County for her steadfast commitment to the health and wellbeing of the youth and
teens in our community in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
II.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
Kate Elkins, the Executive Director of Grand Futures of Routt County is a remarkable
and passionate young professional that we have been fortunate to have in our
community. Since she assumed her role as the Executive Director with GFPC she has
been committed to going above and beyond in her role and duties with GFPC, the
Steamboat Springs Teen Council (SSTC) and the many programs she is involved. We
would like to take this time to thank her for her steadfast commitment to the health and
wellbeing of the youth and teens in our community in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
Kate Elkins is described by SSTC members as someone who genuinely cares about the

future of the youth and teens in our community. Kate is an outstanding professional, an
amazing mentor and a role model to many youth and teens in Routt County. We are all
better people because of knowing her and she inspires you to strive and seek for
excellence, education and knowledge.
About Grand Futures Prevention Coalition
Grand Futures Prevention Coalition (GFPC) mission is to create and support healthy,
positive lifestyle choices as alternatives to substance abuse for our youth and in our
community. Their vision is Healthy communities where positive lifestyle choices are the
norm. Grand Futures builds awareness and educates the community about Alcohol,
Tobacco and Other Drug (ATOD) issues. They promote, support and educate about
ATOD policies, empower youth to make positive choices related to ATOD use, and build
organizational capacity. Programs offered by GFPC are designed to enhance protective
factors and reverse risk factors associated with ATOD use. They rely on current research
showing that effective prevention efforts must utilize multiple strategies, be long-term,
and target diverse segments of the population.
History of Grand Futures Prevention Coalition
The Grand Futures Community Partnership was founded in 1990 in Grand County,
Colorado as a division of the 14th Judicial District Attorney's Office. The agency's primary
focus was to provide substance abuse prevention activities, education, and training to
youth and adults in Grand County.
In 1995, Grand Futures expanded in to Moffat and Routt Counties to become Grand
Futures Prevention Coalition (GFPC). Since that time, GFPC has demonstrated an
impressive ability to build community collaboration and implement effective substance
abuse prevention programs, thus distinguishing itself as a provider of high-quality services
throughout northwestern Colorado.
In 1997, GFPC obtained its 501(c)(3) status and separated from the District Attorney's
office. Throughout the past years, Grand Futures has remained true to its mission and
goals and has diversified its funding, currently receiving financial support from a variety of
state and federal grants as well as from local donations and grant making foundations.
About Steamboat Springs Teen Council
The Steamboat Springs Teen Council (SSTC) is in their 8th consecutive year; SSTC is
currently comprised of 21 high school students from the Steamboat Springs High School,
Heritage Christian School and Steamboat Mountain School with two adult coordinators,
Kate Warnke, City of Steamboat Springs Teen Programs and Kate Elkins, Grand Futures
Prevention Coalition. SSTC meets the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month (September
May) at a Centennial Hall. Meetings are open to the public and many outside
organizations attend and seek feedback, advice, support and service from the council.
SSTC has grown and accomplished amazing things in the community over the past eight
years.

SSTCs vision is a community where teens have a voice. Their mission is to demonstrate
that teens are valuable assets and are caring members of the community who are
committed to education, health/wellness, the environment and service. As a channel and
resource for all teens, we strive to open lines of communication and provide common
ground for teens and adults. SSTC serves to:

Identify the unmet needs of youth in the City of Steamboat Springs

Advocate for youth policies by making recommendations to City Council

Comment and make recommendations to City Council or any other decision making
group on any and all youth related matters

Provide an avenue of expression and comment for teens


History of Steamboat Springs Teen Council
The City of Steamboat Springs Teen Programs strives to provide safe, substance-free, and
affordable recreation alternatives for teens in our community. Teen Programs provides
recreation programming for 6th 12th graders and sponsors a variety of different
activities for teens in the community, such as after school programs, evening events, out
of town trips and outdoor adventures. Additionally, Teen Programs provides employment
opportunities for 14 to 16 year olds with the Community Youth Corps. The objectives of
our programs are to create a variety of recreation alternatives to meet the diverse needs
of teens in our community. We strive to offer programs that contribute to the physical,
mental, and social development of teens in our community.
Over the years the city staff consistently heard from teens in our programs that they were
not valued, respected or had a voice in our community. The city staff knew that it was
their responsibility to listen and respond to this unmet need. In the fall of 2007 Brooke
Lightner, City of Steamboat Springs Teen Programs and Colleen Lyon, Grand Futures
Prevention Coalition, established regular meetings with teens during the Steamboat
Springs High Schools lunch hour. In March of 2008 the meetings moved outside of the
Steamboat Springs High School, to include students from Lowell Whiteman School,
Christian Heritage, and the Yampa Valley High School in an effort to create a council
reflective of the larger teen community. In the fall of 2008 the Steamboat Springs Teen
Council (SSTC) was established and officers were elected for the 2008-2009 term. SSTC
designed a logo, developed a mission and vision statement, established goals and
prepared for presentations to the community.

2006-2008

SPECIAL QUALIFICATIONS APPLICABLE TO THE POLCE STATION


COMMITTEE:

No conflicts of interest and the ability to objectively review and analyze


information and data.

DESCRIBE YOUR PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AS A BOARD MEMBER OR A


TEAM MEMBER AND WHAT YOU FELT WAS YOUR STRONGEST
CONTRIBUTION TO THE TEAM. WHAT WERE THE OUTCOMES OF YOUR
PERSONAL CONTRIBUTION TO THOSE EFFORTS?

As a member of URAAC (Urban Redevelopment Area Advisory Committee)


and the Steamboat Airport Steering Committee made certain that all view
points were considered.
OUTCOME: Citizen confidence that the process was open.

As a member of URAAC (Urban Redevelopment Area Advisory Committee)


was a strong advocate of a snowmelt system for the promenade that was
opposed by some as too expensive to construct and/or operate.
As a member of URAAC (Urban Redevelopment Area Advisory Committee)
was concerned with the ever increasing costs associated with trying to
find an energy source (other than natural gas) to provide the energy to
operate a promenade snowmelt system.
As a former member of URAAC (Urban Redevelopment Area Advisory
Committee) continued to be a strong advocate of a snowmelt system for
the promenade and supported, at least installing the piping/plumbing for a
snowmelt system, when some (in 2009) wanted to reconsider a limited
snowmelt system in only potential problem areas such as stairways and
ramps.
OUTCOME: The Urban Renewal Authority approved a promenade with a
snowmelt system rather than a promenade without a snowmelt system (or
only a limited snowmelt system).

As a member of URAAC (Urban Redevelopment Area Advisory Committee)


was a strong advocate for a maintenance agreement with URA
stakeholders before construction was undertaken.
OUTCOME: The Urban Renewal Authority did not require a maintenance
agreement before construction of URA improvements began. Lesson
learned?

Provide an objective analysis of the scope, design and site selection


process by a person with no conflicts of interest.

WHAT, IN YOUR OPINION, ARE THE THREE MOST PRESSING ISSUES


FACING THE CITY OF STEAMBOAT SPRINGS RELATIVE TO THE POLICE
STATION?
1) Lack of citizen confidence in the process used in the scope, design
and site selection of a new Police Station.

3) Allow the Police Station Committee to undertake an independent
review.

Snowmelt a hot topic


The city will likely abandon a plan to install a direct
geothermal snowmelt system at the base area. The
system would primarily have been used to melt snow
on a promenade designed to span the bottom of the
ski slope, roughly from One Steamboat Place to
Slopeside Grill. Construction of the promenade is
scheduled to begin in 2009.
Kracum said three 500-foot holes were drilled in
locations around the base area in search of possible
geothermal activity, such as hot water, that could have
been used to melt snow. Kracum said only one of
those holes showed any promise, with temperatures
increasing more than usual at a depth of about 450
feet.
"If we wanted to keep investigating, we'd have to go
down 3,000 feet," Kracum said. "I don't suspect we're
going to be recommending that direction."
At $100 a foot, that project would cost the base area's
urban renewal authority $300,000, with no guarantee
of success. The first three holes cost $110,000.

At a meeting of the authority's advisory committee


Friday, the committee voted unanimously to
recommend to the Steamboat Springs City Council which acts as the city's redevelopment authority - that
it abandon the search for a direct geothermal source
of heating for a snowmelt system.
"We've chased this long enough," committee member
Bill Jameson said.
Kracum said another possibility would be to use
ground-source heat pumps, which pump water
through holes in the ground and absorb natural heat.
But that prospect also has problems. Kracum said
ground-source heat pumps would likely require about
1,000 holes at the base area, each 200-feet deep,
again with no guarantee of success.
"The thing is you don't get enough heat to melt snow,"
Kracum said of ground-source methods.
As such, the system will likely have to be
supplemented with a gas-fired boiler. Other options
include a system totally powered by a gas boiler or
abandoning the snowmelt system altogether in favor
of traditional snow removal methods.
"It would tickle me not to see snowmelt here," Dan
Koelliker, a mechanical engineering consultant, told
URAAC. "The carbon footprint is tremendous."

Snowmelt system tough to let go


The Urban Redevelopment Area Advisory Committee revived the
possibility Feb. 27 of a limited snowmelt system for the new promenade
at the base of the ski area.
The committee voted to ask Redevelopment Coordinator Joe Kracum to
include cost estimates for installing a snowmelt system in potential
problem areas such as stairways and ramps.
And the committee went one step further, agreeing to look into the
possibility of installing piping only for a future snowmelt system.
Pointing out that stretches of the promenade in front of new luxury
condo projects are almost certain to have developers provide snowmelt
systems, committee member Peter Patten urged the committee to
consider generating cost estimates for the piping.
Former committee member Bill Jameson backed him up.
"To not provide the plumbing would be rather short-sighted," he said.

http://www.steamboattoday.com/news/2015/mar/07/our-view-more-bang-urasbucks/

try to imagine the public improvements at


Steamboats ski base area, funded by a URA, without
Burgess Creek splashing over small waterfalls in
summer. Picture the promenade in winter without
gas-fired fire pits and snow-melted pavers. There was
a time, in 2007, when the Urban Renewal Authority
Advisory Committee at the mountain realized it would
not be able to heat the promenade with a geothermal
exchange system and almost gave in to the possibility
of removing snow and ice the old-fashioned way.
Now that we have firsthand evidence of how
transformative a heated promenade in Gondola
Square has been, we would never think of giving up on
that project.

