Just like lhe Patriots footballleam last night, no matter how bleak the situation looks, Base Village Residential Owners keep working towards 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 SUCCCSSfUI, 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 $1691\il and then $89lvl out of foreclosure and now $56.5M, this is not a good trend. Coupled with onerous Base Village taxes 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, "lf 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 posilive path is more practical. Base Village Flesidential Owners recommend: 1 . Voting Flights and Board 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 Flesidential Owners are asking the GID Board/Town Council to contribute to the third point: BV Economic Equation Change. With respect to GlD, General lmprovement District, we recently learned that the State of Colorado expects all parties who benerit f rom the lmprovements lo be taxed to pay for the lmprovement. Because all parties who benefit from Skycab and snowmelt in the GID are nol and have not been taxed for the lmprovements, we suggest convening a GID Board meeting as soon as possible to discuss adoption one of these options: A. Bring TOSV's GID into compliance with State of Colorado expectations for lmprovement Districts by: a. Dissolving GID and amending budgets so that both BV RETT, Real Estate Transfer Tax, income and Skyoab/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 beneriting parties were not taxed tor the lmprovements. Note that funding for the above can be supplied by the 1% BV windfall 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 $169N'4, $89l\'I and $56 5Nil sales of Base Village ha'd been applied to GIO lmprovements, the total of $3 145Ni1 would have made GID unnetessary based on a $25o,ooo annual budget and a surplus would exist BV more than pays its own way. or B. Bring TOSV's GID into compliance wlth Stale of Colorado expectations for lmprovement Districts by: a. Taxing all parties benefiting lrcm lmprovemenls funded in GID beginning January, 2018. b. Feimburse the excess taxes paid by Base Village property owners because all benefiting parties were not laxed lor lhe lmprovemerts. Funding for the reimbursement can be supplied by the 1% BV FIETT of $560,500 from the sale oI Base Village, future BV FIETT 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, we hope that Town Council willjoin the Base Village Residential Owners' leadership in actively creatlng and executing elements on the 3-Point Positive Path for Base Village success Thank you for your time. I remain, A reluctant, but by necessity, Base Village Activist Base Village Liaison for Capitol Peak HOA Board Base Village Liaison for Hayden HOA Board Base Village Liaison for Viceroy/Assay Hill Residential HOA Board l\,4ember Optional BVMetro #2 comments: TOSV and ASC signed an IGA that created lhree districts that all tax Base Village Residential Owners: GID and Bvlvletro #1 and Bvlvletro #2 for a total of 49.5 mils BVlvletro #2 promptly issued bonds for $48Nil set to discharge in 2029 By 2016 BVMetro debt had grown to $651\i1 set to discharge in 2043 Becent restructuring has the debt at $44M set to discharge in 2048 with some debt transferred to BVN4etro #1 Note that because BVN4elro #2 only pays about 30 cenls on the dollar of annual debt service due, debt will grow back. Assumptions that commercial properties will fix this are incorrect as BV commercial properties onty contribute lo BVMetro #1, not Bv|\retro #2 where the $44N/ in debt is sitting BV Phase 2 only adds 60 residential properties to the roughly 250 existing residential properties. Assuming equivalent values the taxable value might increases by 25ish%. That might mean Bv|\iletro #2 could pay 37.5 cents on the dollar of annual debt service. Therefore debt will still grow. So it sounds great to say $201\,/I in debt was lorgiven but two key potns need to be understood o Whether BVMetro #2 holds $65M or $44[/ in bonds, the 30-37.5 cents coverage rate on a dollar will allow the debt to grow o The $20M in debt was considered worthless debt. lt was never going to be paid anyway. We know East West is trying but more substantive changes with the help of TOSV will be needed in order to make Base Village a success. Using the Super Bowl Champion Patriots as an example, it can be done.

Tvler Chase Anderson Sonnenblick- Proposed Garages Friday, February 03,2017 4:55:08 PM Hi Chase, l'm a condo owner at the Aspenwood and am sending a quick note to let you know that I support the proposed garages at the Sonnenblick. I have seen people drive up and down Fall Lane- poachingthe Sonnenblick parking spots and creating serious issues for the community. Closed garages will prevent these issues and provide little impact on Fall Lane (which, aside from Sonnenblick owner access is a dead end used almost exclusively for trucks to deliver supplies to the Westin). As we all know, parking is at a premium in Snowmass. Allowing Sonnenblick to build garages for their owners & guests, willopen spaces in the numbered lots forthe other properties, guests and locals coming up to stay, ski or visit our fine lodging, dining and shopping establishments. lf you have any questions please feel free to reach out.

