Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow is a community-wide initiative of the Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce to stimulate economic and community development on the Eastern Shore. This bold five-year program continues the progress established through the Blueprint for Tomorrow initiative and re-energizes cooperation between our private corporate community and our elected officials for the good of our entire community.
Tourism has become an essential component of aggressive economic development in many Southeastern communities. Promoting and enhancing the Eastern Shores natural beauty, access to beaches and water and expanding recreational opportunities will significantly enhance the economic foundation of the Eastern Shore community. Visitors to the Eastern Shore routinely mean heads in beds and feet under tables as hoteliers and restaurateurs meet the dining and lodging needs of our visitors.
The mission of Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow is simple to create sound economic growth by defining and addressing the Eastern Shores needs and opportunities. Working closely together through the Chamber of Commerce, our public and private leadership will develop new strategies to enable the Eastern Shore and Baldwin County to take control of their economic destiny. Here are just a few benefits that will accrue to your business and our community through your support of this important initiative:
Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow will significantly expand marketing efforts to establish the Eastern Shore as a major tourist destination.
Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow will organize and market the Eastern Shore as a location for sports tournaments of all kinds, drawing hundreds of participants and their families to the area.
Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow will increase Eastern Shore hotel occupancy and restaurant servings by 20% based on 2009 data.
Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow will increase visitors to the Eastern Shore by 20% over the five-year period.
The success of Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow is dependent on the strong leadership and pace-setting financial commitment of Eastern Shore and Baldwin Countys business and public leaders. The men and women who are leading Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow are strongly committed to the future of our community. Now we urge you to partner with us and join Blueprint for a Better Tomorrow.
