Tracker: Vail Town Council 5/15/07

How they voted:

Yes: Foley, Gordon, Hitt, Logan, Newbury.

No: Moffet, Slifer

What they talked about: The approved law extends the allowed time for amplified noise in Vail Village and Lionshead from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Several bars that have performers support the law. Some Vail Village homeowners say it would make the neighborhood too noisy at night.

What they said: Council gave final approval to the proposed law.

What’s next? Police will enforce the new law. Several council members said they want to evaluate how things go under the new law and may re-examine it after the summer.

How they voted:

Yes: Foley, Gordon, Hitt, Logan, Moffet, Newbury, Slifer.

What they talked about: This law amends the “special development district” at Cascade Village to allow for a snowcat road to be built south of the Eagle River Water and Sanitation District and the old Amoco site. Part of the road would be on an 8-acre, town-owned piece of land called “Tract K.”

The snowcat road would remove snowcats from West Forest Road, a residential street that has served as an access route for the snowcats to get from the mountain to the maintenance yard in West Lionshead. A bridge has already been built for the new route.

The amendment has been stalled since 2004 because Vail Resorts has needed approvals from 75 percent of Cascade Village property owners under covenants for the property.

What’s next? Construction of the snowcat road is expected to begin in spring of 2008.

How they voted:

Yes: Foley, Gordon, Hitt, Logan, Moffet, Newbury, Slifer.

What they talked about: The council unanimously approved purchase of two condos: one at Vail Heights on Chamonix Lane for $280,000 and one at Pitkin Creek Park in East Vail for $460,000.

What’s next: Town officials have indicated that these condos would be used by town employees.
