NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING Pursuant to Section 16A-1-55 of the Town of Snowmass Village Land Use and Development Code, a Pre-Sketch Plan application has been filed by the Aspen Skiing Company and Intrawest Corporation concerning the "Base Village" land area located at the base of Fanny Hill. Said area is generally bounded by the Fanny Hill base lift, Snowmelt Road, Brush Creek Road, Assay Hill and Wood Road. The Pre-Sketch Plan continuation meeting will occur on October 8, 2001 12:30 p.m. in the Town Council Chambers, 0016 Kearns Road, Snowmass Center, Snowmass Village, Colorado. The Pre-Sketch Plan discussions will not involve any specific site planning, development issues or proposals for this area; however, certain presentations or facilitated workshops may include discussion that involves community economic, planning, policy or program matters that could include the subject area. For this reason, the Pre-Sketch process is being applied to enable informal discussion including the Town Council and Planning Commission members during the meeting that is non-binding with respect to any future development proposal.

General Info: The Housing Department has always strived to rent well maintained apartments with affordable rents to Village employees. The philosophy of the Housing Department is to only increase the rents to cover the operating expenses. The Housing Department is an enterprise fund,which means it is a self- supporting business that does not require money from outside sources. The rents, and some other miscellaneous income,pay for all the operating expenses. The 2002 proposed Housing budget requires a rental rate increase of 1.49%to 2.97%to balance the budgets. Each year some of the operating expenses increase and these increases are covered with rental rate increases. I have always strived to keep the rental rate increases to a minimal amount. The proposed rental rate increase equals a$10.00 to$15.00 per month increase for studios, a$15.00 to$20.00 per month increase for one bedroom units,a$20.00 to$30.00 per month increase for two bedroom units and a$30.00 per month increase for the three bedroom units. I have attached the total fund summary,rent structure,and the revenue and expenditure graphs for each budget. The Denver-Boulder C.P.I. for 2001 is projected to be 3.7% and all of the Housing Departments proposed rental rate increases are below 3%. The current lease term runs from November 01 to October 31 of each year. If all leases ended on December 31 this would allow more time for budget preparation and the Housing budget would match the Town's physical year. I would like to make the 2001-2002 Lease term 14 months in length. The new lease will start on November 01,2001 and end on December 31,2002. The following lease terms would then begin on January 01 and end on December 31 of each year. Council Options: * Approve proposed 2002 rental rate increases. * Deny proposed 2002 rental rate increases. * Approve new lease term. * Deny new lease term. Staff Recommendation: * Approve the 2002 proposed rental rate increases,as they are necessary to cover our expenses and to continue to provide quality employee housing. * Approve the new lease term -300 HOUSING FUND Total Fund Summary 2001 2001 2aoz 1001 6 x s x Total IneanelAAll Categories: lmeor wear ZOUAr" 70Qiffi�a zKbh 7odou 22$$®4 rid® then® Rents $ 936.206 $ 968.193 $ 983,360 $ 986,020 $ 2,660 0.27% $ 1,012,580 $ 26.560 2.69% Other Revenue $ 93,956 $ 80.856 $ 88.670 $ 84,250 $ (4,420) -4.989;, $ 85.075 $ 825 0- Total $ 1,030,162 $ 1,049,069 $ 1,074030 $ 1,070,270 $ (1,780) -0.16% $ 1,097,655 $ 27,385 2.56% toot 1001 1002 1001 f x s x aol Total Expenses/All Categories: 1212AIM 201Mas aQLSM" 2R18eaa0 Ya4m n4® ffi>� Y,:= ]oreseu Personnel Services $ 217,208 $ 224,985 $ 264.420 $ 259,439 $ 4,981 1.88% $ 273,092 $ (13,653) .5.26% Purchased Services $ 92,940 $ 121,149 $ 113.828 $ 120,103 $ (6.275) .5.51% $ 145,166 $ (25,061) 20.87% Operating&Maintenance $ 46,030 S 58.120 S 65,004 $ 63,507 $ 1,497 2.30% $ 60.839 $ 2,668 4.20% Donations $ $ $ $ $ - 0.00% $ $ 0.00% Capital Outlay $ 84,185 $ 13,182 $ 24,832 $ 22,757 $ 2,075 0.40 . $ 5,525 $ 17,232 0,00% Total $ 440,363 $ 417,436 $ 468,084 $ 465.806 $ 2278 0.49% $ 484,620 $ (18,814) -4.04% Debt Service Requirement $549,206 $552,731 $549,781 $549,781 $ 0.00% $551,131 $ (1,350) .0.25% Grand Total $ 989,569 $ 970,167 $ 1.017,865 $ 1,015,587 $ 2,278 0.22% $ 1,035,751 $ (20.164) .1.99% 2001 2001 2002 2002 6 x s x NET INCOMEBF ENSE+I. tsrear 7n4ddel 2a418e4•r4 Ihd•® Ihd•® 3la2EOmm rimon nom Net Income/Upense +/. $ 40,593 $ 78,882 $ 54.165 $ 54.683 $ 518 0.96% $ 61,904 $ 7,221 13.21% Capital Reserve Contribution ($35.870) ($34,348) ($50,103) ($45,953) $ 4.150 5.28% ($57,712) S (11,759) 25.59% Final Met +/- $ 4.723 $ 44.534 $ 4.062 $ &730 $ 4,668 114.92% $ 4,192 $ (4.538) -51.98% MOUSING RENT STRUMPLE 2001 - 2006 2001 2001 2001 2002 2002 2002 NP MONTHLY ANNUAL % MONTSLY ANNUAL % PROJECTARIIT SME UNITS RENTS D400ME nom.

