COUNCIL COMMUNIQUE Meeting Date: September 11, 2000 at 2:50 PM in a Work Session Presented By: Chris Conrad, Planning Director Subject: Work Session: Amendments to Article V of the Town of Snowmass Village Land Use and Development Code. Background: Article V of the Land Use Code was last discussed August 24. Staff received direction for six (6) specific areas to address at the next meeting: 1. Reconfigure the PUD section so that it is easier to follow the process for each application type. Add provisions to better define the line between Sketch and Preliminary Plan review. Add additional content requirements for Sketch Plan as discussed. 2. Incorporate language to better provide for site and architectural review of changes to existing buildings or new buildings within previously approved PUD's and development not currently covered by provisions of the Land Use or Building Codes. 3. Clarify that minor changes to a development during the course of development review by the Town Council may be referred back to the Planning Commission for their review and comment without necessarily requiring that the item be tabled by the Town Council. 4. Incorporate the unit equivalency chart for determining maximum buildout. 5. Provide enforcement guidelines that clarify the role and responsibility of staff when enforcing the provisions of the code. - The enclosed material responds to Items 1-3 with the exception that staff believes that the code sufficiently I 1, SQUARE UNIT CATEGORIES FOOTAGE EQUIVALENT UNIT SIZE 250 1 500 1000 1500 2000 2500 300013500140001 45W WWI 55001 WWI 8500 1 Less Then 1. & . 5 0.75 0.75 Will MULTI ANNLY II 1,000 Af.-1,500&f 1+.05 Per Each AddltlalA 1.00 IN 100 s.f.Above 1,000 s.f.

The Unit Equivalency Chart has not been added yet. Staff would like to adjust the chart so that the unit equivalency for a single family unit of adequate size to house a typical family (approximately 2,000-2,500 s.f.) would have a unit equivalency of 1.0 and serve as a base line within the chart. The current chart has been included within the packet and an amended one, along with the zoning enforcement provisions (not yet completed)will be provided at the meeting if possible. Unit Equivalency will likely need to be completed at the September 18 meeting. In addition to the proposed amendments outlined above, staff would like to discuss amendments concerning: Amendments added to clarify Section 16A-5-300(b)(3), Priority to first complete application. • The limit for granting variation approval to exceed the maximum height limit specified by the underlying zone district or PUD. Discussion regarding the proposed amendments requiring a meeting with staff prior to scheduling the initial public hearing for the application. • The added provision enabling a project to exceed 100% of the maximum allowed buildout in exceptional circumstances. Staff would also like to discuss the "Community Purposes" provisions of the PUD section and the term "Community Benefits" to gain better direction from council regarding any further amendments that may need to be made prior to the September 18 meeting. Recommendation: Staff comments will be provided at that meeting. Provide direction to staff to proceed with for First Reading of Article V amendments at your September 18 meeting. P:\user\cconrad\MS Word Docs\Article V LUC Amendments TCMerno02 ARTICLE V PROPOSED AMENDMENTS SEPTEMBER 11,2000 TC MEETING Division 3 Planned Unit Development Sec. 16A-5-300. Purpose; overview; general restrictions. (a) Purpose. The purpose of the planned unit development(PUD)process is to permit variations from the strict application of certain k4wstandards of the Town's zone districts in order to allow flexibility for landowners to creatively plan for the overall development of their land and thereby, to achieve a more desirable environment than would be possible through the strict application of the minimum standards of this Development Code. Specifically, it is the purpose of the planned unit development process is to: (1) Allow creativity. Allow a creative approach to the development and use of land and related physical facilities to produce better developments and to obtain amenities for the public. (2) Allow variations. Allow a developer variations from certain requirements of the underlying zone district, provided such variations are consistent with the Comprehensive Plan, and will result in benefits for the community. (3) Maximize choice. Maximize choice in the type of environments available to the public. (4) Preserve natural features. Create patterns of development that preserve valued environmental resource lands and avoid the development of natural hazard areas. (5) Efficient land use pattems. Relate residential, commercial and community facilities in a manner that promotes cost effective transportation systems and population distribution, and enhances pedestrian access and movement that might not otherwise be achieved under the strict application of the requirements of underlying zoning. (6) Ensure public input. Ensure appropriate levels of public input to the planning process, so that sensitive areas of the community can be developed in accordance with community goals and objectives. (b) Overview of PUD Procedure. A PUD application shall be reviewed pursuant to Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 1 the procedures and standards of this Section. (1) Major or Minor PUD. The procedures applicable to a particular PUD are dependent on whether the project is classified as a minor or a major PUD. The criteria for classifying projects as major or minor are described in Table 5-3, Criteria for Classifying PUD's as Major or Minor. If a proposed development activity does not fit within the criteria listed in the table, then the Planning Director shall determine whether the proposal should be classified as a major or minor development, taking into consideration whether or not it would be beneficial for the Town to review a sketch plan of the proposed development. TABLE 5-3 CRITERIA FOR CLASSIFYING PUD'S AS MAJOR OR MINOR ihOljl�sB�HF a A major PUD is a project that meets A minor PUD is a project that meets all of the any of the following criteria: following criteria: New Development New Development • Contains more than four(4) • Contains no more than four(4) dwelling/hotel/lodge or other dwelling/hotel/ residential units. lodge or other residential units. • Contains more than four thousand • Contains no more than four thousand (4,000)sq.ft.of nonresidential space.

