Vail seeks consultants for West Vail parcel

Daily Staff Writer

The town of Vail is initiating a master planning process to identify current and future uses for a 3.6-acre parcel in West Vail. A request for proposals has been issued by the town. The property, at 2310 Chamonix Road, was purchased by the town in 2002. At the time, the Town Council identified a “fire station, affordable housing and land banking” as possible future uses. The Chamonix property is zoned primary-secondary residential and is the largest remaining town-owned developable parcel in Vail. Proposals are due to the town by July 9. Help is sought in land planning, site analysis and layout, architectural massing, space programming, construction cost estimating and public process. Once hired, the planning team will help with a process that will include a series of neighborhood meetings and Town Council discussions to implement previous decisions to locate a fire station on the property and to identify and evaluate additional uses. The schedule calls for selection of a planning team July 22. Neighborhood meetings are to occur in August and September, with Town Council selection of preferred uses for the property in mid-October. To request a copy of the master plan proposal, contact Suzanne Silverthorn in the town Community Information Office at 479-2115 or go to and click on the public notices section.