I am a co-founder and director of Enabled Enterprises, an Aspen Disabled Veteran owned business founded by myself and two Aspen disabled Marines. Enabled Enterprises has now become a national organization based here, rvu,w'.etrabled.vet. As now a full time resident of SMV it is even more important to me that we do everything to remain a first class community. The remodeling of The Aspenwood and Sonnenblick was a significant upgrade. Why stop short. The addition of attractive garages in place of viewing gas gages, water hoses, asphalt parking spaces, no parking signs and a retaining wall will be a huge improvement. It will also change the feel from an alley to a residence road. This will also solve the issue of illegal parking at Sonnenblick by private vehicles and companies serving other condominiums and add additional parking for the village. Knowing SMV is committed to being first class, this is an opportunity to enhance the town at no cost to the city. It seems like everyone wins.

Better yet, it comes with a $0.00 price tag to the SV budget. As a designer, I am confident the garages rvill beautify this area and bring the property into this century rvhile still maintaining the charm and ambience of Snorvmass Village. Furthermore, the garages rvill add adequate designated parking for the tenants of Sonnenblick and rvill remove the decades of illegal parkers. Thank you for your consideration. Most sincerely, Marilee Marilee J Upton-Spatz Marlar Properties, LP Vice President Sent from my iPad Februa ry 5, 2017 Town of Snowmass Village Attn: Chase Anderson, Pla n ner P. O. Box 5010 Snowmass Village, CO 81615 RE: Sonnenblick request for enclosed garage space Dea r Mr. Anderson, We are the owners of unit 102 at the Laurelwood that sits directly on Gallun Lane. The proposal by the Sonnenblick Home Owners Association to add a two car enclosed garage at a preposterous 16 feet tall across from our building would powerfully impact our view and quality of space. This proposal would seriously impact several owners at the Laurelwood (respectfully units 101, lO2, 106, 1O7, 777 and 112) not to mention the number of owners at the Aspenwood. The info section of the Notice stated that the Sonnenblick has significant parking issues and that is the reason for requesting this massive building project. The Town has provided adequate parking for owners and guests in parking lots 10 and 11. (we know since we live here January, February and March every year). Every owner that purchased at the Sonnenblick understood the parking situation just like all of us at Laurelwood and Aspenwood. For those of us that have the privilege of spending time here, we simply purchase parking permits from the Town. Since we do live here in the winter months, we have only seen a car or two parked in those spaces sporadically throughout the prime season. We do not believe that the Town should allow the owners of Sonnenblick to negatively impact so many owners at Laurelwood and Aspenwood because they want covered parking. The Town should work for the greater good off all and this proposal will only benefit a few owners at Sonnenblick and adversely affect so many others. The decrease in value of our condo and especially Laurelwood Owners of units 101 and 106 and some Aspenwood Owners is not worth it. The monstrous size garage would completely take away from any view that Laurelwood owners of units 101 and 106 have always enjoyed and expect. The financial impact to these owners must be taken into account. Covered parking for a few owners does not justify the negative financia I andwellbeingof somanyothers. Ourgoal coming to this beautifularea is to enjoy the outdoors, wonderfulviews, open air, etc. This will totally impact our quality of outdoor space - and NOT in a good way. Not only would it seriously hamper our view and feel of outdoor space, it would look out of place in Snowmass. We do not recall any condominium project in Snowmass Village that has enclosed garages. The proposed plans would make it look like an overbuilt large storage/warehouse space. Again, we want to reiterate that the Town has provided more than adequate parking for owners and guests in Parking lots 10 and 11 (not to mention all the other parking lots). We respectfully ask the Town to seriously consider the negative impact this will have on so many of your tax paying citizens. Sincerely, Ted and Linda Giddings Owners Unit 102 Laurelwood Condos (843) 267 -1012 From: To: Subject: Date: Scott Hirsch Chase Anderson Sonnenblick Parking Expansion Monday, February 05,2017 2:07:.29 PM Hi Chase. My wife and I moved our family to Snowmass from Basalt 4 years ago and purchased number 4 at Sonnenblick about l0 months ago after renting for 2 years. At one time I managed the Snowmass Inn and the Mountain Chalet under the mall and we as a company managed numerous homeowners associations throughout the village including Snowmass Mountain condos, Woodbridge, Lichenhearth, Aspenwood and Sonnenblick before the company sold the condo management business in its entirety. As a business manager, renter and now owner, I am intimately familiar with the issues surrounding parking in SMV and how beneficial any opportunity to create or expand existing parking would be. There are miscellaneous projects throughout the village that are blessed with carports and/or garages and some actually have both like the employee housing project of the Daly townhomes below the Timbers club. The current character of Falland Gallun lanes could be nothing but enhanced by the addition of new, nice and secure garages that would serve multiple benefits not the least of which is the parking but also adds storage, security and an aesthetic to juxtapose the Wildwood and Westin's stucco conference center. The added benefit of immediately eliminating all of the poaching that occurs on a daily basis would enhance neighbor relations and is simply a bonus. Thank you very much.
