PUBLIC COMMENT - This section is set aside for the Town Council to LISTEN to comments by the public regarding items that do not otherwise appear on this agenda. Generally, the Town Council will not discuss the issue and will not take an official action under this section of the agenda. (Five Minute Time Limit) 5. CONSENT AGENDA - These are items where all conditions or requirements have been agreed to or met prior to the time they come before the Council for final action. A Single Public Hearing will be opened for all items on the Consent Agenda. These items will be approved by a single motion of the Council. The Mayor will ask if there is anyone present who has objection to such procedure as to certain items. Members of the Council may also ask that an item be removed from the consent section and fully discussed. All items not removed from the 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 1 of 286 consent section will then be approved.

PUBLIC HEARINGS - QUASI-JUDICIAL HEARINGS - Public Hearings are the formal opportunity for the Town Council to LISTEN to the public regarding the issue at hand. For land use hearings the Council is required to act in a quasi-judicial capacity. When acting as a quasi-judicial body, the Council is acting in much the same capacity as a judge would act in a court of law. Under these circumstances, the judicial or quasi-judicial must limit its consideration to matters which are placed into evidence and are part of the public record. The Council must base their decision on the law and the evidence presented at the hearing. 7. POLICY/LEGISLATIVE PUBLIC HEARINGS 7.A.

ADJOURNMENT 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 3 of 286 Town of Snowmass Village Agenda Item Summary DATE OF MEETING: June 3, 2019 AGENDA ITEM: Presentation of the 2019 EAB Environmental Leadership Award PRESENTED BY: Andrew Wickes, Chair, Environmental Advisory Board Travis Elliott, Assistant to the Town Manager Environmental Advisory Board BACKGROUND: The Environmental Advisory Board (EAB) will attend the Town Council meeting to present their 2019 Environmental Leadership Award to Holy Cross Energy. Representatives from Holy Cross will also be present to receive the award on behalf of the organization. The Environmental Leadership Award was created in 2012 as a way to spotlight community best practices in environmental sustainability. The award is intended to not only recognize local leaders for their efforts but spotlight their actions so they can be replicated by other individuals and businesses in Snowmass Village. Holy Cross Energy was chosen among several nominees to be the sole recipient of the 2019 award for their trailblazing efforts to increase their portfolio of renewable energy. Their past efforts have already resulted in a significant reduction of the community’s carbon emissions, and the Board would like to recognize their leadership. Complete Nomination Description: The Town of Snowmass Village Environmental Advisory Board has nominated Holy Cross Energy to be the recipient of the 2019 Environmental Leadership Award, which honors individuals and organizations who have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to sustainability. Last year, the electric utility provider announced an ambitious target for carbon reduction, which will accelerate Snowmass Village’s transition to a low-carbon 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 4 of 286 future. The “seventy70thirty” goal commits Holy Cross Energy to increase renewable electricity to 70% (from 39% currently) and reduce greenhouse gas emissions 70% as soon as 2030. All this, while continuing to maintain reliable and affordable electric service to the Snowmass Village community. The utility has been dedicated partner in addressing our most pressing environmental challenges. This year, the Town signed a deal with Holy Cross Energy to get town facilities powered by fully renewable electricity, and the Town is working with the utility to install six renewable energy systems on town facilities. Together, Holy Cross Energy and Snowmass Village are making meaningful progress towards a more stable climate and thriving community. Please help us thank Holy Cross Energy for being a leader in environmental sustainability and applaud them as the recipient of the 2019 Environmental Leadership Award. Nominations for the 2020 award will accepted beginning in November, 2019. The nomination form and additional details about the selection criteria, background, and past recipients can be found online at www.tosv.com. FINANCIAL IMPACT: NA APPLICABILITY TO COUNCIL GOALS & OBJECTIVES: This directly relates to the Town’s Resiliency and Sustainability Goals that the EAB strives to meet.

No action required STAFF RECOMMENDATION: NA ATTACHMENTS: 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 5 of 286 Town of Snowmass Village Agenda Item Summary DATE OF MEETING: June 3, 2019 AGENDA ITEM: Update on Activities, Progress and Plans for the Collective Building PRESENTED BY: Clint Kinney, Town Manager Andy Gunion, East West Partners Charlie Singer, East West Partners BACKGROUND: In April 2019, East West Partners entered into a lease with the Town to operate the Collective Building. The lease is attached. Essentially the lease calls for East West to design and construct the tenant finishes in the Town-owned building and then operate the facility once construction is complete. East West is responsible for majority of the tenant build out costs, but the Town did commit to contribute $440,000 toward the overall tenant improvements. In addition, the Town agreed to contribute $350,000 toward the build out of the space allocated to Snowmass Discovery. Snowmass Discovery is still working through and evaluating its design and fundraising efforts. As such, the basement has been designed in such a manner as to preserve the ability for the Discovery Center to be (eventually) constructed while still effectively utilizing the space in the meantime. To date, the Town has projected and earmarked the (lease-required) $350,000 as follows: General basement design (electrical, HVAC, etc.) $ 35,000 Snowmass Discovery Exhibit Design (50% has been spent on the initial design phase) $ 30,000 Basic tenant improvements in basement necessary for Snowmass Discovery and/or game room. $175,000 TOTAL $240,000 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 6 of 286 With these design numbers approximately $110,000 will be available for future development of Snowmass Discovery. FINANCIAL IMPACT: The Town’s contribution to this project are called out in the lease agreement and are allocated in the 2019 budget. The source of these funds is the cash contribution from the developer required at the time of the Base Village PUD approval. APPLICABILITY TO COUNCIL GOALS & OBJECTIVES: This project is designed to help achieve several Town Council goals including improved community engagement and community building. COUNCIL OPTIONS: No formal action is required at this time. STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This is only an update. No action is necessary.

