MEMORANDUM TO: Snowmass Village Town Council FROM: Planning Department DATE: August 20, 2007 SUBJECT: (AN ORDINANCE CONCERNING DEVELOPMENT ON SLOPES GREATER THAN THIRTY PERCENT (309/6) WITHIN LOT 28, PARCEL G-THE PINES, EAST VILLAGE PUD) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-50, Geologic hazard areas, steep slopes and ridgeline protection areas,Town of Snowmass Village Municipal Code ("Municipal Code"), Applicant is seeking approval to construct a single-family residence on slopes greater than thirty percent (30%) within the platted building envelope of Lot 28, Parcel G-The Pines, East Village Planned Unit Development. Applicant/Owner: Sanford Miller Representative: Anne Marie McPhee, Attorney Planners: Bob Nevins, Town of Snowmass Village Chris Conrad, Planning Director PREVIOUS DISCUSSION:At the August 6th Council meeting, Chris Conrad, Planning Director, presented the Lot 28, The Pines proposal along with background information concerning previous subdivision approvals and changes to the Municipal Code that related to the issue of steep slopes. In attendance on behalf of Sanford Miller, Applicant/ owner were: Chuck Strasser, Business partner; Steve Connor, Attorney; and Craig Burger, Engineer. Town Council made comments and asked questions regarding the application: that it met the Review Standards; that it was not feasible to avoid 30% slope; that based on the geologist report the proposed development may increase slope stability; that the owner did not conduct a thorough due-diligence investigation prior to purchasing the property; and what is the appropriate degree of slope at which to prohibit development-is it 30%or some other percentage; and would it be considered a "taking" if the request to construct a home on this site were denied? After discussion, Council adopted first reading of the Ordinance 4 in favor and 1 opposed. OWNER'S REPRESENTATIVES AND RESPONSE: Applicant/owner, Sanford Miller, has authorized Anne Marie McPhee of Oates, Knezevich, Gardenswartz & Kelly, P.C., to be his representative at this meeting. Attorney Stephen R. Connor has submitted a supplemental letter on behalf of the owner and it is included as Attachment 1. I.PURPOSE AND ACTIONS REQUESTED OF COUNCIL Since steep slopes are prone to erosion and soil instability, are difficult to revegetate and may also be subject to geologic hazards, Municipal Code Section 16A-4-50 ensures that development does not occur on slopes that are excessively steep, unstable or hazardous. The current Municipal Code prohibits development on slopes greater than thirty percent (30%), except in certain circumstances. Development may be allowed on lots and within approved building envelopes containing areas of slopes greater than thirty percent(30%) if the lot was subdivided prior to January 1, 1987 or other circumstances. Lot 28, The Pines was platted October 15, 1994 and the building envelope contains slopes thirty percent(30%) or greater. Pursuant to Municipal Code Section 16A-4-50(d)(4) Other circumstances, Town Council may authorize development on slopes greater than thirty percent (30%) for this type of situation. Applicant, owner of Lot 28, The Pines, is seeking authorization from Town Council to construct a single-family house within the existing, platted building envelope on slopes thirty percent(30%) or greater. Town Council shall approve, approve with conditions or deny second reading of the Ordinance. Note: Action requires three-quarters (3/4) of the members of the Town Council present and voting to approve the Ordinance. There are no public notice requirements for this type of application. II. SUMMARY OF PROJECT DESCRIPTION The undeveloped single-family lot contains approximately 37,766 square feet 0.867 acres) within the MU/PUD Mixed Used Planned Unit Development zone district. The allowable FAR is 5,500 square feet and the maximum height for principal buildings is twenty-eight(28) feet. The lot is bounded on three(3) sides by Mountain Crest Lane. Applicant is requesting approval to construct a new, single-family residence within the existing, platted building envelope (see Attachment 1-Land Use Application). The approved envelope contains slopes thirty percent(30%) or greater. The steep slopes are located within the central portion of the site so it is not practical to entirely relocate or reconfigure the building envelope onto gentler slopes. Natural slopes on the site are between fifteen and fifty percent (15-50%). III. BACKGROUND The East Village Planned Unit Development was platted in 1994 and includes The Pines and Two Creeks Subdivisions. The Pines contains fifty-one (51) single- family homesites ranging in size from 0.472 to 15.772 acres. All lots have a designated Major Structure Location Envelope (building envelope)within which all site improvements are to be located. The Site Characteristics Plan for the East Village PUD identified those areas having thirty percent (30%) or greater slopes; Lot 28 was shown as having no steep slopes (see Attachment 2). Town Council has approved other recent requests to develop on slopes greater than thirty percent(30%) within previously approved building envelopes on lots subdivided after January 1, 1987. These approvals include: Lot 34, The Pines TC Ordinance No. 14, Series of 2003) and Lot 36,The Pines (TC Ordinance No. 14, Series of 2005). IV. APPLICABLE REGULATIONS Municipal Code Section 16A-4-50(d)(4) Other circumstances states "The Town Council may authorize development on slopes greater than thirty percent (30%) in circumstances not listed above if at least three-quarters (3/4) of the members of the Town Council present and voting approve an ordinance finding that: a. The development is unable to avoid the steep slopes, and the reasons therefore; and b. On the basis of competent engineering or geologic reports and data and testimony received, the design and/or construction techniques that will be incorporated within the development will satisfactorily mitigate the risk of potential harm to the public health, safety or welfare. Additionally, Municipal Code Section 16A-4-50(d)(5) Engineer's opinion requires "For the Town to allow development under any of the above cir- cumstances, the applicant shall provide an opinion from a professional geotechnical engineer licensed in the State stating that: a. The slope is not prone to instability or failure; or b. The proposed development will not cause greater slope instability or increase the potential for slope failure, and that therefore, there will be no significant risk that damage to adjacent property will result from the proposed construction." A Slope Stability Assessment by Craig A. Burger, P.E. of CTL Thompson, Inc. is attached as Exhibit A. The proposed Site/Grading Plan and Section are included as Exhibit B. V. DISCUSION ITEMS: ALTERNATIVES AND IMPLICATIONS A. Is it feasible to develop a single-family home within the platted building envelope; have the development and environmental impacts been sufficiently addressed so that slope instability and safety hazards are minimized? i. Option 1-Utilize existing platted building envelope. Pros: Based on the site geologic conditions, construction of the proposed residence is feasible with minimal risks; the proposed building "steps" down the hillside to minimize cuts/fills; and visual impacts from Mountain Crest Lane are minimized. Cons: Building area contains some areas having thirty percent 30%)or greater slopes. B. Is it practical to relocate or reconfigure the existing platted building envelope to minimize development and environmental impacts without increasing slope instability and safety hazards? ii. Option 2-Relocate or reconfigure existing, platted building envelope. Pros: May decrease the total area of thirty percent(30%) slopes within the revised building envelope. Cons: A revised building envelope would still contain slopes greater than thirty percent(30%); the building would still be required to "step" down the hillside to minimize cuts/fills; visual impacts to adjoining lots may be increased; and a replatting of the building envelope would be required. C. What if it is not possible to construct a single-family home within the platted building envelope or elsewhere on the property on slopes less than 30%; and what if the development and environmental impacts have not been sufficiently addressed to minimize slope instability and safety hazards? iii. Option 3-Reduce the allowable FAR of 5,500 A within the existing or relocated building envelope. Pros: Minimize the impacts to 30%slopes by allowing a smaller more compact residential footprint; minimize cuts/fills by requiring the home to "step" down the slope; and lessen the visual impacts from Mountain Crest Lane. Cons: A reduction in FAR may be viewed as a "taking" appraised actual values for homes in The Pines is currently about 830/sf); and building area may still contain some areas having thirty percent(30%) or greater slopes. iv. Option 4-Deny the request to construct a home on the lot. Pros: Retains the property in its current undeveloped state. Cons: Not allowing a home to be built on a previously approved lot may be viewed as a"taking" (appraised actual values for undeveloped lots in The Pines is currently about$2,750,000); the property may still contain some areas of slope instability and may pose a risk to adjacent properties. VI. STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS AND FINDINGS For Town Council to authorize development on slopes thirty percent (30%) or greater within a building envelope of a lot platted after January 1, 1987, an Applicant must satisfy the standards set forth in Municipal Code Section 16A-4- 50(d)(4) as detailed in Section IV above. Based on a review of the application, the proposed plans/sections and engineer's letter, Staff makes the following findings: a. The development is unable to avoid the steep slopes, and that is impractical to relocate or reconfigure the building envelope to lessen the amount of area with thirty percent(30%) slopes or minimize the impacts; and b. The development will satisfactorily mitigate the risk of potential harm to the public health, safety or welfare based on the information and plans provided, Therefore, Staff recommends: Approval of second reading of the Ordinance by three-quarters (3/4) of the members of the Town Council present and voting. VII. NEXT STEPS If Option 1 passes-the Ordinance is approved and Applicant may apply for a building permit. If Option 2 passes-establish the required information that needs to be submitted; amend the application; and table second reading of the Ordinance to a date certain. If Option 3 passes-deny second reading of the Ordinance; and establish the appropriate value for the decreased development rights. Attachments: Attachment 1-Letter by Stephen R.

