MEMORANDUM TO: Snowmass Village Town Council FROM: Planning Department DATE: September 6, 2011 SUBJECT: Resolution No. 24, Series of 2011 A Subdivision Exemption for the condominiumization of an existing duplex into two residential condominiums on Lot 4, Ridge Run Unit One Subdivision. Applicant: Tim Semrau Semrau Investments, LLC Planner: Jim Wahlstrom, Senior Planner I. PURPOSE AND ACTION REQUESTED OF COUNCIL: The purpose of this Town Council meeting would be to review the subdivision exemption request for the condominiumization of the duplex on Lot 4, Ridge Run Unit One, and either approve, approve with condition or deny the accompanying resolution. II. SUMMARY DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT: Lot 4, Ridge Run Unit One contains 31,766 square feet or 0.73 acre. The property along North Ridge Lane is zoned Duplex (`DU'). The maximum floor area permitted for the lot is 4,500 square feet. The two units within the duplex are almost mirror images of each other, both containing 2,245.5 square feet. The subdivision exemption would create two residential condominium units, each with fee simple interest in and title to an individual air space contained within a condominiumized unit. Each unit includes three bedrooms with a double -car garage and space behind each garage for at least one vehicle. There are two guest parking spaces accessed by a driveway beside landscaped areas on the south side of the building within the proposed front general common area where each unit would have an undivided fifty percent (50 ownership interest. The side and rear yards are proposed to be split as limited common elements for the units with the divided interest. The decks are also shown as limited common elements to the affected units. The 20 -foot building setbacks on the sides and front of the lot have been met. III. BACKGROUND: The Applicant desires divided interested in the duplex units while creating common undivided interest for general element areas. The subdivision exemption application was submitted on July 20, 2011 to propose condominiumization of the duplex. No Council action was taken previously. The applicant initially submitted building construction plans for review, which were issued a building permit. The duplex was completed this summer. 1 1 Page IV.

PURPOSE AND ACTIONS REQUESTED OF COUNCIL: To review and determine whether or not to waive the Renewable Offset Mitigation Program fees for proposed snowmelt and associated components for the Interlude Condominium Association II. BACKGROUND The Interlude Condominium Association would like to propose snow melting approximately 6,000 square feet of courtyard area that is currently owned by the Town and maintained by the Interlude. As per Ordinance 2, Series of 2011, Section 3, Exterior Energy Uses. "This section shall apply to exterior energy uses including, but not limited to, outdoor pools and spas, snowmelt systems and heated garages. Applicants shall have three options, or combination thereof, available to satisfy the requirements of the REOP Mitigation Obligation." Options 1 2 Mitigate 50% of the project's REOP Mitigation Obligation with on -site renewable energy system or, with off -site renewable energy system that has been approved by the Chief Building Official. Option 3 Pay fee -in -lieu for 100% of the project's REOP Mitigation Obligation. Section 8. Waivers "Applicant may submit written requests for waivers of any or all of the provisions of REOP to the Building Department for consideration on a case by case basis by the Town Council. All such waiver requests must be submitted and considered by Town Council prior to the application for a building permit. Such waivers may be granted by Resolution of the Town Council upon 1 findings made by the Town Council based on credible evidence presented by the Applicant in the following categories a) Community benefit b) Public safety need c) Unique site consideration on the property that causes a demonstrable reduction in safety for users of the property d) Unique site considerations on the property that cause undue hardship to mitigate energy use on -site due to unfavorable solar access or adverse effects to adjacent property. "Town Council shall consider the totality of the circumstances including the evidence presented pursuant to the categories above when making decisions regarding waivers." III. APPLICABLE REGULATIONS Municipal Code Section 18 -224, Building Efficiency Standards and Renewable Energy Offset Program IV. DISCUSION ITEMS: ALTERNATIVES AND IMPLICATION Council has three options: 1. Deny the waiver, 2. Accept the waiver request and the value of which is calculated below Option 3 of the Ordinance would involve a fee -in -lieu of: 6,000 square feet at $34.00 per square foot: (Table 3 of Ordinance) Assume a boiler efficiency of 90 $34.00 X 6,000 SF .90 $226,666 fee -in -lieu 3. discuss whether a compromise as described below is acceptable. V. STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS AND FINDINGS Staff recommends a compromise of an on -site or off -site renewable energy system in conjunction with a reduced overall snowmelt area. A detailed site plan should be submitted to evaluate and reduce the actual snowmelt area required to ensure public safety. Once the minimum area of snow melt to ensure public safety is determined, Council may elect to waive a portion or all of the required fee -in -lieu, or, provide for a combination of fee -in -lieu in conjunction with on -site or off -site renewable systems and a partial waiver of fees. 2 9 10 Condominium Interlude ci BOX 5200 SNOWMASS VILLAGE, COLORADO 81615 (970) 923 -3068 June 27, 2011 Town Council Town of Snowmass Village PO Box 5010 Snowmass Village, CO 81615 RE: Request for Waiver of REOP Fee Dear Council Members: We are writing to ask the Town of Snowmass Village to waive the Renewable Energy Offset Program fees for snow melting the 6,000 square foot courtyard at the Interlude Condominiums. We would like to snowmelt the courtyard to make it a safe area for our owners, guests and employees. During your recent deliberations over possible amendments to the REOP, extensive discussion took place over how to treat dangerous situations such as the asphalt courtyard at the Interludes, which builds up snow and