The heavy lifting of the Tourism Development Fund (TDF) application review process is done by the Tourism Development Grant Review Committee. The committee is:

  • Appointed by the City Council
  • Members serve two years and must be replaced or reappointed. A member may serve as many as three terms. This means that no one member's terms on the committee shall exceed six years of service.
  • Made up of five members and two ex-officio members (one from the Planning Commission and one from the Economic Development Authority). Three must be representatives of the tourism industry and two will be at-large community appointees.

The committee will review every Phase 2 application and make funding recommendations to City Council.
