“Lane’s welcome mat”

Posted in General Business,Retail by ebs4pos on January 20, 2010

Lane County’s where it’s at — and the folks at Travel Lane County want everyone to know, according to CEO Kari Westlund. That’s why the organization has worked to build a $300,000, 2,000-square-foot visitor information center, dubbed the Adventure Center, in the Crossroads shopping center off Gateway Street.Travel Lane County has been developing the visitor center, which is set to open by Feb. 1, for about six years, Westlund said. It was funded by cash reserves generated by hotel room taxes and funds the agency generates through other means, such as ad sales. It will cost about $150,000 to operate each year.But Westlund said it should be worth every penny of the construction and operational costs. “We can provide a wonderful introduction to Lane County here,” she said.
