Please join a group discussion aimed at identifying potential Placer County TOT funded projects that would benefit Donner Summit (Nevada/Placer County).
Transient Occupancy Taxes are collected by the counties from vacation rentals, motels and hotels and other short-term housing uses. The purpose of the tax is to balance the costs and benefits of tourism to preserve our communities and our quality of life.
Once a year, Placer County/North Lake Tahoe Resort Association has a “call for project funding requests” to handle the $1.5 million that they allocate out to benefit the Placer County tourist community each year. A group is forming to write an application and would like to solicit ideas from the public.
Some ideas from past DSAA meetings include:
- Bear-proof trash
- Walkable Soda Springs core project
- Public Park
- Community Center
- Directional signage for recreation areas/trailheads
- Comprehensive Donner Summit website and media campaign
Please take the survey to add your ideas.
Feel free to join the conversation on our Facebook page.
