Garcia, Secretary/Records Clerk Madeleine Osberger, Bill Kane, David Belleck, Gert VanMoorsel, and other members of the public interested in today's Agenda items. LAND USE CODE DISCUSSION Manchester announced that according to Grassroots Television, an AT T fiber optics problem prevented the live taping of today's meeting, but will air tomorrow for the viewing public. Conrad explained the Unit Equivalency Charts on pages 6 and 7 and made references to the Aspenwood as an example for future buildout on the Buildout Analysis Chart, explaining that it will be helpful in the redevelopment process of Base Village. He recommended that the formula for maximum buildout on new development located on undeveloped land be simplified, that the adjustments to column "C" be brought to 10 percent, the Unit Equivalency Chart be applied to remaining units for parcels that are already developed and that staff simplify the language, which will hopefully provide what Council is trying to achieve. He further recommended that a Work Session be set to discuss specifics in defining a course of action to take to the Planning Commission. 01- 15- 01.tc, Page 2 Mercatoris requested the Town Attorney's presence at the next Work Session to provide legal counsel on Code revisions. FORWARD PLAN Suiter explained that today's presentation was an example of the process planned for a Village Leadership Forum (VLF) meeting scheduled for January 17, 2001. He further explained that the objective for this discussion is for Council to review the materials for the VLF process and provide staff direction. Purvis commented that 17 members of the community have expressed an interest and have agreed to take part in the meetings. He provided an outline of questions the group will attempt to answer. He stated that the group will establish the goal of a shared vision, develop a mission, reach an agreement on what must be accomplished, how to reach those accomplishments in order to be the leader in creating the excitement, challenge, learning reflection and togetherness for all as part of the Aspen /Snowmass Village experience. Bill Kane, of the Aspen Skiing Company (ASC), expressed that he felt encouraged by the invitation to participate and agreed that it is a meaningful project. Council stated their approval of the presentation and stated their appreciation, commending all participants involved. RESOLUTION NO. 06, SERIES OF 2001 SNOWMASS CLUB PUD, PHASE H DISCUSSION Wahlstrom explained revisions made to the Resolution as requested by Council at the January 8, 2001 Council Work Session. Council reviewed the draft Resolution and requested changes regarding the conditions under which the softball field would be conveyed to the town, community benefits, upgrades to the golf course and Brush Creek, and deed restriction of the Employee Housing. Wahlstrom explained that the Employee Housing construction was determined to be a mitigation requirement and language referring to the issue is included in the Resolution Conditions. In response to a inquiry made by Hatfield, an ASC representative explained that the applicant created a means to screen the Employee Housing building constructed during Phase I, by planting 30- percent more trees than the original plan required. Council discussed completion dates for the Clubhouse and residential units and requested necessary changes to the Resolution. Mayor Manchester stated that more extensive information would be provided by the applicant during Preliminary Review of this application. The Work Ses adjourn at p.m. Submitted by: Donna J.
