TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima County has invested in tourism promotion to help stimulate the county's Economic Development Plan.

The Pima County Board of Supervisors approved funding of nearly $3.3 million for Pima County tourism in a 4-0 vote Tuesday.

Visit Tucson's marketing plan for the Fiscal Year 2013 to 2014 is designed to promote tourism, business travel, film production and sports development, according to a news release.

Current projects are under way to support Pima County attractions, including the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Old Tucson Studios, the Pima Air and Space Museum and the Titan Missile Museum.

Visit Tucson plans to invest $20,000 this fiscal year to support local geo-tourism and create a regional incentive program to attract feature films, television series and commercials.

"Revitalizing tourism is directly related to our economic well-being and we have backed that conviction up with public funding," Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry said.
