The Edmonson County Tourism Commission plans to have a Trail Town Committees Meeting on Tuesday, April 19 at 6 pm at the Edmonson County Library. The purpose of the meeting will be to form committees for the Edmonson/ Brownsville Trail Town Initiative Group.
Anyone interested in hiking, biking, mountain biking, use of water ways, equestrian usage or has expertise in these areas are encouraged to attend. The state also suggest each community have committees that will have knowledge or can help with signage, trail routes – those who know “the lay of the land or water”, those who can help recruit volunteers, those who can help with funding and public relations, and a merchant committee- those who have businesses that can sell goods and services to Trail Town Visitors who will benefit from more tourists in the area.
“Becoming a Trail Town works to bring your trails and services up to a marketable level to attract more tourists," said Rhonda Clemmons, Tourism Director. “It also helps to create goals of connecting existing trails that will be used by visitors and can also serve for enjoyment and improved health of your citizens. It also works to improve your local economy by bringing more people to spend money into your community.”
Anyone interested can attend the Tues. April 19 meeting at 6 PM at the Library for more information. All are welcome. Refreshments will be served.
