Heber City, Utah

Planning member Barry Hobbs arrived at 7:10 p.m. Secretary Kathy-Jo Percy was present to record the minutes

and Ryan Taylor of Epic Engineering was there.

Chairman Bunker called the regularly scheduled meeting to order at 7:00 p.m.

  1. Public comment concerning any issue that is not on this agenda.

There was no public comment

  1. Swimming pool ordinance proposal. (Council requested)

The Daniel Town Council received an application for a swimming pool to be added to a residential

property. The members of the council requested that the Planning Commission devise a swimming pool

ordinance for the town and submit it to the Town Council for approval. We currently have a small swimming

pool ordinance which is basically a fencing ordinance. In preparation for devising this ordinance safety for our

town’s culinary water, cross connections, and septic systems were of prime concern. Councilman Gary Weight

looked at a few ordinances already in place in other towns. He thought that Minnesota had an ordinance that

was very clear and covered safety issues. It mentioned fencing, pool covers, lighting, and other safety items. It

would be a good plan to study in devising an ordinance for our town.

Councilwoman Jaye Binkerd volunteered to take the information given tonight and to work on an

ordinance proposal for the Board to review in the next meeting in September. She would also email drafts of the

ordinance to the other board members before the next meeting for their perusal and suggestions.

The application that was submitted to the Town Council will fall under the current ordinance.

  1. Jim McCleary Update (Teancum road area)

Chairman Bunker gave an update on Jim McCleary’s application for adding a restroom and other

accessory items to an existing agricultural building. They did furnish the deed restriction, which has been

recorded, and the “Stop work” order has been rescinded.

  1. Administrative issues. Permits, fees, planning actions, etc.

The town has received an annexation notice from Charleston for the Bingelli gravel pit which is

currently in the County. It is important to stay in touch with Charleston, to know what is happening that might

also affect us. The question was asked and answered that if we want to oppose this annexation it would have to

go before a boundary commission. There is one area connected to the gravel pit that also connects to the town

of Daniel. Commissioner Hobbs will look into one area to see if it is a separate parcel that we might be able to

annex into Daniel. It is a small parcel that would help to protect the town’s rural atmosphere. He will report his

findings to the Planning Commission at the September meeting.

No agricultural permits were issued this past month.

Work is progressing on the big barn located on the south side of 3000 South.

  1. Approval of 16 June 2010 minutes / report on council actions

Commissioner Hobbs moved to approve the minutes of 16 June 2010 with Commissioner Weight

seconding. The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

One Council item that might be of interest is the Harry Wyendt property. Nothing has been happening

with this property so there is a question of whether or not to rezone it from commercial. The concept

development for the property has expired.

FYI: A letter will be going out this week that will deem a bldg non-agricultural. The owners will have to

come into compliance. If any action is taken on letters sent the Commission will be updated next month.

6- Motion to adjourn.

Commissioner Hobbs moved to adjourn the meeting with Commissioner Binkerd seconding. The vote

was unanimous and the motion carried.

Meeting adjourned at 8:05 p.m.

Secretary: Kathy-Jo Percy
