We have already had a recent incident over the 4th of July where a speeding vehicle hit a parked car and tried to flee the scene.Enough is enough.The only other recourse is the neighborhood taking matters into their own hands which means I will be sitting vigil and using my own measures to reduce 8/12/202115:21 Lori Dalton traffic and speed.Lori Dalton CIP FY2021 12:38 PM 8/17/2021 Page 1 Public Comments 08.11.2021-08.17.2021 Date/Time Opened Contact Name Comment Greetings:Today(August 7)I hiked a loop of the trail network,both old and new trails,from the top of Terrace Hills Drive.I was particularly interested in seeing the effects of last weekend's deluge on the trails.I was gratified to see that there was NO EROSION AT ALL ON THE NEW TRAILS!So kudos to the constructor!The older trails are a mixed bag.The old road from the top of Terrace Hills to City Creek Saddle has a berm(a raised ridge of dirt above the road surface)on the downhill side of the road,as would be left by a bulldozer.As a result runoff cannot go over the side so is channeled down the road,leading to major erosion gullies.The city built some water bars across the lower part of the road,and they helped,but there are no water bars across the upper part and consequently there was more erosion.In my opinion it will be necessary to remove the berm to prevent channeling.The network of steep social trails in the area has badly eroded.No surprise there.In certain places,the old Bonneville Shoreline Trail has developed a berm that channels rain down the center of the trail.I don't know,but would guess,that this berm developed over years of heavy use in all weather.Last summer,on my trail runs,I noticed your trail constructor cutting gaps in the berm on the section of trail between City Creek Saddle and Dry Gulch(I thanked him for doing this).This needs to be done in a few more places.I noticed that the new trails were constructed without a berm,which might be 8/12/202117:48 Walt Haas one reason there was no erosion on them.I hope this feedback is useful.--Walt Foothills Trail System 12:38 PM 8/17/2021 Page 2 Public Comments 08.11.2021-08.17.2021 Date/Time Opened Contact Name Comment To the City Council,We live on East Capitol Boulevard(ECB)just above the Capitol.We're sending this email regarding the noise,speeding and general vehicle mayhem that occurs on ECB.It's been a problem for a while but the situation has deteriorated over the last Covid year and since the Capitol Building parking area has become a collecting and cruising area on many evenings.ECB is a wide, climbing street with no traffic lights or stop signs;it has become a street of choice for evening cruisers who like to blast their way up,loop through the neighborhood and then backfire their way down;it's speed and noise the whole way.Stationing a patrol car sporadically has been tried and not been a deterrent;stationing a full time patrol car is not feasible.Raised crosswalks and stop signs will be a real help,as they have been for the exact same conditions on 11th and 2nd Ayes.The mitigation on the Avenues has been in place for years and has proven effective without impacting city services(fire, plowing,etc.).Please,before the problem gets worse or there is a person injured one night(some of the boulevard doesn't have sidewalks),find some funds for this fairly uncomplicated solution.Thank 8/12/2021 22:16 Dennis Glass you,Dennis Glass Susan Corth CIP FY2021 Hello Council,I am contacting you regarding the capitol improvement program.We believe strongly that not only improving the infrastructure of the building is important but improving the security of the building as well.My company has a very unique ballistic shield that can be folded down to the size of a laptop and carried in a bag while still giving you over 5sgft of ballistic protection when deployed.The shield is very light,only weighing 81bs which is a game changer compared to a regular shield that weighs upwards of 801bs.Our shields are currently being used in courthouses,hospitals, and by police departments throughout the state.We are a local company(West Temple to be exact) and would love to help protect the people who lead our awesome state as well as the awesome people who protect them.We would love to get this product in front of the Council and are requesting a short time to present our product on the 17th.Please let me know what is required or how much time we will have so that we can be as prepared as possible.I look forward to hearing 8/12/2021 22:31 Tyson lex from you soon.Best regards,Tyson lex CIP FY2021 12:38 PM 8/17/2021 Page 3 Public Comments 08.11.2021-08.17.2021 Date/Time Opened Contact Name Comment Speeding vehicles on East Capitol Boulevard are a growing threat to public safety.Noise associated with speeding and mufflerless vehicles disrupts the community at all hours of the day and night.

