STRATEGY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF TOURISM IN ERIE COUNTY AND THE CITY OF BUFFALO, NY
The study is part of the economic adjustment strategy developed for government planner and private industry to create new jobs and stimulate economic growth in Buffalo and Erie County. The report evaluates the present tourism industry for potential growth and concludes that there are ample markets for Greater Buffalo and a solid foundation of offerings which represent a viable, marketable mix attraction for the family market. Significant tourism growth can be achieved in the form of: increased penetration of the high Niagara Corridor pass-through traffic; a widened market from which tourists would be drawn; and longer average stays per visitor. It is recommended that a single organization to implement the program be created along with seven tourist information centers. The report also discusses general financing alternatives and resources and immediate next steps toward both program implementation and creation of a master plan and timetables.
