Members of the Pilot Mountain Community are working with Friends of the Sauratown Mountains to create a specialty license plate for approval by the North Carolina legislature. The plate will generate a stream of income for Friends to be used for projects not covered by the State at Pilot Mountain State Park as North Carolina vehicle license plates are purchased. This is a great way to showcase our beloved iconic mountain.
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, you must fill out the form provided and attach a check for $30 made payable to Friends of Sauratown Mountains. You will also need to pay your normal plate fees at time of renewal. Twenty dollars of the $30 fee will go towards work at Pilot Mountain State Park by Friends.
If we are unable to obtain the 300 forms then the fees and the forms will be returned to the applicants. FSM will not cash the checks until we have 300 applicants.
The process will take several months so we appreciate your patience. We must have 300 applications by February 1, 2021 to submit to the General Assembly for approval. If approved, the first plates will probably start being issued June 2021 at the earliest.
The form plus your check may be returned to Pilot Mountain Town Hall or mailed to Friends of Sauratown Mountains at PO Box 353, Danbury, NC 27016.
