Project Description: Snowcreek VIII will be the largest single real estate development project in Mammoth Lakes to date and will play a significant role in defining the interface between the Town of Mammoth Lakes and U.S. Forest Service lands along the Town’s southern boundary. "The Master Plan Update allows for development of 790 residential Dwelling Units, a Resort Hotel including 250 Resort Hotel Rooms/Suites...150 Private Residence Club units and up to 75,000 square feet of non-residential uses on a total of approximately 237 acres." – Snowcreek Master Plan Update, 2007

MLTPA Comments for Town Council

MLTPA prepared a complete package of specific and actionable comments for Town Council as it considered the Snowcreek VIII Master Plan. Town Council voted unanimously to include all of MLTPA’s final comments in the final Conditions of Approval (COA) for the Snowcreek VIII Master Plan. This includes immediate, permanent protection for public egress from the Sherwins Range and long-term connections to area trails. Take the time to cross-reference MLTPA’s comments with the COA by using the reference numbers cited in MLTPA’s comments and matching them to the item numbers in the COA. (The numbered conditions begin with Section 7 on page 17 of the COA document.)
