In a resolution approved at the assembly meeting on Tuesday the program objectives for tourism promotion must comply with Section 2 of that ordinance approving the grant. Assembly member Brent Hibbert: “Earlier we appropriated a $150,000 grant that was awarded to the Kenai Peninsula Tourism & Marketing. This resolution approves the objectives of tourism and marketing to comply.” This resolution also approves these program objectives for FY 2021 as the FY 2021 grant applications are due February 15, 2020, according to a memo to the assembly from Hibbert. The objectives are:1. Develop and implement strategies for attracting online impressions 1 (e.g. a view of an ad) and conversions2, and tracking conversions of impressions to sales in the tourism markets; and2. Promote significant increases in tourism during the shoulder seasons. Hibbert: “The code requires the assembly to approve the program objectives before any applications may be approved or expenditures made from tourism marketing grants. Approving these now allows any applicant to tailor their application to meet these objectives.” The sum of $150,000 is appropriated from the General Fund, fund balance to account for Peninsula Promotion – KPTMC was formed for the purpose of promoting tourism in the areas outside of the cities inside the Kenai Peninsula Borough.
