MV Town Hall Subarea Planning
To promote well-planned and high-quality development scenarios for the Town Hall Subarea, TMVOA, the Town of Mountain Village, and Telluride Ski and Golf have been partnering to evaluate the most appropriate uses for this area of our town.

Design Review Board Has Work Session to Discuss Evolving Architecture
At a Special Meeting held Oct. 18, the Mountain Village DRB discussed the fact that architecture is evolving and how Mountain Village’s regulations should reflect this evolution. Discussion focused primarily on:
· Thick and Heavy Base – Current code requires a base of stone or timbers for a heavy/grounded appearance. Discussion of potentially easing this requirement. Maintaining current 35% stone coverage requirement, but allow for some flexibility for lighter, more airy design.
· Roof Design – Removing gables as the primary design feature and changing language to allow a variety of sloped elements
· Roof Material – Allowing synthetic replacement options for older wood shake shingles
· Glazing – Maintaining current code of 40% maximum of window area, but possibly relaxing the requirements for the size of a single pane

This was a work session only and no action was taken. The DRB is scheduled to continue this discussion at a Special Meeting on Nov. 7 at 10 a.m.
