NOTE: NO COMPLIANCE DATE el TOWN COUNCIL COMMUNIQUE Meeting Date: July 16, 2001 Agenda Item: Owl Creek Trailhead Parking Presented By: Hunt Walker Core Issues: • Only available parking area is on Parcel F, Lot 3, zoned Open Space. • Demand exists for Owl Creek trailhead parking. General Info: Staff investigated other possible sites adjacent to Owl Creek Road between the trailhead and Pinecrest Drive (the entry road to The Pines). After surveying the Owl Creek Road ROW, staff found there was not any available land within the ROW to construct a parking area. The only available land for the parking area close to the road is still on Parcel F, Lot 3, zoned Open Space (see the attached survey). Although it is still on the Open Space parcel, it is in the North West corner of the lot, and closer to the road then the old parking area. The approximate location of the proposed parking area is staked in the field if the Council wants to visit the site before Monday's meeting. Since March, staff has received phone calls from trail users complaining about the lack of parking near the Owl Creek Trailhead. Also on March 1, 2001 the Mayor received an email from The Pines Homeowners Association (see attached) explaining that the closure of the parking lot has caused people to start parking in The Pines to access the trails. Council Options: 1. Approve the proposed parking area. 2. Reconsider the old parking area. 3. Recommend the Two Creeks Parking lot as the only alternative. Staff Staff recommends Option #1 with the condition that the parking area Recommendation: be closed during the Elk migration periods. From: TOC36TOK @aol.com [mailto:TOC36TOK @ aol.com] Sent: Thursday, March 01, 2001 9:55 AM To: mayor @tosv.com Subject: Parkimg area off Owl Creek Road Michael: Last winter season a parking area was plowed and maintained south of Owl Creek Road and just to the east of the Snowmass Maintenance Center. It was located at the intersection of the Owl Creek, Terminator and Tom Blake Trails. I presume that this area was plowed by the TOSV. The area has not been plowed this year. As a result, hikers, snowshoers, and XC skiers wishing to access those trails other than from the trailheads at West Buttermilk Road or the Snowmass Golf Shop have been parking in the Pines. I have noticed cars parked on Pine Crest Drive, Streamside Court and in the loop by our recycling shed, all of which are convenient to where the Owl Creek Trail crosses Pine Crest Drive. Cars are also parking further up Spruce Ridge Lane in order to access Terminator and the Tom Blake Trail via the private ski trail which intersects the road at that point. I have also seen cars parked on the shoulder of Owl Creek Road east of the Snowmass Maintenance Center. I believe that the TOSV has an ordinance prohibiting parking on local roads and/or shoulders. I assume this is to ensure passage for fire and emergency vehicles. We already have a significant problem with road obstruction in the Pines because of the numerous home sites under construction. Since the construction workers really have no alternative but to park on the street, I am not advocating a ticketing blitz. I simply would like to ask why that parking area off Owl Creek Road was not plowed this year and to request that the TOSV consider plowing and reopening it for the duration of the season.

Jul 16, 2001 A enda ltem: Aquatic Center/Community Pool Presented By: Gary Suiter, Town Manager Core Issues: • Site • Design • Cost • Timing General Info: There are two sections to this report. The first provides you with floor plans and costs of several facilities designed by Vic Davies, with whom I've had several conversations. He designed the Whistler facility (attached) and is now doing Aspens new facility. Vic states that the conversion from Canadian to U.S. money is dollar-for-dollar. These estimates for a stand-alone facility are consistent with my first report. Part Two is an analysis-prepared by Gary Ross showing tasks and timelines for the Community Pool. Gary has another commitment and could not attend the meeting today. This is self-explanatory and I ask for your feedback. Finally, I checked with several consultants on the time and cost of a feasibility study for the Aquatic Center. Findings varied depending upon level of public involvement and sophistication of data collected. Here's what I found: FEASIBILITY STUDY COST = $20,000 - $50,000 TIMING — ONE TO FIVE MONTHS Council ❑ Pursue Community Pool track, per Gary Ross' timeline. Options: ❑ Commission Feasibility Study for Aquatic Center. ❑ Pursue both on a parallel course. Staff Staff recommends the parallel course. The voters approved a Recommends: Community Pool at the Community Park. We need to proceed with that commitment. Meanwhile, we need to become better educated on the growing trend of Aquatic Centers, which is consistent with our goal of being the leading multi-season, family-oriented mountain resort community. $20,000 is a small investment, given the importance of such an amenitv to our future. - As'W- M(�a)7acdi.n —EKCLUDIIV L �— m � 0 4 o- b e ro m a Existing Parking Area a Coavcrsatren pit stvlc swirlpoo, dt t ;row spectator bleachers(120 caps ily) Forrhily hanging ' g 25m. 4 Lane Pool W no,,clt i SA 2.jmL wide lanes _ •';S data –.—• _ 1rn.diwTg• . •a8 --- St 1 ace N waterslide l b' [at ding strip Pool QZero d fF ❑ �.