SPECIAL QUALIFICATIONS APPLICABLE TO THE POLCE STATION


COMMITTEE:
Interested citizen, Planning Commissioner, development review
experience, Development and construction experience, plan reading,
Construction cost analysis experience

DESCRIBE YOUR PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AS A BOARD MEMBER OR A


TEAM MEMBER AND WHAT YOU FELT WAS YOUR STRONGEST
CONTRIBUTION TO THE TEAM. WHAT WERE THE OUTCOMES OF YOUR
PERSONAL CONTRIBUTION TO THOSE EFFORTS?
2 years on City of Steamboat Planning Commission (still serving)
and a summer on the City of Steamboat Stormwater Advisory committee.
I typically bring an objective, data driven approach to my decision
making. I am not one to regard highly the expansion of government
services but will absorb all pertinent information before drawing a
conclusion to a given problem.

During my time on PC we have successfully updated significant policy


standards (Urban Growth Boundary) as well as continuously moved
applicants through an often cumbersome process fairly and without
preconceived notions of prejudice.
WHY DO YOU WANT TO SERVE ON THE POLICE STATION COMMITTEE?

This process has been flawed from the start, with City staff leading
Council and not the other way around. I commend Council for
pushing the process back to it's origins and believe a citizen
committee can successfully approach this subject from a needsanalysis on forward.
Whether I am appointed or not, this committee needs a variable makeup
of interested parties without conflict or opportunity for gains. I can
fill such a role, having no relationship (personal or professional)
with anyone in the City's Public Safety area.

WHAT, IN YOUR OPINION, ARE THE THREE MOST PRESSING ISSUES


FACING THE CITY OF STEAMBOAT SPRINGS RELATIVE TO THE POLICE
STATION?

1) From the beginning of this process, the community at large has


not been provided compelling evidence of the need for such a large
capital project. The first priority of this committee would be an
audit of the needs-analysis to determine the validity of the project
as a whole.
2) As an outsider looking in, this project has been marred by the
perception that the City is looking to build an elaborate station
full of unnecessary conveniences. True or not, the design of the
station should receive significant scrutiny from this committee.
3) The committee will be tasked in finding consensus and presenting
a uniform recommendation to Council. This consensus represents one
of the more difficult tasks for the committee as the variety of
viewpoints is likely to be far-stretched.

3. Understanding capital spending programs and estimates. With
backgrounds in engineering, finance and construction, I was able to
assist in improving the quality of capital investmentsboth the
definitions of the projects as well as the cost estimates for them. In
that case, I subsequently managed $150 million in investments
successfully.
4. In addition to the corporate work, my wife and I have built several
homes and made significant modifications to others. I am very
comfortable working at a smaller scale than the corporate one.
DESCRIBE YOUR PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AS A BOARD MEMBER OR A
TEAM MEMBER AND WHAT YOU FELT WAS YOUR STRONGEST
CONTRIBUTION TO THE TEAM. WHAT WERE THE OUTCOMES OF YOUR
PERSONAL CONTRIBUTION TO THOSE EFFORTS?
Vision 2030 for
example, guided structure for overall process; helped develop surveys,
gather and analyze results; as Committee Chairman, guided the public
outreach efforts.
At RNEC worked to assure that the citizen survey was specifically targeted
to likely voters, so that the results would provide City Council with valid,
actionable information.
In corporate life, guiding a global function through a triple merger,
rationalizing people, investments and processes.
Currently working with an educational fund raising arm of a European
University, assisting Donor Representatives in meeting their financial
goals.
WHY DO YOU WANT TO SERVE ON THE POLICE STATION COMMITTEE?
The proposed new police station has been the focus of too much
controversy from the outset, and so, voters, residents of Steamboat
Springs are likely predisposed against it. So, any plan may well not get a
fair hearing unless it is clearly demonstrated through the committee and its
methods and processes that it did a thorough job in coming to its
conclusions. My background in leading cross-functional and crosscultural teams (both permanent and ad hoc) making very difficult
investment and divestment decisions, I know, will go a long way in helping
sell the conclusions.

And, as a taxpaying resident, I am very interested that my tax dollars are


most effectively and most efficiently well-spent. I chose to move here, I
choose to live here, I like the town and its residents and want very much to
see it thrive.
WHAT, IN YOUR OPINION, ARE THE THREE MOST PRESSING ISSUES
FACING THE CITY OF STEAMBOAT SPRINGS RELATIVE TO THE POLICE
STATION?
Not in a prioritized order:
1. It isnt clear to the average voterwho is paying attention to this
issuethat we need a new police station, that the new police station
needs to be sited east / south of town, that the new police station, if
needed cannot be economically and functionally combined with the
existing county building(s) on the west / north side of town. Any
solution must address these issues for the potential voter.
2. That the new police station can be economically built without
sacrifice to other equally urgent, equally important investment
decisions facing the city.
3. That the new police station satisfies the citys needs adequately for a
reasonable period of time. That is, the city will not have to readdress
the decision in less than say 10 years at least.
OTHER COMMENTS:
A small suggestion only: City Council should think that the way this
decision is handled going forward helps demonstrate to the voters that City
Council / City Administration is capable of making significant, sound, wellthought-out, well-structured long-term investment / divestment decisions.
IOW showing what decisions need to be made first, then next, etc.

SENATOR JACK TAYLOR, short form bio


Senator Jack Taylor was raised on a farm in Iowa and graduated from Iowa State

University. He and his brother still own and manage the operation of their family farm
which has been in the family for over 100 years. He was in the Navy R.OTC program in
college and is a Navy Veteran.

His large corporation experience includes working on the Apollo Moon Landing Project
with Boeing Aerospace in New Orleans, and workmg in Kuwait on a management team

with Peat Marwick MitcheU constmcting and staffing the first oil refinery in Kuwait.
Jack's small business experience and ownership started when he moved to Steamboat
Springs in 1969 and established his own real estate company, and was later a hands-on
and active partner/owner/operator in a small coal mining operation.
Jack served 8 years in the Colorado House of Representatives and 8 years in the Senate.
Senator Taylor knows and understands the issues m rural Colorado and worked hard on
water, tourism, skiing, small business, education, children's issues, health insurance,
home healthcare, energy, environmental, agriculture issues along with senior citizens and
veterans issues. He also was instrumental in providing better telecommunication access
in Northwest Colorado. A quote from one of his metro peers is "he's a bulldog on those
rural concerns that might otherwise get run over by the Front Range point of view".
Perhaps his most unique legislative status came j&om his time as an AIl-Conference

varsity baseball player at Iowa State. He is believed to be the only member ever of the
Colorado General Assembly to have played m a College World Series.
Jack and his wife, Geneva, have one married daughter and two grandchildren.
Senator Taylor served as Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, the Agriculture and
Natural Resources Committee, and was a member and three-time chairman of the
Legislative Audit Committee and a member of the Water Resources Review Committee
and the Colorado Tourism Board. Senator Taylor was the West Slope's senior legislator.
"Hands on experience counts" and, over the 16 years he served in the Colorado General

Assembly, he applied COMMON SENSE and BUSINESS EXPERIENCE to pass over


80% of the legislation on which he was the prime sponsor. He was LEGISLATIVELY

EFFECTF^E.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A RESIDENT OF STEAMBOAT SPRINGS? 8 years


CURRENT OCCUPATION/EMPLOYER:

I own and operate Cantina restaurant and E3 Chophouse

PREVIOUS WORK EXPERIENCE:

I was a professional baseball player for 7 years, I then


was with ski patrol in Beaver Creek for 2 years, I was
then a police officer for 7 years, 3 of which were here in
Steamboat. I bought Cantina about 4 years ago, E3 has
been running for just over a year.
APPLICABLE COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES/VOLUNTEER WORK:
I serve on three boards, two are condominium boards and the other is the
Chief Theatre board Vice President. I have also put in work with Chris Paoli
on the TIF and URA for downtown.

SPECIAL QUALIFICATIONS APPLICABLE TO THE POLCE STATION


COMMITTEE:

I have been a police officer and I know what they need and do not need in a new station.. I
came from a new station in Glenwood Springs to a relatively old station in Steamboat. I can
tell you what makes sense functionally as well as what does not make sense. I have also
worked on several capitol projects in the development stages and have a good knowledge of

construction. I have worked with several projects and can value engineer just about any
project if need be.

DESCRIBE YOUR PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AS A BOARD MEMBER OR A


TEAM MEMBER AND WHAT YOU FELT WAS YOUR STRONGEST
CONTRIBUTION TO THE TEAM. WHAT WERE THE OUTCOMES OF YOUR
PERSONAL CONTRIBUTION TO THOSE EFFORTS?

As a member of STS board, I worked to value engineer a complete building overhaul that cost
86 owners a total of 1.5 million. I was the sole contact for all contractors and boots were on the
ground every day. At the Chief, I have helped take a failing business into a Non Profit that
provides a needed entity to downtown as well as work to make it make sense monetarily for
everyone involved. I worked hand in hand with Scott Parker and Mary McClurg to renegotiate a
lease and a purchase of the Chief theatre.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO SERVE ON THE POLICE STATION COMMITTEE?

I believe that with my past experience as being on the SSPD and on Patrol for a number of years
I can serve a purpose in helping the board decipher what is needed in the PD as well as the
functionality of location, flow and design of the new police department.

WHAT, IN YOUR OPINION, ARE THE THREE MOST PRESSING ISSUES


FACING THE CITY OF STEAMBOAT SPRINGS RELATIVE TO THE POLICE
STATION?

