S L C <nocmac Land(mlly me March 20, 2000 Ms. Victoria Giannola Planning Director Town of Snowmass Village P.O. Box 5010 Snowmass Village, Colorado 81615 Re: Pre-Sketch Plan, Owl Creek Townhomes Phase IV Dear Victoria: On behalf of the Snowmass Land Company, we are requesting Town Council work session time for Pre-Sketch Plan Review of our proposed fourth phase of the Owl Creek Townhomes. The subject site is owned by Snowmass Land Company and is identified on East Village Planned Unit Development Plat as Parcel A Lot 3. The proposal for Parcel A Lot 3, (19.626 acres), includes an approximately 2- acre site, which will serve as an expansion parcel for Anderson Ranch Arts Center. Sixteen twnhomes equal in character to the existing Owl Creek Townhomes, landscaping,trails and open space are also proposed. The subject property consists mostly of open meadow with an irrigation ditch,Nordic and alpine ski trails. The property is equal in character and compatible to East Village PUD Parcel E and H, site of Phase 1, 2 and 3 of the existing Owl Creek Townhomes. As you are aware we are currently scheduled to go before the Town Council during work session on April 3, 2000. We acknowledge that the town is in the process of adopting an ordinance which will allow an applicant to discuss its plans with the Council through an optional pre-sketch plan review. If this process is adopted by 2nd reading on March 20, 2000,we then would like to request that our review on the P be under the guidelines of this newly adopted ordinance (Ordinance 08, Series of 2000). s< <-r:w Ha,c oIlJ >noe n..... 1'i E\5= 970-023-{305 1.

March 20,2000 Written Description Owl Creek Townhomes Pre-Sketch Plan Worksession p.2 Proposed Improvements Summary This application proposes a mixed use development for Lot 3, Parcel A of the East Village Planned Unit Development(PUD)consisting of an addition to the existing neighborhood of sixteen detached and duplex Owl Creek Townhomes and an expansion of the Anderson Ranch Arts Center campus. The application also proposes the conveyance of approximately 160 acres of land to the town. The proposed sixteen townhomes are nearly identical in design and overall character to the Owl Creek Townhomes that currently exist in the neighborhood. Slight modifications will likely be made to the townhome design to fit the structures to the site's topographic features. Each townhome will include a two-car garage, plus one adjacent parking space. Extensive landscape improvements are also proposed identical to the landscape character of the existing Owl Creek Townhomes. An expansion of the Anderson Ranch Arts Center will address long-standing needs identified by the Arts Center, a nationally recognized community cultural facility,particularly for summer visitors. The Anderson Ranch is effectively without any land for further growth at its current campus and requires an addition to its Exhibition space,housing for senior staff persons, and additional studio space. These are badly needed year round buildings of the Arts Center which can also be used by members of the community. Approximately 95 percent(17.39 acres)of the parcel will be retained as general open space— land area not covered by above ground structures. The existing pedestrian and bike path will be maintained in a new location, and the Nordic trail will be realigned partially within the skiing easement. Lot 3,Parcel A of the East Village PUD is currently identified on the approved land use plan as having the following permitted uses: landscaping,open space, hiking,biking,equestrian,nordic and downhill skiing,and golf. The golf use is permitted with the intention that it be used, in conjunction with Parcels C and D of Horse Ranch PUD, to construct up to nine holes of golf. These holes would be operated as an addition to the existing 18-hole golf course. In conceptual planning and design the configuration of three holes at East Village and up to six holes at Horse Ranch seemed to work reasonably well. After more detailed studies that were conducted subsequent to the East Village approvals,the Aspen Skiing Company determined, in a January 4, 1999 letter from Pat O'Donnell, CEO of the Aspen Skiing Company and addressed to the Town Council(attached),that the East Village parcel is generally acknowledged to not be optimal for allowing three golf holes with the required buffer areas to be constructed and that the additional nine holes of golf should be accommodated on the Horse Ranch parcels which will allow the golf course to be routed more efficiently and a new golf clubhouse to be centrally located off of Brush Creek Road. Snowmass Land Company Remaining Land Ownership The agreement executed at the end of December 1999, with the Aspen Skiing Company's purchase of the Snowmass Land Company's(SLC) holdings at the base of Fanny Hill,has marked the beginning of a transition for the SLC. This application represents the final development project for the SLC. Snowmass Land Company Design Workshop,Inc. March 20,2000 Written Description Owl Creek Townhomes Pre-Sketch Plan Worksession p.3 The SLC is bringing to a close a 12-year community-building history in the Town. The SLC has developed some of the Town's highest-quality subdivisions with virtually no disruption to the community or any financial difficulties or burdens to the Town. SLC is proud of what we have contributed to the community both in the quality of our developments and the cash, housing and land contributions to the Town. Neighborhoods such as the Divide, Horse Ranch, Two Creeks, and The Pines were created by the SLC and the sales of these properties within those neighborhoods have contributed over$2.3 million in Real Estate Transfer Tax to the Town. These neighborhoods brought other community benefits in the form of employee housing(land and $150,000 to create the Crossings neighborhood, land and$300,000 to create the Mountain View neighborhood), ski improvements(Two Creeks base,additional ski runs,nordic trail extensions),and parks and open space(650 acres in Horse Ranch,200 acres in Hidden Valley, 5 acres for a town park,trail easements throughout the Town,and financial contributions of over $1.5 million, including$500,000 earmarked for town park improvements). The SLC has also been a major contributor to the community in other areas. The SLC is a supporter of the Anderson Ranch Arts Center,provided Fanny Hill for Summer Concert series use, provided the use of Horse Ranch property for the balloon festival and summer fire works shows,provided the land for the Town's Public Works Maintenance facility,and has contributed financially towards worthwhile public infrastructure improvements. Unique Opportunity for Anderson Ranch SLC would like to close out their development rote in Snowmass Village by including a significant, if not unprecedented,boost for one of the most noteworthy cultural institutions in our community,the Anderson Ranch. The SLC recognizes the importance of the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in this application. A community's longer term contribution is in the cultural art it gives civilization and the expansion of the Anderson Ranch into a more complete world- renowned center for visiting and resident artists to produce and teach their craft,here in Snowmass Village will enhance this center and the contribution of the Town of Snowmass in the international arts community. Despite their success,or perhaps because of it,the Anderson Ranch Arts Center has reached a significant obstacle—they are out of land. The Arts Center campus is fully developed,having implemented a master plan that makes the best use of their available land resources. The Arts Center is in a difficult position of not being able to meet the demand for programs. In addition, the increasing costs of housing makes it difficult for key staff to afford to live within the town. The SLC is proposing the dedication of approximately 2 acres of land to the Anderson Ranch Arts Center. This land will provide the opportunity for an expanded campus to meet identified program needs. In addition to the land dedication,the SLC is also providing planning and design services to the Arts Center in sufficient detail to proceed through the land use approvals process. The SLC will also provide a significant financial contribution to the proposed capital improvements. Unique Opportunity for the Community Community comprehensive plans outline a long-term vision that a community holds for itself. An assessment of what the community has been and what it wants to be,framed within a context of opportunities known at the time is a key component of the plan's development. The Snowmass land Company Design Workshop, Inc. March 20,2000 Written Description Owl Creek Townhomes Pre-Sketch Plan Worksession p.4 comprehensive plans which have served their communities most successfully are those which are flexible enough to respond to changing conditions and unforeseen opportunities. Twelve years ago,the SLC acquired the property from the FDIC,having seen it go through repeated financial difficulties that continually impacted the community and ultimately ending up in the hands of the federal government through foreclosure. Back then,t would have been difficult to anticipate that the SLC would now be bowing out as a major developer of the Snowmass community. But we are in just that position. In so doing,there is a unique opportunity for the entire community and its future list of priorities. That is the 100 acres of Horse Ranch land owned by SLC and subject to a golf reservation for no more than six holes. This land is the last large usable acreage in the Town environs that could be the home of all of the priorities that are part of the community vision. A contribution to the Town of the Horse Ranch, free and clear of any use limitations or deed restrictions would allow the Town to be the master of its own destiny to serve the populace by providing the land to pursue,as they see fit,each and everyone of its priorities whether they be expanded park, playing fields, swimming facility, community center, improvements to the Snowmass entrance, including improved vehicle circulation and transit service,a permanent home and improved outdoor venue for Jazz Aspen, the Snowmass Institute,as well as any other potential non-profits just to name a few. Best of all, the land acquisition would be at no cost to the Town or financial burden on its citizens. Along with the land dedication of 100 acres,the water rights for the property will be given to the Town, the golf reservation will be removed, and the deed restrictions on the Town Parcel or"school site"will be lifted,to give it fully unrestricted use and market value. The golf reservation requires SLC's approval for more than six holes to be located on the property.It is clear,that unrestricted ownership of the land,which SLC is proposing, means the Town owns the land and the entire "bundle of rights"that goes with ownership including use as they determine is fitting. The attached chart and map, entitled"Master Plan," detail the complete land donation package. Sketch Plan Review Criteria It is difficult to review this proposal against the criteria outlined in the Town of Snowmass Village Land Use and Development Code. This proposal represents a unique opportunity for the Town whose benefits will exceed the benefits that are identified through the application of the review criteria. Information to elaborate on the benefits of this proposal has been provided to supplement this review and a conceptual site plan,"Option l," is attached The proposed Uses on the parcel are appropriate for the neighborhood. The townhomes will be very similar in character and use patterns to the existing Owl Creek Townhomes. Ownership of the homes will be similar to the ownership of the existing townhomes. These will be primarily second homes for most owners,will likely not be rented for short periods of time, and will,as a result,place little demand on community services and facilities. The proposed improvements are consistent with the Comprehensive Plan in that they are residential and community facility types of use recognized and codified by the Town. These use types are also recognized within the existing Planned Unit Development land use designation. There is no build out specified for Lot 3, Parcel A by which to measure the parcel's capacity to accept development. This application proposes a program that can be accommodated on the parcel without negative impacts, and also proposes a package of community benefits that justify approving the full program. Snowmass Land Company Design Workshop,Inc. March 20,2000 Written Description Owl Creek Townhomes Pre-Sketch Plan Worksession P.5 The proposed Architecture and Landscape will be nearly identical to the design of the existing Owl Creek Townhomes' architecture and landscape. Similar building massing, scale, and materials palette will be used. Slight modifications are likely to be made to the structures to best fit them to the site's topographic features. The townhome design is very well received by Owl Creek Townhome owners and neighboring community members, and there are no plans to alter the design other than the slight modifications. The site planning and landscape design will also be nearly identical to that of the existing Owl Creek Townhomes with the exception of the density. The density will be significantly less than that of the existing Owl Creek Townhomes—.87 du/ac compared to 2.5-3.5 du/ac for the existing Owl Creek Townhomes. Minor improvements in the landscape design, such as better screened utility boxes and improved access to adjacent parking spaces,are also planned. Approximately 95 percent(17.39 acres)of the townhome site area will be left as general open space. Area totaling approximately 1 acre of the site, including an existing ski easement and the front entrance area of the site, will be dedicated open space. This area will be dedicated to the Town and the Owl Creek and Fox Run HOAs. The remainder of the common open space will be under the control of the HOA for the proposed townhomes. The package of community benefits also includes additional parcels that will be dedicated to the Town,or existing East Village homeowners groups,as open space or community use parcels. The proposed dedication of open space included in this application far exceeds a threshold of"appropriateness"and the locations of these parcels make most easily accessible and significant contributions to the Town's open space system. Wetlands exist on the parcel as a Natural Resource, and are identified on the attached"Survey" plan. The extent of the wetlands was delineated as part of the original East Village PUD work and impacts made at that time were mitigated. The proposed improvements are located outside of the wetland area to avoid impacts and thus the need for mitigation. There are no Hazard areas within the parcel. The proposed Access and Circulation system focuses on supporting existing infrastructure wherever possible. Vehicle access to the proposed townhomes is from existing Two Creeks Drive and impacts to the drive are kept to a minimum with two egress points. Vehicle access to the proposed Anderson Ranch Arts Center is from Burnt Mountain Circle. Limited Parking spaces are located adjacent to the Arts Center buildings for disabled access, deliveries,and service. The remaining parking demand is accommodated in the existing Two Creeks parking lot. There is a great opportunity for the shared use of this lot between skiing in the winter and the Arts Center in the summer. A new pedestrian connection is proposed between the parking lot and the Arts Center. The existing pedestrian and bicycle path through the parcel is retained and shifted towards Two Creeks Drive. Residents and users of the proposed neighborhood will have direct access to the path. The path intersects with the heavily used path located along Owl Creek Road, creating a clear connection between the proposed neighborhood and the Arts Center main campus. The proposed improvements include Employee Housing for key senior staff at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center. There are anticipated to be two residential units. The SLC also has successfully contributed to bringing over one hundred units of employee housing on-line within the Town. These units were provided much earlier than the need demanded,and as a result the SLC received employee housing credits. The SLC anticipates using a portion of these credits to further mitigate the need to provide additional employee housing units derived from impacts created by the proposed improvements. Snowmass Land Company Design Workshop,Inc. March 20,2000 Written Description Owl Creek Townhomes Pre-Sketch Plan Worksession p.6 The development Timetable anticipates constructing the proposed improvements in two phases. The existing Owl Creek Townhomes were also constructed in phases and the applicant's development experience warrants proceeding on such a timetable. It is expected that the development of the townhomes and Arts Center will occur in tandem. The parcel will be subdivided through the approval process to allow the Anderson Ranch Arts Center to become the owners of the parcel on which the improvements will be constructed. As outlined in this written description and demonstrated throughout this application,the Community Welfare of the town stands to greatly benefit by the proposed improvements. In exchange for approvals to construct a neighborhood of townhomes of a quality and character already demonstrated to the Town and favorably received by the neighboring community,the Town stands to gain an unprecedented package of community benefits. Removing the physical impediments to the expansion of the Anderson Ranch Arts Center,providing the property for the Town to realize their goals for an exceptional community and recreation center,giving Jazz Aspen an opportunity for a permanent home,and providing the Town and adjacent homeowner groups with the dedication of open space parcels are incredible benefits for the community to achieve.

