See preliminary concepts to develop lands at Kingston Airport at open house
June 7, 2016
Initial draft concepts for the best use of 108 hectares of land available for development at Kingston Airport will be presented for input at an upcoming open house.
"We asked the questions: what uses are consistent with our airport's characteristics, the needs of our community and are fully aligned with regional strengths and opportunities and council's strategic priorities," said Peter Huigenbos, the City of Kingston's manager of real estate and land development. "The consultant spoke with residents, industry and business leaders, completed research and identified four preliminary concepts to develop Kingston's airport lands."
The niche concepts presented will offer ideas on how the aerospace, aviation and complimentary markets might use the available airport land parcels.
Drop in, listen, discuss and share your thoughts about the best use of airport lands anytime between 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, June 13 in the Sail Room at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, 53 Yonge St.
The open house will include:
- a short, recurring presentation of the niche concepts
- theme stations to allow for in-depth discussions about the niche concepts and land parcels being considered
- mini-surveys to gather more feedback