August 14, 2007 John C. Dresser, Jr., Town Attorney Via Email Town of Snowmass Village Post Office Box 5010 Snowmass Village, Colorado 81615 RE: Sanford Miller application under Section 16A-4-50, Pines Lot 28 Dear John: I am writing to supplement the information that I provided in my July 31, 2007 letter to Bob Nevins,Assistant Town Planner. At the August 6, 2007 Town Council Meeting,the Town Council approved Sanford Miller's request for approval to construct a detached single family dwelling on Pines Lot 28 within the platted Major Structure Location Envelope within areas that exceeded 30% slope. Discussions occurred at the Town Council Meeting between members of the Town Council regarding the legitimacy of Mr. Miller's application and the appropriateness of approving it. On the basis of these discussions, I feel that it is necessary to provide additional information to you and the Town Council regarding the necessity to approve Mr. Miller's application. A brief summary of the basis for Mr. Miller application and his compliance with the applicable review standards contained in the Municipal Code is appropriate. The pertinent provisions of Section 16A-4-50 are and the compliance there with by Mr. Miller are as follows: 4) Other circumstances. The Town Council may authorize development on slopes greater than thirty percent (30%) in circumstances not listed above if at least three-quarters (3/4) of the members of the Town Council present and voting approve an ordinance finding that: a. The development is unable to avoid the steep slopes, and the reasons therefor; and John C. Dresser, Jr., Town Attorney August 14, 2007 Page 2 Compliance: The use by right on is for a detached single family dwelling unit with a 5500 square foot FAR. Due to the topographic limitations within the Major Structure Location Envelope it is not feasible to avoid 30% slopes to exercise the authorised use. The topographic condition was not created by Mr. Miller or his consumer predecessors in title. The approval of Ordinance No. 6, Series of 1994 establishes the right to develop a detached single family dwelling unit within the approved and platted Major Structure Location Envelope. b. On the basis of competent engineering or geologic reports and data and testimony received, the design and/or construction techniques that will be incorporated within the development will satisfactorily mitigate the risk of potential harm to the public health, safety or welfare. Compliance: The CTL Thompson report satisfies the requirements of Section 16A-4-50(d)(5) and states that the construction of the proposed detached single family dwelling with the incorporation of the design recommendations will increase the factor of safety for the slope,thereby satisfactorily mitigating the risk of potential harm to the public health, safety and welfare. 5) Engineer's opinion. For the Town to allow development under any of the above circumstances, the applicant shall provide an opinion from a professional geotechnical engineer licensed in the State stating that: a. The slope is not prone to instability or failure; or Compliance: The CTL Thompson report states that the "...the slope is not prone to instability or failure ... ." b. The proposed development will not cause greater slope instability or increase the potential for slope failure, and that therefore, there will be no significant risk that damage to adjacent property will result from the proposed construction. Compliance: The CTL Thompson report states that"...the proposed development will not cause greater slope instability or increase the potential for slope failure, and that therefore, there will be no John C. Dresser, Jr., Town Attorney August 14, 2007 Page 3 significant risk that damage to adjacent property will result from the proposed construction ..." In addition, the author of the report, Craig A. Burger, P.E.,stated at the July 9th Town Council meeting that it was his opinion that the slope conditions would actually be made more stable due to the construction of the detached single family dwelling as proposed by Mr. Miller than in their current natural condition due to the removal of the weight of existing soil and lessening the stress on the Town road side retaining wall. All review criteria for approval of Mr. Miller's application by Ordinance No. 14, Series of 2007 has unquestionably been met and effectively exceeded by the testimony Craig Burger in which he states that slope stability will actually be increased by the construction of Mr. Miller's proposed detached single family dwelling. The review criteria contained in the Municipal Code are very specific and do not require an examination of whether Mr. Miller or his predecessor's in title knew of the existence of 30%slope conditions within the platted building envelope or did or could have determined the 30% slopes existed in the platted building envelope by a due diligence investigation prior to the purchase of the lot. Unique circumstances involving Mr. Miller's lot exist as follows: 1. the existence of a platted Major Structure Location Envelope; and 2. within a platted lot; and 3. vested zoning for a detached single family dwelling; and 4. Ordinance No. 6, Series of 1994 approving the lot, the Major Structure Location Envelope and the zoning; and 5. no changed circumstance has occurred since the adoption of the Ordinance that would warrant or authorize an amendment to Ordinance No. 6 regarding Lot 28. In fairness, Mr. Miller's application must be approved by the Town Council on second reading. The 5`h Amendment to Constitution of The United States, contained in the Bill of Rights, expressly states that no private property may be taken for public use without just compensation. This is a basic tenet of American democracy and applies most particularly to the situation at hand regarding Mr. Miller's lot. There is no compelling public purpose that would authorize the Town Council to deny Mr. Miller's application,especially due to his compliance with all applicable review standards set forth in Section 16A-4-50. A denial of Mr. Miller's application effectively is a depravation of the use of his property that would give rise to a claim for compensation from the Town as a taking. The law of regulatory depravation of property rights is well settled. When an John C. Dresser, Jr., Town Attorney August 14, 2007 Page 4 owner of real property has been deprived of all economically beneficially use of a property, the property owner has suffered a taking within the meaning of the 5`h Amendment. This principle is reenforced and reiterated in the leading United States Supreme Court case in area Lucas vs. South Carolina Costal Council, 505 US 1003 (1992). In Lucas the owner of a residential lot with the intention to build a single family home, similar to those already existing on immediately adjacent lots, was denied a permit for construction. The denial of the permit effectively sterilized the property, as would be the denial of Mr. Miller's application. The United States Supreme Court found that Lucas had been called upon to sacrifice all economically beneficial uses of the property and was left with an economically sterile property that constituted a taking. When a taking occurs the government is obligated to adequately and fairly compensate the land owner for the loss in a manner similar to that of eminent domain. A denial of Mr. Miller's application will mean that his property has been taken and it will be the obligation of the Town to compensate Mr. Miller for his loss. Mr. Miller is appreciative of the action of the Town Council upon first reading and respectfully requests that the Town Council understand the unique circumstances which relate to his property. An understanding of the circumstances and Mr. Miller's compliance with the applicable Municipal Code review standards unquestionably provides the basis for a super majority approval of Ordinance No. 14, Series of 2007 on second reading by the Town Council on August 20, 2007. As stated in the staff memoranda to the Town Council, an approval of Mr. Miller's application is recommended. Very Truly Yours, OATES, KNEZEVICH, GARDENSWARTZ& pKELLY, P.C. By: Stephen R.

Box 6030 Snowmass Village, CO 81615 Attention: Mr. Jim Benson . Subject:Slope Stability Assessment Lot 28, The Pines Snowmass Village, Colorado Project No. GSO4889-120 This letter addresses existing slopa stability conditions on Lot 28 of The Pines and the effects of planned construction of the residence on slope stability as required by the Town of Snowmass Village Code, Article IV, Division 1, Section 16A4-50 (5) a and b. We have reviewed site plans by Thomas Epps Architect dated March 23, 2007) and developed building sections for the residence. We previously conducted a soils and foundation investigation for the proposed residence (CTL I T Project No. GSO4889-120, dated November 29, 2006). The residence will be a two-story structure benched into the natural slope of the site. Maximum planned excavations into the natural slopes are about 13 feet below existing ground surface. A site retaining wall and the back foundation wall will be designed to retain the hillside. If plans change significantly from those described above, we should be contacted for review and additional analysis, as needed. Soils on Lot 28 of The Pines consist of sandy clay with shale fragments above Mancos Shale bedrock. Some shale fragments are likely boulder-sized. The sandy clay and shale fragments were weathered in-place from the Mancos Shale or transported down slope by gravity. The bedding in the Mancos Shale dips at about 15 degrees down to the north-northeast in the area. The natural slopes on the site are between 15 and 50 percent. An existing retaining wall about 8 feet high is below the building envelope on the lot. There are not indications of seepage or shallow ground water on the hillside. The site plan provided, sections developed, and information from our exploratory borings indicate that the uphill building cuts will likely bottom in the overburden clay soil. The dip angle of the bedrock below the clay is not 234 Center Drive I Glenwood Springs, Colorado 81601 Talanhnne: 970-945-2809 Fax: 970-945-7411 TC Ordinanc/ AeEE No.14, Series of 2007 Page 2 of 2) unfavorable for site development. In our opinion, the proposed residence on Lot 28, The Pines is feasible based on the geologic conditions. A representative of CTL I Thompson, Inc. should review the cut slope conditions at the time of construction for additional slope stability information. Excavation retention will likely be required to construct the residence. The uphill building walls and retaining walls should be designed to retain the entire cut slope including height to achieve positive slope away from the buildings for at least 5 feet. If design or excavation conditions change from those described above we should be contacted to re-evaluate our recommendations presented in this letter. Our slope stability analysis indicates the existing slope is at a factor of safety against slope movement of about 1.5. Removing soil weight from the slope and construction of the residence will likely increase the factor of safety to about 2.0. In our opinion, the slope is not prone to instability or failure and the proposed development will not cause greater slope instability or increase the potential for slope failure, and that therefore there will be no significant risk that damage to adjacent property will result from the proposed construction. We did not evaluate the construction or design of the existing retaining wall below the building envelope. The site plan indicates that the residence is located a sufficient horizontal distance from the retaining wall. We have not evaluated stability of slopes during excavation.

This agreement covers: The goals of the parking agreement relative to the Comprehensive Plan and Ordinance #9 of 1994 (the approval of the ski area expansion onto Burnt Mountain); The distribution of parking within the community and the cap on day use parking of 2,250 spaces, Descriptions of the various permits that allow access to public parking spaces and their respective prices, The regulation of the permit type(s) allowed in a specific parking lot, The designation of the management and maintenance responsibilities of the Town and the Aspen Skiing Company (ASC) in the operation of the parking system. II. BACKGROUND: The Transportation and Police departments met with the ASC staff to review the parking program for next winter. The following issues were discussed and the recommendations were agreed to: 1. The number of parking spaces identified in the agreement will remain about the same as last year until mid-January. In January, some of the parking spaces in the Base Village parking structure may become available for day use. These spaces will replace the temporary parking lot in Lot C, below the Enclave. The number of parking spaces within the town for this winter will be roughly 2,165: a. Number Lots = 1,000 b. Two Creeks Lots = 400 c. Divide Lot = 30 d. Base Village Lot = 150 e. Black Saddle Lot = 150 f. Rodeo Lot = 325 (With 25 Reserved for Recreation Center) g. Rodeo Contestant Area = 80 h. ASC Maintenance Facility = 30. 2. Permit pricing and lot access: Staff is recommending that the permit prices remain the same as last year. Regulation of what lots a permit type is allowed to park in remains the same as last year. Pricing by permit type and regulation of parking by permit type are identified on the second page of the proposed agreement. 3. Charging for parking at the Rodeo lot: The consensus was that it is premature to begin charging for parking in the Rodeo lot (see attached - Memo Parking at Rodeo Grounds). Although the facility at the Rodeo lot is vastly improved, the ability to create an effective park-&-ride program, and other alternatives should be considered before instituting paid parking here. There is concern about being able to provide additional services to the Intercept lot for a park-&-ride program at this time. The recommendations for this winter are: a. Add capacity to the Rodeo lot by creating a connection to the parking spaces in the Rodeo Contestant Area. This would provide 80-100 additional parking spaces (not counting the 25 for the Recreation Center) at the Rodeo lot for big weekends. b. Improve on ASC employees using the Black Saddle parking lot, thereby creating more capacity for day visitors in the Rodeo lot on a daily basis. c. Work with Aspen Valley Ski Club (AVSC) to add bus service for their program. Consider a park-&-ride program from the Intercept lot specifically for their program or the big powder ski days. This may prove difficult to add at a moments notice. 4. Staff also discussed the hours of enforcement of permit parking, and considered extending the hours beyond noon. The focus is on the availability of parking spaces in the Numbered lots in the afternoon. There are concerns about the availability of staff expressed by all the partners. Staff would like to continue enforcement until 12:00 PM for this winter. Observation of the parking during mid-day is warranted.. III. APPLICABLE REGULATIONS: The Town's Municipal Code, Chapter 8, Article ll, Parking Regulations contains outdated permit prices. IV. DISCUSION ITEMS / NEXT STEPS: Council needs to establish the guidelines for the parking program for next winter at this meeting. (Production and delivery of the permit stock will take six weeks.) Key decision points are: A. Determine the amount and distribution of the parking for next winter. B. Determine the permit prices for this winter. C. Agree to the maintenance responsibilities defined in the agreement. V. NEXT STEPS / MAJOR MILESTONES: NA VI. ACTION REQUESTED OF COUNCIL Approve parking agreement as proposed. TOWN OF SNOWMASS VILLAGE AGREEMENT ON PARKING PLAN FOR WINTER 2007/2008 This agreement is entered into this 6th day of August 2007, by and between the Town of Snowmass Village (the "Town") and the Aspen Skiing Company(the "ASC"). RECITALS The Town and the ASC have agreed to share and coordinate the management of parking operations and facilities within Snowmass Village (the "Village") for the winter season of 2007/2008. The ASC owns the land of the parking areas known as lots "Base Village," "Two Creeks," "ASC Maintenance Facility," and "Black Saddle Clubhouse." The Town owns the land for the parking areas known as lots "Numbered," "Rodeo" and "E." Both the Town and ASC agree to observe the parking and transit goals of: the Town's Comprehensive Plan - Ordinance 7 of 1998 (the "Comprehensive Plan"), and the conditions of Ordinance#9 of 1994 ("Ordinance 9"). This parking plan is an effort by both organizations to observe these guidelines and objectives for the betterment of the community as a whole. The Town and the ASC will communicate during the ski season to monitor the traffic and parking activities resulting from this plan. NOW, THEREFORE, the parties hereto agree as follows: 1. This arrangement attempts to comply with the three parking/transit goals and directives of the Comprehensive Plan and Ordinance 9. Agreement on the parking program elements that affect these goals and directives are as follows: u The Town and the ASC agree to continue to monitor the traffic volume on Brush Creek Road, Owl Creek Road and Highline Road. In the past, variations have occurred in the traffic volumes on Brush Creek Road and Owl Creek Road. The variations were not considered significant enough to change the relative "Level of Service" for those roadways as established in the Comprehensive Plan. If the traffic volumes exceed the levels set in the Comprehensive Plan, the Town and the ASC will meet to discuss possible changes to parking fees and parking distribution to bring traffic volumes into acceptable limits. o The Town and the ASC have agreed to a limit of 2,250 public parking spaces managed by the parties, as well as, the parking distribution in the Village. Both parties agree that the allocation of parking numbers is general, and that the flexibility to shift parking spaces between locations is beneficial. With the construction of Base Village, the number of public parking spaces in this agreement will be 2,165 spaces. The distribution of parking spaces in the Village for Winter 2007/08, will be: 1,000 spaces in the Mall area ("Numbered lots"), 400 spaces in East Village Two Creeks"), 30 spaces in Parking Lot E ('Divide lot"), 150 spaces in Base Village lots, 150 spaces at the Black Saddle Clubhouse, 325 spaces in the Rodeo lot of which 25 will be for the Recreation Center, 80 spaces in the Rodeo Contestant area, and 30 spaces at the ASC Maintenance Facility. Parking permit types in this document will be referred to by their historical titles: Day Skier whether a day, week, monthly, and/or seasonal pass), Day Skier High Occupancy Vehicle (" Day Skier HOW), Resident(including restricted resident permits), Guest, Employee (including restricted employee permits for the Upper Village lots 10 - 13), Gold Pass, Senior, Merchant, and Disabled. Permit prices will be consistent with the Town's Municipal Code. The variable pricing of Day Skier permits will generally be between$5 and $15 (up to $20 in the Municipal Code.) The price for Day Skier parking permits will attempt to achieve a parking utilization rate of 85% in the Base Village and Two Creeks lots (as stated in Ordinance 9); so long as the traffic volumes stay within the parameters set in the Comprehensive Plan. Day Skier HOV permits will be free to vehicles with four or more occupants. A Resident 1 permit will be $55. A Resident 2 permit will be $100. A Resident 3 permit will be $185. A Restricted Resident permit will be$35. A Guest permit will be$25 for one week. A Gold Pass permit will be $450. A Senior permit will be $200. An Employee permit will be $45.

