The Integration and inclusion of disabled individuals in sports recreation has become an important objective worldwide. Challenge Aspen has prevailed in becoming one of the most recognized disability programs in the world. spc*" rn Motion,the premier distributor of adaptive ski equipment worldwide,is the official sponsor of this Symposium. Thera is a recognized tread for ongoing education in adaptive skiing and sports recreation within international communities. Challenge Aspen has been instrumental in providing the knowledge and expertise that we have acquired to build disability awareness,train instructors and assist in establishing adaptive ski programs in Siam Nevada,Spain,Les Gets,France and Akurgd,Iceland. Now we have the opportunity to take it a step further! This weeklong Symposium is geared to international instructors,trainers or individuals involved in the disability field who are interested in learning about or fathering their education in new initiatives in adaptive skiing and the'fundamentals of establishing an adaptive skiing program in their community. This will enable international clientele to confidently leave with tools and a comprehensive understanding of adaptive skiing to integrate disabilities into their own ski school or establish a new program. It's not all about skiing either... Before the Symposium kicks off,out international guests will have the opportunity to join an adventuresome and scenic fourday tour of Lake Powell aboard an accessible 50-foot houseboat. 50%of the guests have disabilities and will enjoy sea kayaking In the spectacular landscape and deep,clear water of Lake Powell,Utah.

Box 5010 Snowmass Village,CO 81615 Dear Jennifer, Challenge Aspen appreciates the opportunity to submit the enclosed application for support from the Town of Snowmass Village. We are seeking support for funding of two AmeriCorps Volunteer positions. Over the past year,the assistance of one AmeriCorps Volunteer has been of significant help in enabling us to improve and expand our services within the Roaring Fork Valley. Based on our positive experience, we would now like to add another Volunteer to our staff. This summer CA's AmeriCorps Volunteer, for example, initiated and conducted a diverse activities program for local children with disabilities and their families. The Roaring Fork Valley offers a wealth of recreational and cultural opportunities, and this program is opening doors to experiences not previously available to these children. The AmeriCorps Volunteer program benefits not only the people Challenge Aspen serves and the community,but it also benefits the volunteers themselves. They grow as leaders, develop abilities that will be useful in any careers they undertake, and have experiences they will remember for the rest of their lives. We are grateful for the Town's generous assistance with our work in the past as well as for your kind consideration of our current request.

Challenge Aspen provides a vital service to the Town of Snowmass Village by making available resources that enable both residents and visitors with disabilities to participate in sports, recreational,and cultural activities. Challenge Aspen is the only organization in the Roaring Fork Valley that offers such a broad range of opportunities to people with disabilities, their families, and their friends. Since it's founding in 1995,Challenge Aspen has become an integral part of community life in Snowmass Village. It both enhances the diversity of the community, and it helps attract new visitors. For example, in the winter of 1999-00,Challenge Aspen served 337 participants. For each participant, an additional 4.5 friends or family members visit Snowmass Village and Aspen. One in five families in America has a family member with a disability, and more than 50 million Americans have either a mental or physical disability. Unable to recreate with friends and loved ones, those who are disabled experience chronic isolation as they continually confront not only the limitations of their disability, but also the needless barriers presented by the lack of adaptive programs, resources, volunteers, and guides for the blind. Challenge Aspen believes that access is the key to participation, and that through participation, people with disabilities can break through barriers, unite with family and friends, and gain the self-esteem, confidence, and skills they need to lead fulfilling, productive lives. By providing adaptive equipment, trained staff and volunteers, special instruction and financial assistance,and working in conjunction with the Aspen Skiing Company and local outfitters, Challenge Aspen opens the doors that enable people with disabilities to take part in the wide variety of activities available in the Roaring Fork Valley. Working together with more than 100 volunteers, Challenge Aspen opens doors not only for people with disabilities, but for all members of our community. Testifying to its contributions to the community, readers of the Aspen Daily News voted Challenge Aspen the"Best Organization to Volunteer For" in 1998. IL AGENCY INFORMATION Mission, Goals, and Objectives. The mission of Challenge Aspen is to improve the quality of life for people with physical or mental disabilities. CA is dedicated to �♦ 1 10/06/2000 13:06 9709237338 CHALLENGE ASPEN PAGE 10 providing year-round access to a wide range of sports, recreational, and cultural activities for those with disabilities. Family and friends are encouraged to share in these activities. Disabilities include special needs(attention deficit disorder, Down's syndrome, autism,cerebral palsy,brain injury, learning disabilities, mental disabilities), spina bifida, amputations, hearing impairments, visual impairments, and spinal cord injuries. We believe that all people have the same essential needs and that realizing one's abilities leads to fulfillment Participation in Challenge Aspects programs often results in improved self-image and greater self-confidence. By successfully learning a new skill or undertaking a new activity previously considered impossible, the participant develops an attitude of"It's what I can do, not what I can't do that's important" Their Challenge Aspen experiences often give participants the courage to achieve personal goals in other areas of their lives,enabling them to become more independent Believing that we can make a difference in the life of an adult,children, or family, CA pursues its mission of"making possibilities for people with disabilities." History. Co-founded by Amanda Boxtel and Houston Cowan in December 1995, Challenge Aspen was established when it assumed responsibility for the 25-year-old adaptive ski program that had previously been conducted by the Aspen Skiing Company. In its first year, CA provided access and professional skiing instruction to 120 people. Responding to the needs of the disabled community,Challenge Aspen quickly evolved to a year-round program. In 1998, the local chapter of B.O.L.D. (Blind Outdoor Leisure Development) transferred day-today responsibility for its program for the visually impaired to Challenge Aspen. The program is now conducted out of CA's Snowmass Village headquarters; previously it had been conducted from B.OL.D.'s Aspen office.This arrangement enabled the two nonprofits to consolidate services, resources,and volunteers, thus expanding and improving the opportunities for visually impaired people who live in and visit our area. Today,Challenge Aspen has a full-time staff of eight, more than 100 volunteers, an operating budget of$635,179, and an active volunteer Board of Directors. Current Programs and Activities. In the winter months,Challenge Aspen provides participants with access to sports activities such as Alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, skating, and sledding. As the flagship program, downhill skiing continues to serve the largest number of participants. On an average day, 15 to 20 disabled skiers receive personal assistance, including guides for the blind, specially trained instructors, adaptive equipment, and trained volunteers. 46 - 2 10/06/2000 13:06 9709237338 CHALLENGE ASPEN PAGE 11 In the summer, activities include whitewater rafting, horseback riding, paragliding, kayaking, fishing, and jeep tours. Cycling, rock climbing, and tennis are also made possible through the use of adaptive equipment Challenge Aspen cooperates with outfitters to devise ways to make these opportunities accessible to people with disabilities. Last summer,CA assisted 55 people, for a total of 263 participant days. In addition,Challenge Aspen works in cooperation with the Roaring Fork Valley's arts community, including Anderson Ranch Center for the Arts, Red Brick Art Center, Wheeler Opera House, and Aspen Art Museum,to provide cultural opportunities that make it possible for individuals and groups to experience the beauty of the world. Individual Programs. Many volunteer"buddies" generously donate their time to make Challenge Aspens individual and group programs possible. Buddies are trained volunteers who ski, guide, ride,float and climb, with participants. They also sing, laugh, smile, and understand. With advance notice, volunteers are available to work with participants every day. Trained in all areas of adaptive activities, CA volunteers are well versed in meeting the needs of the resident or visitor with special needs. For those who want training in a sport such as Alpine skiing, certified instructors are available for a nominal fee through our program staff. Group Programs. Challenge Aspen hosts several group programs throughout the year—Mono-Ski Camp,Visually Impaired Ski Fest The Wilderness Experience-Rock Climbing and The Magic of Music and Dance for Children with Disabilities. CA is able to tailor specialized programs for schools and groups of people with mental and physical disabilities of all ages. Scholarships. We at Challenge Aspen believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains. To reduce costs to participants, CA has established a Scholarship Fund to help individuals and their families who otherwise could not afford our programs and who meet our criteria. At least two individuals per group or camp require full Scholarships and at least two individuals need partial Scholarship assistance. Generous individuals, foundations, and corporations who wish to make a difference often contribute Scholarship funds and air miles. Through the generosity of our supporters,CA was able to offer 85 participants the necessary Scholarships to enable them to participate in our programs last year alone. This number represents nearly one-fifth of our yearly attendance.Visually impaired and blind participants generally require even more financial aid than other disabled participants. Challenge Aspen provides Scholarships to at least 60% of blind and visually impaired participants. Accomplishments. In March 2000, Challenge Aspen helped establish an adaptive program for disabled people in Akureyri, Iceland.Attesting to the caliber of its work, q ' ' 3 10/06/2000 ' 13:06 9709237336 CHALLENGE ASPEN PAGE 12 Challenge Aspen has appeared on a number of national television programs. In 2000, Life Time Cable("The Things You Do for Love")and Good Morning America ("Icelandic Video Diary") have featured Challenge Aspen. The organization also receives coverage from local media.Aspen Magazine, for example, once again featured Challenge Aspen in 2000. Board of Directors. James D.

