Background: In September of 2006, following up on its presentation of the Mobility Plan Resources Report in August of 2006, MLTPA proposed the formation of Mammoth Trails as a "...confederation of user groups and clubs organized and maintained to promote the pursuit of each group's recreation mission and, importantly, to extend the necessary stewardship to the physical resources upon which these activities take place."
An ad hoc committee of the Mammoth Lakes Tourism and Recreation Commission was subsequently formed and, working together with MLTPA, produced a report for consideration and discussion at MLTPA's Strategic Conference and Public Meeting that November.
During the CAMP: SUMMER and CAMP: WINTER public meetings the following year the drafting of the Mammoth Trails Charter got started. It was completed and adopted by six Mammoth-based outdoor recreation organizations in the summer of 2008.
Consistent with MLTPA's original vision, but elaborated upon and fleshed out by the participation of user groups and Town of Mammoth Lakes staff, the Mammoth Trails Charter establishes a confederation of user groups that seeks to "...effectively and inclusively create and enhance recreation for our community."
In the summer of 2008, six Mammoth-based outdoor recreation organizations signed on to the Mammoth Trails Charter, creating a confederation of user groups that seeks to accomplish the following:
Mammoth Trails enhances and protect the outdoor recreation amenities we all enjoy in the Mammoth Lakes region by fostering strong relationships between user groups to increase awareness and understanding of multiple uses as well as strengthen our community's voice for trails and public access.
If your club or organization is interested in signing the Mammoth Trails Charter, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
JULY 2012 UPDATE: Mammoth Trails held its last regular monthly meeting as part of MLTPA's Measure R contract on July 19, 2012. Meetings will continue on an ad-hoc basis. Email email@example.com for more information.
