In 2016, Mono County began analyzing long-term options for locating Public Health, Behavioral Health, Environmental Health, Social Services, District Attorney, Probation, Community Development, Public Works, County Counsel, Economic Development, and County Administration services. Among the options were continued leases, purchasing existing commercial space, or building an office building at the Civic Center complex in Mammoth Lakes. Following two years of public meetings and options analysis, the Board of Supervisors directed staff to proceed with the construction of the Civic Center office building on June 5th, 2018.
The resulting design-build contract was entered into on August 7th, 2018, with a total project budget of $20.5 million. Construction began in April of 2019, and the project was officially completed in October 2020.
