Tourism advisory committee stalled



The committee must include at least one person from Tupper Lake and one from Saranac Lake.

Legislators might fill one at-large seat with a person with marketing or promotions experience and the other with someone who has a background in local history.


Fawn Tatro, the county’s part-time tourism official, said this is the time of year when she works on regionalized fall promotions and that winter planning begins afterwards.

Spring and summer promotions are already set, such as the Bird Fest at the Visitors Interpretive Center at Paul Smiths in conjunction with Hamilton County’s annual birding festival, she said.

Tatro is also researching a tourism campaign around motorcycle enthusiasts.

As tourism director, she will be a non-voting member of the advisory committee and carry out activities that are most likely to boost economic development and revenue.
