|Mountain Village Design Review Board OKs hotel application (Four Seasons Hotel)Town Council to discuss project Thursday|
|“In the number of years I’ve been on this board we have never been so thorough in architectural and design plan, and had prospective builders see to our requests, not only with height, but design, and I commend Dev (Motwani, president and CEO of Merrimac Ventures and applicant) and his team for being so accommodating,” board member Liz Caton said. “I don’t feel that we’ve had to argue much over what you guys are doing or what we want. And I think it’s important to note that the mass and scale conversation is (Thursday) with the Town Council. Our purview, as design review board, is to look at the architectural plans and the landscaping, and discuss the lighting and the roof and the materials and all the things that they’ve presented. And I think they’ve done a fabulous job. And I’m in favor and look forward to seeing a hotel built.”|
