Walks and Workshop to Help Shape Growth in Central Kingston

in Releases by

The City of Kingston is inviting members of the central Kingston community to join its upcoming neighbourhood walks and an urban design workshop taking place in June:

Live in central Kingston?  Interested in the future growth of our city? Join us for one of our neighbourhood walks running June 13 to 18 and an urban design workshop on June 28 to share your experiences as we gather background information for the area-specific urban design guidelines as part of the Central Kingston Growth Strategy.

During the neighbourhood walks the City will gather information from participants about the character and key elements of the neighbourhoods within the Central Kingston Growth Strategy study area. Come tell us how you live, see and experience these areas. There are four walks scheduled (see details below), or residents can complete self-guided walks using the maps and feedback forms available at CityofKingston.ca/CKstrategy.

Residents are also invited to participate in an interactive workshop on June 28 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall, City Hall. The urban design workshop will seek feedback on study areas that may be appropriate for intensification – and on the scale and form of intensification. Participants will also be asked to identify compatibility principles (such as building height, setbacks from the street, setbacks between properties, landscaping, etc.) to be incorporated into the Strategy’s framework to guide infill and intensification in the central Kingston.