Michael Manchester, Mayor Town Council Members Town of Snowmass Village Post Office Box 5010 Snowmass Village, Colorado 81615 Dear Mayor and Council Members: As you consider the resolution allowing the Snowmass Club to file a preliminary application I would like to affirm the importance of this project to our company. The ability to proceed with the phasing as proposed since our first meeting with the Town in November of 1996 is critical to our ability to continue. Our ownership is willing to take the risk in proceeding with Phase I to create an economically viable operation as well as providing much-needed employee housing. However, we can not commit to an additional nine-holes of golf as a condition to approval of Phase 1. We will agree to the following in reference to golf: 1. Commencement of hole-by-hole design on or before the sale of 180 of 210 fractional interests in Phase I. This would be conditioned on the Town's commitment in waiting to instruct Snowmass Land Company to transfer title of the Horse Ranch lands reserved for golf to the town or us. If transferred to the town we would require an easement executed on our behalf. A binding agreement on a method of determining the value of any lands proposed for exchange (softball field and school site) would also be necessary. 2. Apply for preliminary approval of Phase II on or before the sell out of 210 Phase I fractional interests. 3. Commence construction of Phase II and associated amenities upon pre-sale of 1/3 of fractional interests in Phase II. 4. If 180 sales in Phase I are not achieved by Junel, 2002 applicant shall not be required to make application for Phase II. It is our intention to construct both phases of the proposed redevelopment as well as to continue to operate the Club, but we will not expend the additional capital required to expand golf until certain the funds are generated from the sales of Phase I fractional interests. We share the Town's interest in golf. however the economics of Phase I do not support the cost of the additional holes. We are confident that both Phases will proceed, but we must do so in a prudent business manner. Post O(8rr Boe 1 248 -Aipeu.CO 81512 970.Y25.1220 To address the other areas of concern brought up at the last Council meeting we will agree to the following: • Parking: The assumptions questioned in the traffic and circulation report during the sketch plan process are being revised by Felsberg Holt& Ullevig to address concerns raised and will be included in the preliminary application. Additionally, we will add 80 temporary parking spaces below the existing tennis courts in Phase I to accommodate construction and additional employee housing parking. If Phase II application is not made by June 1, 2002 as outlined above. applicant will convert 40 spaces to permanent parking and reconstruct the two tennis courts removed in phase I. This would result in permanent parking for 347 vehicles compared to 200 today. • Softball field: The softball field will continue to be made available on a year by year basis to the town for softball and Jazz Aspen Snowmass. Because of the present uncertainty of the final use for this land we will not agree to transfer title to the town at this time. Too many factors remain unresolved regarding the entry plan. Among these unknown issues are: whether the town is interested in the land exchange for the school site, or if an entry plan is adopted. the lands needed by the town are different than the current boundaries of the softball field. • Affordable access to the Club: As previously stated in joint and sketch plan reviews current members of the Club will only see inflationary increases in dues and will not be forced to pay additional initiation fees to maintain their memberships. We will not guarantee annual memberships will be offered in the future. As required by ordinance golf tee times will continue to be available to the general public and resort guests. • Use of golf reservation in East Village: After considering over ten routing options proposed by Nugent Associates and Palmer Course Design,we felt the use of the lands reserved for golf in East Village was not feasible for the following reasons: a) distances between the holes on the existing course and East Village were too long and would slow play, b) Two Creeks Drive was placed in the middle of lands originally anticipated as a golf hole due to unforeseen wetlands issues, c) mitigation of other wetlands disturbed used up the landing area of another originally contemplated hole, d) only two holes will now fit on the available lands rather than the three originally contemplated and e) on one of these holes the green would be located directly under the Creekside ski trail rendering it unusable until late May to early June because of the compacted snow and damage due to grooming equipment. For the above reasons we have concluded all nine holes of golf would be placed in Horse Ranch. • Continued restaurant operations: We understand that a quality Food and Beverage operation is critical to any outstanding club. The availability of these facilities is paramount to our ability to market both the fractional interests proposed as well as memberships in the club. Typically food and beverage operations in a club do not make money, but are operated as an amenity to the club,which we intend to continue as part of our ongoing operation of the club. I trust these clarifications will allow us to file a Preliminary Application for Phase I. If not, we will pursue other options.

Box 6119 Snowmass Village, CO 81615 Dear Norman, At our March 17, 2000 Board of Directors meeting we passed a vote to support moving forward on the proposal outlined below. We understand you have offered to deed to Anderson Ranch Arts Center approximately three acres in the vicinity of the Two Creeks Ski lift on a site known as Parcel A, Lot 3. You have also offered cash support of approximately$1.2 million to underwrite construction of facilities on this site. In exchange,we are expected to develop an artistic program for use of such property and facilities and to be available to answer questions and provide information germane to this proposal through the land use planning process. Anderson Ranch Arts Center has considered how this offer might benefit its mission for program development, community outreach and staff housing. We have determined that this proposal, in the form presented and through the process outlined (see attached)would be of great benefit to our organization. The Board of Directors of the Anderson Ranch Arts Center is grateful to the Snowmass Land Company for this offer.At the same time,we appreciate, respect and encourage the requirement of the Town of Snowmass Village to conduct a thorough and fair review of any application for land development approval. We understand and support this process which takes into consideration the needs and concerns of neighbors and the community at large, and one which requires an evaluation of the applicant's consistency with the town's comprehensive plan.Although Anderson Ranch would clearly benefit from an approval that includes an leax xr Txtlx" xaxo"r NxxeO expanded site for its facilities,we prefer to remain neutral and trust the review process will produce the result that is in the best interest of the community. sarcJa.,:a.,: xaoxsx, ,a,u P;r- ....

Box 5010 Snowmass Village, Colorado 81615 RE: APPLICATION TO ALLOW ADDITIONAL USE FOR KRABLOONIK PROPERTY UNDER THE DIVIDE LAND USE PLAN MAP Dear Ms. Giannola: We represent, and are the authorized agent and attomey-in-fact for, MacEachen Holdings, LLC,a Colorado limited liability company(hereinafter"MacEachen''). MacEachen is the ownerof Lot 45, The Divide PUD, located in Snowmass Village, Colorado, on which is located the Krabloonik Restaurant and Dog Kennels (hereinafter the "Property"). This letter and attached exhibits shall serve as MacEachen's preliminary application to the Town to request amendment of the list of allowed uses for the Property as set forth on The Divide PUD Land Use Plan Map. As you know. MacEachen had initially intended to submit this application pursuant to Section 16A-5-250 of the Town of Snowmass Village Land Use Code relating to administrative modifications to an existing PUD. While MacEachen still feels that the requested amendment toThe Divide Land Use Plan is permissible under the administrative modification provisions of the Town Land Use Code,MacEachen has agreed to submit this application for review by the Town during its May 30 work session in order for the Town Council and Planning Commission to review the issues in detail and eventually recommend the ultimate procedure under which MacEachen shall pursue those requests set forth below. 1. BACKGRO 1Nn The use of the Property is governed by that document known as The Divide Land Use Plan Map(hereinafter"Land Use Map"). The Land Use Plan Map was approved as part of the Final Land 1ECEIVED MAY - 2 2000 FREILICH.MYLER.LEMER&CARLISLE Ms. Victoria Giannola May 4. 2000 Page 3 3. Single Family Dwelling Parameters In regard to the single family residential use herein sought to be included as an allowed use for the Property,MacEachen would request the following parameters to be attached to such allowed use: a. The ability to construct two (2) separate single family dwellings on the Property,the square footage of each dwelling not to exceed 4,200 square feet; or b. The ability to construct one (1) single family dwelling on the Property, the square footage of which would not exceed 5.500 square feet. Additionally,all other dimensional parameters applicable to other Divide PUD single family dwellings as set forth in the Land Use Map would apply to such dwellings. 4. Annlication for Building permit to Expand Existing Property. Deed Rest ictionc MacEachen plans to submit to the Town a building permit application in order to expand and modify the restaurant currently located upon the Property. The proposed expansion of the Krabloonik Restaurant contemplates an additional 1,700 square feet of space for a total restaurant square footage of 4,426 (an addition of 30 seats), which additional space is a use by right and allowed under the Land Use Map. At the time the original restaurant was constructed on the Property adequate employee housing related to the commercial components of the Property was provided, including a separate apartment unit and two (2) bunk rooms with a total of 7 beds utilized primarily for winter use comprising a total of 1,056 square feet. As an allowed use under the Land Use Map,MacEachen is entitled to build up to 2,900 square feet of employee housing upon the Property. While MacEachen is not required to provide any further employee housing upon the Property in connection with the proposed expansion of the restaurant,' MacEachen is willing to provide an additional 800 square feet of employee housing on the Property in connection with the contemplated ' See Condition No. 9 of the Land Use Parameters for Parcel D set forth on the Land Use Map which states: Expansion or modification of existing structures shall require approval of the Town Council regarding architectural design only. FREILICH.MYLER.LEITNER&CARLISLE Ms. Victoria Giannola May 4, 2000 Page 5 Allowing exclusively residential uses on the Property would not increase but would rather decrease trip generation and the demand for public facilities. Furthermore, we are aware of no condition or representation made in connection with approval of the Divide PUD that would require that Lot 45 only be used for commercial purposes. Based on the foregoing,it appears to us that the application can be processed under the Land Use Code's administrative modification procedures. 6. Submittal Information For purposes of submitting information pertinent to this application and per our discussion of April 26,I have attached hereto most of that information required under the Town's administrative modification provisions which have been collected or produced to date. Should the Town ultimately decide that this application may proceed under the administrative modification provisions of the Land Use Code,or any other section of the Land Use Code,all submittal information required under the particular provisions selected by the Town shall be immediately submitted to the Town for its review and assistance in processing the application. a. Pre-Application Conference A pre-application conference as recommended in Section 16A-5-250(b)(1)was held between the applicant and the Town of Snowmass Village Planning Director on April 26,2000. b.

