Housing Shortage is Subject of Upcoming Open Houses

Published on: 2019/05/27 - in News

Kingston residents have been invited to meet with the Mayor’s Task Force on Housing members to hear about their plan to analyze and address the shortage of housing in the city.

Two open houses are available to attend, each providing details about the current housing situation in Kingston and see the plans and processes involved to move this project forward. Attendees will also have the opportunity to speak with members of the task force and provide input on the project.

“We are so proud of the work that has been done by the task force since its inception,” said Mary Rita Holland, task force co-chair and city councillor. “As we prepare to engage with residents on this very important topic we want to ensure they have the opportunity to get up to speed with what the task force has learned to date and has awareness of steps moving forward.”

The first open house will take place from 2pm to 4pm on Thursday, June 6 at Memorial Hall in City Hall. The second is being held from 6:30pm to 8:30pm on Wednesday, June 12 in the Rideau Heights Community Centre at 85 Maccauley Street.

The Mayor’s Task Force on Housing intends to present a thorough set of recommendations to assist city council in its decisions to address Kingston’s housing supply by the end of 2019.
