The purpose ofthe ITSP is to develop a vision and a long-term transpo(ation plan for RFTA. The ITSP is intended to comprehensively address the mobility issues, opportunities, and challenges that face RFTA and its constituents in the near and long term. Stage I ofthe ITSP assessed RFTA's needs in terms of facilities, fleet, human capital, capital and operating budgets and other resources, based on its current roles and responsibilities. Stage I also developed forecasts of growth in the transit system, and outlined what RFTA must do to sustain this groMh. Stage II of the ITSP resulted in a comprehensive list of alternatives that should be implemented over the next 20 years to meet the needs that were identified from Stage I. Stage III (the current Stage) is fully developing the Alternatives and evaluating them for how and when they should be implemented. RFTA is exploring funding the improvements with a property tax initiative to be included in the November 2018 ballot. Over the next couple ofmonths, RFTA and Parsons Transportation Group will be reaching out to elected officials and the public to further refine the package of improvements that should be included in a ballot question and they will be polling stakeholders to help guide the RFTA board on whether to move forward with the ballot initiative. The final Stage ofthe study, Stage IV, will start in 2018 and will establish a financial plan. 11-13-17 TC Work Session RFTA and their consultants have requested time to hear input from during this meeting. They intend to meet for approximately thirty to forty-five minutes for a briefupdate and discussion on the current Stage lll efforts. David Johnson or Dan Blankenship from RFTA will attend with Ralph Trapani from the consultant team.

TOSV Tirils That Do Not Hays An Easement Mrpped TOSV GIS - Project ffion "eTE-ffiryry t 'q 30 Town of Snowmass Village Agenda ltem Summary November 13, 2017 AGENDA ITEM Review of Community Questionnaire on Marijuana Sales in Snowmass Village PRESENTED BY: Travis Elliott, Assistant to the Town Manager BACKGROUND: Anonym ity: The questionnaire is currently configured to require a name and address. At our meeting on September 'l8th, some members of the Town Council expressed concerns about this requirement, and the lack of anonymity preventing members of the community from participating in a candid manner. Since that discussion, staff has determined that names collected through a public policy questionnaire would be subject to open records requests. Therefore, if we collect names through this questionnaire, we cannot guarantee the respondents and their opinions will remain anonymous. Staff can, however, present the results in aggregate and withhold names during all public presenlations. lf the Town Council wishes to guarantee the community that the responses will be kept anonymous, the name and address fields would need to be removed completely from the questionnaire. The disadvantage to this approach is that staff wouldn't have the ability to verify responses. Anyone, including special interest groups from outside of the region, would have the ability submit responses that would be indistinguishable from local responses. 11-13-17 TC Work Session Page 31 of 37 DATE OF MEETING: During preliminary discussions of the moratorium of marijuana sales in Snowmass Village, staff was directed to design a tool to collect community feedback on the topic. Staff created an online questionnaire to collect this feedback in an organized and methodical way. lt is attached for your review and has been updated based on the edits Town Council suggested at our previous discussion on September 18th. The online version is also available to review at https.//www.survevmonkev.com/r/MJtosv. 31 Next Steps: Upon approval, staff will utilize our existing communication channels to distribute the questionnaire. This includes our websites, newsletter subscription list, newspaper advertisements, social media pages, mailers, and more. lt will be available to all members of the community, including part time residents. Our Part Time Residents Advisory Board (PTRAB) has specifically requested this, as outlined in their attached letter to the Town Council (attachment B). ATTACHMENTS A.

However, in the matter of legalization of marijuana sales within Snowmass Village, PTRAB urges the Town Council to select a decision process in which part time resident opinions are heard and counted on an equal footing with those of other constituents. Collectively, the part time residents make up a significant percentage of the households and have made very large investments in the property and tax revenues of TOSV. Therefore, we believe it is only fair to consider the part time voice on par with others on this polarizing issue that many feel could impact the village for years to come. Thank you for your consideration of this request. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions or cornments on these issues. Very truly yours, Debbie L. COtd Chair, PTRAB On behalf of the entire PTRAB 11-13-17 TC Work Session Page 37 of 37 37