(2) Steps in PUD review process. A major PUD shall be processed according to the following review steps, as further described herein: a. Sketch PUD plan review by the Planning Commission and Town Council. b. Preliminary PUD plan review by the Planning Commission. Article V Amendments Sept. 11.2000 TC Meeting 2 r� 6 �� C. Preliminary PUD plan review by the Town Council. d. Final PUD plan review by the Town Council. A minor PUD shall be processed according to the same review steps as a major PUD, except that a minor PUD shall not be required to proceed through sketch PUD plan review. (3) One (1) major PUD under review. Unless otherwise authorized by resolution of the Town Council, there shall only be one(1) major PUD application under review by the Planning Commission and one (1) other major PUD application under review by the Town Council at any time. The Planning Director shall establish€egna4ata procedures to administer this policy, based on the following provisions: a. Priority to first complete application. Scheduling priority shall be given to the first complete major PUD application received, provided that: i. Any project that has received sketch plan approval shall receive scheduling priority upon submission of its preliminary and final plan applications; and ii. Any major PUD application that the Town Council determines serves a public purpose shall receive scheduling priority over all other development applications. b. Requests for additional information. In order to allow for development review to proceed in a timely and fair manner, applicants who are requested by the Planning Commission or Town Council to submit additional information or to amend their application which are necessary for the uninterrupted continuous review shall submit a complete package of the requested materials to the Planning Director at least seven(7) days prior to the next scheduled meeting of that board. If an applicant does not submit the requested materials in a timely manner or if the applicant reauests that the processine of their application be delayed, the next prioritized application will be scheduled before that review board. However, once the applicant submits a complete package of the requested materials to the Planning Director or the annlicant has requested that the review of their application recommence, the application shall receive the next available scheduling priority, as Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 3 60 � q ri- determined by the Planning Director, over all other development applications. The provisions of this paragraph shall also apply to a submission being processed under the provisions of Chapter 16. C. Sketch plan review accommodation. If the processing status of an existing application with scheduling priority allows, the Planning Director may schedule a new sketch plan application for review before the Planning Commission or the Town Council at meetings that do not delay the processing of the existing application. (c) General Restrictions. Although one (1) of the purposes of these PUD regulations is to provide flexibility in the land development process, this Section is intended to define the limits of that flexibility. The following restrictions shall apply to all PUD's: (1) Minimum land area. There shall be no minimum land area qualification in order to be eligible to apply for a PUD,provided that PUD approval shall not be granted solely to permit variations to develop a single lot, building or use. (2) Location. A PUD may be developed on any land located within the Town. (3) Uses. The land uses permitted in a PUD shall be limited to those uses that are allowed, or are allowed by special review, in the underlying zone district. (4) Maximum buildout. The Comprehensive Plan contains an analysis of future buildout of single-family subdivisions and other developments within the Town limits. It identifies the maximum number of future lots/units and commercial/other space that may be developed within each subdivision, parcel or other development. The Unit Equivalency Chart, found in Table 5-4, defines what constitutes a unit by distinguishing between the various dwelling types and sizes and specifying an equivalency factor to be utilized to establish the number of future buildout units that will be generated by the proposed development. If the Town Council determines that the PUD complies with the applicable provisions of this Subsection (c), General Restrictions, the standards of Section 16A-5-310, Review Standards, and any other applicable provisions of this Code, then a PUD may develop up to, but not more than, sixty-five Percent (65%) of the maximum number of future lots/units and commercial/other space Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 4 identified for that subdivision or other development in the buildout analysis. The Town Council may approve a buildout that is less than or greater than sixty-five percent (65%), based on the following standards: a. Lesser buildout. A lesser buildout may be approved by the Town if, during the evaluation of the compliance of the PUD with the applicable review standards, it is determined that there are site specific physical constraints on the property that would limit its appropriateness for buildout, (such as the presence of wetlands, flood plains, steep slopes or wildlife habitat), or the applicant has been unable to adequately provide public improvements or services necessary for the development, or the buildout would be incompatible with surrounding land uses or with the character of the community as described in Section 16A-4-340, Building Design Guidelines to Preserve Community Character, or if other pertinent limitations are identified. b. Greater buildout. A greater t, 99up to but net mew than a and Gomm ethff da7valepateah may be approved if the Town Council finds that the PUD achieves one(1) or more of the purposes described in Subsection(c)(6), Community Purposes for PUD's, and the PUD complies with the other applicable provisions of this Subsection (c), General Restrictions, the standards of Section 16A-5-310, Review Standards, and any other applicable provisions of this Code. No buildout may be permitted to exceed one-hundred percent 000%)of the maximum number of future lots/units and commercial/other space listed for that subdivision. parcel or other development, except that under unique and exceptional circumstances, sufficiently demonstrated by the applicant, a reconsideration and amendment of the future buildout analysis chart allocation for that subdivision, parcel or other development may be considered. The Town Council shall then adopt an ordinance, approved by at least three-quarters('/4)of the members of the Town Council present and voting amending the future buildout analysis chart and identifying the reasons why the amendment is warranted. < INSERT TABLE 5-4, UNIT EQUIVALENCY > (5) Dimensional limitations. Certain dimensional limitations applicable to Article V Amendments Sept.11,2000 TC Meeting 5 the property may be varied within a PUD. The limitations that may be varied are those of the underlying zone district; or, for properties for which a PUD or other development plan has previously been approved, the limitations set by that approval. For any property designated PUD or SPA without an underlying zone district, the PUD process shall be used to rezone the property to a zone district containing dimensional limitations in order to establish the applicable dimensional limitations for the property. Only the following dimensional limitations may be varied: a. Maximum allowable height of any structure within the PUD; b. Minimum open space requirement for the PUD; C. Maximum allowable floor area of the PUD; d. Minimum area of lots