"Besides OSV, what thing(s) would you want to promote here in town to attract more tourists? You can choose more than one."The towns history and character: 50%
Eco-tourism, Hiking, boating, fishing biking...: 75%
The Arts: 32%
The scenery: 18%
Country Fair like Spencer or Woodstock: 18%
My idea is not here: 6%
There was a great response to the poll, and it was a solid majority of those that participated that voted for eco-tourism. The towns history came in second. So, my question to you now is, how do we go about promoting these ideas? Do we present them to the Board of Selectmen? Remember, if you present anything, you must always be ready to serve in some capacity if asked.
What specific eco-tourist kind of ideas would you like to see. Send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org, and after a bit I'll post them here.
Promoting the towns history came in second. What ways would be the best to promote this? Would specific events that occurred in town be promoted? Specific landmarks? A children's book? Again, send your ideas to email@example.com.
Let's brainstorm a bit, and see what we come up with. Who knows, with the proper vision, presentation, and work, we could see something in the works by spring.
In the meantime, don't be shy, write to the Town Manager, and the Board of Selectmen, and tell them of your ideas.
