Sherwin Area Recreation Master Plan (SHARP)

The SHARP was published in November 2009, and reflects the results of a seven-month collaborative process involving Mammoth Lakes Trails and Public Access (MLTPA), the US Forest Service, the Town, and a broad cross-section of interested stakeholders, known as the Sherwin Working Group (SWG).  SHARP identifies potential summer and winter trails and recreation projects in the Sherwin Area, south of the Town's Urban Growth Boundary.  Since publication of SHARP, the SHARP Trails Technical Committee has been working to refine the recommendations of the SHARP document.

Draft Trails System Master Plan EIR
Work on the Environmental Impact Report for the TSMP EIR began in July 2010.  The EIR will consider the environmental effects of implementing the Master Plan, including the Soft Surface Trails Concept, and the Sherwin Area Recreation Plan (SHARP), which is the result of more focused planning that evolved from the Sherwin Area Trails Special Study.   The Town received a generous grant from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy to complete the EIR, and is working with PCR Services Corporation as the CEQA consultant.  Public documents related to the EIR will be posted below as they are available.
