I will use this page to monitor the progress of local governments to attract tourist to Nevada County. The major indicators will be the increase in visitors to the County Tourism site and jobs in the Food and Beverage Employment industry in Nevada County.
Here are the unique visitor stats through May of 2012:
As you can see through May there was an increase in visitors. I comparison my monthly unique visitors for May were 5,281. It appears the effort to increase visitor was small success. I will update the chart when the June numbers are posted.
Nevada County Business News Top Fifty:
There was a slight increase in the Food/Beverage/Lodging numbers from June, but Service/Leisure segment lost 99 jobs. It is not clear that the County Tourism Webpage is have a significant impact. Stay Tuned.
