What is the Regional Tourism Act?
The Regional Tourism Act (RTA) is a program of the Colorado Economic Development Commission, which supports economic development initiatives such as marketing, incubators, job creation incentives and other economic development projects through various funding sources. The RTA promotes diversification of the state’s economic base by providing a financing mechanism for attracting, constructing and operating large-scale regional tourism projects that include tourism or entertainment facilities that will attract a significant investment and revenue from outside the state. These projects must be:
- extraordinary and of unique nature
- anticipated to result in a substantial increase in out-of-state tourism and
- generate a significant portion of their sales tax revenue from transactions with nonresidents of the state.
What is Go NoCO?
Go NoCO was formed in response to the state of Colorado’s Regional Tourism Act. This act could potentially award us the resources to realize great new possibilities in northern Colorado. Backed by the city of Loveland, the town of Windsor, Larimer County and several private partners including Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch, McWhinney, Water Valley Land Company and more, Go NoCO is already planning some exciting projects to draw a significant number of new regional, national and international tourists, while also bringing more value to our community.
