City Council Minutes 04/01/2004:
.../AMEND PD ZONE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider an amendment to the Sunbrook Planned Development zone to add six acres to the project, modify density and unit types in various areas, and include a bed and breakfast or 14 unit condominium building near the Sunbrook Golf Course Clubhouse. Sunbrook Communities, LC, applicant. Associate Planner Mark Bradley explained that the proposed change will increase the Sunbrook PD area to 571 acres, with a net density of 3.75 units per acre, excluding the golf course. The Planning Commission recommended approval with two conditions: (1) the .83 acre site on Dixie Drive be changed from Commercial to Professional Office, and (2) either the bed and breakfast inn or the 14 unit condo is acceptable for the site next to the golf course clubhouse. With regard to parking, there is a recorded agreement for parking and cross-access but it does not address this type of use. St. George City Council Minutes April 1, 2004 Page Five Rick Rosenberg, representing the applicant, explained that a ten-plex of condo units with an Italian villa concept is proposed, with underground parking. 11 buildings are proposed for the site and the biggest change in density will be from this product. All access will be off Dolche Vista Drive. A traffic impact study was done for Sunbrook, as well as a traffic model produced as part of the zone change request. It recommended additional turning lanes to be built as time goes on and traffic increases. These turning lanes have been incorporated into the new plan. He explained that he met with Kent Perkins and the BLM about converting some hillside into a four acre park. This is a new add-on to the project site in order to have some permanent open space , and the rest of the six acres will be developed in low density residential, similar to the French Quarter. The most controversial issue has been the bed and breakfast site, and current management favors the 14 unit condo project as a better use. It is proposed to expand the parking lot and work with the City to pick up an additional 66 parking stalls. This would meet Sunbrook?s parking requirements and expand the stalls the City can use for tournaments and high use periods. The plan at present is conceptual. Meetings were held with the Sunbrook Homeowners Association and Crystal Lakes Homeowners Association, and Crystal Lakes expressed concern about the box canyon wash which flows through the project and comes near the Crystal Lakes entrance and downstream which has become clogged with vegetation and debris. Sunbrook has agreed to clean the wash within allowable limits of the State and Federal permitting process. All storm drainage off the hillside is being collected and added to the wash, but this should not impact Crystal Lakes. Some of the medium density area in hillside crevices will be hard to design, and the density asked for is a pleasant target, but will be difficult to achieve. Designated parking for the condos will be worked out separately. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that Sunbrook has been an excellent partner and improvements made on Number One of the Point have been a positive benefit to the City. Staff feels comfortable trying to work out continued use of shared parking. There has always been a problem with Number Two on the Point with sloughing-off of the soil, and whatever Sunbrook does will benefit the golf course by cleaning up the area, but it must be done with due consideration of the soil condition. Mr. Esplin advised that the area for potential golf course expansion should be protected, and the map presented does not indicate this expansion. Mr. Rosenberg replied that Sunbrook is interested in pursuing this option if a method can be devised to compensate for the loss of developable land, and Sunbrook is more than willing to continue negotiations toward this end. Sunbrook is also aware of the expansive soils problems and everything in this area is built on piers. A great deal of geo tech work has been done for the project. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Paul Carter, President of the Crystal Lakes Homeowners Association, and also representing River?s Edge, expressed concern with the wash. He inquired who would maintain the wash after it was cleared of vegetation. He inquired when the Dixie Drive bridge would be widened. He then distributed pictures of the wash. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that the City would maintain the wash after it was cleared. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch advised that the widening of the Dixie Drive bridge is one of the projects identified in the metropolitan planning process, and engineering for this project is about three years out. Bill Hammons, CEO of Sunbrook Communities, expressed appreciation to the Mayor and City Council ...

...der a request for a hillside development permit for Santa Maria Phase 4 at Sunbrook located at the west end of Sunbrook Drive at the future intersection of Sunbrook Drive and Plantations Drive. Sunhill Homes, applicant. Case No. 2006-HS-004Planner Mark Bradley said he does not have a copy of the layout but there are photos to show. This area is in the City’s geologic hazard area, but outside the hillside overlay zone. Mark said staff recommends the following conditions of approval to go along with the Hillside Review Board recommendations;1. Finalize the Plantations Drive roadway design with staff.2. The proposed roadway right-of-way to be a minimum of 10 feet from the existing adjacent Santa Maria phase with the installation of a privacy wall.3. All walls, setbacks and height subject to City standards and ordinance.Hillside Review Board’s recommendation for approval has the following stipulations: 1) stick to the geotechnical engineer report, 2) provide more detail on the roadway construction itself, 3) the City is to review the roadway information and approve it, and 4) the recommendations in the report are to be strictly adhered to and that a competent geotechnical engineer is to follow through with making sure it is complied with. Commissioner Taylor asked if there is a bond that is put up from an engineering firm stating that the roadway is to be build to specifications. Mark said there is a bonding that is required during any hillside activity. Jay Sandberg City Engineer said the City requires a 10% warranty bond for a year. The Hillside requirements have to be incorporated into the construction drawings that are approved. MOTION: Commissioner Taylor made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a a request for a hillside development permit for Santa Maria Phase 4 at Sunbrook located at the west end of Sunbrook Drive at the future intersection of Sunbrook Drive and Plantations Drive, Sunhill Homes, applicant, with the staff’s comments and also the Hillside Review Board recommendations.

...ember Whatcott, and all voted aye. AGREEMENT WITH SUNHILL HOMES FOR NEW SUNBROOK CLUBHOUSE: City Manager Gary Esplin explained Norm Olsen of Sunhill Homes LC has submitted a bid for construction of the new Sunbrook Golf Course Clubhouse at $951,000. This is a firm bid and will not require change orders. Rosenberg Engineering has reviewed the plans which were drawn by Mr. Olsen’s sister. Mr. Olsen will give the City $300,000 for the project, which will result in an actual cost to the City for construction of the clubhouse of approximately $651,000. This amount is $50,000 - $60,000 more than the City originally thought it would have to spend, but will result in a cost to build the facility of $47 a sq. ft. The City will also have joint use of Mr. Olsen’s parking lots, and in exchange asks that the City allow him to use City property to place an entrance sign to the Sunbrook Golf Course and Sunbrook residential communities. This sign will be for all residential properties in Sunbrook, not just Mr. Olsen’s. He will pay for the total cost of the sign. He also requested an opportunity to make advance tee times - two in the morning and two in the afternoon, two times a week, for his residents. They will pay the full price and will be treated the same as other paying customers, similar to motel packages offered throughout the City. The contract has been reviewed by the City Attorney. The City will extend the Sunbrook bond issue for three years which will generate $900,000 which the City will use to replace bridges at Southgate and Sunbrook, construct cart paths at Sunbrook, Southgate, and the St. George Golf Club, and make other improvements to the courses. Mr. Olsen will also construct the parking lot at his expense. A motion was made by Councilmember Whatcott to approve the agreement with Sunhill Homes LC for construction of the Sunbrook Golf Course Clubhouse. The motion was seconded by Councilmember O...

... Commissioner Burks seconded the motion. All voted aye.G. Dolce Vista at Sunbrook Phase 2 with 78 single-family detached patio home sites located at the northwest corner of the intersection of Alienta Drive and Plantations Drive. Sunhill Homes, applicant. Case No. 2006-PP-016PLANNING COMMISSIONMay 9, 2006Page ThirteenPlanner Mark Bradley said this request is to create a new phase with 78 single-family detached patio homes. This parcel is zoned PD (Planned Development) and is low density on the City’s General Plan. This phase is located at the south end of the Sunbrook Development. The site is elevated in height above the proposed Plantations Drive. On February 15, 2006 the Hillside Review Board visited the site. Staff recommends approval subject to: 1) the hillside development permit, 2) Plantations Drive roadway alignment to be located outside of the 40% slopes, and 3) details of the proposed rock wall along Lots 98 - 103 be submitted to the City for review and compliance with the rockery wall standards (i.e., location, height, and terracing). The wall was not shown on the hillside plans, but appears to be outside of any slope restriction area in reference to disturbance.Mark Fonger presented a new design layout which staff had not seen. The walls will not be rock walls they will be concrete walls. They felt it was not necessary to have a sidewalk along Sunbrook Drive. Instead they will do a walking path. In order to make the site work they had to build the lots up a little bit. Rick Rosenberg with Rosenberg and Associates said when Sunbrook and Plantations were initially described the boundary between them was a series of north, south, east and west lines. When Sunbrook received its zoning there was a portion of Plantations property that was owned by the previous owner which was included within it. When Plantations came forth and went through their initial PD zone they worked against that boundary. The two parties go together back in 1996 and worked out a property exchange agreement that identified the alignment of Plantations Drive and that it would separate the two large projects out there. They have reworked the roads throughout those subdivisions. Council Member Gail Bunker asked about the trail system and if it would be connecting with the City trails. Rick replied it will and they will see that connectivity when they bring in The Lakes Subdivision. MOTION: Commissioner Burks made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of the preliminary plat Dolce Vista at Sunbrook Phase 2 with 78 single-family detached patio home sites located at the northwest corner of the intersection of Alienta Drive and Plantations Drive. Sunhill Homes, applicant. Commissioner Bracken seconded the motion.

This site is located at the south end of the Sunbrook development where Alienta Drive and Plantations Drive will connect. The design of the intersection was still under consideration at the time the Hillside Review Board met on site. The site is elevated in height above the proposed Plantations Drive.Mark said Hillside Review Board’s recommendation is approval of the site plan with the allowance of two additional lots, no pushing of dirt over the hillside, and subject to the Plantations Drive roadway alignment being resolved and verification of the hillside overlay zone boundary.

City Council Minutes 08/05/2004:
...inal plat is not on your agenda tonight stated Bob. It is Wailea Falls at Sunbrook. This was tabled at the last meeting because of some landscape issues. The issue is the improvements that need to occur between the cart path and to the units themselves. This hasn?t been done. Brian McMullin is here to represent the applicant. Brian stated it is not complete. Their understanding was that they would complete between the property lines and the golf course as they completed the homes. Apparently this is not what the City wanted. So they are prepared to move forward and landscape that area and have it done within 60 to 90 days prior to any CO?s given on the houses they have under construction. Mayor McArthur questioned if this was covering even the ones that were already constructed? City Manager Gary Esplin stated the change made was for the new plat. Where they were designing the cart path. The old one was already done. So the problem there, which needs to be addressed, they are going to do this as the units get built even on the first phase. That will leave gaps in-between so it looks like it is not finished. Brian McMullin said one of the other issues out there is a pile of rock. They actually moved that rock over to another project. Since then they have created another pile of rocks and they would like to move that pile of rock into a nearby hole on this project. The council did not want us to do any more grading out there but they could push this pile of rocks into the hole and mitigate the lava pile. They have not disturbed any of the black lava rock. St. George City Council Minutes August 5, 2004 Page Six City Manager Gary Esplin stated that if Council added to the motion that it is their intent to complete the landscaping adjacent to the golf course prior to construction of the homes. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the final plat Wailea Falls Phase 2 at Stonebridge with the stipulation that the landscaping adjacent to the golf course be completed prior to construction of the homes and with authorization for the Mayor to sign. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. PRELIMINARY PLAT: Consider a preliminary plat request for Tuscany Ridge with 100 single-family residential lots located at 360 North and 1600 West. Brent Goodwin, applicant. Bob Nicholson stated that Tuscany Ridge is in an R-1-8 zone. The site is basically located on Sunset and behind Sunset Elementary. There is one lot that needs to be enlarged. Mayor McArthur asked if there was a discussion when they will finish 540 North. Rick Rosenberg stated the first phase will connect up to 360 North on the bottom. They will go ahead and put the improvements in across the frontage of Phase 2 at the same time as Phase 1. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to approve the preliminary plat for Tuscany Ridge with the condition on the changing of the phases SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. PRELIMINARY PLAT: Consider a preliminary plat request for Tonaquint Hills with 5 commercial lots located west of Dixie Drive at approximately 1500 South. Gail Maxwell, representative. Bob Nicholson presented Tonaquint Hills Subdivision for 5 lots located just west of Dixie Drive and 100 South. There was a little issue that came up with the Planning Commission where the staff will have to sit down with the developer and get the location of a road in the valley and where it will tie into Dixie Drive. It will need to be resolved. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the preliminary plat for Tonaquint Hills. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. HILLSIDE PERMIT: Consider a request for a hillside development permit for a proposed roadway within the Sunbrook Planned Development. The proposed intersection is located off of Sunbrook Drive between Crystal Lakes Drive and Dixie Drive. Sun Hill Homes, applicant. Assistant Planner Ray Snyder presented the hillside request which is located at Sunbrook Drive and Dixie Drive. The site was excavated and disturbed during the early 1990's. At that time there was a dirt road put in. The proposed road will follow along that route. The site does contain expansive soils. Three-fourths of the way up is really the subject area. Distance here is where the golf cart will go under and wind their way down. St. George City Council Minutes August 5, 2004 Page Seven Mayor McArthur asked if the developer will put the cart path under or is this something the City will have to do? City Manager Gary Esplin replied staff has a discussion going on with this right now. When the golf course was built in 1989 the idea was to run the cart path along the road. No one like that idea as far as a safety standpoint issue. The developer is willing to put in some money toward the box cove and the City may have to come up with the balance. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to grant the Hillside Development Permit for a proposed roadway with the Sunbrook Planned Development. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. HILLSIDE PERMIT: Consider a request for a hillside development permit for a proposed multiple family residential development (Bella Terrazza at Sunbrook) located within the Sunbrook Planned Development off of Dixie Drive. Sun Hill Homes, applicant. Assistant Planner Ray Snyder stated this item has expansive soils. The Hillside Review Board felt confident to let this item go forward. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to grant the Hillside Development Permit for a proposed multiple family residential development. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. HILLSIDE PERMIT: Consider a request for a hillside development permit for a proposed single-family residential development (Highlands at Green Valley) located within an R-1-10 (Single Family Residential) Zone off of Dixie Drive, south of Sunbrook. Milo McCowan, agent for applicants. Assistant Planner Ray Snyder stated the site is on the west side of Dixie Drive adjacent to the Sunbrook Planned Development. The City master plan does show a plan to tie...


City Council Minutes 01/27/2000:
...City Council Minutes January 27, 2000 Page Four DISCUSSION CONCERNING SUNBROOK CLUBHOUSE: Director of Golf, Dave Terry, advised that when the Sunbrook Golf Course and Clubhouse were purchased by the City, the clubhouse was substandard. The northeast corner of the building has since settled and cracked, the floors have cracked, the foundation is unstable, the deck and stairs are in terrible condition, and the restrooms are deplorable. The size of the clubhouse is also a problem, and the cart storage area is not big enough since the new nine holes were built. The snack bar is not large enough to serve clients of a 27 hole golf course, and the entire facility is suffering from an image problem. Sunbrook is the top rated municipal course in the State, but something has to be done to fix the clubhouse. There is also $100,000 in capital improvement needs at all the City?s courses which the City will never be able to fund until debt service is paid off, or unless a funding source can be identified outside of the operations budget. No general fund money has been used to fund any portion of any golf course, and all options being discussed are within the golf enterprise fund. Neither property taxes nor sales taxes nor general fund money has been used or is being proposed to be used. Mr. Terry explained that many safety hazards exist on the courses, such as deteriorating bridges and cart paths. Revenue enhancement is an important issue too for the City, as is image. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that from a competition standpoint, the City needs to continue to provide a comparable facility at a reasonable cost. He stated that two new golf courses in the area will be coming on line to compete for the same golfing dollars. Both courses will be open to the public. Dave Terry then showed slides of the deteriorating conditions at the City?s courses. He advised that the City Council previously approved a remodel of the Sunbrook clubhouse by Les Stoker, and authorized $550,000 for the project. The low bid received, however, was for $627,491, and the remodel project was not pursued. Mr. Terry then reviewed the remodel design by Les Stoker and a proposal from Norm Olsen to build a new building. City Manager Gary Esplin advised there is a $100,000 difference between the two projects, and Mr. Olsen is contributing $150,000 toward this project. The City also has a shared parking agreement with Mr. Olsen for use of his adjacent property. He is also allowing the use of his property for storage of City golf carts. Mr. Esplin advised that if enterprise funds were used, few of the problems presented would be able to be taken care of. He explained the Golf Course Fund is a break even fund, and a creative way to fund the suggested improvements is needed. He advised that Sunbrook was built on two different bond issues, and the debt could be extended for an additional three years which would provide $878,000 in new dollars. No payment would have to be made until the other bonds were paid for, and debt service would not be increased. $400,000 would have to be allocated to the Sunbrook clubhouse, and the balance could be spread out over the other prioritized projects. Councilmember Gardner and Mayor McArthur recommended extending the bonds. Councilmember Orton commented the impact the City golf courses have on the economy is great. St. George City Council Minutes January 27, 2000 Page Five City Manager Gary Esplin advised that money could also be used from the capital projects fund, or a one-time use of the economic development fund, which comes from the 1% fee charged by motels which is dedicated to the Dixie Center. Linda Kirkpatrick advised that the life span of the remodel would not be the same as that of a new building. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the golf courses have a direct impact on the economic condition of the City by having available rounds. Non-resident play is about 80% of Sunbrook?s usage. Councilmember Whatcott commented that of all the City?s courses, the St. George Golf Club has the most potential to increase its revenues if the suggested improvements are made. Councilmember Orton commented it was critical to maintain the image of Sunbrook. Councilmember Whatcott advised that the City has tried to keep its golf rates low so that everyone can enjoy the courses, but basic needs have to be met. He inquired if the $100 per sq. ft. cost being proposed by Mr. Olsen was high. Dave Terry replied that according to his research, the cost was reasonable. Carol Sapp inquired if there could be things done to reduce the cost of the new building, such as removing the hexagons from the design. She also suggested the project be put out to bid. City Manager Gary Esplin replied timing would be a problem if the project were put out to bid. Dave Terry advised there is only two months to get the plans ready so that construction on the building can begin in May and be ready to use by October. Mayor McArthur advised that the new building must be large enough to accommodate all the golf carts, even those required for another nine holes at some time in the future. Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins expressed concern that Mr. Olsen?s proposal was for a building smaller than the proposed remodel, and the City cannot do without any less cart space than proposed under the remodel. He suggested the plan be revised. He also advised that Mr. Olsen is providing an engineer and architect for the project at no cost to the City. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that the City could also do its own landscaping of the project up to $30,000 to cut the cost of the project. Glen Bundy inquired if the proposed clubhouse would be expandable to accommodate future use. Councilmember Whatcott made a motion to approve the construction of the Sunbrook clubhouse as proposed by Mr. Olsen, giving Gary Esplin and Dave Te...


Planning Commission Minutes 07/28/2005:
...IMINARY PLATSA. Consider a preliminary plat request for Crystal Springs at Sunbrook with 21 single-family detached patio homes located off Sunbrook Drive, east of the Crystal Lakes Townhomes. Mr. Korey Kinder, representative. Case No. 2005-PP-014Commissioner Clayton stepped down due to conflict of interest.Bob Nicholson stated this project is located in a Planned Development zone. So they are not only looking at the plat they are looking at the building elevation, the building materials and other things that go with a PD zone. The property is surrounding by the golf course on one side Sunbrook Drive and Box Canyon Wash on the other side and Crystal Lakes Townhomes Phase 4 on the other side. They indicate the units will have an earth tone stucco and tile roofs and no air conditioners on the roof tops. There are 21 units being proposed. In the PD amendment for Sunbrook which was approved April 1, 2004, they designated on this same area 19 units on their first plat. When the final comes through they will need to show 30% landscaping and the requirement for the recreation area which is 200 ft. per unit. Commissioner Taylor asked about the units increasing from 19 to 21 units, do they have a legal obligation to stay with that plan development. Bob replied there is some leeway. They are boxed in by the given area. Bob said this is a preliminary plat so they will have to demonstrate that they have the 200 sq. ft. Bob said this is a judgment call. Commissioner Taylor said the reason the question comes to his mind is because of past experiences he has noted with other Planned Developments such as Sun River for example, there was a specified maximum number of lots that they were going to develop and they stayed with that number all the time. He is just wondering if they have some latitude to make some adjustments, then that’s fine. Deputy City Attorney Ron Read said the language of the code is, “if it is a significant change.” If you don’t find that significant, then you look just at the area from 19 to 2, which probably is significant for that one spot. But from the first overall master plan they are down density so this spot may have two more units. Commissioner Stout said they might want to address for the record, what happens if each development exceed with extra units. Commissioner Stout asked will there be some coordination on the part of Crystal Lakes with homeowner’s sharing in the cost of road maintenance? Is this agreement in place before the final plat is completed? PLANNING COMMISSIONJuly 28, 2005Page ThreeKorey Kinder with Ence Homes said they have been working and talking with Crystal Lakes Homeowners Association and Ence Homes is putting together their own agreement, that they will voluntarily take care of any damage of the roads they do during construction. Commissioner Taylor asked if this will address the issue of future use of private road. Korey replied yes it will. Paul Carter President of the Homeowner’s Association of Crystal Lakes said they haven’t finalized the agreement for the access on the roads and the maintenance of it. They are working with the attorneys. They should have the agreement finalized within the next week or two.Steve Nebeker a homeowner in Crystal Lakes, said he has a concern about the entire area and the undeveloped area. The golf course, the Homeowner’s Association and other interested folks in this area should be concerned about the development along the river between the two cities. He would like to see the property along the river as a park area. This section in St. George is lacking in green space. He would like the board to focus in the future for green space.Paul Carter said when they talked about Sunbrook and their development they were putting in, they talked about the wash. Since then there are new developments that have come up. Sunbrook agreed to clean the wash area out and the City agreed to maintain it. Now the developer of Crystal Springs owns that ground and he feels this needs to be addressed. Who is going to clean it up and who is going to maintain it?Vince Clayton with Ence Homes said he can’t specifically address this area. But he does remember it being brought up about 7-8 years ago. His recollection is they agreed to go in and clean it up, and that the wash would then be gifted to the City. The future maintenance of the wash would be the City’s. Council Member Allen said nothing has been put in writing. Vince Clayton said no. He agrees with Paul Carter that it needs to be maintained and cleanup.MOTION: Commissioner Taylor made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a preliminary plat request for Crystal Springs at Sunbrook with 21 single-family detached patio homes located off Sunbrook Drive, east of the Crystal Lakes Townhomes.

City Council Minutes 06/01/2006:
...ended approval of a hillside development permit for Santa Maria Phase 4 at Sunbrook subject to the conditions of the Hillside Review Board and staff: 1. Adhere to the geotechnical report. 2. Provide more detail on the roadway construction. 3. The City is to review the roadway information and approve it. 4. The recommendations in the report are to be strictly adhered to and a competent geotechnical engineer is to follow through to make sure it is complied with. 5. Finalize the Plantations Drive roadway design with staff. 6. The proposed roadway right-of-way is to be a minimum of ten feet from the existing adjacent Santa Maria phase with the installation of a privacy wall. 7. All walls, setbacks and height are subject to City standards and ordinances. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the hillside development permit subject to the recommendations of the Hillside Review Board and staff. 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 Whatcott commented that the City Council deals with so many plats, he has forgotten what phases one through three are. Additionally, seeing the single phase on one sheet of paper makes it hard to create the entire picture. He asked for more information to be provided for each request for a preliminary plat or hillside permit. Council Member Allen commented it would also be helpful to show by color what has already been developed. LOT SPLIT: Planner Ray Snyder explained that the Planning Commission recommended approval of a lot split to divide one parcel into two lots located at 943 South Morningside Drive, subject to the following conditions: 1. Provide separate deeds for each parcel. 2. In addition to the legal descriptions that appear on the Record of Survey, provide the City with a separate 8.5 x 11 legal description for each parcel. 3. A utilities and drainage easement shall be completed, notarized and recorded. 4. The applicant shall submit for review all legal documents to the City Attorney?s Office. 5. Submit building permit to remodel garage opening. Mr. Snyder commented that while the trees are on private property, staff would like to see if the trees can be saved. Lawrence Featherstone, applicant, advised that the trees would have to be removed in order to pour the driveway. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to approve the lot split subject to the conditions recommended by the Planning Commission. 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 Blackberry Court located east of Baneberry Drive and Lupin way, south of Bloomington Gardens. Greg Mathis, representative. Jay Sandberg explained that the Planning Commission recommends approval subject to working out the roundabout. The subdivision will connect Baneberry and Mulberry Drives. There has been neighborhood concern about increased traffic resulting from tying the roads together and access due to an abrupt curve. The solution is to put in a roundabout which will also act as a traffic calming measure. Staff recommends that the roundabout design meet City design standards. Mayor McArthur advised that he received a petition from the neighborhood in opposition to connecting the two streets, and expressing concern about speeding and traffic. Mr. Sandberg replied that short of leaving two dead-end roads, the roundabout is a good solution. St. George City Council Minutes June 1, 2006 Page Seven An unidentified man encouraged approval of the plat. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Kathy Wilson expressed concern about speeding and traffic and how the sewer lines will work. She stated she occasionally has to call the City to flush the sewer lines, and she did not know what another six large homes would do to the system. Mayor McArthur replied that an increase to the system would help it move along. Ms. Wilson inquired about setbacks. City Manager Gary Esplin replied the applicant would have to build according to the Zoning Ordinance, with 10' setbacks. Ms. Wilson inquired about the size of the lots. Mayor McArthur replied that the lots will have to be a minimum of 10,000 sq. ft. Ms. Wilson stated she would prefer to see smaller homes as larger homes would overpower hers. Mayor McArthur replied that the applicant would have to meet City ordinances; the same ordinances under which Ms. Wilson built her home. Susan Borden inquired how many lots would be allowed, as that could change the flow of traffic. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that whatever zoning allows is the number of lots that would be allowed. Jay Sandberg commented that he recalled there were three or four lots. Tom Rathbone inquired if the wall that crosses Mulberry Drive would be torn down. Mr. Sandberg replied that the wall will be moved to make room for the roadway. The question is the setback area and if the wall will need to be lowered. There being no further comments, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. Council Member Orton commented that it was obvious that someday the roads would be developed. He commented that the property in question is private and the owner has a right to develop it. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to approve the preliminary plat subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission. 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/AMENDED PRELIMINARY PLAT: Public hearing to consider approval of an amended preliminary plat for The Ledges Phase 3 located on the east side of Highway U-18 at approximately 5000 North. Kurt Allen, representative. Council Member Gardner declared a conflict of interest. Jay Sandberg explained that some fairly minor changes have been made to the original plat: the 100' buffer between the project and Winchester Hills was mistakenly shown as 90' on the original plat, the original PD shows the connection onto Ledges Parkway as golf course, and the site distance area shown on Lots 341 and 342 should be designated as common area rather than part of the lots. The Planning Commission recommended approval with the site distance area shown on Lots 341 and 342 to be designated as common area rather than part of the individual lots. Council Member Bunker commented that some of the lots appear to have triple frontage, and asked how those were being addressed. Mr. Sandberg replied that staff likes to promote T-intersections wherever possible in residential areas instead of four-way stops and culdesacs, and the end result is a three-sided lot. In this case the lots will have nicely landscaped walls so that they have the appearance of two-sided lots. Driveway locations will be restricted as far from the intersections as possible. Randy Deschamps commented that the curved street has a designated park, and there has been no intention to put lot frontages on the face on the curve, and all lots will back onto collector roads. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Marjorie Shilecko advised that she moved to Winchester Hills to avoid city life, and the Ledges subdivision is less than 300' from her property. She expressed concern over St. George City Council Minutes June 1, 2006 Page Eight flying dirt, what the height of the new homes would be, if landscaping would be required, how far apart the new homes would be, and if walls would be built. Mayor McArthur replied that two and a half story homes are permitted, up to a height of 25', set backs are based on the size of the properties, and all City ordinances have to be met. Ms. Shileko inquired if homes would be built on adjacent mountains. Mayor McArthur replied that the mountains were private property and could be developed. Council Member Orton suggested that Ms. Shileko look at the master plan for the area. Ms. Shileko inquired if water trucks were being used to keep the dust down. Mayor McArthur replied that they are currently being used, and the Ledges subdivision will have more improvements than Winchester Hills. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the amended preliminary plat subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission and staff. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye except for Council Member Gardner who abstained from voting. The motion carried. Jay Sandberg commented that there is a 100' buffer strip between the Ledges and Winchester Hills to try and buffer the existing homes and view. This buffer strip will be left undisturbed. PUBLIC HEARING/PRELIMINARY PLAT: Public hearing to consider approval of the preliminary plat for The Ledges Phase 7 located on the east side of U-18 at 5000 North. Kurt Allen, representative. Jay Sandberg explained that there are 41 lots in Phase 7 for single family homes on building pads. The pads vary in size from 4,200 sq. ft. to 8,400 sq. ft. The front yard setbacks are 25', with a 10' separation required between the units. The rear yard setback is 10'. The streets will be public. The developers have committed to update the PD concept plan/master plan, but no attempt has been made so far. Phase 7 follows the existing plan with the exception of one additional lot. The Planning Commission recommends approval subject to submitting an amendment to the PD conceptual/master plan within a reasonable time frame. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to approve the preliminary plat subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye except for Council Member Gardner who abstained from voting. The motion carried. Council Member Allen inquired of the applicant if water trucks were being used. Randy Deschamps, applicant, advised that one water truck was running all the time, and he has been keeping close track of dust issues. He explained that he is trying to find a material to put on the lots to seal them against weeds, while keeping the dust down and saving water. PUBLIC HEARING/PRELIMINARY PLAT: Public hearing to consider approval of the preliminary plat for Fredonia Estates located at the southwest corner of Little Valley Road and 3000 South. Greg Adamson, applicant. Jay Sandberg explained there are 22 lots in the subdivision in the vicinity of the new baseball complex and schools. Zoning is RE-20. The lots vary in size from 20,000 sq. ft. to 23,000 sq. ft. There is an existing residence on Little Valley Road and in order to get good sight distance to the existing driveway, the wall had to be pulled back so oncoming traffic could be seen. The intersection with Little Valley Road is awkward because the property owners to the north are not ready to develop. The alignment is being worked out to get stacking to square up with the existing road. Another concern with the road is there is a quite abrupt curve that needs to be flattened out. The plan presented to the Planning Commission showed a 300' radius, and City standards require a 628' radius. This means that the road will have to be shifted and the curve flattened 20' at the worst location and tapered back into the existing right-of-way. Staff asked the developers to meet with the School District to work out alignment of the road. There is a walkway between lots 13 and 14. Staff recommends that City trail standards be followed with a 10' path and 3' shoulders on each side. The Planning Commission recommends approval subject to the recommendations of staff. St. George City Council Minutes June 1, 2006 Page Nine Jim Raines, Bush and Gudgell Engineering, advised that the roadway issue has not been resolved with the School District. Council Member Whatcott commented that the City owns property next to the parcel, and the School District owns property across the street and to the west. There is another development planned on the east side of Little Valley Road, and this entire area is going through a master plan adjustment. He wondered if it would behoove the applicant to wait until after the general plan adjustment is made as the size of the lots will change. Mr. Raines replied that not knowing the outcome, the applicant wants to move forward with the request as presented. Mr. Raines explained that the trail between the two lots will access open space, assuming the trail system on Little Valley Road is completed. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that approval of this plat will impact on the discussion concerning attainable housing and the entire planning process for this area, and could affect what may have to be done next to the new elementary school. He suggested that the plat may be premature, and that the master plan adjustment will be presented within the next month. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson commented that staff would like to meet with the City Council to talk about the concept, and the City Council committed to the neighbors that they would have another meeting with them. Staff is doing a survey for input and will schedule another meeting with the neighbors to bring the matter to a conclusion in about four to six weeks. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that while the City does not want to delay the applicant, it would be shortsighted to not consider the entire area. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Jay Sandberg commented that he was not certain the roadway was dedicated even though it has been there for a long time and is a right-of-way of some sort. This roadway could be taken out to offset the amount of property which would have to encroach on to the School District property, and this could be a solution if the School District says no. Mindy Sutner commented that she did not have a problem with the request but with altering the master plan. She moved to the area because it was rural and those who live there now want the area to remain rural. Residents of Meadow Valley have had problems with the flies and smells and other things that go along with a rural neighborhood. She recommended that the east side of Little Valley in the area that goes up to the new airport be left in half-acre animal properties to create a buffer. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. Council Member Allen commented that Ms. Sutner had a good point, and there has to be a place for those who are already there. She stated she felt the preliminary plat request was premature until the new general plan is presented. Council Member Gardner commented that there is a focus on a rural lifestyle in this area and there is some discussion about moving away from this lifestyle that is driven from the developer side. However, here is a developer proposing to provide larger lots to accommodate a need, and he hoped the new general plan would allow the opportunity for the rural lifestyle. He stated he would hate to deny the request if it had been in the planning process for a long time. City Manager Gary Esplin expressed concern about the placement of larger lots across the street from a school due to encroachment from kids and animals. He wondered if a more appropriate buffer should be located across the street from the school and animal lots moved further out as there are really no animal lots now in this area. Most of the animals are on the other side of Little Valley Road and south from the project. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to table the matter for 30 days to see if the master planning process can be started. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. Council Member Gardner inquired if the applicant agreed to the continuance. Jim Raines replied that he did not have authority from the owner to agree to table the matter, but as a consultant he would try his best to sell him on the idea. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that it might be better economically for him to wait. Mr. Raines commented that he was sure the applicant?s preference is to move forward. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Allen - aye St. George City Council Minutes June 1, 2006 Page Ten Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Gardner - no The motion carried. Mayor McArthur called for a five minute break. The meeting reconvened upon the conclusion of the break. PUBLIC HEARING/AMENDED PRELIMINARY PLAT: Public hearing to consider approval of the amended preliminary plat for Meadow Valley Phase 5 located at the northwest corner of Little Valley Road and Valley Springs Drive. Quality Development, applicant. Jay Sandberg explained that at the Planning Commission meeting there was quite a bit of discussion about a tail water ditch which runs through this subdivision. Lengthy negotiations have taken place between the developer, the City, and the WCWCD to install a pipe in this area. The plat covers the southern part of the subdivision. The developer has split the property into two separate phases and held out lots in order to get all the details worked out for the large irrigation line and storm drain. If the agreement for the irrigation line is not approved, this subdivision will be able to stand on its own. Because so much time has been spent trying to get the layout for this work, it has been changed from the original, approved layout. This layout is much better and ties into Franklin?s Place and the roads tie together nicely, and grading and walls have been reduced and eliminated in most cases. Some of the characteristics are a master planned 66' road, with a 35' setback and circular drives consistent with other lots which front Little Valley Road. The applicant is looking at it as if the canal pipe is not going to be installed, and staff recommends that a fence be installed in this area. The Planning Commission recommended approval subject to the following conditions: (1) install fencing along the canal for safety, (2) connect 2450 East Street, (3) 35' front setbacks for lots fronting the 66' right-of-way, and (4) establish an agreement to address the center road connection with Franklin Place Subdivision. Mr. Sandberg advised that if the pipe agreement is approved, another phase with four additional lots will come in. If it is not approved, the lots will expand a little and will have a slope area into the ditch. Mayor McArthur noted that three roads cross the trail easement and commented that roads are not good for equestrian trails. Mr. Sandberg replied that this was discussed by the Planning Commission, and one of the property owners was concerned that there was not enough access to the trail. Mayor McArthur inquired about the possibility of mitigating them for safety. He inquired about a crossing underneath the roadway. Mr. Sandberg replied that this would be difficult and is not typically done for residential streets. He commented that both of the streets would be fairly low volume residential streets. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Nora Astin, a resident of Meadow Valley Phase I, inquired about the lot size. Mr. Sandberg replied that the smallest lot is 12,500 sq. ft. Justin Bracken, Quality Development, advised that the applicant has been in negotiations with the canal company for ten months and an agreement has been reached with regard to cost sharing of the storm drain system. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the amended preliminary plat. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. 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 Santa Maria Phase 4 at Sunbrook located at the west end of Sunbrook Drive at the intersection with Emeraud Drive. Sunhill Homes, applicant. Jay Sandberg commented that earlier in this meeting a hillside permit for this area was approved. The plat is part of the overall Sunbrook PD and is designated as low density residential. The streets are 50' master planned streets and the Planning Commission recommended approval subject to the hillside conditions being met, the full right-of-way for Plantations Drive be filled because of the nature of the terrain, a right turn lane on Sunbrook Drive, and a temporary turn around by Lots 8 and 9. Mr. Sandberg explained that this area was difficult to master plan as there is quite a drop-off into the wash area. The plan shows development of half of Plantations Drive which goes nowhere right now, but will eventually tie to the west and other roads. The recommendation is that road be filled the full right-of-way with the embankment to be brought up so it is safer and St. George City Council Minutes June 1, 2006 Page Eleven wider. There is nothing on the other side of the wash and no motivation for the Plantations and Lakes developments to build the road. The City wants it brought up to grade and filled in and full improvements on one side of the road. This also facilitates a right turn lane on Sunbrook Drive and a temporary turn around in this vicinity. Mark Fonger stated that the applicant is willing to work with staff to accommodate the suggestions and has agreed to work out the issues. Council Member Bunker inquired if there were no disturb areas associated with lots 17 through 21. Mr. Fonger replied that the area was already disturbed as it was an old construction yard. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Eric Devito inquired if reclaimed water would be used for outdoor water use. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that the City would like to use more reclaimed water and plans on doing so in the future, and is in the process of working on an ordinance requiring it. However, at this point in time there is not any in place to do so. Mr. Devito inquired if the developer was being required to plumb for reclaimed water as there are already lines for this in the Sunbrook area. Mr. Esplin replied that as new larger tracts come on line, the plan is to use a pressurized irrigation system. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. Council Member Gardner inquired if the requirement to plumb for a pressurized irrigation system could be incorporated into this request. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that he did not know how it could be served in this location, and staff has not had this discussion. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the plat with the admonition to look at the option of using reclaimed water. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that this could not be done until the pressure zones are identified and pressure resolved. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur 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 Mining and Grazing to PD Residential on 335.54 acres located at approximately 4200 North east of State Highway U-18. Stacy Young, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised the plan consists of 925 dwelling units, the terrain is diverse and consists of red rock canyons and lava ridges. There is a broad valley through the center of the site. The project is subject to hillside development regulations and the slope map and limits the number of dwelling units based on slope categories. The plan meets the density limitations. Once zoning issues are settled the plan will go to the hillside review board. The general plan shows the area as low density residential, up to four units per acre. The density is based on the net developable acres - 2.9 homes per acre. There are 14 different neighborhoods on the land use plan and a neighborhood commercial center on 1.9 acres with C-1 uses and select C-2 uses. There will be a 4.3 acre public park and townhome units near the highway up to two stories. The project utilizes 232 acres for residential, with 100 acres set aside as open space. Staff questions the proposed use of a drive-through restaurant and if it is appropriate in this location. 465 townhome units will be built on 45 acres. The sanitary sewer system will require a lift station and pressurized line to take it north before it connects to the gravity flow system. There are issues with the power service and capacity. The Planning Commission recommends approval subject to staff comments. The traffic impact study recommends seven conditions, and parks and trails issues need to be resolved. All public streets will require sidewalks on both sides of the street unless the City accepts a trail on one side. The project is subject to hillside review. Council Member Orton inquired if workforce housing had been addressed within the project. Stacy Young explained the total trail network is over seven miles, and if it is public or private is open to discussion with the Parks Department and has not yet been decided. The proposed high density housing is market rate housing but will be relatively affordable housing in the project, but he was not sure it would solve the community?s affordable housing issue. St. George City Council Minutes June 1, 2006 Page Twelve City Manager Gary Esplin advised there has been no dialogue with the developer about providing affording housing as part of this project because of master plan issues. Council Member Orton commented that somewhere the City had to make a stand and begin requiring affordable housing. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. Council Member Whatcott inquired why the project was developed in sections without infiltrating some low density housing with the medium density housing. Mr. Young replied that this was considered, but not until it was too late in the planning process. The developer is comfortable with the plan and has tried to cluster by putting the higher density closer to the highway and feather it out while limiting disturbance. Mr. Young advised that the commercial aspect of the plan is fairly conceptual, and at this point will look like the Coral Canyon market or have more stone. Council Member Gardner reminded that the issue before the City Council was for the zone change. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that because the zone change is a PD, design issues and renderings of the buildings are also considered. A PD zone approval is a site plan approval and approval of the building concept, elevations, etc. He commented that more elaboration was needed on the descriptions of the housing styles in the neighborhoods. Mr. Youngs presented a few renderings of the single family homes. Council Member Whatcott expressed concern that the City Council is expected to look at a 400 acre project in 30 minutes. He inquired of the City Attorney if the City Council could approve the concept and then have the applicant come back for approval of elevations at a later date. City Attorney Shawn Guzman replied that the City Council should look at the elevations and layout before granting the PD zone. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson commented that when the Tonaquint Center PD zone change was approved, the developer was required to come back for approval of almost every building. This has also been done in Hidden Valley with the commercial building. The idea of a PD is the concept and uses and architectural theme. The applicant has provided this to some extent. City Attorney Shawn Guzman commented that in the past a developer said he was approved for ?x? number of units and would accept no less. If the City Council is concerned about the layout and number of units in the layout, they should use caution if they approve the PD concept as it is right now as the applicant can also make that claim. Council Member Whatcott commented that he liked the overall concept. Council Member Gardner commented that if the City Council had to look at all 15 phases and analyze each one, it would take all night. However, through the preliminary plat process the applicant will have a chance to do the engineering. There has to be flexibility, and the applicant should be allowed to do the work and present it to the City Council, rather than the City Council do this on the front end. Stacy Young advised that there would be more architectural review and style in the preliminary plat, and the total number of units has to go through the hillside review process. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that approval of the zone change could be made subject to the hillside review recommendations. The applicant cannot do anything in violation of the hillside ordinance. He suggested this project be looked at like the Sunbrook project in which a conceptual master plan was presented and each p...

