Minutes of the Centerville City Trails Committee meeting held Thursday, August 20, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. in the City Hall Administrative Conference Room, 250 North Main, Centerville, Utah.
REVIEW PLANNING/WORK SESSION WITH CITY COUNCIL
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.
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.
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.
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).
