City seeks feedback on ways to enliven Princess and Division intersection with The Hub Project
September 18, 2018 -
The intersection of Princess and Divisions Streets welcomes thousands of pedestrians, cyclists and commuters every day, and connects the diverse districts of Sydenham, Williamsville, King's Town and the downtown business corridor. Now, with the final phase of the Princess St. reconstruction underway, the City is seeking feedback on how to enliven the intersection through public art and other creative means.
"Active, lively and creative public spaces are what make Kingston such a vibrant place to live and visit. The Hub Project provides an exciting opportunity to reimagine this intersection in a way that connects four distinct parts of the city," says Colin Wiginton, cultural director.
Public engagement begins Saturday, Sept. 29 with a pop-up event to gather ideas about what downtown Kingston represents to residents, visitors and businesses. Coinciding with Culture Days, the pop-up event runs 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the intersection of Princess and Barrie streets. Kids are welcome and activity bags will be available.
Feedback received will help determine next steps in the engagement process. Go to GetInvolved.CityofKingston.ca and sign up to receive updates on The Hub Project.
