Two New Subdivisions, Trails Go Before Council


The Payson Town Council, in its Thursday night meeting, will look at two new subdivisions.

The two are the preliminary plat for the McLane Park Subdivision and a first-reading ordinance that would rezone certain real property at 2009 N. McLane Road.

The McLane Park Subdivision, which involves 14 lots, was postponed from the Jan. 4 meeting to Thursday.

The Payson Planning and Zoning commission voted in November to recommend approval to the council.

The town has listed 14 stipulations that the developer must follow.

The application on the proposed ordinance to amend the official zoning map for the town was made by property owner Terra Capital to the planning and zoning commission and the town council.

The proposed ordinance lists nine stipulations that need to be followed, including that the property in question shall not exceed 26 lots and 63 condominiums.

The town council Thursday night will also discuss possibly approving the adoption of the Payson Area Trails System, formerly referred to in its planning stages as the Community Trails Network.

The proposal is a 2007 version and implementation of the original trails master plan that was completed in 1998.

It would incorporate the firebreak around Payson that Councilor Andy Romance recommended, but does not include uniformity.

In the council decision request from Parks and Recreation Coordinator Mary McMullen said the PATS draft map and proposal provides the framework for involved town departments, including the council, the U.S Forest Service and land developers to incorporate multi-use trail development in the town and out of town limits.

The council meeting is at 5:30 p.m. in the Town Hall Chambers, 303 N. Beeline Highway.
