CAMPO looking for alternative transport funding applications

Nevada Appeal Staff Report

The Carson Area Metropolitan Planning Organization is seeking applications by June 18 for funding of projects via the Transportation Alternative Program.

Application instructions and forms are available for downloading from the organization’s home page at, and CAMPO staffers will field questions, according to Daniel Doenges, senior transportation planner with Carson City’s Public Works Department.

The TAP concept provides financing opportunities for alternative transport infrastructure, such as trails for walking and biking.

The TAP opportunity for fiscal year 2013-14 requires a full application be filled out, including an N/A reference in form slots that aren’t deemed applicable.

If a proposed project is approved by the CAMPO board, it will be forwarded to the Nevada Department of Transportation for the next steps.
