About | Who We Are

The Mission of the Person County Tourism Development Authority is to promote the growth of responsible tourism through marketing strategies and programs that balance economic growth with the need to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of the Roxboro and Person County area.

Our office is located at 705 Durham Road in Roxboro. Our mailing address is PO Box 1775.

The Person County TDA was formed in 1997 by NC House Bill 859 under General Statutes G.S. 153A–155 and operates under the Local Government Budget and Fiscal Control Act. The TDA is managed by a Board of six Directors; three appointed by the Person County Commissioners and three appointed by the Roxboro City Council. Each body chooses one hotel/motel/inn owner or manager as one of the three appointees. The other two must actively promote travel and tourism in the area. After 2001, the Authority shall use at least two-thirds of the funds to promote travel and tourism and shall use the remainder for tourism-related expenditures.  Special monetary grants may be awarded to organizations that sponsor events that are tourism related and/or the event encourages people to stay overnight in our area accommodations.

The Person County TDA meetings are generally held the 1st Wednesday of each month at 12 Noon in the Conference Room of the TDA Office. Meeting announcements are published in the Courier-Times one week prior to a meeting.
