The meeting was held at the Parks & Recreation Building , 1965 West 500 South. Present : Rendell Mabey, Chair Virginia Walton George Allen Rick Graham Kevin Anderson Teresa Law Jules Dreyfous Grenville Roles Rex Kennedy Mark Stackhouse John Wennergren Steve Chindgren Clayton White Sheryl Gillilan Excused : 0 fl `' Ross Anderson Cindy White Gainor Bennett, Vice Chair John Gust Jim Ure Unexcused: Conrad Harrison The meeting was called to order by Rendell Mabey at 10 : 05 a.m. at which time he introduced Virginia Walton , a new member of the Board , and Sheryl Gillilan , the liaison for Mayor DePaulis. Rendell also explained that Rick Graham would be a few minutes late . ACCEPTANCE & CORRECTION OF MINUTES Jules Dreyfous motioned to accept the minutes of August 6 , 1986 and October 1, 1986 with one correction . In the October minutes , Bill Bailey should be changed to William Bahle. John Wennergren seconded the motion which passed unanimously, all Board members present voting "aye . " CURATOR' S REPORT Grenville handed out copies of the stock update list and reviewed it with the Board. He explained that the Aviary is preparing for winter and is putting some of the birds inside . He reported that a $1 ,500 cockatoo had been stolen from the Aviary. A report of the incident was aired on television in hopes that it may be found 1 and returned . Grenville handed out copies of the tree inventory prepared by Steve Schwab , City Urban Forester , and reviewed it with the Board . This report lists all the trees within the Aviary that need trimming , removal , etc . Cost estimates for the work listed totals $15 ,000 . Jules asked why the Aviary has to pay for the service . Rick explained that the Parks Department crews perform the work, but it probably wouldn' t get done for about two years. If the Aviary paid the cost, it could be put out to bid and performed by a private company within a short period of time . This project is one that needs some immediate attention because of some dangerous conditions and for aesthetic purposes. Grenville reported that he met with the Capital Improvements Committee. He thinks it is a good time to re-think the bird show while considering the amphitheater . Steve will need birds, employees, and money in order to increase the caliber of the show. John Wennergren requested having a written proposal to be prepared for the Board ' s review. George commented that he went to the last bird show of the year and he was highly impressed . George motioned to commend Steve Chindgren' s work and efforts for the birds show. He feels the birds show should be preserved and continued at all costs. Rex Kennedy seconded the motion which was open for discussion .- Steve commented that with a new facility, more should be invested into the bird show. He believes it could be performed more than one or two shows per week , possibly even three to four times per day. The motion passed, all Board members present voting "aye ." Steve will work out a budget request for the birds show to be presented to the Board . Kevin commented that the Capital Improvements Committee feels the purpose of having the amphitheater by the Children' s Garden is to have it segregated from the Aviary in order to have bird shows more often with minimal disruption to the Aviary during and after open hours. Money generated from the bird show should go towards enhancing the bird show. Rendell feels the show is a great service to the city. John suggested that the proposal to be prepared for the bird show include cost estimates as well as projections. Rick reported that he met with John Gust to discuss - the amphitheater . John was concerned about putting too much money into the facility. He wondered if the amphitheater is needed in comparison to some of the other improvements that need to be done at the Aviary. Also , he thought that if that much money was going to be put into the amphitheater that an admission charge should be implimented - are we ready to do that? John firmly supports the bird show and believes it is a great asset. Virginia Walton stated a strong objection to charging admission every day. She said the neighborhood surrounding Liberty Park is in a lower income bracket and many could not afford to pay and , 2 therefore, would not be able to enjoy the Aviary. She feels more vandalism would occur by keeping them out. Grenville suggested having a "free day. " ADMINISTRATIVE REPORT Rick reported that the reappointments of Clayton White , Gainor Bennett, Rendell Mabey, and Ross Anderson should go through without any problems. The Council has to approve the Mayor ' s recommendation . The Mayor ' s Office has to receive financial disclosure statements and a resume from those members before they can be reappointed . COMMITTEE REPORTS Capital Improvements. Rick and Kevin showed conceptual drawings showing the possibilities of having the amphitheater in the Children' s Garden area . Kevin Anderson motioned to accept the proposed location of the amphitheater by the service entrance and proceed with final drawings and with working to reduce the construction costs from $77 ,000 . Rex Kennedy seconded the motion which passed unanimously, all Board members present voting "aye." Propagation. Rex explained that Grenville covered this report in his. Public Relations. Mark reported that the committee had not met, but progress is being made with the flyer . OTHER BUSINESS A meeting will not be held in December . The next meeting will be held on January 7 , 1987 .

