Annual reporting and evaluation of the program staff and committee are an important part of this process. The City Council and the community have to consistently evaluate all City programs for effectiveness. Obviously, as with any program, there is a building period. The Tourism Development Fund (TDF) will take at least five years to reach a point of measurable outcome.
It should be noted that the TDF was paused in March of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This did not affect the funding of those projects approved in November of 2019. The program reopens February 1, 2023.
