Planning Commission supportive of plan
By Aimee Eaton
The Adaptive Sports Center’s new Kelsey Wright building has cleared the first hurdle of the Mt. Crested Butte Planning Commission process.
At the November 22 Planning Commission meeting, the seven-member board made a motion to recommend the Mt. Crested Butte Town Council approve the ASC’s preliminary plans with a few conditions. Those conditions included allowing a five year vesting for the project, having the applicant provide a landscaping plan and more details on Emmons Road circulation, and the snowmelt plan among other items.
One other point raised during the meeting had to do with parking for the new building. The proposal includes two covered parking/loading spaces on site that the ASC plans to use for their vans. The ASC also has an agreement with the Crested Butte Mountain Resort for the use of up to 10 spaces in the resort’s main lot, having spaces directly in the base area is rare.
The next step in the planning process for the new building will be a public hearing before the Town Council and then discussion and possible approval from the Town Council. The public hearing for the Adaptive Sports Center preliminary plan before the town council is scheduled for December 19.
