The heavy lifting of the TDF application review process is done by the Tourism Development Review Committee. The committee is:
- appointed by the City Council;
- members serve two years and must be replaced or reappointed. A member may serve as many as three terms. This means that no one member’s terms on the committee shall exceed six years of service;
- made up of five members and two ex-officio members (one from the Planning Commission and one from the Economic Development Authority). Three must be representatives of the tourism industry and two will be at-large community appointees.
The committee will review every Phase 2 application and make funding recommendations to City Council.
