“Kingston is open for business and is committed to expanding the tax base through intensification for greater economic resiliency,” the City of Kingston’s Strategic Plan notes in its Enabling Economic Development Council priority. During its term, City Council is building on that commitment and enhancing service by streamlining the development process.
The development of building projects involves the City at certain key points, including: pre-consultation, official plan and bylaw amendments, heritage applications, division of land, building permits, and building and occupancy inspections. It is a process that seeks balance between development and community interests with the necessity of respecting legislative requirements, bylaws and standards, and improving our local quality of life.
