Stands taken in River Run review

City Council split over requests linked to base village

Ketchum City Council members began taking their stands Wednesday concerning must-haves for allowing Sun Valley Resort's proposed 138-acre base village at River Run.

So far, the council is split on two issues: requiring a three-acre active park on site and allowing 10 to 15 cabins in the forest along the Big Wood River on the southern end of the property.

The council still must delve into its opinions on community and workforce housing, among other things. Those issues were scheduled to be tackled at last night's follow-up meeting, with a possible vote on the annexation request.

A story covering Wednesday's and Thursday's meetings will appear in the Wednesday, April 28, issue and an online news update will be posted to www.mtexpress.com today briefly describing the outcome of Thursday's meeting.

Some issues were settled Wednesday, with the council agreeing with Sun Valley Resort on its request for using half the Urban Renewal Agency money generated from the development for construction of a parking structure and infrastructure in the base village.
