Proposal to exchange ABNA-owned waterfront and Doug Fluhrer Park lands to be presented at open house
May 4, 2016 -
The City of Kingston is holding a public open house to present an ABNA Investments Ltd. proposal to exchange waterfront land it owns at 6 Cataraqui St. (beside the north end of Douglas R. Fluhrer Park) for land at the south end of the park.
"This proposal invites the public to explore the possibilities for this historic waterfront area as we move forward with creating a community vision for the Inner Harbour. This open house will be used to receive feedback on the proposed land exchange," says Luke Follwell, director of recreation and leisure services.
The City is putting the proposal before the public ahead of launching its community visioning exercise for North King's Town later this month. It will invite the community to help shape the future of the Inner Harbour and Old Industrial areas.
The public open house on the potential Doug Fluhrer Park land exchange is at 7 p.m. on Monday, May 16 at Central Branch Library, 130 Johnson St., Wilson Room. ABNA's proposed concept plans for the exchanged land will be on display. See them now at www.CityofKingston.ca/projects.