Assuming that you are proceeding on with the previous plan to construct a relatively straight-forward, community pool project as was previously presented, this step would involve re-examining the program plan and making any minor adjustments desired. All project components would be reconfirmed. TIME ALLOCATED: One to three weeks - Completion by August 6 assuming a July 16 start. TASK 2: SELECT SITE The November election materials showed the facility located on a section of land adjacent to the Rodeo Lot but not currently under town ownership. Acquire this land or decide to site the facility on land already owned by the Town. TIME ALLOCATED: Four weeks and may occur concurrently with task 1. Estimated completion August 13. TASK 3: LAND USE PROCESS Re-zoning or a PUD amendment will be required. TIME ALLOCATED: 13 Weeks - Assuming expediting by the Town, estimated completion November 12. 13 p _ ° THE ROSS PARTNERSHIP, P.C.

TIME ALLOCATED: With a CM/GC approach, foundation and pool shell documents could be completed within 8 to 10 weeks with the remaining documents completed 4 to 6 weeks later. 3 weeks to bid and select subcontractors would be added to this period. Assuming that the drawings could be worked on concurrently with the project going though the approval process the foundation work could conceivably begin on November 12. If a non-fast track bidding and construction approach was to be utilized or if the design work could not occur simultaneously with the approval process then the exact completion date of the drawings and specification is not critical since it would be unlikely that any construction would occur until 2002. With this approach the drawings should be completed by February of 2002 to allow for bidding and a construction start in late March or early April of 2002. TASK 5: CONSTRUCT FACILITY Time Allocated: If the fast-track process was used, we would anticipate that the contractor would complete only the shell related to pool construction and then shut that portion of the work down for the winter. The building foundations would also be completed and building construction could continue on through the winter. In late Spring, 2002, the work would resume on the pool and sitework and the entire project could be complete in June If the fast-track process was not used and construction did not begin until April of 2002, the project could possibly be complete by late August although that is a very aggressive schedule.

With general direction from Council, staff will then research the issue and provide a more complete report at a future meeting. Possible ballot issues are as follows: • Home Rule Charter Amendments —These amendments might include changes to the election code dates, the provision for the Financial Advisory Board, inconsistencies in the preamble, and elimination of Tabor conflicts. • RETT extension and change of use —This issue would propose to extend the one-percent (1%) Real Estate Transfer Tax beyond the 2006 expiration date. The change of use might include eligibility for Transit Operations, including the RTA, Employee Housing or other uses. • Aquatic Center — This would involve additional funding for expansion of the Community Pool to a family oriented Aquatic Center. Location would need to be determined prior to the election. • Marketing Tax— Council has indicated a preference to proceed with this concept. We should define some parameters such as tax rate, limitations on use and administrative strategy. • Other ideas — If Council has other ideas as to possible ballot questions, we should discuss them at this time. Council Options: Have an informal discussion and provide staff direction. Staff Recommendation: Review, discuss and provide as specific guidance as possible, so as tooptimize staff resources. � SNOWMASS VILLAGE TOWN COUNCIL REGULAR MEETING MINUTES JUNE 25, 2001 Mayor T.

