I have attached two photos of the Interlude courtyard taken April 2nd, 2010 for your review. I believe these photos clearly show the existing danger in this area. In our last discussion of this issue I had mentioned that one of our Housekeepers had fallen in this area breaking her arm in 2 places. This area is not safe for employees performing their duties, as well as guests and Owners moving between their vehicles and their residences. The problem is far greater when trying to walk on the ice in your ski boots. The way the REOP fees currently read, it would cost approximately $148,800 in fees to allow our association to snowmelt this area. We have been quoted approximately $153,000 to install the snowmelt. This massive financial burden makes this safety improvement impossible to complete. I am in full support of the exemption of REOP fees to all commercial /lodge properties in Snowmass Village in areas where public safety is affected. I ask you to strongly consider this at tonight's meeting. You are more than welcome to conduct a site visit at the Interlude as we still have 6 inches of ice even after the warm temperatures. The town still owns this portion of the courtyard, but has been in the process for several years) of trying to deed this to the Interlude. There has been acknowledgement that work needs to be done to this area before a transfer will be accepted and completed. Thank you for your time, Jami Downs Laurelwood /Interlude /Sonnenblick General Manager P.O.
