Mountainside
The Mountainside project is a 16 unit townhome development located at 413 Rainbow Lane, east of Canyon Lodge. Two of the units are freestanding units and 14 units would be within 7 duplex buildings. All units are 3 stories with 3 bedrooms and a 2-car garage. The original project, approved by Town Council in June 2015, consisted of a tentative tract map, variance, use permit, design review, and adjustment. The final map for the original project was recorded in October 2016.

In April 2017, an amendment to the approved project was submitted. The purpose of the amendment is to improve snow storage capacity and management on site by increasing the distance between the buildings, which requires a setback reduction of two feet along the property line adjacent to Lakeview Boulevard.

Amendment - Planning and Economic Development Commission 7/12/17

The amendment to the approved project will require a new Tentative Tract Map (TTM 17-001), an Amended Design Review (DR 15-001A), and an Adjustment (ADJ 17-006). The Amended Design Review is required because the modified site plan removes some of the pop-outs, changing the architectural features of the buildings. The Adjustment is required to reduce the side yard setback adjacent to Lakeview Boulevard to eight feet (two foot reduction).