Years of temporary measures,such as flashing speed trailers or occasional police presence,have failed to solve the problem.Painted lines in the roadway(which we were informed by Chris Wharton were supposed to slow traffic)have only exacerbated the problem,giving the impression that this is not a residential neighborhood,but rather,it is a"Speedway"where you can go as fast as you'd like. We have seen cars top 100 miles per hour with crowds of young people cheering them on.Many of the cars clearly have noise-increasing mechanics,given the decibels recorded by the news recently. Obviously,this is a known issue,and young people are taking advantage of the problem,especially on weekend nights,when the police are otherwise occupied.Again,this is a huge safety issue,with young,inexperienced drivers racing without concern about other traffic or individuals on the road,let alone the safety of the ones in the reckless cars.Traffic calming devices,such as raised crosswalks, can have a permanent impact on East Capitol Boulevard,as they have elsewhere in the city(such as 15th East and 11th Avenue).We do NOT need more traffic studies or a supposed expanded police presence.We DO NEED physical structures to prevent speeding.This is the only way to stop this.The word is out that this is the place to speed and race.It is beyond ridiculous,and behooves the City to prevent any type of tragic situation,given the notice it has already received for years.As an attorney, I would not want to defend that case.Please put raised crosswalks on East Capitol Boulevard 8/12/2021 22:49 Cheryl Mori immediately!Thank you,Cher Mori and Chris Warner East Capitol Blvd. CIP FY2021 12:38 PM 8/17/2021 Page 5 Public Comments 08.11.2021-08.17.2021 Date/Time Opened Contact Name Comment We have lived on East Capitol Blvd for 6 years.We have noticed an increase in speeding vehicles as well as noise associated with acceleration at the curve of our address every year since our move to SLC.We did speak with the traffic engineer and as a result,flashing speed trailers were placed on both sides of the street around our address.Sometimes the flashing speed on the trailer seemed to bring attention,other times,not at all.As soon as the trailers were removed,speeding and noise resumed as before.Traffic calming devices such as raised crosswalks,especially in areas especially prone to acceleration on this wide blvd could have a positive and permanent impact on East Capitol. We have noticed them in other parts of the city in residential areas.What we don't need are further studies to count cars or track noise levels,but rather physical structures such as raised sidewalks to prevent speeding.We would add that we experienced one speeding car land in the median in front of our home when it missed the curve at 988 North;our neighbors to the north both experienced cars in their median and or yard.The most recent car in the median caught on fire and hit a tree which caught fire and burned until it was completely consumed.Please consider this important safety 8/16/2021 22:47 Rg KASER intervention.Richard and Sidney Kaser CIP FY2021 I am writing in support of the Foothills Master Plan.Salt Lake City is an amazing area with tremendous access to trails.However,with the growing population of SLC,the pressure on existing trails is only going to increase.I am a resident of Federal Heights and use the Foothills area above the Avenues 4-5 days per week for both hiking and mountain biking.I urge you to support the Foothills Master Plan and reverse the moratorium.While not everything within the plan is exactly what I want, that is the nature of compromise.The directional trails(eg hiking and mountain bike uphill only)that have been implemented have substantially decreased negative interactions between trail users.I know that there is concern about erosion with new trails,but I was on the trails right after the heavy rains a couple weeks ago and the only trails that saw erosion were the old trails.Please restart 8/16/2021 22:57 Kevin Watt construction on the trails under the Foothills Master Plan.Thanks,Kevin Watt Foothills Trail System Master Plan 12:38 PM 8/17/2021 Page 6 Public Comments 08.11.2021-08.17.2021 Date/Time Opened Contact Name Comment Topic Salt Lake City's Foothills are cherished for their natural beauty,recreational opportunities,and close proximity.In addition to offering immense physical and mental benefits to city residents,the Foothills are home to diverse flora and fauna and have been a vital resource for the area's inhabitants for centuries.As steward of these fragile lands,Salt Lake City has the responsibility to ensure they remain intact for tomorrow.It's essential that we take the time to evaluate,reassess,and revise the Foothills Trails Master Plan so that the chaotic and destructive implementation of Phase 1 isn't repeated. There is too much at stake.Please don't approve funding for Phase 2 until a comprehensive 8/16/2021 22:58 Monica Hilding environmental plan is in place.Let's take the time to do this right!Thank you. Foothills Trail System Master Plan Hi,I like like to ask that you reconsider the Foot Hills Master Plan as it offer healthier alternatives for recreation that also reduce pollution.I've heard that the trail system could have been done better.So let's get the right people involved to do it right and continue to build trail systems and a healthier 8/16/2021 22:59 Jesse Casillas state and community.Thanks,Jesse Foothills Trail System Master Plan Hello Everyone-I really appreciate all the hard work you do.I own a condo in the Marmalade district and have lived in SLC since going to