TO PERMIT AN ATHLETIC CLUB FACILITY ADDITION ADJACENT TO THE TIMBERLINE CONDOMINIUM POOL AREA. WHEREAS, Timberline Condominium Association Inc. ("Applicant"), has applied for a minor amendment to the Timberline S.P.A. to permit a 1,512 sq. ft. athletic club facility addition, including laundry room, mechanical space and meeting room, adjacent to the Timberline Condominium pool area (the "Project"), as shown and described within Exhibit "A"; and WHEREAS, the Timberline Condominiums ("Timberline") are currently within the SPA—1 Specially Planned Area zone district; and WHEREAS, the Project received approval of a "Precise Plan of a Specially Planned Area" in 1980 as part of discussions with the Town Council relating to the placement of the Timberline Maintenance facility within Town Parking Lot No. 13; and WHEREAS, discussions, site visits and pre-application conferences by previous Planning Directors with the Applicant concerning the Project directed that this application could be considered as a minor SPA modification pursuant to Section 16A-5-390; and WHEREAS, it has been determined that an SPA Land Use Plan, specifying the existing zoning parameters for the Timberline, had not been recorded; and WHEREAS, Ordinance No. 11, Series of 1999, amended the manner in which above grade decks are calculated such that the Project, which is proposed to be located beneath an existing above grade deck, will be actually creating less than 500 sq. ft:of new calculable floor area; and WHEREAS, the current Planning Director determined that although the Project could be evaluated as an Interim SPA Administrative Modification, it would be acceptable to process the Applicant's proposal as a Minor SPA amendment; and TC Ord.00-14 Page 2 WHEREAS, the Planning Commission considered the Project as a Minor SPA amendment and unanimously recommended approval at their April 19, 2000 meeting; and WHEREAS, a public hearing was held before the Town Council on May 30, 2000 to receive public comment; and WHEREAS, the Town Council has heard a presentation by the applicant and the recommendation by the Town staff regarding the Applicant's proposal. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED, by the Town Council of the Town of Snowmass Village, as follows: Section One: Findings. The Town Council finds as follows: 1. The applicant has submitted sufficient information pursuant to Section 16A-5-390(2)(b) of the Municipal Code to permit the Town Staff and the Planning Commission an adequate review of the proposal. 2. All public notification requirements for an application of this type, as specified within Section 16A-5-60(b) of the Municipal Code, have been satisfied. 3. The application, subject to satisfying the conditions stated below, is consistent with the applicable review standards specified within Section 16A-5-390(3) of the Municipal Code. 4. As a Minor SPA Amendment, the applicant should be required to prepare an Interim Site Development and Land Use Plan, as defined in Section 16A-2-20, for review by Town Staff and recording, at applicant's expense, with the Pitkin County Clerk and Recorder. 5. For the purpose of determining the restricted housing job generation rate as part of the employee housing mitigation formula within the 1,512 sq. ft. addition: 1) 426 sq. ft. should considered as a "Health Club" (1.47 jobs/1,000 sq. ft.); 2) the 500 sq. ft. Meeting Room should be considered as "Conference Center" (0.97 jobs/1,000 sq. ft.); and 3) the remaining 586 sq. ft. should be classified under "Multi-Family" as support facilities to the overall condominium project. Since that job generation rate for Multi-Family is calculated on a "per unit" basis and no additional units are being created, mitigation of that area within the project is not required. TC Ord.00-14 Page 3 426 s.f. @ 1.47 jobs per 1,000 s.f. = 0.626 jobs generated 500 s.f. @ 0.97 jobs per 1,000 s.f. = 0.485 jobs generated (1.111/1.3 jobs per employee)X 411 s.f. = 351.25 s.f. mitig. hsg. required. Section 16A-4-420(4)(c) of the Municipal Code provides that the Applicant may pay cash-in-lieu rather than provide the required amount of mitigation housing. Mountain View Phase II was determined to cost approximately $159.00 per square foot of employee housing constructed and the project was completed approximately one (1) year ago. Using this figure plus three percent (3.0%) C.P.I., the cash-in-lieu would be $57,524.00 for this project. Section Two: Action. The Town Council hereby grants approval of a minor amendment to the Timberline S.P.A. to permit an athletic club facility addition adjacent to the Timberline Condominium pool area (the "Project"), as shown and described within Exhibit "A". Further, any approval shall be subject to the conditions stated in Section Three below. Section Three: Conditions. The approval shall be subject to the following conditions: 1. This approval is strictly limited to the athletic club facility addition as specifically described and shown within Exhibit "A". Materials and colors shall be consistent with the current Timberline facilities. 2. No modifications to the Project are permitted without further Planning Commission and Town Council approval. 3. The proposed addition cannot extend beyond the Applicant's property boundary without landowner authorization. This applies to the ski slope side of the project where any possible encroachment will be below grade. The Aspen Skiing Company has agreed to permit the encroachment to occur provided the ski slope is restored to its current condition. The area shall be restored prior to final building permit inspection. 4. This approval is subject to the construction management plan attached hereto as Exhibit "B". The size and location of the roll-off dumpster and the manner in which the refuse material will be contained and removed from the site will be subject to the requirements of the Town Public Works Department. TC Ord.00-14 Page 4 5. Within sixty (60) days of the effective date of this ordinance, the Applicant shall prepare and submit to the Community Development Department an Interim Site Development and Land Use Plan, as defined in Section 16A-2-20, for review by Town Staff and recording, at applicant's expense, with the Pitkin County Clerk and Recorder. 6. The Applicant shall provide prior to obtaining a building permit or within sixty (60) days from the effective date of this Ordinance, whichever occurs first, cash-in-lieu in the amount of $57,524.00 to satisfy the employee housing mitigation requirement for this project.

Jobsite File i I ! - Mgt.Plan Tkn6arW*2 of= COUNCIL COMMUNIQUE Meeting Date: May 30, 2000 Presented By: Planning Division Chris Conrad, Senior Planner Subject: First Reading: Ordinance No. 13, Series of 2000, an ordinance amending the Timberline Condominium Maintenance Facility S.P.A. to permit a 264 sq. ft. addition to the building located in Town Parking Lot 13 for expanded wireless service facilities. Overview: AT&T Wireless Services has requested approval to construct a 12' X 22' addition to the parking lot side of the Timberline Maintenance facility located within Town Parking Lot 13. They received approval from the Town Planner in 1993 to place their current communication equipment beneath the deck located on the uphill side of the building. This will be removed and the new proposed addition will contain expanded facilities needed to address future wireless service demands. Their antennas will remain atop the main condominium building located opposite the parking lot. A land lease was granted by the Town to the Timberline Condominium Association in 1986 which described the portion of Lot 13 within which the maintenance facility could be located. Specific permitted uses were listed and the lease terminates in March, 2007. Although the proposed addition will be contained within the land area of the lease, both the lease and Timberline Condominium Maintenance Facility SPA Plan, approved in 1986, will need to be amended to permit the proposed use. The Town Council, as land owner, provided consent during the April 24 council meeting for the land use application to be processed by staff. Any re-negotiation of the Timberline lease should be handled as a separate discussion item from their land use application but may occur during the period the Minor SPA Amendment application is being processed. The enclosed ordinance specifies that the lease will need to be amended or other written agreement obtained prior to the issuance of a building permit for the Applicant's proposal. Recommendation: The Planning Commission will not have an opportunity to discuss this item until their June 7 meeting. Staff recommends discussion occur regarding this Minor SPA Amendment land use application. The Town Council may then either grant First Reading approval or continue this item until Planning Commission comments are received.

FT. ADDITION TO THE BUILDING LOCATED IN TOWN PARKING LOT 13 FOR EXPANDED WIRELESS SERVICE FACILITIES. WHEREAS, Town Council Ordinance No. 13, Series of 1986, established the original Timberline Condominium Maintenance Facility S.P.A. plan ("SPA Plan"); and WHEREAS, Ordinance No. 16, Series of 1986, approved a twenty (20) year lease to permit the construction and use by the Timberline Condominium Association Inc. ("Lessee") of said Maintenance Facility within Town Parking Lot 13; and WHEREAS, the SPA Plan was amended by Ordinance No. 17, Series of 1990, to permit a two (2) bedroom employee housing unit within the upper story of the Maintenance Facility; and WHEREAS, administrative approval was granted in 1993 by the Planning Director to permit the placement of cellular equipment beneath a deck located on the southerly (uphill) side of the Maintenance Facility; and WHEREAS, the cellular transmission antennas are located on the roof of the main Timberline Condominiums building; and WHEREAS, AT&T Wireless Services ("Applicant") and the Lessee have now applied for a minor amendment to SPA Plan to permit a 264 sq. ft. addition to the Maintenance Facility for expanded wireless service equipment facilities (the "Project"), as shown and described within Exhibit"A"; and WHEREAS, the Applicant's proposal does not involve the relocation or modification of the existing antenna facilities; and WHEREAS, the Planning Director has determined that the proposed Project may be considered as a minor SPA modification pursuant to Section 16A-5-390 of the Snowmass Village Municipal Code (the "Municipal Code"); and WHEREAS, the Planning Commission will consider the Applicant's proposal at their June 7, 2000 meeting; and WHEREAS, a public hearing will be held before the Town Council on June 5, 2000 to receive public comment; and TC Ord.00-13 Page 2 WHEREAS, Second Reading of this Ordinance will occur on June 21, 2000; and WHEREAS, the Town Council has heard a presentation by the applicant and the recommendation by the Town staff regarding the Applicant's proposal. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED, by the Town Council of the Town of Snowmass Village, as follows: Section One: Findings. The Town Council finds as follows: 1. The applicant has submitted sufficient information pursuant to Section 16A-5- 390(2)(b) of the Municipal Code to permit the Town Staff and the Planning Commission an adequate review of the proposal. 2. All public notification requirements, as specified within Section 16A-5-60(b) of the Municipal Code, will be satisfied relating to the Public Hearing scheduled to occur June 5. 3. The application, subject to satisfying the conditions stated in Section Four below, is consistent with the applicable review standards specified within Section 16A-5-390(3) of the Municipal Code. 4. The use of the proposed addition will be to house cellular transmission equipment which will require only periodic maintenance by AT&T personnel. For the purpose of determining the restricted housing job generation rate as part of the employee housing mitigation formula, the 264 sq. ft. addition should considered at a job generation rate based on an assumption that the average amount of time spent performing maintenance would not exceed 4 hours per month. On that basis, the job generation rate would be 0.09 jobs per 1,000 square feet and the mitigation amount would be determined as follows: 264 sq.ft. @ 0.09 jobs per 1,000 s.f. = 0.024 jobs generated (0.012/1.3 jobs per employee) X 411 s.f. = 7.59 s.f. mitig. hsg. required. Section 16A-4-420(4)(c) of the Municipal Code provides that the Applicant may pay cash-in-lieu rather than provide the required amount of mitigation housing. Mountain View Phase II was determined to cost approximately $159.00 per square foot of employee housing constructed and the project was completed approximately one (1) year ago. Using this figure plus three percent (3.0%) C.P.I., the cash-in-lieu would be $1,243.01 for this project. 6. No building permit should be issued, or development permitted to occur, unless written authorization has been obtained from the Town of Snowmass Village as land owner. TC Ord.00-13 Page 3 Section Two: Action. The Town Council hereby grants approval of a minor amendment to the Timberline S.P.A. to permit a 264 sq. ft. addition to the Maintenance Facility for expanded wireless service equipment facilities (the "Project"), as shown and described within Exhibit "A". Further, the SPA Plan shall be amended as described in Section Three below and these approvals shall be subject to the conditions stated in Section Four below. Section Three: SPA Plan Amendment. The "Permitted Uses" specified within Exhibit "A" of Town Council Ordinance No. 13, Series of 1986, which established the original Timberline Condominium Maintenance Facility S.P.A. plan, are hereby amended to read as follows: 2. Permitted Uses Maintenance, laundry, housekeeping operations, general storage, enclosed cellular/wireless communication equipment not to include antenna reception or transmission devices two (2) bedroom employee housing unit, kitm-han in be 'Aili maintenance and shop facilities. [Underline.emphasis indicates uses that have been added pursuant to Ordinance No. 17, Series of 1990, and this Ordinance. The stricken text was deleted by Ordinance No. 17.] Section Four: Conditions. The approval shall be subject to the following conditions: 1. This approval is strictly limited to the 264 sq. ft. wireless service equipment facility addition as specifically described and shown within Exhibit "A". Materials and colors shall be consistent with the current Maintenance Building. 2. No modifications to the Project are permitted without further Planning Commission and Town Council approval. 3. No work is authorized unless consistent with the terms and conditions of Ordinance No. 16, Series of 1986 (the lease), or such other written agreement as may be adopted by Town Council relating to the lessee's use of the subject property. The Lessee will need to secure this agreement prior to building permit issuance to construct the proposed addition. 4. The applicant shall provide a construction management plan identifying material and/or equipment storage areas, describing how refuse material will be contained within and removed from the site and hours of operation for review and approval by the Town Planning Director prior to building permit issuance. TC Ord.00-13 Page 4 5. The Applicant shall provide prior to building permit issuance or within sixty (60) days from the effective date of this ordinance, whichever occurs first, cash-in-lieu in the amount of $1,243.01 to satisfy the employee housing mitigation requirement for this project. 6. The Town Council reserves the right to rescind this ordinance if a building permit for the Project, as described in Exhibit "A", is not obtained and the above conditions satisfied within sixty (60) days from the effective date of this ordinance.