The current station is outdated and does not flow correctly at all
The evidence room is way way too small and is not streamlined
The patrol room is outdated and over populated
(4) There is no security measures in place in the parking lot in general and the PD has
minimal security inside for the officers.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A RESIDENT OF STEAMBOAT SPRINGS? 27


years

CURRENT OCCUPATION/EMPLOYER: Yampa Valley Bank

PREVIOUS WORK EXPERIENCE: Wells Fargo Bank for 32 years.

APPLICABLE COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES/VOLUNTEER WORK:


See attached resume for a list of community involvement. But with that

said here are a couple community groups I have worked with; The Legacy
Committee, Yampa Valley Medical Center, Strings in the Mountains, Perry

Mansfield, Routt County 4-H, Steamboat Rotary, Ski Town USA Rotary Club,
Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo, Mountain Village Partnership and a few
others I cannot remember.

SPECIAL QUALIFICATIONS APPLICABLE TO THE POLCE STATION


COIV11VIITTEE: I have served on several Boards when decisions were made
to find new locations and build facilities; The hospital, Strings in the
Mountains, and Hospice/VNA, I have a good understanding of the decision
process and the factors which need to be considered when relocating both
non-profits and businesses.

DESCRIBE YOUR PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AS A BOARD MEMBER OR A


TEAM MEMBER AND WHAT YOU FELT WAS YOUR STRONGEST
CONTRIBUTION TO THE TEAM, WHAT WERE THE OUTCOtVlES OF YOUR
PERSONAL CONTRIBUTION TO THOSE EFFORTS?
I would say the success both the hospital has enjoyed at it's new location
and the success of the Legacy Committee in acquiring both property and
easements for public use.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO SERVE ON THE POLICE STATION COIVIIVUTTEE?


I believe Steamboat Springs has an opportunity to relocate the
police/public safety building to better serve this growing community. At it's
current location the current facility has served this community very well.

With that said the community is growing and old town is not necessarily
the best location. I think I can bring an objective opinion about what other
possible locations can serve this community in the future.

WHAT, IN YOUR OPINION, ARE THE THREE MOST PRESSING ISSUES


FACING THE CITY OF STEAMBOAT SPRINGS RELATIVE TO THE POLICE

STATION?

1. Helping the community better understand the need for a new

facility.
2. Finding and acquiring the new location if it is decided we need a
new facility at a new location,

3. Obtaining the financing of a new facility, if that is the direction the


community wants to proceed with,

OTHER COMMENTS:
One concern that I have is my preference not to have late afternoon or
evening meetings. If the Committee can meet in the morning or at Noon I
am interested in serving on the Committee. If the Committee chooses to
meet late afternoon or evening I will probably not have an interest.

I feel I have the background to make a contribution to this Committee and


very much appreciate you considering my interest in serving this wonderful
community. Thanks John

CURRENT OCCUPATION/EMPLOYER: Retired
PREVIOUS WORK EXPERIENCE: U.S. Government, paralegai/ and court reporter over a period of 25
years.

APPUCABLE COMMUNITY ACTiVITIES/VOLUNTEER WORK: Steamboat Springs Planning Commission,


1990-1993; United Way board/ early 1990s; Habitat for Humanities.

SPECIAL QUALIFiCATiONS APPLiCABLE TO THE POLICE STATION COMMITTEE: The Steamboat Springs
Planning Commission held meetings in the Public Safety Building. I have first-hand experience at how
inadequate the entire space was 20 years ago. Simply, the space did not work then and does not work
now.

DESCRIBE YOUR PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AS A BOARD MEMBER OR A TEAM MEMBER AND WHAT YOU
FELT WAS YOUR STRONGEST CONTRIBUTION TO THE TEAM. WHAT WERE THE OUTCOMES OF YOUR
PERSONAL CONTRiBUTON TO THOSE EFFORTS? The City Code was revised during the time 1 served on
Planning Commission/ which required many hours of volunteer time beyond the normal functions of the
commission. My strongest contribution to the team was that I was a counter-balance to the "pave and
build at any cost" members.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO SERVE ON THE POLICE STATION COMMITTEE? I want to serve on the Police
Station Committee because our police department needs and deserves workable and safe facilities for
itself and the community at large. A strong, visibie law enforcement presence in a community deters
crime.

WHAT/ IN YOUR OPINION, ARE THE THREE MOST PRESSING ISSUES FACING THE CITY OF STEAMBOAT
SPRiNGS RELATiVE TO THE POLICE STATION: Inadequate space, poor working condition, and location.
OTHER COMMENTS: In my prior court reporting career in the Northern Virginia/Washington/ D.C. area, I
was very famiiiar with law enforcement agencies/ courtrooms, jails and federal prisons. I worked in

every possible building from the very old to modern construction and saw how law enforcement
personnel (and mysejf) acted and reacted to their work environment.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A RESIDENT OF STEAMBOAT SPRINGS? 2 Months


CURRENT OCCUPATION/EMPLOYER:
Self-Employed, Renewed Concepts, LLC.

PREVIOUS WORK EXPERIENCE:

10 years as Commercial Construction Project Manager and Superintendent.


8 years as Home Builder.
2 years as Entrepreneur and Business owner.
APPLICABLE COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES/VOLUNTEER WORK:

Volunteering for the arts council for improvements to the arts depot site.

SPECIAL QUALIFICATIONS APPLICABLE TO THE POLCE STATION


COMMITTEE:

I am a newer resident to Steamboat Springs but I was born and raised in


Walden, CO, so I have long been coming to this city. I have bought a home here
and will be planting long term roots in this community, so I believe that helping
to ensure its continued success is not only a privilege but a responsibility.
I am great at working with others, and I have very relevant experience. Working
within the private sector, I have constructed buildings for, and in, over 15 different
municipalities and Governments including the State of CO, State of WY, City's
of Fort Collins, Boulder, Denver, Centennial, Fort Lupton, Laramie, Cheyenne
and Walden. As well as University buildings at CSU, CU, UW and LCCC. It is
my great fortune to have time to donate and I will be happy to assist in anyway
that may be helpful.
DESCRIBE YOUR PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AS A BOARD MEMBER OR A
TEAM MEMBER AND WHAT YOU FELT WAS YOUR STRONGEST
CONTRIBUTION TO THE TEAM. WHAT WERE THE OUTCOMES OF YOUR
PERSONAL CONTRIBUTION TO THOSE EFFORTS?

I volunteered for a 501(c)3 fund raising organization called SOUL for the several
years that I lived in Denver, CO. My contributions with donations, small construction
projects, volunteer organization and planning, and other things were well praised.
I learned through pervious volunteering that my strong communication skills, allow
me to work well with others toward a common goal. I have a good attitude, combined
with a diligent work ethic and business structured mind that has proven to be
successful in the business community, and I believe these same traits could be a
asset for this project.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO SERVE ON THE POLICE STATION COMMITTEE?

I have had the privilege to travel and volunteer abroad in 4 different countries
around the world. I have learned that volunteering is a strong way to give support,
but through my volunteering experiences, I have found that the strongest impact is
made through volunteering in your local community, over the long term. So I wanted
to begin to become involved in my new community, in a way that my experience could
also be utilized, that is why I thought that this project could be a good fit for me.

WHAT, IN YOUR OPINION, ARE THE THREE MOST PRESSING ISSUES


FACING THE CITY OF STEAMBOAT SPRINGS RELATIVE TO THE POLICE
STATION?

1.) Gaining community support through planning for a needed project.


2.) Maximizing allocation of funds for the long term success of the project.
3.) Generating project phasing so funds are only spent when the route to
success is clearly defined through timing, budget and concept.

OTHER COMMENTS:

I would be honored to assist with this project, but if the decision is made to pursue
better suited candidates than myself, I am still ready and willing to volunteer an any
way that I could be of assistance, even if it not on this project.

Please attach any documentation that would enhance your application.

CURRENT OCCUPATION/EMPLOYER: Program Coordinator, Northwest Colorado

PREVIOUS WORK EXPERIENCE: See attached resume

APPLICABLE COMlVlUNIPr ACTIVITIESA/OLUNTEER WORK:

2006
Routt County Wildland Fire Management Planning Team, 2001 - 2004
Original Deign Committee for Routt County Justice Center

SPECIAL QUALIFICATIONS APPLICABLE TO THE POLCE STATION COMIVHTTEE:


Original Design Committee for Routt county Justice Center - 2002. Gained

understanding of public service facility development that requires specific


programmatic space development while meeting building codes.
Understanding of community development process through extensive
planning case reviews as a member of City Council.
Numerous design standard reviews of downtown projects as Chair of the
Design Committee for Mainstreet Steamboat Springs.

DESCRIBE YOUR PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AS A BOARD MEMBER OR A TEAM


MEMBER AND WHAT YOU FELT WAS YOUR STRONGEST CONTRIBUTION TO

THE TEAM. WHAT WERE THE OUTCOMES OF YOUR PERSONAL CONTRIBUTION


TO THOSE EFFORTS?
I have served in numerous governance positions that have required short and
long range planning and consensus building. Whether in the nonprofit, civic or
private sector, the contribution of my pragmatic leadership skills has resulted in
positive impacts ranging from organizational development/re-structuring to major
public project development. Always a risk taker, the most successful projects I
have been involved with have been amid intense public scrutiny. Two that come

to the forefront are 1) the support of the Mountain Base URA (2005) and 2) the
first nationally advertised public art award and project development with city and
National Endowment for the Arts funds (1993).

WHY DO YOU WANT TO SERVE ON THE POLICE STATION COMMITTEE?


I believe our community's basic infrastructure needs have been, for some time,
nickel and dimed in long range planning processes and within our challenging
tax structure. With the basic health safety and welfare of our citizens at stake, I

would like to contribute to the development of a public safety facility deserving of


all of our citizens. I believe my civic service back ground and leadership skills will
add to the success of this citizen committee in accomplishing this goal.

WHAT, IN YOUR OPINION, ARE THE THREE MOST PRESSING ISSUES FACING
THE CITY OF STEAMBOAT SPRINGS RELATIVE TO THE POLICE STATION?
Relationship of our new public safety facility to other infrastructure needs
in the larger community.
Quality site and site development that meets programmatic needs for our

new public safety facility.