ice during the winter despite diligent efforts to keep it clear. It is our understanding that the Town Council decided that properties with special circumstances such as ours should apply for a waiver of the REOP fees directly to the Town Council. As noted above, the asphalt area consists of 6,000 square feet. It is currently owned by the Town of Snowmass Village, and your Public Works Department has expressed a strong desire to have the Interlude Condominium Association accept ownership of it. In these cases, your policy has been to bring the asphalt surface up to first class condition prior to the transfer, or to provide cash in lieu if the property chooses. Hunt Walker has informed our Manager that the funds could be made available this summer if the Interlude decides to move forward. This area has proven to be very unsafe to owners, guests and employees. Attached are two photos taken in April. We had an employee fall and break her arm in two places just this last season. To the Interlude Association, snow melting this area is not for a luxury amenity but is a necessity for the safety of all concerned. This area sees no sun and remains an ice skating rink until May. Guests must access this area to get to and from some units, the elevator and their cars. (We have had cars slide and come close to hitting the side of the building as well as pedestrians.) We invite you to do a site visit and view for yourselves the issue. The Interlude would not want to accept ownership of the courtyard in its current unsafe condition, and frankly is not in the position financially to be able to afford to install snowmelt to make it safer if we also have the pay the REOP fee. (As it currently reads, the fee would be $148,800 by our calculations, literally doubling the cost of the project.) We are reluctant to spend further money on designing the project and putting it before the owners until we know whether the Council is willing to waive the fee. Thank you for considering our request. Please let us know if you have any questions or if there is any further information that we can provide. Sincerely, The Interlude Board of Managers Lacy Boggess Ernest Boone Greg Rulon From: Spence, D— Sent: Tuesday, ��l�'�� August 23 2011 ��1B �W J������EIVED To: 'Mark Kittle' Cc Jomi Downs; Sinclair, Skip Subject: FVV: Interlude RE[}PWaiver AUG 2 3 2 Attachments: |nt Snow Melt Site P|npdf w.ow/no$aVillage �'mnmunUv Development [Nark, I think we have a come up with a pretty good site plan, based on some previous work.

DATE: September 6, 2011 SUBJECT: Resolution No. 25, Series of 2011 A Subdivision Exemption for the Interlude Condominium Association, Inc. and authorization to implement administrative procedures for processing certain subdivision exemption requests in West Village. Applicant: Interlude Condominium Association, Inc. Staff: Chris Conrad, Planning Director John Dresser, Town Attorney 1. PURPOSE AND ACTION REQUESTED OF COUNCIL: Interlude Condominium Association, Inc. "Applicant submitted a subdivision exemption application to allow the conveyance of land from Snowmass Resort Association, Inc. "SRA to them and permit the completion of their exemption plat. In addition, staff is requesting authorization to implement administrative procedures for processing certain subdivision exemption requests in West Village. It is requested that Town Council either approve, approve with modifications or deny the accompanying resolution (Attachment 2). II. SUMMARY DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT: The Applicant received a 1.277 acre parcel of land from the SRA on January 28, 2011. The land is located between their condominium buildings and Fanny Hill. The Applicant had received another piece of common area located between their project and Laurelwood on June 6, 1989. Both land transfers are technically subdivision violations pursuant to Section 16A -5 -410 of the Snowmass Village Municipal Code "SVMC With subdivision exemption approval, the Applicant will be able to record an exemption plat effectively combining Units H -1 and H -2, West Village (containing the original Interlude condominium buildings) with the land conveyed by the SRA. III. BACKGROUND: The Town Council should be aware that the remaining SRA assets, including common area and other slivers of land within West Village, need to be conveyed to abutting landowners in order to complete the ultimate dissolution of the SRA. Staff has determined that subdivision exemption review and approval for the SRA land transfers pursuant to the SRA dissolution plan would be very similar to the application currently under review for this Applicant. Staff recommends that Town Council consider a delegation of authority to permit and implement administrative procedures that permit the processing of the numerous subdivision exemption applications in West Village that need to occur for SRA land transfers to adjacent landowners pursuant to the SRA dissolution plan. Please refer to Section Five of the enclosed resolution which describes the administrative procedure being proposed. IV. APPLICABLE REGULATIONS: Municipal Code Section 16A -5- 500 -530, Subdivision Exemptions V. DISCUSSION ITEMS: ALTERNATIVES AND IMPLICATIONS The SRA has conveyed twelve (12) parcels to eight (8) condominium projects In 2011. All of these transfers plus an additional fourteen (14) conveyances occurring between 1982 and 2011 should be considered subdivision violations unless subdivision exemption approval is granted authorizing the conveying of title when no development will result thereafter, without subdivision or PUD approval. VI. STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS AND FINDINGS: Staff recommends approving both the subdivision exemption for the Applicant and Section Five of the enclosed resolution that sets forth procedures that permit the administrative processing of subdivision exemption applications in West Village. VII. NEXT STEPS: If authorized, staff will commence working with condominium projects within West Village to administratively process subdivision exemption applications for land being transferred to them by the SRA. Should problems arise that cannot properly be resolved at the administrative level, they will be presented to Town Council for direction.

