This is a fabricated article by the news journal. Let's have more advertising on the billboards that we -who is we?] don't like and complain to county commission who keeps out advertising that they should fix this idea even though we don't like it. Convoluted logic by the News Journal. To send a message.

I always thought that the Chamber should be at an exit as well a as real visitor center. Why hide the Chamber where no one can find it? If people need a room, a visitor center can help keep the people in the area. Take the old Corvette Museum/Bowling Alley and turn it into something useful.

A personal topic as been posted titled The Prostitution of Bed Tax. Your point is well taken.

The Harley Davidson business on route 1 could disappear.. and two simple words for advertising can be used to promote the right ideas. Destination- Daytona as a slogan.

Advertising that is simple & effective. Don't advertise the beach it's the counties most valuable asset. Don't advertise anything that will sell itself. The advertising costs for Disney World are minimized by building a reputation. Reputation is the best advertising. It can bring people in for the first time, and diminish the number of people who have not been there by relying on repeat business. Anyone returning to Daytona in terms of visitors arriving will be easier to control. The privacy issue for residents is separated by the mainland- with rights to that privacy and areas of the beachside that exclude any ideas of tourism. It becomes a choice of how much privacy is needed. The collateral damage is in allowing for the beach to become advertised as an off road idea and using the idea that this is what everybody wants. The problem with that is that everybody who mentions that its what they want don't get to vote on it. When they vote it isn't counted- if they don't vote it's because they give up on the idea that anything will change. That's NOT an outsiders opinion tell the residents that they are wrong. It's the advertising telling people that they will be told what to think! Even a small amount of advertising is not good enough- the damage is in over th top ideas that won't happen.
