Trigg Tourism Hears Sign Concerns

The Trigg County Tourism Commission Board heard a concern from a downtown merchant about lost business during its regular meeting on Thursday. Karla White of Cherokee Antique Mall says she's spoken to other shop owners, and the abrupt decline in business coincides with a new billboard on I-24.

The new sign replaces one that was worn and out-dated, but White says she and other merchants feel the new sign would attract more attention if it was more colorful. Tourism Director Bill Stevens invited the merchants to submit ideas for possible changes. In other business, Stevens says the Cadiz and Trigg County area will be advertised in the new Ft. Campbell Base Map.

Stevens says the Ft. Campbell-Clarksville area is a valuable market for tourism in Trigg County. Stevens says he is also working with the American Bass Anglers Association to create a series of fishing tournaments at Lake Barkley and Prizer Point Marinas.