O. Box 5010 Snowmass Village, CO 81615 Subject: Interlude Application for Subdivision Exemption Dear Town Council Members: The Interlude Condominium Association is applying for a Subdivision Exemption to incorporate the sliver of land deeded to it by Snowmass Resort Association (SRA) and recorded on January 28, 2011. As you will recall, it has been a long standing goal of SRA, its members, and the Town of Snowmass Village to dissolve SRA. in order to do so, SRA must divest itself of its assets, including slivers of land. It has been the SRA Board of Governors' policy to deed the slivers to the adjacent properties, and in at least two instances the Town will be the recipient. To amend the Plats of the properties to incorporate the slivers, SRA is in the awkward position of not having funds to assist the process. Consequently, each property receiving land is paying the cost of surveying the parcel and processing the deed. The Interlude is asking the Town to waive its Subdivision Exemption fees in exchange for Interlude bearing all of the rest of the expense. As you will see on the Exemption Plat, the entire sliver is covered by a Ski Easement. In addition, there is a 5 foot wide Public Easement the entire length of the uphill boundary line, which is to be eventually matched by a 5 foot easement on the Laurelwood side. This will provide public access to the ski slope from Lots #12 and #13. Not included in the Exemption Plat is the asphalt area of the Interlude, which remains under ownership by the Town. AO We believe that the Interlude application provides an opportunity to start to correct long- standing issues with property plats throughout the village, and as such is very beneficial to the Town. At the same time it will facilitate the dissolution of SRA, and accommodate the land transfers made necessary by the dissolution. We would very much appreciate your approval of the Application for Subdivision Exemption and waiver of fees. Very truly yours, ami Downs, General Manager David F.

PURPOSE The purpose of this memorandum is to provide Council with general information and guidance regarding the installation of at grade pedestrian crosswalks in the Village. This informational discussion was identified as an action in the Town Council's 2011 Work Plan. It was also an item of interest of the Part Time Residents Advisory Board II. BACKGROUND Development submissions, road improvements, bus stop installations and citizen requests are just some of the activities that have triggered a discussion and contemplation of a marked crosswalk to address pedestrian safety. Town Council and staff should be able to provide a consistent response to requests for these installations and the pros and cons of putting one in place should be carefully considered prior to installation. III. DISCUSSION ITEMS I have attached the information sheet, "What You Need to Know About Crosswalks" along with CDOT's brochure, "Marked Crosswalks We have found these pamphlets to be useful tools when educating the public about crosswalks. One of the key points emphasized in both of these guides is that the painting of stripes on the roadway is not always the answer to pedestrian safety that many people think it is. IV. STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS As outlined in the information provided by the Colorado Department of Transportation, staff would recommend that an engineering study be 1 completed prior to the approval of a marked pedestrian crosswalk at a new location. Some of the items to be reviewed would include; The number of pedestrians that will be served. The function of the roadway. The volume and speed of the vehicles. The width of the roadway and sight lines. Both current and future predicted conditions. The typical abilities of the pedestrians using the crosswalk (e.g. age disabilities, etc.) In addition, the following questions should be addressed: Will the proposed installation produce the desired results in terms of safety and mobility for both pedestrians and the drivers? Will the proposed installation have credibility, acceptance and promote compliance by pedestrians and drivers? 2 n o 3 a o I cr S I o c im co ar o m N 0cL a Q O 3 0 Fn_ -0 n-0 ;0 5m 0 0 3 o.n y vi 3 oN D r* N��o m "m n CD m 3 y CD '1 CL o ��m M °-v, CD mo@ r o c -o a�o- vcn a' tD00m I y (n o�c�a)' n "ovum :3 x302`0 to cn CL M lb to O: Cn 7c 0 (n 0 O N cQ O C C= x C) Cp =r 33 (a �p� NN=mN. m aoa o r •t 0 CD 0 O th ID c c M N CD o ca D CD O~ CD m N CL 0 v o v d v y cl) m< m 0 m m O O m� m m o 3`<am p CD (n a= En CD C n (n 3 ta�mc� CD 3 0 3 c (D 3 0 3 a a� N m o CD =r =r o o DXo CD 'V cc o 03 to m :3 v� o w a m o m o c� v U h a cn o o cn ca to m m ca' v o. m 3 m m o 4m v CD`< NZ CL ni mom o C L aN a v m ocn a N �,r. m �m CA CD N O n' cr m O N _O..