HISTORY: The Snowmass Club Phase II Sketch Plan is the submission of the second phase of the Snowmass Club PUD which follows the submission of Phase I of the Snowmass Club. OVERVIEW: The Aspen Skiing Company proposes to continue its master plan for the Snowmass Club site through Phase II re-development of the Snowmass Club, construction of 30 fractional ownership condominiums, upgrade of the 18-hole golf course, construction of a golf and tennis clubhouse, construction of an indoor tennis facility, upgrade and replacement of parking provisions, upgrade of the road network, upgrade of pedestrian circulation, improvements to Brush Creek, and an unsettled provision for community services. The Applicant is proposing 20 three-bedroom units of 2,000 square feet and 10 four- bedroom units of 2,400 square feet for a total of 85,400 square feet for 30 units on Parcel 3 and 4. The Applicant is proposing a 7,000 square foot golf and tennis clubhouse on Parcel 4 to replace the existing tennis bubble. The total square footage for all proposed structures is 79,200. The site is comprised of a total of 219.18 acres. The total of the building coverage and paved area coverage will be 108,600 square feet. The height of the proposed buildings will not exceed the previously approved 44 feet. Twenty-one employees are projected to be generated by the development. Construction of employee housing in Phase I will cover the required mitigation in both Phase I and II of the project. Public Noticing: The Joint Meeting before the Town Council and the Planning Commission was posted in the Snowmass Sun on 29 March 2000. The Public Hearing before the Town Council was published in the Snowmass Sun on 17 May 2000, upon recommendation by the Commission through Resolution 14 to proceed with the sketch plan submittal. See Figure 1, Snowmass Village Town Council Joint Public Meeting and Snowmass Village Town Council Public Meeting. Code Section: Section 16A-5-320 of the Snowmass Village Municipal Code provides for the submission of a Sketch Plan. The application must meet all of the following procedures: 1. Pre-application Conference: The Applicant attended a mandatory pre-application conference on 24 January 1999. 2. Submission of Application: The Applicant submitted a complete application on 24 February 2000. 3. Staff Review: The staff of the Planning Division completed its review on 28 March 2000. 4. Joint Meeting: The Town Council and the Planning Commission held a Joint Meeting of 10 April 2000 at which time the Applicant presented the Sketch Plan proposal. 5. Resolution: The Planning Commission has a scheduled meeting to draft a resolution per staff recommendations on 17 May 2000. 6. Town Council Action: A public hearing before the Town Council is scheduled for 30 May 2000 after 5:00 P.M.. PROCEDURE: "The sketch plan review step is an opportunity for the Town and the applicant to engage in an exploratory discussion of a development proposal, to raise issues and concerns, and to examine alternative approaches to development of the property. It should be expected that the development proposal may evolve during the course of sketch plan review. The questions the Planning Commission and Town Council should consider in a conceptual manner during review of the sketch plan include the following:" 1. Use. Is the use proposed for the property generally appropriate in this location? Is it consistent with the intent of the underlying zone district and the character of surrounding uses? Staff finds that the proposed use of condominiums and golf facilities is appropriate in this location. Golf facilities and clubhouse are existing uses in the area. Staff has determined that the proposal is generally consistent with the intent of the zone district, which shows mixed uses and conservation on the Town of Snowmass Village Official Zone District Map, and the character of surrounding uses. 2. Comprehensive Plan. Is the proposed development generally consistent with the Town's Comprehensive Plan? Is the proposed buildout within the range anticipated for the property? If the applicant proposes a buildout in excess of eighty-five percent (85%) of that identified in the Comprehensive Plan, then are the community purposes the applicant proposes to achieve the appropriate ones for this development to accomplish? Staff finds that the proposed development is consistent with the Town of Snowmass Village Comprehensive Plan's Future Land Use Map, which calls for recreation and mixed use for the site. Staff has determined that the proposed buildout is within the range anticipated for the property since the Snowmass Village Buildout chart contained within the appendix of the Town of Snowmass Village Comprehensive Plan lists a total of 60 future units for Parcel 4. 3. Architecture and landscaping. Are the buildings proposed to be developed in appropriate locations? Are the mass, scale, and density of the buildings generally compatible with the character of the community and that of surrounding buildings? How much of the site is proposed to be common or dedicated open space? Is this an adequate amount of open space and does it appear to be in the appropriate locations? Staff finds that the buildings are proposed in the appropriate locations. Staff has determined that the mass, scale, and density of the buildings are generally comparable in character with the surrounding buildings and the community. The Applicant is proposing that seventy (70%) percent of Parcel 4 remain in open space. Staff concludes that this amount of open space is adequate and that it is in the appropriate location with linkage to neighboring open spaces. The Applicant is proposing the following percentages of open space for Phase II of the project: Parcel 3 = 81% Parcel 4 = 91% Parcel 10 = 99% 4. Natural resource and hazard areas. What are the natural resource and hazard areas on the property? Is mitigation appropriate? The Applicant has identified streams, wetland, and topographic areas and has not indicated any hazard areas on the property. Mitigation is not a part of the Applicant's proposal. The Applicant will need to address wildlife impacts with their proposal for additional golf holes in the Horse Ranch property since wildlife graze in this area. 5. Access and circulation. Are the conceptual location, alignment, and type of entry roads and the primary on-site roads acceptable? Should the applicant provide transportation options for residents, visitors, guests, and employees and, if so, what type of options may be most appropriate? The Town may wish to consider a secondary access from Brush Creek Road. The Applicant shall provide transit locations, shelter, service, and pedestrian connections to the site for the residents, visitors, guests, and employees. 6. Parking. Should the applicant provide on-site parking for the development in compliance with the standards of this Code, or should the applicant reduce parking below these standards, as provided in Section 16A-4-310, Off-Street Parking Standards? The Applicant shall provide on-site parking for the development in compliance with the Land Use and Development Code. The Applicant is proposing to construct 436 permanent parking spaces with Phase II. 7. Timetable. What is the proposed timetable for the development? Is it most appropriate for the development to occur all at once or in phases? If phasing is appropriate, then which portions of the project should proceed first? The Applicant has gained Town approval to submit the development proposal for the Snowmass Club in separate Phases. The Applicant anticipates that construction for Phase II of the Snowmass Club will begin in the fall of 2000 or the spring of 2001 with the golf and tennis clubhouse commencing in 2002. 8. Community welfare. Do the concepts contained in the proposed development promote the public health, safety, and welfare? Staff finds that the proposed development will not impact the public health, safety, and welfare. NEXT STEP: The Town Council shalt consider the Planning Commission's recommendation through Resolution 14 to the Town Council who will render a final decision through resolution based upon the recommendation of the Commission and a review of the staff report, application submittal, and public comment. STAFF RECOMMENDATION: In accordance with Section 16A-5-320(5), this proposed application for a Sketch Plan for Phase II of the Snowmass Club should proceed to a Preliminary Plan application.

Who is responsible for the future maintenance of this facility? If it is to be the developer, this will require a license agreement and the responsibilities for future maintenance should be spelled out. If it is the Intent that the Town will assume ownership and maintenance responsibility, please verify that is the intent. 2. This bridge is proposed to be within 100 feet of the gravel access road to the Snowmass Lodge and Club and, also, appears to be within approximately 250 feet of the Highline Road intersection. I am not familiar with the future plans for this access road, nor the traffic information provided for the traffic loading on Snowmass Club Circle as a result of this project. This bridge will effectively eliminate the possibility of increasing the width of Snowmass Club Circle between the access road and Highline Road. It should be verified that this section of road will not require either a widened normal roadway section or I additional lanes for acceleration or deceleration lanes. I reviewed a set of documents dated May 5, 2000, from Drexel Barrell for the above- referenced facility. Greg Smith, Street Superintendent, and myself reviewed the site in the field. Our comments are as follows: I 1. No replacement section was shown for the asphalt removed. We would require that the removal be sawcut to the full depth of the asphalt. The replacement section should be a minimum of 4” HBPI12" ABC, or match existing section, whichever is greater. Once the patch is made, we would require a thin overlay which tapers a minimum of 20 feet back on either side of the sawcut. I 2.

Provision of restricted housing - provide more restricted housing within the PUD than would otherwise be required for the development by this Development Code, particularly in those priority locations for such housing identified within the Comprehensive Plan. b. Encourage sustainable development - encourage sustainable development within the Town that helps to diversify the mix of lodging, retail, and dining uses and that is consistent with the intent of the Comprehensive Plan. c. Provide open space and/or avoid wildlife habitat- provide necessary site planning flexibility to enable the development to provide,greater open space or to conserve critical wildlife habitat lands. This shall be accomplished in such a way as to maintain these lands as large, contiguous areas. Such lands shall not be fragmented into small, unconnected areas by development, unless the applicant demonstrates that this arrangement will result in the most suitable development pattern for the property, and that the lands providing valued open space or critical wildlife habitat have been protected. Where applicable, connections of such lands on the site to such lands on adjacent properties shall be accomplished. d. Encourage better design - allow for greater variety in the type, design, and layout of buildings. Structures shall be designed to be compatible, in terms of height, mass, scale, orientation, and configuration, with other buildings in the PUD and with surrounding uses, yet shall avoid uniformity of design. Various types of residential uses may be combined within the PUD (when allowed by the underlying zone district); to promote more efficient land use patterns and increased open space. e. Develop necessary public facilities -provide an incentive for an applicant to develop, or contribute to the development of, necessary public facilities, such as public parking and transportation facilities, public recreation facilities and other public facilities. The facilities may be located within, or outside of the PUD, but shall be facilities that meet the needs not only of project residents, but also of other residents of and visitors to the Town.

Box 5010 Snowmass Village,CO 81615 Dear Victoria, I am writing in response to your letter of April 271h to Doug Mackenzie. I have enclosed the requested information. The proposed use, summer horseback trail rides on Snowmass Ski Area, has been in operation for several years in Snowmass. Snowmass Ski Area operates on a Recreation Use Permit. Providing horseback rides for visitors of Snowmass and Aspen meets the demand of guests. Riding horses through the Ski Area is a great way for the guests to experience what Snowmass has to offer. There will be very little impact on the residences surrounding the trail routes and the environmental impact is small as well. Capitol Peak Outfitters has eight rides scheduled per day. These rides vary in length, between one hour and three hours. The rides follow set trails that have been in operation for several years. The number of people on each ride will vary. Capitol Peak Outfitters will take out as few as one person per ride and as many as 25 people per ride. The average number of riders per trip is eight. This would handle between eight and 83 riders per day. The average daily ridership is 64 people. The Aspen Skiing Company will subcontract the operations of the horseback rides to Capitol Peak Outfitters. Capitol Peak Outfitters has been providing quality horseback experiences in the Aspen Valley for 14 years. Steve and Sandy Rieser are the owners and operators of Capitol Peak Outfitters. They have an excellent record in regards to care and safety for their horses, guests and staff. In case of emergency,Capitol Peak Outfitters will have radio communication with the Snowmass Summer Rangers who are on duty daily. They are fully equipped to handle any medical situation that should arise. If further assistance is needed or required due to the incident escalating,the Snowmass Wildcat Fire Department would be the next level of response. Water and restrooms are provided for the staff and guests at the coral area located at the base of the Wood Run ski lift. Food or beverages will not be provided on scheduled rides. Snowmass Ski Area and Capitol Peak Outfitters have abided by, and will abide by, all regulations set forth by the Town Council.

Bernadette.is researching options, which will be brought to Town Council for direction. If this project takes the summer to complete I would suggest we rent or purchase a tent for park users. This not only increases park usage, but protects the park furniture as well. Additionally, we are coordinating with the Aspen Soccer Club to use our field from mid- August through October. As expected, organized soccer is extremely popular and use of our field has been anticipated since park construction. PUBLIC ART Please take a walk down the path of the Woodbridge Stream Restoration project and check out our new art project, "Metamorphosis." The story of the mayfly is being crafted and will appear in the vicinity of the artwork. This is a "discovery piece" and should be popular with children and adults. Many thanks to the Arts Advisory Board and the Public Arts Committee . for their great work. RESIGNATION OF PLANNING DIRECTOR As you know, Victoria Giannola has resigned from her position as Planning Director. This was a personal decision for Victoria and I respect her wishes. Victoria did a great job for the Town during her short tenure, and we wish her the best of luck. Meanwhile, Craig is advertising for a replacement and strategizing workload distribution. Leslie Klusmire, Craig and I are ready to assist with workload in order to ensure continuity. Craig plans on filling the position within 6 weeks. `TOWN COUNCIL RETREAT Given the complexity of current issues in Snowmass Village, I am a firm believer in holding two retreats per year where Council can put their issues on the table, "step back" and view the community's policies, issues and future from the broad perspective. Invariably, the result is a more focused and more effective governing board. Please let me know what dates in July will work for you and staff will make arrangements accordingly. I will be out of Town July 12t through the 15tH 05-25-OOMR Page Two *EXTRA WORK SESSION We need to schedule a separate Work Session to tackle Article V of the Land Use Code and discuss the latest developments of the RTA. Please check your boxes for the latest RTA funding proposal and let me know which date works for you. *TOWN MEETINGS Our next series of town meetings are scheduled for Tuesday, June 13th, at noon and Wednesday June 14th, at 5:30 p.m. in the Town Council Chambers. I've scheduled Joe Kracum for both meeting to present the latest on the Mall Transit Plaza. Are there other topics you would to advertise for discussion? Please let me know. ENTRY SIGN At their May 24th meeting, the County Commissioners tabled the second reading of the sign code amendment until July 12th. The Commissioners directed their staff to meet with Town representatives in an effort to work toward a compromise solution regarding the size and location of the sign. We will let you know when we schedule a field trip. *Response requested INTEROFFICE MEMORANDUM TO: Town Council FROM: Hunt Walker RE: 5/17/00 RFRHA Meeting Update DATE: May 25, 2000 CC: Gary Suiter The Board discussed two significant items at the meeting: 1 . REGIONAL PLANNING AND THE RTA The Board reviewed and concurred with a memo (see attached) prepared by Tom Newland which recommends to the RTA Policy Committee that the RTA be responsible for future long range transit planning including finishing the Corridor Investment Study. 2 . 2001 BUDGET Since the RTA would take over the long range planning function from RFRHA, Tom said he would be presenting a budget at the next RFRHA Board meeting that would reflect the agency' s new focus as a property manager. This means the 2001 budget would be approximately $325, 000 to $375, 000 down from a 2000 budget of approximately $550, 000 . If the RTA doesn' t pass, Tom will have a back up budget to consider. MEMORANDUM TO: RTA Policy Committee FROM: RFRHA Board Tom Newland f Regional Planning and the RTA DATE: May 17, 2000 During our April 201" RFRHA Board meeting we reviewed a multi-year transit strategy that calls for immediate improvements to the existing bus system that are compatible with and implement portions of the rail/bus Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA). After the presentation, the RFRHA Board discussed the strategy and formed a general consensus regarding the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA)and it's relationship to future long range regional planning conducted by the RTA. Our thoughts are summarized below for your consideration: 1. Since 1997 the Valley has been developing a longterm regional transportation plan in partnership with the Colorado Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration. The process for developing this plan is the Corridor Investment Study(CIS). RFRHA has utilized a citizen driven process to make an exhaustive study of the transit options available to the Valley over the next 20 years. The CIS process to date has resulted in a consensus on transit goals, objectives and performance criteria and an understanding of the relationship between long-range community plans and the transportation system. Products of the CIS include a regional travel demand model, detailed transit capital and operating cost and benefit data, a Transit Oriented Community Design Report, and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement(DEIS). 2. Regional transportation planning efforts to date have selected a combination of rail and bus technology as the Locally Preferred Alternative(IPA) to carry forward in the planning process. The LPA was selected from three options (committed projects, best bus, and rail) that are described and compared in the DEIS. The LPA selection resulted from a comparison of the alternatives and a ranking using goals and objectives developed by Citizen Task Forces in each community and adopted by the RFRHA Board. An LPA recommendation was made by each Citizen Task Force and forwarded to the RFRHA Policy 1-7 Committee. The LPA decision was unanimous at the RFRHA Policy Committee and the RFRHA Board. 3. To be eligible for federal funding for transit improvements of any type, the Valley must commit to continuing the regional transportation planning process embodied in the CIS to its conclusion. Before the LPA can be implemented, RFRHA must complete a Final Environmental Impact Statement and obtain a Record of Decision from the Federal Government. This work will include response to citizen, and local, state, and federal agency comment on the DEIS, the development of a phasing plan, preliminary engineering for each phase, and a funding strategy for capital improvements and operations and maintenance. The FEIS and Record of Decision will detail how the LPA is financed, constructed, and operated over time. Once a Record of Decision is issued, the region can negotiate a Full Funding Grant Agreement for federal funding participation in the construction of the transit system based on the approved phasing, schedule and financial strategy. 4. RFRHA is supportive of a phasing plan that includes transit improvements that benefit Valley immediately and that are compatible with and can be incorporated into the Record of Decision and Full Funding Grant Agreement. The "Comprehensive Transit Solution" presented at our last Board meeting is an example of a phasing strategy that can realize the LPA over time while immediately improving transit service in the Roaring Fork Valley. RFRHA believes the Valley should take the best advantage of local, state, and federal resources available to realize immediate transit improvement and leverage long- range transit goals. 5. RFRHA supports the RTA as the appropriate regional entity to carry the CIS long range planning process to its conclusion and to then act as the region's federal grant recipient to implement our transportation future. RFRHA was formed as a "Holding Authority" to manage the Aspen Branch Rail Line property and develop a comprehensive plan for its use. RFRHA was not structured to be the recipient of federal funds or to operate a transit system. The RTA is being shaped today and is proposed to serve these roles. 2s� COUNCIL COMMUNIQUE Meeting Date: May 30, 2000 4:00 PM in a Regular Meeting Presented By: Victoria Giannola, Planning Director Subject: The staff of the Planning Division and the Planning Commission met to discuss issues, which may arise during code administration, regarding the Floor Area Excise Tax.

