City Council Announcements

February 4, 2003



A. Decisions, Feedback & Information needed by staff


1. Property Conveyances (7): Does the Council wish to hold any hearings?

No hearings were requested


      a. Salt Lake City will provide a conservation easement to be placed on property close to Little Dell Reservoir (7971 E Parley’s Canyon).  This perpetual conservation easement is part of required mitigation relating to the Little Dell project. 


      b. UDOT is constructing an interchange on I-15 at 12300 South.  In connection with this project, UDOT will purchase City property to widen a bridge over the Jordan and Salt Lake Canal.  Compensation to Salt Lake City is yet to be determined by appraisals.  No impact or opposition is noted. 


      c. The City and UP&L have made agreement for access to the canal and adjacent property. Do to UDOT’s construction of the interchange at 12300 South both the City and UP&L lost access to canal and/or maintenance areas.


      d. A petitioner has requested that Salt Lake City re-sign an easement given to the previous owner for a waterline from a spring source in Emigration Canyon (7108 E Killyons Canyon).  The previous owner did not record the original easement.  The waterline is intact; this is just re-issuing of a document to formalize the existing easement. 


      e. Chevron Pipeline is relocating several oil distribution lines. This amendment allows abandonment of old lines “per current industry standards” and for new lines to be located within an existing county roadway. “The conveyance is preferable to existing alignment since the new alignment will… involve LESS impact on watershed.”


      f. Fourels Investment Company requested to relocate part of the East Jordan Canal Extension which currently bisects property that they wish to develop. 1400 E Fort Union Blvd. Compensation is exchange of fee title for canal relocation.


      g. An interstate telecommunication cable was installed by companies that hold franchises or leases with the City between the mouth of Emigration Canyon and 3500 West 500 South.  TouchAmerica is now participating in this telecommunication system.  The Administration desires to grant a right-of-way lease to TouchAmerica in exchange for lease payments which as a minimum will be $5,000 annually.
