Staff have been directed by council to undertake public consultation and review associated costs with the renaming of the city-owned portion of Highway 15.

The public consultation will consider a name for the stretch of Highway 15 between Highway 401 and Highway 2. City staff will report back to council on the feedback received and recommend options for renaming the road, including associated costs and other implications.

The following road names have been proposed for consideration by the public. These names have been pre-approved by Kingston Fire & Rescue and comply with the road naming provisions of the City’s Civic Addressing and Road Naming Bylaw. Some of the names have a historic link to the surrounding area.

Proposed names

  • Furnace Falls Road
  • Emerson Road
  • Kingston Road 15

Residents will also be invited to offer additional eligible names for consideration. Names should comply with the road naming provisions of the City’s Civic Addressing and Road Naming Bylaw.

If a new road name is approved by council, land owners along the affected roadway will be notified of the name change by registered mail. Service providers will also be given notice of the name change to lessen the potential hardship to land owners. City staff will look at changes to road names and related infrastructure in tandem with other on-going projects, such as the Highway 15 Environmental Assessment and Highway 15 Design Guidelines.
