Interested in North King's Town – the Inner Harbour and Old Industrial areas just north of downtown? Plan to come to an upcoming community visioning event to help shape its future.
"We received lots of great input at May's launch event and are looking forward to exploring some of those ideas in more depth and to gathering ideas from more people," says Greg Newman, the City of Kingston's manager, policy planning.
Ahead of developing the secondary plan for North King's Town, the City is conducting a community visioning exercise and preliminary market analysis of the area. To be developed over the next two years, the finalized secondary plan will identify opportunities to realize the vision of this significant portion of Kingston's urban core.
