Tourism Committee

The Joint Tourism Committee met on February 13, 2019 and discussed the objectives of its three subcommittees involving wayfinding signage, marketing/branding, and a local ambassador program. The contracts have been finalized with Frazier Associates for the wayfinding signage project; that project is expected to kick-off in March 2019. The committee also discussed several other projects to make priorities in the coming year; including a local business ambassador program to train employees on what the community offers for tourism; marketing tips for local tourism businesses; and a tourism grant program.
