3. New Business:

a. Preliminary review and consideration of Chadaz Estates, Phase 3A – Mark Smith and Sattar Tabriz

The Board discussed streetlights and the need to have them listed. The City will get a fee in lieu from Mark Smith to put in streetlights. Rocky Mountain Power (RMP) will install the lights at a cost of $1,500 per light. If it comes in less, the difference will be reimbursed to Mr. Smith. It was noted the standard spacing of hydrants is 500 feet. They talked about transitioning the curb into the existing curb. The existing right-of-way is larger than City standard. There is a gap between the existing sidewalk and the new subdivision which the City will fill. The area on the south of the property will have rocks.

Engineer Breinholt noted the minimum irrigation the City wants is six inches (6”). The City will pay the difference for oversizing. Mr. Smith stated he is not a proponent of secondary water. If Mr. Smith is required to put in infrastructure for a secondary water system, it may make it harder to sell lots because of the additional costs. Manager Warnke noted that several other developers have been installing infrastructure for secondary water.

Chairman Bench noted telecommunications conduit need to be shown and there must be a title report. Mr. Smith will look for the soil report from Chadaz Estates Phase 2 and forward it to the Board. The City wants a manhole over the Tremonton Garland Drainage line so they can have access. The City previously agreed to participate in a fence. Chairman Bench said they must notice the open communication trenches.

The owner’s dedication, high water level, and a note about the water and sewer authority need to be on the plat. Language is needed to show the developer dedicates land to the City for the retention. Public streets must be noted. It was noted the storm drain pond will have grass. There must also be a note about field drains on plat stating they will leave their integrity. Lot 82 needs to go to the lateral not the manhole. The property corners will be marked with lead in the curb. The Board asked that the sewer be marked permanently in the concrete. It was noted that the City no longer accepts a letter of credit. They accept cash or an escrow account in both names for 110% of the estimate minus the streetlights and chip seal and fog. The fee in lieu is a cash bond for streetlights and the chip seal.

Motion by Director Fulgham to approve the preliminary with the comments mentioned for Chadaz Estates, Phase 3A. Motion seconded by Engineer Breinholt with approval of road and sewer grade. Vote: Chairman Bench – aye, Engineer Breinholt – aye, Director Fulgham – aye, and Manager Warnke – aye. Motion approved. Chairman Bench noted it goes to the Planning Commission on January 10, 2017 then comes back to the LUAB for final approval. Director Fulgham will be attending the Planning Commission on January 10, 2017.