Mayor Manchester requested that a small model of the project be provided to facilitate planning and discussion. Kracum added that a visual representation would be made available on videotape and on the Town's Internet Website as well. Council directives included multilevel structural features, sufficient access, assurance of vertical circulation, especially through the upper garages, keep Daly Lane turn-around open, consider more diagonal parking in pick-up and drop-off area, add more parking in general, minimize the impact of drainage ditch, implement 200 net new spaces and consider the possibility of selling some of the parking spaces in the upper parking lot(s). LAND USE CODE DISCUSSION Klusmire, Assistant to the Town Manager, summarized the proposed revision to the Housing Mitigation section of Article IV of the Snowmass Village Land Use Code. She presented and explained the revised job generation rates and the formula utilized for 04-10-00ws Page 2 the rates as discussed at the April 3, 2000 Council Work Session as well as revisions made to redevelopment credit. Council discussed the information and requested necessary changes and recommended that the study results be updated annually in accordance with the Land Use Code. Council discussed the sufficiency of livable space, especially in studio and 2-bedroom employee housing units, possible destruction of existing affordable housing units in cases of redevelopment, future funding for construction of new employee housing and the percentage number to be used for employee housing mitigation requirements. Council determined that they would require replacement of the employee housing units at a ratio of one to one. Representatives of the Aspen Skiing Company requested further discussion on these issues before any final decisions are made. The Town Manager explained that a Public Hearing would be scheduled on this issue and comments will be welcomed from the public. PARCEL "N" EMPLOYEE HOUSING DISCUSSION The Housing Manager and Scott Smith of Reno Smith Architects presented revised floor plans for the Parcel "N" employee housing units. Members of the Council and staff minimizing excavation, site retaining walls, overall height and funding sources. They considered fire safety issues, handicap accessibility and square footage of the units, the preliminary development schedule and funding options. They discussed floor plans and possible alterations with reference to both cost and convenience. Council requested that square footage be clearly marked on subsequent floor plans. ENTRYWAY SIGN DISCUSSION Kevin Costello voiced his concerns relative to planning and resistance to the Entryway sign. Council discussed expenditures made to date on this project as well as projected costs, proposed construction schedule, sign placement options and landscaping. WOODRUN DUMPSTER Hunt Walker introduced the new Woodrun Dumpster Conceptual Site Plan. He explained that it would be necessary for the Town to purchase approximately 3,000 square feet of additional land than it currently owns, in order to realize the plan. Some members of the Public expressed their concerns with regards to the proposed location. Council and staff considered the criteria that contribute to the determination of a specific site location. Mercatoris expressed his preference for Site 3A. Hatfield said he would not approve the current proposed location and suggested that Council meet with Woodrun V homeowners before spending any more money on research, plans or preparation. Mayor Manchester said the current proposed location might prove to be the most viable option. He suggested that another option was a location at Village Run Circle Drive although the area would need to be made larger with the use of fill dirt and to accommodate a turn-around area for trash trucks could be difficult. He 04-10-00ws Page 3 recommended that members of Council meet with Wayne Floyd of Woodrun V and discuss options and strategies.

The Work Session began at 1:00 p.m. MALL TRANSIT PLAZA DISCUSSION Joe Kracum of M.K. Centennial, presented revised designs for the Mall Transit Plaza and requested Council approval of the footprint layouts which remained unchanged since the previous meeting. He explained that designing ramps to be used strictly for access and not for parking, along with 90-degree parking, has resulted in the ability to increase the number of parking spaces on the three levels to approximately 300. He explained that surveying is scheduled to begin during the upcoming week and test drilling will begin within the next two weeks. Kracum discussed the location of parking for the handicap and buses, retaining walls, grade, pick-up and drop-off locations. He presented two options for pedestrian access to the structure by means of an underpass or a pedestrian bridge to connect to the elevator. Kracum will meet with the Fire District to determine the need for fire- prevention sprinklers for the enclosed structure. Mark Moebius of the Pokolodi Lodge stated his concern for noise on Snowmelt Road and suggested building a berm between the buildings and Snowmelt Road from Daly Lane past the Center Willows. The group discussed the necessary rfumber of bus stops if Base Village is constructed in the near future, conference space on the top level, paid parking to generate revenues, lighting, landscaping and private sector contributions. Kracum stated that cost estimates would be available the first week of June, 2000. He explained that the goal is to complete the facility during two 04-17-00ws Page 2 construction seasons. Kracum will provide costs for the "deck-over" design for review and discussion at the next meeting.

LAND USE CODE DISCUSSION -ARTICLE V Mayor Manchester requested that Council Members inform staff of changes they wish to make to Article V of the Land Use Code. The Planning Director explained that information related to this issue was not included in Council's packet for this Meeting since Council requested this time to outline their expectations of changes to Article V. Klusmire provided Council with an update regarding areas of Article V currently being addressed by Staff and which will be presented to Council for review and approval at the April 24, 2000 Council Work Session. Other areas being addressed by Staff relate to timeshare properties, Unit Equivalency and Community Benefit. Klusmire explained that the Buildout Chart contained in the Comprehensive Plan is being incorporated into the Land Use Code. Council provided comments to staff and discussed community benefits and issues related to the Buildout Chart. REAL ESTATE TRANSFER TAX UPDATE The Finance Director explained that she has prepared the year-end numbers reflecting Real Estate Transfer Tax (RETT) revenue and expenditures. She explained that the RETT Fund ended 1999 with an additional $1,382,381.37. A portion of this carryover ($784,995.37) amount is reflective of completion of the Bus Storage project in 2000 rather than in 1999 as previously budgeted. The $784,995.37 will be spent in the year 2000 to finish the Bus Storage facility, although the project remains within budget. Bernadette Barthelenghi described changes in the 2000 Project Summary. Taking into consideration the Operations Facility Bus Storage expense to be paid this year and the "Go Colorado" grant received by the Town, the budget identifies approximately $600,000 additional carry-over for 1999. Total carry-over ends up in the amount of $2,327,000. Council discussed the Projects Summary and the overall RETT Fund in relation to a successful real estate year.

She and Council discussed alternatives for the revised Owl Creek Trail Connection and projected costs for trail construction. Barthelenghi suggested using some of the Real Estate Transfer Tax surplus funds. Council considered funding options as well as land use approval negotiations with Guber and the Pitkin County Open Space and Trails representatives. Barthelenghi also summarized plans, cost estimates and funding options for other trail construction or improvement work for the 04-24-00ws Page 2 Spring and Summer of 2000 and requested additional funding of approximately $40,000 to asphalt overlay some of the 2.2 miles of paved trails that are in poor condition.

EMPLOYEE HOUSING GUIDELINES DISCUSSION Joe Coffey explained existing and proposed guidelines. He recommended restructuring guidelines to implement more restrictive Income and Asset Guidelines at the time of purchase.

After further discussion, Council tabled the discussion for further review at a future Work Session. SVRA CONFERENCE CENTER Terry Hunt of Snowmass Village Resort Association (SVRA) summarized existing conditions, market values, plans and potential complications related to construction of a new conference facility. Architect Gary Ross presented preliminary architectural plans in detail. The main concerns expressed were blocking primary views and solar access. Ross commented that although some views would be partially obstructed, the project is sensitive to potential impacts to residents and guests of the Pokolodi Lodge, Snowmass Inn and Mountain Chalet. Solar access would be minimally impacted. Mark Moebius and Mary Harris of the Pokolodi and Snowmass Inn provided comments relative to potential impacts to their properties and expressed concerns about the size and location of the proposed Conference Center and the timing of particular phases of construction. Hatfield suggested the earlier contingency plan of moving replacement parking up to 04-24-00ws Page 3 Parking Lot Nos. 9 and/or 10 to lessen impacts to neighboring properties. Moebius was in favor of the suggestion, at the same time acknowledging that Council majority favored the current plans. Council discussed the pros and cons of the plans, the timing of the project and the future of the community in general. Mr. Hunt and his advisors recommended breaking ground by Spring of the year 2001 with a construction window of approximately 14 months. RURAL TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY (RTA) UPDATE Representatives from 8 local governments attended the most recent all-day RTA meeting. Mayor Manchester presented an update on discussions and opinion surveys conducted thus far. The Roaring Fork Transportation Authority (RFTA) has decided to cut back service due to lack of employees and because current funding and revenue sources are not sufficient to maintain the equipment and current level of service. In recent years RFTA has experienced a budget shortfall of approximately $1.6 million annually. RTA plans include addressing the existing budget shortfalls, attaining cost estimates for increased service on various lines and increasing the total number of buses and frequency of service. Manchester reviewed existing and potential funding sources. He stated that as plans exist today, Sales Tax would be the primary funding source for the RTA. Council discussed the percentages of funding sources from all participating entities, service expansion and voter approval. Mayor Manchester requested that staff verify the amount of funding and funding sources. The Mayor said that the RTA Board is considering whether to allow variable sales tax rates and variable funding sources throughout the different municipalities.

Michael Manchester; Kevin Costello; Jack Hatfield; Douglas Mercatoris COUNCIL MEMBERS ABSENT: Mark Brady was absent. STAFF PRESENT: Gary Suiter, Town Manager; Hunt Walker, Public Works Director; Marianne Rakowski, Finance Director; Craig Thompson, Community Development Director; Chris Conrad, Senior Planner; Rebecca Hariowe, Secretary/Records Manager PUBLIC PRESENT: Madeleine Osberger, Chris Kiley, Bill Kane, Keith Long, Sarah Chung and other members of the public interested in today's Agenda items. The Work Session began at 2:09 p.m. 1999 FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Jack Schroeder from Van Schooneveld and Company summarized the data contained in the Preliminary Draft of the General Purpose Financial Statements and independent audit for the Town of Snowmass Village. Cash investments, receivables and deferred revenue have increased since 1998. Council focused on the equity and the balance of the various funds: the General Fund total balance, the reserve portion of the balance and how much of that is reserved for Open Space, Conservation Easement or Debt Service retirement as well as the 3-percent Tabor Emergency Reserve. The designated fund balance ($3,168,000) is primarily reserved for capital improvements with the majority ($2,008,000) for capital equipment and a significant portion ($385,000) reserved in case of economic downturn. The undesignated fund balance is ($866,000) down from 1998. Most of the special revenue funds are reserved primarily for landscape projects. The Debt Service Reserve Fund Balance is reserved for the retirement of debt. The Combined Statement of Revenues and Expenses showed an increase in Real Estate Transfer Tax and a decrease in Sales Tax revenues. Schroeder commented that the Net Investment Income was a good source of revenue for the Town. The net increase in the overall fund balance was due primarily to monies contributed by Pitkin County to the Droste Purchase. Schroeder recommended that the Town continue to document its computer operating procedures in the form of a policy statement and formally approved by the Town. He also recommended that the Town consider increasing its capitalization policy to correspond with recent developments in the local government arena. The Finance Department recommended acceptance of the 1999 Financial Report. Council agreed. 05-01-00ws Page 2 DISCUSSION OF ORDINANCE NO. 07, SERIES OF 2000 Leslie Klusmire reviewed changes to Article IV as previously requested by Council. Hatfield expressed concern about wire strands being a possible threat to wildlife in the area. Council decided to discuss this section with Wildlife Specialist, Dawn Keating, at the next scheduled meeting. Council discussed the pros and cons of a supermajority vote requirement in order to approve certain ordinances and requested changes to language addressing "cash-in-lieu" relating to mitigation, required off-street parking, and landscaping with reference to water consumption for irrigation. As a water conservation tool, Hatfield also mentioned imposing a standard on the square footage of lawn allowed to be planted per property owner. Council agreed to further discuss this issue at a future Work Session. Bill Kane of the Aspen Skiing Company made a formal written objection to modifications of Chapter 16A, specifically the increases in required housing mitigation for new development in Snowmass Village. The Skiing Company believes increases are not feasible for developers. Council discussed mitigation options in detail. Representatives from the Aspen Skiing Company also asked about the possibility of contributing land in lieu of money or housing. Council considered this in relation to existing options and provided direction to staff. Council considered various percentages less than 100% mitigation that would be fair and reasonable. For comparison purposes, Council requested that staff provide the formula used for the Hines/Aspen Highlands project housing mitigation and that staff verify the percentage of mitigation the City of Aspen is currently requiring of developers. Council further requested that representatives from Pitkin County Housing Authority, Hines Development Corporation and Pitkin County Planning Commission be invited to attend the next Work Session for further discussion of housing mitigation. DRAW PARCEL DISCUSSION The Town Manager provided information to Council related to the Draw Parcel. Council discussed the possibility of building condominiums, employee housing and/or a Town Hall. Hatfield suggested that "global planning with Aspen Skiing Company, staff and members of the community would be more effective. Council and staff considered a "global planning task force" or a parallel Town/Aspen Skiing Company joint approach to the development of the Draw Parcel. After further discussion, Council directed staff to budget and plan for development of the Draw Parcel in the near future. EMPLOYEE HOUSING DISCUSSION Joe Coffey presented revised figures concerning maximum income and asset guidelines for all Town employee housing properties. Council discussed several options and agreed that an employee's current Allowable Maximum Annual Income cannot exceed 50-percent of the purchase price of the home. Council also agreed that asset 05-01-00ws Page 3 guidelines would remain the same and apply to all of the Crossings homes. All tax- deferred deposits/savings accounts, such as IRAs, will be exempt.

