VI. Update on Kitzbuhel Lodge- Requested by Kirk Stapp
Kirk presented his dissatisfaction with the process of handling the Kitzbuhel. The Settlement Agreement and Mutual General Release entered into between the Town of Mammoth Lakes and Intrawest details that the Kitzbuhel can remain vacant for ten more years. Furthermore Kirk is concerned that the Agreement does not state what is to happen to the affordable housing complex in ten years. As part of the agreement Intrawest is required to record a deed restriction within fifteen days of the executed agreement (February 17, 2010). As of this meeting that restriction has not been recorded. In the future Kirk requests that the Town bring matters relating to affordable housing before Mammoth Lakes Housing for review before action is taken.

VII. Inclusionary Housing Ordinance and In-Lieu Fee Update
The Board discussed and reviewed the two different memos provided by Walter Kieser with EPS on his analysis of the Town’s in-lieu fee. There was conflicting information in the two reports as well as concern with the manner in which the second memo was disseminated. The Board directed Pam and Bill to attend the CFFC meeting the next day to follow-up with Walter on the matter.

VIII. Community Benefits/Incentive Zoning Letter Update
Concern was brought up regarding Kirk’s role with the Old Mammoth Place (OMP) appeal and the letter to Council on the CBIZ policy. Kirk will talk with Peter Tracy and the MLH council will be consulted on any conflicts with this action. The Board agreed to wait on the letter to Council until after the OMP appeal was hear so as not to confuse the two. This item is to be continued for the May meeting.
