Parks and Rec looks at Kahle project

The Douglas County Parks and Recreation staff will ask the commission for conformation regarding the proposed Kahle Park Phase II project elements at tonight’s meeting.

Currently, the plan includes a recreation center with a basketball court, two volleyball courts, a jogging track, a weight room with cardiovascular equipment, a child care center, and an indoor playground, according to Scott Morgan, director of community services for the county.

Morgan said tonight’s discussion will not center on funding but rather try to gain approval from the commission as to what should be done with the funds.

He said he is not anticipating any changes to the plans for improvements.

The Douglas County Commission voted 3-2 to approve funding for Phase II on Feb. 19.

Two commissioners, Bernie Curtis and Kelly Kite, voted against using Transient Occupancy Tax funds for the project.

The commission had to approve the funding this year, if at all, as 1999 will see Assembly Bill 616 in action which prohibits using room tax money for bonding projects.

AB 616 came out of the Tahoe Citizen’s Committee’s push for a Tahoe County at last year’s session of the Nevada State Legislature. The bill will force the county to take room tax funds from the valley portion of the county and shift them to the lake portion for promotion of tourism.

What: Douglas County Parks and Recreation Commission

When: 7 p.m., tonight

Where: Kahle Community Center Conference Room, Stateline, Nevada
