The Vail Parking & Transportation Task Force has been reinstated by the Vail Town Council following appointment of new members by Mayor Dave Chapin. The role of the 12-member group is to provide advisory input and recommendations on parking, transit and traffic operations. Following an application and interview process, the following community members have been selected to serve:
- Representing the retail community will be Meg Hanlon and Hugh Paine
- Representing the restaurant community will be Bill Suarez
- Representing the lodging community will be Brian Butts
- Representing the community-at-large will be Kent Johnson, Andrew Lanes and Don Marks
The seven members will be joined by Darryl Flores from Vail Valley Medical Center; Doug Lovell and Jeff Babb from Vail Resorts; along with Council Member Jen Mason and Mayor Chapin. The task force will be supported by various departments and agencies to assist with technical expertise.
The Parking & Transportation Task Force was formed in 1999 in an advisory capacity and has been enacted through the years at the direction of the Vail Town Council. In reinstating the group, recommendations and input will be solicited on both winter and summer operations. A minimum of three meetings will be convened in 2017. The first meeting will take place from 10 a.m. to noon on Monday, Jan. 23 in the Vail Town Council Chambers. All meetings will be open to the public.
