Tourism Promotion Committee

Committee Overview

The Silverton Tourism Promotion Committee (TPC) is an appointed committee of the City of Silverton, formed in 2008.

The TPC meets as needed, to review and provide recommendations to the City Council regarding grant applications promoting tourism in Silverton. The grant funds come from a percentage of the Transient Occupancy Tax the City receives according to City ordinance and state statute. 

The TPC is made up of eight (8) seats, consisting of one representative from the following entities: a Silverton Mural Society Board Member; Homer Davenport Community Festival Board Member; Silverton Chamber of Commerce Board Member; Silverton Fine Arts Association Board Member; Bed & Breakfast Owner/Operator; Hotel Owner/Operator; a City Council Member; and an At-Large Appointee. Appointed members serve for a three-year term.


The committee typically meets in the spring and fall to review grant applications.
