Event: Comprehensive Plan Zoning Committee Public Informational Presentation

KINGSTON, N.Y. The City of Kingston, through its Comprehensive Plan Zoning Committee, has announced the first in a series of informational presentations and forums planned this summer to inform the community of proposed zoning amendments and to solicit public feedback. The first informational presentation will be held on Thursday, June 29th at 6:00pm at Kingston’s City Hall, located at 420 Broadway. The presentation will be led by Shuster Associates and Nelson, Pope and Voorhis LLC (formerly Turner-Miller Group, LLC.)
“The Comprehensive Plan Zoning Committee has been working diligently to develop a multi-phase zoning update that aligns with our recently adopted Comprehensive Plan, streamlines processes, and preserves our historic and natural resources,” said Mayor Steve Noble. “While this initial presentation will focus on providing a broad overview of zoning within the City and the committee’s initial recommendations, it will also set the stage for subsequent forums in which we discuss many of the proposed zoning amendments at further length.”
“It is gratifying to bring the committee’s work to the public after spending over a year fully immersed in this project,” said Common Council President James Noble. “Like the Comprehensive Plan before it, this zoning update will be the product of well-vetted research and public input.”
Attendees of the June 29th event will learn about the proposed zoning amendments through a presentation format. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions following the presentation. Additional public events will be scheduled throughout the summer and will include opportunities for public comment and dialogue.
