From the City of Kingston Press Release:
Come out and discuss recreational uses on the waterfront of the Great Cataraqui River area and offer input on this area of the City of Kingston’s Waterfront Master Plan. This public session is one of several consultations to take place in upcoming months and is set for 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 18 in Memorial Hall, City Hall, 216 Ontario St.
The Great Cataraqui River, Focus Area 1, public session will look at the waterfront stretching from the La Salle Causeway north to Kingston Mills Locks.
Points of interest in the area include connections, pathways and trails, Douglas Fluhrer Park, Molly Brant Point, Emma Martin Park, Belle Park Fairways, the eastern wooded shoreline of the River and the Kingston Mills Locks area. Participants will learn about existing conditions in the area, view conceptual plans and be asked to offer suggestions on features, improvements and access improvements to the waterfront.
“If you have ideas on the Waterfront Master Plan, particularly relating to the Great Cataraqui River, please come out to the session. We want to hear from you,” says Neal Unsworth, Manager, Parks Development. He notes that an initial public consultation on this project was held in June 2014.
This next phase of public consultation will take place over the coming months and consists of several meetings, each focused on a different area of Kingston’s waterfront. Organized by Focus Area, the consolidated Waterfront Master Plan is expected to be ready for city-wide public review in June 2015.
