City of Kingston Official Plan Update - D08-006-2015
A comprehensive update to the 2010 Official Plan was initiated in early 2015 to ensure consistency with the 2014 Provincial Policy Statement, to recognize the findings of recent technical studies (e.g., population forecasts, employment lands review, waterfront master plan, etc.), and to address input received from external agencies and the public. The update process has included informal opportunities for community engagement, in addition to statutory public open houses and meetings before the City's planning committee and council. A fourth draft of the Official Plan Update was posted to the project webpage on July 27, 2016 and an open house was held on Aug. 10, 2016. Comments from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs were received on July 27, 2016. As a result, minor revisions have been made to the fourth draft of the Official Plan Update. The Plan has now been finalized and will be presented to planning committee along with an implementing bylaw on September 1, 2016.