New Mill Levy 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 88 of 286 Town of Snowmass Village Agenda Item Summary Date of Meeting: June 3, 2019 Agenda Item: Ordinance 9, Series 2019, An Amendment to the Land Use and Development Code related to Flood Prevention and associated FIRM Maps Presented By: Julie Ann Woods, FAICP/MLA, Community Development Director Background: The Town currently has floodplain and wetland regulations under Section 16A-4-40. These regulations restrict development within the 100-year floodplain. Property owners whose land is within the 100-year floodplain are eligible to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), provided the local jurisdiction incorporates the minimum NFIP standards and requirements. These standards are intended to prevent loss of life and property, as well as economic and social hardships that result from flooding. In return for the local adoption and enforcement of floodplain management regulations, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) provides the availability of flood insurance coverage within the community. Staff estimates that approximately a dozen buildings, mostly townhomes (some in Tamarack, some in Country Club Townhomes), are partially located within the Zone A Floodplain. FEMA has worked with the states to adopt minimum standards for consistency throughout the State. The State-adopted standards are more lenient than the Town’s requirements and are intended to provide continuity of regulations as floodplains and wetlands often cross jurisdictional lines. Though many of the standards may not apply in Snowmass Village (e.g. standards for locating mobile home parks within the floodplain), nonetheless, the State requires adoption of these regulations no later than August 15, 2019 in order to stay within the National Floodplain Insurance Program. These new standards are proposed to be incorporated into Section 16A-4-40 as a new subsection (f) (see attached Exhibit A Ordinance No. 9, Series 2019 with the added language). The language specifically states that the additional regulations are subordinate to the Town’s existing, more stringent regulations, which remain in place. On May 15, 2019, the Planning Commission reviewed the proposed text amendment and unanimously approved Resolution No. 3, attached as Exhibit B. 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 89 of 286 Review Standards: Section 16A-5-120 Amendments to text of Development Code, subsection ( e ) sets forth the following review criteria in considering a text amendment: (1) Consistent with purposes. The proposed amendment shall be consistent with the purposes of this Development Code. The proposed amendment is consistent with the purposes of the Development Code. Generally, the purposes of the Development Code are to: 1) Establish an efficient development review process; 2) Provide for participation; 3) Protect quality of life; 4) Provide for orderly development of Town; and 5) Implement the Comprehensive Plan. (2) Not conflict with other provisions. The proposed amendment shall not conflict with any other applicable provisions of this Development Code. The proposed amendment does not conflict with any other applicable provisions of the Development Code, since the proposed regulations are considered subordinate to the Town’s more restrictive floodplain and wetland regulations. (3) Consistent with Comprehensive Plan. The proposed amendment shall be consistent with the Town of Snowmass Village Comprehensive Plan. Comprehensive Plan Policy A.1. Promote the Town Resiliency & Sustainability Plan, includes policies related to Watershed Water Quality, including “Minimize negative impacts to watershed quality” and “Improve water quality in Brush Creek to eliminate its Roaring Fork Conservancy designation as an ‘impacted’ waterway.” (4) Public health, safety and welfare. The proposed amendment shall preserve the public health, safety, general welfare and environment and contribute to the orderly development of the Town. The proposed amendment preserves the public health, safety, general welfare and environment and contributes to the orderly development of the Town by reducing impediments within the floodplain as nature takes its course. The amendment also allows those property owners whose land is located within the floodplain to maintain or obtain Federal Flood Insurance for their property. Staff Recommendation: Staff recommends that the Town Council approve draft Ordinance No. 9, Series 2019, adopting the new floodplain standards as an amendment to the text of the Land Use and Development Code (LUDC) along with applicable Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM Maps), on first reading and set the second reading and public hearing for June 17, 2019.

The proposed amendment is consistent with the purposes of 35 the Development Code. 36 37 (2) Not conflict with other provisions. The proposed amendment does not conflict with any 38 other applicable provisions of the Development Code, since the proposed regulations are 39 considered subordinate to the Town’s more restrictive floodplain and wetland regulations. 40 41 (3) Consistent with Comprehensive Plan. The proposed amendment is consistent with the 42 Town of Snowmass Village Comprehensive Plan. Policy A.1. Promote the Town Resiliency & 43 Sustainability Plan includes policies related to Watershed Water Quality, including “Minimize 44 negative impacts to watershed quality” and “Improve water quality in Brush Creek to 45 eliminate its Roaring Fork Conservancy designation as an ‘impacted’ waterway.” 46 47 (4) Public health, safety and welfare. The proposed amendment preserves the public health, 48 safety, general welfare and environment and contributes to the orderly development of the 49 Town by reducing impediments within the floodplain as nature takes its course. 50 51 Section Two: Action. 52 The Town Council hereby approves a text amendment to Section 16A-4-40 by adding subsection 53 (f), such that this section of the code reads as follows: 54 • Sec 16A-4-40. - Floodplain and wetland areas. 55 (a) 56 General Standard. No development shall be allowed that would adversely affect the quantity, 57 quality or accessibility of the water resources of the Town or region, or which would occur at 58 the expense of established water-dependent agricultural activities, or which would result in 59 increased salinization of water courses, loss of minimum stream flows, diminishment of 60 wildlife habitat, or major expenditures to reacquire or redistribute major water resources. 61 Development shall not be allowed to pollute or interfere with the natural changes of the 62 river, stream or other tributary, including erosion and/or sedimentation during construction. 63 Increased on-site drainage shall be accommodated within the parcel to prevent entry into the 64 river or onto its banks. Pools or hot tubs cannot be drained outside the designated building 65 envelope. 66 (b) 67 Floodplains. Floodplains are an extension of the stream channel cross-sections required to 68 accommodate increased stream flow during flood periods. Their obstruction or alteration will 69 alter stream behavior, leading to siltation, stream bank erosion and aggravated flood 70 conditions. All development proposed in an application for PUD, subdivision or special review 71 shall be located outside of the limits of the one-hundred-year floodplain, as depicted on the 72 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 93 of 286 most recent edition of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Flood Insurance 73 Rates Maps for areas within the Town. An applicant for a subdivision, PUD or special review 74 proposed in an area where there are no detailed flood elevations depicted on the FEMA maps 75 shall be required to submit a study that identifies the limits of the one-hundred-year 76 floodplain on the property and to locate all proposed development outside of the limits of 77 that area. A professional engineer licensed in the State shall prepare the study. 78 (c) 79 Wetlands. Areas that are considered to be jurisdictional wetlands, as defined by the United 80 States Army Corps of Engineers, are prohibited from development unless appropriate 81 mitigation is approved by the Corps of Engineers, by appropriate permit, or authorization 82 under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, and by the Town Council. This prohibition shall not 83 apply to the development of a lot subdivided prior to the effective date of this Development 84 Code (September 2, 1998). However, development of such lots shall comply with any 85 wetlands protection and mitigation requirements that may have been applied to the property 86 during the approval of the PUD or subdivision in which it is located. 87 (d) 88 Land Under Water. Whenever there is proposed for development a tract of land partially 89 under water at any time during the year, there shall be excluded from development those 90 areas of the tract that are under water, up to the mean high water mark, except where such a 91 requirement would prevent construction of even one (1) single-family residence within the 92 property. 93 (e) 94 Guarantee. A guarantee must provide in the event a watercourse or riparian area is altered or 95 relocated, that applies to the developer and his or her heirs, successors and assigns that 96 ensures that the flood-carrying capacity and riparian habitat on the parcel is not diminished 97 and that no situation is created which causes additional erosion of streambanks into the 98 watercourse. 