Old Mammoth Place Amendment

An application to amend the Old Mammoth Place (OMP) project (Sierra Nevada Resort & Spa redevelopment project) was submitted in October 2015. The project is located at 164, 202, and 248 Old Mammoth Road within the Clearwater Specific Plan area. The OMP project is a condo-hotel, mixed-use project with up to 488 hotel rooms, restaurant and retail space, conference space, and underground parking. The application consists of a district zoning amendment, tentative tract map, use permit amendment, and design review.

The primary changes to the approved project, which require an amendment of the Clearwater Specific Plan include: (1) an increase in overall building height of 10-feet (heights will range from 35 to 65 feet as measured from the parking podium); and (2) elimination of the on-site affordable housing requirements and instead, allow the developer to mitigate housing by applying the Town's current Housing Ordinance, which allows payment of Housing Impact Mitigation Fees. The maximum number of hotel rooms remains at 488 hotel rooms.