Should it appear that the base parking lots will fill, the ASC will post information signs at Highline Road, and at the intersection of Brush Creek Road with Highway 82 indicating which lots are full. The ASC will also make this information available to the public via the radio and public television. 12. Term. The term of this agreement shall be through and until April 30, 2008 or the closing of the Winter 2007/2008 ski season at the Snowmass Ski Area, whichever occurs first. 13. Default and Dispute Resolution. In the event of any default in performance of any obligations hereunder, within 15 days of any default, the non-defaulting party shall give the other written notice of the default. After delivery of notice, the defaulting party shall then have fifteen days in which to cure the default. If the default is not cured within such period, then the non-defaulting party may terminate this agreement after such period. Both parties agree to use reasonable best efforts to informally discuss and attempt to resolve any apparent event of default prior to delivery of notice thereof. The Town of Snowmass Village, Colorado By: Date: Russell Forrest, Town Manager ATTEST: Aspen Skiing Company, Colorado By: Date: Steve Sewell, General Manager Snowmass Ski Area ATTEST: TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT MEMO To: Russ Forrest,Town Manager From: David Peckler,Transportation Director Date: August 1,2007 Re: Parking at Rodeo Grounds The average number of cars parking in the Rodeo lot this last winter was fairly consistent, 245 for January through March. We projected the capacity of the Rodeo lot at 350 cars, given the lot's configuration and use of construction area. Last winter there were 16 days (11%) when the parking exceeded the capacity of 350 cars. This winter staff is looking to create a connection between the Rodeo Lot proper and the contestant parking area on the east side of the arena. I estimated that 80 cars can fit into the contestant area. This would give us a capacity of 380 parking spaces (not counting the 25 for the Recreation Center.) The Aspen Skiing Company has committed to applying additional effort to relocate their employees to the Black Saddle parking lot to further reduce the number of ASC employees using the Rodeo lot. ASC will be looking to improve their service to the Black Saddle parking lot to boost utilization. ASC will also be talking to the Aspen Valley Ski Club(AVSC) about ways to reducing the impact for their program on parking. If the parking garage for Base Village is available at some point this winter, than the pressure for parking at the Rodeo lot will decline to some degree. The group believes that it is important to provide a free park-&ride service. It has been difficult to address the question of free bus service to the Intercept lot. Peak hour demand is taxing both the Village Shuttle and RFTA services already. We are not confident that we can run additional service to the Intercept lot on a continuous basis. During the peak, the free skier shuffles are at capacity by the time they leave Aspen for Snowmass, so there isn't any residual capacity. This is also true of the departures form the Mall. We need more time to resolve the transportation issues of a park-&-ride program from the Intercept lot.We are looking at what is possible during the AVSC weekends.

Recognize a unified brand identity is key to better coordination of marketing efforts, which is key to competing more effectively and with larger, better- funded marketing efforts. Partner collaboration delivers greater share of voice in the marketplace to compete more effectively and efficiently in national and international efforts. Examine the Snowmass brand from multiple perspectives, considering both seasons: Overall Resort Brand Identity Social/FIT Guests Group/Meeting Guests Real Estate Prospects Community Determine the common brand associations held by all stakeholders and desired by various target audiences. Understand the individual goals of partners with interest in a strong future for Snowmass: Town of Snowmass Village Aspen/Snowmass Skiing Company o Related WestPac Other Developers Local Businesses (Particularly Lodges) Community Align the strategies of Snowmass Village partners under a single umbrella brand identity that: o Represents the future brand image of Snowmass in the minds of all stakeholders; o Represents the interests of all partners; o Is cohesive in its usage; and o Allows each partner to maintain individuality towards achievement of their unique, specific goals. COMMITTEE GOAL: Adopt a common brand identifier/mark for Snowmass overall. BRAND MARK DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT Simple is better. Strong lines and letters show up better than thin ones, and clean, simple logos reduce and enlarge much better than complicated ones. The "stylized aspen leaf" should be incorporated to maintain the Aspen/Snowmass brand synergies and further power of a dual resort push. The brand mark should say "something is different, new, better, bolder" than the Snowmass Village you already love. Carry it through collateral, website, signage, et al. Develop a style guide to make sure everyone uses it consistently, i.e. exact colors, typefaces, and design specifications. Think about how it will be used and disseminated - print, embroidery, signage, and so on; test its clarity for different applications. CONSIDERATIONS This is a marketing brand mark for the resort, not a brand mark for the community which is a town called Snowmass Village. Recognizing the resort's current inclusion of the community connection, considerations include: SNOWMASS COLORADO SNOWMASS VILLAGE (COLORADO) Says something is new, Doesn't say something is new, different, take a look at us now! different, take a look at us now. Evokes something larger,Evokes the quaintness, greater than a small Village. friendliness of a small Village hosting a big resort and mountain. The majority of guests AND Has a strong connection with the locals say Snowmass now, not community. Snowmass Village; simple & direct. Is a zip code down the road; Power in the mother website, potential confusion with www.snowmassvillage.com; geography; road signage (some www.snowmass.com is owned by out of our control, i.e. Pitkin ski.com (less direct biz, more County) is already confusing. competitive leakage). Always use ASPENC)SNOWMASS anchor in text. In either case, COLORADO in a brand mark used outside the Valley conjures up an image of a mountain town; without Colorado, there's no sense of place or purpose. Whether Snowmass or Snowmass Village, if the Board adopts the new look with the diamond containing the stylized aspen leaf, replacing the existing logo would require an expense to reprint permanent items - at once or through time. VALUE OF A STRONG SINGULAR BRAND A brand is a set of strong associations people have with a product, place or service. They exist in peoples' minds- not in the product, place or service. These associations are expectations people have for our resort; they are a reflection of our brand personality and attributes. They need to be carried out in everything we all do for greatest success, from marketing to product delivery to guest services and in the way all of us speak about Snowmass every day. COMMITTEE GOAL: Develop an Integrated plan that reviews and builds on existing strategic work with consideration to immediate, two-year and long-term product offering. Revisit target audience work against potentially different or different mix and seasonal balance; competitive analysis with assumptions of competitor future products as well; cap/gap exercise to hone in on key differentiators and identify missing antes and drivers. Collaborate on modifying and disseminating messaging, particularly through the building stages. BOARD DISCUSSION Thoughts regarding proposed unified brand mark Options: Unite with our partners in pursuing a common core brand identity strategy and start by adopting the unified brand mark for everything we do; Adopt the unified brand mark with Colorado under the line and use it for national and regional purposes and replace Colorado in same treatment with Village for local purposes; Keep current logo for everything; or Other COMMITTEE GOAL: With a Board decision, next steps include detailing marketing usage and various applications, engaging others as it relates to their specific needs& uses, exploring addition of department/organizational designations as appropriate, development of a brand book, and timelines for partner implementation - full-on or phased-in depending on existing commitments. A presentation to Council to share Board decision is recommended. BOARD DECISION: o The Marketing, Special Events& Group Sales Board voted 7-0 in favor of adopting the unified brand mark with Colorado under the line and use it for national and regional purposes and replace Colorado in same treatment with Village for local purposes.

