You can’t court a boondoogle without expensive advice
Now comes the expensive part.
Too bad it only took $6.5 million to reach the starting line.
Mammoth Lakes Town Council began the process of “pre-development” at its regular meeting Wednesday for an envisioned affordable housing project at the 25- acre Shady Rest Parcel (since renamed “The Parcel”).
The Parcel is located behind Center Street and just a block off Main Street.
But before even the first hint of a discussion could be had regarding what the future neighborhood might look like, the renaming of the renaming had already begun in earnest.
Mayor Cleland Hoff suggested the name “Sage Manor.” She did not mention whether or not the project would include a Batshit Cave.
Local resident Sharon Clark suggested “Bare Haven,” although this seems to make little sense as Mammoth does not enjoy a climate conducive to supporting a nudist colony.
*Just called Ms. Clark for clarification. Scratch the above. Bear Haven is her idea. Hmm. This could turn into a competition to see who is best at not locking their dumpsters – Bear Haven or Lupin Street.
