Published on: 2019/03/26 - in Releases

RELEASE — The City of Kingston is undertaking an evaluation of public engagement efforts and wants to hear from residents. It will invite input on the Public Engagement Framework, Get Involved Kingston – both have been in place since October 2017 – and the overall in-person and online public engagement experience.

“We want to find any gaps, challenges and opportunities that exist with public engagement, which is aimed at facilitating more informed and inclusive municipal decision making. Tell us about your experience with public engagement and any ideas you have,” says Debbi Miller, manager, communications and public engagement.

Complete the online survey at by April 15 or offer your input in person at one of the following two focus groups. Register by emailing with your preferred time:

  • Tuesday, April 9 – 6:30-8 p.m. at the INVISTA Centre
  • Tuesday, April 16 3-4:30 p.m. at the Central Branch of the Kingston Frontenac Public Library

Over the course of the coming weeks, the City will review existing public engagement policies, practices, and initiatives and make adaptions based on input received.