within the PUD; and e. Minimum setbacks for buildings within the PUD. A dimensional limitation may be varied when the Town Council finds that the PUD achieves one (1)or more of the applicable purposes listed in Subsection(c)(6), Community Purposes for PUD's, that granting of the variation is necessary for that purpose to be achieved, and that the resulting development will be consistent with the provisions of Subsection (c)(7), Standards for Granting of Variations, and Section 16A-5-310, Review Standards. (6) Community purposes for PUD's. The Comprehensive Plan identifies certain purposes the community intends to achieve as it develops. The following purposes shall be used in determining whether the buildout for a PUD may exceed ° sixty-five percent (651/o) of that identified in the buildout analysis and whether any of the parcel's dimensional limitations should be vaned: a. Provision of restricted housing. A parcel's maximum buildout may be achieved and its dimensional limitations may be vaned '.o offer an incentive to applicants to provide more restricted housing within the PUD than would otherwise be required€44ho devslopmertl by this Development Code, particularly in those priority locations for such housing identified within the Comprehensive Plan. b. Encourage sustainable development. A parcel's maximum Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 6 _ gyp - buildout may be achieved and its dimensional limitations may be varied to encourage sustainable development within the Town that helps to diversifies the mix of lodging, retail and dining uses and that is consistent with the intent of the Comprehensive Plan. (Delete?) C. Provide open space and/or avoid wildlife habitat. A parcel's maximum buildout may be achieved and its dimensional limitations may be varied to provide necessary site planning flexibility to enable the development to provide more and/or hip-her quality @Fee& 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. A parcel's dimensional limitations may be varied(but its maximum buildout may not be achieved) to 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. A parcel's maximum buildout may be achieved and its dimensional limitations may be varied to 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 consistent with the intent of the Comprehensive Plan and the Town's coals and objectives. 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. Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 7 II Achieving one (1) or more of the applicable purposes listed above does not by itself, grant any development entitlement for the buildout of a PUD to exceed sixty-five percent(65%) of that identified in the buildout analysis or for any of the parcel's dimensional limitations to be varied. (7) Standards for granting of variations. Any PUD that requests any of the variations authorized in Subsection(c)(5),Dimensional Limitations, shall also comply with the following standards: a. Height. A request to increase the maximum allowable height for any building or structure may be approved by the Town Council, provided at least fifty percent(50%) of a building or a-structure's footprint and volume within the PUD conforms to the height limits of the underlying zone district. b. Open space and minimum lot area. A variation to reduce the minimum open space requirement or to reduce minimum lot area (in order to cluster lots) may be permitted if: i. Such variation will not be detrimental to the character of the proposed development or to surrounding properties; ii. The proposed development shall include open space for the mutual benefit of the entire development; and iii. The open space that is provided is accessible and available to at least all dwelling units and lots for which the open space is intended. C. Minimum building setbacks. Minimum building setbacks shall be established by the PUD plan, provided adequate distance shall be left between buildings for necessary access and fire protection, and to ensure proper ventilation, light, air and snowmelt between buildings, and to minimize the effects of transmission of noise between units and between buildings. (8) Parking. The number of parking spaces in the PUD shall be that required for the underlying zone district, unless a reduction in that requirement is granted, pursuant to Section 16A-4-310(c), Reduction of Required Parking. (9) Road standards. A PUD may be permitted to deviate from the Town's road standards, to enable the development to achieve greater efficiency Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 8 I ZL •0 - of infrastructure design and installation through clustered or compact forms of development or to achieve greater sensitivity to environmental features, when the following minimum design principles are followed: a. Safe, efficient access. The circulation system shall be designed to provide safe, convenient access to all areas of the proposed development using the minimum practical roadway length. Access shall be by a public right-of-way, private vehicular or pedestrian way or a commonly owned easement. b. Internal pathways. Internal pathways shall be provided to form a logical, safe and convenient system for pedestrian access to dwelling units and common areas, with appropriate linkages off- site. C. Emergency vehicles. Roadways shall be designed to permit access by emergency vehicles to all lots or units. An access easement shall be granted for emergency and utility vehicles, as applicable, to use private roadways in the development for the purpose of providing emergency services and for installation, maintenance and repair of utilities. d. Principal access points. Principal vehicular access points shall be designed to provide for smooth traffic flow, minimizing hazards to vehicular, pedestrian or bicycle traffic. Where a PUD abuts a major collector, arterial road or highway, direct access to such road or highway from individual lots, units or buildings shall be prohibited disssas;agad when other reasonable access options are available. e. Snow storage. Adequate areas shall be provided to store snow removed from the internal street network and from off-street parking areas. (Ord. 4-1998 §1; Ord. 13-1998 §1; Ord. 1-1999 §1; Ord. 6-1999 §1) See. 16A-5-310. Review standards. In addition to demonstrating i4s compliance with the provisions of Section 16A-5- 300(c), General Restrictions, and with all other applicable provisions of this Code, a proposed PUD shall also comply with the following review standards: (1) Consistency with Comprehensive Plan. The PUD shall be consistent Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 9 13 - with the intent of the Town's Comprehensive Plan. (2) Preservation of community character. The development proposed for the PUD shall be consistent with the standards of Section 16A-4-340, Building Design Guidelines to Preserve Community Character, shall be compatible with, or an enhancement of, the character of existing land uses in the area and shall not adversely affect the future development of the surrounding area. (3) Landscaping. Proposed landscaping for the PUD shall provide sufficient buffering of uses from one another(both within the PUD and between the PUD and surrounding lands)to minimize noise, glare and other adverse impacts, shall create attractive streetscapes and parking areas and shall be consistent with the character of the Town. (4) Comply with development evaluation standards. The PUD shall comply with all applicable provisions of Article IV of this Development Code, Development Evaluation Standards. (5) Suitability for development. The property proposed for the PUD shall be suitable for development, considering its topography, environmental features and any natural or man-made hazards