POTENTIAL ENHANCEMENTS ON 1250 WEST PARRISH LANE INTERSECTION

Steve Thacker, RDA Executive Director, commented that powder coating the poles in the 1250 West Parrish Lane intersection would enhance the appearance of the intersection.  He explained and discussed with the Board a few enhancements that would draw attention to pedestrians crossing at the intersection.  Mr. Thacker asked the Board if they are interested in hiring a landscape architect to put together a landscape plan for the intersection to direct development as it occurs.  Director Fillmore commented that cohesive landscaping can make a big impact.  Blaine Lutz, Finance Director, recommended the City ask UDOT to extend power to all four corners.  Mr. Thacker agreed to obtain a cost estimate for a conceptual landscaping plan.  A majority of the Board indicated they are in favor of powder coating the poles.  Staff will meet with UDOT to discuss potential pedestrian safety improvements.  The RDA Board members expressed the opinion that UDOT should pay for pedestrian safety upgrades.