Item No. 3: JOINT DISCUSSION WITH PITKIN BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS REGARDING ANNEXATION Pitkin County Commissioners Jack Hatfield, Dorothea Farris and Shelly Roy Harper requested discussion with Council concerning potential Town annexations of land within Pitkin County and requested that Council discuss any future requests for annexations with the Board of County Commissioners before entertaining any petitions for annexation. Hatfield stated that the Board's concern elevated when the Town had a recent discussion with a Wildcat Ranch owner's representative. He explained that the landowner currently has pending unresolved road issues with Pitkin County. The landowner's representative, David Myler, stated that he is scheduled to meet with the BOCC at their regular meeting scheduled for Wednesday, June 27, 2001.

Michael Manchester STAFF PRESENT: Gary Suiter, Town Manager; Hunt Walker, Public Works Director; Craig Thompson, Community Development Director; Steve Connor, Town Attorney; Chris Conrad, Planning Director; Larry Green, Wildlife Specialist; Trudi Worline, Town Clerk PUBLIC PRESENT: Dan Baharav, Guy DeCarlo, John Rex, Madeleine Osberger, Doug Mackenzie, Joe Windsor, Peggy Russell, Victor Gerdin and other members of the public interested in Agenda items for this Meeting. Item No. 2: FAMILY AQUATIC CENTER As directed previously by Council, the Town Manager provided several concepts of swimming pools as well as costs, which had been constructed at various municipalities. He explained that the Town has $400,000 in reserve to be used toward the design and construction of a community pool. Council discussed the need to hire a consultant and the size and type of pool to meet the needs of the Town. After further discussion Council requested that staff provide information and cost estimates at the July 16, 2001 Council Meeting for a smaller community pool that would be appropriate for Snowmass Village. Council also requested that staff contact the Horse Ranch Homeowners Association regarding use of their land as a location for a pool and determine the tasks necessary to complete construction of a pool. Council also requested that staff provide Mercatoris with a schematic of the pool at Whistler, which was visited by Council during a tour of resort areas. WNW N t �t 07-09-01 tc Page 2 Item No. 3: EXCISE TAX/DUPLEX UNITS - DISCUSSION Peggy Russell, co-owner of Lot 3, Ridge Run Unit I, requested that Council initiate a proposal to place a question on the November, 2001 election ballot, requesting voter approval to amend the Excise Tax provisions to include duplex units. The Planning Director explained that the current language of the Excise Tax, approved by the voters at the November 2, 1999 Snowmass Village Special Election, allows detached single-family residences the opportunity to acquire limited, additional floor area for their properties. The Excise Tax language does not apply to duplex units.

Connor, Town Attorney Subject: ORDINANCE No. 15, SERIES OF 2001 AN ORDINANCE AMENDING AND RESTATING SECTION 2- 45 OF THE MUNICIPAL CODE CONCERNING EXECUTIVE SESSIONS Overview: No revisions have been made to the Ordinance since first reading. HB 01-1359 amended the Open Meetings Law by changing the manner in which executive sessions can be convened and becomes effective on August 8, 2001. After reviewing the amendments to the Open Meetings Law and the provisions of the Municipal Code, I determined that the Municipal Code provisions should be amended and restated. Ordinance 01-15 amends the Municipal Code so that it is not in conflict with the Open Meetings Law. Upon reviewing the Ordinance you will see that the procedure to convene an executive session now requires an announcement of the topic of the executive session in reasonable detail and the citation of the section of the Open Meetings Law and the Municipal Code that authorize the executive session. Once convened, a record of the executive session must be maintained. HB 01-1359 allows an electronic record or written minutes. For simplicity, I have chosen to require an electronic record in the Ordinance as the procedural requirements for written minutes are cumbersome. The record must be maintained for 90 days and is subject to review by a Court upon application by an interested party. At the end of the 90 day period, the record will be destroyed. I have chosen the Town Attorney to be the custodian of the record of executive sessions to insure the confidentiality of the record. Recommendation: Adopt the Ordinance on second reading. q9 TOWN OF SNOWMASS VILLAGE TOWN COUNCIL ORDINANCE No. 15 SERIES OF 2001 AN ORDINANCE AMENDING AND RESTATING SECTION 2-45 OF THE MUNICIPAL CODE CONCERNING EXECUTIVE SESSIONS.

