met. Council Member Almquist clarified his concern stems from the fact that everyone will want an exception to the hillside ordinance if one is made in this case. Additionally, Council Member Shakespeare has stated that she would like the hillside ordinance to be looked at. Cuts and fills also need to be reviewed. He stated he was in favor of the road to the airport and would vote in favor of it, but his opposition is to the giant cuts in some places which are not acceptable. He recommended the City Council proceed with the motion subject to the recommendations discussed by Ms. Hasfurther. Council Member Pike suggested that the City Council move ahead with the motion, as long as staff approves the plan. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. Mayor McArthur advised that a site visit will be scheduled for Tuesday, April 29 at 4:00 p.m. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. HILLSIDE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT: Consider approval of a hillside development permit for the future construction of the Flying J frontage road. Cathy Hasfurther explained the property is located at Exit 4 in Bloomington. She advised that the Hillside Review Board recommended approval subject to (1) removal of the knob to expose the natural hillside look in the area, (2) staff to review and address the drainage from the hillside area, and (3) round all cut slopes at the top and sides to blend back into the natural hillside slopes. Aron Baker explained that the current intersection will be right-in right-out only. The new truck access will be pushed up 200 feet to help solve the interchange issue. He explained the applicant is still working with the BLM and Fish and Wildlife on mitigation. An environmental document is being prepared right now. A fence along the preserve at the top of the cut will likely be part of the mitigation. Council Member Almquist requested that the road profiles be fixed with regard to slope cuts so they were not so misleading. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to approve the hillside development permit subject to the recommendations of the Hillside Review Board. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Pike. St. George City Council Minutes April 24, 2008 Page Thrree VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. ARBOR DAY: Mayor McArthur announced that this Saturday is Arbor Day. He invited citizens to attend the festivities at the Tonaquint Nature Center. Free trees will be given away from 9:00 a.m. to noon. DON?T WASTE DIXIE DAY: Assistant to the City Manager Marc Mortensen advised that this Saturday is also the Second Annual Don?t Waste Dixie Day. City crews will be assisting residents on the east side of Main Street from 7:00 to noon with clean-up. DISCUSSION CONCERNING THE SIGN ORDINANCE: Tracy Ence advised he represented a group of businesses who are having problems in the down market and need help and understanding from the City. He stated they spent a long time going through the Sign Ordinance and there are areas within it which have problems and are affecting them. Scott Leishman, architect and marketing manager for Ence Homes, advised that a banner advertising the Seven Hills project was taken down and in a short time drive-by attendance dropped 50%. He advised he was elected by a committee to help draft changes to the ordinance. Steve from Rainbow Signs advised there are gray areas in the ordinance subject to code enforcement interpretation, and they would like these eliminated as much as possible. He requested that promotional development sign be defined, open house sign be defined, lot sign defined and allowed, two signs allowed for residential development with a maximum of 48 sq. ft. of signage, etc. He requested that 4 x 8 or smaller signs be allowed without a permit, fence and wall signs and banners limited by the size of the wall, action flags allowed in front of developments, and one off-premise sign allowed. He requested that lot signs in commercial or residential areas be allowed without a permit, as well as action flags without a permit. He suggested that only one generic real estate off-premise directional sign be allowed per corner. Assistant to the City Manager Marc Mortensen commented that most people now sell their homes on-line and using signage is antiquated. Mr. Leishman replied that advertising sales is still driven by drive-by advertising. Steve from Rainbow Signs advised the realtors would like five open house signs to be allowed. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson commented that the Sign Review Board has not seen these suggestions. He advised while there is room for change, he suggested some of the suggestions go too far. Mayor McArthur commented he felt the changes should first go to the Sign Review Board for their recommendation. Scott Leishman advised that time is of the essence as the selling season is drawing to a close. St. George City Council Minutes April 24, 2008 Page Four Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston expressed concern with the proposed off-premise signs. This is a slippery slope and if one type of business is allowed to have them, all businesses will want them. Enforceability is a big issue. Council Member Jon Pike commented that realtors have to have off-premise directional and open house signs. Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston explained the City now allows off-premise signage if it is located on property that is owned by the sign owner and is part of and contiguous to the development. She advised that having one generic realtor sign at a corner would create mass confusion and she was not sure this was a workable solution. Steve Leishman advised the suggestion for open house signs came from the Henderson, Nevada sign code. Council Member Bunker suggested that Code Enforcement go easy on residential development until the sign ordinance changes are reviewed and approved. Council Member Shakespeare agreed. Tracy Ence commented that the Code Enforcement Officers are doing their jobs, but commercial developments have more opportunity to sell than residential developments because of the sign ordinance. Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston commented that Code Enforcement has tried to be careful and has allowed some signs to remain as long as they pose no threat to safety. It is hard for Code Enforcement Officers to know what the City Council wants them to be flexible on. Council Member Shakespeare and Mayor McArthur commented they would like action flags to be allowed and signs at each residential development entrance until the sign ordinance is finalized. Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston advised that Code Enforcement will hold off unless there is a safety issue or the sign or flag is falling apart. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised the Sign Review Board will meet May 14. He suggested that promotional signs be limited to two for the next 30 days or until the ordinance is finalized as long as they are on premise. Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston replied that she will direct Code Enforcement to not take action at this point, except for safety, until the ordinance is finalized. Code Enforcement Officer Joe Van Huss advised that City Manager Gary Esplin already advised him to back off on developments and only enforce safety issues. The meeting then adjourned to the Administration Conference Room. CONNECTION OF DESERT HILLS SUBDIVISION T...

...HR Department Responsibilities; Recruitment, Hiring and Retention; Payroll Administration; Employee Benefits; Compensation, Performance, Organization, Development, Employee Relations; and Administrative Duties and Challenges. City Attorney Shawn Guzman presented a powerpoint presentation that covered the following topics: Legal Services - Organization Chart; Legal Services; Legal Services - Criminal Cases; Justice Court Reimbursements; Court Reimbursements; Traffic School Reimbursements; Legal Services - Insurance; and Legal Services - Claims and Legal Services Staff. Budget and Financial Planning Manager Deanna Brklacich presented an Administrative Services Organization Chart. The City has approximately 30,000 vendors and that the Purchasing Department receives approximately 650-850 invoices per month. The City allows departments to purchase items as needed. One of the goals for Connie Hood, Purchasing Manager, is to train employees on how to purchase items they need. She handed out a Budget Process Overview and reviewed the budget process. Additionally, she explained that there have been 3 flood events in the past few years. It took 5 years to complete the 2005 flood project which had 7 projects. The total cost to rebuild after the flood was approximately $11 million. The City received $4 million from FEMA, $3.27 million from a State grant, various other small grants and the City’s grant match was $2 million. The 2010 floods had 80 projects and the cost was $8.5 million; FEMA will fund $6.6 million, there will be no funds received from the State, the City received $600,000 in Federal Highway Funds and the City’s portion was $1.3 million. St. George City Council Minutes March 20, 2014 Page Four City Manager Gary Esplin everyone of the projects involves about a full years worth of work. The funds to repair the damage were unfunded and unbudgeted. Water Services Director Scott Taylor presented a powerpoint presentation covering the following topics: Mission Statement; Mottos; Water Services Department Info; Culinary Water Source (Acre - Ft) 2013; Water Services Department Core Management Team; Water Services Organization Chart; and Challenges. Fire Chief Robert Stoker presented a powerpoint presentation covering the following topics: Mission Statement; Organizational Chart; Reserve Staff; Fire Districts & Response Areas; Fire Response Areas; Incident Response & Per Day; Fire Stations. He explained that the City is rated 4 for it’s fire protection. One issue they are facing is that the Ledges is rated 10, which Is the lowest level, since there is no fire station in that area. In October, the City Council approved an automatic aid agreement with Winchester Hills to assist with fire prevention. He stated that the City will run into the same problem in Little Valley and Desert Canyons. Councilmember Bowcutt inquired could a fire station be built in the Ft. Pearce Industrial Park area that could service the Little Valley area. Chief Stoker answered that staff is looking into that. He continued with the powerpoint presentation covering the following topics: Fire Department Apparatus; Engines; Reserve Fire Engines; Ladder Trucks & Squads; Training Programs; Fire Calls; Emergency Medical Technicians; Southwest Regional Response Team; Emergency Management; City Wide AED Placement; Assisting Other City Departments; Mutual Aid to Other Fire Departments; Fire Prevention and St. George City Fire Department. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that in order to get hired as a full time firefighter, the individual has to be a reserve firefighter for at least 6 months with the City. All volunteers are fully certified and are required to attend training. Councilmember Randall asked if the department would ever go from BLS certified to ALS certified. Chief Stoker stated there is a plan to do that. While a number of the firefighters are advanced EMT’s and some that are paramedics, all full time firefighters are EMT certified. Mayor Pike inquired if a firefighter from another entity could be eligible for a full time position. Chief Stoker advised the individual would have to live in the City and would have to be a reserve firefighter. There were some firefighters from Salt Lake City that wanted to do a lateral transfer. Doing that creates a number of internal inequities. City Manager Gary Esplin explained as the reserve firefighters move up through the ranks, they learn what it is to be a volunteer firefighter and to appreciate the dedication and appreciation of the department. Police Chief Marlon Stratton advised that the training room being used for today’s meeting, becomes an Emergency Operations Center, in the event of a disaster. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that does not happen very often, the last time was during the 2010 flood. It is an amazing experience to be involved in.

St. George City Council Minutes March 20, 2014 Page Five Mayor Pike inquired if there is evidence that shows the school resource officers have prevented crimes in the schools. Chief Stratton stated yes, there has been a lot done to prevent different crimes. The officers work closely with the School Administration and routinely run drills in the event of a active shooter. Mayor Pike called for a short recess. Energy Services Director Phillip Solomon stated that St. George is becoming the largest municipal power provider in the State. There are 3 types of power utilities: co-ops, investor-owned utilities and municipal power. He presented a powerpoint presentation which covered the following topics: Energy Services; City of St. George Energy Services Department; Energy Services Department Organization Chart; St. George Energy Services Back Ground; and Resource Allocation 2013 and 2014 Substation, Construction. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that with regard to resource allocation, the more power the City can generate, the less transmission cost there will be. In the past, the City had contingency plans for black outs. Nine months out of the year, the City can generate power itself. Mr. Solomon stated that during the peak period, it is nice to turn on the generators to follow the peak. Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins presented a powerpoint presentation that covered the following topics: Leisure Services Department Organization Chart; Mission Statement; Dixie Center; Map of the Dixie Center; Community Arts & Exhibits; Park Planning (Design).

Three did not qualify at this time. He assigned points to each request based on adopted criteria. The City received notice that it received $454,626 this year, a 4% increase over last year. Dixie Care and Share requested funding this year, but did not have a site, and it will take more than a year to arrange their funding, and this money has to be awarded for needs in the coming year. He advised he will prepare an annual action plan which will be made available to the public for 30 days, then brought back to the City Council for final action. Jay Maxfield, new Executive Director of the Care and Share, introduced himself. He explained that the Care and Share is running full, and the current site does not lend itself well for what it is trying to accomplish. Expansion is needed, as well as parking and a good traffic flow. They are working on the infestation problem and a possible solution is to use metal bunk beds with sealed mattresses. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the Care and Share has requested it be allowed to use the metal cots from the old jail. It was the consensus of the City Council to approve this request. Jay Maxfield advised they are looking for a new site and would like to stay close to services. He suggested the site of the Sunroc facility at 200 North 300 East. Katie Peterson, Executive Director of the Dove Center, thanked the City for its support and advised they had to turn away six mothers with children just this week because there is no capacity. Along with the City’s donation of $75,000, they will raise the remaining $58,000 needed to pay for the building to allow long term stability for client services. They also work with faith-based groups. Brian Maxfield advised the City also put in for the down payment assistance program. Councilmember Hughes inquired about the administration costs.

