The agenda for Tuesday's Council meeting was full of education and context. In case you missed it, here's a very brief summary organized by agenda item. You can also watch the meeting in full on our website
* Please note that an official summary of the meeting will be provided in the meeting minutes, to be reviewed/approved by the Town Council on a later date.
ITEM NO. 4: RESOLUTION No. 30, SERIES OF 2013 - SPRINT ANTENNAE UPGRADES
Sprint requested that this item be continued for 30 days. Council took no issue with the request and will revisit the item on February 18, 2014.
ITEM NO. 5: DISCUSSION - DRAFT CONCURRENT PLANNING COMMISSION AND TOWN COUNCIL REVIEW SCHEDULE REGARDING PROPOSED MAJOR PUD AMENDMENT PRELIMINARY PLAN ON LOT 2, BASE VILLAGE
Discussion centered on the work load required to perform a concurrent review required from Community Development staff, and the Planning Commission--a volunteer board. Senior Planner Jim Wahstrom and Interim Town Manager Gary Suiter will be conducting a more in-depth staffing inventory to make sure that an expedited review process would not impact the quality of the review process.
ITEM NO. 6: BASE VILLAGE 101
Senior planner Jim Wahstrom provided an overview of the Base Village Development specific to three categories: Associated land use applications, development parameters and controls, and companion agreements. The full presentation can be found in the Council packet
(starting on pg. 46), and/or viewed online
. Council requested this application to provide context and education as Base Village development ramps up again.
ITEM NO. 7: DISCUSSION - ELECTED OFFICIALS TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE HISTORY
This discussion, led by Transportation Director David Peckler, provided an overview on the history of the EOTC. Peckler advised that Council pay particular attention to the Comprehensive Valley Transportation Plan
(see pg. 101), a guiding document addressing the projects and priorities for our regional transportation system. Council and Peckler discussed how money was allocated to various initiatives, and advised that we should keep a close eye on potential Snowmass Village projects that would require future funding.
ITEM NO. 8: MANAGER'S REPORT
Interim Town Manager Gary Suiter delivered a brief update to Council. First, he shared that he and Mark Kittle, Chief Building Official, are reviewing submitted applications for the Community Development Director position. After whittling down the applicant list to a few finalists, he will solicit the help of other staff members for interviews in the coming weeks. Many of the applicants are local and regional. He hopes to have someone hired by March, 2014. In addition, Suiter noted that the town's Annual Report has been finalized and will be hitting PO boxes in the Village shortly.
