Agenda Item #4 – Smith Disconnect

Public hearing (10.2.502-5 – 45 days)
Eric Bunker received a letter from Yeates (Smith attorney) stating
The property is an island
Services are provided
The property will loose value if it is not disconnected
Eric addressed the items in order. First the property is not an
Island. Second the property will not loose value, it will increase
Because of the rural atmosphere. A change for zoning on the property can be applied for but if they are allowed to disconnect
The property would return to the county.

Dan Harvath stated that if they disconnected back to the county
The zoning would be RA-5.
Josh Yeates asked what the possible zoning would be for the

Mayor Duggin replied

Josh Yeates asked about access issues regarding new zoning

Dan Harvath stated that the current access is adequate.

A discussion ensued on the possibilities of, once disconnected,
The property being accepted into Heber City and the overlapping
Of land use and annexation policy plans by Heber City and Wasatch County.

The issue of who decided on the Town of Daniel boundary was
Raised and it was explained that they were drawn according to
Who signed the petitions.

Kristi Cox asked what the Town of Daniel hoped to accomplish
By keeping the property in the town.

Gary Walton answered that they were included because they
Signed the petition and they did not want to be a part of
Heber City. This would defeat 9 years work.

Kristi Cox stated that no one wants high density housing and
Questioned what the Council was accomplishing by leaving
A peninsula.

Mayor Duggin stated that the Town of Daniel 20 year annexation
Policy intends to annex and the Smith property allows contiguity.

Gary Walton asked the Smiths how long they have owned the

Susan Smith replied 3 years.
Gary Walton stated that the approval for the town happened
Earlier this year and that the Council had no control of where
The boundaries were drawn.

Ron Smith stated that he was the petition signer and he signed
To limit further development. They are new property owners and
He thought her was limiting growth around his property and that
He was mislead.

Gary Walton stated that we did not know Heber City was going
To develop the surrounding property high density.

Kristi Cox asked that politics be left out of the question and that
We look at the facts
Will not allow a disconnect serve a purpose or
Will it be a sore spot
It is a unique piece of property

There was more discussion on border and boundaries, zoning
And the value of the property. It was explained that Smiths
Could apply for a zoning change.

To not allow the disconnect because it does not meet