...MINUTES WORK MEETING AUGUST 10, 2006, 4:00 PM CITY COUNCIL CHAMBERS, ADMINISTRATION CONFERENCE ROOM PRESENT: Mayor Daniel McArthur Council Member Rod Orton Council Member Gail Bunker Council Member Suzanne Allen Council Member Larry Gardner City Manager Gary Esplin City Attorney Shawn Guzman City Recorder Gay Cragun EXCUSED: Council Member Bob Whatcott OPENING: The meeting convened in the City Council Chambers. Mayor McArthur called the meeting to order and welcomed all present. The pledge of allegiance was led by Larry Gardner and the invocation was offered by Alex Wilkie. PRESENTATIONS CONCERNING REQUESTS FOR CABLE FRANCHISES: BROADWEAVE: Steve Christensen, CEO of Broadweave Networks, advised that Broadweave?s specific focus is on new communities so that they can deploy fiber to home networks and deliver voice video and data over a single connection to a home at 1000 times the speed of cable and DSL. Broadweave was the first carrier to deploy primary line voice-over IP and is recognized as one of the top 100 broadband companies in the country. He then reviewed the background of telecommunications and cable law, and explained that in 1996 the federal Telecommunications Act defined the difference between big companies and smaller companies, setting forth the framework to deal with each of these two classes of carriers. He explained that the build-out requirement impacts the threshold decision of whether competitors can go into the market or not and prohibits smaller competitors from entering the market. He stated that the outdated cable law was not meant to apply to telephone companies. Build-out favors larger companies, and if build-out requirements are placed on smaller companies, they will simply bypass the city. The build-out requirement was originally intended to prevent economic redlining and exclusion of poorer areas from the build-out plans. The intent of the act is contradicted by its implications. He explained that the fallacy of the build-out requirement is that if there is not the requirement, service providers won?t deliver service to some areas of the city. The FCC has stated that municipalities are not supposed to regulate any services delivered by IP and IP service providers are not subject to local franchising authority. He stated the cable act of 1984 is obsolete and was never intended to regulate phone companies and was enacted when there was no viable satellite TV service. Broadweave?s position is that the specific build-out provisions of the cable act would not apply to Broadweave as it conflicts with telecom law, and telecom law expressly prohibits build-out requirements. The cable act gives municipalities local franchising authority and the flexibility to welcome both large and small competitors, however, with a build-out requirement he felt the City would exclude smaller providers and laws are being passed in Congress to enable companies to get a national franchise, without a build-out requirements, as it has been determined that a build-out requirement is bad for competition and not good for customers. He stated he hoped the City Council would rule in favor of welcoming both large and small companies and not apply a build-out requirement to any of the service providers. TRI-AXIS: Heath Snow, legal counsel for Tri-Axis, stated that competition would bring service to new areas without a build-out requirement, as this is what the country is based on. Tri-Axis was created by private development for the Sun River community by its developers in connection with a private party and its head-end facility is located here. Tri-Axis is currently providing the TV portion of its services through traditional means. The reason the company was created was to meet a need in the market. There is a need to allow for franchises, and Tri-Axis is working under a provisional franchise with the City. A build-out requirement would make it harder for Tri-Axis to compete. Tri-Axis has strong financial backing and can provide internet, phone and TV to residents and is supportive of the idea of allowing issuance of franchises without the build-out requirement. Ted Crowther, Technical Manager for Tri-Axis, commented that any decision the City Council makes today would be different in two to three years due to the changing nature of technology. QWEST: Jerry Fenn, President of Qwest, presented a power-point presentation. He requested a City-wide franchise. Qwest?s intention is to have a phased roll-out of services, deploying services as broadly and quickly as it can. As the demand for service grows, Qwest?s investment and deployment will grow. Competition from facilities-based providers will bring residents the benefits of competition. He stated he felt it was unfortunate the cable company would do anything within its power to avoid Qwest interrupting its monopoly in St. George, and any business with an unfettered ability to raise prices 7.5% annually would not want competition. He explained that competition would provide choice, lower prices, tailored packages, and better customer service. One cable provider with a monopoly provides little incentive to invest or innovate, and its past track record is poor in meeting its commitments. There is clear evidence of a 7.5% annual price increase. With regard to a build-out requirement, this position is being used by the cable company to protect its monopoly position. A build-out requirement for a second entry company is not financially viable as there is no assured revenue stream, no customers, and there can never be a level playing field. In response to the argument that without a build-out requirement cherry-picking will be engaged in, this is the same argument AT&T made when it was threatened in its long distance market - and look what happened to long distance rates. Qwest will not discriminate in the provision of cable services, and its track record of DSL service is a testimony. There is no historical evidence to suggest Qwest ever discriminated or would in the future, and it will place in an agreement a prohibition against discrimination. The real issue is the build-out requirement. The cable company suggests that it is only fair for Qwest and other new entrants to construct an identical cable network in a short time to every home in the city. They want to require an overbuild of network. In 1996 the FCC and the courts said this was nonsense and to require build-out is a barrier to entry. As a result, from 1996 to 2006 there has been robust competition in the telecom industry and multiple competitors and prices have dropped. A level playing field does not mean identical terms or conditions. The cable company has 100% of the market share and has a head-start with the network and customers. A level playing field is achieved when competition is encouraged with franchises with no build-out. Qwest currently has franchises without a build-out requirement with Salt Lake City and South Jordan, and is in negotiations with Sandy, West Jordan, Draper, Highland, Roy, and Taylorsville, and other cities in Washington County. The agreement with Salt Lake City says that if Qwest has 51% of the customers, it will agree to build-out. Qwest has invested over $38,000,000 in St. George over the last five years and is on the pathway to spend that much again within the next five years, including a commitment to build fiber redundancy into Southern Utah. To reiterate, from a legal standpoint a level playing field does not require identical agreements or a build-out requirement. A level playing field is best achieved when a government does not impose barriers and gives its citizens a choice. He stated he hoped the free market would determine the outcome. There is a trend moving toward statewide franchises. If a build-out is required, then the cable company can compete for voice and data customers as they offer a triple play, but Qwest could not go after cable customers with a similar product. It would be unfair to force this outcome and would not be in the public interest. He committed that Qwest would not serve just new development and would work with administration to give assurances of that and serve existing communities as well. Mary LaFaye, representing Qwest, advised that in the mid-90s, the only way Qwest could get into the Phoenix and Denver markets was with a build-out requirement. However, it quickly learned that this was not economically viable and had to negotiate out. ORANGE BROADBAND: Steve Urquhart, representing Orange Broadband, advised that while the Cable Act of 1984 may be obsolete, it is still the law, and any bills which may be before Congress do not trump the laws on the books. He stated that while he heard what the cherry pickers want to do to serve new growth in high density areas, they did not touch on the issue of upgrading the existing plants. Cable has tons of competition and has lost 25% of its customers over the last five years. Triple providers and Skyview are cutting deep into Charter?s subscribers, and Qwest already has far more customers than the cable company. Charter has fiber all over the city because there is competition, and Qwest does not because there is no competition for them. He stated that cherry picking was a horrible policy and contradicts current policy. The City has to concern itself with the issue of who are the winners and losers. Qwest would not have to abide by the same plan or provide uniform or equal services as they are built out to go to far more homes than Charter. While Charter has not done an excellent job, it has done a good job of putting fiber in the ground. He stated that he has heard if Qwest does not get its way Denver will not send any more money here. Denver does not have any money to send here because it is $15 billion in debt, and the way it is clearing off its debt is by not making capital investments. Orange will provide service to everyone and has real money and can provide first class telecommunication services to all neighborhoods. Build-out is a healthy policy. William Schuler, representing Orange Broadband, advised that the City Council will define ?business model? by which telecommunication services are deployed throughout St. George. The choice is a business model or one that allows cherry picking. Orange is under contract to purchase Charter. The policy of the City has been to require build-out. Others are saying that if the City requires build-out, they will not come. That is their choice. Orange is saying that it will come to St. George with committed capital to build out evenly throughout the community. In contrast to new providers who will cherry pick, Orange will commit to what it will deliver and when it will deliver it evenly through the community if the existing policy is continued. There is nothing that can be provided by any other network that Orange cannot provide to every citizen in St. George. Orange will offer video-on-demand by the end of next year, commercial data services, home networking, digital voice services, digital voice options, enhanced 911, and will expand the call center. Orange is willing to make a commitment because it has the money to devote and the technical ability to do. Steve Urquhart advised that the City has required uniform and equal provision of services, and Charter has a tremendous fiber optic backbone. All citizens will be treated as first-class citizens. He advised that Qwest had a poor record of standing up to its commitments, and is now in litigation with the State of New Mexico. Council Member Orton inquired what would happen if in two years Congress mandated elimination of the build-out requirement. Mr. Urquhart replied that Congress might or might not do this, but if they do, this is a risk that investors are willing to take. Orange Broadband is happy to run that risk. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that the City is waiting for concrete written proposals and specifics, and suggested that any rebuttals to what has been said or positions statements be put in writing and submitted to the City. Mayor McArthur commented that good points were made by all sides. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that if the City receives a request for a franchise, it will be scheduled on a City Council agenda. ADJOURN TO ADMINISTRATION CONFERENCE ROOM: Mayor McArthur advised that the meeting would continue in the Administration Conference Room. PRESENTATION ON THE PARKS AND TRAILS MAS...

... are other requests as well for a new sweeper and other equipment, and for administration of the CDBG program. He explained that funds were included in the budget to match the entire amount of the employee health insurance increase. He advised he was not recommending a market adjustment this year for employees, so matching the health insurance increase would be an opportunity to help those who are frozen at their current salaries as health insurance costs continue to rise each year. Mayor McArthur commented that private businesses are struggling and not picking up insurance increases for their employees, and the City Council should be careful in using public funds. It was suggested the matter be continued until after an executive session. PUBLIC HEARING/AMEND BUDGET/RESOLUTION: Public hearing to consider adjustments to the 2003-2004 fiscal budget for the City of St. George. City Manager Gary Esplin reviewed the recommended adjustments to the budget, attached hereto as Exhibit ?A?. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the resolution adjusting the budget. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the minutes as presented. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. REQUEST FOR REDUCTION IN INTEREST RATE ON NOTE: Consider a request for reduction in the interest rate charged on a note for the Ft. Pearce Business Park. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the current interest rate on the note is 8%. Since then, interest rates have gone down, and the applicants are requesting that the interest rate be lowered to 5.5%. This would be twice the interest rate the City is getting from the treasury pool, however, the applicants are requesting that the reduction in interest rate be backdated to July 1, 2003. Staff recommends that the lowered interest rate be effective July 1, 2004. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the request and approve the interest rate reduction retroactive to July 1, 2003. The motion died for lack of a second. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that money from the loan can be used for economic development incentives for qualified businesses, and would provide more opportunity for the current developers of the park to maximize their profits, if any. Staff?s recommendation is that the interest rate not be backdated to July 1, 2003. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the reduction of interest date, but not back date it. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. PAYSON POWER POOL APPENDIX: Consider approval of the Payson Power Project Pool Appendix. Energy Services Director Phil Solomon explained that the agreement requires that any surplus not taken from the Payson Power Plant has to be dealt with in the pool. The agreement requires a pooling appendix to handle this surplus. The appendix provides a mechanism for power not used to be dumped into the pool. The appendix is based on an all-in cost concept that UAMPS is trying to go to. It could be a good concept, but currently has a lot of problems. Four pages of comments from the City have been sent to UAMPS, and staff has real concerns about how it will work. The appendix was supposed to be adopted at the last UAMPS meeting, but because of St. George?s comments, was not. He St. George City Council Minutes June 17, 2004 Page Eleven stated that he did not know if he wanted to recommend approval until all the pool gets approved. If the City has surplus resources it is not using, UAMPS is supposed to buy it all back. Another meeting has been scheduled with UAMPS for June 28. MOTION: A motion to table this matter was made by Council Member Allen. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. Mr. Solomon then gave a brief report on the status of the fire in Dammeron Valley and its effect on power facilities. AMENDMENT TO CONTRACT: Consider approval of an amendment to the contract with Alpha Engineering for the 400 East improvement project. Kathy Hasfurther, Project Engineer, explained that a year ago the design was approved at a cost of $58,000 and included just the storm drain. Sewer, water and road reconstruction have now been added, and $24,000 additional is needed to pay for this. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that staff would like to upgrade the water and sewer lines as part of the project so that they do not have to go in later and tear up the street. Ms. Hasfurther explained that $132,000 will be the total cost for construction management and the additional design. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to approve the amendment. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. Ms. Hasfurther advised that construction would begin on Monday by the I-15 freeway and continue up to St. George Blvd. The contract is for six months, and Cindy Taylor Trucking is the contractor. Staff is working out details with regard to the rodeo and marathon, and the contractor may have to work longer hours or on weekends to finish the project. The contractor will only be allowed to pave two to three blocks at a time before they move on to another section. East and west corridors on 100 South, 300 South, 500 South, and 700 South will be kept open, and the closures will be advertised in the newspaper. AMENDMENT TO CONTRACT: Consider approval of an amendment to the Engineering Services Contract with Creamer and Noble for the 200 East improvement project. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that when the project was designed, the 200 East connection was not included in the design. The additional cost is for this portion of the project. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the amendment. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. APPROVAL OF MOU: Consider approval of an MOU with the Federal Highway Administration, US Fish and Wildlife Service, SITLA, and UDOT for planning and mitigation of cumulative impacts identified by the EIS process for the Southern Corridor project area. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that having an agreement will go a long way towards mitigating issues of concern. It does not bind the City, but indicates an interest in involving the US Fish and Wildlife Service in the process. The agreement is not detrimental to the City in any way. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the MOU. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. APPOINTMENTS: Appointments to boards and commissions. St. George City Council Minutes June 17, 2004 Page Twelve Mayor McArthur asked Council Members to provide him with recommendations for appointments to boards and commission. PUBLIC HEARING/ADOPTION OF BUDGET/RESOLUTION: Public hearing to consider adoption of the 2004-2005 fiscal budget for the City of St. George. This matter was continued from earlier in the meeting. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that if the City did a 1% market adjustment for all employees, it would cost $128,000. Equating that to a 12% medical insurance increase, this would amount to a 1.75% - 2% increase. A 12% medical insurance increase would mean the employees would be in a 70/30 classification as far as the deductible. This will require employees to pay more from their own pockets. It is estimated that medical insurance costs will rise 15% annually for the foreseeable future. Council Member Orton commented that it was obvious City employees have taken on a lot more every year and the City has not been able to keep up with the number of employees vs. growth. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to approve, by resolution, the 2004-05 fiscal budget, including coverage of the 12% medical insurance increase, along with other budget items recommended by the City Manager including the tamarack eradication program, one vehicle for a part-time enforcement officer, and a match for CDBG funds for administration of the program. He stated that his motion also included app...