99 [New Language is below] 100 101 (f) Additional Requirements. In addition to the regulations set forth above, and in order to 102 maintain eligibility in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the Town hereby 103 incorporates the following subordinate regulations related to development and the prevention 104 of flooding. 105 106 ARTICLE I - TITLE AND PURPOSE 107 108 109 110 SECTION A. STATUTORY AUTHORIZATION 111 112 The Legislature of the State of Colorado has, in Title 29, Article 20 of the Colorado Revised 113 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 94 of 286 Statutes, delegated the responsibility of local governmental units to adopt regulations 114 designed to minimize flood losses. Therefore, the Town Council of Snowmass Village, Colorado, 115 does hereby adopt the following floodplain management regulations: 116 117 SECTION B. FINDINGS OF FACT 118 119 (1) The flood hazard areas of Snowmass Village are subject to periodic inundation, which can 120 result in loss of life and property, health and safety hazards, disruption of commerce and 121 governmental services, and extraordinary public expenditures for flood protection and relief, 122 all of which adversely affect the health, safety and general welfare of the public. 123 124 (2) These flood losses are created by the cumulative effect of obstructions in floodplains which 125 cause an increase in flood heights and velocities, and by the occupancy of flood hazard areas by 126 uses vulnerable to floods and hazardous to other lands because they are inadequately elevated, 127 floodproofed or otherwise protected from flood damage. 128 129 SECTION C. STATEMENT OF PURPOSE 130 131 It is the purpose of this ordinance to promote public health, safety and general welfare and 132 to minimize public and private losses due to flood conditions in specific areas by provisions 133 designed to: 134 135 1. Protect human life and health; 136 137 2. Minimize expenditure of public money for costly flood control projects; 138 139 3. Minimize the need for rescue and relief efforts associated with flooding and 140 generally undertaken at the expense of the general public; 141 142 4. Minimize prolonged business interruptions; 143 144 5. Minimize damage to critical facilities, infrastructure and other public facilities such as water, 145 sewer and gas mains; electric and communications stations; and streets and bridges located in 146 floodplains; 147 148 6. Help maintain a stable tax base by providing for the sound use and development of 149 flood- prone areas in such a manner as to minimize future flood blight areas; and 150 151 7. Insure that potential buyers are notified that property is located in a flood hazard area. 152 153 SECTION D. METHODS OF REDUCING FLOOD LOSSES 154 155 In order to accomplish its purposes, this ordinance uses the following methods: 156 157 1. Restrict or prohibit uses that are dangerous to health, safety or property in times of 158 flood, or cause excessive increases in flood heights or velocities; 159 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 95 of 286 160 2. Require that uses vulnerable to floods, including facilities which serve such uses, 161 be protected against flood damage at the time of initial construction; 162 163 3. Control the alteration of natural floodplains, stream channels, and natural protective 164 barriers, which are involved in the accommodation of flood waters; 165 166 4. Control filling, grading, dredging and other development which may increase flood damage; 167 168 5. Prevent or regulate the construction of flood barriers which will unnaturally divert 169 flood waters or which may increase flood hazards to other lands. 170 171 ARTICLE II - DEFINITIONS 172 173 Unless specifically defined below, words or phrases used in this ordinance shall be 174 interpreted to give them the meaning they have in common usage and to give this 175 ordinance its most reasonable application. 176 177 100-YEAR FLOOD - A flood having a recurrence interval that has a one-percent chance of 178 being equaled or exceeded during any given year (1-percent-annual-chance flood). The 179 terms "one- 180 hundred-year flood" and "one percent chance flood" are synonymous with the term "100-year 181 flood." The term does not imply that the flood will necessarily happen once every one hundred 182 years. 183 184 185 100-YEAR FLOODPLAIN - The area of land susceptible to being inundated as a result of 186 the occurrence of a one-hundred-year flood. 187 188 189 500-YEAR FLOOD - A flood having a recurrence interval that has a 0.2-percent chance of 190 being equaled or exceeded during any given year (0.2-percent-chance-annual-flood).

Review permits for proposed development to assure that all necessary permits have 631 been obtained from those Federal, State or local governmental agencies (including 632 Section 404 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972, 33 633 U.S.C. 1334) from which prior approval is required. 634 635 5. Inspect all development at appropriate times during the period of construction to 636 ensure compliance with all provisions of this ordinance, including proper elevation of 637 the structure. 638 639 6. Where interpretation is needed as to the exact location of the boundaries of the 640 Special Flood Hazard Area (for example, where there appears to be a conflict between 641 a mapped boundary and actual field conditions) the Floodplain Administrator shall 642 make the necessary interpretation. 643 644 7. When Base Flood Elevation data has not been provided in accordance with Article 3, 645 Section B, the Floodplain Administrator shall obtain, review and reasonably utilize any 646 Base Flood Elevation data and Floodway data available from a Federal, State, or other 647 source, in order to administer the provisions of Article 5. 648 649 8. For waterways with Base Flood Elevations for which a regulatory Floodway has not 650 been designated, no new construction, substantial improvements, or other 651 development (including fill) shall be permitted within Zones A1-30 and AE on the 652 community's FIRM, unless it is demonstrated that the cumulative effect of the 653 proposed development, when combined with all other existing and anticipated 654 development, will not increase the water surface elevation of the base flood more 655 than one-half foot at any point within the community. 656 657 9. Under the provisions of 44 CFR Chapter 1, Section 65.12, of the National Flood 658 Insurance Program regulations, a community may approve certain development in 659 Zones A1-30, AE, AH, on the community's FIRM which increases the water surface 660 elevation of the base flood by more than one-half foot, provided that the community 661 first applies for a conditional FIRM revision through FEMA (Conditional Letter of Map 662 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 106 of 286 Revision), fulfills the requirements for such revisions as established under the 663 provisions of Section 65.12 and receives FEMA approval. 664 665 10. Notify, in riverine situations, adjacent communities and the State Coordinating 666 Agency, which is the Colorado Water Conservation Board, prior to any alteration or 667 relocation of a watercourse, and submit evidence of such notification to FEMA. 668 669 11. Ensure that the flood carrying capacity within the altered or relocated 670 portion of any watercourse is maintained. 671 672 SECTION C. PERMIT PROCEDURES 673 674 Application for a Floodplain Development Permit shall be presented to the Floodplain 675 Administrator on forms furnished by him/her and may include, but not be limited to, plans in 676 duplicate drawn to scale showing the location, dimensions, and elevation of proposed 677 landscape alterations, existing and proposed structures, including the placement of 678 manufactured homes, and the location of the foregoing in relation to Special Flood Hazard 679 Area. Additionally, the following information is required: 680 681 1. Elevation (in relation to mean sea level), of the lowest floor (including basement) of 682 all new and substantially improved structures; 683 684 2. Elevation in relation to mean sea level to which any nonresidential structure 685 shall be floodproofed; 686 687 3. A certificate from a registered Colorado Professional Engineer or architect that 688 the nonresidential floodproofed structure shall meet the floodproofing criteria 689 of Article 5, Section B(2); 690 691 4. Description of the extent to which any watercourse or natural drainage will be 692 altered or relocated as a result of proposed development. 693 5. Maintain a record of all such information in accordance with Article 4, Section B. 694 Approval or denial of a Floodplain Development Permit by the Floodplain Administrator 695 shall be based on all of the provisions of this ordinance and the following relevant factors: 696 697 1. The danger to life and property due to flooding or erosion damage; 698 699 2. The susceptibility of the proposed facility and its contents to flood damage and the 700 effect of such damage on the individual owner; 701 702 3. The danger that materials may be swept onto other lands to the injury of others; 703 704 4. The compatibility of the proposed use with existing and anticipated development; 705 706 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 107 of 286 5. The safety of access to the property in times of flood for ordinary and emergency 707 vehicles; 708 709 6.

