Encuesta Inicial sobre ¡Planifiquemos The Parcel!

The Parcel (formerly known as the Shady Rest Parcel) is an undeveloped site located in Mammoth Lakes at the west end of Tavern Road, between Manzanita Road, Center Street, and Laurel Mountain Road. The site is about 25 acres in size, with a wetland area of roughly 4 acres. 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 in the 2007 General Plan(External link). In accordance with the recommendations of the 2017 Community Housing Action Plan(External link), 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, either through the initial survey below or by participating in the Upcoming Events(External link), you can help ensure that development of the Parcel will not only help to provide much needed affordable housing but will also create a unique and vibrant place that Mammoth Lakes residents and visitors can enjoy. 

This page includes a summary of ongoing "Plan The Parcel" Conceptual Land Use Planning efforts for The Parcel.