The pledge of allegiance was led by Mayor McArthur and the invocation was offered by Keith Knowles of the United Way. Mr. Knowles briefly updated the Mayor and City Council on United Way efforts. Mayor McArthur reported on the Hela Seegmiller Farm project. DISCUSSION ON RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR THE TOWN SQUARE AND CITY PARKS: Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins distributed a draft of the suggested Town Square Operational Procedures and reviewed it. Topics discussed included the purpose, scheduling process, policies and fees. Mr. Perkins advised that a kiosk will be placed in the Town Square where the rules and regulations will be posted along with a calendar of events. Issues needing discussion are fundraising and if Town Square partners should be charged a fee for use of the Town Square. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that each Town Square partner most likely has qualified personnel to run the AV system, so a fee would not need to be charged. With regard to promotion of the downtown, the City?s intent needs to be defined. Mr. Perkins advised that the list of people who consider the City a partner with them has grown and this also needs to be defined. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that this item will be scheduled on a City Council agenda for action. With regard to closure of the Town Square in the evenings, more discussion is needed, along with a recommendation from the Police Department. REPORT FROM HUMAN RESOURCES DEPARTMENT: Judith Mayfield, Human Resources Director, presented a power point presentation including the Department?s purpose statement, employee chart, responsibilities, recruitment, hiring, retention, employee benefits, compensation, performance, employee relations, administrative duties, challenges and future plans. She advised that the City checks all social security documentation to determine eligibility to work in the United States, and out of over 1000 employees, only two employees were dismissed due to questionable documentation. REPORT FROM BUDGET AND FINANCIAL PLANNING DIVISION: Deanna Brklacich, Budget and Financial Planning Manager, advised that the budget process was recently reviewed with the Mayor and Council, so she would focus her presentation on the Purchasing Division. She introduced Connie Hood, Purchasing Manager. Ms. Brklacich distributed a Purchasing Procedures Summary Matrix and reviewed it. She reviewed goals of the Purchasing Division as well as the bidding procedure and training. Connie Hood, Purchasing Manager, advised that in the last eight years the workload has increased tremendously due to growth, but Purchasing staff has not increased and has been able to keep up with it. REPORT FROM THE FINANCE DEPARTMENT: Finance Director Phil Peterson explained the difference between his department and Ms. Brklacich?s is that Ms. Brklacich determines how much money can be spent, and he reports how that money is spent. He advised he prepared financial reports at least quarterly and all financial reports are on the City?s website. City finances are organized by fund accounting which is regulated by the State Auditor?s Office. The City has 35 funds. The Department has 19 employees. The Finance Department receipts everything related the City, including the golf courses, dinosaur museum, etc. The Department instituted electronic meter reading and is going to institute a meter reading audit program. The Department instituted auto draft for utility bills, the ability to pay over the internet with a credit card, and e-check program through the banks. The Department oversees the Business License Division with 5,484 active business licenses. REPORT FROM LEGAL DEPARTMENT: City Attorney Shawn Guzman distributed a handout covering personnel, services, budget, revenue, claims and criminal cases and reviewed it. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that Mr. Guzman is also a valuable presence at the Legislature on the City?s behalf and is a member of several legislative committees. REPORT FROM THE SUPPORT SERVICES DIVISION: Support Services Manager Marc Mortensen advised the Support Services Division is comprised of two areas - technology services and GIS services.

The pledge of allegiance was led by Scout Chipper Whatcott, and the invocation was offered by Pastor Wilkie. Mayor McArthur then invited the Scouts in attendance to introduce themselves. PRESENTATION OF THE CONCEPT OF A CHILDREN?S MUSEUM: Council Member Gail Bunker explained that the summary of the parks and recreation master plan recommends that a feasibility study be conducted for a children?s or science museum. Lynn Goodwin, founder of the Treehouse Museum in Ogden and its executive director, is willing to help St. George if it wants to be a part of the Ogden museum. She would help in setting it up and share exhibits. St. George would also be able to get grants and funding and share in the partnership. There is a need in St. George, but first a site must be identified. She suggested locations near the dinosaur museum, or Sand Hollow area, or fairgrounds, or by the Dixie Center, or the old movie theaters downtown. Council Member Gardner suggested the old Woodward building. Council Member Bunker stated her preference would be somewhere by the Town Square. Council Member Allen inquired about use of the Arts building for the resource center so the Woodward building could be used for the children?s museum. Council Member Whatcott suggested a location on Riverside Drive. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested use of the old School District administration building, or space in the basement of the courthouse buildin...

ST. GEORGE CITY COUNCIL MINUTES MAY 25, 2006, 4:00 P.M. ADMINISTRATION CONFERENCE ROOM SPECIAL MEETING PRESENT: Mayor Daniel McArthur Council Member Rod Orton Council Member Bob Whatcott Council Member Larry Gardner Council Member Suzanne Allen Council Member Gail Bunker City Manager Gary Esplin City Attorney Shawn Guzman City Recorder Gay Cragun OPENING: Mayor McArthur called the meeting to order and welcomed all present. The pledge of allegiance was led by Mayor McArthur and the invocation was offered by Suzanne Allen. Mayor McArthur reported on a meeting he recently attended in Salt Lake City with officials from Beijing, China. PROPERTY DONATION: Consider acceptance of a property donation: Kent Garrett advised that Dean Duke would like to donate hillside property to the City. The property is located across the street and kitty corner from Arby?s on Bluff Street, to the top of the hillside. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to accept the donation. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit to construct a four story hotel with a height up to 50'6" located in a C-3 zone at 2720 East Red Cliffs Drive. Dipak Patel, applicant. Russ Gallian presented renderings of the site. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to make a site visit on June 1 at 3:00 p.m. where the applicant will demonstrate the height of the building, with action taken by the City Council at its June 1 meeting. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. FINAL PLATS: Consider approval of the final plats for Sun River St. George Phases 22, 23 and 24. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that an appraisal has been received which was done on potential value, not existing value. SITLA offered to move the site to the west and indicated it would reduce the cost by 25%. However, Darcy Stewart has offered to donate $200,000 toward purchase of the site. The City is a few years away from building the fire station. The cost to purchase the site is $500,000 minus the $200,000 from Mr. Stewart. Fire Chief Robert Stoker commented that this site is the best location looked at. Council Member Whatcott commented that two years ago the land was worth $50,000 an acre, and the City will now have to pay $300,000 for the property. He stated he hoped staff has learned a valuable lesson that when a fire station site is put on a plat, it should remain there. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to approve the plats. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. St. George City Council Minutes May 25, 2006 Page Two MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to pursue purchase of the property. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance repealing creation of the Airport Advisory Board. Council Member Allen commented that Brent Gardner, Chairman of the Airport Advisory Board, was contacted by Hal Hilburn who requested that the matter be tabled for a week so he could be present. Mr. Hilburn does not agree with the manner in which the board was disbanded. City Attorney Shawn Guzman recommended that the City?s ordinance creating the Airport Advisory Board be repealed. Mayor McArthur commented that there might be a need for the Board in the future. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the ordinance. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Orton - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. The meeting then adjourned to the City Council Chambers. DISCUSSION CONCERNING IMPACT FEES: Jason Burningham presented a power point presentation on impact fees, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit ?A?. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that the matter would be scheduled for a public hearing and final adoption on June 15. Mr. Burningham summarized by saying that the City has nearly $900 million of capital facilities, with $481 being growth related. He stated that if the maximum allowable impact fee is not charged current residents will have to subsidize growth through taxes or user fees, or both. He explained that most communities annually review their capital plans and impact fees so that they do not get behind. He recommended that this process be included in the budget process each year. He recommended that the maximum supportable impact fees be imposed, but the City can waive all of them, or adjust some of them if they have a rational basis for doing so. He agreed that the recommended transportation impact fee for commercial needed further review before the next meeting. He stated that a financial plan would be ready for review at the June 1 Council meeting, with a public hearing and final adoption on June 15. Written responses are also invited. He recommended that a public notice be published advising that impact fees in a not to exceed amount will be adopted by the City Council on June 15, at which time the City Council will determine the final amount of impact fees within the maximums. The meeting then adjourned to the Administration Conference Room. DISCUSSION CONCERNING THE PARKS MASTER P...

