Is the acre lot size figure what land in total was developed or actual lot size?
Stefanie Tugaw-Madsen
46:21
We can't do affordable housing with average acre lots.
Mitch Zundel
52:07
It seems to represent an average so you will probably have 5 acre lots with multi-family.
Bonnie’s iPhone
53:48
Does it make sense to do 5 acre lots when our tax structure would be better for citizens if we made 5.5 acre lots so 5 could be left in green belt.
Stefanie Tugaw-Madsen
55:34
Keep in mind to qualify for green belt they still have to have some sort of ag use.
Todd Miller
58:54
could we consider incentivizing growth in areas that are not currently irrigated farm use? so we don’t turn all our farms into housing...

Create Ag protection Areas
Todd Miller

I’m talking about large irrigated farms. corn, hay
Mitch Zundel
01:03:22
transfer of development rights...putting higher density in areas you want development...the developer pays the farmer for his/her development rights...so the farmer can make money...farmer retains ownership and can then sell the land for farm land. The developer can make more through the higher density and the city wins by having less pipes and roads to maintain.

01:05:50
Nibley City in Cache County is looking into transfer of development rights along with others around the state
Scott Lyons - Box Elder County
01:06:47
Bob, didn't Perry City adopt a PUD in order to preserve orchards?
Perry City - Bob Barnhill
01:11:14
We have implemented a Conservation Subdivision Ordinance to encourage the preservation of open space. It has not been utilized yet.
BRAG
01:17:37
I'll add that improving main streets and downtown areas in various communities seems to be a priority - particularly in Tremonton and Brigham City.
Stefanie Tugaw-Madsen
01:34:23
Growth will happen naturally as people want to part with their property. You can zone for continuity.