Houston Cowan, Executive Director. Houston left Chicago and the construction business in 1990 after reading an article on a blind skier. Fascinated by what he read, he wanted to learn how to guide and teach visually impaired people to ski. Upon arriving in Aspen, he met Ed Lucks, one of the early pioneers of adaptive skiing. Ed became Houston's mentor in learning how to teach all aspects of disabled skiing. In a short time, Houston was fully certified by the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) as an adaptive instructor. In the early 1990's, Houston met Amanda Boxtel who had been paralyzed in a skiing accident Convincing her that she could still ski, he taught her how to ski in a mono-ski. This experience changed their lives as shortly thereafter they embarked on a mission to start a year-round adaptive program, which officially became Challenge Aspen in 1995. Houston has helped make Challenge Aspen one of the premier disabled programs in the country. Mardeil Burkholder, Managing Director. Mardell, a native of Colorado,joined the Challenge Aspen staff in 1999. Active in the Aspen community, she has over 20 years of nonprofit management experience.Open to new possibilities, she hopes to take 10/06/2000' 13:06 9709237338 CHALLENGE ASPEN PAGE 13 Challenge Aspen to a whole new level through collaboration and co-creation. Mardell holds a Master's in counseling/education, and is a certified conflict resolution mediator. Prior to joining the staff, Mardell was familiar with Challenge Aspen and its programs and decided that she wanted to transfer her passion for making a difference in the world by encouraging others to realize and act on the belief that each of us can make a difference in the lives of those around us. Amanda Boxiei, Special Projects Director. Originally from Australia, Amanda, arrived in Aspen in 1988. On February 27, 1992, her world was radically changed. While skiing at Snowmass, a freak accident left her paralyzed. Two years later Amanda realized what her life's purpose was to be. With co-founder Houston Cowart' Amanda began developing one of the best adaptive programs in the country,which today is Challenge Aspen. Skiing has become one of Amanda's favorite activities, and she has developed a gift and vision of teaching others with similar disabilities from her mono-ski. Amanda's philosophy is: "To be able to give another with a disability the opportunity to experience the exhilaration and freedom of gliding on the snow exemplifies my vision and Challenge Aspen's vision of the disabled teaching the disabled. To gain you must give something away. To give back is the greatest gift of all." IlL PURPOSE OF GRANT Goals and Objectives. Challenge Aspen is seeking support from the Town of Snowmass Village to help us add a second AmeriCorps Volunteer to our staff in 2001. In the Roaring Fork Valley,Colorado Mountain College coordinates a "Community Collaboration Team" that brings 10 AmeriCorps Volunteers to the Valley to work with "at risk" youth and their families. In 2000, Challenge Aspen was fortunate to have the services of one AmeriCorps Volunteer, and an additional AmeriCorps Volunteer position has been approved by CMC for 2001. The objectives for the purpose of this grant are to continue to expand and improve the services that Challenge Aspen offers to the increasing number of people participating in its programs. During the past three years, the number of participants has increased by more than 350 percent. In turn, Challenge Aspen has enlarged the opportunities available through its program, program staff, adaptive equipment; and volunteers. The AmeriCorps Volunteer performs more as a full-time staff member or intern than as a volunteer. The 2000 Americorps Volunteer, for example, initiated and is currently conducting a summer program that provides organized daily activities for local children with disabilities and their families. Both individual and small group activities are offered. Activities include trips to the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies, libraries, arts centers, and Aspen Youth Center, as well as any special individual activity in which a participant might be interested such as a play, a bicycle ride, or a day spent painting. go 5 10/06/200Q ' 13:06 9709237338 CHALLENGE ASPEN PAGE 14 Supplementing Challenge Aspen's year-round camps, this program provides a service to local children that was not previously available. It has created more opportunities for local children with disabilities, encouraging them to be active in the community, to set and achieve goals, and to have fun-dust like any other kids. The program is also increasing awareness of disabilities among both the organizations with which Challenge Aspen is working and in the community at large. AmeriCorps Volunteers are a valuable resource for Challenge Aspen and the residents and visitors it serves. CA competes with dozens of other nonprofit organizations throughout the Roaring Fork Valley for a relatively small pool of available year-round volunteers. Many people are part-time residents, and many who live here year-round often work several jobs, leaving no time for volunteerism. CA has found AmeriCorps Volunteers to be committed, responsible, capable, and willing to learn about various disabilities. Description of Activities Planned to Accomplish These Goals and Objectives. Responsibilities of these 11-month positions include assisting with all aspects of programming, as well as coordinating activities for local participants in the summer months. The two AmenCorp staff members will work with volunteers, participants, instructors, and staff. They will help coordinate and conduct all Challenge Aspen programs for individuals as well as for groups and also maintain complete and accurate programming and participant records. In addition to the camps listed below, Challenge Aspen will provide access to recreational services to anyone with a disability who lives in or visits the Roaring Fork Valley. As in the past, Challenge Aspen will continue to work closely with local outfitters to make its services accessible to all people. Timetable for Implementation. 