New Web sites for the Craig Chamber of Commerce, Moffat County Tourism Association and Craig/Moffat Economic Development Partnership can be found at the following locations:
Three community groups have banded together to create joint Web sites in a bid to better collaborate and serve the community.
The Moffat County Tourism Association, Craig Chamber of Commerce and Craig/Moffat Economic Development Partnership launched their respective sites this month.
Each boasts considerable information for visitors and residents alike.
"Our sites are loaded with information for anyone interested in visiting, relocating to or starting a business in our community," said Darcy Trask, director of the Craig/Moffat Economic Development Partnership, in a news release issued Tuesday. "I am so pleased that we are able to offer a comprehensive site that offers a unified front to anyone interested in learning more about what Craig and Moffat County have to offer."
The EDP Web site includes information for prospective business owners and those who might want to expand an existing business, such as links to the city of Craig Building Department, Small Business Administration programs, sample business plans and various market analyses.
Michelle Balleck, MCTA director, said she thinks the new Web sites will create a better first impression for visitors and tourists, and help them plan unique trips to the region.
"Our new Web sites are truly an asset to potential visitors as they learn more about Moffat County and our abundance of outdoor recreation and historical sites," she said in the release. "The sites are easy to navigate, attractive to the eye and a wonderful first impression of our community."
The MCTA site has several links on its front page to activities such as sport fishing, tubing and motocross, as well as local attractions such as Dinosaur National Monument and the wild horses in Sand Wash Basin.
It also includes a list of local places to host conventions and meetings, and the group's event funding application.
The Chamber Web site has a section for local retail sales, a job search feature and links to weather and road conditions.
"The Chamber of Commerce was looking to revamp our site to be more visually appealing and user-friendly," Chamber Executive Director Christina Currie said in the release. "We thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to increase our cooperative efforts between ourselves and MCTA and EDP, and we think this project has been hugely successful for all three partners."
