Visitor Center and Tourism Analysis

Evaluated the city’s tourism product, both attractions and infrastructure, developed proposals for a new or enhanced visitor center, and analyzed site options.  Input from stakeholders was a key element of this project.  The team, consisting of tourism and display consultants, architects, and engineers, made on-site observations, conducted one-on-one interviews, developed and distributed visitor and bus surveys, facilitated focus groups, made numerous presentations to working groups, and met regularly with the City Manager, Mayor, and Planning Commissioner.  Based on the information collected and the expertise of the team, initial recommendations and drawings were presented to the community.