PURPOSE AND ACTIONS REQUESTED OF COUNCIL: The Town Council is being requested, as the property owner, to consent to a Special Review application for a "Tennis Bubble" to cover up to four of our outdoor courts for indoor tennis in the winter. At this meeting the council will be discussing and acting on this request as owners of the property. II. BACKGROUND The Snowmass Village Recreation Center is one of the most complete recreation facilities in the Roaring Fork Valley. One of the more unique aspects of this facility is that all the amenities are so close and within walking, biking or bus stop distance to all the users in the valley. This tennis bubble would provide an additional recreational opportunity for all the users year round. The addition of this facility will most likely significantly increase membership for those tennis players that are looking for a place to play in the winter. This would also be a great amenity for the guests to Snowmass Village in the. winter. It is estimated that one out of four guests who come to Aspen/Snowmass in winter do not ski or board. Off mountain activities help deliver a more attractive experience for more of our guests. An indoor tennis facility would add another amenity in the mix which broadens the overall appeal of this resort when vacationers are making a decision between Snowmass Village and our competitors. ACE -IT has contacted the Town of Snowmass Village Parks Recreation Department with a proposal of donating the cost of purchasing and construction cost of a tennis bubble. The Tennis Bubble would seasonally cover two of the tennis courts at the Town Park Recreation facility with the goal of covering four in the future. For the last three years, ACE -IT has been working with the City of Aspen to possibly enclose courts to create public year -round tennis. After some progress this group decided to explore other sites that may be more suitable for an enclosure for covered tennis courts. ACE -IT has determined that the Snowmass Village Tennis courts are more suitable for this type of facility because of the 3-4 court construction, access to public transportation, public parking and the proximity to the Snowmass Village Recreation Center that will provide adequate supervision. (See attached ACE -IT document) ACE -IT has provided a preliminary Performa that indicates this facility will bring in revenue that exceeds the operating cost of the facility during the winter months. That would mean that the cost to the town would be minimal and would not increase the subsidy for the Parks Recreation department. The Town of Snowmass Village Parks Recreation Department currently offers a summer tennis program for all ages. These programs have grown in popularity so much that we have started offering indoor tennis in the gymnasium during the winter months. These classes are exciting and well attended but are limited by times and space. (See attached memo form Recreation Program Specialist) III. LAND USE "Recreation" is the underlining zoning for the property that the existing four courts are located on, and the outdoor tennis courts are an allowed use. The installation of a tennis bubble would require Special Review for enclosing the courts, similar to the process the Recreation Center went through. IV. STAFF RECOMMENDATION Staff recommends the Town consent to an application for Special Review for a tennis bubble to cover up to four of the Town's existing outdoor tennis courts. The Recreation Center staff and the Public Works Director find this proposal attractive for the following reasons: 1. ACE -IT will fund the capital cost of construction and installation. 2. Added Recreational amenity for Snowmass Village Residents and Guests. 3. A winter marketing tool brings guests into Snowmass Village who may not be skiers 4. Potential for increased membership reducing subsidy 5. More affordable tennis programming opportunities V. NEXT STEPS Next Steps include: Submit for Special Review process 3 CACE= August 26, 2011 Snowmass Village Town Council, ACE -IT is a community based organization formed to promote and support tennis opportunities throughout the Roaring Fork Valley. Our current focus is to create a seasonal indoor tennis facility with quality programs and affordable rates that is publicly accessible to both locals and guests. Currently no such facility exists in this valley. Tennis is a lifelong social sport that is easy to learn and can be enjoyed at any level. It is the fastest growing traditional sport in North America. But as interest in tennis has grown, opportunities for year round tennis have been dwindling in our valley. Tennis courts are being replaced by condominiums. Clubs that used to welcome non members no longer do, or allow very limited access at increasingly high rates. For many locals and guests, there is no place to play tennis in the winter. Aspen High School tennis teams have one of the highest participation rates of any sports. The boy's team has a record 43 participants this season. Many of these teenagers have no place to practice in the winter. Both locals and guests would benefit from public indoor courts and programs. Other resort towns have successful and expanding year -round programs: Park City is in the process of renovating and upgrading its seven public indoor courts. Steamboat recently expanded from four courts to six. Breckenridge also has two successful indoor public courts. Steamboat and Park City regularly hold tournaments drawing hundreds of participants, most of whom bring families and friends to hotels, restaurants and shops. These tournaments also provide exposure and the potential for repeat visits. With a public facility, members from all local clubs can play together with non members expanding opportunities and building community. This would be the only facility in this valley where affordable tennis is completely accessible to the public in the winter. With a significant percentage of our winter guest being non skiers, tennis would be a great reason to choose Snowmass. What ACE -IT is proposing Through private donations, ACE -IT will raise capital funds needed to seasonally enclose two to four existing Snowmass Recreation Department tennis courts. Approximately $275K is needed to seasonally enclose two courts and $450K is needed to enclose four. Snowmass will own the bubble, with the agreement that indoor tennis programs and court time will be made accessible to the public, and that fees will remain as low as possible while still paying for operational expenses. Snowmass Recreation Department will run and operate the facility with input from an ACE -IT advisory committee. A detailed web: www.rfvtennis.org email: ace it@rfvtennis.org phone: 970 279 1223 agreement acceptable to both ACE -IT and the Recreation Department will be adopted as soon as possible after land use has been approved. Proposed Structure A seasonal air supported structure (commonly referred to as a tennis bubble) is the most economical, energy efficient and flexible solution. It is more energy efficient than a permanent building as no utilities are used during the summer. In the winter, lighting needs are reduced during the day, and solar gain reduces heating needs. Another advantage is that all outdoor courts will be available in the summer. This structure provides great flexibility as it can easily be expanded or reduced in size, its location can be moved if necessary, and if for some unforeseen reason it is no longer needed, the structure can be removed. There is no risk to the town. Why Snowmass? The Snowmass Recreation Courts are the nicest hard courts in the valley. The post- tensioned concrete construction means they will retain their quality; there is little maintenance required, and no additional foundation is needed to support a bubble. The layout of four courts in a row allows for easy flexibility from two courts to four. The site is easily accessible and convenient to the entire valley. It is a free RFTA bus ride from Aspen every 15 minutes. An indoor bus stop is at the site, as is ample parking. The Snowmass Recreation Center with its pool, extensive workout facility, locker rooms and check in, provides an ideal situation. Year -round tennis will enhance existing recreation offerings, and has the potential to increase participation in existing classes and increase usage of other amenities. There is great potential to develop quality year -round tennis programs in conjunction with other activities. We hope to make this a win -win situation for Snowmass and the tennis community. Please support bringing public indoor tennis to Snowmass and the Roaring Fork Valley.

