Net Metering Information:
...the net metering program works before you sign a purchase agreement.  Contact the Energy Services Department to review how the program works and/or review the program documents at the bottom of the page.   The City adopted a Net Metering Program in 2005 and revised the program in 2015.  The 2015 revisions included implementation of the following fees.    One Time Fees: Application Fee Bi-directional Meter Fee   Monthly Solar Reliability Fee Based on the kWh produced by the system   The “RESOURCES” section below contains the documents related to the Net Metering Program.   Net Metering Program – this document explains the program and the requirements customers have to meet to participate.  This is an informational document.   Net Metering Application – this is the document that must be filled out and submitted to the Energy Services Department to start the process. This document contains some technical information requests.  The customer or a third party may complete this document.   Net Metering Agreement – this document is an agreement with the customer and the city regarding the responsibilities of each party with regard to the solar PV system operation.  This document requires a customer’s notarized signature.   Net Metering Appendix – this document details the fees related to the program and the calculation of the monthly solar reliability charge and the annual buy back of any excess energy the customer generated.  This is an informational document.      Common questions related to the Net Metering Program   If you are considering installing solar PV on your home or business, there are several questions to ask in order to make an informed decision.    What is roof top solar?   Roof top solar typically refers to solar Photovoltaic (PV) system installed on a roof which generates energy from the sun to power a person’s home or business.   What terms do I need to understand about solar PV systems?   Behind the customer meter: The system is located so that any generated electricity flows first the customer, if the customer needs more energy than the solar PV is generating, St. George delivers the energy to you from the electrical grid.  For example, if your home uses 100 kWh a day and your system produces 80 kWh per day, you will receive 20 kWh a day from the electrical grid.   kW: Kilowatt – is equal to 1,000 watts.  A solar PV system capacity is measured in kW.  For example a 3 kW system would have the ability to produce 3 kW of demand (which is the maximum of energy output at a moment in time).    kWh – kilowatt hour – is a measurement of energy, it is a kW multiplied by the time in hours.  For instance 2 kW for 1 hour is 2 kWh. Customers are billed based on how many kWh consumed in a billing cycle.   For example if you have a 3 kW system (shown above) and it generated 3 kW for 1 hour, it would produce 3 kWh of energy. It is estimated that a 3 kW system in St. George has the potential of generating 5,193 kWh in a 12 month period. The energy produced would go first to your home and then if any more energy is needed, St. George would deliver energy to you from the electrical grid.   How much will a solar PV system cost?  Solar PV system costs can vary depending on many factors such as the size or capacity of the system.  Some questions to ask may be:   How large of a system do I need?   This question addresses what is termed “name plate capacity” of a solar PV system and is expressed in kilowatts (kW).  The capacity of the system will tell you how much energy the system will generate.  For example a 3 kW system is expected to generate 5,193 kWh in a year.   PV Watts Calculator is a website that can provide an estimate of how many kWh’s you will save based on the system size.  The website is http://pvwatts.nrel.gov/    How can I find my utility information?   Contact the St. George City at 435-627-4095 to request a copy of your energy use history.   Will the system be installed on the roof of my home, roof of an unattached garage or on the ground?   That is a question for your installer to answer.  You should check with the City Building Department to determine the requirements.  435-627-4000   Will the system include a battery bank to provide back-up power in the event of a utility power disruption?   That is a question for your installer to answer.      What are the fees and when do I have to pay them?   The fees and how they are calculated are listed in the Net Metering Appendix which found in the Resources section of the Net Metering page on the City’s website.  www.sgcity.org   Can I install a solar PV system on my house?   Yes a homeowner or business owner can install their own solar PV system.  However, a licensed electrician will be required to handle the interconnection with the utility.  An individual installing their own system will need to follow the net metering program requirements.   How do I find a solar contractor?   St. George requires all solar contractors to have a City business license and to have completed the pre-qualified solar contractor class.  For a list of contractors that have met this requirement please contact 435-627-4095   It is recommended that you obtain more than o...

St. George City Council Minutes February 17, 2000 Page Three CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider a request for approval of a conditional use permit to use a modular unit for a temporary classroom at Valor Hall private school located at 696 South Dixie Drive. Barbara Christian/Richard Downer, applicants. Associate Planner Jim McGuire advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting of February 8, 2000 recommended approval of a conditional use permit to use a modular trailer for temporary classrooms while the main building of Valor Hall private school is being remodeled. The school is located in an R-1-10 zone . There are 52 students currently enrolled, and the request is for up to 90 students. The music school previously approved at this location was for up to 100 students. The applicants said they would paint the trailer to match the building, and would like to use it for one year, but could get by with less time is required. The City?s Fire Marshall inspected the building and has given the applicants a list of items that must be done. There was also a large pile of debris on site that has since been removed. A City business license is also required. They are proposing 15 faculty and staff. The Planning Commission recommended approval subject to the modular trailer being removed after one year, the debris be cleaned within 90 days, there be a maximum of 90 students and 15 faculty/staff, a business license be obtained, and the school comply with the Fire Marshall?s requirements. A motion was made by Councilmember Allen to approve the conditional use permit subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner. Councilmember Whatcott inquired if the applicant had a one year lease, and if so, why the trailer would be needed. The applicant was not present and no one knew the length of the lease. Councilmember Allen amended her motion to approve subject to actual remodeling of the existing building and procurement of a building permit for the remodeling. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott, and all voted aye. ADD TO NON-CONFORMING BUILDING: Associate Planner Jim McGuire advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held February 8, 2000, recommended approval to enclose a porch that is nonconforming as to setback and is attached to a house located in an R-1-8 zone at 2427 East 40 North. Coquette Jacobson is the applicant. The home was built two feet from the side property line and the porch was built 1 1/2 feet from the same property line, both receiving a variance on July 19, 1994. The applicant would now like to enclose the porch. Councilmember Isom clarified that the footprint of the building would not be increased.

The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott, and all voted aye. FEE WAIVER FOR USE OF PARK: Consider a request for a fee waiver for use of Worthen Park for Flag Day on June 14. Russell Bezette, applicant. City Manager Gary Esplin advised staff recommends support of the Dixie Elks Lodge in this activity, and recommends waiver of the fee for use of the park or a Flag Day ceremony. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve waiver of the fee for use of the park on Flag Day for a Flag Day ceremony. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen, and all voted aye. BEER LICENSE: Consider a request for approval of a beer license for a convenience store at 810 E. St. George Blvd. David Terry, applicant. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the existing convenience store currently has a beer license, and this request would not be for an additional license, just a change in ownership. A background check on the applicant was performed with no negative results. A motion was made by Councilmember Isom to approve the beer license. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen, and all voted aye. MAINTAIN LANDSCAPING ON MAJOR COLLECTOR ROAD: Consider a request, under City policy, to maintain landscaping on a major collector road at 10 South 2450 East for the Cloverland and Copper Hills Subdivisions. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the City has received a request to maintain landscaping adjacent to a major collector road at 10 South 2450 East. Under current City policy, a developer can request that the City St. George City Council Minutes February 17, 2000 Page Five maintain landscaping within City right-of-way along a 66' or 80' major collector road. Staff recommends that this policy be reconsidered at a future date as the burden on City staff to maintain these areas is becoming great. However, staff recommends approval of this request. The landscaping will consist of ground cover and trees with no lawn. The change in policy will be discussed at the next City Council work meeting. A motion was made by Councilmember Isom to approve the request subject to inspection and approval by City staff of the landscaping. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Orton, and all voted aye. AIRPORT GROUND LEASE: Consider a request for approval of an airport ground lease for the Chaney Family Trust at the municipal airport. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve the airport ground lease as requested. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott, and all voted aye. AMENDMENT TO PROFESSIONAL SERVICES AGREEMENT: Consider approval of an amendment to the professional services agreement with Creamer & Noble Inc. for the proposed new airport project. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the City is currently in the middle of a final environmental review and compiling a report to the FAA. The City has been asked to include noise studies, and because of the change to the scope of the project, additional compensation is due to the project engineer. The total of the project to date is $506,847, and the original contract was for $219,000, but due to the requests for noise analyses and environmental assessments, the cost has increased. The FAA will pay 92% of the cost, with the remainder being the City?s portion. A motion was made by Councilmember Allen to approve the amendment to the professional services agreement as requested. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner, and all voted aye. ABANDONMENT: Consider a request to abandon small parcels of property. adjacent to the Sunbrook Golf Course and certain rights-of-way in Sunbrook Canyonview Ridge Phase 3 Subdivision. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the City has received a request to abandon small parcels of property and easements in the Sunbrook Canyon View Ridge Phase 3 Subdivision adjacent to several homes. The property is raw and is not being maintained and is out of play. In order to sell the small portions of property, easements will have to be abandoned and relocated. The plat will be amended to show the new easements, and the property will be sold for $1 per sq. ft, per City policy. A motion was made by Councilmember Orton to sell several small parcels of property to adjacent homeowners in the Sunbrook Canyon View Ridge Phase 3 Subdivision. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Isom, and all voted aye. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution abandoning certain easements in the Sunbrook Canyon View Ridge Phase 3 Subdivison. A motion was made by Councilmember Whatcott to abandon by resolution certain easements in the Sunbrook Canyon View Ridge Phase 3 Subdivision St. George City Council Minutes February 17, 2000 Page Six as requested. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner. A roll call vote was taken and all voted aye. PROPERTY EXCHANGE: Consider a request for approval of a property exchange between the City and IHC along Halfway Wash. City Manager Gary Esplin explained this request would affect property proposed for a trail located south of Sunset Blvd. as it comes under the road across from Wendy?s adjacent to the new credit union along Halfway Wash. The City previously purchased additional property from Mr. Carter and is exchanging the same amount of property back to IHC in exchange for a trail through the area which will finish the trail project. A motion was made by Councilmember Allen to approve the property exchange. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner, and all voted aye. Mayor McArthur invited several more Scouts in the audience to introduce themselves. PUBLIC HEARING/CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Public hearing to consider a request to designate the home at 306 South Main as a landmark site and consider a request for approval of a conditional use permit for an office in the Samuel Miles home landmark site located at 306 South Main. Louis Sylvester, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that Mr. Sylvester owns the home at 306 South Main which was built during the years 1865-1872 by Samuel Miles. If the property is designated as a landmark site, a conditional use permit can be requested for commercial uses. The applicant will live on site and proposes to operate a financial counseling and investment planning business from the home. He does not want to change the character of the site and is requesting street parking since he will not have more than two clients on the property at a time. A sign no larger than nine sq. ft. is requested. The Planning Commission recommends approval subject to no more than two clients (or sets of clients in the case of couples) at a time, no more than two employees (including the applicant), and a sign no larger than nine sq. ft. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. He advised he had received one letter in opposition. A motion was made by Councilmember Allen to approve, by ordinance, landmark site designation as requested. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott. A roll call vote was taken and all voted aye. A motion was made by Councilmember Allen to approve the conditional use permit as requested, subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott, and all voted aye. PUBLIC HEARING: Public hearing to consider a request for a zone change from R-1-10 Single Family Residential along with the amendment of an existing PD Commercial zone to a new PD Commercial zone for a Walmart Superstore to be located on the northwest corner of Pioneer Road and Young Street. Walmart, Inc., applicant. Mayor McArthur advised anyone wishing to make comments to fill out a card, and time would be limited to four minutes each initially. After St. George City Council Minutes February 17, 2000 Page Seven everyone had a chance to speak, if new information needed to be brought forth, an opportunity to speak again would be provided. He advised the audience to maintain order and show respect for others? opinions. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised the 26 acres of property in question is zoned R-1-10 for the south 1/3 of the property, and the northern 2/3 is presently zoned PD Commercial. The General Plan, as well as the original Bloomington Master Plan, designates the property as future commercial, however it does not say what type of commercial. The applicant proposed a 183,645 sq. ft. superstore plus four outpads near Pioneer Street, however, the use or design of those pads will not be part of the present zoning hearing. The proposed superstore will be brown and tan brick and stucco in a southwest design. The PD zone requires the applicant to submit a site plan, elevations, and list of uses or potential uses, and the applicant is then limited to those plans and uses only. Any change to the plans would require another public hearing. Planning Commission concerns included building aesthetics, and the plan has since been modified to a southwest design. The building will be 29' in height, and there will be a 25' minimum landscape strip along Pioneer Street, and a landscaped area adjacent to Young Street. A sign would be limited to a monument-type sign with a maximum of 10' in height from grade. Noisier aspects of the building such as a garden center and automotive service center were moved to the north side of the building to keep the noise away from residential areas. The applicant is proposing a 3' berm with an 8' wall along the property line adjacent to the residential area. Traffic concerns were a major issue of concern for the Planning Commission, as the store would generate 8,410 new trips per day and 691 peak hour trips. Councilmember Gardner inquired if a peak hour trip were one direction only, and Mr. Nicholson informed him that was correct. Mr. Nicholson advised a traffic study had been prepared which indicated the project would require two traffic signals plus road widening and restriping. Walmart will pay all of these costs, however, a long term or permanent solution would be placement of two roundabouts, one on each side of the I-15. Staff feels this is a better solution than the traffic signals. The Planning Commission voted 6-1 to recommend approval. Lowry Snow advised the official name of the applicant is Pacific Land Design, whom he represents. Pacific Land Design is acting on behalf of the property owner, Mr. Magleby, and Walmart. He advised the City Council is in possession of a letter from Columbia Hospital indicating they do not oppose the zone change. Daphne Davis, Community Affairs Director for Walmart Stores, advised the proposed superstore will combine general merchandise with a full grocery store. She advised that when considering such a significant business investment, Walmart takes into account its means of continuing to offer selection, quality, and value. The new store will provide a better shopping experience and afford more room to better maintain the facility. The new store will provide an opportunity for hiring by increasing the work force by a few hundred, and will continue to support local non-profit organizations. Councilmember Isom advised she heard a Walmart was being proposed for Mesquite, Nevada. She inquired what formula was used in order to determine where new stores will be built, and which stores will be closed. Ms. Davis replied Walmart looks for opportunities to better serve its customers. Chris Calloway, Walmart real estate manager for the area, advised he did not know of any formal plans for a Mesquite store. St. George City Council Minutes February 17, 2000 Page Eight Mayor McArthur inquired if the Utah and the Nevada areas overlapped. Mr. Calloway advised there is another real estate manager for Arizona and Nevada. Ms. Davis advised that with regard to closing stores, Walmart on occasion looks at replacing facilities. Councilmember Orton inquired what additional services would be provided from the Walmart superstore. Ms. Davis responded in addition to general merchandise and groceries, the store would have an optical center, a one hour photo center, a tire center and lube express, and the area across the front of the store would be available for lease to a bank, hair salon, postal service, dry cleaners, video store, etc., based on the market inside the store. Councilmember Orton inquired if gas pumps were part of the plan. Ms. Davis responded Walmart was working with vendors to do a partnership to lease space to them for a gas station. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised all uses would have to be listed in the PD text. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson responded that the PD text simply notes retail uses, and does not list an optical center, pharmacy, etc., under the broad category of retail merchandise in general. Councilmember Orton inquired if approval of the gas pumps were being considered as part of this request. Community Development Bob Nicholson responded the applicant would have to come back with the request for gas pumps as it was not part of the building itself. Joe Geivett, project engineer for Walmart, presented the site plan and a computer generated presentation. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised the rezone request is for eight acres, or three lots which are zoned R-1-10. Councilmember Whatcott stated the eight acres comprises three parcels of property, not three building lots. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised the eight acres are master planned as future commercial. Hal Magleby. property owner, advised he purchased part of the old Terracor Subdivision before it was annexed to the City. In 1982 at the time of annexation, the property came in as R-1-10 as a holding zone, including the property upon which the convenience store is now located. In 1982 and 1983 extensive meetings were held which resulted in a new master plan. The only reason the three parcels of property remained R-1-10 zoning is because there has never been an application to change the zone for these parcels of property. They were simply being held as R-1-10 until a situation arose such as this. Councilmember Gardner requested clarification about any restrictions on the deeds for property in the Casa Del Rio Subdivision. St. George City Council Minutes February 17, 2000 Page Nine Mr. Magelby responded that when the Casa Del Rio Subdivision was subdivided and developed, a portion of the residents of the subdivision were put on notice that all of the land was designated commercial. A deed restriction prohibits them from now objecting to a commercial use. David Hauser, architect for the Walmart project, presented building elevations. Grant Schultz, traffic consultant for Walmart, explained the traffic impact study and presented a video of a roundabout in Vail, Colorado. He advised that the proposed roundabouts would accommodate single, double and triple trailer trucks. The outer diameter of the proposed roundabout is 200'-210'. He presented an aerial photo of the site showing the two proposed roundabouts. He advised there would be one lane in the center circles. Councilmember Gardner requested clarification of the projected traffic counts and cost of roundabouts and other traffic-related improvements. Mr. Schultz responded he estimated cost for the whole interchange, both sides, at $1,000,000. This figure is based on advantages this project would have that others would not, such as pricing that would be able to be obtained through a larger project and economies of scale. Councilmember Gardner inquired if Walmart would pay for the total improvement of the intersection and roundabouts on both sides of the interchange. Mr. Schultz responded that Walmart would contribute those funds required for traffic signals plus some additional funds to develop the interchange. Walmart is also paying for the feasibility study with UDOT for the roundabouts. The final amount Walmart is willing to pay will be determined by the feasibility study. Walmart is willing to pay their fair share of the interchange, plus more, but cannot commit to pay for the total improvements because the scope of the project is not known. Walmart cannot commit to 100% right now. Mayor McArthur advised that the City cannot make someone do more than their share of the impact on the system. Lowry Snow stated Walmart is ready to fund their impact according to the study submitted to the City, which is the proposal for traffic signals. Signaling will handle the traffic problems at an estimated cost of $500,000. This amount Walmart will pay. They will also go one step further, if it makes sense for the City to find a long range solution, and work with the City. A joint effort will be required, however, and there may be sources of funding from UDOT. He submitted a document for the record - a letter from Allan Carter concerning the covenant which runs with respect to all of the Casa Del Rio Subdivision. Councilmember Isom advised she would not base her decision on emotions, but would do what was best for the welfare and safety of the citizens, based on the community as a whole. She expressed concern that Walmart was building two stores in such close proximity to each other, and inquired what formula Walmart used to determine if two stores were viable. Ms. Davis replied Walmart determines that based on its prior experience, population base, retail need, average household income, amount of shopping available at the present time, and retail sales in the overall market. The best factor for determining this is that Walmart has been operating for years, has experience in the communities, and knows how many people it takes to serve a particular store. St. George City Council Minutes February 17, 2000 Page Ten Councilmember Gardner inquired if Walmart had closed any stores across the nation. Ms. Davis replied it was uncommon, and in most cases it was not a closure, but a relocation or improvement to the store to increase service to the community. Councilmember Gardner inquired what type of commitment could Walmart give to build if its request was approved. Chris Calloway, Walmart real estate manager for Utah, replied he could not give a guarantee, but advised Walmart has every intention of building. Councilmember Whatcott inquired how many other non-metropolitan areas of 70,000 or less in population have two Super Walmarts. Mr. Calloway replied there were no statistics to date, but there are several examples. Councilmember Whatcott requested their names and locations. Ray Draper, Bloomington Community Council Chairman, advised Walmart has worked with them to redesign the building. At the two community meetings held, most seemed to be opposed to the project, but afterward he had many people come up to him and voice their approval of the project. He stated that traffic will be the biggest problem, and advised against the traffic signals and urged approval of the roundabouts. Mayor McArthur called for a five minute break. The meeting was again called to order. City Attorney Jonathan Wright urged the audience to keep their emotions in check and be respectful of others? opinions. Mayor McArthur advised that because of the amount of people wishing to speak, they will be given three minutes each. If there is additional time at the end of the comments, it will be given, and everyone will have a chance to speak who wishes to. He opened the public hearing. Councilmember Orton read a disclosure of interest statement. He advised he would fairly and impartially consider the evidence presented in making his decision on the zone change. Councilmember Gardner assured the audience that the City Council takes public hearings seriously and have come with open minds and are anxious to make a good decision. Scott Munson, UDOT District Engineer for the Cedar District, advised his obligation is to protect the 17,000+ travelers a day who use the State?s system. He advised UDOT?s relationship with Sear Brown and their requests for information has been professionally handled. As far as an agreement for the cost of a portion of the project, there might be a possibility, but it would have to be worked out. However, at present UDOT has no plans to provide any money for improvements to the intersection at issue, and the process to procure money would be a five year long process and would have to compete with all other projects for state and federal highway funds. Councilmember Orton inquired if UDOT were proposing any roundabouts through the State of Utah. Mr. Munson replied UDOT is currently looking at constructing one at Exit 10, the Washington Interchange. It has been funded for the 2002 fiscal year, St. George City Council Minutes February 17, 2000 Page Eleven however, he has reason to believe the Commission is prepared to fund that portion of project ahead of schedule. Councilmember Orton inquired of Mr. Munson if in his opinion the roundabout as proposed would work. Mr. Munson replied that based on Sear Brown?s analysis, UDOT engineers feel comfortable with it. Frankie Pepito, a resident of Bloomington, advised Walmart?s study did not address traffic coming from the Green Valley area through Bloomington?s residential neighborhoods. Bloomington is an equestrian area with over 100 horses, and has the largest active 4H Club in the area. An equestrian arena has also been approved for the Bloomington Park area and additional traffic is therefore a big concern. She advised two Super Walmarts in such close proximity would be detrimental to downtown businesses. She advised a better location would be at the new southern corridor interchange. Ben McMahon, expressed support for the proposed Walmart store. He stated he thought it was time Bloomington grew up and joined the City in sharing the traffic burden. He advised he contacted Walmart about constructing a freeway off-ramp at the end of Pioneer Road. Brian Chadaz, Chairman of the St. George Area Chamber of Commerce, and on behalf of the Community Action Committee and Board of Directors, requested the City Council maintain their focus on the welfare of the area residents. If concerns are adequately addressed, free enterprise should take its course. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised the City Council will base its decision on land use, not on the economic viability of the applicant. Raymond Kuhne stated he did not think the City Council could evaluate all the data received and make a decision tonight. He stated he thought some of the data was false, particularly traffic volumes. Steve Lewis, a resident of Bloomington, urged the City Council to protect Bloomington residents? investment and way of life as stated in the City?s Zoning Handbook. As defined in the Handbook, planned development is to ensure compatibility of the intended development with existing development, and the proposed Walmart project is not compatible due to traffic and safety issues. He stated a monstrous 24 hour retail project would be detrimental to the surrounding quiet residential neighborhoods. Lloyd Paulsen reviewed the history of the zoning of the Bloomington area. The area, as zoned by the Washington County Planning Commission, was zoned R-1-10 when it came into the City, and Bloomington has always considered itself to be a residential community. When he bought his property in Bloomington 23 years ago, he was told the area would always be residential, and many people believe Bloomington should remain residential. Scott Lee advised he was an expert on highway safety and had previously submitted his credentials. He advised his questions were not answered by the presentation of Walmart, nor was the formula provided which was used to calculate additional traffic flow from the Green Valley area. He advised there is no data available for this. He advised he requested specifications from Chapin Burkes on the roundabout in Houston, but has not received that information. Paul Wilson, a resident of the Casa Del Rio Subdivision, advised he was not opposed to PD Commercial zoning, but was opposed to the Walmart project St. George City Council Minutes February 17, 2000 Page Twelve as it was too big and would have too many negative impacts upon the community. He expressed concern about traffic problems and the safety of children and senior citizens in the area, and pollution. He expressed concern with environmental issues and urged the City Council to study the environmental impacts. He also expressed concern that property values would diminish. Wes Waters expressed support for Walmart and stated it would provide convenience. Walmart has met all impact concerns and would provide jobs for youth and mature citizens. Walmart also has a positive impact on philanthropic projects. Tom McArthur stated the Walmart traffic study was not comprehensive enough and did not cover the Man O War Bridge, Bloomington Drive, Dixie Drive, and Tonaquint Drive. He advised the increased traffic would be a tremendous safety problem for children and large animals, particularly at Bloomington Drive and Man O War Bridge and Sugar Leo. Lee Fife expressed concern that the financial resources of Walmart be utilized to help with traffic improvements which will need to be done as the area develops. Walmart has great borrowing power and over time the City could reimburse them for costs. He advised the proposed store will bring economic benefit to the area because of the freeway location and its exposure. Jim Lundberg advised the present interchange was built for a residential area many years ago and is now at capacity. He stated he did not think the proposed roundabouts would fit, and a large project is trying to be shoe-horned into a small area. He suggested the City work with Walmart to move them to the new south interchange, and Bloomington be maintained as a residential area. He expressed concern about expected traffic increase on Sugar Leo and urged rejection of the project. Royce Jones, a 15 year resident of Bloomington, advised the crux of the issue is private property rights, and the owner of the property has a right to develop it. He advised the area is master planned as commercial, and Walmart has made concessions in every area. He stated traffic at the interchange is a problem, with or without Walmart, and the City now has an opportunity to make positive changes with Walmart?s help. He expressed support for the roundabouts and stated it would be in the best interests of the City that they be completed concurrently with the opening of the store. He stated the American free enterprise system should be allowed to run its course. Sydney Davis advised the City needed the services provided by Walmart, and they have been very involved in working with youth groups and fundraising activities. She advised Walmart would be an asset to the community, but the traffic problems at the intersection of Pioneer and Brigham Roads needed to be addressed. She stated all have to share in the burden of growth. Liz Lewis, a resident of Bloomington, expressed concern about the representations made by the Bloomington Community Council, and advised they made no appreciable effort to gather any input from the Bloomington community at large. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised the City Council would not make its decision based on numbers for or against the project. Ms. Lewis replied the Bloomington Community Council has influence on the City Council, yet it does not represent the majority of Bloomington St. George City Council Minutes February 17, 2000 Page Thirteen residents, and that is an issue. She advised there were significant issues still not settled, and inquired if verbal promises would be enforced. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised the City would not be relying on any verbal promises, and everything agreed upon would be put in writing. Ms. Lewis inquired as to the dimensions of the store. Steve Kemp advised the back way through Bloomington is not the fastest way to reach the proposal Walmart, and the majority of traffic will travel the freeway to Walmart. Vi Blake advised Walmart now has a hard time filling its employment needs, and will bring in employees from other stores to fill its employment needs rather than hiring locals only. Linda Larson stated Walmart is a good neighbor and does many things to help the community. She advised she would like to keep tax dollars in St. George. Walmart has gone the extra mile to work with the City. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised there is no contention whether Walmart is a philanthropic organization, and the focus of comments should be made on the zone change application only. Bill Whitlow, a resident of Bloomington, stated he felt the roundabout, as proposed, was too small to handle a truck and trailer 70' long. He stated more study needed to be done on the size of the roundabout. He urged the City Council to ask for a more comprehensive traffic study. Rick Nelson, a resident of Bloomington Hills, stated he was looking forward to the new Walmart. He stated this is not a perfect world, and the traffic studies were based on accumulated knowledge. As a business owner in Bloomington, he urged the City Council to decide in favor of Walmart. Brian McMullin advised he was in favor of Walmart because of the increased jobs it would bring, increased tax revenues, and positive impact on the Bloomington Courtyard Center. Ronnie Magleby advised he supported the Walmart project as it provides an opportunity for economical shopping for young families. He urged the City Council to support the project. Crit Killen expressed concern that two Walmarts were being located in close proximity and would jeopardize downtown businesses. He stated 50-60% of the traffic going to Walmart would use the back way rather than the freeway, and Bloomington should not be subjected to this amount of traffic 24 hours a day seven days a week. He expressed concern about resulting declining property values and negative impact on the Bloomington community. He advised that one superstore is sufficient to serve the area?s residents. He expressed disapproval of the proposed roundabouts and advised that most communities removed them because they did not work. He urged the City to deny Walmart?s request. Cindy Stevenson questioned whether Walmart was overdeveloping. She stated she had information that Walmart was building a store in Mesquite too, in addition to Cedar City and Washington. She questioned the need for two superstores in such close proximity. Nikki Stocks, a Bloomington resident, stated that although she liked Walmart, she feared increased traffic, speeding, and construction trucks. She suggested the superstore be built at the new interchange, and stated the area did not need two superstores. St. George City Council Minutes February 17, 2000 Page Fourteen Hooper North, a consulting engineer and land surveyor, expressed concerns about the proposed Walmart location in Bloomington, and to build the superstore on a culdesac would be wrong and would cause problems, such as those being experienced at the new Dixie Center. Dale Scott, a resident of Bloomington, stated he is concerned for the small children in the area, however, an easy solution would be to install speed bumps on Man O War and Sugar Leo which would solve the problem of speeding. He expressed support for Walmart and the property rights of the property owner. Sid Waldvogel stated he felt strongly the property owner (Mr. Magleby) has a right to sell his property for a commercial development as it is zoned commercial. Dick Dixon advised St. George is a Walmart-type community. Lance Pinnell, a Bloomington resident, advised that many older people will travel the back way to the new Walmart rather than use the freeway, and that tax dollars would be required to eventually improve Tonaquint Drive and Bloomington Drive because of this use. Wayne Lisner inquired why the traffic study was done for a five year time period only. Lloyd Paulson advised that many traffic circles built in the 20's in California do not exist today. He advised that any proposed roundabout should conform to ASSHTOE standards Crit Killen advised that increased traffic throughout the neighborhood of Bloomington will bring crime, especially at night. He advised that any taxes lost from loss of existing businesses will not be compensated by Walmart, as all money goes to their corporate headquarters. Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. Joe Geivett, Walmart project engineer, advised traffic engineers have done traffic studies on over 3000 projects for Walmart and have a good feel for traffic at Walmarts. The traffic study has been coordinated with UDOT and the City, and the traffic numbers are very consistent with other projects of the same size. Councilmember Gardner inquired how numbers were arrived at for use of the back way into Bloomington. Mr. Geivett advised numbers in the traffic study have been refined, and the traffic study has been taken out five years. No one knows what development will take place after five years, but as far as trip generation and distribution, the figures have been adjusted. The traffic study report models people going to Walmart, not taking credit for people who already go to Walmart or drive their own neighborhood roads to the freeway to the present store. The traffic study is conservative. Grant Schultz, traffic engineer from Sear Brown and retained by Walmart, advised that areas outside of the immediate study area were looked at with City staff. Man O War is a major collector road within the City?s present system and is meant to move traffic and does not need to be controlled. Bloomington Hills was generally looked at, as was Sugar Leo Road, and as far as capacity, is not a problem. Residents may be concerned with speed, but capacity will not be a problem. St. George City Council Minutes February 17, 2000 Page Fifteen Mr. Geivett advised the building dimensions are 320' deep by 550' wide. He advised that traffic circles are being installed around the country, including Seattle. Confirmation has been received from the Army Corp of Engineers that the proposed project is not within their jurisdiction as far as any environmental impacts on the Virgin River. Noise has been mitigated through landscaping and walls and orientation of the project. Councilmember Orton inquired if City staff were satisfied that safety concerns had been addressed with regard to traffic. He expressed concern about the single entrance to a project of that magnitude, and requested information on another Super Walmart served by a single road. Mr. Geivett explained that three lanes under the freeway is adequate to handle the traffic, and the purpose of the roundabout is to put capacity on the other side to use up unused capacity under the freeway. Councilmember Isom explained her main concern was safety and she felt many questions were left unanswered. She stated she did not feel she was in a position to make a decision this evening, and was still concerned about trucks negotiating the roundabout. Councilmember Whatcott stated he would like to know if a Walmart is proposed for the Mesquite area. He stated this issue is very expensive, financially and economically, and is taken very seriously by the City. He expressed concern that two superstores were being built in a small, non-metropolitan community, and he did not think the sales tax revenue would be doubled, but disbursed between the two stores. Ms. Davis said there were many examples of two to three superstores in a small area. Councilmember Whatcott advised that the City Council must consider the zoning requirements of the City, and cannot take into account the wishes of the Bloomington residents, for or against. The issue can only be decided on the merits, and there could be a potential blight on the community if both stores cannot make it and one has to close. Ms. Davis explained the proposal is a huge investment for Walmart and something they do not do lightly. Walmart is an extremely conservative company with regard to finances, and the supercenter is very popular and has worked well in markets across the country. Walmart is a growth company and is not in the business of closing stores, and there is opportunity for Walmart in Utah. Councilmember Whatcott inquired what kind of assurance could be given that if one of the supercenters is not making its margin on a weekly basis, that it would not be shut down. Ms. Davis replied that she could not make any promises, but the proposed supercenter is not something Walmart enters into lightly. Walmart has experience operating supercenters in close proximity to each other, and is in the business of growing, not closing stores. Councilmember Whatcott stated he did not like traffic lights, and appreciated Walmart?s willingness to ?step up to the table? with the roundabout. However, neither traffic lights nor roundabouts are needed if Walmart does not locate there. Mayor McArthur inquired if Walmart ever fronted costs for improvements such as those being proposed. He asked how the City could know that if the zone change was granted, the store would be built, and the zone change not used for something else. St. George City Council Minutes February 18, 2000 Page Sixteen Chris Calloway explained that the PD zone is a specific zoning designation for a specific use, and anyone coming back in the future for anything else would have to obtain City Council approval. He explained Walmart has every intention of building the store. He stated he handles a five state region, and although there are not a great many supercenters at this time, multiple communities are doing more than one supercenter such as Billings, Montana; Napa, Idaho; Caldwell, Idaho; and Pueblo, Colorado. Councilmember Gardner stated he was a strong property rights advocate, and also for the ?little man.? He supports a free market economy. He commended Walmart on a professional presentation, but stated he was still uncomfortable with an unwillingness to meet the projected traffic count at this time and negotiate beyond that. If Walmart is anxious to do business in the community, the only way that can happen is with a true level playing field with other businesses in the community, and it is the City Council?s obligation to not cut such a sweet deal for Walmart that it undercuts other businesses which have been in the community for a long time. He stated he was concerned about how much the general fund would need to supplement the improvements, and further meetings are necessary to refine the numbers. Councilmember Allen stated she felt more discussion was needed concerning funding, and it was not right for the citizens to bear the cost of improvements to promote Walmart. She stated she was also concerned about safety issues and the proposed roundabouts and heavy truck traffic. She inquired about hours for truck delivery and a slip lane. She stated this decision would have an enormous impact on the City, and she was not comfortable making a decision until her concerns were addressed. Lowry Snow stated Walmart has completed its zoning application, submitted a traffic study which no one has countered, and is willing and able to pay 100% of the impact pursuant to the traffic study. Upsizing is not unusual, and if the City decides they want a longer range plan than traffic lights, Walmart is willing to help fund that. Walmart wants to be a good neighbor and has tried to accommodate every issue. Time, however, is a concern. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised City Councilmembers should not have contact with anyone about this issue outside this forum until a decision is made. City Manager Gary Esplin advised staff has reviewed the engineering report on traffic, and can bring in another consultant, and a variety of opinions would likely be had. Walmart has offered to help fund the study with UDOT to look at the feasibility of roundabouts, and if they are determined to not be feasible, traffic lights will work. He advised that City staff feel the traffic consultant is competent. Councilmember Gardner stated he would like to know how extensive the traffic study and its recommendations were, and cost estimates. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that upsizing is done all over the City. Councilmember Orton stated it was important to understand that the City Council has not had the opportunity to discuss among themselves the issue. He requested a copy of the presentation by Friday a.m. for review. A work meeting was scheduled for February 29, 2000 at 5:00 p.m. to discuss the request. The issue will be scheduled for action at a regular City Council meeting on March 2, 2000. Lowry Snow advised Walmart would be prepared to discuss in detail the signal traffic study at the meeting on the 29th. St. George City Council Minutes February 17, 2000 Page Seventeen Mayor McArthur requested information on reimbursement agreements Walmart has participated in. Chris Calloway replied he did not have any specific details to give. City Manager Gary Esplin advised City Councilmembers that he would be available to answer any questions concerning Walmart throughout the week. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised the City Council sits as a quasi-judicial body, and it is not appropriate nor fair for them to hear evidence from Walmart or citizens outside of the public forum. Contact with them would be a violation of procedural due process. In deliberating this issue, the City Council can examine issues related to the health, safety and welfare of its citizens, land use criteria as opposed to economic issues, existing land use patterns, and whether the type of request violates the existing general plan, how the project would adversely affect neighbors and neighboring areas, if the project creates excessive traffic congestion, drainage problems, or reduces light and air issues, and what effect the project would have on property values in the area. What impact the project would have on the infrastructure of the City, including roads and traffic, and whether it is appropriate to change the zone for the type of traffic it will promote can also be considered. Mr. Wright explained Walmart is required to provide off-site improvements directly related to the project. A motion was made by Councilmember Orton to continue this item to the work meeting scheduled for February 29, 2000 at 5:00 p.m. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen, and all voted aye. City Attorney Jonathan Wright stated Walmart needed to designate a representative for Gary Esplin to contact. Joe Geivett was designated as Walmart?s representative, with Lowry Snow as alternate.

