Growing tourism in a way that benefits the economy while also nurturing the environment and local community is essential to Oceanside’s on-going sustainability and health. To ensure this path forward, Visit Oceanside is collaborating with the City of Oceanside to develop a Sustainable Tourism Master Plan, which will provide a 10-year action plan for responsible tourism growth. The plan will identify an overarching vision as well as the steps for pursuing the experiences, infrastructure, product, and policies that will safeguard the long-term health of the destination and a high of quality of life for residents.
Plan recommendations will align with four pillars:
Expected to be completed by late 2023, the plan will be developed in phases. The first phase of the plan will include a sustainability assessment, destination assessment, competitive analysis, and stakeholder engagement in the form of an online survey, focus groups and town halls. All city stakeholders, including residents and business owners, are encouraged to participate and provide input.
Development of the Sustainable Master Plan is being guided by a steering committee comprised of community leaders from across Oceanside. Steering Committee List
