Snowmass pushes back consumption vote
September 25, 2012
SNOWMASS VILLAGE – The Snowmass Village Town Council voted Monday to continue at its next meeting the second reading of an ordinance creating an entertainment district where liquor licensees could have common consumption areas.
Councilman Jason Haber had to leave the meeting early and would not have been present for the vote. Haber voted against the ordinance on first reading Sept. 10.
The council also provided feedback on a number of transportation and capital projects. Expenses for some of those, such as the town’s contribution to a roundabout at Wood and Brush Creek roads, are already budgeted for, and some could be fully covered by the town’s Road Fund, including a possible mini-roundabout at Owl Creek and Brush Creek roads. Other projects, including proposed additional service on Snowmass Village Bus Route No. 1, would need to be added to the town’s fiscal budget.
The officials will meet at a retreat starting at 9 a.m. today in the council chambers to discuss the 2013 budget.
The council also approved a sign plan for the Westin Hotel, which includes specifics about the property’s signage as well as a process for approving those of the businesses renting retail space in the property.
