An Opportunity for Input on Occupancy Tax Revenue

The Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority (TDA) is seeking input from residents. Did you know that overnight visitors to Asheville and Buncombe County pay a lodging tax that helps to fund grants to community projects like parks, theaters, museums, sports facilities, historic sites, and greenways?

The Tourism Product Development Fund, administered by the TDA and funded through occupancy tax revenue, has awarded $44 million to 39 projects, including the Enka Sports Park Complex, Pack Square Park, WNC Nature Center, the Woodfin Greenway & Blueway, and the River Arts District.

To insure that residents have a voice in prioritizing the needs and opportunities for using these funds in the future (within the mandates set forth by the NC General Assembly), a collaborative process called the Buncombe County Tourism Management & Investment Plan (TMIP) is now underway. This is where you come in, with two opportunities to provide your input.