...hillside development permit associated with the Bella Vista Subdivision at Sunbrook to landscape the surrounding hillside slopes located at Sunbrook Drive and Luce Del Sol Drive. Mr. Marc Fonger, representative. Case No. 2005-HS-015Planner Mark Bradley said the subject site is the hillside off of Sunbrook Drive and Luce Del Sol Drive below the Bella Vista at Sunbrook subdivision. Much of the hillside has been previously disturbed as part of the construction of the Sunbrook development around 1990. The soils are expansive. Along Luce Del Sol Drive they are proposing a 6 ft retaining wall which is almost already in. With the retaining walls they are proposing a 10 ft. landscape strip between the curb and the retaining wall because there will not be a sidewalk on this side. Then there will be a 10 ft. landscaping strip between the two retaining walls. Then no more landscaping on the hill other than the rock.Mark said the Hillside Review Board initially visited the site on November 16, 2005. The item was tabled because the plans did not match the site and were not engineered. The plans were revised and engineered. The Hillside Review Board re-visited the site on December 21, 2005 and recommends approval with the requirement to provide a planting plan with 24" box trees to be planted every 30-40 ft. along Luce Del Sol Drive and plants throughout. No water system is to be installed above the second retaining wall.PLANNING COMMISSIONJanuary 10, 2006Page TenMOTION: Commissioner Bracken made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a request for a hillside development permit associated with the Bella Vista Subdivision at Sunbrook to landscape the surrounding hillside slopes located at Sunbrook Drive and Luce Del Sol Drive.

...e Wastewater Treatment Plant. They can pump up as high up the pipeline as Sunbrook Golf Course. There are two pump stations, one at Sunbrook and one in Santa Clara. The plant will be capable of producing 6-7 M gallons a day of reuse water. St. George is entitled to around 4,000 acre feed of that. He is continuing to buy water rights as they become available. PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 8, 2006Page TwoBarry said he has already asked through the Planning Department that any new developments south of the river and east of the freeway include secondary systems. That is just a request at this point until City Council makes an approval.Commissioner Burks said you stated that 45 M gallons a day of water is the highest demand they have had, is that just for St. George? Barry replied yes. Commissioner Burks asked about the water sharing, does the water go to other cities outside of St. George. Barry said right now, no water from the City of St. George is used outside the City except on the regional pipeline. Some of it goes into Washington City. Commissioner Burks asked if the City can keep building like the City has been. Barry said the building permits that are being issued are similar to 2002 or 2003. At that rate he can see the City going until 2012. By that time the City will have to have some new sources. Commissioner Taylor asked are they losing levels in the wells. Barry said some levels are lower. He doesn’t see any long term trend in well levels. In the big wells they try to keep them level. Barry said they are using the wells less this year than they have ever had in the past.Barry said they anticipate Lake Powell to be completed by 2016 or 2020. He said the conservative district has put in a new water recovery system next to the reservoir. It covers ground water. Sand Hollow recharges ground water.Chairman Almquist said the reused water is being sent down the Virgin River, is that right? Barry said yes. Chairman Almquist asked where will that system end up in the area? Barry said when The Lakes project came into the City they first talked about using the lakes for storage but now there will be substantially water for the golf course. They will let the market demands for reuse water determine when those reservoirs will be built. CONSENT ITEMS - FINAL PLATSA.

Case No. 2006-PPA-036Cathy Hasfurther City Engineer said this subdivision was approved several years ago and units 1-3 were constructed. The applicant decided to change the overall layout, and therefore, it was determined by staff that the preliminary plat needed to be updated. A final plat was never recorded. Since the final plat for those three lots that were completed and never recorded the ordinances have changed. The original showed 14 units and with the existing zoning ordinances that are in place today they can only get 12 units. There are some trees at the driveway that obstruct site distance. The applicants will need to address this problem.Council Member Bunker asked about the parking.

D. Consider a preliminary plat request for Overlook at Green Valley with 50 single family lots, on 23.82 acres located in the Green Valley area south of Crown Point and north of Green Valley Phase 4. Patrick Moffet, applicant. Case No. 2006-PP-037Cathy Hasfurther City Engineer said this subdivision is zoned R-1-8 with 22.93 acres. The density is low density. The applicant is proposing 2.19 units per acre. Jay Sandberg City Engineer said there are several drainages from the west and north that will need to be handled through the subdivision. The area has some clay and collapsible soils, and special construction methods will be used as recommended by their geotechnical engineer. Lots 24-28, 41-48, and 50 are proposed walk-out basement lots to mitigate the amount of cutting and filling. The existing “knuckle” where 740 South and 1740 West intersect will need to be modified and excess ROW needs to be abandoned to property owners. It is recommended this be accomplished prior to the final plat being approved by the Planning Commission and City Council. Although a TIS (traffic impact study) was not required a deceleration lane on Dixie Drive is required by City Standards. This is not shown on the plat, but should be a requirement of approval.Rob Reid with Rosenberg & Associates said the street is part of green belt #4. They are tying into Dixie Drive. Rob said there are a couple of old ponds. One will be drained and the other’s will be part of the improvements to the subdivision.Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston asked if the issue with Mr. Renfro had been cleared up? Rob said the last word he heard is that Mr. Renfro has backed out. The Boyer Company is working something out with him and has agreed upon a number for his parcel of land. Gary Kuhlmann attorney for Mr. Renfro said there is no indication that this has been resolved. Mr. Renfro is still claiming that it is his land. PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 8, 2006Page SixMOTION: Commissioner Taylor made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a preliminary plat request for Overlook at Green Valley with 50 single family lots, on 23.82 acres located in the Green Valley area south of Crown Point and north of Green Valley Phase 4, Patrick Moffet, applicant, subject to legal accommodation for the property on the end of the subdivision involving Mr. Renfro and to a deceleration lane on Dixie Drive that is required by City standards to be shown on the plat before it goes to City Council. Commissioner Campbell seconded the motion. All voted aye.CONDITIONAL USE PERMITConsider a request for a conditional use permit from SunRoc Corporation to expand the existing SunRoc manufacturing facility located at 3657 River Road. The expansion consists of the construction of a new 18,684 sq. ft. concrete manufacturing facility that requires a conditional use permit for an associated 52 ft. high silo. The expansion also includes the construction of a 2,400 sq. ft. addition to the existing office building, and a new 3,535 sq. ft. building. The property is on 20.60 acres (897,237 sq. ft.) and is zoned M-1 (Manufacturing). Mr. Dan Clark Division Manager, representative. Case no. 2006-CUP-024Planner Ray Snyder said this request is for a proposed 52 ft. high silo for a new masonry manufacturing building as part of an expansion of the SunRock Corporation facility. Ray said this is not in the Ft. Pierce Industrial Park it is just outside of the area. It is still zoned M-1. Landscaping has been proposed on the site plan and includes trees. However, it appears that the landscaping is outside of the property line. Ray said in addition to the standard conditions, the following are proposed:1) The site is approved for a silo of 52 ft.2) Street trees shall be installed per ordinance.3) No structures shall be permitted within the required setback areas.4) Parking shall meet Section 10-19-5 requirements.5) The applicant shall satisfy the requirements of the City Traffic Engineer for ingress and egress of the site.6) A SPR (plan check) application shall be submitted to Development Services.Staff recommends approval with conditions.Dan Clark with SunRoc said they will make this look very nice. PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 8, 2006Page SevenMOTION: Commissioner Bracken made a motion to recommend to City Council approval for a request on a conditional use permit from SunRoc Corporation to expand the existing SunRoc manufacturing facility located at 3657 River Road. The expansion consists of the construction of a new 18,684 sq. ft. concrete manufacturing facility that requires a conditional use permit for an associated 52 ft. high silo. The expansion also includes the construction of a 2,400 sq. ft. addition to the existing office building, and a new 3,535 sq. ft. building. The property is on 20.60 acres (897,237 sq. ft.) and is zoned M-1 (Manufacturing). Mr. Dan Clark Division Manager, representative, subject to staff’s comments and approve the height for a 52 ft. high silo. Commissioner Hullinger seconded the motion. All voted aye.INTENT OF OS (OPEN SPACE) ALLOWED USESDiscussion on the intent of allowed uses in the OS (Open Space) zones. Also a proposed amendment to the City of St. George Code, Title 10 “Zoning Regulations”, Section 10-2-1 “Definitions”, to define “Private Recreation Grounds and Facilities”, regarding the keeping of horses in an Open Space zone. Proposed amendment to the City of St. George code, Title 10, Section 12 “Open Space Zone”, Section 10-12-2. City of St. George, applicant. Case No. 2006-DI-006Bob Nicholson Community Development Director said this is listed as a discussion item and no action on the proposed code amendment can be taken because they have not given the appropriate notice to the newspaper. The issue is equestrian boarding and a riding arena near the Christensen Park in the Bloomington area. The complaints deal with traffic, noise, odors, flies, dust, etc. They feel their residential area has been impacted. If you look at the OS (Open Space) zone in the ordinance - one of the uses is private recreation grounds and facilities. Bob said they recommend a definition as follows; “Public & Private Recreation Grounds & Facilities, including public and private park site development” . This definition would preclude commercial-type operations under the use of private recreation facilities.Bob said there is a nuisance aspect to the horse facility and the City has filed a nuisance citation against the owner, based on the various complaints received.Gary Kuhlmann representing Delray Jackson and DC Properties, LLC said when activities started on this property his clients were issued a notice of violation. The violation states “you are conducting a commercial activity in an Open Space zone. This activity includes but is not limited to boarding and feeding horses, providing trailer parking, providing storage and providing riding lessons. Commercial activity is not permitted in an Open Space zone.” They were also advised to stop the commercial activity and were told to apply for a flood plain permit. The flood plain permit wasn’t issued because it was a non-permitted activity in an Open Space zone. PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 8, 2006Page EightGary Kuhlmann said the City Attorney’s office suggested they come to the Planning Commission. His clients want to know if commercial activities are prohibited in an Open Space zone. There is a notice of violation which they are dealing with but this has nothing to do with whether this is an appropriate use of land. It has to do with whether it is being done in an appropriate manner. If you look at the Open Space uses, you will notice that three of those uses allude to commercial activity. One is for raising crops or horticultural, live stock raising allows you to raise 4 animals per acre and the other is public and private recreational ground and activities. He said there is nothing in this ordinance that states you cannot have commercial use in this zone. He is here today to ask for the Planning Commission’s interpretation.Bob Nicholson said the applicant’s point is they feel privately owned commercial recreation grounds should be considered permitted. A private recreation facility needs to be defined. Staff is suggesting that it is something that you don’t receive compensation for. Commissioner Bracken asked what zone would be the right zone to put horses in? Bob replied the agricultural zone. Commissioner Taylor asked if this property is zoned as open space? Bob said it is open space. Gary said they will charge fees for stabling, lessons and they will charge for feed and it would be a commercial activity. Gary said the ordinance states public or private recreation area. This would be considered private facility.Darin Snow said it appears they are trying to change the zoning from open space. It says in the open space there cannot be any feed lot. It also states that you can have only 4 large animals per acre. Robin Hanson said this area has become hazardous. It went from two corrals to a major operation. It becomes muddy in the intersection.Darin Snow spoke in opposition to the horse facility.Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston said what Planning Commission needs to decide tonight is if this particular use falls into that definition. You need to give guidelines on what you believe the definition is or should be and whether or not this current use falls within that definition. Planning Commission will not adopt a new definition tonight. PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 8, 2006Page Nine Commissioner Taylor said he can see Mr. Snow’s comparison with a commercial feed lot. He is wondering if it would be appropriate to consider this boarding of animals as similar to a commercial feed lot which is not a permitted use in an open space. Council Member Bunker said this does not seem like it should be allowed because it is a commercial use. Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston said the issue is whether this type use should be considered as a private recreation facility. Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston asked the Planning Commission; do you believe this use meets the intent of a private recreation facility? Just a yes or no vote. MOTION: Commissioner Taylor made a motion that this operation is not a private recreation facility. Commissioner Bracken seconded the motion. The motion passed with all voting in favor, except Commissioner Campbell voted nay. SITE PLAN BUILDING ELEVATIONConsider a request for a site plan and building elevation approval in an existing PD zone, that will include the construction of a new three phase project. The development will consist of 14 residential units, a club house, and a pool called “The Residences (Villas) at Green Valley Spa.” The buildings are single story. The site is located south of Canyon View Drive and between Trend West Resorts on the south and Coyote Inn on the north with Green Valley Spa and tennis facilities along the east side. There is also undeveloped property to the west and south of the “Cottages South” townhomes. The property is on approximately 3.006 acres. The site is zoned PD (Planned Development). The owner is Mr. Alan Coombs. Case No. 2006-SPBE-011Planner Ray Snyder presented an aerial view of the vicinity. The project will be done in three phases. The structures will be single-story. There will also be a club house and pool in later phases of the project. Ray said the City Traffic Engineer will look at circulation which will be analyzed during plan check. The roofs appear to be concrete tile in the renderings. The exterior of the buildings will be earth tone synthetic stucco with cultured stone wainscot and accents.PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 8, 2006Page TenStaff recommends approval subject to:1) Any signage shall be approved under a separate permit.2) Earth tone colors and materials shall be used as represented in the colored elevation submitted August 8, 2006.3) The maximum building heights shall not exceed 35 ft.4) Street trees shall meet the City Tree Ordinance.5) Meet the requirements of the City Traffic Engineer.Commissioner Campbell has a concern about the front of Building A and Building B and the side of Building A. It is total parking lot right up to the front of the building. There is landscaping around the other buildings but these two sides of the buildings lack the landscaping. This is exactly what they don’t want to see. He feels this is poor planning. Alan Coombs the applicant said the green space in front of the homes is a courtyard which is a 25 x 35 grass area. There is a 6 ft. high wall in front of every building. He said on the side of building A there is no landscaping showing. Commissioner Campbell said if you turn the parking on the left side of building A into angle parking it would look better.MOTION: Commissioner Campbell made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a request for a site plan and building elevation approval in an existing PD zone, that will include the construction of a new three phase project. The development will consist of 14 residential units, a club house, and a pool called “The Residences (Villas) at Green Valley Spa.” The buildings are single story. The site is located south of Canyon View Drive and between Trend West Resorts on the south and Coyote Inn on the north with Green Valley Spa and tennis facilities along the east side. There is also undeveloped property to the west and south of the “Cottages South” townhomes. The property is on approximately 3.006 acres. The site is zoned PD (Planned Development), Mr. Alan Coombs, applicant, subject to staff’s recommendations and that they provide landscaping along the west side of Building A. Also that the courtyards in front of Building A and B as well as the other ones actually have green landscaping in and not just rock mulch and fountains. Commissioner Burks seconded the motion. All voted aye.GENERAL PLAN AMENDMENT - PUBLIC HEARING (5:00)Consider a request to amend the City’s General Plan - Land Use Map designation of an existing 730.676 acres of Low Density Residential (LDR) land use to the following proposed PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 8, 2006Page Elevenland uses (as shown on the conceptual land use master plan for “The Lakes”); Low Density Residential (LDR; up to 4 dwelling units per acre; 180.66 acres / 24.7%), Medium Density Residential (MDR; up to 9 dwelling units per acre; 213.81 acres / 29.3%), High Density Residential (HDR; up; to 15 dwelling units per acre; 45.50 acres / 6.3%), Commercial/Mixed use (28.15 acres/3.8%), open space/parks/lakes (220.96 acres/30.2%), proposed roadways (41.69 acres/5.7%), an existing substation, and a proposed fire station. The subject area is located west of the Sunbrook development and the Cottages at Green Valley. The project applicants are “730 LLC - The Lakes”, Mr. Rick Rosenberg, Rosenberg & Associates, representative. Case no. 2006-GPA-003Planner Ray Snyder said this was annexed back in 1994 and zoned twice as PD, once on September 1, 1994 and again on December 21, 2000. Both times the zone expired and reverted back to the previous R-1-10 (Single Family Residential) zoning. The proposed development was referred to as “The Plantations”. This has been seen by Hillside Review Board in 2005. Ray presented slides of the area. Ray read into record what the City Traffic Engineer has proposed based on the Traffic Impact Study which was submitted to the City staff on August 1, 2006. The following are key items from this summary; 1. Extend Canyon View Drive. 2. Traffic signals at Dixie Drive and Sunbrook Drive, Dixie Drive & Valley View, Dixie Drive and Canyon View, and Plantations Drive and master planned road. 3. Construct Plantations Drive between Trend West and Dixie Drive. 4. Widen Dixie Drive to five lanes. 5. Widen Plantations Drive to five lanes. 6. Dual left lanes at Dixie Drive, Sunbrook Drive, Dixie Drive and Plantations Drive. 7. Turn lanes and deceleration lanes at several locations. 8. Participate in roadway improvements in network. 9. Monitor traffic conditions with development.10. Construct master planned road on south edge of Phase III connecting to Plantations Drive and Dixie Drive.Ray read into the record staff’s comments which were not necessarily conditions but merit discussion and resolution.1. This is a significant sized project and staff believes it warrants a site visit by Planning Commission.2. The City Traffic Engineer has expressed concerns over traffic issues.PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 8, 2006Page Twelve3. The request is for a General Plan amendment which is rather conceptual in nature and a “guide” for future zoning decisions. No zone change should be considered or approved until traffic issues are resolved to the satisfaction of the City Traffic Engineer. The traffic impact study has not been finalized. A memorandum from the City Traffic Engineer addressing the project, impacts, and requirements should be provided prior to any consideration by the Planning Commission for a zone change.4. There are natural open space areas with unique intrinsic qualities that define this area of St. George with a sensitive ridgeline, rock outcroppings, and drainage patterns.5. Drainage issues must be resolved to the satisfaction of the Development Services Department prior to proceeding with a zone change.6. A detailed sensitive land use analysis should be prepared. Areas that are to remain as open space should be identified first and then potential developable areas. 7. There should be compatible densities with adjacent developments. Staff suggests a map be prepared to show adjoining properties, property ownership, zones, and densities. 8. Types of services are to be considered and addressed.9. Detailed scope on how density calculation is derived is required.10. Phasing of the development and access to the development. This is an area that will require additional information from the traffic study. The previous plan (The Plantations) phase one would only be able to have an x number of units/lots to be built until adequate access and improvements were made.11. Source of water for the lakes. Need more information from applicant’s engineers and the City water services department. Secondary water system.12. A trail master plan is to be provided. Details on whether or not the developer is going to construct the trails or set a size property for the trails are yet to be discussed.13. Road construction over the washes.14. Plantations Drive alignment along the “Cottages” development. There should be at least a minimum 10 ft. offset from the privacy walls of the Cottages North development.15. All roads are planned to be public streets.16. The Hillside Review Board visited the site on July 21, 2005. An overall hillside development permit was requested. The Hillside Review Board agreed with the concept but recognized that a hillside development permit would be required for each applicable area with the exception of the man-made gravel site at a southeast corner of the project boundary. Rick Rosenberg from Rosenberg & Associates said there are some items on the condition’s list they have already addressed. They have been working closely with the City for the trails and the public concept. They have taken the existing hiking and mountain trails and redeveloped open corridors. This project in 1994 and 2000 had a golf course approval. Instead of a golf space they will put in recreation use such as trail heads, mountain bike trails. They have met with the Fire Department and have chosen a location within the project. The streets are proposed to be public PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 8, 2006Page Thirteenstreets. This meets the requirements of Hillside Review Board. Rick said they will come back for individual zone changes on the parcels.Commissioner Burks asked if the traffic study will address the two-lane bridge? Rick replied the traffic study makes recommendations for the full development of Dixie Drive, which would encompass the bridge. It does not establish any participation costs onto this project for the bridge specifically. It does further point to the south particularly the intersections of Sunbrook Drive, Canyon View Drive, and Plantations Drive.Council Member Bunker asked if they will be using the Traditional Neighborhood idea? Rick said they will in the south area of the project and they will be looked at very carefully.Kurt Lesher a resident said he has concern about the traffic and environment. He would not like to see this change. Allan Trivino said he is concerned about the road near Cottages North and the noise. Rick Rosenberg said the distance southwest of Cottages North and the roadway varies as it goes to the north. The road is up ways to 80 ft. to 100 ft. up in that point. The most narrow point has always been at the intersection of Canyon View Drive. The overhead power poles are exactly 80 ft. from the block wall that has been built. They moved it over approximately 10 ft. right at the intersection and then it gets bigger as it goes to the north. It would probably average about 30 ft. from the back fence of Cottages North. Carl Starr from Cottages North said he is concerned about Canyon View Drive being used as a construction entrance because this is their only entrance.Rick said there are accesses via the Sunbrook Drive on the north, the Canyon View Drive entrance.

The motion carried. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution authorizing the sale and issuance of up to $10 million principal amount of sewer revenue refunding bonds of the City; fixing certain maximum terms for the bonds; and providing for related matters. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the City has an opportunity to refund its bonds because of existing interest rates. Jason Burningham explained that the parameters resolution is the official intent to move forward with the transaction. A savings is anticipated in the interest rate compared with the prior bond issue. The existing bonds subject to call with a maturity date of 2008-2017 will be refunded through a new ten year issue at about 3.4%. This results in a $310,000 net savings to the City with an annual benefit of $75,000. Current bonds maturing now through 2007 would not be called and would remain outstanding. A motion to approve the resolution was made by Council Member Orton and 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 The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution authorizing the sale and issuance of up to $31 million principal amount of water revenue bonds of the City for capital purposes; fixing certain maximum terms for the bonds; and providing for related matters. Jason Burningham explained that all costs of issuance are a cost savings for the participants. The Board of Water Resources has agreed to provide grants to participants for the portion of bond insurance to buy down the interest rate to the rated transaction. The life of 20 years on the $30,000,000 bonds is equivalent to $2.7 million in savings to the City. The Utah Water Finance Agency already issued $500,000,000 in the market place, recognizing the benefit to local communities due to the issuance size and economies of scale. The parameters resolution suggests that the issue is not to exceed $31,000,000, with a 25 year repayment not to exceed 6%. The market is anticipated to be about 4%. The parameters resolution will authorize the City to publish its notice of intent to issue the bonds, and the matter will come back to the City on March 18 to set the final terms. A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott and seconded by Council Member Allen to approve the resolution. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Orton - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. St. George City Council Minutes February 19, 2004 Page Four RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution removing the temporary zoning regulation on the west side of Foremaster Ridge. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that as a result of a field trip taken to the subject site, it is the City Council?s decision that the Master Plan accurately reflects what is wanted in the area, and it is suggested that the temporary zoning regulation be removed. A motion was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Allen to approve the resolution. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - nay The motion carried. Council Member Whatcott commented he felt the zoning issue had not been resolved. It was explained to him that the temporary zoning regulation on the east side of Foremaster Ridge was still in place, and the zoning on the west side of Foremaster Ridge had been resolved. Council Member Whatcott commented that he had been confused about the location of the property in question, and he then changed his vote to aye. The vote was unanimous. REQUEST FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Consider a request from the Dixie State College Student Association for financial assistance to improve lighting of the ?D?. Jake Denning, Dixie State College Student Body President, distributed packets and explained the history of the ?D?. He proposed that more lights be added. The lights will be energy efficient. He explained that the total cost of the project is estimated to be $15,000 with another $6,000 for cement, and asked for financial help from the City. The City currently pays to light the ?D? and would continue to do so. Power Superintendent Dennis Jorgensen advised that the new lights will be spaced every 5' and are very efficient 22 watt flourescent bulbs. The cost to light the ?D? should remain about the same. The site has been maintained by the College. Council Member Allen suggested that Mr. Denning involve Dixie alumni to help with the project. Council Member Gardner suggested that Mr. Denning involve the student body in fund-raising for the project. A motion was made by Council Member Orton to approve the request in the amount of $15,000. The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner, who encouraged Mr. Denning to inform the student body about the project and provide them with a chance to get involved. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried.

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.

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.

City Council Minutes 06/15/2000:
...nts and purchase of equipment are also needed. He advised that revenue at Sunbrook needed to be increased, as the course has been in existence for ten years and the equipment there is at the end of its life cycle. He advised there are significant capital needs at Sunbrook, and the fee structure at Sunbrook needed to be reviewed specifically to purchase new equipment. He advised that many golfers do not understand that the City is paying sales tax on golf fees, and this portion is taken out and paid to the State at no additional cost to the golfers. He suggested a way to generate more money for capital improvements at the courses would be to add the sales tax to the fee and charge the golfers for the sales tax. However, he suggested that an uneven amount not be charged, but rather that it be rounded off. He stated the City cannot continue to pay sales tax without collecting it from the golfers. He stated City courses presently only have two seasons - in-season and summer season. Many other courses have three seasons - summer, peak, and a shoulder season in the fall. St. George City Council Minutes June 15, 2000 Page Nine City Manager Gary Esplin suggested that each issue be discussed separately. Mayor McArthur stated the last time the City raised golf fees, it discussed establishing a rainy day fund to make improvements at all courses. The State then started collecting sales tax on golf fees, and the rainy day fund was never funded. He inquired about punch cards. Mr. Terry advised the City currently has resident and non-resident punch cards. He stated the City wants to provide a rate as low as possible in the summer for full-time residents who help the City courses get through the summer season. The new proposal also calls for afternoon discounts. He advised that the City pays the State $285,000 in sales tax from golf fees each year. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested that how the City is allocating green fees needs discussion. The proposal proposes only one rate, with no differentiation between resident and non-resident rates. The new rates proposed would require that the resident pay a little more than last year, and the non-resident a little less. Mr. Terry stated the punch cards could provide the resident a discount, but that would be a City Council decision. Councilmember Whatcott stated he believed something needed to be done about golf rates, as the wages of City employees, cost of fertilizer and maintenance continue to rise. If the rates are not increased, the rainy day fund will never be realized. He stated he also agreed that golfers should be paying the sales tax, not the City, and he encouraged golfers to write their State representatives to make a change in the law. He stated that while he was not ready to throw the proposed plan out, he was not ready to recommend the plan either as he has philosophical problems with it. He stated that 100% of the burden of the increase is being placed on local residents, and the non-residents are getting a reduction. Councilmember Isom stated she would like to hear from the golf pros. Red Hills Golf Pro Brent Orchard advised he gets many complaints about the resident/non-resident rates, and he suggested they be discontinued and one rate offered for everyone. Sunbrook Golf Pro Reed McArthur advised that secondary homeowners expect resident rates, and with Sun River, Coral Canyon, and Entrada coming on line, the City’s $40-$50 rate is minimal for out-of-towners. He stated that weekend prime time rates could be much higher, perhaps as high as $60, but as long as he has been with the City, the City has tried to keep golf rates down as low as possible and provide the best quality course, but the City can only do this for so long. He stated that punch cards could be offered for weekday play, but Friday, Saturday, and Sunday play should be one price for everyone. He advised that most people do not know the City has to pay sales tax on green fees. Councilmember Whatcott advised one proposal was to leave the rates as they are, but eliminate the resident and non-resident rates and add on the sales tax. He commented he recently played golf in Phoenix, and the green fee was $60 plus sales tax. This was also the cheapest golf course in the metropolitan Phoenix area. St. George Golf Pro Alan Orchard stated that the prime time of January through April carries the golf courses for the rest of the year, and something should be done to charge higher rates during this prime time, especially on weekends. He stated that during the other eight months of the year, the price for residents is fair and offers a good value for their money. Mr. Terry explained the proposal would eliminate the non-resident fee in the summer and offer everyone a significant discount. St. George City Council Minutes June 15, 2000 Page Ten Mayor McArthur advised this would give residents a better rate in the summer, yet the City would make money in the premium months. Mr. Terry stated there are not many non-residents playing the courses in the summer, other than at Sunbrook. Councilmember Isom commented she did not like the resident and non-resident rate structure as she has had many complaints about it. City Manager Gary Esplin stated the City could keep the golf fee structure the way it is and add sales tax to the existing rate, study the issue until September, and address it then as the shoulder season will not begin until October 1. He stated the real questions are if there should be a premium fee on weekends in the peak season, and elimination of resident and non-resident rates. Councilmember Orton suggested the City go with the new rates, add sales tax to them, and be more aggressive on punch cards for residents. Mr. Terry stated the City is not operating in a vacuum without competition, as there are other courses in the area. He stated that Red Hills, Southgate and St. George Golf Club’s competition is Sky Mountain, and Sunbrook’s competition is Entrada, Green Springs, and Coral Canyon, b...


