A tremendous amount of progress has already been made to repair
and open the roads to Killington. For up to date information on
Vermont's roads please look up the website www.511vt.com which is
the State of Vermont's official road conditions site.
We fully expect that the upcoming Killington Brewfest will take
place as scheduled. This traditional brewfest is a celebration of
this area's finest locally brewed beers and features sampling of
beers, a tasting dinners, live music and a whole weekend of great
fun and festivities. On Friday, September 30 there is a Vermont
Brewmaster's dinner at the Summit Lodge, and a terrific kickoff
party. Don't miss it!
At the August 10 meeting of the Town of Killington Planning
Commission among the correspondence was the Act 250 Permit to
construct the new Killington Peak Lodge.
In the Planner's Report, Dick Horner advised that Mike Moriarty,
Mountain Green Resort's General Manager, sent an email withdrawing
their PUD permit application without prejudice.
Regarding the Killington Resort/Highridge/Ridgetop appeal, there
was to be a conference call with the attorneys on August 15. Town
Attorney, Kevin Brown, was to participate in that conference call.
A mediation date was being set for September 2. Dick Horner will
attend the mediation and in the event an issue arises he will
contact the Town Attorney via phone. Art Malatzky expressed concern
that according to the July 13 Planning Commission minutes that
stated that the Town was merely going to monitor the appeal. He
noted that all three questions raised in the appeal apply directly
to the Town. Dick Horner advised Mr. Malatzky that the Town will be
doing more than just monitoring. The conference call will give the
Town Attorney a good idea of the direction that the mediation is
going in and then Dick plans to attend the mediation. Dick also
noted that the Town is only listed as a party in the appeal and not
as an appellant.
Next on the agenda, the owner of the Highline Lodge has torn down
the old dormitory. The owners have submitted an application to
build a bath house and swimming pool to service the RV and camping
sites on the property. They asked that Dick Horner approve this
administratively. Commissioner Lee moved to authorize Dick Horner
to approve this application administratively. Commissioner
Linnemayr seconded the motion and a discussion followed. The
Commission imposed two conditions: 1. keep existing vegetation and
2. the pool must be fenced in. The vote on the motion as
conditioned was unanimously approved.
The Zoning Revisions Committee has reached a point where it has
addressed all the substantial changes which it was assigned to do.
The Committee was to meet one more time on August 31 to put
together all the loose ends. The Town has hired someone who is
competent in computers and legal documents to come in and make all
the technical and formatting changes. Dick Horner is confident that
there will be a good document to pass on to the Planning Commission
by September 7 for discussion and then warn a Public Hearing prior
to passing it on to the Board of Selectmen.
