I am wondering if there is a way to set up a site pages webpart that creates a templated page instead of the blank one that is currently generated?

You'll want to create a new page layout for that purpose. Henry Hong has a good walk through here. It's pretty detailed so I can't really spell it out here.

The benefit of this is it allows you to define a view for when users are adding/editing content and a view for the display by utilizing the PublishingWebControls:EditModePanel and setting the PageDisplayMode to PageDisplayMode="Display" or PageDisplayMode="Edit".

I've used this to great success.

Page layouts require a publishing site but you can create a custom ASPX page in SPD and add web part zones in the layout you want to use if you are not using a publishing site.
