About the Project 

It's an exciting time for Kingston! With Council’s fresh strategic direction and continued growth on the horizon, it’s an increasingly desirable place to live. The City of Kingston is developing a new Official Plan and a new Integrated Mobility Plan (formerly the Transportation Master Plan) and have aligned the two projects to take place at the same time, creating an incredible opportunity for alignment at a policy level in planning for the City’s future. 

City of Kingston Official Plan

The City of Kingston is required to update the Official Plan every five years in accordance with the requirements of the Planning Act. Instead of a simple update to the existing plan, the City will be preparing a brand new Official Plan to proactively plan for growth to ensure that Kingston continues to be a livable, diverse, equitable and prosperous City as the population is expected to grow to 220,900 people by 2051. 

City of Kingston Integrated Mobility Plan 

The Integrated Mobility Plan (IMP) outlines Kingston's future transportation network vision and goals. Aligned closely with the Official Plan's direction, it considers the infrastructure, programs, and policies necessary to accommodate long-term growth while shaping the city's transportation system for the future. 

What is a Community Advisory Group? 

A Community Advisory Group (CAG)  is a panel of community members who are selected to provide advice to the City of Kingston on a project, based on their specific connection to a project, knowledge and/or experience. The CAG will meet three times to review, and provide feedback and input at key decision points throughout the review of Kingston’s Official Plan and for the development of the Integrated Mobility Plan. Applicants will also have the opportunity to self-identify whether they would like to be considered for the additional Project Champion role. 

You can review the terms of reference.

What is expected from CAG members? 

Community Advisory Group members are expected to commit to: 

  • Attending and actively participating in three meetings over two years and reviewing materials before and after meetings as required. 

  • Representing their community and providing feedback for the future vision of Kingston, informing the Official Plan rewrite and the development of the Integrated Mobility Plan. 

  • Promoting engagement opportunities and public surveys within their networks. 

The first meeting will be held in person, location to be determined, on Sept. 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Will I be compensated for participation? 

Community Advisory Group members will be compensated with $225 upon completion of the project, at a rate of $75 per meeting.