Tracy Avairy. 1. To improve the asethetics of the existing trees and the overall appreance of the Avairy. • 2. To improve the health, vigor and biological growth of the trees. • 3. To eliminate hazardous conditions (i.e. removal of dead limbs, poorly formed' limbs, etc. ) that now exist•,to both people and property within the Avairy grounds. 4 . To help reduce further damage and destruction to trees caused by wind, ice, and snow by eliminating poorly formed and weakly structured limbs. • 5. To allow for greater penetration of sunlight in the understory areas of the Avairy so new trees and other vegetation can more easily be established and grown. 6. To create greater diversity for planting with a variety of different tree species to replace those that are being removed. 7 . To take advantage of the recent construction which has provided access to certain areas within the Avairy for mechinized tree trimming equipment. Once construction is completed, this equipment will not be able to be used and therefore the cost to trim certain trees will be higher than if it were done now. 8. To have "specimen" trees (i.e. representative of species growth, shape, form etc. ) which could be identified and used in developing a "tree walk" tour within the Avairy grounds. ‘ii) Your Salt Lake City Parks & Recreation 1965 West 500 South Salt Lake City,Utah 84104 Telephone 801-972-7800 Steve Schwab Urban Forester 972-7818 972-7814 0 TRACY AVIARY/AMPHITHEATER 0 M V-C NORTH SCHEME SOUTH SCHEME UNIT UNIT COST TOTAL UNIT U/C TOTAL BUILDING (ENCLOSED) 680 35 $23800,00 12"X24" SEATING WALL 159 26 $4134.00 161 26 $4706,00 "RUBBLE" WEST WALL 50 20 $1000,00 10'X 12"D I A COL V- 7 350 $2450,00 VERT NETING 1/1. 500 1 .5 $750.00 HORIZ NETTING V 400 1 .5 r60 CAGE STRUCTURE €14-5 -•• EXCAVATION 100 30 $3000,00 DEMOLITION $500,00 -1 ($500.00) BRIDGE(20') _$2500.00 EXT LIGHTING 1 3500 $3500,00 2 3500 $7000.00 OUTLETS IAISC $1500.00 �J'Cj10 J EARTH BERMS 133 5 $665,00 LANDSCAPING $15000.00 FENCING/REFENCINC 160 16 $2560.00 - TOTAL $63899,00 $75105,00 GENERAL CONDITIONS 0,04 $2555,96 $3004.20 OVERHEAD 0,06 $3833.94 $4506,30 • PROFIT 0,04 $2555.96 $3004.20 BOND PREMIUM 0.01 $638,99 $751 .05 CONTINGENCY 0. 1 $6389,90 $7510,50 TOTAL $77317.79 $90877.05 DIFFERENCE $13559.26 11/4/86 411 Your It La a City (014 Parks&Recreation 1965 West 500 South Salt Lake City, Utah 84104 Telephone 801 972-7800 Palmer DePaulis, Mayor John Gust,Director of Parks January 26, 1987 RECEIVEr JAN 2 81987 Honorable Mayor Palmer DePaulis 300 City & County Building i`�i (i � � OFFICE Salt Lake City, Utah 84111 Dear Mayor DePaulis : Enclosed are the Tracy Aviary Advisory Board Minutes of November 5 , 1986 and January 7 , 1987 .