Public Hearing and First Reading — Ordinance No. 14, Series of 2001, an ordinance concerning a Minor PUD application to amend The Gracie's Cabin Planned Unit Development for Lot 2, Gracie's Cabin Subdivision. Presented y: Chris Conrad, Planning Director ore issues: If this application concerned any outbuilding besides Gracie's Cabin or other building of"historical" interest to the community, the staff recommendation would not be favorable and would at least require that the floor area should be either part of the 5,500 sq. ft. currently permitted or that the Excise Tax provisions be applied. The building location would then have been reviewed as a variance request by the Planning Commission. Although Gracie's Cabin may be of some historical interest, the core issue is whether there is sufficient community benefit to amend the PUD to preserve it by allowing it's placement outside the platted building envelope and to grant additional floor area for the lot. enera Into: The Gracie's Cabin PUD was approved in 1997 creating a two (2) lot subdivision at the location of the historic Gracie's Cabin in the East Village area. The existing cabin is actually located within the platted building envelope of Lot 2. Stephen D. and Lisa S. Lebovitz, the current owners of Lot 2, would like to preserve the original 388.5 square foot portion of the existing building by relocating it to an area outside the envelope adjacent to the ski slope. They prefer that the square footage not count as part of the current 5,500 square foot maximum floor area limit for the lot and also need to amend the zoning parameters regarding permitted uses, maximum allowed accessory building height and to permit the structure to be located outside the platted building envelope (See highlighted text in Section One of ordinance). The applicants have offered to relocate and rebuild the structure at their expense and to make it available as a daytime meeting area for not-for-profit, and educational groups. The agreement limits when the cabin may be used to a maximum of twelve (12) days per year. A toilet and sink will be within the structure and will only be accessible on those twelve (12) occasions or when being used by the Applicants. Please read the enclosed information for more detail.

Minimum building setback: Established by building Envelope or Ordinance No. _, Series of 2001 5. Minimum lot area: 60,287 sf Section Two: Recommendations of approval. The Planning Commission recommends that the Town Council approval be subject to the following considerations: 1. This approval is based upon the Applicants representation that reasonable accommodation will be made to allow not-for-profit,and educational groups not exceeding thirty (30) people in number to utilize Gracie's Cabin for daytime visits and meetings. Accordingly, the Town Council has granted approval for the placement of this above grade structure outside the platted building envelope and to permit the calculable floor area of the cabin to be excluded from being part of the 5,500 square foot floor area limit originally established for the Lot. Failure by the Applicant, heirs, successors or assigns to comply with the terms and conditions of the Use Agreement,attached hereto as Exhibit"B" and incorporated herein by reference, including failure to demonstrate that reasonable efforts were made to allow the use of Gracie's Cabin by said groups, should be cause for reconsideration of the approval granted by the Town Council. 2. Should the Town receive complaints that access is unreasonably being denied to qualifying groups, the complaints should be promptly forwarded by the Town to the owner of Lot 2 requesting a written response within thirty (30) days of receipt. The Town Manager may then determine whether the matter should be referred to the Town Council for determination as to whether reconsideration of the approval granted should occur. 3. If it is determined that the facility is not being reasonably made available for use 6000(0 .� PC Reso.011-21 Page 4 by qualifying groups or that the terms and conditions of the Use Agreement have not been satisfied,the Applicant may be required by the Town Council to remove Gracie's Cabin from the Lot. If floor area is available or may be purchased under the Town's Excise Tax provisions, the cabin would then only need to be relocated to within the platted building envelope. 4. A non-exclusive access easement should be provided from the ski slope to the cabin along the old cabin road alignment to enable people to access the cabin area without trespassing. 5. Some arrangements should be made to ensure that the building will be properly maintained. A bear proof trash container should also be located on the deck so that people visiting the cabin can properly dispose of trash. 6. The final Use Agreement should be amended to incorporate the above recommendations prior to final Town Council approval. 7. The owner may submit a proposal for one (1) sign to the Planning Director for approval. Said sign may describe the historical nature of Gracies Cabin and request that visitors be respectful of the property. Section Three: Severabllity. If any provision of this Resolution or application hereof to any person or circumstance is held invalid, the invalidity shall not affect any other provision or application of this Resolution, which can be given effect without the invalid provision or application, and, to this end, the provisions of this Resolution are severable.

