Tourism committee to host open houses

Residents and stakeholders will have an opportunity to comment on an initial draft list of priorities for tourism initiatives, part of a three-year tourism strategic plan.

Initiated by the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation and its Tourism Leadership  Committee, the plan is being designed to enhance the region's tourism product and promote tourism more effectively.

Open houses are scheduled for Wednesday (Nov. 14) from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Haven on Gabriola Island and from 5-8 p.m. at Living Forest Campground.

The Grand Hotel will host the Thursday (Nov. 15) open house from 4:30-7:30 p.m.

"The TLC values the feedback of both tourism stakeholders and the broader community," said Dan Brady, chairman of the Tourism Leadership Committee. "We look forward to thoughtful discussions."

A final report is expected to be released by the end of the year.
