CoxoD, CIVIC Town Qe[h Town of Snowmoea Village, Box 5010. Snowrnaam Village, C{}81S15' TEN POINTS TO CONSIDER FOR RESTORING THE HOMESTEAD SHUTTLE STOP 1. The Town's website says this about public transportation: "In Snowmass Village, we strive to be car free. One of the things that makes this place great is our free, year round shuttle service that can pretty much take you anywhere you need to go within the village core!" We agree with this statement. In fact, we voted in the November election in favor of extending our local property taxes for transportation funding. 2. The historic Homestead shuttle stop actually predates the Homestead townhomes. It was constructed by the Town and has been in use as a bus stop as far back as the mid- 1970s. 3. The Homestead shuttle stop serves at least four single family homes and a duplex on the west side of Brush Creek Road as well as the 14 unit Homestead townhomes, which have approvals for 55 bedrooms and 56 parking spots. In fact, in 2003 the Homestead received approvals to convert all of their two -car garages to one -car garages, enabling owners there to convert parking stalls to more bedrooms. Perhaps the thinking was that eliminating parking and adding bedrooms was okay because the shuttle stopped right there. 4. The Homestead bus stop is used regularly by full time locals, part time residents and their guests. It is our primary way of getting to and from the Snowmass Ski Area. 5. The Homestead shuttle stop is particularly welcome for those of us on the west side of Brush Creek Road. We don't have a side walk on our side of the road. 6. We recently discovered that our shuttle stop had been eliminated. This was done without notice or an opportunity to be heard. Nobody asked us for our input or suggestions. 7. We don't understand the Town's decision to eliminate our shuttle stop. When we made inquiries to the Transportation Department, we were told there were safety concerns, because the stop isn't wide enough for shuttle buses, even though there is a 100 foot wide dedicated public right of way and a 20 foot wide dedicated pedestrian path in that area. David Peckler, the Director of transportation, also acknowledged that there never has been an accident at our shuttle stop. 8. If indeed safety concerns factored into this decision, we think adding some street signage would solve that problem. Presently there are no shuttle stop, pedestrian crosswalk or other cautionary signs, except for the curve downhill from us which is posted in both directions with a speed limit of 20 mph. Also, we note that all Snowmass shuttle buses have a big sign on their backs that says 'Frequent Stops." 9. Using the Sinclair Road /Brush Creek intersection bus stop isn't practical. The bike path on the east side of Brush Creek Road is steep and icy and snowpacked most of the winter season, making for treacherous walking in ski boots. It also forces those of us living on the west side of the road to cross Brush Creek Road three times each time we use the shuttle. Most people aren't going to hassle with the hike uphill to Sinclair Road; instead, they'll just get in their cars and drive, adding more cars to the road and creating their own safety issues turning into and off of the road. 10. Based on the forgoing, we request that the Town Council direct staff to restore the Homestead shuttle stop. We also suggest that Town Council direct staff to work with shuttle service users to address whatever concerns the Transportation Department has, so that we can truly strive to be car free by using the shuttle service to take us where we need to go. Thank you for your consideration.

I would like to mention a few of our 2010 highlights. The EAC helped initiate and had the town complete its first ever Carbon Footprint Analysis. This important report gives us a scientific baseline in which to make improvements and reach our goals. The total cost analysis was $7,000 and the funds came from REOP. The Town also completed professional Energy Efficiency Audits of the town owned buildings. Important financial and environmental changes are being implemented based on those findings. A lot of immediate improvements have been made to employee units ...like new insulation, windows, laundry room facilities, caulking, etc. It didn't cost the Town anything, because we used the Holy Cross Community Fund money to pay for the audits done by SGM. The Town received approximately $80,000 in both local and federal grant money for sustainability initiatives. We'd like to take a few minutes at the beginning of this New Year to officially recognize a few of the "Green Stars" here in Town; the ones who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in their respective departments. We thought the first Council meeting of the year was an appropriate time to acknowledge these individual's achievements throughout 2010. We thank them for their continued efforts in realizing cost savings and a positive impact to our environment. t av� I T 0 "Lc AUL'Us -a diver A&9�ijs Joe Coffev and the Housing Department Team j,/ In 2010, Joe Coffey and the entire Housing Department Team showed their commitment to cost savings and to the environment. In addition to all rental units receiving extra attention to reduce air filtration costs, 6 new front loading laundry washers were installed in a communal laundry room that will reduce that room's water usage by almost 50 The Housing Department received a $450 rebate for their smart purchase. N Next month, a new 96% efficient boiler will be installed in the Mountain View Housing Office with two roof mounted solar panels to assist the new boiler with producing hot water. In addition, the entire building will be converted over to hot water heat. The solar panels and energy efficient boiler will significantly reduce our gas and electric usage. The Housing Department received a $7,500 Green Key Grant from CORE to support the installation of the new boiler and solar panels. Another Green Star goes to Greg Fitzpatrick, Transportation Department This fall, Greg, Facilities Maintenance Specialist for our Transportation Department took the initiative to apply for and receive a Federal grant for the purposes of upgrading energy efficiency to the Parcel C Building. His grant application awarded almost $75,000 to TOSV for the installation of zipper doors on the building (to prevent heat escape) and for the conversion of all halogen lamps to LED lights. The Town of Snowmass Village was the only locale in the entire state of Colorado to receive this grant money. Nick Reitter, Facilities Maintenance Supervisor, Public Works also gets a Green Star. Aside from Nick's day -to -day facility maintenance duties, he has taken great care to ensure his decisions were fiscally responsible as well as environmentally responsible. Nick: 1.) Oversaw energy audits of all Town facilities 2.) Re- engineered the Rec Center's solar system to provide more heating to appropriate locations and reduce gas consumption 3. Identified and implemented the control sequence and programming for Parcel C heating equipment and associated components .ti d J 2J f7J2 !L-e X—L Lt -DV C- C ,)"(CU f ia� 4.) Through the Energy Tracker, verified increased efficiency in Town buildings 5.) Uses 4 separate Building Automation Systems to track and adjust settings to maintain or improve mechanical and HVAC systems in Town buildings 6.) When possible, purchases maintenance, repair and cleaning supplies that are green certified. I am officially submitting this to the Public Record and each individual named will be receiving a letter from the EAC to include in their personnel file. We look forward to recognizing "Green Stars" throughout the year. Thank you and I wish you all a happy New Year.
