MEMORANDUM TO: Snowmass Village Town Council FROM: Town Manager DATE: May 21, 2007 SUBJECT: FOLLOW-UP FROM COUNCIL RETREAT 1. PURPOSE AND ACTIONS REQUESTED OF COUNCIL: On April 10`h the Snowmass Village Town Council conducted a one day retreat to: 1) clarify expectations for both Council and staff and 2) to help define several critical goal areas to provide focus in the future. The purpose of this discussion is to review the "outcomes" from the retreat and ensure that the Town Council agrees with the next steps recommended in this memorandum. 2. SUMMARY OF HIGHPOINTS OF RETREAT A. Major Themes of the Retreat included: 1. Ensure that the quality of life the community expects is not fundamentally impacted by new development either during construction or after construction. 2. Refine and provide definition to a community vision and ensure that the Town's plans for future development reflect the values and needs of the community. 3. Clear, open, honest, and full communication between Council members, Council and staff, and the Town and the community. 4. Ensuring civility in our meetings and public discussions. B. Ground Rules for Success The Town Council created a set of ground rules for the day and then suggested that these would be good ground rules to use on an ongoing basis and that they should be able to constructively and respectfully hold each other accountable around these ground rules. Ground rules included: Listen Fully (Understand before being Understood) Respect other people's point of view. Trust others to perform Open full, honest, clear, concise communication Participate fully Critique with out being critical Maintain a sense of humor Balanced/equal time for opinions and input C. Expectations Council reviewed their expectations of the Town Manager and the primary expectations included: Provide clear, honest, full, and proactive communication Provide support and training for new council members Provide your opinion... with justification w/o being an advocate The Town Manager asked for the following things from Council Provide clear direction/strategic goals Trust staff— recognizing that trust needs to be earned Open and honest communication In addition, the Council discussed the community's expectations of the Town and of the Town Council. A major theme in this discussion was to actively solicit community input, listen to that input and to provide leadership in making decisions. In addition maintaining civility in public discussions was also identified as an ongoing need. D. Definition of Success The Town Council came to consensus on a definition for success in the future. The following statement focused on maintaining the values of the community. The statement reflects the need to maintain the high quality of life the community expects while facilitating any new development or change in the community. Success is ensuring: That the Town of Snowmass Village is a livable sustainable, enjoyable community" E. Goal Areas Each Department was given the opportunity to communicate issues or goals they felt were critical to their areas. After receiving that input the Council working with the Directors articulated several goal areas which were summarized as the following: That Snowmass Village shall be a Livable, Healthy, and Sustainable Community. Maintain a sustainable community (we can enjoy the ride) through the construction process by actively managing construction and its timing. The Community will create a consensus based process to develop a vision which balances community and the resort and with that vision ensure that planning for the West Village and the community as a whole meets the community's needs. Future development needs to ensure that the carrying capacity is not exceeded with respect to services, infrastructure, sense of community, and the environment. In addition, future planning needs to specifically evaluate how the three commercial nodes will be connected and compliment each other for both the community and the guest. Foster pride in the community through appropriate physical planning and community programs. This includes integrating community values into community forums and decisions. F. Recommended Actions After reviewing the input from the Retreat, staff is recommending the following next steps: Targeted Comprehensive Plan Update: After reviewing the input from the Council, staff is recommended that a targeted update to the comprehensive plan be implemented to (see memorandum for the Comprehensive Plan): Refine and provide definition to the Town's vision for the future through a community based process. Ensure future development works within the carrying capacity of the community. Complete the west village plan as part of a comprehensive plan update so that: community goals can be realized in this commercial area, new development does not exceed the community's carrying capacity, the three commercial nodes can complement each other, and transit oriented development can effectively be integrated with other public and private uses in the area. Develop a comprehensive Work Plan: Staff will develop a comprehensive work plan to achieve the Town Council's goals within three months. Staff would also add additional definition to the goals, which would be measurable for the Council and the community. Construction Mitigation: Staff will continue to diligently implement the Town's Construction Management Program as presented to the Town Council so that we can maintain a sustainable community and economy. Work sessions: To ensure that information is communicated and received effectively, schedule Work Session when needed prior to a decision. Work sessions would not include any decisions and would continue to be public meetings. Implement Ongoing Actions: Staff will continue to implement ongoing actions to improve community involvement and complete critical community projects such as: Initiate rodeo housing construction, Conduct a community survey, Develop plans for the recreation center gymnasium, Improve and enhance special events and promote business in Snowmass Village year round to ensure a sustainable economy during construction. Continue construction on the Entry-Way Park, and Complete the Town Hall project on time and on budget 3. ACTION REQUESTED OF COUNCIL 1. Does the Council want to utilize the ground rules moving forward in Council meetings? 2. Review and provide clarification to the above-mentioned goals and recommended next steps? 3. To help facilitate communication and streamline the Council meeting, can the Town Manager work with the Council to identify opportunities for Work Session where the sole purpose of the Work Session is to communicate information related to a topic that would be considered for a decision? It could be a public meeting where no decisions would be made. It could be scheduled on a Monday when there is no Council meeting or at another time convenient for the Council. P:\MANAGER.XSC\Memos\Retreat Follow-up.doc MEMORANDUM TO: Snowmass Village Town Council FROM: Russell Forrest, Chris Conrad, Jason Haber, David Peckler, Kathleen Wanatowicz DATE: May 21, 2007 SUBJECT: TARGETED UPDATE TO THE 1998 COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND WEST VILLAGE PLAN I.PURPOSE AND ACTIONS REQUESTED OF COUNCIL: Staff requests Council's direction in initiating a targeted update of the Town's Comprehensive Plan. This update would result in refining the Town's long-range vision for Snowmass Village and developing guidelines in the West Village including the Mall Transit/Parking Plaza. Attached is a draft request for proposals for your review. Staff would request Council's input on the proposed goals for the project (section IV.A). Council may choose to direct staff, if comfortable with the goals of the project, to issue the RFP. II.BACKGROUND / NEED FOR COMP PLAN UPDATE A. 1998 Comprehensive Plan Purpose: The Town's Comprehensive Plan is a regulatory document to guide elected and appointed officials, staff, businesses, developers, property owners, and other entities in implementing goals and objectives. Updating the Comprehensive Plan is a community wide effort and will involve many opportunities for citizen involvement. The Comprehensive Plan should be updated every two years. Status: Concurrently, the 1998 Comprehensive Plan needs to be updated to reflect approved development projects, additional carrying capacities, and future redevelopment of the West Village. The Plan did not specifically contemplate the level of development approved in Base Village and the current project proposed at the Village Center. It did recognize that these areas were appropriate for more dense commercial and residential development. The Comprehensive Plan process will reconfirm the Town's vision for Snowmass Village and clearly define a set a values. B. West Village Revitalization Purpose: In 2003, after experiencing nearly five years of steadily falling sales tax revenues, and increasing concern over outdated accommodations and infrastructure in the West Village area, the Town initiated a focused planning effort to turn these trends around. Although sales tax revenues have been on the rise since 2004, with the Base Village Project under way and the proposed redevelopment of the Snowmass Center, there is an ongoing concern that the West Village / Mall area will be left behind. Planning Efforts: In early 2002, the Forward Plan was published by the Village Leadership Forum (VLF). This group was organized to address a range of challenges facing the Town from international resort market realities, upgrading and reinvesting in the resort's assets, and balancing resort and community values. Among other strategic recommendations and guiding principles, the VLF produced the Town's Aspiration Statement: We aspire to be the leading multi-season, family-oriented mountain resort community. We will do this by creating, marketing and delivering distinctive choices for fun, excitement, challenge, learning and togetherness. All this is done amidst our unique, natural splendor..as part of a memorable Aspen/Snowmass experience. Further, we wish to be seen by this as welcoming, dynamic, convenient and successful. We will always be responsible stewards of our environment, economy and society. When successful, Snowmass Village will have achieved the quality of life and economic vitality that will assure our future as a sustainable resort community. In 2002 and 2003, the property owners within West Village's Mall area met with Town staff to identify opportunities to ensure the Mall's continued viability, prepare a plan for West Village's future (including redevelopment), and coordinate potential West Village improvements with the Base Village Project. It was agreed that the Town would take the lead in a planning effort with the commercial core stakeholders as active participants. Also in 2003, the Town Council and staff led a series of public meetings to assess the standing of Snowmass Village within the resort industry and to understand how best to address shortcomings. A fundamental shortcoming identified was the lack of a vital and vibrant commercial core, which prevents Snowmass Village from being highly competitive. Necessary components to creating a successful commercial core included critical mass of the right commercial mix, good design, and operational excellence. A next step created as a part of this effort was to continue to work with the West Village ownerships to develop a plan for revitalization. In late 2003, a concept paper for West Village Revitalization was prepared for the Town by Economic Planning Systems (EPS). The intent of this paper was to further explore principles from the Forward Plan specific to the revitalization of West Village. The paper recommended creating new zone districts that supported mixed-use types of development, and preparing a general development plan to better understand the potential impacts and opportunities for revitalization. The services of Bluegreen were engaged to carry this planning effort forward. Bluegreen's process relied on numerous past reports and studies of the West Village area. The Town has invested in efforts to understand the deficiencies in West Village and the best approach to move forward was to review this past work, identify those opportunities and barriers that still have merit in helping to achieve the Town's goals, and verify their relevance through additional limited study with Town staff and consultants. In collaboration with the stakeholder group (primarily business and property owners and their consultants), redevelopment options were created from the best of the previous proposals and the latest ideas coming out of Bluegreen's analysis. Various options were presented as potential solutions to existing conditions that should be corrected. Over a period of more than two-years, various combinations of 36 unique solutions were assembled to create four distinct redevelopment scenarios. These scenarios represent the range of potential redevelopment visions from the easiest and least costly) to accomplish to the most difficult. In 2005 and 2006, the preferred Scenario 4 was presented to more than 12 community interest groups, including homeowners associations, lodging and merchant groups, special district boards and Town boards. The plan was presented during a handful of community forums and to Town Council on several occasions, most recently in December 2006, at which time staff was directed to temporarily discontinue efforts to move the West Village Revitalization Plan forward. Status: To date the West Village Revitalization Plan is not complete and needs further analysis. One developer has purchased a significant amount of commercial and residential land area and this now presents new opportunities from a land planning perspective. It should be noted that planning for redevelopment in the West Village dates back to the 1980's. C. Mall Transit/Parking Plaza Purpose: The 1998 Comprehensive Plan specially speaks to a parking plaza in the West Village. In 2002, Base Village went through a long review. A transit station was incorporated in the arrival facility in Building 7, tangent to the loading and delivery area. The Transportation Planner for the developer maintained that the transit facility in Base Village would function as an interim facility between the Mall and Snowmass Center. Upon approval of the Base Village submission, private interests in the Mall area approached the Town to discuss the revitalization of the West Village (Mall) area. In reviewing the land uses for the West Village Revitalization, the Station elements were again brought up for review. Staff began working on the design of the Station with the land planners from Design Workshop on conceptual layouts of transit islands for the Station. The private sector invited the . Town to participate in a Joint Development venture under FTA guidelines using the company Urban Innovations to secure FTA funding, and to craft an agreement between the Town and private sector on development options. FTA was contacted to inform them of the Town's interest to propose a Joint Development project, as relates to grant funding activities noted above in Section 5309 grants. The FTA has been kept informed of the progress to date on creating a Joint Development Project. The Needs Assessment and Feasibility Study has been presented to FTA for their approval. This document includes appraisal of Town property that may be impacted by West Village Redevelopment. Staff has just begun to conduct public outreach meetings to engage the community in discussion for the Station as part of the West Village Revitalization land use. Status: Town Council has approved Urban Innovations to move forward with completion of the following tasks: Coordinate submission of National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) assessment to the Town by the engineering firm; Establish financing mechanism (cost sharing % between Developer and Town) for Joint Development planning funding; Coordinate filing of Planning Grant application with FTA/CDOT for additional planning funding; Arrange receipt of Developer planning funds. The Town has selected a firm to conduct an Environmental Assessment of the site, and a scoping meeting will be held mid-May. We hope to have the Environmental Assessment completed by late July and submitted to FTA for their review. The Town is hoping that the project will be granted Categorical Exclusion status by FTA. A new RFP will be released for architectural and design work upon completion of the update of the comprehensive plan. The Transportation Department will continue to work on keeping the project positioned for FTA funding. At a planning meeting for the Colorado Transit Coalition at the Colorado Association of Transit Agencies, the Town will be proposing a 2010 construction date for the project at that meeting. The Town has some funding from CDOT set aside for architecture/design work once the Environmental Assessment is completed. The Town is waiting for CDOT to draft the agreement for these funds. CDOT is working on the 2008 and 2009 grant requests. A major component of a targeted update of the comprehensive plan is to update the Transportation plan for the Town. III. APPLICABLE REGULATIONS The Town's Land Use Code clearly states that the Comprehensive Plan should be updated every two years. The last update to the Town's Comprehensive Plan was in 2005. FTA has regulations and criteria for projects to qualify as a Joint Development project. The Mall Transit/Parking Plaza is listed in CDOT State Transportation Improvement Program and will need to be listed as a priority project to be eligible for funding. An amendment was made in 2005 to the Comprehensive Plan to facilitate planning in the West Village. IV. DISCUSSION ITEMS / NEXT STEPS A. Goals for Plan Update Staff would recommend the following goals for updating the Comprehensive Plan: Refine and provide definition to the Town's vision for the future through a community based process. Ensure future development works within the carrying capacity of the community. Complete the west village plan as part of a comprehensive plan update so that: community goals can be realized in this commercial area, new development does not exceed the community's carrying capacity, the three commercial nodes can complement each other, and joint development for transit can effectively be integrated with other public and private uses in the area. Provide clear guidelines for new development and identify needed public benefits. B. Public Process Staff will develop a communication plan to engage the community in this process. The plan will describe ways for citizens to actively engage in the planning process. This process will remain open to the public and the public will be able to track progress on the Town's website. The first process of a public outreach plan is to present a State of Snowmass Village address to the community in July and then to develop with the community a shared set of values that will be the basis for creating a vivid description for the community's future. C. Proposed Process The following is an overview of the recommended process: To begin this process staff recommends developing a report that synthesizes the work to date on the West Village Master Plan (Bluegreen), Transit Plaza (UI), and other planning efforts dating back to the 1980's. The objective is to combine the two efforts into a Master Planning Initiative, which will culminate in a successful and inclusive public process. Staff would recommend that the Planning Commission would act as the primary steering committee with two council representatives and begin a targeted update to the Town's 1998 Comprehensive Plan. Part of this effort would include taking inventory of past planning efforts to integrate all plans moving forward. Staff would recommend that an RFP be issued to obtain independent resources for this effort. Resources anticipated for this project include: land planners, retail/market consultants, and transportation consultants. This new effort would update the Transportation Plan in the Comprehensive Plan to include new transit/parking plaza. In addition, staff would propose to pursue transit funding grants to help pay for the planning process. Staff would also ensure that EOTC and Federal funding opportunities are preserved in this process. Cultivate a clear vision of the future with a vivid description developed out of a community process through several public workshops. Develop an overall plan for the Village Mall, including a new Transit Center partially funded by FTA under a Joint Development agreement. Regulatory Plan/Overlay District for West Village. Implement amendments to the Land Use Code. Maintain an engaging public process. Throughout the planning the Town would actively engage all the major stakeholders in the community including: Aspen Skiing Company, Related Westpac, business owners, employees, residents, non-residents, families, and second homeowners. Staff is recommending a focused process with significant public involvement in a way that would lead to a completed plan in January of 2008. D. Request for Proposals If Town Council is comfortable with the goals and the direction proposed with completing a targeted update of the Comprehensive Plan, staff has prepared a draft request for proposals (RFP)for consulting firms. It is anticipated, that the Town would need for the following areas of expertise on the project team: Land Planning and Urban Design Transportation Planning (Vehicular Traffic, Mass Transit, Parking, and Pedestrian Activity) Market Analysis for retail and commercial areas Meeting facilitation and public process Attachment A includes the draft RFP. The RFP process for this type of project does involve over a month of time to solicit proposals and then select a team. Staff would like to initiate this process as soon as Council is comfortable with the project goals and the draft RFP. V. NEXT STEPS/ MAJOR MILESTONES June — August Issue a RFP for Comprehensive Plan update including Transit Planning and select a consultant team. Develop a work plan including a chronological timeline of the West Village Planning Process Deliver a State of Snowmass Village presentation with current market trends Form steering committee (Planning Commission) and appoint members of the council Develop a communications plan for the public process. Conduct a visioning process with the community. VI. ACTION REQUESTED OF COUNCIL Does the Council support conducting a targeted update of Comprehensive Plan and the proposed goals mentioned in this memorandum. Also does the Council support moving forward with issuing an RFP to initiate the process? P:\MANAGER.XSC\Memos\Compplan52107(2).doc REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS TARGETED UPDATE OF THE TOWN OF SNOWMASS VILLAGE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN May 21, 2007 - DRAFT 1.INTRODUCTION The Town of Snowmass Village, hereafter referred to as the Town, completed a comprehensive plan in 1998. Since then, a major development was approved referred to as the Base Village and another large community commercial project (the Snowmass Center) may potentially start in 2008. The third commercial area in Snowmass Village, referred to as the West Village, has had several planning efforts that have included a Joint Development Plan under FTA requirements along with a master plan. Neither of these plans have been completed. The Town developed a vision or aspiration statement from public meetings held in 2002 developed by the Village Leadership Forum. Which is: We aspire to be the leading multi-season, family-oriented mountain resort community. We will do this by creating, marketing and delivering distinctive choices for fun, excitement, challenge, learning and togetherness. All this is done amidst our unique, natural splendor...as part of a memorable Aspen/Snowmass experience. Further, we wish to be seen by this as welcoming, dynamic, convenient and successful. We will always be responsible stewards of our environment, economy and society. When successful, Snowmass Village will have achieved the quality of life and economic vitality that will assure our future as a sustainable resort community." Providing additional definition, refinement, and validation for this statement would be valuable for planning Snowmass' future. New opportunities have also presented themselves to Snowmass Village. A new developer now owns and controls either all or a majority interest in the three commercial areas of Snowmass Village: 1) Base Village, 2) Village Center, and 3)West Village. This is both an opportunity to realize new opportunities and a challenge to ensure that the community's vision is achieved with any new redevelopment. Snowmass as a resort is now 40 years old and the municipality is 30 years old. Given the history of the community, previous community planning, and the new land ownership opportunities, it is critical for the community to take stock of what it has achieved and define a path forward that achieves the community's vision and goals. The town is also being asked to deal with many interrelated issues such as circulation, housing, recreation, and land use issues that transcend neighborhoods. It also appears to be clear that Snowmass Village is at a crossroads. We have experienced an incredible amount of physical development. However, what's next? Are we clear on where we want to be in 10-15 years? Do we have a clear set of values to relate actions back to? Understanding the community's values (quality of life, natural environment, safe secure place to live and raise a family) provides the underpinning of developing a vision and ultimately an action plan. 1 At an April 10, 2007 retreat, the Town Council indicated a need to ensure that Snowmass Village is sustainable as a community and a resort. The Town Council indicated a definition of success was "That the Town of Snowmass Village is a livable, sustainable, and enjoyable community." Furthermore, the idea of creating a targeted update of the comprehensive plan was discussed to ensure that the community's vision and values were clearly understood and that future planning (i.e. West Village) was consistent with that vision and those values. 2.PROJECT GOALS The following are approved project goals approved by the Snowmass Village Town Council: Refine and provide definition to the Town's vision for the future through a community based process. Ensure future development works within the carrying capacity of the community. Complete the west village plan as part of a comprehensive plan update so that: community goals can be realized in this commercial area, new development does not exceed the community's carrying capacity, the three commercial nodes can complement each other, and transit oriented development can effectively be integrated with other public and private uses in the area. Update critical areas of the 1998 Comprehensive Plan, (such as but not limited to: Economic and market needs identified in Chapter 3, Transportations Plan, Employee Housing Needs that need to be updated as the result of development that has been approved and as the result of the physical planning for the West Village.

