REVIEW PLANNING/WORK SESSION WITH CITY COUNCIL
a.    Prioritized list of potential projects
The Trails Committee met with the City Council for a work session on August 18th regarding the Trails Committee budget. The Committee discussed the projects they would like to be
completed, and divided the projects into hillside projects and city projects. Most of the projects the Trails Committee would like to complete could be completed with RAP Tax revenue.

Hillside Projects
•    Signage on roads and trails in the mountains.
•    Public education programs of private property trails.

City Projects
•    UDOT proposal for bike lanes on Main Street.
•    Proposed bike lanes on 400 West, 400 East, Lund Lane, Pages Lane, Chase Lane, and the Frontage Road.
•    Bike repair station at the Maverik Gas Station currently in planning at Parrish Lane and 1250 West.

BUDGET

The Trails Committee will work with Bruce Cox, Parks and Recreation Director, on the cost of projects the Committee would like to complete. Committee members must be neutral on the RAP Tax and government issues. City funds cannot be used to encourage or discourage RAP Tax funding.

REVIEW OF EAGLE SCOUT PROJECTS

The Trails Committee discussed having Boy Scouts make and install signs and benches on the trails for their Eagle Scout project. The Boy Scout could also help to survey the roads and trails for erosion damage, graffiti, and what needs to be done to repair the damage. Greg Gunnell and Rick Turner will work together on this project. The Forest Service has said they do not want any Boy Scout doing projects on their property because of liability issues.  Rick said he is currently working with an Eagle Scout who is documenting the erosion on Forest Service property in hopes that he can repair the erosion with Forest Service approval.

TRAIL TO THE “V”

Viewmont Alumni Association would like to remake the trail leading to the “V” on the mountain. Chair Peterson reported Lee Skabelund is a retired Forest Service employee who said he would like to help the Trails Committee with trail issues.

OTHER BUSINESS

Matt Johnson reported there is a faint trail that leads from Skyline Drive that connects to the Shoreline Trail. This trail is around one mile in length and traverses through Bountiful and Centerville. There are safety concerns if people are walking on this trail, as it runs close to the gun range.

NEXT MEETING

The next Trails Committee meeting will be held on Thursday, September 17, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. in the Administrative Conference Room at City Hall.

ADJOURN

At 9:15 p.m., Chair Peterson made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Rick Turner seconded the motion, which was passed by unanimous vote (5-0).
