The Nevada Division of State Parks is holding Recreational Trails Committee meetings May 8 and 9 to hear and rate applications for 2013 federal funding. The meetings will be held at 901 S. Stewart Street, Carson City, on the fifth floor. Meetings will begin at 8 a.m. both days.
The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) is a federal-aid assistance program to help states provide and maintain recreational trails for both motorized and non-motorized trail use. The program provides funding for all kinds of recreational trail uses, such as pedestrian uses (hiking, running, wheelchair use), bicycling, in-line skating, equestrian use, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, off-road motorcycling, all-terrain vehicle riding, four-wheel driving, or using other off-road motorized vehicles.
Each state develops its own procedures to solicit projects from project sponsors, and to select projects for funding, in response to recreationa trail needs within the State.
Public comment periods will be at 9:30 a.m. on May 8 and at 8:20 a.m. on May 9 and are limited to 3 minutes per person. All presentations are open to the public. For an agenda, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