It would increase the recreational opportunities currently available. The addition would benefit Snowmass residents and patrons from both up and down valley who may not currently have access to a year -round facility that enclosure offers. First and foremost, the ability to provide year -round tennis would be a great asset to our recreation facility and programming. Current usage shows that there is high demand for tennis classes, clinics, and tournaments. With enclosure, these tennis programs could be easily offered throughout the year. This would, in turn, bring in more memberships and provide greater recreational opportunity. While we currently offer limited fall/winter tennis programs indoor, we do not have the capability to offer as many as we would like. Offering indoor tennis requires us to use facilities currently used for other programming such as basketball, indoor soccer, volleyball, after school programs, fitness classes, party rentals and more. These are all profitable recreational programs. Enclosure would add a large year round space would benefit our evolving tennis program as well as all our existing recreation programs. I believe that the addition of an indoor facility such as the one being proposed has the potential to boost our current recreation facility memberships and will attract patrons from up and down the valley. With the capability of offering tennis programming year round without compromising existing recreational programs, we are given the ability to expand our existing programming. Increased programming opportunities are important to the viability of any recreation department and this facility has the potential to offer that.

Item No. 2 PUBLIC NON AGENDA ITEMS Mayor Boineau introduced Vaughn Schaffer a local artist and blacksmith in the Valley that has a vision and would like to create a mastodon out of metal. He has been talking to Dr. Kirk Johnson and visiting the DMNS. He replicates bones out of metal and wanted to share his idea. He thinks it would look good at the intercept lot or at the round about. Council would be interested in sending Vaughn Schaffer to the Tusk Force and meeting with them. Russ Forrest stated that there was also an article in the New York Times today about Snowmass Village and the dig! Lois Upper, a Snowmass Village Resident, asked that Council review the housing policy regarding applicants for employee housing work at least 8 consecutive months of employment in Snowmass Village. She provided an email that was sent to the Town Council Members and also some bullet points with suggestions in widening the parameters to the existing formula of eligibility. Mayor Boineau would like this to be brought to the attention of the Housing Committee when they reconvene again, the guidelines have been reviewed recently and will not be looked at again until Council directs it. 07 -05 -11 Minutes Page 2 of 11 Item No. 3 COUNCIL UPDATES Mayor Boineau stated that last Wednesday, Clay Owen an employee of the Snowmass Village Police Department, lost his battle with cancer and passed away. There was a moment of silence in his honor. Mayor Boineau also noted that Madeleine Osberger will be leaving the Snowmass Sun after many years of being the editor. He presented her with a token of the Town's appreciation. Council Member Wilkinson thanked the Snowmass Tourism Office for bringing in EMU over the Fourth of July weekend. He noted there were a lot of people on the Mall and good music. He also noted the Free Concert Series has started each Thursday night on Fanny Hill come listen to free music. Mayor Boineau also noted that July 9th and 10th is the Wild West Show. Item No. 4 CONSIDERATION OF A REQUEST BY ASPEN COUNTRY DAY SCHOOL TO THE TOWN OF SNOWMASS VILLAGE SEEKING TOWN CONSENT, AS LANDOWNER OF THE REAL PROPERTY KNOWN AS PARCEL F, HORSE RANCH PUD, TO INCLUDE THE PROPERTY IN A LAND USE APPLICATION Town Attorney John Dresser noted the purpose of this meeting is to approve or deny a request by Aspen Country Day School "ACDS to consent to the inclusion of Parcel F, Horse Ranch PUD in a land use application pursuant to Snowmass Village Municipal Code Chapter 16A to construct a school. ACDS is contemplating re- locating the current campus from the Castle Creek valley and would like to explore the concept of using Parcel F for the new campus. In reviewing their programmatic need for a previously considered campus site, ACDS identified a range of floor area required as approximately 50,000 to 70,000 square feet. Parcel F is approximately 14 acres. He noted that Parcel F was dedicated to TOSV as part of the development of Horse Ranch. It is zoned "PUB" Public and pursuant to the Horse Ranch PUD Land Use Plan had permitted use by right "Public facilities to be defined by special review use approval the site has been informally referred to as the "school site" since the review of the Horse Ranch PUD proposal. Dresser stated that Council as the landowner can consent to the submission of an application and this is all ACDS is requesting at this point. He also noted that such consent is not an agreement to convey the land to ACDS and does not bind the Town of Snowmass Village. Town Clerk Rhonda Coxon stated that she has entered some letters into the record that were received prior to the Town Council Meeting and she also distributed them to the Council Members, Town Manager and Town Attorney. At this time Tom Newland the Owners Representative for Aspen Country Day School introduced Glenn Horn the Planner for the project and Carolyn Hines who is the Director 07 -05 -11 Minutes Page 3 of 11 of Advancement and Communication for the school. At this time Ms. Hines provided some background information on the school and reviewed the schools mission statement and she also noted that the school is a 501 C3 not for profit organization. Hines provided information regarding the shared campus and the desire for summer programs and a permanent home. Glenn Horn the Planner for the Aspen Country Day School presented the request to Council