It would include: 24 seasonal units with 96 bedrooms, and 12 permanent housing units with 24 bedrooms The floor area of the project, pursuant to the measurement standards in the Municipal Code, is 38,839 square feet. This includes floor area outside of the dwelling units. The employee housing would be housed in two, three-story building ranging in height from 42.7 to 44.7 feet above the lower finished floor level. The building would be slightly cut into the existing hillside. III. BACKGROUND Why and how did proiect inception process start: The proposed project was envisioned by the Applicant for the purpose of mitigating 38,143 square feet of the employee housing requirement for the initial phases of the Base Village project. The project initial began as a Sketch Plan application in September 2003, was subsequently placed on hold to complete the review of the Base Village application, and then modified to a four-story proposal, which eventually was accepted. On January 17, 2006, Council granted the Applicant permission via Resolution No. 5, Series of 2006, to proceed to a Preliminary Plan application. How did this application process start: The Preliminary Plan application was initially submitted on September 21, 2006 and updated as complete on October 25, 2006; On November 6, 2006 Town Council granted, via Resolution No. 55, Series of 2006, the Applicant's requested deferral of the subdivision platting and rezoning information to Final PUD and deferred, rather than waived, the traffic study incorporating turning movement numbers for review by Planning Commission prior to acting upon their resolution; On December 4, 2006, a joint meeting of the Town Council and Planning Commission was held, as required by Code, to hear the presentation of the application by the Applicant; On December 18, 2006, Town Council acted upon Resolution No. 64, Series of 2006, which identified the specific components within the application, including project elements, specific areas of the Land Use and Development Code or core issues, that the Planning Commission should focus upon during the course of their review and provided the direction that the application review shall take; The Planning Commission reviewed the application, and the supplemental information or updates thereto, at public hearings on January 3 and 17, and February 7, 2007; and On February 7, 2007, the Planning Commission recommended approval of the project to Town Council subject to certain other recommendations or conditions being addressed via Resolution No. 2, Series of 2007, including strong recommendations that the project include a fourth level for additional employee housing (see the initial Town Council report of March 5, 2007, if needed). 2. Action or Direction From Council To Date: March 5, 2007: Initial public hearing and presentation of the Preliminary Plan application; . March 19, 2007: Scheduled for review of one-half of core issues as directed by Council; The core issues were not discussed as a result of Applicant's plan, presented at the meeting, to meet with Snowmass Water and Sanitation District (SWSD) board to determine if a fourth-story proposal was possible; The public hearing was continued to April 16, 2007. April 16, 2007: It was reported that the SWSD rejected the fourth-story idea, based on certain reasons including the lack of an underground parking area. The meeting began with the review of core issues presented March 19`h considering the three-story proposal. These core issues included, whether there should be any additional housing needs, the building heights/variations, employee housing mitigation provisions, unit mix/locations, parking provisions and parking restrictions. Enough direction was provided for most of the core issues for subsequent inclusion in a resolution, but certain topics were rolled to the next meeting. The public hearing was continued to May 7, 2007. May 7, 2007: Town Council completed the review of the remaining core issues, directed the staff to prepare a resolution for the next meeting, and continued the hearing to May 21, 2007. IV.

