On January 16, 2020, Vail Mayor Dave Chapin announced that the Town of Vail had approached representatives from Vail Resorts and Triumph Development with the objective of exploring an alternate approach to the Booth Heights development approved for East Vail. In doing so, it was acknowledged that the desire of the Town was to pursue a win-win outcome that achieved an equitable balance between the adopted housing and environmental stewardship goals. Since that time, the primary focus of the Town’s efforts has been on town-owned properties where additional housing could be developed in the near term while ensuring adequate time and opportunity to implement habitat enhancements on town-owned and USFS-owned lands over the long term.
More recently, representatives from Vail Resorts informed the
Vail Town Council of the need to take a pause in the discussions and
negotiations. In spite of pause, the Vail Town Council remains committed
to the Alternate Housing Sites Initiative. The Town Council will continue
moving forward with Triumph Development on the future development of Lot 3,
Middle Creek with the goal of maintaining opportunities for Vail Resorts to
re-engage in the Alternate Housing Sites Initiative when the time is right.
On January 5, 2021, town staff will share updates with the Town
Council on the ongoing efforts to temporarily relocate the Children’s Garden of
Learning to the RV parking area on the east end of the Lionshead parking
structure as well as share the conclusions of the Lot 3, Middle Creek due
diligence report. It is anticipated construction on the new CGL site could
begin as early as mid-April to allow for the development of 100%
deed-restricted homes on Lot 3, Middle Creek to begin in mid-September with a
completion date of November 2022.