5th Annual Mono-ski Camp,January 7-12, 2001 Visually Impaired Ski Festival, January 28- February 3, 2001 Children's Art Camp,June 2001 Children s Music and Dance Camp, July 2001 Rock Climbing Camp, August 2001 Wheelchair Outdoor Camp,August 2001 Partners. As part of their agreement, AmeriCorps contributes$4500 per year to Challenge Aspen toward payroll expenses for each AmeriCorps staff position. Cooperating with the Aspen Skiing Company, Challenge Aspen is able to offer discounted passes and tickets to disabled local residents and to visitors. The Skiing Company also provides complimentary daily ski passes,which are used by CA 10/06/2000 ' 13:06 9709237338 CHALLENGE ASPEN PAGE 15 volunteers. In the summer, Anderson Ranch Arts Center assists with the children's art camp. CA also works with the following local outfitters to make outdoor activities accessible: Colorado Riff Raft and Blazing Adventures assist with whitewater rafting; The Outfitters in Snowmass Village,with fishing; and Snowmass Stables,with horseback riding. In addition to these businesses, Challenge Aspen collaborates with the following nonprofit organizations by lending adaptive equipment,instructors, and volunteers to their participants when needed: Sunshine Kids, Kids Stuff,Aspen Camp School for the Deaf,Silver Lining Ranch, and Mountain Valley Developmental Services. CA also assists the local school districts on school"ski days," providing the equipment and volunteers that children with disabilities need to ski and making it.possible for them to recreate with their classmates. Additional General Support. Please see enclosed copies of news articles and letters of support. IV. EVALUATION Measurable Results. • Increased confidence and self-esteem in more than 400 participants with disabilities. • Many sports, recreational, and cultural experiences will be shared with families and/or friends. • Challenge Aspen will serve more than 60 disabled Roaring Fork Valley residents. • Families and individuals will choose Snowmass Village as their vacation destination because of the programs made available through Challenge Aspen. • Challenge Aspen will host at least six week-long camps for children and adults with special needs. • An increase in participant days from the previous year. • Increased training of adaptive assistants, volunteers and guides for the blind. Defining and Measuring Success. • Increased confidence measured in the short-term by surveys and questionnaires that are completed by each participant and family. Long-term effects are measured by updates from the participant and family from year to year, and by recording progress notes and maintaining files on every participant. This information is used by the Board of Directors, Executive Director, and Program Director to respond to the ever-changing needs of the constituents. • Increased number of families traveling to Snowmass, measured by the Friends and Family Survey that each participant completes. O10► 7 10/06/2000' 13:06 9709237336 CHALLENGE ASPEN PAGE 16 • Well-attended camps and quality instruction, measured by the number of participants who attend each camp and feedback of participants,families, and instructors. • Increased number of people with disabilities participating in Challenge Aspen programs, measured by tracking and comparing participant numbers. • Well-trained volunteers, measured by participant and volunteer feedback as well as by an increased number of returning volunteers. Using and Disseminating Results. • Enhance the quality and quantity of programs and services offered to people with disabilities who live in and visit Snowmass/Aspen • Increase community awareness regarding the issues of accessibility that people with disabilities face. • Market services to provide opportunities for increased numbers of people with disabilities. V. FUNDING Sources of Funds. Challenge Aspen will receive$9,000 ($4,500 for each position) from AmeriCorps in 2001 for the two AmeriCorps Volunteer positions. Long-Term Sources. These positions might eventually be funded from general operating sources such as gifts from individual supporters. Overall Urgency. Every year the demand for Challenge Aspen's services grows. The expense of securing and retaining qualified staff is the largest cost of operating most nonprofits, and Challenge Aspen is no exception. Utilizing AmeriCorps Volunteers is a relatively inexpensive way for CA to obtain competent staff members that enable it to improve and expand programs for the community. Implications of Partial Funding. Challenge Aspen would have to reduce program-related expenses in other areas to fund these positions. ��• 8 SNOWMASS VILLAGE TOWN COUNCIL PUBLIC HEARING CONTINUATION OF PUBLIC HEARING PUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT A PUBLIC HEARING WAS CONTINUED FROM THE 09-18-00 TOWN COUNCIL MEETING AS FOLLOWS: WHEN: August 14, 2000 Continued to August 21, 2000 Continued to September 5, 2000 Continued to September 18, 2000 Continued to October 2, 2000 WHERE: Snowmass Village Town Council Chambers 2nd Floor, Snowmass Center 0016 Kearns Road, Snowmass Village WHY: To receive public comment regarding Town Council Resolution No. 25, Series of 2000, a resolution concerning the Parcel "N" Affordable Housing Preliminary Plan submission, including subdivision plat and rezoning from SPA-1 to MF Multi-Family.

Topics: ❑ Review any new information from Applicant. ❑ Consistency with General Restrictions and Review Standards (Staff) ❑ TC direction to staff regarding the enclosed resolution Overview: Amendments to the Parcel "N"Affordable Housing Preliminary PUD application were accepted at the October 2 Town Council meeting. The development proposal: 1) reduced the number of units from seventeen (17) to sixteen (16) units; 2) reduced the number of buildings from three (3)to two (2); 3) increased the distance between the Ridge property line and nearest building to forty (40) feet; 4) more than tripled the distance between the Ridge property line and parking/turn-around surface; and 5) increased the separation distance between the carports and trail for additional landscaping. It was determined that it would not be necessary to refer the amendments to the Planning Commission for review as the Applicant agreed that it would be more appropriate to present the Final PUD submission to them for recommendations. The Applicant may wish to provide additional information regarding the Staff Comments: amended development proposal. Staff comments will then be provided at the meeting discussing consistency with the General Restrictions and Review Standards specified within the Land Use Code. A draft resolution has been enclosed for discussion purposes and staff requests further direction to complete the document. Staff Staff recommends that the topics listed within the "Subject" block Recommendation: above be discussed during the regular meeting. It would be very helpful to receive direction for completing the draft resolution.