In this FIA, EPS used the Colorado Census of Retail Trade numbers instead of the sales tax calculations used in all previous FIA's prepared by EPS. Using the Colorado data doesn't make sense for this town and does seem to make a difference in the amount of sales tax each formula generates. EPS should remain consistent and continue to use the $15 per day expenditure for permanent residents. The Financial Advisory Board notes that the use of marginal increases in the costs of certain departments (e.g. General Gov't) fails to attribute to the project a fair share of the costs of operating these departments. In the future, we recommend that the project's projections assume that it shares 100% of the current per capita cost of these departments, however, no changes are recommended for this analysis. The report uses the 2005 revised budget numbers, but the Financial Advisory Board would like to reiterate the importance of using the most current available budget numbers for the FIA. The Financial Advisory Board is not recommending any changes to this report for this analysis. The Financial Advisory Board is in agreement with the Planning Commission regarding the financial impact of the project, but would like to have it acknowledged that they have some issues with how the report was done. However, the Financial Advisory Board recommends acceptance of the report because the impact on the Towns budget is minimal. The Financial Advisory Board will address overall concerns with the FIA's at a later date.

Subject to the implementing the conditions in in 68 Section Three of this Resolution, the Town Council hereby finds that: 69 70 1) The Applicant submitted the Preliminary PUD application for the Project in 71 accordance with the provisions of the Municipal Code. The Preliminary PUD 72 application provided the Minimum Contents required pursuant to Section 73 16A-5-340(c), except those submission items that were deferred, and 74 included written and graphic materials in sufficient detail to deem the 75 application complete for review. 76 77 2) The Applicant has submitted supplemental information during the review 78 process to present changes or updates to the application for the primary 79 purpose of responding to the directions provided by Town Council, Planning 80 Commission and Staff requests, comments, and concerns. 81 82 3) All public notification requirements, as specified within Section 16A-5-60(b) of 83 the Municipal Code, have been satisfied, including submittal of the affidavits 84 from the Applicant regarding mailing and posting of the public hearing 85 notices. 86 87 4) The application has been satisfactorily reviewed by the Planning Commission 88 and Town Council pursuant to the Town Council directives in Resolutions 89 Nos. 55 and 64, Series of 2006. 90 2 TC Reso. 07-16 Page 3 of 14 91 5) The application's unit mix is appropriate given the Applicant's past success 92 with similar unit mixes at Club Commons I. 93 94 6) The site is a good location for employee housing with limited height impacts 95 as further described in the findings below. 96 97 7) Pursuant. to Section 16A-5-310(2), "Preservation of community character" 98 under the Review Standards, the buildings' mass, scale and height of the 99 development proposed for the PUD are consistent with the standards of 100 Section 16A-4-340, 'Building Design Guidelines to Preserve Community 101 Character" under the Development Evaluation Standards, and compatible 102 with the character of existing land uses in the area, which creates the 103 impression that it does not adversely affect the development in the 104 surrounding area, because of the following findings: 105 106 a) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-340(c)(1), "Site integration," of the Municipal 107 Code, the proposed structures acceptably incorporate a plan design that 108 avoids overwhelming the surrounding mountain environment because: 109 i) The proposal minimizes the grading changes and complements the 110 naturallandforms; 111 ii) The new buildings are designed to be set into the slope; and 112 iii) The building massing is broken up or stepped along a slope to 113 conform to the shape, aspect and scale of the natural terrain. 114 115 b) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-340(c)(2), "Scale and mass," the proposed 116 design of the buildings satisfactorily conveys the perception that the 117 buildings are not monumental in scale, including its relationship to the 118 scale of surrounding buildings, because: 119 i) The character of the surrounding area within the immediate vicinity of 120 the site has not changed and it still remains a good site for employee 121 housing; 122 ii) The scale, form and proportion of the proposed buildings relate well to 123 the prevailing surrounding buildings in the immediate vicinity of the 124 site, considering that the three-story buildings are less than the ridge 125 line elevations of the buildings behind it to the south and up the 126 hillside; 127 iii) The buildings avoid the "wall" or "row" effect, due to the architectural 128 relief illustrated in the elevations and are similar in design to Club 129 Commons I, which is acceptable; and 130 iv) The design of the buildings respect human scale. 131 132 8) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-340(c)(5), "Views," the proposed buildings appear 133 to create the impression that they satisfactorily oriented to take advantage of 134 views and view corridors, and to frame views and enclose open space, as it 135 would still appear, being positioned far away from public roadways and at a 136 low point of the valley, to convey the preservation of important sight lines, 3 TC Reso. 07-16 Page 4 of 14 137 overlooks and landmarks as viewed from public roadways and other public 138 spaces, and as viewed from neighboring developments. 139 140 9) The amended Municipal Code provisions in Section 16A-4-50(f), "Ridgeline 141 Protection Areas" under the Development Evaluation Standards do not apply, 142 as the site is not within a defined ridgeline protection area that is visible from 143 Brush Creek Road, Owl Creek Road or the Town Community Park and is not 144 at the crest or highest elevation of a ridge or hillside, or within fifty (50) feet of 145 elevation, measured vertically, from the crest of a ridge or hillside. 146 147 10) Pursuant to Municipal Code Section 16A-5-300(c)(5) and (7), "Dimensional 148 limitations," and "Standards for granting variations" under the General 149 Restrictions, the proposed application requires height variations and meets 150 the following height criteria: 151 152 a) The proposed three-story buildings meet the rule that at least 50% of the 153 structure for which the variation is sought, as measured utilizing the 154 structure's footprint from existing grade and finished grade, conforms to 155 the height limits of the underlying zoning parameters for Parcel 12, or 41 156 feet, provided such building is located on Parcel 12 or if an amendment to 157 the PUD is subsequently submitted as is permissible by Council to expand 158 the boundary, land uses and development parameters into the impacted 159 area on the Snowmass Water and Sanitation District (SWSD) site for the 160 development to occur; and 161 162 b) The height variations to 43 feet (7971' elevation MSL) above finished 163 grade for Building B12 and 45 feet (7976' elevation MSL) above finished 164 grade for Building A24 appear acceptable for a Preliminary Plan level of 165 review, subject to resolution and approval the final proposed re-zoning, 166 the amendment to the Snowmass Club Final PUD, and the land use and 167 development parameters or standards that are agreed upon during the 168 Final PUD review stage. 169 170 c) If a re-zoning and amendment of the Final Snowmass Club PUD is sought 171 for the affected SWSD site intended for the Club Commons Il.project that 172 has a height limit of 38 feet or if such standard (e.g., 38 foot height limit 173 versus a 41 foot height limit) is eventually set and approved by Council, 174 then the buildings might exceed the height limit of the underlying zone 175 district by more than 75%, triggering a super-majority vote of the Town 176 Council during the subsequent Final PUD review, in addition to providing a 177 community purpose and the demonstration of "exceptional and special 178 circumstances." 179 180 11) Pursuant to Municipal Code Section 16A-5-300(c)(5-7), "Dimensional 181 limitations," "Community purposes for PUDs," and "Standards for granting 182 variations" under the General Restrictions, the Applicant's offered community 4 TC Reso. 07-16 Page 5 of 14 183 purpose, as described in attached Exhibit "C," is acceptable for a Preliminary 184 Plan level of review subject to addressing Finding #10 above, and the 185 Applicant satisfactorily justified why the height variations are necessary for 186 the buildings in order to achieve the community purpose offered. 187 188 12) Pursuant to Municipal Code Section 16A-4-310(7), "Off-Street Parking 189 Standards," the Applicant is proposing an alternative parking plan, which is 190 reasonable and acceptable for the site and the usages proposed, subject to 191 managing the parking effectively with certain restrictions. 192 193 13) Pursuant to Municipal Code Section 16A-4-320, "Landscaping, grading and 194 other design standards," the Schematic Landscape Design dated September 195 12, 2006 for the site in the application is acceptable for a Preliminary Plan 196 level of review. 197 198 14) Pursuant to Municipal Code Section 16A-4-210, "Streets and related 199 improvements" the vehicular traffic impacts from the proposed employee 200 housing project are minimal mainly because of the transit-dependent nature 201 of the development and the nominal increase in traffic in contrast to the 202 existing traffic volumes and capacity of the Town's roadway network; 203 Therefore, the updated traffic impact analysis submitted February 2007 is 204 acceptable as the current capacity of the street network can handle the traffic 205 from the project and no traffic related mitigation is required. 206 207 15) Pursuant to Municipal Code Section 16A-5-310(7), "Adequate facilities," 208 there is a need for additional transit service to serve the employees at the 209 Club Commons II site. 210 211 16) Pursuant to Municipal Code Section 16A-5-310(7), "Adequate facilities," 212 there is a need to improve the pedestrian connections and lighting between 213 the Club Commons site and Brush Creek Road as a means to increase the 214 pedestrian safety and usage along the existing walkway segments. 215 216 17) Pursuant to Municipal Code Section 16A-4-340, 'Building design guidelines 217 to preserve community character," the design of the new storage sheds 218 proposed on Parcel 12 are acceptable and would be a used for the purpose 219 of housing golf course equipment that is currently stored outside on the site, 220 as represented by the Applicant. 221 222 18) Pursuant to Municipal Code Section 16A-5-340(b)(15), "Construction 223 management plan," on-site dust control per the construction management 224 plan is acceptable, including the use of magnesium chloride on the site only, 225 where needed. 226 227 19) Pursuant to Municipal Code Section 16A-5-340(b)(12), "Fiscal impact," 228 employee housing is not a fiscal revenue generator, but rather a "revenue 5 TC Reso. 07-16 Page 6 of 14 229 facilitator" in that the Resort Operation as that principal revenue generator 230 depends on available employee base and that conversely the Town relies 231 heavily on employee housing to drive the tourist business. The Town's 232 Financial Advisory Board (FAB) is in agreement with the finding stated above 233 as also affirmed by the Planning Commission resolution, and the FAB 234 recommends acceptance of the report because the impact on the Town's 235 budget is minimal. Therefore, the fiscal impact report as presented in the 236 application is acceptable and no fiscal related mitigation is necessary at this 237 time. 238 239 20) Pursuant to Municipal Code Section 16A-4-410, "Restricted housing 240 requirements," the square footage of a minimum 38,053 square feet within 241 the two, three-story buildings, as further described conditionally in Section 242 Three of this Resolution, is acceptable as employee housing mitigation 243 square footage. 244 245 21) Pursuant to Municipal Code Section 16A-5-310(1), "Consistency with 246 Comprehensive Plan" under the Review Standards, the proposed employee 247 housing project is currently consistent with the `Mixed-Use' land use 248 designation for Parcel 12 of the Snowmass Club and currently inconsistent 249 with the 'Public Use' designation on the SWSD site according to the Future 250 Land Use Map of the Comprehensive Plan, but the proposed land use is 251 consistent with the policies and objectives outlined in Chapter Eight, Housing, 252 of the Comprehensive Plan as further described in the findings below. 253 254 22) Pursuant to Municipal Code Section 16A-5-310(1), "Consistency with 255 Comprehensive Plan" under the Review Standards, the proposed Preliminary 256 Plan application does not conflict with a majority of the goals, objectives and 257 policies of the Comprehensive Plan, with the exception of the policies related 258 to the Buildout Chart (Line B97). 259 260 23) The Comprehensive Plan's Buildout Analysis Chart for the properties 261 designates no free-market units for SCA's Parcel 12 or the SWSD site, and 262 therefore, no free-market housing shall be considered for this site. However, 263 employee housing is appropriate for the site, and therefore, the proposed 264 project would seem to be a proper use, given the findings stated above, if the 265 project is eventually accepted and approved for the purpose of fulfilling 266 housing mitigation requirements. 267 268 24) Pursuant to the findings above and subject to the recommendations in 269 Section Three of this Resolution, the proposed Preliminary Plan application 270 acceptably addressed and complied with the other review and approval 271 criteria in Municipal Code Section 16A-5-300(c), General Restrictions, and 272 Section 16A-5-310, Review Standards. 273 6 TC Reso. 07-16 Page 7 of 14 274 25) Pursuant to the findings above and subject to the recommendations in 275 Section Three of this Resolution, the proposed application satisfactorily 276 addressed and complied with the "Purpose" and the "Review and intent 277 issues" or questions outlined in Municipal Code Section 16A-5-340. 278 279 Section Two: Action. Subject to the finding in Section One and the conditions in 280 Section Three of the Resolution, the Town Council approves the items listed below 281 and permits the Applicant to proceed to a Final PUD application. 282 283 Preliminary Plan application. The Town Council, having considered all relevant 284 materials and testimony, the Planning Commission's recommendations, Town 285 Staff comments, analyses and recommendations, and public comments, hereby 286 approves the Preliminary Plan application and the modifications thereto for the 287 proposed Club Commons II Employee Housing Project as further described and 288 illustrated in Exhibit "A" incorporated herein by reference and authorizes the 289 Applicant to submit a Final PUD application concurrent with applications for re- 290 zoning, and amendment to the Final Snowmass Club PUD, and subdivision 291 platting for the project consistent with the Preliminary Plan application that 292 demonstrates compliance with or implementation of the conditions set forth in 293 Section Three below. 294 295 Draft Preliminary PUD Guide. The Town Council accepts the general concept 296 of the land use, project information, parking provisions, parking management 297 plan restrictions, community purpose commitments, and other plans or drawings 298 associated with such Preliminary Plan (Exhibit "A" of this resolution). Specific 299 language, a final PUD Guide, understandings and/or agreements shall be 300 finalized with the Final PUD application. 301 302 Buildings' height variations. Subject to ratification by ordinance during the 303 Final PUD application review and consideration, the Town Council conceptually 304 approves a variation for a Preliminary Plan level of review, subject to the final 305 height limitation being set for the property pursuant to a proposed re-zoning and 306 amendment to the Final Snowmass Club PUD. Such building heights are more 307 particularly described or illustrated in Exhibit "A," attached hereto with the 308 affected building elevation drawings. The worse-case height variation for the 309 buildings are as follows: 310 311 Building B12 (long-term permanent housing): 43 feet (7971' elevation 312 MSL) above finished grade; and 313 Building A24 (seasonal housing): 45 feet (7976' elevation MSL) above 314 finished grade. 315 316 Buildout Chart amendment. The Town Council directs the Town Staff to 317 prepare an ordinance amending the Buildout Chart of the Comprehensive Plan 318 accordingly for possible ratification concurrent or together with a Final PUD 319 ordinance. 7 TC Reso. 07-16 Page 8 of 14 320 321 Subdivision Exemption. The Town Council conceptually approves the 322 subdivision exemption for the proposed land exchange involving approximately a 323 net of 0.97 acre of land area, as further described in Exhibit "D" incorporated 324 herein by reference, subject to the Applicant providing the Town a formal land 325 exchange agreement with the adjacent property owner prior to Town Staff review 326 and final execution and recording of a subdivision exemption plat or final 327 subdivision plat. 328 329 Section Three: Conditions.

