The purpose of Visit Fort Bragg, CA (Formerly the Fort Bragg Promotion Committee) is to manage a continuing and sustainable program of advertising and promotional activities that publicize the advantages of Fort Bragg for recreation and business.  Specific goals are to:

  • Increase Transient Occupancy Tax revenues.
  • Increase Sales Tax revenues.
  • Enhance the image of Fort Bragg as a vibrant community and desirable destination.
  • Attract Coast residents to Fort Bragg for business, cultural and social activities.
  • Keep the community informed about Visit Fort Bragg activities and programs.  Visit Fort Bragg activities must benefit City businesses regardless of Chamber membership.

The Mendocino Coast Chamber of Commerce is contracted by the City of Fort Bragg to manage funds and oversee Visit Fort Bragg, a volunteer committee comprised of five to seven members. The Committee’s purpose is to promote Fort Bragg as a travel and retail destination. A portion of the City’s transient occupancy tax (TOT) is allocated to the Committee to be used for Fort Bragg promotion activities.

Visit Fort Bragg is charged with the task of creating a strategic marketing plan as well as managing the budget. This Committee has representation from a cross- section of businesses and community members who meet at least once a month in an informal setting. The regular meetings are currently held the third Wednesday of the month from 3pm-5pm in the Mendocino Coast Chamber of Commerce conference room at 217 S. Main St., Fort Bragg.

Membership is open to the business and community members who have an interest in promoting Fort Bragg. Members do not have to live within the City limits.

The scope of work consists of:
o Attend committee meetings once a month
o Assist with committee work and projects as needed or available

  1. You should put on your website how to GET to Fort Bragg! I am considering a visit but I am having a hard time finding out if there is any public transportation (train, bus) to Ft Bragg and where is the nearest airport. Apparently the only way I can get there is to drive?

    1. Hi Mariah,

      There is a bus (Mendocino Transit Authority) that runs from Santa Rosa to Fort Bragg or vice versa. The nearest airport is also Santa Rosa, but it’s fairly small so Oakland or San Francisco would be the next best bet. The only thing about flying into Oakland or SF is that you would need an alternate form of transportation to get to Santa Rosa, and then hop on the bus that runs to Fort Bragg. Here is the website for Mendocino Transit http://mendocinotransit.org to see their schedule. http://www.sonomacountyairport.org is the website for the airport in Santa Rosa. Don’t hesitate to e-mail chamber@mcn.org for any other questions you have.

      Casey