WHEREAS, the Town of Snowmass Village Housing Department (the "Applicant") has submitted on behalf of the Town of Snowmass Village (the "Landowner") a request for approval of the Parcel "N" Affordable Housing Preliminary Plan submission (the 'Project'), including subdivision plat and rezoning from SPA-1 to MF Multi-Family; and WHEREAS, the application concerns Parcel N, Faraway Ranch Subdivision, according to the Gross Parcel Plat recorded March 18, 1985 in Plat Book 17 at Page 5 of the records of the Pitkin County, Colorado Clerk and Recorder ('Parcel N"); and WHEREAS, Town Council Resolution No. 3, Series of 1999 ('Resolution 3"), was approved on January 18, 1999, granting Sketch Plan approval for the Faraway Ranch South Specially Planned Area (SPA); and WHEREAS, said approval included Parcel N and identified said parcel as an appropriate site for employee housing for up to, but not exceeding, twenty- two (22) units; and WHEREAS, Parcel N was subsequently conveyed to the Landowner and withdrawn from the Faraway Ranch South project at that time; and WHEREAS; the Town of Snowmass Village Planning Director has reviewed the Preliminary PUD application for the Project and determined that it should be reviewed as a Major Planned Unit Development ('PUD") application in accordance with the procedures specified within Section 16A-5-300(b) of the Snowmass Village Municipal Code (the "Municipal Code"); and WHEREAS, said procedure requires an initial Public Hearing and Preliminary PUD Plan review by the Planning Commission; and WHEREAS, posted, mailed, and published notice of a public hearing to be held before the Planning Commission on July 19 and August 2, 2000 were provided in accordance with the public notice requirements of Section 16A-5-60 of the Municipal Code; and aw 8 TC Reso.00-25 Parcel N Prelim.Plan Page 2 WHEREAS, the Planning Commission reviewed the Project and received public comment during the regular meetings which occurred on those dates; and Whereas, the Planning Commission then conditionally recommended approval, by a vote of three (3) in favor and two (2) opposed, at their meeting which occurred on August 9, 2000; and Whereas, those Planning Commission members who were opposed indicated that they felt the Applicant failed to sufficiently show that it was not possible to avoid the thirty percent (30%) slope areas through the reduction in the number of units; and WHEREAS, posted, mailed, and published notice of a public hearing to be held before the Town Council on August 14, 2000 were provided in accordance with the public notice requirements of Section 16A-5-60 of the Municipal Code; and WHEREAS, the Town Council reviewed the Project and continued to receive public comment during regular meetings which occurred on August 21, September 5, 18, and 25 and on October 2 and 9, 2000; and WHEREAS, the Town Council conducted their review of the Project to consider all relevant materials and testimony in order to evaluate whether the Project development proposal complies with Section 16A-5-300(c), General Restrictions, and Section 16A-5-310, Review Standards of the Municipal Code and whether the preliminary plan submission by the Applicant responded to the direction given by the Town as stated within Resolution 3; and WHEREAS, the Town Council closed the public hearing and completed it's review of the Preliminary PUD application for the Project on October 9, 2000, and, in doing so, has fully considered the recommendations of the Planning Commission and Town staff and the relevant written and verbal testimony provided by the public during the course of their review of the Project application; and WHEREAS, the Town Council finds that the adoption of this Resolution is necessary for the immediate protection of the public health, safety and welfare. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Town Council of the TC Reso.00-25 Parcel N Prelim.Plan Page 3 Town of Snowmass Village, Colorado, as follows: Section One: General Findings. The Town Council finds generally as follows: 1. The Applicant submitted the application for Preliminary Plan Review of the Project in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 16A of the Municipal Code. The Preliminary PUD Plan application provided the Minimum Contents required pursuant to Section 16A-5-40(b), and included written and graphic materials pursuant to Section 16A-5-350, in sufficient detail to deem the application complete for review. Supplemental information had been submitted by the Applicant during the review process in response to staff, public and Planning Commission requests, comments, and concerns. To the extent, if any, that the original submission is different from the information used by the Town Council in the preparation of this resolution, the amended submission material meets the intent and satisfies the requirements of Chapter 16A of the Municipal Code. 2. The Town Council finds that all Municipal Code requirements concerning the provision of public notice related to the project and public hearings thereon, including publication, posting, and mailing of notices, have been satisfied and that all Preliminary PUD application materials have been made available to the general public within a reasonable time to permit adequate review of the project. The Town Council further finds that the changes made by the Applicant during the Preliminary PUD review process were generally in response to directions and suggestions offered during the Public Hearings and that the public and Town Council had ample opportunity to consider such changes. 3. The Town Council, during the Preliminary Plan review, considered alternative development schemes for the property in response to public comment and at the suggestion of the Planning Commission. The Applicant presented alternatives that included various structure locations and configurations within the Project area, including scenarios demonstrating what the effect would be upon the Project if modified to avoid areas containing thirty percent (30%) slopes. During the September 18 Town Council meeting, the Applicant presented four (4) alternative site plans that their geotechnical engineers, CTL/Thompson Inc. ("CTL"), had been requested to evaluate and then comment regarding the slope stability relating to each alternative and difficulties associated with locating structures further uphill. Following aI an TC Reso.00-25 Parcel N Prelim.Plan Page 4 consideration of each alternative and the engineer's recommendations, the Applicant agreed to develop an amended development proposal that incorporated the direction received during that meeting. 4. The Applicant presented the amended development proposal at the October 2 Town Council meeting and requested that the amendment be accepted without needing referral to the Planning Commission for further review. As shown on Exhibit A and further described within the letter attached as Exhibit B, the amended Project would: 1) reduce the number of units from seventeen (17)to sixteen (16) units; 2) reduce the number of buildings from three (3) to two (2); 3) increase the distance between the Ridge property line and nearest building to forty (40) feet; 4) more than triple the distance between the Ridge property line and parking/turn- around surface; 5) increase the separation distance between the carports and trail for additional landscaping and 6) be consistent with the recommendations of the geotechnical engineer. The Town Council accepted the amended application at that time and found that it would not be necessary to refer the application back to the Planning Commission, but rather, to have them review the Final PUD application when submitted. 5. Since portions of the proposed development will still be located within thirty percent (30%) slope areas, a three-quarters (3/4) majority vote of the Town Council will be required to authorize development within these areas pursuant to Section 16A-4-50(d)(4) of the Municipal Code. It must be successfully demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Town Council that the "development" is unable to avoid the steep slopes. After reviewing numerous design alternatives attempting to avoid the thirty percent (30%) slope areas, the Town Council received additional testimony from the Applicant's engineer concerning the potential soils problems, drainage and slope stability issues associated with locating structures further uphill and within areas containing thirty percent (30%) slopes. In addition to limitations caused by the physical constraints of the property, it became apparent that other alternative designs would result in a loss of existing vegetation, reduction in open space and potentially create a greater visual impact upon surrounding property owners. The Town Council hereby finds as follows: a) The Applicant successfully demonstrated: 1) the subject parcel has historically been identified specifically as a location for employee housing; 2) that the "development" has been modified 411 No TC Reso.00-25 Parcel N Prelim.Plan Page 5 to the extent practicable to minimize the involvement of thirty percent (30%) slope areas and has been reduced in scale to now involve sixteen (16) quality affordable housing units; 3) that the buildings have been designed and located so as to not compromise open space or existing