City Seeks Input on Phase Two Williamsville Main Street Transportation Study

Published on: 2023/02/14 - in News

The City of Kingston is seeking public feedback as part of its transportation study for Williamsville Mainstreet, a popular and growing area of the city that encompasses Princess Street from Division to Bath.

According to Marissa Mascaro, Manager of Transportation Infrastructure, “Over the last few years, development along the corridor has increased substantially and we expect to see continued growth in the area. To support this growth, we need to plan for how Williamsville Mainstreet will adapt to better accommodate people living and working there now and ensure it can grow with the neighbourhood.”

Residents and business owners in the area are encouraged to visit the Get Involved Kingston website and share their input on the transportation study by March 7 at 4 p.m.

The study aims to evaluate and prioritize improvements for public transit and pedestrians, and will guide future construction along the corridor. The project details can be accessed via a mapping tool on the website or by phoning 613-546-0000.

The Williamsville Main Street Study, last updated in 2020, provides a vision for future development in the area, taking into consideration cultural heritage resources and an assessment of the transportation network and servicing capacity. The transportation study currently being undertaken aligns with the plan and vision put forth in the Williamsville Main Street Study.