The expected heights, velocity, duration, rate of rise and sediment transport of 714 the flood waters and the effects of wave action, if applicable, expected at the 715 site; 716 717 8. The necessity to the facility of a waterfront location, where applicable; 718 719 9. The availability of alternative locations, not subject to flooding or erosion damage, 720 for the proposed use; 721 722 10. The relationship of the proposed use to the comprehensive plan for that area. 723 724 SECTION D. VARIANCE PROCEDURES 725 726 1. The Appeal Board or Planning Commission, as established by the Community, 727 shall hear and render judgment on requests for variances from the requirements 728 of this ordinance. 729 730 2. The Appeal Board or Planning Commission, shall hear and render judgment on an 731 appeal only when it is alleged there is an error in any requirement, decision, or 732 determination made by the Floodplain Administrator in the enforcement or 733 administration of this ordinance. 734 735 3. Any person or persons aggrieved by the decision of the Appeal Board may 736 appeal such decision in the courts of competent jurisdiction. 737 738 4. The Floodplain Administrator shall maintain a record of all actions involving an 739 appeal and shall report variances to the Federal Emergency Management Agency 740 upon request. 741 742 5. Variances may be issued for the reconstruction, rehabilitation or restoration of 743 structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places or the State Inventory 744 of Historic Places, without regard to the procedures set forth in the remainder of 745 this ordinance. 746 747 6. Variances may be issued for new construction and substantial improvements to be 748 erected on a lot of one-half acre or less in size contiguous to and surrounded by lots 749 with existing structures constructed below the base flood level, providing the relevant 750 factors in Section C of this Article have been fully considered. As the lot size increases 751 beyond the one-half acre, the technical justification required for issuing the variance 752 increases. 753 754 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 108 of 286 7. Upon consideration of the factors noted above and the intent of this ordinance, 755 the Appeal Board or Planning Commission, may attach such conditions to the 756 granting of variances as it deems necessary to further the purpose and objectives 757 of this ordinance as stated in Article 1, Section C. 758 8. Variances shall not be issued within any designated floodway if any increase in flood 759 levels during the base flood discharge would result. 760 761 9. Variances may be issued for the repair or rehabilitation of historic structures upon 762 a determination that the proposed repair or rehabilitation will not preclude the 763 structure's continued designation as a historic structure and the variance is the 764 minimum necessary to preserve the historic character and design of the structure. 765 766 10. Prerequisites for granting variances: 767 768 a. Variances shall only be issued upon a determination that the variance is the 769 minimum necessary, considering the flood hazard, to afford relief. 770 771 b. Variances shall only be issued upon: 772 773 i. Showing a good and sufficient cause; 774 775 ii. A determination that failure to grant the variance would 776 result in exceptional hardship to the applicant, and 777 778 iii. A determination that the granting of a variance will not result in 779 increased flood heights, additional threats to public safety, 780 extraordinary public expense, create nuisances, cause fraud on or 781 victimization of the public, 782 or conflict with existing local laws or ordinances. 783 784 c. Any applicant to whom a variance is granted shall be given written notice that 785 the structure will be permitted to be built with the lowest floor elevation 786 below the Base Flood Elevation, and that the cost of flood insurance will be 787 commensurate with the increased risk resulting from the reduced lowest 788 floor elevation. 789 790 11. Variances may be issued by a community for new construction and substantial 791 improvements and for other development necessary for the conduct of a Functionally 792 Dependent Use provided that: 793 794 a. The criteria outlined in Article 4, Section D (1)-(9) are met, and 795 796 b. The structure or other development is protected by methods that 797 minimize flood damages during the base flood and create no additional 798 threats to public safety. 799 800 SECTION E. PENALITIES FOR NONCOMPLIANCE 801 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 109 of 286 802 No structure or land shall hereafter be constructed, located, extended, converted, or altered 803 without full compliance with the terms of this ordinance and other applicable regulations. 804 Violation of the provisions of this ordinance by failure to comply with any of its requirements 805 (including violations of conditions and safeguards established in connection with conditions) 806 shall constitute a misdemeanor. Any person who violates this ordinance or fails to comply 807 with any of its requirements shall upon conviction thereof be fined or imprisoned as provided 808 by the laws of Snowmass Village. Nothing herein contained shall prevent the Town of 809 Snowmass Village from taking such other lawful action as is necessary to prevent or remedy 810 any violation. 811 812 ARTICLE V - PROVISIONS FOR FLOOD HAZARD REDUCTION 813 814 SECTION A. GENERAL STANDARDS 815 816 In all Special Flood Hazard Areas the following provisions are required for all new 817 construction and substantial improvements: 818 819 1. All new construction or substantial improvements shall be designed (or modified) 820 and adequately anchored to prevent flotation, collapse or lateral movement of 821 the structure resulting from hydrodynamic and hydrostatic loads, including the 822 effects of buoyancy; 823 824 2. All new construction or substantial improvements shall be constructed by 825 methods and practices that minimize flood damage; 826 827 3.

