Request for Qualifications NOW AVAILABLE!

The Town of Mammoth Lakes (Town) is excited to issue this Request for Statements of Qualifications (RFQ) for development of affordable housing on the 25-acre vacant site known as The Parcel, located in the center of Mammoth Lakes, California. The key objective of this RFQ process is to identify the Development Team consisting of one or more Developers that will be the best fit to partner with the Town to develop The Parcel in our vision of a sustainable, thriving, affordable housing community serving the year-round residents of Mammoth Lakes. The Town will be a partner throughout this project and will provide oversight, but will rely to a great extent on the successful Developer’s professional experience and qualifications for critical items including, but not limited to final detailed planning, design, financing/funding, construction and ongoing asset management.

Please note the milestone dates in the RFQ – a pre-submittal conference took place in Mammoth Lakes on November 21, and responses are due on December 19 at 4:00pm.

Thank you in advance for your interest in this opportunity to work with the Town of Mammoth Lakes to create a much-needed workforce housing community.

What is The Parcel?

The Parcel (formerly known as the Shady Rest Tract) is a 25-acre undeveloped site located in Mammoth Lakes at the west end of Tavern Road, between Manzanita Road, Center Street, and Laurel Mountain Road. The Parcel has long been zoned to fulfill a significant portion of the existing affordable housing need in Mammoth Lakes, as well as to provide other community benefits described on page 25 of the 2007 General Plan. In accordance with the recommendations of the 2017 Community Housing Action Plan, the Town of Mammoth Lakes purchased the Parcel in 2018 and has initiated a Conceptual Land Use Planning process for the site known as “Plan The Parcel”. One of the primary goals of the Plan The Parcel process, which is anticipated to last through the end of 2019, is to gather feedback from the community to incorporate into the future design and development of the site. By providing your feedback at Upcoming Events or through various opportunities on our Engage Mammoth Lakes online feedback website, you can help ensure that development of the Parcel will not only provide much needed affordable housing but will also create a unique and vibrant place that Mammoth Lakes residents and visitors can enjoy. 

This page and its sub-pages include a summary of ongoing "Plan The Parcel" Conceptual Land Use Planning efforts for The Parcel.
