Interested in what development and building projects are being proposed by property-owners in Kingston?
The City of Kingston wants citizens to know they are welcome to offer input on proposals for both private and public projects that could be built in Kingston.
"We want people to know what is being proposed. We review hundreds of development and building-related requests from property-owners a year, so there is a lot for the public to know about and explore. We send out notices about proposed projects to households close to the site, but if you are interested in projects beyond your immediate area, please keep an eye on DASH and planning committee meetings," says Paige Agnew, director of planning, building and licensing.
Where to find and follow information about proposed development and building projects – and their status:
- To see the status of every proposed development in Kingston, see DASH – www.CityofKingston.ca/DASH. It shows the location, details and status of all applications to the City's planning department, including requests for Official Plan and zoning bylaw amendments, site plans, draft plans of subdivisions and applications for minor variances. DASH also offers contact details should you wish to follow-up on what you learn.
- Planning committee courtesy and related notices are posted at www.CityofKingston.ca/news and www.CityofKingston.ca/PlanningCommittee. These notices show the details of proposed projects that will be considered by the planning committee. A version of the notice will also appear in the Kingston Whig-Standard.
- The planning committee agenda is posted on the Saturday morning before the committee's regular meetings. Go to www.CityofKingston.ca/PlanningCommittee. Anyone may attend a meeting of the planning committee.
- Let Twitter remind you when to check the planning committee agenda. Follow @CityofKingston – reminder tweets will be scheduled with a link to the agenda.