SPECIFIC STANDARDS 854 855 In all Special Flood Hazard Areas where base flood elevation data has been provided as set 856 forth in (i) Article 3, Section B, (ii) Article 4, Section B(7), or (iii) Article 5, Section G, the 857 following provisions are required: 858 859 1. RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION 860 861 New construction and Substantial Improvement of any residential structure shall 862 have the lowest floor (including basement), electrical, heating, ventilation, plumbing, 863 and air conditioning equipment and other service facilities (including ductwork), 864 elevated to one foot above the base flood elevation. Upon completion of the 865 structure, the elevation of the lowest floor, including basement, shall be certified by 866 a registered Colorado Professional Engineer, architect, or land surveyor. Such 867 certification shall be submitted to the Floodplain Administrator. 868 869 2. NONRESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION 870 871 With the exception of Critical Facilities, outlined in Article 5, Section H, new 872 construction and Substantial Improvements of any commercial, industrial, or other 873 nonresidential structure shall either have the lowest floor (including basement), 874 electrical, heating, ventilation, plumbing, and air conditioning equipment and other 875 service facilities (including ductwork), elevated to one foot above the base flood 876 elevation or, together with attendant utility and sanitary facilities, be designed so that 877 at one foot above the base flood elevation the structure is watertight with walls 878 substantially impermeable to the passage of water and with structural components 879 having the capability of resisting hydrostatic and hydrodynamic loads and effects of 880 buoyancy. 881 882 A registered Colorado Professional Engineer or architect shall develop and/or review 883 structural design, specifications, and plans for the construction, and shall certify that 884 the design and methods of construction are in accordance with accepted standards 885 of practice as outlined in this subsection. Such certification shall be maintained by 886 the Floodplain Administrator, as proposed in Article 4, Section C. 887 888 3. ENCLOSURES 889 890 New construction and substantial improvements, with fully enclosed areas below the 891 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 111 of 286 lowest floor that are usable solely for parking of vehicles, building access, or storage in 892 an area other than a basement and which are subject to flooding shall be designed to 893 automatically equalize hydrostatic flood forces on exterior walls by allowing for the 894 entry and exit of floodwaters. 895 896 Designs for meeting this requirement must either be certified by a registered Colorado 897 Professional Engineer or architect or meet or exceed the following minimum criteria: 898 899 a. A minimum of two openings having a total net area of not less than one 900 square inch for every square foot of enclosed area subject to flooding shall 901 be provided. 902 b. The bottom of all openings shall be no higher than one foot above 903 grade. 904 c. Openings may be equipped with screens, louvers, valves, or other 905 coverings or devices provided that they permit the automatic entry and 906 exit of floodwaters. 907 908 4. MANUFACTURED HOMES 909 910 All manufactured homes that are placed or substantially improved within Zones A1-911 30, AH, and AE on the community's FIRM on sites (i) outside of a manufactured 912 home park or subdivision, (ii) in a new manufactured home park or subdivision, (iii) 913 in an expansion to an existing manufactured home park or subdivision, or (iv) in an 914 existing manufactured home park or subdivision on which manufactured home has 915 incurred "substantial damage" as a result of a flood, be elevated on a permanent 916 foundation such that the lowest floor of the manufactured home, electrical, 917 heating, ventilation, plumbing, and air conditioning equipment and other service 918 facilities (including ductwork), are elevated to one foot above the base flood 919 elevation and be securely anchored to an adequately anchored foundation system 920 to resist flotation, collapse, and lateral movement. 921 922 All manufactured homes placed or substantially improved on sites in an existing 923 manufactured home park or subdivision within Zones A1-30, AH and AE on the 924 community's FIRM that are not subject to the provisions of the above paragraph, shall 925 be elevated so that either: 926 927 a. The lowest floor of the manufactured home, electrical, heating, ventilation, 928 plumbing, and air conditioning equipment and other service facilities (including 929 ductwork), are one foot above the base flood elevation, or 930 931 b. The manufactured home chassis is supported by reinforced piers or other 932 foundation elements of at least equivalent strength that are no less than 36 933 inches in height above grade and be securely anchored to an adequately 934 anchored foundation system to resist flotation, collapse, and lateral 935 movement. 936 937 5. RECREATIONAL VEHICLES 938 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 112 of 286 939 All recreational vehicles placed on sites within Zones A1-30, AH, and AE on 940 the community's FIRM either: 941 942 a. Be on the site for fewer than 180 consecutive 943 days, 944 b. Be fully licensed and ready for highway use, 945 or 946 c. Meet the permit requirements of Article 4, Section C, and the elevation and 947 anchoring requirements for "manufactured homes" in paragraph (4) of this 948 section. 949 950 A recreational vehicle is ready for highway use if it is on its wheels or jacking 951 system, is attached to the site only by quick disconnect type utilities and security 952 devices, and has no permanently attached additions. 953 954 955 SECTION C. STANDARDS FOR AREAS OF SHALLOW FLOODING (AO/AH ZONES) 956 957 Located within the Special Flood Hazard Area established in Article 3, Section B, are areas 958 designated as shallow flooding. These areas have special flood hazards associated with base 959 flood depths of 1 to 3 feet where a clearly defined channel does not exist and where the 960 path of flooding is unpredictable and where velocity flow may be evident. Such flooding is 961 characterized by ponding or sheet flow; therefore, the following provisions apply: 962 1. RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION 963 964 All new construction and Substantial Improvements of residential structures must 965 have the lowest floor (including basement), electrical, heating, ventilation, plumbing, 966 and air conditioning equipment and other service facilities (including ductwork), 967 elevated above the highest adjacent grade at least one foot above the depth number 968 specified in feet on the community's FIRM (at least three feet if no depth number is 969 specified). Upon completion of the structure, the elevation of the lowest floor, 970 including basement, shall be certified by a registered Colorado Professional Engineer, 971 architect, or land surveyor. Such certification shall be submitted to the Floodplain 972 Administrator. 973 974 2. NONRESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION 975 976 With the exception of Critical Facilities, outlined in Article 5, Section H, all new 977 construction and Substantial Improvements of non-residential structures, must have 978 the lowest floor (including basement), electrical, heating, ventilation, plumbing, and 979 air conditioning equipment and other service facilities (including ductwork), elevated 980 above the highest adjacent grade at least one foot above the depth number specified 981 in feet on the community's FIRM (at least three feet if no depth number is specified), 982 or together with attendant utility and sanitary facilities, be designed so that the 983 structure is watertight to at least one foot above the base flood level with walls 984 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 113 of 286 substantially impermeable to the passage of water and with structural components 985 having the capability of resisting hydrostatic and hydrodynamic loads of effects of 986 buoyancy. A registered Colorado Professional Engineer or architect shall submit a 987 certification to the Floodplain Administrator that the standards of this Section, as 988 proposed in Article 4, Section C, are satisfied. 989 990 Within Zones AH or AO, adequate drainage paths around structures on slopes are 991 required to guide flood waters around and away from proposed structures. 