Attorney Julie Waldman was recently appointed by unanimous vote of the Alachua County Commission to the Original Florida Tourism Task Force. Formed in 1993, the Original Florida Tourism Task Force, now known as Visit Natural North Florida, is a governmental entity formed through an inter-local agreement among county governments to promote tourism in north central Florida. The region encompasses Florida’s Big Bend coastal area, spanning Wakulla County in the west, down to Cedar Key/Levy County in the south, east to Gainesville, and north to the Florida-Georgia state line. The Task Force is a founding partner of the official tourism marketing organization for the state, VISIT FLORIDA.
The mission of Visit Natural North Florida is to promote the natural, historic and cultural attractions of the area in order to increase the number of visitors and to extend their stay. The goal of the organization is to enhance the economy, image and quality of life of the area through expanded revenues and employment opportunities. At the same time, Visit Natural North Florida encourages the preservation of the resources which bring focus to the area.
