Community Economic Impact: 

Potential position impact for community is a significant benefit that can be measured. Tourism impacts the local economy in terms of new money brought into the Community by visitors. Overnight stays bring in more dollars than day visits. 

Selection Process:

When the application solicitation period opens, the Hotel/Motel Board will use every opportunity to inform potential applicants of the funding process and its eligibility criteria. During that period, the Board will also be available to potential applicants to provide technical assistance as applicants prepare their requests. When the solicitation period closes, qualifying applications will then be forwarded to the Hotel-Motel Board for review. The Board will develop a package that will recommend which projects to be funded and at what levels. This package will then be forwarded to the Budget Committee, which will then:

Return it to the Hotel/Motel Board with recommendation for changes, or 
Recommend it to the City Council for approval

If not approved by the City Council, the Council will return the package to the Hotel/Motel Board with recommendations for changes when they make their final decision.

The Hotel/Motel Tax Allocation Board Must Approve All Allocation of Funds.
