Tourism groups look to share director

County commission offers shared logo and website



Hendrickson then asked the city tourism commission to help with the manual labor by splitting the restaurants up to put up and take down the signs.

“I think it would do two things,” Hendrickson said.  “One it would serve the purpose to welcome this group and make them want to come back to London and it would be some good PR with your restaurants because of the proposed restaurant tax.  I really don’t think from some of the comments made that they understand all that these events do to bring business to London.”

Rudder also suggested the city tourism commission work on a logo they could have put on signs like the ones used for the USSSA tournaments.

“A tourist doesn’t separate London and Laurel County,” Hendrickson said.  “They couldn’t care less where that city boundary is.  On things like logos and websites, I’d like for us to have one and both use it jointly.  I think it’d be confusing to tourists to have two.” 

Hendrickson told the city tourism commission they could use the new logo that the London Laurel County Tourist Commission recently created. 

“The one that we’ve been using lately doesn’t even say tourist commission; it’s just got the trees and it says London Laurel County, Cross Roads to Adventure.  You’re more than welcome to share that with us.”

London Commission member Holly Little felt that sharing the logo would create a cooperative spirit and help to ease harsh criticisms of the public about the new commission and recent tax.

The meeting opened with nominations for the vacant board position representing the hotels and motels in Laurel County.