vegetation and to preserve the westerly views for the Ridge Condominium unit owners; 3) to relocate the buildings further uphill will undermine those objectives as well as actually increase the potential for slope instability; 4)that the "development' would no longer be viable if it were necessary to remove additional units for the purpose of entirely avoiding thirty percent (30%) slope areas; and 5) the proposed building locations will not cause greater slope instability or increase the potential for slope failure. b) John Mechling, with CTL, provided cross sectional details through the site to address the advantages to locating the buildings at the base of the slope, as proposed, rather than to realign and locate them further uphill. His professional opinion at that time was that the thirty percent (30%) slope areas could be reinforced and retained such that the proposed development will not cause greater slope instability or increase the potential for slope failure and that there would be no significant risk that damage to adjacent property will result from the proposed construction. Of the alternatives provided, he stated that the Project as now proposed was the safest and best way to develop the site. To develop further uphill will likely decrease the Factor of Safety ("FOS") and cause significantly greater development costs. c) After determining that there was little real practical benefit to relocating the units uphill to avoid the thirty percent (30%) slope areas, the Town Council then considered whether those areas be avoided through a reduction in the number of units. The primary objectives were to balance the community need for and benefit of quality affordable housing, ensure a safe development and assure an equitable application of the Land Use Code. d) By a vote of in favor and against, the Town Council considered the above issues and decided to allow the sixteen (16) units to remain at the locations shown on the Project site plan for the following reasons: 1) It was satisfactorily demonstrated that it was not feasible to 93 40 TC Reso.00-25 Parcel N Prelim.Plan Page 6 move units further up the hill when the recommendation of CTL was to avoid doing this as it would affect the viability of the development without improving the stability of the slope or safety of the Project. 2) That locating the units at the toe of the slope is the safest and best way to develop the site and the project, if properly designed and constructed, and that the development could occur in a manner that would not endanger surrounding properties. 3) A redesigned project which entirely avoids all thirty percent (30%) slope areas would likely disturb more area within the site, be more visually obtrusive to surrounding property owners and significantly compromise the open space currently being proposed. 4) A redesigned project which entirely avoids all thirty percent (30%) slope areas would likely not be possible as an affordable housing development. 6. The subject area is identified on the Comprehensive Plan Environmental Sensitivity Map as being within the Brush Creek Impact Area. As such, the Applicant submitted information evaluating the potential impacts of the development on Brush Creek and its associated riparian habitat and wetlands. The Town Council has reviewed the information and evaluated the recommendations to determine whether consistency exists with the development evaluation standards found in Section 16A-4-30 of the Municipal Code. Specifically, the Town Council finds: a) The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have concurred with the findings of Wright Water Engineers, Inc. that the Project does not contain any waters, including wetlands, subject to their regulatory authority under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. b) Any Final PUD submission should include both interim and final erosion control plans as discussed within the Schmeuser Gordon Meyer ("SGM") letter attached as Exhibit C of this resolution. The Final Grading Plan must demonstrate that vegetation removal has been minimized to the greatest extent feasible and the Final PUD submission shall include a restoration plan for all disturbed areas. V TC Reso.00-25 Parcel N Prelim.Plan Page 7 c) The SGM letter notwithstanding, the final water quality control structure, as discussed within Exhibit C, must ensure that this development and site will not introduce organic or inorganic pollutants into Brush Creek. The Town Council directs that the Applicant continue to further develop the concept and create the best possible design solution, which may be more extensive than as described within the SGM letter. 7. The current zone classification for the Subject Property is SPA-1 Specially Planned Area. Section 16A-3-40(5) of the Municipal Code discusses the general purpose for the Specially Planned Area (SPA-1 and SPA-2) zone districts and specifies that development proposals within those districts are to be submitted and reviewed pursuant to the provisions of Article V, Division 3, Planned Unit Developments, and that those provisions will apply to establish and define the zoning parameters for the development. General Restriction No. 3 of the PUD regulations, however, states that "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." The appropriate zone district for the proposed project, based on both the Sketch Plan and this Preliminary Plan proposal, is the MF Multi-Family zone district as it permits multi-family residential uses and the Applicant's proposal will be consistent with dimensional limitations specified for that zone district. 8. Chapter Six, Future Land Use Plan, of the Comprehensive Plan identifies the subject area as being part of the Faraway Ranch South (Parcel K & N) Comprehensively Planned Area (CPA). As such, the preferred development plan identified these elements: a) Employee housing could be included. b) Low-density, high occupancy, multi-family residential housing units could be included. c) A mixed-use recreation center at the base of Assay Hill could be included. d) Enhancement of the skier and pedestrian trails shall be included. e) Faraway Road/ Brush Creek Road intersection improvement shall be included. f) Grouped development that provides for the maximum preservation of open space shall be included. g) Connection to the Snowmass Center and the Base area shall be included. As - TC Reso.00-25 Parcel N Prelim.Plan Page 8 The Town Council finds that, with the exception of elements b, c and e, which were addressed within the Timbers at Snowmass project, the above elements have been satisfactorily incorporated into the development proposal. 9. Section 16A-3-40(6)b. of the Municipal Code also identifies elements of the Comprehensive Plan that could be considered in the development of the Faraway Ranch South (Parcel K & N) CPA, namely: (1) Low density, high occupancy, multi-family residential housing; (2) Mixed use recreation center at the base of Assay Hill; and (3) Employee Housing. The Town Council finds that only Element 3 appropriately applied to Parcel N and is satisfied by this affordable housing application. 10.The Town Council has, to the extent necessary for and pertinent to a Preliminary Plan level of evaluation and review, determined that the application is generally consistent with the provisions of Section 16A-5- 300(c), General Restrictions, of the Municipal Code ("Restrictions"), as discussed below and/or subject to satisfying the applicable conditions contained within Section Four of this resolution. 11.The Town Council has, to the extent necessary for and pertinent to a Preliminary Plan level of evaluation and review, determined that the application is generally consistent with the provisions of Section 16A-5- 310, Review Standards, of the Municipal Code ("Standards"), as discussed below and/or subject to satisfying the applicable conditions contained within Section Four of this resolution. a) The Preliminary Plan identifies land uses that are consistent with the Town of Snowmass Village Comprehensive Plan (the "Comprehensive Plan") Future Land Use Map in that the subject area is identified as being intended for Multi-Family Residential uses. b) The Applicant has committed a southerly portion of the parcel to Open Space that is larger in area than what has been identified as the minimum required for the MF Multi-Family zone district. 