We are keenly interested in deepening our roots president in Snowmass Village on both of these fronts,expanding upon current programming and developing new initiatives as well. Diane Anderson Charles Cunniffe In the short term,JAS is contemplating specific projects,which will be initiated as part of a Kathryn Flack tenth anniversary campaign to secure the future of our organization. In this context,the Mickey Herron Land Company's proposal was discussed at our Board of Directors meeting of March 27, Murray Pitt 2000, John Provtne Robert Stenger Our Board has directed staff to work with a qualified architect in initiating conceptual plans Edward Tracy of what a JAS theateAclassroom facility might look like and how it would interface with a Leure Welch potential Snowmass Community Center.

Ex OFFICIO Nevertheless,based on your letter,we are prepared to be part of the planning process as the T. Michael entryway debate moves forward. In short,the possibility that portion of this SLC parcel,if Manchester conveyed to the Town of Snowmass Village free of encumbrance, might be available to JAS mayor of through discretionary action by the Town,is a very exciting development for JAS. We snoumass adloge would suggest to both the Land Company and the Town of Snowmass Village,that our F.Terry Hunt enthusiasm for such a potential project be conditioned only upon our ultimate ability to raise president SVRA suitable funding to build an adequate facility for our needs. We would additionally clarify for the record that while such an idea is of great interest to JAS,we recognize that such a NATIONAL potential project involves a public—private partnership between JAS, its constituent ADVISORY supporters,the town and other key organizations,and, that such a project could only proceed BOARD with the unqualified support and participation of the Snowmass community,both municipal Rob Gibson and private. jaze at lincoln center Dave Grusin I look forward to ongoing discussions with you and the Snowmass Land Company founder GRP records concerning this entire process. Please keep me apprised of relevant ongoing developments, Jean-Louis and if I can clarify anything or in any way be of further assistance,please do not hesitate to Guilhaumon call me. _ jags in marciac • (� 1C.lriL Li VED Don Lucoff Best regards, Jim Horowitz,President/'=�� DL media �`✓ MAY 7 5 2000 John Ramo digital directions 110 east hallam suite 104 aspen.Colorado 816ll a mv-jazzospen.com e-mail:jazzaspen @jazzaspen.com r.:. 1209135 Post Office Box 5598 :'J.F3.3181 Anderson Ranch Arts Center 2.253 Owl Creek Road =i, 5'g 923:3871 3nowwss Village,CO 81615 :..aw ancersonrancn.org April 5, 2000 Norman Perlmutter Snowmass Land Company P.O.

Jazz Aspen Snowmass is entering its second decade with numerous ideas for future expansion and Jamee Horowitz growth, in both education and performance. We are keenly interested in deepening our toots president in Snowmass Village on both of these fronts,expanding upon current programming and developing new initiatives as well. Diane Anderson Charles cunniffe In the short term,JAS is contemplating specific projects,which will be initiated as part of a Kathryn Fleck tenth anniversary campaign to secure the future of our organization. In this context,the Mickey Herron Land Company's proposal was discussed at our Board of Directors meeting of March 27, Murray Pitt 2000. John Provine Robart Stanger Our Board has directed staff to work with a qualified architect in initiating conceptual plans Edward Tracy of what a JAS theater\classroom facility might look like and how it would interface with a Laura Welch potential Snowmass Community Center. We understand that the evolution of plans Robert White surrounding the entryway to Snowmass Village are in motion,and that the outcome of this process will impact any future discussions concerting the SLC parcel in question. Ex OFFICIO Nevertheless,based on your letter,we are prepared to be part of the planning process as the T.Idlchael entryway debate moves forward. In short,the possibility that portion of this SLC parcel,if Manchester conveyed to the Town of Snowmass Village free of encumbrance,might be available to JAS mayor of through discretionary action by the Town,is a very exciting development for JAS. We snaaman VU&W would suggest to both the Land Company and the Town of Snowmass Village,that our F.lbrry Hunt enthusiasm for such a potential project be conditioned only upon our ultimate ability to raise president SVRA suitable funding to build an adequate facility for our needs. We would additionally clarify for the record that while such an idea is of great interest to JAS,we recognize that such a NATIONAL potential project involves a public—private partnership between JAS,its constituent ADVISORY supporters,the town and other key organizations, and,that such a project could only proceed BOARD with the unqualified support and participation of the Snowmass community,both municipal Rob Gibson and private. jazz at Gneuln center Dave Gmsin I look forward to ongoing discussions with you and the Snowmass Land Company founder GRPrecordr concerning this entire process. Please keep me apprised of relevant ongoing developments, Jean-Louie and if I can clarify anything or in any way be of further assistance,please do not hesitate to auiQreumon call me. , ( —-- 'tom jazz iuirnon c r' iLL CEI V ED Don Lucoff Best regards, Jim Horowitz,President-' �/ UL media - MAY 1 5 2000 John Ramo digital diraYioru 1lo east hallam saitr 104 aspen.Colorado 81611 mcu-Jazzaspen.com a-mail:jazzasper@jazzupen.mm r::. l ASPEN S R I NG C J NIP ANY January 4. 1999 T. Michael Manchester, Mayor Town Council Members Town of Snowmass Village Post Office Box 5010 Snowmass Village, Colorado 81615 Dear Mayor and Council Members: As you consider the resolution allowing the Snowmass Club to file a preliminary application I would like to affirm the importance of this project to our company. The ability to proceed with the phasing as proposed since our first meeting with the Town in November of 1996 is critical to our ability to continue. Our ownership is willing to take the risk in proceeding with Phase I to create an economically viable operation as well as providing much-needed employee housing. However, we can not commit to an additional nine-holes of golf as a condition to approval of Phase I. We will agree to the following in reference to golf: 1. Commencement of hole-by-hole design on or before the sale of 180 of 210 fractional interests in Phase I. This would be conditioned on the Town's commitment in writing to instruct Snowmass Land Company to transfer title of the Horse Ranch lands reserved for golf to the town or us. If transferred to the town we would require an easement executed on our behalf. A binding agreement on a method of determining the value of any lands proposed for exchange (softball field and school site) would also be necessary. 2. Apply for preliminary approval of Phase II on or before the sell out of 210 Phase I fractional interests. 3. Commence construction of Phase II and associated amenities upon pre-sale of 1/3 of fractional interests in Phase II. 4. If 180 sales in Phase I are not achieved by Junel, 2002 applicant shall not be required to make application for Phase II. It is our intention to construct both phases of the proposed redevelopment as well as to continue to operate the Club, but we will not expend the additional capital required to expand golf until certain the funds are generated from the sales of Phase I fractional interests. We share the Town's interest in golf. however the economics of Phase I do not support the cost of the additional holes. We are confident that both Phases will proceed, but we must do so in a prudent business manner. Post Q(liee Bar 1 248 •. gwrt. CO 81612 970.925.1220 ;r To address the other areas of concern brought up at the last Council meeting we will agree to the following: • Parking: The assumptions questioned in the traffic and circulation report during the sketch plan process are being revised by Felsberg Holt&Ullevig to address concerns raised and will be included in the preliminary application. Additionally, we will add 80 temporary parking spaces below the existing tennis courts in Phase I to accommodate construction and additional employee housing parking. If Phase II application is not made by June 1, 2002 as outlined above, applicant will convert 40 spaces to permanent parking and reconstruct the two tennis courts removed in phase I. This would result in permanent parking for 347 vehicles compared to 200 today. • Softball field: The softball field will continue to be made available on a year by year basis to the town for softball and Jazz Aspen Snowmass. Because of the present uncertainty of the final use for this land we will not agree to transfer title to the town at this time. Too many factors remain unresolved regarding the entry plan. Among these unknown issues are: whether the town is interested in the land exchange for the school site, or if an entry plan is adopted, the lands needed by the town are different than the current boundaries of the softball field. • Affordable access to the Club: As previously stated in joint and sketch plan reviews current members of the Club will only see inflationary increases in dues and will not be forced to pay additional initiation fees to maintain their memberships. We will not guarantee annual memberships will be offered in the future. As required by ordinance golf tee times will continue to be available to the general public and resort guests. • Use of golf reservation in East Village: After considering over ten routing options proposed by Nugent Associates and Palmer Course Design, we felt the use of the lands reserved for golf in East Village was not feasible for the following reasons: a) distances between the holes on the existing course and East Village were too long and would slow play, b)Two Creeks Drive was placed in the middle of lands originally anticipated as a golf hole due to unforeseen wetlands issues, c) mitigation of other wetlands disturbed used up the landing area of another originally contemplated hole, d) only two holes will now fit on the available lands rather than the three originally contemplated and e) on one of these holes the green would be located directly under the Creekside ski trail rendering it unusable until late May to early June because of the compacted snow and damage due to grooming equipment. For the above reasons we have concluded all nine holes of golf would be placed in Horse Ranch. 'r • Continued restaurant operations: We understand that a quality Food and Beverage operation is critical to any outstanding club. The availability of these facilities is paramount to our ability to market both the fractional interests proposed as well as memberships in the club. Typically food and beverage operations in a club do not make money, but are operated as an amenity to the club, which we intend to continue as part of our ongoing operation of the club. I trust these clarifications will allow us to file a Preliminary Application for Phase I. If not, we will pursue other options.

Box 5010 Snowmass Village, Colorado 81615 Re: Pre-Sketch Plan, Owl Creek Townhomes Phase IV Dear Victoria: On behalf of the Snowmass Land Company,we are requesting Town Council work session time for Pre-Sketch Plan Review of our proposed fourth phase of the Owl Creek Townhomes. The subject site is owned by Snowmass Land Company and is identified on East Village Planned Unit Development Plat as Parcel A Lot 3. The proposal for Parcel A Lot 3, (19.626 acres), includes an approximately 2-acre site, which will serve as an expansion parcel for Anderson Ranch Arts Center. Sixteen townhomes equal in character to the existing Owl Creek Townhomes, landscaping,trails and open space are also proposed. The subject property consists mostly of open meadow with an irrigation ditch,Nordic and alpine ski trails. The property is equal in character and compatible to East Village PUD Parcel E and H, site of Phase 1, 2 and 3 of the existing Owl Creek Townhomes. As you are aware we are currently scheduled to go before the Town Council during work session on April 3, 2000. We acknowledge that the town is in the process of adopting an ordinance which will allow an applicant to discuss its plans with the Council through an optional pre-sketch plan review. If this process is adopted by 2"d reading on March 20, 2000, we then would like to request that our review on the 3'd be under the guidelines of this newly adopted ordinance(Ordinance 08, Series of 2000).

