Snowmass gov’t schedules public Base Village meetings

Staff report

The town of Snowmass Village will host three public meetings to discuss the future of Base Village development.

The joint work sessions will include the Town Council, the Planning Commission and Snowmass Acquisition Co., the Related Cos. subsidiary that owns Base Village. The meetings will be considered “pre-sketch” sessions under the town’s land-use code, according to the statement.

A pre-sketch meeting gives Snowmass Acquisition the ability to give a general overview of its revised ideas for the Base Village master plan. Snowmass Acquisition recently withdrew its application to extend its development rights in Base Village, which allows it to ask for such a meeting, said Julie Ann Woods, town community development director.

“We’re looking forward to the opportunity to bring these parties to the table and find consensus for the future of Base Village,” Woods said. “Opening lines of communication and finding areas of common ground are critical to moving this project forward successfully.”

The town is encouraging residents to attend the meetings and provide input. All meetings will take place in the Town Hall council chambers. The scheduled meetings are:

• 6 to 8 p.m. May 20

• 4 to 6 p.m. May 29

The third meeting date is to be determined and will be announced soon.

Those who cannot make the meetings in person can provide input online:
