DIRECTOR'S LETTER

Spring in the Heber Valley is the perfect time to refresh, rejuvenate, and recommit to excellence in all that we do.  For this month’s lunch, we’ll be dusting off the clubs and golfing at Soldier Hollow, and we hope you’ll join us for this great networking golf event.

The past few months have been very successful.  The Heber Valley Chamber has wrapped up a targeted winter marketing campaign which culminated in last week’s restaurant week.  We are excited to announce that transient room tax collections increased by 26 % since 2017.  Likewise, local sales tax and restaurant tax collections saw large increases.  Much of this can be attributed to the outstanding work of our small businesses coupled with more visitor spending and a greater awareness for our residents to “keep it local.”  We look forward to continued success and outstanding partnerships within our community.

Happy swinging!
