Video tour highlights Douglas County

Staff Reports

A new video tour book highlighting Douglas County is now available on the county website. The video features topics such as education, quality of life, economic vitality, health and living, tourism and law enforcement.

"These short videos provide a glimpse into what makes Douglas County not only a great place to live but also an exciting place to visit," said Public Information Officer Melissa Blosser. "From our quality of life, tourism, economic vitality and public safety, Douglas County is full of places to experience, trails to hike and recreation to enjoy."

In August of 2016, CGI Communications approached the county with an offer to produce the video tour book at no charge; advertising revenue from local businesses covered the production costs of the videos – tax funds were not used. Scripts for the videos were produced by the county, and in August, a videographer spent three days capturing footage throughout the county.

"This was a great opportunity for the county, and we thank the local businesses that worked with CGI on this project," said Blosser. The county encourages the public to view the videos and to share them on their social media platforms and websites.
