The Ashtabula Tourism Commission Board is very busy in Ashtabula.  The ATCB was formed in 1979 to help bring money in and help boost the local economy but the economy wouldn't feel any impact from the Board until 1987.  In 1984 the TCB went on a massive campaign to intensify the cities lack luster look and feel.  When Beautification 84 finally was launched,  many local businesses pitched in and the end result was a beautiful city.

2.1--A beautiful, state of the art convention center was constructed in 1991. The

Tuscan    Convention   Center   was  built  to  impress  and to bring the big shot

companies  into  Ashtabula.

2.2--Built  on  the  banks  of  the  mighty  Tuscan River,  TCC  features two all glass, 

triangular   shaped  pillars  that  reach  up  high into  the sky.   As you walk the stairs

to the top you will have a great view of the Tuscan river.

2.3--The  ATCB started a "Build the Sign" campaign 4 years ago.  The

sign was funded by donations from area residents.  The thought was

to have something that was easy to see and recognize.  The city name

was chosen and a "Hollywoodland" type sign was erected.

2.4--Just north of the Tuscan River sits Germaine Fashion Mall.  A "mega-mall with

over  90 stores,  35 eateries and even a day care for the mommies.  To the north of

the  mall  is  Tuscan  Avenue  with the Tram in the middle.  The Tram also makes a

few stops to the west of the mall.

2.5--These 2 obelisks sit on Tuscan Avenue and Germaine Avenue.  There are several

in the city and each is a marker for a founding father.  There are 6 spread out through

Ashtabula.  These two are for Emmitt Ervin and Jonathon Cauvel.
