City Seeks Input on Bench Rest Area Locations for New Sidewalks

Published on: 2019/02/05 - in News

The City of Kingston is seeking public opinion on where it could install bench rest areas along new sidewalks it will be installing this year.

Potential rest areas can be suggested for the new sidewalks being installed on Bath Road, from Coverdale east to the existing sidewalk; Birchwood Drive, from Peachwood to Cataraqui Woods Drive; and on Taylor Kidd Boulevard, between Waterloo and Princess.

Learn more and provide your input at this City ‘Get Involved’ page between now and 4:30pm on Monday, February 18.

According to a City release: These new sidewalks were identified as priorities in the Active Transportation Master Plan (ATMP) as they will fill in gaps in the City’s sidewalk network. The ATMP, a.k.a. Walk’n’Roll Kingston, is a comprehensive plan to increase active – human-powered – travel options and improve accessibility.
