Town of Mammoth Lake Engages Their Community to “Plan the Parcel”

The Town of Mammoth Lakes is a unique resort getaway town tucked away in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and is the only incorporated community in rural Mono County. It is home to many visitors throughout the year seeking a snowy adventure in the winter or hiking, mountain biking and fly-fishing in the summer. Residents of Mammoth Lakes welcome the visitors and part-time residents, but the constant flow of vacationers causes a unique challenge for the town. Because of the influx of visitors, the town suffers from a larger impact on emissions than the year-round population. Also plaguing the town, along with most California communities, is the need for housing, especially affordable housing. As with other resort areas, the price of existing housing stock and the presence of numerous second-home owners, leaves little housing available to lower-income full time residents and part-time residents have seasonal or temporary jobs alike.  Click here to read more from the Institute for Local Government.


FINAL Concept Plan for The ParcelFinal Concept Plan (2D)

What is The Parcel?

The Parcel (formerly known as the Shady Rest Tract) is a 25-acre undeveloped site located in Mammoth Lakes at the west end of Tavern Road, between Manzanita Road, Center Street, and Laurel Mountain Road. The Parcel has long been zoned to fulfill a significant portion of the existing affordable housing need in Mammoth Lakes, as well as to provide other community benefits described on page 25 of the 2007 General Plan. In accordance with the recommendations of the 2017 Community Housing Action Plan, the Town of Mammoth Lakes purchased the Parcel in 2018 and has initiated a Conceptual Land Use Planning process for the site known as “Plan The Parcel”. One of the primary goals of the Plan The Parcel process, which is anticipated to last through the end of 2019, is to gather feedback from the community to incorporate into the future design and development of the site. By providing your feedback at Upcoming Events or through various opportunities on our Engage Mammoth Lakes online feedback website, you can help ensure that development of the Parcel will not only provide much needed affordable housing but will also create a unique and vibrant place that Mammoth Lakes residents and visitors can enjoy. 

This page and its sub-pages include a summary of ongoing "Plan The Parcel" Conceptual Land Use Planning efforts for The Parcel.