Fiscal investment that does not compromise programmatic needs while
fitting into challenging sales tax based capital improvement plan budget.

OTHER COMMENTS: Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of my


application. I am excited to re-engage in a large scale community project.
Please attach any documentation that would enhance your application.

careful review of alternatives, and development of a process for reaching a timely decision.

Expertise with budget preparation, analysis, and presentation

Expertise with financial statements, accounting, and analysis of financial information

Computer skills with spreadsheets, presentations, and internet-based communications

Negotiating partnerships and community development opportunities

I was interviewed and chosen as the consultant to the Selection Committee of the Winter Sports Club to
advise with the search process, position criteria, advertising, interviewing, selection, and recommendation to
the Board of Directors for a new Executive Director. The committee and I met twice a week during the
summer of 2013 and I participated in the presentation of the committee recommendation to the Board in
August. My contributions to the committee included:
- a recommendation for personal and electronic networking through community contacts and ski industry
executives in addition to print advertising in industry publications,
- encouraging open dialogue and consensus-building among diverse selection committee members,
- setting up an on-line communication tool for committee members to present job requirements, collect written
applications, and confidentially store applicant resumes,
- leadership in developing interview questions and process decisions for finalist in-person interviews,
- assisting with the presentation of the selected candidate to the SSWSC Board including written and oral
presentations.
The outcome was the successful hire of an outstanding business leader who has demonstrated his abilities to
lead the club members and staff, build community relationships, and set strategic directions for the future.

I believe that my consulting, financial, and business leadership expertise can help bring forward a logical
and explainable solution to a difficult decision that has political, operational, and financial components. I
have no pre-conceived ideas, no political connections, and no financial biases that would in any way make
this decision more complicated than it already is. There appears to be a need for a thorough analysis of
all the divergent needs that can lead to a necessary decision and I believe I have the personal and
business skills to help with that process.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A RESIDENT OF STEAMBOAT SPRINGS? 15 years


CURRENT OCCUPATION/EMPLOYER:

Redevelopment Program Manager, City of Fort Collins


PREVIOUS WORK EXPERIENCE:

Planning & Community Development Director, City of Steamboat Springs


Associate, Clarion Associates
APPLICABLE COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES/VOLUNTEER WORK:

This would be one of my first forays into community volunteer work. I have been involved in
community decision making processes my entire career, however, it has always been in a
professional capacity. I look forward to being able to provide my expertise on a volunteer basis.

SPECIAL QUALIFICATIONS APPLICABLE TO THE POLCE STATION


COMMITTEE:
I am a land use planning professional with 18 years of experience in land planning and site
analysis, real estate development, project management, public-private partnerships, community
relations and public process, real estate financial analysis.

As a former planner for the City of Steamboat Springs, I have a sound understanding of the
land use planning and development issues, the community development code, and the issues
surrounding the need for a new police station.
In my current capacity as Redevelopment Program Manager for Fort Collins, I lead complex
negotiations for property acquisition and disposition, analyze public financing mechanisms, and
negotiate public/private redevelopment projects.
DESCRIBE YOUR PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AS A BOARD MEMBER OR A
TEAM MEMBER AND WHAT YOU FELT WAS YOUR STRONGEST
CONTRIBUTION TO THE TEAM. WHAT WERE THE OUTCOMES OF YOUR
PERSONAL CONTRIBUTION TO THOSE EFFORTS?

I have been on numerous project teams throughout my career and feel that my strength as
a team member comes from my ability to objectively look at issues and present solutions
based on the interests of the parties involved as opposed to some preconceived, biased
opinion.
My most recent example is my particpation on the City of Fort Collins negotiating team
that negotiated the Redevelopment Agreement with Alberta Development Partners that
provided $53M is public assistance for the redevelopment of the aging Foothills Mall.
While representing the City's interest, I played an important role in understanding and
articulating both sides of the issues which resulted in an agreement that has been viewed as
favorable by both sides and an example of a true partnership.
WHY DO YOU WANT TO SERVE ON THE POLICE STATION COMMITTEE?

I believe the decision to move forward with a capital project of this magnitude should be
made with the upmost respect for a transparent public process. Public projects are held
to a higher standard in terms of transparency and public participation. Given the history
of the police station project to date, this citizen committee will help to restore the
commuity's confidence in the decision making process. Given my background and
expertise, I believe I can contribute to the committee's ability to examine the issues
surrounding the police station and help to provide the City Council with a
recommendation that is based on sound analysis and is, ultimately, best for the
community.

WHAT, IN YOUR OPINION, ARE THE THREE MOST PRESSING ISSUES


FACING THE CITY OF STEAMBOAT SPRINGS RELATIVE TO THE POLICE
STATION?

Trust and Credibility: The need for a new police station has been discussed for years by City staff, by
City Councils, and by the overall community; however, a lack of trust and credibility has stalled an
important community project. It is critical the citizen's committee follow a transparent process that
results in a decision that helps to regain the trust of the community.
Location: The selection of a site for a new police station must take into account the unique
requirements of such a facility, such as response times, access, visibility, surrounding uses, and
acreage given the community characteristics of today, as well as the future. This must be balanced
with the underlying zoning of a particular area, as well as the highest and best use of a particular site.
Fiscal Responsibility and Efficiency: Construction costs are extremely high these days so an analysis
must be completed that looks at methods to control costs, while meeting the needs of the community
in terms of public safety. This could include partnerships with other public entities, public-private
partnerships, or other methods that result in an increased economy of scale. Various financing
strategies should be evaluated, as well as the design of the facility to ensure the community is getting
the biggest ban for the buck.

SPECIAL QUALIFICATIONS APPLICABLE TO THE POLCE STATION
COMMITTEE:

My specific qualifications include both education and professional experience related to


business finance, economics, building materials, and construction. I have intimate
experience creating and adhering to budgets; both small and multi-million dollar in size.
I am versed in risk management related to balance sheet financing and the upside and
downside tradeoffs of various financing techniques. By participating in local groups and
committees I have demonstrated an ability to create and strengthen partnerships. In
addition, I have kept up to date with current issues facing the City of Steamboat Springs
and the surrounding area.

DESCRIBE YOUR PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AS A BOARD MEMBER OR A


TEAM MEMBER AND WHAT YOU FELT WAS YOUR STRONGEST
CONTRIBUTION TO THE TEAM. WHAT WERE THE OUTCOMES OF YOUR
PERSONAL CONTRIBUTION TO THOSE EFFORTS?
My involvement with the Young Professionals Network over the last 3+ years has
been by far the most rewarding. Being involved in and knowledgable of community
events, as well as a consistent approach to problem solving and an ability to challenge
the status quo, were my largest contributions to the YPN Board. While Chair last year,
our organization raised over $16,000 for local charities, grew its membership from
60 to 105, made a yearly profit for first time, and recruited several new board members
to grow the organization going forward. While serving on the Steamboat Pilot & Todays
editorial board, I presented novel view points which were incorporated into stories that
then influenced local dialog in a positive way.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO SERVE ON THE POLICE STATION COMMITTEE?


This is a unique opportunity to be involved and find a path forward for a critical issue
facing our community. My goal is to find, and establish reasoning behind, a logical
solution that continues to make sense for the community years and decades down
the road. Very simply, the police station committee is a chance to help shape a better
future for our community. Also, with having family in law enforcement (however not in
the Steamboat Springs PD) I understand how crucial it is for the people that protect us
to have the resources they need to do their job.

WHAT, IN YOUR OPINION, ARE THE THREE MOST PRESSING ISSUES


FACING THE CITY OF STEAMBOAT SPRINGS RELATIVE TO THE POLICE
STATION?

Very simply, the most pressing issues are captured well in the directive of the Police
Station committee. Below are the three issues I see as most pressing:
1. Site location - What makes the most sense for location in regards to the response
times for emergency calls, access to other local services, and future private
development (including, but not limited to, the downtown area and Yampa Street).
2. Building Size - In order to be most effective, what does our police force need to do their
job; and what additional amenities would aid in operations, training, or retention that
doesnt dramatically increase costs.
3. Financing - With respect to the financial position of the City, where is the most logical
place for the funds for construction to come from, whether it be reserves, debt, a
combination of the two, or another currently unknown alternative.

OTHER COMMENTS:
Im looking forward to the opportunity to serve our community with a pragmatic and
common sense approach.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

The Iron Horse Inn was purchased by the City in November, 2007 with the intention of
providing rental housing for transitional, seasonal, and year-round employees of the
City and the private sector. The property consists of two structures: Building A, the
hotel, has 1 two-bedroom unit and 25 motel/dorm rooms; Building B, the apartments,
has 3 one-bedroom units and 24 efficiencies. The Inn transitioned from hotel
operations to workforce housing in November, 2008 under the management of a local
property management company. The management company and the City mutually
agreed to terminate the agreement in February, 2009. From June to November, 2009
the City operated the entire facility with month to month leases for local, workforce
housing. During this interim, the City issued a Request for Proposal for management
and operations of the Inn, with two proposals received. In December, 2009, the City
entered into a lease agreement with New West Inns, who proposed to operate the
property with nightly and monthly rentals.
Initial capital costs and the lagging economy resulted in a slow start for New West. The
City worked with New West by waiving lease payments for January and February and
deferring lease payments for March through June. In November, 2010, City Council
approved to restructure the lease with a monthly rent of $11,000 and no percentage
share in the annual net profit. Unfortunately, New West was not able to meet the terms
of the agreement and the lease was terminated in January, 2011. From January 2011,
to November, 2012, the City operated the Inn with nightly and monthly rentals.
Because the operating expenses outpaced the revenue stream, Building A was closed in
November, 2012 and the City continued to operate Building B with monthly rentals
which continue to the present. The Citys primary goal is to operate the Iron Horse Inn
as cost effectively as possible while maintaining appropriate levels of tenant services.
In September 2014, in response to an improved economy, a local hotel, the Steamboat
Sheraton, requested to lease Building A in its entirety for the upcoming winter ski
season in an effort to secure housing for their seasonal employees. The lease runs from
December 1, 2014 through March 31, 2015 at the rate of $18,000 per month.
Various parties have contacted the City requesting to purchase, repurpose, manage,
and/or redevelop the property. The purpose of this Request for Proposal is to determine
the best and highest use for the property.
Since January, 2011, the City has spent $183,000 in repairs and maintenance, which
include roof repairs and partial replacement on the apartment building, roof replacement
on the hotel, structural repairs to the exterior apartment stairs, HVAC upgrades, new

carpeting, gutter systems, lighting upgrades, key system upgrades, paint (exterior and
interior) and some electrical upgrades. A recent appraisal values the property at $1.6
million.
Additional documentation regarding the property including floor plans, the Phase I
Environmental Site Assessment, photographs, survey, Asbestos Report, structural
inspection report and appraisal can be found on the Citys website:
http://steamboatsprings.net/DocumentCenter/Index/400.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

