On Thursday July 23rd, DCED and Delta County Tourism Council co-hosted a gathering of 20 outdoor recreation experts, knowing that Delta County has a depth of resources related to outdoor recreation. Enhancing our outdoor recreation will positively impact our economy both through tourism and retaining and attracting individuals and businesses.
This first meeting set the stage for ongoing collaboration between public and private entities and individuals committed to enhancing our outdoor recreation opportunities in Delta County.
Through sharing and discussion common themes were identified:
- need for collaboration
- need for citizen education and outreach
- need for mapping our current assets
We are excited to continue this work and as such the group formed a Steering Committee and Mapping Committee. Stay tuned as we share our progress on this page.