City Council Minutes 02/21/2013:
...hat anyone wishing to offer an invocation at a City Council meeting should contact the City Recorder. He then invited several Scouts and students in the audience to introduce themselves. CONSENT CALENDAR: Consider approval of the financial statement for January, 2013. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that the City is in good shape so far this fiscal year. Councilmember Bunker requested that the audit letter be put on the City’s website. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Bunker to approve the financial statement. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Hughes. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Nickle - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid for the Gap Wash Erosion Protection Repair Project from the Santa Clara River through the Tonaquint Center area. Purchasing Manager Connie Hood advised the low bid was submitted by JP Excavating in the amount of $243,450. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the budgeted amount is $500,000, to be paid out of the Flood Impact Fund. The project was bid so that the height of the wall along the wash could be added to in the future. The recommendation is to add additional protection based on unit prices approved through the bid, utilizing all budgeted funds. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to award the bid in the amount of $243,450, plus any additional amounts up to the budgeted amount for extra protection based on the unit price presented. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Nickle - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution supporting the implementation of the Transfer of Public Lands Act. Mayor McArthur advised that the mayors met and talked about this resolution. He received one call from Ms. Engelman who had another view on this subject, but he is in support of the state bill going to the federal government. St. George City Council Minutes February 21, 2013 Page Two Councilmember Pike commented that this bill has a huge impact on education for the State of Utah. Many states have 90-95% of lands that are private, but 70% of Utah’s land is federally controlled. This resolution is saying that the State wants local control of its land. Councilmember Hughes commented that it is a misconception that Utah is trying to build homes on every single acre. This is not true. Even if this resolution is successful, there will still be over 1/3 of the state controlled by the federal government. The State of Utah should have more control over its own lands. Mayor McArthur advised the resolution was put forth by the Washington County Commission. Councilmember Almquist commented that the federal government, in an attempt to appease Utah, gives it more money in lieu of taxes. But this falls short of allowing Utah to control its own destiny on its own lands. The American Revolution was fought so that someone living in a distant land could not control the American people, and this is what America was built on. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Almquist to approve the resolution. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bunker. Mayor McArthur then read the resolution in its entirety. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Nickle - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution adopting a MOU for management of Snow Canyon State Park. Mayor McArthur advised that mayors and other public officials in the County have been talking with State Parks to come up with this MOU. In 1998 there was supposed to be an MOU which gives cities input and a position on the governing board to talk about concerns, such as access. Approval of this MOU will not take any authority away from Snow Canyon State Park, but sets forth rules and regulations and how the board is set up. Councilmember Almquist commented he was in favor of implementation of a more reasonable environmental procedure and the ability of the City to voice its opinion and offer more input. Mayor McArthur commented that Snow Canyon State Park will, of course, remain in the State park system, but this MOU will give the City a chance to have input. The MOU in 1998 was never consummated. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to approve the resolution. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Hughes. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Nickle - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. OVERNIGHT CAMP-OUT: Consider approval of an overnight camp-out on City property at the Dixie Center. Boy Scouts of America, applicant. St. George City Council Minutes February 21, 2013 Page Three City Manager Gary Esplin explained the Scouts have used City property at the Dixie Center for a camp out the last few years. They are also requesting to close a road and waive any fees. The street to be closed is not a well-traveled street and is basically a connector street for the parking lot. Mayor McArthur commented that this activity has been ongoing for the past several years and the City benefits from the Scouting program. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that the company holding an option on this property has agreed to this event. Lori Morris, Scout Expo Committee, advised there will be 500-750 young men camping out. During the day there will be 700-800 Scouts at the Dixie Center. This event draws from the whole Southern Utah district, and it is the 100th anniversary of the LDS Church and Scouting. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to approve the overnight camp-out, closure of the street, and waiver of any fees. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Nickle - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. WAIVER OF SPECIAL EVENT FEE AND ROAD CLOSURES: Consider a request for waiver of the special event fee and for road closures in the vicinity of Dixie State University for the Colorpalooza 5K Fun Run. St. George Chamber of Commerce, applicant. Gregg McArthur, Director of the Chamber of Commerce, advised the Color Run will be held May 18. It is a 5K, similar to the Color Me Rad races. The Chamber is partnering with the City, IHC, the School District, and College and will equally spread the proceeds of this event through all these organizations. This location was chosen because of the abundance of parking in the area. The race will begin and end in Hansen Stadium, with a color party at the end of the race. They are planning on 5000 people. They would like to close half of 700 East and will be using Utah Barricade. The race will begin at 9:00 a.m., and they will be off the street by 11:00 a.m. They would also like to close half of 100 South and 700 East, half of 1000 East and half of 400 South. The color is made of cornstarch and is water soluble. They will try and keep the color off City streets, and will vacuum and sweep it up when they are done. It is a dry powder, and he stated he was confident they would be able to clean it up. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Bunker to approve the special event permit, the road closures, and waiver of any fees. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Pike. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Nickle - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. WAIVER OF FEES: Consider a request for waiver of the Confluence Park use fee and special event permit fee for the Dove Center Duck Dash. Katy Peterson, applicant. Lindsay Jeppson from Contact Point advised she is assisting the Dove Center for this event in memory of Michelle and Christopher Jones who were killed in 2011. There will be a 5K run/walk and rubber duck race. The website is up and they also have a Facebook page. She displayed the proposed course. She event is to raise awareness of domestic violence and raise some funds. She requested that the park use fee and special event permit fee be waived. An unidentified woman advised that Michelle Jones was employed at Contact Point. She and her 19 year old son were murdered by her husband. ...


City Council Minutes 01/21/2016:
... The Parks Department has been made aware of this matter and was provided contact information for the interested residents who were in attendance. Planning Commission recommends approval. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that there has been discussion about putting a culvert under 3000 East to provide access to the bouldering area. Staff is looking at a mountain bicycle skills park as part of the RAP Tax bonds that were issued. Since this is private property, if this property was to be used for this type of facility, the City would have to purchase it. An expert will soon be hired to determine the location of such a park. The City does not own any property in that area, this property is owned by SITLA. SITLA does not want people on their property. Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins is looking into what can be used on the two acre detention basin on 3000 East. Ryan Thomas with Development Solutions mentioned that there will be a four acre park at the intersection of 3000 East and Crimson Ridge Drive. There is an area more towards Banded Hills Drive that may be okay for a skills park. He explained even if they do not plan on developing an area, they still have to purchase it from SITLA. Some of the concerns at the Planning Commission meeting were that kids ride their bikes on this parcel. There are recreational opportunities in that area; he suggested that residents contact the Parks Division. City Manager Gary Esplin noted that staff can ask the consultant to evaluate the area. Mayor Pike opened the public hearing. Josh Taylor, resident, thanked the Council for the good ideas. He is not trying to stop the zone change; however, he wanted to note that there are a lot of places where kids ride their bikes in this area. There is a fairly large mountain bike park being discussed –a ton of space is not needed and it may not take much money to build one. The mountain bike community has issues that trail access is on the west side of the City; those living in Little Valley have to travel a bit. City Manager Gary Esplin explained there are assets in the Little Valley area. He does not know if all of the comments regarding possible locations for such a park need to be discussed tonight. Residents and staff can meet in the future to St. George City Council Minutes January 21, 2016 Page Seven discuss options. He asked that those in attendance who would like to be included to give their contact information to Parks Planner Mark Goble. Mayor Pike closed the...

The amendment to the existing Master Plan consists of the realignment of Hidden Valley Road, the removal of a school site, the addition of a church site, the addition of an RV site, the relocation of a club house, and the renumbering of several P.A. (Planned Areas). Case No. 2007-ZCA-017Planner Ray Snyder said this request is to revise the PD Text and graphics for Hidden Valley Master Plan. Ray spoke on the change to the PD in the year 2000. Ray pointed out the new locations for the amendment. The requests are as follows;1. To rezone approximately 79 acres from OS (Open Space) to PD (Planned Development) that is contiguous and southwest of the existing Hidden Valley Master Plan.2. To amend the existing PD zoning on approximately 585 acres of the Hidden Valley Master Plan to: a) Realign the roadway (Hidden Valley Road) b) Add church site c) Remove school site d) Add RV storage sitePLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 14, 2007Page Seven e) Relocate Club House f) Remove P.A.

But the district said they did not want a site there. Then last Thursday he heard from the school district they want an elementary school there. He will return to the school discussion once it is determined if they want a school there or not. Colin spoke on the changes and the reasons behind the changes.Tom Vincent said they have been very good neighbors. His concern is the trail system to the west side he has not seen any plans for that trail system being there anymore. There is no sidewalk on that side and their mailboxes are on that side. He would like to see the trail system being reconsidered.Colin Wright said he met with Milly Cockerill from the City’s Park Department and Ray Snyder and Collin would like to help out with that sidewalk issue but he would like to work together with the City and try to get this done. It would be hard for Ivory Homes to bear that whole expense so they would need some help from the City to accomplish that task.PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 14, 2007Page EightMOTION: Commissioner Bracken made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a zone change request from Ivory Homes, Mr. Colin Wright representative, to rezone approximately 79 acres from OS (Open Space) to PD (Planned Development) on land that is contiguous to and southwest of the existing Hidden Valley Master Plan and consider a request to amend the existing PD zoning on approximately 585 acres of the Hidden Valley Master Plan.

BDCSP (Building Design Conceptual Site Plan) and BUILDING HEIGHT approvalConsider a building design and conceptual site plan (BDCSP) to construct a new 150,000 sq. ft. seven level medical out-patient facility. The height proposed will exceed 35 feet. The project IHC DRMC Outpatient Pavillion. The owner is IHC Hospitals, Inc. The site is located behind the existing hospital on River Road and is accessible by East Medical Center Drive and/or Foremaster Drive. Case No. 2007-BDCSP-001Planner Ray Snyder said the applicants attended a Planning Staff Review meeting on April 17, 2007. They brought in a building design and conceptual site plan to construct approximately a 150,000 sq. ft. (Note: A provision is shown for a future expansion to this proposed building on the north side of 4 levels at 85,680 sq. ft. and an outside obstacle course is also proposed). IHC is proposing to meet the demands of outpatient volumes which are near hospital capacity. This request will allow expansion of physical therapy and rehabilitation programs. Significant needed medial office space will also be provided. Ray presented the list of services this facility would provide; 1) balance/neurological rehabilitation, 2) occupational hand therapy; 3) occupational/physical therapy pediatric program; 4) speech therapy; 5) sports medicine; 6) café; 7) life flight team sleeping quarters; 8) executive physicals area; 9) comprehensive spine program;PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 14, 2007Page Nine 10) MRI/Ultrasound/X-Ray imaging; 11) operating rooms; 12) PACU; 13) Endoscopy; 14) recovery; 15) physician office space.Ray said the building is proposed to have seven levels consisting of a parking level, lower level, first floor, second floor, third floor, fourth floor and mechanical level. The building will be located behind the existing hospital on River Road. The project would be accessible by East Medical Center Drive and/or Foremaster Drive. Ray stated the applicant presents the maximum roof peak which would be 80 ft. above the first floor level. The maximum roof peak would be 94.66 ft. above the lower level and 106.66 ft. above the parking level (lowest level). The existing hospital is 96 ft. Ray pointed out the parking requirements. The hospital section requires two (2) parking spaces for each bed. The office section requires one (1) parking space for each 250 gross square feet of office area. This project is a clinic and not a hospital (no beds).

Planning Commission Minutes 11/12/2013:
...other little road will fit in. Brett Burgess responded that we can get in contact with the developers there and have some open dialogue there. Chairman Ron Bracken concluded that the configuration is the issue at this point. Solve those issues then bring it back. Can you have it solved by the next meeting? Brett Burgess stated that they should be able to have it sorted out by the December meeting. Council Member Jimmie Hughes inserted that we have a good idea on what the Gentry property will be too so we can look at them together. Commissioner Ron Read asked Wes if they go with the cul-de-sac option will it be mandated to have connectivity to the Gentry piece. Wes Jenkins responded that yes, we want a road to the Gentry piece so it’s not an island. Commissioner Ron Read clarified, so in their discussion with the developer give us a road down. Wes Jenkins added that regardless if it goes through to Little Valley Road or if it’s a cul-de-sac we’ll request it the road down to the Gentry piece. *Commissioner Nathan Fisher and Commissioner Ron Read discussed the surrounding road sizes and connectivity with Wes Jenkins.* Chairman Ron Bracken MOTION: Commissioner Julie Hullinger made a motion to table. Commissioner Ron Read seconded the motion. AYES Commissioner Nathan Fisher Commissioner Ro Wilkinson Commissioner Ron Read Commissioner Julie Hullinger Chairman Ron Bracken Commissioner Ross Taylor Commissioner Kim Campbell NAYS None Motion passes. B. Consider approval of a preliminary plat for “Chaco West Phase 3” an eighteen (18) lot residential subdivision. The applicant is Double Dragon Investment, LLC and the representative is Mr. Brett Henke, KUMA Engineering. The property is zoned PD-R5 and is located along Tacheene Drive in the Entrada development on the border of St. George and Santa Clara which is located in Section 4 Township 42 South Range 16 West. Case No. 2012-PP-042 (Staff – Wes J.). Staff Comments: 1. Tacheene Drive is already a fully improved private roadway along the frontage of this project. 2. As with the Entrada development the proposed roadways will be private streets with sidewalk on one side. The southern lots will not be done until later due to the sewer. The fire marshal is okay with the longer road as long as there is a cul-de-sac. It is longer than we normally allow but we did not see any issue with it. I also talked to the water department. The Entrada development in this area does have poor water quality because they are at the end of the line. There is not a lot of landscaping out there so there isn’t a lot of turn-over with the water. There is a fire hydrant at the end of the cul-de-sac that the City will need to get in there and flush the line more often. Scott Taylor and I talked about another road. We can’t fix all of the water problems but it can take it from terrible to bad. As far as safety and traffic we’re okay with the road going a little longer. Also, if you notice the lot up on top there is a no disturb area. Entrada only allows a maximum of 80% disturb area. The final plat will have that outlined. They won’t mass grade, that will be done with each building permit. There were no questions from the Planning Commission. MOTION: Commissioner Kim Campbell made a motion to approve 6B. Commissioner Nathan Fisher seconded the motion. AYES Commissioner Nathan Fisher Commissioner Ro Wilkinson Commissioner Ron Read Commissioner Julie Hullinger Chairman Ron Bracken Commissioner Ross Taylor Commissioner Kim Campbell NAYS None Motion passes. 7. CONDITIONAL USE PERMITS (CUP) A. Consider a request from Sprint for a conditional use permit to upgrade infrastructure and replace an existing forty-six foot (46’) tall monopole tower (that does not meet structural standards) with a new forty-two foot (42’) tower. For approximately six months there will be two towers located on site until the old one is removed. The site is generally located at 700 N 1500 E. Case No. 2013-CUP-015. (Staff – Ray S.) Staff Comments: *Ray talked through the submitted graphics.* On page 4 under staff comments it is noted: The city maintains a case file for each company. This applicant requests permission to replace an existing monopole tower, but to leave the old one up until such time as a changeover from service can occur. The applicant’s goal is to increase coverage. The maximum tower height permitted by code is 100’ and this tower would only be 42’. A proposed draft motion based on previous cases would state: it is recommended to the City Council by the Planning Commission that approval be given to construct a replacement forty-two foot (42’) tall monopole tower and allow the existing tower to remain in place for a period of approximately six months until such time as the services can be successfully transferred over and the old tower removed. The following findings shall also apply: those findings would be those applicable to the conditional use such as noise, dust, odors, aesthetics, safety, traffic, height, etc. *Ray noted some of the conditions that were applicable to the conditional use permit.* Ray invited the applicant to the podium. Rock Schutjer representing Sprint: The important consideration is that we are reducing the height and that this is part of Sprint’s 4G upgrade across the nation. This is a little complicated because we found that the initial pole does not meet structural requirements. It is pretty well worn. This is why we want to replace the pole. The industry requires careful structural consideration and they overbuild and design for safety. Chairman Ron Bracken opened the item for questions from the Planning Commission. Commissioner Nathan Fisher asked if this pole is on top of the hillside. Rock Schutjer answered yes it is there are several sites up on that ridge. Commissioner Ron Read asked if there were any changes to the building. Rock Schutjer responded that there is no building up there; there is only a structural pad. Temporarily they will add an additional pad to put new cabinets in place. In the second phase the new tower will go up and the old tower will go down. Chairman Ron Bracken asked if the smaller tower they are putting up is more substantial than the current tower. Rock Schutjer responded that that is correct. Commissioner Kim Campbell addressed staff stating: the issue concerning structures on the edge of a ledge that we see throughout the city; is that city setback for residences or structures? Or does it apply just to the tower? Ray Snyder noted that we’ve seen it a lot with subdivisions for visual but I don’t recall having it. Commissioner Kim Campbell asked why there is a 100’ setback for residences from edges and not for a cell tower. What is the reason for the setback for residences and would it apply to a cell tower? Why can a cell tower be on the edge but not a residence? Ray Snyder responded that he is not aware of any reason. The tower is not on the edge. It is actually a few towers in. We are away from the edge near the freeway but are near the side edge. All of these piers are here for the towers. They are over engineering. Commissioner Kim Campbell added that: I just don’t get why the aesthetic applies to houses but not cell towers. Bob Nicholson conceded that that’s a good point and I’m sure there is a setback but I would need to research it. I think it would be 50’. Commissioner Kim Campbell asked if the setback for residential houses is purely aesthetic or for safety. Bob Nicholson responded that the setback is 90% aesthetic and 10% safety. MOTION: Commissioner Julie Hullinger made a motion to approve 7a. Commissioner Ro Wilkinson seconded the motion. AYES Commissioner Nathan Fisher Commissioner Ro Wilkinson Commissioner Ron Read Commissioner Julie Hullinger Chairman Ron Bracken Commissioner Ross Taylor Commissioner Kim Campbell NAYS None Motion passes. B. Consider a request for a Conditional Use Permit to establish a towing and impound yard in the St. George Industrial Park. The zoning is M-1 (Industrial). Located at 405 N Park Street. The applicant is Mr. Sam Andrus. Case No. 2013-CUP-017 (Staff – Ray S.). Ray read the text of a letter submitted by Mr. Sam Andrus: “One light duty tow truck would be parked on the premises. Inside the building would be the impound yard. There is ample room inside the garages to park multiple vehicles. Although a brick wall encloses the property, impounded vehicles would not be parked outside the building so as to be seen from the street. Please agree to the use of this property as a towing and impound yard as currently another towing company has their impound yard just south of this property at 375 N Park Street and Andrus Towing is moving from their current location just north of this property at 451 N 1300 E.” It is not unusual for the industrial park to have towing and impound yards. There is a wall that surrounds the property to block views from the street. Again a conditional use permit is required to establish a towing and impound yard. Auto salvage yards and things are required to come before council with a conditional use permit which is why we are here. I don’t have anything to emphasize. The findings are here for the noise, dust, and aesthetics as applicable. Ray invited the applicant’s representative to approach the podium. Mrs. Jackie Andrus approached to comment: “We do have a property just north of this property and there is a different company south of us. There would be impounded cars that would be parked inside the building. There is also the brick wall there so you can’t see anything from the street.” Commissioner Kim Campbell asked if there are any materials you can see above the fence. Jackie Andrus responded no because the fence is 6’ high. Mr. Dave Eickleberger (neighboring property owner) “The concern I have is that the wall that separates our properties is a shared wall. Having had the impound yard down there for 8-10 years. There’s never a person who has had their car impounded happy with that. They want to see their car. They come looking through my fence. The fence has been cut open. People do whatever they can to get to their car. Even though my side of the wall is 7’ tall any cars parked in my parking lot will use a step ladder to get into their property - especially if their gate is closed. My concern is having people climbing on my vehicles getting to their vehicles.” Commissioner Ro Wilkinson asked Mr. Eickleberger if this problem has occurred in the past. Dave Eickleberger responded no, the other property is a chain link fence so they can see through it. We have had our fence cut twice. We’ve had the sheriff up there three separate times. My concern is not the impound lot per say but the people using our cars to get over the fence. Chairman Ron Bracken inserted that it sounds like the vehicles are actually enclosed inside so people can’t get to them. Dave Eickleberger countered that people could break into the building. Commissioner Kim Campbell asked if Mr. Eickleberger has a gate on his property. Dave Eickleberger answered no, there is no reason to have a gate. There is a mechanic and parking. The mechanic in there is really good. When you have a ’57 Chevy in there and someone’s climbing on your bumper that’s an issue. How am I going to be assured that drug dealers won’t be climbing our wall? Jackie Andrus added: “The state requires we have certain operating hours from 8:00 am – 5:30 pm. Those hours will be posted on the brick wall. The gate will be closed after that. It is true we are on the police rotation so we’ll deal with DUI and drug arrest. In this location I have never had a problem with anyone trying to break in and get their stuff. We’ve done private property impounds as well and I’ve never had a problem with anyone. I believe that all impound yards should have a block wall. From my knowledge I don’t think that a chain link fence is up to code that’s why we’ve always parked our cars inside the building. I don’t think there will be a problem with people trying to get things from their cars because they are parked inside.” Sherrie Eickleberger countered: “A friend wanted to open an impound lot and she had given me the permit to apply with the state. Basically it states that the requirement is a chain-link fence or something to that statute with barbed wiring or razor wiring. It said right there that it had to be chain-link or similar.” Chairman Ron Bracken inserted that chain-link is most likely the minimum. The city does not like the razor wiring. Sherrie Eickleberger continued to state that there have been quite a few threats and we’ve had to call the police because people come in and threaten. Chairman Ron Bracken asked the Commissioners if they had any questions. Council Member Jimmie Hughes addressed the Eicklberger family stating that he understands their concerns but asked if they had a solution. Dave Eickleberger stated that he doesn’t know how to park cars there without having people use them to step over the wall. I don’t know what a solution would be. James Andrus (father of the applicant) approached the podium to state: “They have not had one problem in five years with having vehicles inside. People are told upfront that the vehicles are locked within a warehouse. Other impound yards have problems because they are accessible. I understand the City’s concern about where we put them but we are trying to make it work. The block wall keeps the area cleaned up.” Commissioner Ross Taylor pointed out that these folks are concerned about someone wanting to come at night. Mr. Andrus was asked if there is a sign that has the hours of operation as well as a phone number to contact. James Andrus responded that there is a sign with the hours of operation as well as a contact number. He added that the phones are answered “7/24”. ...

City Council Minutes 05/17/2007:
...ctims of domestic violence and crime, but Chief Stratton has asked them to contact victims of all crime and let them know the status of their case and any follow-up. Council Member Gardner commented he felt the figures reflected more of an effort by the Police Department to make sure victims? needs are taken care of. TAMARISK REMOVAL UPDATE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton reported in a meeting he attended with regard to the tamarisk removal taking place in the Bloomington area. There have been a lot of calls and e-mails from people upset about the removal of tamarisk from the river area. They will be replaced with willows. He reported that the experiment being conducted with tamarisk-eating beetles has also been successful. St. George City Council Meeting May 17, 2007 Page Two AWARD OF BID: Consider approval of a contract with Kim Campbell for restroom design for Willow Run Park. Purchasing Manager Connie Hood recommended approval of a contract with Kim Campbell in the amount of $22,212 for design of the restrooms at Willow Run Park. Council Member Allen suggested that there should be additional stalls in the women?s restroom. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to approve the contract with Mr. Campbell. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid for 138 kV steel poles. Purchasing Manger Connie Hood advised that only one bid met specifications and it was the second to the lowest bid. She recommended award of the bid to Meyer Steel Structures in the amount of $1,814,445. Council Member Whatcott inquired if the poles would be painted or rusted. Energy Services Director Phil Solomon replied that the poled would be the rusted poles. The 69kV line in Green Valley will be replaced with this 138 kV line, avoiding the hills so the poles are not skylined. Council Member Whatcott inquired if the poles were expensive to paint. Mr. Solomon replied that he did not know but he could check on it. Council Member Whatcott commented that his personal preference is the painted poles. Council Member Gardner commented that the rusted poles blend into the surroundings and require no maintenance. Mr. Solomon commented that the rusted poles would be mixed in with wood poles and they tend to look like wood poles. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to award the bid to Meter Steel Structures in the amount of $1,814,445. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid for the chip seal aggregate. Purchasing Manager Connie Hood advised that three bids were received. She recommended award of the bid to the low bidder, Quality Excavation, in the amount of $107,500. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to award the bid to Quality Excavation in the amount of $107,500. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. INCREASE BLANKET ORDER: Consider an increase to the blanket order with Western Rock for concrete, sand and gravel. St. George City Council Minutes May 17, 2007 Page Three Purchasing Manager Connie Hood explained that there was an overage to the amount previously awarded by the City Council to Western Rock. An estimate was done of open invoices and it was estimated to be $150,000 until the end of June. She requested approval of this amount. She advised that the reason this was missed is because estimates were requested from the Streets and Water Departments, but this did not take into account the little jobs performed by other departments. Last year?s budgeted amount was $75,000. Council Member Whatcott commented it appears the cost has doubled in one year. Ms. Hood replied that this was correct. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that last year all the small projects were budgeted in the department budgets, yet everyone is using the blanket order. If these small project costs were added to the $75,000 budgeted, the amount would be close. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the increase to the blanket order. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that better track will be kept of these costs as they all will now be under the blanket order. AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid for a turbo diesel rotary mower for the Parks Department. Purchasing Manager Connie Hood explained that three bids were received. She recommended award of the bid to the second lowest bidder, Turf Equipment, for the best machine, in the amount of $39,738. She advised that this machine met all specifications. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to award the bid to Turf Equipment in the amount of $38,738. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner.

CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT (2007-CUP-008): Consider approval of a conditional use permit to construct a detached garage with a height up to 21' to the roof peak at 3396 Sugar Leo Drive. Steve Vandeneikof, applicant. St. George City Council Minutes May 17, 2007 Page Four Planner Ray Snyder advised that the applicant is asking for a height of 21' to the roof peak. The Planning Commission recommends approval subject to the following conditions: (1) Maximum height shall not exceed 21' to the maximum roof peak. (2) The accessory building shall be single story only. (3) The exterior material and color will match the primary residence. (4) The roof tile will match the primary residence. (5) The accessory unit may not be used as a dwelling unit. (6) No fixtures shall be added that would constitute a second dwelling unit. Council Member Allen inquired if staff was working on an ordinance allowing granny flats. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson replied that staff has a draft ordinance. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that the applicant is not requesting use of the accessory building as a living unit. Council Member Allen commented that in a few week if the City Council does approve an ordinance that would legally allow this, the applicant may have already built something that he would want to change. The applicant advised that he was OK with the approval as recommended by the Planning Commission. Council Member Gardner inquired if any concern by the neighbors had been expressed. He was advised that there was none. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the conditional use permit. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. SITE PLAN/BUILDING ELEVATION (2007-SPBE-007): Planner Ray Snyder advised that the request for a site plan building elevation to construct a 15,408 sq. ft. three story office building at 250 West and 1200 South, Southpoint Blackridge Commercial Building, was tabled at the April 24 Planning to allow the applicant to submit photo simulations, which he has done. The Planning Commission also did not want a white building on the hillside, and the applicant now proposes a darker color for the building. Planning Commission and staff recommend approval subject to the following conditions: (1) Signage shall be approved under a separate permit. (2) Earth tone colors and materials shall be used as represented in the colored elevation submitted on May 17, 2007 to the City Council. The building shall have a flat roof design. A trim cap shall be used. The exterior of the building shall have two colors of earth tone synthetic stucco; one will be for the band and the other will be on the walls. There shall be cultured stone wainscot and accents. A non-reflective glass (bronze/brown) is permitted to compliment the building color. (3) The maximum building height shall not exceed 49 feet. (4) Street trees shall meet the City tree ordinance on 250 West Street. (5) Provide a photometric plan. (6) The applicant shall comply with the requirements of the City Traffic Engineer. Council Member Whatcott inquired if the 49' included the 3' parapet on top. He was advised that it did. Robert Killpack expressed concern with the height of the building and that it would obstruct the view and the building was not as aesthetic as it should be. He stated a 35' tall building would be fine, but not 49'. St. George City Council Minutes May 17, 2007 Page Five Rex Oliver, representing Royce Brown, advised that he was told as a potential buyer in an adjacent building that the City had height restrictions and those would be honored. He stated that a 49' tall building would not only impede the view but would affect the property value of his adjacent building unit. He requested that the City Council consider the overall effect. Council Member Whatcott advised Mr. Oliver and Mr. Killpack that their building is 47' tall, and received a variance as well. Duane Shallmer, representing adjacent owners, advised their concern is the height. He stated that due to its location, the building will be seen from the freeway and the two stories will stick up. He requested that a site visit be made or a public hearing scheduled. Bill Western, architect, advised that the building sits back far away from the brow of the hills and has complied with all Planning Commission requests. The building is a two story walk-out basement because of the slope. In relation to the building to the east, they are the same height. The building will be two story on one side because of the grade, and if it were only two stories total, it would be sitting down in a hole. They have also tried to meet the same earth tone colors as the rest of the development. Council Member Allen inquired if a 3D fly around have been done. Mr. Snyder replied that the Planning Commission requested only a photo simulation. Council Member Allen advised that the City Council has asked for a fly around on every project that has to do with the hillsides. Bill Western advised that the 49' high side will face Bluff Street. Lonnie Gubler, applicant, advised that they have tucked the building up as far as they could, and if it were tucked any more inside the lot, the roof top would be level with the road. He advised that this building is the same height as the building that Mr. Killpack and Mr. Oliver are in. Council Member Gardner commented that the original building built on this site was proposed to be 60' and was reduced by a story. The consensus of the Planning Commission and City Council was to move the building back because of its prominence so close to the edge. They were not willing to give a variance on the height because of the prominent location, and a compromise was reached on the height, but the building had to be moved back toward the back of the project. In this case it appears the footprint has been moved back as close to the road as possible. Lonnie Gubler advised that the building was moved as close to 250 West as possible, but because of a sewer line easement to the other building, it cannot be moved more into the corner. The other building?s only view loss would be to the southwest, and their view is still open to the east. Council Member Gardner commented that while he was not opposed to a site visit, he was comfortable that his concerns had been alleviated. Council Member Allen commented that it was hard to protect someone else?s views, and while she understood the position taken by Mr. Killpack and Mr. Oliver, the applicant has the right to ask for the same size of building granted to the previous builder. Council Member Whatcott inquired as to the difference in elevation directly to the north vs. the ground floor. Mr. Western replied that it was close to the same elevation and within 5'. Mr. Gubler commented that the adjacent building?s ground level is higher than theirs. St. George City Council Minutes May 17, 2007 Page Six Council Member Gardner commented that the City has required the same things of this building as it did of the previous building by insisting that it be moved back from the brow of the hills as far as possible and with sensitivity to colors. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the site plan/building elevation subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission and staff. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott. Council Member Allen inquired if the maximum building height all over was 49', and not just the parapet. Mr. Western replied that the building is 49' tall on the lower side and that it was not a three story building all the way around. The 49' height includes the parapet above the roofline. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. SITE PLAN/BUILDING ELEVATION: Planner Ray Snyder explained that this request is for buildings located on Tonaquint off Dixie Drive and was previously presented at the Mayr 3 City Council meeting. At that time it was tabled. The request is for two buildings, each two story, that match with what has been built in the area. There were concerns with traffic and engineering, and the Development Services Department has been working on these concerns. The Planning Commission recommended approval subject to the following conditions: (1) Signage shall be approved under a separate permit. (2) Earth tone colors and materials shall be used as represented in the colored elevation submitted April 10, 2007 and to the City Council on May 3, 2007 and May 17, 2007. (3) The maximum building height shall not exceed 41' as measured from the building midpoint on Dixie Drive. (4) Street trees on Dixie Drive shall meet the City?s tree ordinance. (5) Provide a photometric plan. (6) Subject to recommended conditions of City?s traffic engineer City Manager Gary Esplin advised there may be a potential issue with traffic that may have to come to the City Council if it cannot be worked out. He suggested that any approval be made subject to working out these details. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the site plan and building elevation subject to all recommendations, including working out traffic details. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. NON-CONFORMING USE (2007-NC-001): Planner John Willis explained the request to modify a non-conforming building by expanding the building footprint and maintaining the existing setbacks at 75 East 400 South. The home is located within an R-1-8 zone, with 8' and 10' side setbacks. The garage will also be enclosed. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the request. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider approval of a zone change from R-1-10 to PD Commercial on .82 acre located east of River Road and on the north side of 1450 South Street. Bruce Jensen, applicant. St. George City Council Minutes May 17, 2007 Page Seven Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained the applicants would like to locate a bank temporarily on the south side of 1450 South due west of the Summit Athletic Center. Road improvements are already in. The applicants would be required to improve 1490 East Circle which is the current entrance into the Summit Athletic Center. The applicant will widen the road and put in curb and gutter and sidewalk. They will use a modular building. The Planning Commission recommends approval for up to a two year period at which time the building would be removed. The applicants agreed to this condition. The Planning Commission recommended approval subject to the two year time limit for the modular building and the road improvements needed as per the City?s Traffic Engineer, and subject to the recommendations of Rosenberg Associates. City Attorney Shawn Guzman inquired who the applicant was for this zone change. He verified that the zone change included just this one parcel. Mr. Nicholson replied the applicant is the bank and the developer. City Attorney Shawn Guzman commented that changing the zone on this parcel will affect the zoning of the entire parcel. Mr. Nicholson advised that the entire parcel is currently zoned residential, but the General Plan shows the parcel as future commercial. Council Member Whatcott commented that there is still an issue with ownership of the property. It appears that approval of this request would set a precedent that the entire parcel would be commercial. While he did not think the City was opposed to this, ownership issues do need to be resolved. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that the whole site must be looked at, as this request will affect the zoning on the entire site. He advised that the City has not received the roadway dedication for 1450 South. He stated he would be hesitant about moving forward on any zone change until the roadway dedication is received from Mr. Sheffield. Mr.Nicholson inquired if the approval could be made subject to obtaining the roadway dedication. Mr. Guzman replied that it could. Mr. Nicholson advised that the improvements to 1450 South were in and the General Plan shows the site as future commercial. Council Member Whatcott commented that the road dedication is one of the land ownership issues. Mike Christensen advised that the facility is temporary, and in the future he plans to talk to the City Council about the entire parcel. He stated they are making an accommodation to the bank for operational issues. He is developing the property as a joint venture with Steve Sheffield. City Attorney Shawn Guzman commented that Steve Sheffield has indicated in previous conversations that he prefers a PD on the rest of the commercial site. Mr. Christensen replied that this was also his intent. Bruce Jensen, President and CEO of Town and Country Bank, advised that in 2005 a number of investors got together to create a new back. An interagency application was filed to obtain approval for the bank. Part of the approval had to do with the site chosen. Money was spent on an economic feasibility study for the site. The interagency application was approved and they are in the process of raising capital, with the expectation that the bank will be open to provide a return for investors. Mr. Jensen that when the entire parcel is rezoned PD they plan to be a part of it. Council Member Whatcott inquired if they would build the bank on this location or in another location within the PD Commercial. St. George City Council Minutes May 17, 2007 Page Eight Mr. Christensen replied that the bank will be permanently located in a different location. Mr. Jensen advised that the color of the triple wide modular building will be similar to that in the photo submitted, and there will be larger windows with tasteful shutters in the color of the logo. The actual building will be different than that shown in the photo. Council Member Allen inquired how long they planned on using the modular building. Mr. Jensen replied that if all goes well they hope to be out of it within 18 months. City Attorney Shawn Guzman clarified that the approval is for two years or until the bank opens, whichever is first. He recommended that any motion include the stipulation that the dedication plat be recorded before the applicant can begin on the project. Mayor Pro Tem Orton opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. Council Member Whatcott commented that he worried about setting a precedent when the City still has issues with the property owners. He stated he hoped the issues could be resolved. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the zone change subject to dedication of 1450 South and with the stipulations recommended by the Planning Commission. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Allen - aye Mayor Pro Tem Orton - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. Council Member Allen clarified that the road dedication had to happen before the applicants could move forward. City Attorney Shawn Guzman commented that a dedicated roadway was needed. PUBLIC HEARING/AMEND PD/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider approval of an amended PD Residential zone on 4.125 acres for the Beehive Home Phase 3 located at 2041 South Mesa Palms Drive. Dan Steurer, applicant. John Willis explained that the applicant would like to amend the PD by changing the number of buildings and adding a recreation area. The current PD was for 12 structures. The applicant would like to decrease that number and increase the size of each building. A portion of the development will be dedicated to the City. The Planning Commission recommends approval. Mayor Pro Tem Orton opened the public hearings. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the request. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Mayor Pro Tem Ortion - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

These units are independent living homes with two bedrooms and a kitchen and living room. Meals and cleaning are furnished if desired. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider approval of a zone change from R-1-10 to R-3 on 1.48 acres located at 1699 West 1020 North. Kelly Shannon, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the area consists of an acre and a half. Four homes have been surrounded over the years by multiple family zoning. The General Plan designates the area as medium density residential. There is R-3 zoning around it and Halfway Wash open space. The request is consistent with the General Plan. The Planning Commission recommends approval. City Manager Gary Esplin inquired if the adjacent property owners opposed the zone change. Mr. Nicholson replied that the four property owners are all applicants. Kelly Shannon, applicant, advised that he owned two of the four houses and he plans to build a six to eight unit apartment. All four owners are in agreement with the zone change. Mayor Pro Tem Orton opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the zone change. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott.

...ter and Power Capital Facilities Plans and Development Impact Fee Analysis contact with Alpha Engineering which would allow them to complete impact fees analysis for the Ledges area at the same time. Councilmember Gardner declared a conflict of interest although this contact had nothing to do with the annexation itself. Councilmember Orton made a motion to approve an addendum to the Water and Power Capital Facilities Plan and Development Impact Fee Analysis contract not to exceed $6,240 for impact fee analysis of the Ledges area. Councilmember Whatcott seconded and the motion passed unanimously with Councilmember Gardner in abstention. POWER LINE BURIAL: Gary Esplin, City Manager, asked that the Council consider a proposed agreement between the City and the West Springs Homeowners to bury power lines in order to eliminate the conflict caused by the large palm trees in the City right-of-way. The Homeowners Association proposes to pay the City $15,000 over the next three years toward the cost of burying power lines. Previously the City had agreed to raise the poles, but property owners countered with an offer to help bury the lines. The entire cost of the project will be $137,000 of which Falcon Cable will pay 50%, the homeowner?s association $15,000, and the City will participate by way of providing labor. The Council questioned having the lines buried in one area and overhead in another. Mr. Esplin told Councilmembers that other developments had been asked to participate, but were unwilling to do so at this time. Councilmember Whatcott made a motion to approve an agreement with the West Springs Homeowner?s Association in the amount of $15,000 paid over three years toward the cost of burying the power lines in front of their development.