City Council Minutes 07/11/2002:
...g these extra parts on hand will save the greens, tees and fairways at the Sunbrook Golf Course in case a well goes down. Ms. Swensen advised that she contacted the other four vendors to find out why they did not respond to the bid. One vendor just recently located the bid package, one vendor failed to mail his bid, and the other two did not return her calls. A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott and seconded by Council Member Orton to award the bid to Cutler Pump in the amount of $31,494.48. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Isom - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance amending Title 9, Chapter 3, St. George City Code, repealing Tonaquint Cemetery provisions for burial rights for veterans. City Manager Gary Esplin explained staff's concern from an operational standpoint is that it has become very difficult to maintain the current operation with the loss of revenue to the Cemetery Fund. The City's intent at the time of implementation of this program was to recognize the veterans for their service, and this is still appropriate to do. It is now proposed to recognize them by erection of a memorial to recognize all veterans, those currently interred in both cemeteries, and allow the families or others to have the veteran's name engraved on the memorial. The City does not wish to detract from the existing monument, but to add to it. The City would like to do this in conjunction with the veterans organizations and would like to dedicate the new memorial next Memorial Day. This memorial will recognize the veterans more visually than by providing them with a free plot. Marc Mortensen advised he would visit all veterans groups and explain the project to them. Mayor McArthur commented that the City's current method of recognizing veterans does not treat all veterans the same, and in order to make it more fair for all, this new program is being proposed. Ed Hansen stated he felt it was unfair to take away the free plot program, and the proposed memorial project does nothing to help veterans. Samuel Van Horn stated that veterans are due thanks for the service they gave not in just words, but in substance. He stated he felt veterans gave of their time and should now receive something, and to do away with the free plot program is a slap in the face. Mayor McArthur commented that the City is the only community in the State of Utah, or anywhere that he knows of, that provides a free plot to veterans. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the City's intent is to allow the community to recognize veterans' contributions visually through a monument. Further, the City's present policy is not fair to the veterans who have already passed on or have plots in another cemetery. They should all the treated the same, and a memorial will do this. St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Five Council Member Isom commented her husband served in the Korean War and they own plots in the old cemetery. He commented he would rather be buried with his family and have his name on a memorial. A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott and seconded by Council Member Isom to approve the ordinance as presented. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Orton -aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING: Public hearing to receive public comments and review of the proposed Sand Hollow regional pipeline and alignment for said pipeline. Ron Thompson, Washington County Water Conservancy District, explained the concept is a joint project between the Water District and St. George, Washington, Santa Clara and Ivins. The project will bring a water supply from of the Sand Hollow/Quail Creek system to last for 20 years in terms of transmissions capability, and to supply the west side of the County with a stable water supply. He explained that the City's current 36" line is running at capacity. This proposal is to bring a 60" line from the Quail Creek treatment Plant to the south side of the river south of the Millcreek Industrial Park, cross the river with a 30" line and extend it to the highway up across Skyline Drive, with a 24" line from there to the Snow Canyon tank. The intent is to supply the water for the first four years out of wells the District has drilled in the Sand Hollow area. St. George will then expand the water treatment plant and the treated water will supplement the additional growth occurring within this area. Public input is desired for the scoping portion of the environmental assessment so that environmental concerns can be addressed. Brent Gardner, design engineer for the project, presented a power point presentation of the alignments considered and the proposed alignment. Sheridan Hansen, Washington County Water Conservancy District, advised that because the proposed line crosses BLM land, an environmental assessment is required. The pipeline will lie within a 50' corridor through Purgatory Flat therefore avoiding most environmental problems by staying within that corridor. The remainder of the line is within road rights-of-way and through the preserve within the tortoise fences. Environmentally, a route has been chosen which avoids most problems. Scoping is required as part of an environmental assessment to gather public comment about the issues the water line will create, such as endangered species, endangered plants, archaeology, etc. He distributed a hand-out describing the route of the pipeline and requesting public comment. The handouts were also distributed to members of the audience. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a request for a zone change from R-1-10 to C-3 for 1.42 acres located at 360 East Riverside Drive. Morley and McConkie, applicants. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the subject property is located along Riverside Drive between the Riverside Apartments and the R. O. Brown Professional Office Building to the south and west. The frontage of Riverside Drive is already zoned C-3, and the applicants are asking for this zoning to extend to the location of the City's trail. The Planning Commission St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Six recommended approval subject to submittal of an erosion control plan and complete the erosion control that links the apartments to the north with the R. O. Brown building. They have installed their erosion control, so the applicants would have to do similar erosion control improvements. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. Council Member Whatcott questioned why C-3 zoning was being requested when C-2 zoning would still accomplish everything the applicant wants to do. Stan McConkie, applicant, advised the reason C-3 zoning was requested is because existing zoning on most of the property is already C-3, and the intent was to unify the zoning. Development will consist of an office park and will be general office as permitted by C-2, therefore C-2 zoning would be fine. He stated he would have no problem with C-2 zoning of the entire parcel. Council Member Whatcott made a motion to approve the zone change to C-2 by ordinance. The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. Mayor McArthur advised that the request is only for the back portion, and the front portion cannot be changed at this time. He then called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Orton - 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 RE-20 to RE-12.5 for 40 acres located south on Little Valley Road at about 2800 South Street. Joseph Staska/Stephens Family Trust, applicants. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained the subject property is located on the west side of Little Valley Road east of The Knolls Subdivision. There have been a number of land trades in the past between this property owner and the School District, and now there are land trades proposed between the School District and the City. The property complies with the existing and proposed Master Plans. Council Member Orton inquired if RE-12.5 zoning would allow one large animal. Mr. Nicholson replied that it would, although most do not have large animals on lots that size. Joseph Staska, applicant, advised that the zone change request is less than is authorized under the proposed Master Plan. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. A motion was made by Council Member Isom and seconded by Council Member Allen to approve the zone change as requested by ordinance. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Seven The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/GENERAL PLAN/RESOLUTION: Public hearing to consider approval of the updated General Plan and Land Use Map for the City of St. George. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson followed up on revisions to the plan suggested at the last meeting. The land use density table was corrected to designate R-1-7 as medium density residential. There is a proposed revision to The Ledges to address a buffer. The applicants' revised plan shows a series of one acre lots adjacent to Winchester Hills and the JEL Subdivision consisting of a 200' buffer. In the Little Valley area, based on comments received it is proposed that rural residential zoning be extended. Rural residential is defined as anything up to two homes per acre. A person should not feel entitled to that zoning, however, as the City Council and Planning Commission have to look at the site-specific conditions to determine what the appropriate density should be. He advised that the City is hoping to conduct a study to further define the South Block area, as right now it is highly conceptual. There are some minor commercial nodes on Snow Canyon Parkway in the Entrada area and at the intersection with Dixie Drive, 1400 West and Highway 18. When the zoning application comes in, the City Council will have to make decision on whether the proposed uses are correct. There are additional maps which will be included in the published report. The Downtown Committee has done a lot of work and the proposed plan tries to support their proposals. The area from 700 East to 500 East is proposed to be classified as low density residential, even though part of it today is zoned R-2. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Gloria Shakespeare, a member of the Neighborhood Enhancement Committee, advised that research was conducted of the area from 100 South to 700 South and from Bluff to 700 East to identify owner-occupied homes, rentals, apartments and condos, and density levels. Maps of the area were displayed. Ross Taylor advised he and Jim McArthur conducted a study of the area from Bluff Street to 200 East and from the Blvd. to 700 South to determine density and type of occupancy. This area consists of 30 blocks out of 170 in the downtown area. He expressed concern with density as well as use. Within the 30 blocks there is an average density of 45 units per block, which is high density for the zoning. There is a concern about the increasing number of units changing from owner-occupied to rentals. Rental units are about equal to owner-occupied units in this area. With that high density of rental units, there is a high turnover which shows up in the school system and influences lifestyle and quality of life. He suggested that a rental ordinance be adopted. Jim McArthur advised that of the nine blocks in the center section which are R-1-8, not one qualifies for R-1-8 zoning today. With an average of over 40 units per block, the density is much greater than it should be. Part of the problem with West Elementary today is a result of what has taken place in this area. Also, there are many homes zoned R-2 that are currently being used as R-1 homes, and the recommendation is that the homes should be left as they are now - a single family dwelling. There is an opportunity now to not increase the density in this area and to downzone and make it possible for more single family residential homes to be built on vacant property. Richard Mathis advised that he conducted a study of the area from 200 East to 500 East and from the Blvd. to 700 south. This area is largely single family dwelling units with some AP and R-3, and many PUDs. There are 484 housing units in this area - 328 are owner occupied, and 156 are rentals, making one-third rentals. This represents eleven blocks after deducting out the parks, hospital, and church properties. Residents in this area facing a change as the homes age and there is very little room for new homes. When these properties change hands they more than likely become rental properties, and if the zone St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Eight allows, they become duplexes. This has a vast impact on single family dwellings in the area as far as value of the well-kept, maintained homes in the same neighborhood. Also, because of declining property values created by the rentals, residents are hesitant to update and make improvements to their homes. He encouraged holding the line on any upzoning and, where possible, to downzone to R-1 single family only, and be prudent in allowing any new PUDs in this area. Kenton Barker advised that he conducted a study of the area from 100 South and 700 South and between 500 East and 700 East. The area between 400 South and 700 South is zoned R-1 except for some R-3 and consists of six blocks. Five blocks are low density, but one block has high density. There are 142 residential units in this area, with 84 owner occupied and 58 rentals. 40% are rentals, but 33% of those rentals are in one block. The other area studied is the area between 100 South to 400 South and from 500 to 700 East. This is zoned R-2. There are 135 units in these six blocks, with 116 owner occupied and only 19 rentals. There are 108 single family homes, which is 80% of the total. There is a great difference between the east and west ends of town. The west end has become high density. It is proposed to maintain the status quo. He distributed a petition signed by 85% of the homeowners in the area for rezoning from R-2 to R-1. Neighbors met several months ago to discuss potential changes in the area by the College. He distributed a brochure emphasizing the benefits of living in the downtown area. He asked the City Council to zone the area R-1 in accordance with the actual usage. Many of the homes now have young families. He stated that housing which attracts more rentals is not needed, but housing that attracts yong families whose children will attend the existing schools and whose parents will be actively involved in the community is needed. Stability of neighborhoods is desired, with an end put to deterioration that has affected other blocks due to fast, high density development. Rezoning of the area below 400 South would help maintain a quality neighborhood surrounding the College. He commented that there is already sufficient student housing on the north, east and south sides of the College, as well as in outlying areas. He stated residents of the area want to preserve the integrity of their neighborhood and ensure property values are maintained and are not negatively impacted due to deteriorating properties. The City has invested much in the downtown area and this investment should be maintained. The Neighborhood Enhancement Committee supports the Planning Commission's recommendations concerning the Amended General Plan in the downtown area. Doug Alder advised that interior downtown neighborhoods often become blighted, as in Ogden, Salt Lake City, and Provo. The purpose of the study was how to prevent the downtown area from becoming blighted. At the core is the historical district, surrounded by downtown neighborhoods. The area he and Kenton Barker studied is quite different from the west downtown area, as the area consists mainly of owner-occupied single family homes, beautifully landscaped and well maintained. There are also excellent amenities. The area is endangered and may become like the blocks to the west unless action is taken. He suggested that the City Council act now to prevent decline. The area does not now need rehabilitation, only rezoning. The neighborhood can be saved from decline, but if the City Council does not act now, many residents will be encouraged to move out. There are many young families moving in and the neighborhood is revitalizing as they move in. It is hoped that federal programs can be obtained to attract more young families. The Committee commits that they will be involved for another decade to work closely with the Planning Commission, and report violations of the Zoning Ordinance. Sidney Davies expressed concern with the SID in Little Valley and wondered how development in the area will affect the SID as it has not yet been resolved. It is hoped that as developers come in and use the rights-of-way, they will assume some of the SID fees. With development, developers are going to use the access that the residents paid for, and development of the sewer lines. Many of those who voted for the SID did not have to pay into the SID, which overruled St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Nine the votes of others because of the amount of land owned. She inquired about a trail system in the Little Valley area. She expressed hope that the City Council would not allow higher density in the area and that it be preserved while still allowing growth. She commented she would hate to see the ranchers forced off their land by development. Gloria Shakespeare reviewed the maps of the downtown area with the City Council. Council Member Isom commented that she has lived in her home on 100 South for 37 years, and tonight is the first she realized the zone had been changed to R-2. Mrs. Shakespeare advised that many residents do not realize that the zone in which they live is R-2, 3 or 4. The danger with R-2 zoning is that 6,000 sq. ft. is needed for the first residence, and only 2,000 sq. ft. for the second. Every home within an R-2 area on an 8,000 sq. ft. lot can turn into a duplex. As she has researched throughout the entire country, this zoning is almost unheard of. Most cities require 6,000 sq. ft. for the first residence and 6,000 sq. ft. for the second. If the vision for the City is aesthetically pleasing neighborhoods and management of growth to protect the quality of life, she inquired how current zoning and development help to create and protect neighborhoods. She then read an excerpt from a decision of a Utah Court of Appeals case regarding downzoning. The Neighborhood Enhancement committee believes the City should downzone to conserve the value of properties and encourage the most appropriate use thereof, promote the integrity of neighborhoods and preserve and create residential character which is related to the general welfare of the community. By restoring and protecting single family homes, the City Council will also protect the public health, safety and welfare in the heart of the community. Much has been invested into the historical sites, and most are in the downtown area. If these sites become unhealthy, unsafe and unattractive, it will affect the tourist industry and economics. The General Plan states that residents have the right to determine the quality of life they wish to preserve. The quality of life is the same as stated in the General Plan, a city with shade trees, well-landscaped areas, aesthetically pleasing neighborhoods, well landscaped areas, relatively crime free, and where growth is well managed. The Neighborhood Enhancement Committee has performed its in-depth study to assist the City Council in restoring balance and vitality to the heart of the City. She asked that the property be downzoned to what it is currently being used as, high density construction be stopped, available vacant ground utilized for single family development to help create healthy single family neighborhoods, and that a rental ordinance be adopted to help protect single family neighborhoods. Melanie Olsen, principal of West Elementary, commented that West Elementary's students have 83% mobility, 45% are on the free and reduced lunch, 20% are ESL, 17% come from single families, and 4% are homeless. Homeowners and strong families are needed back in the area, as there is an outside fringe element that turns over every 90 days, as it takes 90 days to be evicted. She supported the idea of having the stability of homeowners in the area. Dixie Andrus, principal of East Elementary, advised that right now the school has the perfect balance and diversity - it has the largest ESL population and a large percentage of students on the free and reduced lunch program, but there is also a very strong section of single family homes. She asked the City Council to not allow a change in the area. Brent Greenwood advised that he owns two pieces of property in the Little Valley area. The amended General Plan shows one parcel as low density residential and the other as rural residential. He asked that both pieces be zoned low density residential. St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Ten Mayor McArthur replied that the General Plan is not necessarily site specific and properties located along the borders can change as part of a zone change request. Bob Nicholson commented that with regard to the downtown area, once the General Plan is adopted, staff will work with the Committee to bring in blocks at a time for downzoning, starting with the east side by Dixie College as it is the most vulnerable because of student housing needs. Georgia Barker commented that some of the elderly residents in the east downtown area have been contacted by speculators who told them that if they don't sell to them now, they will have an apartment built next to them. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. Council Member Allen made a motion to approve the updated General Plan and Land Use Map with the changes presented by Community Development Director Bob Nicholson by resolution. The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott. He inquired about the master plan for the Ledges and asked if it needed discussion, as the proposed 200' buffer is in essence a single loaded road with one row of houses. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson commented that the Ledges master plan shows an area designated as "resort commercial." There is no such designation within the City's General Plan. He suggested that the designation either be removed pending a more detailed plan, or that it be called something other than resort commercial, perhaps mixed residential. Randy Deschamps commented that the buffer is a single loaded road, with the assumption that an acre lot would be 200' x 200', and this was done in response to concerns expressed at the last public hearing by residents of Winchester Hills. He commented that many things will be done there and the City Council will see every issue, there will be many hearings, and neighbors will have the opportunity to comment and review them. He stated he did not think there would be a problem with what is intended. He stated the if one acre lots are done on one side of a street, it is likely there might be the same thing on the other side of the street, or whatever is going to make land use sense. There might also be open space adjacent to that area as part of the buffer. If the developers choose to not do acre lots in that format as a buffer, something else will be done in that area such as bridle paths to separate the developments. The developers would also like to have a buffer because they probably will not do the same kind of development as Winchester Hills. The acre lots that would be adjacent to Winchester Hills, if that is the form they will take, would probably have significant architectural controls on them in addition to just being acre lots. Council Member Allen inquired if the developers were considering doing any clustering. Mr. Deschamps replied that clustering would be done in some areas. This is why the developers did not want to do the acre lots necessarily, as that is contrary to the clustering, and they would rather have open space there and cluster somewhere else. When the City Council sees what will actually be done it will probably vary, but a minimum was put in there. The City Council will see any plan presented. Council Member Isom inquired what was planned for the resort commercial zone. Mr. Deschamps replied that the area is the center of where the golf course center may be, and the developers are not really asking for that designation. They are not too concerned about that, and will have to justify it in any event. St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Eleven Mayor McArthur commented that since the City does not have such a designation, it should not be shown. Mr. Deschamps replied he did not have a problem with that at all. Mayor McArthur commented that with regard to the Little Valley area and bridle paths, a lot of rights-of-way would have to be given and cooperation had within the neighborhood. The City would participate, but the neighborhood will have to decide because it is their land. The City cannot now come in and demand a trail through their property. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that the assessments in the Little Valley area are finished and will be mailed out shortly. Additionally, developers pay their costs the same as residents on whatever roads they impact, as well as their sewer costs. Each developer pays his or her same share as the residents are paying now. Brent Greenwood asked the City Council to vote on changing one of his parcels of property in the Little Valley area from rural residential to low density residential. Mayor McArthur replied that he would be able to come back and ask for a zone change on that piece of property. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised that Mr. Greenwood came in six months ago for a zone change in the area and was turned down. The City is trying to send a message that the City prefers rural residential zoning for the area in question. Council Member Orton advised Mr. Greenwood that he would have to show the City Council something a lot different than they looked at before in order to change the zone. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the Master Plan is not so specific that a line can be drawn on a map, and when Mr. Greenwood comes in for a zone change, he can make argument for deviation from the General Plan. But the City cannot go out and specifically draw the line around people's boundaries as that is not what a General Plan is. It is a general concept and specifics are done when the actual zoning takes place. The message is in that particular area the City wants no more than two units per acre, maximum, unless circumstances change that opinion. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Allen -aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. Mayor McArthur called for a five minutes break. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a request for a zone change from R-1-10 to AP for property located at approximately 115 South Mall Drive. Rocky Mountain Corporation and Kent Heideman, applicants. Associate Planner Mark Bradley explained the property consists of 5.21 acres of property. The amended General Plan shows the area as professional office. The Planning Commission recommends approval. Current plans for the site include a mortuary. St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Twelve Mayor McArthur commented that the property in question is a narrow strip and the City is not allowing access onto Mall Drive because it is a collector road. Mayor opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. A motion was made by Council Member Isom and seconded by Council Member Orton to approve the zone change by ordinance. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call 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. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution authorizing the sale of City-owned property to Mr. Gary Gardner in the area adjacent to the Southgate Golf Course. Mayor McArthur advised that this item was tabled from the last City Council meeting pending a site visit, which was made. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised that he and Mark Bradley also visited the site to view neighboring properties. The subject property is along the No. 12 fairway. He displayed pictures of how rocks were stacked on neighboring properties. The recommendation from staff is to have Mr. Gardner stack his boulders and terrace more in line with what the neighbors around him have done. Mr. Nicholson advised that Mr. Gardner is requesting purchase of 3,395 sq. ft. of City property. Council Member Whatcott commented that the rocks were the initial issue, but there is a secondary issue in that the rocks block the view of two lots next to it. To the west of the property is a natural barrier that ties directly with Mr. Gardner's property line. He suggested the wall begin on the actual property line on a 1:1 rate so that it matches the other decor in the area. Mr. Gardner will then not need the full 3,395 feet, and he expressed opposition to Mr. Gardner's purchase of 3,395 ft. as his rock slope extends an extra 27' and blocks the view of the other two lots. He made a motion to approve sale of enough property to Mr. Gardner to stack the rocks from the back of his property line on a 1:1 slope to the bottom. Mayor McArthur commented that a plan for stacking the rocks will have to be submitted to the City. Council Member Whatcott stated that the City would also have to approve the plan. The acreage sold to Mr. Gardner will have to be recalculated after submission and approval of the design. Council Member Allen inquired if there was a way to stop this from happening again. Council Member Whatcott replied that it is City property that is being encroached upon. Mayor McArthur commented that others have encroached on to City property, and they will have to do the same thing. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that this issue can be dealt with when the building permit is taken out. St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Thirteen Council Member Allen seconded the motion. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Orton - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. Mr. Gardner stated that he did not understand the City Council's decision. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson replied that the City Council is asking that the rocks be stacked on a 1:1 slope from the edge of the property, and that a plan be presented to the City. Depending on how much land is consumed, that is what will be sold. Mr. Gardner inquired who would inspect the work. He was advised to work with Bob Nicholson. BEER LICENSE: Consider a request for approval of a beer license for the Blarney Stone at 64 North 800 East. Jill Mayer, applicant. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that the application has been reviewed and meets all requirements. It is a change of ownership. Mayor McArthur inquired of Chief Stratton what kind of response the police have had at the Blarney Stone in the last while. Chief Stratton replied that in the last year and a half there have not been many problems at all. A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Isom to approve the beer license. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that if there is a violation of the ordinance, the approval can be canceled at any time. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Isom - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. BEER LICENSE: Consider approval of a beer license for the Flying J Travel Plaza at 2841 South 60 East. Flying J, Inc., applicant. City Manager Gary Esplin advised this was a change of ownership. A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to approve the beer license. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Allen - aye St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Fourteen The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. USE OF PARK AND FEE WAIVER: Consider approval of use of Snow Park and request for a fee waiver for the North American Flyball Association. Linda Gummow and Jenna Brown, members of the Stampede Dog Racing Flyball Team for St. George, Utah, advised they currently practice in the Santa Clara Park, and would like permission to use Snow Park also. Practices are usually held on Sundays. They also requested a fee waiver as they are a non-profit organization. They would like to spray paint lines on the grass with the same kind of paint used on the soccer fields. They then played a video tape of the sport. Mayor McArthur advised that it is against City ordinance to allow dogs in parks if not on a leash. Council Member Whatcott inquired about pick-up and disposal of dog waste. Ms. Gummow and Ms. Brown responded that when the dog is not being run on the field by the owner, it is always contained, either in a pen, kennel or on a leash. Dog waste and trash removal is performed after each practice. All dogs must be vaccinated and licensed in order to participate. They advised they would like to eventually host a tournament in St. George. A motion was made by Council Member Allen to approve use of the park and a fee waiver. The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. Mayor McArthur commented that approval to use the park should be on a trial basis. He then called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. Mayor McArthur again advised that Item 6A7 was tabled from the agenda and would be heard at the City Council meeting of July 25, 2002 due to a mix-up in City Council meeting dates in July. USE OF PARK: Consider a request from the Red Rock Center for Independence for approval to use Worthen Park on July 26, 2002. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the Red Rock Center for Independence would like to have a bake sale and face painting activity in Worthen Park as part of their march and celebration on July 26, 2002. Mary Herrera, Vista volunteer, explained that July 26, 2002 is the 12th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act, and Red Rock Center would like to hold their second annual march and celebration in conjunction with this anniversary. A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott and seconded by Council Member Isom to approve use of the park as requested. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as requested: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Orton - aye St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Fifteen The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. CLARIFICATION OF ORDINANCES: Consider a clarification of the Park Ordinance and Business License Ordinance regarding mobile vendors selling adjacent to City parks. Deputy City Attorney Ron Read explained that mobile vendors are vending as close as they can to parks during organized activities at which other vendors have paid for the right to vend in the park, such as at the Art Festival. The Business License Officer has interpreted the Parks Ordinance to mean that a park includes the park side of the street, therefore a mobile vendor could not pull up next to a park and vend. However, they could vend on the other side of the street which creates safety problems for children crossing the street. Several mobile vendors would also like to go into parks (parking lots) which do not have concessionaires, such as Snow Park. They are also requesting permission to vend from the parking lots at Tawa Ponds. Mayor McArthur commented that he can see a problem arising where children might be in a park and wave a vendor over to sell them ice cream, and rather than the kids run across the street, they pull in next to the park. This makes sense. He commented that if the City does not have an organized activity in a park such as the Fourth of July, or Art in the Park, etc. where there are concessionaires, it would make sense to allow the mobile vendors to vend on the street side of the park. However, if there is a contract with a concessionaire at a park or City facility, mobile vending should not be allowed. Deputy City Attorney Ron Read advised that the Parks Ordinance stipulates that there be no vending or sales within a park. The mobile vendors' position is that a street is a street, not part of the park. Staff's position is that if a mobile vendor pulls up next to a park, that is vending in the park because that is where the sales are directed. Both ice cream mobile vendors have indicated they will stay away from the parks when there are concessionaires present. Mayor McArthur clarified that the issue is whether the mobile vendors can vend on the street side of the park when there are no concessionaires present, or they can buy a permit to vend in the park if there is a special activity, just like other vendors at special events. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that any time there is a commercial activity in the park, permission from the City Council must be obtained. Deputy Ron Read advised that the mobile vendors would like permission to also vend within the parks which have internal parking, such as Snow Park. Council Member Orton made a motion to approve mobile vending on the street side of the parks, and within the parks with internal parking, as long as there are no activities or concessionaires in the park. The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. City Manager Gary Esplin cautioned that staff will bring this issue back in for review if abuses are noted. 400 East is a very busy street and parking is at a premium. If the vendors are stopping in the travel lane and the children are going out into the travel lane, there is a problem. If there is no place to park, they should not be vending there. This is the position staff will take on this issue. St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Sixteen Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins advised that the City has exclusive contracts with concessionaires in the parks, and they pay the City for the right to be there. If mobile vendors are allowed to drive into the park or vend on the street side of the park, this would be contrary to the exclusive contract. City Manager Gary Esplin and Mayor McArthur clarified mobile vendors could not vend anywhere there is a concession. Council Member Whatcott clarified that the mobile vendors can vend in City facilities without concessionaires. City Manager Gary Esplin clarified that mobile vendors cannot vend in parks or City facilities which have contracted concessionaires, even if the concessionaire is not present, as they have paid for an exclusive right to vend there. Deputy City Attorney Ron Read advised that Herb Basso has already provided a list of parks which do not have concessionaires, and this will be passed along to the mobile vendors. John LeGant, owner of Dad's Ice Cream, stated it was never his intent to cause any problems as he was never informed about the prohibition of selling on the street side of the park. He stated that twice his drivers have been pulled over for stopping to sell. Mayor McArthur advised that parking for extended periods of time is not allowed, as mobile means moving from spot to spot. SET PUBLIC HEARING: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that a motion in Planning Commission meeting held June 25, 2002 to recommend advertisement of a zone change from RE-37.5 and OS to C-3 on 4.424 acres located west of Dean Terry's home at 2121 West Sunset Blvd. failed on a 3-4 vote. A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Allen to set a public hearing for August 1, 2002 at 5:00 to consider the zone change request. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. HILLSIDE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT AND PRELIMINARY PLAT: Associate Planner Mark Bradley explained that both the Hillside Review Board and Planning Commission recommended approval of a hillside development permit and preliminary plat for Kachina Cliffs at Entrada located on Entrada Trail east of Snow Canyon Parkway with 25 lots. Brent Beesley and Howard Sierer are the applicants. Engineering staff recommends that the Entrada Trail area which comes off Snow Canyon Parkway should have an asphalt width of 29' instead of 25'. The reasoning for the recommendation is because of traffic, access, and safety concerns. The Fire Marshall also feels 29' is in the best interests in the community. Howard Sierer explained this is the 11th plat to come before the City Council for approval, and he proposed that this 11th plat be approved in a similar manner. He proposed that the road be maintained at 25' rather than 29' because every other road in Entrada is 25' unless it has a median. This is not done to squeeze more houses in, but to minimize the asphalt and disturbance to the natural terrain. The area is very low density, and the road proposed will serve a total of 25 lots now, and eventually another 15. Most of the homes are second homes, and very few have children. The streets are private and gated with very little St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Seventeen traffic. No one parks on the streets because it is required that cars be parked in the driveways or garages. Additionally, the road up to this point is 25' wide. He stated he did not see any reason why a 29' road would be of any value, especially when it would feed into a 25' road. Another reason the 29' road is opposed is that the road will go through some steep terrain, and the cuts into the hillside would have to be deepened. He also stated that the wider the road, the higher the speed, and narrower roads encourage slower speeds. It is proposed that a compromise be reached to instead allow several turnouts along the road, similar to what has been done in other areas of Entrada. He requested permission to continue with the plans which have been successful so far. City Engineer Dave Demas explained the main reason for the request for 29' was the parking issue. When the Entrada development was originally approved, it had turnouts to allow parking of cars. These were not included in this particular development, and it seemed there was a tendency to get away from them. However, if there is no place to park, people will park on the street which will inhibit the flow of traffic. If turnouts are now proposed, staff has no problem with the request. Fire Chief Robert Stoker advised that the Fire Marshall's concern was with parking on narrow streets which makes access by emergency vehicles difficult. The Fire Department will support Engineering's recommendation. A discussion was then held on accessing gated communities. City Manager Gary Esplin clarified that the first 100' of roadway will not have any conflicts because there is no frontage, but after that 100', then the individual lots front the road. If the project was developed the rest of the way with no access and frontage, 25' would be fine. If they can have pull-offs, that solves the issue of parking and therefore 25' is adequate. Mr. Demas replied that in that event, there is two clear lanes for traffic without the possibility of parking. Brent Beesley advised that they would like to keep the flavor of the area and not have a whole new look on the roadways in this phase. There are no homes in this phase which will front this road, as all of the driveways will come off side roads, and even though there are a few lots which abut Entrada Trail, the driveways will not be coming off Entrada Trail. Council Member Isom made a motion to approve the preliminary plat and hillside development permit and leave the road 25' with turn-offs as has been done in the past. The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Orton - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. HILLSIDE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT AND PRELIMINARY PLAT: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission and Hillside Review Board recommended approval of the hillside development permit and preliminary plat for Castle Rock Subdivision located on the east side of Snow Canyon Parkway at 2000 North subject to the following conditions: (1) the ridge in Lot 148 be included in the no disturbance zone; (2) no thermal heating in sensitive zones with drilled holes to be restricted and sealed; (3) Spencer Reber, Hillside Board Member, will look at rock fall hazard on the north side of the proposed development and respond back to City staff; (4) compliance with studies; and (5) a slope statistical analysis be provided in a table format for each of the lots along the hillside within the 26-39% natural slope area. This St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Eighteen provides actual square footage for each lot in reference to the 30% area that may be disturbed within the lot and 70% to remain undisturbed. Additionally, a traffic impact statement was submitted to the City, and the Traffic Engineer advises that the level of service would be adequate for Phase 1, but Phase 2 may require a signal at the intersection of Dixie Downs Road and Snow Canyon Parkway and would warrant a study at that time. The land to the northwest is RPP property which may be planned to be a park trailhead area and Engineering is recommending that the City's Road Master Plan would be substantially met if a road were stubbed to the RPP land. Milo McCowan is the applicant. Milo McCowan clarified that the protection zone would only pertain to areas in which there is a well protection zone present. He advised that he was totally unaware of the RPP stub, and this was the first he had heard of it. He expressed confusion as to what the future uses could be, or if the City even wants a road stubbed into the RPP property. He stated it was not something he would like to do and did not see a purpose for it. Mr. Demas commented that there is a master planned road planned there. Aron Baker felt there was some developable property and it would need to be looked at further to see if there is no need for the road to be extended, and then it would have to be eliminated from the road master plan. A master planned road runs parallel to Snow Canyon Parkway through or behind City property. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested that prior to final plat approval staff will have an answer for the City Council on the matter. Milo McCoward advised that he is working with Lori Rose to accommodate something to get into the tortoise reserve. Council Member Isom made a motion to approve the preliminary plat and hillside development permit subject to the recommendations of the Hillside Review Board and Planning Commission, and subject to clarification of the stub road issue prior to final plat approval. The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott . Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Isom - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Orton - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PRELIMINARY PLAT: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held June 25, 2002, recommended approval of the preliminary plat for Crescent Point at Sunbrook with 16 townhome units located east of Bellsera on Sunbrook Drive. Scott McCall is the agent. He advised that along with the request, the applicants would like to use the homes as models for a period of time (5-10) years along with an administrative building and sales office on site. They propose that the complete site improvements would not occur until the units are sold and recording of a legal document stipulating that the units cannot be occupied as dwellings until all improvements are completed as shown on the plat. The City Council will need to address whether the homes used as models and the sales office and administrative building constitute an amendment to the PD, or if there is another way to address the request. Engineering has several concerns, including access onto Sunbrook Drive with regard to site distance, and whether Lot 2 should be eliminated because of the road alignment. There is also concern about Lot 11 and site distance concerns. The City's Traffic Engineer recommends that these items be worked out prior to approval of the preliminary plat. Rick Rosenberg, engineer for the applicant, distributed revised drawings of the project and commented the revisions pertain to the access points. A culdesac is St. George City Council Minutes July 11, 2002 Page Nineteen proposed along with elimination of the second access to Sunbrook Drive. The culdesac will eliminate site triangles, and an emergency gate is proposed for emergency vehicle access to the development. One of the units has been reconfigured. The changes have been reviewed with the City Engineer and a level of comfort has been reached. The site is difficult because it is on the inside of the curve. With regard to the development agreement, Sunbrook would like to use the project as a marketing center and model home...

...tion and a proposed fire station. The subject area is located west of the Sunbrook development and the Cottages at Green Valley. The project applicants area “730 LLC - the Lakes”, Mr. Rick Rosenberg of Rosenberg & Associates, representative. Case No. 2006-GPA-003 Ray Snyder Planner stated this is to change the existing land use designation. There was a Planning Commission site visit on August 15th. The current proposal is to amend the general plat to different densities. Ray stated the Traffic Study comments and staff’s comments as follows;Traffic Study: An updated T.I.S. (Traffic Impact Study) was submitted to City staff on Tuesday, August 1, 2006. A copy of the executive summary from this report is attached to this staff report. The City Traffic Engineer has yet to review and comment upon the applicant’s T.I.S. The following are key items from this summary;1. Extend Canyon View Drive.2. Traffic Signals at Dixie Drive & Sunbrook Drive, Dixie Drive & Valley View, Dixie Drive & Canyon View, and Dixie Drive & Plantations Drive.3. Construct Plantations Drive between Trend West and Dixie Drive.4. Widen Dixie Drive to five lanes.5. Widen Plantations Drive to five lanes.6. Traffic Signals at Plantations Drive & Canyon View Drive and Master Planned road & Dixie Drive.7. Dual left lanes at Dixie Drive & Sunbrook Drive and Dixie Drive & Plantations Drive.8. Turn lanes and deceleration lanes at several locations.9. Participate in roadway improvements in network.10. Monitor traffic conditions with development.11. Construct master planned road on south edge of Phase III connecting to Plantations Drive & Dixie Drive.PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 22, 2006Page SevenStaff Comments:1. This is a significant size project and staff believes it warrants a site visit by the Planning Commission.2. The City Traffic Engineer has expressed concerns over traffic issues. See attached memo dated July 7, 2006. (Note new T.I.S., to be reviewed and commented upon).3. The request is for a General Plan amendment which is rather conceptual in nature and a “guide” for future zoning decisions. No zone change should be considered or approved until traffic issues are resolved to the satisfaction of the city traffic engineer. The traffic impact study has not been finalized. A memorandum from the City Traffic Engineer addressing the project, impacts, and requirements should be provided prior to any consideration by the Planning Commission for a zone change.4. There are natural open space areas with unique intrinsic qualities that define this area of St. George with a sensitive ridge line, rock outcropping, and drainage patterns.5. Drainage issues must be resolved to the satisfaction of the Development Services Department prior to proceeding with a zone change.6. A detailed sensitive land use analysis should be prepared. Areas that are to remain as open space should be identified first and then potential developable areas (i.e. site specific, cluster housing, etc.)7. There should be compatible densities with adjacent developments. Staff suggests a map be prepared to show adjoining properties, property ownership, zones, and densities. For example, the Cottages North combined density is 7.2 dwelling units per acre. The proposal across the street is 15 dwelling units per acre. The Sunbrook development has both low density (less than 4 d.u./acre) and medium single family densities (6 d.u./ac) along Plantations Drive.8. Types of services are to be considered and addressed (i.e. additional church sites, fire station, school sites, etc.).9. Detailed scope on how density calculation is derived (i.e. hillside, wash, lake areas, etc.) is required.10. Phasing of the development and access to the development. This is an area that will require additional information from the traffic study. The previous plan (The Plantations) phase one would only be able to have an x number of units/lots to be built until adequate access and improvements were made.11. Source of water for the lakes. Need more information from applicant’s engineers and the city water services department. Secondary water system.12. A trail master plan is to be provided. Details on whether or not the developer is going to construct the trails or set a side property for the trails is yet to be discussed.13. Road construction over the washes.PLANNING COMMISSIONAugust 22, 2006Page Eight14. Plantations Drive alignment along the “Cottages” development. There should be a t least a minimum 10ft. Offset from the privacy walls of the Cottages North development.15. All roads are planned to be public streets.16. The Hillside Review Board visited the site on July 21, 2005. An overall hillside development permit was requested. The Hillside Review Board agreed with the concept but recognized that a hillside development permit would be required for each applicable area with the exception of the man-made gravel site at southeast corner of the project boundary.MOTION: Commissioner Bracken made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a request to amend the City’s General Plan - Land Use Map designation of an existing 730.676 acres of Low Density Residential (LDR) land use to following proposed land uses (as shown on the conceptual land use master plan for “The Lakes”); Low Density Residential (LDR; up to 4 dwelling units per acres; 180.66 acres / 24.7%), Medium Density Residential (MDR; up to 9 units per acre; 213.81 acres / 29.3%), High Density Residential (HDR; up to 15 dwelling units per acre; 45.50 acres / 6.3%), Commercial / Mixed use (28.15 acres / 3.8%), open space / parks / lakes (220.96 acres) / 30.2%), proposed roadways (41.69 acres / 5.7%), an existing substation and a proposed fire station.

