Board Notes: Synopsis from 11/19 Board Meeting

Public Comment

•    Public comment topics included the skier shuttle, reserve study, financial forecasting and short-term rentals.

•    The CPOA was pleased to have the chance to present arguments before the Court of Appeals on November 6, 2018. A decision is anticipated in the near future. 

Management Team Report

•    Per statutory requirement, a budget letter will be sent to the community December 1 with the annual report published in late December. 

•    Barry Smith will assume the position of Cordillera Public Safety Director November 19. He offers the district an extensive background in emergency response and emergency management planning. Barry spent 19 years with the Eagle River Fire Protection District before retiring from the fire service with the rank of Battalion Chief. Concurrent with his fire service work, he also was a part-time patrol officer with Beaver Creek Public Safety. Since 2002 Barry was the emergency management director with Eagle County Government. He is a fire service, NWCG and Federal Emergency Management Agency ICS instructor, NWCG Strike Team Leader/Type IV incident commander, the past chair and current vice chair of the Colorado NW All Hazards Emergency Management Region, and he is a graduate of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Emergency Manager Advance Academy which provided him the strategic level training, education and skills needed to manage dynamic and resilient emergency management programs. Originally from Glenwood Springs, Barry now lives in Eagle.

•    Stephanie Palmer with S3Partnership was retained for emergency planning and preparedness. She and Barry Smith will work to hold discovery meetings; conduct a Hazard Vulnerability Assessment; plan a Table Top Exercise; develop an Emergency Operations Plan; facilitate trainings; host a full-scale exercise and evaluate areas for improvement.

•    Coffee Talks, which started in March, were a way for community members to discuss current community issues with board members. Attendance was minimal, so the board decided to suspend the talks. 

•    Legal counsel provided an update that the District Court ruled in favor of CMD on all claims in the matter of Starview Realty Investments v. Cordillera Metropolitan District on November 5, 2018.

 Board Meeting Schedules

•    The December 21, 2018 meeting was canceled as there are no substantive topics for board discussion. 

•    The 2019 board meetings will be on the second Friday of every other month; the meeting dates are: January 11, March 8, May 10, July 12, September 13 and November 8.

Skier Shuttle Service-Pilot Program

•    Upon further review, CMD is not authorized to provide transportation. CMD could hold an election to receive proper authority. The Boards will reassess the program after the strategic planning process is complete and a long-term financial plan is developed. 

 2018 Quarterly Financials and Budget Amendment

•    The Boards approved the 2018 Budget Amendments. 

 Short-Term Rentals

•    Staff requested input from Resonance, the firm conducting the strategic planning process, the following points were shared:

•    Short-term rentals are typically less than 30 days, not the 15 days previously discussed. 

•    Rental ban enforcement is difficult, but controlling access to amenities tends to limit rentals. 

•    Short-term rental bans limit real estate sales and property values because they reduce the universe of potential buyers for properties as the general trend is that the next generation of buyers is increasingly looking to rent their properties to offset carrying costs. 

•    However, being a private community without short-term rentals has quality of life benefits for property owners. 

•    Future discussions will occur through planning as to whether Cordillera is a “private” or “resort” community.

•    There is currently one property that was noticed for violating the CCRs that prohibit operating a commercial business. 

•    The Board favored enforcing existing regulations and developing rules that restrict the usage of amenities by renters.
