Thanks to the overwhelming support of thousands of Colorado residents, the Rocky Mountain National Park Group Special License Plate will soon be a reality. The plate was approved by the Colorado Senate by a vote of 27 to 8 on May 6, 2015. The bill was sponsored by Senator Randy Baumgardner and Representative K.C. Becker. Details are forthcoming, but plates may be available as soon as December, 2015.
The Conservancy will administer this group special license plate which will be available to Colorado-registered vehicle owners. It will not replace the standard Colorado state license plate, but will be a voluntary fundraising option through the State’s Group Special Plate program. The effort coincides with the ongoing celebration of Rocky Mountain National Park’s Centennial.
In addition to the usual fees imposed by the state for a special plate, the qualifying donation to the Rocky Mountain Conservancy (the park’s official fundraising partner organization) will be a minimum of $25 to a maximum of $75 (donor choice). 100% of the funds generated, estimated at thousands of dollars annually, will directly support Rocky Mountain National Park.
