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 Tuolumne County Economic Development Company estimates that each primary job creates enough economic activity to support three secondary jobs, providing a significant boost to Tuolumne County's economy. The total impact of new jobs adds up to over 800 total new employment opportunities for our county.

Mountain Springs matches Tuolumne County's General Plan

Tuolumne County's General Plan designated the Lime Kiln area and Mountain Springs site for a new community to accommodate future growth. County planners selected this area as centrally located yet separate from existing communities, a place where roads, water and other services could be extended. Mountain Springs designers followed the General Plan policies and guidelines for "smart growth" - neighborhood clusters that leave ample areas of open space, convenient neighborhood services to reduce daily traffic trips, buffers between neighborhoods and nearby development.


Mountain Springs will make significant improvements to Lime Kiln Road and spend an estimated $5.2 million on traffic mitigation fees for future countywide road improvements over the next 12 to 15 years. Road projects will be done as new phases of the project begin.

"Our research shows the Mountain Springs project will provide more than 200 new jobs in Tuolumne County, plus an on-going boost in construction as homes are built.
"Using the most conservative estimates, we project the resort will create at least 55 jobs, the conference center with catering and support staff will create 80 jobs, the golf course expansion will add seven, the commercial area will create 62 jobs, and on-going home building will create 100 jobs per year in construction for the next 12 to 15 years.
"This is a healthy impact to the economy in Tuolumne County.
" We also need to consider the secondary jobs these primary jobs will support. Economic experts figure each primary job helps to create another three to six secondary jobs from the increase in economic activity. Using the most conservative multiplier, the new jobs at Mountain Springs will help create another 600 jobs in other industries."

Two sets of independent consultants concur: Tuolumne County's water supply is more than adequate to supply the proposed Mountain Springs project and additional growth for the next 20 years - even with a string of critical dry years. Two consultants -- HDR Engineering, Inc. for the Tuolumne Utilities District and EDAW, Inc. of San Francisco for Tuolumne County - studied this question and confirmed the finding. Using conservative, worst-case projections, the Tuolumne Utilities District can meet water demand well into the 21st Century.