The double-walled tank contains 500 gallons ofdiesel and 1500 gallons ofgasoline. These tanks and surrounding facilities are inspected for compliance annually by the state oil inspector. In connection with the redevelopment of this site we will be incorporating all requirements of the Oil Pollution Prevention regulations at Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 112, (40 CFR 112), including required secondary containment able to collect 3,200 gallons of fuel in the event of a complete failure of a fuel delivery vehicle. In addition,Aspen Skiing Company(ASC)will be hiring a qualified firm to empty and relocate the aboveground storage tank. That firm will be required to have trained spill response staff on site and spill kits at hand. Staff at the Snowmass Golf Maintenance Facility are trained annually in spill response according to 40 CFR I I2.7(a)(3)(ii)(iv) and have spill kits, including absorbent booms, on hand near the refueling area.Training requirements are listed in section 8.0, page 23, ofASC's Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plan,which was updated on June 3, 2004 and approved as meeting federal regulations by Kenneth L. Walter ofthe Walter Group. (970) 255-8017.

We commit to continue to run those shuttles as required by the Snowmass Club Phase 1 and Base Village approvals and will add service to Club Commons 11. If the Town decides at some time in the future to establish a new route to serve the Town related entities mentioned above, we will entertain discussions to fund a portion of that expense in return for relief from the private shuttle obligations. Since no shuttle service to Club Commons 11 is contemplated by the town at this time, the applicant wishes to remove the proposed bus turnaround from Council's consideration in the review of this application.We will continue to provide the additional sidewalks, as suggested by the planning commission to provide better access to transit for those employees walking to the RFTA and TOSV stops at the intersection of Brush Creek Road and Clubhouse Drive. In reference to parking we commit to a Parking Management Plan that will allow permit only parking with preference provided first to the residents of the 1312 Building designed for year round residents at a ratio of 1.25 spaces per bedroom. No permits will be provided to residents of the seasonal housing if the number of permits requested exceeds the parking ratios proposed in this application. Additionally, the applicant is comfortable with the town prohibiting residents of Club Commons II from obtaining a Town permit to the numbered lots. The Town Council may want to discuss whether the residents of the year round housing should be eligible for TOSV permits for the numbered lots. We look forward to our meeting on May 7'h.

