Vail: ‘Green’ village clears Lionshead hurdle

How they voted:

Yes: Cleveland, Daly, Foley, Gordon, Hitt, Newbury, Rogers

What they talked about: This proposed ordinance, which was given preliminary approval by the Town Council, would rezone the Vail Professional Building and Cascade Crossing in West Lionshead as well as part of the existing frontage road to “Lionshead Mixed Use-2 zoning.” The rezoning would allow bigger buildings to be built there as part of Vail Resorts’ proposed $1 billion Ever Vail complex.

What’s next: A second reading could give final approval to the rezoning at the Aug. 5 council meeting.

How they voted:

Yes: Cleveland, Daly, Gordon, Hitt, Newbury, Rogers

No: Foley

What they talked about: The council gave final approval to a major amendment to a special development district to allow for development on the Cornerstone site. The site is just northwest of the bottom of the Cascade ski lift. The proposal would be 71 feet high and include 22 condos and more than 2,000 square feet of employee housing on-site.

How they voted:

Yes: Cleveland, Daly, Foley, Gordon, Hitt, Newbury, Rogers

What they talked about: The council authorized the staff to enter into an agreement with Colorado Department of Transportation and a contractor for up to $600,000 to extend fiberoptic cable from mile marker 182, east of East Vail, to mile marker 177, near the main Vail exit. The project would tie the town’s network into CDOT’s network, giving the town access to CDOT’s camera and variable message signs.

How they voted:

Yes: Cleveland, Daly, Foley, Gordon, Hitt, Newbury, Rogers

What they talked about: The council approved a resolution that authorizes the town manager to enter into a new lease agreement with the Vail Recreation District for the Vail Golf Club. The town owns the golf club and leases it to the recreation district, a separate government that runs the course. The new agreement lays out responsibilities for maintenance at the course and clubhouse.
