Mountain Village Town Council and Design Review Board to hold a public hearing on hotel project application located at 161 CR and Pond Lots in Village Center

On Thursday, February 17, 2022, the Town of Mountain Village’s Town Council and Design Review Board will hold a joint meeting to review a Conceptual Site-Specific Planned Unit Development application in the Village Center proposing a branded hotel and associated amenities located near the gondola and the Village Pond.

The application proposes a branded five-star hotel, residences, condominiums, a restaurant, bar, spa and public and private amenity spaces on Lot 161CR and associated lots in the vicinity. The project proposes 50 traditional hotel rooms, and a five-star luxury hotel/resort brand will operate and manage the property in accordance with the goals of the Mountain Village Comprehensive Plan.

This conceptual Site-Specific Planned Unit Development (SPUD) application is the first of three required steps in the approval process. In addition to the Conceptual SPUD application, the applicant will be required to seek a sketch and final SPUD approval.

A Planned Unit Development application provides the Town Council with the ability to vary and waive provisions of the Community Development Code in exchange for community benefits.

“This is a long-anticipated development proposal in a key location adjacent to the gondola and located in the Village Center,” said Mountain Village Planning and Development Services and Housing Director Michelle Haynes. “The 2011 Comprehensive Plan focused on a desire for a five-star branded hotel project in the Mountain Village. A significant amount of time and effort had been spent identifying these specific lots for a hotbed project during the first and now current Comprehensive Plan process.”

In order for the project to be developed, the applicant is requesting Lot 161CR be replatted with Lots 67, 69R-2, 71R and OS-3Y into one integrated parcel, Lot 161C-RR, in order to be in line with the Town’s Comprehensive Plan.

The joint Town Council and Design Review Board session will be held during the regular February Town Council meeting on Thursday, February 17. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m., and it is anticipated the joint session will begin at 2:15 p.m.