ADMINISTRATION CONFERENCE ROOM PRESENT: Mayor Daniel McArthur Council Member Rod Orton Council Member Suzanne Allen Council Member Bob Whatcott Council Member Gail Bunker Council Member Larry Gardner City Manager Gary Esplin Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston City Recorder Gay Cragun OPENING: Mayor McArthur called the meeting to order at 4:10 p.m. and welcomed all present. The pledge of allegiance was led by Gay Cragun and the invocation was offered by Mayor McArthur. DISCUSSION ON THE SIGN ORDINANCE RELATING TO THE USE OF ADVERTISING BANNERS: Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised that staff researched what other cities were doing with regard to banners, and found out that each has their own unique way of handling banners, and all are struggling. Clayton Lucas distributed a handout entitled ?Policy Regarding the Use of Temporary Advertising Signs and Banners for Businesses?. Code Enforcement Officer Brad Young presented a power point presentation on temporary signs and banners found throughout the city. He advised that the Special Holiday Period and Civic and Non-Profit and Dixie Center Events recommendations contained in the policy were new. Council Member Bunker suggested that the period of banner use during the holidays be expanded. An unidentified man recommended that the policy allow a designated variable sign space to be located on a building for promotional rotating banners as long as other provisions of the policy were met. He advised that the Chamber, Sign Review Committee, and sign companies agree that signs between poles on a street are not attractive. He suggested that they be allowed, however, if they take the place of an allowed freestanding sign. Council Member Gardner stated he felt the proposed ordinance was over-reaching and deals with an area that cannot be dealt with. An unidentified man, representing Fabulous Freddy?s, suggested that St. George follow Summerlin?s banner policy, which prohibits them altogether. He suggested that banners be allowed to be attached to a building and limited to a certain percentage of building wall size. He stated from a business owner?s standpoint, he had no problem with this in order to make the City beautiful. St. George City Council Minutes January 11, 2007 Page Two An unidentified man suggested that the number of freestanding signs allowed to be used for civic and non-profit events be increased from three to six. He also suggested that the maximum size of these signs be increased from 3' x 8' to 4' x 8' in order to utilize a harder plastic material which comes in this standard size. Brad Young commented that a 4' x 8' signs put on a corner create site distance problems. He suggested this could be remedied by pulling them back from the corner. Council Member Whatcott commented that allowing six signs instead of three for civic and non-profit events would provide more advertising for the Dixie Center and help fill it. Mayor McArthur advised that the matter would be scheduled on a regular City Council agenda for adoption. An unidentified man, representing Fabulous Freddy?s, suggested the special holiday period be eliminated for consistency and because it will become confusing. PRESENTATION OF THE MASTER TRANSPORTATION PLAN UPDATE: Lee Cabele with Horrocks Engineering presented a power point presentation of the master traffic and transportation study, master plan development, traffic and roadways, transit, bikes, pedestrians, trails, general issues, summary and wrap-up. Council Member Gardner commented he found the suggested overpass over I-15 offensive as this area is a view corridor and should be preserved. He stated it would be cheaper to have a flyunder under I-15, and it should be reconsidered. Mr. Cabele replied that an EIS is underway which will address whether to go over or under. Council Member Gardner commented that with regard to the proposed Bluff Street/Sunset flyover, he could not see spending $22,000,000 to gain five blocks and that this was a waste of funds. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch distributed a handout entitled ?Ten Year Transportation Funding Plan? and reviewed it. Ryan Marshall updated the Mayor and City Council on SunTran service and advised that in May it will expand to half hour service. Federal funding has been received to improve the bus garage, add bays to the bus wash, and build an administration building and covered parking for the buses. Most of this ...