City Council Minutes 12/06/2012:
... design and construction of river armoring on the Santa Clara River in the Sunbrook Golf course area. Consider approval of a professional services agreement with Rosenberg Associates for the design, engineering, permitting and construction management services for the Millcreek Generation Facility Hazard Mitigation Grant Program Erosion Protection Project. Purchasing Manager Connie Hood advised the request is for the City’s portion for the design and construction management services for the Sunbrook Golf/Monterey Subdivision HMGP in the amount of $51,425.00. City Manager Gary Esplin explained after an emergency is declared in the State, the funds spent in the State go to a fund for mitigation which is administered by the State with approval from FEMA. In certain situations agencies can apply for a mitigation grant. The City applied for mitigation efforts at Sunbrook to protect the homes that are adjacent to the number one hole at Black Rock and have also applied for a mitigation grant to do some improvements adjacent to the Millcreek Generation Plant to protect the facility from erosion from the Virgin River. The grants were awarded and Rick Rosenberg is working to complete the design. Mayor McArthur gave kudos to the City’s financial team. Councilmember Almquist inquired what the City’s match was. Councilmember Pike stated the match was $12,856.00 on this contract. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that amount is correct and will be paid out of two funds, the electric generation fund and the flood fund generated by the utility fees. Councilmember Bunker asked if that amount is what needs to be approved and why was the $51,425.00 on the agenda. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that although the cost of the total project is $357,057.00 the City’s portion is $12,856.00. He asked Rick Rosenberg to confirm. Mr. Rosenberg stated the City’s portion is the 25 percent. City Manager Gary Esplin stated his understanding is that the City is responsible for 25 percent of the FEMA project. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Bunker to approve bid as recommended in the amount of $12,856.00. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. Councilmember Almquist inquired if this agreement is for design work only. Ms. Hood explained the agreement is for construction management and design. Councilmember Almquist asked Mr. Rosenberg if the design would be similar to that of the turn near the bridge in the area between Southgate Golf Course and Tonaquint Park. He also inquired about the armoring and whether it will remain at the current river depth. Mr. Rosenberg stated the design would be similar and that the armoring is approximately 8 feet in the ground from where the slope changes. Councilmember Almquist inquired if the design is similar to the redesign of the sewer near the Virgin River. He asked if the channel is eroding or staying about the same and if 8 feet was sufficient. St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Four Mr. Rosenberg stated the channel fluctuates. He explained the Santa Clara River is a sand bed river and as it floods, sediment moves through the river system. The 8 foot depth is about as deep as it could be. Councilmember Almquist asked if vertical gabian baskets will be used in the design. Mr. Rosenberg answered yes, the design includes gabian baskets as well as enclosed rock. Councilmember Almquist inquired if gabian baskets will also be used in the up slope protection area. Mr. Rosenberg explained a thinner basket called a reno mattress will be used on the slope and has NRCS riprap underneath. Councilmember Almquist stated that design is similar to what was put in at Zion National Park 50 years ago. Mr. Rosenberg stated he has seen gabian walls in the Virgin River as well. Councilmember Almquist inquired if the same design will be used at Millcreek. Mr. Rosenberg stated Millcreek is only a rock riprap. He explained gabian baskets are mitigation upgrades. When FEMA comes in to do a repair, and the funds are available gabian baskets are used. All of the Santa Clara projects were done using gabian baskets, however the Virgin River project did not use them except in critical areas near homes and trails. The Millcreek project will use a similar MRCS design. Councilmember Almquist asked what size of rock will be used. Mr. Rosenberg stated the rock will be a D50 of 24 inch so it has rock from 40 inches to a foot in the gradation. Councilmember Hughes arrived. Mr. Rosenberg explained the slope is prepared using filter cloth so that soil does not migrate through the fabric and rock. Councilmember Almquist inquired if the design could include a segment of approximately 30 feet to include large rock near where the Virgin River meets the wall. Mr. Rosenberg stated in order to keep the flow from getting behind the wall, the rock in turned perpendicular to the bank and large rock is used on the bottom. Councilmember Almquist stated the river can move rocks no matter the size. He asked City Manager Gary Esplin if the City owned the large lava rocks that are just off Riverside Drive. Mayor McArthur stated the rocks were located on the former Gary Pierce property. City Manager Gary Esplin stated the City does own the rock. Councilmember Almquist asked Mr. Rosenberg if those rocks would be used. Mr. Rosenberg explained that while large rock provides great protection small rock is needed to fill in gaps. City Manager Gary Esplin clarified there are two contracts. The costs listed on the agenda are for the total cost of the project, Millcreek at $63,770 and Sunbrook at $51,425. Although the Council has approved the City’s match of 25 percent, the entire contract has to be approved. Mayor McArthur stated Councilmember Bunker will need to change her motion to the correct amount and that both contracts can be included. Councilmember Bunker inquired if the motion could be changed to the correct amount. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the Council needs to approve the two mitigation HMGP grant projects to Rosenberg for the stipulated amounts including the City’s 25 percent match. St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Five AMENDED MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Bunker to amend the motion to reflect the entire amount including the City’s 25 percent on both items. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. STAFF REPORT: Presentation of the annual fiscal year audit. Steve Palmer with Hinton Burdock who has assisted with the City audit for approximately 10 years formally announced a successful completion. As in all previous audits, the City has been issued an unqualified audit and in their opinion, all of the City’s financial statements are materially correct. In addition, they have issued an unqualified opinion on the City’s compliance with federal and state requirements. He explained when an audit if found unqualified, that means there are no issues. He stated the financial statements will be sent to the State of Utah as well as the Federal Audit Clearing House. He thanked the City’s finance personnel and Council for allowing them to be of service to the City. Mayor McArthur stated he appreciated the City’s financial team. Councilmember Bunker commented she appreciates the audit. It is rewarding to have a clean bill of health for the City. LIQUOR LICENSE: Consider approval of a club liquor license for the St. George Dixie Elks at 630 West 1250 North. Thomas Franklin Auffhammer, applicant. Mayor McArthur advised that the request is not for a new license just a change of license holder. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to approve the liquor license. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. SPECIAL EVENT PERMIT: Consider a request for waiver of a special event fee for a radio control flying event. Darrel Jensen, St. George War Birds, applicant. Business License Specialist Shiloh Kirkland advised there will be 2 events held near the Wastewater Treatment Plant on February 21-24, 2013 and October 18-19, 2013. Mayor McArthur stated last year Council talked about approving an entire year. The property being used is next to BLM. Councilmember Almquist stated this event has never caused issues in the past and will have sufficient parking. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Almquist to approve the fee waiver. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Hughes. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Six The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the only issue has been with RV parking overnight. The City will monitor that and will work with the individuals. SPECIAL EVENT PERMIT: Consider approval of a special event permit for a zip line. Bryce Payne, applicant. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the permit was approved last year. Since this is a deviation from normal business, staff felt like the request needed to go before Council. He asked the applicant to make his presentation. Bryce Payne, applicant, explained the zip line was in place in April and May of this year and has been taken to various large events around the country. He would like to continue to bring the zip line to the City during gaps in their schedule, however it is cost prohibitive because of the fees. He would like to find a way to alleviate a portion of the fees by getting a fee waiver or reduction. The cost to run the zip line is approximately $6,000 for the event fee and $3,000 for taxes. He stated Washington City has a permit fee of $50. Councilmember Bunker inquired how long the event would last. Mr. Payne stated he would like to have the zip line in place from now until February 8, 2013. Councilmember Bunker commented the zip line seems like so much fun on property that does not have much use. She inquired if there was another category this would fit rather than a special event. City Manager Gary Esplin responded there was not another category. Mr. Payne stated the zip line has received incredible reviews and they were asked to bring it back again; however, they lost money the last time. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the Council can deal with fees. The business does not have a location, nor does it have property taxes like a normal business. Fees can be approved each year at whatever amount Council sees fit, however, Council cannot approve the zip line to return every year, the request needs to reviewed each year. He stated a special category can be set to change the fee to an annual fee. Under the existing ordinance, since this type of business is a transient, it can only fit into this category and is limited to hold so many events per year. Mayor McArthur inquired if Council could approve the request to get the applicant started and revisit the fee issues after some research. City Manager Gary Esplin stated he believes that can be done, however by the time a study is done the event will be over. In the past the City charged the applicant $75 per day. Council can set a different amount. Mayor McArthur asked the applicant about the fee in Washington City. Mr. Payne stated Washington City charges a one time special event fee of $50. City Attorney Shawn Guzman arrived. Councilmember Hughes asked the applicant what he would like to see be done regarding fees and when the event can take place. Mr. Payne explained to be cost effective, the zip line needs to be in place for a couple of months. Currently, the standard fee is $150, last time they were here Council reduced the fee to $75 per day, which is still cost prohibitive. He would like a fee waiver or a set flat amount. Mayor McArthur inquired how much the applicant had to pay last year. Mr. Payne replied they paid $3,000. Councilmember Bunker stated she would like to see a set fee if possible. The City does not receive anything from the property and does not have to do much other than have the Police Department monitor the area. St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Seven Mr. Payne explained they set up the zip line and they have insurance. Ms. Kirkland stated Mr. Payne would like to pay the fee on a weekly basis. The consensus of the Council is that would be fine MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Bunker to approve the special event permit at a rate of $50 per day to be paid weekly. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. SET PUBLIC HEARINGS: City Planner Ray Snyder advised that the Planning Commission recommends public hearings be scheduled for December 20,2012 to consider a zone change request from PD-R to R-1-10 on 32.92 acres located west of Pioneer Road and southwest of the Las Colinas Phases 1 through 4 subdivisions. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to set the public hearings as recommended. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. FINAL PLAT: Todd Jacobsen presented the final plat for Desert Willow Phase 1 to create a 17 lot single family subdivision on 12.86 acres. The property is zoned R-1-8 and is located at 360 North Street and Westridge Drive. Mayor McArthur asked Council for a motion to approve and allow him to sign the final plat. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to approve the final plat and authorize Mayor McArthur to sign. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PRELIMINARY PLAT: Todd Jacobsen presented the preliminary plat for Sun River Phase 32 to create a 34 unit single family residential subdivision on 12.86 acres and is located northwest of Whitestone Drive and Grapevine Drive. Density is 2.46 dwelling per acre and zoning is PD-R. The general plan calls this a low density residential area. Because of the existing topography, the developer is proposing a number of rock walls that vary in height from 6 to 7 feet. In addition, the interior streets in this subdivision will be 30 foot private roadways. The developer will be required to provide a drainage channel at the top of these walls to collect runoff from the hillsides. Mayor McArthur asked if this is in the gated area. Mr. Jacobsen stated it is not in the gated area, however, it is nearby. St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Eight Councilmember Bunker inquired if the walls are retaining walls and will they be in the back of the property. Mr. Jacobsen stated the walls will be retaining walls and are will be in the back of the property. Scott McCall with Sun River explained the retaining walls will range from 4 to 8 feet tucked into the hillside and will be on both sides. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to approve the preliminary plat as stated. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit for an RV storage facility at 227 West 700 South. Denis Lyman, applicant. City Planner Ray Snyder explained the applicant is requesting to add an outdoor RV storage facility to an existing self storage facility. Zoning is C-3. He presented a slide show which details the area the applicant is wanting to develop. The site plan includes an improved asphalt area, covered canopy areas and landscaping including retaining walls. Mayor McArthur inquired about the height of the walls. Mr. Snyder explained the applicant will be expanding their storage facility business by creating covered outside storage with an emphasis on motor homes. There will be a 6 foot wrought iron fence around the perimeter. Landscaping and color scheme will be similar to that of the existing storage building. The applicant has requested not to develop the road, he is proposing to merge properties together. Along the public street, there will be two 8 foot block retaining walls as well as a 4 foot planter and will have an easement area where the right of way ends. Mayor McArthur inquired if the slope was a natural slope. Mr. Snyder stated he believes it is a natural slope. Mayor McArthur expressed concern because property owners in the area are trying to create a special improvement district since the hill is moving. He wants to make sure what is developed in that area will be stable. Mr. Snyder stated staff is comfortable with this area. A pad has already been cleared. He will bring photographs and have the applicant address the geo-technical nature. Councilmember Pike inquired if the toe of the hill will be cut into. Mr. Snyder replied no. He presented additional pictures depicting the existing storage facility as well as the proposed landscaping, block walls and wrought iron fence. Planning Commission talked about aesthetics of screening and would like the trees to be taller. One option would be to add shrubs, but that may not be a reality since the area is only 4 feet wide. The applicant is requesting to reduce the public utilities easement to 10 feet rather than the 15 feet required. Another item brought up at the Planning Commission meeting was timing of the project. A citizen spoke at the Planning Commission regarding his concerns about erosion near the St. George Shuttle. Planning Commission recommends approval with the following conditions: (1) Landscaping; trees and shrubs shall be installed dense enough to help screen the view of the RV’s from Bluff Street. This shall be verified on the landscaping and irrigations plans submitted during the civil engineering plan check process by staff. Option 1 = trees to be located at lower level as submitted, Option 2 = trees to be located at highest terraced (shelf) level. (2) Erosion Control - Landscaping; erosion control shall be installed to protect the hillside immediately below the landscaped area. This shall be verified on the landscaping and irrigation plans submitted during the civil engineering plan check process by staff. (3) Erosion Control - Site; a drainage report shall be submitted as a part of the civil St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Nine engineering plan check process and verified to be compliant by staff. A storm drainage system shall be designed to drain away storm water to the north in a detention system that will discharge into the Bluff Street storm drain system. (4) Fencing; fencing shall consist of either wrought iron decorative fence or a masonry wall. This shall be verified during the plan check process by staff. (5) Lot Merger; the lots shall be legally merged (the RV covered parking shall become part of the existing improved Monster Storage facility). This merger will provide a business office and will negate the need to improve the roadway in front of the property. The merger shall be completed and recorded before any permitting approval (construction plans or building permit). (6) Access; access shall be through the existing Monster Storage site. (7) Subgrade; the site shall be graded into the subgrade to accommodate the future roadway. (8) Delayed Improvement Agreement; the applicant shall provide for review and approval by the City Attorney’s office a delayed improvement agreement for road and utility improvements. Mr. Snyder read a portion of the findings. Reid Pope, project engineer, explained with regard to the landscaping, they would like to cut the utility easement down to 10 feet to allow for wider planters. Councilmember Pike inquired if Mr. Pope was talking about the rear of the property. Mr. Pope stated he was not talking about the rear of the property, and explained the City allows a 15 foot easement but does not allow block walls in that area. Mr. Snyder showed the picture of the area Mr. Pope was talking about. Councilmember Almquist stated the problem with putting landscaping down below is the public utilities. He inquired about the public utilities shown in the plans. Mr. Pope explained they will have power and telephone conduits. Councilmember Almquist inquired if there were any utilities in the roadway. He stated the road could accommodate some utilities if needed. Mr. Pope stated that normally power is outside of a roadway. Councilmember Almquist stated that the copy of the plans given to Council show 3 planters and believes that will be sufficient. Tall, skinny plants will hide the view of the motor homes. Mayor McArthur inquired if City staff looked into cutting the easement down to 10 feet. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that he does not believe staff looked into that. Mr. Snyder stated that this request came up just prior to the meeting. He did not have a chance to conduct any research; he would have to check City code. Mayor McArthur advised this request may need to be revisited. He is concerned this area will have issues with the hill slipping as this has happened down the road. He stated the slope is still quite steep. Mr. Pope explained AGEC is working on a plan and will have geogrid approximately every two feet. Councilmember Almquist inquired if they will be using 3000 pound blocks and if geogrid will be placed inside. Mr. Pope stated yes they will be 3000 pound blocks. Councilmember Almquist advised if putting geogrid inside, they may have to lengthen the geogrid. Some things that occur when it fails, is that if the walls fall it brings down the grid down as well. Mr. Pope stated they will be letting AGEC determine how the geogrid should be used. Mayor McArthur advised there is not an answer for the setback; therefore, the request may need to be postponed until the next meeting. Mr. Pope stated the set back scenario was an afterthought following the Planning Commission meeting. He explained at the meeting a discussion ensued as to why the road was even there. The road is a 41.5 foot City road. Monster Storage was dedicating property to make a 60 foot right of way. To build the road full width, a St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Ten large retaining wall would have to built. He stated the best thing would be for the City to build a 25 foot road. Mayor McArthur explained the City does not build roads. The property owner would be responsible to do so. Mr. Pope stated the City owns the property. Mayor McArthur stated the City does own the property; however, the property owner will still have to improve their frontage. Mr. Pope inquired who will develop the other side. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the City has dealt with this issue in other areas of the City such as along the freeway where there is not another property owner to share the cost of the road. Mr. Pope stated the City owns 41.5 feet. Councilmember Almquist stated the road will serve as a back up road for closures and will not be double loaded. He inquired how much of the roadway is the applicant building. Mr. Pope explained they are looking to receive waivers to not build the road at this time. Curb and gutter has been installed, but the road is not paved. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the previous agreement stated when the next phase of the existing Monster Storage is complete, the road will be built. He asked City Attorney Shawn Guzman to confirm. City Attorney Shawn Guzman stated that is correct. He believes that is why the roadway was dedicated and not installed. The City had an agreement with Monster Storage to allow them to complete the next phase prior to building the road. City Manager Gary Esplin stated staff is not interested in building the road right now since there is not much use for it at this time. The City’s concerns on building the road are the financial resources of the individual(s) that will be paying for the installation. He believes it would be premature to install the road right now; however, since it is on a plat, it needs to be accounted for because it may be needed in the future. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised per the agreement, 25 feet of asphalt roadbase would have to be installed. Mayor McArthur stated north of St. George Boulevard, years ago, there were items that were platted and not installed. Since they were not, there is no way to get from City Hall to 3th or 4th East. He agrees with City Manager Gary Esplin that the road does not need to be installed right now; however, he feels a decision needs to be made on what the plan will include. Councilmember Pike advised there also needs to be a plan for payment. Councilmember Almquist stated Mr. Pope has come up with some good solutions. He believes the road does not need to be that wide. In addition, he feels rather than a 2 to 1 slope, it could be a 1 to 1 slope. If the road was narrower, a portion of the utilities could be brought further out. In addition, if the roadway below weren’t tied to the width the applicant is trying to design around, that would be a solution to the slope. The hydrology of the slope would change when more plant material and more water are present. Where the curb and gutter end, that could be moved to the east a bit and allow for an additional 10 feet. Mr. Pope stated he originally was going to propose something narrower. Currently, the plan includes a 60 foot right of way, taking more property from Mr. Lyman. The pavement width of 35 feet is standard in a 50 foot right of way. He explained the least expensive solution would be to slide a bit to the east side of the hill, which would help the issue with the slope however, if and when the road is built, it is probably better to leave it where it is. Councilmember Almquist indicated he believes the road does not need to be a 60 foot road. The narrower the road, the more it prohibits parking. To assist in the retention of the hill, he feels there needs to be gutter along the roadbase even if it isn’t paved at this time. St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Eleven Councilmember Pike stated he feels it is very important to get this right. Mayor McArthur stated he doesn’t know if there is enough information to make a decision at this time. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the item can be tabled for a week to be scheduled for a work meeting to give Mr. Pope additional time to work on designs as well as engineering staff to be present. He stated a decision needs to be made as to the real intent of the road in addition to the need for the roadway including some alternatives. He apologized for delaying the project, but feels Council is not prepared to approve the request at this time. Mayor McArthur inquired if tabling the item for a week would hurt. City Manager Gary Esplin stated the work meeting can be made an official meeting so that if Council is prepared to approve the request at that time, they can do so. Councilmember Almquist stated he and Mr. Pope have worked together on hillside issues previously. A solution would be to lower the entire site and move one of the walls to the rear. Doing this would retain the back wall as well as lessen the view of the RV’s which was a concern with the Planning Commission. Mr. Pope explained there is a 48 inch drain to detain the water and have it drain to the north rather than south on the surface. Councilmember Almquist stated he believes there is a way to design the plan to make it work. City Manager Gary Esplin advised he would like Mr. Pope to have a discussion with staff before the next meeting to have some of these issues worked out. Mr. Pope indicated he would speak with staff to try and work something out regarding the width of the road. City Manager Gary Esplin stated why the road is 60 feet should also be looked as well as the intent and necessity of the road. Mayor McArthur stated all properties need to be protected. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to table the request until the meeting next week. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. Mrs. Diane Lyman, owner of the properties, explained one of the reasons the City asked them to combine the properties is because it would be an easier situation for the City. To them, it does not make a difference. If the properties were combined, there would be much less of a problem cutting into the hill. Their property can be accessed with the original road and is already a gated area for security. She stated if the City requires them to drop the parking area 8 feet it would be a tremendous expense to remove the dirt. Mayor McArthur stated that was just one suggestion. Mrs. Lyman explained timing is important and feels there is no reason to have additional road access; that would involve additional security gates and expense. Mayor McArthur stated that is only one item that was mentioned. He explained all parties need to come up with some other ideas before the next meeting. Mrs. Lyman stated other property owners in that area stated they do not have a need for the road. City Manager Gary Esplin explained one of the property owners may have a need for the road in the future since parking on that particular business is not adequate. St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Twelve Mrs. Lyman explained the road does not go that far. City Manager Gary Esplin stated the City can require a development to dedicate a roadway. Mayor McArthur advised all parties involved can have the discussion at a later time. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a zone change from PD Employment to PD Commercial on 1.89 acres to allow for development of a self-storage facility, outdoor RV storage, and private condominium hobby garages on 8.46 acres in the Sun River project. Sun River, applicant. City Planner Ray Snyder advised the request is the fifth amendment to the project and read excerpts from the Amended Zone Change Application No. 5 for the Sun River Planned Development (PD). He explained there are 2 requests; the first is for the zone change and the second if for a zone change amendment to add private hobby garages as a use. In addition, he presented maps and pictures depicting the layout. The applicant is requesting to complete the project in phases. Planning Commission has seen different generations of the proposal before coming to Council. He gave a bit of history of what has been presented previously to the Planning Commission. The plan includes 180 outdoor RV units to be accessed 24 hours a day with a key pad entrance, 34 self storage units and hobby garages. Councilmember Bunker inquired if the garages will have windows. The applicant stated there will not be any windows. Mr. Snyder explained the landscaping will be trees and shrubs with drip systems, no lawn turf will be permitted. There will be a 15 feet of landscaping along the frontage of the public streets. Building heights will not exceed 22 feet consisting of stucco and concrete tile roof. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. Councilmember Bunker commented she thinks hobby garages are a good idea; there may be a lot of need for them. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to approve the zone change from PD Employment to PD Commercial by ordinance. Mr. Snyder clarified the zone change would be from PD to PD Commercial since the City does not have that designation. Councilmember Pike amended his motion as per the clarification. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and 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 .31 acres to allow construction of a parking structure with eight parking spaces and a sport court on the parking structure roof at 1811 W. Canyon View Drive. Point Vista Condos HOA, applicant. City Planner Craig Harvey advised the request is to change the zone on one lot that is currently zoned R-1-10 and to amend the zone for the PD Point Vista Condos. He presented several photos which showed the location of the lot, site plan and adjacent properties. He explained although the lot is currently vacant, it previously had a single family home that was demolished due to problems resulting from the expansive soils on the site. The proposed set backs are approximately 30 feet in the front and 25-30 feet in the rear. He explained the request was tabled at previous Planning Commission meetings because more information was needed. In addition, St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Thirteen the Planning Commission advised the applicant to move the parking structure closer to the existing condos. It was moved about 10 feet to give a greater setback to the property owners to the north. He presented a photo showing how the adjacent property to the north would be in relation to the sport court. He stated the sport court will have retaining walls with chain link fencing around the front and on the side that faces the existing home. The height of the fence will not exceed 12 feet per the ordinance. During the Planning Commission meeting, the homeowner requested, and the Planning Commission agreed, a barrier or screen be installed for privacy. Fencing on the Las Palmas side will be approximately 8 feet. Retaining walls will be installed to help prevent further erosion to the Las Palmas property. Landscaping will match the existing Point Vista landscape. Councilmember Almquist inquired if staff has heard from the property owner to the east. Mr. Harvey stated yes, the property owners have requested the parking structure be moved toward Point Vista. They have spoken with Mr. Shaw regarding shrubs being planted to maintain their privacy. Jeff Shaw, president for Point Vista Condos HOA, stated the condos were purchased for vacation properties. He explained, at this time, they do not have covered parking at their location, however, they have an offer to purchase the property to build the parking structure. They have concerns regarding the cliff along the Las Palmas property with erosion; they would also like to clean up the property. Councilmember Bunker pointed out the previous home had to be demolished because of blue clay. She asked Mr. Shaw what kind of assurance does he have that this will not be an issue with the proposed structure. Mr. Shaw stated he has been working with a geo-technical engineer who has performed several studies in the area. The solution is to over excavate approximately 10 feet below the surface and bring in an engineer to fill. With regards to the home that was formally there, the engineer stated the soil was not prepared properly. Councilmember Bunker stated she knows of several buildings that have over excavated and still had issues. She is concerned that if the request is approved there may be soil issues in the future. Mr. Shaw stated he can appreciate her concerns. There is quite an investment in this project and they want things done right. Councilmember Bunker inquired if additional inspections will be done once they reach the 10 feet. Mr. Shaw explained there will be engineering site visits and inspections done along the way. City Manager Gary Esplin asked Mr. Shaw if there was a reason piers were not being used. Mr. Shaw stated if piers were used, the garage floor would need to be suspended as well. It is being done this way because it is the most cost effective. In addition, this is what the engineer recommended. City Manager Gary Esplin stated he owns a house approximately 500 feet away. He explained Sunbrook had been over excavated and filled with the best fill available; n...

Mayor McArthur asked what will happen when dirt and rock sloughs off and fills up behind the catchments wall. Mark Bradley explained maintenance will be a concern. St. George City Council Minutes December 18, 2003 Page Four Mayor McArthur asked if there will be a homeowners association that will maintain the area. Council Member Whatcott commented the use of rock was approved to enhance the appearance as well as for a retaining wall. There was discussion regarding this issue as discussed in prior council meetings. One concern raised previously was in regard to the development encroaching on City property. The current proposal would not encroach on City property. Mansfield Jennings indicated the roof line of the homes will cover the excavated area. The houses are only 10 feet apart blocking the view. Trees will be planted in the areas that will be visible. Council Member Whatcott commented that he still has concerns about the aesthetics. Council Member Orton asked if Mr. Jennings will have to disclose something to the homeowners association regarding the hillside sloughing off. Mansfield Jennings indicated he has met with homeowners presently in the association and they are pleased with the solution. The cut has been there since before 1980 with very little sloughing occurring since then. Council Member Gardner made a motion, seconded by Council Member Isom to approve the amendment to the hillside development permit with the recommendations of Hillside Review Board and the Planning Commission.

Council Member Gardner asked if the amendment only applies to June July and August and if it is more power than in the original agreement or from a different source. Energy Services Director Solomon explained the current agreement is unit contingent meaning if the unit goes down the City has to find energy to replace that resource. The amendment will mean DG&T will replace the resource if the unit goes down for an agreed upon price and scheduled on a case by case basis. St. George City Council Minutes December 18, 2003 Page Five Council Member Gardner seconded the motion. All voted aye, motion carried. Presentation concerning zoning violations in the Middleton area of the City Paul Bevin explained he has requested the City enforce the codes in the Middleton area for 10 years. He expressed concern with regard to traffic access, single family housing violation and 2 blocks that are eyesores. He displayed pictures of various sites in Middleton that are in his opinion in violation of City code. He detailed the portions of the zoning ordinance he feels are being violated. There are oversized and overweight items routinely moved on the road, UDOT, the Sheriff and City police refuse to enforce the law with respect to these vehicles. He questioned why the laws aren?t enforced and stated law enforcement officers are paid off not to cite violators. Council Member Isom stated she takes offense that at the insinuation the Police Department would be paid off. City Manager Esplin advised Mr. Bevin not to make the insinuation that the police are being paid off. Mr. Bevin replied he is not making an insinuation but an accusation. Code Enforcement Officer Brad Young explained at the end of September he was brought a complaint by Mr. Bevin and updated the council on action taken with regard to the violations. With regard to the multi family housing complaint, one couple will be moving out as soon as they find other living arrangements. He is working with Laura Woolsey on the violation regarding the metal fabrication and debris. With respect to Mr. Harrison, he is entitled to one tow truck and has been written a second notice of violation and given 30 days to comply. With regard to inoperable vehicles and flammable materials in C2 zone, much of vegetation is natural one property owner has firewood to deal with. Inoperable vehicles have been sited and most have been removed. Southern Utah Vault is non-confirming use and they will be relocating their business into Washington City. The sign violation has been corrected. Mayor McArthur expressed appreciation for Mr. Young?s work. He explained a new process in being implemented that will speed up the process of bringing code violators into compliance. Paul Bevin addressed concern for a lack of fire inspection of home run businesses. He continued to express concern with ?gypsy? vendors. He wants Utah Attorney General to investigate the lack of enforcement. A resident of the Middleton area addressed the council explaining he understands some of Mr. Bevin?s concern over the traffic issues. However, he disagrees with Mr. Bevin?s other concerns. He stated he doesn?t think Mr. Bevin is right in becoming a personal policeman for the area and spoke in support of job City staff is doing to enforce the code. Mary Herrera spoke in disagreement with Mr. Bevin. She was notified she is in violation of the code and is working to come into compliance. She stated that Mr. Bevin should not be a private policeman. She doesn?t believe Mr. Bevin took pictures from a car and feels he violated her privacy with his picture taking Madge Carpenter commented that 99% of residences of Middleton don?t have contact with Mr. Bevin because he has decided how everyone should live their lives. She discussed violations of ordinances with respect to Mr. Bevin?s property. She stated she doesn?t appreciate Mr. Bevin being her conscience. St. George City Council Minutes December 18, 2003 Page Six Mayor McArthur commented that judging from comments made by residents of the area and Mr. Young, citizen?s care about their neighborhoods. Individuals do comply when they are notified of a violation. Pete Mickelson commented he is not in support of Mr. Bevin and indicated some of the traffic is necessary to continue with development in the area. Mr. Hirschi is the owner of Hirschi Roofing. He explained at one time Mr. Bevin had an unregistered vehicle and hauled water in it, he didn?t call the police. He commented that everyone has weaknesses and all should try to be good neighbors. Raylin Hauskins explained her daughter and family lived on their lot in a trailer while building their home. They moved the trailer as soon as they could after they were notified they were out of compliance. She commented that Mr. Bevin has caused so much of a problem for the people of Middleton that they are tired of him. Susan Bell lives in Middleton and spoke in opposition to Mr. Bevin?s complaints. She explained she wasn?t aware until this meeting that she is in violation because she and her husband share their home with her 87 year old father in law whose health is failing and they will not leave him. City Manager Esplin assured Mrs. Bell that an unlimited amount of people can live in a home if they are related by blood or marriage. Mayor McArthur assured Ms. Bell she wasn?t in violation of the code and explained some of the action being taken regarding traffic from large trucks in the area. PUBLIC HEARINGS/ZONE CHANGES/ORDINANCES Public hearing to consider a zone change from A-20 Agricultural to RE-12.5 Residential Estates on 7.28 acres located at approximately 2800 South 2350 East. Community Development Director Nicholson explained the 7.28 acres is classified as low density residential in the general plan. The property is surrounded by residential estates, the Planning Commission recommends approval. Mayor McArthur declared the public hearing open. Jeanie Black expressed frustration because her property is in an agriculture strip although it is to remain low density she feels like she is being forced out. She expressed concern because people move to the country and then complains about flies or animals etc. She felt the sewer assessment wasn?t fair. Mayor McArthur indicated there is another item on the agenda that addresses the need to increase the distance between homes and large animals. Jeanie Black indicated that there is an area that is higher in elevation than her land and dirt and water is running off onto her property. She is concerned that eventually houses will be falling onto her property. She indicated she has spoken with Quality and the neighbor about it. Council Member Allen commented that situation needs to be looked into and addressed. Council Member Gardner explained the City purchased some property in that area to try and maintain some openness on the other side of the hill. The City has made a commitment to buy land out there to preserve the open space. Mayor McArthur declared the public hearing closed. St. George City Council Minutes December 18, 2003 Page Seven Council Member Gardner made a motion, seconded by Council Member Isom to approve by ordinance zone change from A-20 Agricultural to RE-12.5 Residential Estates on 7.28 acres located at approximately 2800 South 2350 East.

There was discussion as to whether the council would have any input on the type of commercial development on the property. Specifics on the type of development approved for the property is addressed in the next agenda item that involves a zone change for the property. The process of notification was discussed which includes ads placed in the newspaper and letters sent to addresses close to the property under consideration. The County records are used to determine property ownership with respect to notification. Mayor McArthur suggested the policy of placing a sign regarding a proposed zone change on the property be reinstituted. Lauren Nielsen with E & F Investments encouraged the council to approve the zone change as it will improve the area. Mayor McArthur declared the public hearing open. St. George City Council Minutes December 18, 2003 Page Nine Robert McCullin stated he is opposed to the zone change. Larry Snyder a resident in Ironwood spoke in opposition to the proposed zone change. Dennis West a resident of Ironwood spoke in opposition to the proposed change. Inga Matoosi a resident of Ironwood, asked to keep it residential. Mayor McArthur commented as the general plan is developed the council considers what appropriate uses of area of the land are. The Planning Commission feels the zone change does fit the general plan the council takes their recommendation seriously. He closed the public hearing. Council Member Allen indicated during the Planning Commission meeting there was discussion and concern for the homeowners. When the idea of storage units came up the Planning Commission wasn?t sure of the appropriateness of the use and explained the next public hearing will detail the concessions put on the development this if the general plan amendment does pass. There was discussion concerning including the concessions agreed on by the developer if the general plan is amended to allow the area to be zoned commercial. If the general plan is amended, any commercial development can be built on the property, however, there is an agreement that would specify what can be done on the property. Community Development Director Nicholson explained two parcels are affected with the proposed amendment. The storage units would be put on the top part of one parcel. There is no agreement with respect to the other property which is owned by a different party. The other property owners are not sure what they are going to do with their property, however, they would like their property included in any general plan change. The group discussed the reason for the proposed zone change. Concern over changing the general plan was expressed; if the zone is amended other types of commercial development could go on the property. Council Member Whatcott expressed concern with amending the general plan when commercial encroaches on residential zones. He asked if there will be other commercial development as a result of this zone change. The potential use of the property was discussed. Apartments or mobile homes are some of the potential uses within the current zone. Council Member Orton suggested a site visit see the property. Mayor McArthur suggested the public hearing for this item and the next agenda item be continued to the January 8, 2004 at 3:00 pm so the council can conduct a site visit. Community Development Director Nicholson reviewed the development agreement related to the property in question. The developer wants to put the wall with a zero lot line set back. Mayor McArthur asked if there is an option to consider a C2 zone. Community Development Director Nicholson indicated the applicant could apply for a conditional use permit. Council Member Orton made a motion, seconded by Council Member Whatcott to continue the public hearing on an amendment to the General Plan Land Use Map from medium density residential to commercial for the area at the southwest corner of 1800 North and Dixie Downs Road and the public hearing to consider a zone change St. George City Council Minutes December 18, 2003 Page Ten from RE-37.5 Residential Estates to C-3 General Commercial with a development agreement for the use of storage sheds on 1.34 acres located at the southwest corner of 1800 North and Dixie Downs Road. All voted aye, motion carried. Council Member Isom was excused at 6:45 p.m. Public Hearing to consider an amendment to the Zoning Ordinance for Residential Treatment Centers, Chapter 10, Commercial Zones, to eliminate residential uses within the C-2, C-3 and C-4 zones and add Residential Treatment Centers as a conditional use in Chapter 5, Agricultural Zones, with 5 acres minimum lot size. Community Development Director Nicholson reviewed the background for the requested change which is based on legal advice to provide some control over the location of residential treatment facilities. As long as conditional uses permits are allowed in commercial zones the City will be under pressure to allow residential treatment centers in commercial zones. Conditional use permits for residential treatment centers will be repealed from the commercial zone and permitted in the agricultural zone subject to a 5 acre minimum lot size. A community impact study would have to be done by an independent qualified firm before the permit could be issued. Other changes include eliminating the allowed 10% increase in beds without coming back to the council for approval. There was brief discussion regarding how the minimum lot size was determined. Mayor McArthur declared the public hearing open. Seeing no one in attendance to comment, he closed the public hearing Council Member Gardner made a motion, seconded by Council Member Allen to approve by ordinance an amendment to the Zoning Ordinance for Residential Treatment Centers, Chapter 10, Commercial Zones, to eliminate residential uses within the C-2, C-3, and C-4 zones, and add Residential Treatment Centers as a conditional use in Chapter 5, Agricultural Zones, with five acres minimum lot size. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote as follows: Council Member Allen, aye Council Member Gardner, aye Council Member Orton, aye Council Member Whatcott aye Motion carried. Public hearing to consider an amendment to the Zoning Ordinance, Chapter 12, Open Space Zone, Section 6, modifying the minimum buffer distance between livestock areas and residential zones which do not allow large animals. Community Development Director Nicholson explained the amendment applies only to open space zones. The reason for the change is to determine if 100 feet is enough of a buffer from large animals to protect areas that do not allow large animals. The group discussed the reason for the change in the ordinance. Currently R110 zone that is adjacent to open space allows large animals in the open area as long as they are 100 feet from homes. The change would increase the buffer distance to 200 feet. Existing animals will not be affected, zoning is not retroactive. Animals are allowed in open space but not in R110 zones. There was discussion as to what zones the amendment would apply to. It would apply only to zones that prohibit large animals. Possible problems and the area associated with the change were discussed. The group discussed the manner the 200 feet buffer would apply; it would be from the residential property line to the open space. St. George City Council Minutes December 18, 2003 Page Eleven The issue of land use was discussed. As long as the land use didn?t change, animals in the open zone with only 100 feet buffer distance would not be affected. Those with animals in the open zone, own the property, they are not encroaching on property owned by another entity. City Attorney Guzman commented those that are grandfathered in now can lose the animal rights if they don?t keep the animals on the property. The group discussed the reason for picking 200 feet as an appropriate buffer distance. Council Member Orton suggested a site visit to determine if the proposed amendment would solve the problem. Mayor McArthur declared the public hearing open. Seeing no one in attendance to comment, he closed the public hearing Council Member Whatcott made a motion to approve an amendment to the Zoning Ordinance, Chapter 12, Open Space Zone, Section 6, modifying the minimum buffer distance between livestock areas and residential zones which do not allow large animals. The motion died for lack of a second. Council Member Gardner made a motion, seconded by Council Member Allen to continue the issue until a site visit can be made. All voted in favor, motion carried. Public hearing to consider an amendment to the Zoning Ordinance, Chapter 10, Commercial Zones, regarding the setbacks required for commercial buildings abutting residential zones. Community Development Director Nicholson indicated the issue is in connection with a commercial zone that is adjacent to a residential zone which only requires a 10 foot set back regardless of the height of the building. Staff and the Planning Commission recommend that the 10 foot set back apply as long as building is 15 feet or less in height. A building taller would require 1 foot of setback for each additional foot of building height. This also amends the language regarding landscaping and wall or any combination. He detailed the proposed changes in the ordinance. Council Member Orton asked if this change will affect some areas of downtown so as to make it difficult for commercial buildings to be constructed on some lots. Community Development Director Nicholson commented that it may be a problem in some situations. However language can be added to allow an application to council for exemption to the setback requirement. Mayor McArthur commented that the problem is that residential is developed and a new tall commercial building could adversely affect the people already there. This ordinance modification is proposed to limit the affect on existing residential property. Mayor McArthur declared the public hearing open. Seeing no one in attendance to comment, he closed the public hearing Council Member Gardner made a motion, seconded by Council Member Allen to approve an amendment to the Zoning Ordinance, Chapter 10, Commercial Zones, regarding the setbacks required for commercial buildings abutting residential zones. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote as follows: Council Member Allen, aye Council Member Gardner, aye Council Member Orton, aye Council Member Whatcott aye Motion carried. St. George City Council Minutes December 18, 2003 Page Twelve RESOLUTIONS: Consider approval of a resolution amending various fees for planning and zoning requests, and also subdivision application fees. City Manager Esplin detailed the proposed fee changes and indicated the one that may be of some concern is the 2% of construction costs for inspections. Fees are in line with other communities in the state. The question is how much should development pay and how much should be covered by other funds such as sales tax revenues. Mayor McArthur asked regarding an implementation schedule. The group discussed possible implementation schedules of the fees. The fees could be implemented as of January 1, 2004 or applied to new requests immediately. Council Member Allen commented one reason for the fee increase is to provide funds to hire more staff which is needed because the number of building permits issued has increased significantly. Staff hasn?t been increased to cover the increased growth in the Building Department. Council Member Gardner commented there is room for a philosophical discussion regarding what services are provided by the City as a part of doing business such as parks and fire protection. City Manager Esplin indicated the proposed fees will not cover all of the costs of development. He commented the developer is creating the need for additional staff and the increased review costs and asked it if is fair for the person who doesn?t benefit from development, to pay for those costs. Community Development Director Nicholson indicated it has been 20 to 25 years since some of the fees have been changed. The only fee changed in the last 6 or 7 years is the zone change fees. The board of adjustment fee doesn?t even cover the cost of run the public notice in the paper. Council Member Gardner commented that he is not sure that throwing more money solves a problem and asked what 2% of construction costs means. City Manager Esplin indicated it is 2% of the cost of the road to be constructed in front of the development. Council Member Whatcott commented that if the City were a business rates would be reviewed annually to be sure that the quality of the business is being maintained. However, in his opinion government is more concerned about providing the service than the increasing fees to cover the cost of service. He indicated the City is in not in a position to continue providing the service without covering the associated costs. Council Member Whatcott made a motion, seconded by Council Member Allen to approve by resolution the amendment to various fees for the zoning and planning process as detailed by City Manager Esplin. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote as follows: Council Member Whatcott, aye Council Member Orton, aye Council Member Gardner, nay Council Member Allen, aye Motion carried. City Manger Esplin suggested the effective date of the increase be set at January 1, 2004. St. George City Council Minutes December 18, 2003 Page Thirteen Council Member Whatcott made a motion, seconded by Council Member Allen to set the effective date for the amendment to various fees for the zoning and planning process as January 1, 2004. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote as follows: Council Member Whatcott, aye Council Member Orton, aye Council Member Gardner, nay Council Member Allen, aye Motion carried. Consider approval of a resolution declaring the City?s intent to adjust the common boundary line with Santa Clara City in the area north of Sunbrook Golf Course and west of Country Lane Road City Manger Esplin explained the applicant would like to move the property line from Santa Clara City to the City of St. George so the development can be done all in one city. He indicated the Mayor of Santa Clara City is in agreement with the proposed resolution. Community Development Director Nicholson explained the resolution would start the process, there is a 60 day comment period and public notice has to be given before the process is completed. Council Member Orton made a motion, seconded by council Member Whatcott to approve a resolution declaring the City?s intent to adjust the common boundary line with Santa Clara City in the area north of Sunbrook Golf Course and west of Country Lane Road. Mayor McArthur called ...