to use Parcel F in a land use application and provide Town Council with a Pre Sketch application under a Special Review applicant to see if the school would be an appropriate use for this piece of land. At this time Mayor Boineau asked for comments from the Council in regards to this request. Council Member Kucker provided comments first, he stated that Parcel F is not open space but undeveloped land, he stated the Town of Snowmass Village has spent 7 million dollars on open space and he finds the request to be quite unusual and he is not in favor of it and will vote against it. Council Member Wilkinson inquired about the name "school site" and about the Aspen School District having any interest in the site. Wilkinson does not have a problem with this Parcel F being used in the Sketch Plan process. Council Member Butler asked some historical questions of Hines in regards to the land. Butler stated she would like to hear comments from the Public before making any decisions. Council Member Haber also requested to hear comments from the Public before making any decisions. Greg Smith resident of Snowmass Village on Oak Ridge road spoke to visual impacts, view corridor, elk migration and language within the Comprehensive Plan. He stated this parcel is important open space and is not the proper location for a public or private school and her encourages a no vote by the Council. Rick Griffin, a resident of Snowmass Village and member of the Financial Advisory Board and the Housing Board but representing the Snowmass Homeowner Association as President, read a letter from the Snowmass Homeowners Association and encouraged Council to vote no on the proposal for a school site on Parcel F. Dale Rands, President of the Horse Ranch Homeowner Association, stated his disagreement with the statements of Council Member Kucker but does not agree with the statements made by Mayor Boineau. His board is encouraging a no vote for Parcel F being used for a school. Billy Garaffa a home owner at the Rodeo Place employee housing, feels a school makes a tight knit community and he is in favor of it. He feels Council should at least look at the proposal and seriously consider what this school can do for this community. Paul Benton a resident and homeowner in Melton Ranch stated he is an enthusiastic supporter of this school and site. Snowmass Village needs public amenities to keep people in Snowmass Village and we should at least look at the project. 07 -05 -11 Minutes Page 4 of 11 Jim Rohman, a homeowner in Horse Ranch, stated we keep talking about the benefits this brings to the community but we don't about the traffic that will come with it. He noted maybe they should move the school to Base Village. George Falk, a homeowner in Snowmass Village, thanked the presenters from the Country Day for identifying the obstacles and challenges this Parcel has in order to be developed. He felt that with all the land in the County and other Towns why are the applicants concentrating on this pristine piece of land. Norbert Hausch owns a home in Snowmass Village off of Horse Ranch drive and spends two weeks a year in Snowmass Village. This is zoned open space and should stay open space. He also reminded everyone of the bylaws put in place to protect the open space of Parcel F. Alex Boyer, an owner of a house in Horse Ranch, urged Town Council to vote against this proposal. At this time Council commented: Council Member Haber stated he does not see how this site would work for this particular project. He encourages Country Day to continue looking but he does not feel this is appropriate for this site. Council Member Wilkinson read from the Comprehensive Plan and he feels the school would add to our growth as a community and would be in favor of looking at this proposal and continuing with the process. Council Member Butler stated that she the concept of the Aspen Country Day but trying to weigh the preservation of this particular piece of property at this time. Mayor Boineau is in agreement of taking the next step in the application process. Mayor Bill Boineau made the motion to approve the request by Aspen County Day seeking the Town's consent as landowner of Parcel F, to include in a land use application. John Wilkinson seconded the motion. The Motion failed by a vote of 2 in favor to 3 opposed. Voting Aye: Mayor Bill Boineau, and John Wilkinson. Voting Nay: Markey Butler, Fred Kucker, and Jason Haber. Town Council took break at this time. Item No. 5 FINANCIAL UPDATE Lf 07 -05 -11 Minutes Page 5 of 11 Town Manager Russ Forrest noted this is the financial update that was scheduled for the June 6, 2011 and continued to this meeting. Finance Director Marianne Rakowski will be reviewing the 2011 revised budget numbers and attached are the updated 2011 revised numbers for the General Fund, RETT, Fund and the Excise Tax Fund. Rakowski is also asking for direction from Council on the following items: General Fund Volunteer Program Ice Age Consultant Extension Police Officer expense equipment Merit Pool RETT Fund RETT Revenues Summer Mountain Maintenance Open Space- Trail/Wildlife Study Rakowski reviewed each fund with the Town Council the General Fund At the 3/21/11 meeting; the General Fund showed an additional $668,423 in revenues, mostly from the property tax increase for Droste and Transportation services. The increase in expenditures from March showed an increase of $894,233, most of this is adding the expenditures for Droste and Transportation. Summer service, as well as some expenditures that were budgeted for in 2010, but were carried over to 2011. The 6/6/11 column includes additional revenues of $115,050, mostly due to increases in the Transfers in from the RETT and Road Fund to account for the increase in vehicle gas oil costs. There is an additional $232,745 in expenditures, which is detailed in the attachment and includes both increases and decreases in budgeted expenditures. The expenditures also includes a merit pool of $153,000, which is a 3% increase ove the annual budgeted