plans continue in Nibley
February 6, 2009 | NIBLEY --The City Council discussed
various expansion plans that included moving recycle
bins and city ordinances in a council meeting Thursday.
One of the first items on the agenda was the discussion
of the green waste and cardboard recycle bins previously
placed on 3200 South. The council decided where the
bins will be placed after recent construction of the
Bill Saunders, public works director, proposed a plan
to place the bins on 400 W. 3200 South. The motion was
amended to include placing the bins on gravel instead
of asphalt, adding a block wall, and a light to make
it easier to see at night. By using rock materials instead
of asphalt, the council noted that the bins would be
easier to move again if they needed to. They also noted
the recycle facilities on Hyrum and Providence and said
they were good examples of what to have as an end result.
The amended motion passed unanimously.
Saunders said that once approved, the plan could "start
next week between storms" and by doing so would make
sure they were out of the way before beginning continued
construction on 3200 South.
Also on the agenda was the consideration of Ordinance
09-01, the land uses chart of permitted, non-permitted
and conditional uses which is a chart of zoned areas
in Nibley. The plan details the types of zones and what
type of development is permitted on them.
"It's a design tool," said Councilman Larry Jacobsen.
"Our current ordinance is open to any proposal." The
motion to pass 09-01 carried unanimously.
There was also a public hearing on 09-02, an ordinance
which states the design standards for commercial and
institutional uses in Nibley. Mark Morris, from the
Salt Lake City-based architectural design firm Cooper
Roberts Simonsen Associates, presented a plan that was
briefly reviewed. It was decided that the official review
and further discussion would be held March 5 due to
the absence of Mayor Gerald Knight at the meeting.