that affect its development potential. (6) Adequate facilities. The applicant shall show that: a. Adequate facilities will be provided to the PUD for water supply, sewage disposal, solid waste disposal, electrical supply, fire protection, roads and pedestrian circulation; b. The PUD has been located so as to be reasonably convenient in relation to police and fire protection, emergency medical services and schools; and c. The PUD will accommodate the efficient provision of transit facilities and services. (7) Spatial pattern shall be efficient. The PUD shall be located to avoid creating spatial patterns that cause inefficiencies in the delivery of public services, or that require duplication or premature extension of public facilities. a. Roads. Any new road developed to serve the PUD shall be Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 10 continuous and in alignment with existing platted streets to which the street is to be connected. Where appropriate, new streets shall be planned so that they can create an interconnected Town road network, with provision for adequate road and utility easements. Where cul-de-sacs are used in the development, the applicant is encouraged to provide a trail or similar pedestrian link between them. b. Water and sewer lines. Any water or sewer line extension necessary to serve the PUD shall be consistent with the Snowmass Water and Sanitation District's service plan and the Town's Comprehensive Plan. (8) Phasing. If the PUD is to be developed in phases, then each phase shall contain the required streets, utilities, landscaping and other improvements that are necessary and desirable for residents of the project. If the PUD incorporates any amenities for the benefit of the Town, such as trail connections, these shall be constructed within the first phase of the project, or, if this is not possible, then as early in the project as is reasonable. (Ord. 4-1998 §1; Ord. 13-1998 §1; Ord. 1-1999 §1) Sec. 16A-5-320. Sketch plan (a) Purpose. 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. The applicant is encouraged to provide a written or graphic description of any alternative ideas that were considered as the sketch plan was being prepared. It should be expected that the development proposal may evolve during the course of sketch plan review. (b) Sketch Plan Review Intent and Issues. To encourage the consideration of alternatives and to allow the sketch plan to evolve, overly detailed preliminary plan level sketch plans will not be considered. The questions the Planning Commission and Town Council should consider in a conceptual manner during review of the sketch plan (depending upon the size and complexity of the proposal) 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? Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 11 MOM 1 sr. (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 sixty-five percent (65%) 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? (3) Architecture and landscaping. Are the buildings proposed to be developed in appropriate locations? Is 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? (4) Natural resource and hazard areas. What are the natural resource and hazard areas on the property? Is mitigation appropriate? (5) Access and circulation. Is 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? (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? (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'? (8) Community welfare. Do the concepts contained in the proposed development promote the public health, safety and welfare? (c) Sketch Plan Review Procedures. The following procedures shall apply to an application for review of a sketch PUD plan. These procedures are illustrated in Figure 5-3, Sketch PUD Application Procedures (1) Pre-application conference. Attendance at a pre-application conference is mandatory prior to submission of an application for sketch PUD plan review. Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 12 - Ib - (2) Submission of application. The applicant shall submit an application to the Planning Director that contains the following materials: a. Minimum contents. The minimum contents for any application, as specified in Section 16A-5-40(b), Minimum Contents. b. Location map. A scale map showing the location and size of the site, and existing land uses, zone districts and major roads within three hundred(300) feet of the site. The name, location and boundaries of any subdivisions that are part of the larger tract shall also be shown. c. Statement of objectives. A written description of the proposed development. This shall include a statement of the objectives to be achieved by the planned unit development and a conceptual description of any proposed variations from the standards of the underlying zone district that are being requested. d.

Background: Article V of the Land Use Code was last discussed August 24. Staff received direction for six (6) specific areas to address at the next meeting: 1. Reconfigure the PUD section so that it is easier to follow the process for each application type. Add provisions to better define the line between Sketch and Preliminary Plan review. Add additional content requirements for Sketch Plan as discussed. 2. Incorporate language to better provide for site and architectural review of changes to existing buildings or new buildings within previously approved PUD's and development not currently covered by provisions of the Land Use or Building Codes. 3. Clarify that minor changes to a development during the course of development review by the Town Council may be referred back to the Planning Commission for their review and comment without necessarily requiring that the item be tabled by the Town Council. 4. Incorporate the unit equivalency chart for determining maximum buildout. 5. Provide enforcement guidelines that clarify the role and responsibility of staff when enforcing the provisions of the code. The enclosed material responds to Items 1-3 with the exception that staff believes that the code sufficiently distinguishes between the Sketch and Preliminary Plan review processes and will discuss that point during the meeting. The Unit Equivalency Chart has not been added yet. Staff would like to adjust the chart so that the unit equivalency for a single family unit of adequate size to house a typical family (approximately 2,000-2,500 s.f.)would have a unit equivalency of 1.0 and serve as a base line within the chart. The current chart has been included within the packet and an amended one, along with the zoning enforcement provisions (not yet completed)will be provided at the meeting if possible. Unit Equivalency will likely need to be completed at the September 18 meeting. In addition to the proposed amendments outlined above, staff would like to discuss amendments concerning: • Amendments added to clarify Section 16A-5-300(b)(3), Priority to first complete application. • The limit for granting variation approval to exceed the maximum height limit specified by the underlying zone district or PUD. • Discussion regarding the proposed amendments requiring a meeting with staff prior to scheduling the initial public hearing for the application. • The added provision enabling a project to exceed 100% of the maximum allowed buildout in exceptional circumstances. Staff would also like to discuss the "Community Purposes' provisions of the PUD section and the term "Community Benefits" to gain better direction from council regarding any further amendments that may need to be made prior to the September 18 meeting. Recommendation: Staff comments will be provided at that meeting. Provide direction to staff to proceed with for First Reading of Article V amendments at your September 18 meeting.

