Peninsula: Tourism tracking devices being installed

Various tourism locations in Clallam, Jefferson and Kitsap counties are receiving computerized survey boxes this week that are paid for by the state Business and Tourism Development Office.

The survey boxes will provide officials with a snapshot of tourism on the North Olympic Peninsula. The survey will cost about $7,000 and continue through mid-November.

According to James Lillstrom, owner of Boulder, Colo.-based James Lillstrom & Associates, tourists interested in Peninsula attractions will be asked questions about their travel.

The questions take about five minutes to answer on the Point-of-View Survey System, which compiles the information for statistical analysis.

“This is a baseline survey that will provide a customer profile with a heavy focus on visitor origin,” Lillstrom said. “It will provide information about what people think about the area.”

Lillstrom said survey results should be available to local agencies by the end of the year.

About 35 volunteers helped hang ornaments, candy canes and banners.
