An article Thursday about redevelopment plans for Sunlight Mountain Resort quoted someone mis-stating a fact. The person was incorrect when he told the Garfield County Planning Commission that the Copper Mountain ski area has 750 residential units at its base ” less than the 830 units that plans call for at Sunlight’s base. His statement that the much smaller Sunlight would have a base village the size of Copper’s was incorrect because Copper actually has 1,561 residential units at its base, according to a June 2008 planned unit development amendment; therefore, Sunlight’s planned base village would be roughly half the size Copper Mountain’s now. Copper’s PUD calls for 2,151 residential units at full build-out.
