53 "SECTION 1. Legislative declaration. (1) The general assembly
54 hereby finds and declares that:
55
1 (a) In recent years, the role of destination marketing and
2 management organizations in Colorado has evolved to not only support
3 economic growth through tourism, but also to address the social, cultural,
4 and environmental issues related to tourism. In addition to inspiring travel
5 to and within a destination and enhancing a visitor's experience,
6 destination marketing and management organizations now use their
7 expertise to protect our destinations' cultural and natural assets and
8 improve our residents' quality of life. For example, the Colorado tourism
9 office has embedded destination stewardship and sustainable travel
10 principles into its strategic plans, annual campaigns, and key
11 programming.
12 (b) Destination marketing and management organizations across
13 the state are increasingly using their marketing budgets and robust
14 communication channels to disperse travelers and educate visitors on how
15 to travel responsibly and lessen their impact. With values-based
16 marketing campaigns and educational programs like the Colorado tourism
17 office's "Care for Colorado" and "Do Colorado Right", these
18 organizations are well-positioned to deliver messages that encourage the
19 positive change our communities ask all visitors--local, domestic, and
20 international--to adopt while in Colorado.
21 (c) The strides and responsive nature of this marketing approach
22 play a key role in ensuring that visitors responsibly enjoy their stays in the
23 state. A visitor's experience is also heavily influenced by the host
24 community's ability to support their residents and local workforce with
25 housing and other essential services, as well as a strong quality of life that
26 comes with our amazing natural and cultural assets. A thriving
27 community ensures more positive visitor interactions and experiences in
28 our restaurants, on our trails, and throughout our main streets. This, in
29 turn, increases the likelihood that a visitor will return and continue to
30 support our local businesses. Robust support for our residents' needs is
31 essential to the long-term health of both our communities and our
32 economy.".
