Items for Discussion/Recommendation:
Employment Land Strategy Review Study – Final Report – Consultant Briefing
The Employment Land Strategy Review Study has been completed by Watson and Associates Economists Ltd. in association with Dillon Consulting Limited. The purpose of the study was to undertake a comprehensive review of both City-owned and privately-owned employment land within the City and to recommend a long term vision and strategy to ensure the provision of an adequate supply of jobs for the City's growing population. The recommendations of the study are to be implemented through the City's 5 Year Official Plan Update and feed into the preparation of the Comprehensive Zoning Bylaw. Both the Official Plan Update and the Comprehensive Zoning Bylawwill have extensive consultation programs and statutory Planning Act processes.
Estate Residential Review – Final Review
The City of Kingston hired RFA Planning Consultant Inc. to undertake the Estate Residential Review. The purpose of the review is to examine background information that the City had compiled, including its vacant land inventory, rural severance activity and building permit activity, and recent proposals for estate residential developments. Further, the review identifies trends in lot creation and residential development in the rural area, reviews current approaches to estate residential development in other Ontario municipalities, and recommends changes to the Official Plan policy on residential development and lot creation in the rural area. This report presents the results of the Estate Residential Review and recommends that the results and recommendations of the study be implemented through the 5 Year Official Plan Update.
