KEDCO survey launched on City website
November 5, 2015 –
An online survey seeking community feedback on local economic development efforts is now open on the City of Kingston website. The survey will be open for three weeks and survey results will be provided to the Kingston Economic Development Corporation (KEDCO) review committee to inform their work in the formal review process.
"This survey aims to capture public feedback on current economic development efforts as well as thoughts on key services and areas of focus moving forward, together clarifying community expectations leading into the work of the KEDCO review committee," says Mayor Bryan Paterson. "This survey is for anyone with an interest in economic development and the future direction of our community efforts. I encourage all Kingstonians to provide their feedback and ideas by participating in the online survey."
The survey opened today and will run for three weeks, closing at midnight on Wednesday, Nov. 25. For more information on the KEDCO review process, and to complete the online survey, please visit www.CityofKingston.ca/KEDCOReview. Survey participants have the option to be entered into a draw for a Microsoft Surface tablet.
Community participation in the survey will provide the KEDCO review committee with valuable insight and a frame of reference to direct their work. The committee is tasked with exploring options and best practices to structure local economic development activities to contribute to the goal of advancing a smart and liveable 21st century city.
The expertise of Brock Dickinson, the external economic development expert retained to assist in the KEDCO review process, and his team at MDB Insight was enlisted to design the survey. MDB Insight is a leading Canadian management consulting firm specializing in economic development with professional experience in survey design and data management.
