DELTA COUNTY TOURISM – RESIDENT SURVEY

Delta County Tourism is so excited to have been awarded a Colorado Tourism Blueprint Grant!  We have a core team* of Delta County tourism stakeholders working together, with a Colorado Tourism consultant, to develop a one day “workshop” where will bring in a wider group of Delta County residents, business owners and tourism stakeholders to discuss the future of Delta County Tourism. As a part of our preparation, we would love to hear from you regarding our local tourism industry!
Click HERE to take the resident sentiment survey.

Please fill out this survey and share your ideas and opinions about tourism in Delta County. Responses are anonymous and will help us better understand resident sentiment on the best ways to develop and manage tourism locally. The survey will remain open until mid-November; we invite you to share the survey link with your friends, family and colleagues in Delta County.

If you are aware of community events that should be added to the online Tourism Calendar, please contact us at tourism@deltacounty.com.
