Lewis County Outdoor Recreation and Tourism Commission (LCORT)

The Lewis County Outdoor Recreation and Tourism Group's - purpose is to identify current challenges and future opportunities associated with recreation and tourism in Lewis County and to position communities to minimize impacts and maximize benefits.

The Lewis County Outdoor Recreation and Tourism group brings representatives from local government, public entities and private industry together to address growing concerns with the impact of outdoor recreation and tourism. Many Lewis County communities are not taking full advantage of the existing opportunities and lack the infrastructure to support both current and future activity. By consulting the appropriate stakeholders and similar organizations already in existence, this group aims to understand both the potential strain and benefits that outdoor recreation and tourism pose and generate recommendations via a Strategic Plan to the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). The plan will consist of short-and long-term planning recommendations that focus on improving outdoor recreation and tourist experiences as well as those of the communities they affect. LCORT will guide Lewis County in creating a responsible, sustainable and profitable outdoor recreation and tourism industry that local communities will embrace.