The Town Council finds that: 60 61 1) The Applicant submitted the application for the Special Review in accordance with the 62 provisions of the Municipal Code. 63 64 2) The application provided the"Minimum Contents"required pursuant to Sections 16A- 65 5-220 and 230, and included written and graphic materials in sufficient detail to deem 66 the application complete for initial review. 67 68 3) Supplemental information, amendments and addendums to the application, 69 acceptable for submission, have been supplied by the Applicant during the review 70 process for consideration mainly in response to Town Staff and Planning Commission 71 comments and concerns, but also to identify interim temporary-type facilities for the 72 Sam's Knob area. 73 74 4) The amendments to the application presented to Town Council on August 6,2007 are 75 allowed and do not require remand to the Planning Commission, and the application 76 was permitted to proceed for complete review by the Town Council. 77 78 5) All public hearing notification requirements,as specified within Section 16A-5-60(b)of 79 the Municipal Code, have been satisfied. 80 81 6) The Applicant has sufficiently and acceptably submitted the Special Review application 82 pursuant to Condition#11 in Ordinance No.2, Series of 2005, and restated in the PUD 83 Guide,the required installation of a replacement Sam's Knob restaurant facility with a 84 minimum of 125 indoor seats and an outdoor deck open to the general public. 85 86 7) The United States Forest Service(USFS) has preliminarily consented to the design of 87 the proposed replacement restaurant building pursuant to a letter dated November 8, 88 2006 in the original application notebook and by separate correspondence dated July 89 27,2007 concerning the revisions to the application that are acceptable authorizations 90 in order to conduct a complete review the application by the Town. 91 92 8) Subject to addressing the recommendations in Section Three of this resolution, the 93 Special Review application, as more particularly described in attached Exhibit"A;'and 94 incorporated herein by reference, is consistent with Section 16A-5-230, Special 95 Review, of the Municipal Code, because: 96 97 a) The proposal is consistent with the "Recreation" designation on the Future Land 98 Use Map of the Town of Snowmass Village Comprehensive Plan; 99 b) The proposal is consistent with the "Recreation" zone district for Snowmass 100 Mountain approved via Ordinance No. 2, Series of 2006, ("Ordinance") as TC Reso 07-20 Page 3 of 9 101 restaurants or other shelter facilities are permitted or restricted by a PUD Guide or by 102 Special Review. In accordance with the Ordinance and PUD Guide, "New shelters 103 or restaurant facilities or expansion thereof not identified on the current plan 104 submission" (e.g., amendment granted in 2005) require at minimum a Special 105 Review application; 106 c) Pursuant to the PUD Guide in Ordinance No.2,Series of 2005,there is a reference 107 that the maximum amount of commercial space for the ski mountain is 120,000 108 square feet. The Sam's Knob replacement restaurant building of approximately 109 8,821 square feet,together with the other ancillary or commercial facilities on the ski 110 mountain, continue to fall within the maximum square footage requirement; ill d) The proposed use and its proposed location are compatible with the character of 112 surrounding land uses in the area, and would not adversely affect the future 113 development of the surrounding area. The previous restaurant building of 114 approximately 11,500 square feet was two levels with roughly 260 indoor seats, 115 including 110 main dining seats, 90 children's dining, 50 upstairs sit down seating, 116 and 10'Snowball' seating in the back room; The replacement restaurant is smaller 117 in comparison with a one-level building incorporating 150 indoor seats; 118 e) Access to the site continues to be adequate for the proposed use utilizing existing 119 mountain roads, public transportation, or other public or private transportation 120 services at the base of the mountain,and appropriate ski/snowboard lifts,pedestrian 121 facilities/trails are designed into the project and as part of the entire Snowmass 122 Mountain that are made available to serve the building and ancillary facilities, and 123 that such proposal would not compromise the previously approved locations of 124 mountain trails; 125 f) The design and operation of the proposed use satisfactorily minimizes by its design 126 and orientation any adverse impacts and would not create a nuisance, considering 127 such impacts as traffic congestion or traffic hazards, service delivery, parking and 128 loading, trash removal, odors, noise, glare and vibration. The Applicant has 129 represented that"the only exterior lighting on the building will be down lights at the 130 building entrances and a service light at the loading dock area, or other exterior 131 lights as required by Code,"and that shades would be provided for the windows if 132 the building is eventually used for evening events; 133 g) The proposed use acceptably minimizes environmental impacts and would not 134 cause significant deterioration of water and air resources, wildlife habitat, scenic 135 resources and other natural resources; 136 h) There are adequate public facilities in the nearby vicinity and at the base of 137 Snowmass Mountain that would satisfactorily serve the proposed use; and 138 i) The parking arrangements at the base of Snowmass Mountain are sufficient to 139 serve this facility. 140 141 9) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-20 of the Municipal Code, wildlife issues were previously 142 addressed in the Final PUD and per the subsequent Environmental Assessment 143 under the review authority of the USFS. Sam's Knob is not located within a sensitive 144 wildlife area pursuant to the Town's Comprehensive Plan. 145 146 10) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-30(e)(1)(d) of the Municipal Code, the proposal does not 147 directly impact the Brush Creek corridor and the proposed site for development is 148 located outside of the Brush Creek impact zones. 149 TC Reso 07-20 Page 4 of 9 150 11) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-50 of the Municipal Code, the site is not located in a 151 hazardous geologic area. 152 153 12) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-50 of the Municipal Code, the Applicant has represented 154 satisfactorily that the new replacement restaurant will not be visible at all from anywhere 155 along Brush Creek Road, Owl Creek Road or the Town's community park, which the 156 Town Council accepts. This finding is made considering thatthe view angle is shallower 157 from the community park than from the northeasterly fall line of Sam's Knob to the roof 158 pitch of the restaurant building and that the alignment of the line of sight between Sam's 159 Knob and the Base Village area is generally the same as between Sam's Knob and the 160 Town's community park. As a result of this information, the Applicant has acceptably 161 represented that,"the building will be set back over 150 feet from the southeastern edge 162 that is visible from these points, and from screening provided by the existing stands of 163 30 to 35 foot tall coniferous trees located at the top of the Knob." 164 165 13) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-210 of the Municipal Code, the streets and related 166 improvements standards would not apply in this case. 167 168 14) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-220 of the Municipal Code, the proposed trails or 169 connections seem adequate and are not inconsistent with the Snowmass Mountain 170 Master Plan Amendment and Final PUD approved via Ordinance No.2,Series of 2005. 171 172 15) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-230 of the Municipal Code,water service would be provided 173 by generally the same on-mountain service that currently supplied the previous 174 restaurant. Sewer service would be tied to the existing on-mountain sewer main 175 connected to the Snowmass Water and Sanitation District treatment facilities. 176 177 16) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-230 of the Municipal Code, solid waste from the ski 178 mountain will be satisfactorily handled through the Divide vehicle maintenance facility 179 below the mountain. 180 181 17) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-240 of the Municipal Code,the Applicant acknowledged that 182 a fire sprinkler system would be installed in the replacement facility that would be served 183 by a possible fire suppression tank under the outdoor deck, a pump off the domestic 184 water line, or similar devices, together with the installation of a fully addressable alarm 185 system, which are acceptable. The Applicant acceptably acknowledged that the fire 186 suppression tank,if utilized,would need to be calculated for acceptable capacity in order 187 to capably serve the proposed fire sprinkler system. 188 189 18) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-250 of the Municipal Code,and even though such plans are 190 not a specific submittal requirement for a Special Review application, the application 191 proposes re-grading into existing knolls or the elimination of portions thereof near the 192 north and south ends of the proposed restaurant building footprint,which is acceptable. 193 194 19) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-270 of the Municipal Code, a subdivision plat for the 195 Snowmass Mountain was not in 2005 and still is not required, other than the previous 196 boundary survey or legal description submitted for the rezoning to"Recreation"at the 197 time of Final PUD, primarily because the property is under separate ownership by the 198 USFS. TC Reso 07-20 Page 5 of 9 199 200 20) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-300&310 of the Municipal Code,the parking provisions in 201 the Code are not applicable for this project and adequate parking is or would be 202 acceptably provided at the base of the mountain. 203 204 21) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-320 of the Municipal Code, conceptual landscape plans 205 were provided in the application, and even though such a plan is not a specific 206 submittal requirement for a Special Review application, the Applicant is satisfactorily 207 proposing to install plant material in the form of trees near or around the southern 208 portion of the restaurant area. The previous proposed 10 trees in front of the screen 209 wall for the snowcat are no longer needed to buffer the acceptably redesigned screen 210 wall that removes the rusted steel shingles. The existing alpine environment in the 211 immediate area also seems to provide additional,acceptable screening and buffering. 212 213 22) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-320(c) and (h) of the Municipal Code, the Applicant 214 submitted a Construction Management Plan (CMP) for the Sam's Knob area. That 215 CMP together with the previously approved CMP via Ordinance No.2,Series of 2006, 216 referenced in the Final PUD,are sufficiently adequate for controlling the impacts from 217 the construction on Sam's Knob. The Applicant's request to extend the construction 218 hours between 7:00 a.m.to past 6:00 p.m.to 7:00 p.m. is reasonable and acceptable 219 considering the significant separation distance of the site from existing residential 220 neighborhoods in the community. The Applicant also represented that no helicopter 221 use is anticipated for this project at this time. 222 223 23) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-330 of the Municipal Code, the building is acceptably 224 designed to take maximum advantage of solar,and the shadow impacts from the facility 225 are nominal. 226 227 24) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-340 of the Municipal Code, the application adequately 228 addresses the criteria regarding site integration, scale and mass, building materials, 229 climate/solar orientation and views. The building height is represented as being a 230 maximum of 35 feet from finished grade,which is acceptable. The building materials will 231 mainly incorporate cementitious panel and batten siding, non-reflective glass windows 232 with shades throughout the building, a stone veneer wainscot treatment on the front 233 fagade entry area, a rusted steel standing seam pitched roof, and stained concrete 234 exposed foundation walls for the building and deck, including a change to the screen 235 wall design for the snowcat/loading dock area incorporating a corrugated steel base and 236 cementitious plank siding or similar exterior finishes and colors approved by the USFS. 237 Such design treatments are consistent with the standards requiring, "buildings shall be 238 designed with natural materials and details that are indigenous to Colorado and that are 239 non-reflective." Further it states, "Materials should be predominantly authentic in their 240 appearance, with natural textures and weathering," which this application acceptably 241 demonstrates. In addition, 'The indigenous materials of the surrounding mountains 242 should be conveyed by integrating heavy timbers, natural siding materials and rock into 243 the building design;' which this application also acceptably implements. 244 245 25) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-340(c)(2)d of the Municipal Code, the Applicant 246 represented that the majority of roof top mechanical units would be mounted to a 247 maximum height of six(6) feet on a flat roof in the center of the building screened by TC Reso 07-20 Page 6 of 9 248 the roof parapet feature, which is acceptable. 249 250 26) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-410 of the Municipal Code,the caretaker unit built with the 251 previous restaurant prior to Town incorporation was not considered employee housing 252 mitigation. The employee housing requirements for the last Snowmass Mountain 253 Amendment were previously addressed via Ordinance No. 2, Series of 2005. The 254 replacement restaurant is smaller by comparison and generates a lesser number of 255 employees,and therefore per the Code's redevelopment credit formula, it generates no 256 employee housing requirement. However,there remains a concern that the Applicant 257 should or be encouraged to provide employee housing for the workers at the restaurant, 258 whether at this site or elsewhere. 259 260 27) Pursuant to Section 16A-4-500&510 of the Municipal Code,one non-illuminated sign 261 will be installed at the entrance to the restaurant that shall conform to the size limitations 262 of the Code, and is therefore acceptable. 263 264 28) The Applicant has satisfactorily represented for the public record that there will be no 265 summer time or nighttime operations projected at the facility at this time, and that the 266 design of the facility does not preclude such uses if proposed in the future. 267 268 Section Two: Action. Pursuant to the findings stated in Section One of this resolution, the 269 Town Council approves the Special Review application for the Sam's Knob replacement 270 restaurant and ancillary facilities shown in the Applicant's supplemental presentations and 271 application materials as more specifically described or illustrated in attached Exhibit "A," 272 subject to satisfactorily complying with or implementing the conditions in Section Three of this 273 resolution. 274 275 Section Three: Conditions of Approval. The approvals granted within Section Two above 276 shall be subject to the following conditions: 277 278 1) Even if no employee housing is required for the replacement restaurant due to the 279 redevelopment credit applied to the old restaurant,the Applicant shall consider and is 280 encouraged to construct the caretaker unit with the replacement restaurant or to 281 provide a unit elsewhere within the Town; However,this condition is a directive,which 282 shall not be enforceable or binding upon the Applicant prior to the issuance of a 283 building permit or certificate of occupancy. 284 285 2) Considering the constraints associated with a separate review process by a Federal 286 agency, the Town Council would prefer but not necessarily require that the west 287 elevation incorporate larger paned windows,versus the multi-paned windows,to take 288 advantage of the panoramic mountain back drop similar to the fenestration treatment 289 at the Sundeck restaurant on Aspen Mountain. 290 291 3) The Applicant shall coordinate in anticipation of scheduled major events on the 292 mountain, such as bike races, that construction access or activities not preclude such 293 events, with the understanding that the construction of the replacement restaurant is 294 also a priority. Considering such schedules, pre-grading but not excavation of the 295 foundation of the restaurant site is permissible beginning fall 2007,subjectto reviewand 296 approval of a grading permit by the Town's Chief Building Official. TC Reso 07-20 Page 7 of 9 297 298 4) Despite the appropriateness of allowing construction activities to occur on the site from 299 7:00 a.m.to 7:00 p.m.,there shall be no construction deliveries to the site after 6:00 p.m. 300 301 5) In efforts to comply with the Colorado Division of Wildlife (CDOW) recommendations, 302 the Applicant shall comply with the following: 303 304 a) If a helicopter is to be used during construction, the CDOW shall be consulted in 305 advance for input; 306 b) Dogs,firearms and archery equipment shall not be allowed to be brought on site by 307 construction workers, working employees, or caretaker residents, as applicable; 308 c) All disturbed areas shall be re-vegetated with native plant species beneficial to 309 wildlife upon completion of the exterior shell of the building and deck area; and 310 d) Any outside trash/garbage shall be kept in approved bear resistant containers 311 especially during construction as well as during the operation of the restaurant in 312 particular from spring to fall,as applicable,and all doors and windows on the facility 313 shall be closed and locked, and exterior doors installed with rounded door handle 314 knobs. 315 316 6) During construction, the Applicant's geotechnical engineer shall observe the 317 excavations for cut slope stability and bearing conditions for building support for 318 consistency with the recommendations in the HP Geotech letters dated October 10, 319 2005 and February 28, 2007. 320 321 7) For the temporary erosion control during the construction phase, the Applicant shall 322 employ the following Best Management Practices (BMPs): 323 324 a) Installation of an embedded fence around the disturbed soils and especially in the 325 low receiving ends of the slopes; 326 b) After clearing and grading and prior to construction, the Applicant shall install 327 temporary sediment pits along the drainage swales in orderto collect sediments and 328 prevent them from spreading. 329 330 8) For permanent post construction erosion control, the Applicant shall: 331 a) Immediately stabilize the surface around the disturbed area of the construction site 332 pursuant to the plantings and revegetation recommendations below; and 333 b) Install geofabric liner and riprap at all concentrated discharges, including roof drain 334 daylight points. 335 336 9) In addition to the proposed planting plan indicating the installation of new trees, the 337 Applicant shall revegetate to the extent feasible the disturbed surface portions of the 338 Sam's Knob site with native grasses immediately following construction of the exterior 339 shell of the building and/or after completion of the restaurant for the purposed of erosion 340 control. Given the size and exposed nature of the site, the Applicant shall revegetate 341 unestablished areas in subsequent years in attempts to fully complete revegetation of 342 the disturbed surface areas on Sam's Knob by the 2011/12 ski season. 343 344 10) The proposed service light fixtures at the loading/receiving area and at the front entrance 345 shall be downcast in addition to the light source being concealed from view angles TC Reso 07-20 Page 8 of 9 346 downvalley. The Applicant shall provide manufacture specifications of the light fixtures 347 and sources to the Town's Chief Building Official with the building construction plans to 348 determine compliance with the lighting ordinance. 349 350 11) If any of the roof top mechanical units, flues, vents or exhaust shafts happen to be 351 visible beyond the roof line or a parapet feature from the flat top of Sam's Knob, such 352 equipment shall be concealed with matching or similar building exterior or roof finishes, 353 or primed and painted to blend with the roofing color. 354 355 12) The proposed advertising sign at the front entrance shall not be internally illuminated or 356 indirectly lit from the exterior. 357 358 13) The additional or expanded deck area with supplemental seating and picnic tables for 359 separate accessibility by the general public from the outside of the restaurant building 360 for their usage,which is now proposed beyond the deck and seating area intended for 361 the restaurant patrons and integrated into the proposed landscape plan for the area, 362 shall be maintained accordingly by the Applicant including proper snow removal. 363 364 14) The possible future expansion of indoor or outdoor dining for up to 75 seats shall be 365 subject to Administrative Special Review for review and approval bythe Town's Planning 366 Director, provided the design, exterior finishes and color schemes match the main 367 building and not exceed the height of the main building. 368 369 15) The Applicant shall submit a separate Special Review application for intended 370 permanent ski patrol facility on Sam's Knob for administrative review and approval bythe 371 Town's Planning Director prior to issuance of a building permit for such a facility, 372 provided the USFS consents to the application and that such facility is consistent with 373 the design of the replacement Sam's Knob restaurant. 374 375 16) The Applicant shall define the "limited number of special events;' as noted in the 376 application to occur outside of the currently proposed winter operations only, by 377 submitting separate Special Review or other appropriate applications for review and 378 approval by the Town in advance of conducting such events. 379 380 Section Four: Severability. If any provision of this Resolution or application hereof to any 381 person or circumstance is held invalid, the invalidity shall not affect any other provision or 382 application of this Resolution which can be given effect without the invalid provision or 383 application, and, to this end, the provisions of this Resolution are severable. 384 385 INTRODUCED, READ, AND APPROVED by the Town Council of the Town of 386 Snowmass Village on August 20,2007 upon a motion by Council Member the second 387 of Planning Commission Member and upon a vote of_in favor and _against. 388 389 TOWN OF SNOWMASS VILLAGE 390 391 392 393 Douglas Mercatoris, Mayor 394 TC Reso 07-20 Page 9 of 9 395 ATTEST: 396 397 398 399 Rhonda B.