As Council is aware, the October, 2007 purchase of the Iron Horse Inn occurred at a time of very
low unemployment when housing was needed for several local entities including the City. In order
to recruit bus drivers in 2006 and 2007, the City rented housing for seasonal drivers at a cost of
$40,500 for the 2006/2007 winter season. Since its purchase, the property has been operated and
managed under a variety of scenarios. See the attached summary and timeline of those various
methods of operation.
Since January, 2011, the City has spent $183,000 in repairs and maintenance, which include roof
repairs and partial replacement on the apartment building, roof replacement on the hotel,
structural repairs to the exterior apartment stairs, HVAC upgrades, new carpeting, gutter systems,
lighting upgrades, key system upgrades, paint (exterior and interior) and some electrical upgrades.
A recent appraisal values the property at $1.6 million.
Currently, the hotel building, whose use has been converted to a dormitory, is rented to the
Steamboat Sheraton Resort for employee housing. The Sheraton continues to express interest in
renting the building for 3 4 months in the summer and then again the following ski season.
There may be interest among other members of the lodging community to partner with the
Sheraton in providing employee housing to address their seasonal staffing needs and the shortage
of workforce housing. It is also feasible to consider the dormitory as a means of recruiting seasonal
transit drivers.
Todays operations generate approximately $18,000 per month ($216,000 annually) from the 26
apartment units and $18,000 per month ($72,000 over 4 months) from the Sheraton renting 23
units in the dormitory (hotel) building. If Council desires to continue providing affordable workforce
housing for the foreseeable future, additional ongoing maintenance and repairs are necessary.
Over the course of the next 10 to 20 years, both buildings will need electrical and plumbing
upgrades, roof replacement for the primary apartment structure, parking lot and drainage repairs,
drywall repairs/replacement and structural upgrades at a cost of $100,000 - $200,000 per year.
The collateral obligation related to the debt used to purchase the property was recently moved to
the Public Works campus relieving the Iron Horse of any constraints involved with changing the
use, demolishing and redeveloping or selling the property. Over the past year, staff has been
approached by several entities (individuals and corporations) seeking to purchase the property. It
is important to note that the City will continue to pay annually on the debt at a cost of
approximately $480,000 per year until 2032. The first opportunity to pay the debt off in full ($5
million) will come in December of 2018.
Now that no restrictions exist, staff seeks Councils input on future uses of the property.

____ INFORMATION

I. REQUEST OR ISSUE:
A resolution that dedicates to public use a roadway easement at the Anglers Drive
crossing of the Union Pacific Railroad tracks.
II.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

In 2008 the City petitioned the Public Utilities Commission to convert the then private
railroad crossing of Anglers Drive to a public crossing. The purpose of the conversion
was to improve access to the Fish Creek Mobile Home Park.
As part of the conversion process the City entered into a crossing agreement with the
Union Pacific Railroad. The crossing agreement included the conveyance by the railroad
of an easement to the City for public road purposes over the Union Pacific tracks.
The crossing agreement included a provision that the City would dedicate the easement
to public use. This provision is somewhat redundant because the language of the

conveyance effectively dedicates the easement to public use. However, it is harmless


and the City did not object to its inclusion in the crossing agreement.
The Yampa Valley Housing Authority is in the process of seeking to refinance debt
secured by the Fish Creek Mobile Home Park. The title company insuring the Housing
Authoritys title has requested that the City perfect the access easement and the Mobile
Home Parks access rights by formally dedicating the easement to public use
III. LEGAL ISSUES. None. The proposed resolution will have no practical impact on
the Citys property rights. It is a formality intended to satisfy the Yampa Valley Housing
Authoritys title company.
IV. FISCAL IMPACTS. None.

protect public regional stormwater management activities.

FORM OF MOTION: Move to approve resolution supporting Colorado state


legislation to protect public regional stormwater
management activities.

_
X
___

I.

ORDINANCE
RESOLUTION
MOTION
INFORMATION

REQUEST/ISSUE & BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

Having remained silent on regional stormwater management since 1972, the State
Engineer has recently determined that regional public stormwater detention constitutes
a diversion of water that is subject to water rights administration. If this determination
holds, Water rights administration would require that regional detention facilities obtain
a water court decree for a plan for augmentation, a costly, time-consuming, and
litigious endeavor.

This change in administrative course would impact regional facilities. The State
Engineer does operate a policy entitled Administrative Approach for Storm Water
Management, which exempts private detention facilities associated with new
development on individual sites from water rights administration.

Water Rights and the State Engineers administration of the existing rules are an
important component of Colorado law. Retention of water is not allowed by City
Drainage Criteria for storm water management and is regulated by the State Engineer
via the Water Courts. Unlike retention, detention facilities are designed to slow the
release of drainage resulting from a storm event over a set time period (maximum 72
hours). This management technique is an important tool for mitigating flood impacts
and providing storm water quality treatment.
The 2014 Citywide Stormwater Master Plan identified a number of locations where
regional detention facilities would be a tool for mitigating flood impacts to the City of
Steamboat Springs. These regional facilities function to protect downstream properties
during storm events and serve to avoid costly or impractical improvements to
downstream infrastructure. The modified administrative approach that the State
Engineer is now applying may preclude the construction of a regional detention facility
without going through a lengthy and costly water rights augmentation process.
Effective management of stormwater entering into and originating within urban areas is
essential to protect public health and safety and to comply with state and federal law
relating to storm water management. While the City does not currently have a plan for
construction of any regional detention facilities, effectively removing this tool for
managing flood impacts and treatment of stormwater runoff would hamper the Citys
ability to serve its citizenry.

LEGAL ISSUES:
None

VI.

CONFLICTS OR ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES:

The City operates an MS4 (Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System) permit issued by the
CDPHE requiring that the City adequately manage the storm water quality released to the
river and creeks from urban areas. Detention facilities provide a viable option for
treatment of that storm water run-off and can help manage the peak flows from urban
environments in a manner replicating natural flow patterns.

Re: Support of Legislation to Protect Public Regional Stormwater Management Activities
Dear Mr. MacKenzie:
There is significant evidence that management of runoff using detention facilities can be an
essential tool to preserve lives, protect public health and safety, avoid damage to downstream
property and stream systems, and to comply with the Federal Clean Water Act. Regional
stormwater detention facilities mitigate flood impacts while minimizing water quality impacts. The
City of Steamboat Springs has not historically relied on regional detention facilities for mitigation
of the impacts of runoff, however recent hydrologic studies have identified some potential
opportunities to provide flood protection for major storm events in historically developed areas.
The State Engineer has historically recognized that stormwater detained for no more than 72-hours
has limited impact on beneficial uses downstream and has exempted these facilities from water
rights administration. A change in the approach to administration of detention facilities, especially
for those mitigating major storm events, may in effect remove a valuable tool for communities to
protect their population as a result of the costly and time-consuming litigation of any required
augmentation process. Striking a balance between the protection of public safety and the efficient
use of public dollars may become unnecessarily difficult for small, west-slope municipalities like
Steamboat Springs without due consideration for a de minimus impact provision for storm water
detention facilities.
Therefore, the City of Steamboat Springs supports the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District
(UDFCD) in its effort to work to define regional stormwater detention facilities as non-injurious to
water rights holders, mindful that that the State Engineer may desire to define some minimum
criteria for such facilities.
Sincerely,

Bart Kounovsky

City Council

from these facilities cannot be put to beneficial use.
A "storm water detention and infiltration facility" is defined as a
facility that is designed and operated to continuously release or infiltrate
at least 97% of all of the water from rainfall events that are equal to or
less than a 5-year storm within 72 hours after the end of the rainfall event,
and continuously release the water from rainfall events greater than a
5-year storm as quickly as practicable while detaining water only long
enough to protect public safety and minimize damage to downstream
property and the environment.
A "post-wildland fire facility" means a facility that is not
permanent; is located on, in, or adjacent to a nonperennial stream; is
designed and operated solely for the mitigation of the impacts of wildland
fire events; and is designed and operated to minimize the quantity of
water detained and the duration of the detention of water to the levels
necessitated by public safety and welfare. The person who installed or
operated a post-wildland fire facility has to ensure that the facility is
removed or rendered inoperable after the emergency conditions created
by the wildfire no longer exist.

II. RECOMMENDED ACTION:
Introduce the ordinance.
III.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The City in January of 2014 contracted with Airport Development Group (ADG) for the
construction of five hangar units in three buildings at the Steamboat Springs airport.
ADG performed the project through an entity known as SBS Hangars II, LLC. As part

of the project the City and SBS Hangars II, LLC entered into a Master Ground Lease
Agreement pursuant to which the City leased the project site to SBS Hangars II, LLC.
Maintenance obligations.
In December 2014 the City and ADG realized there was a disagreement as to the extent
of the maintenance obligations imposed by the Master Ground Lease. The City Council
on February 25, 2015 granted ADGs request to amend the Master Ground Lease to
clarify ADGs maintenance obligations. The proposed ordinance approves a First
Amendment to the Master Ground Lease Agreement (First Amendment) that restricts
ADGs maintenance obligations to the hangar buildings and the apron area within one
(1) foot of the hangar buildings.
Option
The Master Ground Lease included an option for ADG to lease additional property. ADG
has exercised the option and has requested that the City acknowledge ADGs exercise
of its option. The First Amendment contains language acknowledging the exercise of
the option.
IV. LEGAL ISSUES. Implementation of the Councils decision on February 25, 2015
regarding ADGs maintenance obligations requires that the First Amendment be
approved by ordinance.
V. FISCAL IMPACTS. Approving the First Amendment will require the expenditure of
City funds to maintain the project ramp and apron areas.

