Offer feedback on the concept of a Nuisance Party Bylaw
November 13, 2017 -
The City is exploring the concept of a Nuisance Party Bylaw as a local enforcement tool. The introduction of a Nuisance Party Bylaw would provide Police and Bylaw Enforcement with the ability, under one City-wide bylaw, to address the negative impacts on neighbourhoods of behaviours associated with large social gatherings.
Residents are invited to share their feedback on the concept of a Nuisance Party Bylaw at a public meeting on Monday, November 27 at 6:30 p.m. in the Press Lounge at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, 53 Yonge St.
"Bylaws of this nature have been enacted by a number of Ontario municipalities in recent years and serve as an additional tool for local enforcement," says Greg McLean, policy and program coordinator. "We want to hear from residents about how the intended scope of a Nuisance Party Bylaw could address behaviour specific to large social gatherings or parties in our community."
Additional opportunities for residents to ask questions about the concept of a Nuisance Party Bylaw are available on the City's online engagement site, Get Involved Kingston, at getinvolved.cityofkingston.ca/nuisance-party-bylaw. Comments and feedback can be emailed to Greg McLean, policy and program coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org until Dec. 8.
