Public input sought on spending license plate revenue

Staff Reports

The Nevada Division of State Lands wants the help of the public in deciding how to spend $225,000 that has been raised from the Lake Tahoe license plate program.

Two meetings will be held at Lake Tahoe to determine what kind of programs the public feels the money should fund.

A North Shore meeting is scheduled for Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Incline Village General Improvement District office, 893 Southwood Blvd., Incline Village. A South Shore meeting is scheduled for April 29 at 6 p.m. at the Lake Tahoe branch of the Douglas County Library, 233 Warrior Way, Zephyr Cove.

State Lands is not looking for specific project ideas but rather types of projects the public would like to see implemented, such as stream restoration, erosion control, recreation, bike trails, public transit, forest health and wildlife enhancement.

More than 10,000 motorists have purchased the distinctive Lake Tahoe license plates since they became available 14 months ago.
