Kate West Staff Writer Less than one month after Vera Sulpizio, of Civitas, traveled to Chester to offer a presentation about tourism business improvement districts, a second meeting date has been set by Coldwell Banker Kehr-O'Brien property manager Susan Bryner. The meeting will be held Wednesday, Aug. 20, at 9 a.m. at the Best Western Rose Quartz Inn. "The purpose of this meeting is for Lake Almanor lodging providers to come together to discuss tourism improvement business districts and how such an entity could benefit tourism marketing in our area," said Bryner. "Myself, Filip Laboda and Ghulam Fareed attended the July 24 meeting to learn about the potential of forming such a district in our area. We were impressed by the information presented and the potential it represented for the future growth of tourism in our area," Bryner said. She said another purpose for the meeting was to provide a venue where TBID possibilities could be discussed more fully and lodging providers could offer their thoughts on forming one for the area. Bryner summarized what the initial group saw as potential outcomes of forming a TBID: --Funding for the development and implementation of a State of Jefferson Town Hall Meeting Sunday, Aug. 24, from 2-4 p.m. Graeagle Fire Hall, 7620 Highway 89, Graeagle r This State of Jefferson Town Hall will be a comfortable setting to learn and get answers to your questions like: Why are the residents of Plumas County not being adequately represented on statewide issues?