the U in 2001.The area is growing fast!As you know,and we have more and more users.I have appreciated all the hard work that has gone into the expansion of trails.I am an avid mountain biker and trail runner.I enjoy the foothills for both purposes.I think we need more trails for both groups.More mountain bike only trails(especially downhill only)and hike only trails.It will separate the users.As a mountain biker I love choosing the downhill bike only options.I know I don't have to be as worried about encountering hikers on the up.And as a trail runner it is nice to not have to worry about fast bike traffic.I have been excited to read about all the panned trails and jump on them when they are complete.I think the trails project should move 8/16/2021 23:00 Rachel Woolston forward.We need the trails now more than ever.Thank you,Rachel Woolston Foothills Trail System Master Plan Hello,my family and I are residents of Sugarhouse and we would like to voice our vigorous support for the current Foothills Master Plan.We are avid mountain bikers,trail runners,and hikers,and we have been very impressed with the execution of Phase 1.While I understand there is opposition to continuing with Phase 2,we would very much like to see Phase 2 completed as it would give all trail 8/16/2021 23:01 Ken Kanashiro users a place to recreate safely and sustainably.Thank you for your time,Ken Kanashiro Foothills Trail System Master Plan 12:38 PM 8/17/2021 Page 7 Public Comments 08.11.2021-08.17.2021 Date/Time Opened Contact Name Comment Salt Lake City Council,We would like to express our adamant opposition to consideration of including funding for Phase 2 of the Foothills Trails Master Plan in the funding of Capital Improvement Projects at this time.The implementation of Phase 1 of the Foothills Trails Master Plan demonstrates the inadequacy of the Master Plan.Over many objections,the Master Plan was developed and adopted with a faulty methodology supported by data and surveys that were designed to support a predetermined agenda.It is unclear whether the surveys used to create the Master Plan separated the responses of city residents from those of the surrounding areas.The implementation of Phase 1 ran slipshod over objections by,and unkept promises to,many stakeholders.This necessitated a pause in the implementation of the Master Plan that is an admission by the city that while the residents are being asked to'reimage natural lands,'the city should be'reimaging'the Foothills Trail Master Plan.If the Master Plan is in question it is irresponsible to be discussing any further funding of the Master Plan at this time.Among the many deficiencies in the Master Plan are:-There was inadequate study of natural resources impacted by the Plan.The negative impacts to the protected watershed areas at Spring Gulch(with its wonderful waterfall)and the fragile ecology of Dry Creek are just two of the areas given insufficient attention in the Master Plan.Salt Lake City residents deserve better stewardship from their elected officials.-There was a prioritization of biking and hiking use of the limited foothills resource.Our dramatic hillsides are now forever scarred by trails gouged into them to the detriment of city residents who choose not to see our foothills used in that fashion.Parks like the 11th Avenue Park and Popperton Park are being made unusable as parks as the parking lots for each is overrun by hikers and bikers,many of whom are not city residents but nonetheless were irresponsibly encouraged to come and congregate during an unprecedented 8/16/202123:07 John and susan Dawson pandemic.*Continued 1/2* Foothills Trail System Master Plan 12:38 PM 8/17/2021 Page 8 Public Comments 08.11.2021-08.17.2021 Date/Time Opened Contact Name Comment *Continued 2/2*The infrastructure for supporting the hoards of users being invited to come to the area by the foothills trails is treated as an afterthought.As already mentioned,the parking is totally inadequate.The traffic control needs to be rethought in light of the increased use by motor vehicles, bikers and hikers.Narrow roads like Popperton Park Way cannot handle the vehicular traffic when congested with bikers blocking the road as they unload,regroup and then head off often riding 4 or 5 abreast.As was painfully evident during the Connecticut Fire last year,Popperton Park Way is the ONLY access for residents of the Federal Pointe subdivision and now those residents must contend with groups of people seeking recreation who feel entitled to block the road on invitation of the city.- The opportunities for the handicapped are extremely limited."The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in several areas,including employment, transportation,public accommodations,communications and access to state and local government programs and services."The city has chosen to violate federal law by removing handicapped parking spaces at places like the 11th Avenue Park and Popperton Park.It is a sad commentary to note that a bicycle tire pump was installed at Popperton Park to meet the needs of those bikers who recreate without being properly prepared,but the city has made the conscious decision to exclude the handicapped from not only the foothills trails but also from the adjacent city parks.-There is inadequate planning for sanitation facilities for the trail.This should have been a primary concern as it was a problem before the first backhoe started further carving up the foothills.