The Mountain Springs Community will become a major new employer for Tuolumne County. Experts predict the conference center, resort and commercial center when complete will create more than 200 new jobs, and new construction will provide 100 jobs per year over the next 12 to 15 years.

The Village Center: a resort hotel and conference center with shopping and recreation.

The Mountain Springs Village Center, with its resort and conference center, will be the hub of our new community, serving Mountain Springs residents, visitors and the county at large.
The plans call for a conference center and 200-room hotel which will fill a major need for Tuolumne County, with an attractive, comfortable setting for major meetings and events. The planned conference center will have a great room that will accommodate seating for up to 475 people. Four meeting rooms will accommodate 115 each while two break-out rooms will hold up to 235 each. Amenities will include all levels of catering, from casual buffets to formal sit-down dining. The Mountain Springs Resort and Conference Center will have a high quality, thoughtful design. The natural look of stone and stucco features will complement the beauty of the foothill setting.

Village Center shops will offer convenient shopping and services for residents and resort visitors.

The popular Mountain Springs Golf Course will also be improved. The existing clubhouse and pro shop will be enlarged, and the course itself will undergo renovation on several fairways, greens and tees.

The Village Center plans include a new community recreation center, with fitness facilities, tennis courts, swimming pool and meeting areas for events and activities.

"Mountain Springs and its resort hotel and conference center will fill a big need for Tuolumne County's economy. Our area is a beautiful destination for visitors from around the state and the world, and it would be a natural choice for all kinds of meetings, retreats and conventions. To date we have no place for larger groups to meet. We often have to turn down inquiries for reunions, conventions and special events. Even our own local organizations have to go elsewhere for regional meetings. Having a beautiful new resort and conference center will provide important new income for our growing tourism and recreation industry.

-- Nanci Sikes, Executive Director
Tuolumne County Visitors Bureau

"I have lived in Tuolumne County all my life. We need to remember that the Mountain Springs project will take 15 to 20 years to complete. That point often gets overlooked. And many of this new community's future residents will be age 55 and older. These residents will have little impact on the school system and roads, but will be very supportive of local theater and arts as well as community service."
