The Town of Mammoth Lakes will post a schedule of the Measure U funding cycle on the dedicated Measure U page located under the Recreation Department. This schedule will indicate application open and closing dates, Measure U Steering Committee/Application Committee meetings for applicant presentations and review, including the scheduled Town Council meeting for review and potential adoption.
All applicants who would like to apply for Measure U funds must complete the following 6 Step application process:
STEP 1: Applicants obtain the Measure U Funding Award Timeline, Application Form, Evaluation Filter and Applicant Information Packet from the Town of Mammoth Lakes.
STEP 2: Applicants meet with designated Town staff to “pre-screen” and review project application and requirements.
STEP 3: Applicants deliver completed Measure U application to the Town of Mammoth Lakes by established deadline.
STEP 4: Designated Town staff meet with the Measure U Steering Committee/Application Committee to review submitted project applications for Primary Filter requirements. If an application does not meet the Primary Filter requirements, it is eliminated from the remainder of the process for that funding cycle.
STEP 5: Qualified applicants make a public presentation to the Measure U Steering Committee/Application Committee. This is an opportunity to clarify any questions the Committee may have regarding the application.
STEP 6: The Measure U Steering Committee/Application Committee uses the Project Filter for evaluation, and makes a recommendation to the Town Council for an “up or down” vote of the recommended projects and their applications.
If the Town Council does not agree with the Measure U Steering Committee/Application Committee project funding recommendations, the Town Council would send the complete set of applications back to the committee with their comments/suggestions. The Measure U Steering Committee/Application Committee could reconsider their recommendations and resubmit to the Town Council for approval.