12. The Town Council finds that the proposed project generally complies with the directions established by the Town in the Sketch Plan approval resolution and with subsequent guidance from the Planning Commission during Preliminary Plan review, as discussed below TC Reso.00-25 Parcel N Prelim.Plan Page 9 and/or subject to satisfying the applicable conditions contained within Section Four of this resolution. a) The Sketch Plan resolution stated that there may be potential, subject to further investigation and review, for up to 22 restricted employee housing units (50 bedrooms) within Parcel "N". The Applicant's proposal is for 16 units and forty-two (42) bedrooms involving 27,481 square feet. The Project proposes less units and bedrooms than had been contemplated at Sketch Plan. b) The Sketch Plan also specified that the restricted units should not exceed three (3) floors and a roof section, or the thirty-eight (38) foot height limit. The Project satisfies these limits. c) Condition No. 4 of the Sketch Plan resolution states: "No detailed evaluation occurred of the development proposal for Parcel "N" as shown in Exhibit A and the Town Council is not commenting on the specific site design shown. This test of employee housing potential should be designated in the Preliminary PUD Plan. Development within Parcel "N" should not involve natural slopes exceeding thirty percent (30%),..." Finding No. 9 (Slopes) of the Sketch Plan resolution essentially states the provisions of Section 16A-4-50 of the Municipal Code which prohibits development within thirty percent (30%) slope area except in certain specific circumstances. Portions of the Project will extend into areas of that type and will require that the Town Council, by a vote of at least three-fourths (3/4) of the voting members, identify the reasons why the development is unable to avoid the steep slopes and, therefore, allow the Project to extend into these areas. The Applicant has presented reasonable design solutions regarding the geotechnical, groundwater and drainage issues related to the Project. All of these items were matters of concern during Sketch Plan review. The Town Council accepts the solutions proposed by the applicant for addressing drainage, the stability of the Project area and adjacent hillside and its development within thirty percent (30%) slope areas. 13.The landscaping plan was amended by the Applicant and has been TC Reso.00-25 Parcel N Prelim.Plan Page 10 included as part of Exhibit A. The plan no longer involves planting within the Ridge Condominium property. The Applicant also represents that no work, including the placement of the reinforcement walls and/or tie- backs, will be extending onto Ridge property. The Town Council has reviewed the amended landscape plan and finds that it is sufficient for the purposes of Preliminary PUD review. The Applicant should coordinate with the Ridge Condominium Association to further refine the planting schedule within the area between their property and the Project. The placement of spruce, fir or other evergreens should be carefully considered so that the mature trees will not obstruct their views. 14.The Town Council has reviewed and generally accepts the proposed colors and materials for the Project. The Final PUD architecture, colors and materials be referred to the Planning Commission for review and comment. 15.The Town Council is aware that the Timbers at Snowmass project included Parcel N, with a potential for twenty-two (22) restricted sales units, within the traffic analysis submitted with their Preliminary PUD application. The road improvements proposed by them for Faraway Road and the Faraway/Brush Creek Road intersection was supported by sufficient traffic information to indicate that the LOS would not exceed the limits specified within the Municipal Code. The Town Council reviewed their Final PUD Plan and found their proposal would represent a substantial improvement to the roadway which sufficiently addressed their project's impacts as well as somewhat improve inadequate conditions that existed as well. The Town Council is aware that there is still a substantial concern by the Planning Commission that, during winter conditions, the Faraway Road uphill traffic will have difficulty making the top of the hill as a result losing momentum when delayed by traffic slowing, stopping or turning into either side of the Timbers project or by a Town shuttle entering traffic from the bus stop on the uphill side of the road; however, does not believe that this concern is one that should be addressed by this Applicant. 16.The Town Council recommends that more detailed information be included within the Construction Management Plan submitted as part of the Final PUD regarding: a) Fugitive dust control, the "mud racks" and how the Town Q11 40 TC Reso.00-25 Parcel N Prelim.Plan Page 11 roadways will be kept clean during construction. b) How construction worker parking be handled. c) Limiting the hours of operation from 8:OOam — 5:OOpm from mid- December through March in order to reduce the noise impacts upon Ridge unit owners and renters. Section Two: Thirty Percent (30%) Slopes. The Town Council, by a vote of at least three-quarters (3/4) of the members present and voting, hereby authorize development on slopes greater than thirty percent (30%) for those structures and improvements shown on Exhibit A, in accordance with Section 16A-4-50(d)(4), Other Circumstances, of the Municipal Code. Such direction to the Applicant shall not constitute a decision to authorize development which may only occur following adoption of an ordinance pursuant to Section 16A-5- 360, Final Plan Review Procedure, of the Municipal Code. Section Three: Action. To provide for the welfare and safety of the public and to ensure that the development proceeds in accordance with community goals and objectives, the Town Council hereby grants authorization to the Town of Snowmass Village Housing Department to apply for Final PUD Plan development review, including final plat and rezoning, of Parcel N and the Parcel "N" Affordable Housing project. Said Project is as described within their Preliminary PUD application dated June 1, 2000 being amended as described within Exhibits A and B which are incorporated herein by this reference as if set forth at length. Further, this authorization shall be subject to the requirements of Chapter 16A of the Municipal Code, the findings stated within Section One above and the conditions specified within Section Four below. Section Four: Conditions for Final PUD Submission. 1. The Final PUD Plan shall comply with the revised Preliminary PUD application approved pursuant to this resolution, except as otherwise noted in these conditions. 2. The PUD Guide Plan and Condominium Documents submitted as part of the Final PUD application will contain sufficiently detailed use provisions defining the Project's approved and functional structure such that it would violate the terms and conditions of the Final PUD Plan to violate the parking/operational plan or to amend the Condominium Documents in the future so as to nullify the ability of the Association and/or Town to enforce the provisions that: 1) limit the TC Reso.00-25 Parcel N Prelim.Plan Page 12 number of pets; 2) prohibit the storage of inoperable vehicles or the dismantling and repair of vehicles within the uncovered parking areas; 3) regulate outside or deck storage; 4) specify that the carports and garages should be used for vehicle storage only except for attic or other storage which may otherwise be enclosed; 5) ensure proper maintenance of the Project; or 6) specify permitted window coverings. 3. The Final PUD application must include an Engineer's Opinion as specified within Section 16A-4-50(d)(5) of the Municipal Code which provides an opinion from a professional geotechnical engineer licensed in the State stating: 1) that the thirty percent (30%) slope areas affected by the Project are not prone to instability or failure; 2) that the proposed development will not cause greater slope instability or increase the potential for slope failure; and 3) that therefore, there will be no significant risk that damage to adjacent property will result from the proposed construction. If any risk to adjacent property is found, the geotechnical engineer shall describe the design considerations or construction techniques that are to be incorporated within the development to mitigate the risk of damage to adjacent property from the proposed development. 4. Any Final PUD submission shall include both interim and final erosion control plans as discussed within the Schmeuser Gordon Meyer letter attached as Exhibit C of this resolution. The Final Grading Plan must demonstrate that vegetation removal has been minimized to the greatest extent feasible and the Final PUD submission shall include a restoration plan for all disturbed areas. 5. The Final water quality control structure, as discussed within Exhibit C, shall ensure that this development and site will not introduce organic or inorganic pollutants into Brush Creek. The Town Council recommends that the Applicant continue to further develop the concept and create the best possible design solution. 6. The Applicant shall coordinate with the Ridge Condominium Association to further refine the landscaping plan within the area between their property line and the Project. 7. No work is permitted to extend beyond Parcel N without the written authorization of the Ridge Condominium Association or applicable land owner. -3b . TC Reso.00-25 Parcel N Prelim.Plan Page 13 8. The Final PUD plan application shall contain more detailed information describing the manner and means by which the existing condition of the adjacent Ridge units will be documented and control monitors will be placed in order to identify existing or any future slope movements within the area between the Ridge Condominiums and the Project and such control monitors will be provided by the Applicant. Monitoring results will be made part of the public record and provided to the Ridge Condominium Association upon request. 9. The Final PUD plan shall be presented to the Planning Commission for their review and recommendations pursuant to Section 16A-5-360(4) of the Municipal Code.

