The city has many underutilized assets and its appeal as a destination is only as good as our ability to promote it. With this in mind, I’m inviting key stakeholders, including city officials, hoteliers, restaurateurs and winery owners, to come together in 2017 in support of a tourism business improvement district.” GILROY • MORGAN HILL • SAN MARTIN JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2017 25