...hat anyone wishing to offer an invocation at a City Council meeting should contact the City Recorder to be scheduled. PRESENTATION FROM SHELDON WITTWER REGARDING SIGN ISSUES: Sheldon Wittwer distributed an e-mail he had earlier sent the Mayor and City Council. He advised that on his way to work he counted 23 sign violations. He advised his business, Boulevard Furniture, was fined $2,600 for use of pennants. He suggested the City?s ordinance should prohibit people walking with signs. He suggested a form be created which lists dates businesses would like to use streamers, pennants, and temporary signs, up to 60 days per year. Mayor McArthur commented that the ordinance was put in place for worst case scenarios. Mr. Wittwer suggested the ordinance provide more flexibility and that banners not be required to be flush against a building. Mayor McArthur suggested that perhaps they could be allowed to not protrude past the building. Council Member Bunker commented the reason they had to be flush against the building was to prevent sagging and tearing due to wind. She commented there has never been a problem with the Boulevard?s signs. She suggested that banners be allowed within the footprint of the building. City Attorney Shawn Guzman commented that whatever decision is made, it should be legal and easy to enforce. Mayor McArthur commented the goal is have permanent signs rather than banners. St. George City Council Minutes June 26, 2008 Page Two Royden Wittwer expressed frustration at the $2600 fine for flying banners on their own property. Council Member Almquist expressed concern that the ACE court is assessing large fines and upsetting people. Mayor McArthur replied that notice is always given first, and some people choose to defy the law. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised the ACE court system is the same system as that set up for traffic tickets. The goal is compliance. The rules and ordinances of the City must be enforced. Sheldon Wittwer suggested that the ?holiday? period contained in the ordinance begin November 1. Mayor McArthur commented he felt there was room for change in the ordinance to make it better for businesses. Council Member Pike commented that this is a complicated issue and is one of the issues which propelled him to run for office. He stated he was frustrated with the ordinance as member of the Chamber of Commerce, and it seems the Council is now unclear on how the ordinance is to be interpreted and its intent. Royden Wittwer commented he felt there was unequal enforcement of the ordinance. Council Member Bunker commented it was difficult to come up with something that applies to all businesses. She inquired of Mr. Wittwer if he could build a structure in which to locate his temporary signs, rather than having a banner in front of the business in the landscaped area. Mr. Wittwer replied that they were looking at a sign but it will cost $50,000. He inquired if the Council would consider having a group of retailers involved in reviewing the wording of any ordinance changes. City Attorney Shawn Guzman commented that if there is uneven enforcement, it is because not everyone breaking the law can be caught. Jason Griffiths commented he felt there were several over-zealous code enforcement officers and that there was no discretion in code enforcement. Council Member Shakespeare inquired if there was a way to let the retailers do what they wanted until the law is changed. City Attorney Shawn Guzman replied that the code enforcement officers have previously been directed to not take any action unless a safety hazard exists. Council Member Almquist commented that prohibiting all banners except those flush on the building was too extreme, yet at the same time he did not want to be so free-wheeling in its ordinance that the City would look trashy. St. George City Council Minutes June 26, 2008 Page Three Council Member Allen commented the problem of signage for strip malls has not been solved. Mayor McArthur commented that the ordinance will not be satisfactory to everyone. Sheldon Wittwer suggested that a purpose statement might help code enforcement officers decide if a violation exists. DISCUSSION ON CITY-OWNED PROPERTY IN THE LITTLE VALLEY AREA AND THE BONNEVILLE BUILDERS PROJECT: City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the City owns property in the Little Valley area, two acres of which Bonneville Builders would like to add to their project to meet housing needs of the community. They are willing to work with the City on a partnership basis or purchase it outright from the City. John Fleming, Senior Project Manager for Bonneville Builders, reviewed the concept plan. He inquired if the City was willing to sell it its leftover property in the area. He explained that he met with the Workforce Housing Committee and the intent is to hit the median range or below, somewhere in the $220,000 range. The intent is to satisfy that need in the marketplace. He advised that the proposed project meets density guidelines. The site is located within a medium density overlay zone which allows seven units per acre. The project is 6.45 units per acre and lies between two schools. It will be marketed for younger families and school teachers, etc. City Manager Gary Esplin commented it made no sense for the City to develop the two acres itself and the property should go to the adjacent owner. The question is whether the City wants to be a partner in the affordable housing portion, or sell it with stipulations that some of the units be reserved for affordable housing, or sell it for full market value and use the funds to do its own affordable housing project down the road. He stated selling the property for full market value would be the cleanest and easiest option. Mr. Fleming advised the units will be between 1,450 and 1,800 sq. ft. The units will not have basements as there is a rock ledge running underneath the property. He stated he was fine with an outright purchase of the property. It was the consensus of the Mayor and Council to move forward with a sale of the property. City Manager Gary Esplin inquired of Mr. Fleming if water was purchased with the property. Mr. Fleming replied that it was not. DISCUSSION ON THE LANDSCAPE ORDINANCE: Community Development Director Bob Nicholson distributed the draft landscape ordinance and reviewed several issues: Section 10-25-3 applies to new and remodeling of existing commercial developments where a building permit would be required. He advised it does not apply to single family homes. He inquired if the Council felt comfortable with the language and if it should apply just to expansion or all remodeling. He recommended that the City Manager or his designee would have to approve any landscape change involving a non-conforming use. St. George City Council Minutes June 26, 2008 Page Four Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston clarified that this would apply to minor changes only. Mr. Nicholson advised that with regard to a change of use on an existing property, there is currently no requirement to install landscaping; only a building permit or remodel would trigger the requirement to install landscaping. He explained that there is currently no restriction in the ordinance when culinary water may be used for outdoor watering during May to September. The restriction is, however, contained in the City?s conservation plan and policy. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested it not be included in the ordinance. Conservation Coordinator Ren? Fleming commented this requirement does get press coverage each year when the plan is presented to the City Council. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested that a something be included in the ordinance encouraging best efforts in water conservation, but not make it mandatory. Section 10-25-4 currently requires landscaping of the front 25' in PD Commercial zones. The proposed standard would be a minimum average of 15' along front property lines with a minimum of 6'. Mr. Nicholson advised there is concern how this requirement impacts small parcels, but using an average will allow flexibility. Section 10-25-6 proposes that all new single family homes must install front yard landscaping within one year of the Certificate of Occupancy and have an automatic irrigation system, and existing homes must have front yard landscaping, but hose dragging is allowed. Council Member Allen inquired if a tree was required. Mr. Nicholson replied that a tree is not required. Council Member Bunker inquired how the ordinance would be enforced. Mr. Nicholson replied it would be enforced by Code Enforcement. City Manager Gary Esplin commented the issues needing addressing are how to enforce the ordinance, whether on a complaint basis, what happens if the ordinance is not enforced, how it is implemented, and if it is even going to be implemented. Council Member Shakespeare advised she had material from Louisiana State University on other landscape ordinances implemented by cities throughout the United States. Conservation Coordinator Ren? Fleming advised she also had similar material but from cities throughout the State of Utah. Mayor McArthur inquired if the ordinances addressed retroactive enforcement. Ms. Fleming replied that most of the cities do not retroactively enforce the ordinance, but only enforce them for new construction or remodeling. Mayor McArthur commented that a problem exists across the nation with homes sitting vacant with dying landscaping. St. George City Council Minutes June 26, 2008 Page Five Carol Sapp distributed a handout with SUHBA?s comments to the proposed landscape ordinance. She advised that a committee has been working approximately two years on the ordinance, with a lot of input from developers, engineers, landscape architects, and residents. She stated she was not comfortable that there was no quantifier for triggering the landscaping requirement for remodels. She stated it was important that the City not do anything to inhibit the desire for people to improve their facades and the appearance of their buildings, and this requirement could make it too difficult and expensive. She stated the requirement for 50% landscaping on existing properties could create the opposite effect desired. She suggested a percentage be used, or changing the footprint of the building, or square footage. She stated it has never been defined why 50% is the right number. Laura Taylor explained that while it is hard to quantify, it is believed Dixie Regional Medical Center has 50% landscaping. Craig Harvey explained a new concept of planting on roofs to help eliminate heat islands is desert communities. On new construction, this could be considered into the 50% landscape requirement, especially when the lot is small and there is not a lot of space for landscaping. Jay Sandberg explained the 50% landscaping requirement is only 50% of the minimum required landscaping. An unidentified gentleman commented that palm trees and shade trees are not part of the landscaping requirement. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the 50% landscape requirement has been on the books for ten to fifteen years, and is only 2.5% of the lot area. Carol Sapp stated she believed that removing the incentive for people to plant trees by not allowing them to fulfill some part of the required percentage would hurt the City. Something should be allowed for the right trees, but not, for instance, one mulberry tree that would take up a whole yard. She inquired if the landscaping ordinance would supercede any development agreement entered into. City Attorney Shawn Guzman replied that a development agreement will supercede the ordinance. Carol Sapp commented that occupying vs. owning property is problematic and the ordinance will create a hardship on those leasing. The same thing applies to residential. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that someone?s business license would not be taken away for violations of the ordinance. Ms. Sapp replied that this is what the business license ordinance says. Jason Griffith commented that who has responsibility for landscaping depends on the lease agreement. Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston advised that the City has the discretion to take away the business license or not. St. George City Council Minutes June 26, 2008 Page Six City Manager Gary Esplin commented the City needs the right to revoke the business license. Ms. Houston clarified that the City wants the ability to go after the landowner, as it cannot record against a lessee. City Manager Gary Esplin stated he did not see this as a big issue as the City Council and Mayor have the discretion to do lots of things. Carol Sapp suggested that the City Council should decide what will trigger the landscaping requirements for modifications to buildings. She stated she had significant issues with not doing anything that would hurt the housing market, such as requiring landscaping for ownership changes. Council Member Bunker suggested that one of the triggers for commercial should be if there is no landscaping at all. Ben, a designer with Bush and Gudgell, explained the committee selected areas it would bring up as concerns with regard to what is required when a remodel is done without being an undue hardship. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised the draft ordinance reads that if a business with no landscaping wants to remodel or expand, this would go to the City Manager for approval. Carol Sapp asked what is being done to address small parcels in the downtown that are narrow and deep as far as the 15' averaging requirement. Mr. Nicholson replied that unique situations that are non-conforming will go to the City Manager or his designee to see what can be done. It may not be brought up to conformance, but perhaps something could be done. Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston inquired about vacant lots. Mr. Nicholson replied that averaging would be the solution on vacant lots. Mayor McArthur commented that whatever is done has to be compatible with the surroundings. Carol Sapp commented that the alternate option for adoption is a better choice and does not impact existing residential. Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston advised the proposed ordinance creates a provision that requires residential to have landscaping, as it exists. Carol Sapp commented she disagreed with the provision regarding occupying vs. owning property. City Attorney Shawn Guzman commented that the rental ordinance would apply if the property is a rental. St. George City Council Minutes June 26, 2008 Page Seven Carol Sapp commented that the ordinance says an occupant will be charged with a Class C misdemeanor for violation of the ordinance, and this is unfair. Julie Breckenridge, Washington County Water Conservancy District, advised the WCWCD has a concern with requiring 50% landscaping. The WCWCD requires people to sign a conservation easement which prohibits them from landscaping more than 5000 sq. ft. City Manager Gary Esplin replied the 50% requirement is for the front yard only. Mayor McArthur commented the next step is to schedule the ordinance on an agenda. Council Member Bunker commented she still had concerns about the residential portion of the ordinance. She inquired if portions of the ordinance could be scheduled on the agenda, rather than the entire ordinance. City Manager Gary Esplin recommended that the commercial and multiple family portions of the ordinance be scheduled while still looking at the residential portion, funding, documentation, etc. Mayor McArthur called for a brief break. Upon conclusion of the break, the meeting continued. UPDATE AND DISCUSSION ON THE REPLACEMENT AIRPORT AND RELATED ISSUES: Public Works Director Larry Bulloch introduced Kristin Hartman, FAA Utah Engineer; Steve Domino, Jacobs PM Team; Mary Ortega-Itsell, Jacobs PM Team; Richard Slayden, Sala & Associates; Elisabeth Whitlock, Jacobs PM Team; and Tammy Schouten, Jacobs PM Team. Steve Domino presented a power point presentation covering Program Update, Land Acquisition, Proposed Airport Layout, Grading and Drainage, Landside and Parking, Airside and Lighting, Utilities and Roadways, Schedule, Program Budget, Minimum Standards, and Future Issues. Mayor McArthur and Kristin Hartman advised that the airport boundary can always be added to. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch advised that he would have proposals with regard to regulations for the Mayor and Council to consider within a few weeks. He advised that with regard to commercial service, what presently exists at the old airport will be moved to the new airport. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that there will be room in the new terminal for another airline. He advised that the City needs to be in negotiations now in order to meet minimum standards, and finalize design now in order to get bids. Steve Domino advised the tenants need to know now as well. Kristin Hartman advised the FAA supports the airport and is proud to have a new one in St. George which will increase safety. She advised she was available to help balance the budget and support all projects within the budget. She stated that decisions needed to be made in a timely manner and that there are a lot to make. She advised that currently the FAA is considering a straight-in approach, as well as a GPS approach. The VOR is outdated and probably will not be moved to the new airport. St. George City Council Minutes June 26, 2008 Page Eight Mr. Bulloch explained that access for general aviation will have to come in from the west or east. There is no funding for public perimeter roads. A site for fueling services will be refined in the layout plan. He advised he will be meeting with the FBOs who may want to provide fueling services. Glen Bundy inquired about a fuel farm. Mr. Bulloch advised it would be located south of the terminal. City Manager Gary Esplin advised there is no money in the budget for a fuel farm, and this will have to be undertaken by the private sector. Mr. Bulloch recommended paid parking at the new airport. City Manager Gary Esplin advised there is no money in the budget for a paid parking system, however, without revenues from parking one cannot be implemented. Mr. Bulloch advised that paid parking is the largest single revenue source an airport has. He advised that a parking fee of $3 per day could generate several hundred thousands of dollars in revenue each year. Glen Bundy inquired about a time frame for the FBOs. Mr. Bulloch replied he has already been meeting with the FBOs and will have another meeting with them after the standards are developed. He stated he will try and integrate the FBOs into the design process. City Manager Gary Esplin recommended approval of an emergency change order to install lighting on Brigham Road. There is money in the budget to provide street lights. It was the consensus of the Mayor and Council that Mr. Esplin proceed with the change order. ADJOURN TO EXECUTIVE SESSION: MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Almquist to adjourn to an executive session to discuss land purchases. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Pike. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Almquist - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Shakespeare - aye Council Member Pike - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. RECONVENE: MOTION: A motion to reconvene was made by Council Member Almquist. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. St. George City Council Minutes June 26, 2008 Page Nine MISCELLANEOUS DISCUSSIONS: Police Chief Marlon Stratton advised that the Moab Chief of Police requested the help of ten St. George police officers because 500 to 800 Banditos will visit Moab in August. The City will have to take care of salaries while they are gone, but Moab will take care of other expenses. Gloria Shakespeare inquired about the desert reserve ordinance. Support Services Manager Marc Mortensen advised that it is still in draft form and not yet ready for cities to review. The County wants each city to adopt it. Council Member Shakespeare inquired if the City had an evacuation plan. Police Chief Marlon Stratton advised that the City has an emergency operations plan which works in conjunction with the Red Cross and School District. Fire stations will be staffed in the event of an emergency. There is no plan, however, for a mass evacuation as there are too many variables. Council Member Shakespeare inquired who to contact to rent the Dixie Center for a high school dance. She was advised to contact the WCIA board. The meeting then adjourned. ____________...

...y impact their visibility. Mr. Bulloch replied that the City would contact every property owner where a transit shelter was proposed to be placed. Mayor McArthur suggested that this language be added to the ordinance. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. A motion was made by Council Member Isom to approve the ordinance subject to approval of the Planning Commission, City Council, and property owner. The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. City Attorney Guzman inquired if the property owner would have veto power over a shelter being placed on his or her property. Mayor McArthur clarified the Council?s intent is to make sure there has been a discussion with the property owner. City Attorney Shawn Guzman suggested that a policy be developed to ensure that adjacent property owners are contacted to receive their input. Council Members Isom and Allen agreed to change the motion to include creation of a policy to contact property owners for their input concerning placement of a transit shelter adjacent to their property. Council Member Gardner inquired if the City would have the ability to locate a transit shelter on property against the wishes of an adjacent property owner. City Attorney Shawn Guzman replied that the City Council could find that there are safety or other overriding concerns which would require placement of a shelter in a specific location, or not. Council Member Whatcott expressed concern that perhaps the City was going too far by overriding what a resident wants in his or her residential neighborhood. St. George City Council Minutes February 20, 2003 Page Six Council Member Gardner commented he was supportive of placing shelters in appropriate places, but a property owner?s rights should be superior to those of the City. Mr. Bulloch commented that the City does not want to adversely place any bus stop, as the purpose of the service is to serve the community. Council Member Gardner made a motion to approve the ordinance, based on the premise that the parties would work on a cooperative basis with each other, and with joint approval of the property owner and City. The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Isom - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. Council Member Whatcott suggested that any landscaping around transit shelters be self-contained. Mr. Bulloch replied that any existing landscaping will be restored to an equal or better condition if it is disturbed in order to locate a transit shelter. Council Member Allen was excused from the meeting. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a zone change request from C-2 to C-3 for 0.4 acre located at the northeast corner of Tabernacle Street and 800 East intersection. Bill Telford, applicant. Associate Planner Mark Bradley explained that the property in question is zoned C-2 which does not permit student housing. Council Member Whatcott inquired why R-3 or R-4 zoning was not being considered instead. Mr. Bradley explained that with commercial zoning, the City can waive the parking in the front setback area as long as there is an 8' landscaped area. Covered parking can also be waived if within a 1500' radius of the college. R-3 or R-4 zoning would require a 25' setback which would cut into the parking. Council Member Orton commented that if the zone were changed to C-3, any C-3 use could be built on the property, not just student housing. Council Member Whatcott suggested that student housing be allowed in a C-2 zone with a conditional use permit. Mr. Bradley replied that the applicant?s request is the most appropriate use of the location because of the need, and the project could not be zoned PD as it also requires an additional setback. An amendment to the ordinance would be required to allow a conditional use permit in an overlay area in a commercial zone Mayor McArthur advised that the proposed C-3 zone is adjacent to an existing C-3 zone. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that once a zone is changed, the owner may do whatever is allowed within that zone. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Bill Telford, applicant, advised he was purchasing the Campus Villas subject to being able to put more units on the property. He would like to add two tri-plexes to match the existing units. Byron McLeese stated that he had no objection to the project, but his concern was with parking. The City?s parking ordinance is adequate, but needs to be enforced. He advised that occupancy requirements are not being enforced. St. George City Council Minutes February 20, 2003 Page Seven Mr. Telford replied that his application for a zone change accommodates more parking than other options. The City?s new parking ordinance requires one parking space per student, and his project will totally comply. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott and seconded by Council Member Gardner to approve the zone change request by ordinance. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Isom - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a zone change request from A-20 and A-1 to R-1-10 for 61.79 acres located east of River Road and south of 2450 South. Jerry Riggs, applicant. Associate Planner Mark Bradley explained that the request is consistent with the General Plan. Low density residential zoning consists of 2.6 to 3.2 dwelling units per acre. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Russell Riggs, applicant, explained that this property was annexed into the City in 1982 with R-1-10 zoning. It was later rezoned to comply with future planning. The City now indicates that it would like to increase density gradually from River Road east. In 1986 some of the property owners in the area wanted to develop so they generated $186,000 to purchase water pipe and pay for labor. They did this with the understanding that sometime down the road this investment would pay off, and they are now looking for the pay-off by requesting R-1-10 zoning. R-1-10 zoning will help address some issues, including providing more flexibility to adapt to the irrigation line running east and west across the property, to intersections, and to the way the property lays out. The requested zoning complies with the General Plan. Mayor McArthur inquired of Mr. Riggs if the lay-out of his development would address some of the problems with property near Will Powell having to do with circulation and access. Mr. Riggs replied that while he knows he is not bound to do so, he would be more than happy to address these concerns in the lay-out of the development. Glen Bundy expressed concern with rezoning of a large parcel to R-1-10. Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission recommended approval, and notice of this hearing was sent to all property owners within 500 feet of the property in question. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Isom to approve the zone change by ordinance. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Gardner - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution authorizing the issuance and providing for the sale of $992,602.73 City of St. George, Utah, Special Assessment Bonds, Series 2003A (Special Improvement District No. 99-1) (the ?Series 2003A Bonds?), fixing the interest rates to be borne thereby, prescribing the form of Series 2003A bonds, maturity and denomination of said Series 2003A bonds; St. George City Council Minutes February 20, 2003 Page Eight reaffirming the creation of a guaranty fund as provided by statute; and related matters. Mayor McArthur advised that the correct amount of the bond issuance is approximately $989,000. A motion was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Isom to approve the resolution in the corrected amount. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Orton - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution abandoning a public utilities easement between Lots 29 and 30 of the Stone Cliff Subdivision, Phase 1. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch explained that the property owner wishes to build a residence on the two lots. The request has been reviewed and approved by staff and the JUC. A motion was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Orton to approve the resolution. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Isom - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. Mayor McArthur called for a short break. SET PUBLIC HEARING: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held February 11, 2003, recommended that a public hearing be scheduled for March 20, 2003 at 5:00 p.m. to consider a request for a zone change from C-2 to PD Commercial on 1.49 acres for storage units to be located east of River Road between Settlers RV and the East Black Ridge. Verden Hannig is the applicant. A motion was made by Council Member Isom and seconded by Council Member Orton to schedule the public hearing as recommended by the Planning Commission. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. FINAL PLATS: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held February 11, 2003, recommended approval of the final plat for The Knolls at Little Valley Phase 2, recognizing a site distance line and note will be added to the mylar and the 80' public right-of-way has not been officially named Horseman Park Road. Ed Burgess is the applicant. The Planning Commission also recommended approval of the final plat for Royal Creek. Dan Steurer is the applicant. A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to approve the final plats and authorize the Mayor to sign them. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. FINAL PLAT: Council Member Isom declared a possible conflict of interest as her office is handling the title work for Cotton Springs Phase I. Associate Planner Mark Bradley explained that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held February 11, 2003 recommended approval of the final plat for Cotton Springs Phase I. George Badger is the applicant. Council Member Isom advised that the original deed will be in her office tomorrow to clear up any ownership issues. St. George City Council Minutes February 20, 2003 Page Nine City Attorney Shawn Guzman explained that before final plat approval a title report is needed showing title to the property, and a copy of this has been provided to him. Gary Kuhlmann, representing the applicant, explained that at the City Council meeting where the preliminary plat was approved, the City Council indicated that before the final plat was approved they would like the applicant to contact Cotton Manor one more time in an effort to resolve the homeowners a...


City Council Minutes 03/23/2000:
...e the children about recycling. Mayor McArthur suggested that Ms. Deem contact the Washington County Solid Waste District about institution of a recycling program. Councilmember Gardner suggested that perhaps the savings from the lower solid waste collection fees could be diverted to the recycling program. Mayor McArthur commented the savings are insignificant compared to the cost of a recycling program An unidentified man from the audience inquired if there were any way the City could advertise the recycling program in its utility billings and determine a level of support for such a program. Mayor McArthur replied that could be done the next time there is a City-wide survey. City Manager Gary Esplin commented the parameters and cost of a recycling program would have to be determined. Councilmember Rod Orton commented most large grocery stores in the area are already recycling cardboard. Roene Wilkinson advised she has been in the recycling business for 15 years, and helped institute recycling programs in Salt Lake City and Sandy. She advised that a recycling program is very costly. She offered her help in instituting a program in St. George. Mayor McArthur encouraged Ms. Deem and volunteers to continue with their recycling efforts and to contact the Washington County Solid Waste District. INCREASE IN JUNIOR GOLF FEES: Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins distributed a memo concerning 2000 junior golf rates. He advised staff proposes to raise junior golf fees by $1 per round. This is not an attempt to augment golf revenues, as the increase will be used entirely within the JAG program and will be used to implement a summer marshal program to teach junior golfers proper on-course golf etiquette. He advised this education process would ultimately help protect the golf courses and improve the overall program. It was the consensus of the City Council to approve the increased fee with the key to the success of the program being the hiring of the right people for the marshaling positions. DONATION OF CHERRY TREES: Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins advised he received a letter from St. George International who is bringing to St. George another group of Japanese people. This group donated 100 cherry trees previously which were planted at the trail head at South Main. They would now like to donate more trees, and St. George International suggested the donor?s name be recognized on a plaque and placed somewhere along the trail. Mr. Perkins suggested the plaque designate the trailhead area as ?Ohashi Gardens.? It was the consensus of the City Council to approve this request. DISCUSSION RE TEMPLE TRAILHEAD: Mayor McArthur reported on a meeting with Craig and Kevin Flowers concerning a trail through their property adjacent to the Temple Trail. They are willing to allow the trail through their property, as well as donate to the City the hillside all the way to the ?D.? Negotiations are ongoing. FIELD TRIP SCHEDULED: City Manager Gary Esplin advised a field trip to view the dinosaur tracks on Sheldon Johnson?s property has been scheduled for 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 30. A trip to the site of the requested zone change for State School Trust lands in Bloomington was also scheduled immediately following the viewing of the dinosaur tracks. RED CLIFFS DESERT PRESERVE PUBLIC USE PLAN: Lori Rose presented a map of the recently amended Red Cliffs Desert Preserve Public Use Plan, and advised a public hearing will be held March 28, 2000 at 6:00 p.m. in the Washington County Commission Chambers. Written comment will also be accepted through April 14. She reviewed with the City Council the changes to the Plan. Mayor McArthur inquired if options were available for creating more trails through the Preserve in the future, and Ms. Rose responded that it is anticipated changes will be made. DISCUSSION RE PARK AREA ALONG VIRGIN RIVER ON EAST SIDE OF BLACK RIDGE: A discussion took place concerning the dinosaur tracks on Sheldon Johnson?s property. Mr. Layton Ott advised the tracks can be moved to the park or trail area if desired by the City. It was also suggested some of the tracks could be located in the proposed Wildlife Museum at the Dixie Center. Mr. Ott displayed a map of the area and advised he and Mr. Paul Jensen would like to proceed with zoning of the area. He stated he felt PD Commercial zoning would be appropriate, but requested the City?s input. A discussed ensued about the possibility of locating soccer fields on a portion of the property. Lynne Scott advised that 10 acres was needed for a soccer complex, but it would be too risky to locate the soccer fields that close to the river. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the property was very valuable as a parkway, and expressed concern about locating a soccer complex there as no structures should be located on the property. Layton Ott advised it was his desire to work with the City any way he could, but the first step in development of the property is zoning. He then advised he needed a commitment from the City as far as participation. Councilmember Isom arrived. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested that perhaps a land trade could be negotiated. Councilmember Gardner commented this site may work well as a soccer complex while the other proposed sites may not work. He suggested the City keep its options open. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested the frontage property along Riverside Drive could be master planned. It was the consensus of the City Council that they preferred PD Commercial zoning of the property. Mr. Ott commented he would consult with Sheldon Johnson and then contact City Manager Gary Esplin.

...zman said that a representative from Simmons Outdoor Media was supposed to contact the City about those options, but Mr. Guzman had not heard from them. Mr. Guzman explained that he called them this week and he was told that they didn?t want to talk about any type of resolution. Mr. Guzman said that the recommendation from Legal is to deny the permit based on the interpretation of the ordinance. Mr. Zach Hartman, a representative from Simmons Outdoor Media stated that the expense of raising the current sign would cost them too much money so they were not willing to consider that as an option. City Attorney Guzman said that the City had given Mr. Budge an option to postpone the discussion of the appeal of the denial, but Mr. Budge told him to go ahead with the meeting. Council Member Orton asked Brad Young, Code Enforcement Supervisor, if the Code Enforcement staff agreed with the recommendation from Legal. Mr. Young stated that they did. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to uphold the decision of the Sign Board to deny the request of the outdoor sign. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote as follows: St. George City Council Minutes June 29, 2006 Page Two Council Member Allen ? aye Council Member Bunker ? aye Council Member Whatcott ? aye Council Member Orton ? aye Council Member Gardner ? nay The motion carried. DISCUSSION WITH REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE ST. GEORGE MUSICAL THEATER: Mayor McArthur welcomed all those present who were representing the St. George Musical Theater. Mr. Ron Parker stated that he was representing the St. George Musical Theater?s interim board of directors and explained that they are currently working on legalizing the paperwork. He said that they are meeting weekly and they appreciate the city?s support in the past and acknowledged prior relationships. Mr. Parker said that he and the board of directors are looking positively at the future and are expecting improved communications between the board and theater staff. Mr. Parker stated that an audit for 2005 had recently been requested and he expressed confidence in the staff and the theater?s progress. Mr. Parker stated that the St. George Musical Theater cannot maintain their growth and stay in the current building. He said that other community entities have inquired about the theater?s future. Mr. Parker said that the theater would like to stay in the Woodward building but understands that would present a problem for the City and the future town square. He said that moving in the middle of a production year would be very difficult and they would like to stay in the City. Mr. Parker said that they are currently meeting weekly with an architect about a new building. He said that the end of July is their deadline to know their status with the City. He said that other offers the theater is currently entertaining insist that they move fast. Mr. Parker explained that they are currently pursuing a charter with Dixie State College. Council Member Orton asked Mr. Parker if he was asking for an extension until their new building is completed. Mr. Parker stated that would be the preference if at all possible. Council Member Gardner asked Mr. Parker if the plans for the new building are currently being drawn. Mr. Parker said that they were working on plans. He stated that the plans that are being worked on are also addressing the theater?s affiliation with the Classic Heritage Choir group and the symphony. He said that they are looking at a state of the art theater in the round that would be somewhat larger than the current facility. He said that they were also looking at a combination theater in the round and proscenium theater. Council Member Gardner asked Mr. Parker if they had funding for the new building. Mr. Parker stated that they are hopeful that they will be able to acquire the funds. He said that their first concern is to get the building designed to present to funding sources. He said that they are about two weeks away from a specific size. He said that the building would probably be approximately 30,000 to 40,000 square feet and that they would need 2 to 3 acres for a site to accommodate parking needs. Mayor McArthur asked Mr. Parker if there were other communities wanting the theater in their area. St. George City Council Minutes June 29, 2006 Page Three Mr. Parker stated that there were but that he could not discuss more specific details at the present time. Dr. Lee Caldwell, President of Dixie State College, stated that St. George was becoming a major cultural center for the region. He stated that this was an opportunity for the young people in the area to be involved in various cultural events. Dr. Caldwell said that the college has an operating agreement with the Heritage Choir and it will be issuing a formal charter to the St. George Musical Theater. He explained that this would allow the college to provide some operating services for the theater and that the college could go after grants and funding programs for the theater. Dr. Caldwell talked about the number of performances the theater presents each year and that it needs its own dedicated space. He stated that he thought it would take 4 or 5 years for them to raise the money and build a new facility. Council Member Gardner asked Dr. Caldwell if he was suggesting that the theater stay in the Woodward building for 4 to 5 years until another facility was built. Dr. Caldwell said yes. Council Member Gardner asked City Manager Gary Esplin if there was any flexibility in the scheduling of the demolition of the Woodward building. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that he didn?t have any information on what the financial impact would be to the City if the Woodward building demolition was delayed for 4 or 5 years. He said that the cost of the water walk and town square is 4 million dollars. He said the building would be an eye-sore during that time and that the whole character of the plaza would be affected. He said that he thought the theater wanted to stay in the building through the current production year. Council Member Orton said that the citizens want the downtown area now and that the theater should look for a different location. Dr. Caldwell stated that it would be nice to move forward together. He said that the college?s preference, as a chartering organization, would be to keep the theater in downtown St. George. Council Member Orton said that the City has agreed with that for 3 years but the St. George Musical Theater hasn?t done what they had committed to in that time frame. Dr. Caldwell said that now that the college is involved it will help them with funding and he feels that the relationship will strengthen the organization. Council Member Gardner asked Dr. Caldwell to explain what the charter means with regard to the St. George Musical Theater. Dr. Caldwell explained that under the charter, the operating authority comes from the college. St. George Musical Theater staff would become employees of the college. He stated the charter would be a legal authorization for St. George Musical Theater to become part of the college. Dr. Caldwell said that the charter has not yet been finalized. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that if they needed 2 -3 acres for a new facility there wasn?t that amount of land available in the town square area. Dr. Caldwell said that they are currently working on the college master plan and perhaps they could find space adjacent to that area. St. George City Council Minutes June 29, 2006 Page Four Mayor McArthur said they have put a lot of emphasis on the revitalization of downtown and they only have so long to get it done. He said they needed to look at the whole scope of things. The design of the plaza would change significantly by keeping the Woodward building. Dr. Caldwell asked if there was a way to keep the theater in the Woodward building through the current season. He said he wanted the city to decide if they want the St. George Musical Theater in the downtown area. He said that the college wanted to keep it close to downtown. Council Member Orton said that he is concerned about whether this is a business for the Kenworthys or a program that the college is going to support. Dr. Caldwell said that by being a charter program with the college, the college can tap into grants for the theater. He explained that currently the theater is being primarily supported by ticket revenues. He said that they could also look at memberships being added as a source of revenue. Dr. Caldwell said that perhaps the college could find space for the theater in the future. He said that the college wants to work with the City to make this work for the community. Council Member Gardner said that the charter would give the theater a firmer foundation and structure. He said that it would be a very positive thing. He said they need to look at the long-term impact of the plaza. He suggested that they pursue options through additional dialogue. He stated that he didn?t think the City could delay the heart of the project. Council Member Whatcott asked City Manager Esplin about the time line of the plaza. City Manager Gary Esplin said that the underground work has already been started. He said that he didn?t have an answer as to what the impact would be to the time line if the theater stayed in the building until July. There was discussion among various members of the audience about other location options for the theater. No agreement was reached regarding any of the options discussed. Mr. Parker asked that the City look at the situation for a site and keep the building for a time period to allow them to put up a new building. Council Member Gardner asked Mr. Parker if the Opera House could be used. Mr. Parker stated that the Opera House would not be suitable. There was discussion about the fact that the St. George Musical Theater knew for the past 3 years that the Woodward building would be demolished as part of the town square renovation. Several council members expressed their concern about the fact that the theater had not followed through on their commitment to show funding sources or to investigate the possibility of using the third floor of the Leisure Services building. Mr. Bruce Bennett, a representative of St. George Musical Theater, stated that the previous board of directors said the money would be raised. He stated that was the reason the theater went ahead with the program for the current season. City Attorney Shawn Guzman referred to a letter that had been sent to the City Council and asked Mr. Bennett if the theater was talking to other cities and groups about alternate locations. St. George City Council Minutes June 29, 2006 Page Five Mr. Bennett stated that they were. Council Member Bunker said that the City has a dream for the downtown area but as a representative of the citizens they need to continue to support the musical theater. She said that people love it and would probably enjoy it more than the open space that would replace the Woodward building. She said that she would like to see the theater stay in the building for at least a year and a half. Mayor McActhur said that the fact that the theater published a production schedule through July of next year seems like they are asking for forgiveness instead of permission to stay in the building. Council Member Whatcott stated that he disagreed with Council Member Bunker. He said that he thinks it is critical that the St. George Musical Theater and the college do the leg work. He said they need to take care of their responsibility. The success of the Town Square does not depend on the success of the St. George Musical Theater, but the success of the St. George Musical Theater may well depend on the success of the Town Square. He stated that time is money and delays cost the City more. He asked if the college or the St. George Musical Theater would be willing to repay the extra costs to the City. Ms. Jan Broberg, executive director for the theater, asked how soon the City needs to hear back from the St. George Musical Theater. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that he wanted to go on record that the City and the previous board had a good working relationship. He said that the time frames were in place and that it was not a new issue. Mark Peterson, Dean of Arts with Dixie State College, asked the Council if they had any suggestions for what the St. George Musical Theater could say about the City?s support in their fund raising efforts. Mayor McArthur stated that would have to be something the theater would need to address. He suggested that they contact the Council after following through with looking at alternate locations such as the third floor of the Leisure Services building. Mayor McArthur thanked all present representing the St. George Musical Theater for attending the meeting. CONSIDER A REQUEST FOR A HILLSIDE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT TO EXTEND A ROAD SIDE HILLSIDE CUT TO INCREASE THE SITE VISIBILITY ALONG INDIAN HILLS DRIVE LOCATED AT APPROXIMATELY 860 SOUTH INDIAN HILLS DRIVE, ACROSS THE ROAD FROM THE WEST BEND SUBDIVISION: City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the request had been reviewed by the Planning Commission and they recommended approval. He said that there are safety issues with the current situation and extending the cut would improve visibility along Indian Hills Drive. He stated that there were no issues from staff regarding the request. Council Member Bunker said that she disliked marring up the hills but that the safety factor is much more important. City Attorney Shawn Guzman stated that the proposal was a pretty substantial cut. He said that he went out to the site with Jay Sandberg, Assistant City Engineer, and the cut would be made to the absolute minimum to make it safe. Mr. Guzman said that the request meets requirements and the section needs to be enlarged for safety. St. George City Council Minutes June 29, 2006 Page Six MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the request. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. OTHER BUSINESS/CLARIFICATION OF MOTION: City Manager Gary Esplin asked for clarification of a motion made for a request for a zone change by Mr. Jeff Adams at the February 2, 2006 City Council meeting. He said that Mr. Adams wanted to come back to the Council with a request for another storage unit project. City Manager Esplin said that he thought that the motion which denied the zone change was in place for 1 year for storage units but waived for another zone change request, such as for housing. There was discussion among the Council members and they agreed that they also thought the motion which denied the zone change was in effect for a 1 year period for storage units only. OTHER BUSINESS/CHANGE ORDER: Barry Barnum, Director of Water Services, explained that the Council had approved a request for drilling services in the amount of $200,000 from Gardner Brothers Drilling. He stated that the bid did not include any costs for materials because the City had intended to purchase those separately. Mr. Barnum said that due to confusion on the part of the Water Services Department, Gardner Brothers Drilling was told that the City didn?t have the materials and authorized Gardner Brothers Drilling to supply the materials instead. He stated that the materials cost an additional $170,436.98. Mr. Barnum apologized to the Council and said that he wanted to request a change order for the $170,436.98, even though he recognized that he had not followed the appropriate process. Council Member Orton asked Mr. Barnum if the City could have purchased the materials cheaper than what Gardner Brothers Drilling would charge for them. Mr. Barnum said that he didn?t think that the City could because it would be using the same source for the materials. Council Member Allen asked why the request for materials hadn?t been included in the request for the drilling services. Mr. Barnum stated that they had intended to come back to the Council with the material request but then he learned that the materials had been supplied by Gardner Brothers Drilling. City Manager Gary Esplin said that the cost to the City was negligible but that it was a procedural issue that needed to be corrected. Council Member Gardner asked how the well was working. Mr. Barnum said that the water looks like it?s going to be pretty good quality. He said that the first test was good and that the well was pumping 600 gallons a minute. Mr. Barnum stated that the water could be used for irrigation. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the request for the change order for the materials in the amount of $170,436.98.

MISCELLANEOUS: City Manager Gary Esplin showed the Council a map of where the new high school is being built and explained that the City has an easement for a trail between the school property and a development originally planned by Paul Jensen. He said that the original plan for the development was for walk-out basements but when the lots didn?t sell, Mr. Jensen sold the property to Mr. Haslem who raised the level of the property and built single family homes. Mr. Esplin said that he has been contacted by Mr. Vern Christensen who says that the slope on the back part of the development is starting to erode away. Mr. Christensen has requested that the City address the problem. Mr. Esplin said that the school district is going to spend $800,000 to build a retaining wall along the back of the school property. The school district wants the City to raise the wall by two more blocks and asphalt the trail at an additional expense of $120,000. The Council directed City Manager Esplin to pursue the project. They suggested that he contact Mr. Jensen to see if he is willing to help with the additional $120...

Council Member Gardner asked if the split had to be $100,000 to Northern Power and $350,000 to Codale Electric or could it be an approximate. City Manager Gary Esplin said that they would have to come back to the Council if the amounts would go over either of the amounts to the vendors.

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,?

