White analyzed survey responses from more than 18,000 visi- tors from 84 park properties. OPRD conducted the surveys from 2011-2016. “We wanted to measure the eco- nomic benefits state parks bring to the state,” said OPRD Director Lisa Sumption. “The findings are clear, when state parks succeed, so do Oregon com- munities. We want to keep it that way, so we continue to look at what we can do to improve visitors’ experi- ences.” The report provides information by region and by park. Coastal parks had the greatest number of visits and slightly higher levels of average spend- ing, accounting for about half of the total statewide spending. Silver Falls State Park provided the largesteconomicboost,with1.4million visits contributing $58.4 million to the local economy. Fort Stevens State Park followed with $40.1 million, and Yaquina Bay State Recreation Site with $34.8 million. WCM A report released in December 2017, the Economic Activity from Recreation Use of Oregon State Park Properties, highlighted the $1.1 billion that Oregon state parks contributed to the state’s economy in 2016. Along with having a major financial impact, state parks also supported 16,000 full- and part-time jobs with a combined salary of $550 million, according to the Oregon Parks and Recreation D e p a r t m e n t (OPRD). “The report clearly shows that Oregon’s state parks are more than great places to visit, but also a vital economic engine for local economies across the state,” said OPRD Recreation Planner Terry Bergerson. Each dollar invested in the Oregon state park system generates $30.50 in related economic activity, according to the report. OPRD commissioned economist Eric White, a research social scientist with the USDA Forest Service Pacific NorthwestResearchStation,toprepare the report at a cost of $45,697 over a Terry Bergeson Lisa Sumption Winnebago Horizon Selected as RVBusiness ‘RV of the Year’ Forest City, Iowa-based Winnebago Industries Inc.’s new Horizon, a diesel Class A motorhome with a modernistic interior designed by the Iowa manufacturer’s in-house staff with input from Italian supplier Technoform S.p.A., was recently chosen by thestaffofRVBusinessmagazineasthe2018 RVBusiness RV of the Year. The 41- to 43-foot Horizon’s ultra-contem- poraryinteriorsfeaturehigh-glosslaminates, radius doors, plenty of stainless steel and backlit translucent panels — the kind of look that Winnebago President and CEO Mike Happesaidismorelikelyfound“inaManhat- tan condo or London flat.” It’s also a motif that, the RVB staff concluded, could well impact recreation vehicle product development down the road in coaches selling for considerably less than the $430,000 Horizon. The wall panels in the Horizon,builtonahybridMaxumchassisand a customized Freightliner platform mated to a 450-horsepower Cummins engine, contain storage compartments with soft close doors and easy-access, pull-out shelf systems, which project the look of a high-end European yacht. “Ithinkourdesignteam,ourproductman- agement leadership in the diesel category, wanted to create something with a more modern, more contemporary, more fresh in- terior within a high-end diesel luxury coach but in a way that gives the appearance that the coach is even more expensive than it is,” said Happe. “The journey on this product started several months ago with a team at Winnebago putting together the concept of what this could look like, the different mate- rialsthatwouldbeused,”headded.“Wehad a growing relationship with Technoform, an Italian cabinet supplier that has been very critical to this project. So, the vision behind this has been several years in the making. But the team was given the room to take its time and was empowered to bring to life something that was truly different than anything else on the market.” WCM Winnebago’s President and CEO Mike Happe inside the Horizon.
