Kanab City Council addresses two-family residences
The Kanab City Council at their meeting Feb. 13 passed Ordinance 2-1-18 O, which addressed the requirements for future two-family residences in Kanab. The most restrictive language in the ordinance specified that the dwelling could not exceed 50% of the lot size; it must have an approved design; be landscaped in the front before occupancy; and both sides of the duplex must be connected to city water and sewer lines separately.
The council also voted to allow Jeff Allen’s proposal for a 42-site RV park to proceed. The park will be located in a C-2 zone at 584 E. 300 S. on three plus acres and have water, sewer and electricity at each site.
Approval for City Manager Joe Decker to proceed with an application to the Utah Community Impact Board for $850,000 in a grant/loan arrangement to expand and make other improvements to the Kanab Fire Station on Hwy 89A, along with soil remediation, was granted by the council. The request would be for a $600,000 loan at a 1% interest rate over 15 years and $250,000 in grant money.
Pending expectant FAA funding of 90.2% of the cost, with the city and county each contributing 4.9%, the bid by Staker Parson Companies (doing business as Western Rock Products) of $1,813,031 to resurface runway 1/19 at the Kanab Airport, including the apron, was accepted by the council.
The city’s portion will come from the Capital Projects Fund, which is routinely funded for these contingencies. The bid was about $200,000 less than what was estimated.
Lisa Livingston was appointed to the Kanab Library Board for a term ending 12-31-2020.
