Hello, Tourism Supporters-
I hope this note finds you well and enjoying this beautiful fall weather.
Attached (below) are the following documents: June minutes, August minutes, and October agenda.
Amador Council of Tourism’s Board of Directors meeting is Thursday, October 13th, 9 am, in Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort’s hotel conference room. Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort generously provides a light breakfast with tea, coffee and water. I will be there at 8:30 if you wish to discuss something with me before the meeting and I will stay afterward as well. You are welcome to join us. We cover the agendain one hour and then go around the table quickly to facilitate networking opportunities. Please allow 1 hour for ACT business and up to 30 minutes for the sharing.
1. Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan Update: Please make some time to take a survey and add your knowledge to bicycle and pedestrian routes at
Below is a note from Allison Platt, project manager for Amador County Transportation Commission:
"Please visit to stay up to date on the planning process. We want to know more about the community's current experience with walking and biking in the area. By visiting the website there are several ways that you can get involved in the process. First, you can use the Public Comment Map to help us to identify where you already walk and bike in Amador County, points of interest such as historical sites or community assets that can be accessed by walkers and bikers as well as existing hazards . Second, you can take our survey to help us better understand your walking and biking needs in the area. More information is available on the website. The public comment period to participate in the survey and comment map will be open until November 14th, 2016."

2. Plaid Friday Amador, Friday, November 25th: Thanks to those of you who have already sent in your specials for this ‘shop local’ event. If you missed my previous email, Amador Council of Tourism and Amador County Chamber of Commerce are partnering to promote Plaid Friday Amador. Instead of Black Friday, we are carrying on Plaid Friday Amador, the tradition initiated by Jeannette MacDonald of Gifted, Main Street Jackson. Send your information to us here at or to the Chamber at We will get the word out and generate buzz. So far your enthusiasm has been wonderful- thank you.
Please do call or email me if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions.
See you next week.
Thank you for your support,
