Kimberley Councillor Don McCormick reported last week that a new Downtown Business Association has been formed, a result of a meeting held April 2.
On April 2nd, over 100 people representing downtown businesses and building owners, city of Kimberley representatives, Kimberley & District Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Kimberley and local stakeholders attended a special meeting and presentation regarding economic and retail issues and strategies.
The need for a Business Association was recognized at that meeting.
McCormick said 10 people have signed up to sit on the committee with Schaun Goodeve from the Chamber as Chair.
“There is lots of enthusiasm,” McCormick said.
