Town Council to consider resolution to deny the pending application for Lot 109R hotel project PUD amendment March 16
At its regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, March 16, the Mountain Village Town Council is scheduled to consider a resolution to deny the pending application a Major Planned Unit Development (PUD) Amendment to the existing Lot 109R PUD.
At its January 19 meeting, Town Council voted 6-1 (with Council Member Patrick Berry dissenting) to direct staff to draft a resolution of denial after that citing that the project is more appropriate for a new PUD application process versus a PUD amendment process.
The consideration of the proposed resolution is scheduled to begin at 3:15 p.m. on Thursday, March 16. The applicants will present to council before the resolution is considered.
“Town staff has been working with the applicant on this project since 2021, and the applicant has requested time to further discuss their proposed amendments to the PUD as it relates to both variation requests and public benefits as well as to clarify issues raised at the last hearing,” said Mountain Village Community Development Director Amy Ward. “Given all of the time and resources that have gone into the process thus far, The Town determined it’s only appropriate to give them some additional time to speak before the Resolution for Denial is considered.”
The project applicant is Tiara Telluride, LLC which owns the Mountain Village Hotel site, located where North Village Center Parking lot currently sits. The 109R PUD (also known as Mountain Village Hotel PUD) was first approved in 2010 and has received three PUD amendments that extended its vesting period, now set to expire in September 2023.
The luxury hotel brand Six Senses has provided a letter of intent to operate the proposed hotel. The project proposes 50 hotbeds, 20 condominiums, 31 lodge units, 18 employee dorms, 2 employee apartments, restaurants, conference space, hotel amenity spaces and improvements to Village Center plazas.