REQUEST/ISSUE & BACKGROUND INFORMATION:


As we close the City of Steamboat Springs books each year, part of that
process is re-appropriating funds that the City has obligated for the next
budget year. The City must re-appropriate funds for on-going projects,
open purchase orders that a contract is attached to, and grant funded
projects. Budgets do not automatically roll over into the next year;
therefore this is the process that must be taken in order for the City to uphold their contractual obligations.
There is an attached a spreadsheet with the detail for the items that must
be re-budgeted for 2015. The spreadsheet includes each of the following:
1. Items contracted at the time of 12/31/2014. These are purchase orders
that were under contract at the end of 2014. Therefore, the City has a

contractual obligation to these vendors.


2. Incomplete Projects. There are many variables with capital projects that
make it difficult to complete in one budget year. Many of these projects
are grant funded, therefore they must be budgeted for in total when the
grant is awarded and the remaining amount not spent must be rebudgeted for each year until the project is completed.
All of these items were previously budgeted and accounted for in the
projected numbers going forward. For accounting purposes, any unused
funds at the end of 2014 go into reserves and this supplemental budget
appropriation shows utilization of those reserves. In some cases we have
grant revenue that will be recognized in 2015 as well (as noted on the
attached spreadsheet). We only recognize the grant revenue in our
accounting when we earn it since these are all reimbursement grants.
Therefore, the revenue goes hand in hand with the expenses. Although the
ordinance for the appropriation is $11,350,049, it is actually a use of
reserves of a smaller $8,113,024 because we will be recognizing the grant
revenue as well. Again, these are all items that were previously budgeted in
2014 and not spent.

existing structure on the property and create greenspace in 2015 rather than
phasing the projection with a completion date of 2016.

III.

FISCAL IMPACTS:
Proposed Expenditure:

$125,000
Funding Source:
Accommodation Tax Fund Reserves (Advance of 2016 Yampa Street Funds)

IV.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
Three hundred thousand dollars ($300,000) per year for 3 years has been
dedicated to Yampa Street Improvement via an approved 2013 ballot question.
City Council approved budgets including $300,000 in 2014 and $360,000 in 2015
for the purpose of purchasing and improving 603 Yampa Street. City Council
agreed to advance $60,000 from the 2016 allocated funds leaving $240,000 for the
Yampa Street Improvements in 2016.
There is $50,000 budgeted in the Capital Projects Fund in 2015 for the culvert and
drainage work that needs to be done in and around the area of this property. It
would be beneficial from a cost, safety, and efficiency standpoint to
relocate/remove the structure, complete culvert work, complete riverbank
construction, and restore the land to a greenspace by the end of 2015 rather than
doing the project in two phases. This would require an additional advance of
Accommodation Tax Funds $125,000 from the 2016 allocation which would leave
$115,000 for 2016.
The initial phasing of this project will include removing the structures, both house
and garage, from the property, removing the walls along the Yampa River and
Butcherknife Creek, replacing the removed walls with riparian habitat, planting and
irrigating the area with grass, and relocating utilities from the building. Staff will
then work with stakeholders to identify what best fits in the interior of the park
through the winter of 2015/16 and complete the project in the summer of 2016.
Construction on all of these projects has to take place during low flow periods. This
phase 1 would take place from June September of 2015.
Based on the accommodation tax revenue received in 2014 along with the
projected revenue for 2015 there is sufficient reserves within this fund to account
for this advance from a cash flow stand point.
If this supplemental budget appropriation is approved, here is the proposed
timeline for the project:
January:
Temporary wall shoring began in late January.
February:

Create Letter of Interest for moving the structures on the property in


February with a closing date of March 30th.
Draft Design RFP mid February for internal review.
March:
Historic Preservation process in March.
Target design RFP release in early March.
Award design contract and begin design at the end of March.
April/May:
Submit Wetland permit deadline May 1st.
Design Development and initial Construction Cost Estimating complete mid
May.
Asbestos Testing and Structure Demolition May Facilities/Steve
June:
Move house if qualified party submits application. If no qualified applicant,
demolition of structure June 30th
Hydraulic design, Floodplain permitting, Construction Design Docs complete
June
July:
Bid construction
August:

Questions

Issues and Problems


}
}

}
}
}
}

Capital funding challenges continue to mount


Operations funding is challenging and new
amenities are being added (trails, Emerald
Mountain Open Space)
Lack of a dedicated funding source for capital,
operations and maintenance
Locating new facilities in existing city parks is
challenging
User groups are growing and continue to want
more
Lack of a regional perspective relating to parks
and recreation

Opportunities
}
}

}
}

We can be a world-class parks and recreation


system
Looking regionally, passive and active recreation
opportunities beyond the city limits could occur,
some existing park areas could be repurposed
and trails could be expanded beyond city
boundaries
Some alternative funding methods allow for a
dedicated funding structure
The district concept would create an authority
that is dedicated to parks, open space, trails and
recreation provision and focus on these assets

What the Commission has


Learned
}

}
}

The Commission recognizes that parks and


recreation services are important to the
community at large and also realizes that the
current funding structure impedes how services
could grow in the future
Demand for more access to programs and
services continues to increase
In the summer of 2014, the Commission felt the
need to explore different funding structures and
wanted to be educated
The Commission invited park and recreation
district directors to public meetings to learn more
about how a district is formed and how it works

What the Commission Learned


(cont)
}

The Commission invited a special districts


attorney to a public meeting in August of
2014 to learn about Title 32 Special Districts
The Commission reviewed adopted plans and
other planning documents to learn about
funding strategies that could be used to
achieve plan success
On January 25, 2015, the Commission
formulated a strategy to undertake and
desired to meet with City Council to describe
how to move forward

Proposed Next Steps


}

Formulate a working group of seven (7) with


representation from the Parks and Recreation
Commission, the City, the County, and the public and
advised by a consultant versed in governmental
alternative funding strategies
Allow the group to explore different funding and
management structures, some being foundations,
districts, dedicated tax and some as yet to be identified
The work group would study from 6-9 months and give
updates and presentations to the Parks and Recreation
Commission
The group would present its findings to City Council at the
end of Q4 2015 or beginning of Q1 2016

Thank you!

Attachment 2

STAFF FINDINGS
Staff finds that the Development Plan for the proposed Temporary Use as a Dormitory in the
Alpiner Lodge at 424 Lincoln Avenue (Original Town SS, Block 19, Lots 8-10; #DP-15-02), a
Conditional Use in the CO zone district, is INCONSISTENT with the Criteria for Approval for a
Development Plan. While the proposed use is inconsistent with the criteria for approval,
limiting the use to a very specific temporary time period may be acceptable.
If approved, Staff recommends the following conditions be placed on the Temporary Use:
1. The term of this Conditional Use approval for the Temporary Use as a Dormitory shall
expire on April 30, 2016.
2. The use shall comply with all applicable codes and regulations.
3. Required sidewalk repair shall be completed by May 31, 2015.

DRAFT

STAFF PRESENTATION

Rebecca Bessey, City Planner:


[gap-no audio] to be approved in this district for up to 24 months and that temporary
uses are to be approved for a specific, defined time period not to exceed two years. The
applicant is requesting approval of the dormitory through April 30, 2016. We did review
the request based on the criteria for approval of a development plan. We found it to be
generally inconsistent with several of those criteria -- mainly because dormitories are not
a permitted use in the CO district. In addition to that, that type of long-term residential
use is not envisioned by the community plan for the downtown in the CO district on the
pedestrian level in particular.
However, for a limited period of time we did feel that this type of use could be acceptable
if it is approved on a temporary basis with a specific endpoint. We did provide some
revised conditions of approval to you tonight that are different than what was in your
original packet. We would be prepared to recommend approval through April 30, 2016 as
proposed by the applicant subject to the use complying with all applicable building and
fire codes and subject to the sidewalk repairs that are required to be completed by May
31, 2015.

APPLICANT PRESENTATION
Jon Wade:
We did not prepare a formal presentation; were ready to answer any questions. Weve
worked fairly closely with Planning to arrive at this recommendation and are happy with
the recommendations. We wanted to provide affordable housing and saw it as a way to
help the resort economy through our relationship with Resort Group.

QUESTIONS FROM COMMISSIONERS


Commissioner MacArthur:
Jon, staff came out today with revised findings that included the sidewalk repair. Im not
sure if the rest of the commission received the background info on that, but thats been a
repair thats been brought up and put off since 08 or 07. So when you say you agree
with all staffs recommendations, I assume thats included.
Wade: That just came yesterday, so I cant say Ive studied it, but Im not objecting.
Commissioner Buckley:
Staff, when you approved in October of 2014 specifically that the rooms being rented
were not to be for long-term occupancy, were to be limited to less than 20 and were to be
located on the first floor, why did they need to be located on the first floor?
Bessey: It wasnt really that we were concerned about what floor they were on. That was
part of the application. When they submitted the application for the lodge use, I had
asked that they identify which rooms were to be rented because the property has more
than 20 rooms, and a lodge is to be limited to less than 20. So to ensure that they were
complying with that definition and that use, we had asked them to identify which rooms.
In that application, they had said that they were going to be renting the first floor. So
thats where that condition of approval came from to ensure they were operating in
conformance with that application and that approval. But its not that we were opposed to
them being on the first floor rather than the second floor; it was really more a number of
rooms.

