[ARCHIVED] New Specialty Plates Launched in Roseville

The State of Minnesota’s newest specialty license plate made its debut in Roseville Thursday. The new plate, which benefits Minnesota state parks and trails, was introduced by Lt. Governor Tina Smith the Roseville License Center.

The unveiling also featured State Rep. Rick Hansen and Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Director of Parks and Trails Erika Rivers, who were among the first Minnesotans to purchase the new plates.  

The plates provide their owners with unlimited access to all 75 Minnesota state parks and recreation areas for one calendar year from purchase, replacing the need for a vehicle permit (a $25 value). Proceeds from license plate sales will directly benefit Minnesota state parks and trails.

“I purchased a new Minnesota parks and trails license plate, because it is a great way to celebrate the 125th anniversary of our park system,” said Lt. Governor Tina Smith. “And with this license plate, you also get access to all of Minnesota's state parks for one year, while you support the preservation and maintenance of our state parks and trails.”

In July, Lt. Governor Smith and the DNR announced the winning design of the new specialty plate. The new plate features an image of a canoe on the water, surrounded by Minnesota’s four seasons. Designed by Michelle Vesaas of Coon Rapids, it was chosen from among 80 entries as the winning entry in a contest that took place earlier this year in conjunction with the 125th anniversary of Minnesota State Parks and Trails.

The cost of the new plates start at $60, plus tax. The total includes a one-time $10 fee for the plate itself and a minimum $50 contribution, which is renewable annually.

The new specialty license plate is now available at Driver and Vehicle Services offices statewide, according to State officials. For more information about the new of plate and how to order it contact the Roseville License Center at 651-792-7010 or visit www.mndnr.gov/plates.