TOWN OF SNOWMASS VILLAGE ATTEST: T. Michael Manchester, Mayor Trudi Worline, Town Clerk TOWN COUNCIL COMMUNIQUE Meeting Date: October 8, 2001 Agenda Item: RESOLUTION NO. 33, SERIES OF 2001, AUTHORIZING THE DISSOLUTION OF THE ROARING FORK RAILROAD HOLDING AUTHORITY AND AUTHORIZING THE ASSIGNMENT OF ALL OF THE HOLDING AUTHORITY'S ASSETS, RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES TO THE ROARING FOR TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY Presented By: Gary Suiter, Town Manager Core Issues: • Dissolution of RFRHA • Transfer of Assets to RTA • Cost Savings General Info: This resolution authorizes the dissolution of the RFRHA and assigns all of its assets, rights and responsibilities to Roaring Fork Transportation Authority (RFTA). This will result in elimination of duplication of administrative activities and greater effectiveness in delivering services Council Options: Approve, Modify or Deny Staff Recommendation: Approval ROARI O FORK TRANSPORTATION AUiNOR17Y ConnoctlnY our raYlon rlth tren�X An!Irdb To: Mayor and Snowmass Village Council Members From: Alice Hubbard Re: Resolution to approve dissolution of RFRHA IGA and transfer of all assets/obligations Date: September 26, 2001 As a step in merging the Roaring Fork Railroad Holding Authority and the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority* we need to have all RFRHA member governments pass a resolution approving the dissolution of the original RFRHA Intergovernmental Agreement, and the transfer of all RFRHA assets and obligations to the transportation authority. You may recall that the original RTA IGA kept RFRHA as a separate organization with funding for RFRHA responsibilities to be provided by the RTA. Early this year it became apparent to the boards of both organizations that merging RFRHA with the RTA would result in the elimination of duplication of administrative activities, cost savings to the member governments, and greater effectiveness in delivering services and executing responsibilities. The boards of both entities unanimously approved an amendment to the original RTA IGA to allow for this merger earlier this year. A comprehensive list of all RFRHA assets and obligations then has been developed in the intervening months (Exhibit A of Appendix A of RTA Resolution 2001-6), and approved by attorneys and transportation staff of RFRHA member governments. We have been waiting for RFRHA's conservation easement to be extinguished and replaced by a conservation covenant before approaching each RFRHA member government to give the approval needed to dissolve the RFRHA IGA and transfer all responsibilities and assets. Because extinguishment of the conservation easement is taking longer than expected we are asking member governments to help move the issue forward by passing a resolution dissolving the RFRHA IGA that would go into effect once the conservation easement has been extinguished. Thank you for your assistance with this matter and your overall support of regional transit and trail efforts. *To avoid any confusion(or in an effort to confuse you even more),please note that the Rural Transportation Authority(RTA)passed by voters last November is increasingly being referred to as the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority,or RFTA,the organization's official name. By January 2002 the"old"RFTA—the transit agency—should also be officially merged with the new authority, and we will be down to just one transit acronym in the Roaring Fork Valley. 07f so aw Carbondale•Basalt•Aspen•Snowmaslage•Glenwood Springs•Pitkin County•Eagle County Carbondale Office: PO Box 1270.Carbondale,CO 81623 • Tel:970-963-9012 Fax:970-704-9284 TOWN OF SNOWMASS VILAGE TOWN COUNCIL RESOLUTION NO. 33 SERIES OF 2001 AUTHORIZING THE DISSOLUTION OF THE ROARING FORK RAILROAD HOLDING AUTHORITY AND AUTHORIZING THE ASSIGNMENT OF ALL OF THE HOLDING AUTHORITY'S ASSETS,RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES TO THE ROARING FORK TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY WHEREAS, pursuant to title 29, article 1, part 2, Colorado Revised Statutes, as amended, and article XIV,section 18 of the Colorado Constitution,governments may contract with one another to provide any function, service or facility lawfully authorized to each of the contracting units and any such contract mayprovide for the joint exercise of the function,service or facility,including the establishment of a separate legal entity to do so; and WHEREAS,Pitkin County,Eagle County,Garfield County,the City of Glenwood Springs, the City of Aspen,the Town of Carbondale,the Town of Basalt,and the