About the committee

The Tourism Advisory Committee meets as needed to:

  • discuss tourism-related activities, opportunities, and challenges;
  • review and oversee tourism programs;
  • and advise City Council on the expenditure of funds on tourism-related activities and tourism matters.

The committee also awards Collaborative Tourism Promotion (CTP) grants should those funds exist in the budget.
