Defensible Space and Community Clean-Up Event - June 25-27: https://www.townofmammothlakes.ca.gov/967/Defensible-Space-and-Community-Clean-Up
Stacy Corless, Mono County Board of Supervisors
Here is information from the Yosemite National Park Superintendent's Office regarding the pass through program. It continues as it has since 1998: Yosemite National Park's ZIP Code Pass Through Program has been in place since 1998 and is authorized by Public Law 105-277, Section 115. This piece of legislation prohibits units of the National Park Service from reducing or eliminating entrance fees for non-local travel through the unit, but allows each unit to develop guidelines to allow for local non-recreational passage that is exempt from entrance fees.The goal of Yosemite's long-established program is to meet the legitimate need of local permanent residents who have no other reasonable alternative route to cross the Sierra without traversing Yosemite. In some cases, one community authorized under the program might actually be a greater distance from Yosemite than another community, but if the second community has a closer alternative route (such as Highway 108), it would not be included.
Stacy Corless, Mono County Board of Supervisors
Part 2/3: Travel through the park must be non-recreational in nature and only permanent residents of the authorized communities are eligible for the program. Required documentation of a California Driver License or California ID Card indicating one of the authorized communities as their permanent residence must be presented upon arrival at the entrance station. For the rest of 2020, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and associated closures of Department of Motor Vehicle offices, a permanent change of address form from the United States Postal Service will also be accepted as proof of permanent residency. Once eligibility is confirmed, the ranger will issue a pass that allows a reasonable amount of time to drive from the point of entry to the entrance station they will exit. The pass must be presented upon exit.Here is a list of the 7 Mono County communities and the one Inyo County community that qualify for a fee exemption for local non-recreational travel through Yosemite.

The local resident would simply need to drive to the entrance station, present their California DL or ID (or USPS permanent change of residence) that shows one of the listed ZIP codes, and they will be allowed non-recreational passage through the park.

welcome back to the wild
Lucas Ropke
Wilderness permits and communication with Forest Service has been a nightmare, several groups are just heading out without permits, it would be nice to get a contact or have any Forest Service supervisor involved in this type of meeting, we all work along each other, but at the same time they work so distant from us.
