The City is developing a secondary plan for the North King's Town area – the Inner Harbour and Old Industrial areas just north of the downtown core. Phase one, the community visioning exercise and preliminary market analysis, was completed from 2016 to 2017.

The second phase of the project will involve five technical studies, including: land use, transportation, servicing, cultural heritage and finance and implementation.

The North King’s Town Cultural Heritage Study provides an analysis of the study area’s cultural heritage features, and also provides recommendations for the NKT Secondary Plan. It is intended to be an advisory document aiding the preparation of land use policies and development standards in the secondary plan.

As part of the background research for the cultural heritage resources study, a historic chronology of North King's Town has been prepared to illustrate the timeline of past events.

    Expecting residents of Kingston to read 300 pages of a report and give their opinions in an email is definitely NOT A SURVEY and is insulting. Whoever came up with this idea does not want public consultation.

    Steven Testart asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for your feedback on the draft NKT cultural heritage report. While a survey has not been created for this project at this time, we certainly understand your concern with the size of the document. City staff have taken steps to ensure that the draft report is as accessible as possible, including posting it to this page with a two-week timeframe, so that members of the public have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback to the project team. Because of the number of technical facets to this document, it is certainly quite lengthy and our priority has been to ensure that it encompasses all the required information to inform this project going forward. 

    We’ve received a great deal of interest from members of the community that do want to review the entire report; however, your concern about the length of the document is noted, and we’ll consider adding an executive summary for the final version. If you’d like to discuss or review the document with a member of the planning staff, please don’t hesitate to contact the planning division at 613.546.4291 ext. 3180 or email to project planner at nktplan@cityofkingston.ca

    Let's leave the map heritage permanently on the web site page so that all persons will be able to follow the trail of changes.. public record?

    db2 asked over 2 years ago

    Thank you for the question. We want to see the map maintained as a part of the public record too. The Get Involved Kingston platform is intended for temporary public engagement tools, and isn’t part of the main City of Kingston website, so we couldn’t maintain the map indefinitely on this particular site. However, once the commenting period is over, we will provide a copy of the map with the points of interest and comments on the North King’s Town project page on the City’s website, so it will stay as part of the public record for the secondary plan.