Box 5010 Snowmass Village, Colorado 81615 RE: PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO PRELIMINARY PUD PLAN FOR PARCEL N Dear Chris, I am the designated representative for the Town of Snowmass Village Housing Office, the applicant for a proposed deed restricted affordable housing project to be located on Parcel N of the Faraway Ranch. The application was submitted to the Planning Department on June 1,2000 and received preliminary plan approval from the Planning Commission via their Resolution 25, Series of 2000 on August 9, 2000. Following Planning Commission approval, the public hearing process by the Town Council was initiated. During the course of this process, the applicant has analyzed the findings of the Planning Commission and the conditions applied by the Commission as part of its approval. The applicant has also paid close attention to the comments made by neighbors, who have raised concerns about certain elements of the project. The applicant is now proposing to amend the project, in direct response to the Planning Commission Resolution and the public comments we have received. A site plan and a landscape plan illustrating the proposed amendments were submitted to you under separate cover. As shown on the site plan, the applicant now proposes 16,rather than 17 affordable housing units. The units have been consolidated into two buildings, as compared to the original plan to develop three buildings. The project will contain 10 three bedroom units and 6 two bedroom units, for a total of 42 bedrooms. This compares to the original preliminary plan submission, which included 10 three bedroom units and 7 two bedroom units, for a total of 44 bedrooms. The floor area of the two buildings will be 27,481 sq. ft,,which is about 1,600 sq. ft. less than the original three buildings would have contained. The total size of all buildings on the site (including carports and detached garages) will be 32,971 sq. ft., which is nearly 2,500 sq. ft. less than was originally proposed for the site. 23 so Mr. Chris Conrad EXHIBIT "B" October 2, 2000 TC RESO. NO. 25, SERIES OF 2000 Page Two (Page 2 of 3) The revised plan will accommodate 47 parking spaces, rather than the 49 spaces proposed in the original plan. This means the same parking ratio will be provided as was proposed for the original preliminary plan - 3.5 spaces for each three bedroom unit and 2 spaces for each two bedroom unit, an overall ratio of 1.1 spaces per unit. The proposed amendments make several important improvements to the project. First, Building 1 and the parking/turn around area have been moved further away from the property boundary. This ensures that all project construction, including the soil nails that will be used to retain the hillside, will be able to occur within the limits of the property. Furthermore,the additional setback area that has been created provides room for significant landscaping to be installed, as shown on the revised landscape plan. This additional landscaping is proposed in response to Finding #10 of Planning Commission Resolution 25. The amendments will also provide important visual benefits to our neighbors. Building 1 has been moved further away from the closest buildings at the Ridge Condominiums,without also having to move to a significantly higher elevation on the property, The end of the building will have a one story element stepping up to a two story and then to a three story element, which will provide a more pleasing visual transition for these owners. The amendments also allow the applicant to provide a positive response to Finding #12 of Planning Commission Resolution 25. The applicant has been able to reduce the "wall effect" by moving the carports back and increasing the landscaping and berming that will occur in front of the carports. The roof of the carports will be stepped along the hillside, which will also help to break up the massing of these structures. in summary, we believe that the proposed amendments represent improvements to the project that are in direct response to the discussions held by the Planning Commission, the findings and conditions imposed by the Planning Commission, and the comments we have received during the public hearing. For this reason, it is our position that there is no reason for the Town Council to send this application back to the Planning Commission for re- consideration. The Planning Commission has already considered the issues that are associated with these amendments and in fact, directed that changes of this type be considered by the applicant. Furthermore, we believe there are two compelling public purposes that will be served by proceeding forward with approval of these amendments by the Town Council at this time. First, there is an urgent need in the Town for the type of affordable housing being proposed by this project, and moving forward will allow this housing to be provided to needy residents of the Town. Second, if Town Council grants approval at this time and permits the applicant to proceed with installing the site drain and other utilities,it will allow construction of the buildings to begin early next spring. This will mean that construction of this project and the adjacent Timbers project will occur at the same time, thereby minimizing the length of time that neighbors must endure construction in this area. Mr. Chris Conrad EXHIBIT "B" October 2, 2000 TC RESO. NO. 25, SERIES OF 2000 (Page 3 of 3) Page Three For all of the above reasons, we request that the proposed amendments be allowed by the Town Council without additional hearings,as authorized by Section 16A-5-340(T)(c)of the Land Use and Development Code.

NO. 25, SERIES OF 2000 (Page 1 of 2) Mr. Joe Coffey Town of Snowmass Village P.O. Box 5010 Snowmass Village, Colorado 81615 RE: Drainage and Water Quality at Parcel N, Snowmass Village Dear Joe: As you are aware, there appears to be some uncertainty of the intended drainage and water quality improvements at the proposed employee housing project known as Parcel N. In effort to provide clarity I offer the following. BACKGROUND The site consists of approximately 3.45 acres of undeveloped land located just northeast of the intersection of Brush Creek Road and Faraway Road, and adjacent to Brush Creek. Proposed development of the lot will consist of the 17 multi-family units with associated common space and parking area. Access to the site will be through the forthcoming multi-unit project, The Timbers, which is adjacent to the south. Adjacent to the site to the east lies The Ridge condominiums. DRAINAGE Runoff calculations for the onsde conditions were performed using the Rational Method. Runoff coefficients of 0.35 for existing and proposed vegetated areas and 0.90 for proposed parking and building areas were used for the 10-yr and 25-yr runoff evaluations. The runoff coefficients were increased by 10% for 100-yr evaluations to adjust for antecedent soil moisture conditions and variability in statisticai data. Detention options were evaluated for the 10-yr storm event only with routing provisions for events of greater magnitude. The site was analyzed as a single drainage basin which include the contributing areas on the adjacent parcel, The Ridge. In all, the basin analyzed encompassed 4.60 acres, the majority of which is undeveloped land covered with native vegetation. Currently, approximately 18% of the basin is developed with impervious surfaces such as buildings and asphalt. After development approximately 37% of the basin will be impervious surface. As such, it has been estimated that an additional 1.612.3 cis will be generated by the development the 10-yr/100-yr storm events, respectively. Runoff from the offsite areas will be collected onsite via inlets to be located with the natural swales at newly created collection points. Runoff within the proposed developed area will be intercepted by newly graded swales and routed to grated inlets. The parking area will be graded to sheet flow to the north end of the parking area where the surface waters will be collected in grated inlets. All flows captured by the grated inlets noted above will be directed through piping to a water quality control structure. EXHIBIT "C" TC RESO. NO.25, SERIES OF 2000 (Page 2 of 2) Due to the extreme topographic constraints of the site, there are only two options for handling the increased runoff generated by the proposed site development. The first option is capture the incremental increase of runoff and detain in underground storage vessels. The second option is to directly release the runoff to Brush Creek after routing the surface runoff through a sedimentation and water quality structure. Because the incremental increase in runoff is essentially negligible during storm events, and since there are no downstream developments that will be adversely affected, the second option is recommended with the runoff being directly discharged to Brush Creek. EROSION CONTROL Grading and Erosion Control shall be performed as per the Grading and Erosion Control plans prepared and submitted to the Town for approval. It is the intent of these plans to limit the amount of disturbance in as much as possible and to control the erosion through the strategic placement of proven erosion control devices, such as sift fence and hay bales. Erosion control during construction will be provided though the implementation of the above stated measures, and after construction erosion control will be permanently provide through re-vegetation of all disturbed areas. WATER QUALITY Water quality within Brush Creek will be maintained in three ways. First, no development or disturbance is planned within the existing riparian area along the creek, with the exception of some minor disturbance during bike path re-alignment and water quality control outlet construction. Second, both temporary and permanent erosion control measures will be- implemented as outlined above. And lastly, the water quality control structure will intercept all surface flows across developed portions of the site and will effectively reduce sediment loads and trap oil and grease. CONCLUSIONSIRECOMMENDATIONS A minimal increase over existing flow rates will occur due to the proposed development. However, when the dynamics of the watershed are considered as a whole, the small increase from the development is negligible and direct release to Brush Creek should not be problematic. To ensure water quality within Brush Creek, both temporary and permanent erosion control measures will be implemented, and all flows across the proposed development area will be routed through a water quality control structure. The water quality control structure will consist of a baffle system for sediment deposition and oil and grease removal. I hope that this helps clarify the intent of our drainage report and erosion control plans.

COUNCIL COMMUNIQUE Meeting Date: October 9, 2000 Presented By: Planning Division Chris Conrad, Planning Director Subject: Discussion and First Reading: Ordinance No. 20, Series Of 2000, an ordinance granting the Snowmass Village Housing Department conditional authorization to commence certain construction activities within Parcel N, Faraway Ranch Gross Parcel Plat. Topics: ❑ Applicant discussion regarding request ❑ Staff discussion regarding enclosed ordinance ❑ First reading of enclosed ordinance Overview: The Snowmass Village Housing Department ("Applicant') has requested approval to commence certain construction activities within Parcel N, Faraway Ranch Gross Parcel Plat, prior to receiving Final PUD approval for the Parcel "N"Affordable Housing Preliminary PUD application. The work will be limited to: 1) creating an access road into the site; 2) installing safety and silt fencing; 3) the placement of interim erosion control measures; 4) the installation of the interceptor trench drain uphill of the proposed building locations as directed by the soils engineer; 5) grading the parking lot area as allowed by the soils engineer; and 6) preparing the site for winter. Staff Comments: Section 16A-5-340(9), Effect of preliminary plan approval, states that approval of a preliminary plan only grants authorization for the applicant to prepare and submit a final PUD application. It does not grant permission to proceed with construction of any aspect of the development proposal. For this reason, an ordinance is necessary to authorize work to commence prior to final PUD approval. In actuality, the described work could possibly be considered to be minor in nature which could proceed independent of any PUD process. Staff Staff recommends first reading approval of the enclosed ordinance. Recommendation: Second Reading will occur on October 16.

