The Central Oregon Visitor's Association is reuniting with an old business associate: Economic Development for Central Oregon.

 

COVA spokesperson Alana Hughson says they shared space in the past and realized they work well together, because their goals are the same. "In a destination like Central Oregon, about 80% of new businesses that relocate here are started by people who first came to the region while they were on vacation. So there's a great crossover between COVA's mission and EDCO's long range mission."

 

Hughson says they will also be cutting expenses by sharing the new space  in the Mill Point Building.

 

The move should take place over the “slow” tourism time at the end of the year, and they plan a grand opening in January.
