Update on the Alpine Cove Annexation


The Alpine City Council approved the annexation of the Alpine Cove subdivision, which is located west of the rodeo grounds.


Last year, the city received an annexation petition from residents in the 76.21-acre subdivision that contains 62 lots. The subdivision had previously been excluded from the city's annexation plan because not enough residents were supportive of being annexed into the city. Since that time, the number of residents in favor of annexation increased. The petition met the state law of fifty percent of the property value and a majority of the households. After the petition Alpine City Amended the Alpine City Annexation Policy Statement. On Feb. 14, the city council approved changes to the city's annexation plan which allows the petition to move forward.


The City Council voted to annex the Cove on the 25th of July 2017. Mayor Wimmer worked with the Utah County Commissioners to complete the annexation document. He signed the final agreement and the County Commission approved and signed it today.


Where do we go from here? Alpine City finalizes the necessary paper work and plats. It goes to the State of Utah for final approval and then they return it to Alpine City. The plat can then be recorded with the county.


Welcome Alpine Cove!

2017 WATER MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

Alpine City will continue to implement a water management plan for 2017.  The overall water use has gone down over the last few years since this policy has been in effect and the landscape looks great. This plan will continue to allow the City to keep the cost of service low.  The following water schedule will be included as part of the plan beginning April 17, 2017:

  • Residential Users:   Use of irrigation water will be allowed three days per week.  Odd numbered addresses will water on Monday, Wednesday & Friday.  Even numbered addresses will water on Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday.  The time period allowed for residential water use will be from 7 pm on the scheduled day for watering until 7 am the following day.  This does not mean that residents should water for a 12 hour time period, but rather a reasonable amount of water can be used during this time period sufficient to provide for the needs of their landscaping.  Smaller 1/4 acre lots should irrigate less hours than larger 1 acre lots.
  • City Parks and other Large Water Users (schools, churches, etc.):   The City will coordinate a plan for irrigation of the parks and large water users.  The plan will require watering during the day to balance the use in the system.  Some parks will be watered less frequently than others.
  • Agricultural Users:   Alpine City will coordinate with the Alpine Irrigation Company and the agricultural users to implement a water management program.
  • Enforcement:        

              -  First Offense:  Warning.
              -  Second Offense:  $50 fine, payment required to have PI valve unlocked.
              -  Third and Future Offenses:  $200 fine, payment required to have PI valve unlocked.

FEMA TO ISSUE NEW FLOOD INSURANCE MAP (FIRM)

FEMA PROPOSED FIRM - HERE
ALPINE EDITED MAP - HERE
OUT AS SHOWN INFORMATIOM - HERE

Legal Notice 67770 Published in The Daily Herald march 8, 15, 2016.

Proposed Flood Hazard Determinations for the City of Alpine, Utah County, Utah, and Case No. 16-08-0236P. The Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) solicits technical information or comments on proposed flood hazard determinations for the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), and where applicable, the Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report for your community. These flood hazard determinations may include the addition or modification of Base Flood Elevations, base flood depths, Special Flood Hazard Area boundaries or zone designations, or the regulatory floodway.

The FIRM and, if applicable, the FIS report have been revised to reflect these flood hazard determinations through issuance of a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR), in accordance with Title 44, Part 65 of the Code of Federal Regulations. These determinations are the basis for the floodplain management measures that your community is required to adopt or show evidence of having in effect to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program. For more information on the proposed flood hazard determinations and information on the statutory 90-day period provided for appeals, please visit FEMA’s website at www.fema.gov/plan/prevent/fhm/bfe, or call the FEMA Map Information eXchange (FMIX) toll free at 1-877-FEMA MAP (1-877-336-2627).

ALPINE CEMETERY UPDATE

On February 23, 2016 the Alpine City Council approved the following items as related to the Alpine Cemetery:

1.To place a moratorium on the sale of plots in the Alpine Cemetery.  The only exception is if there is a death in the family of an Alpine resident.  In that case the family will be allowed to purchase up to three (3) plots.

Alpine has a little over one hundred (100) plots left in the Cemetery.  The City is averaging sales of between sixty (60) to seventy (70) plots a year, after taking into account plot buy backs.  If this rate of sales continues the City will run out of Cemetery plots in a short while.

2.To enforce a strict interpretation on fees related to operations at the Cemetery.  To get the Alpine City resident fee rate the person who has passed away must have been an actual resident of Alpine at the time of passing.

3.To initiate an aggressive buy back program of previously purchased plots. If you would like to sell back your plots or know of anyone who has plots that they do not need, please contact the City.  The City will buy back your plots at $985.00 a plot.

4.To issue an RFP for a comprehensive design of the Cemetery, with a focus on the north end of the Cemetery.  The City will shortly issue a request for proposals to engage a design firm to develop a comprehensive plan for the Cemetery.  The City will focus its development efforts on the north side of the Cemetery.  This will also include work on 600 North street.

ACCESSORY APARTMENTS 101

Purpose: The purpose of the Accessory Apartment Ordinance is twofold:

1.  To allow homeowners to rent part of their homes to others safely and legally.

2.  To keep illegal duplexes from covering the City and lowering the property values of everyone who lives in the City.

How does it work:

1.  You fix up a part of your home to rent to someone (it helps to call the City first).

2.  You call the City to register your apartment.

3.  The City sends out a building inspector to make sure it is safe.

4.  You pay $50 and you are off and running.

5.  You pay your fee each year and continue to rent your space out.

How does it NOT work:

1.  You can't rent out both the top and bottom of your home and then go live in American Fork.  You have to live in your home to rent part of it out.

2.  You can't just rent out part of your home out without registering with the City.

3.  If you rent it and don't register it then you could be fined.

4.  Worse,  something bad happens while you are renting it out illegally and you get both fined and sued.  Not a good idea, just register.
