Those looking to help the restoration of Pilot Mountain State Park in light of the recent fire damage, have a unique opportunity to do so and show their support of the park with a Pilot Mountain license plate.
Members of the Pilot Mountain community are working with Friends of the Sauratown Mountains to create a Pilot Mountain specialty license plate for 2022.
The Pilot Mountain License Plate will generate a stream of income for Friends to be used for projects not covered by the State at Pilot Mountain State Park. In order to obtain the approval, the Pilot Mountain community and the Friends must collect 300 applications with payment for submission to the DMV.
To support this project individuals need to complete the application (link to download the PDF is at the top of the page in below link). Write a check for $30 made payable to Friends of Sauratown Mountains and date it January 1, 2022. Individuals will also need to pay the normal plate fees at the time of renewal. Twenty dollars of the $30 fee will go towards work at Pilot Mountain State Park by Friends of Sauratown Mountains.
The application plus a check may be returned to Pilot Mountain Town Hall or mailed to Friends of Sauratown Mountains at P.O. Box 353, Danbury, NC, 27016.
If approved, the first plates will probably start being issued June 2022 at the earliest.
