Highlights of the meeting include…

Item F, PGP auto show. Parriott’s Garage is proposing a new auto show to be held at the Old Spanish Trail Arena. Commissioners generally liked the fact that it was a locally run event, but worried that the event could be too loud and disruptive. Eventually the special event permit was approved (6-1, Stock opposed), but the GCC made it clear that in future years the event would only be approved if it did not generate too many complaints of excessive noise.

Item L, Bypass resolution. This resolution is similar to one that Moab City passed at the last city council meeting. It calls on UDOT to remove a bypass from its project list and expresses an intention to collaborate with Moab City in investigating other ways to create pedestrian-friendly areas downtown.

Items X, Y, Z, public hearings on noise abatement measures. The GCC is considering (1) updating Grand County’s noise ordinance to better address motor vehicle noise, and (2) amending the Land Use Code to regulate noise from UTV rental and guide businesses. This meeting included the public hearings. The next steps will be a GCC Noise workshop (April 13, 1PM) and a special meeting to vote on ordinances (April 15, 8:30AM) in order to comply with statutory deadline of April 18.