992 993 SECTION D. FLOODWAYS 994 995 Floodways are administrative limits and tools used to regulate existing and future floodplain 996 development. The State of Colorado has adopted Floodway standards that are more stringent 997 than the FEMA minimum standard (see definition of Floodway in Article 2). Located within 998 Special Flood Hazard Area established in Article 3, Section B, are areas designated as 999 Floodways. Since the Floodway is an extremely hazardous area due to the velocity of 1000 floodwaters which carry debris, potential projectiles and erosion potential, the following 1001 provisions shall apply: 1002 1003 1. Encroachments are prohibited, including fill, new construction, substantial 1004 improvements and other development within the adopted regulatory Floodway unless 1005 it has been demonstrated through hydrologic and hydraulic analyses performed by a 1006 licensed Colorado Professional Engineer and in accordance with standard engineering 1007 practice that the proposed encroachment would not result in any increase (requires a 1008 No-Rise Certification) in flood levels within the community during the occurrence of 1009 the base flood discharge. 1010 1011 2. If Article 5, Section D (1) above is satisfied, all new construction and substantial 1012 improvements shall comply with all applicable flood hazard reduction provisions of 1013 Article 5. 1014 3. Under the provisions of 44 CFR Chapter 1, Section 65.12, of the National Flood 1015 Insurance Regulations, a community may permit encroachments within the adopted 1016 regulatory floodway that would result in an increase in Base Flood Elevations, 1017 provided that the community first applies for a CLOMR and floodway revision 1018 through FEMA. 1019 1020 SECTION E. ALTERATION OF A WATERCOURSE 1021 1022 For all proposed developments that alter a watercourse within a Special Flood Hazard 1023 Area, the following standards apply: 1024 1025 1. Channelization and flow diversion projects shall appropriately consider issues of 1026 sediment transport, erosion, deposition, and channel migration and properly 1027 mitigate potential problems through the project as well as upstream and 1028 downstream of any improvement activity. A detailed analysis of sediment 1029 transport and overall channel stability should be considered, when appropriate, to 1030 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 114 of 286 assist in determining the most appropriate design. 1031 2. Channelization and flow diversion projects shall evaluate the residual 100-year 1032 floodplain. 1033 3. Any channelization or other stream alteration activity proposed by a project 1034 proponent must be evaluated for its impact on the regulatory floodplain and be in 1035 compliance with all applicable Federal, State and local floodplain rules, regulations 1036 and ordinances. 1037 4. Any stream alteration activity shall be designed and sealed by a registered Colorado 1038 Professional Engineer or Certified Professional Hydrologist. 1039 5. All activities within the regulatory floodplain shall meet all applicable Federal, State and 1040 Snowmass Village floodplain requirements and regulations. 1041 6. Within the Regulatory Floodway, stream alteration activities shall not be 1042 constructed unless the project proponent demonstrates through a Floodway 1043 analysis and report, sealed by a registered Colorado Professional Engineer, that 1044 there is not more than a 0.00-foot rise in the proposed conditions compared to 1045 existing conditions Floodway resulting from the project, otherwise known as a No-1046 Rise Certification, unless the community first applies for a CLOMR and Floodway 1047 revision in accordance with Section D of this Article. 1048 7. Maintenance shall be required for any altered or relocated portions of 1049 watercourses so that the flood-carrying capacity is not diminished. 1050 1051 SECTION F. PROPERTIES REMOVED FROM THE FLOODPLAIN BY FILL 1052 1053 A Floodplain Development Permit shall not be issued for the construction of a new structure 1054 or addition to an existing structure on a property removed from the floodplain by the 1055 issuance of a FEMA Letter of Map Revision Based on Fill (LOMR-F), unless such new structure 1056 or addition complies with the following: 1057 1058 1. RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION 1059 1060 The lowest floor (including basement), electrical, heating, ventilation, plumbing, and 1061 air conditioning equipment and other service facilities (including ductwork), must be 1062 elevated to one foot above the Base Flood Elevation that existed prior to the 1063 placement of fill. 1064 1065 2. NONRESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION 1066 1067 The lowest floor (including basement), electrical, heating, ventilation, plumbing, and 1068 air conditioning equipment and other service facilities (including ductwork), must be 1069 elevated to one foot above the Base Flood Elevation that existed prior to the 1070 placement of fill, or together with attendant utility and sanitary facilities be designed 1071 so that the structure or addition is watertight to at least one foot above the base 1072 flood level that existed prior to the placement of fill with walls substantially 1073 impermeable to the passage of water and with structural components having the 1074 capability of resisting hydrostatic and hydrodynamic loads of effects of buoyancy. 1075 1076 SECTION G. STANDARDS FOR SUBDIVISION PROPOSALS 1077 1078 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 115 of 286 1. All subdivision proposals including the placement of manufactured home parks and 1079 subdivisions shall be reasonably safe from flooding. If a subdivision or other 1080 development proposal is in a flood-prone area, the proposal shall minimize flood 1081 damage. 1082 1083 2. All proposals for the development of subdivisions including the placement of 1084 manufactured home parks and subdivisions shall meet Floodplain Development 1085 Permit requirements of Article 3, Section C; Article 4, Section C; and the provisions 1086 of Article 5 of this ordinance. 1087 1088 3. Base Flood Elevation data shall be generated for subdivision proposals and other 1089 proposed development including the placement of manufactured home parks and 1090 subdivisions which is greater than 50 lots or 5 acres, whichever is lesser, if not 1091 otherwise provided pursuant to Article 3, Section B or Article 4, Section B of this 1092 ordinance. 1093 1094 4. All subdivision proposals including the placement of manufactured home parks 1095 and subdivisions shall have adequate drainage provided to reduce exposure to 1096 flood hazards. 1097 1098 5. All subdivision proposals including the placement of manufactured home parks and 1099 subdivisions shall have public utilities and facilities such as sewer, gas, electrical and 1100 water systems located and constructed to minimize or eliminate flood damage. 1101 1102 SECTION H. STANDARDS FOR CRITICAL FACILITIES 1103 1104 A Critical Facility is a structure or related infrastructure, but not the land on which it is 1105 situated, as specified in Rule 6 of the Rules and Regulations for Regulatory Floodplains in 1106 Colorado, that if flooded may result in significant hazards to public health and safety or 1107 interrupt essential services and operations for the community at any time before, during 1108 and after a flood. 1109 1110 1. CLASSIFICATION OF CRITICAL FACILITIES 1111 1112 It is the responsibility of the Town Council to identify and confirm that specific 1113 structures in their community meet the following criteria: 1114 1115 Critical Facilities are classified under the following categories: (a) Essential 1116 Services; (b) Hazardous Materials; (c) At-risk Populations; and (d) Vital to Restoring 1117 Normal Services. 1118 1119 a. Essential services facilities include public safety, emergency response, 1120 emergency medical, designated emergency shelters, communications, 1121 public utility plant facilities, and transportation lifelines. 1122 1123 These facilities consist of: 1124 i. Public safety (police stations, fire and rescue stations, emergency vehicle 1125 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 116 of 286 and equipment storage, and, emergency operation centers); 1126 ii. Emergency medical (hospitals, ambulance service centers, urgent care 1127 centers having emergency treatment functions, and non-ambulatory 1128 surgical structures but excluding clinics, doctors offices, and non-urgent 1129 care medical structures that do not provide these functions); 1130 iii. Designated emergency shelters; 1131 iv. Communications (main hubs for telephone, broadcasting equipment 1132 for cable systems, satellite dish systems, cellular systems, television, 1133 radio, and other 1134 emergency warning systems, but excluding towers, poles, lines, cables, 1135 and 1136 conduits); 1137 v. Public utility plant facilities for generation and distribution ( hubs, 1138 treatment plants, substations and pumping stations for water, power 1139 and gas, but not including towers, poles, power lines, buried pipelines, 1140 transmission lines, distribution lines, and service lines); and 1141 vi. Air Transportation lifelines (airports (municipal and larger), helicopter 1142 pads and structures serving emergency functions, and associated 1143 infrastructure (aviation control towers, air traffic control centers, and 1144 emergency equipment aircraft hangars). 