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 neighborhood. Council Member Allen stated that the land has sat there for quite some time and the hospital has not used it and that is not the direction they are moving in. She stated that she thinks this is mute to the conversation about the Justice Center. She stated that she doesn?t feel that the Children?s Justice Center is a detriment to the neighborhood. Ms. Clark said that they never called it a detriment to the neighborhood. She said that what they are worried about is the fact that Intermountain Health has the first rights to buy back the property if something were to happen. Council Member Whatcott asked if they are selling the property or is the Children?s Justice Center has a land lease. Ms. Sheffield said that the land has been donated to the Children?s Justice Center and is being deeded to them in the name of the Friends of the Washington County CJC, which is the 501c3 IRS designated fund raising organization. The building is being built with private donations. She said that the hospital has given them the land after working for more than two years with them. Mayor McArthur clarified that it says that if the CJC is not successful or if they move the property would be deeded back to the hospital. Ms. Sheffield stated that the hospital has the first right to buy the property from them. Council Member Orton asked if the Conditional Use Permit were not approved would they look for another piece of property. Ms. Sheffield said that they would but she didn?t know how they would do it. She stated that they have outgrown the current facility and there have been many people involved in trying to help them move forward to help protect the kids in this community. She said that they have architects, Southern Utah Homebuilders, and a contractor all on board with only $249,000 left to raise in order to build the facility. They have a grant pending for the remaining $50,000. She asked if the Chief of Police could talk about statistics as far as perpetrators. Council Member Whattcott said that he agreed that this was a business use in a residential area. He said that he recognizes the need for children to go into an environment that is a comfortable setting and not walk into a commercial office building to do interviews. He asked Ms. Sheffield if this was their way of protecting the children or if it was an opportunity to use a piece of property that has been donated to them. St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Eleven Ms. Sheffield stated that it was their opportunity to protect the children and to continue to do exactly what they are doing now in a facility that will better meet the needs of a growing community. Council Member Whatcott asked if an office building was built that was nice and didn?t look like a commercial, sterile environment would provide the services just as well as this home. Ms. Sheffield said that she knows of one Children?s Justice Center that is in more of a commercial looking building and comments from parents is that it brings up apprehension on the part of the child when they go there because it looks more like they are walking into a Police Station or a doctor?s office. All of the other facilities are in home settings. Mayor McArthur asked Ms. Sheffield if the interior of the building looked like a home. Ms. Sheffield stated that it did with the exception of the offices that will be located in the back. Council Member Whatcott asked if the three Children?s Justice Center staff members are among those doing the interviewing. Ms. Sheffield explained that the staff at the Children?s Justice Center do not do any interviewing. She said that the interviewing is done by law enforcement and Child Protective Service workers who are specifically trained in child interviewing techniques. Council Member Whatcott asked if they would be successful if they were going into an office building versus a residential looking facility to interview the children who have been abused. Ms. Sheffield stated that she did not believe so. Mayor McArthur asked Police Chief Stratton to come up and address some of the issues that had been raised. Police Chief Marlon Stratton stated that he felt strongly the children need to be in a residential setting. He said that it is more effective for the police. He stated that they used to bring the children to the Police Department but the objective with the Children?s Justice Center is to bring them into a more comfortable environment. Mayor McArthur asked Chief Stratton to address the issues of the sexual predators and registered sex offenders. The Mayor asked him to discuss what the police are doing in the community about these things. Chief Stratton stated that in St. George, the police are identifying the registered sex offenders within the City. He said that officers are assigned to specific areas of the City and the Community Action Teams are going to the homes to confirm that they are living where they say they are. He said that they are required by law to register. If they are not living there, the Police Department will file criminal charges against the individual and will issue a warrant. Mayor McArthur asked if the Police were finding many registered sex offenders that weren?t living where they were supposed to. Chief Stratton said that there aren?t a lot but there are some. He said that when this happens the Police pursue criminal complaints through the County Attorney?s office for those who have left or moved without updating the registry. Council Member Bunker asked Chief Stratton about the concerns about perpetrators being around the facility. She asked what kinds of problems there are currently and what the Chief of Police would perceive would happen with the new facility. Chief Stratton stated that in his opinion he believes that perpetrators would stay as far away from the facility as possible due to the presence of the Police Department. He said that he felt the new facility was a beautiful addition to the neighborhood. Council Member Gardner asked the Chief to explain how the police are involved with the Children?s Justice Center. Chief Stratton stated that the police work through Child Protective Services to transport the children to the Center. He said that the police officers are trained to conduct interviews with the children. Chief Stratton said that most of the children they bring to the Children?s Justice Center are small children who have been abused either physically or sexually. Mayor McArthur asked County Attorney Brock Belnap to address the Council. County Attorney Brock Belnap said that he would like to add his support for the Children?s Justice Center. He said that it provides an incredible service to young children who are in a traumatized and victimized state by making available in one place at one time experts who are trained in interviewing and in social work to St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Twelve appropriately interview them and find out the truth. It helps minimize the trauma that would otherwise face them if they were preceding under a traditional system where they would be interviewed by the Police, then by DCFS, then by prosecutors, and then re-interviewed. He stated that all through that process there is the risk of suggestion and additional traumatization to the child. He explained that by taking the children to a residential, non-threatening system, having people who are trained in the methods of talking to children and not leading them or suggesting things to them, he is able to get at the truth which helps prosecutors when the cases are taken to court. He said it all centers around having a facility that is in an appropriate residential, non-threatening place to start the process. Mayor McArthur said that he understands that the neighborhood is not against the Children?s Justice Center, it?s the value of the neighborhood as a residential area. The Mayor talked about how the neighborhood has changed since the time that he lived close to it and recognizes that the hospital has encroached on the area. He stated that he liked that the purposed building looked like a home. Mayor McArthur said that he had spoken to one of the executives from IHC about giving something back to the neighborhood. The Mayor stated that the Council is very concerned about neighborhoods and understands that this is a touchy issue. Mr. Bill Freeman stated that he lives at 1035 Coyote. He said that he knows that the people who live in the area are against the proposed building even though they?re for the children being taken care of. He said that he believes the new facility will be a plus for the neighborhood. He stated that in the 84770 area there are 75 registered sex offenders. He said that children who have been abused need a place to go where they can feel comfortable because their life has been destroyed. He said that if the Children?s Justice Center can turn one child around then he feels the neighbors need to be behind it. Ms. Clark stated that she appreciates the Mayor?s comments and that she has spent her life time working and teaching children. She said that if the large building is approved she is concerned about what happens to all the rest of the land. She asked what could be done to assure that the rest of the land would be used for single-family homes. Council Member Allen said that she would contact Intermountain Health to arrange a meeting with the neighbors. Council Member Gardner stated that his concern about the proposed building is that if the way it is placed doesn?t take into consideration the rest of the property they might not be able to use it the way they are intending to. He said that he would like to see the issue tabled for a week or two in order for all of the interested groups to get together an analyze future alternatives for the property. Council Member Orton stated that he thinks they have addressed that by placing the home near the street and putting a play yard and parking in the back. Council Member Gardner said that he didn?t know if the original plan would work without some analysis if a cul de sac were proposed in the future. Mayor McArthur stated that he felt there was time for that type of meeting while the Children?s Justice Center continued to raise funds. Council Member Bunker said that some of the suggestions the neighbors have made should be critically analyzed so everyone could feel more secure about it. She said that she is still concerned about the size of the proposed building. Council Member Allen stated that she felt that the actual size of houses can be deceiving just by the way they look from the outside. Council Member Bunker stated that she perceives a problem with the vacant piece of property between the Jubilee Home and the proposed facility. Mayor McArthur stated that Intermountain Health has already donated the property to the Children?s Justice Center so they don?t own it any more. Council Member Gardner said that Intermountain Health does own the rest of the property that is in question and he stated that he would like to see if they would be willing to change the boundary to make something work. County Attorney Brock Belnap stated that he had the opportunity to be involved in the negotiations to acquire the property and it has been donated in its entirety. He stated that talking to IHC about subdividing the property or putting a cul de sac in place would be a mute exercise because it belongs to the Friends Board of the Children?s Justice Center. He said that the Conditional Use Permit request should be separated from any issues that the neighbors have with IHC. He said that they are not in a position to go back to IHC and request a different piece of land to be donated. Council Member Gardner asked County Attorney Belnap if IHC had a desire to improve their relationship with the neighborhood. St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Thirteen County Attorney Belnap stated that he would encourage the community to have their dialogue with IHC. He said that any change in the location would set the Children?s Justice Center?s plans back dramatically. He requested that the Council act on the Conditional Use Permit request and not table the request. Mr. Jason Timberlain stated that he lives at 466 South 500 East. He stated that his property backs up to the proposed parking lot. He said that he is not against the proposed building but has a concern about the proposed parking lot and play area adjoining his property. Mr. Timberlain stated that he would like to have a block wall around the back of the property which would include the parking lot and the play area. Mr. Dick Mathis stated that he is not a close neighbor but he feels the proposed building is too imposing to be built at the suggested location. He said that if it were next to the Jublilee House it would be a better fit. Council Member Allen said that this was in the process before the Foundation House burned down which is why it looks like it is in the middle of the property. A citizen came forward and stated that she felt putting the decision off one month would not set the Children?s Justice Center back that far. She repeated that the neighbors are not against the Justice Center but would like one month to have time to dialogue with the hospital. Mr. Mike Empey stated that he has been the Chair of the Advisory Board for the Justice Center since 1996. He said that they want to be a good neighbor but stated that it is important that they be in a residential neighborhood. He said that one of the primary missions of the Justice Center is to have a safe, home-like setting and they feel that this plan accomplishes that. Mr. Empey said that he was involved in some of the early discussions with IHC regarding what parcel of property they would donate. He said that they wanted to donate the parcel that was on the edge of the large area they owned so they would have more options to do other things including possible residential. He said that he would encourage the dialogue with Intermountain Health but said that he strongly believes the request for the Conditional Use Permit is a separate issue. Council Member Whatcott stated that he agrees that the neighbors have valid concerns. He stated that if they were dealing with a business situation, what they presented would be exactly what the Council would need to hear. He said, however, he can?t overlook the fact that with the proposed building the children are in a comfortable environment where they can discuss their problems rather than a sterile setting which would be a disservice to them. Council Member Whatcott said that he didn?t believe that the pictures the neighbors showed of the cemetery, college, churches, parks, and temple are derogatory influences on the neighborhood. He said that he felt those types of additions benefitted the neighborhood. He stated that he agrees that a block wall should be built in order to provide a safe and secure environment for the children. Council Member Whatcott said that the decision should be delayed. Council Member Gardner asked for clarification on the layout of the property on the plat map. He said that he would like time for the interested parties to be able to have a dialogue about the layout and other possible uses. He asked Ms. Sheffield what issues would be caused by having the decision delayed a short time. Ms. Sheffield stated that the biggest concern was the fund raising. She stated that they are receiving checks almost every day and that a delay of even two weeks could make a big difference when it comes to keeping up the momentum. She said that land was donated to them by IHC. She stated that the problems between the neighbors and Intermountain Health is a separate issue and not about what the Children?s Justice Center does. She stated that they have looked at how the building is situated on the land. She said the driveway was placed on the west side of the building because of an agreement with Intermountain Health which gives them access to the remaining property. Mayor McArthur said that he doesn?t think delaying the decision would have a negative impact on the fund raising. Council Member Gardner said that he appreciates Ms. Sheffield?s passion and commitment to this cause. He said that he doesn?t want to lose track of the mission the City Council has been on to do all they can to revitalize and reinvigorate and to protect neighborhoods. He stated that delaying the decision for a two week period of time would allow the Council to come back and responsibly report to the neighborhood that the City Council has discussed options and identified the most beneficial outcome of the discussion for the remaining piece of property. Council Member Orton stated that the agrees with the County Attorney that this is a separate issue. He said that he feels the land donation was a very generous contribution from IHC. He stated that the Council has done everything in the last two or three years to try to protect this neighborhood along with the rest of the downtown area. St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Fourteen County Attorney Belnap said that if the hope from a delay is that they would be able to negotiate some change to the parcel, that simply is not going to happen. He said that they have been negotiating with IHC for eight months and finally got the contract signed in early December. He said that its taken until now to get the title reports cleared and ready. He stated that delaying action on the Children?s Justice Center parcel?s Conditional Use Permit will not change things. Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. Council Member Bunker asked Mr. Belnap about the imposing structure that is being proposed. She stated that the neighbors are concerned about the fact that it doesn?t fit into the neighborhood. She asked if a two week delay would make it possible to re-evaluate the building itself. County Attorney Belnap said that the building has been carefully designed by architects and experts around the State to accommodate programming over a significant period of time. He said that the footprint is appropriate for the area and the neighborhood. He said if they were to scale down it wouldn?t take into account the anticipated growth for the foreseeable future. Council Member Whatcott asked Mr. Belnap why they didn?t bring the request for a Conditional Use Permit to the Council before they spent so much time negotiating with IHC. He said that he feels that the Council is being backed into a corner to make an immediate decision. County Attorney Belnap stated that they thought they needed to own the property at the time they came to request the Conditional Use Permit. He said that they went to the Planning Commission and now they are making the request to the City Council. He stated that if the Council wants a delay because they think it may result in negotiating a new deal with Intermountain Health, it isn?t going to happen. He asked that the Council please consider this request on its own merits. Council Member Whatcott said that the Council has a responsibility to deal with the inner portion of blocks. He said that they are looking at ways to get single-family residences back into the area. He said that the current situation is a prime example of putting a house out front and making it difficult to access the back parcel. County Attorney Belnap said that the proposed building has the driveway on the west side to provide access for future development. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to approve the Conditional Use Permit for the Children?s Justice Center with the following conditions: (1) removal of the Business License requirement, (2) for uses as permitted by State statues governing Children?s Justice Centers, (3) a block wall to be built behind the property, and (4) landscaping to meet the standards of the neighborhood. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - nay Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Bunker - nay Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Gardner - nay The motion failed. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to table the request for two weeks in order to register the concerns of the neighborhood with those that own the remaining property to encourage them to be a willing partner in making that an appropriate addition to the neighborhood. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott. Council Member Allen stated that she had already made arrangements for a neighborhood discussion with Intermountain Health. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that the Council could grant the approval of the Conditional Use Permit to be in effect 30 days from now. He said that would give them the time to have a discussion with Intermountain Health. Council Member Gardner withdrew his motion. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the Conditional Use Permit for the Children?s Justice Center effective 30 days from today?s date with the following conditions: (1) removal of the Business License requirement, (2) for uses as permitted by State statues governing Children?s Justice Centers, (3) a block wall to be built behind the property, (4) landscaping to meet the standards of the neighborhood, and (5) the property reverts back to residential if the Children?s Justice Center vacates the premises. St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Fifteen SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner. Council Member Allen asked for clarification regarding the motion. Council Member Whatcott said that the motion delays implementation of the Conditional Use Permit for 30 days in order for the City to go to Intermountain Health and talk to them about the development of their property next to the donated parcel. He said that this would also give staff time to look at the easement and determine whether it meets City Code. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Allen - nay Council Member Gardner - aye The motion passed. Mayor McArthur called for a ten minute break. Mayor McArthur reconvened the meeting. PUBLIC HEARING/AMENDED PLAT: Public hearing to consider approval of the amended final plats for Lakota Phases 1 and 2, located on the east side of the Snow Canyon Parkway and Dixie Drive intersection, to change from individual lots to individual pads with common and limited common areas. Ence Homes, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that this is a change to the recorded plats for phases 1 & 2 to change from lots to building pads with common area between the pads. He said that where lot lines exist, there is a minimum 8' setback to the side lot line. For building pads with common area between the pads the code requires a minimum 10' separation between the homes. Mr. Nicholson said the applicant wants the 10' separation between the homes rather than two 8' side yards. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to approve the amended 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 The Joshuas Phase 3 located at approximately 2000 South Tonaquint Drive. Salisbury Homes, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that Joshuas Phase 3 has a private street network connecting to the existing private streets established in Phase 1. There is a proposed entrance off Tonaquint Drive which lines up with Mesa Palms Drive to the west. He said the homes are detached units similar to the existing homes in phase 1. Mr. Nicholson said the Planning Commission recommended approval subject to: (1) traffic engineer?s requirements for site distance and decel lane on Tonaquint Drive, (2) meet all PD zone standards, and (3) the storm-water detention meet City Engineer?s requirements. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to approve the preliminary plat. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner. 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 Tuscan Hills Phase 4 located at Plantations Drive off of Dixie Drive. Guy Haskell, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the phase 4 plat with 58 units is ready for consideration. Tuscan Hills is in a PD zone with both public and private streets. This phase has private streets 29' wide with a 4' sidewalk on one side. He stated the Planning Commission recommends approval subject to compliance with the Hillside Development Permit, meeting traffic site distance St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Sixteen requirements at the intersection with Plantations Drive and compliance with PD building separations and setbacks. Council Member Gardner asked if there has been master planning for the trail system in this area. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson said that this was a PD project that has some little private park areas within the development. Mr. Nicholson said that he doesn?t think there is a City trail planned through the development. Council Member Gardner asked if it is consistent with the PD plan. Mr. Nicholson stated that it was. Council Member Whatcott asked for clarification about the number of phases being done in the development. He asked if they have done phases 1 and 2.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that this is a request for approval of a special event permit to hold a concert in the Sunbowl on May 20, 2006. He said that the applicant, Marty Lane, will have his own security and will be meeting with the Police Department to fill out the appropriate licenses and pay the appropriate fees. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the request. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. Council Member Whatcott was excused from the Council meeting. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit to construct an office building to a height of 35'-38' at 162 North 400 East. Dan Gifford, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the applicant wants to construct a three-story office building adjacent to the existing building at 162 North 400 East. He said that the Planning Commission voted 5-0 to deny the height variance. He stated that adjacent property owners opposed the request and the issue of parking was a critical item. Mr. Nicholson said that since the Planning St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Seventeen Commission meeting, the applicant has proposed lowering the building height from 44' to 35' with about 12 HVAC roof-top units extending 3' above the parapet wall. He stated that staff has recommended to the applicant that the parapet wall should be raised to screen the HVAC units. Mr. Nicholson said that there was also a lot of discussion about parking and they would need to verify that they would be able to meet the parking ordinance. He stated that there are conflicting claims about the parking but that the reason this is being presented to the Council is because of the height issue. Mayor McArthur stated that he had received letters and exhibits regarding parking. He stated that in order to construct a building they have to meet the parking requirements. He asked if that was something that needed to be debated at the Council meeting. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that the Council may want to hear how they are going to meet the parking requirements before approving a Conditional Use Permit. Mr. Nicholson explained that there are some shared parking agreements that exist on the property. He repeated that the parking is one issue that needed to be resolved but the reason it is before the Council is building height. He stated that the applicant has lowered the height from the original 44' to 35' but it appears that the roof top units would still be exposed. Council Member Allen stated that in the papers she had it says that the property may have been illegally subdivided because the owner of the storage facility has stated to staff that he has purchased the property. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson replied that he was not aware of that issue. He said that the owners of the storage units were against the proposed building because of visibility issues. Council Member Allen said that it was in the Planning Commission report under ?Background.? City Attorney Shawn Guzman said that the attorney for the storage units was present at the meeting and that he could clarify the issue. Mr. Mike Zundel, stated that he is an attorney with Prince, Yeates & Geldzahler, and that his client is Larkin-Gifford-Overton. Mr. Zundel explained that the proposed building is only 3' taller than the existing three story building. He described where the proposed building would be built in conjunction with the Flood Street Theaters and the storage units. Mr. Zundel stated that the concern expressed by the Planning Commission about the height of the building was being addressed by the request for the Conditional Use Permit for a variance of the parapet or screening to allow for the HVAC system. Mr. Zundel explained to the Council that there is ongoing litigation between his client and Mr. Michael Hughes. Mr. Zundel quoted from a copy of his letter to City Attorney Shawn Guzman dated April 17, 2006 regarding Mr. Hughes? October 6, 2004 deposition. He stated that the litigation is in no way connected to the Conditional Use Permit. Mr. Zundel said that Mark and Janice Taylor, owners of the storage units, had also objected to the Conditional Use Permit. Mr. Zundel said that his client has taken into consideration the concerns about parking and will agree to build an additional 37 parking stalls in the eastern portion of its property. Mayor McArthur asked Mr. Zundel if there would be extra parking with the proposed plan. Mr. Zundel stated that there would be. He discussed the illegal use of parking by Caf? Rio employees and customers and how that encumbered approximately 30 spaces. He said that there would be a total of 308 parking stalls with the 37 additional parking stalls his client was willing to build. He said that would be in excess of the 270 that are technically required. Council Member Orton asked Mr. Zundel if he was using all of the cross easement agreements in calculating the total number of parking places. Mr. Zundel stated that he was but that it didn?t take into consideration the illegal use by Caf? Rio employees and customers. City Attorney asked Mr. Zundel if they took the disputed stalls out of the equation would there be enough parking. Mr. Zundel stated they would not. Council Member Orton asked for clarification about the purpose of the cross easement agreements. Mr. Zundel explained that the number of parking spaces is determined by taking the total number of square feet for all of the buildings included in the cross easement agreements. St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Eighteen City Attorney Shawn Guzman said that he thought after Mr. Hughes and Mr. Snow presented their issues the situation would be clearer. He said that they are talking about the height variance but that there are some other concerns that Mr. Hughes wants to address. Mayor McArthur asked if lowering the height from 44' to 35' brings it into compliance. City Attorney Guzman stated that the Planning Commission?s position is that the building is 3' above the 35' limit, therefore they require a Conditional Use Permit. He said that the applicant has offered to screen it by raising the parapet or by putting some other type of screening up. Mr. Michael Hughes stated that he is the trustee of the Vera R. Hughes Grandchildren?s Trust. He explained to the Council that after Caf? Rio opened for business, employees and customers began to use the parking spaces that were designated for his business. He said that he put up signs that said ?Parking Dixie Plaza Only.? He said that some time later he heard that Mr. Gifford had been selling parking spaces to Caf? Rio for $2,200 a month. Mr. Hughes quoted from a document entitled Declaration of New Easements and Covenants and stated that the parking was supposed to be common-area parking. Mr. Hughes stated that other than the eight parking spaces that are designated to him, all of the other parking spaces are non-exclusive and can be used by him, Sunroc, the movie theaters and the furniture store. Mr. Hughes said that in paragraph 12 it states that no parking and no structure is to be created at any time that would impede the free flow of traffic or free pedestrian traffic between the parcels. Mr. Hughes stated that the proposed building violates this by having a parking area behind the building. He stated that every other building that Mr. Gifford has previously built on this parcel has been built so that a portion of the building touches the periphery so the parking is central to the businesses. Mr. Hughes said that Mr. Gifford agreed in the year 2000 by a document drafted by his own counsel that all parking would be shared. Mr. Hughes stated that if the Council wanted to give him a permit to build a 38' high building they should do it with the conditions that he build it where parking will remain central and shared and that he be required to deed back into the Boulevard Parking Owners Association the property that he took out of it. He said that the southern 14' of the proposed building is on land that belongs to the Boulevard Parking Owners Association. He said that land was dedicated to parking in accordance and in furtherance of the agreement that Mr. Gifford had with him and with Mr. Gubler who owns the other property. He said that the proposed site implicitly creates a private parking area behind the building. Mr. Heath Snow stated that he represents Mark and Janice Taylor who are the owners of Boulevard Center Storage. He said that his clients were opposed to the Conditional Use Permit application that came before the Planning Commission. He stated that he learned for the first time that afternoon that they were not dealing with a 44.5' building but a 35' building that may go another 3' - 5'. He said that is a different Conditional Use Permit than the one that was originally submitted to the Planning Commission. Mr. Snow said that there is an issue with parking and the free flow of traffic. He stated that his client?s biggest objection is visibility. He explained that his clients are concerned about the view from St. George Boulevard and how the proposed building would block any view of their storage units and any signage they might install. Mr. Snow stated that his clients, as owners of Parcel 6, have the right to the cross parking easements. He said that the proposed building creates a private, secluded parking lot for the use of the proposed building. He stated that in his opinion the best thing to do would be to re-site the building so it keeps the view corridor open for his clients and centralized parking for everyone which would allow for the free flow of traffic, both pedestrian and vehicular. Council Member Orton asked Mr. Snow to clarify where his client?s parking was located and who shares in that parking. Mr. Snow said that his client has some limited parking in a small asphalt area near the parcel and also some parking that is behind a fenced area on the parcel. He stated that they have a secured area due to the nature of their business. He said that he wasn?t sure who actually used the parking outside of the secured area. City Attorney Guzman asked Mr. Snow if the identified parking is exclusive for his clients or if it is subject to the cross access agreement. Mr. Snow stated that he wasn?t sure. Mr. Hughes stated that is was subject to the access agreement. He explained that when Mr. Snow?s clients bought parcel 6 they bought into the Boulevard Parking Owner?s Association. Council Member Orton said that he would like the City staff to come back to Council when the parking issues have been resolved. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson said that the parking issue is very confusing and complicated because there are so many conflicting claims. He suggested that a title company get involved to look through the claims to determine if there are some legal issues that will need to be sorted out. St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Nineteen Council Member Orton stated that he would suggest doing that before he would feel comfortable voting on any type of request for this project. Council Member Gardner said that the placement of the building becomes a legal issue as it relates to the parking agreement and the deeding of the properties. He said that they could make a decision on the height of the building but questioned whether the applicant could build the building because of the parking access agreements. City Attorney Guzman said that he would assume that someone would seek an injunction from the court because of the view corridor that Mr. Snow?s clients are concerned about. He stated that he wasn?t certain that they have enough parking that is unencumbered to adequately serve the buildings. He said that Mr. Zundel stated that they do and Mr. Hughes stated that they do not. Mr. Guzman said that if a court were to rule in Mr. Hughes favor, it may mean that the City had approved a building that had an insufficient number of stalls as stated by ordinance. Mr. Zundel said that is why his client offered to build the additional 38 parking stalls. He stated that they can mute the issue by building the extra stalls. Council Member Orton said that he wanted the City staff to look at the parking issue and not take someone else?s word for it. Mr. Zundel said that the City staff has already done that. City Attorney Guzman asked Community Development Director Bob Nicholson what method City Planner Ray Snyder used in counting the parking stalls. Community Development Director Nicholson said that based on the information the applicants provided to the City, they met the parking requirements. He said that in addition they would put in 38 more parking spaces on the vacant piece of land behind the Caf? Rio. He stated that it appears they do meet the parking requirements. He said that they would have used the aggregate method to determine needed parking spaces because it is all shared parking. Council Member Orton asked if the Council could make a motion for the height variance but then put a list of restrictions of what the Council would like to see before the project starts. City Attorney Guzman stated that if they meet codes they could proceed to build once the Council approved the height variance. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to postpone the request until a decision is made by the judge and staff identifies all of the parking requirements. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. City Attorney Guzman said that there appears to be a pretrial date, but the actual trial could be scheduled quite a distance out. Mr. Guzman asked if the motion could have a date certain in order for staff and legal to review the parking issue. Council Member Orton agreed to modify his motion. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to postpone the request for a period of four weeks in order to give City staff an opportunity to review the parking requirements. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. Council Member Gardner said that he thinks it will come back to a legal interpretation by the courts of the cross parking agreements. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that he agrees with Council Member Orton. He said that the City needs some time to answer some of the concerns expressed. He said that they would like to see the title policy to make sure that the buildings aren?t built on shared parking. He said that he was not prepared to make a recommendation until he had more information. Mayor McArthur stated that he agreed with what the City Manager said but pointed out that the item before the Council was for a height variance and they had to meet all of the other requirements. City Attorney Guzman said that the Council could grant the height variance but if there is a question if they meet the parking requirements they could make it subject to a determination by staff. Mr. Guzman said that the direction to the legal staff was to make sure that staff sorts out the concerns about parking requirements. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Bunker - aye St. George City Council Minutes April 20, 2006 Page Twenty Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Gardner - nay The motion carried.

MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the sublease. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: May McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. Council Member Orton asked for clarification on the permitted use of the hangars. Mayor McArthur said that it has to be airport related. Council Member Orton stated that he has driven by the hangars and questions whether the use is airport related. City Attorney Guzman said that the lease specifies that the use has to be airport related. Council Member Orton said that he noticed some of the hangers have numerous cars and/or boats and motor homes. He asked if they have ever been inspected. Mayor McArthur said that the City used to inspect them. City Attorney Guzman said that he would ask Airport Manager, Michael LaPier, to take a look at the issue to see if the hangars are being used appropriately. Mayor McArthur asked City Attorney Guzman to contact Mr. LaPier to have him look into the matter. APPOINTMENTS: ...


City Council Minutes 05/26/2005:
...to be at the park one day a week. Ms. Woolsey will be the staff member to contact with regard to licensing issues and she can contact the appropriate staff member if there are other problems. As licenses are renewed vendors will have to be to meet the requirements of the ordinance. Mr. St. John person expressed concerns with Coral Cliffs School. City Manager Esplin commented the police should be notified of violations. Laura Woolsey suggested the changes include a stipulation that if a specific number of violations occur the vendor will be required to go before the council and face possible revocation of their license. Council Member Allen suggested the type of violation should also be taken into account when deciding the vendor goes to council for review. The group discussed what has to be done to comply with ordinance while the changes are being drafted and presented to the council for approval. City Attorney Guzman suggested allowing the caterers to continue to operate as they have been while staff drafts the ordinance. Mr. St. John man suggested enforcing the ordinance as it stands now. Laura Woolsey stated that in the year 2000 there was a problem with a mobile caterer operating in City parks in violation of the ordinance. Staff went to the council to ask for this to be allowed; council changed the ordinance to allow mobile caterers to operate in the parks. Mr. St. John stated during the time it took to change the ordinance, those mobile vendors were ticketed for violating the ordinance. He thinks the ordinance has to be enforced as it is right now. Mayor McArthur asked if the council can allow the ordinance to be violated during the time it takes to change the ordinance. City Manager Esplin said the council can allow the ordinance to be suspended and require operation to be conducted in such a manner as agreed on until the changes are made. Mayor McArthur and the council indicated this would be acceptable. Discussion concerning uses in neighborhood parks Present for this discussion: Matt Loo, Sergeant David Moss, Chief Stratton, Marc Mortensen, Leisure Services Kent Perkins Mayor McArthur indicated the issue concerns whether or not to install a restroom in Cox Park. City Manager Esplin explained City policy is to have restroom facilities in all neighborhood parks. There is a concern from staff that if council approves no restrooms in this park; will there be other requests for exemptions and how many parks will not have restroom facilities. There was a general discussion concerning the policy of restrooms in parks. Funds are not always available to build restrooms at the time some parks are constructed, but as funds become available, restrooms are built. Members of the audience raised concerns regarding crimes occurring in restrooms. Sergeant Moss explained there are some problems in restrooms in the parks, primarily vandalism. He reviewed police reports for Snow, Vernon Worthen and Bluff Street parks. There were about 140 police calls to the parks since January 2004. Of those incidents there were two reports of problems in the restrooms and they were graffiti problems. He then ran a search of park violations back to 1987 and found only a few issues of problems in bathrooms, none of which were violent crimes. Leisure Services Perkins explained there is only one stall on each side of the restroom (male and female side). The buildings are block constructed. The restrooms can be locked electronically or by hand. He commented the Parks Department has received a number of calls over the years concerning the lack of restroom facilities. Members of the audience expressed concern regarding the amount of unreported crimes with respect to restrooms, troubled youth that are brought in by the van full and may use the restrooms to commit crimes. The group discussed the possible new school that will be located in the area with soccer or ball fields and possibly constructing a restroom as part of that facility that can be used by those using the park. Council Member Orton indicated he doesn?t know how can the City can provide a public park and not have public restrooms. He stated the council is a steward of tax payer?s money, so it can?t construct facilities that are only for use by those living on one block; it has to provide facilities for the general public. Audience members voiced concern regarding the transient population along the river and that a restroom would lure this population in the neighborhood. The fence along the river was discussed. Audience members didn?t feel it was adequate to keep people out of the park as children climb over it. There was discussion of restrooms in the area, such as Harmon?s Grocery Store that are accessible to park users that don?t live in the area. An unnamed woman commented she witnessed a man bathing and shaving in the water fountain. Mayor McArthur detailed the property swap with the County, School District and City to facilitate the building of a new school and courthouse. Restrooms in schools are inside the schools. He suggested moving the restroom to another location within the park. There was discussion of locating the restroom south of the tennis courts. Chief Stratton commented that since the flood the area has been cleared of vegetation, the bike patrol now monitors the area to prevent the homeless from living there. He has also instructed motorcycle officers to patrol the areas along the rivers and trails. He asked the audience to call the police if they see anything of concern. Council Member Gardner complimented the police for being so proactive in taking care of community problems. He indicated it is encouraging to see the neighborhood rallying to protect kids, however, there are times when an individual needs a restroom is needed immediately and driving to a gas station or grocery store is not an option. He indicated the City has a responsibility to provide restrooms for the public at City facilities. Members of the audience expressed concern about inmates from Purgatory Correctional Facility using the park. The incident discussed concerned 12 inmates playing basketball with only one guard supervising. Mayor McArthur commented the City uses inmates for public service such as trash clean up along streets. The inmates that do this have earned a right to be out, they are low risk. Mrs. Black asked why the restroom wasn?t put in at the beginning. Mayor McArthur commented it wasn?t used because funds were limited. The hours the park is open was discussed. The park is open dawn to dusk. For events that happen after dark, a special permit is required. Neighbors should contact the police if the park is being used after hours. The group disc...

The Utah Department of Alcohol and Beverage Control will meet next week to consider their request. City Manager Gary Esplin mentioned that the Council has the authority to approve a proximity variance. The applicants meet all other requirements and staff supports the request.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Randall to set the public hearings for November 5, 2015. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Arial. VOTE: Mayor Pike called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Almquist – aye Councilmember Randall – aye Councilmember Bowcutt – aye Councilmember Arial – aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. BUILDING DESIGN CONCEPTUAL SITE PLAN: Planner Ray Snyder presented the building design conceptual site plan for Catamaran Plaza, a multi-family 160 unit, 4-story apartment complex located directly north of the electrical substation at the intersection of Riverside Drive and 1990 East and south of the existing Rebel Creek Ridge Apartments; zoning is R-3 and R-1-10. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit to construct a 4-story, 58-foot high apartment complex located near the intersection of Riverside Drive and 1990 East Street. MVA Properties, applicant. Mr. Snyder presented an aerial photo of the area, zoning map, general plan use map, a site plan showing the shape of the proposed apartment buildings, rendering, elevations, St. George City Council Minutes October 15, 2015 Page Nine photos of the material board, height levels of residency & parking and photos of the area. He explained the applicant is requesting 160 units and that this request has been to the Hillside Review Board. He then read staff’s comments as outlined in the agenda packet. The applicant is requesting a reduction in the parking spaces from 2 parking spaces per unit to 1.75 per unit. It is proposed that Planning Commission recommends approval with conditions relating to building design, colors & materials, site plan, parking reduction, parking spaces required, location of the parking spaces, guest parking spaces, total parking spaces, site plan review, density, density transfer, access, and lighting. Jared Nielson, applicant, stated their goal is to deed the larger parcel to the City in the future to maintain the open space. Their density is going to be 20 units per acres. Regarding parking, their Layton project is at 1.74 parking spaces per unit. Having the 50 additional parking stalls makes sense. There is a shallow ravine on the north side that will handle the drainage as well as a ravine near the south side that will be piped around that side of the property. Additional, there will be sloping in case the pipe cannot handle the water. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Almquist to approve the conditional use permit to construct 160 units for the Catamaran Plaza project including a height variance exceeding the 35’ including the conditions from the Planning Commission. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bowcutt. Conrad Walstrom who lives in the area stated that he never received notice of this proposal. He asked if there was ever an opportunity for the public to comment. Mr. Nielsen outlined the height of the buildings and explained that it will not affect any viewpoints. Mr. Snyder stated that letters were sent on October 7th to residents within a 300 foot radius explaining the request. A rendering and site plan were attached to the letters. Staff uses County documents to compile a list of those residents. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that is not a law, this is done as a courtesy. Staff does not check the accuracy of County records. City code allows for 35’ height; however, a property owner can request a height increase. If the larger parcel is not deeded to the City, it will be restricted to “no development” under a deed restriction.

MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to approve the preliminary plat. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott. VOTE: 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 22, 2005, recommended approval of the preliminary plat for Stone Valley Estates subject to (1) obtaining permission from the irrigation company to pipe the canal; (2) acquire the required property from Schmutz and Cox in order to meet the minimum roadway taper along 2780 East Street; and (3) work with the City Engineering Department on the proposed public street knuckle design and size by Lots 17 and 18 and the temporary turnaround on Lot 12. Brett Burgess, applicant, explained that he would like to make the roadway better and will provide access through a cut in the curb and with a curb approach on each side for a circular drive, create an easement within the area, and provide a 35' setback. Mr. Bradley explained that the applicant may choose not to proceed with the zone change if it can?t be made to work on the property. Staff anticipates that the road will connect, and the applicant has made provisions for the corner lot so that the road can connect to the 50' right-of-way for better circulation. Jim Raines explained that the road will be a through-road or a T-intersection, but it will not be a culdesac. The applicant is putting half the road in which will provide connectivity to the master planned road. The applicant has also met with the adjacent property owner?s engineers. He stated the applicant would prefer to put the curb and gutter in and then cut it so that the project looks finished.

MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to approve the annexation by ordinance. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott. MAYOR: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

Leon and Jackie Grover, applicants. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that this item was continued from the last City Council meeting. The property has since changed hands. The zone St. George City Council Minutes March 3, 2005 Page Six change request meets the requirements of the General Plan. The Planning Commission recommends approval. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Ken Phillips, a resident of the Wildflower Subdivision, stated he felt the zone change would cause conflict as he has horses, and according to City ordinance, horses have to be kept 100' from any house. He stated this would cause a hardship for him unless resolved. He then distributed a hand-out to the City Council. Mr. Nicholson explained that the 100' separation between horses and a house is contained within the conditional use permit provisions for riding stables, and would not apply in this case. No separation is required in an A-1 zone. Council Member Whatcott commented that this is the risk someone takes when they develop next to an A-1 zone. Bob Coleman, representing the applicant, explained that the request is for RE-20 zoning which would allow large animals. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to approve the zone change by ordinance. 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 Whatcott - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a zone change from RE-20 Residential Estates to RE-12.5 Residential Estates on 1.31 acres located at 2500 East 2070 South. Dan Steurer, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the applicant owns 1.3 acres of property located between two existing subdivisions, and the applicant?s request appears to be spot zoning. Under the current zoning, the applicant could have two lots. If RE-12.5 zoning is approved, the applicant would stipulate to a deed restriction limiting the property to three lots, each over 19,000 sq. ft., just shy of the minimum standards for RE-20 zoning. The Planning Commission recommended approval with a deed restriction or development agreement. Kelly Schmutz, Bush and Gudgell, advised that an easement was granted for a 50' roadway, but title to this property is still held by the applicant. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion to approve the zone change by ordinance subject to a deed restriction limiting the property to three lots was made by Council Member Whatcott. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. Council Member Allen suggested that any development agreement or deed restriction be approved by legal staff. AMENDED MOTION: Council Member Whatcott amended his motion to include the stipulation that any development agreement or deed restriction be reviewed by legal staff. SECOND: Council Member Bunker agreed to the amendment. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. St. George City Council Minutes March 3, 2005 Page Seven PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a zone change from R-2 Multiple Family Residential to RCC Residential City Center for the area referred to as ?Sandtown? located approximately north of 150 North, east of Bluff Street, south of the Red Hills Golf Course, and west of the Red Hill. Mayor McArthur announced that because a full City Council was not present, the public hearing would be held and continued, but no action would be taken. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained the differences between the R-2 and RCC zones. He clarified that all zones of the City allow rentals. The R-2 zone limits housing to two choices - single family or duplex. The RCC zone allows for more types of housing with a conditional use permit. Paul Bottema displayed a map of the area and stated that 50% of the homes are owner occupied and 50% are non-owned occupied. The purpose of the RCC zone is to encourage preservation of single family homes and promote new single family home developments and provide improved standards for multi-family dwellings. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Harold Jackson commented that there are many duplexes in his area where the meter has been split and there are three to four families renting one home. Bob Elliott commented that he owns property on north Main Street and plans on putting in multi-family housing. He requested that his property be excluded from RCC zoning, as it is surrounded by rentals. Linnell Prisbrey commented that his lots are 115'-119' deep and four rods wide and will not meet code if the zone is changed to RCC. He uses one lot for his home and one for his shop, and requested that they remain as currently zoned so that he can continue to use his lot for his business. Mayor McArthur explained that RCC zoning would not preclude him from using his property for what he presently uses it for. City Attorney Shawn Guzman agreed that present uses can remain if the zone if changed. Mr. Prisbrey stated that it would be better to enforce the ordinances than change the zone. He stated he wanted to change his property to a light commercial use and sell it. Mr. Guzman explained that as long as the property owner remains the same, the use can continue, but it cannot be expanded. If the property is sold, the new owner must comply with the present zoning. Council Member Allen inquired if those lots which are only a few feet shy of meeting the requirements for RCC zoning could be made exceptions with a development agreement. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that Mr. Prisbrey could not tear down his existing buildings and put in commercial as the property is not zoned commercial. If he were to develop under the RCC zone, he could apply for a conditional use permit with a development agreement. If the zoning remains as is, he could build as many residential units as allowed by the zone. His business is already a non-conforming use in a residential zone. Gloria Shakespeare commented that in an RCC zone, legally existing uses may continue indefinitely and may be replaced as provided in the City Code. Jay Blake, representing the Della Blake family, commented that his property is located on 200 North and surrounding by commercial development. He stated he would like to develop his property in multiple family housing, however, this would not be allowed under RCC zoning. He stated the proposed zone change would infringe on his rights, and he saw no reason to isolate his lot by zoning it RCC. Steve Bischoff commented that he recently purchased a home at 86 W. Diagonal with the hopes of turning it into a duplex to help finance his retirement. He would not be able to do this if the zone change were approved. Tom Wineberg commented that under current zoning, ten years from now the area will be nothing but little shacks that will reflect on the entire downtown area. Hyland Kirkland commented that he has lived in the area for 50 years and his property backs onto the backside of Gold?s Gym. He commented that there was a demand for duplexes and the zoning should not be changed, but rather better enforcement of the City?s current ordinances was needed. Penny Baker advised she lived at 349 North 200 West and likes the neighborhood the way it is and does not want to see the interior of the blocks filled with rental units. She stated she was in favor of RCC zoning. St. George City Council Minutes March 3, 2005 Page Eight Ted Spilsbury, a resident at 569 North 500 West, commented that while he was mindful of property owners with large lots, he also had a significant investment in his home, and is in favor of RCC zoning. Steve Duke explained that his lot is over 32,000 sq. ft. but has only 58.54 feet of frontage. He stated he would like to put in a couple of four-plexes, and was opposed to the proposed zone change. Louis Cook, a resident at 500 West 600 North, commented he was in favor of anything that would keep the neighborhood homeowner friendly. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur advised that the public hearing would be continued to the next City Council meeting. City Manager Gary Esplin encouraged anyone with knowledge of zoning violations to contact the City?s enforcement officer. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to continue the public hearing. 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 from R-1-10 Single Family Residential to PD Residential on 10.75 acres and amend the existing Cliffs at Snow Canyon to add the additional acres to the project located east of Snow Canyon Parkway at approximately 3052 North. Randy Deschamps, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the addition of this property would bring the project to 124 acres. A portion will require a hillside development permit. The applicant proposes 15 homes on the ten acre parcel, and has acquired the land with the intent to donate a portion to Snow Canyon State Park. That donation has not occurred and the applicant is withholding one lot from the plat until that donation occurs and the access issue is resolved. The Planning Commission recommends approval. City Manager Gary Esplin commented it was his understanding that the City did not have a correct legal description for the subject property. Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the acreage was correct as noticed, but the legal description has not yet been worked out. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that action could not be taken until there was a correct legal description. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Mary Ann and Jack Ferraro explained that they owned property adjacent to proposed Lot 209 in Kachina Cliffs and inquired if there would be a buffer zone. Randy Deschamps, applicant, replied that there would not be a buffer zone as the lots backed to each other. Mrs. Ferraro inquired if access to the Cliffs would be through Kachina Cliffs. Mr. Deschamps replied that Cliffs residents would access through their own entrance off Snow Canyon Parkway. Another access has been negotiated with Entrada for fire safety. MOTION: A motion to continue the public hearing to the next meeting was made by Council Member Whatcott. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/AMEND CITY CODE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider amendment to Title 10, Chapters 2 and 10, St. George City Code, to address the maximum size of individual buildings in the C-1 Neighborhood Convenience Commercial zone. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained this item was continued from the last City Council meeting when the City Council asked staff to research what other cities required in the C-1 zone. He surveyed ten cities, and the responses varied greatly among the cities. Council Member Whatcott asked Mr. Nicholson to identify the sizes of various buildings around town for a comparison. St. George City Council Minutes March 3, 2005 Page Nine Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to continue the public hearing. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. 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 operate a day care for up to 16 children in a home at 2424 East 2070 South in the Wild Flower Subdivision. Mrs. Jane Osterman, applicant. Assistant Planner Ray Snyder explained that the applicant is currently operating a day care for eight children. The Planning Commission recommends approval. There has been no opposition to the request. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to approve the request. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: 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 manager/security residence as a part of the Main Street Theater at 35 North Main. John Clemons, applicant. Assistant Planner Ray Snyder explained that the City Code provides for a manager/security personnel residence in a commercial zone. Shared parking arrangements have been made for one parking space in the back. The Planning Commission recommends approval. Les Stoker, architect, explained the stairway will be at the back of the building and is the only access to the apartment. The apartment will be located above the stage area. Seismic issues with the building still remain to be addressed. The proposed apartment will be about 2,000 sq. ft., have one bedroom, and will be occupied by the owner. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to approve the request. 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 expand an existing substation and build a communication microwave repeater located along Cottonwood Springs Road approximately 1.3 miles north of the intersection of Red Rock Road and Middleton Drive. Mark Cox for PacifiCorp, applicant. Assistant Planner Ray Snyder explained that the purpose of the CUP is for voice communications, SCADA and relay protection which can be controlled remotely from the City?s yard. The applicant would like to fence off 24 acres for location of the repeater. The Planning Commission recommended approval with the stipulation that the road could be adjusted or removed in the best interests of the City?s road master plan. The project is designed to bring electrical power and consistency to the community and will help prevent blackouts in the future and provide for future growth. Council Member Whatcott explained that as discussed in the Water and Power Board meeting, this is a $90 million project looking toward the future needs of southern Utah, and is the first step in bringing more reliable power to St. George. Mark Cox, Utah Power, explained that the initial plan will take the project to 2009. Over the next ten to fifteen years of growth, the 138 lines will be replaced with a 345 line. The wood line from Red Butte in the Central area will be replaced with steel towers. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the request. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. AMENDED PD PLAN: Consider approval of an amended PD plan for Pinebrook North. Cary Blake, applicant. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that as discussed previously, the Pheasant Springs PD was not entirely completed as originally platted. A private street services this PD and the applicant has presented a plan for an LDS Church to the north and a small subdivision St. George City Council Minutes March 3, 2005 Page Ten to the east, with the understanding that the Pheasant Springs homeowners board does not want the street opened up for public use and taken over by the City. This was a condition of previous approval. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the applicant proposes a nine lot subdivision, and has had a lot of discussion with the Pheasant Springs HOA about alternatives. The most recent proposal is for a culdesac at the end of the public street and a small driveway off the culdesac as a connection to the private street. The Pheasant Springs HOA indicates that they can live with this but requests a gate as they do not feel brick pavers and signage will discourage use of the private street. The City Engineering Department recommends approval without a gate but with signage. If a problem continues with through traffic, a gate can be looked at as a last resort to control traffic. Elaine Jacobonie, representing the homeowners in Pheasant Springs, expressed concern about increasing traffic. She stated she did not think signs would deter people from using the private street. Cary Blake presented pictures of gates which could be used. Mark Walters advised they would do whatever the City Council wanted them to do. Kim Campbell, architect, explained that the church would take care of the hammerheads and block wall between the church and adjacent homes. There would be no access through the block wall. Council Member Bunker suggested that access be kept open and a gate not installed. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the City could require the developer to post a cash bond for the cost of the gate as he would hate to see the City have to pay for the gate if there is a problem down the road. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised the bond would have to be for a time certain so that it could be released at some point. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to approve the amended PD plan with a connecting street off the culdesac without a gate, require a bond for the gate if needed in the future, and the other conditions such as a turn-around as discussed at the last meeting, pavement stamping, signage, and a gate, if needed at a later date, constructed to City specifications. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. Council Member Allen instructed residents of Pheasant Springs to contact the City if there is a problem with through traffic. TIE DOWN LE...


City Council Minutes 02/10/2005:
...he next 30-60 days. General Stockton - Indicated that he had been in contact with his staff in Utah and he was sure they did not understand that the City is in eminent danger. He promised to make some telephone calls and get back to Mayor McArthur that evening. The Mayor expressed his appreciation and ended the call. He asked that the Council refocus on the flood ordinance and called for a motion. Council Member Orton made a motion to approve the Flood Ordinance as written. Council Member Whatcott seconded and the vote was unanimous as follows: Council Member, Suzanne Allen Aye Council Member, Gail Bunker Aye Council Member, Larry Gardner Aye Council Member, Rod Orton Aye Council Member, Robert Whatcott Aye FLOOD UPDATE Gary Esplin explained that while FEMA and other agencies have been extraordinary, they have very strict guidelines to follow. However, progress is being made. A needed waterline has been bid out and is ready to proceed. Staff is working on bids for golf courses, parks, bridges, roads, etc. Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has already received a $6,000,000 allocation for infrastructure. Unfortunately, they must allocate Administrative charges off the top (which could be up to $1,000,000) the rest will be designated to infrastructure in Santa Clara, St. George and the County. The NRCS priority list includes: 1) clean debris from the confluence to above Gunlock; 2) channel protection for the Swiss Village in Santa Clara, 3) Dixie Drive from the Mathis to the Dixie Drive bridges. Staff is getting easements to do this work now. Councilman Orton asked if cleaning under the Man o? War bridge is included. Mr. Esplin told the group that while it must be done, there will some problems getting matching funds. He had been under the impression that volunteer labor would be counted toward our match on all projects, but now he finds that it can only be used for temporary repairs or emergency responses. Permanent repairs require cash and the City could be liable for up to $1,250,000. At this point, General Stockton called Mayor McArthur. He said he had spoken with Acting Division Commander, Colonel Flora, and as he suspected, Colonel Flora was not aware of the eminent danger. General Stockton vowed to remove any impediments to the cash flow from the Corp. Following General Stockton?s telephone call, Gary Esplin continued his flood update. He explained that the Federal Highways are willing to help with cleaning under the Mathis, Dixie Drive and Man o? War Bridges, the problem is what kind of environmental documents need to be done in order to use their money. He said staff has contacted Senators Bennett and Hatch to get a supplemental appropriation to complete some of our priority work. Mr. Esplin indicated that, financially, the biggest problem is the golf courses. The City is losing a great deal of money while they are out of commission. Council Member Gardner noted that residents have noticed the sand bar below the Man o? War bridge and are concerned. He asked if it can be removed under emergency funding. Mr. Esplin said that staff has worked out a deal with a contractor who needs all of the silt and will haul it to his project, a short distance away, for free. Bidding requirements can be waived because he needs it now and it is a short haulage, which will save the roads in the area. Council Member Orton wondered if the needs of the home owners are being met, which led to a discussion of the various fund raisers in the community and in particular a book being edited by Lyman Hafen and sold at the Parade of Homes to benefit flood victims. Council Member Bunker indicated they will go on sale February 17 at 7:00 p.m. in the Mall and at Lin?s Market. NEW BUSINESS Council Member Gardner told the group that he had attended an Economic Development Meeting on behalf of Mayor McArthur. He indicated that a $2,000,000 recycling company is considering St. George, along with 4-5 other areas, to relocate their plant. The company processes 100 tons of recycled paper annually which in turn is sold to tissue paper manufacturers, etc. They would employee approximately 50 people. Mayor McArthur asked if there was need to adjourn to Executive Session. Gary Esplin responded that he had some items to discuss. ADJOURN TO EXECUTIVE SESSION Council Member Gardner made a motion to move into Executive Session. Council Woman Allen seconded and the vote was unanimous. RETURN TO WORK MEETING Council Member Gardner made a motion to adjourn and Council Member Whatcott seconded. The motion passed unanimously. Council Member Allen asked Mr. Esplin how the City was going to pay the State loan now due. He indicated he felt it would be forgiven. Council Member Gardner announced that he had not told a potential restaurant owner who is looking at renting in his Main Street building that the City and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints would approve his liquor license in spite of the fact that they are within 500 ft. of a Church and a park. The group discussed the fact that the Tabernacle may not be a working Church and the Zion?s Bank Park is more in the line of landscaping that a park. They directed The City Attorney?s Office to contact the Church and State to get direction. ADJOURNMENT Hearing no...


City Council Minutes 12/13/2001:
...was shut down and a criminal citation issued. His client has had numerous contacts with the landlord, but a long term lease cannot be negotiated until and unless the City grants permission for the operation. He advised that the retail gasoline operation will be phased out by selling the gasoline so that the current lessee can recoup his investment. The auto sales business may also hire the current lessee to do work on cars in the shop. The outer gasoline island will be capped and the inside gas island retained for private business use only. This use is consistent with other car lots approved by the City Council, such as the St. George Motor Cars lot on Bluff Street which was allowed to operate without a paved parking lot or landscaping, and they were not shut down. He advised that his client can meet landscaping and parking requirements, and the shared access is already there. The only issue remaining is the current lessee would like to sell gasoline for six months. Mayor McArthur replied that the used car lot on 400 East St. moved all its cars until it could comply with the City?s ordinance. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that staff is concerned about two businesses operating at one location, however, if the retail gas sales will be phased out in six months, this may be an option to consider. Council Member Allen advised that the Planning Commission?s recommendation contained a six month time limit for phasing out the existing retail gasoline business. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that he did not see how an application could be made without the owner?s participation. Mr. Kuhlmann replied that the car lot will lease the property from the owner. He advised that originally his client and the lessee had talked about a joint use of the property, but that now is not their intent, and the lessee simply wants to recoup his financial expenditure. Any fuel purchased in the future will be for use by cars on the lot, and not for retail sales. Council Member Whatcott inquired why it would take six months to empty the gas tank. Council Member Allen replied that the six month period was suggested by the Planning Commission, and it was also for changing the sign. Mr. Bradley advised that the ?Shell? sign will be removed as well as one of the existing pole signs. St. George City Council Minutes December 13, 2001 Page Seven Ryan Hafen, current lessee of the property, advised he could empty the gas tank in 10-15 days. He stated he would still be doing service work for car dealerships in town such as changing oil, filters and lubes. Council Member Allen commented this was a common component of used car and other car-related businesses. Council Member Gardner suggested shortening the phase-out period. Mayor McArthur called for a vote on the motion and second previously made. The vote was as follows: Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - no Council Member Isom - no Council Member Gardner no The motion failed. A motion was made by Council Member Allen to approve the conditional use permit subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission with a phase-out period of three months rather than six. The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner, who commented he thought the business met the requirements of the ordinance, even with mechanic service as it is closely related. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Orton - no Council Member Whatcott - no The motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a request for a zone change from R-1-10 Single Family Residential to AP Administrative and Professional Office for a new health center to be located at 1400 East on the south side of Foremaster Drive. David Blake, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised that the general plan identifies the area as professional office. A public hearing on the master plan was held in May 1998 at which time this property was changed from medium density to professional office. Thus, the request is in compliance with the master plan and the Planning Commission recommends approval. If the zone change is approved, a variance for the height of the first building will be considered later on the agenda. The proposed building will be located along Foremaster Drive at curb level. David Blake, applicant, advised that he represented 20 physicians and health care professionals, all combined in an attempt to create a small health care campus as an adjunct to the adjacent hospital. As noted, the site is undulating in nature with low and high spots, but this site will be level and at the same elevation as the adjacent street. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised that the City has received a petition from the Meadow Creek homeowners claiming that the zone change request constitutes spot zoning. However, it is not spot zoning as the St. George City Council Minutes December 13, 2001 Page Eight request is in compliance with the master plan, and is adjacent to the hospital campus across the street with similar zoning. Dean Williams, a resident of Meadow Creek, advised that he represented 80 homeowners in the adult community who will be affected by the zone change. He advised that when he and others purchased their homes adjacent zoning was residential and he was assured it would remain that way. He advised the zone change would be spot zoning because it changes a residential area into a commercial area, and it would destroy the integrity of the single family homes in Meadow Creek. He also expressed concern about elimination of height restrictions, traffic patterns, and drainage problems. He encouraged the Mayor and City Council not to destroy the integrity of the area and to deny the zone change. He commented that adjacent homes would be lower than the proposed site and to have a 50' structure above the roof level line would interfere with the view and depreciate property values in Meadow Creek. He advised that approving this zone change would have a domino effect on the entire area. He urged denial of the zone change. Mayor McArthur replied that under the old master plan, the property in question was designated as medium density residential, 13 units per acre, and apartments could have built on the property. In 1998 at the time the master plan was changed, residents of Meadow Creek advised they would rather see the master plan changed to Administration Professional than have apartments. That master plan is now in effect. Dr. Michael Anderson advised that he was among the 20 physicians and health care specialists who would like to develop a first class medical complex adjacent to the new hospital. He advised they feel that better care will be provided and the new building will be convenient for patients. He encouraged approval of the zone change request in the best interests of the community. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. Council Member Whatcott commented that if he lived in Meadow Creek and had the option of having adjacent property developed with 13 units per acre or having AP zoning, he would prefer AP zoning. He made a motion to approve the zone change as requested. Council Member Orton seconded the motion. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Gardner - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that something will be built on the vacant property immediately next to Meadow Creek unless the Foremaster family donates the property to the City. Council Member Gardner commented it was still the plan of the Foremaster family to continue with the donation. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a request for a zone change from A-20 Agricultural 20 acre minimum lot size and RE-12.5 Residential Estates 12,500 sq. ft. minimum lot size to R-1-12 Single Family Residential 12,000 sq. ft. minimum lot size on 26.647 acres at approximately 2400 East on 1450 South. Paul Jensen, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised the subject property is located on the north side of 1450 South across from the Stonecliff project. St. George City Council Minutes December 13, 2001 Page Nine He is planning to expand The Springs Estates project to the east and is requesting a zoning designation of R-1-12, the same as the rest of The Springs Subdivision, except animals are not allowed. The Planning Commission recommends approval. Paul Jensen, applicant, advised there is a total of 74 acres in the project, with 11 acres donated to the City for a park. The reason R-1-12 zoning is being requested is because larger lots without animals are desired. 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 Allen to approve the zone change as requested. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a request for a zone change from R-1-8 Single Family Residential to R-2 Duplex Residential on .832 acre located north of Diagonal Street on 500 West Street which will consist of two duplex units and nine detached units. Habitat for Humanity, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised the property in question is 1.8 acres. The lower half of the property is currently zoned R-2 and the applicant is asking for the balance of the property (.83 acre) to be zoned R-2. Years ago this property was zoned PD Residential, but has since expired due to lack of activity, and it reverted back to R-1-8 zoning. The applicant is proposing 14 dwelling units with access to 500 West. 500 West is about two feet shy of what a standard public street is, but would accommodate the increased traffic. The Planning Commission unanimously recommended denial based on incompatibility issues. Rebecca Stucki, representing Habitat for Humanity, applicant, advised that in February, 1999 the City adopted an affordable housing plan to support non-profit housing organizations in development projects via technical assistance, including zoning. Habitat for Humanity provides pride in home ownership and stabilization of communities. She advised that she and others have spent many hours visiting with concerned residents, and Habitat for Humanity has come to the conclusion that the project is necessary and will have a minimum impact on the neighborhood and solve issues such as access and traffic. Access is off Diagonal and will be along 500 West. Staff has reviewed the plan and determined that the increased traffic will not adversely affect the area. Additionally, the illegal subdivision in this area will be eliminated through the development process. Rosenberg Associations made an analysis of drainage from the hillside via two small natural channels. At least one resident in the area has changed the natural flow and it now comes across the proposed site. The total area of drainage is 13 acres, and the total area draining into Flood Street is 324 acres, so the two cannot be compared. According to Rosenberg Associates, a 24" pipe is more than sufficient to handle the drainage, and an additional three catch basins have been included in the budget for the project. She then distributed copes of the drainage study. She advised that the City has reviewed the hillside issue and determined the project is within hillside guidelines. All issues are manageable, and as the current zoning stands, 10 homes can be built on the property. There is already one existing home on the property. The zone change will allow an increase of three more homes to be built, and is of great importance to keep the project affordable. It is also the St. George City Council Minutes December 13, 2001 Page Ten intent to have all the homes under one association controlled by Habitat for Humanity for the length of the mortgage. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Joy Ann Carey commented that the proposed project will surround her home, and while she has raised her children and two foster children, she would prefer not to have children playing around her bedroom and patio area. She advised when she bought her property the adjacent property was not zoned duplex, and duplex zoning would be disruptive to her home and will change the character of the neighborhood. She advised that 500 West is a substandard street with no parking. She commented the proposed project will be crowded, and a place for children to play should be planned in the middle of the proposed project, and not adjacent to her home. She advised that the Hidden Cove condominiums have had a large impact on the area, and with the addition of the proposed project, there will be two congested areas which will negatively impact the entire area. She commented she has worked hard to create an oasis, and while she is not against Habitat for Humanity, she hoped that when the City Council voted, they voted as if they lived in her neighborhood and considered the problems which currently exist there. She commented that the land is a legacy for generations to come, and so many homes should not be put in such a small area. Geri Hansen advised she lived adjacent to the property in question, and she bought there because of the open space and lack of congestion. However, since then nearby zoning has been changed, including development of the Hidden Cove project, and now the applicant is proposing to put another development right up to the property line. She advised there have been boulders and sand come down from the hill during rain storms, and she has seen several 100 years storms in the 30 years she has lived there. She also expressed concern about access for fire trucks and other emergency vehicles. She advised there are real safety issues, including parking concerns. Mayor McArthur advised the proposed development will have to meet parking standards. Ms. Hansen replied that parking standards may be met, but not common sense. She inquired about the square footage of the proposed units. Mr. Nicholson replied the ordinance requires a minimum of 900 sq. ft. Ms. Hansen replied that some of the units on the plat are 20' x 38'. Council Member Whatcott commented that he had the same concern, but a correction was made and the units will be 30' x? 38. Mark Fonger, Rosenberg Associates, advised there will be two off-street parking spaces per unit, resulting in four parking spaces per unit, and all of the units will be single level. Jeff Jennings distributed copies of a hand-out and played a two minutes video of the adjacent hillside during a ran storm. He advised that he measured 500 West Street, and there is only 29' of asphalt. If vehicles are parked on either side of the street only 11 feet of passageway is left, and this is the situation right now. The street now is dangerous, and the applicants are proposing a 25' private street off of it. He advised that all of the water from the hillside currently drains onto the proposed property. The project is completely out of harmony with the neighborhood. Hidden Cove has no off-site parking and visitor parking is bad. Additionally, there are problems at the nearby intersections. He stated that while Habitat for Humanity would like the City Council to think that those opposed to the project are opposed to poor people, this could not be further from the truth, and many residents built their homes themselves. Additionally, there are water pressure problems in the area, as well as drainage problems. He stated he would like to know why Habitat for St. George City Council Minutes December 13, 2001 Page Eleven Humanity does not care about the feelings of the residents of the area, as they have said they are going to build whether the residents like it or not. He stated the purpose for zoning is to protect, not change, and the request for rezoning is from the developer, not property owner. A landlocked area of at least an acre will also be created if the zone change is approved and the project built. He advised that many health and safety issues already exist, and zoning problems, density, street, safety and flood problems cannot be resolved. The proposed project will require detention basins and head walls, and there will be surface drainage, and where it will all go has not been addressed. He requested that the zone change be denied. Ellen Kinect, a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity and a resident of the area, stated she did not foresee any problems with traffic or access onto or off of 500 West and 600 North. She advised there are existing flooding problems, no matter what, every time it rains, and this is a problem in the entire area. She advised that Habitat for Humanity has worked hard to address the drainage issues which may affect the neighborhood. She commented that many of the fears of the adjacent homeowners were unfounded. Ken Ashman inquired where the children would play when so many homes would be squeezed into the area. He commented that if Habitat for Humanity were really concerned about people, they would not squeeze them into a motel-type situation. Gary Kuhlmann advised that he spoke on behalf of 40 homeowners, and the issue was not about Habitat for Humanity or a charitable program for affordable housing, but about a zone change and a neighborhood. The issue is about changing the zone to a higher density and changing the character of a neighborhood. He stated he believed the project violated the General Plan and should not be considered, as the Zoning Ordinance says zoning shall be construed to follow platted lot lines, therefore this zone change is premature without a General Plan amendment. Rezoning to R-2 would violate the General Plan, as well as impact the hillside. In 1988 this property was divided into three lots, and now constitutes an illegal subdivision. The City?s position has always been that an illegal subdivision must be cured before other matters concerning the property can be considered. Habitat for Humanity?s proposal will not cure the problem, but will create another illegal subdivision. If the City allows this zone change and development, it will be contrary to everything the City has historically done. As the present zoning stands, Habitat for Humanity can build ten units. He inquired why this was not enough. If the zone change is granted, it will impact the neighborhood and character of the hillside. However, not all adjacent property owners are against the zone change. Marian Gallian spoke in favor of the zone change at the Planning Commission meeting, and in fact said that she would then rezone her properties to multi-family. He advised that the width of the street is so narrow that trash trucks have to back down the street as there is not enough room to turn around. He urged denial of the zone change. Andy Sherman, a resident of St. George and volunteer for Habitat for Humanity, advised that Habitat for Humanity has built three homes in Santa Clara and had to deal with difficult issues at that time such as slopes, blue clay, pier and stem wall structures, etc., and was still successful in building inexpensive homes affordable by low income people. Habitat for Humanity does not make money by building these homes and sells them on a zero percent interest mortgage with the purpose to make the dream of home ownership possible for all people. It should be the agenda of the City to help all citizens within the community realize that dream. He commented that all issues could be resolved, and Rebecca Stucki addressed every issue with facts. By building 13 units instead of 10, Habitat for Humanity can keep the costs that much lower so the monthly payments will be affordable. He stated that the program would not bring drug addicts and low-lifes into the neighborhood, but quality people who otherwise lack a support system to afford their own home. He urged the City Council to not get distracted by issues of insignificance. St. George City Council Minutes December 13, 2001 Page Twelve Bruce Jenkins, the attorney for Habitat for Humanity, advised that the proposed project was consistent with the character of the neighborhood, and the City Council could not decide the issue on the sole basis of public clamor. Legitimate facts in favor of the project had been presented, and the project will help to relieve congestion and provide a place for vehicles to turn around, as well as provide access to the hillside. The upper property will not be landlocked. The project will be a blended one with townhome and single family residences, not uncommon to St. George. The project is in harmony with the Master Plan, and the illegal subdivision can be cured and all problems cleared up. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. Fire Chief Robert Stoker commented that the area in general was a real problem. Many of the roads in the area are 25' in width and inaccessible to emergency vehicles when vehicles park on the sides of the road. Some of the curbs in the area have been designated as ?no parking? but this has also become a maintenance issue. He stated that he had not seen the plans for the proposed project and could not specifically comment on them. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the City has learned from the past about problems with PD-sized streets in these types of developments, whether public or private, and they are an enforcement nightmare. However, the issue before the Council tonight is simply the zone change and that is all it can consider. He commented that the City has shown through its past efforts that it supports Habitat for Humanity through its low income affordable housing program, and has deferred impact fees to help with home ownership. It is also supporting Habitat for Humanity through a grant for use wherever Habitat desires to help with affordable housing. Whether the zone change is right for this area is the issue to be considered. City Attorney Jonathan Wright commented that as to the illegal subdivision, at one point in time three divisions of a parcel of property was allowed, and he was not sure when the division of this property took place. However, before a building permit could be issued for this project, the illegal subdivision would indeed have to be rectified. Ofttimes the City is not aware of an illegal subdivision until the property is developed. As far as the Master Plan, the Planning Commission determined that the zone change request did not require a change in the Master Plan. The City Council would have to look at this and determine whether they believe the zone change request is consistent with the Master Plan, and if not, send the request back through the General Plan amendment process. Council Member Isom commented that if the City Council approves the zone change, deed restrictions could be placed on the property. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised that deed restrictions cannot be made as part of a zone change. Council Member Isom commented that she felt the petition in opposition to the zone change was signed by many people who simply did not want Habitat for Humanity there. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that traffic, drainage, and off-site improvements will be dealt with as part of the development approval process, but tonight the City Council is simply considering a zone change from R-1-8 to R-2. With regard to drainage, he advised he had not seen anything from staff to verify Rosenberg?s findings, one way or the other. Mayor McArthur advised that the City Council must decide if the zone change is an appropriate change for the area, fits in the area, and fits the Master Plan. St. George City Council Minutes December 13, 2001 Page Thirteen Council Member Allen commented that if the zone change is granted, the area will be vested with R-2 zoning and could be used for other purposes which would not put any more density on the property than being proposed by the applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised that R-2 zoning would allow a duplex on 8,000 sq. ft. City Attorney Jonathan Wright pointed out that when looking at the zone change, the City Council is not looking at the proposed project unless it is a PUD. They should consider what the proposed density would do to the area, and what impact the it would have on the neighborhood. Council Member Allen inquired about the maximum density of R-2 zoning on an 8/10 of an acre site. Council Member Gardner commented that the City Council must focus on the zone change and not the proposed plan, and while he appreciated Rebecca Stucki and her staff, he did not believe the neighborhood was opposed to Habitat for Humanity but instead concerned about density issues. As he drove the streets in this area, he recognized what Chief Stoker said about narrow streets, and there is no place to turn around except by encroaching into driveways. City Manager Gary Esplin commented this concern was germane to the zone change question because of the additional density to the area, as were safety concerns. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson replied to Council Member Allen?s question that R-2 zoning would generally allow five duplexes on 8/10 of an acre. Rick Rosenberg replied this was incorrect and only four duplexes would be allowed. Council Member Orton stated that while he was supportive of Habitat for Humanity, the project was not appropriate for the neighborhood. He made a motion to deny the request. The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Isom - no The motion carried. Mayor McArthur commented that denial of this request did not preclude Habitat for Humanity from proceeding by meeting the requirements of the zone. He called for a five minutes break. Council Member Gardner and City Attorney Jonathan Wright were temporarily excused from the meeting. Deputy City Attorney Ron Read took his place on the stand. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a request for a zone change from OS Open Space on the Bloomington Country Club golf course to R-1-10 Single Family Residential 10,000 sq. ft. minimum lot size on .760 acre on Bloomington Drive West. Don Oborn, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised the subject property is located on the fringe of the golf course. The applicant tentatively proposes three lots. There is a restroom on the subject property, and several residents St. George City Council Minutes December 13, 2001 Page Fourteen have expressed concern that they do not want it in their backyards. There is also concern about loss of views. The Planning Commission recommended approval in the absence of any negative comments from neighbors. Mayor McArthur commented that the City has received several requests similar to this over the years, and inquired if any of them had been granted. Mr. Nicholson replied that six to seven years ago a similar request was received for eight to ten lots, and the City Council approved three. Any time Open Space is rezoned around a golf course there is controversy. Council Member Orton declared a possible conflict of interest as he is a member of the Country Club, but advised he would vote. Don Oborn, Vice President of the Bloomington Country Club, advised two membership meetings were held where this issue was discussed with the consensus being to proceed. The property consists of 400 sq. ft. of open space, with 300' proposed for development. Two areas on either side will be left as open space. He advised he personally visited with adjacent property owners and did not receive one negative response. The proposal will improve the area. There is also a serious problem with security on the golf course, and greens adjacent to the area have been damaged every year by motorcycles and four wheelers. Fencing is not desired. The restroom will be relocated. The Country Club has received tentative offers to purchase the land. Council Member Orton advised that the City Council has been working to obtain open space. He inquired if the property could be donated to the City for use as a park. Mr. Oborn replied it was not a good option to donate the land for a park as the area is too small, and would not solve the other problems. The Country Club would also like the money from sale of the lots. He advised he did not foresee another similar request from the Country Club. One tee will have to be moved, as well as a cart path, and the restroom will be relocated and landscaped. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Marty Scilatta, past president of the Bloomington Country Club, advised he was not opposed to the rezoning, but was opposed to the fact that Mr. Oborn could not say where the restroom would be located. He stated he lived next to the 13th tee and understands the Club?s inclination is to move the restroom toward the back of his home. He proposed that the proposal be altered to two lots instead of three and allow the restroom to remain where it is. He stated he did not remember any membership meeting where this subject was addressed, and while the Board makes the decisions, the membership must approve them. He advised that Mr. Oborn will not be on the board as of January 1, and it is not known what the new trustees will want to do with this request. He stated that one of the reasons he purchased his lot was because of the view and the master planned community. The lots which were created a few years ago do not intrude on the fairway, but creation of these lots will. He advised that relocating the restroom will require that it be hooked to the City?s sewer system and the Country Club does not have any idea how much it will cost to move it. He stated that while he realized these issues did not apply to the zone change, they are important. The purpose of the sale is to get revenue for the Club, and there are other ways of raising revenue rather than altering a master planned community. He suggested the matter be tabled until a location for the restroom is identified. Richard Abbott, President of the Board of Trustees, advised that the zone change would be an improvement to the area, as well as resolve safety concerns and raise revenue for the Club. He stated he advised Mr. Scilatta that the location of the restroom would not be determined until City approval was obtained, and he was sorry the internal problems of the Board were brought to St. George City Council Minutes December 13, 2001 Page Fifteen the Council?s attention. The Board is fully in favor of the project, and the two new Trustees coming on to the Board in January are aware of the project. Council Member Orton inquired if the neighbors across the street had been consulted about losing their views. Mr. Oborn replied that he spoke with them and they have no problem with the project. When the restroom is moved it can be lowered, and will be landscaped. Mr. Scilatta advised he did not want hard feelings, but would like to know where the restroom is going to be located. Connie Keate advised that she was grateful for the opportunity to see the vistas from the property, and would rather see the view than more homes. The original planner and designer of Bloomington was inspired to keep some of the area open space, and there are still 11 vacant lots around the golf course with 12 on the interior. Ken Keate endorsed the comments made by his wife and stated if 50' were left on each side of the proposed lots, the golf course would not have any more security than it does now. He advised that many of the residents like the open space, location of the tees, and location of the restroom as it now stands. They would also like to have a view of the course from the street. He encouraged the City Council to not alter the master planned community, and suggested the Country Club may spend more relocating the restroom than they receive from sale of the lots. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the City is supportive of the open space concept, and when an area is altered, it changes the complexion of everything else around it. This is not the first time the City has dealt with this issue and he did not know if it would be the last. Council Member Whatcott advised he recently played in a tournament at the Bloomington Country Club, and from a personal standpoint did not see how the lots could be developed and the view blocked as the community was planned and designed with open space. He made a motion to deny the request. The motion was seconded by Council Member Isom. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Orton - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. City Attorney Jonathan Wright returned to the stand. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider a request for approval of a conditional use permit for Southwest Auto Sales at 696 East St. George Blvd. Jeremy Wagner, applicant. Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that this property has been used for auto sales in the past. The Planning Commission recommended approval with the following conditions: (1) the disabled parking be located at an appropriate location; and (2) if the access is ever removed from St. George Blvd., the four foot landscape strip is to be extended over to the property line. St. George City Council Minutes December 13, 2001 Page Sixteen A motion was made by Council Member Isom and seconded by Council Member Orton to approve the request subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider a request for approval of a conditional use permit for a building to be taller than 35' at about 1500 East Foremaster Drive. David Blake, applicant. Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the arch of the proposed three story medical office building will reach a height of 52', but the majority of the building will be 43'. The Planning Commission recommended approval subject to the zone change just approved by the City Council at this meeting. David Blake advised that the elevation of the building will stay the same. There is some contemplation about an underground parking garage, but this will change the elevation. Parking will be to the east of the building. The site is seven acres. A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott and seconded by Council Member Orton to approve the conditional use permit. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. Dean Williams commented that when the City Council approves zone changes, it opens the door for other changes. He protested the request for increased building height because the homeowners want to preserve the integrity of their homes by protecting the view. He stated that a high rise building meant more traffic, and inquired if a traffic study had been performed. Council Member Orton advised that the City Council had no intention of hurting the residents of Meadow Creek Subdivision, but the zone change request is compatible with the master plan. Height issues are looked at on a case by case basis, and it is not unusual for a medical office building to be three stories in height and the building blends well. Mayor McArthur commented that the City Council chose to keep the height restriction to 35' so that it could evaluate each request for increased height on a case-by-case basis. Mr. Williams stated that residents are entitled to the security of the ordinance which restricts height to 35'. Raymond Duke, President of the Meadow Creek Homeowners Association advised that the City has now accepted their sewer system. He advised there were 16-20 people who lived on the east side of the project who would be affected by the project. Council Member Gardner returned to the stand. St. George City Council Minutes December 13, 2001 Page Seventeen CLARIFICATION OF CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Clarification of a conditional use permit for the Ted Warthen Center. Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that when the conditional use permit for the Ted Warthen Center was originally approved, the applicant was advised to work with the neighbors. The neighbors do not feel what the applicant is proposing will work. At the time of the conditional use permit approval, Mr. Birbas expressed concern with trash receptacles from the project, and the applicant stated that if a wall were required, they would put one in. The ordinance states that a 6' solid wall is required if adjacent to a residential zone, but this is a residential zone with a conditional use permit. The ordinance also states that a 4' wall or berm is required to screen the parking area, and the applicant is proposing to place a berm with trees between the building the adjacent neighbors. Mr. Birbas does not feel this is adequate and requested that the matter be reheard to determine if a wall is required. Lou Birbas advised he represented four of the five adjacent homeowners who feel similarly - that the project has changed. He read a statement, and advised that the project has not provided a charter or mission statement, nor completed its plan as far as lighting, signs, proposed expansion, etc. The applicant has not cooperated with neighbors nor worked with the Department of Health. He requested that no building permit be issued until neighbors? concerns were satisfied. Mayor McArthur advised that as far as licensing a hospice, this would be done by the State, not City. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised that a State license is required to operate a hospice, not build one. Mr. Birbas requested that a 6' wall be built around his property for privacy. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised the Council is looking at the issue of requiring a wall or a berm. Alta Graham, representing the Ted Warthen Center, advised that she has been in contact with Mr. Birbas, who has made numerous demands. She advised that many of his allegations were unfounded, and she has been in contact with the State. She clarified that the Ted Warthen Center is a respite center, not a hospice, and will be based on a similar facility in South Carolina. The Center will be a residence which takes in guests, and will be manned by volunteers. Family members will not be staying overnight unless a guest is so terminal that he or she might pass away in the night. While it is true the City Council previously admonished her to work with the neighbors, she has tried to work with Mr. Birbas. She advised that Mr. Birbas was originally concerned about the trash receptacles, and she offered to place a wall around the trash area. The Center will be located more than a neighbor away from him, and is not a commercial use. She advised that Mr. Birbas had made many demands which she had not responded to and does not intend to. He wanted the Center to sell him property or buy his property. At this point, however, all she would like is a decision by the City Council if a wall or berm is needed. Council Member Gardner inquired how far away the Center was from Mr. Birbas? property, and was advised by Ms. Graham that there is 250' from the back of his property to the front of the Center. Ms. Graham advised there are no plans to build on the vacant property between the Center and Mr. Birbas. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised when the applicant originally made the request, a conditional use permit was required. However, if the use has now changed to a home for the disabled, a conditional use permit is not needed. Ms. Graham again stated that the Center is not a commercial operation and no money will change hands. It is a 501C3 organization which accepts donations and is staffed by volunteers. St. George City Council Minutes December 13, 2001 Page Eighteen Mr. Birbas advised that he contacted the respite home in North Carolina and they are now a school. He...

