Central Kingston Growth Strategy - Engagement

Central Kingston Growth & Infill Strategy

Engagement Opportunities

Community Working Group

To engage the community, a working group has been established comprised of representatives from City council, Queen's University and St. Lawrence College, the student governments of these post-secondary institutions, and interested residents.

Consultation Events and Timeline

Urban design workshop – June 28, 2018

The urban design workshop will seek feedback on study areas that may be appropriate for intensification – and on the scale and form of intensification. Participants will also be asked to identify compatibility principles (such as building height, setbacks from the street, setbacks between properties, landscaping, etc.) to be incorporated into the Strategy's framework to guide infill and intensification in the central Kingston.

June 28 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall, City Hall

Neighbourhood walks

The purpose of the neighbourhood walks is for residents to identify the existing character of the various neighbourhoods within the Central Kingston Growth Strategy study area. Neighbourhood character is a land use planning and urban design concept that focuses on the size, shape, location and type of buildings, along with their relationship to the size and shape of properties and the public realm. It is often associated with the era of a neighbourhood's development and is subject to change over time as the neighbourhood evolves.

Walk Information

Join City staff and the project team for neighbourhood walks, approximately 2 km long on June 14, 16, 25, 27. Paper feedback forms and pens will be provided during these walks for participants to provide feedback.
