3. New Business:

a. Discussion and consideration of Final Approval for Chadaz Estates, Phase 3A – Mark Smith and Sattar Tabriz

The plat is good but there was concern with the connection points. The sidewalk on the south side of the street is out of the right-of-way. Mr. Sattar suggested removing the park strip. Kathy Fuhriman remarked it would be like 600 South. Engineer Breinholt said he would leave the right-of-way lining up and shift the road. A plan was approved in 2010 regarding drainage detention/retention. They would like to do a retention basin against 550 South on the corner lot. It could be a detention in the future if the City runs a line down 600 South to the Malad River. They discussed putting gravel to help the water filter. Director Fulgham would like to take over the Tremonton/Garland Drainage district line so they can better maintain it. There is no better place to have a detention basin than at that spot. Mr. Sattar noted they will locate the drainage line and install the manhole. Once the depth is known, it can be filled with gravel and covered with grass. They can do a trench on the east.

Ms. Fuhriman stated it would need to be noted on the building permits that the property is subject to an underground drain line easement. Mr. Sattar said if the line is encountered, it would need to be reconnected so the water does not back up. The note should be on the final engineer plan for the lots affected. Ms. Fuhriman would like a copy of the information Mr. Tabriz has regarding the lines. She noted she appreciates all he does. Chairman Bench said Mr. Tabriz can send a note to Myron concerning the existing radius. Engineer Breinholt noted there should be a shift having the irrigation on the same side as the sewer, not the culinary, to avoid any mistaken connection.

Chairman Bench will finish a Development Agreement that will have the fee-in-lieu for streetlights and chip seal. Prior to being recorded, the City will need a signed Development Agreement and the fee-in-lieu. Engineer Breinholt will need to give approval on the construction drawings. Once everything is in order and construction has started, they can call and get the streetlights installed.

Motion by Engineer Breinholt to approve the Final Plat for Chadaz Estates, Phase 3A pending review of construction drawings. Motion seconded by Manager Warnke. Vote: Chairman Bench – aye, Engineer Breinholt – aye, Director Fulgham – aye, and Manager Warnke – aye. Motion approved.

b. Review of Annexation Petition and Road Alignment – Val Stokes and Jim Flint

Chairman Bench told Mr. Flint they need to square up the road. The Land Use Authority Board (LUAB) needs to obtain the right-of-way for the road. Manager Warnke had a conversation with Roger Rigby from Rocky Mountain Power (RMP) about dedicating the right-of-way. Mr. Rigby had issued regarding the separation from the power pole and the need to dedicate. He was against the first option which is a straight shot from 2000 West and has the road mostly on RMP’s property. Mr. Flint asked if Mr. Rigby would be amenable if Val Stokes were to put in all the improvements. Manager Warnke stated he does not think RMP will participate financially at this point. The plan is to do minimal improvements now and get the entry/first driveway on Mr. Stokes property. Mr. Flint noted it would be a big benefit to RMP to have the full intersection and improvements.

Manager Warnke stated RMP is not requesting any approvals and does not give the City any basis for exaction and they are not in City limits. Engineer Breinholt noted that when the RMP land is developed they will be required to have the road and improvements.

The plan has a detention pond that will provide a good buffer. Manager Warnke will try to contact Mr. Rigby today. It was noted the City pays for upsizing pipes. Director Fulgham stated the water main will be private if Mr. Stokes installs a fire line. It was suggested they install a meter for landscaping and separate meter for each facility.

c. Walk ins*

Allen Anderson asked about property in Holmgren Estates where he would like to build a home. The property is by a section that is a dedicated right-of-way for the City. They noted he must have nothing less than ten (10) feet from property line or nineteen and a half (19 ½) feet from curb.
