City Of Kimberley Launches Survey To Establish Business Priorities

January 15, 2019

The City of Kimberley has officially launched a new Business Retention & Expansion (BR & E) survey.  The City wants to better understand the future plans and needs of local businesses and how business owners/managers view the Kimberley as a place to do business. The information from the survey will be used to plan future economic development activities focused on the top priorities of local businesses.

The City of Kimberley has retained MDB Insight, an economic development consulting firm to assist with the project. MDB Insight will be working with Manager of Economic Development to review the completed surveys for challenges and opportunities that the local business community is facing. Businesses are encouraged to participate in the telephone survey and since selection is random, they may be contacted between January 16th and February 4th. The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.

According to Schaun Goodeve, the Manager of Economic Development with the City of Kimberley. “Supporting our local business community is my top priority. This project continues in our efforts to gather critical information that will be of value to local businesses and new investors.”

The project is scheduled to last until February when all the results of the survey are gathered and analyzed.