March 20,2000 Written Description Owl Creek Townhomes Pre-Sketch Plan Worksession p.2 Proposed Improvements Summary This application proposes a mixed use development for Lot 3,Parcel A of the East Village Planned Unit Development(PUD)consisting of an addition to the existing neighborhood of sixteen detached and duplex Owl Creek Townhomes and an expansion of the Anderson Ranch Arts Center campus. The application also proposes the conveyance of approximately 160 acres of land to the town. The proposed sixteen townhomes are nearly identical in design and overall character to the Owl Creek Townhomes that currently exist in the neighborhood. Slight modifications will likely be made to the townhome design to fit the structures to the site's topographic features. Each townhome will include a two-car garage, plus one adjacent parking space. Extensive landscape improvements are also proposed identical to the landscape character of the existing Owl Creek Townhomes. An expansion of the Anderson Ranch Arts Center will address long-standing needs identified by the Arts Center, a nationally recognized community cultural facility, particularly for summer visitors. The Anderson Ranch is effectively without any land for further growth at its current campus and requires an addition to its Exhibition space,housing for senior staff persons,and additional studio space. These are badly needed year round buildings of the Arts Center which can also be used by members of the community. Approximately 95 percent(17.39 acres)of the parcel will be retained as general open space--- land area not covered by above ground structures. The existing pedestrian and bike path will be maintained in a new location, and the Nordic trail will be realigned partially within the skiing easement. Lot 3,Parcel A of the East Village PUD is currently identified on the approved land use plan as having the following permitted uses: landscaping,open space,hiking,biking,equestrian, nordic and downhill skiing,and golf. The golf use is permitted with the intention that it be used, in conjunction with Parcels C and D of Horse Ranch PUD,to construct up to nine holes of golf. These holes would be operated as an addition to the existing 18-hole golf course. In conceptual planning and design the configuration of three holes at East Village and up to six holes at Horse Ranch seemed to work reasonably well. After more detailed studies that were conducted subsequent to the East Village approvals,the Aspen Skiing Company determined, in a January 4, 1999 letter from Pat O'Donnell,CEO of the Aspen Skiing Company and addressed to the Town Council(attached),that the East Village parcel is generally acknowledged to not be optimal for allowing three golf holes with the required buffer areas to be constructed and that the additional nine holes of golf should be accommodated on the Horse Ranch parcels which will allow the golf course to be routed more efficiently and a new golf clubhouse to be centrally located off of Brush Creek Road. Snowiness Land Company Remaining Land Ownership The agreement executed at the end of December 1999,with the Aspen Skiing Company's purchase of the Snowmass Land Company's(SLC)holdings at the base of Fanny Hill,has marked the beginning of a transition for the SLC. This application represents the final development project for the SLC. Snowmass Land Company Design Workshop,Inc. March 20,2000 Written Description Owl Creek Townhomes Pre-Sketch Plan Worksession p.3 The SLC is bringing to a close a 12-year community-building history in the Town. The SLC has developed some of the Town's highest-quality subdivisions with virtually no disruption to the community or any financial difficulties or burdens to the Town. SLC is proud of what we have contributed to the community both in the quality of our developments and the cash, housing and land contributions to the Town. Neighborhoods such as the Divide, Horse Ranch,Two Creeks, and The Pines were created by the SLC and the sales of these properties within those neighborhoods have contributed over$2.3 million in Real Estate Transfer Tax to the Town. These neighborhoods brought other community benefits in the form of employee housing(land and $150,000 to create the Crossings neighborhood, land and$300,000 to create the Mountain View neighborhood),ski improvements(Two Creeks base, additional ski runs,nordic trail extensions), and parks and open space(650 acres in Horse Ranch,200 acres in Hidden Valley, 5 acres for a town park,trail easements throughout the Town,and financial contributions of over $1.5 million, including$500,000 earmarked for town park improvements). The SLC has also been a major contributor to the community in other areas. The SLC is a supporter of the Anderson Ranch Arts Center,provided Fanny Hill for Summer Concert series use,provided the use of Horse Ranch property for the balloon festival and summer fire works shows,provided the land for the Town's Public Works Maintenance facility,and has contributed financially towards worthwhile public infrastructure improvements. Unique Opportunity for Anderson Ranch SLC would like to close out their development role in Snowmass Village by including a significant, if not unprecedented,boost for one of the most noteworthy cultural institutions in our community,the Anderson Ranch. The SLC recognizes the importance of the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in this application. A community's longer term contribution is in the cultural art it gives civilization and the expansion of the Anderson Ranch into a more complete world- renowned center for visiting and resident artists to produce and teach their craft,here in Snowmass Village will enhance this center and the contribution of the Town of Snowmass in the international arts community. Despite their success,or perhaps because of it,the Anderson Ranch Arts Center has reached a significant obstacle---they are out of land. The Arts Center campus is fully developed,having implemented a master plan that makes the best use of their available land resources. The Arts Center is in a difficult position of not being able to meet the demand for programs. In addition, the increasing costs of housing makes it difficult for key staff to afford to live within the town. The SLC is proposing the dedication of approximately 2 acres of land to the Anderson Ranch Arts Center. This land will provide the opportunity for an expanded campus to meet identified program needs. In addition to the land dedication,the SLC is also providing planning and design services to the Arts Center in sufficient detail to proceed through the land use approvals process. The SLC will also provide a significant financial contribution to the proposed capital improvements. Unique Opportunity for the Community Community comprehensive plans outline a long-term vision that a community holds for itself. An assessment of what the community has been and what it wants to be,framed within a context of opportunities known at the time is a key component of the plan's development. The Snowmass Land Company Design Workshop,Inc. March 20,2000 Written Description Owl Creek Townhomes Pre-Sketch Plan Worksession p.4 comprehensive plans which have served their communities most successfully are those which are flexible enough to respond to changing conditions and unforeseen opportunities. Twelve years ago,the SLC acquired the property from the FDIC,having seen it go through repeated financial difficulties that continually impacted the community and ultimately ending up in the hands of the federal government through foreclosure. Back then,t would have been difficult to anticipate that the SLC would now be bowing out as a major developer of the Snowmass community. But we are in just that position. In so doing,there is a unique opportunity for the entire community and its future list of priorities. That is the 100 acres of Horse Ranch land owned by SLC and subject to a golf reservation for no more than six holes. This land is the last large usable acreage in the Town environs that could be the home of all of the priorities that are part of the community vision. A contribution to the Town of the Horse Ranch, free and clear of any use limitations or deed restrictions would allow the Town to be the master of its own destiny to serve the populace by providing the land to pursue,as they see fit,each and everyone of its priorities whether they be expanded park, playing fields, swimming facility, community center, improvements to the Snowmass entrance, including improved vehicle circulation and transit service,a permanent home and improved outdoor venue for Jazz Aspen, the Snowmass Institute,as well as any other potential non-profits just to name a few. Best of all, the land acquisition would be at no cost to the Town or financial burden on its citizens.Along with the land dedication of 100 acres,the water rights for the property will be given to the Town, the golf reservation will be removed,and the deed restrictions on the Town Parcel or"school site"will be lifted,to give it fully unrestricted use and market value.The golf reservation requires SLC's approval for more than six holes to be located on the property.It is clear,that unrestricted ownership of the land,which SLC is proposing, means the Town owns the land and the entire "bundle of rights"that goes with ownership including use as they determine is fitting. The attached chart and map,entitled"Master Plan,"detail the complete land donation package. Sketch Plan Review Criteria It is difficult to review this proposal against the criteria outlined in the Town of Snowmass Village Land Use and Development Code. This proposal represents a unique opportunity for the Town whose benefits will exceed the benefits that are identified through the application of the review criteria. Information to elaborate on the benefits of this proposal has been provided to supplement this review and a conceptual site plan, "Option 1," is attached The proposed Uses on the parcel are appropriate for the neighborhood. The townhomes will be very similar in character and use patterns to the existing Owl Creek Townhomes. Ownership of the homes will be similar to the ownership of the existing townhomes. These will be primarily second homes for most owners,will likely not be rented for short periods of time,and will,as a result,place little demand on community services and facilities. The proposed improvements are consistent with the Comprehensive Plan in that they are residential and community facility types of use recognized and codified by the Town. These use types are also recognized within the existing Planned Unit Development land use designation. There is no build out specified for Lot 3,Parcel A by which to measure the parcel's capacity to accept development. This application proposes a program that can be accommodated on the parcel without negative impacts, and also proposes a package of community benefits that justify approving the full program. Snowmass Land Company Design Workshop,Inc. March 20,2000 Written Description Owl Creek Townhomes Pre-Sketch Plan Worksession P. 5 The proposed Architecture and Landscape will be nearly identical to the design of the existing Owl Creek Townhomes' architecture and landscape. Similar building massing, scale,and materials palette will be used. Slight modifications are likely to be made to the structures to best fit them to the site's topographic features. The townhome design is very well received by Owl Creek Townhome owners and neighboring community members,and there are no plans to alter the design other than the slight modifications. The site planning and landscape design will also be nearly identical to that of the existing Owl Creek Townhomes with the exception of the density. The density will be significantly less than that of the existing Owl Creek Townhomes—.97 du/ac compared to 2.5-3.5 du/ac for the existing Owl Creek Townhomes. Minor improvements in the landscape design, such as better screened utility boxes and improved access to adjacent parking spaces,are also planned. Approximately 95 percent(17.39 acres)of the townhome site area will be left as general open space. Area totaling approximately 1 acre of the site, including an existing ski easement and the front entrance area of the site,will be dedicated open space. This area will be dedicated to the Town and the Owl Creek and Fox Run HOAs. The remainder of the common open space will be under the control of the HOA for the proposed townhomes. The package of community benefits also includes additional parcels that will be dedicated to the Town,or existing East Village homeowners groups,as open space or community use parcels. The proposed dedication of open space included in this application far exceeds a threshold of"appropriateness"and the locations of these parcels make most easily accessible and significant contributions to the Town's open space system. Wetlands exist on the parcel as a Natural Resource,and are identified on the attached"Survey" plan. The extent of the wetlands was delineated as part of the original East Village PUD work and impacts made at that time were mitigated. The proposed improvements are located outside of the wetland area to avoid impacts and thus the need for mitigation. There are no Hazard areas within the parcel. The proposed Access and Circulation system focuses on supporting existing infrastructure wherever possible. Vehicle access to the proposed townhomes is from existing Two Creeks Drive and impacts to the drive are kept to a minimum with two egress points. Vehicle access to the proposed Anderson Ranch Arts Center is from Burnt Mountain Circle. Limited Parking spaces are located adjacent to the Arts Center buildings for disabled access, deliveries,and service. The remaining parking demand is accommodated in the existing Two Creeks parking lot. There is a great opportunity for the shared use of this lot between skiing in the winter and the Arts Center in the summer. A new pedestrian connection is proposed between the parking lot and the Arts Center. The existing pedestrian and bicycle path through the parcel is retained and shifted towards Two Creeks Drive. Residents and users of the proposed neighborhood will have direct access to the path. The path intersects with the heavily used path located along Owl Creek Road, creating a clear connection between the proposed neighborhood and the Arts Center main campus. The proposed improvements include Employee Housing for key senior staff at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center. There are anticipated to be two residential units. The SLC also has successfully contributed to bringing over one hundred units of employee housing on-line within the Town. These units were provided much earlier than the need demanded,and as a result the SLC received employee housing credits. The SLC anticipates using a portion of these credits to further mitigate the need to provide additional employee housing units derived from impacts created by the proposed improvements. Snowmass Land Company Design Workshop,Inc. March 20,2000 Written Description Owl Creek Townhomes Pre-Sketch Plan Worksession p.6 The development Timetable anticipates constructing the proposed improvements in two phases. The existing Owl Creek Townhomes were also constructed in phases and the applicant's development experience warrants proceeding on such a timetable. It is expected that the development of the townhomes and Arts Center will occur in tandem.The parcel will be subdivided through the approval process to allow the Anderson Ranch Arts Center to become the owners of the parcel on which the improvements will be constructed. As outlined in this written description and demonstrated throughout this application,the Community Welfare of the town stands to greatly benefit by the proposed improvements. In exchange for approvals to construct a neighborhood of townhomes of a quality and character already demonstrated to the Town and favorably received by the neighboring community,the Town stands to gain an unprecedented package of community benefits. Removing the physical impediments to the expansion of the Anderson Ranch Arts Center,providing the property for the Town to realize their goals for an exceptional community and recreation center, giving Jazz Aspen an opportunity for a permanent home,and providing the Town and adjacent homeowner groups with the dedication of open space parcels are incredible benefits for the community to achieve.

