The North Village Specific Plan is situated in the northwest corridor of the Town of Mammoth Lakes (see Exhibit) and consists of 41 separate parcels totaling approximately 64 acres. Since the Specific Plan was adopted in 1991 some consolidation of ownership has occurred, but the majority of land remains under multiple ownerships. The North Village Specific Plan is located adjacent to Main Street, Lake Mary Road and Minaret Road.
The primary purpose of the North Village Specific Plan is to provide new land use guidelines and development standards for the North Village area which will enable the development of a cohesive, pedestrian-oriented resort activity node, with supporting facilities to create a year-round focus for visitor activity in the Town of Mammoth Lakes. The North Village Specific Plan provides a mechanism for directing and focusing development in the project area and will contribute to the overall goal of positioning Mammoth Lakes as a year-round destination resort community.
The Pedestrian Core area is intended to be a mixed-use village with commercial uses on the ground level and accommodation units on upper floors. The scale of the individual ground level shops will vary. The village commercial center is designed as a clustering of individual buildings.

The Berner Property is currently zoned Specialty Lodging (SL) under the North Village Specific Plan’s most recent revision of January 2014. This designation has been provided for parcels located on the periphery of the North Village Specific Plan which are physically separated by topography and integrated access from the Pedestrian Core Overlay area. Often these parcels are adjacent to existing residential developments zoned RMF-2 (Residential Multiple Family-2) or RSF (Residential Single Family). Although some flexibility through the use permit process may be provided, this designation promotes land uses such as lodges, bed and breakfast establishments, resort condominiums, European-style inns, employee housing, various residential uses, and public facilities. Twenty-three parcels totaling 25.85 acres have been designated under this category.