...ry church seminary building for students to attend classes and for related administration. He explained that the building would be accessed by a drive lane that comes off 400 East. Mr. Nicholson said that the site plan shows an area set aside for a potential future road that could be put through to 900 South if it is determined to be necessary. The Planning Commission recommends approval with the following conditions: (1) provide a cross access agreement between the School District and the LDS Church, (2) provide fourteen parking spaces, (3) process a lot split application and meet conditions, (4) submit a SPR application, and (5) comply with the City Traffic Engineer requirements for access and circulation. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested making a condition with the School District that they would agree to leave an area open for a possible connection to 900 South. St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Five MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the Conditional Use Permit with the conditions made by the Planning Commission and that if future needs require it, the LDS Church will provide the ability to connect with a future possible road that would go to 900 South. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit to construct an LDS church stake center at approximately 2400 East and 3400 South, west of Little Valley Road. Dennis Patten, agent for the LDS Church, applicant. Bob Nicholson, Director of Community Development, explained that the applicant proposes to construct a 24,459 square foot, single story church building with an associated outdoor pavilion. He said that the Planning Commission has recommended approval with the following conditions: (1) submit a SPR, (2) comply with City Traffic Engineer requirements for access and circulation, (3) coordinate with affected utilities to provide appropriate infrastructure; sewer, water, electrical, gas, etc., to the site, (4) coordinate with the Development Services Department to ensure that roads comply with the master road plan and coordinate utilities with the road construction, (5) mitigate the canal that bisects the property to the satisfaction of the Development Services Department, and (6) comply with the City?s concurrency policy for offsite roadway and sewer improvements. Council Member Allen asked if the canal was going to part of a trail system. Mayor McArthur said that the canal on this property was not part of the Washington Canal and would not be included in the trail system. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the Conditional Use Permit with the conditions as stated. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit to construct an indoor go-cart track, snack bar, conference rooms, and possible indoor climbing wall within an existing building in the Millcreek Industrial Park located at 3146 East Deseret Drive. David Robinson, applicant. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that at the March 16, 2006 City Council meeting, the City Council approved amending Title 10 Zoning Regulations, Chapter 11 ?Manufacturing Zones,? Section 10-11-2 ?Uses?, to add ?Recreational Enterprises? as a conditional use within the M-2 zone. Bob Nicholson, Director of Community Development, stated that the applicant proposes to establish and operate an indoor go-cart track, restaurant, and three conference rooms inside of a leased industrial building. The applicants also wish to be considered for a possible future indoor climbing rock wall. He said that the Planning Commission recommended approval with the following conditions: (1) the site be approved only for two indoor go-cart tracks, associated ancillary restaurant (snack shop) and conference rooms, (2) a future indoor rock climbing wall may be permitted by staff, (3) 75 parking spaces have been determined to satisfy the parking requirements based upon submitted parking calculations, (4) the applicant shall obtain a city business license, (5) existing outside lighting shall comply with dark sky lighting design, (6) additional outside lighting shall be added to the front of the building and shall also comply with dark sky lighting design, and (7) signage shall be under a separate permit. Mayor McArthur asked about the hours of operation. The applicant said that the hours of operation would be 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Friday and Saturday hours would be 11:00 a.m. to midnight and they would be closed Sunday. Council Member Bunker asked about the exhaust system. The applicant said that they have upgraded to six fans which will turn over the air in the building every 10 minutes instead of every 30 minutes. Four of the fans are on an automatic sensor and two of the fans will be manual so they can be turned on and left on. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the Conditional Use Permit with the stated conditions. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Six CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit to construct a new Children?s Justice Center at approximately 450 East and 500 South. Patricia Sheffield, applicant. Bob Nicholson, Director of Community Development, explained that the Planning Commission first determined that a ?Children?s Justice Center?, a private/public partnership is similar to ?Public Buildings? as listed as a conditional use in residential zones. Mr. Nicholson stated that the Planning Commission than had a lengthy discussion on the merits of the application and the conditional use. Mr. Nicholson said that one of the complaints the neighbors had at the Planning Commission meeting was the parking. The CJC has weekly and monthly meetings and in the existing facility there is not enough off-street parking so there has been parking on the street. The new proposal has 18-20 parking spaces behind the proposed building. The building is a large two story house with a driveway on the left side, typical front yard, playground area and parking lot. Council Member Allen asked if the existing Justice Center will be removed or left there. Mr. Nicholson said that he thought the current facility would be razed but stated that the applicant would be able to address that question. Mr. Nicholson said that the Planning Commission recommended approval with conditions that would include but not be limited to the following: (1) determination that the use is similar to a public building, (2) redesign the driveway to avoid close proximity to an existing power pole, (3) 20 parking spaces are adequate for this application, (4) any proposed future expansions would require additional review by the Planning Commission and City Council, (5) obtain a city business license, (6) submit a Site Plan Review application, (7) a lot merger is required to combine SG-928-A and SG-928-B, (8) staff to determine whether a privacy wall is necessary, (9) there shall be no overnight use or residency in the building, (10) the site shall be used only for interviewing and training purposes, (11) make all possible effort to keep the mature tree(s) on the site, particularly in the front, (12) no signage, and (13) there shall be no therapy services performed on site. Mr. Nicholson explained that a letter, signed by some of the neighbors, opposing the request was in the packets of information. Patricia Sheffield, Director of the Children?s Justice Center (CJC), explained that the Center?s mission is to offer a safe, neutral, child-friendly environment where children can be interviewed by professionals from law enforcement and Child Protective Services when there are allegations of sexual abuse, severe physical abuse, drug endangered children and internet crimes against children. Ms. Sheffield stated that in the proposed new location nothing about the operation of the Center will change. The new location will provide an environment that will better meet the needs of the growing community. She said that when the house was first donated for the Center it was assumed that 100 - 150 children would be interviewed in a year. In calendar year 2004, there were 266 children interviewed; in 2005 there were 324 children interviewed, an increase of 18%. The current facility is not adequate to handle the number of children being interviewed. Ms. Sheffield stated when they vacate the current building it will go back to IHC. Council Member Orton asked how many people attended the monthly and weekly meetings that are held at the Center. Ms. Sheffield stated that the weekly meeting is attended by approximately 25 professional people from various agencies that work with the CJC. There is an advisory meeting once a month attended by approximately 20 people and a 501c3 Friends Board meeting held once a month that is attended by 10 people. Council Member Orton asked how many staff members worked at the Childrens Justice Center. Ms. Sheffield said that there were 3 staff people - herself as Director, a Victim Services Coordinator, and an Office Coordinator. Council Member Orton asked Ms. Sheffield what happens when a child needs a place to stay. Ms. Sheffield explained that if a child is removed from their family it goes through Child Protective Services. She stated that the Children?s Justice Center does not house children. Council Member Bunker asked if the meetings Ms. Sheffield discussed are held at the current location and why they feel they need a 6,000 sq. ft. facility for the new location. St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Seven Ms. Sheffield acknowledged that the new location would be much larger than the current location. She explained that at the current facility if there is more than one family in the Center at one time she has to give up her office or have them go out to the porch or backyard in order to accommodate the one family in the living room. She stated that in a community as small as ours it is important that the people feel comfortable coming into the facility and if there?s too much interaction between families it can be very awkward for everyone, especially the children. The new facility would allow them to keep the families separated in staff offices that are private. Ms. Sheffield said that right now the Victim Services Coordinator is working in the kitchen and there is no privacy for conversations and confidentiality. The Center currently has two interview rooms and it is generally not adequate to get the interviews done without scheduling people very close together. She said that they want to build for the future. Council Member Bunker asked Ms. Sheffield about the ages of the children who were served by the Center. Ms. Sheffield said that the ages of the children interviewed are between 3 and 17 with an average age of 8 ? years. About 98% percent of the cases are sexual abuse cases. City Attorney Shawn Guzman stated that the way it used to work, the funding would go through the County so the employees of the Center were actually County employees. He asked Ms. Sheffield if that were still the case. Ms. Sheffield said that was still the case. She explained the agreement with the Attorney General?s office and Washington County and that the State Legislature gives the appropriation through the Attorney General?s office and the Children?s Justice Center is under the County?s umbrella. The staff of the Center are considered County employees but it is State money. It?s a pass-through. Attorney Guzman raised the question about why the Center would need a Business License since they are County employees and it is a County operation even though the State funds it. He stated that for all intents and purposes it?s a County facility. Attorney Guzman noted that the criteria set forth by the Planning Commission limited the Center to ?interviewing and training? purposes. He explained that he knows that some Children?s Justice Centers have medical exam rooms and he said that he would not want to preclude that from happening in the future. He stated that if they limit it to ?interviewing and training? purposes only, if the Center wanted to make such a move in the future to help in detecting crimes and wants to do it in a way that helps the children feel comfortable when they?ve gone through a traumatic event, they may not be able to do that. He stated that a big concern seems to be the overnight use of the facility. He explained that by law the Center cannot take custody of children. He asked Ms. Sheffield if she thought those things would limit their ability to make changes in their program in the future. Ms. Sheffield stated that at the present time they have an arrangement with a Pediatrician in town who does all of the medical exams. The 501c3 Board purchased the forensic medical equipment that is required. If it were necessary in the future it would be one small room where the forensic medical equipment would be located and the doctor would come to the Center when it was necessary to do one of those exams. Attorney Shawn Guzman asked Ms. Sheffield if she wanted to include the ability to have the exams done at the Center in the request. Council Member Orton asked Ms. Sheffield if she thought having therapy as a service should be part of the request. Ms. Sheffield said that to have the flexibility of the exam room would be very helpful. She stated that they do not provide on-site therapy. She explained they are concentrating their efforts on providing core services and those are spelled out in State statute and providing therapy is not one of those functions. She said that providing referrals to therapy is and they coordinate that kind of program for children and their families. Ms. Sheffield said that she believed that the recommendation of the Planning Commission was for ?investigation, prosecution, administrative and training?. Mayor McArthur asked if there was a spokesman for the neighbors to present their concerns to the Council. He stated that he would allow the spokesman to speak for 5-6 minutes and he would allow the other individuals who wanted to speak 3 minutes. Debra Clark stated that she lives in the neighborhood that would be impacted by this facility. Council Member Allen asked Ms. Clark exactly where she lives. St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Eight Ms. Clark said that she lives at 549 South 400 East. She stated that when she walks out her front door she sees the hospital. Ms. Clark said that she represents a large number of citizens of the community who are concerned about the application for another Conditional Use Permit in the neighborhood. She stated that they strongly believe that residential zoning areas should and must be preserved for the protection of both current and future families to support and strengthen neighborhoods and also to preserve the value of current and future homes in the area. She said that there is not one person who is against the building of a new Children?s Justice Center. She said that their goal is the firm preservation of the existing zoning to support and promote a family-style neighborhood such as has been in existence there for many years. Ms. Clark stated that granting Conditional Use Permits, exceptions to existing law, parallels the destruction of an ecosystem or habitat. She said that it is a slowly encroaching, gradual takeover of established family centered neighborhoods into a conglomeration of isolated homes among inharmonious, inappropriate, out of place office buildings. She explained that they had done some searching in the General Plan that supports their position and mentioned how St. George had been carefully laid out by the pioneers with broad streets and beautiful homes in the older, established neighborhoods. She said that they read that development should respect patterns and precedence and boundaries and districts. She said that they feel that they live in one of the older districts of St. George and need help in protecting that. Ms. Clark talked about having pride in the appearance of their neighborhood and community and stated that there is a relationship between that and community pride, security and a sense of well-being. Ms. Clark stated that it says in the General Plan that the present planning challenge is to direct and manage growth in order to preserve the quality of life now enjoyed by residents. It also says that the residents of every community have the right to determine the quality of life they wish to preserve and that all land use decisions shall be consistent with the General Plan. She said that they researched what happens when a Conditional Use Permit is approved and found that the proposed use will contribute to the general well being of the community, it will not be detrimental to the health, safety, welfare or aesthetics of persons residing or working in or injurious to property or improvements in the vicinity and in harmony with the intent and purpose of the Master Plan. Ms. Clark said that their zone is R-1-8, a single-family residential zone the purpose of which is to provide low density, residential neighborhoods with proper controls of public and semi-public uses. She said that they still questioned that the CJC is a public entity. She said that the definition of public is ?open to the community at large? and she understands that everyone could go to the Center but she said that the usage is by such a small amount of the population. Ms. Clark continued with the description of public uses which lists churches, schools, libraries, parks and playgrounds which serve the requirements of families. They are intended to prohibit those uses that would be harmful to a single-family neighborhood, which she stated, is what their neighborhood is. She said the General Plan outlines permitted uses as single-family dwellings, gardens and trees, pets, accessory buildings, home occupations and residential facilities for the disabled. She said that the Conditional Uses are churches, schools, child nurseries, parks and playgrounds, public utilities, residential facilities for the elderly, public buildings and other uses in harmony with the intent of the zone and similar in nature to those listed. Ms. Clark that said she looked up ?public? in the dictionary and it said ?pertaining to the people at large; open to or shared by all the people; known to all, not secret; engaged in service to the people of the community.? She said that she also added ?public spirited, seeking the best interest of the community of people.? Ms. Clark stated they are seeking the best interests of the neighborhood and community. She referred to slides that showed some things that are already impacting their neighborhood on Conditional Use Permits. She stated that the critical issue is that the proposed building will begin a change that will eventually result in other office-type buildings and businesses with a few homes of greatly depreciated value remaining among the large buildings. She stated that the majority of families will have either been pressured or chose to move away in order to find family-style neighborhoods in which to raise their children. She said she expected the elected officials to represent and support the neighbors in this endeavor. Ms. Illa May Blake stated that she lives at 494 East 500 South directly across the street from the proposed site. Ms. Blake said that the neighbors were not against the Children?s Justice Center but they are against encroaching on the neighborhood. She said that the area is saturated with traffic and mentioned surrounding schools, the hospital and doctor?s offices. Ms. Blake said that if the City allows this change to take place they might as well zone the entire street for commercial use. Ms. Blake stated that the neighbors strongly believe in the Children?s Justice Center but they feel that everyone would be better served if it were moved to an outlying area. Ms. Blake said that many years ago the residents were promised that the businesses would never cross 400 East. She asked the City Council to deny the Conditional Use Permit and let the property be sold to developers who would build single-family homes. Mr. Mike Alton stated that he lives at 535 South 440 East Circle which is about one-half block from the proposed CJC. Mr. Alton expressed concern about two predators in the last nine years who have been caught near the Children?s Justice Center. He stated that even one predator in the neighborhood is too many. Mr. Alton said that St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Nine the persons who are involved in the regrettable trauma of the workings of the CJC could likely be attracted to the building and hang around in the neighborhood. Mr. Alton said that it is a well-known fact that there are many registered sex offenders throughout the town. Mayor McArthur stated that after the citizens spoke he would like the Chief of Police to address the concerns about the predators and registered sex offenders. Mr. Kenneth Poulson stated that he lives directly across the street from the proposed CJC. He said that he just bought a home that had been a rental for years. They bought the home and have been remodeling it as a single-family home. Mr. Poulson said that his concerns as a homeowner directly across from the empty lot is the landscaping. He said that the proposed building is a 5,000 sq. ft. house compared to his 1,100 sq. ft. home. He said that it will out-look the existing homes in the neighborhood. He also wanted to know about what type of landscaping there will be. He said that he heard that it was going to be desert landscaping compared to most of the other homes in the neighborhood that have grass and trees in the front. He said that he would want the proposed building to blend in with the existing homes. Another neighbor came forward and stated that the CJC presented plans to build on only two lots but she stated that they could be divided into three large 9,000 sq. ft. lots for three homes and three families. She said that a new cul de sac could also be added that could accommodate another seven family homes. The neighbor said that the proposed building is 6,000 sq. ft. and that the CJC wants to be unpretentious and an unknown location but she feels that it will stand out and will be known. She said that she feels that there will be traffic and parking issues as well. She stated that she wants IHC to plan it all together at once and that the rest of it be zoned residential. She said that Patricia Sheffield said that IHC has first rights to buy back the land if it were ever to be sold. She asked that the Conditional Use Permit not be granted. Ms. Chris Brubaker stated that she lives at 432 East 500 South right across from the present Children?s Justice Center. She said that she wanted to speak to a possible compromise that would: (1) scale the building down so it would be harmonious in size to the existing homes, (2) the built space which includes the structure and the parking area needs to be matched with equal or at least adequate green space as already planned, (3) build the new building next to the Jubilee House, (4) require a legally binding agreement that IHC consent to sell the remaining property in the block to a developer who would build single-family homes that would abide by the R-1-8 zone, and (5) table the issue at this time to look at a compromise or viable working alternatives. Mr. Lloyd Cannon lives directly behind where the proposed building will be built. He stated that the parking lot will be right next to his fence. He said that people who live on the east side of the building will not be able to get into the back end of their property. Mr. Cannon recommended that they change the driveway from the middle of the block to the east side of the block for access. Mr. Cannon said that part of the block is an eyesore and something needs to be done to beautify the area. Mr. Richard Merrill stated that he lives on 700 South. Mr. Merrill said that his concern is when the Children?s Justice Center outgrows its needs in the proposed building and reverts back to IHC. He said that he wants the City Council to look at what the building will be used for. He asked if it would be compatible with the single-family resident neighborhood. He stated that he thought they would use it for an office building or doctor?s offices which is out of the realm of a single-family unit. Mr. Merrill implored the Council to turn down the Conditional Use Permit. Ms. Clark returned to the podium and stated that in preparing the presentation many people whom they spoke to felt the same way except that they had given up hope. They said that promises had been broken by IHC in the past and that it was a ?done deal.? Ms. Clark said that she loves the neighborhood but they are inundated with Conditional Use Permits. She asked that the Council put themselves in their place and think about their own neighborhoods and what they envision for the environment surrounding your own private homes. She said that they are asking the Council to allow them their own vision. She said that the Children?s Justice Center could go some place else but that the people who lived in the neighborhood could not. She concluded by stating that the neighborhood is not against the Children?s Justice Center, it is against more Conditional Use Permits in their neighborhood. She asked the Council to please deny another Conditional Use Permit. Council Member Orton asked Ms. Clark if the Children?s Justice Center was a bad neighbor. Ms. Clark stated that it is not a bad neighbor but some of the comments made in the neighborhood meetings mentioned seeing police cars at the facility in the middle of the night. She said some people have alleged that there is activity there during the night. Council Member Orton said that it is his understanding that the CJC is not getting a new Conditional Use Permit; they are just moving to a new facility. St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Ten Mayor McArthur said that it is not a new use. Ms. Clark said that it was her understanding that there was going to be a granting of a Conditional Use Permit for this brand new facility and that the neighbors want to say they don?t want any more Conditional Use Permits. She said that it was their understanding that the Council was going to grant or not grant a Conditional Use Permit for the new building at this meeting. Mayor McArthur said that was true. He said that it was on the Agenda as a request for a Conditional Use and that presentation has been made. Council Member Orton stated that in the past he served on the hospital board for several years and the neighborhood is better now than when it was the main facility. He said that the neighborhood is quieter, has less traffic and is drastically improved with IHC moving their main campus. Council Member Gardner said that he knew because of the pressure from the neighbors and some lines that were drawn, IHC made the decision to move outside of the neighborhood and not impact the area anymore. He said that it doesn?t mean that there still isn?t appropriate uses associated with the neighborhood too. Council Member Gardner stated that he knew of a couple of Conditional Use Permits that were turned down and building applications that were denied. He stated that everything hasn?t gone against their neighborhood. The Council is very sensitive to that. Council Member Gardner asked Ms. Clark if anyone has had a conversation with IHC about the issues raised. Ms. Clark said that they hadn?t had time. Some of the neighbors felt that they didn?t get adequate notification. She said that they had gotten the presentation together at the very last minute. She said that they would like to. Council Member Allen stated that she is on the Board and that it is no longer IHC, it is Intermountain Health. She stated that the neighbors are associating the Children?s Justice Center with IHC. She said that the land had been purchased by IHC years ago and things have drastically changed over time. She said that she has seen and has worked on the plan for the long-term future of hospital facilities and nothing is included in this area of town. She said that things will probably lessen in that area of town as the hospital builds up more on its main campus. She said that she thought they could set up a meeting with hospital administration and some members of the Board and have a discussion with the...

Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution abandoning a 15 foot wide non-exclusive water line easement in the Millcreek Industrial Park.

Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. ENGINEERING CONTRACT: Consider approval of an engineering contract with Creamer & Noble for rehabilitation of the airport runway. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that from a safety standpoint, rehabilitation of the runway must be taken care of now. This will reduce the amount of money which can be contributed to the new airport, but the City has no choice. Airport Manager Dave Ulane explained that the local cost for the project has been reduced from a 91%-9% local match to a 95%-5% local match. The airport will be closed for ten days from July 26 through August 4 in order to perform the rehabilitation. Council Member Whatcott expressed dismay over the $145,000 engineering bill. Mr. Ulane replied that FAA specifications for runway asphalt and compiling plans and specifications must be met, and construction management is a largest part of the design fee. There will be four inspectors on duty 24 hours per day for ten days. The City also obtained estimates almost exactly in line with typical FAA paving projects. If the City accepts federal funding, it must play by their rules. A motion was made by Council Member Allen and seconded by Council Member Orton to approve the contract. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. AIRPORT ACTIVITY: Consider approval of a commercial aeronautical activity for Mike?s Aviation, Inc. Airport Manager Dave Ulane explained that the applicant was formerly with River?s Aviation until its dissolution, and has now set up shop under his own name. He will be performing aircraft maintenance and power plant repair out of the new Millionaire hangar. The Airport Board recommends approval. A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to approve the request. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. APPROVE WALL DESIGN: Consider approval of the wall design between the proposed Oasis Palms Apartments and the Emerald Springs development. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that on April 3, 2003, the Oasis Palms Apartments were granted a zone change. As part of that approval the City Council requested that the final design for the wall between Oasis Palms and the Emerald Springs development be brought back to them for approval. The Emerald Springs Homeowners Association has approved the design. The wall will consist of vinyl fencing on top to the existing block wall. Mayor McArthur inquired if the wall would be required everywhere. An unidentified man replied that two and possibly three owners do not want the wall. A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to approve the wall design. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. EXEMPT COMMERCIAL WATER USERS: Consider exempting commercial users from the water conservation rates. This item was tabled. St. George City Council Minutes March 4, 2004 Page Four SET PUBLIC HEARING: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held February 24, 2004, recommended that a public hearing be scheduled for April 1, 2004 at 5:00 p.m. to consider a zone change from A-1 to R-1-10 on 2.98 acres located at 2000 North and Tuweap Drive, and to amend the Sunbrook PD zone to include approximately six acres, a 30 suite bed and breakfast, and modifications of unit types and densities throughout the development located on Sunbrook Drive off of Dixie Drive. A motion was made by Council Member Allen and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to schedule the public hearings as recommended by the Planning Commission. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. FINAL PLAT: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held February 24, 2004, recommended approval of the final plat for Sandstone Village Commercial Subdivision with three lots located at 42 South River Road. Brett Hastings is the applicant. The Planning Commission recommended approval. A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Allen to approve the final plat and authorize the Mayor to sign it. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. PRELIMINARY PLAT: Associate Planner Mark Bradley explained that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held February 24, 2004, recommended approval of the preliminary plat for Riverside Heights Phases G & H located at Riverside Drive and 2900 East. James Stephenson is the applicant. The Planning Commission recommends approval subject to the following conditions: 1. A development agreement prepared by the City for surety money to be set aside for the improvements along Riverside Drive. 2. Applicant work with City staff to resolve the landscape maintenance along Riverside Drive prior to final plat approval. 3. Meet 70 foot minimum frontage width (a few lot lines require some adjustment). 4. Wall and street trees are to be installed at the same time. The wall may vary in height from five to six feet, but in no case exceed six feet. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested that a homeowners association could be formed to take care of the landscaping. Mr. Bradley replied that the applicant prefers that each homeowner take care of the landscaping maintenance. Council Member Whatcott commented that if the homeowners were responsible for the maintenance, potentially 50-60 encroachment problems could be created. Mr. Bradley advised that Pebble Creek formed an association specifically to handle landscape maintenance. Gerald Pratt, representing the applicant, advised that the applicant would rather not have a homeowners association, but if required, would comply. A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to approve the preliminary plat subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission and subject to formation of a homeowners association to maintain the landscaping. Council Member Allen expressed concern that the City was requiring the applicant to form a homeowners association to care for the landscaping when it has not been required of others. She inquired of Mr. Pratt is the applicant was willing to work with the City?s Parks Department on a xeriscape landscaping. Mr. Pratt replied that the applicant was willing to do so. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. LOT SPLIT: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held February 24, 2004, recommended approval of a lot split for property located at 231 W. St. George Blvd. subject to a reciprocal access agreement. Norman Smith is the applicant. St. George City Council Minutes March 4, 2004 Page Five A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott and seconded by Council Member Allen to approve the lot split. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. HILLSIDE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT: Associate Planner Mark Bradley explained that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held February 24, 2004, recommended approval of a hillside development permit for a Marriott Hotel located at 100 South and 1470 East (east of River Road) subject to the following conditions: 1. Stack rock against the proposed hillside cut with consistent rock color and size. 2. Drainage issues shall be put in writing and a drainage study provided to the Engineering Department for review. 3. Future maintenance in the drainage channel will be preventive maintenance performed by the applicants. 4. No disturbance, encroachment, or geotechnical fabric (geogrid) is allowed in the open space zone. 5. Allow rock to be higher than the scarring above the drainage channel by a minimum of two feet. 6. Rock to be painted to match the natural color of the hillside. Kevin Ence and Ed Burgess are the applicants. Council Member Allen commented that the rocks should be colored as soon as they are placed and not when the buildings are complete. She then made a motion to approve the hillside development permit subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission, and with the stipulation that the rocks are painted as soon as the wall is completed. The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit for a School District warehouse located north of Brigham Road at about 800 East. Washington County School District, applicant. Planner Ray Snyder explained that the proposed site is located by the School District transportation and maintenance facility in Bloomington Hills. Zoning is Open Space. The proposed facility is 32,000 sq. ft. Concern was expressed at the Planning Commission meeting about the number of buses parked in front of the proposed site. A landscape plan has been submitted with a four to six foot berm with plants and trees to hide the facility. There is ample parking. The Planning Commission recommended approval subject to the following conditions: 1. The applicant shall provide a landscape plan to the City Council for review. This plan shall demonstrate landscaping materials to the satisfaction of the City Council and that said landscaping should be out of the right-of-way for the future widening of Brigham Road. 2. Building colors shall match the existing transportation and maintenance facility to the east. Council Member Whatcott inquired about maintenance of adjacent landscaping. Phil Williams, representing Washington County School District, replied that he would take a look at it. Council Member Whatcott commented that parking the buses on the road was contrary to what was initially talked about when the transportation and maintenance facility was originally built. Mr. Williams replied that at the time of approval the buses were already being parked in that area. A new design now separates the drop-off area from the parking and provides for a walkway for students to access the buses. Council Member Whatcott replied that this was not the way he remembered the discussion, and while the buildings are great and provide a needed service, they were set away from the road in order to provide parking for the buses off the road. Further, the landscaping has not been properly maintained. St. George City Council Minutes March 4, 2004 Page Six Mr. Williams replied that the landscaping has not been doing well because of the soil, and it has been difficult to get anything to grow. Council Member Allen inquired if staff had a copy of the minutes when this issue was originally discussed. Mr. Snyder reported that the minutes of October 22, 1996 and April 15, 1997 indicate a concern for traffic in the neighborhood, an industrial look, and landscaping, but there is nothing mentioned about where the buses are to be parked. Council Member Orton replied that the neighborhood had changed since then, in any event, and it is more important now than ever to have it look nice. Mr. Williams commented that it may not look the best it can. He committed to planting trees. A motion was made by Council Member Orton to approve the conditional use permit subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission, and with a suggestion that other issues with the School District be addressed. The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that he would schedule a meeting with the School District on a work agenda. PUBLIC HEARING/AMEND PD ZONE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a request to amend the 3D Commercial Center Planned Development Zone by adding the following uses to the list of permitted uses: (1) automobile repair and storage within an enclosed building; (2) trailer sales and service; and (3) storage rental units, provided such use is limited to Lots 6 and 7. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the applicant would like to add three uses: (1) automobile repair and storage within an enclosed building, (2) trailers sales and service, and (3) storage rental units, provided such use is limited to Lots 6 and 7. The Planning Commission recommends approval. Doug Glendenning, applicant, explained that Lots 6 and 7, proposed for storage rental units, are located way back in a crevice, and Lots 11 and 12 are proposed for trailer sales and service. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to approve the amendment by ordinance. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/AMEND ZONING REGULATIONS/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider an amendment to the City?s zoning regulations regarding tattoo, body piercing, and permanent cosmetics establishments. Associate Planner Mark Bradley explained that the Planning Commission asked staff to look into this issue, and several drafts of the ordinance have been reviewed with the Planning Commission. The Planning Commission feels the uses in question have a negative influence on commercial areas in the community. Staff recommends that a distance requirement also be considered or limiting such uses to one per commercial building. Mayor McArthur recommended that the uses in question be treated similar to sexually oriented businesses and have distance requirements. Mr. Bradley commented that at this time no distance requirements have been recommended. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that if the City Council approves the ordinance as presented, it can always be modified later. St. George City Council Minutes March 4, 2004 Page Seven Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. A motion to approve the ordinance was made by Council Member Allen and seconded by Council Member Orton, with a direction to staff to come back with a recommendation for a distance requirement. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/AMEND CITY CODE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider an amendment to Section 10-2-1, St. George City Code, regarding the definition of a child nursery; setting the conditional use permit requirement at nine children rather than six children. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the City Code requires a conditional use permit for more than six children, yet the State Code sets the limit at nine children. He recommended adoption of the nine child limit to streamline the City?s regulations and make them more friendly to the public. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott and seconded by Council Member Orton to approve the ordinance amendment. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott -aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/POWER RATE INCREASE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to discuss recommendations from staff and the Water and Energy Services Board for an across-the-board power rate increase. Energy Services Director Phil Solomon presented a power point presentation reviewing current factors, objectives, projected cash flow assumptions, recommendations, and a rate comparison. Staff recommends an 8% increase beginning April 1, 2004, with another 6% across-the-board increase beginning July 1, 2005. The Water and Energy Services Board recommends a 10% increase beginning April 1, 2004 and an additional 6% in July, 2005. Council Member Whatcott commented he wondered if the rates should be raised to 10% now, and then review the rates again in one year rather than approving an 8% increase now and another 6% increase in July 2005. Mayor McArthur commented that the City Council has the ability to raise the rates rapidly if an increase is needed. Water and Energy Services Board Member Marge Shakespeare commented that a rate increase is a complex issue which affects everyone, and the Board members feel they have an obligation to the City to be prudent. She advised that the Board would accept either option. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. Mayor McArthur inquired of Mr. Solomon what the proposed increase would do to the summer rate. Mr. Solomon replied that the City, in July 2001, adopted a power cost adjustment ordinance to allow the City Council to take immediate action to set rates in order to maintain a positive margin. A 40% power cost adjustment was made in April 2002 which has remained in effect and would not be removed. Mayor McArthur commented that a lot of input, discussion, time, and thought has been put into the recommended rate increase. St. George City Council Minutes March 4, 2004 Page Eight Council Member Whatcott commented that the City?s effort is to make sure it remains whole while charging the most efficient rates possible. A motion was made by Council Member Orton to approve a 10% power rate increase by ordinance beginning April 1, 2004, with a review and re-evaluation in June, 2005 and possible recommendation for an adjustment at that time. The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott. Council Member Allen commented that she would agree with the 10% increase if staff would be sure to look at the rates and drop them if the desired goal was attained sooner than anticipated. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/AMEND BUDGET/RESOLUTION: Public hearing to consider amendments to the 2003-2004 fiscal budget. City Manager Gary Esplin reviewed proposed changes to the budget, attached hereto as Exhibit ?A?. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. A motion was made by Council Member Allen and seconded by Council Member Orton to approve the proposed amendments by resolution. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

Chairman Almquist in light of the fact they have two Planning Commissioners who are not here and Council Member Bunker not present. They need all four votes - in the past the applicant can ask for another date to be heard. Curt Gordon said he would prefer to have the full commission here.

