Each year, the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) honors the most innovative programs developed and implemented by California Counties through Challenge Awards. These unique awards recognize the innovative and creative spirit of California county governments as they find effective and cost-saving ways to provide programs and services to their citizens.
On October 20, 2015, the Mono County Board of Supervisors directed staff to engage in a public process to develop a Conway Ranch Strategic Facility Plan (CRSFP) that will guide future activities, maintenance, and development of the property.
The CRSFP will identify the current baseline activities and infrastructure at Conway Ranch, will identify a master vision for the future, and will identify the projects necessary to reach the master vision. Those projects can then be prioritized and funded as resources become available.
This form is for use by County staff, officials, and members of the public to propose or request a capital improvement project within the County. A capital improvement project is a facilities or maintenance project anticipated to cost more than $1,000 or to take longer than 3 days to complete.
See link below for Project Development Flowchart. This chart outlines the steps for requests, review, approval, and implementation of facilities' improvements.