payroll amount. Since potential raises would not be effective until July 1 the range of raises (based on performance) would be from 0% to 6 which is similar to how it was managed prior to the economic downturn. There are a couple of requested positions that have been discussed at staff level that may be brought forward to Council during the normal budget process. We have not made any adjustments to the sales tax projections at this time, although we are anticipating being up from budget for 2011. The current projected ending fund balance for 2011 revised is $6.4M. RETT Fund There are three changes to the RETT Fund since the 3/21/11 meeting. The first one proposes to increase the RETT revenues by $185,000 based on Y -T -D RETT collections, thereby increasing the budget from $1,250,000 to $1,435,000. Through am 07 -05 -11 Minutes Page 6 of 11 5/11/11, the Town has collected $740K. In 2010, the Town collected $1,624,000 in RETT. On the expenditure side, we increased the Transfer out General Fund for Transportation Vehicle Gas Oil increases and for the Transportation rolling stock costs associated with the addition of the summer bus service. We also added $15K for Summer Mountain Trail Maintenance. The current projected ending fund balance for 2011 revised is $2.3M. Excise Tax Fund There are no changes to the revenues of this fund at this time although we have not received any excise taxes y -t -d as of 5/11 /11. The only change to expenditures in this fund is the additions of the Fire Alarm System and the Foundation Repairs that Council approved on 5/2/11. Council began discussion on the General Fund requests beginning with the Volunteer Program with a request of $5,000 and this was approved by Council except for Council Member Wilkinson. The next item for discussion was the Ice Age Consultant Extension for two additional months, Council Member Haber was opposed to the additional $3,000 and Council Member Kucker recused and the rest of Council approve the request. The next item is for an additional Police Officer and equipment, Chief Smythe explained the staffing levels to date. The amount for equipment replacement is $19,000. The $19,000 was approved unanimously. Town Manager Russ Forrest spoke to the Merit Pool request for all employees. The request was for 3% merit pool. After a lengthy discussion the Council approved the merit pool request and allotted up to $4,000 for the Community Picnic and to still solicit donations. Rakowski asked if everything on the page 11 in the packet which is the Expenditure Operating Capital was acceptable to Council. She explained the savings and asked for a motion by Council. John Wilkinson made the motion to approve the Expenditures- Operating Capital from March 21, 2011 revised on June 6, 2011. Fred Kucker seconded the motion. The motion was approved by a vote of 5 in favor to 0 opposed. Voting Aye: Mayor Bill Boineau, John Wilkinson, Markey Butler, Fred Kucker, and Jason Haber. Voting Nay: None. Rakowski continued with discussion on the RETT fund and Public Works Director Hunt Walker was available to answer questions by Town Council. Council Member Kucker stated he is not in favor of spending money out of the RETT fund to fund the Open 07 -05 -11 Minutes Page 7 of 11 Space- Trail/Wildlife Study the rest of the Council voted in favor. Walker also discussed the Summer Mountain Maintenance program which is $15,000. Markey Butler made the motion to approve the changes to the RETT budget. Mayor Bill Boineau seconded the motion. The motion was approved by a vote of 4 in favor to 1 opposed. Voting Aye: Mayor Bill Boineau, John Wilkinson, Markey Butler, and Jason Haber. Voting Nay: Fred Kucker. l Rakowski reviewed the Excise Tax with the Council and there were no changes. Markey Butler made the motion to approve the Excise Tax Fund as presented. John Wilkinson seconded the motion. Voting Aye: None. Voting Nay: None. Item No. 6 RODEO PLACE FINAL PHASE CONSTRUCTION DISCUSSION Housing Manager Joe Coffey is requesting Council direction on the construction of the last three home and four duplex units at Rodeo Place. He went on to explain the Town has three remaining homes; two- two bedrooms and one three bedroom home, and four duplex units remaining to build and sell in the Rodeo Place affordable housing development. The Housing Department began advertising to solicit applicants for these units on April 27, 2011. The application deadline was June 15, 2011 and nine applications were received for seven units. After reviewing and qualifying the applicants, four applicants have qualified for the three homes and three applicants have qualified for the four duplex units. Two of the applicants were not full time Snowmass Village employees. The Housing Department has only offered the Rodeo Place homes to full time Snowmass Village employees. All of these applicants have submitted a pre qualification letter from a lending institution to finance these homes. Financially these applicants appear to be qualified buyers. Several of the applicants have agreed to sign a pre- construction contract and pay a deposit to purchase a home or a duplex unit after a lottery is held. Even though the economic conditions are not the best at this time construction costs will most likely increase as the economy improves and this may be the most affordable time for the Town to build these homes.lf Council were to decide to move ahead with the construction of these homes and some of the current applicants drop out the Housing Department will continue to advertise these units or homes in an effort to sell to a full time Snowmass Village employee. 