Council to consider Ever Vail on Tuesday
Ryan Summerlin November 30, 2012
VAIL, Colorado – The development applications for Ever Vail submitted by Vail Resorts Development Co. will be considered for preliminary approval by the Vail Town Council at its Tuesday meeting.
The four applications are listed 12th on the evening meeting agenda, which begins at 4 p.m. in the Vail Town Council Chambers.
The Ever Vail development applications were submitted to the town of Vail in October 2008, which set into motion a series of development review steps, including consideration of a new subdivision and the ordinances to establish zoning and development parameters. In January 2011, the Planning and Environmental Commission recommended approval of the Ever Vail preliminary plan contingent on a subdivider’s agreement and the remaining Ever Vail applications being approved by the Town Council.
The subdivision request is being considered as Resolution No. 35, Series of 2012, which proposes to consolidate the Holy Cross Lot, Vail Resorts Maintenance Yard, Vail Professional Building, Cascade Crossing, Glen Lyon Office Building, former BP gas station and the frontage road right-of-way into two new parcels.
Also to be considered Tuesday will be first reading of Ordinance No. 7, Series of 2011, which would apply Lionshead Mixed Use 2 zoning to the two new Ever Vail redevelopment parcels. Approximately half of the property today is already zoned Lionshead Mixed Use 2. The zoning would allow for the mixed-use development anticipated in the Lionshead Redevelopment Master Plan.
Another ordinance scheduled for first reading Tuesday is Ordinance No. 8, Series of 2011, which would remove the Glen Lyon Office Building from the Cascade Village Special Development District and add it to the Ever Vail development area.
The third ordinance to be considered Tuesday is first reading of Ordinance No. 9, Series of 2011, which would amend the Vail Town Code to allow the Ever Vail development to be included in the core areas identified for the purpose of establishing core area parking requirements for Ever Vail.
If the ordinances are approved by the Town Council on first reading, a second reading will be scheduled for the Dec. 18 meeting. Final approval of the development applications would allow the applicant to relocate the frontage road, record the final plat and implement the zoning within the next eight years.
The timing of the Town Council’s review of the Ever Vail applications follows a decision to suspend negotiation of a development agreement and instead focus on the applications.
