Start with a vision and then develop a plan. Thatâ€™s how Mammoth demonstrates its devotion to recreation. Town Council considered an implementation plan Wednesday for the previously approved vision.
The townâ€™s devotion is unique in its two-pronged approach to recreation as both a quality of life concern and an economic concern, according to Carl Ribaudo, founder of the Strategic Marketing Group.
The group provided consulting services for the visioning and planning projects. He said throughout his 20-year career, he has never seen another town commit to both aspects of recreation.
The Mono Lake Tufa State Natural Reserve may become unbudgeted, but stakeholders will ensure that it never becomes unfriended.
Diverse factions met Thursday to explore strategies for protecting the reserve and continuing visitor services, if State Parks and Recreation should close the park.
A crowd of more than 50 people expressed the importance of keeping the park open Oct. 6. They did, however, disagree on how to manage it.