City Council Minutes 12/06/2012:
... design and construction of river armoring on the Santa Clara River in the Sunbrook Golf course area. Consider approval of a professional services agreement with Rosenberg Associates for the design, engineering, permitting and construction management services for the Millcreek Generation Facility Hazard Mitigation Grant Program Erosion Protection Project. Purchasing Manager Connie Hood advised the request is for the City’s portion for the design and construction management services for the Sunbrook Golf/Monterey Subdivision HMGP in the amount of $51,425.00. City Manager Gary Esplin explained after an emergency is declared in the State, the funds spent in the State go to a fund for mitigation which is administered by the State with approval from FEMA. In certain situations agencies can apply for a mitigation grant. The City applied for mitigation efforts at Sunbrook to protect the homes that are adjacent to the number one hole at Black Rock and have also applied for a mitigation grant to do some improvements adjacent to the Millcreek Generation Plant to protect the facility from erosion from the Virgin River. The grants were awarded and Rick Rosenberg is working to complete the design. Mayor McArthur gave kudos to the City’s financial team. Councilmember Almquist inquired what the City’s match was. Councilmember Pike stated the match was $12,856.00 on this contract. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that amount is correct and will be paid out of two funds, the electric generation fund and the flood fund generated by the utility fees. Councilmember Bunker asked if that amount is what needs to be approved and why was the $51,425.00 on the agenda. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that although the cost of the total project is $357,057.00 the City’s portion is $12,856.00. He asked Rick Rosenberg to confirm. Mr. Rosenberg stated the City’s portion is the 25 percent. City Manager Gary Esplin stated his understanding is that the City is responsible for 25 percent of the FEMA project. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Bunker to approve bid as recommended in the amount of $12,856.00. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. Councilmember Almquist inquired if this agreement is for design work only. Ms. Hood explained the agreement is for construction management and design. Councilmember Almquist asked Mr. Rosenberg if the design would be similar to that of the turn near the bridge in the area between Southgate Golf Course and Tonaquint Park. He also inquired about the armoring and whether it will remain at the current river depth. Mr. Rosenberg stated the design would be similar and that the armoring is approximately 8 feet in the ground from where the slope changes. Councilmember Almquist inquired if the design is similar to the redesign of the sewer near the Virgin River. He asked if the channel is eroding or staying about the same and if 8 feet was sufficient. St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Four Mr. Rosenberg stated the channel fluctuates. He explained the Santa Clara River is a sand bed river and as it floods, sediment moves through the river system. The 8 foot depth is about as deep as it could be. Councilmember Almquist asked if vertical gabian baskets will be used in the design. Mr. Rosenberg answered yes, the design includes gabian baskets as well as enclosed rock. Councilmember Almquist inquired if gabian baskets will also be used in the up slope protection area. Mr. Rosenberg explained a thinner basket called a reno mattress will be used on the slope and has NRCS riprap underneath. Councilmember Almquist stated that design is similar to what was put in at Zion National Park 50 years ago. Mr. Rosenberg stated he has seen gabian walls in the Virgin River as well. Councilmember Almquist inquired if the same design will be used at Millcreek. Mr. Rosenberg stated Millcreek is only a rock riprap. He explained gabian baskets are mitigation upgrades. When FEMA comes in to do a repair, and the funds are available gabian baskets are used. All of the Santa Clara projects were done using gabian baskets, however the Virgin River project did not use them except in critical areas near homes and trails. The Millcreek project will use a similar MRCS design. Councilmember Almquist asked what size of rock will be used. Mr. Rosenberg stated the rock will be a D50 of 24 inch so it has rock from 40 inches to a foot in the gradation. Councilmember Hughes arrived. Mr. Rosenberg explained the slope is prepared using filter cloth so that soil does not migrate through the fabric and rock. Councilmember Almquist inquired if the design could include a segment of approximately 30 feet to include large rock near where the Virgin River meets the wall. Mr. Rosenberg stated in order to keep the flow from getting behind the wall, the rock in turned perpendicular to the bank and large rock is used on the bottom. Councilmember Almquist stated the river can move rocks no matter the size. He asked City Manager Gary Esplin if the City owned the large lava rocks that are just off Riverside Drive. Mayor McArthur stated the rocks were located on the former Gary Pierce property. City Manager Gary Esplin stated the City does own the rock. Councilmember Almquist asked Mr. Rosenberg if those rocks would be used. Mr. Rosenberg explained that while large rock provides great protection small rock is needed to fill in gaps. City Manager Gary Esplin clarified there are two contracts. The costs listed on the agenda are for the total cost of the project, Millcreek at $63,770 and Sunbrook at $51,425. Although the Council has approved the City’s match of 25 percent, the entire contract has to be approved. Mayor McArthur stated Councilmember Bunker will need to change her motion to the correct amount and that both contracts can be included. Councilmember Bunker inquired if the motion could be changed to the correct amount. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the Council needs to approve the two mitigation HMGP grant projects to Rosenberg for the stipulated amounts including the City’s 25 percent match. St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Five AMENDED MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Bunker to amend the motion to reflect the entire amount including the City’s 25 percent on both items. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. STAFF REPORT: Presentation of the annual fiscal year audit. Steve Palmer with Hinton Burdock who has assisted with the City audit for approximately 10 years formally announced a successful completion. As in all previous audits, the City has been issued an unqualified audit and in their opinion, all of the City’s financial statements are materially correct. In addition, they have issued an unqualified opinion on the City’s compliance with federal and state requirements. He explained when an audit if found unqualified, that means there are no issues. He stated the financial statements will be sent to the State of Utah as well as the Federal Audit Clearing House. He thanked the City’s finance personnel and Council for allowing them to be of service to the City. Mayor McArthur stated he appreciated the City’s financial team. Councilmember Bunker commented she appreciates the audit. It is rewarding to have a clean bill of health for the City. LIQUOR LICENSE: Consider approval of a club liquor license for the St. George Dixie Elks at 630 West 1250 North. Thomas Franklin Auffhammer, applicant. Mayor McArthur advised that the request is not for a new license just a change of license holder. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to approve the liquor license. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. SPECIAL EVENT PERMIT: Consider a request for waiver of a special event fee for a radio control flying event. Darrel Jensen, St. George War Birds, applicant. Business License Specialist Shiloh Kirkland advised there will be 2 events held near the Wastewater Treatment Plant on February 21-24, 2013 and October 18-19, 2013. Mayor McArthur stated last year Council talked about approving an entire year. The property being used is next to BLM. Councilmember Almquist stated this event has never caused issues in the past and will have sufficient parking. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Almquist to approve the fee waiver. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Hughes. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Six The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the only issue has been with RV parking overnight. The City will monitor that and will work with the individuals. SPECIAL EVENT PERMIT: Consider approval of a special event permit for a zip line. Bryce Payne, applicant. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the permit was approved last year. Since this is a deviation from normal business, staff felt like the request needed to go before Council. He asked the applicant to make his presentation. Bryce Payne, applicant, explained the zip line was in place in April and May of this year and has been taken to various large events around the country. He would like to continue to bring the zip line to the City during gaps in their schedule, however it is cost prohibitive because of the fees. He would like to find a way to alleviate a portion of the fees by getting a fee waiver or reduction. The cost to run the zip line is approximately $6,000 for the event fee and $3,000 for taxes. He stated Washington City has a permit fee of $50. Councilmember Bunker inquired how long the event would last. Mr. Payne stated he would like to have the zip line in place from now until February 8, 2013. Councilmember Bunker commented the zip line seems like so much fun on property that does not have much use. She inquired if there was another category this would fit rather than a special event. City Manager Gary Esplin responded there was not another category. Mr. Payne stated the zip line has received incredible reviews and they were asked to bring it back again; however, they lost money the last time. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the Council can deal with fees. The business does not have a location, nor does it have property taxes like a normal business. Fees can be approved each year at whatever amount Council sees fit, however, Council cannot approve the zip line to return every year, the request needs to reviewed each year. He stated a special category can be set to change the fee to an annual fee. Under the existing ordinance, since this type of business is a transient, it can only fit into this category and is limited to hold so many events per year. Mayor McArthur inquired if Council could approve the request to get the applicant started and revisit the fee issues after some research. City Manager Gary Esplin stated he believes that can be done, however by the time a study is done the event will be over. In the past the City charged the applicant $75 per day. Council can set a different amount. Mayor McArthur asked the applicant about the fee in Washington City. Mr. Payne stated Washington City charges a one time special event fee of $50. City Attorney Shawn Guzman arrived. Councilmember Hughes asked the applicant what he would like to see be done regarding fees and when the event can take place. Mr. Payne explained to be cost effective, the zip line needs to be in place for a couple of months. Currently, the standard fee is $150, last time they were here Council reduced the fee to $75 per day, which is still cost prohibitive. He would like a fee waiver or a set flat amount. Mayor McArthur inquired how much the applicant had to pay last year. Mr. Payne replied they paid $3,000. Councilmember Bunker stated she would like to see a set fee if possible. The City does not receive anything from the property and does not have to do much other than have the Police Department monitor the area. St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Seven Mr. Payne explained they set up the zip line and they have insurance. Ms. Kirkland stated Mr. Payne would like to pay the fee on a weekly basis. The consensus of the Council is that would be fine MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Bunker to approve the special event permit at a rate of $50 per day to be paid weekly. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. SET PUBLIC HEARINGS: City Planner Ray Snyder advised that the Planning Commission recommends public hearings be scheduled for December 20,2012 to consider a zone change request from PD-R to R-1-10 on 32.92 acres located west of Pioneer Road and southwest of the Las Colinas Phases 1 through 4 subdivisions. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to set the public hearings as recommended. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. FINAL PLAT: Todd Jacobsen presented the final plat for Desert Willow Phase 1 to create a 17 lot single family subdivision on 12.86 acres. The property is zoned R-1-8 and is located at 360 North Street and Westridge Drive. Mayor McArthur asked Council for a motion to approve and allow him to sign the final plat. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to approve the final plat and authorize Mayor McArthur to sign. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PRELIMINARY PLAT: Todd Jacobsen presented the preliminary plat for Sun River Phase 32 to create a 34 unit single family residential subdivision on 12.86 acres and is located northwest of Whitestone Drive and Grapevine Drive. Density is 2.46 dwelling per acre and zoning is PD-R. The general plan calls this a low density residential area. Because of the existing topography, the developer is proposing a number of rock walls that vary in height from 6 to 7 feet. In addition, the interior streets in this subdivision will be 30 foot private roadways. The developer will be required to provide a drainage channel at the top of these walls to collect runoff from the hillsides. Mayor McArthur asked if this is in the gated area. Mr. Jacobsen stated it is not in the gated area, however, it is nearby. St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Eight Councilmember Bunker inquired if the walls are retaining walls and will they be in the back of the property. Mr. Jacobsen stated the walls will be retaining walls and are will be in the back of the property. Scott McCall with Sun River explained the retaining walls will range from 4 to 8 feet tucked into the hillside and will be on both sides. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to approve the preliminary plat as stated. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit for an RV storage facility at 227 West 700 South. Denis Lyman, applicant. City Planner Ray Snyder explained the applicant is requesting to add an outdoor RV storage facility to an existing self storage facility. Zoning is C-3. He presented a slide show which details the area the applicant is wanting to develop. The site plan includes an improved asphalt area, covered canopy areas and landscaping including retaining walls. Mayor McArthur inquired about the height of the walls. Mr. Snyder explained the applicant will be expanding their storage facility business by creating covered outside storage with an emphasis on motor homes. There will be a 6 foot wrought iron fence around the perimeter. Landscaping and color scheme will be similar to that of the existing storage building. The applicant has requested not to develop the road, he is proposing to merge properties together. Along the public street, there will be two 8 foot block retaining walls as well as a 4 foot planter and will have an easement area where the right of way ends. Mayor McArthur inquired if the slope was a natural slope. Mr. Snyder stated he believes it is a natural slope. Mayor McArthur expressed concern because property owners in the area are trying to create a special improvement district since the hill is moving. He wants to make sure what is developed in that area will be stable. Mr. Snyder stated staff is comfortable with this area. A pad has already been cleared. He will bring photographs and have the applicant address the geo-technical nature. Councilmember Pike inquired if the toe of the hill will be cut into. Mr. Snyder replied no. He presented additional pictures depicting the existing storage facility as well as the proposed landscaping, block walls and wrought iron fence. Planning Commission talked about aesthetics of screening and would like the trees to be taller. One option would be to add shrubs, but that may not be a reality since the area is only 4 feet wide. The applicant is requesting to reduce the public utilities easement to 10 feet rather than the 15 feet required. Another item brought up at the Planning Commission meeting was timing of the project. A citizen spoke at the Planning Commission regarding his concerns about erosion near the St. George Shuttle. Planning Commission recommends approval with the following conditions: (1) Landscaping; trees and shrubs shall be installed dense enough to help screen the view of the RV’s from Bluff Street. This shall be verified on the landscaping and irrigations plans submitted during the civil engineering plan check process by staff. Option 1 = trees to be located at lower level as submitted, Option 2 = trees to be located at highest terraced (shelf) level. (2) Erosion Control - Landscaping; erosion control shall be installed to protect the hillside immediately below the landscaped area. This shall be verified on the landscaping and irrigation plans submitted during the civil engineering plan check process by staff. (3) Erosion Control - Site; a drainage report shall be submitted as a part of the civil St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Nine engineering plan check process and verified to be compliant by staff. A storm drainage system shall be designed to drain away storm water to the north in a detention system that will discharge into the Bluff Street storm drain system. (4) Fencing; fencing shall consist of either wrought iron decorative fence or a masonry wall. This shall be verified during the plan check process by staff. (5) Lot Merger; the lots shall be legally merged (the RV covered parking shall become part of the existing improved Monster Storage facility). This merger will provide a business office and will negate the need to improve the roadway in front of the property. The merger shall be completed and recorded before any permitting approval (construction plans or building permit). (6) Access; access shall be through the existing Monster Storage site. (7) Subgrade; the site shall be graded into the subgrade to accommodate the future roadway. (8) Delayed Improvement Agreement; the applicant shall provide for review and approval by the City Attorney’s office a delayed improvement agreement for road and utility improvements. Mr. Snyder read a portion of the findings. Reid Pope, project engineer, explained with regard to the landscaping, they would like to cut the utility easement down to 10 feet to allow for wider planters. Councilmember Pike inquired if Mr. Pope was talking about the rear of the property. Mr. Pope stated he was not talking about the rear of the property, and explained the City allows a 15 foot easement but does not allow block walls in that area. Mr. Snyder showed the picture of the area Mr. Pope was talking about. Councilmember Almquist stated the problem with putting landscaping down below is the public utilities. He inquired about the public utilities shown in the plans. Mr. Pope explained they will have power and telephone conduits. Councilmember Almquist inquired if there were any utilities in the roadway. He stated the road could accommodate some utilities if needed. Mr. Pope stated that normally power is outside of a roadway. Councilmember Almquist stated that the copy of the plans given to Council show 3 planters and believes that will be sufficient. Tall, skinny plants will hide the view of the motor homes. Mayor McArthur inquired if City staff looked into cutting the easement down to 10 feet. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that he does not believe staff looked into that. Mr. Snyder stated that this request came up just prior to the meeting. He did not have a chance to conduct any research; he would have to check City code. Mayor McArthur advised this request may need to be revisited. He is concerned this area will have issues with the hill slipping as this has happened down the road. He stated the slope is still quite steep. Mr. Pope explained AGEC is working on a plan and will have geogrid approximately every two feet. Councilmember Almquist inquired if they will be using 3000 pound blocks and if geogrid will be placed inside. Mr. Pope stated yes they will be 3000 pound blocks. Councilmember Almquist advised if putting geogrid inside, they may have to lengthen the geogrid. Some things that occur when it fails, is that if the walls fall it brings down the grid down as well. Mr. Pope stated they will be letting AGEC determine how the geogrid should be used. Mayor McArthur advised there is not an answer for the setback; therefore, the request may need to be postponed until the next meeting. Mr. Pope stated the set back scenario was an afterthought following the Planning Commission meeting. He explained at the meeting a discussion ensued as to why the road was even there. The road is a 41.5 foot City road. Monster Storage was dedicating property to make a 60 foot right of way. To build the road full width, a St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Ten large retaining wall would have to built. He stated the best thing would be for the City to build a 25 foot road. Mayor McArthur explained the City does not build roads. The property owner would be responsible to do so. Mr. Pope stated the City owns the property. Mayor McArthur stated the City does own the property; however, the property owner will still have to improve their frontage. Mr. Pope inquired who will develop the other side. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the City has dealt with this issue in other areas of the City such as along the freeway where there is not another property owner to share the cost of the road. Mr. Pope stated the City owns 41.5 feet. Councilmember Almquist stated the road will serve as a back up road for closures and will not be double loaded. He inquired how much of the roadway is the applicant building. Mr. Pope explained they are looking to receive waivers to not build the road at this time. Curb and gutter has been installed, but the road is not paved. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the previous agreement stated when the next phase of the existing Monster Storage is complete, the road will be built. He asked City Attorney Shawn Guzman to confirm. City Attorney Shawn Guzman stated that is correct. He believes that is why the roadway was dedicated and not installed. The City had an agreement with Monster Storage to allow them to complete the next phase prior to building the road. City Manager Gary Esplin stated staff is not interested in building the road right now since there is not much use for it at this time. The City’s concerns on building the road are the financial resources of the individual(s) that will be paying for the installation. He believes it would be premature to install the road right now; however, since it is on a plat, it needs to be accounted for because it may be needed in the future. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised per the agreement, 25 feet of asphalt roadbase would have to be installed. Mayor McArthur stated north of St. George Boulevard, years ago, there were items that were platted and not installed. Since they were not, there is no way to get from City Hall to 3th or 4th East. He agrees with City Manager Gary Esplin that the road does not need to be installed right now; however, he feels a decision needs to be made on what the plan will include. Councilmember Pike advised there also needs to be a plan for payment. Councilmember Almquist stated Mr. Pope has come up with some good solutions. He believes the road does not need to be that wide. In addition, he feels rather than a 2 to 1 slope, it could be a 1 to 1 slope. If the road was narrower, a portion of the utilities could be brought further out. In addition, if the roadway below weren’t tied to the width the applicant is trying to design around, that would be a solution to the slope. The hydrology of the slope would change when more plant material and more water are present. Where the curb and gutter end, that could be moved to the east a bit and allow for an additional 10 feet. Mr. Pope stated he originally was going to propose something narrower. Currently, the plan includes a 60 foot right of way, taking more property from Mr. Lyman. The pavement width of 35 feet is standard in a 50 foot right of way. He explained the least expensive solution would be to slide a bit to the east side of the hill, which would help the issue with the slope however, if and when the road is built, it is probably better to leave it where it is. Councilmember Almquist indicated he believes the road does not need to be a 60 foot road. The narrower the road, the more it prohibits parking. To assist in the retention of the hill, he feels there needs to be gutter along the roadbase even if it isn’t paved at this time. St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Eleven Councilmember Pike stated he feels it is very important to get this right. Mayor McArthur stated he doesn’t know if there is enough information to make a decision at this time. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the item can be tabled for a week to be scheduled for a work meeting to give Mr. Pope additional time to work on designs as well as engineering staff to be present. He stated a decision needs to be made as to the real intent of the road in addition to the need for the roadway including some alternatives. He apologized for delaying the project, but feels Council is not prepared to approve the request at this time. Mayor McArthur inquired if tabling the item for a week would hurt. City Manager Gary Esplin stated the work meeting can be made an official meeting so that if Council is prepared to approve the request at that time, they can do so. Councilmember Almquist stated he and Mr. Pope have worked together on hillside issues previously. A solution would be to lower the entire site and move one of the walls to the rear. Doing this would retain the back wall as well as lessen the view of the RV’s which was a concern with the Planning Commission. Mr. Pope explained there is a 48 inch drain to detain the water and have it drain to the north rather than south on the surface. Councilmember Almquist stated he believes there is a way to design the plan to make it work. City Manager Gary Esplin advised he would like Mr. Pope to have a discussion with staff before the next meeting to have some of these issues worked out. Mr. Pope indicated he would speak with staff to try and work something out regarding the width of the road. City Manager Gary Esplin stated why the road is 60 feet should also be looked as well as the intent and necessity of the road. Mayor McArthur stated all properties need to be protected. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to table the request until the meeting next week. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. Mrs. Diane Lyman, owner of the properties, explained one of the reasons the City asked them to combine the properties is because it would be an easier situation for the City. To them, it does not make a difference. If the properties were combined, there would be much less of a problem cutting into the hill. Their property can be accessed with the original road and is already a gated area for security. She stated if the City requires them to drop the parking area 8 feet it would be a tremendous expense to remove the dirt. Mayor McArthur stated that was just one suggestion. Mrs. Lyman explained timing is important and feels there is no reason to have additional road access; that would involve additional security gates and expense. Mayor McArthur stated that is only one item that was mentioned. He explained all parties need to come up with some other ideas before the next meeting. Mrs. Lyman stated other property owners in that area stated they do not have a need for the road. City Manager Gary Esplin explained one of the property owners may have a need for the road in the future since parking on that particular business is not adequate. St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Twelve Mrs. Lyman explained the road does not go that far. City Manager Gary Esplin stated the City can require a development to dedicate a roadway. Mayor McArthur advised all parties involved can have the discussion at a later time. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a zone change from PD Employment to PD Commercial on 1.89 acres to allow for development of a self-storage facility, outdoor RV storage, and private condominium hobby garages on 8.46 acres in the Sun River project. Sun River, applicant. City Planner Ray Snyder advised the request is the fifth amendment to the project and read excerpts from the Amended Zone Change Application No. 5 for the Sun River Planned Development (PD). He explained there are 2 requests; the first is for the zone change and the second if for a zone change amendment to add private hobby garages as a use. In addition, he presented maps and pictures depicting the layout. The applicant is requesting to complete the project in phases. Planning Commission has seen different generations of the proposal before coming to Council. He gave a bit of history of what has been presented previously to the Planning Commission. The plan includes 180 outdoor RV units to be accessed 24 hours a day with a key pad entrance, 34 self storage units and hobby garages. Councilmember Bunker inquired if the garages will have windows. The applicant stated there will not be any windows. Mr. Snyder explained the landscaping will be trees and shrubs with drip systems, no lawn turf will be permitted. There will be a 15 feet of landscaping along the frontage of the public streets. Building heights will not exceed 22 feet consisting of stucco and concrete tile roof. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. Councilmember Bunker commented she thinks hobby garages are a good idea; there may be a lot of need for them. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Pike to approve the zone change from PD Employment to PD Commercial by ordinance. Mr. Snyder clarified the zone change would be from PD to PD Commercial since the City does not have that designation. Councilmember Pike amended his motion as per the clarification. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Councilmember Bunker - aye Councilmember Almquist - aye Councilmember Pike - aye Councilmember Hughes - aye The vote was unanimous and 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 .31 acres to allow construction of a parking structure with eight parking spaces and a sport court on the parking structure roof at 1811 W. Canyon View Drive. Point Vista Condos HOA, applicant. City Planner Craig Harvey advised the request is to change the zone on one lot that is currently zoned R-1-10 and to amend the zone for the PD Point Vista Condos. He presented several photos which showed the location of the lot, site plan and adjacent properties. He explained although the lot is currently vacant, it previously had a single family home that was demolished due to problems resulting from the expansive soils on the site. The proposed set backs are approximately 30 feet in the front and 25-30 feet in the rear. He explained the request was tabled at previous Planning Commission meetings because more information was needed. In addition, St. George City Council Minutes December 6, 2012 Page Thirteen the Planning Commission advised the applicant to move the parking structure closer to the existing condos. It was moved about 10 feet to give a greater setback to the property owners to the north. He presented a photo showing how the adjacent property to the north would be in relation to the sport court. He stated the sport court will have retaining walls with chain link fencing around the front and on the side that faces the existing home. The height of the fence will not exceed 12 feet per the ordinance. During the Planning Commission meeting, the homeowner requested, and the Planning Commission agreed, a barrier or screen be installed for privacy. Fencing on the Las Palmas side will be approximately 8 feet. Retaining walls will be installed to help prevent further erosion to the Las Palmas property. Landscaping will match the existing Point Vista landscape. Councilmember Almquist inquired if staff has heard from the property owner to the east. Mr. Harvey stated yes, the property owners have requested the parking structure be moved toward Point Vista. They have spoken with Mr. Shaw regarding shrubs being planted to maintain their privacy. Jeff Shaw, president for Point Vista Condos HOA, stated the condos were purchased for vacation properties. He explained, at this time, they do not have covered parking at their location, however, they have an offer to purchase the property to build the parking structure. They have concerns regarding the cliff along the Las Palmas property with erosion; they would also like to clean up the property. Councilmember Bunker pointed out the previous home had to be demolished because of blue clay. She asked Mr. Shaw what kind of assurance does he have that this will not be an issue with the proposed structure. Mr. Shaw stated he has been working with a geo-technical engineer who has performed several studies in the area. The solution is to over excavate approximately 10 feet below the surface and bring in an engineer to fill. With regards to the home that was formally there, the engineer stated the soil was not prepared properly. Councilmember Bunker stated she knows of several buildings that have over excavated and still had issues. She is concerned that if the request is approved there may be soil issues in the future. Mr. Shaw stated he can appreciate her concerns. There is quite an investment in this project and they want things done right. Councilmember Bunker inquired if additional inspections will be done once they reach the 10 feet. Mr. Shaw explained there will be engineering site visits and inspections done along the way. City Manager Gary Esplin asked Mr. Shaw if there was a reason piers were not being used. Mr. Shaw stated if piers were used, the garage floor would need to be suspended as well. It is being done this way because it is the most cost effective. In addition, this is what the engineer recommended. City Manager Gary Esplin stated he owns a house approximately 500 feet away. He explained Sunbrook had been over excavated and filled with the best fill available; n...

Planning Commission Agenda 07/28/2009:
... (5:00 P.M.)Consider a request to modify the list of approved uses for the Sunbrook Ranch PD Commercial zone located at 415 South Dixie Drive by adding “dances for the general public” to the list of allowed uses. Ms. Andrea Riggs, applicant. Case No. 2008-ZC-017. (Note: This item was tabled at the June 23, 200 and July 14, 2009, Planning Commission meeting.)Craig Harvey presented this request and mentioned that this item has been tabled at two previous PC meetings to allow for a site visit on June 30th at 7:00 p.m. to see the facility and listen to the sound levels proposed for the dances. It was also tabled for a legal opinion on a temporary zoning action.The request is to consider a request to modify the list of approved uses for the Sunbrook Ranch PD Commercial zone located at 415 S. Dixie Drive by adding “dances for the general public” to the list of allowed uses.On Sept 4, 2008, the City Council approved a zone change for this property from M-2 (Manufacturing) to PD-COM (Planned Development Commercial) and PD-RES (Planned Development Residential) for the 17.35 acre property. A variety of residential and commercial uses were approved for the property including indoor soccer, retail shops, fitness and wellness facilities, call center, assisted and independent senior living units, and other uses. The applicant, Ms. Andrea Riggs, has a business license to do dance lessons, dance instruction and operate a fitness business at this location. She would now like approval to also have dances in the evening open to the public 2-3 nights per week. The dances would have a different focus, such as, “Over 40’s night”, Country/Line Dancing night, 80’s night, Singles night, and Disco night. The applicant requests approval to stay open until 11:30 pm for the dance nights, and fitness classes held 3 nights/ week (already permitted under the PD Zone) would run until 10 pm.Since this was not part of the original request or approval this proposed additional use requires approval from the City Council, upon a recommendation from the Planning Commission.Property owners within 500’ of the subject property have been notified of this public hearing so if the neighbors have concerns they have been invited to both the PC and CC hearings on this request. This PD zone amendment has also been noticed in the newspaper for 10 days prior to the public hearing.Issues:1. Neighborhood compatibility Dances, if not adequately supervised with appropriate security can be a source of excessive noise and loitering late into the night. The applicant states she will have the ‘necessary security’ for any weekend event which is geared toward younger groups. Also, the applicant has abandoned the idea of having some music outside, and now agrees to limit music to indoors.2. Parking The property has been approved for a variety of uses although at present there are very few up and running. The indoor soccer has begun and is approved for nightly soccer. The dance assembly area is approximately 4,900 sq ft which could accommodate a large number of persons.(capacity cannot exceed 950 under the Fire Dept occupancy limits). However under the city Parking standards, there must be at least one parking space for every 3.5 persons. Therefore an occupancy limit of 950persons would require 271 parking spaces. Therefore the PC should recommend a maximum capacity limit based on facility size (ie, 4,900 sq ft) and the available number of paved parking spaces. There are 280 parking spaces on the premises.3. Security The applicant should agree to provide security when such is deemed necessary by the St George Police Dept.4. Fire Code Requirements Any approval should be subject to meeting the fire code requirements as set forth by Kevin Taylor, Fire Marshall. The applicant has summarized those requirements in her Addendum.5. The applicant has taken steps to address noise, parking, fire code, and security issues. A representative from the Police Dept (Captain Rich Farnsworth) addressed security concerns at the last PC meeting. See the applicants “Addendum #2 dated July 8, 2009 for her revised dance proposal.6. The Assistant City Attorney (Joseph Farnsworth) has issued an opinion that zoning cannot be temporary for this request, and voluntary time restrictions offered by the applicant are not suitable because it amounts to a temporary zoning action.7. At the last PC meeting it was mentioned that the city “Public Dance Hall” ordinance makes it unlawful for noise to be heard beyond 100’ from the premises where the sound originates. Therefore the city can rely on this ordinance to address noise concerns( see Ordinance 3-2A-4 attached).8. A 6’ solid fence or wall is required adjacent to the residential properties on the north and south sides. Such a wall presently exists along most of the property line, however there are a couple of gaps on the south (or east) side near the driveway, and when cars exit the property at night the headlights shine into the residential property. The commercial property owner (Marv Blosch) has been made aware of this problem and has agreed to correct it.The public hearing was opened.Andrea Riggs, the applicant came to the podium. She said being open on weekends until 11:30 p.m. is a big deal to her. She discussed this with a few neighbors and they had made suggestions. She said the opportunity for her and for her business is at this facility and this facility only. She said this is a retirement community here; however it is also a college community and has high school students here. She believes the Commissioners understand her intentions.Connie Hauser came to the podium. She said she attends the Zumba classes and stated that it has been a lot of fun for her. When she heard about the dance club, she was excited. She is a resident of Sunbrook, the parent of four teenaged children and she feels that the children here need something to do. She always feels that a dance club gives adults such as her something to do also. She feels that it presents a good option for people.Ms. Hutchens came to the podium. She works for the Learning Center for Families and said that she feels this is great to have a place to go to de-stress for a night. She feels that they need something like this on this end of town.Fred Tucker said he represents a small portion of the college age students in this community. He thinks the city needs a program like this to the City and feels that it will be a positive influence in the area and will people something different to do. The public hearing was closed to the public.Commissioner Read asked how to add in the restrictions or conditions that had been discussed. Assistant City Attorney Farnsworth said that if the Planning Commission does decide that they do want to recommend approval to the City Council, it would be by amending the PD text to include this as a permitted use with the following conditions and outlining the ones considered appropriate. The findings should say why this PD zone is suited for this use, whereas other PD zones in other parts of the City may not be as uniquely suited for this use. That would help protect the City from future applicants coming in where the site may not work well. Commissioner Burks mentioned security and the need to have it available when all events are taking place, not just the dancing part of it.Assistant City Attorney Joseph Farnsworth mentioned Code 3-2A-4 and that it mentions security being in place for public dance halls. The City Code also has requirements that state they must be over 21 years old and they can’t have a criminal history in the previous 2 years or during the course of employment. As far as whether or not tonight you can mandate the security for the other uses there, that is not an issue before the Planning Commission tonight. Commissioner Taylor wonders if some other alternative that could restrain the days and hours of the week.Assistant City Attorney Farnsworth said you could amend the PD text of the ordinance of this particular application to show that their situation is unique and give specific findings as to why. You need to be as specific as possible.MOTION: Commissioner Hullinger made a motion to amend the PD text for the following reasons: the proximity of the neighbors, that they walked the perimeter and the distance is more than the 100 ft. in the dance club ordinance, the client is willing to provide security, and the dance club will be closed at 9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Friday and Sat closing at 11:30 p.m., With those findings she makes a motion to amend the PD text. DISCUSSION: Commissioner Nobis mentioned the need to address the parking, limiting the number of people, that it needs to meet the fire codes and they need to have a special event permit for the weekends.Commissioner Hullinger said that she accepts that.Commissioner Nobis said he has come up with 270 parking spaces if you have the 950 people that were discussed. Commissioner Taylor asked if she was ok with the hours of operation and the answer was yes. Today Ms Riggs offered to have the hours be Monday through Thursday until 9:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday until 11:30 p.m. It will be closed on Sunday. Commissioner Nobis questioned if she mentioned security and Commissioner Hullinger said yes she did, the applicant is willing to provide security. Commissioner Read stated he would like to see in there that based on what Captain Farnsworth told them last time that she can provide private security for up to 100 people, after 100 people she needs to go to public security based on whatever Captain Farnsworth recommends, you need to follow the ordinance for the distance and the decibels, the doors being closed need to be stated specifically, specifically stating, so there are no issues, the policy board being up that no alcohol, a dress code, once they leave they pay to reenter, the outside security with a 15 minute restriction, one someone comes out the dance hall they are gone and not out in the parking lot the rest of the night. He thinks they need something that at the end of the music at 11:30, music shuts down and doesn’t keep playing and security has the parking lot cleared by midnight. He also thinks they need further restriction on the number of people even though parking lets you go up to 950, he thinks that’s too many in that location there which is between two subdivisions. Even though fire code and parking would let them go to 950 people, he thinks that is too many.Commissioner Hullinger asked if he thought 500 people was reasonable. Commissioner Read asked the applicant how many she was expecting. Andrea Riggs responded that 500 would be plenty. Commissioner Read said the City would allow a special events permit anytime you need it because they can approve specifics, but any outside event live band and any time you expect over 500 people would require a special events permit. Commissioner Hullinger said she accepts all of that in her motion. MOTION SECONDED: Commissioner Taylor seconded the motion. All voted aye, motion passes. Ms. Riggs came to the podium to explain her conversation with the police officer. Ms. Riggs said he stated that a sign should be up saying the rules, that there is a dress code, no gang affiliated representation, not being able to reenter, once you are out you are out and you have to pay to get back in, if you are sitting out in the parking lot then basically you will be kicked out. If there was a problem, he wanted to be notified, for example if someone came drunk, he would want to be notified of the potential situation. She said they are happy to do whatever they need to do. FURTHER DISCUSSION ON THE MOTION: Commissioner Read questioned Assistant City Attorney Farnsworth about being more restrictive so there is no precedent setting down the road. He wondering if they could add in that it has been commercial use for 50 years with Moore Business Forms there, so we don’t have a new development being able to come in adjacent to neighbors, whereas this one has already been established as some kind of use that is not conducive to the neighborhood already.Assistant City Attorney Farnsworth stated that would be a great finding to make to make sure this approval was site specific. Commissioner Read mentioned that he added it after the fact.Assistant City Attorney Farnsworth said that he can say it was one of the reasons why he made that motion.Commissioner Read said an industrial zone then, with the uses being the uses that are there. Assistant City Attorney Farnsworth said to make it clear you can say not in residential for the past 30 some years that it’s been commercial or industrial or non residential use. Commissioner Read said on the dress code normal decency; lewdness provisions if anything revealing of a sexual nature you can take care of with the police anyway. 8. PUBLIC HEARING ON REVISED ANNEXATION POLICY PLAN (5:00 P.M.)Ray Snyder presented this policy plan and pointed out the process for adopting the revised annexation plan. Ray said he is not aware of any comments being received. The Acting Chairman opened the public hearing and invited all to come forward.No one came forward.MOTION: Commissioner Nobis made a motion to approve the revised annexation plan as designated by item # 8. Motion was seconded by Commissioner Taylor. All voted aye, motion passes. 9. ZONING REGULATION AMENDMENT (5:00 P.M.)A. A discussion of a proposal to provide provisions for “Short-term Rentals” by modifying Title 10 “Zoning Regulations,” Chapter 14 “Supplementary and Qualifying Regulations,” Section 10-14-22 “Short Term Leases of Residential Properties”; by changing Section 10-14-22-E “Residential Lease, Short Term, Prohibited” to provide for exceptions to allow short term rentals. Case No. 2009-DI-004.Assistant City Attorney Farnsworth presented this proposed code amendment, which is to allow short-term rentals where appropriate and where the transient nature of the occupants does not create a negative impact to the residential neighborhood. Protect residential neighborhoods and property values by promoting quiet, stable neighborhoods and limiting the commercial, transient nature created by short-term rentals.“Short-term rental” means the use, occupancy, rent or lease of a residential property or a portion thereof, for remuneration for a period of 30 days or less.Short-term rentals are presently allowed in commercial zones (ie, hotels), Bed & Breakfast Inns in Landmark sites, in a Resort Overlay Zone, and in specific areas of certain Planned Development projects which have short-term rentals approved as one of the PD zone uses. The Planned Development Residential projects with short term rentals include Las Palmas & Sports Village at Green Valley, Entrada, Sun River, and Sunbrook has a hotel site approved but not yet built. Also, there are a l...


City Council Minutes 07/17/2014:
...f Survey for the Lakes Development) which is located west and south of the Sunbrook Development and the Green Valley area, zoning is R-1-10. The developers propose to rearrange the parcels and sell the pods. As the pods are sold, they will return with final plats. ROADWAY DEDICATION PLATS: Todd Jacobsen presented the roadway dedication plat for 1) Plantations Drive and Alienta Drive located west and south of the Sunbrook Development and the Green Valley area, zoning is R-1-10 and 2) Lago Vista Drive, Alienta Drive, Sentieri Vista Drive Road located west and south of the Sunbrook Development and the Green Valley area, zoning is R-1-10. Per the agreement, as the parcels are sold and developed, that is when the roadways will be built. Rick Rosenberg, with Rosenberg and Associates, stated that St. George 730 LLC is the master developer. These pods, which vary in size, can be sold to a series of developers. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to approve the lot merger for Planning Commission item 3A for St. George 730 LLC and also the roadway dedication plan, Planning Commission items 3B and 3C. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Almquist. Councilmember Almquist inquired about what would happen if a pod is purchased that is not connected to an immediate adjacent roadway. Mr. Jacobsen stated that the roads are designed to connect to each pod. If the pod is further than where the road is build, they are required to build the road to the pod. City Attorney Shawn Guzman explained that this request is subject to a development agreement with the developer. If they were to develop a pod, they would have to develop a roadway into the pod as well as the arterial streets.

PUBLIC HEARING/FINAL PLAT AMENDMENT/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a final plat amendment for the Shinava Ridge Subdivision to move private ownership building pads 48 and 49 approximately 20 feet to the east. Kevan Bundy, applicant. Todd Jacobsen presented the final plat amendment for the Shinava Ridge Subdivision. The purpose of the amendment is to move private ownership building pads 48 and 49 approximately 20 feet to the east, toward the cul-de-sac. The property is located at 2549 West Sinagua Trail. He explained that since the applicant did not receive 100% of the consents from the other parcel owners, a public hearing is required. St. George City Council Minutes July 17, 2014 Page Six Councilmember Almquist stated that some of the lots that did not give consent are owned by the developer. He asked, of the eight consents received, if they are residents or neighbors to the lots within a certain distance. Mr. Jacobsen stated he did not know which eight property owners consented. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised he would like to make sure the correct terminology is being used. The law requires consent from those in the same plat. Additionally, he noticed a spelling error on the public hearing notice, therefore he advises to open and continue the public hearing until the next regular City Council meeting. Councilmember Bowcutt asked if the common area would change. Mr. Jacobsen stated that only the limited common area is being changed. Mayor Pike opened the public hearing. Hugh Larratt-Smith, owner of the two lots, stated that he bought the lots approximately three years ago. Originally, their plan was to build two homes, one on each lot. Both lots presented some challenges with respect to building. In December of 2001, they appeared before the Entrada Design Review Committee (EDRC) presenting a building plan. At that time, they were told that they needed to do some further design. Over the last two and a half years, they have developed a number of plans to make the lots buildable. They have gone before the Entrada Property Owner’s Association (EPOA) as well as the EDRC with hopes of achieving a consensual plan that the committee supported. The EPOA and the EDRC has signed off on the amendment that is being proposed tonight. City planning staff reviewed and sign off on the amendment as well. The plan is respectful of the St. George building codes. In accordance with its protocol, the EPOA reached out to all neighbors explaining the amendment, eight responded. Ronald Dallin, owner of lot 56, stated that he was made aware of the potential change in April. He mentioned that Utah Code 10-9a-606 1(a) and (ii) requires at least 75% of the lot or unit owners to agree to the change. His brother, who owns a lot in this subdivision received a letter early on, however, he received his letter almost a month later. He urged the Councilmembers not to approve this request until all of the required processes are taken care of. This amendment will affect him financially and moves the home directly in front of his view of Snow Canyon. Brett Henke with Kuma Engineering clarified that with regard to the notification, Mr. Dallin was skipped on the list. As soon as he found out that his letter was missed, one was sent to him, postponing the process. There was not intent to sneak something past the residents, it was an oversight. Councilmember Almquist inquired if the actual footprint moves. He would like to see a photo depicting the existing and future pad. Additionally, he is not sure that Mr. Dallin’s view will be impacted. Mr. Henke stated that the pad shifts forward toward the cul-de-sac. He has a google earth image showing where the pads will be placed. The rooftop will be below the ridgeline. City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that the Council is not approving the design of the house at this time. He clarified that the Council does not see the plans that show where the home will be placed. If the request is approved, the owners can build whatever is allowed to be built per the HOA and City ordinance. Mr. Jacobsen presented photos which depict the original and moved position. Mr. Henke commented that he has two additional photos however, due to technical difficulties, the photos would not load. He stated that lots 48 and 49 are not higher in elevation than lot 56. The ridge is approximately 17 feet; the HOA does not want to cut that down. The owners did not want to amend the plat, it was not their idea to move the pads forward. St. George City Council Minutes July 17, 2014 Page Seven Mayor Pike stated that since this item will be continued, Mr. Henke can return to the next meeting to bring the additional pictures. Kate Larratt-Smith clarified that they have been involved with this process for several years. They have tried to be compliant and cooperate with the suggestions of the committees. This is not their favorite plan. She can sympathize with her neighbor, Mr. Dallin. The current plan allows for a 5-foot cut to the berm. There is a 17-foot cliff on their side of the lot that concerns her. She explained that their floor base is approximately 17 feet below the floor base of their neighbor and the maximum allowed height is 15 feet. Mr. Dallin’s view may or may not be blocked. Currently, he has a 360-degree view, when a home is built on the south he will not have that same view. She is asking for a decision today as their lives have been put on hold economically. Mr. Larratt-Smith stated that EDRC and the EPOA members include the former CFO of the Entrada Company as well as two real estate attorneys. He explained that during the process, the code that Mr. Dallin mentioned was not raised. Additionally, it is only applicable to common land. What they are addressing is limited common and private land. He asked if he can be allowed to show a picture that proves his neighbor’s view will not be taken away. City Attorney Shawn Guzman stated that since the picture was not included in the agenda packet and the public is not able to view it due to technical difficulties, he advised the applicant to wait until the next meeting to present the picture. Mayor Pike explained that the public hearing will be continued due to a misspelling, therefore, the applicant can bring the picture back. City Attorney Shawn Guzman commented that he agrees that State law applies to common area or community area, however, this is limited common area, therefore, the code referred to by Mr. Dallin does not apply. State code allows for an final plat amendment by advertising and holding a public hearing. A misspelling may seem like a technicality, however, he wants to make sure that the public hearing is advertised correctly. He stated that this is a separate process from the HOA process. If neighbors were not informed of the HOA meetings, they would need to address that with the HOA. The City Council has the latitude to either approve or deny this. Mr. Larratt-Smith stated that the HOA signed the plan. He wished to reiterate that his lots are 17 feet lower than his objecting neighbor. Since they are not allowed to build higher than 15 feet, the neighbor’s view will not be taken away. Mayor Pike suggested to continue the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to continue the public hearing to August 7, 2014. 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.

Bob Hermandson, applicant. St. George City Council Minutes July 17, 2014 Page Eight Todd Jacobsen presented the final plat amendment for Southgate View Subdivision. The purpose of the amendment is to merge lots 11 and 12 into one lot. Also, the public utility and drainage easement will be vacated. Mayor Pike opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to approve the final plat amendment for Southgate View to merge lots 11 and 12 and to vacate the public drainage easement. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Randall.

PUBLIC HEARING/FINAL PLAT AMENDMENT/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a final plat amendment for the Primrose Pointe Subdivision Phase 3 amending the language in Note #9. Bob Hermandson, applicant. Todd Jacobsen presented the request for a final plat amendment for the Primrose Pointe Subdivision Phase 3. With regard to the walkout basement note #9, the amended language includes: “unless otherwise approved by the City of St. George Public Works Department based on a site plan that meets all applicable City Standards, including but not limited to, grading and setback standards and requirements.”. He explained that the note is being changed because there was a wall built in front of lot 2. If the owner was required to build a walkout basement, they would have to re-grade the entire lot. Councilmember Almquist commented that there may be several lots that this applies to in that area. Mayor Pike opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Bowcutt to approve the final amendment for Primrose Pointe Subdivision Phase 3 changing the language on Note #9. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Arial.

PUBLIC HEARING/DESIGNATING HOME A CITY LANDMARK SITE: Public hearing to consider designating the home at 252 North Main Street a City Landmark Site. David Walker, applicant. Craig Harvey presented the request to designate the home at 252 North Main Street a City Landmark Site. The home is called the Julia Graff Home. He stated that the home was build in 1917 by Albert Miller and then occupied by Julia Graff and her family until the late 1980's. The intent of the proposed property owner is to pursue a conditional use permit to St. George City Council Minutes July 17, 2014 Page Nine use the home as a vacation rental property similar to several other historic landmark properties of the City. Councilmember Bowcutt asked who has applied for this request. Mr. Harvey replied that the Historic Preservation Committee recommended approval, however Mr. Walker has applied as he is the prospective property owner. Scott Fuller, real estate agent for the applicant, stated that Mr. Walker has a history of restoring historical homes. His offer to purchase the property is contingent upon being able to restore the property. Mr. Harvey explained that designating the home as a City landmark allows the owner to have limited commercial use if a conditional use permit is approved. Under the Landmark Ordinance, there are four requirements to designate the property as a landmark property. He outlined the requirements. Mayor Pike opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Almquist to designate the site at 252 North Main Street, commonly known as the Julia Graff Home, a Landmark Site in the City of St. George. 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.