Planned Unit Development Sec. 16A-5-300. Purpose; overview; general restrictions. (a) Purpose. The purpose of the planned unit development(PUD)process is to permit variations from the strict application of certain tho-standards of the Town's zone districts in order to allow flexibility for landowners to creatively plan for the overall development of their land and thereby, to achieve a more desirable environment than would be possible through the strict application of the minimum standards of this Development Code. Specifically, it is the purpose of the planned unit development process is to: (1) Allow creativity. Allow a creative approach to the development and use of land and related physical facilities to produce better developments and to obtain amenities for the public. (2) Allow variations. Allow a developer variations from certain requirements of the underlying zone district,provided such variations are consistent with the Comprehensive Plan, and will result in benefits for the community. (3) Maximize choice. Maximize choice in the type of environments available to the public. (4) Preserve natural features. Create patterns of development that preserve valued environmental resource lands and avoid the development of natural hazard areas. (5) Efficient land use patterns. Relate residential, commercial and community facilities in a manner that promotes cost effective transportation systems and population distribution, and enhances pedestrian access and movement that might not otherwise be achieved under the strict application of the requirements of underlying zoning. (6) Ensure public input. Ensure appropriate levels of public input to the planning process, so that sensitive areas of the community can be developed in accordance with community goals and objectives. (b) Overview of PUD Procedure. A PUD application shall be reviewed pursuant to Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 1 4 �� the procedures and standards of this Section. (1) Major or Minor PUD. The procedures applicable to a particular PUD are dependent on whether the project is classified as a minor or a major PUD. The criteria for classifying projects as major or minor are described in Table 5-3, Criteria for Classifying PUD's as Major or Minor. If a proposed development activity does not fit within the criteria listed in the table, then the Planning Director shall determine whether the proposal should be classified as a major or minor development, taking into consideration whether or not it would be beneficial for the Town to review a sketch plan of the proposed development. TABLE 5-3 CRITERIA FOR CLASSIFYING PUD'S AS MAJOR OR MINOR MkJW-PVW' ML6to>I Ai3J A major PUD is a project that meets A minor PUD is a project that meets all of the any of the following criteria: following criteria: New Development New Development • Contains more than four(4) • Contains no more than four(4) dwelling/hotel/lodge or other dwelling/hotel/ residential units. lodge or other residential units. • Contains more than four thousand • Contains no more than four thousand (4,000)sq.ft.of nonresidential space.

(2) Steps in PUD review process. A major PUD shall be processed according to the following review steps, as further described herein: a. Sketch PUD plan review by the Planning Commission and Town Council. b. Preliminary PUD plan review by the Planning Commission. Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 2 _. 6 __ G. Preliminary PUD plan review by the Town Council. d. Final PUD plan review by the Town Council. A minor PUD shall be processed according to the same review steps as a major PUD, except that a minor PUD shall not be required to proceed through sketch PUD plan review. (3) One (1) major PUD under review. Unless otherwise authorized by resolution of the Town Council, there shall only be one (1) major PUD application under review by the Planning Commission and one (1) other major PUD application under review by the Town Council at any time. The Planning Director shall establish€orate procedures to administer this policy, based on the following provisions: a. Priority to first complete application. Scheduling priority shall be given to the first complete major PUD application received, provided that: i. Any project that has received sketch plan approval shall receive scheduling priority upon submission of its preliminary and final plan applications; and ii. Any major PUD application that the Town Council determines serves a public purpose shall receive scheduling priority over all other development applications. b. Requests for additional information. In order to allow for development review to proceed in a timely and fair manner, applicants who are requested by the Planning Commission or Town Council to submit additional information or to amend their application which are necessary for the uninterrupted continuous review shall submit a complete package of the requested materials to the Planning Director at least seven (7) days prior to the next scheduled meeting of that board. If an applicant does not submit the requested materials in a timely manner or if the applicant requests that the processine of their application be delayed, the next prioritized application will be scheduled before that review board. However, once the applicant submits a complete package of the requested materials to the Planning Director or the applicant has requested that the review of their application recommence, the application shall receive the next available scheduling priority. as r Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 3 determined by the Planning Director, over all other development applications. The provisions of this paragraph shall also apply to a submission being processed under the provisions of Chapter 16. C. Sketch plan review accommodation. If the processing status of an existing application with scheduling priority allows, the Planning Director may schedule a new sketch plan application for review before the Planning Commission or the Town Council at meetings that do not delay the processing of the existing application. (c) General Restrictions. Although one(1) of the purposes of these PUD regulations is to provide flexibility in the land development process, this Section is intended to define the limits of that flexibility. The following restrictions shall apply to all PUD's: (1) Minimum land area. There shall be no minimum land area qualification in order to be eligible to apply for