Box 1248 Aspen, Colorado 81612 Job No. 105 853 Subject: Geotechnical Review of Exposed Ground Conditions, Proposed Sam's Knob Restaurant, Snowmass Ski Area, Pitkin County, Colorado. Dear Mr. Gerdin: As requested, a representative of Hepworth-Pawlak Geotechnical,Inc. observed the excavation at the subject site on September 27, 2005 to evaluate the materials exposed for foundation support. The findings of our observations and recommendations for the foundation design are presented in this report. The services were performed in accordance with our agreement for professional engineering services to Aspen Skiing Company, dated September 23, 2005. At the time of our visit to the site,the proposed foundation area was rough graded but had not yet been cut to footing grade. The subsurface conditions were observed to a depth of about 4 feet in an existing utility trench cut adjacent to the proposed building area. It is our understanding that the excavation for the proposed Sam's Knob Restaurant will be completed in the spring of 2006. The materials exposed in the proposed building area consisted of about 2'/ feet of broken granodiorite rock overlying relatively solid granodiorite rock to a depth of about 4 feet. No free water was encountered in the adjacent utility trench and the bedrock was slightly moist. Considering the conditions exposed in the proposed building area and the nature of the proposed construction, spread footings placed on the bedrock or compacted structural fill and designed for an allowable bearing pressure of 4000 psf should be adequate for support of the proposed restaurant. Footings should be a minimum width of 16 inches for continuous walls and 2 feet for columns. Any topsoil, debris from the prior development and loose disturbed rock in footing areas should be removed and the bearing level extended down to the undisturbed natural bedrock. Voids created by removing rock blocks and the irregular excavation surface can be backfilled with a relatively well graded granular material, such as road base, compacted to at least 100% of standard Proctor density at a moisture content near optimum. Exterior footings should be provided with adequate soil cover above their bearing elevations for frost protection. Continuous foundation walls should be reinforced top and bottom to span local anomalies such as by assuming an unsupported length of at least 10 feet. Foundation walls acting as retaining structures should Parker 303-841-7119 • Colorado Springs 719-633-5562 - Silvertlrorne 970-468-1989 Aspen Skiing Company EXHIBIT 461391 October 10, 2005 TC Ord 07-16 Page 3 of 5 Page 2 also be designed to resist a lateral earth pressure based on an equivalent fluid unit weight of at least 50 pcf for on-site soil and imported granular material as backfill. A perimeter foundation drain should be provided to prevent temporary buildup of hydrostatic pressure behind the basement walls and prevent wetting of the lower level. Structural fill placed within floor slab areas should consist of predominantly granular material compacted to at least 95%of standard Proctor density at a moisture content near optimum. Backfill placed around the structure should be compacted and the surface graded to prevent ponding within at least 10 feet of the building. The recommendations submitted in this letter are based on our observation of the materials exposed within the building excavation and do not include subsurface exploration to evaluate the subsurface conditions within the loaded depth of foundation influence. This study is based on the assumption that soils beneath the footings have equal or better support than those exposed. Variations in the subsurface conditions could increase the risk of movement and change the recommendations contained in this letter. We should observe the completed foundation excavation and evaluate structural fill construction for compaction at the time of its placement. Our services do not include determining the presence,prevention or possibility of mold or other biological contaminants (MOBC)developing in the future. If the client is concerned about MOBC, then a professional in this special field of practice should be consulted. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please call our office.

Snowntass Ski Area_ Pitkin Counly, Colorado Dear Mr. Kiley: As requested, we have reviewed the proposed building plan for the subject project provided by Schmueser Gordon Meyer dated April 28, 2006 that includes a slope steepness map, with respect to the Town's regulations for construction on slopes in excess of 30%. Our geotechnical review of exposed ground conditions at the project site Hepworth-Pawlak Geotechnical. 2005) that included geologic conditions was used as a basis for our current review. Building in areas with slopes steeper than 30% is mainly proposed in the deck area, about the southern quarter of the proposed development. Sam's Knob. including the steep slopes. consists of granodiorite, a very hard intrusive material that has been exposed by natural erosion of the overlying Mancos Shale. Relatively shallow depth of oolhtvium and fill materials from the site covers the formation rock in the steeper slope areas. The steep hillsides within the proposed building areas do not contain landslides and the quality of the foundation rock is generally favorable to the proposed grading construction. Based on our review. the building plans are generally consistent with recommendations presented in our previous report for the site development. In our opinion. the natural slopes are not prone to instability or failure and the proposed grading and building construction should not increase the potential for slope instability or increase the risk of damage to adjacent property. When the grading plans have been developed, we should conduct additional analvsis for design level recommendations. During construction we should observe the excavations for cut slope stability and bearing conditions for building support.

