Torrance : Visitors Bureau Approved

July 16, 1987

The City Council this week unanimously approved the creation of the Torrance Visitors Bureau to attract tourists, business travelers and conferences to the city's booming but overbuilt hotel facilities.

The council decided in April that the city should respond to competition in the hotel industry along a coastal crescent from Long Beach to the Los Angeles International Airport by promoting the city's hotels.

The bureau, which will be run as a semi-independent division of the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce, will receive $87,500 from the city in the 1987-88 fiscal year. It will be governed by a seven-member board consisting of three members appointed by the City Council, three members appointed by the chamber and a chamber vice president, who will be chairman.
