Mountain Village and TMVOA partnering on winter plaza dining enhancements
As communities across the country have pivoted countless times this year to respond locally to the widespread effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Town of Mountain Village and Telluride Mountain Village Owners Association (TMVOA) are partnering to offer a unique solution to help support restaurants this winter.
At each of their monthly regular meetings last week, both the Mountain Village Town Council and TMVOA board of directors approved to split funding to install private dining cabins made from refurbished gondola cars and yurts on Mountain Village’s plazas to offer guests and residents space to socially distance while still patronizing Mountain Village’s restaurants and bars. The Town is also currently pursuing various grant opportunities from the state to contribute toward this effort.
The winter enhancement plans will also assist Mountain Village restaurants with the rental of temporary weatherproof structures to be placed within current dining patios adjacent to restaurants and offer matching grant funds for outdoor heating elements to further support outside dining.
