Based on a public tender announced in June this year, the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board signed a contract and ordered scientific expert material from the Institute for Tourism, which will answer questions about what is enough in the county’s tourism and infrastructure, where they are in the red and how much space there is. for growth.The aim of the study is to define the total load accommodation capacity for each of the six clusters in the county, according to the Institute for Tourism, which will calculate the carrying capacity of the Split Riviera and especially the city of Split, Makarska Riviera, Dalmatian Zagora and the islands of Brac, Hvar and Vis.Based on the analysis of current accommodation capacities, possibilities of reception and arrangement of beaches, traffic and communal infrastructure and natural and cultural resources, it will be found out how many nights and arrivals of tourists can be in the county during the year, especially in the “peak” season in July and August. , without endangering the sustainable development and quality of life of the local community. “It is also necessary to determine the maximum number of accommodation capacities in certain parts of the county with regard to its spatial specifics. We expect the Study to say for each of the tourist clusters of our county what are the tourist figures that this area can withstand, without compromising the balance in the supply of electricity, water and energy and not spatially endangering the area with excessive construction and significantly disrupting quality of life. local population.These are logical questions after years of great growth in popularity and tourist arrivals in our county. All this will be the basis for the work of destination management that will manage the development of tourism in the county. ” points out Joško Stella, director of the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist BoardThe study of the carrying capacity of tourism in the Split-Dalmatia County, prepared by scientists from the Institute of Tourism in Zagreb, should be completed by the spring of 2018. This is the only such example, at least known to me in Croatia, that one tourist destination started by making a study. The preparation of the study should have been the basis for development, not first to build accommodation capacities, and then to do the study. But again, better than ever, there are still things that can be corrected and directed to the right path of sustainable and strategic development.All the problems that are present in the tourism sector are the result of the elements and not strategic development. This is great news for our tourism, especially the Split-Dalmatia County, and I sincerely hope that other tourist destinations will follow this positive example because the strategic development of a tourist destination is the only right path for long-term tourism development.Record tourist results in Split-Dalmatia County According to its results and excellent tourist traffic in August, the Split-Dalmatia County remained at the very top of the country’s tourist regions.

Makarska had 1.284.076 overnight stays, which is 13 percent more than last year, which placed the two cities among Croatia’s Top 20 tourist destinations. “All the announcements say that the excellent visit will continue during October, so Central Dalmatia is becoming a prime example of the extension of the tourist season in all parts of the county.Stella points out.Split Airport also recorded excellent results, with 2.123.209 passengers so far, which is 24 percent more than last year and thus became the first airport in terms of traffic in Croatia.

Meds cafe in Rogers City has been open for medical sales since last April, but now they’re offering recreational products right here in northeast Michigan.Owner of Meds Cafe, Scott Schroeder, says the number of recreational users is already surpassing that of medical sales.“For rec patients to med patients, it’s probably about two thirds, one third right now, for the rec patients.”And that’s after only two full days of selling recreational products. Meds Cafe received their rec license on December 27, but just started to make sales this Tuesday. Since then, traffic has nearly doubled, and Schroeder says he anticipates the store will just keep getting busier.Previously, patients were driving hours to larger cities like Ann Arbor to purchase products legally. Now, local access is just one of many reasons the provisioning center is receiving such a great response from community members.“They’re very happy. They’re [saying] ‘long time coming, thank you.’ We hear a lot of that. And it’s, ‘I’m glad I don’t have to drive so far.’”The business is expected to increase economic growth in the area as well. Schroeder says,“Since we’ve rolled into rec, we’ve hired two new employees and probably two more on deck, as time goes by. We added a register. As for revenue streams, for us it’s definitely obviously picked up.”He’s also been notified by the state that Presque Isle county has now become eligible for more grants because of the new license. And he says he doesn’t plan to limit growth to just that area.“Early February we’re hoping Lowell, and probably late February, March for Manistee.”All you need to be able legally to purchase recreational marijuana at Meds Cafe is a valid I.D.