07 -05 -11 Minutes Page 8 of 11 The Town has subsidized the Rodeo Place Affordable Housing Project from the beginning with a reduced land cost, infrastructure, soft costs and a portion of the hard costs(construction) in an effort to sell these homes at an affordable price. The final phase of Rodeo Place consists of three homes and four duplex units will require an estimated subsidy of $1,059, 000 which is a conservative estimate and saving are anticipated. This number assumes that all of the contingencies and warranty item budgets will be used and in the last phase only approximately 25% of these funds were used. We also have some additional value engineering to consider. The modular pricing is the largest construction expense for this project and the construction team is evaluating modular pricing and the quality of another modular home manufacturer. The main concern of the construction team is the quality of the modular product and a new manufacturer must meet our current product specifications so all the homes are similar in quality and finishes. Robert Kaufmann of Resort Opportunities and Investments, LLC is here today to discuss the preliminary construction schedule and the construction budgets. Attached to this memo you will find pricing information, the preliminary construction schedule and, the estimated construction budgets for the final homes and duplex units submitted from Robert. He noted that Council has several options to consider: 1. Council can direct staff to begin construction on the final phase of the Rodeo Place Housing project. 2. If the Council decides to build these homes the Housing Department could then hold these homes for a period of time in an effort to sell the units to Snowmass Village employees. Please note there will approximately one year to find qualified Snowmass Village buyers for some of the units based on our construction schedule. 3. Another option would be to allow Pitkin County employees to purchase the Rodeo Place homes and they would most likely sell relatively quickly because the Housing Department has had numerous calls from Pitkin County employees about these homes. Pitkin County would be the next priority if we did not have a Snowmass Village employee to purchase the homes. This is the sales process used to sell all the other deed restricted sales properties at this time. 4. The Town may postpone the construction of the final homes and duplex units until the market demand is greater and there are more applicants to insure these units and homes are sold to Snowmass Village employees. 53 07 -05 -11 Minutes Page 9 of 11 Staff recommends option #1 and option #2 for the following reasons. If Council selects option #1 the Rodeo Place project construction will be finished and this will make the entire neighborhood happy. Ongoing construction is a big disruption to the neighborhood and this work needs to be finished. The duplex units are located at the entrance to Rodeo Place and the three homes are located right in the middle of this complex. Delaying this work and re- grouping to begin construction later will add expenses to the construction costs in the future. The Town could hold these homes or units until they sell to a Snowmass Village employee. Therefore option #3 is not recommended at this time. Delaying this construction will likely increase the subsidy required from the Excise Tax Fund to build these homes. Markey Butler made the motion to approve the direction provided by the staff and continue to move forward. Jason Haber seconded the motion. The motion was approved by a vote of 4 in favor to 1 opposed. Voting Aye: Mayor Bill Boineau, Markey Butler, Fred Kucker, and Jason Haber. Voting Nay: John Wilkinson. Council Member Kucker was in favor of receiving contracts from the buyers, the rest of the council was not in agreement with this request. Council and staff had a lengthy discussion regarding extending the deadline for three more weeks to attract more applicants. Item No. 7 SUPPORT FOR C.O.R.E.'S REPORT PRIORITIZING CLEAN ENERGY AND ENERGY CONSERVATION IN COLORADO'S ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY Executive Director of C.O.R.E. Nathan Ratledge spoke to the priortizing Clean Energy and Energy Conservation in Colorado's Economic Development Strategy. He spoke to the Governor's Bottom Up Economic Development Initiative and stated a letter will be sent to Governor Hickenlooper and he would like to list Snowmass Village as a supporter. All Council concurred it was a well written report and they supported it. Item No. 8 MANAGER'S REPORT EOTC Town Manager Russ Forrest noted there is an EOTC Meeting on July 21, 2011 and he encouraged participation and stated there will be a budget discussion in regards to the Free Bus Service. 07 -05 -11 Minutes Page 10 of 11 Tusk Force Town Manager Russ Forrest stated that Thursday, July 7th at the Ice Age Discovery Center there will be a press conference with Governor Hickenlooper. This is not open to the Public and is invitation only to the press. FAB Meeting Town Manager Russ Forrest stated at on Wednesday, July 6th the Financial Advisory Board will be meeting to review the executive summary for the Snowmass Tourism Board relating to financial accountability.

Wild West Show Mayor Boineau noted that Jim Snyder asked if the Town Council would be interested in judging the Pie Eating contest at the Wild West Show this coming weekend. Please let the Mayor know if you are interested. EMU The promoters of the EMU concert are very interested in coming back next year, some suggestions were to lower the price and maybe get some local talent. Mountain Park Naming Committee Council Member Wilkinson stated that he and a representative from the Trails Committee will be on this committee in the near future to name the Droste open space. Forrest noted that the August agendas will be items from the Council Work Plan. Item No. 11 COUNCIL COMMENTS /COMMITTEE REPORTS /CALENDARS Plastic Bags Council Member Haber brought up the issue of regulations for plastic bags in retail shops in Snowmass Village. He noted that all our neighboring communities are attending meetings related to this discussion and considering legislation. He would like to encourage attendance from the Elected Officials in Snowmass Village. The majority of Council would like to have more public input and meetings. None of Council except for Council Member Haber had an interest in attending the regional meeting.