Town of Snowmass Village did enter into an Intergovernmental Agreement dated December 31, 1994,to create the Roaring Fork Railroad Holding Authority("RFRHA"); and WHEREAS, on June 26, 1997, Pitkin County, Eagle County, Garfield County, the City of Glenwood Springs,the City of Aspen,the Town of Carbondale,the Town of Basalt,and the Town of Snowmass Village ("Cooperating Governments") entered into the First Amended and Restated Intergovernmental Agreement Concerning the Purchase and Public Ownership of the Aspen Branch of the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad Right-of-Way("RFRHA IGA"); and WHEREAS, among the purposes for which RFRHA was formed was to purchase, and thereatler hold title to,manage and develop a comprehensive plan("Comprehensive Plan") for the use of the Aspen Branch of the Denver and Rio Grande Western railroad corridor between Glenwood Springs and Woody Creek, Colorado (the"Property") for the benefit of the general public; and WHEREAS,RFRHA completed the purchase of the Property on June 30, 1997 and adopted the Comprehensive Plan on April 30, 2000; and WHEREAS, on September 12, 2000, the Cooperating Governments, entered into an Intergovernmental Agreement to create the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority("Authority"),a rural transportation authority formed pursuant to title 43,article 4,part 6,Colorado Revised Statutes; and go 1 WHEREAS,at the November 7,2000 general election,the electors within the boundaries of the Cooperating Governments approved the formation of Roaring Fork Transportation Authority; and WHEREAS,the IGA forming the Authority commits the Authority to assume responsibility for,among other things,the completion of Corridor Investment Study/Environmental Impact Study that RFRHA had formerly been responsible for; and WHEREAS,the Authority and RFRHA have determined that the immediate reorganization of RFRHA will result in the elimination of duplication of administrative activities, cost savings to the members of the Authority and the members of RFRHA, and greater effectiveness in delivering services and executing responsibilities, WHEREAS, the RTA IGA was amended on June 25 2001 ("Amended RTA IGA") to authorize, among other things, the merger of RFRHA with the Authority, provided that RFRHA assign all of its assets, rights and privileges to the Authority and the Authority assume all of the obligations and liabilities of RFRHA, that the Authority be responsible for the protection and management of the Property, including the preservation, maintenance, and enhancement of the conservation values described in the Agreement dated January 17, 2001 between RFRHA and the State Board of the Great Outdoors Colorado Trust Fund,that the Authority provide funding for and monitoring of enforcement of the conservation values through a specially created Covenant Enforcement Commission, and that the Authority provide funding for and be responsible for construction and maintenance of regional trails in cooperation with members of the Authority or other persons.

As reviewed and approved during our meeting with Planning&Zoning on 15 Aug.01, we will request that we be allowed to: 1.

Maintain the existing 19 ft. structure height of the original cabin,where 18 ft is the maximum allowed for"accessory structures", as per the platted PUD Land Use Plan. The allowed height at the rear(north)of the cabin, where the slope drops away, would be approximately 25 ft. in height above natural grade. 3. Have the original cabin's existing 388.5 sf. of floor area not counting against the allowed 5500 sf. of floor area, as per the platted PUD Land Use Plan.The floor amount is based on the deck being placed on grade and being non-counting in the floor area I am including 8 sets of 11"x17"reduced drawings with the following information for the suggested Minor PUD Amendment review by the Town Council in June: 1. Gracie's Cabin Relocation Drawings including Cover Sheet,Site Plan,Full Scale Site Plan, Proposed Floor Plan and Building Elevations,Existing Floor Plans and Building Elevations. 2. Additional site information including:Topographic Survey,Land Use Plan,Gracies Cabin Subdivision Plat and East Village PUD Plat with Vicinity Map. 3. Photos of the existing cabin and the original cabin. 4. Request information from the owners on the proposed usage for the cabin. At the 15 Aug. 01 P&Z review the following questions and resulting information were developed. 1. The structure will be maintained as part of the of the Lebovitz Residence.The approval would run with the property ,as long as the conditions are met by the current owner. 2.

