View the Engagement Summary from the February 2019 Open House.

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.

    Can we not do this? Is there an actual requirement for it? How much will it cost? Why not add that money to the repair fund for Queen Street, if one even exists?

    Myles asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question! The decision to investigate renaming the City-owned portion of Highway 15 comes from a motion passed by City Council on September 18, 2018.  At the direction of City Council, staff will be conducting a public consultation process to consider a name change for the City-owned portion of Highway 15, being that which exists between Provincial Highway 401 and Highway 2.  The renaming of the city-owned portion of the road will reflect municipal jurisdiction.

    Part of this consultation includes investigating possible costs for both the City and residents. Potential costs for the City will likely include signage replacement and other published / constructed naming materials (e.g., road signs, plaques, City documents, etc.).

    If a new name is approved by Council, the City would notify applicable service providers (e.g. Canada Post, Bell Canada, emergency services, etc.) to lessen the potential inconvenience to land owners.  It would be the responsibility of residents to update their health card, vehicle permit and drivers license, however our research provides that there is no fee that would be applied.  Residents will also need to advise other companies and banks so that they are aware of the civic address change.  Staff are in the process of reviewing other potential costs.

    Do we get to vote on suggested names? My preference is Kingston Road 15. Giving our segment of the former Hwy 15 a different name would engender unnecessary confusion on the part of drivers who aren't familiar with the area.

    Ron Hartling asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question! As part of the City’s public consultation process, residents will be invited to provide new road names for consideration. New road names must comply with the road naming provisions of the Civic Addressing and Road Naming By-law.  We encourage interested residents to attend this public open house on Monday February 4, 2019 at the Fire Hall located at 211 Gore Road to provide feedback on the proposed renaming.

    From Feb. 4 – Feb. 18, polling will be conducted online on the Get Involved page. The results of the poll will be used to inform Council’s decision-making.

    Although council has agreed to rename this portion of road, are they bound by this?

    knakatsu asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question! No. As per the Sept. 28 2018 minutes, council has voted to conduct consultation as a means of exploring associated costs with renaming the municipal-owned portion of Highway 15. The results of this consultation will be presented to Planning Committee and subsequently City Council as a report, at which point it will be open to discussion by members of council.  Any name change will need to be determined by a council vote. The conclusion of this work could result in the road name remaining unchanged.

    Please advise the significance of Furnace Falls and Emerson, which to me at moment mean nothing to me even after living in Grenadier for 30 years and Pittsburgh District for 46 years. Perhaps knowing the relationship would make them more meaningful. Thank you. Jacki

    me asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question! Furnace Falls Road was selected as a candidate name due to its historical significance in the Barriefield area. The earliest reference to a name for the road north of Barriefield is contained in the 1807 survey diary of Reuben Sherwood (1799-1884) where he notes the “Furnace Road“ which led from the Montreal Road near Kingston Mills to the ironworks at “Furnace Falls”, now Lyndhurst.

    Emerson Rd was drawn from the City’s Road Name Reserve List. This list contains names that have been submitted by the public and selected by the City for a range of reasons. All names on the Road Name Reserve List have been pre-approved by local emergency service providers for use in the naming of new streets or the renaming of existing streets.

    Was consideration made of historic names other than those associated with male settlers? Perhaps a woman or indigenous name, or an acknowledgement of the military may be suitable. Valour Road comes to mind for the latter. I’m curious of the method by which the three proposed names were selected. Thank you.

    Tanya Grodzinski asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question! Candidate names were sourced from the City’s Road Name Reserve List, which is a maintained list of names that have been submitted by the public for a range of reasons. Specifically, Furnace Falls Road was selected due to its historical significance in the Barriefield area.

    Residents are encouraged to submit their own candidate names, and can do so by clicking on the "Ideas" tab.

    Is the City of Kingston interested in naming this road after an individual residing in the community who is dedicated to Diversity and Inclusion efforts within Kingston? This is an opportunity to show the broader community and Ontario that our city cares about D&I.

    Where is Furnace Falls?

    Tom Mentrak asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question. “Furnace Falls” refers to the historical ironworks located at present day Lyndhurst. In the 1807 survey diary of Reuben Sherwood, the road which led from the Montreal Road near Kingston Mills to “Furnace Falls” was called “Furnace Road.” It is the earliest historical record of the name for this road.

    What's the rationale for changing the name from Highway 15? You'll have to persuade me it's necessary and that the inevitable misdirection experienced by many drivers for the next few years will be worth their inconvenience if not worse. And don't use the word "road." Sounds far too secondary.

    Really what a waste of tax payers money what is this going to cost? Signs, staff salaries to review, reprint mape etc etc $50,000 probably wouldn't cover it all

    ppurvis asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question! The question of potentially renaming Highway 15 came up through a Council motion in 2013.  A recommendation report tied to this motion was presented to the City’s Rural Advisory Committee on June 4, 2014 . The report identified that the potential costs associated with renaming portions of Provincial Highways 2, 15, and 38, all of which have been downloaded to the municipality, would be limited to approximately $20,000 dollars. The 2018 motion of Council directing staff to evaluate the renaming of Highway 15 did not include the potential renaming of portions of former Provincial Highways 2 and 38. Costs associated with the renaming of a limited portion of Highway 15, if supported by Council, are estimated to be less than $10,000 dollars and could be pursued in tandem with works associated with improvements to the Highway 15 corridor, stemming from the on-going Highway 15 Environmental Assessment project.

    Why is this *necessary*? Are emergency vehicles having difficulty locating addresses along this stretch? Highway 15 seems pretty straightforward to me... I'd rather see money spent on necessary services, such as a sidewalk along Princess St. between Centennial and Gardiners Road, or renaming some of the roads that have one name for one half of a crescent and another name for the other half (e.g. Sherwood Dr. and Grosvenor Ct.).

    I understand that someone put the motion forward so it has to be looked into. However it seems more like a make work project than anything else. Residents will inevitably keep calling it hwy 15 no matter the new name. What I'm curious about is what are the labour costs associated with someone doing a cost analysis on this? I have no concept of the man hours involved and would love to know

    Anne825 asked over 1 year ago

    The costs associated with advertising and hosting the open house are limited and can be managed within the funding allocated to the Highway 15 design guidelines project. It is anticipated that total costs necessary to support the consultation will be less than $1,000. The City has booked the open house at a municipal facility and is leveraging established consultative tools (e.g., social media, the City’s “Get Involved” platform, etc.) to ensure costs remain minimal. The City has not sought the services of an outside consultant to facilitate the open house and will rely on the support of trained staff for this purpose.

    Hello. Why does the proposed name change stop at the 401? People beyond Brewers Mills pay city taxes and the name of the Highway should go right to the city boundary. Thank you.

    Cm asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question! While Highway 15 was originally owned by the province, control was transferred to the county and subsequently the City of Kingston in 1995. The area transferred to municipal jurisdiction extended from Highway 2 to Highway 401. Consequently, the proposed renaming stops at Highway 401, because the City does not own the highway past that point.
