The Harlan County Outdoor Recreation Board Authority was created by the Harlan County Fiscal Court per KRS 97.030 in 2005 to develop and promote outdoor recreation and tourism opportunities for everyone to enjoy. The five-person board meets monthly to take actions on issues facing the county's current future adventure tourism endeavors. The board has a number of employees which help manage its current assets and develop new ones, and also works with numerous committees and local clubs who share an interest in adventure tourism.
The Harlan County Outdoor Recreation Board Authority is a 501c4 non-profit organization.
The mission of the Harlan County Outdoor Recreation Board is to promote and develop outdoor recreation and/or adventure tourism throughout Harlan County in the best long-term interests of the people and those resources. This will be done with a systematic approach to developing marketable outdoor adventure tourism products in a clearly defined and uncompromised leadership role that will help the economic viability of the County and its residents.
