April 29, 2016 -
The City of Kingston is seeking six community volunteers to be part of a working group that will help guide development of a secondary plan for the North King's Town area – the Inner Harbour and Old Industrial areas just north of downtown.
To be developed over the next two years, the plan will support the revitalization and redevelopment of this significant portion of Kingston's urban core.
"We value the knowledge and experience of our community volunteers and how they help make Kingston a smart and livable city. This is a great opportunity to become more deeply involved in shaping the future of this key area of the city," says John Bolognone, city clerk.
Residents, business owners, property owners and/or representatives from local community groups and non-profit organizations are all invited to participate in the North King's Town Secondary Plan community working group.
Apply to participate by May 13 at 4:30 p.m. at www.CityofKingston.ca/committees or at the city clerk's office at City Hall, 216 Ontario St.
Newcomers with permanent resident status and who have lived in Kingston for at least a year are welcome to apply to volunteer on a committee, thanks to a recent change in the eligibility requirements. Applicants must also be 18 years or older and live or own property in Kingston.
