Tourism Advisory Committee presents survey results

Posted: Updated:

It was a packed house Tuesday night at the city-appointed Tourism Advisory Committee's public meeting. The committee has spent the last year studying potential issues within the tourism industry.

They presented their findings from an online survey with the purpose of getting feedback from the community.

"Well, definitely over saturation is occurring right now. We have many tour companies that are here from trolleys to carriages to Segways to whatever. Many of these come through my neighborhood for example and cause a lot of noise pollution. These is an issue of making it look like Disney World and we don't want to do that," said Toni Harrington, Savannah.

The committee will take their proposals to the mayor and city council on Jan. 24.