Planning Commission Minutes 07/28/2009:
... (5:00 P.M.)Consider a request to modify the list of approved uses for the Sunbrook Ranch PD Commercial zone located at 415 South Dixie Drive by adding “dances for the general public” to the list of allowed uses. Ms. Andrea Riggs, applicant. Case No. 2008-ZC-017. (Note: This item was tabled at the June 23, 200 and July 14, 2009, Planning Commission meeting.)Craig Harvey presented this request and mentioned that this item has been tabled at two previous PC meetings to allow for a site visit on June 30th at 7:00 p.m. to see the facility and listen to the sound levels proposed for the dances. It was also tabled for a legal opinion on a temporary zoning action.The request is to consider a request to modify the list of approved uses for the Sunbrook Ranch PD Commercial zone located at 415 S. Dixie Drive by adding “dances for the general public” to the list of allowed uses.On Sept 4, 2008, the City Council approved a zone change for this property from M-2 (Manufacturing) to PD-COM (Planned Development Commercial) and PD-RES (Planned Development Residential) for the 17.35 acre property. A variety of residential and commercial uses were approved for the property including indoor soccer, retail shops, fitness and wellness facilities, call center, assisted and independent senior living units, and other uses. The applicant, Ms. Andrea Riggs, has a business license to do dance lessons, dance instruction and operate a fitness business at this location. She would now like approval to also have dances in the evening open to the public 2-3 nights per week. The dances would have a different focus, such as, “Over 40’s night”, Country/Line Dancing night, 80’s night, Singles night, and Disco night. The applicant requests approval to stay open until 11:30 pm for the dance nights, and fitness classes held 3 nights/ week (already permitted under the PD Zone) would run until 10 pm.Since this was not part of the original request or approval this proposed additional use requires approval from the City Council, upon a recommendation from the Planning Commission.Property owners within 500’ of the subject property have been notified of this public hearing so if the neighbors have concerns they have been invited to both the PC and CC hearings on this request. This PD zone amendment has also been noticed in the newspaper for 10 days prior to the public hearing.Issues:1. Neighborhood compatibility Dances, if not adequately supervised with appropriate security can be a source of excessive noise and loitering late into the night. The applicant states she will have the ‘necessary security’ for any weekend event which is geared toward younger groups. Also, the applicant has abandoned the idea of having some music outside, and now agrees to limit music to indoors.2. Parking The property has been approved for a variety of uses although at present there are very few up and running. The indoor soccer has begun and is approved for nightly soccer. The dance assembly area is approximately 4,900 sq ft which could accommodate a large number of persons.(capacity cannot exceed 950 under the Fire Dept occupancy limits). However under the city Parking standards, there must be at least one parking space for every 3.5 persons. Therefore an occupancy limit of 950persons would require 271 parking spaces. Therefore the PC should recommend a maximum capacity limit based on facility size (ie, 4,900 sq ft) and the available number of paved parking spaces. There are 280 parking spaces on the premises.3. Security The applicant should agree to provide security when such is deemed necessary by the St George Police Dept.4. Fire Code Requirements Any approval should be subject to meeting the fire code requirements as set forth by Kevin Taylor, Fire Marshall. The applicant has summarized those requirements in her Addendum.5. The applicant has taken steps to address noise, parking, fire code, and security issues. A representative from the Police Dept (Captain Rich Farnsworth) addressed security concerns at the last PC meeting. See the applicants “Addendum #2 dated July 8, 2009 for her revised dance proposal.6. The Assistant City Attorney (Joseph Farnsworth) has issued an opinion that zoning cannot be temporary for this request, and voluntary time restrictions offered by the applicant are not suitable because it amounts to a temporary zoning action.7. At the last PC meeting it was mentioned that the city “Public Dance Hall” ordinance makes it unlawful for noise to be heard beyond 100’ from the premises where the sound originates. Therefore the city can rely on this ordinance to address noise concerns( see Ordinance 3-2A-4 attached).8. A 6’ solid fence or wall is required adjacent to the residential properties on the north and south sides. Such a wall presently exists along most of the property line, however there are a couple of gaps on the south (or east) side near the driveway, and when cars exit the property at night the headlights shine into the residential property. The commercial property owner (Marv Blosch) has been made aware of this problem and has agreed to correct it.The public hearing was opened.Andrea Riggs, the applicant came to the podium. She said being open on weekends until 11:30 p.m. is a big deal to her. She discussed this with a few neighbors and they had made suggestions. She said the opportunity for her and for her business is at this facility and this facility only. She said this is a retirement community here; however it is also a college community and has high school students here. She believes the Commissioners understand her intentions.Connie Hauser came to the podium. She said she attends the Zumba classes and stated that it has been a lot of fun for her. When she heard about the dance club, she was excited. She is a resident of Sunbrook, the parent of four teenaged children and she feels that the children here need something to do. She always feels that a dance club gives adults such as her something to do also. She feels that it presents a good option for people.Ms. Hutchens came to the podium. She works for the Learning Center for Families and said that she feels this is great to have a place to go to de-stress for a night. She feels that they need something like this on this end of town.Fred Tucker said he represents a small portion of the college age students in this community. He thinks the city needs a program like this to the City and feels that it will be a positive influence in the area and will people something different to do. The public hearing was closed to the public.Commissioner Read asked how to add in the restrictions or conditions that had been discussed. Assistant City Attorney Farnsworth said that if the Planning Commission does decide that they do want to recommend approval to the City Council, it would be by amending the PD text to include this as a permitted use with the following conditions and outlining the ones considered appropriate. The findings should say why this PD zone is suited for this use, whereas other PD zones in other parts of the City may not be as uniquely suited for this use. That would help protect the City from future applicants coming in where the site may not work well. Commissioner Burks mentioned security and the need to have it available when all events are taking place, not just the dancing part of it.Assistant City Attorney Joseph Farnsworth mentioned Code 3-2A-4 and that it mentions security being in place for public dance halls. The City Code also has requirements that state they must be over 21 years old and they can’t have a criminal history in the previous 2 years or during the course of employment. As far as whether or not tonight you can mandate the security for the other uses there, that is not an issue before the Planning Commission tonight. Commissioner Taylor wonders if some other alternative that could restrain the days and hours of the week.Assistant City Attorney Farnsworth said you could amend the PD text of the ordinance of this particular application to show that their situation is unique and give specific findings as to why. You need to be as specific as possible.MOTION: Commissioner Hullinger made a motion to amend the PD text for the following reasons: the proximity of the neighbors, that they walked the perimeter and the distance is more than the 100 ft. in the dance club ordinance, the client is willing to provide security, and the dance club will be closed at 9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Friday and Sat closing at 11:30 p.m., With those findings she makes a motion to amend the PD text. DISCUSSION: Commissioner Nobis mentioned the need to address the parking, limiting the number of people, that it needs to meet the fire codes and they need to have a special event permit for the weekends.Commissioner Hullinger said that she accepts that.Commissioner Nobis said he has come up with 270 parking spaces if you have the 950 people that were discussed. Commissioner Taylor asked if she was ok with the hours of operation and the answer was yes. Today Ms Riggs offered to have the hours be Monday through Thursday until 9:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday until 11:30 p.m. It will be closed on Sunday. Commissioner Nobis questioned if she mentioned security and Commissioner Hullinger said yes she did, the applicant is willing to provide security. Commissioner Read stated he would like to see in there that based on what Captain Farnsworth told them last time that she can provide private security for up to 100 people, after 100 people she needs to go to public security based on whatever Captain Farnsworth recommends, you need to follow the ordinance for the distance and the decibels, the doors being closed need to be stated specifically, specifically stating, so there are no issues, the policy board being up that no alcohol, a dress code, once they leave they pay to reenter, the outside security with a 15 minute restriction, one someone comes out the dance hall they are gone and not out in the parking lot the rest of the night. He thinks they need something that at the end of the music at 11:30, music shuts down and doesn’t keep playing and security has the parking lot cleared by midnight. He also thinks they need further restriction on the number of people even though parking lets you go up to 950, he thinks that’s too many in that location there which is between two subdivisions. Even though fire code and parking would let them go to 950 people, he thinks that is too many.Commissioner Hullinger asked if he thought 500 people was reasonable. Commissioner Read asked the applicant how many she was expecting. Andrea Riggs responded that 500 would be plenty. Commissioner Read said the City would allow a special events permit anytime you need it because they can approve specifics, but any outside event live band and any time you expect over 500 people would require a special events permit. Commissioner Hullinger said she accepts all of that in her motion. MOTION SECONDED: Commissioner Taylor seconded the motion. All voted aye, motion passes. Ms. Riggs came to the podium to explain her conversation with the police officer. Ms. Riggs said he stated that a sign should be up saying the rules, that there is a dress code, no gang affiliated representation, not being able to reenter, once you are out you are out and you have to pay to get back in, if you are sitting out in the parking lot then basically you will be kicked out. If there was a problem, he wanted to be notified, for example if someone came drunk, he would want to be notified of the potential situation. She said they are happy to do whatever they need to do. FURTHER DISCUSSION ON THE MOTION: Commissioner Read questioned Assistant City Attorney Farnsworth about being more restrictive so there is no precedent setting down the road. He wondering if they could add in that it has been commercial use for 50 years with Moore Business Forms there, so we don’t have a new development being able to come in adjacent to neighbors, whereas this one has already been established as some kind of use that is not conducive to the neighborhood already.Assistant City Attorney Farnsworth stated that would be a great finding to make to make sure this approval was site specific. Commissioner Read mentioned that he added it after the fact.Assistant City Attorney Farnsworth said that he can say it was one of the reasons why he made that motion.Commissioner Read said an industrial zone then, with the uses being the uses that are there. Assistant City Attorney Farnsworth said to make it clear you can say not in residential for the past 30 some years that it’s been commercial or industrial or non residential use. Commissioner Read said on the dress code normal decency; lewdness provisions if anything revealing of a sexual nature you can take care of with the police anyway. 8. PUBLIC HEARING ON REVISED ANNEXATION POLICY PLAN (5:00 P.M.)Ray Snyder presented this policy plan and pointed out the process for adopting the revised annexation plan. Ray said he is not aware of any comments being received. The Acting Chairman opened the public hearing and invited all to come forward.No one came forward.MOTION: Commissioner Nobis made a motion to approve the revised annexation plan as designated by item # 8. Motion was seconded by Commissioner Taylor. All voted aye, motion passes. 9. ZONING REGULATION AMENDMENT (5:00 P.M.)A. A discussion of a proposal to provide provisions for “Short-term Rentals” by modifying Title 10 “Zoning Regulations,” Chapter 14 “Supplementary and Qualifying Regulations,” Section 10-14-22 “Short Term Leases of Residential Properties”; by changing Section 10-14-22-E “Residential Lease, Short Term, Prohibited” to provide for exceptions to allow short term rentals. Case No. 2009-DI-004.Assistant City Attorney Farnsworth presented this proposed code amendment, which is to allow short-term rentals where appropriate and where the transient nature of the occupants does not create a negative impact to the residential neighborhood. Protect residential neighborhoods and property values by promoting quiet, stable neighborhoods and limiting the commercial, transient nature created by short-term rentals.“Short-term rental” means the use, occupancy, rent or lease of a residential property or a portion thereof, for remuneration for a period of 30 days or less.Short-term rentals are presently allowed in commercial zones (ie, hotels), Bed & Breakfast Inns in Landmark sites, in a Resort Overlay Zone, and in specific areas of certain Planned Development projects which have short-term rentals approved as one of the PD zone uses. The Planned Development Residential projects with short term rentals include Las Palmas & Sports Village at Green Valley, Entrada, Sun River, and Sunbrook has a hotel site approved but not yet built. Also, there are a l...

City Manager Gary Esplin advised that the cost per square foot will be set by appraisal. ABANDONMENT RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution abandoning the easement between Lots 42 and 43 of Bloomington Hills Subdivision Phase 10. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the owner of Lots 42 and 43 in the Bloomington Hills No. 10 Subdivision would like to combine both lots into one. A motion was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to approve the abandonment by resolution as requested. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. SET PUBLIC HEARINGS: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held May 14, 2002, recommended that public hearings be scheduled for June 6, 2002 at 5:00 p.m. to consider an amended PD zone for Entrada by adding approximately 81 acres and 114 residential units to the original PD, and to consider a zone change from R-1-40 to PD Commercial and also amend the existing PD Commercial building elevations and uses on property located north of the Flying J station on the northeast corner of Brigham Road and I-15. A motion was made by Council Member Allen and seconded by Council Member Gardner to set the public hearings as recommended by the Planning Commission. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. SET PUBLIC HEARINGS: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held May 14, 2002, recommended that public hearings be scheduled for June 20, 2002 at 5:00 p.m. to consider approval of the updated General Plan and Land Use Map for the City, and a zone change from R-1-10 to AP for property located at approximately 115 South Mall Drive. A motion was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to set the public hearings as recommended by the Planning Commission. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: St. George City Council Minutes May 16, 2002 Page Eleven Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PRELIMINARY PLAT: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held May 14, 2002, recommended approval of the amended preliminary plat to reconfigure the phases, include six more lots, and extend the project boundary for The Knolls at Little Valley located at 2800 South River Road. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that approval of this amended preliminary plat will allow 83% of the lots on the interior to be platted and built without any improvements to the 80' right-of-way along Phase 3. Mayor McArthur inquired how the City could ensure that the frontage is improved. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that an agreement could be entered into that would require retention of a certain amount of funds to cover the cost of road improvements for a certain amount of property. Otherwise there is no guarantee that Phase 3 will ever be built and the road improved. Mayor McArthur commented that this is a tough issue for the rest of the City, as the interior will look good but the frontage not completed. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised that the City could require the frontage be improved before the permits are drawn. City Manager Gary Esplin recommended that staff review plans for improving the frontage with the developer before the final plat is approved. Council Member Whatcott commented that this problem is not unique to this project alone, as it needs to be addressed all over town. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that some of the frontage improvement costs are the City's on 80 foot roads. Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the construction drawings and improvement plan for this phase of the project are different from what was approved, and needs to be addressed. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch commented that in preliminary discussions with Kevin Ence, he agreed to contribute a certain amount to an escrow fund which could be applied to improvement of the road as each lot is sold. This has been confirmed with the City Engineer, and the terms are acceptable to the Engineering Department. A motion was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to approve the preliminary plat subject to making arrangements with the City for improvement of the 80' road. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. Council Member Whatcott stated that he was not in favor of the plat approval unless arrangements were made for improvement of the road.

The lot split would have one main access off of Dixie Downs Road, which would be a joint access easement for both parcels. A joint access easement with property to the east is also proposed. A motion was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to approve the lot split as recommended by the Planning Commission. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. St. George City Council Minutes May 16, 2002 Page Thirteen CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider a request for approval of a conditional use permit for two temporary modular classrooms at Sunhawk Academy located at 948 North 1300 West. Sarah Weston, agent for Sunhawk Academy, applicant. This item was withdrawn from the agenda at the request of the applicant. CLARIFICATION OF PD ZONE AT HIDDEN VALLEY: Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Hidden Valley Condominiums construction drawings are in the review process. A designated area for RV parking/storage within an enclosed six foot fence is shown on the plans. This was not shown on the plans or described in the PD text which was previously approved. Staff feels the City Council should be aware of the change and either accept or deny it. If the City Council is comfortable with the RV parking/storage, staff recommends that a solid wall, not of wood or chain link with slats, be required around the RV parking area. The applicants are willing to put up a solid wall if the area is approved for RV and boat parking and storage. A motion was made by Council Member Allen and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to approve the change to the PD as requested subject to construction of a solid wall around the parking/storage area.

A motion was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Allen to approve the airport use agreement as requested. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

A motion was made by Council Member Allen and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to approve the airport use agreement as presented. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Gardner - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. St. George City Council Minutes May 16, 2002 Page Fifteen TASK ORDER AT NEW AIRPORT: Consider approval of a Task Order for work to be done at the new airport. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch advised that the City is rapidly moving into a program management phase with regard to the replacement airport, and the task orders are another step on the ladder. Carter Burgess will do the work as authorized, which is to do a base line budget or the absolute minimum cost to build the airport, and then an estimate for a first-class airport. The City will then know the ranges for required funding. A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott and seconded by Council Member Gardner to approve the task order as requested. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that Mr. Bulloch has been instructed to utilize the new Airport Manager who is coming on board June 3 as much as possible to reduce the per hour charges of the consultant, which are very high. The City's new Airport Manager is currently the manager of the airport in Cody, Wyoming which has as many enplanements a year as St. George (40,000).

MISCELLANEOUS LETTERS: Mayor McArthur read several letters of concern from citizens. FT. PEARCE WASH EQUIPMENT RENTAL: City Manager Gary Esplin advised that several property owners along the Ft. Pearce Wash have been doing excavation of the wash while receiving little payment for it. The City did not have to bid this out because the adjacent property owners are doing the work. Quality Excavation who owns the point in the subdivision, would like to do the excavation and is approaching $35,000 in costs. The City has been negotiating with them while they are improving and shoring up the wash and protecting their own property. Adjacent property owners have done $3 million dollars worth of work in the wash. It was the consensus of the City Council to continue the program. DISCUSSION RE WATER: City Manager Gary Esplin explained that when the Santa Clara River dries up in June or July, and since the West City Springs is no longer in the ditches, the City will be out of irrigation water at the Southgate Golf Course, Tonaquint Park and cemetery. Their sole source of water is the Santa Clara River with supplementation from the West City Springs. Wells water the original 18 holes of Sunbrook, but the new 9 holes are watered by the Santa Clara River. The well used to water Sunbrook is the old Landon Frei well and supplements Entrada and the Canyon...


City Council Minutes 06/08/2000:
...lf Director Dave Terry advised that the City’s premiere golf course, Sunbrook, is not paying its way. There is a possibility it may break even this year in the best case scenario, but as the City’s golf courses are not supported by taxes, the other golf courses must make up the difference if Sunbrook does not operate in the black. He stated that additional money for capital improvements at all City courses is needed, especially in light of the additional competition from Sun River and Coral Canyon, and the City must be more conscientious about the condition of its golf courses. The City has been trying to build a rainy day fund for its golf courses, but last year the courses only broke even. If bad weather occurs in the City’s prime golfing season (February through May), the City could stand to lose a great deal. He recommended that a new green fee structure be implemented, and the resident and non-resident fee structure be eliminated. He proposed that a peak season, weekday, weekend structure be implemented for everyone, regardless of resident status. He proposed that the City go to a three season fee schedule. Councilmember Orton inquired how the City’s current rates compared to other courses. Mr. Terry replied the City has a competitive advantage based on price, and that must be kept in mind when the fees are restructured. Councilmember Orton commented he did not want to penalize residents, but the City must be competitive. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested the new rates be implemented as soon as possible. He commented that the City should be comparing its golf fees to other sunbelt areas, and almost without exception they have a three season fee structure. He suggested a public hearing be held to receive input from the public. Mayor McArthur suggested the matter be scheduled on the June 15, 2000 City Council agenda. Mr. Esplin reported that within two months the City should know more about the Sunbrook Clubhouse situation. He advised the City could extend its bonds for three more years which would generate enough capital to build the clubhouse and make needed improvements at all the courses. Golf Director Dave Terry proposed that fees be raised at Sunbrook during the off-season to $36 weekdays, $40 weekends, and during th...


City Council Minutes 03/01/2007:
...ing to consider approval of the preliminary plat for The Pointe Phase 3 at Sunbrook located north of the intersection of Lost Creek Drive and Emeraud Drive. Sunhill Homes, applicant. Project Engineer Cathy Hasfurther explained that the property borders the current Santa Clara/St. George boundary. The applicants propose a 15 lot subdivision which borders the Santa Clara River. Three 20' maintenance accesses to the river have been provided. The applicant has done an additional erosion study and is doing more protection above that done by the NRCS. The cul-de-sac is 1000' long. The Fire Department had concerns with its length and talked with Rick Rosenberg, the applicant?s engineer, about St. George City Council Minutes March 1, 2007 Page Seven obtaining a letter that says a connection will be extended, either to St. George or Santa Clara. This connection will occur when development next to the project occurs. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Stan Dunbar advised that he lives three houses down from the project. Land and trees were lost during the flood and his major concern is if the rip rap will be done to federal standards. He stated that tremendous erosion has taken place and will continue to do so if certain rip rap standards are not met. He also expressed concern about further removal of trees due to development and inquired if there will be a separate construction access and walking paths. He requested clarification of the cul-de-sac becoming a through street. Ms. Hasfurther replied that an erosion berm will be built with placed rock, not dumped rock, as the property is within the erosion hazard boundary. If adjacent development occurs, the cul-de-sac will become a through street. Mr. Dunbar inquired which governing body would make sure the rip rap was done correctly. Ms. Hasfurther replied that this would be done in conjunction with the applicant?s geotech engineer and approved by the City. Council Member Gardner inquired if the rip rap would extend beyond the culdesac. Ms. Hasfurther replied that the rip rap will extend around the culdesac to the point of the last building lot. She stated she would talk to Rick Rosenberg to see if he is interested in extending it into Santa Clara, but the City does not have control over what Santa Clara is doing. She advised that there is not another entrance for construction trucks because of the hill. Council Member Allen advised Mr. Dunbar that the City would make sure that the contractor does not track mud and keeps the streets clean. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that he did not know the plan for walking paths, but this can be addressed at the time of the final plat. He stated that at the time the final plat is approved, the City must be assured the rip rap will protect the site. Sunbrook owns some property past the development, but he was not sure how much. Ms. Hasfurther replied that she did not think Sunbrook owned much property past the site, but it will be evaluated at the time construction drawings are reviewed. She stated she did not think the trees would be saved. Wendy Cox advised that she owns property on both sides of the river and in the river bottom. She wanted to know if the rip rap rocks would be able to be seen, or would be covered with dirt, and she wanted to be sure that the trees on the other side of the river would not be touched and no one comes on their property during construction. Ms. Hasfurther replied that the rip rap would be below the water surface and would be exposed rock but would not encroach on Ms. Cox?s property. The rip rap will be located entirely on Sun Hill?s property. Mr. Dunbar commented that there was a cliff at the cul-de-sac and this would be a problem if it was not rip-rapped. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. Ms. Hasfurther suggested that the developer be asked to place an orange construction fence along the property lines. St. George City Council Minutes March 1, 2007 Page Eight City Manager Gary Esplin inquired why there was not a Sunbrook representative present to address these concerns. He suggested th...


City Council Minutes 12/21/2000:
... entryway at the Bellasera Subdivision (formerly Torrey Palms Townhomes at Sunbrook) subject to: (1) City Engineer review (2) The Homeowner’s Association will be responsible for maintenance of the structure and any repairs if damaged; and (3) The applicant will comply with the City Engineer’s requirements: (a) Minimum height should be 15’3" for resurfacing work; (b) The structure must be designed by a licensed engineer with a P.E. stamp; and (c) Structure calculations must be provided with the plans for review. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised that Fire Chief Robert Stoker reviewed the plans and elevations for the structure and it is suitable for fire trucks and engines to pass under. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve the arch covered entry gateway subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Gardner - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Isom - aye Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Whatcott - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. FINAL PLAT APPROVAL: Consider approval of the final plat for Pine View Commercial Center Subdivision. St. George City Council Minutes December 21, 2000 Page Five Councilmember Isom declared a conflict of interest as her employer is handling the title work for the project, but she advised she would participate. Councilmembers and staff commended Kent Garrett and Ron Read who spent many hours to bring this project to a successful conclusion. A motion to approve the final plat and authorize the Mayor to sign it was made by Councilmember Orton. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Whatcott - aye Councilmember Isom - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Gardner - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider a request for a conditional use permit for a retail/office building approximately 62 feet in height on the northeast corner of Main and Tabernacle Streets. Mans Jennings, applicant. Councilmember Gardner declared a conflict of interest and advised he would leave the stand. Councilmember Whatcott inquired if the rendering presented at this meeting was the same as the preliminary drawings shown previously to the Mayor and Council. Councilmember Gardner advised the only change is due to requirements for the elevator and mechanics on top of the building. The Historic Preservation Committee also requested that the upper part of the building be trimmed with a parapet or cornice for decoration. Additionally, the building has been broken up to show a series of buildings, rather than just one. He then left the stand. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised that the building is taller than 35’ as allowed by the ordinance, and a conditional use permit is therefore required. The height from the sidewalk grade to the general roof line is 62’, and there is a pyramid-shaped sun roof at 68’, with an elevator shaft up to 71’. Other buildings taller than 35’ include the Hampton Inn, the Fairfield Inn, Boulevard Furniture, the J&J office building, the Abbey Inn, and the Snow Nuffer building. A sensitive issue exists, however, because of the proposed building’s proximity to the Tabernacle. The top of the roofline of the Tabernacle measures 45’, and 117.5’ to the top of the steeple. The Planning Commission and Historic Preservation Committee had mixed emotions, but recommended approval because of the desire to have an economic investment in the downtown area. They felt the economic benefit balanced the scale relative to the height of the building vs. the Tabernacle. Gilbert Jennings advised he represented various owners in the project. He advised that earlier drawings depicted the south side of the building at 58’, but it is now 62’. A five level parking terrace is also proposed with the City participating in the cost of the structure to provide additional public parking in the downtown area. 550 parking spaces are proposed, with half needed for the proposed project, and the other half available for use as public parking. In order to have the building balance with the size of the parking structure, the size of the building was increased and additional property acquired. Southern Utah Office will relocate to another location in downtown St. George and triple the size of their operation. Mr. Jennings explained that not only will the proposed building provide needed parking, it will also boost the image of the downtown area. Village Bank will take 27,000 sq. ft. of space on the first floor, with hopes of retail taking the remainder of the first floor. St. George City Council Minutes December 21, 2000 Page Six A motion to approve the conditional use permit as requested was made by Councilmember Allen. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Isom. Councilmember Whatcott commented that while everyone feels strongly about protecting historic buildings and maintaining their visibility, the proposed project will enhance the downtown area. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that without an anchor similar to the proposed building, other downtown businesses will not thrive and an opportunity to do something to help the downtown area will be lost. There are more pluses than minuses related to the project, it is a good project for the City, and staff supports it. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Isom - aye Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Whatcott - aye Councilmember Gardner abstained from voting. The motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a zone change from R-2 Duplex Residential to C-3 Commercial on .317 acres located at 165 North 200 West. Frank Fisher, agent for the Catholic Church, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised that the Planning Commission recommended approval of the zone change request in order to convert a residence to a book store for the Catholic Church. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing and called for a motion. A motion was made by Councilmember Isom to approve, by ordinance, the zone change as requested. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Councilmember Isom - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Gardner - aye Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Whatcott - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a zone change from R-1-10 Single Family Residential to PD Planned Development for 8.67 acres located north of Entrada on the east side of Snow Canyon Parkway for an addition to The Cliffs at Snow Canyon project. Randy Deschamps/Rick Smith, agents for the applicants. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised the applicants propose to add 8.67 acres located to the northeast to the project. This change will add 15 units to the project, an increase from 185 units to 200, but density will still be less than two units per acre. The Planning Commission recommended approval. Councilmember Isom declared a conflict of interest due to her employment, but advised she would participate unless there were objections. St. George City Council Minutes December 21, 2000 Page Seven Randy Deschamps advised there are currently two patio homes under construction, and all the rest of the homes will be of similar construction, i.e. single story, with a southwest design, facade and color. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing and called for a motion. A motion was made by Councilmember Whatcott to approve, by ordinance, the zone change as requested. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Councilmember Whatcott - aye Councilmember Gardner - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Isom - aye Councilmember Orton - 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-1-10 Single Family Residential to PD Residential for The Plantations project located southwest of Sunbrook and west of Green Valley on 730.676 acres. Rick Rosenberg, agent for Group Management, Inc., applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised the project had previously been approved twice, but this modified plan adds 200 residential units and deletes 9 holes from the proposed golf course. Public and private streets are proposed, with an overall density of 3.1 units per acre, not including the golf course and community center. The first phase will have access off Sunbrook Drive, and at some time in the future later phases would consider access off of Canyon View. The Planning Commission unanimously recommended approval, subject to the final plats being phased subject to water connection availability. Sidewalks are proposed for only one side of private streets, but public streets will have sidewalk on both sides. Rick Rosenberg advised that 731 acres are involved in the zone change at this time, and the applicant is participating up to $560,000 in a special improvement district for the Santa Clara sewer trunkline and also participating in payment of up to $416,000 for the water line project to the new Green Valley water tank. He advised that even though the applicant has not been developing lots, it has been expending funds to begin the project, and anticipates closing development financing for the first phase in January. The applicant owns underground water rights in an amount more than enough for the golf course, but is still hopeful reuse water will be available so that an exchange for reuse water can be made with the City. Road cross sections include landscape buffers and will be pedestrian and bicycle-friendly. The project is targeted at families and not retirees. There appears to be an issue concerning Plantations Drive and its proximity to the back line of the Cottages North project. As much buffer as possible is being included in the project except with the exception of the area next to the Cottages North due to a 69kV power line which parallels the road. With help from the City, however, traffic lanes could be skimmed down along the section adjacent to the Cottages North to push the road as far as possible away from the Cottages North project. Even though the Cottages North Phase 2 project was built after the initial zone change for The Plantations, the applicant is trying to work to install as large a buffer as possible. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Jay Lundberg, a resident of Cottages North, distributed materials to the Mayor and Council and protested the placement of Plantations Drive as it passes the Cottages North development. He advised that as an arterial roadway with speed limits of 35-40 mph, the homes could suffer from crash danger and traffic volumes could rise to 20,000 cars per day. The volume of exhaust would be St. George City Council Minutes December 21, 2000 Page Eight substantial and the roadway would generate noise and light pollution at night. He advised that placement of Plantations Drive would have a significant impact on the value of 13 homes which would be affected by its close proximity. He requested a redesign of the roadway and its relocation 40’ to the west. He reviewed the handout materials with the Mayor and Council. Rick Rosenberg advised that traffic counts are projected at 344 cars per hour during peak hour in the year 2016. He advised that Plantations Drive is modeled after Sunbrook Drive and has the same cross section with landscaped medians, trav...

...nstallation of the golf course bridges which were purchased previously for Sunbrook and Southgate. Sue Swenson read the four bids that were received for this project as follows: 1. Samcor - $84,503; 2. Sunroc - $87,066; PCI, $83,419; Comm.Design, $87,124. PCI was the low bidder with $83,419, and Sue recommended accepting the low bid. Councilmember Gardner made a motion seconded by Councilmember Orton to accept the PCI bid of $83,419. All voted aye. ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance abandoning a portion of 100 West Street from Tabernacle to 100 South. Gary Esplin explained that the school district plans to build a new office building on 100 West and Tabernacle. It is proposed to abandon a portion of 100 West and sell it to the School District. The 2 homes at the south end of 100 West will still have access with a turn around, and that portion will not be abandoned. Councilmember Isom made a motion to abandon by ordinance a portion of 100 West Street. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner. Roll call vote: Voting aye, Councilmembers Whatcott, Orton, Isom, Allen and Gardner. The motion carried. PLANNING COMMISSION REPORT: CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Mark Bradley explained Nextel’s request to locate antennae on 2 sites in the City: (1) the Skyline Center at 301 North 200 East, and (2)on top of a light pole at Cooper Field on the Dixie College Campus. Nextel would replace the 87’ high pole at Cooper Field with a larger pole, replace the lights at 87’ with the 13’ antenna on top. Mr. Simone said the antenna dimension is 10’ per panel in a triangular shape. They are trying to avoid interference by going that height. Councilmember Whatcott said from the picture this appears to be on a light pole at Hurst Field. Mr. Simone said Mr. Carnahan said they could go to either location on the campus. There will be 4 antennae on each side of the triangle There is a possibility to share the pole at a location 13’ St. George City Council Minutes October 5, 2000 Page Three below this antennae. They would have to work out the interference problems. Councilmember Gardner said the one at the Elks Field is hardly noticeable. Mr. Simone said the location at Dixie College gives them the coverage they need. They could try to get as low as possible, but they need to avoid interference and get the best possible coverage. There was considerable discussion regarding different sites. Councilmember Orton suggested this be delayed to give the Council a chance to go out and look at the sites. Mr. Simone said he had no problem with that. Councilmember Orton suggested to bring it up at work meeting next week. Mr. Simone said the location is near a transformer and their ground equipment would be next to the fenced in transformer and wouldn’t be very visible. The antennae will be painted to match the background. The Council also want to visit the Skyline building site. Lucia Christensen, a property owner in the vicinity of the Skyline Center, presented a petition signed by 26 residents in the area requesting denial of the Skyline building antenna stating the antennae will be unsightly; they will detract from the natural beauty of the area; lower property values; possible unknown health hazards; exceeds the City code. Helen Stevens, who lives adjacent to the building, said she stopped at the City Office, but did not get any questions answered. She bought her home because of the view, and it is now being destroyed first by the building and now with antennae. Councilmember Orton made a motion seconded by Councilmember Whatcott to table this item so the Council can visit the sites. All voted aye. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider a request for a conditional use permit for the New Life Christian Center at 2025 South Circle. St. George City Council Minutes October 5, 2000 Page Four Mark Bradley explained the request to build a New Life Christian Center between the new Peach Tree Assisted Living Center and the I-15 Freeway on 2025 South Circle. Councilmember Gardner made a motion to approve the conditional use permit for a New Life Christian Center located east of Peach Tree Assisted Living Center on 2025 South Circle as presented. Councilmember Whatcott seconded the motion. All voted aye. PRELIMINARY PLAT: Consider approval of a preliminary plat for Crimson Cliffs Subdivision with 53 single family lots in an RE-20 Zone at 2560 E. 2450 S. Derrill Larkin, applicant. Mark Bradley said the Planning Commission approved this preliminary plat subject to obtaining an easement from the adjacent property owner on 2000 south to create a turn around. Councilmember Orton made a motion to grant approval of the preliminary plat for Crimson Cliffs Subdivision subject to obtaining an easement for a turn around on 2000 South. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Isom. All voted aye. PRELIMINARY PLAT: Consider approval of a preliminary plat for Torry Palms at Sunbrook with 77 units located on Sunbrook Drive. Marc & Evan Fonger, agents. Mark Bradley explained this is a much improved plan over the first one that was submitted in 1998 in that there are 10 less units in the project and the access and drainage have been improved. Councilmember Orton made a motion to approve the preliminary plat for Torry Palms at Sunbrook as presented. Councilmember Gardner seconded the motion. All v...


City Council Minutes 12/09/2004:
...2004, recommended approval of the preliminary plat for Bellsera Phase 4 at Sunbrook located off of Sunbrook Drive south of Crescent Point. Sunhill Homes, applicant. He explained that staff?s main concern was the subdivision?s proximity to Hole 2. Staff recommends that some of the units be redesigned to fall outside of the hazard area. The applicant is proposing a mitigation plan with clustering of trees. The Planning Commission recommends approval with the stipulation that a protection netting may be required at a later date if necessary, and to allow individual property owners to install a protection netting that would exceed six feet in height. If tree clustering is approved, the developer should put the trees in, but they would be located on City property. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that architect standards allow units to be built 150' from the centerline of a fairway. If trees are used for hazard mitigation, they should be located as close as possible to the tee rather than in front of the lots. The developer should be required to install as much mitigation as possible, locate the trees as close as possible to the tee, and make sure a hazard notation is included on the plat. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the preliminary plat subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission and City Manager. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that installation of protection netting could be addressed with the final plat. Council Member Gardner commented he would like installation of protection netting to be addressed with the final plat, and he would include this in his motion. St. George City Council Minutes December 9, 2004 Page Ten City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the applicant should work with City staff on placement of the trees. PRELIMINARY PLAT: Associate Planner Mark Bradley explained that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held November 23, 2004, recommended approval of the preliminary plat for Bella Vista at Sunbrook located off Luce Del Sol Drive at the southeasterly area of the Sunbrook development. Sunhill Homes, applicant. The Planning Commission r...


City Council Minutes 05/18/2006:
...ng to consider approval of the preliminary plat for Dolce Vista Phase 2 at Sunbrook located at the northwest corner of the intersection of Alienta Drive and Plantations Drive. Sunhill Homes, applicant. City Planner Mark Bradley explained that he would be discussing this preliminary plat along with a hillside development permit. He said the hillside development permit is for the site located at the south end of the Sunbrook development where Alienta Drive and Plantations Drive will connect. The design of the intersection was still under St. George City Council Minutes May 18, 2006 Page Six consideration at the time the Hillside Review Board met on-site. The Planning Commission recommended approval with the same recommendations made by the Hillside Review Board, allowing two additional lots, no pushing of dirt over the hillside, and subject to the Plantations Drive roadway alignment being resolved and verification of the hillside overlay zone boundary. City Planner Mark Bradley explained that the Dolce Vista Phase 2 preliminary plat is a subdivision phase with 78 single-family detached patio home sites. He said it is located at the northwest corner of the intersection of Alienta Drive and Plantations Drive. Mr. Bradley said that the Planning Commission recommended approval subject to: (1) the hillside development permit, (2) Plantations Drive roadway alignment to be located outside of the 40% slopes, except if the roadway alignment is clearly outside the hillside overlay zone, and (3) details of the proposed rock wall along Lots 98 ? 103 be submitted to the City for review and compliance with the rockery wall standards. Mr. Mark Fonger stated that he was a representative for Sunhill Homes. He gave the Council a copy of the slope map that had the hillside overlay zone line on it. He said that the line is north/south and pointed out the property that was inside the zone and what property was outside of the zone. Mr. Fonger also gave the Council a second copy that showed the rock wall and he said that they have proposed that Plantations Drive have a trail on the Sunbrook side. He said that the trail has a buffer and would be raised up above the elevation of the road in order to make it safer and a more desirable location for pedestrian access. Council Member Bunker asked if the trail would connect with the City trails. Mr. Fonger explained that the trail would connect across to the Plantations trails and he said that he believes there are plans to have those connect to the City trails. Council Member Bunker asked what type of buffer there would be. Mr. Fonger said that it would be a landscape buffer that would be approximately 10 feet wide and that the trail would be set up approximately 4 feet above the road level. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. Council Member Whatcott asked what the size of the lots would be. The representative from Sunhill said that there would be two products. One would be an R-1-8 type subdivision. The second product would be a narrow, deep unit. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to approve the Hillside Development Permit and the Preliminary Plat for Dolce Vista Phase 2 at Sunbrook. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: ...


City Council Minutes 01/12/2006:
...year plan, $990,000 is needed the first year, $1,000,000 the second, etc. Sunbrook has an annual debt service of $750,000 and Southgate has $147,000. The problem is how to make up the difference between the amount the City has and the amount needed to stay competitive. If improvements aren?t made, there will be a significant problem. Golf fees have not been raised for three years. He then introduced Linda Butterfus, the City?s new Golf Service Coordinator. He then reviewed rate structures. 28% of play at Southgate is pass play. He suggested a 5% increase in the rack rate and a 25% discount to those who want to buy a discount card for at least $250. There would no longer be a resident vs. non-resident rate. An alternative is to keep the resident vs. non-resident rates and bump up the non-resident rate, although people will find a way to qualify as a resident. Mr. Esplin commented that $22 was a fair rate for resident golf. Green Springs is $33, Sky Mountain is $17. If rates are not increased, costs will have to be cut. Council Member Whatcott suggested that Sunbrook be increased to $60-$80 for a non-resident, with locals playing at the current rate with no increase. Council Member Orton commented that golf is the City?s number one economic impact, and whatever it does, the City must take care of its citizens and raise income at the same time. Council Member Whatcott commented that the proposed increase for non-residents was not enough. Jerome Jones, Golf Course Maintenance Manager, advised that in 2001 it cost $4,000 to fertilize one time - it now costs $10,000, and someone has to pay for that. City Manager Gary Esplin suggested that a loan from the Economic Development Fund be made to the Golf Course Fund for five years. Council Member Orton suggested that Sunbrook fees be raised to $80.00 with a cart for a non-resident, and $45 with a cart for a resident. The other three courses? fees should be set at the City?s cost, plus a little extra for operation and maintenance. It was the consensus of the Mayor and City Council to suspend sales of punch cards, hire additional staff to meet maintenance needs, have the pros become City employees with the concessions handled differently. If the pros want the concessions, they will have the first opportunity, but they will need to show that the employees staffing the concessions are not being paid by the City. An agreement is needed to account for costs and hours. It was the consensus of the City Council to charge $100.00 for a four month pass good for use June through September. There will no longer be any punch cards, but the Cache Card would be offered instead with a discount off the regular rate. It was the consensus of the City Council to charge $80.00 with cart at Sunbrook for a non-resident, and $55.00 with cart for a resident. City ...

