The City of White Rock has compiled a list of stakeholders, business owners and industry experts who will make up its tourism task force.
The 12-person task force – which includes Couns. Lynne Sinclair and Helen Fathers representing council – will work under the direction of a consultant to undertake initiatives towards developing a Tourism Strategy for the city.
Appointees include Betina Albornoz and Doug Hart from Tourism White Rock; Cliff Annable and Jim Purcell from the South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce; Douglas Smith and Susy Tucker from the White Rock Business Improvement Association; Bob Bezubiak, chair of the White Rock economic development committee; Gordie Sanga, manager of the Ocean Promenade Hotel; Jan Wait, owner of Jan’s On The Beach Restaurant; and Cathy James from Tourism Surrey.
The city hopes to have its Tourism Strategy in place by early October, in time for consideration for the city’s five-year financial plan.