WHEREAS, the Snowmass Village Housing Department (the "Applicant") has requested authorization from the Town of Snowmass Village (the "Town") to commence certain construction activities within Parcel N, Faraway Ranch Gross Parcel Plat; and WHEREAS, the construction activities involve what would be the initial site development phase of the Parcel "N" Affordable Housing project (the "Project"); and WHEREAS, said work will be limited to: 1) creating an access road into the site; 2) installing safety and silt fencing; 3) the placement of interim erosion control measures; 4) the installation of the interceptor trench drain uphill of the proposed building locations as directed by the soils engineer; 5) grading the parking lot area as allowed by the soils engineer; and 6) preparing the site for winter; and WHEREAS, Town Council Resolution No. 25, Series of 2000, which was adopted on October , 2000, concerned the Parcel "N" Affordable Housing project Preliminary PUD and granted authorization for the Applicant to prepare and submit the final architectural, civil, and site drawings that are customarily included as part of the Final PUD application; and WHEREAS, during the course of the Preliminary PUD review process the Applicant and Town Council discussed the various geotechnical and ground water issues relating to the project site and the advantages of being able to commence installation of the interceptor trench drain as soon as possible before the winter ground freeze and commencement of the spring run-off; and WHEREAS, the subject interceptor trench drain and other construction activities described above are consistent with the Project's Preliminary PUD development proposal; and WHEREAS, it was generally found that the subject drain system, if properly designed and constructed, would aid in the stabilization of the hillside and could be installed independent of the other improvements proposed as part of the Project PUD; and OV Ordinance No.20,Series of 2000 Page 2 WHEREAS, this Ordinance only concerns granting authorization for the Applicant to commence the specific construction activities listed above prior to receiving any Final PUD approval; and WHEREAS, the Town Council finds that the adoption of this Ordinance is necessary for the immediate protection of the public health, safety and welfare. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE TOWN COUNCIL OF THE TOWN OF SNOWMASS VILLAGE, COLORADO, as follows: Section One: Findings: In consideration of the Applicant's request, the Town Council finds as follows: 1. The geotechnical studies submitted during the Preliminary PUD process have considered on-site and neighboring property conditions. The Engineer's Opinion describes the Applicant's design considerations and construction techniques that will be incorporated within the interceptor trench drain system to ensure that said work will occur and the improvements will be placed in a manner that will not cause greater slope instability or increase the potential for slope failure of the surrounding hillside. 2. It is the responsibility of the Applicant's professional engineers and contractors to design and construct the proposed system such that there will be no significant risk that damage to adjacent property will result from the proposed trench drain installation. 3. The Town Council finds, based upon the information provided and Applicant's representations, that the interceptor trench drain, if properly designed and constructed under strict supervision of the geotechnical engineers, reflect generally accepted engineering, civil and/or structural design practices and standards which could be expected to be reasonably effective in mitigating the risk of damage to adjacent property. 4. The Town Council finds, based upon the information provided and Applicant's representations, that the proposed construction activity and improvements, if properly designed and constructed under strict supervision of the geotechnical engineers, would not cause greater slope instability, increase the potential for slope failure or present a 00 IK- Ordinance No.20,Series of 2000 Page 3 significant risk that damage to adjacent property will result from the proposed construction. 5. The Town Council does find that it is desirable to commence this construction of the de-watering facilities prior to the Spring run-off and onset of the rising water tables. They further find that sufficient understanding has been gained during the Preliminary PUD review and in reviewing the submission documents to allow the Applicant to make permit application for the subject construction activities in order to commence development prior to their Final PUD to the extent authorized pursuant to any building permit approval that may be granted by the Town Community Development Department. 6. Recognizing the significance of the construction activity proposed and that the work is of a nature and scale that is beyond the scope of the Town's typical building permit inspection program, the Town Council finds that a project of this type should have some form of specialty inspection and reporting mechanism occurring during the course of construction. 7. Any such permit so issued may only be exercised at the Applicant's own risk. Section Two: Authorization. The Town Council hereby authorizes the Applicant to submit and the Community Development Department to accept for review a building permit application for certain construction activities within Parcel N, Faraway Ranch Gross Parcel Plat. Said application involves: 1) creating an access road into the site; 2) installing safety and silt fencing; 3) the placement of interim erosion control measures; 4) the installation of the interceptor trench drain uphill of the proposed building locations as directed by the soils engineer; 5) grading the parking lot area as allowed by the soils engineer; and 6) generally preparing the site for winter. Further, the authorization granted shall be subject to the conditions specified within Section Three below. Section Three: Conditions of Authorization. 1. No construction activities, including the drainage trench system installation, may occur until such time as the necessary Town permits have been reviewed, approved and issued by the appropriate Town departments. The Applicant and/or landowner shall be responsible for completion of the permitted work within the specified time-frame and to 04600 Ordinance No.20,Series of 2000 Page 4 satisfy all other terms and conditions of any Town permits issued. 2. The Applicant shall provide a construction management plan specific to the work described within this ordinance for review and approval by the Planning Director. During the ski season, trucks will not be operating except between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. All heavy equipment will be limited to no earlier than 7:30 am for warm-up and may not commence operations before 8:00 am. 3. Construction and/or project management issues may arise or problems may occur during construction that could not have been reasonably anticipated at the time the permits are issued or that are not sufficiently addressed within the Applicant's Construction Management Plan. The Planning Director shall have the authority to amend the Construction Management Plan as reasonably necessary to resolve the issue or problem. 4. The proposed work is customarily reviewed by the Town Council during the Final PUD process and conditions are specified within the final ordinance. Staff may include the conditions of this ordinance, by reference, as part of the building permit issued such that violation of the terms and conditions of this ordinance shall also be enforceable pursuant to Chapter 18 of the Municipal Code. Additional conditions may also be included as necessary to ensure compliance with all other applicable provisions of the Municipal Code. Should disagreements occur or issues arise that cannot be resolved at the staff level, the Applicant may then appeal the matter to the Town Council for final resolution. Said appeal shall be submitted in writing to the Community Development Department within five (5) days of the planning or community development director's decision. 5. The building permit application shall include some form of specialty inspection and reporting mechanism which ensures necessary oversight during the course of construction. The final proposal shall specify: 1) the manner in which the inspections will be conducted; 2) who will be conducting the inspections; and 3) how the Applicant will submit reasonable and necessary reports as may be required during construction by the Town Building Official or Planning Director. The final necessary inspection and reporting procedures shall be established by the Town Building Official or Planning Director following review of the permit application and shall be a condition of the permit being issued.
