Crowley Lake Fish Camp Mitigated Negative Declaration

Mono County has primary lead agency responsibilities for land use permits and approvals on the Crowley Lake Fish Camp site, with the exception of decisions pertaining to LADWP’s water conveyance and utility operations.  Mono County permits and approvals for the Fish Camp project include adoption of this Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND), approval of proposed project elements, issuance of Conditional Use Permits (CUPs), and other approvals such as building permits and/or environmental health permits.

We seek input on planning matters of interest to local residents and property owners through Regional Planning Advisory Committees (RPACs), task groups, surveys, local media, and public hearings before the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors.
