Forest Service to Convene Planning Meetings for Shady Rest Recreation
Release Date: Feb 20, 2011 Bishop, CA
Contact(s): Nancy Upham

The US Forest Service received an OHV grant from the State of California to support recreation planning efforts for the “Shady Rest” area within the Town of Mammoth Lakes. The planning process is designed to address year round motorized use while considering the needs of non-motorized users in the immediate and surrounding area and the potential impact of proposed geothermal development. The desired outcome of the planning process is to design, review, and approve the development of a new motorized staging area.

The planning process will begin with a series of public meetings to discuss current and future recreation uses and review site development options. Information from the public meetings will be used to help develop a proposed action released to the public and subject to the National Environmental Policy Act and the California Enviornmental Quality Act.

A series of three public meetings will be held to discuss the future recreation management of the Shady Rest area:
  • Thursday, February 10 - Existing Condition, Current Uses and Needs Assessment
  • Thursday, February 17 – Multiple Uses, Recreation Development Options
  • Thursday, March 3 – Presentation and Review of Recreation Alternatives
All meetings will be held at the auditorium of the Mammoth Lakes Ranger Station and begin at 5:30pm, with an expected 1.5 hour meeting time.

For further questions regarding the recreation planning process, contact Jon Kazmierski, recreation officer for the Mammoth Lakes and Mono Lake Ranger Districts, at 760-924-5503 or jkazmierski@fs.fed.us

Third Shady Rest Recreation Planning Meeting Postponed

The Inyo National Forest received an OHV grant from the State of California to support recreation planning efforts for the “Shady Rest” area within the Town of Mammoth Lakes. The planning process is designed to address year-round motorized use while considering the needs of non-motorized users in the immediate and surrounding area, and the potential impact of proposed geothermal development. The desired outcome of the planning process is to design, review, and approve the development of a new motorized staging area.

Planning meetings held on February 10 and 17 were well attended, highly productive, and have achieved the goal of identifying several potential sites to design and construct a motorized staging area. The Forest Service, in consultation with meeting attendees, has elected to cancel the third meeting planned for Thursday, March 3.

In the coming weeks Forest Service staff will be using information generated from the two planning meetings to develop a proposed action to be released to the public in the spring or summer of this year. Upon release of the proposed action, a scoping meeting will be held and the public will be invited to review and discuss the proposed new staging area and alternatives prior to conducting environmental analysis as required by the National Environmental Policy Act.

Questions about the project can be directed to District Recreation Officer, Jon Kazmierski, by calling 760-924-5503 or jkazmierski@fs.fed.us.
