Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

The Winter 2021-2022 Take Care Billboard campaign would run December 13, 2021 - April 4, 2022 and target travelers coming into the Tahoe area with mobile advertisements. All billboards will be digital, allowing the ability to change the message to focus on specific issues or holidays. These are the billboard locations available: I-80 in Colfax, Hwy 50 in Rancho Cordova, Hwy 395 at the Spaghetti Bowl (Reno), Hwy 395 before 431 exit South Reno, and Hwy 50 outside of Carson City.

 

A funding agreement is required in order for the County to process the payment to Tahoe Fund. Approval by the Board provides the finding that a public benefit is derived from supporting this endeavor, which seeks to protect the environment and safety of South Lake Tahoe.

 

ALTERNATIVES

The Board could choose not to approve the funding request, and no funding would be provided in support of these efforts.
