5:30 Work Session re Parks Capital Improvement Plan – The City Council and Parks and Recreation Committee will meet together in a work session at 5:30 p.m. to discuss the proposed Parks Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). The Committee was asked to review a draft prepared by staff, make revisions and organize the projects into categories of high, medium and low priority. The enclosed document reflects their recommendations. The projects within each priority category are not ranked relative to one another, even though each project has a number by it. The numbering is simply for identification purposes. The CIP relates to several other documents to be considered by the City Council in their regular meeting Tuesday evening, including a General Plan amendment (Item #4) and the Parks Impact Fee Facilities Plan and Impact Fee Analysis (Item #5). The cost estimates in the Parks CIP are still under review by the City Engineer and, therefore, could change. Many of those improvements are in the Parks Impact Fee Facilities Plan that will be considered during Item #5 in the regular meeting.
Dinner will be provided during the work session.
7:00 Regular City Council meeting
E.1. Minutes Review and Acceptance – The minutes to be approved are enclosed, including the minutes of the September 18 meetings, which were tabled at the October 2 meeting. The Recording Secretary, pursuant to the Council’s direction, has added a lot more detail to the September 18 work session minutes—pertaining to the Main and Parrish Intersection Project.
E.2. Summary Action Calendar
E.3. Public Hearing – Final Subdivision Plat for Lot 4, Legacy Crossing at Parrish Lane – The developers of Legacy Crossing at Parrish Lane want to subdivide Lot 4 into several smaller lots for commercial development. The Planning Commission recommends approval. See Cory’s enclosed report.
E.4. Public Hearing -- General Plan Amendment re Parks, Open Space and Trails – The Parks, Open Space and Trails sections of the General Plan have been out of date for some years. Before discussing the City’s park impact fee, which funds many of the park improvements, the City Council should first amend the General Plan to clearly establish a “current level of service,” a key factor in the Impact Fee Analysis. The proposed General Plan amendment identifies the City’s current level of service for developed parks as 3.24 acres per 1,000 residents. The General Plan amendment also identifies other general objectives pertaining to parks, open space and trails within the city. The Plan amendment was first reviewed by the Parks and Recreation Committee and the Trails Committee, then forwarded to the Planning Commission, which recommends approval.
E.5. Impact Fee Facilities Plan/Analysis – After discussing the Parks Capital Improvement Plan during the work session, and adopting a General Plan amendment in Item #4 of the regular meeting, the City Council will then discuss the Parks Impact Fee Facilities Plan and Impact Fee Analysis. This enclosed document was prepared by Jacob Smith, Management Assistant, using the guidelines in a handbook that explains the requirements of State law pertaining to impact fees. His analysis relies on cost estimates that could change upon review by the City Engineer, and therefore, should be considered only tentative at this point. The City Attorney is also reviewing the analysis. State law allows cities to charge park impact fees for improvements that maintain the current level of service as the community grows. The current level of service is 3.24 acres of developed park acreage per 1,000 population. The tentative analysis shows that a park impact fee of approximately $2,600 could be justified based on the numbers used. I expect, however, this number will go down, based on some discussion with the City Attorney. The City’s current park impact fee is $1,200 per residential unit. Staff recommend the City Council increase the park impact fee, but will further refine the analysis before asking the City Council to make a decision in a later meeting. The Council has the discretion to decide how much the increase will be, so long as it does not exceed the maximum justified by the Impact Fee Analysis. Jake has enclosed in his document current impact fees for other cities in South Davis County.
E.6. Public Hearing – Zoning Code Text Amendment – To be postponed – This matter, as well as Item #7 will be postponed to a future meeting. The Planning Commission was scheduled to consider this matter at its October 10 meeting, but due to a lack of time, had to postpone it until their next meeting; therefore, the City Council also needs to postpone this matter.
E.7. Public Hearing – Chapel Ridge Cove Subdivision PDO Zone approval – As mentioned in #6 above, this matter will also be postponed because the Planning Commission did not consider it at their October 10 meeting.
E.8. Mayor’s Report – The Mayor may wish to report on a few matters.
E.9. City Manager’s Report
E.11. Miscellaneous Business – At this time, I have not identified any matters under this heading.
E.12. Closed meeting, if necessary – At this time, I do not know of a need for a closed meeting, but the agenda allows for that possibility.