-There is inadequate planning to provide policing for the trails and the adjacent roadways in the Master Plan. The concept that the trail users would police themselves is a fantasy.Any responsible individual would immediately dismiss this fallacy,filed under the heading'Foxes and Henhouses.'Please revisit the Foothills Trails Master Plan to address these concerns and the ideas expressed by others,some obviously dismissed during the development of the Master Plan,before considering funding of further actions on our valuable,but limited,foothills resource.Thank you for your consideration, John and susan Dawson John and Susan Dawson 12:38 PM 8/17/2021 Page 9 Public Comments 08.11.2021-08.17.2021 Date/Time Opened Contact Name Comment Dear leaders of Salt Lake City,I am an active outdoor/trail user and lifetime resident of Utah.I engage in almost anything outdoor related,but for mental and physical health have turned to mountain biking and hiking as a source of physical and mental healing.I usually have to drive many miles north or south of my home to be able to ride or hike.I frequent the draper trail system as well as the Snowbasin trail systems.Having trail improvements in SLC has helped me to be closer to home and share this activity with my friends and family.Salt Lake City has a wealth of untapped potential for BEAUTIFUL trails and will help to allow for the large increase in trail users we have seen this past year. Providing more access to mountain recreation has lead to many other families getting outside and enjoying what our fine state has to offer.Other cities have placed a large emphasis on trail development and Salt Lake City has fallen behind.Some great examples of development are Cedar City,Herriman,and of course the model example in Utah...Draper City.If you have ever been to any of the businesses in Draper on any given evening or weekend you will see multiple trail users not just enjoying trails,but the food/retail establishments in the area.There have been multiple studies done on the positive impacts of trail systems,including WalMart's home town of Bentonville Arkansas as the ultimate guidebook to the development of trails and the benefits to the local culture and economy.The bottom line is that Salt Lake City is in a severe need more trails to provide more options for the ever growing population.There is also a need for dedicated bike only trails(as outlined in the Foothills Master Plan)to help provide safer experience for all users.I would like to voice my support for the Foothills Master Plan.I have already spent many hours on the new and improved SLC trails that have already been completed in Phase 1.They are a blast!I would like to see phase 1 finished and phase 2 started.I owe my physical and mental health to being able to access local trails to hike,bike,and enjoy our beautiful state.I would love to see Salt Lake City continue with the Foothills Master Plan.I greatly appreciate your service and hope you will continue support of this

Foothills Trail System Master Plan Dear SLC Council members,I've been hiking in the Salt Lake City foothills for over 20 years.I especially enjoy hiking the Ridgeline trail above 18th avenue.I was heartbroken to see the Ridgeline trail closed and replaced with trails that not only don't fit into the natural topography but have such narrow switchbacks that I felt like a hamster in a maze.Please re-evaluate the continuation of the next phase.Please talk to hikers and look at the damage that has already been caused.Thank you, 8/16/2021 23:16 Elizabeth Griffin Elizabeth Griffin Foothills Trail

As a mountain biker who thoroughly enjoys the Foothills trail system,I would personally love to see these trails,and many others,finished.But as someone who cares about her home and those folks who are blessed enough to also live here,I feel the continuation of this work is dire to the health of 8/17/2021 11:38 Anna Booth the community.Thank you for your time,Anna Booth Foothills Trail System Master Plan Constituent called into talk about Mayor Mendenhall and homelessness.He states that the Mayor is 8/17/2021 11:46 Anonymous Constituent not truthful. Homelessness Dear Councilmember Dugan,It's come to my attention that the Council will be addressing the future of additional trails in the Foothills during two upcoming meetings:August 17 and August 24.I'm writing to voice my absolute support FOR more trails above 11th Avenue,Dry Creek,and the Red Butte/Zoo area.Growth is uncomfortable.My preference would have been for more managed and controlled growth 10+years ago.But that train has left the station.So now,the city is in a position of needing to adjust current infrastructure to support this exponential growth.Our Foothill trails must be a part of the infrastructure that needs to grow.It's primarily SLC residents and citizens who use these trails.These trails contribute to the mental health,physical fitness and overall well-being of thousands of people.Trails seem to be a much healthier and much less expensive system to build, versus additional hospitals,and mental health facilities.These multi-use trails are easily assessable to young and old for free.Our city's value only increases with this type of system.I urge you to support Phase 1 and Phase 2 funding for additional trails along the Foothill Corridor.Thank you.Sincerely, 8/17/2021 11:53 Rachel Sweet Rachel Sweet Foothills Trail System Master Plan 12:38 PM 8/17/2021 Page 27 Public Comments 08.11.2021-08.17.2021 Date/Time Opened Contact Name Constituent called in to report that there are homeless people camped out behind the building on 1470 S State and doing drugs and throwing needles and garbage over the fence.He states that they 8/17/2021 11:56 John Doe are being harassed and something needs to be done immediately.