Planning Commission Minutes 07/22/2008:
...T A. Consider approval of The Lakes ROS (Record of Survey) located west of Sunbrook Golf Course and Development, containing 10 Lots/Pods with a total of 661.26 acres. The representative is Brandon Anderson from Rosenberg & Associates. The zoning is R-1-10. There is a zone change pending (PD) which will be heard at City Council August 7th. Case No. 2008-ROS-001City Project Manager Todd Jacobson said this is known as the Record of Survey not as a final plat. There is a zone change pending for this Record of Survey. It is currently R-1-10 and they would like to request a PD zone. Assistant City Attorney Joseph Farnsworth said that under State law when you subdivide a property it needs to go through the plat process. However property can be exempt from plat process and be heard at a Record of Survey as a whole parcel. The development agreement is in the final stages of being reviewed by the City’s Legal Dept. Because it is such a large area of land the developers did not want to keep coming back with amendments to the plat. This may not be the only Record of Survey that will be heard in the future by Planning CommissionActing Chairman Bracken questioned if the roads need to go through each one of those parcels to be heard as a Record of Survey. He asked if the roads need to be put in before they can sell off a pod? Jake Sylvester with Rosenberg & Associates said the roads have been dedicated. When one of these pods sells then they would be obligated to put the roads into that pod.Commissioner Nobis said it was mentioned that they could go through Preliminary Plat or Final Plat or they could go through a Record of Survey. Assistant City Attorney Joseph Farnsworth said when you go through this ROS process it does not mean that you cannot go through the Preliminary Plat process. After the ROS has been approved, then the developers will go through the formal plat process when they want to develop the land.Commissioner Taylor said the way he understands this is the purpose of the ROS is to determine the boundaries of these pods so they can be sold individually.Assistant City Attorney Joseph Farnsworth replied that is correct.MOTION: Commissioner Nobis made a motion to recommend to City Council approval subject to the development agreement be executed and signed before it goes to City Council. Commission Campbell seconded the motion. All voted aye.B. Consider a final plat request for Riverside Towers Commercial Condominiums with six (6) units located at the northwest corner of 270 East Street and 1400 South Street. The owner is Riverside Towers LLC and Mr. Kay Campbell is the representative. The zone is C-3 (General Commercial). Case No. 2008-FP-030C. Consider approval of a final plat for Milne Estates Subdivision with four (4) residential lots located off 3430 East Street and 2090 South Circle. The applicant is Mr. Travis Milne and Mr. Gary Milne. The zoning is A-1 (Agricultural). The site is located on 4.96 acres more or less. Case No. 2008-FP-032City Project Manager Todd Jacobson said the two final plats will be heard under one motion. Todd read the final plats into the record. MOTION: Commissioner Nobis made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of the final plats read into record and authorize Chairman to sign. Commissioner Hullinger seconded the motion. All voted aye.GUEST HOUSE Consider a request for a guest house to exceed the maximum allowable floor area of four hundred square feet (400 sq. ft.). The request is for a total footprint of approximately 820 square feet which would include 55 sq ft for two solar equipment rooms (outside access only), 45 sq ft for an airlock entry, and 35 sq ft for an outside covered porch. The total for non-living space is 135 sq ft. The guesthouse living space would include a bedroom, bathroom, living room, wet bar / kitchenette (small sink, microwave, and under counter refrigerator). The actual living space area is 685 sq ft. The property is located at 3251 Three Bars Road, Bloomington. Mr. and Mrs. Kerby Karkula are the applicants. The zone is RE-37.5 (Residential Estate 37,500 sq. ft. minimum). Case No. 2008-GH-003Planner Craig Harvey presented this item. This is a request for a guest house to exceed the maximum allowable floor area of four hundred sq. ft. The request is for a total foot print of approximately 820 sq. ft. The actual living space area is 685 sq. ft. Based on the ordinance under Regulations for “Guest Homes on a Single Family Residential” it states “Requests exceeding 400 sq. ft. shall be submitted to the Planning Commission for review and consideration at a regularly scheduled meeting.” The applicant has supplied a narrative for Planning Commission’s review. Craig said staff supports the request for the guesthouse and recommends approval.Assistant City Attorney Joseph Farnsworth said part of the restriction of the square footage of 400 sq. ft. is to prevent the unit from becoming a rental. Planning Commission needs to determine why this particularly guest house can be an exception to the 400 ft. rule. MOTION: Commissioner Taylor made a motion to approve this request for a guesthouse based on the fact that the individuals have shown that the guesthouse will not be used as a rental, will make a deed restriction and that they are in fact adding to the building solar and other facilities that would be in harmony with the purposes of the community. Commissioner Burks seconded the motion. All voted aye.BDCSP (BUILDING DESIGN CONCEPTUAL SITE PLAN) Consider a building design and conceptual site plan (BDCSP) to construct an automotive detail center. The project name is “Stephen Wade Detail Center”. The owner is Mr. Stephen Wade. The representative is Mr. Reid Pope. Located at 150 West Hilton Drive. The zoning is PD-COM (Planned Development - Commercial). Case No. 2008-BDCSP-004Planner Ray Snyder said this request is to give permission to construct a two-story detail shop with an office adjacent to a new two level storage structure. The building will be located behind the existing Nissan Dealership. This will be a third building on site consisting of a detail shop (5,074 sq. ft.) and office (2,497 sq. ft.). Ray said the height will not exceed 35 ft. They will need to turn into City staff a Site Plan Review. A photometric plan is required. Pole lighting shall be of a “dark sky” style with no lens protruding below the side perimeter of the fixture. Ray presented staff’s comments;1. The building colors and materials shall be per July 22, 2008 submittal to Planning Commission. 2. The building height is approved not to exceed thirty five feet. 3. Parking shall be demonstrated to meet the zoning ordinance requirements during the site plan review process. Parking spaces shall be 9’ x 18’ in size with 25’ wide drive aisles minimum.4. A SPR (Site Plan Review) application along with 4 sets of plans shall be submitted to the Development Services Dept. for standard plan check review.a. Screen all HVAC equipment from view.b. Provide a photometric plan.i. Pole lighting shall be of a “dark sky” style with no lens protruding below the side perimeter of the fixture.ii. The light levels are to be verified by a light meter prior to occupancy.5. Signage shall be under separate permit. Traffic Conditions1. Meet the requirements of the City Traffic Engineer. 2. Meet the requirements of the State of Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT).3. All signing and striping shall conform to the City of St. George and MUTCD standards.Commissioner Burks said when they first came in; they put up the dealership, were allowances given to them on the landscaping. Are you going to re-imposed them to do more landscaping? Ray replied because this request will be reviewed internally they have not asked them for any additional landscaping on site. Ray went over the parking requirements for the detail shop and the office area. They have an excess of parking. Commissioner Campbell said he wants to make sure that there is enough parking and not to see the cars on the street. Bill Western said they can designate the parking spaces they need by using part of the 318 additional new parking spaces on site at the northeast corner in the new parking structure. MOTION: Commissioner Campbell made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a building design and conceptual site plan (BDCSP) to construct an automotive detail center subject to the applicant providing an agreement that states they will maintain 23 stalls for this particular building on the whole project and staff comments as well. Commissioner Burks seconded the motion. All voted aye. ZONE CHANGE REQUESTS – PUBLIC HEARINGS (5:00 P.M.)A. Consider a zone change from RE-20 (Residential Estate 20,000 square foot minimum lot size) to PD-RES (Planned Development Residential) on 6.45 acres. Located on 3000 South (Horseman Park Road) and Little Valley Road. The site is east of 2350 East Street (& the Little Valley Elementary School). This site is across the street from the new Intermediate School). The applicant is Mr. Bart Frost. The representative is Mr. John Fleming of Bonneville Builders, and the engineer is Mr. Jim Raines of Bush & Gudgell. The project is “Little Valley Commons.” Case No. 2008-ZC-018Planner Ray Snyder stated this is a request for a zone change to rezone RE-20 to PD-RES (Planned Development Residential). The 14.68 acres is located on 3000 South and Little Valley Road. Ray pointed out that the General Plan shows this area as M/HD (Medium-High Density, 7-10 du/acre) and MD (Medium Density 4-7 du/acre) according to the Little Valley General Plan adopted on March 2007. The applicant is proposing 89 units with 6.45 acres of open space. Ray went over the setbacks for this proposal.Ray presented the Density Bonus and said they are not asking for a TND:The subject property is located within the Density Bonus Overlay Zone which covers most of the south one-third of the City and includes all of the Little Valley area. Under the program, additional density is achieved through the provision of parks, trails and open space. A minimum of 15% of the development area must be set aside for parks, trails or other open space in order to achieve a 25% density increase over the base of 2 du/acre. The applicant states that 22% has been provided for this purpose. Also the developer must improve the park and trail areas to achieve an additional 25% bonus increase and meet a third factor such as 1) additional or enhanced park amenities, or 2) additional or enhanced landscaping with the street right-of-way, or 3) attainable housing, or 4) provide land for civic uses such as fire station, etc. or 5) provide additional land area above the 15% minimum required. Compliance with one or more of these “Third Factors” results in an additional 15% (or 65% above the base) density increase. To achieve the density proposed by the applicant three things are required under the Density Bonus Overlay Zone standards – 1) compliance with the General Plan land use designations, and the applicant’s request is consistent with the General Plan, 2) compliance with the 3 density bonus factors cited above, and 3) superior design for the project and housing units. The “green courts”, private park and community garden do provide a more innovative project design than typically seen. Also the attainable housing element near the two schools should help teachers and young families find affordable housing. The Density Bonus program is a new program and the City staff, Planning Commission and City Council will need to carefully consider how Factor 3 is met and the overall design aspects of the project.Ray read into the record staff comments;Housing Types: The overall style proposed is called a “Craftsman Style” home. This proposed project has three (3) distinct housing products; 1) 43 green court units along 3000 South Street (Horseman Park Road) all accessed by 20’ wide private alleys and no driveways on 3000 South (across from the intermediate school); 2) 23 “alley” homes; and 3) 23 “traditional” homes. All 89 units are detached single-family dwellings. The “green court” or “courtyard” units are patterned after similar homes in the “Day Break” project in South Jordan, Utah according to the applicant.Typical Lot Layout: Homes on 3000 East will face a central green common area. There are four (4) common areas proposed with 9 homes surrounding the common area. Private Park: A private park of 0.75 acre in size is proposed along the east side of the project. This park will be improved by the developer and maintained by the HOA. Due to the large community park in the immediate vicinity the applicant has relayed that a “tot lot” was felt to be most appropriate for this location.Private Alley: Twenty foot (20’) wide private alley ways are proposed to serve most of the homes in the project. Private Street: One row of homes is proposed to have front driveways off a 34’ wide private street. Approval of the City Engineer will be required for a private street.Privacy Walls: The design of this project eliminates privacy walls along Horseman Park Drive (3000 South).City Property: The applicant is negotiating with the City to purchase approximately 2 acres next to the Little Valley Elementary School and the property is currently shown as part of the overall project. The City Council has expressed a willingness to sell the property to the applicant.Guest Parking: According to the site plan there will be forty-one (41) guest parking spaces proposed throughout the project to accommodate guests.Community Garden: A “Community Garden” is proposed as part of the amenity package for residents within the project.Site Distance: Due to required site distance along Little Valley Road Lots No. 4 and 5 should be combined into one (see exhibit).HOA: An HOA (Home Owners Association) will be required. The HOA will also be responsible for restricting the parking of vehicles in the proposed alleys.CC&R’s: It is requested that a provision be added to the CC&R’s that a restriction on the number of cars per unit be added.Commissioner Nobis asked how attainable housing was determined. Is that accomplished through the development agreement? Assistant City Attorney Joseph Farnsworth replied unless the City wants to have a certain percentage it will need to be in the development agreement. There was discussion on the density calculations. Jim Raines with Bush & Gudgell said in the City’s ordinance there is a paragraph (Section 10-13E-6 Density Bonus Factors) that talks about multi-family housing and the three criteria’s that need to be met. It is not based on math calculations it is based on meeting the three criteria’s. Ray said this will have to be reviewed with the Development Director. Jim said when they setup the bonus density the criteria was set up at 2 du/ac. What it didn’t do is it did not carry over to the Medium Density or the High Density. Council Member Shakespeare asked how much of the property is zoned MD or HD in the Little Valley area and how much of it around the School. Ray said they don’t have a map that shows the areas to-date that has been already approved for a zone change. Commissioner Taylor said if they approve a zone change for a PD does that mean that the board has to accept the plan that is in front of them tonight. He commented that he is not comfortable with that. Would they not see this again as a preliminary plat? Assistant City Attorney Joseph Farnsworth said it would come through again as a preliminary plat. He said the development agreement should be approved during the phase of the zone change. He believes that this should be tabled until that happens. Assistant City Attorney Joseph Farnsworth said in the City ordinance Section 10-13E-9 and 10-13E-5 states that a development agreement shall be considered concurrent with the zone change applicant and a draft shall be submitted by the applicant at least six (6) weeks prior to Planning Commission. Jim Raines said it was their understanding that the development agreement came in with the preliminary plat. Acting Chairman Bracken said he will open the public hearing before they table this item because of need for the development agreement to proceed.Jim McArthur stated he has land next to this project. He is concerned about the animals he has on his property and he is concerned about the elevation and the canal issues. He is not in favor of this zone change. Brad Giffins has land next to this. He has two large corrals that house animals. He believes the zone should not be changed. They are out there for the open space. Paul Gough said he purchased his property so he can carry out the agricultural life style. He believes they will have a hard time putting in higher density into horse property. He feels they are stealing the value of his property from him. Jim Raines said this came before City staff during mid 2006. The project at that time was going to be 22 single-family lots in a zone that would be RE-20. During the City Council it was decided to table this request. At that time City staff was discussing the Master Plan for the Little Valley area that would be coming forth. When the master plan for Little Valley was approved it had this area marked as Medium Density Residential. Jim stated he has complied with what was required to do base on the ordinance when it was passed one year ago. This is going to be a high quality MD development. The applicant has waited a year to see how this was going to be set as density. Paul Iverson said the Little Valley residents feel like they have no voice with the government. A PD zone so will match the existing neighborhood and this does not match what is there. There should be wider setbacks from residential to agricultural sites. He said the people in Little Valley are opposed to high density housing. Ray Snyder read into the record the letter from Mary Niles which states she is strongly opposed. She is concerned about traffic. She also has concerns about children climbing the fences and trying to get to the animals. David Harris asked the applicant what is keeping them from doing larger lots or something to that variation. He lives in this neighborhood. Closed the public hearing at 6:00 p.m.John Fleming the Senior Project Manager said they are pursuing this development to go by the General Plan. They have noted there is a need for housing that has not been completely met. In looking at this they started working with staff and they were interested into putting this type of development into this area. He is sympathetic with the Agricultural use being disturbed but this happens when a City is growing. The decision was made on how St. George is going to grow. He does not believe they will get those types of conflicts that were addressed here tonight. He said what they are trying to do is meet the market segment. He spoke on his previous designs of homes using energy efficient. Slides were shown of DayBreak. MOTION: Commissioner Taylor said there are issues that need to be resolved. He would move to table this project to a future time. DISCUSSION ON THE MOTIONAssistant City Attorney Joseph Farnsworth said the requirement of the draft development agreement must be submitted six weeks prior to this zone change. Commissioner Read questioned if they can call the applicant incomplete due to the development agreement not being attached to the zone change. Commissioner Read would also like to request that Planning Commission have the deed restriction and the minutes on the Fredonia development attached to the staff’s report for their review. Commissioner Read seconded the motion. DISCUSSION ON THE MOTIONCommissioner Burks said he believes at one time it was discussed during Planning Commission on having a separation on new development and rural. He believes that it was approved with a 100 ft. separation from the two. Commissioner Nobis mentioned that separation should be on the back of larger lots where Jim McArthur property line is located. He would like to have the applicant address the canal also. Assistant City Attorney Joseph Farnsworth said the applicant should not be back until the application is complete, including the development agreement. All voted aye.B.

...MINARY PLATSA. Consider a preliminary plat request for The Pointe Phase 3 (Sunbrook) with 15 single-family lots located north of Lost Creek Drive. Sunhill Homes, representative. Case No. 2007-PP-001PLANNING COMMISSIONFebruary 13, 2007Page TwoPlanner John Willis said this subdivision continues the Sunbrook Planned Development and Master Planned Community. Lost Creek Drive extends one-thousand feet (1000') to a cul-de-sac; however there are only 15 lots being accessed. The northerly boundary is the St. George boundary with Santa Clara and the road is being dedicated beyond the cul-de-sac for a possible future extension. Parts of this subdivision are in the Erosion Hazard Boundary. The developers have submitted the necessary reports and are providing erosion protection. Dedicated access (20' wide) to the Santa Clara river area is being provided in three (3) places. This subdivision is avoiding the Hillside areas. There is prevalence of clay soils in the area.Commissioner Burks questioned that some of the lots were in the 100-year flood plain which goes right up to their property line, is that correct? John replied that is correct. Chairman Almquist questioned the 1000' cul-de-sac. He asked isn’t the standard for the length of a road 600'? Senior Project Engineer Cathy Hasfurther said it is normally only 600' but with only a few lots staff felt it would work. MOTION: Commissioner Campbell made a motion to recommend to City Council approval of a preliminary plat request for The Pointe Phase 3 (Sunbrook) with 15 single-family lots located north of Lost Creek Drive.

...w Drive. Aron said there is a great deal of impact on Valley View Drive. Sunbrook Drive will have the greatest congestion. They will try to get dual left turns on Sunbrook Drive some time this year. One of the concerns they have is the amount of turns on Canyon View Drive that will be the next signal light. The signals will be 1/4 mile apart. There will be about 15,000 to 20,000 cars on Plantations Drive. There will be a 66 ft. master plan road that will connect to Dixie Drive by Lilywhites. Tuscan Hills subdivision will add about 2,200 cars a day to the roads. As the plans for subdivisions come in staff is asking for traffic impact studies to help the City see what will be forthcoming. Commissioner Burks asked about Stonebridge Drive and the extension over to Valley View will there be a traffic light there. Aron said no but there could be a light at Dixie Drive and Stonebridge Drive. Commissioner Burks named off upcoming subdivisions, his question is, will Dixie Drive be able to adequately handle the traffic that these new subdivisions will create. Should Planning Commission stop approving new developments that come into Dixie Drive? Aron replied the five lane road can handle a great deal of traffic. These projects that you speak of they have supplied a traffic impact study. As far as the volumes go the City plans on 4-6% growth every year. Commissioner Taylor what impact does Dixie Drive have on Bluff Street. Aron said when you start to get too much pressure on Bluff they do start to take the back way on Dixie Drive. Yes, it does impact Bluff Street. They are studying Bluff and trying to see what they will do with Bluff Street and where do they see the street going in the future. Aron said he would be happy to return to share with Planning Commission what changes they plan on the roads for St. George. They have some short term things which need to be completed and long range items. Council Member Bunker asked from Sunbrook to Plantations they are looking at 5 signal lights. Do the plans ...

Most city-owned facilities are charged for these services, but some services are provided at no cost to the City.   No action is required.   6.            Public hearing to consider the City's application for funding from the Utah Permanent Community Impact Fund Board (CIB) for the St. George Campus Expansion Project.   BACKGROUND and RECOMMENDATION:  This is a public hearing to consider the City's application for funding from the Utah Permanent Community Impact Fund Board (CIB) for the St. George Campus Expansion Project.  This public hearing is required for the City's application to the CIB to fund Phase 2 (City Hall Expansion) $3.7 million and phase 3 (Police Building Expansion) $7.1 million ($11 million total) with a low interest 2.5% loan.  If the City's proposal is accepted by the CIB, the terms of the loan will come back to the City Council for approval prior to receiving funding later this summer or early fall.  Staff recommends approval of the CIB bond to be issued to the Municipal Building Authority (MBA) as the official applicant.  This will be as a Lease Revenue Bond and that the City will make an annual lease payment to the MBA until the bond is paid off.   7.            Public Hearing and consideration of an ordinance vacating a public utilities and drainage easement located at approximately 1950 West Canyon View Drive.   BACKGROUND and RECOMMENDATION:  This request is to consider vacating public utilities and drainage easements that are located at approximately 1950 West Canyon View Drive as a new development for The Vue at Green Valley is being proposed and these easements are being relocated with the development of the project; zoning is PD-R.  Staff and the Joint Utility Committee recommended approval.   8.            Public Hearing and consideration of an ordinance amending the final subdivision plat for Lot 5 & 6, Canyon View Ridge Subdivision at Sunbrook Phase 1 by merging said lots together into one lot and vacating th...

...d Residential) to PD-R (Planned Development Residential) on 6.04 acres for Sunbrook Hollow Townhomes. The property is located at 415 South Dixie Drive (behind the existing building on the property).      Community Development Director John Willis explained this application was tabled at the August 16th City Council meeting.  The applicant has revised the request and reduced the number of units, as well as the size of the project.  He presented a PowerPoint presentation covering the following topics: general plan map; aerial map; 1st 2018 request; modified request; and proposed removal of a portion of the island on Dixie Drive.  The Planning Commission recommended approval (4:1) to the City Council with a reduction of density to five (5) du/ac (approx. 30 units).  The property being removed from the project will possibly be merged with the adjacent property; it would remain PD-C.     Applicant Troy Wall explained why they proposed to eliminate the 0.71 acres from the proposal.  He spoke with several engineers who told him that 54 units produce very little traffic.   Further, they told him that the proposed project would not directly influence traffic going into Parkside Circle.  Whether or not their development happens, there is an issue with traffic on Dixie Drive.  They did research on how a traffic study is done.  He has not met with neighbors to discuss density concerns.  The biggest complaint he is aware of is the issues with Parkside Circle.     St. George City Council Minutes September 6, 2018 Page Seven   Mayor Pike noted the public hearing was closed at the previous meeting.  He indicated that he would be happy to hear new issues, after which he opened the floor for public comment.  Resident Fred Hokama mentioned the school bus accident that took place recently down the road.    Resident Willis Digman stated that he is concerned with people speeding on Dixie Drive.  He asked if a traffic signal in the area has been considered to control the speed.   Public Works Director Cameron Cutler explained the process for a traffic signal.  There is a signal proposed at Sunbrook Drive pending traffic studies.  He noted that stop signs and signals are not used just to govern speeds.    Mayor Pike closed the public hearing.   Mr. Wall indicated that if the item is not approved, they will struggle to make this project work with a reduced number of units.       Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston noted this request should be subject to a delay agreement.   MOTION:      A motion was made by Councilmember Bowcutt to approve the ordinance changing the zone from PD-C/R to PD-R on 6.04 acres for Sunbrook Hollow Townhomes subject to the delay agreement.

City Council Minutes 10/20/2016:
...ENT/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a zone change amendment for the Sunbrook Ranch Planned Development located at 415 South Dixie Drive to expand the use of RV parking.  Marv Blosch, applicant.   Planner Ray Snyder presented the request for a zone change amendment for the Sunbrook Ranch Planned Development located at 415 South Dixie Drive to expand the use of RV parking.  He presented a PowerPoint presentation covering the following topics: summary of request, narrative from applicant; existing parking agreement - 2014; original master plan; floor plan; aerial map; property limits; record of survey; map of the area; photos of the area; general plan map; zoning map; adjusted parking calculations; site plan; screen trellis elevation and retaining wall section; planting plan; conceptual rendering; letter from resident; and photos of the area.  The Planning Commission St. George City Council Meeting Minutes October 20, 2016 Page Six   recommended approval; he reviewed the Planning Commission’s motion.  He outlined which spaces would and would not be covered as well as why there was a private drive.   He does not feel removing the private drive would create future issues.   Applicant Marv Blosch outlined the proposed planting plan and noted they will be planting 42 new trees and installing 200’ of new wall near the entry, all of which will be on the west side.  Their offices will be moved to the south side; therefore, there will be a new entrance and the old road will go away.       Mr. Snyder mentioned the current chain link fencing was not originally approved as part of the Planned Development.   City Attorney Shawn Guzman noted that this has been an issue previously with code enforcement officers.   Mr. Blosch stated that the chain link fence was installed on a temporary basis to provide security.  It will be removed.  The proposed planting plan outlines a proposed block wall.    Mr. Willis noted that the proposed block wall does meet the requirements of the ordinance.    Mayor Pike opened the public hearing.    Bob Secudo, adjacent property owner, stated that the plan looks good; however, he is concerned with the proposed access and increased dust and noise.  He asked if the private road will be maintained.    Mayor Pike asked if there would be any trees planted on the south side of the road.   Mr. Blosch explained the proposal does not include the right hand piece of property.  Most of the trees along that side will stay except for those that are protruding into the island.    After Mr. Secudo inquired about the width of the road, City Manager Gary Esplin explained when the road is developed; it will have to meet the requirements in the ordinance.    Resident Blaine Nichols mentioned that he is happy to see that many more trees installed, but that would be many gallons of water being used.   Mayor Pike noted that the water usage depends on the type of trees planted.    Mayor Pike closed the public hearing.   MOTION:      A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to approve the zone change amendment to Sunbrook Ranch Planned Development  to include the extended RV storage...

...uthgate, Red Hills and St. George Golf Club, and 18 holes are kept open at Sunbrook. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that as more and more pass players play in October and November, the fees have remained the same, and no one else can get on the courses. Councilmember Whatcott advised St. George City’s prices should not be compared with the competition, as the City must do what is best for its residents, the golf courses, and the City’s budget. Other courses will not change their fees based on what St. George does, and St. George should not change their fees based on what others are doing. City Manager Gary Esplin advised staff is recommending that sales tax be recouped, but will proceed in any way directed by the City Council. Staff is also recommending that rates be raised at Sunbrook in order to raise money for capital improvements there. The recommended fee is still fair and competitive. Mr. Terry advised that 250 resident punch cards are sold at Sunbrook each year. It is also recommended that residents receive discount...

VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. LOT SPLIT: Assistant Planner Ray Snyder advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held September 13, 2005, recommended approval of a lot split located at Sunset Blvd. at approximately 2100 West, west of Daybreak Drive subject to the recommendations of the City?s Traffic Engineer as follows: (1) the driveway on Sunset Blvd. be lined up directly across Sunset Blvd. from the Mountain America Credit Union driveway, (2) that a cross-access easement be prepared for the two lots so access can be achieved between the lots, (3) that the corner lot?s direct access be obtained on Daybreak Drive and no access will be approved on Sunset Blvd. for this corner lot, and (4) if the land use changes from an office-type use to land use with greater traffic intensity, that the driveway on Sunset Blvd. be re-evaluated by UDOT and the City to see if it is still an appropriate location for the more intense land use. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the lot split subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. LOT SPLIT: Associate Planner Mark Bradley recommended that a request for a lot split at 3430 East and 1880 South be tabled as there were still issues to be worked out with regard to the Road Master Plan. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to table the matter. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. SITE PLAN AND BUILDING ELEVATION: Assistant Planner Ray Snyder advised that the Planning Commission recommended approval of the site plan and building elevation for a proposed hotel located within a PD zone at 2680 South between 60 East and 120 East near the northeast quadrant of the Bloomington Interchange, subject to four conditions: (1) the traffic engineer?s review and approval, (2) signage to be approved under a separate permit, (3) submittal of either a lot merge application to remove the interior lot lines, or an amended plat application, and (4) amending the site plan to meet parking requirements for hotels. City Traffic Engineer Aron Baker further recommends the following: (1) the development shall contribute a fair share of its portion of a future second access road to be built, to be determined by the City Engineer, (2) line up the project driveways so they line up with driveways across the street, both existing and future, (3) the City and UDOT are preparing to commission a study to evaluate the current Bloomington roundabout interchange, and once this study is completed, there will be mitigation measures that will be implemented to improve traffic circulation at this congested interchange. It is possible that this development will be involved in implementation of these measures to ensure left turns in the future from 60 East, and (4) all signing and striping shall conform to City of St. George and MUTCD standards. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the traffic generated by this project will be less than that generated by a business park, and the use is less than that allowed by existing zoning. A letter of bond for the interchange improvements is needed, and that study is taking place now. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch commented that the interchange study is a six month study. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the site plan and building elevation subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission and City Traffic Engineer. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried.

St. George City Council Minutes September 22, 2005 Page Four CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit to establish a retail sales store with outdoor display of landscape rock in a C-3 zone at 447 N. Bluff St. Robert Rusby, applicant. This item was tabled. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit to convert property at the NE corner of 700 South and 1100 East to a car sales lot and RV rentals, and provide automotive services and accessories related to car sales. W. D. Auto LLC, applicant. This item was tabled.

Paul Ellsworth for Highpoint LLC, applicant. This item was tabled. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit for wireless communication facilities: (1) a 100' tower at 3292 Desert Drive within the Millcreek Industrial Park, (2) rooftop antennas on an existing building at 1871 W. Canyon View Drive, and (3) co-locate at an existing tower site with a new tower and equipment shelter located southwest of the Snow Canyon Parkway and Bluff Street intersection. Cingular Wireless, applicant. Assistant Planner Ray Snyder advised that this item was previously tabled from the August 18 City Council meeting because the applicant was not present to answer questions. Mayor McArthur explained that Council?s concern was if the antenna needed to be that high, or if its purpose could be accomplished at a decreased height. A gentleman representing General Dynamics explained the history of the site. Five new sites are planned with four rooftop sites. One pole site is needed. He stated that the proposed site will act as an anchor site in the industrial area. Nearby power transmission lines are located on 80' wood poles, and new steel transmission lines will be mounted on poles as high or taller than the existing wooden poles. The proposed pole is a slim-line pole, 17' in diameter at the top. The height is needed to provide overlap coverage with other rooftop sites, and if it is built any lower, more of the coverage will go into the ground. If it were built at a decreased height, more sites would be needed. The pole will be designed so that other carriers can co-locate on it. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to approve the conditional use permit with the stipulation that it be painted a color to blend in with the landscaping, and not painted white or reflective. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott. Mayor McArthur clarified that the color of the pole would have to be approved by staff.

PUBLIC HEARING/PRELIMINARY PLAT: Public hearing to consider approval of the preliminary plat for Foremaster Ridge Phase 5. Doug Rogers, applicant.

Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the preliminary plat. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner. St. George City Council Minutes September 22, 2005 Page Five 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 Escalera Phase 3. Milo McCowan, applicant. This item was tabled. PUBLIC HEARING/BOUNDARY LINE ADJUSTMENT/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider approval of a boundary line adjustment with Santa Clara City to remove 12.75 acres of property located west of Chaco Bench Phase 2 in the northwest area of the Entrada development from St. George City and include this area within Santa Clara City. Shan Gubler, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the initial request was for 12.75 acres, but has been scaled down to 10 acres. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the applicant has a large development proposed for the Santa Clara and Ivins area. One letter of opposition has been received. The applicant proposed a wellness center and spa as part of the project. Shan Gubler, applicant, explained he has a wellness center and spa planned for the area, which straddles two boundaries. He would like to bring the property into Santa Clara so the facility will be under the jurisdiction of one city. He stated that even if the boundary line adjustment were not approved, the present zoning entitles him to locate a wellness center and spa on the property. Additionally, the project falls within the Entrada CC&Rs and fits in the Entrada master plan. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that there was no commercial zoning in that area. Mr. Nicholson explained that the proposed wellness center and spa would require an amended PD request, as the master plan for the area shows residential or open space only. Mr. Gubler clarified that the wellness center and spa had been approved by Entrada. Council Member Gardner inquired about open space. Mr. Gubler replied that the proposed setbacks are greater than the residences, and accommodations will be put throughout the lava fields. The proposed ten acre development is consistent with Entrada?s master plan. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Alan Dredge commented he was a multiple property owner in Chaco Bench across from the proposed boundary change, and he was opposed to the request due to increased traffic, lights, and height of the proposed buildings. He stated the boundary change was premature because not enough information is known about the project in the golf community. He stated he was on the board of trustees for the golf course and this project had never been brought before the board. He expressed concern with the commercial use of the property, and suggested that the matter be tabled until more information could be ascertained about the impact it will have on those around it. An unidentified man commented that the project would be directly to the north of the roundabout, and he was not aware of any proposed lot changes to the west. He expressed concern about height restrictions to the north. Kent Marlow, owner of Lot 46 on the corner, stated he was not notified of the meeting and expressed opposition to the proposal. Paul Kline, an owner in Chaco Trail, stated he was not aware that Entrada had approved commercial zoning in the area, and since the proposed project affects all owners in the gated community, all should have received notices of this hearing. He commented there could only be one reason the applicant wants to build his project in Santa Clara rather than St. George, and that is because of Santa Clara?s flexible building regulations. He suggested that the matter be tabled until all property owners are noticed and can respond. He stated he was opposed to the request. He also expressed concern with emergency services in the area. Jan Mower, owner of Snow Canyon Marketing and an owner in Entrada, explained that she had advised all purchasers of property in the area that the lava fields would remain open space, per the developer. She urged denial of the request. Mary Ellen Kline, a resident of Entrada, stated that none of the developers proposing to change the area live in Entrada and to them it is just a business. She urged denial of the request. Mike Curtis, a resident of Chaco Bench, stated he felt the property in question should remain in St. George. Shan Gubler, applicant, stated he would be happy to meet with Entrada residents again, and whether the building is built in Santa Clara or St. George, it will be built to the same high standards. Further, he is not trying to do anything to degrade the Entrada development, and many residents of Entrada do approve of the project. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. St. George City Council Minutes September 22, 2005 Page Six Council Member Allen commented she felt it would be useful for Mr. Gubler to meet with Entrada homeowners and the golf board to get a consensus. Council Member Orton commented he felt the proposal would not hurt Entrada and he could not imagine having to coordinate construction of a project within three different jurisdictions. Council Member Whatcott suggested that a wall and gate be put in at the roundabout to make Entrada a true gated community. He stated he did not see a buffer created between the residential and commercial area, and the City needed to make sure its citizens were protected and a buffer created. He suggested the matter be tabled. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to table the matter to give Mr. Gubler time to meet with area residents. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Gardner. Mr. Gubler stated he would send out letters to all residents and meet with them once again, and notify the City when he was ready to have the matter heard again. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/AMEND PLAT: Public hearing to consider a request to amend the recorded plat for Riverwood Phase 4 to change the private ownership locations for pads 251 and 252, enlarge pads 250 and 252, and adjust other pads to match existing homes, generally located at 1240 West Indian Hills Drive. Aaron Niemann and Kent Prestwich, applicants. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that when the project was developed, an error was made in the layout of the pads and some do not fit the plat. The Planning Commission recommended approval because it solves some problems for the existing homeowners, subject to (1) the home on pad #252 cannot exceed 2,000 sq. ft. in size and (2) the site plan for pad #252 be submitted to the Planning Commission for approval prior to issuance of a building permit for the home. Mr. Nicholson advised there was opposition to the request. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. An unidentified gentleman, owner of Lot 255, advised that he met to discuss Mr. Nieman?s plans with him and has since signed off on his preliminary plan. Mr. Nieman will not build his home in such a manner as to obstruct his view. Aaron Nieman stated that when he purchased the property he did not know there was a problem, and he will keep the home profile as low as possible. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. City Attorney Shawn Guzman explained that the City will be acquiring some of the lots within the plat because of flooding, and this would be a good time to exclude those lots from the PD by amending the plat. However, there is still some question as to where the City is in the process of acquiring the lots. He suggested the matter be tabled until the next meeting to give staff time to meet with owners in Creekside and Riverwood to address this issue. Aaron Nieman commented that he has had a sale pending since May and would like to get the matter accomplished as soon as possible. He advised that he could wait another two weeks to have the plat approved. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to table the matter for two weeks. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. Mayor McArthur called for a five minute break. PUBLIC HEARING/AMEND CITY CODE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a request to amend Title 10, Chapter 7F, Residential Central City Zone, St. George City Code, to make modifications and include a section on architectural standards. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson reviewed the suggested amendments. He advised that the Planning Commission recommended approval. Council Member Whatcott expressed concern with the guest parking provisions, noting that there is already a problem with multiple cars parked in areas where parking is not provided. Mr. Nicholson replied that there are parking standards which require parking for two cars per unit, and private lanes cannot be obstructed to less than 20'. Council Member Bunker suggested that parking could be accommodated by use of alleyways and parking in the back of homes. Mr. Nicholson stated that a rear alley project could be accommodated if one comes along. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Gloria Shakespeare suggested that the committee study landscape guidelines and make a recommendation to the City Council at a future date. St. George City Council Minutes September 22, 2005 Page Seven There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to approve the ordinance as presented. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen.

Brett Burgess, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the property consists of a remnant half acre located between the Settlers RV Park and the new Marriott Hotel development. In order to clean up the plat, the Planning Commission recommended approval. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the zone change by ordinance. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Allen - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a zone change from PD Residential to R-1-10 on 1.88 acres located on 1100 East at about 1000 South. Kevin Ence, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that this property was zoned PD Residential less than a year ago, but the applicant has since changed his mind and prefers to do a conventional subdivision. The Planning Commission recommends approval. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Garry Bedingfield stated he had a home in Southfield Estates and had concerns that the single family subdivision architecture may conflict with the southwestern architecture of the nearby Episcopal church, that multi-story homes should not be allowed as nearby homes would suffer diminished privacy, and that drainage problems should be addressed. City Manager Gary Esplin clarified that the applicant could wait four months for the zoning to revert back to R-1-10 and proceed with his project then, and there would be nothing the City could do to prevent him from building an R-1-10 project. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the zone change by ordinance. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Whatcott. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Bunker - no The motion carried. Associate Planner Mark Bradley explained that a privacy wall is not required because the adjacent zoning is R-1-10, but a privacy wall is shown on the applicant?s plans. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a zone change from R-2 to C-1 on .20 acre located at 243 North 400 West. Jan Kucera for Contempo Tile, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that parcels to the south are zoned C-1, property to the west is C-3, and property to the north is R-2. The applicant will remove small duplexes on the property to make additional access and employee parking. The Planning Commission recommends approval. St. George City Council Minutes September 22, 2005 Page Eight Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Chris Hill, representing the applicant, distributed a hand-out and advised that the proposal includes landscaping and fences, and that concerns of the neighbors will be honored. Marilyn Sudimoto expressed concern with the safety of children if an access is granted on to 400 West Street. Mr. Hill replied he did not feel an access on to 400 West would increase traffic. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. Mr. Nicholson explained the request is consistent with the general plan. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the zone change by ordinance. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Bunker - no The motion carried. PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a zone change from A-20 to R-1-10 on 19.32 acres located at 1000 South and 3000 East. Cary Blake, applicant. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the subject area is an area in transition. The request is consistent with the general plan, and the Planning Commission recommends approval. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. Council Member Whatcott commented that while he was not opposed to the zone change, he wondered if approval of this request meant that the AG-20 property to the west and north would also eventually be zoned R-1-10. He stated he hoped the price range of the smaller lots would be less than for lots with R-1-12 zoning. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that the entire area need to be looked at if the City is to make a dent in attainable housing. There is a not a lot of undeveloped property left, and the City has to do something about affordable housing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the zone change by ordinance. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Gardner - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. ORDINANCE/AMEND CITY CODE: Consider approval of an ordinance amending the St. George City Code to clarify that federal requirements supercede the local vendor preference on federally funded projects. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that any time federal funds are used for a project, the City cannot use its local bidding preference, and the ordinance needs to be amended to reflect this fact. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the ordinance. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Bunker - aye The vote was unanimous and the motion carried. REQUEST TO MAINTAIN WATER LINES: Consider approval of a request by the AOPC for the City to maintain water lines beyond the meter. St. George City Council Minutes September 22, 2005 Page Nine Water Services Director Barry Barnum explained that a request has been received from the AOPC to maintain water lines within PUDs beyond the meter, and a memorandum of understanding has been developed to establish criteria for taking over the water systems where an individual meter would normally be located. The MOU was reviewed by the Water and Energy Board and comes with a recommendation for approval. The criteria for acceptance is if the PUD is qualified under the guidelines to be billed as though they have individual 3/4" meters and will apply only to water lines that are located within the streets. There will be a little over 30 projects which qualify. Council Member Orton inquired how other cities handle similar situations. Mr. Barnum replied that he had not checked with other cities. Jerry Campbell commented that the only PUDs which can qualify are those who qualify for 3/4" meters. The agreement is for a three year trial period on a 50/50 cost share basis for problems with the water lines under the street. Qualified projects have paid their impact fees. If at the end of the trial period the cost sharing does not exceed more than 10% of the cost to maintain standard neighborhoods, then the City would take over the lines 100%, as it does the sewer. Council Member Orton commented that in order to be fair, if the City takes over maintenance of water lines in one PUD, it should do so in all PUDs. Mr. Campbell commented that if the PUD is qualified and paid its impact fee, it may participate in the three year trial period. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the PUDs had to bring their sewer lines up to standard in order to have then maintained by the City. The issue with the water lines is the impact fee credit. Those paying the credit are the ones who can participate in the trial period. Mr. Barnum advised that it is the City?s intent to take over all of them as they qualify. Mr. Esplin explained that PUDs built now all have individual meters. Mr. Barnum explained that the City would repair holes in the street caused by the maintenance, even if the street is private. Council Member Allen clarified that the City would maintain and repair water lines located in the street to the curb only. Mayor McArthur commented that water lines outside of the street are the responsibility of the PUD. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to approve the request. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows: Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Bunker - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Orton - no The motion carried. COST SHARING AGREEMENT: Consider approval of a cost sharing agreement with Quality Excavation. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the purpose of the agreement is for oversizing of storm drain lines in the Little Valley area. $85,000 is the City?s share of the total project cost. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Garnder to approve the agreement. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye.

