allows rural water tanks to act as emergency water
sources for the Snowflake, Taylor and Cedar Hills Fire
Departments. This can greatly reduce the distance that

Standard 2.5" male "fire hose" threads, exactly like
a regular fire hydrant.

on areas where we actually have an impact.

Larry Hildebrand brought up that it was important
to determine whether the county will be responsive

create it.  Perhaps we need to look at the issue
from a state level to see if it is possible to make
community plans more binding upon the county.

Library, NPC Library and Cedar Hills Country Store.

The meeting was called to order by Joanie Sawyer.
The committee member total stands at 12.  A quorum
was reached with 7 of the 12 Committee Members present.

Announcements:

Christen Warwick announced that Barbara O'Lear,
Snowflake/Taylor chapter of the Humane Society,
would appreciate clean aluminum cans, preferably
in large sacks, to be left at the Office Market,
410 South Main Street in Snowflake for the benefit
of Humane Society projects.

Susan Molloy announced that a meeting will be held
in the Community Education Room at the Holbrook Campus
of NPC concerning the West Nile Virus at 2 pm on
August 26, 2002.

Larry Hildebrand announced that in the last month the
county has made some effort towards rumble strips on
the curve near Hay Hollow Wash; however, Larry will
send a letter to Bill Cox with the concern that what
has been done may not be effective.

Margaret Mayer suggested a bike track for children
as a possible addition to ideas for parks and recreation
for the area.

Susan Molloy announced that she discussed, with
Paul Jaster, Emergency Services and J.R. DeSpain,
Board of Supervisors, the issue of chemical sensitivity.

Susan Molloy announced that she and Jack Rice have
verified that Snowflake/Taylor Fire Department has no
obligation to help Cedar Hills with fires. There is
insufficient assessed value here for a fire district
and it is highly unlikely that we could qualify for
a fire district. The next fire department meeting will
be held on September 4, 2002 at the CHHC. They are
checking to see if funding is available through Homeland
Securities.  An ambulance and fire truck and a small sub
station for a first-responder truck with 500 gallons of
water may be an option.  You may call 536-3858 for more
information.

MINUTES:

Joanne Thompson read the minutes of the August 5 meeting.

[MOTION] by Larry Hildebrand to accept the minutes of
August 5, 2002 as read. Seconded by Kevin Dunn.
Passed unanimously.

Report by Committee #1, Water, General Information,
Education and Utilities:

Joanne Thompson spoke in Carol Snyder's absence,
reading minutes of the committee meeting held on
August 19, 2002. The mainly road-related issues
applied to Committee #2 and a copy of the minutes
was given to Larry Hildebrand.

Christen Warwick has been doing research on water
level and quality dating back as far as 1950 in an
effort to find a baseline to work with.

Committee #2, Land Use, Economic Development,
Transportation, General Government and Tax Issues:

Larry Hildebrand summarized four key points in his
report of the Subcommittee 2 meeting of August 14, 2002:

1) Some of the issues identified as elements for
inclusion on the Plan may be beyond the scope of
what the committee can hope to accomplish in terms
of time and energy. We may wish to make a general
statement regarding the issue, and assign a special
committee to continue working on the issue.

2) Some issues and responsibilities rightfully
fall under the responsibilities of a property
owners association, or other community organization.

3) In some cases, we may desire to include an element
in the plan that is contrary to existing County
ordinances or State statutes. In such cases, it
may be useful to suggest, within the plan, that
the county support or enact legislation to affect
existing law or create new laws to reflect our
desires.

4) The "Primitive Road Program" is a well-
intentioned program with less than satisfactory
results. Committee may need to host a public
meeting focused solely on issues of the dirt
roads.

Committee #3, Environment, Cattle Grazing, Health
& Safety, Social Services and Facilities:

Kevin Dunn reported on the meeting of August 14
concerning safety issues.  He mentioned the problem
with a fire department being unable to save homes
and suggested possibility of informational handouts
for homeowners.  He will procure information from a
fire department concerning this.

It was suggested that the Community Plan should begin
the drafting stage and that subcommittees meet twice
during the month.

[MOTION] by Joanne Thompson to set Monday, September 23,
2002 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Cedar Hills Health
Center for the next meeting, and to adjourn the meeting.
Seconded by Kevin Dunn. Motion passed unanimously.

Respectfully submitted,