O 1 I MEMORANDUM TO: Snowmass Village Town Council FROM: Planning Department DATE: May 21, 2007 SUBJECT: PUBLIC HEARING AND FIRST READING — SNOWMASS MOUNTAIN — ORDINANCE NO. 8, SERIES OF 2007 — CONSIDERATION OF A MINOR PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT (PUD) AMENDMENT PROPOSING EXTENSION OF THE DEADLINE TO COMPLETE THE SAM'S KNOB REPLACEMENT RESTAURANT This particular application is a Minor PUD Amendment to the Snowmass Mountain Amendment pursuant to Section 16A-5-390, Amendment of final PUD, of the Town of Snowmass Village Land Use and Development Code, to request a one year extension of the deadline to complete the Sam's Knob replacement restaurant, located on the summit of Sam's Knob on Snowmass Mountain (reference metes and bounds legal description of the property in Ordinance No. 2, Series of 2005 Ordinance 2"), as needed). See Attachment 1 for the public hearing notice. Applicant: Aspen Skiing Company Project Manager/Planner: Chris Kiley Company Planning Director: David Corbin Planner: Jim Wahlstrom, Senior Planner I. PURPOSE AND ACTIONS REQUESTED OF COUNCIL: The purpose of the meeting would be to consider and take action upon the first reading of the attached Ordinance No. 8, Series of 2005, as may be amended at the meeting. II. SUMMARY OF DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT. The attached ordinance would document the Applicant's proposed amendment to the Final PUD of 2005 to extend the completion date of the Sam's Knob replacement restaurant by one year. Exhibit "A" of the ordinance provides the Applicant's description and justification for the proposed change. Also reference the latest letter dated May 14, 2007 from the Applicant (Attachment 2). 1 III. BACKGROUND Why and how did project inception process start: During the review of the Snowmass Mountain Amendment in 2004/05, the Applicant committed in writing to complete the construction of the replacement restaurant no later than the 2007/08 winter season. Such agreement was documented as a condition in Ordinance 2 and as a standard in the accompanying PUD Guide; The PUD Guide in Ordinance 2 required the submittal of a Special Review application of the proposed restaurant replacement project for review by the Town; On January 24, 2007, the Applicant submitted a Special Review application for the proposed Sam's Knob replacement restaurant to the Town; The Planning Commission reviewed the Special Review application at meetings held on March 7 and 21, 2007; On March 21, 2007, the Planning Commission acted upon Resolution No. 5, Series of 2007, which provided recommendations to the Town Council on the Special Review application for the new restaurant. This resolution was provided to Town Council at the initial hearing for the Special Review application on April 16, 2007; On April 9, 2007, during the time Staff was preparing a report to Council on the Special Review application for the initial hearing on April 16, 2007, the Applicant submitted a letter requesting continuance of the Town Council public hearing until August 2007 together with a second, separate request to extend the deadline for constructing the restaurant by one year; At the initial public hearing before the Town Council on April 16, 2007, the Council considered the two requests by the Applicant for continuance of the hearing and extension of the deadline, the results being that the Town Council tabled a motion to consider the Applicant's request to continue the public hearing to August 2007 and instead continued the public hearing in the interim to May 21, 2007 until for the purpose of developing a list that outlined past-due Applicant commitments or obligations together with a slate of possible remedies or mitigation for such outstanding matters; After the Council meeting on April 16, 2007, the Applicant was instructed by Town Staff that an amendment to the Final PUD via Ordinance No. 2, Series of 2005, including the PUD Guide, needed to be submitted to formally request modification to the ordinance condition and PUD Guide standard requiring the completion of the Sam's Knob replacement restaurant by the 2007/08 winter season; The Minor PUD Amendment, as generally described in attached Exhibit 'W' of Ordinance No. 8, Series of 2007 (Attachment 4), was submitted by the Applicant on April 19, 2007, deemed complete for referral purposes as of April 26, 2007, and referred to applicable Town Staff and the Planning Commission as of April 27, 2007; On May 2, 2007, the Planning Commission reviewed the proposed Minor PUD Amendment and passed Resolution No. 7, Series of 2007 (Attachment 3), which provided recommendations to the Town Council that included suggestions for an expeditious review of the application, giving priority basis to the application, and not penalizing the applicant for such a delay considering that the Applicant needs to obtain approval from two jurisdictions and their desire to obtain LEED certification Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design); The Minor PUD Amendment will be considered separately from the accompanying Special Review application at the May 21, 2007 Council meeting. 2 IV. APPLICABLE REGULATIONS Municipal Code review criteria which regulate the review and approval of Minor PUD Amendment include Municipal Code Section 16A-5-390(3), Review Standards, including reference to the General Restrictions outlined in Section 16A-5-300(c), and the Review Standards listed in Section 16A-5-310, which also includes reference to Article IV, Development Evaluation Standards, of the Land Use and Development Code. V. DISCUSION ITEMS: ALTERNATIVES AND IMPLICATIONS Option 1: Approve the one-year extension for completing the restaurant. Pros: Applicant might be better able to complete the needed or desired approvals with the Town, the United States Forest Service (USFS) and possible LEED certification plus complete their coordination of final design drawings and the preparation of construction plans in a manageable fashion. Cons: Lack of a replacement restaurant on Sam's Knob for another year, making it three versus two years without a restaurant at that location. Option2: Deny the one-year extension for completing the restaurant. Pros: Considering the Applicant's stated status of preparing for a possible application amendment and subsequent construction related constraints, such a denial might require the Applicant to construct the project in its current form and likely require the Applicant and Town to significantly rush the review and processing of the current Special Review application or an anticipated amendment to the application since the Applicant would in reality need to begin construction immediately to make this year's deadline. Cons: Considering the Applicant's stated status of preparing for a possible application amendment and subsequent construction coordination, such a denial might mean that the Applicant may not meet the deadline for constructing the restaurant this year anyway. O tion 3: With or in consideration of the above options, continue to press the Applicant on outstanding obligations or commitments on the Snowmass Mountain or other related projects, as was discussed at the initial public hearing on April 16, 2007 intended for the accompanying Special Review application. Pros: This may send the message that the Applicant needs to resolve outstanding matters or to adhere more precisely to the previous conditions agreed to by the Applicant during the 2004/05 Amendment to Snowmass Mountain and related other project approvals. Cons: Such a stance may penalize the Applicant, but could also cause further delay in getting the replacement restaurant completed as well as penalize the Town further for potential additional periods of time that restaurant is not in operation. 3 VI. OTHER HEADINGS RELATED TO THE TOPICS Attachments: 1. Public Hearing notice for the Council meeting on May 21, 2007 to consider the Minor PUD Amendment. The Applicant provided the signed affidavits of the mailing and posting of the hearing notice for the public record. 2. Applicant letter dated May 14, 2007, explaining that the Applicant was unable to meet the staff deadline (May 14'") of providing supplemental information in time for the staff report to Council. The Applicant intends to present the information at the May 21, 2007 Council meeting. 3. Planning Commission Resolution No. 7, Series of 2007, with exhibits. 4. Ordinance No. 8, Series of 2007 ("Ordinance 8"), with exhibits. In the spirit of the Planning Commissions recommendations in Resolution No. 7 Attachment 3) acted upon on May 2, 2007, Staff has taken the liberty to provide Council with an ordinance for first reading consideration at the May 21, 2007 meeting. VII. SUMMARY OF STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS AND FINDINGS At this stage in the planning of the new restaurant project and with the spring season already here, Staff recommends approving the first reading of attached Ordinance 8, as may be amended at the meeting, granting the Applicant's request for an extension of the deadline by one year to complete the replacement restaurant pursuant to the Minor PUD Amendment application. VIII. NEXT STEPS Next Steps include: Continue the public hearing to June 4, 2007 for purpose of considering action on the second reading of Ordinance 8, as may be amended at that meeting. 4 ATTACHMENT TC Report 05-21-07 Page 1 of 1 PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE TOWN OF SNOWMASS VILLAGE TOWN COUNCIL PUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT A PUBLIC HEARING WILL BE HELD BEFORE THE SNOWMASS VILLAGE TOWN COUNCIL.

WHEREAS,the Aspen Skiing Company(Applicant')submitted a Special Review application for the proposed Sam's Knob replacement restaurant located on Snowmass Mountain as required pursuant to Ordinance No.2, Series of 2005, on January 24, 2007;and WHEREAS, the Planning Commission acted upon Resolution No. 5, Series of 2007, at a public hearing on March 21, 2007 that provided recommendations to the Town Council on the Special Review application for the new restaurant; and WHEREAS, on April 9, 2007,the Applicant submitted a letter requesting continuance ofthe Town Council public hearing on April 16,2007 until August 2007 and a separate request to extend the deadline for constructing the restaurant by oneyear; and WHEREAS, at the initial public hearing before the Town Council on April 16, 2007, the Council considered the two requests by the Applicant for continuance of the hearing and extension of the deadline,the results being that the Town Council tabled a motion to consider the Applicant's request to continue the public hearing to August 2007 and instead continued the public hearing in the interim to May 21, 2007 until a list could be developed that outlined past-due Applicant commitments or obligations together with a slate of possible remedies or mitigation for such outstanding matters; and WHEREAS, the Applicant was instructed by Town Staff that an amendment to the Final PUD via Ordinance No. 2, Series of 2005, including the PUD Guide, needs to be submitted to formally request modification to the ordinance condition and PUD Guide requiring the completion of the Sam's Knob replacement restaurant by the 2007/08 winter season; and WHEREAS,the Minor PUD Amendment,as generally described in attached Exhibit"A,was submitted by the Applicant on April 19,2007,deemed complete for referral purposes as of April 26, 2007,and referred to applicable Town Staff and the Planning Commission as ofApril 27,2007;and WHEREAS, the Minor PUD Amendment application was processed in accordance with Section 16A-5-390 of the Municipal Code; and WHEREAS, the Planning Commission was scheduled to review the noted application, consider the recommendations of Town Staff, and receive public comment thereon at a public meeting held on May 2, 2007 and to take action upon this resolution. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by the Planning Commission of the Town of Snowmass Village, as follows: Section One: General Findings. The Planning Commission generally finds that: PC Reso 07-7 Page 2 of 3 1) The Applicant submitted the application forthe Minor PUD Amendment in accordance with the provisions of the Municipal Code. 2) The application provided the"Minimum Contents"required pursuant to Sections 16A-5-220 and 230, and included appropriate materials in sufficient detail to deem the application complete for initial review. 3) All public hearing notification requirements, as specified within Section 1645-60(b) of the Municipal Code, have been satisfied. 4) Pursuantto Condition#11 in Ordinance No.2,Series of 2005,and restated in the PUD Guide, it states, "The Applicant shall install a replacement Sam's Knob restaurant facility with a minimum of 125 indoor seats and an outdoor deck open to the general public no later than the '07/'08 winter season, in accordance with the review procedures outlined in the PUD Guide." This application seems to satisfactorily represent the Applicant's response to that condition. 5) Subject to addressing the recommendations in Section Three of this resolution, the Minor PUD Amendment application, as more particularly described in attached Exhibit"A," and incorporated herein by reference, is consistent with Section 16A-5-390, Amendment of a Final PUD, of the Municipal Code, because: a) The proposed Minor PUD Amendment appears to remain consistent with the original PUD in that a replacement restaurant is still proposed on Sam's Knob,albeit proposed to be delayed; b) The proposed amendment does not seem to have a substantially adverse effect on the neighborhood surrounding the land where the amendment is proposed, or have a substantially adverse impact on the enjoyment of land abutting across the subject property; c) The proposed amendment would not seem to change the basic character of the PUD or surrounding areas; d) The proposed amendment appears to comply with the other applicable standards in the Municipal Land Use and Development Code, Division 3, Planned Unit Development, including but not limited to Section 16A-5-300(c), General Restrictions,and Section 16A- 5-310, Review Standards. Section Two: Action. Pursuant to the findings stated in Section One of this resolution, the Planning Commission recommends that the Town Council approve the extension of the deadline to construct the replacement Sam's Knob restaurant, subject to satisfactorily implementing the recommendations in Section Three of this resolution. Section Three: Recommendations. The Planning Commission makes the following recommendations for consideration by Town Council as conditions for the application: 1) There should be sensitivity to the Applicant's requirementto obtain review and approval ofthe Sam's Knob replacement restaurant by two jurisdictions, and the Planning Commission encourages the expeditious review by the Town and a priority basis established for the application in efforts to get the facility open and operational as soon as possible. PC Reso 07-7 Page 3 of 3 2) The Applicant should provide a time line or critical path chart of the replacement restaurant project to document the approvals needed,deadlines and benchmarks. 3) LEED(Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)certification is an important goal to be attained by the Applicant, but not to the extent of another year's delay or lessening the quality of the building or the environmentally sensitive nature of the building. 4) There should be no penalty exacted on the Applicant as a result of the requested deadline extension, rather cooperation by the Town to insure the completion of a high quality and environmentally sensitive designed replacement restaurant facility by November 2008. 5) If possible and practical, some construction on the facility this summer orfall bythe Applicant would demonstrate a good faith effort to the community and provide flexibility for the construction schedule next season. 6) If there is any unexpected delay in the process or progress ofthe project,eitherwith the United States Forest Service(USFS), LEED certification or other needed or desired approvals,such delay or variance from the critical timeline should be immediately reported to the Town of Snowmass Village. 7) Communications of all necessary or available means should be forwarded tothe general public to inform them ofthe status of the replacement restaurant or other operations on the mountain. 8) The Applicant should improve the temporary sanitary facilities on Sam's Knob and the location of the cookie shack to improve skier circulation.