The November 2001 issue rates the combined Aspen Mountain/Aspen Highlands/Snowmass No. 1 party town, No. 4 for bumps, No. 5 for off-piste, and No. 7 for steeps in all of North America. The top 10 resorts are determined by a poll of the magazine's editors, contributors, athletes and opinion leaders. These industry leaders use a variety of criteria to make their decision and determine the top resorts. Steeps, off-piste, nightlife, bumps and backcountry all come into play, as does the general "buzz" surrounding each resort. Aspen/Snowmass moved up from No. 10 last year to claim the top spot in the United States and No. 2 overall behind Canada's Whistler/Blackcomb. "At present, Whistler rivals Aspen in the '70s. But Aspen has ambitions of returning to former glory, and it has achieved its highest ranking in several years," said SKIING editor-and-chief Rick Kahl. "We're thrilled to be named number one in the United States by this group of passionate industry experts," said John Norton, chief operating officer, Aspen Skiing Company. "It is great to see a ski magazine recognize that the magic of a place is much more important than the aggregate of its lifts, snowfall and acreage." Aspen/Snowmass is ranked as: No. 1 party town; No. 4 for bumps, with Aspen Mountain's Bell Mountain getting the nod; No. 5 for off-piste, with Aspen Highlands and Highland Bowl getting rave reviews; and No. 7 for steeps, with Aspen Highlands getting mentions for Highland Bowl and the lower mountain steeps. Aspen/Snowmass was followed by Vail/Beaver Creek, Colorado; Alta and Snowbird, Utah; Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Wyoming; Squaw Valley USA, California; Mammoth Mountain, California; Telluride, Colorado; and Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico. Beyond the overall top ten ski areas in North America, SKIING's November"Adventure Guide" ranks resorts for specific adventures: steeps, off-piste, nightlife, bumps, backcountry adventures, field trips and where skiers and boarders can slide together in harmony. For a complete list of all category winners, please go to www.skiingmag.com. Aspen Skiing Company operates the four mountains in the Aspen/Snowmass area - Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk - as well as the award-winning Ski & Snowboard Schools of Aspen. This season Aspen will host five World Cup ski races, ESPN's Winter X Games, the Audi 24 Hours of Aspen endurance ski race, SWATCH Boardercross and Spring Jam.

Graphics and system data courtesy Raytheon Company. The System The Raytheon Company's PRT 2000 transportation system grew out of over a decade of systematic analysis of the problems of contemporary urban transportation, involvement in a variety of transit planning studies, study of characteristics of new systems required to solve these problems, study of how these systems might fail and how to make the design fault tolerant and fail safe, study of over 46 categories of tradeoffs or design choices, development of long lists of design criteria, and engineering analysis of each tradeoff to determine the best choice. The requirement for cost-effectiveness --to so reduce costs and increase service that the system could be built and operated at a profit-was a primary goal. A brief summary of key features is as follows: An exclusive guideway is required to safely attain high average speeds and must be small to minimize cost and obtrusiveness. Because the cost of transit vehicles per unit of capacity (or per place)is independent of vehicle size,the cost of the fleet, regardless of vehicle size,is minimized if the average trip speed is maximized. The average speed is maximized if all intermediate stops are eliminated -possible if all stops are on bypass tracks off the main line and practical if the smallest size vehicles are used. Fortunately, dynamic structural analysis shows that the weight of the guideway is reduced to a much lower value than might be expected if the smallest size vehicles are used, down by a factor of 15 from conventional elevated rail systems. To minimize cost,the vehicles have to be small enough so that they can be used by small parties of people traveling together by choice. The nonstop trip is made possible by use of off-line stations. Ridership is maximized if these stations are closely spaced in a network of interconnected guideways that eliminate the need for passengers to transfer from line to line. Such features require safe,reliable, rapid switching, realized by 1)use of a new in-vehicle switch having no moving track parts,2)automatic control, 3)appropriate switching logic, and 4) electronic communication. A new and comprehensive method of determining the reliability required of all subsystems, which quantified the advantages of redundancy and failure monitoring,gave confidence that a very reliable system could be built if certain design choices were made. hup://faculty.washington.edu/y bs/itrans/PRT/PRT2000_Conoept.html 10/7/01 PRT 2000 Concept Page 2 of 4 PRT 2000 system utilizes an elevated guideway design. Analysis of operating and maintenance costs per passenger-km showed