VAIL The Vail Town Council Tuesday will hold off on a final decision on the Crossroads renovation proposal. Final approval from the Town Council could come at the March 7 meeting, said Russ Forrest, the towns chief planner.The issue must be postponed because notice about a proposed ordinance allowing the project didnt appear soon enough as a legal notice in the Vail Daily, Forrest said.Town officials are hammering out details of the development improvement agreement, which outlines landscaping, public art, the public plaza, employee housing and road improvements. Developer Peter Knobel wants to build between 65 and 73 condos, a 10-lane bowling alley with an arcade, a three-screen movie theater, stores, restaurants and a public plaza/skating rink. The council gave preliminary approval to the project Feb. 7 with a 4-3 vote.