Application fee agreement ' 5. Application fee Review Standards Changed Circumstances. The request is made because Aspen Skiing Company will not be able to construct the restaurant during the 2007 construction season as has been planned. Schedule delays, green building guidelines, and cost increases are the factors behind our request. The Sam's Knob restaurant is reviewed under two jurisdictions,the Town and the US Forest Service. When our initial restaurant design was rejected by the Forest Service in July 2006 we were forced to completely redesign the restaurant. This redesign has set our schedule back an entire year, and while we have been working diligently under an accelerated timeline,it is now clear that we are too far behind on our design and entitlement schedule to complete the project in 2007. The second issue driving the construction delay is our internal design criteria, calling for an environmentally progressive building that will meet LEED certification specifications. The accelerated design process would have prevented us from attaining LEED certification of the building. Finally,pricing for the prof ect increased sixty percent(60%)between January and the end of March,exceeding the budget and severely compromising the economics of the project. Extending this deadline will allow us to re-examine building systems and redesign portions of the building to bring project costs back in line. We remain committed to delivering a quality facility that is environmentally sensitive and that meets the expectations of the community and our guests. Sam's Knob Restaurand Snowman Ski Area Minor PUD Amendment Application Page 1 EXHIBIT "A" PC Reso 07-7 Consistent with original PUD. The proposed amendment is consistent with the original Page 2 of 3 PUD approval; only the timing of Sam's Knob restaurant delivery is affected, and by one season. No substantially adverse impact. The request does not provide a substantially adverse impact to the Town. The ski area has operated for the past two seasons without a restaurant at Sam's Knob, and there has been no substantially adverse impact to the Town or to our guests during that period. It is reasonable to expect that a third season of operations without the restaurant will also not substantially adversely impact the Town. No change to character. The proposed amendment does not change the basic character of the PUD or surrounding areas; only the timing ofthe installation of the replacement facility is affected. The restaurant design will be reviewed by the Town via the Special Review process. Comply with other applicable standards. The proposed amendment does not affect other applicable standards of Article V,Division 3; Planned Unit Development including but not limited to Section 16A-5-300(c) General Restrictions and Section 16A-5-310; Review Standards.

Application fee agreement ' 5. Application fee Review Standards Changed Circumstances. The request is made because Aspen Skiing Company will not be able to construct the'restaurant during the 2007 construction season as has been planned. Schedule delays, green building guidelines, and cost increases are the factors behind our request. The Sam's Knob restaurant is reviewed under two jurisdictions, the Town and the US Forest Service. When our initial restaurant design was rejected by the Forest Service in July 2006 we were forced to completely redesign the restaurant. This redesign has set our schedule back an entire year, and while we have been working diligently under an accelerated timeline, it is now clear that we are too far behind on our design and entitlement schedule to complete the project in 2007. The second issue driving the construction delay is our internal design criteria, calling for an environmentally progressive building that will meet LEED certification specifications. The accelerated design process would have prevented us from attaining LEED certification of the building. Finally,pricing for the project increased sixty percent(60%)between January and the end ofMarch, exceeding the budget and severely compromising the economics of the project. Extending this deadline will allow us to re-examine building systems and redesign portions ofthe building to bring project costs back in line. We remain committed to delivering a quality facility that is environmentally sensitive and that meets the expectations of the community and our guests. Sam's Knob RestauranU Snowmass SkiArea Minor PUD Amendment Application Page 1 EXHIBIT "A" TC Ord 07-8 Page 2of3 Consistent with original PUD. The proposed amendment is consistent with the original PUD approval;only the timing of Sam's Knob restaurant delivery is affected, and by one season. No substantially adverse impact. The request does not provide a substantially adverse impact to the Town. The sla area has operated for the past two seasons without a restaurant at Sam's Knob, and there has been no substantially adverse impact to the Town or to our guests during that period. It is reasonable to expect that a third season of operations without the restaurant will also not substantially adversely impact the Town. No change to character. The proposed amendment does not change the basic character of the PUD or surrounding areas; only the timing of the installation of the replacement facility is affected. The restaurant design will be reviewed by the Town via the Special Review process. Comply with other applicable standards. The proposed amendment does not affect other applicable standards of Article V,Division 3;Planned Unit Development including but not limited to Section 16A-5-300(c) General Restrictions and Section 16A-5-310; Review Standards.

BACKGROUND Why and how did project inception process start: During the review of the Snowmass Mountain Amendment in 2004/05, the Applicant committed in writing to complete the construction of the replacement restaurant no later than the 2007/08 winter season. Such agreement was documented as a condition in Ordinance 2 and as a standard in the accompanying PUD Guide; The PUD Guide in Ordinance 2 required the submittal of a Special Review application of the proposed restaurant replacement project for review by the Town; On January 24, 2007, the Applicant submitted a Special Review application for the proposed Sam's Knob replacement restaurant to the Town; The Planning Commission reviewed the Special Review application at meetings held on March 7 and 21, 2007; On March 21, 2007, the Planning Commission acted upon Resolution No. 5, Series of 2007, which provided recommendations to the Town Council on the Special Review application for the new restaurant. This resolution was provided to Town Council at the initial hearing for the Special Review application on April 16, 2007; On April 9, 2007, during the time Staff was preparing a report to Council on the Special Review application for the initial hearing on April 16, 2007, the Applicant submitted a letter requesting continuance of the Town Council public hearing until August 2007 together with a second, separate request to extend the deadline for constructing the restaurant by one year; At the initial public hearing before the Town Council on April 16, 2007, the Council considered the two requests by the Applicant for continuance of the hearing and extension of the deadline, the results being that the Town Council tabled a motion to consider the Applicant's request to continue the public hearing to August 2007 and instead continued the public hearing in the interim to May 21, 2007 until for the purpose of developing a list that outlined past-due Applicant commitments or obligations together with a slate of possible remedies or mitigation for such outstanding matters; After the Council meeting on April 16, 2007, the Applicant was instructed by Town Staff that an amendment to the Final PUD via Ordinance No. 2, Series of 2005, including the PUD Guide, needed to be submitted to formally request modification to the ordinance condition and PUD Guide standard requiring the completion of the Sam's Knob replacement restaurant by the 2007/08 winter season; The Minor PUD Amendment was submitted by the Applicant on April 19, 2007. The accompanying Minor PUD Amendment will be considered separately from the Special Review application at the May 21, 2007 Council meeting. IV. APPLICABLE REGULATIONS Municipal Code review criteria which regulate the review and approval of a Special Review application include Municipal Code Section 16A-5-230(e), Review Standards, including reference to Article IV, Development Evaluation Standards, of the Land Use and Development Code. 2 V. DISCUSION ITEMS: ALTERNATIVES AND IMPLICATIONS Optionl: Approve the continuation of the public hearing to August 6, 2007. Pros: It would provide additional time for the Town in resolving outstanding matters on other related projects with the Applicant. Cons: It further delays the Council review of the Special Review application and the subsequent review of building construction plans. O tion2: Deny the continuation of the public and close the hearing. Pros: This might allow additional time to consider or debate the accompanying Minor PUD Amendment. Cons: The processing of additional public hearing notices would be required, even if the application remains in its current form. VI. OTHER HEADINGS RELATED TO THE TOPICS Attachments: Applicant letter dated May 14, 2007, explaining that the Applicant amended request to continue the Council public hearing for the Special Review application to August 6, rather than August 1, 2007. VII. SUMMARY OF STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS AND FINDINGS At this stage in the planning of the new restaurant project and with the spring season already here, Staff recommends granting the Applicant's request to continue the Council public hearing for the Special Review application to August 6, 2007. Vill. NEXT STEPS Next Steps include: Considering acceptance of a possible amendment to the Special Review application by the Applicant on August 6, 2007. 3 SNOWMASS ASPEN MOUNTAIN ASPEN HIGHLANDS BUTTERMILK A S P E N C S N O W M A S Sn ASPEN SKIING COMPANY Jim Wahistrom Town of Snowmass Village PO Box 5010 Snowmass Village, CO 81615 May 14, 2007 Dear Jim; Thank you for the opportunity to reply in advance of the Town Council hearing on May 21"to review the Sam's Knob Restaurant Special Review and the Snowmass Mountain Minor PUD Amendment applications.

