Kingston's future can have it all

See urban planning expert Brent Toderian’s full presentation here

We are so excited that last week’s visit by urban planning expert Brent Toderian has everyone talking about how to best grow Kingston. Those interested in urban planning may have long felt themselves to be either pro-development or pro-heritage preservation – as if both these needs could not be met at once.

Brent Toderian’s presentation, #DensityDoneWell in a Kingston By Design, showed us that future Kingston can have it all.  It is possible to intensify areas and build density in a way that contributes to the charm of the city, makes it more livable and frames our heritage assets to excellent advantage. We can plan to build a city that offers a variety of downtown housing options, increases our vacancy rate to make more housing more affordable and respects Kingston’s past, human-scale, beautiful streetscapes and water views.

Get excited about the possibilities for future Kingston. See the presentation that everyone is talking about in this video or view the power point presentation
