COTTONWOOD – The Cottonwood City Council met Jan. 17 to vote on the Vineyards at Cottonwood development, clarify minutes, review an application process, and discuss the location qualifications of a Parks and Recreation commission member.

Vineyards at Cottonwood

Council approved a developmental agreement with Granite Mountain Asset Management, LLC, for development of the Vineyards at Cottonwood, a residential/mixed-use development located between SR 89A and Main Street north of Old Town. Council also approved the preliminary plat for Phase 1 of the development.

Clarification of Minutes

Councilmembers Kyla Allen and Deb Althouse requested to clarify/correct the minutes of the Dec. 20, 2016, regular council meeting, as approved by the council Jan. 3.

The Council approved, with dissenting votes by Councilmembers Tosca Henry and Ruben Jauregui, to amend the minutes of the regular council meeting of Dec. 20, 2016 (that were approved by the Council Jan. 3) to reflect that Councilmember Karen Pfeifer voted no on the motion to appoint Ruben Jauregui as Vice Mayor, and that Councilmember Deb Althouse abstained from voting.

Application Process

The Council considered and approved the new board and commission application process (with changes to the application form) and review committee structure as presented.

Parks and Recreation

The Council discussed allowing one member of the Parks and Recreation Commission to be a member of the community who resides in one of the unincorporated areas outside of the city limits.

The motion failed with a tie-vote.