III. BACKGROUND Why and how did project inception process start: Sketch Plan process: The Applicant initially submitted a Sketch Plan application on March 27, 2001; The Applicant submitted a revised Sketch Plan application on May 21, 2001 in response to Town staff and referral agency comments; A joint meeting between the Town Council and the Planning Commission was held on June 11, 2001 to identify major issues on the Sketch Plan application; Public meetings were held before the Planning Commission on June 20, July 11, 18 and 25, 2001 to review the Sketch Plan application and draft a resolution with recommendations to Town Council; Public meetings were held before the Town Council on August 13 and 20, 2001, and on September 4, 2001 when it was determined that the Applicant needed to redesign the Sketch Plan project to address density related matters by submitting new information; The applicant submitted revised additional information for the Sketch Plan in November 2001 in response to Town Council directives at the September 4, 2001 meeting; The additional information presented with the Sketch Plan PUD in November 2001 generally proposed: a) an increase in the commercial and office square footage from 53,085 to 73,665 square feet; b) adding 26 multi-family units above the main level of the Center; c) adding 37 units in the draw area behind the Center; d) adding four single-family lots with an access road, drainage pond and parking area in the draw area (Parcels H and H-1) behind Woodbridge Condominiums; e) a height variance increasing the maximum building height to six levels or 75 feet; and f) a parking and 2 driveway re-arrangement involving approximately 324 spaces, including structured and underground parking facilities; Town Council held meetings on November 12 and 19, 2001 to consider and review the new information for the Sketch Plan presented by the Applicant and it was determined that another joint meeting with the Planning Commission was needed; On December 10, 2001, a second joint meeting with the Planning Commission was held to consider comments from the Planning Commission members; The Planning Commission subsequently held meetings on January 9, 16, and 23, 2002, to consider the revised additional information for the Sketch Plan; On January 23, 2002, the Planning Commission passed Resolution No. 02, Series of 2002, outlining its findings and recommendations to Town Council on the revised Sketch Plan; Town Council held public meetings on February 4 and 11, March 4 and 11, and April 8 and 15 to review the updated information for the Sketch Plan; A public hearing was scheduled on May 20 to consider comments from the general public concerning the updated Sketch Plan project; On June 10, 2002, Town Council passed Resolution No. 13, Series of 2002, concerning the update Sketch Plan application and granted the Applicant permission to proceed to a Preliminary Plan application. Preliminary Plan process: On November 29, 2002, the Applicant submitted the original Preliminary Plan application; The original Preliminary Plan application requested approval to: 1) permit the redevelopment and the expansion of the Snowmass Center office / commercial spaces from 53,094 to 69,591 square feet; 2) increase the amount of the parking facilities at the Center from approximately 191 to a total of 301 spaces; 3) develop 24 multi-family restricted housing units and 50 market-rate, 1/8 fractional ownership multi-family units;

Public Hearings were conducted during meetings held before the Planning Commission on January 15, 29, February 5, 19, and 26, March 5, and 12, 2003 to review the application, receive public comment and to identify major issues; During the middle of Planning Commission's review, a joint Planning Commission and Town Council work session was scheduled on February 3, 2005; On March 19, 2003, the Planning Commission passed Resolution No. 1, Series of 2003, which provided their recommendations to the Town Council;

On February 16, 2006, the Applicants also submitted a supplemental set of amendments in a conceptual manner concerning additional commercial space and a relocation of a proposed access drive to the modified single-family area, which was not deemed complete for review, but was sent informally with a staff report to Town Council for consideration; On February 21, 2006, the Town Council heard an introductory presentation by the Applicant of the application, including the first and second set of amendments; It was determined at that time that another joint meeting between Town Council and the Planning was not needed because a joint meeting was previously held between the Town Council and the Planning Commission on February 5, 2003 to overview the initial Preliminary Plan application submittal of October 22, 2002; On March 20, 2006, by Resolution No. 6, Series of 2006, the Council only accepted for review the amendments related to the aerial connection, the woodbridge and the subdivision exemption for the proposed lot line adjustment within the realm of the Preliminary Plan review; On April 3, 2006, the Applicant submitted a formal second amendment to the Preliminary Plan, involving the single-family area known as Brush Creek Estates; On April 17, 2006, Council accepted the second amendment to the Preliminary Plan application related to Brush Creek Estates and directed that, a) the Town Council continue their review of the changes to the single-family area per the second amendment request without the review and recommendation by the Planning Commission, and b) that subsequent amendments to the Snowmass Center Preliminary Plan application involving the Center site be submitted by the Applicant in a comprehensive and contemporaneous fashion to adequately evaluate the entire application for the Center site as a whole; Town Council began an initial review of the completed follow up reviews of the Brush Creek Estates portion of the application (second amendment) on June 5, 2006; On May 17, 2006, the Applicant submitted a formal subdivision exemption application pursuant to the first amendment acceptance, concurrent with other proposed amendments to the Preliminary Plan application which were under review; As part of the requested third amendment to the Center application accepted by Town Council via Resolution No. 38, Series of 2006 (see below), the subdivision exemption plan was revised to alter the alignment of the lot line adjustment and the parcel combinations; On August 7, 2006, Council approved the subdivision exemption for the modified lot line adjustment, for financial purposes per the Applicant, via Resolution No. 26, Series of 2006; (Note: The exemption plat has yet to be executed and recorded); On June 23, 2006, the Applicant submitted a formal third amendment to the Preliminary Plan application, this time involving the Center site and a comprehensive update of the application as a whole; the third amendment application was updated as complete as of July 24, 2006; the application requests approval to: 1) permit the redevelopment and the expansion of the Snowmass Center office/commercial spaces from 53,094 to 85,002 square feet; 2) increase the amount of the parking 4 facilities at the Center from approximately 191 to a total of 410 spaces; 3) develop 31 multi-family restricted housing units, 43 market-rate, fractional ownership multi-family units, and 8 market-rate whole ownership multi-family units; The Applicant re-submitted revised plans concerning the Brush Creek Estates single- family area on June 14 and July 13, 2007, in response to review comments, together with the Center's third amendment to the Preliminary Plan; On July 24, 2006, Council accepted the third amendment for review via Resolution No. 38, Series of 2006, and remanded mostly core issue items pertaining to the Center site amendments to the Planning Commission for review and recommendations; It was determined again that a joint meeting of the Town Council and Planning Commission was not needed because a previous joint meeting was held February 5, 2003 to overview the initial Preliminary Plan application submittal of October 2002; Public Hearings were conducted during the Planning Commission review of the third amendment on September 6, 13, 20, and 27, October 4, 18, and November 1, 2006; The Planning Commission passed Resolutions 19, 20 and 21, Series of 2006, on September 27, October 18, and November 1, 2007, respectively, outlining their recommendations to the Town Council on the third amendment; On September 5, 18, and October 9, 2006, the Town Council continued the review of the latest Brush Creek Estates portion of the application while the Planning Commission was undergoing review of the Center site (third amendment); On October 9, 2006, Town Council considered and completed review of draft language for a resolution concerning the Brush Creek Estates single-family area, but did not take action upon a resolution; The Town Council completed review of almost all of the identified core issues concerning the third amendment to the application regarding the Center site beginning November 6 and continuing at public hearings on November 20, December 4, 11 and 18, January 8, 22, and February 5; The remaining core issues to be covered were: a) reviewing Buildings K and L against the block model, b) re- visiting the commercial program/off-street parking, c) necessary facilities, d) re- zonings, d) Comprehensive Plan consistency, e) re-visiting the construction management and phasing plans, f) re-visiting the fiscal impact analysis, and g) overviewing the community purposes; However, the meeting of February 5, 2007 began with the presentation and review of the Applicant's proposed community purposes, and then the hearing was continued to March 5, 2007; At the Council meetings on March 5 and April 2, the public hearings were continued once again, the latest to May 21 due to Applicant's ongoing coordination and feasibility study of possibly amending their application once again; May 21, 2007: The Applicant has requested another continuation of the public hearing to June 18, 2007 in efforts to complete their modified application.

Request for Proposals Request for Proposal for the Town of Snowmass Village Hotel Report May 16, 2007 I.Introduction The purpose of this request is to solicit proposals to evaluate a proposed hotel for one of three commercial areas in the Town of Snowmass Village, Colorado. The Town of Snowmass Village (TOSV) is faced with new growth in hotel, retail and commercial area's. While it is imperative to the Town's success to have conferences and group bookings, we understand the need to accommodate our individual traveler during the ski season and summer months. It is important for us to learn what hotel types and hotel business models will benefit TOSV in occupancy levels, revenue from food and beverage and ancillary activities. Specifically the Town is seeking to determine if a specific hotel brand proposed by the primary developer (Related West-Pac) meets a specific condition of approval related to the Base Village Planned Unit Development (PUD). Secondarily, the Town would like to know more generally whether this hotel brand is a good match for Snowmass and will help increase year-round occupancy for the Town. There is both the need to evaluate a specific hotel brand proposed by the developer of Base Village and to also evaluate whether a particular hotel brand will be successful in Snowmass in the context of three redeveloping commercial areas. The three commercial areas are Base Village, Town Center and West Village-see map attached. (Attachment#1) These areas have the potential for new hotels, conference center and commercial facilities. Attachment#2 is the map of Base Village, which outlines all of the newly planned development. This RFP is intended to solicit proposals from consultants that specialize in Hotel consulting to provide the best recommendations to the Town of Snowmass Village to bring maximize lodging occupancy and sales tax generation for our community. This hotel property will also provide a strong sense of place in the base village development and contribute to the overall economic vitality of this commercial area. II.Goals 1) Determine if the Viceroy Hotel Brand owned by Kor group meets Condition 7 of the Ordinance 21, as listed below under"History": specifically, in relation to the term "nationally recognized hotel chain". 2) Determine what benefits will the Viceroy Hotel Brand specifically and a boutique hotel generally brings to the Town compared to a nationally recognized hotel chain. Conversely what are the negatives of a Viceroy Hotel Brand compared to other national brands. If the Town intends for this 1 building to be a conference hotel with over 9,500 square feet of meeting space and 10,800 square feet of ancillary conference support floor space approved for the hotel in the Planned Unit Development, discuss the pros and the cons of having a boutique brand run the hotel versus a nationally recognized brand such as a Westin, Hyatt, or Hilton. 3) What industry information/trends/specific market issues should the Town be aware of in evaluating a hotel brand for this site. Specifically: a. Are there national trends that should be considered related to condominium hotels. b. Are there emerging tools to ensure condominium hotels are rented and have a higher occupancy. c. How should the Town consider specific hotel brands in the context of three commercial villages that are owned by a single developer. The final commercial area to be planned and developed (West Village) is tentatively slated for a conference center. d. What other hotel brands should be considered specifically for this site and potentially for the other two commercial areas in Snowmass. e. Based on the Average Daily Rate (ADR) of the Viceroy, is this hotel brand consistent with the demographic of the guest visiting Snowmass and how does that ADR compare with existing lodging product in Snowmass. f. What would your comparative analysis reveal for fractional, condominium, and wholly owned hotel operations in relation to long term viability, occupancy rates and conference activity. What would your comparative analysis reveal for"nationally recognized hotel chains" (or brands) versus "boutique" or individualized hotel operations in relation to long-term viability, occupancy rates and conference activity. III. Scope of Work 1) Provide an electronic report to the Town Manager for his review that specifically addresses the three goal areas mentioned above.

