Town Completes Mobility Hub Study
The Town has completed a companion document to the 2019-2021 Mobility Hub Study which is available for review on the Town’s website here. The new document (titled Mobility Hub Study and Program “Program”) was completed by using the baseline data collected during the 2019-21 Mobility Hub Study as well as information from the public outreach conducted in the summer/fall of 2021. The Program is focused on the urban core of town and considers the unique mobility needs of Mammoth Lakes to identify mobility hub locations and amenities. The Program identifies eight mobility hub locations and two initial pilot project locations within the urban core of town. The final Program will be presented to the Town Council on March 16. Review the report online.
