Public Input Sought for Lower Richland Tourism and Economic Development Plan

The Richland County Conservation Commission and Planning Department are seeking public input about initial recommendations for promoting nature and heritage tourism in Lower Richland. These recommendations were generated during a community meeting held in November.

At that meeting, residents suggested types of nature-based recreation and amenities they’d like to see established on two County-owned tracts of land near Hopkins. Residents also discussed promoting cultural and agricultural sites and activities throughout Lower Richland and creating small business opportunities to enhance tourism.

Residents are invited to attend this next round of meetings to provide feedback on the preliminary recommendations. Following a presentation, there will be an open house format for attendees to give input in three areas:  economic development, nature tourism and heritage tourism.
