Research

Downtown Kingston! has a number of reports that we make available to our members, new businesses thinking of locating in the downtown, as well as the general public. Please feel free to take a look at what we have online and do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to see the full reports or would like further information.

Pedestrian Counts

Annual pedestrian counts are taken at 10 locations in the downtown for a 2 week period each summer. Please click on the links below to download the latest documents.

Land Use Inventory

This document looks at both the amount of square footage per category and the total square footage of land in the downtown core. They give a great indication of the overall use of the downtown and we use them to track everything from growth per square foot per category to vacancy rates.

Sudden Impact

We developed this document to monitor our off-audit activity - how we leverage our annual budget through partnerships, sponsorships and community involvement into more than $3.5 million in annual spending.
