Gov. Inslee approves $150,000 to promote Darrington tourism

Gov. Jay Inslee has approved a Snohomish County request for $150,000 to market and promote Darrington and Stillaguamish Valley tourism, Snohomish County announced today.

Inslee approved the Snohomish County Office of Economic Development’s request for $150,000 to promote the areas and help mitigate the economic losses resulting from the Oso mudslide.

The Office of Economic Development plans to invest in park improvements, trailhead signs and route markers and promote tourism in the region through a multimedia advertising campaign.

The funding will allow Snohomish County to promote the area’s outdoor-recreation opportunities and summer festivals, Executive Director Gary Haakenson said in a news release.

The county is partnering with Economic Alliance Snohomish County to request qualified applicants for the tourism promotion effort. Marketing efforts are expected to begin in early June.