Mr. Esplin explained that the area covered includes the Springs area, the park in the Springs, between River Road and the U-15 freeway bridge, from Bloomington on the south side of the river from Walmart to below the bridge, from the bridge south around the Gardens area, a section in the Sunbrook area, Rivers Edge Subdivision, and around the golf course in Sunbrook. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. ...

AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid for purchase of chip seal oil for City projects. Purchasing Agent Sue Swensen advised that only one bid was received from Crown Asphalt in the amount of $75,757 for 321 tons of chip seal oil. She recommended award of the bid to Crown Asphalt. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the City has used this supplier in the past for this product. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to award the bid to Crown Asphalt in the amount of $75,757. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Orton. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and the City Council voted as follows: Councilmember Whatcott - aye Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Isom - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Whatcott - aye St. George City Council Minutes July 6, 2000 Page Two The motion carried. AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid for construction materials for the 3000 East water line project. Purchasing Agent Sue Swensen presented the following three bids: Scholzen’s $59,334.58; W. R.

AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid for construction of the City tennis facility. Purchasing Agent Sue Swensen advised only one bid was received from Progressive Contracting Inc. (PCI) in the amount of $637,975, and staff recommends award to them. Councilmember Gardner commented the project amount seemed significant to have only one bidder respond. City Manager Gary Esplin replied post-tension concrete will be used for long term playability of the courts, and therefore the City did a pre-qualification of bidders and required that they have experience with several similar projects. Only four pre-qualified bidders met this requirement. The general contractor, if pre-qualified, could then do the job, or sub the project out to another pre-qualified entity. PCI is the only one who contacted the City with pre-qualified bidders. Mr. Esplin advised the City’s estimate for the project was $620,000, and there are some items that can be deleted from the bid to come closer to the estimate. Councilmember Gardner inquired if the facility, including the restrooms and concession building, would be completed in time for the Senior Games. City Manager replied that the City is still not sure what it can afford to build, but in all probability all the facilities would not be ready for the Senior Games. Mayor McArthur expressed concern that the City not try and rush construction of the facility and compromise quality in an effort to have the facility available for the Senior Games. Councilmember Gardner asked how many bidders had an opportunity to bid the project. City Manager Gary Esplin replied the pre-qualified bidder concept was more restrictive than usual and could be difficult to meet. Parks Superintendent Lynne Scott advised bidders had ample opportunity to bid, and they knew about the pre-qualification requirement at least one month in advance. She advised she received no questions or calls from bidders. St. George City Council Minutes July 6, 2000 Page Three A motion to award the bid to PCI in the amount of $637,975 was made by Councilmember Gardner. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen. Ms. Scott advised the Mayor and Council that the City made a commitment to the Senior Games that the tennis facility would be ready for the Senior Games, and the City intends to finish the court portion of the project to meet that commitment. She advised that quality would not be compromised. Mayor McArthur called for a vote. The City Council voted as follows: Councilmember Gardner - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Isom - aye Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Whatcott - aye The motion carried. Councilmember Whatcott inquired as to where the four pre-qualified bidders were located, and if a pre-qualified expert would be present on the site. Ms. Scott replied two of the pre-qualified bidders were from Colorado, one was from Salt Lake City, and one was from California. She advised the expert will have to be a team member and be present on the site. AWARD OF BID: Consider award of contract for engineering services for Phase 3 of the Virgin River Trail Project. Purchasing Agent Sue Swensen presented the following eight bids: Alpha $64,005; Sunrise $64,425; Bulloch $65,650; Rosenberg $67,900; Caldwell/R/S $74,964; Pentacore $77,200; Bush-Gudgell $77,500; Sear-Brown $78,606. She recommended award of the bid to the low bidder, Alpha Engineering, in the amount of $64,005. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to award the bid to Alpha Engineering in the amount of $64,005. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Isom. City Manager Gary Esplin advised Phase 3 includes engineering design services and construction management for the portion of trail from the River Road bridge to the Washington City limits. It will eventually be asphalted. He advised the City applied for a grant to help with funding of the project. Mayor McArthur called for a vote. The City Council voted as follows: Councilmember Gardner - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Isom - aye Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Whatcott - aye The motion carried. ORDINANCE: Consider approval of amendments to the City’s ordinance concerning backflow devices and cross connections. City Manager Gary Esplin explained a recommendation has been received from the Water and Power Board to make the City’s backflow and cross connection ordinance less restrictive yet comply with state regulations. Councilmember Whatcott questioned a requirement under the "Violations" section of the proposed ordinance which required the City to shut off the water St. George City Council Minutes July 6, 2000 Page Four for non-compliance. He suggested the language be changed to allow the City discretion in shutting off water until everyone within the City was on a level playing field and up to code. Mayor McArthur explained the backflow prevention program is required by the state to prevent contamination of public drinking water, and requires installation of a backflow prevention device and testing of that device every year. A motion was made by Councilmember Orton to approve the ordinance with the changes suggested by Councilmember Whatcott. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote. The City Council voted as follows: Councilmember Gardner - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Isom - aye Councilmember Orton - aye Councilmember Whatcott - aye The motion carried. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution authorizing the issuance and sale of not more than $900,000 aggregate principal amount of Golf Course Revenue Bonds, Series 2000 (Capital Appreciation Bonds), of the City of St. George, Utah; fixing the maximum number of years over which the bonds may mature, the maximum interest rate which the bonds may bear, and the maximum discount from par at which the bonds may be sold; providing for the publication of a notice of bonds to be issued; providing for the running of a contest period; and related matters. City Manager Gary Esplin explained approval of this resolution would allow the City to extend the existing Sunbrook bonds for an additional three years to make improvements at Sunbrook and the City’s other courses.

...applicant would have to build all roads necessary to Plantations Drive and Sunbrook Drive, and then at some point in time a light will be needed at Sunbrook and Dixie Drive based on the volume created. They should also post a bond to pay for the traffic light. He stated the only problem he could see would be connectivity, but he assumes the project will be developed from the top down. The real problem, however, is that the City does not have the right to require them to go out to Plantations Drive as that is in the County. The rest will get built easily as access into developable areas of the project. The real problem is determining when traffic triggers the connection to Dixie Drive. The unidentified man commented property will not be sold at both ends - the property which makes the most economical sense for the business plan will be sold. Council Member Orton inquired if water storage is planned. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that staff could not make it work. There is, however, talk of trading water rights. The applicants have some rights in a well on the other side of the hill by Sunbrook, and there is a possibility of getting some reuse water there. ...

... Fleming EXCUSED Council Member Gardner SITE VISIT TO THE POINTE AT SUNBROOK PHASE 2 LOCATED OFF OF EMERAUD DRIVE AND LOST CREEK DRIVE Those present: City Manager Gary Esplin Mayor McArthur Council Member Orton Council Member Bunker Council Member Allen Council Member Whatcott OPENING Mayor McArthur opened the meeting. The invocation was offered by President Dennis Dixon, the Pledge of Allegiance was led by Boy Scout John Utley. Mayor McArthur invited the Boy Scouts and Youth City Council Members in the audience to introduce themselves. City Manager Esplin indicated the consideration to award the bid for uniform laundry service will be tabled. BID OPENINGS Consider award for a consultant contract for the electric distribution GIS infrastructure map. Purchasing Agent Swensen indicated the original consultant contract was issued in May 2004 in the amount not to exceed $10,000. This change order request is for an additional $40,000. Council Member Orton asked for an explanation of the increase. Energy Services Director Solomon indicated the original amount for this technical services contract was an estimate. The change order amount is based on the expenses to date approximately $3,400 per month. He explained what the City?s GIS department is responsible for as well as the technical needs of the Energy Services Department. He indicated no one on staff has the expertise to do this work. It is expected that Mr. Puchlik services will be needed for another year. Council Member Allen asked if Mr. Puchlik will also be the one that adds additional information to the data base as needed. Energy Services Director Solomon explained Mr. Puchlik is training staff regarding adding information; it is not the intention to become reliant on Mr. Puchlik in the long run. This data will also allow staff to develop computer models of the system to better meet the needs of growth. Motion: Council Member Whatcott made a motion to approve the consultant contract for the electrical distribution GIS infrastructure map. Second: Motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. Vote: All voted aye, motion carried. Energy Services Director Solomon indicated staff has evaluated other technical contractors that provide like services. Past estimates have been in the range of $250,000 to $500,000 because they use their staff to do the field work. The cost for this agreement is so much lower because Energy Services staff is doing the field work. There was brief discussion regarding the same mapping information being done for the water system. Consider award of bid for solid waste pick up Purchasing Agent Swensen indicated three bids were received. She recommended staying with the current vendor, which is the low bidder. She recommends the contract be awarded for a one year term with the option to renew for an additional three years. The amount is $70,000 per year. Motion: Council Member Orton made a motion to award the bid for waste water pick up to Dixie Waste for one year with the option to renew up to three years with the amount not to exceed $70,000 a year. Second: Motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker. Purchasing Agent Swensen commented the contract will be reviewed yearly. Vote: All voted aye, motion carried. Consider approval of an ordinance changing the zone from R-1-10 to AP on one acre located on the south side of Foremaster Drive and west of 1450 East Circle. City Manager Esplin noted that the applicant was not in attendance and suggested passing on this item. Consider approval of a wastewater planning resolution City Manager Esplin explained this survey is done yearly and recommended the resolution be passed. Water Services Director Barnum explained this is an annual survey done within the Waste Water division. The states goal is for operators to evaluate their own systems. The higher the number of points on the survey, the higher the facility will be on the ranking system for state funds. Typically the City?s ranking is low as it is in good shape. Motion: Council Member Orton made a motion to approve by resolution waste water planning. Second: Motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. Vote: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote as follows: Council Member Allen, aye Council Member Bunker, aye Council Member Orton, aye Council Member Whatcott, aye Motion carried.

City Council Minutes 04/03/2014:
...MINARY PLAT: Wes Jenkins presented the preliminary plat for The Plaza at Sunbrook, a 2 lot commercial subdivision located at approximately 36 North Dixie Drive, zoning is C-3. The parcel will be subdivided into 2 parcels and will have accesses line up with 360 North. There is an existing wall along the south side, the developer is proposing to work with the adjacent property owners to raise the height to 8 feet. Additionally, staff has requested the developer provide access to the future phase. A portion of the existing trail on the back side of the property will run through their property; they will dedicate that to the City for the future trail. The trail will have a slope of 2.1, therefore, staff has requested the developer to install a wall to lessen the slope. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that this section is critical with regards to the trail system. The master plan shows a crossing under Dixie Drive and the trail will continue down to the golf course. Councilmember Bowcutt stated he is concerned that if the wall is built now, it may have to be torn up when the trail is built. Mr. Jenkins stated that he believes there will be room to build the trail without having to tear down the wall. The engineer suggested putting in a 8 foot wall. The developer talked about beautifying parts of the City property, including the wash and possibly installing landscaping. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that sounds like a great idea. There is always water running through the wash. Until the property owner to the north decides to develop, the City cannot build the trail. Dave Gardner, who represents the developer, stated that there were concerns initially regarding privacy. It is less expensive for them to build a 2.1 slope and not build a wall. He suggested they build a 4 foot wall and the City build the other 4 feet. The cost for them to do the entire 8 foot would be much greater. City Manager Gary Esplin stated that is not a bad tradeoff. He believes it is a fair offer if the developer is willing to invest in the trail. He suggests to enter into a contract with the developer for them to install the 8 foot wall and the City would reimburse the developer for half the cost. MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to approve the preliminary plat for The Plaza at Sunbrook with a recommendation that the wall be installed with the City par...

Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. Glen Bundy inquired why the City was purchasing equipment when private contractors should be doing the work as it would be more cost effective. Mayor McArthur responded that the City buys its chips and oil from private contractors. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that under State law cities are allowed to do a certain amount of maintenance to its streets, and the City thinks this is the most cost effective way to get the job done. AWARD OF BID: Consider award of bid to install the north utilities project. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the low bidder withdrew his bid, and the second low bid is substantially over the estimate. It is staff?s recommendation to reject all bids and rebid the project. The engineer?s estimate was 1.4 million dollars, and the second low bid was 1.8 million. The City?s ordinance provides that when a bid is 5% over the amount of budgeted funds, the item can be rebid.

... this bid is for replacement of two bridges at Southgate and one bridge at Sunbrook. Councilmember Gardner commented that these funds are taken from the Enterprise Fund, and not the General Fund. He made a motion to award the bid to the low bidder, Bridge America, in the amount of $55,555. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott. Mayor McArthur called for a vote as follows: Councilmember Gardner - aye Councilmember Whatcott - aye Councilmember Allen - aye Councilmember Isom - aye The vote was unanimous, and the motion carried. PROXIMITY ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance amending Title 5, Chapter 2, St. George City Code, relating to proximity limitations for vending alcohol products. City Attorney Jonathan Wright explained this proposed ordinance addresses three issues - the method of measurement, proximity limitations between licensed premises, and the effect of a school, church, park or library on a licensed premise. He recommended deletion of the City’s current method of measurement by radius, and adoption of the State’s method, which also includes a blanket 200’ straight line measurement as well. The City’s ordinance currently provides for 600’ between licensed premises, while State law imposes no such restriction. Given the City’s current trend of development, the first one in would obtain the license to the exclusion of any others. Staff suggests that the City Council delete the proximity limitation between licensed premises. Lastly, the City’s ordinance states that licensed premises shall not be located within 600’ of a school, church, park or library. The City has had many instances where a school or church has built next to a licensed premise, and technically the licensed premise would then be precluded from vending alcoholic beverages. He recommended changing this provision so that if a school, church, park or library built next to an established, licensed premise, they would be doing so as their own decision and they could not force the loss of a license to sell alcohol. Councilmember Isom inquired if the proposed ordinance addressed the sale of a licensed premise when a school, church, park or library was already located by the licensed premise. St. George City Council Minutes September 7, 2000 Page Four Mr. Wright replied that the owner of the licensed premise would be able to sell the business, and the proximity limitation would not attach because the premise was already licensed. A motion to approve the ordinance as presented was made by Councilmember Gardner. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Isom. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote as follows: Councilmember Gardner - aye Councilmember Isom - aye Councilmember Whatcott - aye Councilmember Allen - aye The vote was unanimous, and the motion carried. ABANDONMENT ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance abandoning all or a portion of the platted street south of Riverside Drive. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the request is for abandonment of the road to the adjacent property owners, Ence Construction. Staff has reviewed the request and approves it. This is an old platted but undedicated street, and the City would be quit-claiming whatever interest it may have in the road.

...5, recommended approval of a hillside development permit for The Pointe at Sunbrook Phase 2 subject to the recommendations of the Hillside Review Board, as follows: (A) A preliminary grading design be provided to staff for the extension of Emeraud Drive from where the road leaves the phase. (B) Landscape plan for cuts and fills for the entire phase. (C) Determine whether the 40% slope near the extension of Emeraud Drive is man-made. Rick Rosenberg, representing the applicant, explained that there are excess materials coming out of adjacent projects, and this is one of the areas that is being studied as part of the hillside ordinance amendment. Council Member Orton inquired of Mr. Rosenberg if special precautions had be to be taken because of soil problems. Mr. Rosenberg replied that problems on Sunbrook Drive have caused humping of the road, and additional things will ...


City Council Minutes 10/18/2001:
...e it uses Lava Flow Drive within the Santa Clara City limits to access the Sunbrook maintenance building. An alternate route would necessitate City trucks then using streets through a residential subdivision. Santa Clara City’s master plan shows a 60’ road connecting Arrowhead Trail to Lava Flow Drive, and if an equivalent access is built, he recommended that the City abandon its interest in Lava Flow Drive somewhere around the City limit line. Signatures would also have to be obtained from Arlo Hafen and developers of the property waiving their objection to the closing of Lava Flow Drive. Mark Fonger of Rosenberg Engineers advised he was working with the developer, Kent Frei, who met with the Santa Clara City Planning Commission who did not recommend approval of the project. The project will still go to the Santa Clara City Council for their recommendation. Mr. Frei is now considering developing access to Malaga Avenue by a 60 foot east-west road between Arrowhead Trail and Lava Flow Drive. Mr. Esplin suggested that if the Council felt so inclined, it could agree to the abandonment of its interest in Lava Flow Drive if an alternate, permanent access of similar quality is provided. Mr. Fonger advised that Lava Flow Drive is a 50’ street improved with asphalt only, and the new access will be 60’ and fully improved. St. George City Council Minutes October 18, 2001 Page Six Council Member Gardner questioned why the City of St. George would take action to abandon its interests in Lava Flow Drive before the Santa Clara City Council approved the project. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised that the Santa Clara City Council’s decision will be affected by St. George City’s decision. Council Member Gardner stated he would still prefer to have the Santa Clara City Council take action first. Mr. Esplin advised that the Santa Clara City Council is waiting to hear from the City of St. George with regard to its position, and cannot make their decision until they know if St. George City is willing to allow Lava Flow Drive to be abandoned. Council Member Gardner made a motion to allow Lava Flow Drive to be abandoned if this action supports the decision of the Santa Clara City Council, as long as the City of St. George will still have access to the Sunbrook maintenance facility. The motion was seconded by Council Member W...

...red. City Planner Ray Snyder explained the proposed location is in the Sunbrook Ranches PD Commercial zone. He displayed a map of the site. He explained this was originally a manufacturing zone but was changed to PD Commercial zoning, and is located in the middle of a residential area. He presented a photo simulation of what the cell tower would look like. The proposal has not been well received. The request is to add “wireless telecommunication facility” to the approved uses in the PD zone. Letters in opposition to the request have been received citing aesthetics and home values. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the issue is whether or not the City Council wants to change the PD zone to allow this use, and if there is a reason to change the existing zone. City Attorney Shawn Guzman commented this is a PD Commercial zone, and there have been many requests for changes to this PD zone. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the City Council has bent over backwards approving additional uses to help the applicant keep his project going until the economy changes. Pete Simmons, representing Verizon Wireless, commented that there is a definite need for cell services. They looked at placing the tower on the north side, but there was concern based on setback requirements. Mayor McArthur inquired if a master plan for Verizon was approved. Mr. Snyder replied that a master plan for all cell towers was approved, but not specifically for this location. City Attorney Shawn Guzman replied that in any event, the cell tower master plan does not bind the City to specific sites and does not mandate the City Council to approve any particular location. It is like the general plan for the City - it is general in nature. The master plan for cell towers is to identify where the City thinks towers can go and where they are needed, but does not pinpoint exactly where the towers can be placed. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the Sunbrook Ranches PD zone was granted with specific uses, and if it included...

The Planning Commission recommends approval of the plats. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to approve the final plats and authorize the Mayor to sign them. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Almquist. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT: Consider approval of a conditional use permit to construct a detached garage to a height of 20'4" located behind the applicant?s home at 2556 East 2300 South Circle. Dustin Dell, applicant. Planner Ray Snyder advised that the Planning Commission recommended approval. The garage has a workshop area with a toilet, sink and shower. The Planning Commission asked that the shower be removed. The applicant was fine with the request. Council Member Bunker commented she could see why the applicant wanted to have a shower. City Manager Gary Esplin stated it has been the City?s position that garage additions with shower facilities can become problems later if they are rented out as living units. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Bunker to approve the conditional use permit as recommended by the Planning Commission. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Pike. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. BUILDING DESIGN AND CONCEPTUAL SITE PLAN: Planner Ray Snyder explained the request is to consider a building design and conceptual site plan to remodel and construct an addition to the existing assisted living facility at 950 South 400 East, the Meadows. There are 121 existing units and the applicants propose to add 28 new units plus 30 Alzheimer units. The new construction consists of 33,000 sq. ft. Parking requirements are met and exceeded. A materials board has been presented. The Planning Commission recommends approval. The building height will not exceed 35'. City Manager Gary Esplin inquired if the project was still owned by the OK Kids Foundation as there were certain requirements placed on the project in order to bond for it. He inquired if the bonds had been paid off and who owned the project. St. George City Council Minutes June 19, 2008 Page Five David May, architect, stated that Larry Blake and Vaughn Pulsipher owned the project to his knowledge. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that as part of any action on the City?s behalf, it should be made subject to making sure the ownership is cleared up and there are no outstanding problems. Mr. May commented that during financing there was no mention of any outstanding debt on the property and he imagined the bonds were satisfied. Council Member Pike inquired if the plan was to redo the entire exterior. Mr. May replied that the entire structure will receive a facelift. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Pike to approve the building design and conceptual site plan as presented, subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission and making sure the bonds are satisfied. 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 approval of a zone change from R-1-10 to PD Commercial on 1.42 acres located at approximately 1300 East 900 South Street. Neil Glauser, Blue Mountain Partners, applicant. This item has been postponed until the July 17 City Council meeting. PUBLIC HEARING/PRELIMINARY PLAT and HILLSIDE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT: Public hearing to consider approval of the preliminary plat for Red Cliffs Park Subdivision with 103 lots located at approximately 2050 East and 1000 North in the Middleton area. Stacy Young, applicant. Jay Sandberg advised a zone change for the area was recently approved. The subdivision has a total of 103 lots with a density of under three units per acre on 34.6 acres. The subdivision has mainly public roads. There are 100' setbacks and no-disturb areas. Areas around the units are common areas. The area in the wash is going to be a low impact park area with a small gazebo and trailhead for a future public trail up the north side of the project to tie into the reserve trail system. With regard to the hillside development permit, there is a requirement that the no-disturb area on the hillside be fenced with orange fencing during construction. A brief discussion took place on access into Washington City at a future date. City Manager Gary Esplin advised that the project meets City requirements and there is plenty of time to resolve the issue of connection into Washington City. Mr. Sandberg advised that a request has been received to allow a temporary access road to connect to a project within Washington City. This request is being reviewed. Additionally, the construction access is through Escalara. 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 Bunker. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Pike to approve the hillside development permit. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Bunker.

Council Member Almquist clarified that the approval was subject to the orange fencing and all recommendations of the Hillside Review Board. PUBLIC HEARING/PRELIMINARY PLAT: Public hearing to consider approval of the preliminary plat for Milne Estates Subdivision with four lots located along 3430 East at approximately 2050 South. Travis Milne, applicant. St. George City Council Minutes June 19, 2008 Page Six Jay Sandberg advised there is an existing home on the property in the Little Valley area. The request is to subdivide the property into four lots for resale. The request also includes approval of a delay agreement for improvements on the culdesac. Lot 2 will have access from 3430 East and in the future, when the lots are improved, the culdesac will have to be improved and all improvements finished. The Planning Commission recommends approval subject to a delay agreement for improvement of the culdesac and utilities for Lots 3 and 4, utilities be approved and installed for Lot 2, a final plat for all four lots is approved, the improvements adjacent to Lot 1 be completed on 3430 East, and all conditions be completed prior to issuance of a building permit. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Allen to approve the plat subject to the recommendations of the Planning Commission. 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/BUDGET: Public hearing with regard to the fiscal year 2008-2009 budget for the City of St. George. City Manager Gary Esplin recommended that the public hearing be opened and questions addressed after public comment is received. Mayor McArthur commented it has been recommended that funding be restored for some programs in the Recreation and Public Safety departments. He then opened the public hearing. Jack Davison advised he sent a letter to the City Council opposing the proposed golf fee increase. He then read the letter. Doug Burgin stated that the unilateral raising of golf fees over the years has run people away from the courses. He suggested the City find a way to make golf affordable for senior citizens. He stated this could not be done by raising fees. He stated that golf was the only sport in the City that had to pay for itself and extra money from the general fund should be used to help out. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that the golf courses do not pay for themselves and today are $1.6 million in the red. $500,000 was transferred from the Economic Development Fund to the Golf Course Fund this year, last year and in previous years. These funds come from sales tax. He stated that those who use the softball fields pay their share as well. If there was not a subsidy for the golf courses, rates would be much higher. Jim McCormick commented that excessive golf cart rental fees should not be used to subsidize golf course maintenance fees. Mayor McArthur replied this was not being done. Mr. McCormick continued saying that reducing cart fees would entice more golfers to the courses. He stated the City does not waive electrical fees, garbage fees, drainage fees, etc. for City employees, and it should not do so with golf fees. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that golf fees are waived only through the City?s employee fitness program which is one factor in the City seeing a $400,000 decrease in health insurance rates. Mr. McCormick commented if free golf is being offered to employee as an incentive for recruitment of loyal employees, this would be fine, but green fees should be charged to these employees? departments, not the rest of the golfers. John Gallacher advised he was speaking on behalf of senior golfers. He presented a petition in opposition to increased golf fees signed by 153 senior golfers. He advised at a recent meeting Mr. Matt Loo indicated there has been in increase in golf revenue of $145,000 but a decrease in rounds. He stated the bottom line is the natives are unhappy and are prepared to take another step if there is no reconciliation. St. George City Council Minutes June 19, 2008 Page Seven Mayor McArthur commented that recommendations will be made which are fair. Additionally, everything needed for the golf courses has gone up and nothing has gone down. Greg Stevens commented that golf courses are luxuries and in his opinion City golf courses should pay their way. He stated he did not see a problem with a small subsidy for golf, but he did not know if cities should even be in the golf business as much as they are. He stated the golf courses should be operated as a going concern and fees set appropriately. He suggested that perhaps fees could be structured to offer a fee for local players vs. those from out of town. He suggested if no one is using the courses, they should be torn down. He stated golf courses should pay for their own water. He stated that seniors deserved some sort of discount, but he would rather see an off-peak discount or volunteer labor in exchange for golf. He stated he also wanted to see alternative energy investments and a committee formed to lobby for a land grant to build a solar power plant or wind power plant. Larry Gonzales commented that seniors need support from the City. He commented the age to be considered a senior should be changed from 55 to 65. He suggested the cache card rate be lowered for those 65 years or age or older and also for golf carts. He inquired how many golf tournaments were held each year and where the income from the tournaments and pro shops go. Shanda Enfield, a member of the CAT team for Area 10, advised she was speaking on behalf of the Desert Hills community. She requested $15,100 to complete the sidewalk on Desert Hills Drive. She requested clarification of the minutes. Jerry Christensen, Downtown Business Alliance, requested funding in the amount of $5,000 for this year?s Fourth of July celebration on Main Street and $30,000 to help with events for the last half of this year. Mayor McArthur commented that the City is already funding the Fourth of July celebration at Worthen Park. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. City Manager Gary Esplin commented there is plenty of documentation for the golf course budget and it is available for anyone who would like to see it. Revenue estimates are developed from historical data such as actual rounds of play, etc. He explained that when the Black Rock Nine was built at Sunbrook it was financed through a lease purchase through the Municipal Bui...

PUBLIC HEARING/AMEND PD ZONE/ORDINANCE: Public hearing to consider a request to amend the Sienna Park Condominium portion of the Stonebridge Planned Development zone at 271 N. Country Lane (west of Dixie Drive) to revise the site plan and building elevations. Richard Staples, applicant. Mayor McArthur explained that this item was on a previous agenda but was continued to this meeting in order to make a site visit. Council Member Bunker inquired of the applicant why the units closest to the road could not be two stories instead of three stories. Rick Rosenberg, representing the applicant, replied that the unit closest to the road will be two stories instead of three stories, the other units will be sloped down to the road, and they have done everything they can to drop the three story buildings. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott to approve the request by ordinance. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Orton. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Bunker - 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 OS and M&G to PD Residential on 567.11 acres and to amend the existing Sun River PD zone by adding said acreage to the Sun River development, located west of I-15. Darcy Stewart and SITLA, applicants. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that this item was on an agenda in June but was tabled due to several unresolved issues. The request has been scaled back from the original request. The Planning Commission recommends approval subject to eight conditions recommended by the Traffic Engineer: 1. Preserve right-of-way and provide right turn deceleration lanes at intersections along Pioneer Road and Sun River Parkway. These Pioneer Road intersections include Arrowhead Canyon Drive, Bluegrass Way, Havasu Drive, and future commercial driveways (in both the northbound and southbound directions). These Sun River Parkway intersections include Arrowhead Canyon Drive, Country Club Drive, Ironwood Drive, Big River Drive, and Wide River Drive (in both the eastbound and westbound directions). Many of these Sun River Parkway intersections have already met this requirement. 2. Provide left turn lanes where left turns are anticipated. The submitted Access Management Plan by Orth Rodgers in 2004 has specified where left turns are not permitted in future Sun River phases. 3. Participate in the solution that comes from UDOT?s analysis of the roundabouts at Milepost 4 to improve capacity issues. This may include re-striping, removing curb, gutter, and sidewalk, and widening with asphalt at the east ?teardrop? St. George City Council Minutes August 18, 2005 Page Six roundabout. The purpose would be to maintain the existing LSO of the roundabout and teardrop. 4. Provide a traffic signal at Man O War and Pioneer Road when warranted which may be when Phase I is nearly completed. 5. The Atkinville interchange will be designed for construction during the next 12 months. Right of way requirements will be made known near the end of this 12 month process. It will be expected that future land planning by either Sun River or SITLA will be aware that right-of-way will be required and that no land use plans have been or will be approved adjacent to I-15 until such time these right-of-way requirements are known. 6. Provide adequate site distance at all intersections per AASHTO guidelines. 7. All signing and striping shall conform to City and MUTCD standards. 8. No other phases of Sun River are to be approved until the Atkinville interchange at Milepost 2 has been or is clearly scheduled to be completed. Mr. Nicholson explained that Phase 1 contains 1,598 homes, 681 of which are already built. The applicant understands and agreed with the eight conditions recommended by the traffic engineer. The applicant is also requesting that the old standard of 8' setbacks to the dwelling unit and 18' to the garage be approved, rather than the City?s new standard of a 10' setback to the dwelling unit and 20' to the garage. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Edward Southwick inquired how many acres were dedicated to open space. Rick Rosenberg replied that 166 acres are in golf course, 81 acres are non-floodway open space on the hillsides, and 34.5 acres are in the floodway. Council Member Gardner explained that when the property was annexed into the City, it was zoned Open Space as a holding zone and was never intended to remain in open space. The City?s holding zone is now Mining and Grazing. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. Council Member Bunker expressed dismay at approving 917 more units in the area due to the increased traffic on the roundabouts. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the units would be phased in and not built all at once. The Atkinville interchange will be under construction by next summer or fall. Mr. Rosenberg commented that the traffic study indicates there is still some ability to grow, and it will be a long time until an increase in traffic will be seen. Council Member Whatcott inquired of staff its recommendation as far as the setback request. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson replied that 10' and 20' setbacks were better. MOTION: A motion was made by Council Member Orton to approve the request with the City?s current setbacks of 10' and 20' and subject to the eight recommendations of the City?s traffic engineer. SECOND: The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. VOTE: Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows: Council Member Orton - aye Council Member Allen - aye Council Member Gardner - aye Council Member Whatcott - aye Council Member Bunker - no The motion carried. Community Development Director Bob Nicholson commented that the final legal description will be for less than 500 acres.

City Council Minutes 01/26/2006:
...ient revenue to cover expenses. Golf Pro Reed McArthur advised that at Sunbrook the punch card is only good Monday through Thursday, October through May. At the other courses it is good seven days of the week. St. George City Council Minutes January 26, 2006 Page Four Council Member Whatcott explained that the cache card is no different than the current punch card, and nothing would change. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the punch card is a better rate than what the person from Salt Lake can play for. He stated there was no reason to limit play June through September when there is daylight from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and the capacity on the courses is wide open. In February through May tee times are at a premium and players are willing to pay a higher rack rate. Rich Williams commented that local golfers would see no benefit to a $300 cache card, and inquired if the price could be lowered to $170, the same price as the punch card. He inquired why there couldn?t be a resident and non-resident rate. Council Member Orton replied that a $300 cache card will discourage non-residents from purchasing the card, yet allow locals to play for a cheap rate. He stated that it was too difficult to prove residency. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that tax money is not used to subsidize the golf courses. He inquired if residents of Santa Clara and Washington, or snow birds who live here in an RV part of the year, should be considered residents. Mr. Williams commented that city golfers want to see good courses at a good price. They want clean restrooms, safe parking lots, and good grass and greens which are fun to play and well maintained, without being fancy. Locals should not have to pay the prices of a country club; they want good quality for a good price. Mayor McArthur commented that the cache card is simple and requires identification. The City must run its courses like a business and it cannot sell the service for less than the cost. Mr. Williams commented that nothing said today convinces him that the courses are being well managed or that the City is running out of money. City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the Golf Course Fund lost $500,000 last year due to the flooding. Mayor McArthur commented that Southgate has not even been rebuilt. City Manager Gary Esplin invited Mr. Williams to review the City audit to see where funds for the golf courses are coming from. He commented that if the golf courses were making money, or even breaking even, this discussion would not be necessary. John Gallagher commented that he represented a pool of 10 seniors concerned with the increase in the punch card or cache card. He commented that in the heat of the summer the non-residents will not play, but the residents will. He stated he felt the rate for the first two quarters should be at least absorbed in part in the summer rate, and that residents should get a break due to the increased cost of utilities, prescription drugs and health insurance premiums. Doug Crandall suggested that a tax form be used to prove residency. He inquired what would happen to any balance left on a punch card. Mayor McArthur replied that the balance could be used up at the rate purchased. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that golfers can use the punch card until it is gone. Mr. Crandall commented it would be more reasonable to maintain the punch cards and maintain a resident and non-resident rate. He stated he could not afford to pay $600 for two cache cards - one for his wife. He stated the cost of living index was not equal to the cost of the increase. City Manager Gary Esplin replied that a husband and wife could use the same card. He clarified that at Sunbrook someone without a cache card would be paying 33% more than someone...

The area to be repaired is located near the Sunbrook Golf Course Maintenance Building and involves building a maintenance access road as well as rip rap along the Twin Creeks which is outside the scope of FEMA work. Budget and Financial Planning Manager Deanna Brklacich provided a reconciliation of the Capital Projects and Fund Balance spreadsheet which shows monies that the City is committing to the flood projects that are not in the Fiscal Year 2012 budget. City Manager Gary Esplin explained the figures contained in the spreadsheet. See Exhibit “A” attached. The City submitted a grant application to FEMA for mitigation money to cover the cost of additional work to be done along the Sunbrook Golf Course as well as near the Mill Creek turbines. Funds needed ...

Planning Commission Minutes 12/10/2013:
...parking so the access comes down from the road similar to the units out at Sunbrook. We’ve graded it so there will be venting and access from the road for the underground parking. The northern properties will have driveways so there’s no underground parking on those. We also have guest parking available. There is also a cul-de-sac there for emergency vehicles. The city is looking at completing Mesa Palms Drive.” Commissioner Ron Read questioned if the underground parking is completely enclosed or if it would have windows. Tyler Hoskins answered stating that there will be windows in some of the underground parking. Some grades will allow us to put the windows but not all of them. The buildings are 35’ from the top of the rough to the finish grade. Then we’re going to go down about 5’ so we can punch some windows in the back side. Chairman Ron Bracken asked if the elevations will be a bit different. Tyler Hoskins responded yes, it will be opened and vented with natural sunlight. The other neat thing is that there will be an elevator near the staircase on at least one building. The other buildings won’t have the elevators yet but we will leave the space for it. In terms of landscaping and the blue clay; there are quite a few homes that are moving out there. Our plan is to minimize the water and zero-scape where we can and make sure we can line and cap the water. We’ll use shrubs and decorative rock. Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston asked the applicant if there is covered parking for the other units or just driveways. Tyler Hoskins responded that they are just driveways but they also have garages. Commissioner Nathan Fisher asked if the elevation is uniform throughout. Tyler Hoskins responded no, the worst case scenario is the cross section shown. Tyler explained the stepped walls that will be put up. Commissioner Nathan Fisher then asked if the southern building would stand out more. Tyler Hoskins responded that if you look at the site plan you can see where the walls extend. There is 16’ elevation difference between the lot and the unit. Commissioner Nathan Fisher asked if the unit is the 8-plex. Tyler Hoskins conceded yes, the 8-plext will stand out a little more. Commissioner Nathan Fisher asked if the elevation of the second building would be similar or higher. Tyler Hoskins responded that the second sheet is a worst case scenario for elevations. 34:45:00 Commissioner Ross Taylor asked what the possibility of trading the pickle ball for the second unit is. Tyler Hoskins responded that there is too much of a grade difference there. There’s a 6’ wall there to try to get the courts level. It works better with the site plan to put it where it is because of the grades. Commissioner Ross Taylor posed a question to the applicant asking; if I were in lot 16 and 17 what would I want you to do? Tyler Hoskins responded stating that hopefully those lot owners are here to tell us. By the way we’ve met with most of the owners there and the consensus seemed to be that they were in favor of the project. What we heard from them was support. Commissioner Nathan Fisher asked if there were designated areas for refuse. Tyler Hoskins responded that there’s one double refuse with a block wall and then the driveway units will have their own. There is room for additional dumpsters if we need them. Deputy City Attorney Paula Houston asked if this new layout has kept the same layout for the roads and utilities. Tyler Hoskins responded that yes, it does. We can go test the sewer that is already there but we decided to start over. Michael Eager (citizen - lot 14) stated: we are elated to have the property developed. It will reduce dust and tumbleweeds. We’re happy with it. We invested there because of the view. We’ve reviewed what the applicant has shown and there’s no way that they will obstruct our view. Chairman Ron Bracken closed the item to the public and opened the item to the commission. There were no further comments from the commissioners. MOTION Commissioner Ross Taylor made a motion to approve the proposed zone change with the stipulation that they meet the standard of no more than 9 units per acre which is the maximum allotted medium density residential. Commissioner Julie Hullinger seconded the motion. Discussion on the motion: Chairman Ron Bracken stated that this is a zone change amendment so they will have to come back showing the design.
