Local News


The Central Oregon tourism numbers starting to come in today, and they are expected to be positive. Alana Audette with the Central Oregon Visitors Association says there are many signs that our local tourism industry is looking up. For one, she says strong retail numbers often mean people will spend money on vacations too.  "We also had a really solid Christmas season. We're going to be doing our post holiday surveys today through our office, so we'll have those numbers toward the end of the week. But the early projections and the surveys were that were conducted prior to the holiday had some pretty strong indicators for a good solid two week period." Audette says in the year over year comparison; they are expecting about a 3 to 7% increase in numbers for December. We are still about 10-15% off of the pre recessionary figures. But Audette says the momentum is definitely changing. She was a guest on KBND's Morning News Program “Your Town” this morning.
