null Input invited on Waterfront Master Plan draft strategy
November 3, 2015 –
Help improve Kingston's future waterfronts: come offer input on the Waterfront Master Plan's draft implementation strategy and recommendations. They will be presented 7 to 9 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 16 in the Press Lounge at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, 53 Yonge St. (the presentation begins at 7:15 p.m.).
"We've had such great community involvement in developing this plan. Now, we are ready to present the final draft and suggested improvements to Kingston's waterfront," says Neal Unsworth, manager, parks development for the City of Kingston.
Over the past year, the City has consulted with the public on Waterfront Master Plan's six focus areas – each focus area had its own public meeting – and then presented a consolidated plan featuring 137 projects this past June. On Nov. 16, the City will present a rationale and strategy for prioritizing and implementing the projects over the next 30+ years.
A final draft plan will go to the arts, recreation and community policies committee early in January.
