Council Work Session 10/9/13

City Council work sessions are on the second Wednesday each month. During this meeting council members may discuss issues, but do not make any formal decisions. Many of the projects discussed below are items that will be on future city council agendas.

City Administrator John Inch Morgan discussed the city's sidewalk program and how to handle sidewalk repairs and the 50/50 program with residents.

Morgan updated the City Council on the proposed VECC merger. VECC handles our 9-1-1 calls. This merger is with several of the cities in the valley and with Unified Police Department.

Economic development staffer Wayne Harper updated the city council on a pedestrian safety project on 4500 South between 550-800 West. The city is hoping to enter into an interlocal agreement with UDOT.

Community Development Director Mark McGrath led a discussion on multiple dwelling units in single family zones. Some residents have complained about home rentals which have several families living there. Elected officials are concerned about this growing trend.

McGrath discussed small area master plans in the city. He showed the City Center Small Area Master Plan and some new concepts for review. As the city continues discussions with potential developers, having this small area master plan solidified helps planning commissioners and elected officials with a specific direction and vision.