...o approve the conditional use permit based on the face that Mr. Hines will contact the Industrial Park association board. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested that the matter be tabled for two weeks. City Attorney Shawn Guzman commented that while recognizing what the City Council does is independent of what is done in the Ft. Pearce Industrial Park, if the association board denies the request, Mr. Hines can still request approval from the City Council. This may lead to possible civil litigation for Mr. Hines, and it would be best to first contact the association board. He clarified that what the City Council doe...

...n utility bills, and use an e-mail list to get the word out. She has also contacted larger commercial users such as PUDs. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that parks and golf courses are watered during the day with non-potable water as the City cannot water all of its facilities in the evening due to storage constraints. Ms. Fleming advised that Dixie State College also uses irrigation quality water to water during daylight hours. Council Member Gardner commented the focus should be on wise water use rather than conservation, as conservation has a negative connotation. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the resolution invoking Phase I of the Water Conservation Plan with the addition of some restrictions from Phase II which are time of day watering, no washing of hard surfaces, and use of automatic shut-offs on hoses if washing cars. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Gardner - aye Mayor Pro Tem Orton - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/PRELIMINARY PLAT: Public hearing to consider approval of a preliminary plat for Tonaquint Valley Phase 5 at 1100 West and 2200 South. Brett Burgess, Quality Development, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the project backs onto Curly Hollow Drive and is located across from the new schools in the Tonaquint Valley. Mayor Pro Tem Orton opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. Council Member Gardner inquired if the size of the subdivision was driven by impact fees. Jim Raines replied that limitations of the property drove the size of the project and not impact fees. Council Member Bunker inquired about the pedestrian access and if it connected with any walkways. Mr. Nicholson replied that the trail will connect with the proposed rock park. St. George City Council Minutes May 3, 2007 Page Five Mr. Raines advised that there were no rock outcroppings on this piece. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the plat. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/ORDINANCE/AMEND GENERAL PLAN: Public hearing to consider approval of an amendment to the City?s General Plan for the area referred to as the South Block. SITLA, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained this General Plan amendment was the result of 2.5 years of work between the City and SITLA. Charettes were held in May, 2005. This plan builds on the study Jeff Winston did about two years ago. The plan proposes a self-sufficient community comprised of residential, commercial, light industrial, mixed use, open space, endangered plant habitat, a transportation network, and a trail system. There are five residential neighborhoods with up to 13,000 dwelling units, translating to a population of 36,400. There are proposed sites for seven elementary schools, one intermediate, one middle, and one high school. There is also room for expansion of Dixie College. The main highways are the Southern Corridor and River Road arterials. The neighborhoods are higher density with smaller lots which help to provide affordable housing. There is a mixed use town center, 2,200 acres is in some form of park or open space and some is set aside for endangered plant habitat. He commended the effort SITLA has made to plan this area. It was presented to the Planning Commission on April 10 and the Planning Commission recommended approval. The applicants met with the Hillside Review Board on April 11 and they endorsed the concept in general, knowing any grading permit would come back to them for approval. One change was made yesterday to the plan, which was to add a road to extend to the I-15 frontage road through the industrial park across the Ft. Pierce Wash. Gary Wood, representing the applicant, advised the plan is the framework for land use. Zoning decisions would be made at some time in the future. The effort is the product of four years effort in all areas of development. He then presented a power point presentation with a vicinity map, master plan components comprising the South Block master plan, South Block network analysis and traffic study, infrastructure analysis of the South Block, technical studies and reports, acreage inventory, master plan components, open space and trail plans, and a roadway plan. He explained that the proposed road through the open space and valley northwest of Planning Area 1.7 should be preserved if needed in the future. He explained that the road into Little Valley has always been intended to extend over the wash. Council Member Gardner inquired if there was latitude for future expansion of the business park to the south. Mr. Wood replied that the plan provides for that. Small ridges will be used as buffers between the extension of the business park and residential neighborhoods. There are also business park locations along I-15 for corporate business use, and business park areas in the Atkinville Interchange area. In terms of employment, the South Block will have significantly more jobs than residents. There is also property around the airport for business park and employment uses. Council Member Bunker inquired why residential areas were being planned close to the freeway. Mr. Wood replied that in the final site plan these residential areas would be pulled back and would not be located right next to the freeway. Council Member Bunker inquired why the middle and high schools were located on the border with Arizona and so far south from most of the residential areas. Mr. Wood replied that various locations were considered, but because high schools are generally noisy with various activities taking place on the fields, they are not necessarily the greatest neighbors. 55 acres of ground was also needed. St. George City Council Minutes May 3, 2007 Page Six Council Member Bunker inquired how the natural rock outcroppings would be retained as open space for public access. Mr. Wood replied that they would be preserved, and maintenance of habitat preserves is being worked out now. Council Member Allen inquired if the small park along the Southern Corridor was large enough for a soccer or ballfield. Mr. Wood replied that it would be possible. There is a concentration of sports fields next to the I-15 in the original park south of the Atkinville Interchange. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested that if the City Council is inclined to approve the amendment, it be done subject to further review by the City?s traffic engineer as there are still some traffic issues to work out. Mayor Pro Tem Orton opened the public hearing. Ed Baca commented he was glad to see controlled growth and diversification, and he felt the applicant was doing a good job. There being no further public comment, Mayor Pro Tem Orton closed the public hearing. Assistant Director for SITLA, Ric McBrier, introduced his replacement, Doug Bushai. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the General Plan amendment by ordinance subject to review by the City?s traffic engineer. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Mayor Pro Tem Orton - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PRELIMINARY PLAT: Consider approval of the preliminary plat for The Flats at South Pointe located on 450 North at 2750 East. Linda Kirkpatrick, applicant. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the issue of traffic is important to the residents in the area. The developer has constraints as well. The City has a concurrency requirement in its master plan which requires that minimum standards be met. It also has plans and specifications which deal with levels of service and traffic trips, which says that no more traffic should be allowed on residential streets with 1250 trips per day or more. The street in question has over 2000 trips per day. The question is if the developer should be required to connect 450 North. She is offering to put in the section of 450 North that fronts her property and make another connection to a street. However, under the City?s policy of concurrency, it cannot allow any more traffic in that entire area. The City is not trying to exact or take properties from the applicant as it is willing to put in its portion of the street. He inquired where to draw the line and say that no more traffic will be allowed in the area. Council Member Gardner inquired if someone was able to make contact with the new owners of property on the west side to see if they would be willing to contribute to connection of 450 North. Mr. Esplin replied that the City Attorney tried but was unable to make contact. Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston advised that the City Attor...

...r the invocation at a City Council meeting was welcome to do so and should contact the City Recorder. Jon Pike introduced Russ Behrman, the new President of the Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Behrman advised that his previous experience included running the Better Business Bureau for the State of Utah. Mayor McArthur advised that Item 2F, to consider approval of a change order for engineering design of the water reuse facility, was tabled from the agenda. Mayor McArthur invited several Scouts in the audience to introduce themselves. Mayor McArthur announced that the FAA will be presenting the City with a check for the replacement airport at a kick-off on Monday, September 25 at 1:00 p.m. at the City?s hangar at the airport. He invited everyone to attend. Mayor McArthur advised that a ribbon cutting for St. George Blvd. will be held on Friday, September 29 at 7:30 a.m. in the Smith?s parking lot. AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid for engineering services to design a beginning project for the replacement airport. Purchasing Manager Connie Hood recommended an agreement be entered into with Creamer & Noble. Mayor McArthur explained that the project will consists of removing the old drag strip asphalt. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the site will also be secured. Council Member Whatcott inquired if this meant that the remote control airplane club could no longer use the runway. Mayor McArthur commented he thought the City would let them use the site for a longer period of time. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that if the City allows the remote control airplane club to use the site, it should not be securing the site. He commented that the City Council could wait another year if it wanted to and allow the existing operations to use the site. Mayor McArthur commented that the City should allow the public to use the site as long as it possibly can. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the agreement with Creamer and Noble. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. Council Member Bunker inquired if funds received from the FAA would cover the cost of the agreement. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that it would, except for the City?s match.

The cost of the system is $606,800, with removal at $58,935, for a total cost of $665,735.

ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance regulating rental units. City Attorney Shawn Guzman explained that the proposed ordinance amends the City?s current rental fit premises ordinance to require that anyone who has a rental in the City obtain a business license. This amendment has become necessary because some property owners are trying to circumvent the inspection process by listing the properties in names of different family members, or LLCs, etc. The City is not requiring inspection of one or two units owned by the same owner, but if it is observed that the landscaping is not being maintained, or there is another violation of the ordinance, then the City would have the right to inspect the premises. The ordinance applies to residential rentals only. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to approve the ordinance. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott.

All activities would be free to the public. A grant has been given by the Utah Humanities Council, and funds from the Utah State Library Board and Spectrum have been donated. The group requests City sponsorship and use of the Arts Building. It is hoped that next year it can be held at the Plaza.

Staff is concerned about where the match will come from and it will have to do a full financing plan on the entire project. It will not spend any finds until there is an agreement. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the grant. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. INTRODUCTION OF NEW STAFF: Community Development Director Bob Nicholson introduced new staff members John Willis, a new planner, and Clayton Lucas, who will be doing CDBG administration in addition to planning tasks. PRELIMINARY PLAT: Consider approval of the preliminary plat for Royal Pine Estates located on the west side of 3000 East at about 1190 South. Larry McEntire, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised that the public hearing for this plat was held and closed in May but action was tabled because of road issues. Since then a small strip adjacent to Royal Pine Estates has been re-zoned from A-1 to R-1-12 and the road issues have been resolved. There will not be any access off 3000 East. The project will tie into the Firenze Subdivision and Stone Valley Estates. Council Member Gardner commented that because access off 3000 East seems to be below the existing access which is the property boundary, he wondered if the property owners had been involved in the discussion. Jay Sandberg replied that no contact had been made other than through the public notice. Council Mem...


City Council Minutes 10/28/2004:
...to inspect and enforce violations. Council Member Allen suggested staff contact the City of Tempe AZ for information on how their rental ordinance is implemented. City Manager Esplin asked if the council wanted a minimum standard for appearance. Council Member Orton asked if there is a minimum standard in owner/occupied homes. City Manager Esplin commented the council will have to deal with the issue of minimum standards for owner/occupied homes if a minimum standard is set for rentals. Mr. Griffith encouraged the council to involve area property managers as they may be a valuable asset of information. Council Member Whatcott commented that the number of occupants in rental units has not been addressed. The group discussed the issue and whether it is being enforced. The group discussed the number of code enforcement officers needed to enforce some of those types of issues and requiring registration without a fee as a way of knowing what is going on with rental properties. City Attorney Guzman asked if the council wants to make a differentiation between owner/occupied homes with an apartment. Mayor McArthur indicated owner/occupied homes with an apartment should have an exemption as the property owners are able to keep an eye on the rental unit. NEW BUSINESS City Manager Esplin indicated Community Development Director Nicholson has raised a question that should come before the council regarding the Millcreek Industrial Park. Community Development Director Nicholson explained David Houser is a property owner in Millcreek Industrial Park. He distributed a letter describing what Mr. Houser would like to do with a vacant unit. He commented he doesn?t have a problem with this type of business in the park, but wanted to come to the council for a decision. City Manager Esplin indicated there have been problems in the park; however, the majority of activities in the businesses meet the zoning requirements. There is some incidental retail involved with Mr. Houser?s request, but other businesses have incidental retail. The group discussed the proposed location of the business which is in the vacant building that was a furniture store located near The Boulevard Furnishings store. Mr. Houser indicated the ordinance requires a non-see through fence; however, other businesses in the park have a chain link fence. White Cap, the proposed renter, has requested a secure fence, chain link is the best type of fencing and it will match the existing fencing. There was brief discussion regarding the fencing. DISCUSSION CONCERNING AN EMERGENCY OPERATIONS PLAN FOR THE CITY OF ST. GEORGE Chief Stratton indicated the emergency operation plan has recently been updated. The FTE has been working in on this response plan for the last 3 months. Sergeant Carlton has attended a lot of homeland security and bomb training sessions. There will be a mock exercise on Saturday morning. The group discussed how the Mayor and council will be notified in the event of an emergency. The emergency operation center will contact the appropriate City and County staff depending on the type of emer...

A motion was made by Councilmember Orton to approve an amendment to the Snow Canyon Water Project Interlocal Agreement as requested. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Isom, and all voted aye. ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance vacating Lots 8 and 9 from the plat of Anasazi Hills Subdivision Phase I at Entrada.

City Attorney Jonathan Wright explained he was instructed by the City Council to draft an amendment to the Home Occupations Ordinance which would allow bona fide home businesses to operate which are not currently allowed, such as a home internet business. He reviewed with the City Council the proposed provisions of the ordinance and explained enforcement will be on a complaint basis. City Council Minutes November 18, 1999 Page Four Councilmember Allen asked for a clarification of the prohibition against truck delivery to a home-based business.

He then reviewed the process by which complaints would be investigated. He explained the purpose of the amendment is to exclude home businesses that have negative effects on the neighborhoods while allowing other businesses not previously allowed under the existing ordinance. He then reviewed with the City Council the types of businesses which were excluded from obtaining a home occupation license. He advised that anyone who has concerns about whether or not their home business should be licensed should contact the City?s Business License Officer. Mr. Dixon, representing t...


City Council Minutes 07/09/2015:
... a couple of incidents with balloons trying to land near their home. They contacted the Police Department and an officer arrived. The officer told them to take up the issue with the City Council as there were no laws regarding hot air balloons. He then mentioned a recent article in The Spectrum. Their concerns are potential loss of property and life. He asked that a no-fly zone be adopted. Mayor Pike stated that there have also been issues with paragliders; staff can look into this. He announced that the City is going to do a thorough review of the St. George Golf Course. It has been noticed that there have been great improvements at the golf courses; however, this course needs to be looked at in terms of its viability as a golf course. For the sake of transparency, he wanted the public to know that this will be a public process and that no decisions have been made. Councilmember Arial stated that the golf courses have been an amazing thing for the City. They are the third economic driver for the County. She is pleased that the evaluation is being done. Mayor Pike mentioned that the City operates four of the twelve golf courses in the County. RESOLUTION/CURBSIDE RESIDENTIAL RECYCLING COLLECTION AGREEMENT: Consider approval of a Resolution approving the Curbside Residential Recycling Collection Agreement between the Washington County Special Service District No. 1 and Dixie Waste Services, and authorizing the execution of an Agreement between the Washington County Special Service District No. 1 and the City. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that the Mayor and Council have been closely involved with this project. He believes that a discussion needs to take place on the overall ideas St. George City Council Minutes July 9, 2015 Page Two and issues; therefore, he suggested postponing the item until all of the issues are resolved. Mayor Pike asked City Attorney Shawn Guzman to highlight the key points of the ordinance. City Attorney Shawn Guzman explained that staff is trying to fold the recycling component into the existing ordinance. Staff was directed to create an opt-out provision and that it goes with the customer, not with the land. Finance staff will have to keep track of those that opt-out. There are two agreements, one between the Solid Waste District and Dixie Waste and the other between the City and the Solid Waste District. The City was asked to approve both. They have some clarifications that they would like to discuss with the District. Faye Reber, representing the Solid Waste District, explained that they have until September 1 to adopt the ordinances; setting it on an agenda in August is fine. Mayor Pike commented that he wants the public to be aware that this is coming. Residents will be notified and the opt-out period will start no sooner than September 1st, giving them 60 days. The consensus of the Council is to have an opt-out option. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that prior to creating the ordinance, the Council needs to clarify their intent of opting out for residents who may move after opting out. Mr. Reber explained that the model ordinance addresses that concern. The District has talked about the ease of administration. The sample ordinance also seems to be more consistent as they want to go as a County, to encourage citizens to recycle. He realizes the concerns of the cities; they drafted the model knowing that each city would want to change the opt-out rules to better fit their own situation. Mayor Pike stated that anyone that is a new move in to the City, it would be a mandatory opt in program. The only people who get to choose to opt out are current residents. If they opt out and move, he asked if they should be treated as a new resident. Mr. Reber advised this is a five year contract. They anticipate combining recycling with regular waste pick up when they go out to bid in five years. Councilmember Almquist added, if a resident does not opt out in a certain time frame, they are in. Councilmember Arial asked if they opt out, can they opt in at any time. Mayor Pike replied yes. He added that the City would charge a flat $4 per month for collection. The agreement between the Solid Waste District and Dixie Waste is at $3.82 for the opt-out and the City would receive $.18 for administrative costs. If the County reaches 70% participation, the cost would go down to a total of $3.00 per month. Councilmember Randall stated that she is in favor of opt-out, and that the option goes with the individual as they move. She has confidence in staff that they can make this work. Councilmember Arial commented that she would like to give everyone an opportunity to make a decision to opt-in or opt-out. St. George City Council Minutes July 9, 2015 Page Three Councilmember Hughes agreed with Councilmember Arial. He stated that he believes the 70% participation can be reached. Recycling is not free, there is always a charge. This is a great start and will save space at the landfill. Councilmember Almquist commented that the opt-out option is good as well as the option staying with the person. He asked City Attorney Shawn Guzman to address if someone owns a house and opts-out but they rent their home to someone who wants to opt-in. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that it depends on who pays the utility bills. If the owner pays the bill and the renter wants to recycle, they will have to use the recycling bins. City Attorney Shawn Guzman noted that Administrative Services Director Deanna Brklacich and her staff have looked into this. He explained after October 31, 2015, if there are new renters who have never had a utility account with the City, they would be in the mandatory category. Councilmember Bowcutt commented that he believes the opt-out option should go with the person. Mayor Pike stated the City plans to proceed with the opt-out option staying with the person at a total cost of $4.00 per month. There will be a 60 day period in which residents can opt-out. Residents will be notified in a number of ways. Councilmember Almquist asked City Attorney Shawn Guzman to add a clause that enables the Council to review administrative costs as $.18 is fairly thin. City Attorney Shawn Guzman explained that the Council has the right to do that at any time; the proposed ordinance covers that. AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid for the annual purchase of rye grass for the City golf courses and ball fields. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that the recommendation is to purchase 69 tons of rye grass seed from Helena Chemical for the same cost as last year.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to award the bid for the annual purchase of rye grass to Helena Chemical. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bowcutt. VOTE: Mayor Pike called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Almquist – aye Councilmember Hughes – aye Councilmember Randall – aye Councilmember Bowcutt – aye Councilmember Arial – aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. St. George City Council Minutes July 9, 2015 Page Four AWARD OF BID: Consider approval of bid for improvements along the Sand Hollow Wash. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that this item is for the improvements along the Sand Hollow Wash for a cost of $492,173.90; the low bidder was Feller Enterprises. He outlined where the funds are coming from as follows: $89,733 from FEMA, $215,753 from the Washington County Flood Control Authority and the remainder from the budgeted City utility drainage fund. Councilmember Bowcutt inquired about a proposed trail in that area. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the trail will not be in that area as there is not enough room. Councilmember Almquist asked if there is a net removal of material. City Engineer Jay Sandberg replied yes, that is one of the reasons the bid is lower. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Arial to award the bid to Feller Enterprises for improvements along the Sand Hollow Wash at $492,173.90. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. VOTE: Mayor Pike called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Almquist – aye Councilmember Hughes – aye Councilmember Randall – aye Councilmember Bowcutt – aye Councilmember Arial – aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. FEE WAIVER/ROAD CLOSURE: Consider approval of a request to close St. James and Lizzie Lane and a fee waiver for the Chelsi’s Run event. Lisa Peterson, applicant. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that the previously proposed ordinance is not in place for staff to approve this request; therefore it needs to be approved by the Council. This event has taken place for a number of years. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Randall to approve the fee waiver and road closure. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. VOTE: Mayor Pike called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Almquist – aye Councilmember Hughes – aye Councilmember Randall – aye Councilmember Bowcutt – aye Councilmember Arial – aye St. George City Council Minutes July 9, 2015 Page Five The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/PROPOSED BOUNDARY LINE ADJUSTMENT/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to take public comment on the proposed boundary line adjustment between the City of St. George and Santa Clara City located on the northeast corner of the intersection of Lava Cove Drive and Little League Drive, west of the existing Canyon Terrace Estates Phase 7, and north of the Snow Canyon High School football field. Kent Frei, applicant. Planning & Zoning Manager John Willis presented the request for a boundary line between the City and Santa Clara City. The Council passed a resolution of intent on April 2, 2015. State law requires a public hearing be held not less than 60 days after the resolution has been approved. The applicant has requested to modify the boundary to the east. He presented an aerial view of the area; a map of the proposed boundary line adjustment; and photos of the hill. He explained that an ordinance will have to be approved and that there are drainage concerns. Bob Hermandson with Bush & Gudgell, representing the applicant, explained that the original design for the subdivision split the water in both cities. After hearing the comments, they redesigned the plan and everything will be running back to Santa Clara down. He showed on the map where the water will drain and explained that the drainage plan was submitted to Santa Clara City. Councilmember Bowcutt commented that he looked at the area today. He asked if the plan is to connect the two roads. Mr. Hermandson explained how the roads will connect and stated that there will be houses on both sides. Councilmember Bowcutt stated that he is concerned that once housing is developed in the area it will take away the absorption factor when it rains and complicate the situation on the lower road as they get flooded now. Mr. Hermandson stated that most of the homes along the top of the ridgeline will be walk-out basements. He explained that Santa Clara had them put a drainage system on the back of each lot. The water will be maintained with a storm drain pipe in the back yard that will connect to the rest of the storm drain system. Mayor Pike opened the public hearing. There being no comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Almquist to approve the ordinance regarding the boundary line adjustment between the City of St. George and Santa Clara City. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Arial. Councilmember Bowcutt commented that even though how the drainage will work was addressed, it does not bind Santa Clara. The Council will not see the plans because it will be approved by the Santa Clara City Council. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that if they do not take care of the drainage, the City has recourse to fight Santa Clara as the neighborhood needs to be protected. Staff will need to see the plans and watch what is going on.

PUBLIC HEARING/PD-R ZONE AMENDMENT/ORDIANCE: Public hearing to consider an amendment to the PD-R (Planned Development Residential) zone to construct a four-story condominium project on approximately 5.7 acres located at 1151 South Plantations Drive. Capital 5 LLC, applicant. Planning and Zoning Manager John Willis explained that this item was tabled at the last City Council meeting due to issues with a portion of the property. It is a request for a zone change amendment to construct a four-story condominium project on approximately 5.7 acres located 1151 South Plantations Drive. The applicant is proposing to amend their site plan, reducing the number of buildings from four to three. He presented maps of the property and a landscape plan previously approved. The applicant is also requesting an increase in the height of the buildings to four stories and to expand the footprint. He outlined the proposed height changes. The Planning Commission recommended approval with conditions regarding parking. If the parking lot is changed, the applicant must come before the Planning Commission and City Council for approval. He explained that there was an agreement between the applicant and the Lakes at St. George that the area lot to the north would remain a landscaped area. Because the applicant proposed to build a parking lot, the Lakes at St. George submitted a letter objected to the agreement. Since then the applicant and the representatives from the Lakes at St. George have come to an agreement. He then presented an elevation and photos of the area. Dave Nasal, applicant, explained that the current building is three stories. The first building sits ten and a half and twelve and a half feet higher than the next two phases. They are proposing the second and third phase buildings are four stories all the way across. He stated that the parking issue has been resolved was submitted to the City and has been recorded. Mayor Pike opened the public hearing. Kendall Clements, citizen, stated that the four foot story would be a good addition. Ed Baca, citizen, mentioned an apartment complex that was approved a number of years ago and an office building that was approved on the west side. He stated that there are concerns about the possibility of increased density, the height and traffic. Councilmember Randall pointed out that it is interesting that the citizens who contact Mr. Baca do not contact the Mayor or Council. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that no o...

A motion was made by Council Member Allen and the seconded by Council Member Orton to award a blanket purchase order to Xtreme Edge Screen Printing and Mega Pro Screen Printing in the amount of $50,000 each for the year. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Gardner - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. Consider award of a blanket purchase contract for garment laundry service for various City divisions. Purchasing Agent Sue Swensen presented two bids received (please see Exhibit "B" attached hereto). She explained that she had staff members who use this service send letters stating how they felt about the current service with American Linen. Half of the staff members recommended staying with American Linen and the other half recommended trying Unifirst. She recommended setting up contracts with both. Council Member Orton inquired if the bidders were aware of staff's recommendation to split the award of bid between the two, as the bid read all or none. Ms. Swensen replied that they were not. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that staff will contact them and ask them. Council Member Orton recommended they be...

...ember Orton to approve purchase of seven police vehicles through the State contact with Butterfield Ford in the total amount of $144,305. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen, and all voted aye. BID OPENING: Consider purchase of a ten wheel dump truck under the State contract. Purchasing Agent Sue Swensen recommended purchase of a ten wheel dump truck through the State contract with Lake City International Trucks in the amount of $90,417. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the dump truck would be used primarily by the Streets Department, but would be shared with other departments as needed. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve purchase of a ten wheel dump truck through the State contract with Lake City International Trucks in the amount of $90,417. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott, and all voted aye. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the State bids certain items annually throughout the entire state and then makes these items available to local communities at the bid price. The City?s ordinance provides that if City Council Minutes August 19, 1999 Page Three a local vendor can meet the price within 5%, the bid will be awarded to the local vendor. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution in support of the proposed new airport location. Jay Ence, spearheading a committee supporting the new airport, requested that Mayor Pro Tem Isom sign a resolution supporting Site 1 and 1A for the new replacement airport. Mr. Ence advised that all other neighboring communities have signed a similar resolution except Washington City, and negotiations are ongoing. City Manager Gary Esplin read the resolution. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve the resolution as submitted. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Orton. A roll call vote was taken and all voted aye. Mr. Ence thanked committee members Hal Leeward, Ralph McClure, Denny Drake, Colin Harris, Dick Stout, James Smith, Quentin Ence, Lee Bracken, Brent Lowe, and Jim Eardley for their participation. SET PUBLIC HEARING: Associate Planner Jim McGuire advised the Planning Commission, at its meeting of August 10, 1999, recommended a public hearing be set to consider amendments to Chapter 10 of the Zoning Ordinance. A motion was made by Councilmember Allen to set a public hearing on September 23, 1999 at 5:00 p.m. to consider amendments to the Zoning Ordinance. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Orton, and all voted aye. REQUEST FOR CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit for an office building to exceed the height limitation in the ordinance to 45.8 feet on a building at 400 West between 200 and 300 South. Larry Belliston, applicant. Associate Planner Jim McGuire presented two site elevations and clarified that the applicant?s preferred request is for a height of 45.8', not 48.5' as advertised on the agenda. The site is located in a C-3 zone between Bluff Street and 400 West and between 200 and 300 South. The height of the building from the finished floor grade to the peak along the 400 West side of the building is 52 feet, but because the grade can be calculated by averaging the elevations of Bluff Street, 400 West, and 200 South at the centers of the walls that face those streets, the height, by definition, is 45.8 feet. However, there are homes on the opposite side of 400 West that will be exposed to a building they see as being 52' tall. The applicant felt that the residents would rather see a taller building with a smaller footprint than a building meeting the height requirement and taking up more ground. The majority of the Planning Commission agreed with the applicant and recommended approval on a 6-1 vote. Mr. McGuire advised that at the request of the Planning Commission, City staff is currently formulating a recommendation for an amendment to the ordinance which would increase the height limit. Councilmember Orton inquired if the City Council had ever denied a request for a height variance, and Mr. McGuire responded that it had not, and that each request was different and had been examined on its own merits. City Council Minutes August 19, 1999 Page Four Councilmember Whatcott commented that the ordinance should be adhered to or changed. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson stated that the Planning Commission will consider the amendment at its first meeting in September, with presentation to the City Council in October. He explained that the draft amendment will include a provision for an increased setback, outdoor plaza, or other amenity in exchange for the variance. Councilmember Allen inquired if any neighbors had expressed opposition to the project, and Mr. McGuire replied that no objections had been received. He clarified that the request is not for a variance, but for a conditional use permit as allowed by ordinance. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that it would be difficult, given the City?s past history of granting height variance requests, to deny this request unless some special circumstance could be shown. Councilmember Gardner expressed concern about how the proposed four story building would blend in with the neighborhood, and Mr. McGuire replied that the applicant had provided two options in response to that concern. However, the four story building would provide more open space on the property. Councilmember Orton suggested the matter be tabled until a site visit could be made. Councilmember Gardner concurred with this suggestion. Mayor Pro Tem Isom stated that if this request were going to be tabled, the following request from Mr. Clayton should also be postponed, but Mr. Clayton should be afforded an opportunity at this meeting to present his plan. A motion was made by Councilmember Orton to table any action until a site visit could be made on August 26 at 4:00 p.m. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner, and all voted aye. Mayor Pro Tem Isom advised the meeting on August 26 would be a special City Council meeting so that formal action could be taken. REQUEST FOR CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit for an office building to exceed the height requirement in the ordinance to 51 feet for a building on the southeast corner of 600 South Bluff. Vince Clayton, applicant. Associate Planner Jim McGuire advised the applicant is requesting a conditional use permit for an office building to exceed the 35 foot height limit to 51 feet. The site is located in a C-3 zone at the southeast corner of Bluff Street and 600 South. The height of the building from the finished floor grade to the top of the building is 52 feet, but the height from the sidewalk grade (averaged between the two streets) is 51 feet. The site is nearly level at the street grades compared to the previous request discussed above. It is also a larger site with a parking lot on the east side of the building, putting some distance between the building and the homes on the adjacent property. There is a commercial building on the opposite side of 600 South. The Planning Commission recommended approval on a 6-1 vote, with one Commissioner stepping down because of a conflict. The applicant, Vince Clayton representing Ence Construction, advised the proposed building will be back-dropped against the Black Hill and the height would be lost against an area that may or may not be developed. The property to the south is zoned C-3. He explained the proposed building has City Council Minutes August 19, 1999 Page Five various levels with the bottom level being smaller than the upper two levels, and supported by columns which will give spacial relief to the building. A plaza is also being proposed as part of the project. Councilmember Gardner complimented Mr. Clayton on the design of the building. He commented that in fairness to the previous applicant?s request, and in fairness to the height provision of the ordinance, the issue should be tabled until the site visit could be made on August 26, and he made a motion to such effect. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Orton, and all voted aye. CONTINUATION OF REQUEST FOR CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT. LARRY BELLISTON, APPLICANT: Larry Belliston arrived. Mr. Belliston explained that his building is really 7' below Bluff Street, and is not a high profile building as there are eight trees on the property which will be higher than the building. He explained the reason he requested approval of the four story option is to better utilize the site and provide for a smaller building which would not obstruct any views. REQUEST FOR A CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit for a home for the care of up to five elderly persons at 2555 East 3580 South. Edith Porter, applicant. Associate Planner Jim McGuire advised the proposed location is within an A-1 zone, and there is adequate room for guest and care provider parking. No objections to the proposal have been received. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Orton, and all voted aye. APPROVAL OF PRELIMINARY PLAT: Associate Planner Jim McGuire advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held August 10, 1999, recommended approval of the preliminary plat for Plum Tree Hollow Townhomes located in a PD zone between Mall Drive and the Middleton Wash south of the LDS Church. Craig Hopkinson is the applicant. The preliminary plat conforms to the PD which was recently approved. A motion was made by Councilmember Whatcott to approve the preliminary plat. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner, and all voted aye. REVIEW OF INDIAN HILLS TOWNHOMES/APARTMENTS: Associate Planner Jim McGuire advised that the City?s ordinance was recently amended to allow changes to a subdivision plat even if they did not conform to the ordinance if they were an improvement to the project. The Indian Hills Townhomes/Apartments project is nearing completion and staff petitioned the Planning Commission to consider if the improvements made to the project are in conformance with what was represented when the final plat amendment was granted to the applicant, Avery Knapp. The Planning Commission forwarded this item to the City Council with the comment that the units do not look as represented when the amended plat was approved. The applicant has assured staff that wrought iron balconies will be added, as well as balcony facades for the back unit to better blend the two different building styles. The applicant proposes to complete these improvements within 30 days from August 19, 1999, and will post a cash bond of $750 to assure completion. He will also post an additional cash bond of $2,000 to replace trees which do not survive within 60 days. The applicant has agreed to plant several 15 gallon trees to beautify the project. City Council Minutes August 19, 1999 Page Six Avery Knapp explained it is his impression City staff is not opposed to the project if the proposed improvements are made. He explained that the project has been downsized in order to provide for large grassy areas which have been planted to enhance the project and to address complaints from the community. He advised that 22 15-gallon trees and 10 5-gallon oleanders will also be planted at the suggestion of staff. Councilmember Gardner commented that if the project now meets the criteria in City ordinance, the applicant should be allowed to proceed with the project, and he made a motion to such effect, and to authorize the Mayor to sign the final plat. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott, who inquired if staff was comfortable with the changes. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson responded that staff was comfortable with the changes. A vote was taken and all voted aye. INTRODUCTION OF BOY SCOUT: Mayor Pro Tem Isom invited a Boy Scout to introduce himself. PUBLIC HEARING/ORDINANCE FOR ZONE CHANGE: Public hearing to consider a request for a zone change from A-20 (20 acre minimum lot size) to A-1 (40,000 sq. ft. minimum lot size) on 7.26 acres located on the east side of Little Valley Road, south of Seegmiller Drive. Troy and Stephanie Atkin, applicants. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the General Plan shows the site as future low density residential. The property is surrounded by A-1, with some RE-20 located across the street. The Planning Commission recommended approval. Mayor Pro Tem Isom opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, she closed the public hearing. Troy Atkin commented the property in question is an old feed lot on which they would like to build a home. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve by ordinance a zone change from A-20 to A-1 for 7.26 acres located on the east side of Little Valley Road south of Seegmiller Drive. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott. A roll call vote was taken and all voted aye. PUBLIC HEARING/ORDINANCE FOR AMENDMENT TO ZONING ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider amendment to the Zoning Ordinance to add criteria for a residential facility for persons with a disability. City of St. George, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained the purpose of this amendment is to bring the City?s Zoning Ordinance into compliance with U.C.A. 10-9-605 and to avoid discrimination in housing. Approximately 18 months ago State law was changed to permit dwellings for persons with a disability in any zone which allows a dwelling. At present the City?s ordinance requires a conditional use permit. He then reviewed with the City Council the various requirements and exceptions. The Planning Commission recommended approval. Mayor Pro Tem opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, she closed the public hearing. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve by ordinance amendments to the Zoning Ordinance to add criteria for a residential facility for persons with a disability. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen. A roll call vote was taken and all voted aye. City Council Minutes August 19, 1999 Page Seven REQUEST FOR DEFERRAL OF IMPACT FEES: Consider a request for deferral of impact fees for a duplex to be owned by the St. George Housing Authority. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the City?s Affordable Housing Program allows for yearly deferrals of impact fees for 60 affordable housing units. 51 have been used so far in 1999, and the St. George Housing Authority is requesting deferral of impact fees for a duplex they will be purchasing through a Community Block Grant program. A motion was made by Councilmember Whatcott to approve deferral of impact fees for two units for the St. George Housing Authority. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Orton, and all voted aye. REQUEST FOR DEFERRAL OF IMPACT FEES: Request a request for deferral of impact fees for an affordable housing project. Dave Adams, applicant. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that Dave Adams, Adams Construction, is requesting the remaining seven impact fee deferrals available for 1999 under the City?s Affordable Housing Project for an affordable housing project he is constructing in the area of the River Palms development along Riverside Drive. No other applications for deferrals have been received by the City. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve deferral of impact fees for seven units of affordable housing for Dave Adams. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Orton, and all voted aye. APPROVAL OF CONTRACT TO RENOVATE ART CENTER BASEMENT: Consider approval of a contract for design of the basement renovation for the Community Arts Building. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the proposed contact with Campbell & Association is for renovation and stabilization of ...


