Schroon to discuss future of tourism

SCHROON LAKE - The Schroon Lake Tourism Committee will discuss the community's future with a consultant Wednesday, Nov. 11.

The public is invited to attend the meeting at 5 p.m. at the Schroon town hall.

"In May of 2008 a small committee of Schroon Lakers began meeting with Egret Communication,s who contracted with the Essex County Lake Placid Visitors Bureau to guide our committee in a planning project designed to engineer future tourism for the town of Schroon," explained Roger Friedman, town trustee and committee chairman.

Friedman the process included some "dreaming" as well as facing the challenge of practical matters. The culmination is an action plan that includes the designation of responsible parties and timetables for action.

The goals of the Nov. 11 meeting are to present and review the tourism blueprint that the committee has formulated including an action plan; create a broad-based tourism council that will work under the auspices and together with the Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce; and receive feedback from those attending the meeting.

A presentation will be given by the consultant from Egret Communications.