PURPOSE AND ACTIONS REQUESTED OF COUNCIL A. To establish a revenue source to pay for new costs associated with increased resource needs generated as a result of new residential and commercial development and construction activity. B. Approve the First Reading of Ordinance No. 13, Series of 2007, an Ordinance Amending Certain Provisions of the Snowmass Village Municipal Code - Establishing a Construction Mitigation Fee. II. DISCUSSION On June 4, 2007, staff presented a Town Manager's Report to Council identifying costs associated with implementing the Town's Construction Coordination and Impact Mitigation Plan (CCfMP—see attached). In 2007, costs of approximately $275,000 are anticipated for equipment purchases, staffing, and other resource needs associated with day-to-day construction coordination and impact mitigation activities (see attached revenue/expense spreadsheet). Ordinance No. 13, Series of 2007, is presented in response to Council's direction that staff proceed with the necessary steps to establish a Construction Mitigation Fee to generate revenues to pay for the new costs identified above. The proposed ordinance would establish a fee of$1.00 (ONE DOLLAR) per square foot for development projects resulting in new floor area. The proposed fee would apply to all building development resulting in new floor area, including: demo/rebuilds, commercial and mixed-use, single-family and multi-family residential, as well as affordable housing, and other public Town projects. Fee payment would be required prior to building permit issuance, and collected revenues would be used to pay for costs specifically generated as a result of new residential and commercial development. The Construction Mitigation Fee would not be required for projects without new floor area. As such, residential and commercial remodels, tenant improvements, utility projects, or other right-of-way work would not be subject to the fee. Staff believes that the incremental costs generated as a result of this type of development would be accommodated under the proposed formula. Furthermore, since the most impactful right-of-way work is typically associated with new building development, staff believes that the proposed fee formula would be fair and equitable in its proposed application. Program expenses are anticipated to increase or decrease annually, depending on the amount of development activity and right-of-way work occurring in a given year. However, staff has conservatively budgeted for annual escalation of 5% in costs over the next five (5) years (see attached revenue/expense spreadsheet) in anticipation of a steady continuation of Town-wide development activity and inflationary factors. It is recommended that an annual review of revenue and expense projections will be required to ensure that an appropriate fee structure remains in place over time. Based upon currently projected costs and anticipated development activity levels, the fee, as proposed, is expected to generate the revenue necessary to pay for the new costs anticipated (including escalation) over the next several years. As part of this discussion, staff recommends that Council provide feedback concerning the applicability of this fee to the following project types: Single-family (low density) residential development Public Affordable Housing Mitigation Affordable Housing Public Capital Projects Major Residential Remodels Right-of-Way Projects III. NEXT STEPS If Council approves the First Reading of Ordinance No. 13, the item would be placed on the September 4, 2007 agenda for Second Reading. The stipulated fees would become effective 15 days after Council's approval at Second Reading. IV.

TOWN OF SNOWMASS VILLAGE Douglas Mercatoris, Mayor ATTEST: Rhonda Coxon, Town Clerk APPROVED AS TO FORM: John Dresser, Town Attorney Town of Snowmass Village Construction Coordination & Impact Mitigation Plan (CCIMP) Background& Purpose The CCIMP was developed in an effort to provide Council and the Community with a tool that: 1. Establishes a set of acceptable thresholds to address the cumulative impacts of land development and construction; 2. Identifies conceptual and approved projects that are anticipated to be built over time throughout Snowmass Village; and 3. Enables the projection of sequential timeframes within which, each particular project would likely become eligible to receive a Town Building Permit (based upon anticipated project approval timelines and compliance with tolerance thresholds for various types of impacts). The purpose of this tool is to: A. Provide Council with an unambiguous, Town-developed mechanism for regulating the quantity of construction (and construction-related impacts) that would be permitted at any given time; B. Provide the Community with a clear expectation of the overall plan for Village- wide development and the impacts associated therewith; and C. Ensure that a particular standard of livability will be maintained at all times, while providing the flexibility necessary to accommodate the changing needs of the development community. Impact Thresholds & Performance Standards 1. Right of Way Impacts a. Other than for emergency responses, unanticipated road closures associated with construction activity will not be permitted. b. Traffic Control will be coordinated and managed on primary roadways to a maximum of: i. Two (2) Five-minute stops during the shoulder seasons, and ii. No stops during the Summer and Winter Peak Seasons, Special Events, or Holidays (as such periods or days are defined annually by Council Resolution). iii. This threshold may be exceeded upon receipt of written authorization from the Town Manager or Chief Building Official. c. Contractors will be required to communicate and abide by clearly defined timeframes regarding the duration of ROW impacts. d. Contractors will proactively maintain and continuously monitor the cleanliness of public roadways. Any mud or dirt tracked into the ROW will be removed promptly. 2. Air Quality a. Contractors will be required to submit a fugitive dust control plan addressing how dust will be kept to a minimum at the project site. Control options established by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment shall be implemented in all areas of disturbed earth, including temporary haul roads, material staging areas, and open excavations. Any visible dust migration coming off of a project site will require the immediate application of enhanced control measures. b. PM-10 monitoring will continue to measure the particulates important to public health and safety. Allowable thresholds for this measurement include a 24- hour average not to exceed 150 ug/m3 and an annual average not to exceed 50 ug/m3. If required pursuant to project approvals, or at the discretion of the Chief Building Official, the Planning Director, or the Town's designated Environmental Consultant, an Air Quality (PM-10) Monitoring Plan may be required. c. Vehicles and equipment are prohibited from idling for prolonged periods of time in excess of 10-minutes. This standard will not apply where idling is required for worker, site, or material protection. 3. Noise a. Snowmass Village Municipal Code Section 18-3 limits excessive noise producing activity (above 60db, measured at the property line) to the hours of 7am-6pm, Monday through Saturday. b. Maximum allowable daytime and construction-related noise shall be limited to 90db, unless written authorization to exceed this threshold is provided by the Town Manager or Chief Building Official . 4. Stormwater Management and Erosion Control a. Construction-caused water discoloration will not be permitted in Brush Creek or other waterways within the Town. b. Exceedences of State Water Quality Control Board thresholds for various particulate and bacterial levels within Town waterways shall not be permitted. 5. Customer Service and Public Information a. The Renaissance of Snowmass will be emphasized as a positive evolution of our resort community, with a clear message that the Town remains "open for business" during construction. b. Traffic control personnel will be trained and required to provide friendly customer service (i.e., a wave and a smile) and accurate visitor information. c. Clear, consistent, and honest information will be communicated through signage, print, radio, television, and web-based media. ol. Residents and business owners will be actively informed of any construction activity proposed in close proximity to their properties. e. Weekly coordination meetings will be open to the public, and open lines of communication will be maintained between the Town, its Citizens, and the Development Community. 6. Transit Service a. Transit vehicles, including Village Shuttle buses and RFTA service from the Village Mall, will receive priority from traffic control personnel, such that reasonable headways can be maintained and transfers to regional bus service at the Brush Creek Intercept Lot will not be compromised. 7. Peak Seasons, Special Events and Holidays a. Construction impacts (i.e., excessive noise producing construction and vehicle activity, road and lane closures, or other "high-impact" activities) will be effectively limited or prohibited during peak seasons (Winter and Summer), special events and holidays, as such periods and specific dates are determined on an annual basis by Council Resolution. b. Contractors will be required to meet commitments concerning limitations on road closures, noise, heavy equipment use, or other impactful activities to accommodate special events. 8. Public Safety a. Emergency access in and out of the Village, and to all locations throughout the Village, will be maintained at all times. b. Safe pedestrian & bike trail connections will be maintained throughout the Village. c. Work under construction will have the necessary approvals and permits limiting "at-risk" construction) and will be built according to plan. 9. Enforcement a. The Impact Thresholds and Performance Standards described above will be applied to any active development project within the Town of Snowmass Village. Additional Standards and Regulations pertaining to Construction Management can be found in Snowmass Village Municipal Code Section 18- 10. b. As a guiding principle, the Town's enforcement tools will be applied firmly and consistently in order to develop a reasonable expectation on the part of the development community and to ensure greater compliance with established limits. c. The Town's enforcement policy, which clearly identifies the steps to be taken and remedies pursued in events of non-compliance can be found in SVMC Section 18-10. Construction Coordination And Construction Information Initiatives Construction Coordination A Construction Coordinator will be employed by the Town of Snowmass Village to actively engage developer and contractor representatives for all active construction projects throughout the Village. This group will meet regularly to discuss and coordinate activities to ensure compliance with adopted tolerance thresholds of the Construction Coordination and Impact Mitigation Plan (CCIMP) and other Town regulations concerning construction management. The Construction Coordinator will serve as a single point of contact regarding construction coordination and information and will work with all developers/contractors, traffic control contractors, and communicators to meet several of the objectives discussed in the CCIMP. The Construction Coordinator's job description is attached for further clarification on the roles and responsibilities of this individual. Construction Information Initiatives The Town's Community Relations Department will work closely with developers and contractors to collect construction-related information on a weekly, or as needed, basis.

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 apart 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 Trans!VParkino 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 Mail 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. 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. New Information: An Environmental Assessment was completed covering an assessment over parking lots 3-10. Staff is reviewing the draft for 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. D. Goals for Plan Update The Town Council approved the following goals for updating the Comprehensive Plan: a. Refine and provide definition to the Town's vision for the future through a community-based process. b. Ensure future development works within the carrying capacity of the community. c. Complete the West Village planning process 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. d. Update critical areas of the 1998 Comprehensive Plan, (including, but not limited to: Economic and market needs identified in Chapter 3, Transportation Plan, and Employee Housing Needs) that needs to be updated as the result of development that has been approved and as the result of the physical planning for the West Village. e. Provide clear guidelines for new development and identify needed public benefits. E. ACTIONS TO DATE ON COMPREHSIVE PLAN PROCESS The Town issued a request for proposals to complete a targeted update of the Comprehensive Plan on June 5, 2007. The Town received 5 proposals. Four teams were interviewed after an initial staff review of the proposals. On July 9h, the Town Council approved a 5-person steering committee, which included 2 Council members and 3 planning commissioners. On Thursday, August 2nd the Comp Plan Steering Committee and Town Staff interviewed four consulting teams to guide the update to the Comprehensive Plan and continue work on the West Village Mall plan. Each team gave a presentation and answered questions from the panel. After discussion and a group vote we ranked the following consulting teams in this order: i. Winston and Associates ii. Rock Creek Studio iii. Elk Mountains Consulting Group iv. EDAW The above-mentioned ranking was based on a set of criteria derived from the goals of the project. It was felt that Winston and Associates had the best understanding of the needs of the project and had the best qualifications in transportation planning, market analysis, and creative land planning. III. ACTION REQUESTED OF COUNCIL 1) Staff is requesting authorization for entering into a contract with Winston Associates to not exceed $236,971. Since the original budget, staff reviewed the transportation planning proposed and that scope increased based on input from the Transportation Department and needs for FTA funding in the future. This increase is offset by available EOTC funding to pay for transportation planning. The steering committee also asked for more time from Ian Thomas (market consultant) that also increased the total cost. Participation from 4140 architects was eliminated in the contract. Attachment A includes the draft contract and scope of work for Winston Associates. 2) Staff is requesting budget approval for the overall project. The total project budget is summarized below. The other major element of this project (aside from the Winston Contract) includes cost for communication with the public and paying for public meetings. Specifically the communication costs above include: Three public meetings at the Conference Center with Food, Beverages, and Audio Visual: $9,000.00 ($3,000 each) Four small focus group meetings with food and beverage: $800.00 ($200 each) Advertising for meetings, weekly informational ads with project updates: 4,800.00 (24 1/4 page ads for $200 each over 6 months) Weekly a-news blasts on Comprehensive Plan progress: $4,200 ($700/mo. x 6 months) Design Costs and printing collateral for State of Snowmass Reports: 1,200.00 Mailings to post-office box holders and businesses: $3,000 (Three mailings at 1,000 each) Color copying and miscellaneous printing: $1,000 Final results inserted into the Snowmass Sun and distributed around town in an annual report format: $5,000 The sources describe the funding needed from the general fund and the funds available from the EOTC for the transportation-planning component of the project. The uses summarize the costs of the project, which include the contract with Winston Associates, and costs associated with communications and public meetings.