...e is complete. The request is from SITLA (State Institutional Trust Lands Administration), Mr. Kyle Pasley, representative. SITLA, Alliance Consulting, and Quality Excavation are co-applicants. The property is located southeast of Milepost 2 in the vicinity of the Atkinville Wash and Lizard Wash area. It is proposed that extraction be performed in six phases on 54 acres (Phase 1A = 4.50 acres, Phase 1B = 4.00 acres, Phase 2 = 9.18 acres, Phase 3 = 9.90 acres, Phase 4 = 10.00 acres, Phase 5 = 8.98 acres, and Phase 6 = 7.90 acres). The property is zoned M&G (Mining & Grazing). Case No. 2007-CUP-007PLANNING COMMISSIONApril 24, 2007Page ThreePlanner Ray Snyder said this item has been reviewed before by Planning Commission at a March 27, 2007 meeting. City Council approved 8.5 acres at the April 5, 2007 meeting. The applicant has since revised the request from 8.5 acres to a total of 54 acres. Staff felt that Planning Commission needed to see this item again due to the change in the acreage. Commissioner Nobis asked if the entire 54 acres were going to be a park at the end of the completion of their extraction. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson believed it would be. Assistant City Project Engineer Jay Sandberg said they did put a detail plan together and they are in the process of revising the flood maps. They are trying to keep the channels looking somewhat natural. Jay stated that the City Engineer has met with the applicant several times and they are satisfied with what they are proposing for this area. Jay said they will be excavating below grade but when they are finished they will fill the area and bring it back up to grade level. Commissioner Nobis wanted to know how are they going to guaranteed to have the site reclaimed and put back to grade. Jay replied there is no guaranteed at this point. The State will stay on top of this. Commissioner Nobis asked if Planning Commission could require them to have a development agreement or a bond for a guarantee of a park. Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston said they could.Planner Ray Snyder spoke on the water issue that was brought up during City Council. Development Project Manager Bill Swenson said the applicant did agree to relocate the water source. He would like to see a timeline on that relocation. To relocate they would have to run a line above the surface. Bill said he feels 90 days would be a reasonable timeline. He has reviewed their dust control plan. This item was set aside until representative was present to readdress the issue. Curt Gordon representing SITLA said they have reached an agreement between SITLA, the City and UDOT to provide the gravel material that will actually build the interchange and the southern parkway. Curt said this is a 54-acre parcel and when they are done about 25-30 of that acreage will be used as a park. Part of this will be park and part will be residential. Phasing would not work for the needs of the project. Timing issue were discussed. Curt Gordon suspected that they would be awarding a contract for construction sometime in August or September of 2007. PLANNING COMMISSIONApril 24, 2007Page FourCommissioner Taylor asked if there would there be assurances that the site would be filled to flood plain level and would be suitable for a park. Would you be willing to go into a development agreement with the City in regards to that? Curt said they have an agreement with the City already and that is the term of the agreement and Planning Commission approval is part of that term. Curt said they agreed to operate on the site for five years and then restore the area and dedicate the property to the City. Water issues were discussed. There were concerns with dust in the area. The intent was for the water to help control the dust. He did not think that timing issues were that critical. Phasing issues were discussed. MOTION: Commissioner Taylor made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a conditional use permit for operation of a five-year gravel extraction site to provide material for Milepost 2 Area “J” and other projects in the south block. The area is proposed to be reclaimed for a future park after the gravel pit extraction phase is complete.

A site plan and building elevation for the church site received approval by the City Council on August 5, 2004. Mark said on July 12, 2005 a request was made before the Planning Commission to determine whether or not there was a significant change to the Planned Development to allow Parcel 1.7 to be part of a townhome development. The request was tabled at the request of SITLA (property owner) due to findings on the designated use. Later Mr. Sean Glathar, applicant of the determination of signification change item acknowledged to City staff that they accept the request as a significant change and would process a zone change amendment.Mark said staff comments are that the residents of the Desert Hills Subdivision would like to see the existing use and density remain as currently approved (patio homes at 5.5 du/ac). Staff would prefer the proposed townhome development, the so-called “bubble” area of 11.5 acres with the proposed 9.0 dwelling units per acre be represented as a whole rather than trying to amend Parcel 1.7, then combine a portion of Parcel 2.1 and Parcel 2.2 with Parcel 1.7. SITLA provided a letter to the City committing to have a contiguous park of 12.5 acres to make up for the portion of the park that was developed with the Desert Hills Subdivision and the portion would be part of the proposed townhome development. The challenge is how the master plan is viewed. If the plan is to be amended, it should be shown as such. Even if the end result could be the same, it becomes difficult for the City to explain to present and future residents within the Hidden Valley Planned Development how a project was constructed that does not represent the approved master plan. Curt Gordan with SITLA said they are here today to ask for a change and amendment to their plans. This is the last piece in this area which can be serviced by the sewer extending south from Brigham Road. They would like to do 9.0 units per acre. They will not increase the density in the context of the overall master plan in fact their density will go down a little bit. They feel this is important in providing income to the trust beneficiaries and to provide some affordable housing. Sean Glathar, the developer, said they are taking in the site and roadway concerns. They have 49% of open space landscaping. The units they have designed will have separate entrances and single car garages. As well as having two parking stalls per unit. Acting Chairperson Myrna Stout stated into the record that staff received a letter of opposition from Rodney and Marcie Abramowski who reside in the Desert Hills subdivision.Scott Rockenwood represents the Desert Hills Subdivision. He wants to make note that he has a petition signed by the residents of Desert Hills in opposition to this change. They would like to propose this area to stay the way it is. The opposition is this is the exact gateway to their PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 23, 2005Page Ninecommunity. This will detract from their neighborhood. They have had the opportunity to meet with the developers twice. They made no suggestion to what they would do there. The residents of Desert Hills wants them to keep with the patio style homes that were originally planned. David Prisby said this is not only the gateway to their subdivision but it is also the gateway for the existing 350 acres which are left. David Owen said he purchased his property thinking he would have a church next to him and a park. Now he will have homes being built and townhomes where the church would be. Curt Gordan said they are proposing 96 units. Curt said Parcel 1.7 will not allow the number of units of what could be built per the Planned Development plan because this is a hill area. Acting Chairperson Myrna Stout asked if SITLA would be providing some kind of trail access down to the area of the park. Curt said it was never the plan to supply access from the Desert Hills subdivision area down to the park. Commissioner Clayton asked about Parcel 2.1. Curt said Parcel 2.1 will be lower in elevation than the Parcel 1.7. Curt said this is important for the rest of their development of this project. This will provide badly needed affordable housing for this area. Summer Miller said there is no feasible way they are going to make that park accessible for people who have disabilities. She is concerned about affordable housing. Starter homes don’t have to be condos they could be smaller homes. Scott Wood from Desert Hills would like to address the proposed park. He was told by Paul Jensen, developer of Desert Hills that there would be a church on Parcel 1.7 and the park on Parcel 2.2. Scott said he would like to know the proposed value of these homes. Brian Parker a resident from Desert Hills said he bought their home thinking they would have access to the park. The school currently has to have split sessions because of the increase of children in our area. If they add more residents it will only add to the problem. He understands the need for affordable housing but he doesn’t believe that they need more.Carol Sapp from Southern Utah Home Builders Association said what she is about to say is not in support of SITLA or the developer but is actually in response to the issue of density that is being opposed. She has been stating the need for housing for the work force in the St. George PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 23, 2005Page Tenarea for 15 years. Fear of the outsiders is what drives the fear of density. They also fear that people with lower income will not be like us. There is a comment made that the children will be effected. Some of these people who could move into these homes would be teachers with two incomes. The average cost for a Washington County home today is $263,000. Density is not the enemy - design is the enemy. Acting Chairperson Myrna Stout asked Mark if a zone change were approved based on the proposal changing the zoning to PD, if the project would come back to Planning Commission for review at some other time. Mark said this is an amendment to the PD. The Planning Commission could approve it with the condition that this area is tied to site plan and building elevations. If that was approved then the next time Planning Commission would see this it would be a preliminary plat. Any significant change to this would have to come back to Planning Commission. Mark clarified that SITLA has the right to develop as it has been approved. Commissioner Clayton asked why it is necessary to take the tip of the park. Curt replied the tip separates the homes from the rest of the park. Commissioner Clayton asked do you know how the four homes got build in the park area. Curt replied he does not.Commissioner Clayton asked the applicant how he proposed the public would access the park. Curt the representative from SITLA committed to providing access.Don Dalrymple pointed out the desert preserve. What impact will the high density do to this desert preserve. Commissioner Clayton said the violation is coming from people who do not live in this area who use the area as recreational vehicle trails. MOTION: Commissioner Clayton made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a request to amend the Hidden Valley Planned Development use and density for Parcel 1.7 (approx 4.86 acres). The approved current use for Parcel 1.7 is PUD 4,500 sq. ft. residential lots (patio home-type) at 5.5 dwelling units per acre. The proposed amendment is for townhomes at 9.0 dwelling units per acre.

Planning Commission Minutes 07/11/2006:
...the Milepost 2 I-15 interchange area. State and Institutional Trust Lands Administration, applicants. Case No. 2006-GPA-002Bob Nicholson said this is a refinement to the general plan designation for the area around the proposed Milepost 2 interchange. In 2002 when the General Plan was created this area was designated as a commercial bubble. The interchange design will be done in about 6-9 months and the interchange then will go out to bid. The proposed land uses map breaks down into more specific land uses. There was a Sun River neighborhood meeting on July 6th which had a big turnout to go over these proposed land uses. Bob said the applicants plan on a park near the Atkinville Wash area. Also, the Flying J gas station and truck fueling business located on Brigham Road could possibly be moved to this new location. There will be a freeway overpass which could hide the Flying J location. In the packet there is a breakdown of the land uses and the acreage for the west and east sides. Overall there is about 500 acres. SITLA has about 278 acres that is under their control. Bob also reviewed other land uses proposed for the interchange area.Curt Gordon with SITLA said this is a partnership between SILTA and the City. Their part is to give some of the land and money for this project. The person who put this land plan together is from San Diego. SITLA’s consulting planner is Gary Wood. Curt Gordon pointed out that the wash area was used for mining in the past. This interchange will go over I-15 instead of under it. They will try to get most of the required fill from the project itself instead of trucking it in. Chairman Almquist asked if the truck stop had to have its location right on the corner, or could it be further back from the corner. Curt replied the study committee concluded that this will be the best site for a truck stop to be located due to the screening effect of the new overpass. Robert Anderson who lives in Sun River said he and other residents from Sun River have concerns about some of the proposed land uses. The area near them is marked Mixed Use. He would like some clarification on that type of use. They are not in favor of moving the Flying J. They are not happy with what is being proposed. A resident of Sun River said there are a lot of good things in this plan. He is a little bit concerned about what the Mixed Use will mean. He would like to suggest that the area could have assisted living in the mixed use. His real concern is, does the Mixed Use mean apartments?PLANNING COMMISSIONJuly 11, 2006Page FourteenBob Nicholson said this will need to go to the City Council for a public hearing. Bob said one of the goals is to keep development out of the flood plain. Jay Sandberg said the washes are in the process of being mapped now. If they stay out of those flood plains, it will be preferred. MOTION: Commissioner Bracken made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a request for a General Plan Amendment to amend the General Plan Land Use Map to change the land use designation from only commercial to business park, public facilities, high-density residential, park, light industrial, and commercial for both the east and west side of the Milepost 2 I-15 interchange area, State and Institutional Trust Lands Administration, applicants, with a little bit of flexibility to stay out of...

