Cannabis Regulations


In November 2016, Proposition 64 (the Adult Use of Marijuana Act or “AUMA”) passed in all precincts of Mono County, and the majority of California. Mono County does not have an ordinance allowing for medical or recreational cannabis land-uses such as dispensaries, processing or manufacturing operations, or cultivation in unincorporated Mono County (all lands outside the Town of Mammoth Lakes).

Race Communications Fiber Installation Use Permitting Process

To facilitate delivery of last mile internet service off the Digital 395 backbone, Race Communications proposes to install strand and fiber on existing utility poles, install fiber in existing underground conduit and newly proposed underground conduit, along with associated infrastructure (power vaults and distribution panels) in various Mono County communities. 

General Plan EIR

The County of Mono, as Lead Agency, determined that the 2015 RTP/General Plan Update is a 'project' as defined in the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) guidelines, and requires the preparation of an EIR. In compliance with CEQA, the EIR documents posted on this website have been prepared to analyze the potential environmental effects associated with implementation of the project.