DRAFT

Commissioner Levy:
For staff, in the CO district its a conditional use for hotels. We have now three or four
hotels in the CO district. Do you see that as a long-term vision to start excluding them
from the CO district or having them refurbish and put commercial on the first floor?
What do you think the vision for that regulation is?
Tyler Gibbs, Director of Planning:
I cant speak to when that originated. Id have to do some research to determine what the
thought behind that was with either city staff or the city council at the time that put the
prohibition in. But wed be happy to look at that. Im not sure that its part of a long-term
vision at this point, but I cant speak to the original intent.
Commissioner Meyer confirmed that Jon Wade is the owner and Resort Group is the
tenant.
Meyer: For staff, when you looked at the conditions for calling this a dormitory, since the
lease is really to one entity, what triggers the dormitory designation? If they had been
renting to individuals on a short term, would you have had a different category or
classification?

Bessey: Hotels are defined and intended to provide temporary accommodation on a shortterm basis. We arrived at dormitory because it was really more consistent with the way
the use is operating. Regardless if they have individual leases with people for individual
rooms versus the building-wide lease to Resort Group didnt really come into play. It was
really more how the use was operating and how long folks were staying there and that its
not operating in a manner consistent with the definition of a hotel. Its not short-term; its
not temporary accommodation for guests; this is really providing a residence per say for
folks on a longer-term basis. Were not able to classify it as multiple-family dwellings
because the individual rooms dont meet the definition of a dwelling unit. So thats where
they fit best into that dormitory use where they have a common kitchen that they share
and individual sleeping rooms.
Levy: For staff, whats the circumstances if the applicant or another applicant wants to
extend these conditions? Is it a total new process? Is it completely prohibited? Is a
continuation or a new application for temporary use processed?
Bessey: The code allows for temporary uses; it allows for them as a conditional use; and
it defines temporary use as a use that is defined and intended to only exist through a
specified time period not to exceed two years. I dont think that would preclude an
applicant from coming forward and asking for another temporary use of a dormitory for
another two years. I think it would have to go through another public hearing process,
and I think at that point we would have to look really long and hard as to if we stack
multiple temporary use approvals on top of each other, havent we just created really a
permanent use or allowed for the existence of this use that wouldnt otherwise be
permitted in that zone. But I dont think it prohibits someone from asking.

DRAFT

MacArthur: Matt, would you mind reminding us from a Public Works perspective what
you would be looking for regarding the sidewalk repair since that was kind of thrown in
today?
Matt Eggen, Staff Engineer:
The code requires that any property owner adjacent to a sidewalk maintains and repairs
his or her own sidewalk. We do an annual sidewalk inspection that identifies any trip
hazards thats mainly what we look for and then deterioration, problems with the
sidewalk. We sent them a letter in 2007 and 2008. The first letter was just kind of you
need to fix it; the second letter was you have until May 29, 2009 to fix it. They still
havent complied.
MacArthur: Do we know what happened the previous five years?
Eggen: We try to do the whole city probably every three, four, five years, but we dont
inspect the entire city every year.
MacArthur: Not holding you to this, but in your opinion to come into compliance is this a
remove and replace situation, or is grinding down a trip hazard?
Eggen: It could be either. Looking at the entrance, it looks like more of a replace, but if
theres some trip hazards it could just be filling or grinding to come into compliance.

Planning Commission Minutes


February 12, 2015

PUBLIC COMMENT
Mark Walker, President, Resort Group:
I just want to say that it was a large need in order to have housing for this winter for our
employees. If this wouldnt have occurred, Im not sure how the impact would be on our
guests in our units, our employees staying outside of Steamboat Springs, and the overall
impact on the visitor. We were down to the last wire, and there was an opportunity there
of a property sitting in downtown Steamboat Springs empty, and we were able to make
very good use of it partnered with Jon Wade. Its worked out very well for us thus far.
Its housekeeping that is in that building. They keep it clean. I have maintenance teams
down there on a regular basis. I drive by on a regular basis, and its amazing how low
impact it is. You rarely see anybody there. Most of my staff dont have cars. Its quiet; I
touch base with the neighbors. Its very important to us to respect the location that were
in, and weve been on that big time. I think its gone very well from our perspective, so I
hope that youre going to continue to work with the Alpiner owners because its
something we desperately need.
APPLICANT COMMENTS

DRAFT

Wade: Like I said at the start, we had an asset that just wasnt being used. This isnt a
financial positive for us to do it, but we thought it was important to have a use down there
and to help provide a resort economy. I dont know if youve seen, but rentals are tighter
than they were in 2007, so these guys probably didnt have a place to go. Mark didnt
mention it, but their previous units got pulled kind of at the last minute where these
people were going to be. So it wasnt lack of planning on their part; they were adapting to
a change in situation. I think we all wish that we had understood how the codes would be
applied a little better at the start, but I can assure you our intentions were good all along.
Rich, your question about first-level use downtown is a great question. Chris and I were
talking about this earlier, and he made the point that
Chris Paoli, Co-Owner, Alpiner:
We were talking about how the citys overall code for first-level use almost causes an
oversupply of product from a retail standpoint and almost impacts in a negative way the
retail experience and puts extra strain on our retailers because I think it becomes very
fragmented. I think it's a good part of our code that probably at some point needs to be
looked at. I think the Alpiner falls in the category of being outside the main corridor of
where people walk.
Wade: Like anything, I think we have a good code to start with, but things evolve. There
are some uses that were complicated, economic circumstances that were complicated, and
we would appreciate any judgment that you might exercise in recognizing those things in
relation to this use.
STAFF COMMENTS
Gibbs: I just wanted to mention that this is not a situation where we were ever opposed to
this use per say; we just wanted to make sure that everybody was working together to
4

make sure we understood what was occurring and make sure we were addressing any
issues that were brought up regarding the conditions and safety of the people who were
being housed there. Again, we werent opposed to this; we just wanted to make sure that
it was all being documented and everybody understood exactly how we needed to work
together to make this successful.
COMMISSIONER DELIBERATION/MOTION
MacArthur: In the broader context of things here, I dont think theres too many people
in the community that arent sitting back and applauding a free-market solution to what
we all know is a rough rental and housing market here in Steamboat especially for the
lower-wage workforce. I would applaud staff for looking through those lenses at this
project and working with the applicant to get to where they are today. I think that says a
lot about where we can go.
MOTION
Commissioner MacArthur moved to approve #DP-15-02 with revised conditions #1 and
#3.
MacArthur: I am specifically excluding Condition #2: You shall comply with all
applicable codes and regulations I think thats inherent in all approvals we give.
However, as we know, this particular application has a bigger battle ahead at city council.
For the record, it would be my hope that council would work with the applicant to at a
minimum get through the 2015 season and potentially on to the 2016 season. I dont want
our condition of approval to preclude that conversation happening.
Commissioner Burns seconded the motion.

DRAFT

DISCUSSION ON MOTION
Levy: I have to ask staff: #2, besides the conflicts that weve discussed specifically with
the fire code, do you think there are any other codes or regulations that #2 is meant to
address?
Bessey: I was referring to the building and fire code issues that were in the previous
conditions. I think Charlies motion is fine; it is inherent in our approvals that were not
exempting anyone from meeting any other codes. So I dont have any concerns with
removing that.
Meyer: Im going to be supporting the motion. I would rather see a request to approve a
temporary use than have a vacant building on Main Street. I think its very important for
as Charlie stated, we clearly have a huge need. But I would hope that the long-term
vision for this property is much bigger and will be looking forward to having those
discussions.

its own expense the 586 acres of open space the city purchased in 2011. This
committee was set up prior to the purchase to improve the property into a Nordic Ski
Center - and other trail uses. During the recent Emerald Mountain Park Master Plan the
interpretation of the Conservation Easement specifically eliminated nordic ski trails, and
since then, the group hasn't got together. As they receive no funding and are tasked
with maintaining 568 acres, I think we are setting them up for failure. As I recall, this
committee funded nearly half of the master-plan that ended their own existence.
It may make sense to start the process of dismantling this committee. If you all agree to
discuss this at an upcoming council meeting - I can reach out to the group and see
where they are on this, and Staff can work through the agreements and see what it
would take to dismantle.

Area Plan Coordinating Committee (APCC)


We met this week and have over the years been working on updating the IGA between
the city and the county concerning cooperative planning efforts. That IGA was created
in 1990 and updated in 1996. It refers to the 1996 plan, but the plan has been updated
since - 2004 and we made a few amendments last year. An updated IGA made it to a
draft in 2010 but died at the Council/Commissioner level. It seems that at least there
should be some housekeeping to update the IGA, but would we like to discuss more
substantive concepts in the agreement?
Councilman Connell attended this meeting and has ideas/concerns on our cooperative
planning efforts.
Shall we bring this topic to discussion and see where we are as a Council?
It is likely too late for a discussion with the Commissioners on our April 7th meeting - but
we could mention the topic and carry it forward to next quarter's meeting.

Monday, March 9th
Community Survey Planning Team
Four (4) companies submitted proposals to conduct the Steamboat Springs Community
Survey. Two of the companies had the key competencies that as a team we had
identified as being critical to this task. Winnie would be asking these companies followup questions specifically about their benchmarking abilities, survey methodologies and
Spanish language capabilities.
Hopefully by our Council meeting on 17th I will be able to announce what company has
been selected to conduct the community survey.

Steamboat Springs School District RE-2 Board of Education / Work Session
This was a work session and during board member reports Roger Good presented exhibits
demonstrating the impact the Mountain District of the URA has had on SSSD-RE2. There was a
great deal of discussion amongst the school board members about how to best communicate
their concerns to Steamboat Springs City Council. The president of the school board (Roger
Good) indicated that he had had a conversation with Bart Kounovsky about possible dates.

Thursday, March 12th


Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association (March 2015 Board Meeting)
Jim Boyne, Executive Director of the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club did a presentation
on the scope of the activity that SSWSC is involved both summer and winter. Although there is
some overlap between summer and winter there are approximately 750 to 1,000 local area
youth participating in programs. Jim stress that SSWSC is a youth development organization in
addition to competitive training.
An update was provided about the scope of work that is planned on Mt. Werner. Work will
begin this summer with the goal of having it completed by November 2015. The total cost of
the project is about $2.4 million.
Jim shared his vision and goals for CREATING CHAMPIONS CAMPAIGN.
There was a discussion about the scheduling situation between Triple Crown and the Steamboat
Mountain Soccer Tournaments. The message is that both groups are very valuable to
Steamboat Springs lodging, restaurants and retail businesses. Jim Clark indicated that this has

and will continue to be a top priority of his to work toward a solution.

