Pursuant to the City's Public Notice Policy and the Disposition of Real Property Policy take notice that the council of the Corporation of the City of Kingston intends to declare surplus and dispose of the following municipal property:
Lands affected: The southeastern corner of the property known as 297 Gore Rd. having an area of approximately 0.2 acres with a frontage of approximately 32.8 metres on Rose Abbey Drive, described as Part 4 on Plan 13R-21436.
Explanatory note: 297 Gore Rd. is the former site of the Utilities Kingston water standpipe that was decommissioned in early 2016. As part of repurposing this site, the southeastern corner of the block was rezoned for residential use to match the existing form of housing in the surrounding neighbourhood. It is proposed to declare the residential portion of the site as surplus to municipal need and to sell it to Habitat for Humanity Kingston Limestone Region. The remainder of the block is to be dedicated as additional park lands connected to Buckingham Park with a portion to be dedicated as road allowance on Gore Road.
City council will consider a motion to declare the property surplus on Aug. 8, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. at its regular meeting to be held in the Council Chambers, City Hall, 216 Ontario St., Kingston.
Anyone wishing to be heard regarding these matters should contact the clerk's office or provide written comments before 4:30 p.m., Aug. 7, 2017.
In the event that the matter is deferred, no further public notice will be given.
