Mammoth Lakes Trail System Governance

062_MLTS_Governance_lt_233h_180_233

Project description: On March 18, 2015, the Mammoth Lakes Town Council voted 4-0 (with Council Member and MLTPA Board President John Wentworth recused) on agenda item #13, to “Approve the Mammoth Lakes Recreation (MLR) Key Agreements for implementation of the Mammoth Lakes Trail System (MLTS) Coordination." These four key agreements include: a Statement of Shared Values; MLTS Central Point Oversight and Policy Structure; MLTS Scope of Tasks; and Trails Coordination Funding and Scope of Contract.  The complete document is available for download below, along with a graphic presentation that describes the process for governance and oversight.  

As stated in the staff report for the Town Council’s agenda item, The Mammoth Lakes Trails System is a project deliverable for Mammoth Lakes Recreation (MLR), which directs MLR to “Collaborate with the Town and partners on providing recommendations to Town Council for the continuation, prioritization, implementation, and design of programs and services to support the Mammoth Lakes Trail System…" The staff report continues: "While MLR, through its Mammoth Trails Committee, will provide work program oversight and recommendations, the specific project details will be identified and implemented at a staff level, with appropriate contracts coming to Council when required. The proposed structure is designed to allow a smaller group with clear responsibilities (i.e. the Mammoth Trails Committee) to focus on development of policy direction, to allow a focus on implementation of larger capital projects and trails programs, establish a focus on leveraging funding and to complete their strategic direction work and recommendations.”
