The city of Bainbridge Island is seeking proposals for 2019 tourism projects.

Proposals must be for tourism marketing projects, marketing and operations of special events or festivals, the operation of eligible tourism-related facilities, or capital expenses for an eligible tourism-related facility.

The deadline for proposals is 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 12.

Proposals will be reviewed by the city’s Lodging Tax Advisory Committee and selected projects will be supported with funding from the city’s Civic Improvement Fund, which is devoted to new tourism promotion programs or to support or enhance existing programs.

For 2019, there is approximately $260,000 in Civic Improvement Funds available for projects.

Applicants may seek a minimum award of $2,000 and a maximum award of $130,000 (to reflect 50 percent of total available funds). Successful applicants will be required to enter into a professional services agreement with the city to provide the services or products outlined in their proposals.
