The Clay Chamber of Commerce will serve as a host for the state’s Rural Outdoor Taskforce meeting on Wednesday, January 19th.
Director Doug Young said that the purpose of the meeting is to get local input and to discuss opportunities to leverage state lands to grow rural tourism.
“Like Standing Stone State Park is just seven miles away from us,” Young said. “And even though it’s not in Clay County, we can still build tourism around that state park.”
Young said that hopefully, this will be a starting point to forming a solid strategic plan for the spring.
Young said that because tourism dollars are such a huge part of the economy, they want to ensure they address the wants of the community.
