To realize KRVR’s mission of facilitating the social, natural, and financial health of the Kern River Valley for this and future generations, KRVR occasionally writes a letter of support or to request a meeting or offer assistance for KRV projects and issues. Below are a few of those letters for your information.
In February of 2002, a diverse group of committed Kern River Valley residents organized by Kern River Valley Revitalization, Inc. (KRVR), contracted with an innovative planning team to prepare a Tourism Marketing Plan. The consultants, Bob Garrison of Nature Tourism Planning, and Diane Strachan of Inside-Outside Associates, joined with the KRVR committee to become the Tourism Marketing Steering Committee. Out of this committee evolved a unique approach to rural tourism marketing and planning for the KRV; The Community-inspired Tourism Marketing Plan Project. Funding for the project came from a $25,000 USDA Forest Service grant awarded to KRVR.
