CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Plans for the future of the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority were outlined Monday night.

CEO Tom Murray presented his ideas on reorganizing the CRVA to Charlotte City Council.

According to NewsChannel 36 partner The Charlotte Observer, Murray says one of his top priorities is convincing people to visit the NASCAR Hall of Fame.  The hall of fame lost $1.4 million in its first year.

Problems at the Hall of Fame, and other money issues, have prompted calls for change.

Murray told the council he reorganized upper management.

On Friday former CEO Tim Newman left the organization less than a year after he was replaced as the CEO.  In July of 2011 he was reassigned to a new job as a senior executive in charge of business development, sales and marketing.

The CRVA was created in 2004.
