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.
Short Term Rentals

On May 3, 2022, the Mono County Board of Supervisors approved an urgency ordinance temporarily suspending County permitting of  new nightly rental operations (rentals less than 30 days, including home exchanges) on all single-family residential units regardless of land use designation. New nightly rental operations (including home exchanges) of multi-family units may continue to be processed as Use Permits, per direction given by the Board of Supervisors. Existing approvals continue to operate under annual renewal procedures.
