Quality of Life Ordinance
What is the Quality of Life Ordinance?

The Quality of Life Ordinance was implemented by the Town, effective October 2015, to provide procedures to ensure that transient rental use does not create adverse impacts to neighboring properties due to excessive traffic, noise, trash, and similar issues. Additionally, the Quality of Life Ordinance ensures that the number of occupants within transient rental units does not exceed the design capacity of the structure or cause health and safety concerns and that minimum health and safety standards are maintained to protect the visitor from unsafe or unsanitary conditions. This is consistent with the General Plan Vision Statement that the Town of Mammoth Lakes is committed to providing the very highest quality of life for our residents and and the highest quality of experience for our visitors.

I would like to rent out my property on a transient basis. What steps do I need to take?

In addition to obtaining a Business Tax Certificate and a Transient Occupancy Tax Certificate, the Quality of Life Ordinance requires specific interior and exterior signage requirements, certain standards and conditions of operation, and a home inspection by an approved inspector who has been authorized by the Town.

After submitting an application for a Business Tax Certificate and a Transient Occupancy Tax Certificate with the Finance Department, you will need to schedule a home inspection from the list of approved inspectors provided below. The inspector will have an inspection checklist provided by the Town. We strongly urge you to read the Quality of Life Ordinance and the pre-inspection checklist provided below to understand your responsibilities prior to the inspection.

See the list of approved inspectors here and the pre-inspection checklist here.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the application and inspection process, please feel free to contact Revenue Specialist, Amanda Pelham, by phone at 760-965-3660 ext. 3665.

For questions regarding the increase in occupancy policy, please contact Sandra Moberly, the Community and Economic Development Manager, by phone at 760-965-3630 ext. 3633.