Holmes Organization(if applicable): N/A Address: City: Salt Lake City State: Utah Zip Code: 84103 Proposed Project Information Project Name: East Capitol Boulevard Traffic Calming Project Funding Request—Amount: $90,000 ... based on information provided by the Federal Highway Administration's PEDSAFE case studies on raised pedestrian crossings. See details at www.pedbikesafe.org/PEDSAFE/countermeasures_detail.cfm?CM NUM=7 The actual amount will be determined by City engineering studies and current construction costs. Are there outside/supplemental/matching funds available for this project? If so, how much? No Project Address: East Capitol Boulevard, Salt Lake City; from 700 North to approx. 900 North Project Description: (abstract only) - a project narrative is attached This community improvement project involves the construction of three raised crosswalks or speed tables across East Capitol Boulevard, strategically placed to calm traffic along the entire length of the street. Pending review by the City's Transportation, Engineering, and Streets departments, our initial request is for a raised crosswalk or speed table to be constructed near the intersections of East Capitol Boulevard and 700 North, Edgecombe Drive, and South Sandrun Drive. Please see the attached street map, with suggested raised crosswalk/speed table locations marked with white dots. A photo of a speed table is also attached. How does your project address community and/or general City needs? What is the public benefit? This project addresses an important, long-standing public safety need of the residential neighborhood on an increasingly busy collector street. Traffic calming devices, such as the raised crosswalks or speed tables we request, are required to effectively reduce the vehicular speeding problem and its associated dangers to pedestrians, cyclists, law-abiding motorists, and wildlife that frequent the area. Previous temporary interventions by the Salt Lake City Police Department, while well meaning, have been ineffective. The current dangerous situation is untenable and calls for a permanent, concrete solution. Community Outreach *Community outreach is required. It is preferred that you present your project to your Community Council for their endorsement. If your Community Council is not available, alternative public engagement is acceptable. You must provide documentation of the outreach that you do. List Community Council: Capitol Hill Neighborhood Council (CHNC) We have made three presentations to the Capitol Hill Neighborhood Council this year; twice to the general monthly meeting and once to the CHNC board. Date presented to Community Council: May 15, 2019 ... to CHNC general meeting August 21, 2019 ... to CHNC Board September 18, 2019 ... to CHNC general meeting Describe the type of other community outreach performed: (please include documentation of any additional outreach). Our door-to-door petition drive has thus far collected over 120 signatures. Attached to this application is a copy of each completed petition. Our petition canvass has covered Capitol Hill from Columbus Street to Ensign Vista Drive. These community contacts sometimes involved lengthy conversations with fellow residents who identified numerous traffic safety and flow issues. Even residents distant from East Capitol Boulevard signed the petition with the hope that the City will devote more attention to solving serious traffic problems. Many residents recognized that speeding along East Capitol Boulevard sometimes creates dangers on adjacent streets. We learned from long-time residents that requests for City action go back decades,but have come to nought. Community outreach also involved bringing our concerns and petition copies to this year's budget session of the Salt Lake City Council. Every Council member, and everyone in the audience, was apprised of the concerns Capitol Hill residents have expressed through the petition campaign.
