New Assembly task force examines visitor industry

November 5, 2019 – News

The Visitor Industry Task Force, comprised of Assembly and community members, was established by Juneau Mayor Beth Weldon on October 14. The goal of the task force is to provide advice to the Assembly and to advance community thinking on a range of visitor industry topics, including management of the visitor industry, CBJ’s Long Range Waterfront Plan, the idea of restricting visitor numbers, and collecting public input.

The task force is scheduled to report its findings to the Assembly by February 29, 2020 and is set to expire April 2020 unless extended by the Assembly. Task force members are Assembly member Carole Triem (Chair), Assembly member Wade Bryson, Craig Dahl (Vice-Chair), Paula Terrel, Bobbie Meszaros, Holly Johnson, Alida Bus, Kirby Day, Meilani Schijvens, and Dan Blanchard.

The committee had its introductory meeting October 22. It meets again today, November 5, at noon in City Hall Chambers. Here’s the agenda.

Comments to the task force can be emailed to City.Clerk@juneau.org and they will be forwarded to the entire task force.
