City Seeks Feedback on Proposed Kingscourt Changes

The City of Kingston wants to hear your feedback on some proposed changes to the Kingscourt district, in anticipation of the opening of the new secondary school in the area.

A couple of the changes include the creation of a 1.6-kilometre pathway from Third Avenue to John Counter Blvd, and an improved pedestrian crossing at Concession and Leroy Grant Drive.

"We want to make walking or cycling to the new school the top ways to get there - and provide all area residents with active alternatives to driving. We are also considering posting reduced speed limits and on-street parking changes on Kirkpatrick Street, an all-way stop at Kirkpatrick and Lyons and other longer-term enhancements in the area of Concession and Macdonnell," says Ian Semple, director transportation services. A report to council on these further proposed changes will go before council in March.