1145 1146 Specific exemptions to this category include wastewater treatment plants 1147 (WWTP), non-potable water treatment and distribution systems, and 1148 hydroelectric power generating plants and related appurtenances. 1149 1150 Public utility plant facilities may be exempted if it can be demonstrated to the 1151 satisfaction of the Town Council that the facility is an element of a redundant 1152 system for which service will not be interrupted during a flood. At a 1153 minimum, it shall be demonstrated that redundant facilities are available 1154 (either owned by the same utility or available through an intergovernmental 1155 agreement or other contract) and connected, the alternative facilities are 1156 either located outside of the 100-year floodplain or are compliant with the 1157 provisions of this Article, and an operations plan is in effect that states how 1158 redundant systems will provide service to the affected area in the event of a 1159 flood. Evidence of ongoing redundancy shall be provided to the Town Council 1160 on an as-needed basis upon request. 1161 1162 b. Hazardous materials facilities include facilities that produce or store highly 1163 volatile, flammable, explosive, toxic and/or water-reactive materials. 1164 1165 These facilities may include: 1166 i. Chemical and pharmaceutical plants (chemical plant, 1167 pharmaceutical manufacturing); 1168 ii. Laboratories containing highly volatile, flammable, explosive, toxic 1169 and/or water-reactive materials; 1170 iii. Refineries; 1171 iv. Hazardous waste storage and disposal sites; and 1172 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 117 of 286 v. Above ground gasoline or propane storage or sales centers. 1173 1174 Facilities shall be determined to be Critical Facilities if they produce or 1175 store materials in excess of threshold limits. If the owner of a facility is 1176 required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to 1177 keep a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) on file for any chemicals stored 1178 or used in the work place, AND the chemical(s) is stored in quantities equal 1179 to or greater than the Threshold Planning Quantity (TPQ) for that chemical, 1180 then that facility shall be considered to be a Critical Facility. The TPQ for 1181 these chemicals is: either 500 pounds or the TPQ listed (whichever is 1182 lower) for the 356 chemicals listed under 40 C.F.R. § 302 (2010), also 1183 known as Extremely Hazardous Substances (EHS); or 10,000 pounds for any 1184 other chemical. This threshold is consistent with the requirements for 1185 reportable chemicals established by the Colorado Department of Health 1186 and Environment. OSHA requirements for MSDS can be found in 29 C.F.R. § 1187 1910 (2010). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulation 1188 “Designation, Reportable Quantities, and Notification,” 40 C.F.R. § 302 1189 (2010) and OSHA regulation “Occupational Safety and Health Standards,” 1190 29 C.F.R. § 1910 (2010) are incorporated herein by reference and include 1191 the regulations in existence at the time of the promulgation this ordinance, 1192 but exclude later amendments to or editions of the regulations. 1193 1194 Specific exemptions to this category include: 1195 1196 i. Finished consumer products within retail centers and households 1197 containing hazardous materials intended for household use, and 1198 agricultural products intended for agricultural use. 1199 ii. Buildings and other structures containing hazardous materials for 1200 which it can be demonstrated to the satisfaction of the local 1201 authority having jurisdiction by hazard assessment and certification 1202 by a qualified professional (as determined by the local jurisdiction 1203 having land use authority) that a release of the subject hazardous 1204 material does not pose a major threat to the public. 1205 iii. Pharmaceutical sales, use, storage, and distribution centers that do not 1206 manufacture pharmaceutical products. 1207 1208 These exemptions shall not apply to buildings or other structures that also 1209 function as Critical Facilities under another category outlined in this Article. 1210 1211 c. At-risk population facilities include medical care, congregate care, and schools. 1212 1213 These facilities consist of: 1214 i. Elder care ( nursing homes); 1215 ii. Congregate care serving 12 or more individuals ( day care and 1216 assisted living); 1217 iii. Public and private schools (pre-schools, K-12 schools), before-school 1218 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 118 of 286 and 1219 after-school care serving 12 or more children); 1220 1221 d. Facilities vital to restoring normal services including government operations. 1222 1223 These facilities consist of: 1224 i. Essential government operations (public records, courts, jails, 1225 building permitting and inspection services, community 1226 administration and management, maintenance and equipment 1227 centers); 1228 ii. Essential structures for public colleges and universities 1229 (dormitories, offices, and classrooms only). 1230 1231 These facilities may be exempted if it is demonstrated to the Town Council 1232 that the facility is an element of a redundant system for which service will not 1233 be interrupted during a flood. At a minimum, it shall be demonstrated that 1234 redundant facilities are available (either owned by the same entity or available 1235 through an intergovernmental agreement or other contract), the alternative 1236 facilities are either located outside of the 100-year floodplain or are compliant 1237 with this ordinance, and an operations plan is in effect that states how 1238 redundant facilities will provide service to the affected area in the event of a 1239 flood. Evidence of ongoing redundancy shall be provided to the Town Council 1240 on an as-needed basis upon request. 1241 1242 2. PROTECTION FOR CRITICAL FACILITIES 1243 1244 All new and substantially improved Critical Facilities and new additions to Critical 1245 Facilities located within the Special Flood Hazard Area shall be regulated to a higher 1246 standard than structures not determined to be Critical Facilities. For the purposes of 1247 this ordinance, protection shall include one of the following: 1248 1249 a. Location outside the Special Flood Hazard Area; or 1250 1251 b. Elevation of the lowest floor or floodproofing of the structure, together with 1252 attendant utility and sanitary facilities, to at least two feet above the Base 1253 Flood Elevation. 1254 1255 3. INGRESS AND EGRESS FOR NEW CRITICAL FACILITIES 1256 1257 New Critical Facilities shall, when practicable as determined by the Town Council, 1258 have continuous non-inundated access (ingress and egress for evacuation and 1259 emergency services) during a100-year flood event. 1260 1261 1262 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 119 of 286 Section Three: Severability. If any provision of this Ordinance or application hereof to 1263 any person or circumstance is held invalid, the invalidity shall not affect any other 1264 provision or application of this Ordinance which can be given effect without the invalid 1265 provision or application, and, to this end, the provisions of this Ordinance are severable. 1266 1267 INTRODUCED, READ AND APPROVED on first reading by the Town Council of the 1268 Town of Snowmass Village on __________, 2019 upon a motion by Town Council Member 1269 _____, the second of Town Council Member _____, and upon a vote of ___ in favor and 1270 ___ against. 1271 READ, APPROVED AND ADOPTED on second reading by the Town Council of the 1272 Town of Snowmass Village on __________, 2019 upon a motion by Town Council Member 1273 _____, the second of Town Council Member _____, and upon a vote of ___ in favor and 1274 ___ against. 1275 1276 1277 TOWN OF SNOWMASS VILLAGE 1278 Town Council 1279 1280 1281 By: ___________________________________ 1282 Markey Butler, Mayor 1283 ATTEST: 1284 1285 1286 ______________________________________ 1287 Rhonda B.

