Housing summit in Mammoth
The Town of Mammoth Lakes spent $6,500,000 on The Parcel. Now it has an obligation to the public not to MUF it up.
This weekend’s Community Housing Summit aims to prevent such a MUF. The three-day summit at Eagle Lodge has two goals, according to event co-founder and Town Councilman John Wentworth:
1. To establish a baseline for housing literacy in the community
2. To reach outside of ourselves for insight from towns that have faced similar challenges.
The former aims to create a common language so all members of the community can remain engaged. What do people mean when they say density, AMI levels, community values, and deed restrictions? What is the role of the developer, or the builder?
“These are basic terms that we want in the community so that we are all working off of good information,” said Wentworth.
