Frontenac CFDC asks businesses to participate in telephone survey
The Frontenac Community Futures Development Corporation (CFDC) is assessing the demand for commercial, office, retail, and light industrial space within the County of Frontenac. This initiative is being undertaken in response to community consultations that were held as part of the organization’s strategic plan review.
One of the areas identified by the community as being pivotal to achieve long-term economic growth is the availability of commercial/light industrial space. The Frontenac CFDC is taking an active leadership role to increase the supply of commercial/industrial space available and is commissioning a study to identify businesses that are considering relocation or expansion in the area.
In assessing this demand, Frontenac CFDC is reaching out to clients and contacts in the county as well as neighbouring jurisdictions such as Kingston and Napanee to conduct a short telephone survey aimed at identifying interest in locating to new office space in Frontenac County.
The survey should not take more than 5 minutes to complete and will request information related to potential new investment, relocation or expansion in the area. The focus will be on those businesses that currently have small office-oriented, light industrial or home based businesses in the area. Frontenac CFDC has contracted Millier Dickinson Blais to conduct this study. Beginning on July 16, Millier Dickinson Blais Inc. will be contacting businesses located in Frontenac County and adjacent jurisdictions. Our goal is to reach at least 70-90 business owners.
It is important that we reach out to home-based businesses that might be considering expansion into an external facility. If you or someone you are aware of is considering expansion or relocation to Frontenac County please contact Court Ellingson at Millier Dickinson Blais directly at 1-855-367-3535 x 261 (before August 15, 2012) or you may complete an online survey by visiting https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/8SFSLKB
