01-03-17 Town Council Packet supplemental material Public Comment Jan 3, 2017: Three-Point Positive Path For the record Pat Keefer - 90 Carriage Way - a reluctant Base Village Activist and Liaison for Base Village HOAs. The purpose of this public comment is to request positive progress towards Base Village success. While none of the current Town Council or the BVROs, Base Village Residential Owners, created the lack of success of Base Village, we all want to make the needed changes so that Base Village can be successful. A third of Base Village residential units built in 2008 remain unsold. Assuming the 1/1/17 Aspen Daily News is correct and Base Village once sold for $169M and then $89M out of foreclosure and now $56.5M, this is not a good trend. Coupled with a debt load of $62-75M, which is larger than the purchase price, that creates onerous Base Village taxes with minor (12%) forecasted but not committed relief sometime in the next decade and even larger Base Village unique Master association fees, the BVRO financial outlook remains bleak. The new developers are sticking with the existing Base Village financial model which historically has made Base Village properties uncompetitive with surrounding properties in the marketplace and betting that, "If you build it, they will come [buy]." Cinematically, `Field of Dreams' may be able to make that happen with Kevin Costner and the help of the sonorous tones of James Earl Jones, but in real life, a 3-point positive path is more practical. Base Village Residential Owners recommend: 1 . Voting Rights and Representation Commensurate with Contributions 2. Delivery on BV Promises 3. BV Economic Equation Change These positive changes can rejuvenate the enthusiasm for Base Village. Today, BVROs, Base Village Residential Owners are asking the GID Board/Town Council to contribute to the third point: BV Economic Equation Change. With respect to GID, General Improvement District, we recently learned that the State of Colorado expects all parties who benefit from the Improvements to be taxed to pay for the Improvement. Because all parties who benefit from SkyCab and snowmelt in the GID are not and have not been taxed for the Improvements, we suggest convening a GID Board meeting as soon as possible or at the latest by mid-February, with sufficient notice so that taxpayers can participate, to discuss adoption one of these options: A. Bring TOSV's GID into compliance with State of Colorado expectations for Improvement Districts by: a. Dissolving GID and amending budgets so that both BV RETT, Real Estate Transfer Tax, income and SkyCab/Snowmelt expenses are recognized in TOSV's budget as soon as possible and by December, 2017 at the latest. b. Reimburse the excess GID taxes paid by Base Village property owners because all benefiting parties were not taxed for the Improvements. Note that funding for the above can be supplied by the 1% BV RETT of $560,500 from the sale of Base Village, future BV RETT and normal TOSV mil levy against BV properties. Historically, if just the windfall of the 1% RETT for the $169M, $89M and $56.5M sales of Base Village had been applied to GID Improvements, the total of $3.145M would have made GID unnecessary based on a $250,000 annual budget and a surplus would exist. BV more than pays its own way. or B. Bring TOSV's GID into compliance with State of Colorado expectations for Improvement Districts by: a. Taxing all parties benefiting from Improvements funded in GID beginning January, 2018. b. Reimburse the excess taxes paid by Base Village property owners because all benefiting parties were not taxed for the Improvements. Funding for the reimbursement can be supplied by the 1% BV RETT of $560,500 from the sale of Base Village, future BV RETT and normal TOSV mil levy against BV properties c. Create a GID website with all normal tax district information. d. Quarterly Board meetings. e. Populate the GID Advisory Board in the same manner as other TOSV functions —taxpayers with specific BVRO participation and Town Staff Liaison Finally, the Base Village Residential Owners' leadership is actively creating and executing elements on the 3-Point Positive Path for Base Village success. At times, it may be messy; such as, the recall of the entire Base Village Metropolitan District Board which levies 43.5 mils of taxes. 50% of the eligible electors signed an informal recall petition when only 40% is required. The onerous and oppressive process for a formal recall led to hiring a litigator to prepare the recall petitions. The petitions have been approved, as to form, by the attorney that acts as the Districts' DEO, Designated Election Official. Signatures are being collected in the labor-intensive prescribed manner. The recall goals are part of Point 1 in the 3-Point Positive Path, Voting Rights and Representation Commensurate with Contributions. Base Village Residential Owners contribute 100% of the income to BVMetro2 and two-thirds of the tax income to BVMetrol; therefore, BVROs should have 100% of the BVMetro2 seats and at least 60% of the five BVMetrol seats.