There were no problems with traffic control this week. I did not receive any complaints regarding traffic control this week. Construction Activity Entrywa Brush Creek Road /Seven Star Aspen Earthmoving continued working at the visitor center site this past week. The work consisted of landscape grading and storm sewer installation. This work required a minimal amount of traffic control. I did not receive complaints regarding this site this week. Employee Housing They continued installing shallow utilities at this site. I did not receive any complaints regarding this site today. Town Hall Ongoing construction activity within project limits. I did not receive any complaints regarding this site this week. Upper Kearns Rd Utilities Upper Kearns Rd remains closed until Sept. 15th for utility work. Upper Kearns road will be temporarily opened for Labor Day weekend. Aspen Earthmoving feels they are on schedule to open by Sept. 15th. I did not receive any complaints regarding this site this week. Base Village Lower Carriage Way: Ongoing construction in this area this week PCL's schedule shows opening Lower Carriage Way to two lane traffic by Sept. 25'1'. At approx 5:15 Friday evening I received a complaint from the property manager of the Lichenhearth Condos regarding the Gould water truck blocking the entire upper entrance to his parking lot while filling up at the hydrant in that location. Mark said if it happens again that he would call the police. I agreed with him especially since I was already gone from the area. Mark said the driver claimed to be new and did not know the proper place to park while he filled the truck with water. I called his supervisor and asked that they do a better job of training this driver so he does not block access to the parking lots or businesses in the area. Wood Road: A new temporary access point was constructed o Friday to get to lower Wood Road. Traffic will be diverted.to the new section of Wood Rd. on Monday 8/20.

I did not receive any complaints regarding this site. Sinclar Meadows Construction at this project is ongoing. The detour to the Fox Run Trail will stay in place for approx. 2 weeks I received complaints regarding dirt and gravel on Owl Creek Road at the entrance/exit point of this project. I have been in contact with the project superintendent and with Joe Enzer from Related Westpac regarding this issue. On Friday they poured a concrete tracking pad at the exit point of the project. This should help eliminate the tracking of dirt and gravel out onto Owl Creek Road. Related Westpac has confirmed that they will monitor the effectiveness and continue to do what ever it takes to keep form tracking dirt or gravel onto the road. Residential: No complaints received this week.

ASPEN SKIING COMPANY Jim Wahlstrom Senior Planner Town of Snowmass Village PO Box 5010 Snowmass Village, CO 81615 July 23, 2007 Dear Jim; We are pleased to submit a revised building design as an addendum to our Sam's Knob Restaurant Special Review application. We have redesigned the building to perform more efficiently while retaining the same external appearance and operation concepts of the previous design and to respond to issues brought forth by the Planning Commission. Specific changes include reduction of back of house circulation space, elimination of the maker unit expansion of the deck area and redesign of the snowcat screening wall. These building changes are explained in detail in this letter. Additional information is also provided regarding LEED certification, critical path schedule, US Forest Service review, and targeted opening date. Attachments to this letter include the revised design drawings, side by side comparisons to the previous design, proposed ski patrol conditions, and a project critical path schedule. This letter and its attachments are intended to supplement the previous application contents, and the land use review standards and additional submission contents previously submitted remain applicable unless noted herein. We believe that the Sam's Knob Restaurant will prove to be an attractive and popular addition to the Snowmass Ski Area and to Snowmass Village and we look forward to discussing these changes and the rest of the restaurant design with staff and with Town Council. Description of Proposal This is a revised version of the project description that we provided in our January 2007 application for the restaurant, and it serves to highlight the changes that have occurred with the revised design as well as the number of similarities between the two versions. Deletions are struck through while additions are italicized and underlined: P.O.Box 1248 Aspen,CO 81612-1248 970.925-1220 www.aspensnowmass.com Page I Rin1eUon MNw.. The Sam's Knob restaurant will be located at the top of the re-graded Sam's Knob, at the top terminals of the Village Express and Sam's Knob chairlifts. The restaurant will have 150 indoor seats, 50 outdoor seats plus a public picnic lunch deck area and a coffee bar. The 9,2 t 7.155 square foot (per interior FAR calculations), single-level building contains an entry vestibule, coffee bar, public bathrooms, dining room, kitchen and back of house, and a shipping/ receiving dock. The building is designed around the views from the top of Sam's Knob, and the dining room is extended along the west elevation to capture the views as well as the winter sun. The building will utilize a sit down, quick-service operation that provides high throughput while maximizing the amount of time spent by guests in the dining room. Fast, family-friendly table service will differentiate Sam's Knob from the other mountain restaurant options. A coffee bar will serve beer and wine in addition to espresso drinks. The building is designed with gabled and flat roof elements and will be clad in natural materials including board and batten siding, stone base at the entry, rusted metal roof and rusted metal siding shingles. The building has been set back from the eastern edge of Sam's Knob to provide skier circulation at the top of the Village Express and Sam's Knob lifts, and to minimize any impact on views from the Town or from Snowmass Creek. The building's base will be located at 10,606' the existing elevation of the top of Sam's Knob, and the high point of the gabled roof will be 32' high, at 10,638'. Non-reflective glass is specified for all outdoor windows to minimize any glare. The Sam's Knob restaurant facility was conceptually approved by the Town of Snowmass Village through the Snowmass Mountain Master Plan PUD Amendment of 2004 and authorized in TOSV Town Council Ordinance 2-2005 pending a Special Review process to finalize the land use approvals for the building design. The proposed Sam's Knob restaurant is located on US Forest Service land, and the Forest Service is the primary jurisdictional review authority for this project. A copy of the Forest Service's conceptual approval is included with this application. The Sam's Knob restaurant will serve breakfast and lunch during the winter ski season. While other use is not currently contemplated by Aspen Skiing Company, TOSV Town Council Ordinance 2-2005 states in Section One: Findings under On-Mountain Facilities,Programs, Zoning and Uses that"...it is in the best interest of the Applicant and the Town to consolidate programs and use operations in the Elk Camp Meadows area for the sake of operational efficiency, however, activities will still take place in the Sam's Knob areas for special events, but not as regularly scheduled or for daily operation." The building is being designed with environmentally-efficient elements including a site plan that maximizes solar gain, an efficient building envelope, efficient Page 2 building systems, and specification of long-lifespan and minimal maintenance roofing and cladding materials. Aspen Skiing Company will pursue and apply for LEED Certification for the building. The building has been designed to meet the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility Standards (ABAAS). 1'the ..«:t A1.1.:..g the winter-tiff...

The changes are referenced throughout the text of this letter, and are also provided in a recommendation by recommendation list that is attached to this letter. Carryovers from Planning Commission-Approved Design The following attributes remain unchanged in the revised design: Same site orientation—the deck and dining room are oriented to receive the best solar orientation and views,while the back of house functions and loading dock area are positioned to minimize visibility from the public on the north end of the building. The overall rustic architectural character and building materials are the same. The primary external building materials are still cementitious plank board and batten siding, a stone base at the entry, a rusted metal roof and non-reflective glass. The Planning Commission and the USFS previously reviewed and approved two design changes that are incorporated into this plan: the alternate wood truss entry on the east elevation and the replacement of the gabled mechanical roof with a flat roof. The indoor seating remains at 150 seats,with an additional 50 full service seats on the outdoor deck. The same quick-service, sit down, family-friendly operation concept is envisioned. The public spaces within the building, including the dining room, entry, coffee bar and bathrooms, are unchanged. The entire building remains on one level with no steps required. Approximately 1/2 of the full service deck will be located on 30%+ slopes that will require Town Council approval. A geotechnical engineer has previously reviewed the plan and provided conditions for constructing the deck in this area. Page 3 Changes from Planning Commission- Approved Design Some revisions have been made to the design for the restaurant from the version approved by Planning Commission via PC Resolution No. 5-2007. These changes have been made to: remove non-critical back of house space, respond to Planning Commission comments, improve constructability, increase energy efficiency All of the revisions made have improved the building in one or more aspects, and none have resulted in a diminished final product. Table One provides a comparison of the current design and the previous design and details the changes that have been made to the building design. Comparisons of critical metrics are also listed, including physical size, seating capacity and height. Specific changes were made for the following reasons: The deck area was expanded to include an area for public picnic lunches as recommended by the Planning Commission. An area was identified for future seating expansion(up to 75 additional seats) in the northwest corner previously occupied by the caretaker unit. The fire suppression storage tanks were moved from underneath the deck to underneath the loading dock to improve service access. The caretaker unit was removed because it was deemed unnecessary to the operating program and was not required as mitigation. The snowcat screening wall was changed from a load-bearing wall with a rusty metal shingle exterior to a shorter screening wall with a grey cementitious-plank siding with a corrugated steel base at the snow level. This alternate approach improves the look of the building with better horizontal to vertical proportioning. It also replaces the rusted metal shingle siding with a simpler horizontal plank treatment. Comments received from Planning Commission and from the US Forest Service indicated a desire to see an alternate material for the fence. A series of comparison drawings are provided with this letter and show that the revisions are minor in nature and collectively serve to improve the overall look and feel of the building. We believe these revisions are in keeping with the findings and conditions of the Planning Commission as detailed in Planning Commission Resolution No. 5-2007. Furthermore, the Planning Commission, in Section Three, Finding One of PC Resolution No. 7-2007 approving the one-year extension request for the restaurant, stated their desire to see an expedited review of the building: There should be sensitivity.to the Applicant's requirement to obtain review and approval of the Sam's Knob replacement restaurant by two jurisdictions, and the SPlanning Commission encourages the expeditious review by the Town and a priority Page 4 basis established for the application in efforts to get the facility open and operational as soon as possible." One change that is not reflected in the drawings is a desire to increase the size of the window panes on the west (view) elevation. The windows are currently drawn with small panes and mullions to comply with the design direction established by the USFS. Planning Commission has recommended that larger panes of glass be used and encouraged us to revisit this issue with the USFS. We intend to seek approval for larger panes of glass when we submit this revised design for their consideration.

Aspen Skiing Company intends to pursue LEED certification for this building, although not to the extent that it causes an additional year of delay. We currently believe that we will be able to do the up front design and documentation required for LEED certification while still being able to deliver the restaurant by the 08/09 ski season. Planning Commission agreed with this approach and included a condition to that effect in Resolution No. 7-2007 approving the Snowmass Ski Area PUD Amendment to extend delivery of Sam's Knob restaurant to the 08/09 season. Page 5 With or without LEED certification, the building has been designed to be highly energy efficient: site orientation for maximum winter solar gain, efficient floor plan and smaller building footprint insulated walls, roof and window systems that exceed building code requirements, efficient mechanical systems, operable windows building commissioning to fine-tune mechanical system performance possible use of modular or SIPS (structurally-insulated panels) roof or walls further increases insulation factor. Employee Housing. A two-bedroom caretaker unit was included in the initial application submission for the Sam's Knob restaurant, but has been removed from the building program as part of the redesign. This unit was removed because it is not required for mitigation purposes, was deemed unnecessary for restaurant operations, and was not a fully functional location for employee housing given its winter-only use and difficult access. The previous Sam's Knob restaurant facility, constructed in 1967 before the Town's 1977 incorporation, had a winter-only caretaker unit. This unit had not previously been used to satisfy housing mitigation requirements and was not deed-restricted or otherwise committed to use as housing. Employee housing mitigation is not required for the proposed building since the proposed Sam's Knob Restaurant will be smaller than the previous building. Per the employee generation analysis in Table Two, the restaurant, whether operated as a cafeteria or as a sit-down restaurant, will not generate new employees as calculated in Article IV, Division Four of the Land Use Code. Aspen Skiing Company would like to discuss the assignment of a credit for the reduction to be applied to other mountain projects. The caretaker unit was included in previous designs but it was ultimately determined to be non-essential at this location because of its winter-only occupancy, difficult accessibility and previous incidents with remotely-housed employees. It was been removed from the program in order to accomplish other redesign goals including reducing the overall size of the building and creating an area for future seating expansion.

