Measure R at Work!

Measure R is a financing vehicle for the creation of additional and/or the improvement of existing recreation opportunities for residents and visitors of Mammoth Lakes. It provides the means to prioritize parks, trails and recreation needs and to allocate funds accordingly with the goal to improve the visitor experience, enhance the quality of life for local residents, and to achieve a sustainable year-round economy.

The Measure R or “Mammoth Lakes Recreation, Trails and Parks Investment Initiative” Ordinance No. 08-01 was adopted by the Mammoth Lakes Town Council on February 20, 2008, and approved by the voters of Mammoth Lakes on June 3, 2008. The Ordinance imposed a Transactions and Use Tax in the amount of one-half percent for the purpose of funding Recreation, Trails and Parks. 

Measure R is a special fund designated for use by the Town of Mammoth Lakes only for the planning, construction, operation, maintenance, programming and administration of all trails, parks and recreation facilities managed by the Town of Mammoth Lakes without supplanting existing parks and recreation facility maintenance funds.  Please reference TOML ordinance No. 08-01.  

Priorities for the effective use of Measure R funds are established annually by the Recreation Commission.


2013 Measure R Fall Award
On October 16, 2013, Town Council approved the 2013 Measure R fall award and directed the Town Manager to conduct the award cycle.  The fall award will open on October 21, 2013 and close on November 15, 2013.  

Approval of the funding recommendations by Town Council is scheduled for January 15, 2014.


Funding Cycles

Applicants are able to apply for Measure R funds in the fall or spring.  Fall is the major funding cycle and all applications are considered that meet the funding goals identified above, including the Recreation Commission’s “Priorities” established for the stated year, and in TOML Ordinance No. 08-01.  

The Spring funding award is intended to address: (1) an immediate or “emergency” project/service opportunity, or (2) provide gap funding for project or services that were awarded in the fall cycle but are experiencing a financial shortfall. Preference has been given to previously awarded projects and once in a lifetime or time-limited opportunities.
