Branson/Lakes Area Tourism Community Enhancement District

The Branson/Lakes Area Tourism Community Enhancement District (BLATCED or Tourism District) is a special district established under Missouri State Law. Our purpose is to promote tourism to the area, primarily by collecting and administering a sales tax used for destination marketing efforts that attract visitors to our region. Reference: RSMO Sec 67.1950-67.1979

The Tourism District’s geographic boundaries unite the tourism community across county lines to include the City of Branson, the Village of Indian Point and tourism-oriented portions of Taney and Stone Counties, including Silver Dollar City. Click here to view a map of the BLATCED.

Additional information about the leadership, administration and implementation of the BLATCED is available on this website or by contacting our office. Thank you for your interest. We also welcome your attendance at any of our meetings, which are posted per State of Missouri Sunshine Laws and are always open to the public.
