Abstract

The Recreation, Tourism and Leisure (RTL) Committee formed in 1985 studied Welcome Center systems and their role in providing tourism information to the traveler. Their findings prompted the Legislature to enact House File 540, 1987 Iowa Acts (see Appendix B of this document), establishing state and privately sponsored pilot project welcome centers in the categories of interstate, primary highway, and communities with populations of 5,000 or under. To accomplish HF 540, $2 million was allocated. At least $60,000 of that amount was dedicated to the establishment of centers in communities with populations of 5,000 or less. The maximum amount available for match in that category was $20,000.
