Watt says Penticton needs to work with neighbours

City of Penticton: Watt, Campbell Council Candidate answers how to boost sports and other alternate types of tourism

In addition to what exists within the city there are also opportunities to be working hand in hand with our neighbors in the Penticton Indian Band and regional district.

One thing we could do is find a way to help organizers put on successful events by compiling a current list of local sports organizations and also by creating a standardized events and festivals protocol as well as a shared calender.

Another type of tourism that I believe is wildly under utilized here is the art and cultural tourism sector. I also feel there is a need in the community for further  infrastructure to meet the needs of traveling live performance groups.
