Research should take into account existing tourism assets in the area and what investments would drive the most demand to Jackson County. This work would incorporate not only primary research but also feedback from leaders, major stakeholders, visitors, and residents. Final product should guide the TDA on what capital investments it should make to grow the tourism market in Jackson County.