a PUD, provided that PUD approval shall not be granted solely to permit variations to develop a single lot, building or use. (2) Location. A PUD may be developed on any land located within the Town. (3) Uses. The land uses permitted in a PUD shall be limited to those uses that are allowed, or are allowed by special review, in the underlying zone district. (4) Maximum buildout. The Comprehensive Plan contains an analysis of future buildout of single-family subdivisions and other developments within the Town limits. It identifies the maximum number of future lots/units and commercial/other space that may be developed within each subdivision, narcel or other development. The Unit Equivalency Chart, found in Table 5-4, defines what constitutes a unit by distinguishing between the various dwelling types and sizes and specifying an equivalency factor to be utilized to establish the number of future buildout units that will be generated by the proposed development. If the Town Council determines that the PUD complies with the applicable provisions of this Subsection(c), General Restrictions, the standards of Section 16A-5-310, Review Standards, and any other applicable provisions of this Code, then a PUD may develop up to, but not more than, sixty-five percent (65%) of the maximum number of future lots/units and commercial/other space r Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 4 identified for that subdivision or other development in the buildout analysis. The Town Council may approve a buildout that is less than or greater than sixty-five Percent(65%), based on the following standards: a. Lesser buildout. A lesser buildout may be approved by the Town if, during the evaluation of the compliance of the PUD with the applicable review standards, it is determined that there are site specific physical constraints on the property that would limit its appropriateness for buildout, (such as the presence of wetlands, flood plains, steep slopes or wildlife habitat), or the applicant has been unable to adequately provide public improvements or services necessary for the development, or the buildout would be incompatible with surrounding land uses or with the character of the community as described in Section 16A-4-340, Building Design Guidelines to Preserve Community Character, or if other pertinent limitations are identified. b. Greater buildout. A greater buildout, 99kip to but not mom thim 9049F davelopmeniq may be approved if the Town Council finds that the PUD achieves one(1) or more of the purposes described in Subsection(c)(6), Community Purposes for PUD's, and the PUD complies with the other applicable provisions of this Subsection (c), General Restrictions, the standards of Section 16A-5-310, Review Standards, and any other applicable provisions of this Code. No buildout may be permitted to exceed one-hundred Percent(100%) of the maximum number of future lots/units and commercial/other space listed for that subdivision, Parcel or other development, except that under unique and exceptional circumstances, sufficiently demonstrated by the applicant, a reconsideration and amendment of the future buildout analysis chart allocation for that subdivision,parcel or other development may be considered. The Town Council shall then adopt an ordinance, approved by at least three-quarters ffi)of the members of the Town Council present and voting amending the future buildout analysis chart and identifving the reasons why the amendment is warranted. < INSERT TABLE 5-4, UNIT EQUIVALENCY > (5) Dimensional limitations. Certain dimensional limitations applicable to Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 5 the property may be varied within a PUD. The limitations that may be vaned are those of the underlying zone district; or, for properties for which a PUD or other development plan has previously been approved, the limitations set by that approval. For any property designated PUD or SPA without an underlying zone district, the PUD process shall be used to rezone the Property to a zone district containing dimensional limitations in order to establish the applicable dimensional limitations for the property. Only the following dimensional limitations may be varied: a. Maximum allowable height of any structure within the PUD; b. Minimum open space requirement for the PUD; C. Maximum allowable floor area of the PUD; d. Minimum area of lots within the PUD; and e. Minimum setbacks for buildings within the PUD. A dimensional limitation may be vaned when the Town Council finds that the PUD achieves one (1) or more of the applicable purposes listed in Subsection (c)(6), Community Purposes for PUD's, that granting of the variation is necessary for that purpose to be achieved, and that the resulting development will be consistent with the provisions of Subsection (c)(7), Standards for Granting of Variations, and Section 16A-5-310, Review Standards. (6) Community purposes for PUD's. The Comprehensive Plan identifies certain purposes the community intends to achieve as it develops. The following purposes shall be used in determining whether the buildout for a PUD may exceed eighty a°°p @-cent (854)sixty-five Percent L6m of that identified in the buildout analysis and whether any of the parcel's dimensional limitations should be varied: a. Provision of restricted housing. A parcel's maximum buildout may be achieved and its dimensional limitations may be varied to offer an incentive to applicants to provide more restricted housing within the PUD than would otherwise be required€er-the devslepmet4 by this Development Code, particularly in those priority locations for such housing identified within the Comprehensive Plan. b. Encourage sustainable development. A parcel's maximum Article V Amendments Sept.11,2000 TC Meeting 6 _. gyp buildout may be achieved and its dimensional limitations may be varied to encourage sustainable development within the Town that Wigs so diversifies the mix of lodging, retail and dining uses and that is consistent with the intent of the Comprehensive Plan. (Delete?) C. Provide open space and/or avoid wildlife habitat. A parcel's maximum buildout may be achieved and its dimensional limitations may be varied to provide necessary site planning flexibility to enable the development to provide more and/or higher quality gfeateF 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. A parcel's dimensional limitations may be varied (but its maximum buildout may not be achieved) to 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. C. Develop necessary public facilities. A parcel's maximum buildout may be achieved and its dimensional limitations may be varied to 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 consistent with the intent of the Comprehensive Plan and the Town's goals and obiectives. 