MAY 2019 MAYOR’S MESSAGE

Spring is finally here after a seemingly endless winter and things are jumping all over the City. The City has issued 59 new building permits since July 1, 2018. In addition, several new developments are being proposed in the undeveloped portion of the City north of Harmons. These projects will be heard by the Planning Commission in the next few months and include a mix of townhomes, single family lots, commercial and a resort property with access to an expanded Entrada Golf Course through the lava fields. The projects include the expansion of the City’s very popular trail system along the Tuachan Wash. Growth and the real estate market is still holding strong in Santa Clara and throughout Washington County. For more information check out the Planning Commission Agendas on the City website.
Speaking of parks and trails, Caden Morris completed his Eagle project by constructing a trail to connect the Spence Gunn Baseball field at Canyon View Park to the Little League fields below. The new trail was immediately appreciated by ballplayers and other users at the park. The City Parks Department Staff does an excellent job of keeping the City beautiful and maintaining the athletic fields for Little League and a variety of youth and adult baseball and softball tournaments. Thanks to everyone who supported Arbor Day at Canyon View Park on April 13th, including a large group of volunteers from the Rachel Drive Church who worked to rejuvenate the Boy Scout Fire Pit area on the Corner of Little League and Canyon View Drives. Thanks also to Rocky Mountain Power, Tree City USA and the Utah Community Forestry Council for their donations. A heartfelt thanks goes out to the students from Dixie State University for their good work planting flowers and beautifying Heritage Square as well.

The first Shakespeare in the Park presentation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream was held in mid-April in the park across from Town Hall and provided a unique outdoor cultural event for residents and visitors alike in downtown Santa Clara. Despite the cooler weather, the play was well attended and the audience appeared to enjoy themselves. Thanks to the organizers, actors, technicians and audience for supporting this new event. With everyone’s support, this can become an annual event. The event is one of the projects partially funded by the City portion of Washington County RAP tax revenues. Funds are also provided by the City to support Tuachan, the Kayenta Arts Foundation and the Santa Clara Historical Society.

Soon the summer heat will be upon us so enjoy the mild days and nights. Catch a baseball game or a picnic in the park with your family and friends. It’s a great time of year to get outside and celebrate living in this place we call home. While you are at it remember to stay safe Santa Clara.

THE PET CORNER: APRIL 2019

GREETINGS FROM THE IVINS ANIMAL SHELTER
Bailee Mabe SCI Animal Control & Animal Shelter Manager
Phone #: 435-628-1049 Email: bmabe@ivins.com

Be aware!! Animal Con-trol has be-gun getting snake calls. Please watch your step and keep your dogs leashed on the trails for their safety.

INKAS (Ivins No-Kill Animal Supporters)

Spring has sprung!!! April brought bright flowers and so much green to our area landscapes. April also resulted in three very successful and fun-filled events for INKAS. On April 13th INKAS co-sponsored a “Low-Cost Pet Clinic” with PAWS (Providing Animals With Support).100 vaccinations, 55 spay/neuter vouchers and 45 microchips were administered. On the same day, INKAS participated in the Washington County “HAVOC” Cars and K-9’s event. To wrap up the month on April 27 – 28, INKAS staffed our table at the Kayenta Street Painting Festival. These events are always so meaningful to INKAS not only because of the cost-effective services we are able to provide and the generous donations we are able to raise, but also because of all the wonderful stories that are shared with us about “who rescued who” and those fortunate shelter animals that have found their “forever homes”.

As we move into the warmer months of the year may you continue to enjoy the sheer beauty of this area. Also remember to keep yourself and your four-legged family member hydrated!
