- Daniel Town Impact Fee Analysis
The Impact Fees for new units within the town of Daniel match those used by units built in the unincorporated areas of the county. The prospective builder in Daniel will pay both town and county impact fees which consist of power provided by Heber Light & Power or Rocky Mountain Power, water (unless on well) provided by Daniel Domestic, Twin Creeks, etc, sewer (unless on septic or commercial or industrial) provided by HVSSD or JSSD, and gas (unless on propane) provided by Questar. The Town Council would handle any special cases that might arise; i.e. hardship cases, big commercial entities, etc. The County is receiving all impact fees now until this analysis is voted on and passed at which time the Town then receives the impact fees associated with the town. The fees can be adjusted as needed. Diane Grose moved that the town council accept the Daniel Town Impact Fees as shown on page two (noted above) of the packet. Council member Gary Weight seconded the motion and the Council voted unanimously on the motion. Motion carried.
- The Daniel Town General Plan was looked at and discussed. Do we need any changes or updates? The council members asked to have this item put on next month’s agenda allowing them time to study the plan in depth and form opinions of any changes and/or additions they feel might be necessary. The suggestion was made to keep it as brief as possible while still covering all contingencies.
- Daniel Town Land Use Plan, report on wind turbines ordinance.
The Planning Commission members have been asked to look over the Land Use Plan and bring any suggestions they might have for changes and/or additions to the next regularly scheduled meeting in March. We do not need to have a public hearing on this plan as it is in-house only.
Jim McCleary was asked by the Town Council to come before the Planning Commission and present his idea on an alternate power source he wished to use on his property. Mr. McCleary passed out pamphlets and pictures to those present depicting a wind turbine for home use. The unit would plug directly into his house with safety passes. The town has been asked to look at alternative sources of power, becoming “more green”. The idea of using wind turbines was not favorably received as the members were concerned with the visual aesthetics of our town. Gary Weight suggested looking at other sources such as solar. Also, that the council members study economical analysis of various ways of “going green” and bring their ideas and opinions to the next meeting. We will need to have a public hearing over any alternative power sources anyone in the town wishes to use. Mr. Bunker will let the Town Council know we are pursuing this.
