Project Description: With the success of the MLTPA Trails Planning Proposal and the securing of $225,000 in funding commitments, it was time for the Trails CAMP (Concept and Master Planning) process to get underway. This meant a competitive bidding process for consultants, the awarding of contracts, and the engagement of Jurisdictional, Funding, and Planning partners for the CAMP effort. Since October 2007, when Town Council voted to award the consultant contracts to Alta Planning + Design and Trail Solutions, MLTPA executed two highly visible and successful public-outreach efforts: CAMP: SUMMER and CAMP: WINTER. The ultimate deliverable of the CAMP process, the final draft of the Town of Mammoth Lakes Trail System Master Plan 2009, is due to the Town in February 2009. Once the document has been delivered and the final bills have been paid, the CAMP process as initiated by MLTPA will be complete. Next, the Town will arrange for the necessary CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) analysis of the plan; once that's been completed, Town Council will be able to officially adopt the updated Trail System Master Plan on behalf of the community.
DELIVERABLES: Read the CAMP FAQ, as well as the agenda bill that Town Council voted on to approve the CAMP consultant contracts.