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. Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 7 ._ I ( -- Achieving one (1) or more of the applicable numoses listed above does not, by itself, grant any development entitlement for the buildout of a PUD to exceed sixty-five percent (65%) of that identified in the buildout analysis or for any of the parcel's dimensional limitations to be varied. (7) Standards for granting of variations. Any PUD that requests any of the variations authorized in Subsection (c)(5), Dimensional Limitations, shall also comply with the following standards: a. Height. A request to increase the maximum allowable height for any building or structure may be approved by the Town Council, provided at least fifty percent (50%) of a building or a- structure's footprint and volume within the PUD conforms to the height limits of the underlying zone district. b. Open space and minimum lot area. A variation to reduce the minimum open space requirement or to reduce minimum lot area (in order to cluster lots)may be permitted if: i. Such variation will not be detrimental to the character of the proposed development or to surrounding properties; ii. The proposed development shall include open space for the mutual benefit of the entire development; and iii. The open space that is provided is accessible and available to at least all dwelling units and lots for which the open space is intended. C. Minimum building setbacks. Minimum building setbacks shall be established by the PUD plan, provided adequate distance shall be left between buildings for necessary access and fire protection, and to ensure proper ventilation, light, air and snowmelt between buildings, and to minimize the effects of transmission of noise between units and between buildings. (8) Parking. The number of parking spaces in the PUD shall be that required for the underlying zone district, unless a reduction in that requirement is granted, pursuant to Section 16A-4-310(c), Reduction of Required Parking. (9) Road standards. A PUD may be permitted to deviate from the Town's road standards, to enable the development to achieve greater efficiency r Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 8 __ I ZL .- of infrastructure design and installation through clustered or compact forms of development or to achieve greater sensitivity to environmental features,when the following minimum design principles are followed: a. Safe, efficient access. The circulation system shall be designed to provide safe, convenient access to all areas of the proposed development using the minimum practical roadway length. Access shall be by a public right-of-way, private vehicular or pedestrian way or a commonly owned easement. b. Internal pathways. Internal pathways shall be provided to form a logical, safe and convenient system for pedestrian access to dwelling units and common areas, with appropriate linkages off- site. C. Emergency vehicles. Roadways shall be designed to permit access by emergency vehicles to all lots or units. An access easement shall be granted for emergency and utility vehicles, as applicable, to use private roadways in the development for the purpose of providing emergency services and for installation, maintenance and repair of utilities. d. Principal access points. Principal vehicular access points shall be designed to provide for smooth traffic flow, minimizing hazards to vehicular, pedestrian or bicycle traffic. Where a PUD abuts a major collector, arterial road or highway, direct access to such road or highway from individual lots, units or buildings shall be prohibited disewmaged when other reasonable access options are available. e. Snow storage. Adequate areas shall be provided to store snow removed from the internal street network and from off-street parking areas. (Ord. 4-1998 §1; Ord. 13-1998 §1; Ord. 1-1999 §1; Ord. 6-1999 §1) Sec. 16A-5-310. Review standards. In addition to demonstrating i4s compliance with the provisions of Section 16A-5- 300(c), General Restrictions, and with all other applicable provisions of this Code, a proposed PUD shall also comply with the following review standards: (1) Consistency with Comprehensive Plan.

(3) Landscaping. Proposed landscaping for the PUD shall provide sufficient buffering of uses from one another(both within the PUD and between the PUD and surrounding lands)to minimize noise, glare and other adverse impacts, shall create attractive streetscapes and parking areas and shall be consistent with the character of the Town. (4) Comply with development evaluation standards. The PUD shall comply with all applicable provisions of Article IV of this Development Code, Development Evaluation Standards. (5) Suitability for development. The property proposed for the PUD shall be suitable for development, considering its topography, environmental features and any natural or man-made hazards that affect its development potential. (6) Adequate facilities. The applicant shall show that: a.

The questions the Planning Commission and Town Council should consider in a conceptual manner during review of the sketch plan(depending upon the size and complexity of the proposal) 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? Article V Amendments Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 11 (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 ° sixty-five percent (65%) 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? (3) Architecture and landscaping. Are the buildings proposed to be developed in appropriate locations? Is 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? (4) Natural resource and hazard areas. What are the natural resource and hazard areas on the property? Is mitigation appropriate? (5) Access and circulation. Is 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? (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-4-3 10, Off-Street Parking Standards? (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? (8) Community welfare. Do the concepts contained in the proposed development promote the public health, safety and welfare? (c) Sketch Plan Review Procedures.