General Topic AGNC


A bill that would require that government entries conducting mail-in ballots elections provide
postage paid return envelope. AGNC and the County Clerks of Colorado have come-out in
opposition to this bill that it would be an added cost to conducting an election. It appears that
while this bill had initial strong support that support has been lost and the bill will be defeated.

Public Comment
Current situation is that City Council provides for Public Comment at 7:00 pm or at the end of
the meeting whichever comes first. The problem is that if City Council is engaged in a discussion
at 7:00 pm, citizens expecting to address City Council have to wait. Is this a best practice?
Two Possible Solutions
1. Modify the wording currently being used regarding Public Comment to indicate that:
PUBLIC COMMENT: Public Comment will be provided at 7 p.m., or as soon after
7:00 pm at the discretion of City Council President if Council is engaged in a
discussion or at the end of the meeting, (whichever comes first).
2. Both the Planning Commission and the Parks and Recreation Commission take public
comment at the beginning of their respective meetings. Planning Commission at 5:00
pm and Parks & Rec. Commission at 5:30 pm. City Council could accept Public Comment
as the first item of business at 5:00 pm. This would follow the same practice of both of
commissions. It removes any ambiguity as to when Public Comment would occur.
In the interest of citizens waiting to address City Council which of the two options would be
the most considerate to them and their time?

Kudos:
Kudos go to the downtown business establishment Kali. They had the best sales in July 2014 that
they have ever had since opening in 1995!
Kudos go to STEAMBOAT DANCE THEATER. What an amazing show!
FOR DISCUSSION:
Free Concert
Despite the fact that the motion did not pass to give money to the Free Concert Series over and
above the allocation recommended by the Arts Coalition, I believe Council Members see the
value in this program. Have we ever considered a "tax free" day/series? Id like an update on
this. I can only assume the Free Concert Series pays the City sales taxes on the alcohol sold at
the event. What if they could simply keep those taxes for an event, or even the series? Has there
been any additional movement on this issue?
Transit
I would like to request that we place a discussion about transit on the agenda for a meeting not
later than May 2015. The intent of this would be to initiate the discussion well in advance of the
budget hearing. From my perspective, the 2014-15 changes to transit got buried in the budget
hearing. I think the public would appreciate more opportunity to weigh in on the issue and transit
staff need more certainty as to how to staff for 2015-16.
Legislation to Watch (summaries from CML)
SB 15-014, Marijuana: Medical Marijuana Regulation
This bill makes several changes intended to limit abuse of the medical marijuana system in
Colorado by addressing shortcomings that open the door to such abuse. It would place greater
structure in the process medical marijuana recommendations for patients by physicians for those
claiming to suffer from severe pain. Most notable is the requirement for all primary caregivers to
register with the state health agency and Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) that includes
penalties for failure to register. It also allows limited information sharing between MED and
CDPHE to ensure that a medical marijuana patient has only one caregiver and is not using a
primary caregiver and a medical marijuana center. This bill came from the Marijuana Revenue
Interim Committee, of which CML staff was a member. Support.
SB 15-079, Affordable Housing: Document Recording Fee.
SB 15-079 creates a document recording fee of $2 at the county level. The county clerk may
keep $1 for costs incurred and requires the clerk to transmit the other $1 collected to the state
treasurer to credit to the statewide affordable housing investment fund. The bill is estimated to
bring in $1 million for the Statewide Affordable Housing Trust Fund annually. CML supports
state financial support for the Division of Housing's loan and grant program for low- and
moderate-income housing. Support.

Affordable Housing: Construction Defects


The lack of owner occupied attached housing development in Colorado has been a subject of
discussion for over a year. Developers, concerned by increased law suits and liability, have shied
away from this type of affordable housing. The members of the Home Owners Opportunity
Alliance are now set to introduce bipartisan legislation to address solutions and aid the
construction of owner occupied attached housing. CML supports this legislation.
On Urban Renewal (my thoughts)

SB15-135 is still moving through the legislature. That is related to County representation
on urban renewal authorities.
I have been tracking the Littleton special election regarding urban renewal. The vote
came down the night of our last meeting (3.3.15) and here is an article that summarizes it.

http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_27639183/littleton-voters-pass-measure-restricting-citysurban-renewal
Here are the first two paragraphs:
Littleton will need to go to the voters before employing commonly used urban renewal
tactics, like tax increment financing or eminent domain, according to special election
results released late Tuesday.
The city in Denver's southern suburbs became the first Colorado community to place
such constraints on a local government's ability to use the state-sanctioned economic
development tools.
HAPPY ST. PATRICKS DAY!!!

CITY MANAGER REPORT


March 17, 2015

FOLLOW UP ITEMS FROM PRIOR MEETINGS


1. Transit on-time expectations

At the February 24 Council meeting, staff were asked to identify a target on-time percentage for our transit
operations and to use comparative transit systems for that target. Specifically, we were asked to check with
RAFTA about their on-time percentage. The following is a response from Transit Manager, Jonathan Flint:
SST tracks the reasons that there are fluctuations to the schedule. The two primary ones are weather/road
and passenger volume. This year in particular, one can mirror the on time performance to the days it
snowed.
What is a good target? The quick answer is 100% of the time, but having studied it, I would argue against
that. In a very controlled operation, such as heavy rail, the dispatcher controls speed and dwell time, and
there are few factors that can impede the progress of the train. They should operate near 100% on time.
We operate in an uncontrolled environment. We must contend with passenger volume, traffic, weather and
construction. To achieve 100% or close, we would have to adopt one of two options. In the Swiss model,
they stage buses and drivers throughout the system that enables them to put a reserve bus into service
when the main is delayed. The result is a system that does not require a Swiss watch, as it is always on
time. However, the system is very expensive. The other alternative is to build dwell time into sections of the
route that enable a late bus to catch up. If so much dwell time is built in to support the highest levels of
volume, traffic and conditions, on a normal day, the trip would take so long that the public would most likely
select a timelier alternative.
I would recommend aiming for 80-90% on time performance. Although we achieve close to this much of the
time, we have encountered very few snow days and a 12% reduction in overall volume. If this was a
normal year, I would anticipate that we would be operating between 50-70% on time. I think this would be
determined to be unacceptable. I would also assert that the 12% reduction is primarily made up of choice
transit users that now use a different mode.
There are so many variables in route development, environment and volume that a comparison with other
systems is not especially helpful. A target should be established that is based on local expectations, then
year over year consistency should be measured. We can do this with the GPS system and look forward to
using it to measure performance and develop scheduling.
While Jonathan does mention that he isnt sold on comparisons for our transit system, he has done some
research in that area and finds that in Greeley/Evans they were running 75% on time, 15% ahead of
schedule and 10% behind schedule. After re-educating drivers about not running ahead of schedule, they
are now running 88% on time, 5% ahead of schedule and 7% behind schedule. They use 8 minutes as the
demarcation line between on time and late.
RAFTA responded as follows: On-time for RAFTA means 3 minutes late or less. Our experience for the
longer-haul commuter service is similar to yours. What we have noticed is that we have times of day when
things run closer to on-time and others when they dont. Weather is always a factor. The MV-Aspen City
route is 84.92% on time, Snowmass to Aspen is 71.61% on time, BRT is 62.49% on time.

Our performance stats (and we use a 4 minute late or less criteria for on-time) for last week were:
o 03/04/2015
73% on time
25% late
o 03/05/2015
81% on time
18% late
o 03/06/2015
68% on time
31% late
o 03/07/2015

o 03/10/2015

21% late

2. Police Committee Facilitators

Council has requested information on subject matter experts who could facilitate the newly formed Police
Station Committee. Jim McClaren is the principal of an architectural firm that specializes in the planning and
design of civic and laboratory architecture. The firms emphasis is design for law enforcement, justice, civic,
bio-safety and the forensic sciences. The firms work includes over 300 police facilities and crime labs in 42
states. We have been working with Mr. McClaren as the advising architect on the Steamboat Springs Police
Station design for the last two years and he has indicated he will make himself available to this committee.
Additionally, we reached out to ICMAs public safety expert, Leonard Matarese. Mr. Matarese has served as
a Police Officer, Deputy Sheriff, Public Safety Officer (fire/police), Director of Public Safety, Chief of Police,
City Manager and the Commissioner of Human Resources. He has worked in ICMAs Center for Public
Safety Management since 2007. He has indicated that he would be pleased to assist the Committee.
Bios for both men follow. Staff recommends offering the service of both experts to the Committee.

ITEMS NEEDING COUNCIL DIRECTION


1. Animal Shelter

The Routt County Humane Society (RCHS) and City Staff are close to completing the transition of operational
responsibility of the City of Steamboat Springs Animal Shelter from the City to RCHS. Several details are still
being worked out in the management agreement, but we are still aiming for an early May transition to RCHS.
This transition will result in the City maintaining responsibility for the building and the mechanical systems
while RCHS will maintain the property and be responsible fo rthe interior/exterior areas associated with their
operations. When RCHS commences operation of the shelter and for as long as they operate it, they wish to
rename it the Routt County Humane Society Animal Shelter. Does this meet with Councils approval?

GOALS UPDATES
1. Sustainability

The Cen$ible Energy program that Council funded is in place and being operated by the Sustainability
Council. We have also paid our dues into the STAR City program and are working out a plan of action.

2. Council Communications

In alliance with the Citys mission and Councils goals and policies, we have added a section to the amended
Council Communication form to tie, whenever possible, the agenda item to a mission, goal or policy.

in the catch basins. Instead of cleaning debris from the catch basins, this filter will catch all the debris as

will be removed and disposed. If successful, we will look at expanding the use of these filters across the
City.
