KWBA is the non-profit (501c6) business alliance of downtown business and property owners. KWBA represents and promotes the area’s businesses and their interests, produces events, and manages the marketing and public relations for the district.
KWBA was founded as The Rondout Business Association, a (501c6) nonprofit, in 1994 and has always been dedicated to the promotion and expansion of businesses in Downtown Kingston’s Waterfront district. KWBA is a membership organization governed by a Board of Directors.
We continue to envision the neighborhood growing into an even livelier destination and a more established cultural hub. Soon, downtown Kingston will also be home to a portion of the Kingston Greenline, a network of linear parks and complete streets that will enhance our urban landscape and allow more people to connect with our neighborhood’s heritage. Downtown Kingston is also in the midst of a revitalization plan for the 180 acres of the Waterfront, fueled by the help of a hefty grant from the NY Department of State.
We are honored to work with a dynamic group of businesses, property owners and partners, and look forward to seeing what we will accomplish together in the coming year.
