Skagway Economic Baseline Report
Skagway Development Corporation contracted with McKinley Research Group to develop an economic baseline report and a five-year economic development plan. This document is the economic baseline report and is intended to serve as a foundation for development of the strategic plan, to provide a set of metrics against which to measure future progress and trends, and to inform program and policy development.
The final study conducted by Rain Coast Data consisted of a Cost Benefit Analysis to understand the self- sustainability of a Creator Space in Skagway. This analysis runs through costs and revenue for the space as well as the ROI for three different start-up scenarios.
Following the initial interviews with local creators, a community-wide survey was conducted to get a broader understanding of community needs and user potential. We heard from 158 Skagway residents providing key information on location preference and desired services.
Skagway has always been home to a community of creative artists and manufacturers. To support the growth of these businesses and this industry, SDC-CDS has begun to study the potential for a creator space. Part 1 explores potential use and feedback from local creators.
