Downtown Data Collection Project To Begin
The Downtown Nassau Partnership (DNP) and the Bahamas National Geographic Information System Center (BNGISC) is scheduled to begin the Downtown Data Collection Project. This initiative, set to begin on September 20, seeks to create a single database of all businesses, services, buildings and stakeholders in the downtown community while providing information on the mix and make up of elements in the city.
“The information we seek to collect is the type of information that every city needs to have, in a format that will allow the DNP to communicate effectively with the downtown community and further drive the revitalization of Bay Street,” said Vaughn Roberts, Managing Director of the DNP. “We encourage all stakeholders to participate in this valuable exercise as the benefits will be long term.”
During a three week period, teams will go door-to-door and visit stakeholders between Nassau and Mackey Streets to facilitate in the collection process. This effort maintains the DNP’s commitment in fostering partnerships with both private company and public department to facilitate its goals.
The DNP is co-chaired by Tourism Director General Vernice Walkine and businessman Charles Klonaris. It is made up of an 11-member board representing a cross-section of senior government officials, businesspersons and professionals.