We would like to meet with you sometime during the next two weeks. Please let me know what date and time works best for you. FIREWORKS COMPLAINTS Following the Fourth of July celebration, we have received about seven complaints relating to fireworks. One was in protest to the July 3`° display. That will be handled through the TUP process. The others were in response to the private aerial displays in the Crossings. I copied to Council a letter from John Mele, Fire Marshal, regarding the use of illegal fireworks within the Town. These aerial fireworks are becoming fairly sophisticated and the Fire Department is concerned about the safety of people and structures. The complaints ranged from the fireworks going too late into the night (about 11:30 p.m.), setting a poor example for children, frightening dogs, potential for brush fires, and the possibility for human injury and/or structure damage. Art Smythe is responding with a letter to residents of the Crossings neighborhood and I am requesting that the Police and Fire Departments have more of a presence on evenings of potential celebration. We hope to increase public awareness with this effort. VILLAGE LEADERSHIP FORUM A reminder that the next VLF Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July 26th.

WHEREAS, the Snowmass Village Town Council adopted Ordinance No. 25, Series of 1984, amending the Land Use Code and establishing regulations for signage within the community; and WHEREAS, the Snowmass Village Town Council adopted Ordinance No. 07, Series of 2000, amending the provisions of Article IV of Land Use Code including the regulations for signage within the community; and WHEREAS, the Town Council directed the Planning Staff in the spring of 2001 to address the signage needs and enforcement provisions at the Snowmass Village Mall as they relate to the Comprehensive Sign Plans previously approved; and WHEREAS, the Silvertree Hotel, the Timbermill Building, Gateway Properties, Shell Properties, and the Snowmass Real Estate Company, are all accessible from the Snowmass Village Mall; and WHEREAS, Section 16A-4-550 of the Land Use Code establishes a provision for a Comprehensive Sign Plan, the intent of which is to provide flexibility from the adopted sign standards when said Plan receives special review by the Town; and WHEREAS, recommended amendments to Chapter 16A contained in this Resolution are being processed under the provisions of Section 16A-5-210 of Chapter of the Snowmass Village Municipal Code (the "Municipal Code"); and WHEREAS, the Planning Commission reviewed the amendments and made their recommendations to the Town Council during its meetings occurring on April 18, 2001, May 2, 2001, May 16, 2001, June 6, 2001, June 20, 2001, and July 11, 2001; and WHEREAS, the Planning Commission finds the following: 1. The previous approvals of five Comprehensive Sign Plan over the past 12 years have presented problems in that the sign standards are similar but at the same time different for each of the mall owners at the Mall and has made enforcement in a fair and equitable fashion difficult. 2. The Snowmass Village Mall has presented special circumstances which deserve flexibility from the standards prescribed in Chapter 16.0 of the Land Use Code and that said flexibility is in the best interest of the community. PC Reso.01-18 Page 2 3. The new replacement Comprehensive Sign Plan for the Snowmass Village Mall has been initiated by the Town, following the provisions in the Land Use Code, as a result of past complaints concerning the enforcement of sign restrictions and provisions from the previously separate Comprehensive Sign Plans for the individual ownership areas at the Mall. 4. The new Comprehensive Sign Plan for the entire Village Mall is consistent with a majority of the signage provisions from the previous Comprehensive Sign Plans, but provides a uniform set of sign standards for the entire Village Mall plus additional restrictions for temporary signage. 5. The new Comprehensive Sign Plan for the entire Village Mall is in conformance with the general interest of the Town sign regulations. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Planning Commission of the Town of Snowmass Village, Colorado, that: Section One: Action.