The US Forest Service has established a three step review process for this building: at conceptual design, 50% Construction Documents, and at 95% Construction Documents. The previous building design received conceptual approval but will require re-review for the revised design. The USFS has not yet reviewed or approved these design revisions. An application is being submitted for their review at the same time as it is submitted to the Town. The USFS has reviewed and conceptually approved the previous design as well as the alternate entry and mechanical roof modifications. We believe that the USFS will approve the design changes given their minor nature and that the building is keeping with the design intent established for the previous design. We are requesting that the USFS allow the use of larger panes of glass on the west view) elevation. We are currently showing smaller panes of glass with mullions in order to comply with the USFS design guidelines. Proposed Conditions—08/09 and 09/10 ski seasons. The current ski patrol trailer will be used again for the 08/09 season and will be relocated to the south to a location has been identified by mountain operations staff and ski patrol as the preferred location for fast incident deployment, and will not impede skier circulation from the top of Sam's Knob. A separate application will be submitted to the Town for approval of the permanent structure and the permanent ski patrol shack will be constructed in that location for the 09/10 season. Construction. Numerous factors contribute to the difficulty of constructing the restaurant in one construction season: A commercial building of this size would typically take 10-12 month to construct, and our construction season at that elevation will be approximately 8 months. The long daily travel time to access the site Lingering snow conditions in spring and early onset in fall increase the number of bad weather days and make for difficult access to the site. Page 7 iHigh altitude working conditions affect labor productivity as well as materials delivery and placement(e.g. concrete) We will coordinate with the Townwide Construction Management Plan and Construction Manager to integrate with other construction project logistics. The restaurant, while difficult to build due to the remoteness of the site, is roughly analogous to a large single family house in terms of size and the levels of day to day construction activity and should not unduly impact the Town's road network. We are requesting some flexibility in our Construction Management Plan to help facilitate an accelerated project. These modifications to our previously submitted Construction Management Plan were approved by the Planning Commission during their review and include: The use of a helicopter, if required, for delivery of large materials including structural timbers, and modular roof or wall panels. Extended construction hours and days to allow for work from Monday through Saturday from 7am to 7pm, with no deliveries to the site occurring after 6pm. Schedule. A critical path schedule is included that shows the sequence and timing of the steps required to occur in order to open the restaurant. The schedule includes redesign, TOSV review, USFS review, construction documents, preconstruction and construction phases. We intend to open the restaurant before the peak holiday period in December 2008, and the schedule shows very little margin of error in order to achieve that target. The schedule also shows that even the earlier tasks in the process like permit review length, redesign time, and other entitlement-related steps have a direct bearing on the final opening date. To that end we are requesting expedited review and approvals of this building by Town Council and staff, as well as from the USFS, in order to facilitate our mutually desired objective of delivering the restaurant by the December 2008 holiday period. Previously Submitted Information The following information was previously submitted for the Sam's Knob Restaurant and remains applicable to this design: Land use code review standards General application requirements incl. disclosure of ownership, USFS approval to proceed, vicinity map and existing conditions survey Geotechnical review report Ridgeline protection analysis Operations plan Page 8 30% slope conditions review and suggested conditions language Construction management plan Erosion control plan Construction access points map Construction staging area plan Summary of Specific Requests To summarize the general and specific requests made of Town Council regarding the Sam's Knob Restaurant, we are seeking: Special Review approval of our design as revised with this submission. Expedited review and approval of the application by Town Council and staff as indicated on the attached schedule without referral back to Planning Commission. Consideration of and discussions with the USFS regarding our proposal for larger window panes on the west elevation. Construction Management Plan requests to allow for helicopter use and extended hours from lam—7pm Monday through Saturday. Approval to construct approximately % of the deck on slopes greater than 30%. Proposed ski patrol trailer location for the 08/09 season We are committed to delivering a high quality Sam's Knob restaurant for the Snowmass Ski Area for the 08/09 winter season, and are eager to review this design with the Town of Snowmass Village. Please don't hesitate to contact me at (970) 923-8758 ifI can answer any questions or if I can otherwise assist in the review of this application. in Chris Kile Project Manager Page 9 J O OO O Z D yO j Om i a vi z Om m Nnc j Coneretef0l derBlack Z Peet 06901 OLSOI m t7). 9gSOt 00901 90901 1$'DIa.V61M1C_alpipe, 06-9pT rn EdgeoiNeellne y 06S_0C 10614. 00901 OrIlBock Pe%061"061 0 F Q 1/ Shack I Efeclrro Yabtts vS(eel Pipes Top eJ(66k 9{56uroflsJ Cone L fps 1 -' 0911 Concrela O Elech(c eWl t- i EdgeW heel-.reOE901 N Is as - 06oti Clus(er011d'Dia.Fir Trees Steel Pipes', 5065 , . m Sh offs). irOldHePPad10590 — _ _ 1 1059% Wood Platform) Elwlec Pededal 10586 lo 10596" O O 10594 T i 101, 16590 nxH Lc zSAM'S KNOB RESTAURANT o a SNOWMASS SKI AREA p±R E qW On PW WCW a SNOWMASS VILLAGE, COLORADO 81654 s J O OO O z D O O_ r>, Concrete/CinderBlocknPad 06901 T. 00901 9AS aa 9090[plb\Oa.yerticatFlea" - i _ 0! m Edge oGTieeline 0090[ Of LSp6147ti909 cl Z 10.2' N 1 blf Shack C Electnc Topdtink 3 Steel Af,asl . gShutoffs) It xN D Conomte Pad__ yW EechkYaWt RT P AN fiYge 7idelmz OL90i 60 r9or Pe .ate h r i lye r, Clusm NlsDia. ti r-A - --- SteelPyies', ob. 10598 Sh,11 -r Old HaAPad 10590 X059 Wood Plaffor ) A - EleCtdc Qetle3(e! i 0$86_ 70$g0`_ 1059 m 0594-) L'i 1 % 10590- O a s<eelapeaShutoffs) 1Elechic'Vault Q 0 n O N SAM'S KNOB RESTAURANT 4 4 €0 ZA zQPNybbS00VVZ= Tm VVVN70 Q a SNOWMASS SKI AREA it2rC F° W az o SNOWMASS VILLAGE, COLORADO 81654w"ssm o z n 4(YBRYANPARTNERSHIP, INC.

Section Three: Recommendations. The Planning Commission makes the following recommendations for consideration by Town Council as conditions for the application: 1) Considering the constraints associated with a separate review process by a Federal agency, the Planning Commission would prefer but not necessarily require that: a) the west elevation incorporate larger paned windows, versus the multi-paned windows, to take advantage of the panoramic mountain back drop similar to the arrangement at the Sundeck restaurant on Aspen Mountain. Response: Aspen Skiing Company will pursue this change with the US Forest Service and with the Snowmass Town Council. 2) The alternative main entry detail and fenestration treatment on the east elevation of the building is preferred. Response: These features have been incorporated into the revised design. 3) An additional or expanded deck area with supplemental seating and picnic tables for separate accessibility by the general public from the outside of the restaurant building for their usage should be provided beyond the deck and seating area intended for the restaurant patrons, integrated into the proposed landscape plan for the area, and maintained accordingly including proper snow removal. Response:A 36-seat public picnic lunch deck area has been incorporated into the revised design. 4) The Town Council should determine by separate ordinance if the Applicant and their geotechnical engineer has satisfactorily complied with the Municipal Code standards for allowing the outdoor deck and related retaining foundation walls to encroach into a 30% or greater slope area. Page I Response: this request remains part of our revised design. 5) During construction, the Applicant's geotechnical engineer should observe the excavations for cut slope stability and bearing conditions for building support for consistency with the recommendations in the HP Geotech letters dated October 10, 2005 and February 28, 2007. Response: conditions are acceptable to Applicant. 6) For the temporary erosion control during the construction phase, the Applicant should employ the following Best Management Practices (BMPs): a) Installation of an embedded fence around the disturbed soils and especially in the low receiving ends of the slopes; b) After clearing and grading and prior to construction, the Applicant should install temporary sediment pits along the drainage swales in order to collect sediments and prevent them from spreading. Response: conditions are acceptable to Applicant. 7)For permanent post construction erosion control, the Applicant should: a) Immediately stabilize the surface around the disturbed area of the construction site pursuant to the plantings and revegetation recommendations below; and b) Install geofabric liner and riprap at all concentrated discharges, including roof drain daylight points. Response: conditions are acceptable to Applicant. 8) The Applicant's proposed planting plan submitted March 14, 2007 should be reviewed to determine if the outstanding review comments dated March 5, 2007 have been addressed to the satisfaction of the Town's Landscape Architect. Response: we believe that the outstanding review comments have been addressed in the current landscape plan. 9) In addition to the proposed planting plan indicating the installation of new trees, the Applicant shall revegetate the disturbed surface portions of the site with native grasses immediately following construction of the exterior shell of the building and/or after completion of the restaurant, but absolutely no later than the start of the 2008/09 ski season, for the purpose of erosion control. Response: Conditions are acceptable to applicant, however it should be noted that revegetation would occur the spring following construction, or prior to the 09110 ski season. In addition, the bedrock condition of the top of Sam's Knob will prevent revegetation of much of the site. 10) The proposed service light fixtures at the loading/receiving area and at the front entrance shall be downcast in addition to the light source being concealed from view angles downvalley. The Applicant should provide manufacture specifications of the light fixtures and sources to the Town's Chief Building Official with the building construction plans to determine compliance with the lighting ordinance. Page 2 Response: conditions are acceptable to Applicant. 11) If any of the roof top mechanical units, flues, vents or exhaust shafts happen to be visible beyond the roof line or a parapet feature from the flat top of Sam's Knob, such equipment should be concealed with matching or similar building exterior or roof finishes or primed and painted to blend with the roofing color. Response: conditions are acceptable to Applicant. 12) The proposed advertising sign should be prohibited from being internally illuminated in addition to not being indirectly lit from the exterior. Response: conditions are acceptable to Applicant. 13) Despite the appropriateness of allowing construction activities to occur on the site from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., there should be no construction deliveries to the site after 6:00 p.m. Response: conditions are acceptable to Applicant. 14) In efforts to comply with the Colorado Division of Wildlife (CDOW) recommendations, the Applicant should comply with the following: a) If a helicopter is to be used during construction, the CDOW should be consulted in advance for input; b) Dogs, firearms and archery equipment should not be allowed to be brought on site by construction workers, working employees, or the caretaker residents; c) All disturbed areas should be re-vegetated with native plant species beneficial to wildlife upon completion of the exterior shell of the building and deck area; and d) Any outside trash/garbage should be kept in approved bear resistant containers especially during construction as well as during the operation of the restaurant in particular from spring to fall as applicable, and all doors and windows on the facility should be closed and locked, and exterior doors installed with rounded door handle knobs. Response: conditions are acceptable to Applicant. 15) The Applicant shall define the"limited number of special events,"to occur outside of the currently proposed winter operations only, by separate Special Review or other appropriate application for review and approval by the Town in advance of conducting such events. Response: conditions are acceptable to Applicant. Page 3
