DANIEL TOWN PLANNING
THE DANIEL TOWN PLANNING WILL HOLD THE MONTHLY MEETING
AND PUBLIC HEARING ON JANUARY 20TH 2010, AT THE COUNTY
COMMUNITY SERVICE BUILDING AT 55 SOUTH 500 EAST HEBER CITY
UTAH. IN THE NORTH CONF. ROOM # 132 AT 7:00 P.M.
Quorum: Eric Bunker, Ed Pressgrove, Kim Norris, Jaye Binkerd, Gary Weight, Lynn
Crisler and Barry Hobbs were absent.
Ryan Taylor of epic engineering was present.
Public members signing in: Darwin McGuire
Chairman Bunker called the meeting to order at 7:05 p.m.
Public comment (2 minutes please)
Eric told the Board that he would email information to each board member about
some training that was coming in February from League of Cities and Towns.
Gary Weight commented that Florida is making a change to their laws that any
requests for subdivision changes have to go out to the public for election. They provide
information to the public about the proposed changes and the public votes on whether or
not to make the changes. He feels that we might look at doing the same thing.
1- Welcome new members to Planning Commission.
We welcome Jaye Binkerd, who was appointed by the Town Council at their last
council meeting, to the Planning Board. A letter of appreciation was sent to Diane Grose
for her years of service on the Planning Commission.
2- FEMA- John Crofts (Utah NFIP Coordinator)
Eric Bunker explained what this item is about as John Crofts did not make
it to the meeting tonight. John Crofts is with the National Flood Insurance Program of
Utah under FEMA. He wants the Town to adopt the new flood plain map. The Board
recommends that this item be tabled for one month as they did not receive the forwarded
email showing the map and information about the new flood plain. Gary wondered if the
town should hold public meeting or at least get on the agenda to notify the public.
Maybe it would be better to put the information on the town website for public
viewing instead of holding a public meeting. The decision was made to put it on the town
website for public viewing.
3- Recommendation of Resolution for flood plain to Town Council
Kim Norris moved to table this till next month with Gary Weight seconding. The
vote was unanimous and the motion carried.
4- Callister subdivision
Ryan gave an update on the Callister subdivision saying that it was approved by
all the town officials. They are putting a couple of deeds together before it can be
recorded as the County recorder has asked that they specify who will own which lot after
which it can be recorded. The building permit is still pending as they received comments
on a letter sent and they need to respond to those comments. The comments made were
about the listing of lots 1, 2, and 3 having no specified owners per lot. The Callisters will
deed all the lots to one person and that person will deed lots 2 and 3 back to the siblings which will create a paper trial of who is the “Record of Owner”.
5- Approval of minutes/ report on council action
Gary Weight moved to approve the minutes for 18 November 2009 with Jaye
Binkerd seconding. The vote was unanimous and the motion passed. (FYI: There was no meeting in December.)
The Council adopted a resolution regarding Grama request that outlines that any
documentation requested by anyone from the town will have to be submitted to the
recorder by certified mail or hand delivered. The documentation requested must be
delivered with 10 days or a good reason provided as to why it could not be delivered
within the 10 days. Any documentation that a public entity generates can be requested
through Grama. In the town’s case most of the official papers are on our website and can be accessed there
6- Administrative issues: Administrative Building permits, water, open seats on
various boards, etc.
Gregory Belt requested a rebuild letter from the Planning Board. Eric Bunker
handled this administratively denying Greg’s request. He sent a letter to Greg listing eight
reasons for the denial. He read the eight reasons to the board members. It is the planners’
policy to never issue rebuilds permits. Greg can now go to the Board of Adjustments if he wishes to appeal this decision.
No permits were issued since our last meeting.
There is an open seat on Board of Adjustments. Lance Turner’s spot is open as he
is now on the Town Council. The appeals time to the BOA has been shortened.
7- Motion to adjourn.
Kim Norris moved to adjourn the meeting with Gary Weight seconding. The vote
was unanimous and the meeting was adjourned at 7:35 p.m.
Daniel Planning reserves the right to change order of, and add agenda items.
In keeping with the American Disability Act all are invited to attend.
