Absent from the Transportation Advisory Board was John Beener. Also present were: Amy Lyons, Becka Roolf and Megan DePaulis. The meeting, held at the Transportation Division Office, 349 South 200 East, Salt Lake City, Utah, was called to order at 4:01 p.m. by Courtney Reeser. Welcome and Introduction of Guests — Courtney welcomed everyone, there were no guests. Public Comment — There were no members of the public. Motion: Ellen Reddick moved to approve the minutes of the March 4, 2019 meeting. Dave Alderman seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously. Report Out TAB Members Joshua said the BAC is supportive of better coordination with TAB which will be discussed in an agenda item later in the meeting. Ellen is going to meet with the SLCPD about reframing the way they report auto/pedestrian accidents. She feels they should be more specific about who was at fault and why as there seem to be a lot of accidents caused by vehicles going around other vehicles already stopped for pedestrians or pedestrians not in crosswalks. Paul said there have been some challenges with Mountain View and Glendale and the Community Center in that area. They are building a turnabout driveway so parents can drop children off and they are hoping having that additional drop off will help get the children there safely before and after school. Courtney asked if the road diet in that area has helped and Paul said it has not. He said Meadowlark and Edison Elementary Schools will be completed this summer and open this fall. Matt said UTA is planning to build several mixed use developments and their Board recently took action to choose three more sites one of which includes a 20 acre parcel in the salt lake central and north central area. He is excited to work with SLC to get approvals for this development which will breathe new life into the central station. Suzanne asked if UTA has considered using any of their surplus properties for park and rides. Matt said there are park and rides at most of these sites and they will look to see if parking demands will be met with their new developments. Suzanne noticed on her way to the TAB meeting as she passed Dilworth Elementary that there was not a single bike but there were about 5o razor scooters. In a way that's better for the kids as they don't need to worry about theft but she was disappointed that there weren't any future bicyclists. She was pleased to see how the Division responded to the citizens who were Page 1 of 2 TAB 04-01-2019 Minutes upset on 2700 South. Jon said there will be bike lanes in both directions and parking will be removed from the north side. Courtney said she had an inquiry about traffic signal synchronization again. Jon said they just finished an i8 month study and worked closely with UDOT to re-time the signals downtown and other major corridors. Courtney said another thing that was asked is if as they rebuild schools, could traffic calming be a part of that conversation. Jon and Paul agreed that could be done and are going to meet about it. Open Meeting Law Training Megan DePaulis, SLC Attorney's Office Megan DePaulis from the City Attorney's office gave the Board their annually required open meeting law training.

She went over ideas for better communication including referring topics for review back and forth. She gave examples of actions BAC has taken in support of projects and suggested a joint annual meeting. Courtney went over a Bob's rules of order handout which was also given to BAC.
