The Preliminary Recommendation is an interim product in the process of identifying and selecting projects for funding from the Special Account for the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act (Public Law 105-263), as amended, (SNPLMA). The list of projects was generated from a call for nominations for Round 14 of SNPLMA.
The eligible project categories for Round 14 are Capital Improvements; Parks, Trails, and Natural Areas; Conservation Initiatives; Environmentally Sensitive Land Acquisitions; Hazardous Fuels Reduction and Wildfire Prevention; Clark County Multi-Species Habitat Conservation Plan and Implementation (MSHCP); and the Eastern Nevada Landscape Restoration Project. The subgroup for each project category, except the MSHCP category, reviewed, scored and ranked the nominations according to criteria approved by the SNPLMA Executive Committee on July 18, 2012, for use during the round. The MSHCP category ranking process is managed by Clark County according to a process outlined in the SNPLMA Implementation Agreement.
The Preliminary Recommendation includes a proposed budget and tables in the Appendix for each of the seven project categories listed below. The projects listed on these tables are in priority order.
