5. CEU/ASCEU-Safety Issues with Streets and Crosswalks on 300 E. and 400 North in Price
The ASCEU Leadership representatives were Benjamin Waldon and Mike Ramstetter. The
ASCEU was well represented to discuss with the City Council the recent
accidents involving pedestrians and vehicles surrounding the area of 300 E. and
400 N. near CEU. The group would like to create a companionship between CEU,
the community and the City Council regarding safety on the roads. The crosswalks, lighting and streets need to
all be evaluated for the safety of pedestrians crossing the roads. The ASCEU
group will be distributing safety information throughout the College Campus in
order to educate the college students on using crosswalks appropriately and not
jaywalking. The safety behavior among
the students and public needs to be reevaluated and taught consistently. Surveys
are now being conducted at CEU with students to see how many are using the
provided crosswalks. The group feels that the streets are poorly lit at night,
making crossing the street very dangerous. CEU has only one officer to do the
patrol for the campus and surrounding property.
Mr. Waldon would hope that CEU and Price City
Police Officers could work together to enforce the crosswalk rules, jaywalking
and speeding on the roads where students from all schools are using on a daily
basis. The Mayor and Council appreciated this discussion to find ways to make
the city streets safer. It seems that drivers are not paying attention to
crosswalks and the speed zones around the college and also around town. The
students are not paying attention to how they cross the streets and are
jaywalking on a regular basis or using their electronic devices while crossing
the streets. The City Council likes the education aspect and will work with the
Police Department on enforcement. Mr. Waldon would
like to see CEU Police ticket the jaywalkers and Price City Police to give
speeding tickets. The enforcement would grab the attention of the High School
students speeding down 400 North. This effort would
protect all students coming not only from CEU, but from the Junior High and
High School. Councilmember McEvoy
suggests having the ASCEU students possibly speaking to Carbon High students at
an activity or assembly as role models and peers. The City Council would much rather see
education rather than enforcement. Jan Young, works at
CEU and has noticed the crosswalks are much wider on 300 East than they are on 400
North. People may not realize the crosswalks are there and
6. CARBON RECREATION-Funding Request
Steve Christensen presented this request for funding
for the Carbon County Recreation. The department is always looking for ways to
make Carbon Recreation better. More money is necessary to continue with the
programs that are in progress and for the programs the department is trying to
7. MAINSTREET PROGRAM UPDATE-Nancy Cammans
Nancy Cammans presented an update for the Mainstreet Program. The Business Expansion (BEAR) survey program is a great tool of information on local businesses and is very useful in evaluating their needs.
The Historic District is coming along quite well. The businesses are being visited to learn the history of the buildings they are in. The boundaries as to where the district will be are in question and will be decided with time and evaluation of the area. Some of the local building owners are interested in updating their buildings for use. The use of space in these older downtown buildings would be great for growth and integrity of the area.
The Downtown Alive events held are doing well and bringing business to those participating in the events. The events provide businesses with exposure and an increase in income for the month of participation. Next year events are being scheduled. Parking is always limited for Mainstreet but there were approximately 800 people participated that entered drawings which demonstrates the fact that citizens are drawn to the events.
Spooktacular is coming and will be a great event as it is expanding
to two streets this year. Safety will always be an issue and the concerns are
8. PRICE COMMUNITY CENTER-Clarification and Establishment of Lease Rates
