Tourism Local Option Tax up for Renewal

McCall City Source

In May 2018, the Tourism LOT is up for renewal. Tell City Council what changes should be made as we move into the future?


Take the Resort Tourism Survey>

What is the Tourism Local Option Tax?

Idaho Code allows for an occupancy tax upon hotel, motel, and other sleeping accommodations rented or leased for a period of thirty (30) days or less. The voters of the City of McCall voted to approve an ordinance that provided that the City of McCall has met the requirements set out in Idaho Code. In McCall, voters approved a 3 percent local option tax on lodging in 2005 and renewed it in 2011.

Local Option Tax Renewal

The current Tourism LOT expires as of December 31, 2018. The Council will conduct reviews of the public to determine if a renewal ordinance will be developed and if so what items would be considered for funding

Call to Artists – A Public Art Opportunity

Seeking qualified artists or arts educator-fabricator teams
to create public art for the newly re-built Lardo Bridge
at the outlet of beautiful Payette Lake.

Bridging the Source: Arts and Payette Lake

The City of McCall, Idaho, in partnership with the McCall Arts and Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, is seeking qualified artists or arts educator-fabricator teams to create public art for the newly re-built Lardo Bridge at the outlet of beautiful Payette Lake. The artist(s) will engage the McCall community in an arts-based design process that responds to the lake’s role as primary drinking water source, core of McCall’s tourism economy, and the lake’s ecologic health. The project budget is $50,000. Applications are due October 27, 2017. More information and application instructions can be found at: http://www.mccall.id.us/commitees/PAAC.html

New Aviation Themed Pocket Park

Airport enthusiasts of all ages will be
able to listen to McCall Airport communications.

The City of McCall would like to thank the Idaho Aviation Association for their support and sponsorship of a new aviation themed pocket park.  Located off the pathway as it passes the west side of the airport, the new park is intended to allow visitors to observe aircraft and listen in on their communications as they sequence themselves into and out of McCall.

The park will grow in phases with a fence relocation that is under way and the addition of benches for seating.  Spring will see a scanner and interpretive signage added to allow visitors to know whether there are inbound traffic and assist in locating them as they enter the traffic pattern. With more than 100 planes in and out per day during McCall summers traffic patterns will surely be fun to monitor.

Our hope is to provide a safe and informative location for aviation enthusiasts to watch the diverse array of aircraft that use our airport.  If the park creates additional aviation enthusiasts, that’s even better!

Future phases of the park will depend on additional donations and volunteer labor.  Potential enhancements are raised viewing platform, additional viewing locations and aircraft displays. If you are interested, please contact Jay Scherer, Airport Manager at (208) 634-8965.

Aviation pocket parks in McCall hope to be a catalyst to interest in aviation and motivate youth and community involvement in our amazing airport operations.

Special thanks to:
