A series of public meetings is coming down the pipeline to help plan and manage the future of the Mammoth Lakes Basin Area. With the help of a grant from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy the Town of Mammoth Lakes, the Inyo National Forest, the Mammoth Lakes Trails and Public Access Foundation, and Friends of the Inyo have been gathering data on mobility and outdoor-recreation patterns in the Lakes Basin. Now these organizations are ready to hear from the public.
The first meeting will be held this Thursday, Sept. 30 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at The Westin. Additional meetings will be held on Thursday, Oct. 14 and Thursday, Oct. 28, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at The Westin.
If you plan to become involved it is strongly encouraged that you attend all three meetings. If you cannot make one or more meetings in person, please plan to participate online via webinar.
According to a press release from MLTPA, “As one of Mammoth’s most popular amenities, the area sees thousands of visitors every summer who come to experience a wide diversity of recreation experiences. The Mammoth Lakes Basin is also a critical watershed providing water resources to Mammoth Lakes and other downstream communities. Proper
planning and management will ensure that the Lakes Basin can continue to provide exceptional recreational experiences while protecting and sustaining the natural resources of the area.”
The public can also participate in LABSS through the blog, www.labss.wordpress.com or by becoming a fan of the LABSS page on Facebook. –MLTPA/LAK
