Janet Pollard of the Franklin County Visitors Bureau (FCVB) visited today to provide an update on the Bureau’s activities. She noted that 450,000 people visit Franklin County each year. She emphasized the benefit to the local economy, especially in local shops.

She listed the Bureau’s focus as
- tourism awareness
- increased visitation
- supporting local tourism
- maintaining the FCVB

There are over 1800 hotel rooms in Franklin County which generate about $22M per year in revenues. FCVB promotes Franklin County as a 4-seasons vacation area for nearby major urban areas. They also sponsor specific festivals and events throughout the county. They are financed with a 5% room tax on all hotels.

FCVB moved into their new home in Chambersburg on 24 Nov 2018. Located at 15 South Main Street, they renovated an old bank to make a pleasant place to see material describing what all is available in the county.

The keys to the future include sharing information about county activities, building content to routinely share, maintaining existing tourism assets, and partnering throughout the county.