Haber provided a power point presentation that was color coded for road closures and delays. Haber reviewed potential projects through 2012 and noted that Mike O'Connor representing Base Village and Hunt Walker representing Town projects and right of way impacts are present to discuss the projects in more detail. Hunt Walker reviewed all of the impacts on right-of-ways throughout the town and the dates of project start dates. Steve Alldredge from the Snowmass Sun stated he thought that Town Council was not building the welcome building this year. Council Member Mordkin would like to bring the "Check Point Charlie" portion and the Welcome Center back for discussion on the March 5, 2007. For the public staff clarified the "boulevard" this is the section of Brush Creek road are islands. Council Member Wilkinson is asking that cars do not get backed up in to the round a bout he also asked if the road can be wider for the purpose of cyclists. Walker reminded Council they took out the paved shoulders, which would have made the road wider. Transit Manager Dave Peckler made an appeal for Regional Transportation to be given a made priority by the flagging staff to make connections at Highway 82. At this time Haber handed off the upper village presentation to Mike O' Connor of Brush Creek Development LLC. O'Connor reviewed the slide for the upper village beginning with the Brush Creek road and going up Carriage Way including Wood Road. O'Connor stated that the Lower Carriage Way will be completely closed beginning April 17th, 2007 after the ski area closes. He noted that there would be 10 minutes delays on Wood Road due to curb and gutter and replacement of all the asphalt that was laid last year. Council Member Lewis asked if O'Connor was working with Water and Sanitation construction in coordinating the closing of Lower Carriage Way. O'Connor stated at this time he has not seen any design work from Water 02-26-07tc Page 6 of 11 and Sanitation. Dave Spence representing the Water and Sanitation Board spoke to this project and said the design is being worked on and their engineer would like to see the sewer removed from under snowmelt road. The problem is the size of the hole that has to be dug for water and then another for the sewer. Mercatoris did not feel this issue could be solved during this discussion and asked that staff and the appropriate parties continue discussions on this subject at a later time. Peckler again stated concerns with Regional Transportation and that buses would not be able to turn around at the Mall when lower Carriage Road is closed. Council asked that staff look in to a safer Brush Creek Trail connection. Steve Alldredge Snowmass Sun stated with the road and bike path closed all employee housing occupants will be on Brush Creek Road. Chris Conrad Planning Director stated these road closures and so on are an amendment to the applicants construction management plan and will come back to Town Council for major concerns Dean Gordon Town Engineer stated the gap section would be closed in spring of 2008, which is not part of Base Village but will be closed to put in the concrete, which is above the Children's Center. Council Member Lewis asked if there was any possible way lower Carriage Way could be open one way for the Weekend June 8 and 9 for the Chili Pepper and Brew Festival. O'Connor stated the road will be open for one-way traffic for this particular event. The schedule on Page 4 or 6 shows Lower Carriage Way open one way with 5 minutes delays. Conclusion and Next Steps present by Jason Haber Staff is requesting specific feedback concerning the proposed 2007-sequencing plan. Are the proposed impacts during the Spring 2007 Shoulder season acceptable? Is lower Carriage Way closure acceptable as proposed? Is Wood Road activity and duration acceptable as proposed? Base Village will return on March 5th agenda to discuss their updated CMP for2007. Carey Shanks representing Related West Pac asked O'Connor what the impact would be if the road was not closed but was open to one-way traffic through the summer. O'Connor stated that the Town would like to have the concrete poured way before September so this is not an acceptable option. The Town is hiring a new Construction Management person that will be handling all complaints related to road closures and timely delays. 02-26-07tc Page 7 of 11 The CCIMP, coordination will be village Wide and during the no shoulder season there will only be two stops village wide. Walker noted this was decided on to not impact guests. Mordkin understands what Haber has submitted but noted that we are still not quite there yet his idea of the end result is a mechanism to determine when one project is done and when another should start or not start. O'Connor stated that the reason this is being presented today it gets challenging due to the additional projects coming on when approved. This process is very fluid and changes all the time. Mordkin reminded O'Connor that this is a Town project and a set of rules that the Town will set. Sparhawk stated in April that what Town Council was anticipating was construction threshold. Walker explained that the CCIMP would be a planning tool and each approval will be under this plan not an overall. Carey Shanks from Related West Pac is working with Haber and he asked Mordkin what the mechanism is, the concept is the community can only bear so much at one time. Mark Vogel Resident of Snowmass noted he would rather the road be closed two months versus dragging out for five to six months. Dean Gordon Town Engineer does not see stops moving up the road and he feels the delay will be minimal. Town Council took a break at this time. Item No 12 RESOLUTION NO. 11 SERIES OF 2007 - CONCURRING REVIEW CONSIDERATION OF A RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING CONCURRING REVIEW OF THE SNOWMASS CENTER PUD AND CLUB COMMONS II PRELIMINARY PUD APPLICATIONS.

Jim Wahlstrom Senior Planner stated that the Snowmass Center has continued the Public Hearing to the March 5th meeting and the Club Commons II has gone through the Planning Commission and has a Public Hearing also scheduled for March 5th. Town Attorney John Dresser stated 02-26-07tc Page 8 of 11 the Municipal Code has a mechanism that only one major PUD process can come before Town Council at a time. Item No. 13 PUBLIC HEARING AND SECOND READING - ORDINANCE NO. 03, SERIES OF 2007 AN ORDINANCE CONSIDERING AN APPLICATION BY THE INTRAWEST/BRUSH CREEK DEVELOPMENT COMPANY LLC REGARDING A MINOR PUD AMENDMENT TO THE BASE VILLAGE PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT Mayor Mercatoris made the motion to approve Second Reading of Ordinance No. 3, Series of 2007, Sally Sparhawk seconded the motion.

Conrad explained the sizes Coffey noted that the unit mix has improved and the size and storage is very adequate. His concern is mostly having studios for sale. Wilkinson asked how this fits in with the overall construction management and where does this fit in? Mordkin stated that the benefit was the digging of 13A and 13B will be done all at one time. O'Connor stated the is an escalation of the construction, Mordkin has concerns about staff comments at the bottom of page 35. This is explained in the matrix on page 37 PUD guide identifies minimum square foot and staff is comfortable in proceeding with only 92 square feet difference in the matrix. The correct number to be used is 18,918 is and it is in the Employee Housing Agreement. Lewis questioned the Clinic relocation and asked where that would be next year the applicant responded, it will not going away and the applicant is looking at Fanny Hill or possibly an area below the Cirque. Planning Director Conrad reviewed some changes to the Ordinance prior to second reading approval. On page 40 specifically line 25, change to 2 02-26-07tc Page 9 of 11 units as discussed, page 41 of the packet line 81 paragraph four, providing 2 rather than the four as stated.

In response to Council Member Lewis and resident Margery Fridstein questions pertaining to mail pick up in the mall (remote boxes) and home delivery, Mayor Mercatoris stated he spoke with Sandy Flowers from the Post Office and she will look in to both issues but the home delivery situation will probably make the Post Office go away. Mayor Mercatoris will update Town Council as information is obtained. 02-26-07tc Page 10 of 11 Item No. 15 APPROVAL OF MEETING MINUTES FOR 01/03/07 - Special Meeting 01/22/07 - Regular Meeting 02/05/07 - Regular Meeting Mayor Mercatoris made the motion to approve the Meeting Minutes for January 3, 2007 Special Meeting and January 22, 2007 Regular Meeting, Mordkin seconded the motion.

No. 04, Series of 2007 Exhibit A, 10 Pages Signage Criteria Manual Snowmass Base Village Snowmass Village, Colorado First Amendment 2.15.07 Second Amendment 2.16.07 1 Overall Theme 2 3 The overall theme and character ofBase Village has been inspired by the local history, but not 4 stuck in the past. It integrates the old with the new to promote creativity and eccentricity. The 5 theme embraces the soul, passion and energy ofthe community and is the love ofart in allforms 6 and textures. The element ofsoul drawsfrom history not only literally but also figuratively while 7 concurrently embracing the artistic sense ofthe community. The theme will reflect the future 8 and the past through new and exciting ideas and non-conventional ways oflooking at traditional 9 materials, textures and color. 10 11 Classy but not classic, inspired and exceptional, energetic and lively, Base Village will have 12 something that is unique, timeless and diverse promoting stimulation around every corner that 13 will appeal to all ofyour senses and draw you to discover what the Snowmass Base Village has 14 to offer. 15 16 Puraose and Desien Guidelines for Snowmass Base Villaee 17 18 These guidelines have been created as a design control for implementation of Owner and Tenant signage 19 and graphics at Snowmass Base Village. The purpose of this document is to provide Owners and Tenants 20 with a basic understanding of the importance of style, quality and limitations of what is allowable and 21 preferred in creating a clear and cohesive sign image in Snowmass Base Village's commercial 22 neighborhoods. The following commercial sign program involves a series of sign standards that will 23 compliment architecture,animate and enhance the guest resort experience, excite guests and most 24 importantly,communicate the specialty of each shop while reinforcing pedestrian scale by controlling 25 number, size, mounting height and location of signs. 26 To make the greatest contribution to the visual image of Snowmass Base Village,this signage program 27 addresses the need for Owner identity, Tenant presence, promotes Guest way-finding, and emphasizes 28 that the appearance of all design elements must be appropriate and of consistent quality.

A few comments I would like to have on the record: Item 4 Construction management pg 4 One lane closures on Brush Creek Road are not acceptable for either the Chili Pepper Brewfest or June 28th(the date of the first Free Summer Concert). In addition, Lower Carriageway MUST also be open AT LEAST in one direction to facilitate bus traffic on June 28th. Item 10 Snowmass Mountain The restaurant on Sam's Knob was to be operational for the 07-08 ski season. I do not support extending the deadline just to bring the ASC into compliance with their current schedule. I have previously offered compassion to the ASC for the USFS decision to reject their first building proposal. However, this does not change the facts. The planning commission recommends granting the extension with no penalty. UNACCEPTABLE. The days of the "token wrist slap" are over. I advocate leaving the current deadline and finding an acceptable mitigation to this gross default on the ordinance. Perhaps the ASC would like to voluntarily remove their exclusive right to operating a ski rental entity at the base village. This would give us the "warm fuzzies" we so often like to chat about in our town and would provide a much better overall experience for the guest during the construction years if and when the West Village Revitalization were to shut down a portion or all of their competition. I digress...deny the extension. Those were the two big ones for me.