...th/northwest of the Estates of Bloomington Subdivision. State Trust Lands Administration and Quality Development, applicants. Case No. 2006-GAP-001Bob Nicholson said there are two related requests before the Planning Commission tonight, the General Plan amendment and the zone change request. The area is along the ridge line overlooking Bloomington. The project is owned by SITLA. The area is very unique with numerous rock outcroppings throughout the 93 acre site. In their most recently proposal, the applicant has set aside certain areas for open space. They also propose to protect areas within the private lots which are outside the building pad area. There is also a large area currently outside the City boundary proposed as open space for a ‘City Rock Park’. The rock park area has large boulders of approximately 8 to 10 ft. tall. Adjacent to this area is a smaller area proposed for a developed City park. The applicant’s intent is to donate the rock park area to the City. Bob said staff is concerned about preserving the unique rock features both in the open space areas and within the proposed lots. Agreements need to be created for the open space donation and for preservation of other unique areas with rock outcropping.PLANNING COMMISSIONMarch 28, 2006Page EightBob said let’s consider these as separate items, 1) a general plan amendment and 2) a zone change request. Some of the rock formations remain mostly at the surface. Some are 10 ft. tall and some are fairly flat. Bob said staff has some concern about pads 60, 61 and 67 which are on the far west, and pad 20 which is further east.Curt Gordon with SITLA presented a slide show. There are special areas that will be dedicated as no disturb areas. Their intention is to have larger lots for this subdivision. The homes will be custom home sites. Curt said the private deed restriction area is about 45 acres. The area around the home will be left open. They want to preserve as much of the natural landscape as possible. Commissioner Campbell asked if on the pads the builder would build the pad up. Curt said they plan to deed restrict the pads against that. Each home will be looked at very closely. Curt said they don’t plan on having fencing to separate lots. Curt said they have done a great deal of preservation on this parcel. Kent Perkins, City Leisure Services Director said Bob Nicholson indicated that the developer would plan to dedicate the public park. He was hoping that the developer would explain what they plan on doing and then he would like to make comments on that.Curt Gordan with SITLA said they plan on bringing a road around the open space. There is also a place for a trail head. There will also be a trail along the ridge overlooking Bloomington which should be a natural trail. The other trails will be a paved surface. They would like to see a public park built before the subdivision is started. It is not their intent to build a park for the City then give it to them and then have them collect impact fees for the project. That is not what they want to do. But they will set that piece aside for a park. Kent Perkins said the City’s concern is the approval process and how the proposed park is to be deeded to the City. His concern is that once they receive approval on this development that they will do something else with the discussed park area. He feels there needs to be a mechanism so that both sides are honored in that regard. Kent explained the concern of applicants going through the approval process and find out later that there is a change of heart and then the land won’t be deeded to the City and at some point it could be developed. Commissioner Clayton said it his understanding that a zone change request cannot have conditions attached and that would include this General Plan as well. Is that correct? Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston replied you are correct. Commissioner Clayton said the applicants are setting aside some sensitive areas and in the process they identify property that will be gifted to the City. Chairman Almquist said their motivation would be to keep with the General Plan.PLANNING COMMISSIONMarch 28, 2006Page NineMark Bradley said as the Planning Commission considers this they need to be aware of the comments in the General Plan. He referred to Section 6.10.1 Open Space Policies of the General Plan. Open space on the general plan is not a holding designation for future development. It is intended to be preserved permanently free from development left in a natural state and/or use for recreational purposes such as parks, golf courses and pedestrian/bicycle trails. Mark said the Planning Commission needs to ask themselves why take open space and zone it to R-1-40 and then use it as open space park land. There needs to be ways to protect these rock areas. If this request is approved there is no guarantee that these open space and rock outcropping areas would be preserved as shown on the applicants exhibits. Commissioner Taylor said it can be addressed with the preliminary plat. Mark said there could be a volunteer development agreement attached to this request.Curt Gordan said even though they are private owners they do have rules in which to work. The way to protect it is to give open space land to the City. Bob Nicholson said if they rezone the entire acreage to R-1-40 then technically they could come back in with 91 acres. Do they want to zone it all and then dedicate the portions to Open Space or word it so the open space is dedicated to the City. So if they subtract the 35 open space acres from the 91 acres. Jeff Morbey said the concept is similar to Webb Hill. At that time they worked out an agreement for the open space. It seems to him that it worked well.Curt said he thinks that Planning Commission and City Council has total control. He said if the Planning Commission did approve what has been proposed tonight the plans will come back to you. MOTION: Commissioner Clayton made a motion to recommend to City Council approval to amend the General Plan - Land Use Map to change the land use designation of Open Space to Very Low Density Residential (up to 1 du/ac) on 93.51 acres on property located west of Tonaquint Drive, south of the Tonaquint Terrace Subdivision, and north/northwest of the Estates of Bloomington Subdivision. State Trust Lands Administration and Quality Development, applicants. Commissioner Taylor seconded the motion. All voted aye.PUBLIC HEARING - ZONE CHANGESA.

State Trust Lands Administration and Quality Development, applicants. Case No. 2006-ZC-007Bob Nicholson said the issue has been out on the table for this item. The maximum number of units will be 78 lots on this 93 acres and the area shown as open space will be that way. Commissioner Clayton said he assumes there will be CC&R’s as a part of this subdivision. Kurt said that is correct.Chairman Almquist complimented SITLA on a well done subdivision. Commissioner Campbell asked about the privacy walls. Kurt said they find to be successful with the walls that they require them to be attached to home as part of the architecture of the house. They will write restrictions that will not allow people to push the privacy walls way out on the building envelope.Commissioner Burks asked went they come in with the preliminary plat could it be conditioned that the development will not start until traffic control on Dixie Drive is completed. Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston said she would have to look into that one.MOTION: Commissioner Clayton made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a zone change request from OS (Open Space) to R-1-40 (Single Family Residential) on 93.51 acres located west of Tonaquint Drive, south of the Tonaquint Terrace Subdivision, and north/northwest of the Estates of Bloomington Subdivision.

The property was recently rezoned from Open Space and Mining and Grazing to PD (Planned Development Residential/Commercial). Case No. 2006-ZC-023 Case No. 2007-HS-005Planner Ray Snyder said this is a request to modify a previously approved hillside development permit for excavation work around the proposed Milepost 2 (Atkinville Interchange). The hillside area is located on the east side of the proposed interchange. The Hillside Overlay Zone area covers only a portion of the proposed excavation area. A number of small hills on the east side of the freeway are proposed to be removed. The site has approximately 153 acres, within the Hillside Overlay Zone.Ray pointed out staff comments;1. The small hills which are not part of the larger hillside formation were approved to be removed as part of the interchange excavation and provide needed fill dirt for the project.2. Previously HSRB approved a cut up to ten feet (10') high at the toe of the main hill. The applicants are requesting a cut up to twenty feet (20') along the toe of the hill. The applicants will explain the need for such at the meeting.PLANNING COMMISSIONApril 10, 2007Page NineRay stated that on March 21, 2007, the HSRB made a site visit and made the following motion; a motion to accept the SITLA - Exit 2 South Block hillside mass grading plan, as presented with the exception that the northeast portion as highlighted on the plan on this date (3/21/07) not exceed a maximum of a 20-foot cut.MOTION: Commissioner Campbell made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a request to modify a previously approved hillside development permit for excavation work around the proposed Milepost 2 (Atkinville Interchange).

...e is complete. The request is from SITLA (State Institutional Trust Lands Administration), Mr. Kyle Pasley, representative. SITLA, Alliance Consulting, and Quality Excavation are co-applicants. The property is located southeast of Milepost 2 in the vicinity of Atkinville Wash and Lizard Wash area. It is proposed that extraction be performed in two phases; Phase 1A on 4.5 acres and Phase 1B on 4 acres. The property is zoned Mining and Grazing. Case No. 2007-CUP-005PLANNING COMMISSIONMarch 27, 2007Page FourPlanner Ray Snyder presented an aerial view of the site. Ray said this request is to operate a five-year gravel extraction site to provide material for Milepost 2 area “J” and other projects in the south. It is proposed that extraction be performed in two phases, Phase 1A on 4.5 acres and Phase 1B on 4 acres. The area is proposed to be reclaimed/mitigated for a future public work after the gravel pit extraction phase is complete.Ray said the applicant will need to submit a truck hauling/traffic route/plan to the City Traffic Engineer for review and approval. The applicant proposes to operate from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Some night time operation not to exceed 10 days per month may occur. Typically the operation would be Monday through Friday. The applicant claims the area is cleared of archeological sensitive finds during ownership by the BLM.Ray said approval is recommended for this new site contingent upon the following recommended conditions; 1. Provide a site mitigation plan; the gravel pit(s) are to be mitigated (refill with soil and have compaction certified). This includes a geotechnical report and testing to the satisfaction of the Engineering Department. 2. Reclaimed site to become a public park. 3. A dust control plan shall be submitted. 4. The applicant shall demonstrate the water source for dust control to the satisfaction of the City. 5. All stock piling to the satisfaction of the Engineering Department. 6. A channelization study is required. 7. A Flood Plain Development Permit is required to be processed with the City Engineer. 8. A Stream Alteration Permit is required to be processed with the State Engineer. 9. As applicable; FEMA permits to be obtained. 10. Provide a fencing plan (identify wash boundaries). 11. The truck route shall be approved by the City Traffic Engineer.Development Project Manager Bill Swenson said working times seem acceptable. He is concerned about the air quality. During night time the air quality is compressed. Planning Commission may want to look at other operations than during night time hours.Bill Swenson said the standard hours of operation would be acceptable which would be 6 a.m -6 p.m. The staff could extend those hours during the summer hours.Commissioner Campbell asked after they excavated the gravel out of this area is this depression going to be separate from the wash or will be integral with the wash. A representative from Alliance Consulting replied that in the park area they are trying to keep the wash completely PLANNING COMMISSIONMarch 27, 2007Page Fiveseparate from the park as of yet. They are in the process of doing some flood plain studies. The stock pile on the other side is strictly going to be used for UDOT in the future. Commissioner Taylor asked if the pit will be mined to a depth deeper than the wash that it might backfill with water from the wash. Alliance Consulting replied it is possible but they are far away from the active channel right now. It is their intent to fill the mining area with waste material. MOTION: Commissioner Taylor made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a request for a conditional use permit for operation of a five-year gravel extraction site to provide material for Milepost 2 Area “J” and other projects in the south block. The area is proposed to be reclaimed for a future park after the gravel pit extraction phase is complete, with this modification with regard to hours that the statement some night time operation not exceed 10 days per month may occur should be deleted and hours of operation should be 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. except for some extension to daylight saving time and staff approved.

...Milepost 2/Atkinville interchange. SITLA (State Institutional Trust Lands Administration), applicant. Case No. 2006-HS-012PLANNING COMMISSIONSeptember 26, 2006Page SixteenBob Nicholson, Community Development Director presented the staff report. The request was to obtain a hillside development permit for excavation work around the proposed Milepost 2. The hillside area is located on the east side of the proposed interchange. A maximum 10-foot cut was allowed beyond the two hills. A nearby limestone quarry was identified. Ray Snyder said the limestone in the quarry is approximately 20 ft. deep therefore cutting there could be potentially there that deep. A quarry should be reviewed after submittal of grading plans. The Hillside Review Board decided to leave it up to staff and they would not get a grading permit until staff was satisfied. The Hillside Review Board made a motion to approve as presented with the following conditions;1) Permission is granted to remove hills #1 & #2 as presented (these hills are located within the hillside overlay zone).2) Permission is granted to remove hills #3 & #4 as presented (these hills are outside of the hillside overlay zone).3) In addition to the removal of hills #1 & #2 any cuts over ten feet (10') shall require a grading plan and additional review by the Hillside Review Board. 4) A temporary orange construction limit fencing shall be installed during all construction activities.Commissioner Campbell recognized that some hillsides are more significant than others and asked if the hillside proposed for removal was determined to be insignificant. Curt Gordon of SITLA responded by saying if it were removed, another larger one could be seen behind it. He did not believe it would be missed. Chairman Almquist remarked that it was determined on site that hills one and two were not significant. In response to a question raised by Commissioner Burks, Mr. Gordon stated that the areas excavated would be treated to look finished.

Cody Schmitt Named Deputy Director, St. George Recreation Press Release 03/14/2019:
... his wife’s home town. Cody recently completed his Masters of public administration through SUU.   “I met my wife, Chandra, in my second year and Utah State. Her specialty is elementary education, which is a good thing, since we have six children, four girls and two boys, ranging in age from 17 down to 3 years. We’re a big rambunctious family,” said Cody.   Although Cody’s transition from Landscape architecture to public administration to Recreation is unusual, it fits with both his background and his vision for public service to make an impact on his community.   “When I was deciding what to go into to get my bachelor's degree, I had several interests which could feed into my chosen major. I really loved the outdoors. I was very athletic growing up, liked recreation programs and being outdoors with nature. Another passion was the art of design. After I researched it a little more, I realized that landscape was the nature side of architecture.”   After working in the field for a few years after graduation, Cody realized that to have more of the impact in the community, he needed to do have expertise in something besides landscape architecture.   “I realized, if I want to manage or have a role in the political process or a role in people's lives in the community, I would need to further my education and obtain a Masters of Public Administration.”   When asked about his management style, Cod...