It is open to all community members, including full time residents, part time residents, employees, and guests. As with previous iterations, the survey has been timed so that the results can be reviewed as the Town prepares the budget for the upcoming year. The Town has contracted with ETC to conduct the 2019 Community Survey, which will be the Town’s fifth iteration. Staff and the ETC team have started drafting the 2019 survey, which mostly consists of similar questions from previous iterations. Asking similar questions is important for us to capture trends and compare our performance year-over-year. Questions that are no longer relevant, however, have been removed. Staff would like to gather feedback from the Town Council on the draft survey. The attached version (attachment A), is clean version for your review. Once the questions have been agreed upon, staff will continue to review and edit the survey to ensure the numbering, formatting, and questions are free of errors. Town staff aim to have the final Community Survey ready for execution around the July 4th holiday to take advantage of the increased presence of guests and part-time residents at that time. The survey will be electronic, but paper copies of the survey will be available for those who request it. It will be open for responses for approximately three weeks. 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 169 of 286 Upon completion of the 2019 Community Survey, ETC will be attending the Town Council meeting on Tuesday, September 3rd to present the report of results. FINANCIAL IMPACT: The Town estimates that the total cost to execute, advertise, and analyze the 2019 Community Survey will be $17,500. This is included in the 2019 budget. APPLICABILITY TO COUNCIL GOALS & OBJECTIVES: The 2019 Community Survey directly relates to the Town Council’s goal of increasing and strengthening Community Engagement. COUNCIL OPTIONS: 1. No formal action is required of the Town Council at this time. STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Review the draft survey and provide feedback.

You may recall that Rodeo Place was itself built in several phases spanning from 2007 to 2012. In 2017 we developed a schematic plan to add housing in three areas: along Stallion Circle near the entrance to the development, immediately adjacent to the existing tennis courts, and at the northeast portion of the site at the former Seven Star parcel. Based on this plan, the Council appropriated $3.3 million to subsidize development of approximately 16-18 new housing units. PROGRESS TO DATE: In mid-2018 and following a competitive RFP process we engaged Charles Cunniffe Architects to provide full architectural design and construction oversight services for the development of this expanded phase, now named Coffey Place in honor of the late Joe Coffey. SGM is providing engineering services and HP Kumar is overseeing the geotechnical work. We also undertook a formal competitive Request for Qualifications for a Construction Manager/General Contractor which has led to the selection of R.A. Nelson to undertake the development, thereby completing our team. R.A. Nelson provided a full construction cost estimate as part of the selection process based on the schematic design. 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 275 of 286 A community meeting was held in early January and all adjacent residents and interested parties were invited. The meeting was extremely well attended and there were many questions and comments provided. The feedback was generally very favorable, and most of the suggestions involved traffic flow, site density, storage and landscaping suggestions. There was also a great deal of interest in how households will qualify and whether there will be “in-complex” priorities or other changes to the currently process. Our submission is expected to be heard by the Planning Commission in early July. It will include rezoning of two of the parcels to Multifamily and subdivision approval, including re-platting. Coffey Place will consist of 17 new housing units: • 6 new two-bedroom duplex units of 1,465 square feet each plus a 510 square foot garage; • 11 new single-family detached units ranging in size from 1,704 to 2,431 square feet each, plus 2-car garages of approximately 625 square feet, all with three- bedrooms; • At least one of the single-family homes will be fully ADA accessible; • Units will be designed to be congruent with both the surrounding Rodeo Place development and the natural contours of the site. • Homes have incorporated some of the feedback from existing Rodeo Place homeowners, such as additional storage and parking space. • Coffey Place will be controlled and managed by a to-be-formed Homeowner’s Association with its own governance structure. FINANCIAL IMPACT: From a financial perspective, we have been guided the by the following goals: • The development is intended to serve a range of household sizes and types; • While designed to fit into the current neighborhood, we sought in create space that could increase livability for the future owners, wherever possible; • The prices of the homes will meet a segment of the market that represents the workforce housing needs in Snowmass Village; • The subsidy available to the project from the Town is limited to the $3.3 million allocated in 2017. As noted above, great attention has been paid to developing appealing and high-quality homes in a manner that fits in well with the surrounding neighborhood and natural environment. We looked to develop new homes that would be appealing and would serve that segment of the potential market not currently met in the market, sometimes 06-03-19 TC Packet Page 276 of 286 referred to as “missing middle” housing. The “missing middle” are multi-unit and clustered housing types compatible in scale with single-family homes that help meet the growing demand diverse housing options at a range that works for moderate-income families. We received estimated construction costs as part of the contractor RFQ process. The complexity of the site (wetlands, poor soils and difficult slopes) have constrained the site development and added appreciably to the overall cost. In addition, escalating construction costs in the Roaring Fork Valley resulted in construction costs that were just over $13 million in total, or an average of $770,000 per home. We estimate that design, engineering and other soft costs will add another million to the price tag. While these costs are high, the subsidy will reduce the eventual cost to the purchaser. The team initially looked toward reducing the overall size of the development to save cost; however, on a per-home basis that did little to change the eventual sale price and had the disadvantage of resulting in fewer units built. We are currently and will continue to look for potential cost savings as we go forward, but it is unlikely that the total project cost will be reduced significantly, given the issues with the soils and local construction costs.

Providing a variety of affordable housing options within the Village not only enables community members to contribute to the local economy, it also helps to build a strong, well connected, and engaged community with a viable workforce. The Housing Department continues to actively pursue the long- standing goal of housing our full-time workforce households that want to live in the community, including developing new opportunities that provide attractive and desirable homeownership opportunities. Coffey Place will provide new homes in close proximity to local amenities and transportation and will offer the benefits of homeownership to seventeen Snowmass Village households with moderate incomes.
