Each year, communities in Oregon receive a portion of tax dollars that are generated from visitors staying in local lodgings. Redmond Mayor George Endicott says the State mandates that those dollars are to be used for promote tourism in the area, and so this year, the Redmond Chamber of Commerce will receive about $152,000 for that purpose. "Promote Redmond, you know go to other event to try to attract things to come here, such as a sporting event. We’re having a BMX motorcycle, “The Rally, you know the big RV Rally, FMCA, the big motor coach association. Those are the kinds of activities to get involved with . They publish some nice glossys. The visitors bureaus do, to attract people to come to the area and spend their dollars." Endicott says the City Council elected to give the Chamber the money after representatives laid out their plans to promote the City. The Chamber reported that in 2010, Redmond hosted about a half-million visitors to the area with the various events happening in Redmond.
