Sustainable Recreation and Tourism Initiative

Welcome to "Recreation Stakeholders"

Project Description: “Regional Recreation Stakeholder Engagement” is the official name for Track 1 of the “Sustainable Recreation and Tourism Initiative”.  Efforts will include virtually facilitated meetings in Inyo, Mono, and Alpine counties starting in September of 2019. Stakeholder consensus, identified challenges, and emerging trends will be documented and shared on this web page.  Through these efforts, public support can be identified for programs and on the ground infrastructure investments. MLTPA is pleased to provide this web page in support of the Eastern Sierra Sustainable Recreation Partnership (ESSRP) and the "Sustainable Recreation and Tourism Initiative."

COVID-19 Update: In person meetings are no longer safe as the pandemic has profoundly effected the gateway communities and counties of the Eastern Sierra, as well as recreation activities and our visitor audience. Project ideas for the "Recreation Stakeholders" track are being collected through the "Community Projects" webpage, and will be ranked at two virtual meetings in the Fall of 2020. Please visit the "Community Projects" webpage to review the current list of project ideas, to submit your own project ideas, and for complete and timely information on what comes next. Many thanks to the Eastern Sierra's unprecedented open-access broadband network capacity via Digital 395.
