Ten Mile Plan to be updated

COPPER MOUNTAIN – Updates to the Ten Mile Master Plan could help Intrawest scribe future development at Copper Mountain Resort.A community open house and public hearing will be held March 17 to gather input on the resort’s planned unit development (PUD), which sets out parameters for future development.Members of the Bill’s Ranch Homeowner’s Association and homeowners at Copper Mountain were involved in the overall update process and work sessions.Parking capacity was one of the issues discussed. Goals in the plan ensure that adequate parking is provided, but it includes a recommendation for parking requirements to be based on the tenth busiest day at Copper Mountain. Large events such as Gravity Games, set this year for March 3-6, are not counted in those 10 days. Commissioners expressed a desire to meet needs for parking at Copper on every day of the year.Public benefits were another issue of interest to county commissioners. Such benefits are often offered by developers in exchange for higher density.”They need ongoing public benefits,” said Commissioner Bill Wallace. “The days of a one-time benefit and then you’re done are gone.”Transfer of development rights (TDR) and flexibility in building rights in the center village – a neighborhood where redevelopment has already taken place – are among other updated issues in the plan.
