1.3 Overview

This report focuses on building a tourism industry in Crisfield, which will be addressed hereafter as the ‘CTI’ (Crisfield Tourism Industry).   This report and strategy primarily focuses on downtown Crisfield and will be identified as ‘Focus Area 1’ (shaded green), and even though it’s not included herein, this strategy does plan for economic activity spreading to uptown Crisfield and beyond.  There is a substantial amount of information that I’ve compiled that I wanted to include in this report, but I didn’t do so because it would’ve taken me approximately another year to 18 months to complete, and due to multiple factors I felt it best to release a summary report and strategy now.  

This document is comprised of three parts: 

Section 1 is a situation report.  

Section 2 is an economic revitalization strategic plan for Focus Area 1.  

Section 3 consists of information pertinent to rebuilding Crisfield in accordance with the CTI.  

A map of downtown Crisfield divided in what this report will identify as ‘Focus Areas.  

The eastern boundary for Focus Area 1 begins on 9th Street and entails all of the area westward to the Depot (green area).

This report will focus primarily on Focus Area 1.
