4/28/2017 - North Lamar Contact Team's contribution to the City of Austin's discussion on How Can We Make Tourism Help Our City the Most?
Hotel Occupancy Taxes (HOT) must be spent to benefit the areas of the city, sectors of the economy, and workers who generate them. Not all hotel stays are related to downtown, SXSW, or the convention center. People come to Austin for business, or to visit family or friends. Outside of downtown, there are several clusters of business-class hotels and of motels designed for budget travellers. These areas must be served by the HOT revenue, including developing related businesses such as restaurants, and providing transportation and safety features particularly considering visitors, who may be unfamiliar with the surroundings. As well, HOT should be used for workforce and small business development, providing a route for experienced staff and contractors to build their skills and businesses, and increase their income. This is particularly important for the multilingual service sector workforce, to expand Austin's attractiveness to global travellers.
The Visitor Impact Task Force will make recommendations to the City Council about how to best utilize all hotel occupancy revenue to impact tourism by May 31, 2017.
