McMinnville officials are considering making the entire city an Adventure Tourism District after hearing from state Rep. Judd Matheny in October about the benefits. Discussing the measure were Finance Committee members Ken Smith, chairman, Ben Newman and Mike Neal. Newman, a licensed attorney, says he read through the Adventure Tourism Act of 2011 and cannot find any reason not to move forward and make the city’s boundaries an Adventure Tourism District.“It’s a good decision,” Newman said.