Article V Amendments ��1 Sept. 11,2000 TC Meeting 51 COUNCIL COMMUNIQUE Meeting Date: September 11, 2000 Presented By: Linda Sandals, Citizen Grant Review Board Chairman Subject: Board Grant Recommendations Overview: Please find attached the 2001 grant funding recommendations for your review (Grants- at-a-Glance). The Citizen Grant Review Board met for several days in August to review 32 grants submitted to the Town Council for their yearly budgeting process and for funding consideration. After much discussion and careful consideration, the Board feels strongly that these grant recommendations are the minimal amounts that should be donated. Due to this year's revenue shortfall, the Board entered into their decision-making process with the intention of not spending all the money normally budgeted. Board Chairman, Linda Sandels, and other members of the Citizen Grant Review Board, will be available at this meeting to discuss their recommendations and answer any questions regarding the criteria that was used to make their decisions and the reasoning behind them. Recommendation: Discuss Board recommendations. Make changes if deemed necessary. p:/shared/derklboardslarts/suboom miftees/grants/200-2007 GRANTS AT A GLANCE For 2001 Budget Town of Snowmass Villa e CULTURAL ARTS & RECREATIONAL 2001 2000 1999 1998 Key Requests Donation Donation Donation Anderson Ranch Arts Center P3 15,000 10,000 12,000 11,000 Aspen Ballet Company& School* 5,000 - As en Choral Society* 10,000 -Aspen Community Theater* 2,000 - -Aspen Dance Connection 4,500 -0- -Aspen Historical Socie ty 4,500 1,000 - - Aspen Music Festival & School 3,000 3,000 3,000 3,000 Aspen Theater in the Park ♦b 8,000 2,000 - Aspen Valle Ski/Snowboard Club 10,000 6,000 3,500 3,000 Project Graduation 2001 1,500 1,000 1,000 750 Spellbinders 1,250 1,250 1,000 - 2001 BUDGET=$44,10046,305 TOTAL 64,750 41,250 $39,100 $51,900 ' Kevs: * =First time applicant Rl=Rec'd financial account. statement for 1999 on Time �=Rec'd financial account. statement for 1999 V GRANTS AT A GLANCE For 2001 Budget Town of Snowmass Villa e CHARITABLE AND SERVICE 2001 2000 1999 1998 ORGANIZATIONS Key Requests Donation Donation Donation Asistencia Para Latinos(APL) (b 3,000 3,000 Aspen/Basalt Care Clinic 2,840 2,500 2,500 1,750 Aspen Camp School for the Deaf 5,000 4,000 4,000 2,000 Aspen Counseling Center a! 3,000 3,000 3,000 31000 Aspen Foundation (b 1 1,250 1,250 750 750 Aspen Institute Fb 2,500 -0 1,000 750 Aspen Wilderness Workshop' 4,000 - Aspen Youth Center 4,000 3,500 3,500 3,000 Columbine Home Health Care Services (b 2,000 2,000 Community Health Services 4• 12,000 11,000 10,000 8,000 Independence Pass Foundation 2,000 1,000 1,000 500 Leadership Aspen a' 750 600 550 500 ' Little Red Schoolhouse("Add'I Request-Bus (b 19,881 10,000 9,500+ in 10,000 Service) kind bus service Neighbor to Neighbor (} 5,000 1,500 1,500 1,000 Pitkin County Senior Services (b 3,500 3,000 2,000 1,500 Response 3,500 3,000 3,000 1,500 Roaring Fork Hospice 5,000 5,000 - Roaring Fork Legal Services 2,000 1,500 500 Sopris Therapy Services (b 3,750 2,000 - - Valley Partnership for Drug Prevention 5,482 4,000 6,000 1 4,000 Youth Zone(Garfield Youth Services) 94 2,500 2,5001 1,500 1 1,000 2001 BUDGET=$77,000-84,700 92,953 76,850 1 $66,300 $67,000 TOTAL Keys: * = First time applicant _ (Add'I Request for In kind Service) Rb=Rec'd financial account. statement for 1999 on Time e!= Rec'd financial account. statement for 1999 _ I r ' 9/11/00 Notes to Council, regarding the BID September 7"', research was done to qualify accurate information regarding district acreage and valuation(s). The following information was gathered from the Pitkin County Clerk and Assessors offices. These numbers include lots 2 W at Silvertree Hotel. Total district acreage: 4.481 Total acreage of petitioners: 2.868 *Petitioners are at 64% of total acreage Total district assessed valuation: $13,370,740.00 Total assessed valuation of petitioners: $7,749,510.00 'Petitioners are at 58% of total valuation Please note the numbers used for these purposes are different than those used to create a financial plan. Again the numbers we used meet state statutes' requirements. Also, SVRA has sent a letter stating their Board of Governors has agreed to contribute $30,000.00 per year. This amount may or may not account for SVRA office space. The letter did note that a final decision will likely be within an Executive Committee during their October annual board meeting. Attached you will find a copy of the financial plan. r FINANCIAL PLAN CONCERNING THE CREATION OF A BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT A Business Improvement District, as outlined in the petition before the Snowmass Town Council, proposes the following: That this Business Improvement District be formed with the single purpose of raising funds to create additional parking in the immediate vicinity of the Snowmass Village Mall. These funds would come from two sources: 1-A per square foot tax assessment on all leasable space within the boundaries of the District. This space would include all heated, rental space whether currently leased or used for proprietary purposes. This tax is proposed to be the $1.00 per square foot per year for the term of the bonded debt (20 years anticipated). 2-In lieu of taxes the Snowmass Resort Association has agreed to remit the sum of $32,000/ per year for the term of the debt, this sum approximates the square footage of the current conference center. The Business Improvement District as proposed consists of approximately 160, 000 square feet. Of this 128,000 are subject to a tax assessment per item #1 above. The square footages need to be independently audited but the petitioners believe these numbers to be conservative estimates. Current bond information assumes a 20-year indebtedness and a 6.25% interest. This financial plan proposes that the above taxes be instituted and that the collection of these taxes will contribute approximately $1,650,000 to the anticipated construction cost of the mall area transit center and parking as planned.
