There will be a public meeting workshop about developing a tourism strategy for the Thompson Okanagan Regional Rail Trail on Wednesday, Sept, 2 from 3 to 5 p.m.

The conference will take place at the Ramada Hotel and Conference Centre, 2170 Harvey Ave. It is one of several such workshops being held across the Southern Interior, sponsored by the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association (TOTA) in association with Destination BC, Recreation Sites and Trails BC, Trails BC, Trans Canada Trail Society, British Columbia Cycling Coalition and Cyclo Touring BC Program.

This strategy, scheduled to be completed by October, will assist the regional rail trail network in creating an internationally export-ready tourism product and will further advance the goals presented in the 10-year regional tourism strategy.

The centerpiece of this trails strategy will be the Kettle Valley/Columbia and Western Railway rail trails routes that form the basis of the Trans Canada Trail (TCT) through the Thompson Okanagan region.

If you can’t attend a workshop, there is an online survey that can be completed for submission at www.surveymonkey.com/r/CHC9PVX.