that these costs are minimized if operation is strictly on demand and if empty vehicles are rerouted by a central computer from stations with excess vehicles to stations with shortages. To minimize costs,vehicles must wait at each off-line station for passengers or freight, moving only if travel is required. This is unlike conventional bus and rail transit in which vehicles must move on a schedule independent of fluctuations in passenger demand,this forcing passengers to wait for vehicles. To permit operation at the closest practical headways in all weather conditions,PRT 2000 uses a combination electric motor propulsion and microprocessor control,not available a decade ago in the small size and low weight required. Such features provide high capacity safely and reliably with minimum noise and air pollution. It uses a unique guideway configuration that meets over 30 criteria obtained by analyzing and planning these systems. PRT 2000 is built of available technology,proven during the past two decades in industrial, military and automated transit applications. The steel guideways of PRT 2000 are lightweight. To increase the natural frequency in bending and torsion, they are rigidly bolted to support.posts. Expansion joints are included and stiff steel running surfaces are overlapped and adjusted to provide a smooth ride. Guideway covers aid winter operation,provide electromagnetic shielding,reduce lateral air drag, and permit the color and texture of the external surface to complement the cityscape. The elevated configuration reduces the land devoted to transit to that needed for posts and stations. PRT 2000 is easy to erect, easy to expand, and easy to move. The electric motors and high- pressure tires running on steel rails all but eliminate the air pollution, noise and vibration associated with conventional transport. http://faculty.washington.edul--jbMtrans/PRT/PRT2000_Concept.html 10/7/01 PRT 2000 Concept Page 3 of 4 1.11119419~ftN • �-Isicanu—'I N' hTWeY Me1� Oawew�sM� �IYM F~rIOillp TLS' TYl�typvl MYel" N. r100MY11MN 1, f (011 1ae) PRT 2000 vehicle and guideway design. At each station, a map of the system of lines and station is posted near a ticket machine similar to a bank cash machine. A patron selects a destination on the network, whereupon a display verifies the destination and indicates the fare, which may be paid by cash, a prepaid card, or a credit card. The machine then dispenses a ticket on which the destination is magnetically encoded. The patron takes the ticket to the loading platform and inserts it into a slot in a stanchion in front of the first empty vehicle in a line of usually three or four vehicles, like a sheltered taxi stand. The ticket is read and the destination is transferred to a microprocessor aboard the vehicle. The door then opens, the patron, or a group of two to four patrons traveling together, enter, sit down and the door is closed. This action informs the vehicle microprocessor that the vehicle is ready to go. A wayside computer senses an opening,the vehicle accelerates and merges into the stream of traffic that is by-passing the station, and proceeds nonstop to the planned destination. The result of system optimization for minimum life-cycle cost is a breakthrough. Detailed cost estimates, repeated in successive stages over a period of six years, show that in many reasonable applications,PRT 2000 can be built and operated at far lower cost than existing rail transit modes. The result is also energy minimization --the combination of nonstop travel and lightweight, streamlined vehicles more than doubles energy efficiency. The remarkable result of cost minimization is a humanizing technology. PRT 2000 requires vehicles to wait for people rather than people to wait for vehicles. It provides a short, predictable,nonstop trip on a network of guideways, a seat for everyone, climate control, no transfers, minimum or no wait, 24 hour on-demand service, ease of use,privacy, no crowding, space for luggage, no jerky motion, no objectionable sounds, no smelly fumes, minimum anxiety,maximum safety,minimum land use, and minimum disruption to businesses and the community while the system is installed. PRT requires no turnstiles, which are barriers to the handicapped,and provides mobility for all, including those who are unable to drive. The system can also carry mail, groceries, luggage, household goods, appliances and furniture. The appearance of PRT 2000 is unobtrusive. As compared to other transit modes, little space is needed for guideways. As surface traffic is reduced, existing streets can be partly turned into linear parks and gardens, bringing to the city a balance with nature enticing to all. PRT 2000 does for horizontal development what the http://faculty.washington.edu/-jbs/itrans/PRT/PRT2000 Concept.htmI 10/7/01 PRT 2000 Concept Page 4 of 4 elevator did for vertical development. Study of factors that induce people to ride transit suggest that disappointing ridership on present people movers using conventional transit service concepts bears no relationship to the potential ridership on a PRT 2000 system.
