MAIN STREET REVITALIZATION COMMITTEE PRESENTATION

Councilwoman Smith gave the background and update on the research that the Main Street Revitalization Committee has done. Paul Allred, Community Development Director has worked closely with this committee and gave a presentation of some of the recommendations from the committee.

Mr. Allred explained that the first and most important issue discussed by the committee was the traffic on Main Street. It is the committee’s recommendation that the speed limit on Main Street should be lowered from 40 mph to 30 or 35 mph. It is the committee’s goal to make Main Street a more walkable and pedestrian friendly place. Some of the recommendations they made to accomplish this include wider sidewalks, clearly marked crosswalks, and the addition of aesthetic and landscape features to improve the overall appearance of Main Street. The Planning Commission and City Council discussed various other issues that will impact the future development of Main Street, including the location of light rail. The committee also expressed the desire to protect the historic buildings along Main Street to preserve the rural feel of the community. It was also suggested by the committee that some of the heavier uses currently allowed on Main Street (i.e., repair shops, car lots, or uses that require a lot of storage, etc.) should be phased out over time. Mayor Deamer thanked the Main Street Revitalization Committee for their presentation and suggested that the Council and Planning Commission consider these recommendations and staff will make a determination as to UDOT’s jurisdiction and any agreements that obligate the City to maintain the crosswalks and signage on Main Street. It was the Council’s general consensus to wait until later in the spring to consider/implement the other improvements that were suggested by the Committee.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:00 p.m.
