Hearing scheduled concerning proposed changes to Nevada Division of State Parks regulations

Nevada State Parks LogoCARSON CITY, Nev.–The Nevada Division of State Parks will hold a public hearing on December 13, 2007 from 4:00 p.m. through 6:00 p.m., at 901 South Stewart Street, Suite 5005.

The purpose of the hearing is to receive public comments regarding the amendment of regulations that pertain to Chapter 407 of the Nevada Administrative Code. The purpose for the amendment of these regulations is to provide for the equitable collection of reasonable user fees and to provide for operation and management of State Parks.

The proposed regulation represents comments the division received from the public and the Legislature and do not constitute an increase in fees but allow for a fee at three parks not presently mentioned in the Nevada Administrative Codes: Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park, the Elgin School House and Buckland Station, a new facility that has not been previously open to the public.

In addition, the division is lowering the fees at Mormon Station State Historic Park and Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort. State Parks is also recommending the addition of a multi-purpose annual permit ($125) for Rye Patch and South Fork State Recreation Areas based on requests from the public. The permit would be the same as the one currently available at Lahontan State Recreation Area. Finally, the division is modifying regulations in existing parks that are not effective and provide regulatory protection for resources and facilities contained within Nevada State Parks.

Written comments regarding the proposed changes must be received by the Nevada Division of State Parks on or before December 14, 2007. If you would like a copy of the proposed regulation, call 775-684-2770 or send an email to acloutie@parks.nv.gov.
