City takes on tourism; Trail chamber loses Visitor Information Centre

The City of Trail will tackle tourism from the new Riverfront Centre in early 2018

Early in the year, the city advised the Trail and District Chamber of Commerce that they were looking at the option of integrating the Visitor Information Centre into the Riverfront Centre, says Executive Director Audry Durham.

“The Chamber of Commerce has maintained the visitor centre on a fee for service basis with the City of Trail for many years,” she explained. “The contract was done on an annual basis which has proven problematic for the chamber in developing any long term plans.”

City council appears to see an opportunity to utilize space in the new facility and combine the museum and visitors centre as one function, she added.

“The chamber will continue to operate the Teck Interpretive Centre and promote the business community in the Greater Trail region.”
