SUN SAFE TAHOE BASIN: Sun Safe Tahoe Basin seeks to provide free education and prevention methods through free sunscreen dispensers in public parks, beaches, and schools.
Sun Safe Tahoe provides equitable access to lifesaving preventative measures by introducing free sunscreen dispensers to public spaces in the North Lake Tahoe – Truckee area. By providing educational materials and a helpful website with mapped locations, we hope to increase awareness of safe outdoor recreation and the benefits of SPF use. We will start at public beaches and parks, then increase our scope to reach public school sites in TTUSD boundaries. We hope to expand the program to private businesses with “adopted” sunscreen dispensers to customize and maintain.
CARETAKER CERTIFICATION PROGRAM: The Caretaker Certification Program (CCP) provides an opportunity for North Lake Tahoe residents to certify as a caretaker to facilitate on-site services for property owners in exchange for rent or housing at the property. Full-time residents will be able to learn and utilize a skillset through the certification process that will in turn, benefit a property owner with on-site maintenance needs. As a unique approach to affordable housing, this program offers these valuable services while expanding housing stock for locals without additional development.
SOCIAL MEDIA OUTREACH: This program is to create an Instagram account that targets the younger residents in the area throughout Truckee. In a humorous way, it will describe happenings in Truckee from board meetings to live music and community happenings. Never say again “I didn’t know about that!” in Truckee.
WOOD SPLITTING FOR SENIORS: The Wood Splitting for Seniors action plan aims to provide free wood splitting, delivery, and stacking for low-income elderly members of the North Tahoe/ Truckee region. The program will coordinate volunteers and provide a location and tools to split firewood for these senior citizens in need. Firewood is an essential resource for living in the mountains but procuring it can be physically arduous. Senior citizens may have issues with mobility and strength or may be unable to split and stack their own wood. We hope our program will give seniors easy access to the resources needed to heat their homes in the winter.
TAHOE CITY REC CENTER: It is cold, days are short, and it’s evening time after school or work. There isn't much to do around. Choices are slim for recreation. Do you have fitness goals for summer? Are you training for something? Do you need someone or something to motivate you? Are you in need of a new hobby or wishing for a creative outlet? Our Action Plan idea is to introduce a new Recreation Center to the North Lake Tahoe region. Supplied with a variety of activities, the center could cater to all ages, skills, and interests.
TRANSIT INCENTIVE CAMPAIGN: The current Truckee North Tahoe public transit system, TART, allows locals and visitors to travel through the region without a car. TART Connect - the on-demand micro-transit, enables individuals to make short first-mile and last-mile trips or connect to the TART Bus. TART Bus - connects Truckee to North Lake Tahoe Along Highway 267 and Highway 89, and Mainline service allows users to travel between Sugar Pine Point State Park and Incline Village.
Despite the transit system's improvement, many people do not use public transit. We believe that if we can get a diverse range of people to try TART services, they will be more likely to use it in the future, strengthening our communities and reducing traffic congestion thereby. Our transit incentive campaign encourages people to try transit, creating a fun vibe around transit use, and supporting users with relevant information.
