North America's Premier International Resort Community
The Planning Team is responsible for the town's physical and socioeconomic planning, including development of plans and policies, land use, zoning and environmental review.
During the development review process, the team ensures proposed development directs the future of the community toward appropriate physical and economic growth compatible with our natural environment. A strong community engagement component is included in all planning efforts to ensure that the community is informed and involved in all decision-making processes.
The Town of Vail is working with Victor Mark Donaldson Architects to develop a Master Plan for the future use and development of the Public Works Department site located at 1309 Elkhorn Dr. The purpose of the Public Works Master Plan is to provide a summary of the immediate needs and the long term use of the Public Works site. The Master Plan will provide a roadmap to guide future development of the site, while helping the Town to understand the possible costs and impacts of future development, and allowing for flexibility in implementation of the Plan.
The future needs and opportunities at the Public Works site were determined based upon interviews with key stakeholders and consultants for the Public Works facility, including Public Works employees (Administration, Fleet, Streets, Facilities, Transit, Electrical, and Carpentry), residents of Buzzard Park employee housing, technical consultants (Traffic Engineers, Structural Engineers, Electrical System Engineers, and Mechanical System Engineers), Town Manager, Housing Director, IT Director, Chief of Police, Fire Chief, and the Vail Recreation District staff.
Based on interviews with key stakeholders, Victor Mark Donaldson Architects developed a series of space needs and other functional needs for the Public Works facility, which were considered for the future of this site. The architects also documented existing conditions at the site, including Buzzard Park employee housing, Administration Building, Bus Garage, Fleet Maintenance, Greenhouse, Outdoor Storage areas, Snow Dump, and surrounding lands, including the hillside to the north of the existing buildings. The architects weighed the needs of the Town and the Public Works Department with opportunities and constraints of the site, including available land, topography, functionality, site access, solar orientation, zoning, Geologically Sensitive Areas (Rockfall and Debris Flow), utilities, and wildlife habitat.
On April 22, 2019, the Vail Planning and Environmental Commission recommended that the Vail Town Council adopt the Public Works Master Plan. Review by the Vail Town Council has been scheduled for May 7, 2019.
