The City of Kingston is developing a secondary plan for the North King's Town area – the Inner Harbour and Old Industrial areas just north of downtown. The plan will support and promote a sustainable, vibrant and livable community for a significant portion of Kingston's urban core. Find out more about the North Kings Town Project.

Work has resumed on Phase 2 of the North King’s Town Secondary Plan. The project was paused in 2019 to reallocate staff resources to the Williamsville Main Street Study update, it was delayed again with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to reallocate staff resources.

2024 Engagement

An open house was held on April 10 to review technical drafts completed as part of the plan draft.

2023 Engagement

Neighbourhood Changes Survey

The Neighbourhood Changes survey was posted on Get Involved Kingston and was available between May 29 and June 19, 2023.

The purpose of this survey was to collect information from members of the public on what changes had occurred within the North King’s Town (NKT) study area in recent years, to better understand what attributes of the area the community values and what are considered to be opportunities for improvement.

Workshop Discussion Questions

Virtual and in-person open houses and workshops were held on June 12 and 13, 2023 respectively. These events included a presentation, question and answer period and a workshop on discussion questions. There were approximately 40 participants during the virtual Zoom event and approximately 35 participants during the in-person event, which was held at The Broom Factory, 305 Rideau Street.

Development Community and Landowner Interviews

Following the Open Houses and Workshops held on June 12 and 13, 2023, the project team met with various members of the local development community and property owners within the proposed Intensification Areas to discuss land uses, building heights, density, and opportunities and constraints to redevelopment within the study area. The comments received through those interviews have been summarized in the following themes and will be considered by the project team in conjunction with other consultation comments when preparing revised materials.

    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

    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.