City Council Minutes 04/08/2004:
...ter be postponed until later in the meeting to give the contractor time to contact the City. APPROVAL OF CHANGE ORDER: Consider approval of a change order for installation of reuse pipe on Dixie Drive. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the City is installing reuse line to take reuse water to the Shivwits Reservation. Costs include $155,000 for Western Rock, and $224,000 for the section by the bridge. A change order with the existing developers is recommended. The price has been confirmed to conform with the price if bid out. Approval is recommended. Funds from the Sewer Fund will be used and then reimbursed by $15 million from the federal government to extend the reuse line to the Reservation. Final environmental clearance for the project is anticipated by summer, with the entire line hopefully done by fall. A motion was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Allen to approve the change order. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch explained that with regard to the reuse work to be installed on Dixie Drive adjacent to the Santa Clara River bridge, the original quote given by the contractor was $432,000, but this did not include the reuse work just approved. The contractor would like 90 extra days to do the work indicated. It is critical that the project be completed by the end of June, and staff asked him for a proposal. He indicates he would have to work extra hours, 60 hour weeks, and on Saturdays. By doing this the bridge could be opened. There would be some incidental work done under the bridge and along the shoulders which would not interfere with traffic. He is just now adding up labor hours to determine the extra cost and staff is waiting for his phone call. Staff recommends that some arrangements be made and the contract not be open-ended because there would be no enforcement power. Terms would need to be defined so that the contractor understands the City expects him to move the work along, and as long as he was doing that, penalty provisions would not be enforced. The next bidder for the project was $400,000 higher. REPORT ON SPRING BREAK Chief Stratton reported that the City will have help from the Utah Highway Patrol, Dixie College and the Sheriff?s Office. He stated he hoped the kids had a good time while they were here and then travel home safely. ADJOURN TO CONFERENCE ROOM: The meeting then adjourned to the conference room. REVIEW OF GENERAL PLAN: Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained the purpose of the General Plan and advised that the City has a policy to update it every five years. Property owners can apply for an amendment to the plan quarterly. The two main issues to consider in the General Plan are (1) is the General Plan the way the City Council wants it to be by showing land uses and densities, and (2) is the zoning the way the City Council wants it to be, particularly as applied to vacant property. The east St. George area was then discussed where zoning conflicted with General Plan designations. CHANGE ORDER FOR IMPROVEMENTS ON DIXIE DRIVE ADJACENT TO THE SANTA CLARA RIVER BRIDGE (CONTINUED): Public Works Director Larry Bulloch advised that the contractor is willing to accept a change order in an amount not to exceed $65,500 for the additional work as previously discussed. This would be in addition to the $432,000 for the original portion of the project. The $65,500 figure does not include any extra engineering or overtime work. While the timeline of July 1 will be difficult to meet, the contractor is willing to put in overtime and do what he can to meet the deadline. If there are any glitches, however, the project will probably go over the timeline, and for this reason the contractor asked that the penalty provisions of the contract be waived. City staff is still negotiating with him, and proposed that the penalty St. George City Council Minutes April 8, 2004 Page Three provisions be moved to July 31. The contractor advised that he is not sure he will accept this date, but he will think about it. A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the 45 day proposal with liquidated damages so the deadline could be met. The motion died for lack of a second. Mayor McArthur inquired if the waterline was included in this project. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that the water line would be done independent of this project. Council Member Gardner made a motion to approve the change order, moving the completion date to the end of July, with liquidated damages not to exceed $65,500, and with a bridge opening date of July 1. The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. DISCUSSION RE LANDSCAPING IMPROVEMENTS ON ST. GEORGE BLVD: Marc Mortensen, Assistant to the City Manager, presented renderings of the proposed landscaping plan. Kurt Gumbrecht, explained that with regard to the height of the medians, the City has two choices. It can have a low curb but be limited to a 4" or smaller caliper tree, or an 18" barrier curb with larger trees. He recommended the 18" barrier curb which would act as a planter, and then presented his designs. A lighting plan was also presented. DISCUSSION WITH PLANNER ON DOWNTOWN CHARRETTE: City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the City has retained Brad Houston for the downtown charrette process. Brad Houston explained that the charrette process is an intense design process, lasting anywhere from a day or two to a week. A charrette allows him as a designer to gather as much information as possible on the people who use the streets within the target area, and the more people involved the better. The process allows the community to feel that their voice is being heard, and from a political standpoint is a good opportunity for input. A charrette will identify what jobs are in the area, where the people walk, what time they walk, what is currently in the area that they love and what is not. This will help the City to recruit businesses that the people want and will use, and will identify what the people want those businesses to look like. He then exhibited the results of a charrette done for BYU. City Manager Gary Esplin clarified that the City would like to broaden the charrette outside the immediate area so that anyone in the City who wants can comment. Council Member Orton commented that design standards are needed for the downtown area. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson replied that the City currently has some design guidelines for the historic district. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that there is a difference between guidelines and an ordinance which can be enforced. Carol Sapp recommended that the City not move ahead without a buy-in from those who utilize the businesses in the downtown area, and commented that the charrette process is a great idea to get the whole community behind the project and stimulate interest in the downtown area. Council Member Whatcott was excused from the meeting. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that it would be difficult to set a design standard different from the historical concept already present in the downtown area, and it would be important to not detract from what has already been done. St. George City Council Minutes April 8, 2004 Page Four Mr. Houston commented that a drawing or visual interpretation would result from the charrette to help avoid confusion. He advised that the charrette could probably be held within a two day period of six hours each day. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that Mr. Houston would work with Marc Mortensen and Bob Nicholson to come up with a date for the charrette. APPOINTMENT: Mayor McArthur recommended that Fred Page be appointed to the Dinosaur Track Site Advisory Committee to replace Marshall Topham who was appointed at the last meeting. Mr. Topham was recently appointed to the Dinosaur Foundation. A motion was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Allen to appoint Fred Page to the Dinosaur Track Site Advisory Committee. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. MISCELLANEOUS: Mayor McArthur advised that he is going to declare May as Utah Foster Care Month to raise awareness in the area about the need for foster families. He inquired about the possibility of including a flyer in the utility bills. The Utah Foster Care Foundation would also like to tie blue ribbons in the trees at the Bluff Street Park and place 150 small blue landscaping flags in the landscaping at the City Office. -------- Mayor McArthur advised that the Heritage Choir is in need of a building to hold their practices. Council Member Bunker commented that with the opening of the new Fine Arts Building at Dixie College, perhaps an arrangement could be made to use the Cox Auditorium. Mayor McArthur commented he would provide her name to Floyd Rigby as a contact. -------- Marc Mortensen, Assistant to the City Manager, advi...

City Attorney Wright commented he felt confident he could obtain the needed records from Clear Vision Cable. Mayor McArthur suggested this item be scheduled on the next City Council agenda. A motion was made by Councilmember Isom to approve the resolution. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen. A roll call vote was taken and all voted aye.

A roll call vote was taken and all voted aye, motion carried. Report from meeting held with interested parties regarding the completion of the Centennial Park in the area of Panorama Elementary and Pine View Middle School. Kent Perkins, Leisure Services Director reports that at the July 22nd City Council meeting he was directed to deal with issues concerning Centennial Park. On July 26, a request for culinary water was approved by the Water Dept. On July 28th Lynne Scott, Parks Superintendent, signed a contract with Alpha Engineering for design engineering services for this site. Prior to the meeting on the 29th, Mr. Joe Collett contacted Lynne Scott and Kent Perkins about a proposal he had relative to his horned toad study center. He asked permission from Lynne Scott if he could attend the July 29th meeting and make a presentation. He also met with a number of City officials including the Mayor, Gary Esplin, school district officials, and with a number of residents and school principals. Prior to the July 29th meeting Lynne Scott, Mayor McArthur, Superintendent Granger, Principal Brooks, Principal Cottam, met to ascertain the support from the School District and they discussed a number of issues at that time. At the July 29th meeting approximately 25 - 27 people were in attendance, including area residents, PTA officials, Principal Cottam, Mayor McArthur, Marc Mortensen, Superintendent Granger, Principal Topham, Lynne Scott, Bill Jackson, Joe Collett, a professor from Southern Utah University, and Judy Flowers from the Grand Canyon Trust. At this meeting a number of things were discussed. Lynne Scott and Mayor McArthur made presentations relative to the historical perspective with water, timing, and different issues. Mr. Collett made a presentation along with the professor from SUU and Pine View Principal Topham relative to the horned toad study area proposal. A number of questions were asked from the audience and number of things were discussed. Principal Cottam and Superintendent Granger spoke and addressed the school point of view and the fact that they would seek for compromise to be considered, that we look at the potential for educational use of the facility along with park development. Kent Perkins then spoke to the group and requested input relative to what we thought are important factors that had to be in this particular area. He identified 9 areas, those 9 areas are visibility, water conservation, amphitheater, restrooms, pavilions, tables, barbecues, discovery play area for tots, trails, and nature study area. Votes were taken on each of those areas, we then committed to the following, 1. remove park sign that was on the site, 2. assist with community citizens to clean up area, 3. help clean up this area, 4. asked the residents to consider the park in the context of the entire site, including the area behind the schools and we reminded them of the commitment that we one made with them that once we had a good water site, we would go in and renovate that site and turn it into a decent park. We would renovate the turf, plant trees and make it a decent facility in the front and well as the back. Lynne made contact, relative to the cleaning of the site, the day after the meeting st...

... office will be maintained for record keeping and for guests and others to contact when necessary. The historic pecan trees will be saved. City Attorney Shawn Guzman expressed concern that one way of keeping these guest inns from turning into de facto apartments is through daily cleaning. He proposed that the rooms be required to be cleaned at least six out of the seven days they are occupied. If the rooms are not going to be cleaned or if an extra fee is not charged, he expressed concern that they it would turn into a 29 day apartment. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that apartment use would be a violation of the conditional use permit. Council Member Whatcott commented that renting the room for a week and having a cleaning service in there every day would defeat the applicant?s purpose. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised that any time there is a change of guest, the room would have to be cleaned. Council Member Whatcott suggested that a stipulation be required that the room has to be cleaned on a weekly basis at a minimum and upon the change of a guest. Mr. Madsen, applicant, advised that this requirement made sense. City Manager Gary Esplin inquired what would happen if the use changes, and inquired if a stipulation could be added that if the use changes, it would have to go back to the City Council for approval. Mr. Madsen commented that the Planning Commission agreed that if the proposed use did not go through, the home could be used as office space. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson commented that the Planning Commission never acted on that, even though it was part of the discussion. City Attorney Shawn Guzman commented that office use is in harmony with what the City Council has approved in the past in similar homes, so securing approval for an office use should not be a problem. Mayor Pro Tem Orton commented that the applicant would still have to come back to the City Council for approval of an office use. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the conditional use permit subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission, that the rooms must be cleaned at least weekly and upon change of a guest, and an office use is OK. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that there are parking issues, and the City Council may want to review those before giving a blanket approval. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott. St. George City Council Minutes June 7, 2007 Page Ten VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/PRELIMINARY PLAT: Public hearing to consider approval of a preliminary plat for Netta?s Knoll Condominiums on 32.89 acres located at the southeast corner of the Riverside Drive and Foremaster Drive intersection. Craig Hopkinson, applicant. Jay Sandberg explained that this project is a PD and was approved in March 2006. A hillside development permit is also required. The Hillside Board approved the permit, but it was advertised incorrectly for the Planning Commission meeting, so it will be coming back at a later date as a separate item. The approved roads have been reconfigured slightly because of clay and the buildings were repositioned to avoid clay areas. As an end result, the roads are now more or less on the outside. The original PD approval had 11 buildings and this layout has 13. The original PD had four story buildings, but this was not approved by the City Council, and the applicant has reduced them to three stories. The traffic study recommends 25% participation in a signal which is now under design. The applicants are also required to widen Riverside Drive where Foremaster Drive comes in and to put in a right turn deceleration lane into the project and a right turn deceleration lane on Foremaster Drive with two lanes in each direction. These improvements will be made with this project because of its impact on the road system in the area. There is also a City trail along the toe of the hill. The property owners have given permission to build the trail and the City has been working on getting the easements signed. Council Member Whatcott commented there appeared to be only one access in and out. Jay Sandberg replied that this was because of the topography of the site. However the access is wide and will eventually have a signal. The project will be built in phases, and the first phase will complete the road work. There will be a loop road all the way through the project for good circulation. The center part of the project is the first phase. Blue clay issues have been addressed. Council Member Bunker commented that the garages appeared to be more prominent than in the original project and on the periphery of the project. Mr. Sandberg replied that the property slopes down and covers the garages in that area. Someone would have to be on Foremaster Ridge to see them; they are not visible from the road. Craig Hopkinson, applicant explained that the original PD was approved with the requirement to use a landscape architect for the project. He requested permission to use Larry Reber who is not a landscape architect, but is a landscape planner. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that this was a determination for the City Council to make, but there is no requirement in the ordinance for a landscape architect. He felt the City Council just wanted to be satisfied the landscaper had the necessary qualifications because of the soil conditions. Council Member Gardner commented he was comfortable with Mr. Reber as long as the conditions are dealt with. Mr. Hopkinson explained that the renderings show that the back of the garages are being used as retaining walls and this will mitigate their view from almost any direction. Council Member Bunker commented her main concern was that they could be seen from Riverside Drive or major arterials. Council Member Whatcott inquired about the color of the garages. Mr. Hopkinson replied that they will be colored the same as the buildings and he will try and make them blend into the hillside with dirt colors as close as possible. Mayor Pro Tem Orton opened the public hearing. St. George City Council Minutes June 7, 2007 Page Eleven Ed Baca inquired during which phase the traffic signal would be installed. Jay Sandberg replied that the only requirement is that the applicant participate in a future signal. It is under design now. There is no requirement that the signal be installed prior to the project, but it will probably be close. There being no further public comment, Mayor Pro Tem Orton closed the public hearing. Council Member Whatcott inquired if Riverside Drive would be widened at the same time the signal is put in. Mr. Sandberg replied that this was correct. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the plat subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Orton called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/CITY CODE AMENDMENT/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider approval of an amendment to Title 10, Chapter 8, St. George City Code, to add a provision allowing the City Council to approve densities in excess of the General Plan in certain circumstances. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised that the purpose of the General Plan is to be a guide for development. PD language says that density in a PD zone shall conform to density limitations in the General Plan. He reviewed the proposed ordinance. He stated the reason for the change is to try and put some flexibility into the process by allowing the City Council to look at site specific situations and approve a project with a density higher than the General Plan allows, if certain conditions are met. The Planning Commission recommends approval. Council Member Bunker inquired if passage of this ordinance would allow the RCC zone to remain in place and not provide a loophole for some of the properties. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that the City Council would have to approve each request for increased density. Council Member Bunker inquired if this ordinance was taking away some of the guidelines for the RCC zone. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that the RCC zone already has provisions which allow the City Council to consider higher densities. The proposed change gives more flexibility to the City Council to add to projects that make sense but which are different from the General Plan. It would not make a difference to the RCC application concept. The application would still have to go through a hearing process, but it negates the City having to amend the General Plan every time a credible project comes in. Mr. Nicholson commented that in the RCC zone, conditional use permits can be obtained to do a multi-family project or one with higher density. In the PD zone there are no conditional use permits - the applicant would have to bring the plan to the City Council for approval. Mayor Pro Tem Orton opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the ordinance. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor Pro Tem Ortion called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye St. George City Council Minutes June 7, 2007 Page Twelve Mayor Pro Tem Orton - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/AMEND CITY CODE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider approval of an amendment to Title 10, Chapter 18, to modify certain provisions dealing with walls and fences. Planner John Willis explained that staff proposes the changes in order to clarify unclear language and resolve some issues. He reviewed the proposed ordinance. The Planning Commission recommends approval. Project Engineer Cathy Hasfurther clarified some conditions with regard to setbacks and retaining walls. Mayor Pro Tem Orton opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to approve the ordinance. Encroachment Officer Brad Young explained that the ordinance clarifies certain conditions with regard to corner lots. He advised staff would contact masons and block manufacturing companies and explain the new ordina...

... civic project. They are currently raising funds for the project and will contact local businesses and subcontractors to try and reduce the cost of construction. A motion to award the bid to the low bidder, Stapp Construction, in the amount of $227,106 was made by Councilmember Orton and seconded by Councilmember Allen, who inquired about the completion date for the project. Ms. Scott replied the skate park would be completed by mid-July. Mayor Pro Tem Isom called for a vote, as follows: St. George City Council Minutes April 5, 2001 Page Two Councilmember Gardner - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Whatcott - aye Mayor Pro Tem Isom did not vote. The motion passed. AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid for construction of the Sand Hollow Wash trail project. City Manager Gary Esplin presented five bids received: Progressive Contracting $118,119.95 Sunroc Corp, Inc. $128,945.75 L&M General Engineering & Construction $132,642.25 A-T Asphalt Paving $148,426.20 Merrick Young, Inc. $179,100 City Manager Gary Esplin explained this portion of trail included the area from the Sand Hollow Aquatic Center north to 1800 North, and will eventually tie into the Canyons Complex when development occurs. He explained that Progressive Contracting made a mistake in their bid, and their actual bid is $116,719.95. Staff recommends award of the bid to the low bidder, Progressive Contracting, in the amount of $116,719.95. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to award the bid to the low bidder, Progressive Contracting, in the amount of $116,719.95. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott. Mayor Pro Tem Isom called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Whatcott - aye Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Gardner - aye Mayor Pro Tem Isom did not vote. The motion carried. HORSE CROSSING: Councilmember Allen advised she had been contacted by citizens requesting that a horse crossing sign be placed on Snow Canyon Parkway so horseback riders could access the desert reserve. Parks Superintendent Lynne Scott advised she would contact them to determine the location requested. AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid for the annual slurry seal project. City Manager Gary Esplin presented three bids received: CPM West $82,310.23 Intermountain Slurry Seal $70,970 Morgan Pavement $77,539.31 He recommended award of the bid to the low bidder, Intermountain Slurry Seal, in the amount of $70,970, as the City has used them in the past and has been satisfied with their work. A motion was made Councilmember Orton and seconded by Councilmember Whatcott to award the bid to the low bidder, Intermountain Slurry Seal, in the amount of $70,970. Mayor Pro Tem Isom called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Whatcott - aye Councilmember Gardner - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Mayor Pro Tem Isom did not vote. The motion passed. St. George City Council Minutes April 5, 2001 Page Three ROAD MAINTENANCE POLICY: Councilmember Allen advised that during a local radio show a citizen expressed concern at the amount of money used for maintenance of roads and considered it a waste. Councilmember Allen asked City Manager Gary Esplin to explain the City’s policy on road maintenance. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the City has an annual pavement management plan with a budget of one million dollars a year to provide maintenance of City streets. This maintenance stops cracking and deterioration of streets which results in pot holes. Preventive maintenance costs less than replacing a street which has deteriorated due to a lack of maintenance. SET PUBLIC HEARING: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held March 27, 2001, recommended a public hearing be scheduled on May 3, 2001 at 5:00 p.m. to consider amending a PD zone for the Stone Cliff project at 2600 East 1450 South to make some changes in the original layout of the project and increase the number of homes from 513 to 573. Gail Maxwell is the agent for the applicant, Kay Traveller. A motion was made by Councilmember Allen and seconded by Councilmember Gardner to schedule the public hearing on May 3, 2001 at 5:00 p.m. as recommended by the Planning Commission. Mayor Pro Tem Isom called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Gardner - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Whatcott - aye Mayor Pro Tem Isom did not vote. The motion carried. FINAL PLAT: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held March 27, 2001, recommended approval of the final plat for Coventry Lane Townhomes Phase I. Kevin Ence is the applicant. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner and seconded by Councilmember Orton to approve the final plat and authorize the Mayor to sign it. Mayor Pro Tem Isom called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Gardner - aye Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Whatcott - aye Mayor Pro Tem Isom did not vote. The motion carried. FINAL PLAT: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held March 27, 2001, recommended approval of the final plat for Point West Estates Subdivision. Kevin Ence is the applicant. Mr. Bradley advised that the City Council previously approved the preliminary plat for this project but tabled a request that the City maintain the landscape strip along Dixie Drive and Stonebridge Drive as they felt they were not in a position to take action and staff should review the proposal and make a recommendation. Leisure Services staff is willing to maintain the site as long as the developer meets City installation criteria and the irrigation system meets City standards. This would include review of plans and inspection at the time of installation. Clayton Leavitt, the developer to the east and adjacent to Mr. Ence’s project, is working with Mr. Ence on the Stonebridge Drive landscape plans. Mr. Leavitt is also requesting that the City maintain the landscape strip along his two projects. These projects will come to the City Council as final plats soon. If the City Council feels comfortable with the request, Mr. Bradley suggested it would be helpful to address maintenance issues along Stonebridge Drive from Dixie Drive east to the end of Mr. Leavitt’s development at the same time. The Planning Commission recommended approval subject to the developer meeting all conditions for maintenance, and inclusion of a note on the plat that no access on or off of Dixie Drive and Stonebridge Drive for double St. George City Council Minutes April 5, 2001 Page Four frontage lots will be permitted. Mr. Bradley advised that the developer would have responsibility for installation of the water meter. Kevin Ence, applicant, advised he is willing to install the water meter and pay the impact fees if the City will pay for the water when it accepts maintenance of the landscape strip. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the City has a policy which says that on limited access streets (66’-80’) where homes do not front onto that street, the City Council can choose to maintain the landscape strip on a case by case basis. Normally, homeowners associations are required to maintain the landscape strips, but when none exists, the City may choose to do so. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised there does not have to be a planned development for there to be a homeowners association, and one could be formed with the specific single duty to maintain the landscape strip. This is another option available to developers. City Manager Gary Esplin commented this was a philosophical issue not yet addressed by the City Council. He expressed concern that maintenance of landscape strips would become labor intensive and would require hiring additional employees. Councilmember Allen commented that while she hated to see an additional burden placed on Parks Department staff, the key was installation of low maintenance xeriscaping. Councilmember Orton commented that either private development or the City should maintain landscape strips in certain areas of the town to maintain the integrity of the area. Councilmember Whatcott stated he was not sure the citizenry at large would want their tax dollars used to maintain landscape strips, and the City must decide if it wants to be in the landscaping business as this request will likely be the first of many. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the type of road must also be looked at and perhaps maintenance should be limited to landscape strips along 80 foot roads only. Councilmember Gardner made a motion to approve the final plat and authorize the Mayor to sign, but commented the City needed to further examine the issue. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Orton. Councilmember Gardner clarified that his motion included the provisions recommended by the Planning Commission. Mayor Pro Tem Isom called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Whatcott - aye Councilmember Gardner - aye Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Mayor Pro Tem Isom did not vote. The motion carried. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider a request for a conditional use permit for the breeding and raising of up to 400 pairs of exotic birds within a fully enclosed facility at 3311 East 2170 South. Tom Brinkerhoff, applicant. This item was tabled. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider a request for a conditional use permit for the breeding and raising of up to 250 pairs of exotic birds within a fully enclosed facility at 3333 East 2170 South. Drew Ferwerda, applicant. St. George City Council Minutes April 5, 2001 Page Five This item was tabled. AFFORDABLE HOUSING IMPACT FEE DEFERRAL PROGRAM: Consider a recommendation from the Affordable Housing Committee regarding income limits for participants in the impact fee deferral program. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised the Affordable Housing Committee recommends that income limits under the impact fee deferral program be raised from 80% of the area median income to 100% for those purchasing a home. The 80% income limit would remain for those renting. Raising the limit would enable a family of four to purchase a home in the range of approximately $96,000, assuming they were not heavily burdened with other debt. Councilmember Gardner advised it was his understanding the purpose of this program was to help those whose incomes were not up to the average, and raising the income limit would now make the program available to anyone in the median income bracket. Mr. Nicholson replied that the City allots only 60 deferrals a year, and as of yet no one has been able to meet the income limits in order to qualify to purchase a home. All of the deferrals given to date have been for rentals. Myrna Stout, a member of the Affordable Housing Committee and Planning Commission, advised there was a need to increase the income level. She advised that an entry-level teaching position paid $24,000 a year, which is 58% of the area median income, and that teacher would not be able to qualify to purchase a new home. She reminded that this program was for new construction only. She advised it was difficult to build a new home for less than $100,000. Councilmember Gardner inquired if there were other housing available in the community for less than $100,000. Ms. Stout replied that the reality of the current program is that no one can take advantage of this program for new homes because they cannot qualify at the current income level. Councilmember Gardner commented that this program may be counterproductive to revitalizing the older area of St. George by encouraging young families to purchase homes there rather than the newer homes in the outer growth areas. Councilmember Orton suggested limiting the number of deferrals given to rental units and insist a certain number be given for single family homes. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the City must decide if it wants to continue the program as presently exists, or raise the income level to give families a chance to purchase a home. Councilmember Gardner commented that if the program becomes available to anyone who qualifies for the median income, builders would want to build products in that price range. Myrna Stout advised the proposed increase is quite modest, and at this point the program has not helped anyone purchase a home. The City will not see 60 families a year qualify for the program, and perhaps only ten who qualify for the income level will have good enough credit and a low enough debt ratio to qualify. City Manager Gary Esplin asked Myrna Stout if the City helped a first time buyer with a grant and loan in second position to the bank’s loan, and if the buyer came up with $10,000 for a down payment plus a second to allow for improvements, would that make loans more available to those who want to purchaser older homes in the downtown area. Ms. Stout replied that those with $10,000 for a down payment do not need the program. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested changing the current program to offer an incentive to purchase an older home in the downtown area. The program could be evaluated every year. St. George City Council Minutes April 5, 2001 Page Six Mayor Pro Tem Isom suggested the City Council and Affordable Housing Committee meet to discuss the issue. Councilmember Whatcott commented that impact fees are used to improve water, power and sewer services, and most of the older homes never had to pay an impact fee. Therefore, if the deferral program is used to locate families in the older homes, and improvements are made to the home’s electric or water system, the impact fee deferral in essence is being used to improve the older areas of town. Carol Sapp, a member of the Affordable Housing Committee and Executive Director of the Southern Utah Homebuilders Association, advised that many mortgage companies host housing fairs on a regular basis. She advised that before the deferral program is changed, an inventory of available housing should be taken. A motion to approve the increased income limit as part of the affordable housing impact fee deferral program for one year while exploring ways to keep the downtown housing market alive was made by Councilmember Gardner and seconded by Councilmember Orton. Mayor Pro Tem Isom called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Whatcott - aye Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Gardner - aye Mayor Pro Tem Isom did not vote. The motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/ORDINANCE/ZONE CHANGE: Public hearing to consider a request for a zone change from C-2 Highway Commercial to C-3 General Commercial for one acre of property located on the north side of Tabernacle at 831 and 857 East. Dave Forsyth, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised it is the applicant’s intent to request a conditional use permit for student housing at a later date. The entire site is one acre, including the veterinary clinic property, but only 26,136 sq. ft. will be used for the actual building. The property is adjacent to a C-3 zone. Mayor Pro Tem Isom opened the public hearing. Darris Rasmussen advised the area adjacent to the College will see a lot of growth and therefore there will be more demand for student housing. He advised it made sense for the property to be zoned C-3, and the zone change is needed in order to apply for the conditional use permit. Councilmember Allen advised she contacted the College about housing and was informed College housing is onl...

...ening of Dixie Drive. Ms. Taylor said that she and her staff have been in contact with the Public Works Department to coordinate how the widening project will impact Tonaquint Park. Currently, there is an approved budget of $253,500 to upgrade the unimproved area of the park; however they are requesting more funds to make the additional improvements that will be needed due to the changes to Dixie Drive. Parks Planner Mark Goble presented a power point presentation that included the following: Original Tonaquint Park Expansion Design Current Budget: $253,500, Proposed Changes Cost Estimate: $503,000, Additional Money Requested and All-Abilities Park. City Manager expressed that the roads should connect as much as they possibly can to provide better access. Mr. Goble explained that with regard to the Tonaquint Nature Center, during the 2005 flood a lot of the vegetation was damaged and much of the area was wiped out. He said that the intent is to revegetate and clean up the area as well as expand the pond to make room for more wildlife. Mr. Goble stated that because of the high volume of traffic on Dixie Drive, they would like to move the entrance to the stop light which would provide a safer way of accessing the park. Ms. Taylor asked Mr. Goble to address the parking for the Community Garden. Mr. Goble explained that the County is hoping to be partially finished with the paved parking lot by the Spring of 2012. In the future, the City will be adding additional parking areas. Councilmember Gil Almquist inquired if the City could require shade trees in the parking areas. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that there will be a need for more parking areas as the park sees more use. He stated that he would look at the Capital Project Fund and make this a priority. Leisure Service Director Kent Perkins stated that the All-Abilities Park would provide persons of all abilities has an equal opportunity to have a quality experience. Mr. Perkins explained that this park would be a great opportunity to get the community St. George City Council Minutes December 8, 2011 Page Seven involved in a project. He stated that he has been in contact with the Exchange Club and that they have committed to some funding...

... through him. They will list the City as an insured. He apologized for not contacting Scott Staley but did speak with Public Works. He recommended approval to close 500 South to the west but not allow the closure of 700 East until the plan can be further reviewed for safety and the College contacted to see if the party can be relocated to an internal area. He advised that permission will be obtained from the homes impacted and a closure will not be permitted unless the residents are OK with it. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that Deputy Chief Farnsworth requested that the College have their police stationed at 700 East. Mayor Pro Tem Bunker commented in the past parking has been allowed in the middle of 700 East, but the public has always had access down 700 East. She stated she felt closing 700 East would be a mistake and that campus police should escort people across 700 East. She also requested that City staff contact adjacent homeowners personally. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to close 500 South as requested for all home football games this season, but to deny closure of 700 East at this time. Further, Dixie College Security is required to assist in making sure that cars are not turning on to 500 South and people are getting safely across 700 East. City staff is directed to contact neighbors to make sure they know what is going on and are OK with i...

...eces. She asked the Councilmembers to have anyone looking for a piece, to contact their board so that they can promote all of the artists involved in the show. Ms. Bevans stated that if the Councilmember gave them a list of what historical events they would like to depict, they would be happy to find an artist. Leisure Services Kent Perkins stated as the City moves toward the concept of the arts district downtown, pieces can find homes. He believes this board does an outstanding job. Ms. Bevins stated that they do tours and asked if the City can get the word out that pieces are for sale. Support Services Manager Marc Mortensen stated that the pieces can be advertised on the City’s Facebook page as well as the City’s website. DISCUSSION REGARDING PARKING REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENT HOUSING: City Manager Gary Esplin stated that staff was approached by Dixie State University with regard to student housing. They are looking to build student housing on their campus. Staff met with them and talked about their concept. While City ordinance requires so many parking stalls per bed, the University stated that makes it impossible to have a housing project around the campus. The University’s goal is to have student housing as part of the campus which helps students be more involved. By contract, they can limit the number of cars each resident can have. The location of the proposed student housing is inside the freeway. They believe the project can move forward if they can get a parking reduction similar to what has been done at other Universities. He proposes to consider St. George City Council Minutes March 27, 2014 Page Three reducing the parking, if the University can show the contracts with the students and enforce that they will not rent to students with vehicles. Councilmember Hughes stated there may be an issue with neighboring complexes using their parking. Councilmember Almquist stated the University will not police the parking, the owner will. Mr. Nicholson stated that he spoke with a gentleman from Rexburg, they rely on the property owner to enforce the parking. Additionally, they have a pedestrian emphasis zone around the campus and require a conditional use permit. He thinks the City can accomplish this with an agreement. City Manager Gary Esplin advised there would have to be a limit the number of residents. Staff would have to review the contracts to see that they are abiding by the agreement. Bob Nicholson stated that the University is requesting .75 parking stalls per bed. Councilmember Almquist would like to see the owner label the vehicle somehow to show that they are a resident. City Manager Gary Esplin stated this project showed underground parking for the site. There will be very little parking on the surface. He stated that he does not want to enforce parking on the street; however, the road around the campus is still a City road. Mayor Pike commented that the University is getting an incredible amount of students from outside Utah. He inquired if staff can make sure this stays student housing. City Manager Gary Esplin replied yes, the development agreement can state that. Since the University owns a portion of the property, this project will not go forward unless the Board of Regents approves the project. If the Council chooses to consider this request, the next step is to go to the Planning Commission and amend the ordinance. Councilmember Almquist stated that he would like to see an additional paragraph that states that more stringent parking could be considered. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that he does not think the intent is to have less parking, he believes it will allow a reduction in the parking in an area based upon an application and individual development agreement. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised there could be a list of factors to consider. The consensus of the Council is to move forward. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a request for a zone change from Mining & Grazing and A-1 to R-1-10 on 29.97 acres generally located southeast of the intersection of Crimson Ridge Drive and 3000 East Street, and east of the Sun Valley Estates subdivision. Development Solutions, Inc., applicant. Craig Harvey presented the request for a zone change on a 29.97 acre parcel. The property is generally located at 3000 East and Crimson Ridge Drive. The general plan was changed to low density residential. If the zone change is approved, it will allow the St. George City Council Minutes March 27, 2014 Page Four applicant to continue with what they are currently doing. Planing Commission recommends approval. The parcel is mining and grazing, but it has not been irrigated or used for crops in the past 30 years. Staff received two letters of opposition. Councilmember Arial stated that she has been getting comments from residents that this area is too dense. Councilmember Hughes stated he would like to have some balance. Since there are only two ways to get around, he believes the traffic issues have to be addressed. It will be interesting to see how much the Mall Drive Bridge will help. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the same problem exists to the east and west black hill; there is only Sunset Boulevard and Dixie Drive. He stated that there will be traffic, but the density will not make much difference. Mr. Nicholson advised that there is a proposal for an area that is currently zoned A-1, which is under irrigation, that can remain zoned as such. The existing homes are on 1 acre lots. Councilmember Hughes stated that he has seen that proposal and would like it brought to the Council. If the roads were complete and when the bridge is done, things may be better. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that with regard to Seegmiller Drive, if the Council wants to, they can include that project in the next year’s budget. Brett Burgess, applicant, stated that in addition to this parcel, they are planning a 4 acre park within the proposed area. The first phase will be approximately 77 units. He explained that SITLA owns the adjacent property, however, they have a joint development agreement with for the rest of the hillside. They are proposing cluster development in the areas that are not so unique and to develop a natural park in the areas that are unique. As they develop, they try to be sensitive for what has been developed in the area. With regards to Commerce Drive, they do not control the access. All of the road improvements that the City is making will help to alleviate a big portion of the traffic issues. Councilmember Hughes inquired if there a plan for a pedestrian trail. Mr. Harvey advised there will be a pedestrian trail on the west side of the road which then switches over to the other side. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the trail switches over because of the big ditch on the east side of 3000 East. The applicant has always built trails exactly the way the City has asked them two. Councilmember Almquist just because something is zoned A-1, if they cannot grow anything, the idea of just leaving it alone is unfair to the landowner. Things were learned from issues with Bridle Gate. Areas that are land-locking areas, which can be permanent open space should also be considered. Mayor Pike opened the public hearing. Audrey Taylor, a resident of Little Valley, stated that she is happy to hear Mr. Burgess say St. George City Council Minutes March 27, 2014 Page Five that he respects the native qualities of the land. She and her family love this area because there are great locations for hiking and rocks for climbing. There are native petroglyphs that she does not want to be disturbed which she suggests be worked into into the park. She has read a lot of emails from residents to the Mayor and City Council. Their biggest concerns are the amenities in the area. She would like to see crosswalks and a small grocery store. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that he has seen a conceptual plan for a small commercial center in the area. There are some incredible open areas. He would love to have a park in that area. Ms. Taylor stated that she wants to see the natural beauty of the area preserved. In addition, she would like to make sure the Council is not handing out zoning changes faster than stop signs, crosswalks and walk round-abouts are installed to make the area safer. Mayor Pike advised there will have a 4 way stop at Crimson Ridge and Little Valley Road. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that crosswalks sometimes give a false sense of security. Having the four way stop and a crossing guard is a much better option. He is not arguing for or against the zone change; however, this area conforms to the General Plan. Bradley Johnson, resident of Little Valley, stated he and his family moved to the Little Valley area because it is a beautiful area. He is worried about the area becoming Southern California and does not want the natural landscape to go away. Additionally, he understands that although the area was once agricultural, it will never be so again. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that it is important to point out that there has never been any agriculture on the lot because there is no irrigation water. Councilmember Almquist commented that the City has an overlay zone. A developer cannot just take the ridge and eliminate it. This is the most logical place to have a natural park. Even if there was a cluster development, there is a limit of how close they can cut into the hillside. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that the Burgess’ developed Tonaquint Terrace and donated 4 acres to the City. Mr. Burgess explained that they have a development agreement with SITLA to purchase the property and will donate a portion to the City. He is very well aware of the beauty of southern Utah as he was born and raised here. Ed Baca, citizen, stated that he is pleasantly surprised at the way the Burgess’ were working with the City. Ms. Taylor asked if any of the area is planned to stay zoned agriculture. City Manager Gary Esplin replied not in this area since there isn’t any water. Councilmember Bowcutt commented that one thing everyone mentions are the traffic concerns. There will always be some sort of traffic problem because there will never be another crossing over the Virgin River. St. George City Council Minutes March 27, 2014 Page Six City Manager Gary Esplin stated the City has committed to spend approximately $15 million to improve transportation in the area, which is more than has been spent on any other part of the City. Josh Taylor, Little Valley resident, states that he appreciates what the City is doing to keep the traffic flowing. He would like preserve the area’s natural beauty. Mayor Pike closed the public hearing. Councilmember Hughes commented that Quality has always done what they have said they would do. He wants to maintain the natural beauty while maintaining the rights of the property owner to develop their property as they would like to. He noted that was discussion regarding a 4 acre parcel in this zone change for a park. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to approve the zone change to R-1-10. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Arial. Councilmember Almquist stated he believes the park should stay in as mentioned. Additionally, if there is flexibility with the parcel below, he would like to see a natural park. Mr. Burgess advises as part of their agreement with SITLA, as they develop, not only do they take down developable acreage, they also take down native or natural acreage. Their next take down with SITLA will be in September. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that he wanted to clarify that there are always trade offs. SITLA sells property to developers and want to maximize the money they get from the sale to get as much money as they can for schools. VOTE: Mayor Pike called for a roll call vote, as follows: Councilmember Almquist- aye Councilmember Hughes - aye Councilmember Randall - aye Councilmember Bowcutt - aye Councilmember Arial - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. REPORT FROM COUNCILMEMBERS: Councilmember Arial stated that there is not much going on with her boards. She recently attended the MPO and WCIA board meetings. Councilmember Randall stated that she will attend her first Arbor Day celebration on April 26th. Judge Walton will oversee Veteran’s Calendar which will help veterans with regard to bad behavior. The gala for the Doctor’s Volunteer Clinic raised approximately $18,000. Monday at 5:00 p.m. there will have a short ceremony and unveiling of the monument at the Tonaquint Cemetery to honor Lee Warren. St. George City Council Minutes March 27, 2014 Page Seven City Manager Gary Esplin commented that Matt Loo is working with owners and the trees in parking lots near Lowes and Target will be taken care of. Councilmember Almquist stated that the Dino Track Advisory board met on Tuesday. The Mosquito Abatement board will meet once mating season has begun.

Splash pads are planned for Shadow Mountain Park and Cox Park for now, as well as Hidden Valley Park. She explained that the dog park in JC Snow Park will consist of one acre divided in half - one half for small and timid dogs and the other half for large dogs. Eight citizens have volunteered to sit on a committee to formulate rules for the dog park. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the 2450 East Park is also being considered for a dog park.

She recommended award of the yearly blanket to Scholzen Products, the lowest overall bidder, in the amount of $75,000, and to Ferguson Waterworks, the next lowest bidder, in the amount of $50,000. Ferguson will be used as a secondary source in case Scholzen does not have what the City needs. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Pike to award the bid as recommended. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. APPROVAL OF AGREEMENT: Consider approval of a cost sharing agreement with Quality Development for a water line to the replacement airport.

The City is ready to bid for excavation at the new airport site and needs water for this purpose. It is proposed the City participate with Quality in installation of this water line in order to save $200,000. Water Services Director Barry Barnum advised the line begins where the canal crosses 3000 East and runs south ending where the small road to the airport begins to the base of the hill. The line is a 16" line. It will eventually extend through the airport and service a lot of the area to the south and east of the airport.

City Manager Gary Esplin commented that CDBG funds are being used for purchase of materials for the project, but this will be a separate bid. Water Services Manager Barry Barnum explained that Red Canyon Contractors will install the new sewer lines and storm drains. JP Excavating will reroute the existing sewer laterals from behind the homes to the road to the new main line. These bids are for installation only.

MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to approve the resolution. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: St. George City Council Minutes February 21, 2008 Page Three Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Almquist - aye Council Member Shakespeare - aye Council Member Pike - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution authorizing and approving the absolute assignment and transfer of the City?s Payson Power Project Power Sales Contract, an absolute assignment agreement and related matters. This item was tabled. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution adopting an updated conservation plan. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that every five years the City is required to update its conservation plan. Conservation Coordinator Ren? Fleming explained the City has been aggressive in its water conservation efforts by developing several programs and partnerships. Residential water use has dropped 27% over the last five years. Conservation programs include a toilet replacement program, upgrading the City?s SCADA system to monitor the water tanks so they do not overflow, an appliance rebate program, and free lawn water audits. The City just received verbal notice that its proposed outdoor landscaping rebate program has been funded. Changes to the conservation plan include more specific goals and programs. Council Member Almquist inquired about policing of excess water use. Ms. Fleming replied that she investigates water waste complaints but does not issue tickets. Council Member Almquist inquired if the irrigation water in Bloomington is part of the City?s program. Ms. Fleming replied that daytime watering is targeted at culinary water. Council Member Almquist commented that it was the City?s intent to have a secondary water system for outside watering. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that the City is the manager of the Bloomington Water Company and owns a majority of the water shares. The goal is to have a secondary water source. The first area to have one will be south of River road and the Little Valley area. Council Member Almquist requested that Ms. Fleming investigate a water leak in the vacant lot behind the Lutheran Church in the Bloomington area. Ms. Fleming advised that citizens can obtain information about conservation on the City?s web page. Mayor McArthur advised that Ms. Fleming is also the conservation coordinator for power and anyone desiring information on conservation can contact Ms. Fleming.

City Council Minutes 01/15/2015:
...ut Your Cabinet Event; Past 30-Day Use (All Grades); What Can You Do?; and Contact Information. The coalition is working on regulations for e-cigarettes as there are not any at this time. He invited Mayor Pike and the Councilmembers to become members or to attend their meetings which are held on the second Thursday of each month at the Southwest Center. PRESENTATION FROM THE SCHOOL OF LIFE FOUNDATION: Kip Kint, Director of Training Services for the School of Life Foundation, provided a handout containing the School of Life Overview and Report. He then showed a video outlining what the foundation provides. He reviewed the overview and report which includes the list of the Washington County High Schools they are in, their impact, an explanation of how the classes are taught and student experiences. He invited Mayor Pike and the Councilmembers to visit one of their classes. DISCUSSION ON THE SPECIAL EVENTS PERMIT PROCESS AND ORDINANCE: Economic & Housing Development Director Matt Loo provided a draft of the proposed special event application and ordinance changes. He read the proposed changes to the ordinance. Councilmember Bowcutt inquired about the proposed fees for City staff to coordinate or work an event. He wondered if that would discourage event planners from holding an event that is good for the community. Additionally, he asked who was on the special event review committee. Mr. Loo stated that Councilmember Bowcutt’s comment is a consideration. He explained that number two in section 1-6, lists who is on the committee. City Attorney Shawn Guzman recommended that the committee not be the body who approves the events; rather it be the City Manager. The committee will simply supply the information to the City Manager to review and approve or deny. Additionally, the City Manager can recommend that the event go before the City Council for approval. Councilmember Arial commented that she has enjoyed knowing about the events. She would like to be informed of the events that are taking place. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that there are a couple of issues with an event not going to City Council. The first being the advertisement they would get and the second is who has the authority to waive the fees. He believes the City Council should retain the approval of fee waivers unless there are specific events they would like to delegate approval authority. He believes the ordinance should include language stating that events of a certain size or number of attendees be approved by the City Council. Additionally, for events that have been approved by the City Council in the past, if there were no problems with previous events, they need not be approved by the City Council for subsequent events. They would still have to meet the requirements. Staff wants to be flexible, but there are issues if they do not know about an event. If an existing business has been approved for this type of use and is St. George City Council Minutes January 15, 2015 Page Three built for the event, such as a school or a church, they may not need to go through the approval process. A school that sponsors their own event at their own facility is exempt. Mayor Pike commented that the public may expect a fee waiver for the cost of City staff if the event is being planned for a 501C(3); however, if it is for profit, they should pay the cost. Councilmember Bowcutt stated that it may be hard to collect enough to pay for the true cost of the staff. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that some events are budgeted for and the City will have to cover the expense. Staff’s concern is that their overtime budget may be depleted for covering events that are not budgeted for. Councilmember Almquist commented that the cost could be tied to the number of attendees or demographics. He inquired about violation and penalties for those that violate the permit or do not obtain a permit at all. Mayor Pike pointed out that the section talks about violating the ordinance. That would cover those that did not obtain a permit. Councilmember Almquist inquired about number three in section 1-7, with regard to trained security. Mr. Loo explained that as part of the process, the Police Department will see that the credentials fit the event. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that if the City Manager is instructed to take the advice of the committee who says the security is inadequate, the applicant can appeal to the City Council. The 30 day notice, which is less than other cities, is key because most of the problems that have occurred in the past did so because the applications were not received in a timely manner. Ed Baca, citizen, commented that he has been involved with many special events as a police officer. People learn to realize that private security officers do not have the same impact or influence as police officers. What they did, as part of the application, the applicant could hire an off duty police officer at their hourly rate. This allowed the officer to have paid overtime at their hourly rate. The city received the money from the applicant and paid the officer as part of their check. Councilmember Arial compared the fee proposal to a wedding reception. You have to rent different items and pay a fee for them. If an event is non-profit or a block party, the fee should be waived. It is important that event promoters pay for security if it is a big event. Mayor Pike explained that there are a lot of non-profit organizations that make money. That will have to be addressed when an application is received. St. George City Council Minutes January 15, 2015 Page Four Councilmember Bowcutt mentioned the Lions parade and the Round Up Rodeo. For all of the work that the City does to make these happen, he is afraid that if the fees are too excessive, it will take away from donations they can make to other organizations in the community. Councilmember Arial commented that to her, the Round Up Rodeo is different as the City sponsors the event. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that the Council needs to identify events that are sponsored by the City. He explained that some events are budgeted for. He believes that these events should be grandfathered in as well as adding additional events in that the Council feels are important to the community. Mayor Pike mentioned that the City has not done New Year’s Eve events in the past few years. If an individual approaches the City to put on a New Year’s Eve event, the City may want to become a sponsor. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that there needs to be confidence in the process. The committee reviews the applications for a reason, to make sure the event is held without affecting safety. Mr. Loo addressed the proposed special event permit application. An area will be added for departments to sign that they reviewed the application. He outlined the additions and changes to the application. Additionally, he explained that the ordinance states that an event should not be advertised until approved. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that if an event is advertised prior to getting approval, the City is not at fault, the promoter is. If an application is received in full, it needs to be approved within a reasonable time, not near the end of the 30 days. Councilmember Hughes commented that the 30 days should be a minimum requirement. If a promoter is putting on a large event, they should submit an application sooner. Councilmember Almquist inquired about calendaring events. Mr. Loo stated that the ordinance covers timing and scheduling as well as events that may conflict with another. The City’s goal is to make all of the events as successful as possible. Mayor Pike asked Tiffany Barnes if she would like to comment on the proposed changes. Ms. Barnes commented that what a special event is has not been clarified. If she plans a wedding and expects 350 guests, would she need to apply for a special event permit and obtain insurance? She suggested a tiered system. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that it would depend on where the event is taking place. The City’s intent is to have the committee review the event and have it St. George City Council Minutes January 15, 2015 Page Five approved without going to the Council if it is under a certain number of attendees. If a party takes places inside a business zoned for that specific use, they do not need a permit. Ms. Barnes commented on specifying the type of activity. While she agrees with needing to know, she suggested the City take a different approach. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that staff does not know what is being planned unless the applicant specifies that on the application. A concert or a dance may have different requirements. Mayor Pike noted that the City is not opposed to a specific type of event. Staff just wants to see that issues revolving the event are dealt with. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that the dance hall ordinance will be looked at. The proposed process will allow for applications to be approved more timely as long as the application is received and complete. Mayor Pike invited Ms. Barnes to contact staff with further questions and concerns. He mentioned that he me...

... such as a class reunion or family reunion. Mr. Gardner was advised to contact Kent Perkins so this request can be accommodated. Greg Stevens suggested the zoning in the downtown be increased, as the current RCC zone stagnates the area. He suggested that building height restrictions be lifted. He suggested that the Water Walk be expanded similar to the San Antonio River Walk and paid for with special impact fees assessed against buildings over three stories and through motel and hotel taxes. He suggested a committee be formed to investigate these possibilities. Larry Morrison commended the City Council on adoption of an ordinance requiring compliance with federal laws governing employment eligibility and verification of workers by entities who contract for provision of services to the City, and inquired if a similar ordinance would be adopted with regard to business licensing. Mr. Morrison was advised that the City?s legal department is currently working on this matter. St. George City Council Minutes April 30, 2008 Page Two Margaret Heaton suggested that in these lean economic times, dog parks are unnecessary and the City should not be paying for special places for people to walk their dogs. Frank Stuart thanked the City Council for installing the traffic signal on Snow Canyon Parkway. He inquired if citizens would have a vote on the Lake Powell pipeline issue. Mayor McArthur encouraged Mr. Stuart to attend a documentary on the history of water in Utah, Monday at noon in the Water and Energy Services building. He commented that no community can ever have enough water, but that conservation also needed to be encouraged. Council Member Shakespeare commented that Representative David Clark said he had no problem with putting the Lake Powell pipeline issue to a vote. Joe Hagen inquired what type of aircraft will be able to use the new airport and what the weight bearing capacity of the runway will be. Mayor McArthur replied that 737s will be able to use the runway. Mr. Hagen inquired if the airport would be just a regional airport or used for direct routes to destinations across the United States. Mayor McArthur replied it will be a replacement airport for jet traffic. The runway is 9,300 ft. in length with the capability of expanding to 11,000 ft. It will have service through United and Delta through Skywest, but this is non-exclusive so there is the possibility of other carriers using the airport. Steve MacFarlane inquired if the original plan for the new airport was still in place or if cutbacks to the original plan had been made. City Manager Gary Esplin replied the City has been in contact with Southwest Airlines and other airlines. However, the replacemen...

MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Pike to award the bid as recommended. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker.

Purchasing Manager Connie Hood explained the change order with R. E. Monks is in the amount of $418, 219.80. City Manager Gary Esplin clarified with the change order is in the amount of $268,721. Airport Manager Rick Crosman explained the change order is necessary because of the final reconfiguration of the property for final location of the terminal building, FBO areas and ARFF building. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the change order also includes an extension to the contract time of eight days. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch explained the change order is for uncontested items while other items are being negotiated and time is needed to work through the issues. This change order is just a small part of overall changes that will be made to the contract. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to approve the change order in the amount of $268,721. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Pike.

She recommended award of the bid to the low bidder, JP Excavating, including Alternates A, B and C, in the amount of $632,251.16. She explained this bid is under the engineer?s estimate of $675,000. St. George City Council Minutes December 18, 2008 Page Four Zac Koceja, Project Manager, explained the park is located at 1800 North Dixie Downs Road. Many meetings and three open houses were held for area residents to receive input on what they wanted in the park. The top amenity requested was a splash pad, but there is not enough parking to accommodate one as the park is under four acres. The amenities will include a playground, restrooms, off-street parking, a pavilion, landscaping and grass area and an off-leash dog area. The dog area was the second most requested amenity. There will also be an 8' wide perimeter walking path. Alternate A includes a water reuse line, Alternate B includes the concrete perimeter walk, and Alternate C includes reconstruction of 1740 North Street. Construction will begin January 13 with a five month construction period. He explained that the play equipment will include a large play structure for children ages two to five, and another for children ages five to twelve.

SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Almquist - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Shakespeare - aye Council Member Pike - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance increasing the dollar amounts for purchasing thresholds. Purchasing Manager Connie Hood explained that the City has not made changes to its purchasing ordinance for ten years. The dollar thresholds are low and not consistent with national or state averages. She advised that raising thresholds will streamline the purchasing process and make the purchasing system more transparent to the public. More purchasing information will be provided on the City?s website and continuous training will be provided. She recommended that department purchase orders be raised to $500, informal verbal bids be required on purchases totaling $501 to $5,000, three written bids be required on purchases totaling $5,001 to $25,000, City Council approval be required on professional services over $25,000, formal sealed bids be required on purchases totaling $25,001 to $50,000, and City Council approval for construction, goods or services be required for purchases over $50,000. She explained this would mean fewer bids would come to the City Council for approval, but she would still provide the information to the City Council. Mayor McArthur clarified that all bids are reviewed by department heads and the City Manager and are constrained by budgets in any event. Ms. Hood commented that the City Manager will have the option of reviewing and approving all purchases and change orders up to $50,000. The City?s website will soon have purchasing information updated on a regular basis, but until then, anyone interested in obtaining this information can contact her. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Pike to approv...

...can be met. Council Member Allen inquired if the applicant had been in contact with the Candlewood Association. St. George City Council Minutes April 3, 2008 Page Five Mr. Kelsch replied that he had a meeting with them. Their main concern was with their wall. It has structural problems and no rebar in the footings. He stated a joint venture may be possible where the wall is taken down and rebuilt. He stated he was more than happy to work with them, and this can be part of the development agreement. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Wayne Hampton, a resident at 100 South 131 West, stated he felt the applicant had good ideas, but in three to five years the applicant would be gone and the project would then become a slum. Mayor McArthur replied the applicant indicated he would be willing to enter into an agreement that the units would not be rentals, but would be owner occupied. Council Member Shakespeare inquired if this could be made permanent. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson replied this requirement could be made part of the CC&Rs and would be binding. Mr. Kelsch advised that a deed rider would be more permanent than CC&Rs. Mr. Nicholson advised that the project includes traditional style cottage bungalows which would be an asset to the neighborhood. Council Member Allen commented that the City Council has not ignored this area of town. It put $6,000,000 into the Town Square, redid the drainage system, and enacted the RCC zone to keep people living in t he downtown. The City Council cares about the downtown - it is the heart of the City. Frank Carter, a resident at 190 South 100 West, stated he did not see the benefit of bringing more congestion and housing to this particular block since there are many high density housing projects and rentals. He stated he wanted to see yards maintained with gardens in the back and fruit trees. He stated it seemed that families were moving out, not in, and the proposed small homes are not for families. This is the last of large lots left on the block, and quality of life should take precedence over development. He stated if the project were approved, he would like the wall to be put up before construction commenced. Council Member Bunker commented she believed that property values would increase based on the photos she saw of the proposed project. Council Member Pike commented that Mr. Kelsch seemed like a reasonable person and is a good man to have as a neighbor. He stated the neighborhood could do a lot worse. Council Member Shakespeare commented she believed the RCC zone needed to be re-examined to see if it could be made better and stronger. She suggested that a committee be formed to look at this. Council Member Almquist commented that 20 years ago it seemed to be the right thing to fill in all the interior lots with condos. Now it appears this was not the right thing to do. The applicant is asking for three homes in the back of the lot, when years ago it would have been ten homes. Dawn Humphries commented that the turnaround takes property from the lots. Mayor McArthur replied that codes have to be met. Mr. Kelsch advised that both lots are over 5,000 sq. ft. and the rear lot is over 6,000 sq. ft. He advised he is a former educator and would love to sell the homes to teachers. He requested that the issue be decided today if a conditional use is needed or if the plat can be approved with a permitted use. The difference is the setbacks. Gene Sturznegger advised that his father lives at 148 West 200 South. His father built a block wall that is only 5.5' high. The fill brought in by the applicant is 10' in height. He inquired how much the property was going to be raised in order to drain water back to the street. Andrea Jensen, a resident at 143 South 200 West, commented this project would drive out traditional homeowners. She inquired if Mr. Kelsch would commit to staying in the home. She commented the proposed homes were not large enough for families with children. St. George City Council Minutes April 3, 2008 Page Six Gloria Hampton, a resident at 131 West 100 South, expressed concern that too many units were being built on the small property as it will be crowded and the homes will be too small for families with children. She stated she was opposed to the development because the downtown is already crowded. Gloria Mower, a resident of Candlewood, advised that all in protest of the project are law-abiding citizens who don?t want to live like sardines. She stated the proposed project was too crowded, and rentals on the block are already causing problems. Leslie Leonard commented that the proposed homes are darling, but families with five children would not want to buy them because they are too small. She suggested the project be scaled back to two new homes only. Vern Spoke, a resident at 158 West 200 South, advised that parking is a problem and he did not see how families could be raised in the proposed project. James Jackson, a property owner east of this block, commented the diagrams showed all the units using the same driveway. Annie Ashcraft challenged the City Council to count all the multi-family units from Main Street to Bluff and condition in all the garbage and litter. She advised a single family home behind her has at least eight unrelated adults living there. She advised an aerial photo was needed showing how crowded this part of town is. Ms. Ashcraft was advised to call Code Enforcement with regard to the violation. Mayor McArthur advised that maps are in the process of being created showing where all rentals and businesses are throughout the RCC zone. Susie Carter, a resident at 190 South 100 West, advised she loved having a big backyard. She advised when the Kelsch?s moved in she asked Mrs. Kelsch is they planned on building in the backyard and was told they were not going to build. She stated he felt three houses and four garages was too much and the homes needed to be larger than proposed. She stated she would like to see a wall built before construction commences. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. Mr. Kelsch advised that he works two blocks away from his home. He stated if the downtown is not changed equal to the growth outward, it would die away, and the way to change it is not through density, but through beauty and attractiveness of the area. He stated he wanted to increase the opportunity for people to live in the downtown. He stated he originally started with six homes in the back with one of the original homes razed, and he loves the home he is in and wants more people to live in the downtown. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that from a legal issue, this is a significant change. The City Attorney agrees that the public hearing should be continued and the matter reheard because of conditional use issues. Mayor McArthur reopened the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to continue the public hearing until the next regular City Council meeting. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Almquist. Mayor McArthur explained the matter would be continued for two weeks in order to receive a plan that would work in the present zone. Mr. Kelsch requested a list of recommendations from everyone so he could put something together. He stated he would like to work with Council Member Shakespeare on a deed rider to make ownership permanent. Council Member Allen advised that the minutes would have all the recommendations. Council Member Bunker commented that one of the requests is that the wall be constructed before construction begins. Mr. Kelsch advised this would be part of the development agreement. Mayor McArthur commented it was recommended that the backyards be bigger and there be more trees. St. George City Council Minutes April 3, 2008 Page Seven MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Shakespeare to form a committee to study the RCC zone. Mayor McArthur advised that the previous motion had not yet been voted on. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote on the motion to continue the public hearing until the next regular City Council meeting, and all voted aye. The motion carried. Council Member Shakespeare commented that she would like Bob Nicholson to serve on the committee, someone from the community, and one person from the City Council. Mr. Kelsch volunteered to serve on the committee, saying he had a lot of experience in development. Mayor McArthur suggested that Thales Derrick be invited to serve on the committee as the community representative. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that Code Enforcement should be notified about problems with rentals and condition of properties. He advised the City?s goal is to not to be able to tell which property is a rental and which is owner occupied. PUBLIC HEARING/PRELIMINARY PLAT: Public hearing to consider approval of the preliminary plat for a one lot commercial subdivision located at 162 North 400 East, Bldg.?C?. LGO Inc. (Dale Larkin and Dan Gifford), applicant. Jay Sandberg explained that there is an existing building north of the Blvd. The final plat will condominiumize the units and will be presented at the next meeting. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Almquist to approve the 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 Silkwood Meadows at Meadow Valley located at approximately 2000 South Little Valley Road. Philips Homes, Sean Glather, applicant. Jay Sandberg advised that this project is part of the Meadow Valley Farms development. The Planning Commission recommended approval subject to the following conditions: (1) a development agreement be entered into; (2) the HOA maintain the 15% landscape trail area; (3) improvements shall be completed on Little Valley Road which include realigning the vertical grades to minimum safe design requirements; and (4) the park and trail improvements shall be completed concurrent with the phase of the subdivision. Mr. Sandberg advised that the City will maintain the trail itself with asphalt or concrete, with the applicant maintaining the landscaping all the way around the subdivision. All roads will be public at 50' with 32' of asphalt. 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. Jay Sandberg suggested that any approval be made subject to approval of the development agreement. AMENDED MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Pike to approve the preliminary plat subject to approval of the development agreement. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Shakespeare. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/ORDINANCE/ABANDON PORTION OF 200 WEST STREET: Public hearing to consider vacation of a portion of 200 West Street between St. George Blvd. and Tabernacle Street in order to accommodate the proposed new State courthouse complex. St. George City Council Minutes April 3, 2008 Page Eight Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained the portion to be closed is half of the street north of Tabernacle to the Blvd. The existing 200 West will terminate in a culdesac. The street has been closed for school use most of the time and has not been a through street very often. The vacation is to accommodate the needs of the new State courthouse complex located on both properties. The Planning Commission was concerned that public streets not be closed without urgency. However, this is the case in this situation in order to make this project viable. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the process for the new courthouse has been ongoing for several years. The City is also trying to make the area walkable. By locating the courthouse on the street a vast majority of the trees can be saved. There are lots of reasons why this location was chosen, including having the courthouse serve as an anchor for the downtown plaza. The City does not like to close streets because of circulation, but because access into the courthouse has to be secure, there was no other way to do it and keep the courthouse downtown. Additionally, this portion of 200 West has been closed most of the time anyway, and has only been open in the summers. Council Member Bunker commented that most of the public think the street is closed anyway. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Mona Alldredge commented that closure of 200 West will make traffic circulation more difficult. Jim Coleman inquired about ease or ability to maintain fire protection if the street is closed, and the functionality of a half-closed street. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that there is enough land for a turnaround. There will be a culdesac in the middle of the block. It will function like a regular street with a culdesac. As far as police and fire protection, there are no concerns. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. Council Member Shakespeare explained the Planning Commission was concerned about closing the street because another street had already been closed for the Town Square. She stated because of navigation and the handicap it created for those living downtown, the City Council needs to consider this in the future. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that he spoke with staff about closing the road and staff took a look at circulation in the area. There is still circulation. Council Member Almquist commented that public street property belongs to the people. He inquired how that is financially worked into the mix. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the value of the street is part of the trade for the old courthouse, and the City came out significantly better. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Almquist to approve the ordinance. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Almquist - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Shakespeare - aye Council Member Pike - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. Mayor McArthur called for a brief break. Upon conclusion of the break, the meeting continued. ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance amending Title 10, Chapter 7F, St. George City Code, to add provisions for a ?child family support facility? as a conditional use in the Residential Central City (RCC) zone. City Planner Ray Snyder reviewed the history of the request and reviewed the revised language in the ordinance. He explained the ordinance change is for the RCC zone only, as changes to the RE and R-1-10 zones have not been advertised. St. George City Council Minutes April 3, 2008 Page Nine Council Member Allen expressed concern that children would be turned away from the facility if it was full. Mr. Snyder replied the new language does not contain a maximum number. The suggested minimum separation from a similar facility is 2500'. The maximum length of time for shelter care is 30 days, and for respite is 72 hours. Chris Nelson, applicant, advised that more kids will be accessing shelter care. Respite care is for any community member who needs a time out from their children, or if their children are at risk of being abused. Council Member Allen expressed concern with setting a maximum number of children allowed. Ms. Nelson replied that through DCFS they have been able to find shelter homes when needed. One of the reason they would like to offer shelter homes is so a family of five did not have to be separated. Mary Ellen Craig advised that the facility will also allow DOVE Center moms to drop off their children while they look for work. Ms. Nelson explained that state licensing guidelines limit the number of children to 12. However, DCFS also has shelter homes. State requirements are 60 sq. ft. per child during the daytime and 40 sq. ft. per child overnight. There will be one to three staff members present at all times, depending on the ratio needed. Council Member Shakespeare explained that she was not opposed to this facility as there is a need for it and it has merit and adds to the community. What she objects to is changing an ordinance that was put into place to protect an area from the very thing requested, which is taking another house and turning it into a business. Part of the reason the RCC zone was created was to encourage preservation of existing single family homes. She stated this change strikes the heart of why the RCC zone was created. One of the laws of business is location, and community planning requires balance. When communities forget balance the integrity of the community and neighborhood as a whole is attacked. She stated she felt the City Council needed to see what was taking place in this area before the ordinance was changed, realizing that this was not possible due to time constraints of the applicant. She advised that Tad Derrick counted 19 businesses in his CAT area; in CAT area 3 there are 12, and from Main to 200 East and from 100 South to 700 South there are eight in a twelve block area. 70% of these have taken place in the last ten years. She inquired where the City was headed and what its vision was for the RCC area. She stated that by allowing this home to be turned into a business the City was adding to the problem, not to the solution. Another question is if government is acting responsibly by changing an ordinance to accommodate one request. In speaking to neighbors of the family selling this home, they say they love the family and don?t want to stand in the way of the sale of the home. She stated she did not think this facility would be a threat to any neighborhood, but it is another home lost. The General Plan states that each decision individually may not be important, but cumulatively they have an impact on the quality of life in an area. 200 North is already 3/4 commercial property, but changing this ordinance will change the entire CAT area. She stated she would not oppose the ordinance change if the City would agree to look at 200 North and other RCC areas. Council Member Bunker commented that while she had the same concerns as Council Member Shakespeare, when the RCC zone was created the City Council talked about not including 200 North because 3/4 of it was not residential property. She felt this proposed location was better than on 200 West. She stated the applicant is not a business, but a 501C3 charitable organization which is different than commercial. She stated she agreed that all RCC areas needed to be looked at. Council Member Allen advised that nothing would preclude this house from being sold in the future as a home. Council Member Pike commented that while he applauded Council Member Shakespeare?s passion for the downtownn, the trade-off is worth it. He stated he did not want to see the downtown destroyed and he would be happy to have one of these homes as a next door neighbor. He stated he felt it would be a good neighbor and is conveniently located in the center of the population. Council Member Shakespeare inquired if this type of home could be limited to only one within the entire RCC zone. City Attorney Shawn Guzman replied that a 2500' radius is being suggested, which is pretty significant. Additionally, the possibility of getting another of these facilities is pretty remote. St. George City Council Minutes April 3, 2008 Page Ten MOTION: A motion to approve the ordinance with a one mile radius was made by Council Member Allen. The motion died for lack of a second. AMENDED MOTION: Council Member Allen amended her motion to include a three mile radius. SECOND The motion was seconded by Council Member Shakespeare. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Shakespeare - aye Council Member Pike - aye Council Member Almquist - aye Council Member Bunker - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit to operate a child-family support facility in an RCC zone at 310 West 200 North Street. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to approve the conditional use permit. 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 the annual Wastewater Self-Assessment resolution. Water Services Director Barry Barnum advised that a survey is sent out every year to look at collection and treatment and report the findings to the State. The City always ranks well. This year the City had a couple of sewer mishaps but is still in pretty good shape. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to approve the resolution. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Pike. 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. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of secondary water rates in Hidden Valley. Mayor McArthur advised this matter was discussed at the last City Council work meeting. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to approve the resolution. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Shakespeare. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Shakespeare - aye Council Member Pike - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Almquist - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. SPECIAL EVENT PERMIT: Consider approval of a special event permit for a farmer?s market in Ancestor Square. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that while staff supports Ancestor Square, financial assistance is questionable. Nicki Richards, applicant, requested financial assistance for advertising. St. George City Council Minutes April 3, 2008 Page Eleven City Manager Gary Esplin replied that funds were especially scarce. Departments have been asked to cut back 5% this budget year and another 10% next budget year. However, there are several things the City can do from an advertising standpoint with existing resources. Mayor McArthur advised the City can advertise the farmer?s market on the City?s website and in the Insight publication. He suggested the applicant work with Marc Mortensen. Council Member Almquist commented that perhaps the farmers market could be advertised on the reader board opposite the Dixie Center as he heard a portion of the advertising is set aside for community announcements. Council Member Bunker suggested Ms. Richards contact the Downtown Alliance. Ms. Pace replied that she would do that....


City Council Minutes 01/08/2009:
... Mayor McArthur invited anyone interested in offering the invocation to contact the City Recorder. Mayor McArthur reported on the prayer over the City held on New Year?s Day at Pioneer Park. Mayor McArthur announced that Heritage Days, in celebration of the City?s 147th birthday, will be held beginning Sunday January 11, 2009. Mayor McArthur announced that a ribbon cutting for the SunSmart solar project will be held at the Wastewater Treatment Plant on January 14, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. Vonda Larsen, Chair of the Heritage Days Committee, reviewed the schedule of Heritage Days events. Mayor McArthur invited several Scouts in the audience to introduce themselves. Police Chief Marlon Stratton explained that in the past the department was focused on catching violators and in many cases the victims did not receive the attention they deserved and needed. The department now has a Victims Services unit consisting of one full time employee, two part time employees and volunteers who work with victims of crimes. They are a great asset to the department and provide a significant service. City Manager Gary Esplin advised there is one addendum item to the agenda. AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid for Badger water meters. Purchasing Manager Connie Hood explained this is a sole source item purchased from Hydro Specialties. She recommended award of the bid in an amount not to exceed $250,000 for the year. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the meters are state of the art and all the meters in the City?s system are Badger meters from this supplier. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to award the bid to Hydro Specialties in an amount not to exceed $250,000 for the year. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Pike. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote as follows: Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Pike - aye Council Member Shakespeare - aye Council Member Almquist - aye St. George City Council Minutes January 8, 2009 Page Two The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid for sodium hypochlorite. Purchasing Manager Connie Hood advised that in the past three suppliers have bid this item, but this year only one submitted a bid. She recommended award of the bid to Thatcher in the amount of $111,000. The price increased from $1.27 per gallon last year to $1.33 per gallon this year. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Almquist to award the bid to Thatcher in the amount of $111,000. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Shakespeare. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote as follows: Council Member Almquist - aye Council Member Shakespeare - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Pike - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance amending Section 9-13-4B4, St. George City Code, to add standards for changeable copy digital billboards. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that this issue has been discussed in the past. The Sign Review Board has also discussed the issue and made recommendations. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that a City Council work meeting was held in August on the subject. The subject billboards are those with electronically changing messages, not video, and there are currently two in town, one in front of the Dixie Center and the other at the corner of Bluff Street and Sunset Blvd. He then reviewed proposed changes to the ordinance. The changes propose to allow changing static images, but no video animation or motion or audio speakers will be allowed. There are 30 billboards within City boundaries along the I-15, totaling 60 sign faces. The Sign Review Board reviewed options for spacing and recommends a 1500' separation between billboards with the thought that if in the future there are no negative impacts, the regulations can be loosened. He stated the concern is not wanting to drive down the I-15 at night and have the dominant image be billboards. He suggested the ordinance be approved to see how the impact develops and, if needed, it can be loosened in the future. Billboards are only allowed in commercial or industrial zones. The State regulation requires a 500' separation for billboards, but the City previously increased that separation to 1500'. Ray Draper advised he would prefer to have all existing billboards be able to be changed to digital. He advised that his company, YESCO, allows six advertisers on each billboard. He then discussed light levels and explained that the lights contained on digital billboards are very directional soft light and are user friendly. Council Member Pike inquired if the brightness of traditional billboards had been checked as some are very bright. Mr. Draper replied that he would check them. Council Member Pike commented he liked the digital billboards as they did not get tattered or worn or faded like traditional billboards. He inquired where the 1500' separation distance came from. Mr. Draper replied it came from staff. Mr. Nicholson explained the 1500' separation is the current allowed spacing for new billboards. St. George City Council Minutes January 8, 2009 Page Three Mr. Draper replied that a 500' spacing is still allowed by the State near on and off-ramps. Council Member Shakespeare inquired if the 1500' spacing was conservative enough, stating it seemed like there are a lot of billboards along the freeway. She inquired what the impact would be from constantly changing billboards. Mr. Draper replied that the I-15 is not straight and only a few would be seen at a time. Mayor McArthur replied that the billboards meet UDOT standards and the proposed ordinance is a place to start. Council Member Almquist commented he did not want to see the day when every sign is digital, including on-premise signs. He inquired about digital on-premise signs. Mr. Nicholson replied that on-premise signs will be the next task to be tackled. The issue was discussed three to four years ago but there were many issues that did not get addressed. He advised that some standard was needed. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Pike to approve the ordinance as presented, with the deletion of the word ?video? in Section 9-13-4 (B)(4) (e)(4) of the proposed ordinance. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote as follows: Council Member Pike - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Shakespeare - aye Council Member Almquist - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution increasing admission fees at the Dinosaur Track Site during the ?Hatch the Past? exhibit. City Manager Gary Esplin explained staff recommends increasing admission fees at the dinosaur museum to raise revenues in order to meet operation costs during the new exhibit. He then reviewed the proposed fees. Mayor McArthur inquired about family passes. Gary Sanders replied that the family rate is the group rate. He recommended increasing the fees beginning February 1, 2009 through August 31, 2009, after which time the fees will be re-evaluated. The increase is needed to help pay for the new exhibit as well as raise seed money for future exhibits. 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 Shakespeare - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution declaring intention to reimburse expenditures from the proceeds of tax exempt bonds to be issued by or on behalf of the City of St. George, Utah. St. George City Council Minutes January 8, 2009 Page Four City Manager Gary Esplin explained approval of the resolution will authorize the City to be reimbursed for expenses in connection with the feasibility of the landfill gas project. The City can be reimbursed through bond funds if it goes forward with the project. Energy Services Director Phil Solomon explained that staff has been working on an agreement with the Solid Waste District to do a feasibility study and test wells at the site. This will take three to four months, and then a year for construction. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to approve the resolution. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Pike. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Pike - aye Council Member Almquist - aye Council Member Shakespeare - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that this project has great potential and others like it have been very productive. Staff would not be pursuing it unless they felt there was potential. Mayor McArthur advised the landfill has only one cell now, but as it gets bigger there will be more potential, and the potential for putting a one megawatt plant there should be explored. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution authorizing the execution and delivery of a third supplemental transmission agreement for the UAMPS Central-St. George 138 kV transmission project, increasing the maximum amount of bonds authorized to be issued. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the City, along with UAMPS, Santa Clara, Washington, and Hurricane cities use the 138kV line to Central. The line needs to be upgraded. UAMPS is the entity who will make the improvements. Approval of the resolution will allow the City to move forward and UAMPS will issue the bonds. The City will pay a fee as part of the transmission cost to reimburse the cost of the project. St. George is at the end of line with regard to transmission, and if capacity and transmission is lost, the City will be in trouble. This project has been planned for a long time and costs have come down. Staff recommends the City move forward. He explained that some wood poles which are vulnerable to fires will be replaced with steel poles. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Almquist to approve the resolution. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Shakespeare VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote as follows: Council Member Almquist - aye Council Member Shakespeare -aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Pike - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE CONTROL PRESENTATION: Presentation from the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. Mr. Freeman, representing the State of Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, advised that he oversees operations of the Department and nothing is more important than assuring that minors do not buy liquor, especially at State liquor stores. A covert underage buyer operation was conducted in St. George on 14 businesses and five sold to minors; one of the them was the new State liquor store. There is an age verification system built into every cash register, and while the clerk asked for the drivers license, she entered it incorrectly. A new method is being developed and the State is looking at a device which reads drivers licenses in one second. The device can also tell if a fake ID is being used. These devices are being tested in three stores right now and the State is trying to obtain funding to put them in all State liquor stores. The State is also looking at additional training. An action program has been required of the new State liquor store manager to assure that this does not happen again. Council Member Almquist inquired if there has been any discussion about an increased tax on alcoholic beverages, such as with tobacco products, to fund the dissolution of sales tax on food. Mr. Freeman replied that this has not been discussed. Sales of alcohol in the State totaled $256 million last year, $94 million of which was returned back to the State. The Legislature determines how that money is spent. The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control does not derive its operating budget from sales. Council Member Almquist inquired about the cost of the drivers license readers. Mr. Freeman replied the cost is $900 each. Council Member Almquist inquired if someone had been convicted of more than one DUI, if they would come up in the system and the liquor store could deny selling them liquor. Mr. Freeman replied there are constitutional issues involved and a judge has to declare someone interdicted and not responsible to purchase liquor for this to happen. The State liquor store is a government services and it cannot deny service. He advised that most alcoholic beverage consumers are responsible and they are seeing a huge shift toward the consumption of wines. ENERGY TASK FORCE PRESENTATION: Presentation from the Washington County Energy Task Force. Curt Winterfield, Deseret Power, presented a power point presentation entitled ?Cost of Carbon Tax?. The presentation covered the following topics: legislative proposals addressing carbon dioxide, cap and trade, CO2 tax, renewable portfolio standards, Leibermann-Warner and other proposals, comparison of cap and trade proposals, putting a price on carbon emissions, and the price of carbon emissions for electric generation. Energy Services Director Phil Solomon commented that the Task Force was established by all utilities in Southern Utah to make sure the public is aware that proposed utility costs did not happen overnight and the utilities do not want to take the rap for raising rates. The raise in rates is out of the managing utilities? control and is a pass on by the federal government. Mr. Winterfield suggested the public should contact their congressional delegation to make certain the situation in thi...

City Council Meeting Agenda Agenda 04/30/2020:
...d ten Apple iPads during an investigation into fraud and theft.  They contacted all of the financial institutes about disposition of the iPads but only heard back from one who stated that they did not want the merchandise.  State law allows items to be converted for city use with approval of the city council after the owner has been contacted and fails to respond or waives their interest in the item.  At this time, the police would like the iPads converted for department use.  This conversion will save the department money.  Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing the conversion of the iPads for police department use.  Staff recommends approval.   3.            Consider approval of a request for a hillside development permit to allow mass grading of the Broken Rock Mesa area.  Located east of the proposed Desert Cliffs residential project, this area is a part of the Desert Canyons Master Plan.             BACKGROUND and RECOMMENDATION:  Mass grading consists of cuts and fills to raise elevations for future development in a portion of the Ft Pierce Wash floodplain. Purpose of grading is to apply to FEMA for a letter of map revision (LOMR) based on fill. The mass grading and LOMR application is consistent with the current Conditional Letter of map Revision (CLOMR) of 2009. Portion of mass grading is within the hillside overlay zone.  AGEC completed a rock fall hazard study and the mass grading is outside of the area.  All earthwork shall comply with Geotech report and all drainage to comply with drainage report.  Staff recommends approval.   4.            Presentation by YESCO for relocation of a billboard on Bluff Street.   5.            Presentation regarding Water and Energy conservation.   6.            Discussion regarding the City’s participation in the Art Around the Corner.   7.            Discussion regarding this year’s 4th of July events.   8.            Reports from Mayor, Councilmembers, and City Manager. 9.            Request a closed session.                              __________________________________ ____________________________ Christina Fernandez, City Recorder                              Date                              REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION:  The City of St. George will make efforts to provide reasonable accommodations to disabled members of the public in accessing City programs.  Please contact the Human Resources office at 627-4674, at least 24 hours in advanc...
