June 7, 2017: Open house #2 - Draft Vision

Kingston will be a city that embraces active modes of transportation and where residents and visitors can walk, cycle and wheel using a network of accessible, safe, connected and well-maintained trails, bicycle lanes, sidewalks and walkways which will lead to 20% of all travel occurring via active modes of transportation. The vision will be realized through six key principles.
