Mono County

Welcome to the Planning Division

  • About the Planning Division

    The Planning Division provides information and collaborates with agencies, organizations and departments involved in planning, environmental review, and development policies. We seek input on planning matters of interest to local residents and property owners through Regional Planning Advisory Committees (RPACs), task groups, surveys, local media, and public hearings before the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors.

    The Planning Division processes permit applications as quickly as possible without compromising the quality of planning services. We maintain continuity between the planning offices in Mammoth Lakes and Bridgeport, and ensure consistent information is provided to the public. The Planning Division coordinates with other departments, community groups, organizations and agencies, and forms partnerships to resolve planning issues.

    The Community Development Department offers a wide array of options on our Online Services page.

    Our mission is to provide efficient, responsive, and innovative public service through teamwork.

    Design recommendations for public and private improvements in communities along the U.S. Route 395 in the Eastern Sierra. Recommendations for signage and wayfinding as well as access for pedestrians and bicyclists, and streetscape as it passes through individual communities. This document seeks to record the unique and varied community character while offering design ideas on how to build upon that character and contribute to Mono County's unique sense of place.