Box 5010 Snowmass Village, Colorado 81615 RE: APPLICATION TO ALLOW ADDITIONAL USE FOR KRABLOONIK PROPERTY UNDER THE DIVIDE LAND USE PLAN MAP Dear Ms. Giannola: We represent, and are the authorized agent and attorney-in-fact for, MacEachen Holdings, LLC,a Colorado limited liability company(hereinafter"MacEachen"). MacEachen is the owner of Lot 45, The Divide PUD, located in Snowmass Village, Colorado, on which is located the Krabloonik Restaurant and Dog Kennels (hereinafter the "Property"). This letter and attached exhibits shall serve as MacEachen's preliminary application to the Town to request amendment of the list of allowed uses for the Property as set forth on The Divide PUD Land Use Plan Map. As you know, MacEachen had initially intended to submit this application pursuant to Section 16A-5-250 of the Town of Snowmass Village Land Use Code relating to administrative modifications to an existing PUD. While MacEachen still feels that the requested amendment to The Divide Land Use Plan is permissible under the administrative modification provisions of the Town Land Use Code,MacEachen has agreed to submit this application for review by the Town during its May 30 work session in order for the Town Council and Planning Commission to review the issues in detail and eventually recommend the ultimate procedure under which MacEachen shall pursue those requests set forth below. 1. BACKGROUND The use of the Property is governed by that document known as The Divide Land Use Plan Map(hereinafter"Land Use Map"). The Land Use Plan Map was approved as part of the Final Land RECEIVED MAY s 1000 FREILICH,MYLER,LEITNER&CARLISLE Ms. Victoria Giannola May 4, 2000 Page 2 Use Plan and Detailed Final Plat for The Divide by Town of Snowmass Village Ordinance No. 16, Series of 1989, and is attached hereto as Exhibit A for your reference. One of the purposes of said Ordinance No. 16 was to acknowledge the underlying zoning of The Divide as MU-PUD(mixed use -planned unit development) and that the planned development of The Divide was in conformance with the intent and objectives of the MU-PUD zone district. Ordinance No. 16 of 1989 subjected the Property to the Land Use Map and the specific conditions set forth therein, such as allowed land uses, sizes, densities and other development standards specific to the Property. The allowed uses for the Property,identified as"Parcel D" on the Land Use Map,include the Krabloonik Restaurant,dog sled operation and kennels,support buildings for the restaurant and dog kennels. and employee housing. 2. Request for Modification of Land Use Mao The purpose of this Application is to request that the Town allow modification of the Land Use Map to permit,as an additional allowed use on the Property,Single Family Residential use. As an alternative to the use, expansion and development of the Property for commercial operations (restaurant and dog sled operations), MacEachen desires to amend the Land Use Map to allow for up to two (2) single family residences on Lot 45, if, and only if, all commercial operations are discontinued. The Property is currently zoned MU-PUD and under the terms of the Town Code, single family dwellings are an allowed use within said zone district. Besides the potential construction by the Aspen Skiing Company of a restaurant staging facility on Lot 44 of The Divide, Krabloonik is the only current or potential commercial use present in the neighborhood. It is important to note that the Property was originally zoned MU-PUD solely to accommodate the existence of the commercial operations of the Krabloonik restaurant and dog kennels. Any eventual conversion of the Property to residential-uses would therefore result in no adverse impacts on surrounding properties. To the contrary,the Divide Homeowner's Association and individual Divide homeowners located adjacent to the Property have voiced their strong support for an allowed single family use on the Property and intend to submit a joint letter to the Town Council in the near future officially setting forth such support. Therefore,this application seeks the addition by the Town of a use,single family residential, to the allowed uses for the Property which is an allowed use within the Property's zone district, which would fit with the existing neighborhood scheme,and which would have no adverse impacts on neighboring properties. Also, the use would only be allowed as an alternative to the existing commercial use of the Property and at no time would combined commercial/residential uses(except employee housing)on the Property be allowed or requested. FREILICH,MYLER,LEITNER&CARLISLE Ms. Victoria Giannola May 4, 2000 Page 3 3. Single Family Dwelling Parameters In regard to the single family residential use herein sought to be included as an allowed use for the Property,MacEachen would request the following parameters to be attached to such allowed use: a. The ability to construct two (2) separate single family dwellings on the Property,the square footage of each dwelling not to exceed 4,200 square feet; or b. The ability to construct one (1) single family dwelling on the Property,the square footage of which would not exceed 5,500 square feet. Additionally,all other dimensional parameters applicable to other Divide PUD single family dwellings as set forth in the Land Use Map would apply to such dwellings. 4. Application for Building Permit to Exnand Existing Proper Deed Restrictions MacEachen plans to submit to the Town a building permit application in order to expand and modify the restaurant currently located upon the Property. The proposed expansion of the Krabloonik Restaurant contemplates an additional 1,700 square feet of space for a total restaurant square footage of 4,426 (an addition of 30 seats), which additional space is a use by right and allowed under the Land Use Map. At the time the original restaurant was constructed on the Property adequate employee housing related to the commercial components of the Property was provided, including a separate apartment unit and two (2) bunk rooms with a total of 7 beds utilized primarily for winter use comprising a total of 1,056 square feet. As an allowed use under the Land Use Map,MacEachen is entitled to build up to 2,900 square feet of employee housing upon the Property. While MacEachen is not required to provide any further employee housing upon the Property in connection with the proposed expansion of the restaurant,' MacEachen is willing to provide an additional 800 square feet of employee housing on the Property in connection with the contemplated ' See Condition No. 9 of the Land Use Parameters for Parcel D set forth on the Land Use Map which states: Expansion or modification of existing structures shall require approval of the Town Council regarding architectural design only. FREILICH,MVLER,LEITNER&CARLISLE Ms. Victoria Giannola May 4, 2000 Page 4 restaurant expansion, for a total of 1,856 square feet of employee housing,and to deed restrict such housing to use by employees of Krabloonik. However,as a condition of voluntarily providing such employee housing,MacEachen would request that the deed restrictions related to such additional employee housing remain in place and be effective only for so long as the Property is utilized for restaurant and kennel purposes. Therefore,should the Town add single family uses to the allowed uses for the Property and at some point in the future those residential uses replace the commercial uses, the employee housing deed restrictions would terminate and become of no further force or effect. 5. Review Standards for Administrative Modifications Pursuant to Section 16A-5-250(a)(9)of the Land Use Code,the Town planning department may make administrative amendments to any design feature of an approved PUD or the specific use approved for a PUD (emphasis added). This section of the Land Use Code goes on to state: Activities that shall not be considered administrative include changes to the overall character of the project, changes that substantially increase trip generation or the demand for public facilities and changes that are inconsistent with a condition or representation of the project's original approval, or that require granting a further variation from that granted in the original approval. At the April 26 pre-application meeting you indicated that you would recommend denial of any application submitted by MacEachen under the administrative modifications provisions of the Land Use Code as it was your interpretation that allowing exclusively residential uses to be added to the allowed uses for the Property would change the overall character of the project. Your decision was seemingly based on your interpretation of the word "project" to mean the Krabloonik parcel solely. However, the word "project" cited above could be interpreted, and I believe must be interpreted,to mean the entire PUD project. As Section 16A-5-250(a)(9)addresses administrative modifications as to PUD's it follows that the term "project" within the context of the section refers to the PUD as a whole. This interpretation is supported by the use of the word"project" later in the section where it refers to the"project's original approval." Obviously,in this context,"project"must refer to the PUD and not the individual lot. Accordingly,allowing the potential for single family residential use as an allowed use on the Property would be permitted under this section as such use would certainly not change the "overall character"of the PUD in light of the fact that the entire PUD,with two exceptions,consists of single family residential uses. FREILICH.MYLER,LEITNER&CARLISLE Ms. Victoria Giannola May 4, 2000 Page 5 Allowing exclusively residential uses on the Property would not increase but would rather decrease trip generation and the demand for public facilities. Furthermore, we are aware of no condition or representation made in connection with approval of the Divide PUD that would require that Lot 45 only be used for commercial purposes. Based on the foregoing,it appears to us that the application can be processed under the Land Use Code's administrative modification procedures. 6. Submittal Information For purposes of submitting information pertinent to this application and per our discussion ofApril 26,I have attached hereto most of that information required under the Town's administrative modification provisions which have been collected or produced to date. Should the Town ultimately decide that this application may proceed under the administrative modification provisions of the Land Use Code,or any other section of the Land Use Code,all submittal information required under the particular provisions selected by the Town shall be immediately submitted to the Town for its review and assistance in processing the application. a.

SNOWMASS VI T-11 November 11, 1999 Planning and Building Ueparnnent Mr. Doug MacKenzie, Snowmass General Manager Snowmass Ski Area P. 0. Box 1248 Aspen. CO 81612 Dear Doug, This letter is to follow up on our meeting on Monday,November 8, 1999, regarding compliance with the Snowmass Ski Area Wildlife Enhancement and Management Plan. As discussed at the meeting, we had concerns about adherence to verbal commitments made between Town staff and ASC staff regarding the Wildlife Plan. And, secondly,whether or not we should continue to rely on upon verbal commitments, or go to a more formal written process. These verbal commitments arose from a meeting that took place on October 5, 1999, when Gary Suiter and I met with Rob Baxter and Joey Woltemath to discuss completion of the revegetation and burning of slash piles on Long Shot ski run during fall elk migration. At this meeting it was determined that all work would cease until November 1. 1999. After this date, we would then fly the area to ascertain whether elk were still in the area. If the elk had moved down lower on the mountain, burning of the slash piles would then be allowed to proceed. This agreement represented a compromise between protecting the elk and completion of trail work by ASC since both the Snowmass Ski Area FEIS (Chpt. II, pg. 75) and the Wildlife Plan (page 95) direct all human activity, including construction and maintenance activities, to be stopped during elk migration. The Town felt that if it could be confirmed by a fly over after November 1°` that the elk were no longer near Long Shot, then the goals of the Wildlife Plan to protect elk would be sustained. Although the ASC personnel did a fly-over, no Town staff was present. Additionally. burning of the slash piles commenced before November V, without notice to the Town. As a result of noncompliance to the 10/5/99 agreement. it was decided at our November St" meeting that: pt) is LC 5-11tI <NOX%MASS VILLAGE.COLORADO 81615 as, ,970! 923-111,i . plan„cosc.com • w%�mosv.coui y� Page 2 • All future agreements concerning the Wildlife Plan would be in writing so that the Town and ASC are aware of the parameters and timelines. The Town will be contacted to discuss any proposed change to any agreement prior to its implementation. • If slash piles need to be burned after September 30`" in future years, a fly- over will be conducted that includes Town staff and the ASC biologist to determine where the animals are, and make plans accordingly. However, no burning of slash shall take place during the height of the migration between September 30- October 315`. We understand with a change in personal there is often a period before all the operational policies and documents are fully understood. We would be happy to work with Rob Baxter and his trail crew to review the history, goals and objectives of Ordinance 9—94 in order to increase understanding of the Wildlife Plan and foster communication about its components. Please contact me if you would like to discuss this idea. Thank you for meeting with us on November 8`h. We were pleased to hear of your continued commitment to the Wildlife Plan's implementation and look forward to working with you and your staff in achieving the goals of the Plan in the future. Sincerely, Dawn Keating Wildlife Specialist i cc: Rob Baxter, Snowmass Area Manager Craig Thompson. Community Development Director, TOSV COUNCIL MEMORANDUM FROM: Dawn Keating, Wildlife Specialist MEETING DATE: May 30, 2000 RE: Review of annual Wildlife Reports from Snowmass Land Company and the Aspen Skiing Company I have reviewed the annual Wildlife Reports from both the Snowmass Land Company (SLC) and the Aspen Skiing Company(ASC) and provide the following comments. These reports summarize monitoring results and 1999 actions implemented on their Wildlife Enhancement and Management Plans(WEMP). These reports also outline actions that will be implemented in 2000. BACKGROUND When Two Creeks/the Pines and the Snowmass Ski Area Master Plan were approved in 1994, they both included a WEMP. The intent of the WEMP was to offset the development impacts on wildlife through a number of objectives and planned actions. The role of the Town is to ensure that these measures are implemented. One component of the WEMP's is that the SLC and ASC prepare an annual report that is reviewed by staff and presented to the Town Council. These reports are the fourth annual reports by both the SLC and ASC. After reviewing the reports and discussing them with the SLC and ASC, I have determined that the WEMP's continue to be carried out in a timely way, and that the goals and objectives are being implemented. In 1999, both the SLC and ASC remained committed to implementing the overall intent of the Plans. Dr. Dan Baharav oversees the wildlife monitoring component of both Plans and has authored the attached reports for your review. f e „ DISCUSSION Snowmass Land Company—In 1999, staff encouraged the SLC to increase their efforts to control weeds and improve erosion control measures throughout the project. Both of these efforts improved, but a diligent watch is still needed to ensure that the momentum on these two issues continues to improve. Staff also increased their analysis of building sites during the permit review process and their field inspections. There continues to be challenges in enforcing the trail closure dates in the spring and fall. Staff will continue their efforts, including those to educate the public through newspaper ads and press releases. The year 2000 will be the final year of required monitoring for the SLC's WEND. Ordinance 6—94 directed the SLC to monitor wildlife and implement the WENT in seven years. A final report to the Town Council and staff will be in 2001. Staff will work with SLC to format the report so that all the years of data on monitoring are present in one report. Beyond that, Council will have to make a decision as to whether the Town should take over the monitoring program. Staff recommends that the Town take over the program, given the sensitive habitat and wildlife species, notably elk,within the project area. One outstanding element in SLC's WEMP was a requirement to produce a Field Guide for their homeowners as an environmental education tool. Per staff discussions and Council action, it was decided in 1999 to broaden the scope and size of the guide.As a result, the Town has recently contracted with Janis Huggins to produce a 240-page color field guide using funds from both the SLC and the Ordinance 9—94 Wildlife Mitigation Fund. It will be available for distribution to the public in May 2002. Aspen Skiing Company-Numerous efforts were undertaken in 1999 by the ASC to implement the WENT, including those recommended by staff. For 2000, staff recommends additional efforts in weed control on lower Long Shot be undertaken. Additionally, in 1999, there was some confusion on the closure dates during fall migration, and what kinds of construction activities/maintenance were permitted. Staff and the ASC worked to further refine the meaning and intent of the closure dates so that elk on the upper slopes of Burnt Mountain were protected. Staff will continue to work with ACS staff in 2000 to implement these closure dates. Lastly, staff compliments both SLC and ASC for their diligence and commitment in implementing the Wildlife Enhancement and Management Plans. The value of collecting data on the status of the wildlife within the project areas coupled with undertaking environmental protection efforts cannot be understated.
