Tourism to produce new Logan County map

Not all people use a GPS to find their way around. There are a large number of people who still utilize maps to get to where they are going. Because of this, the Logan County Tourist & Convention Commission has partnered with Town Square Publications to produce a new Logan County Map.

It has been 16 years since the last Logan County Map was produced. A lot of changes have been made in Logan County over the past decade and a half and Logan County has grown since then.

The new map will include things such as the railroad tracks and a complete bypass just to name a few.

“We have people come by our office weekly asking for Logan County maps. We are excited about the opportunity to produce a publication that will help locals and visitors alike,” said Dee Dee Brown, Office Manager of Logan County Tourism.

Logan County attracts tourist who are not familiar with the community, and the maps are located in many areas and offered for free to those who want one.

“This is yet another tool that can be used for economic development,” said Judge Executive Logan Chick. “I know that it’s hard for me to keep the maps at my office. Seems like they are always disappearing after we put them out. I think it’s a good idea to stay current. Not everyone uses technology to find where they want to go.

The Logan County Fiscal Court recently approved to spend $1,000 to help produce the new map by way of advertising in the map. If you are a business and want to advertise in the map, you can call the Logan County Tourism office at 270-726-1678 for more information.

“Some people believe that GPS have taken over and that maps are obsolete. Although it is a fact that many people have access to GPS, maps are still in demand and should be made available to the public,” said Janie Gregory, Chairman of Logan County Tourism.

Maps will be distributed to local businesses and surrounding county businesses as well. Map advertisement sales are coming to a close. Maps should be available by August 2016.
