The mural will be on the building east of Allred’s Auto Body. The City is currently working on acquiring an easement. The mural will be in pastel colors and will cost $7,900 with $1,200 from a Utah Division of Arts & Museums grant. There was a lot of interest when the picture was posted on Facebook. It was determined the picture was taken around 1957 or 1958.

b. Discussion regarding the Redevelopment Agency facilitating Façade Grants and Wall Grants within the Tremont Center Community Development Project Area
Manager Warnke stated that Brigham City has had façade grants since the early 1990’s. Façade grants should help stimulate private investments and revitalize Main Street. Brigham City reimburses half the cost, up to $10K, with property owners paying the total amount up front then seeking reimbursement from the City. Brigham City Council makes the decision on approving grants based on the following guidelines:
• Availability of funds
• Following recommendation of City approved architect
• Willingness of applicant to adhere to historic guidelines
Tremonton could also include prioritizing two story buildings that are easily visible and signs that are historic like the Jay’s sign at Jim and Dave’s. Signage could have fewer funds appropriated because they come and go with businesses.
The new street lights were discussed and the desire for additional street lights. The entire streetscape should be addressed and plans made. New streetlights could be installed in the block by the railroad as it does not require landscaping. The streetlights could have water and power lines to provide for greenery in the summer and lights for displays in the winter.
c. Discussion of Tremonton City Agency Reports for 2015 Tax Increment Year
The following reports were distributed to the Council previously but there have been a few changes because State Legislative requirements have changed.
1. Tremont Center Community Development Project Area
2. West Liberty Foods EDA Project Area
Motion by Board Member Holmgren to adjourn the meeting. Motion seconded by Board Member Vance. Vote: Board Member Doutre – aye, Board Member Holmgren – aye, Board Member Reese – aye, Board Member Rohde – aye, and Board Member Vance – aye. Motion approved.
The meeting adjourned at 8:32 p.m.
