See proposed improvements to Rotary Park driveway

July 12, 2016 -

The City of Kingston is proposing improvements to the Rotary Park/Lemoine Point Conservation Area driveway to enhance safety related to traffic speed, parking, cycling and pedestrians.

"Everyone loves Rotary Park and Lemoine Point. We have to make sure this driveway can safely accommodate all those who want to come enjoy these spaces – and all the modes of transportation they use to get there," says Luke Follwell, director of recreation and leisure services.

Proposed upgrades include new traffic-calming measures at various points along the entire length of the driveway and improvements to the gravel shoulder near the dog park. The upgrades will be implemented late this fall.

Parking has been restricted on the shoulder near the dog park until the finalized safety measures can be implemented. A concept drawing of the improvements can be found at www.CityofKingston.ca/projects under "Parks Development."

Feedback on the concept will be accepted until Friday, July 29. Offer your comments to Chanda Sames at csames@cityofkingston.ca  or 613-546-4291 ext. 3250.
