In a special meeting on Thursday, September 8, 2022, the Mountain Village Town Council will hold a second reading, public hearing and council vote on an ordinance considering the Final Site-Specific Planned Unit Development for the Lot 161CR Hotel Project.
Council will also consider a resolution regarding a major subdivision application to replat the associated lots for the project into one 4.437-acre lot and rename it Lot161C-RR. The meeting begins at 9 a.m.
Both of these items are a continuation from the originally scheduled August 25, special Town Council Meeting. The item was continued to give the applicant and town more time to finalize the necessary final SPUD documents and exhibits for Council review and consideration.
“The application proposes a 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 53 traditional hotel rooms, and the Four Seasons, 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 final SPUD approval is a culmination of the previous conceptual and sketch approvals the project has received from DRB and Town Council.
“This application represents the final PUD package: variations, community benefits, public benefits, density transfers/rezones, design plans, legal agreements and major subdivision review,” said Mountain Village Assistant Town Manager Michelle Haynes. “This is a long-anticipated development proposal in a key location adjacent to the gondola as identified in our 2011 Comprehensive Plan and the current Comprehensive Plan process as a flagship hotel site.”
The first public hearing for this project was held in February 2022, and the first conceptual approval was granted by Town Council in March 2022. The second sketch approval application was approved in May 2022. Council approved the first reading of the ordinance in its July 21, 2022 council meeting.
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. As this project has developed, a number of community benefits have been included in this application.
