The Kingston Planning Office has a staff of three, the Planning Director, Assistant Planner, and a Senior Clerk. The Planning Department has several activities that it oversees on a regular basis.
Kingston Planning Board – Regular meetings are held once a month, on the third Monday evening, with exceptions made for holidays. Special meetings are scheduled as needed by the Board Chairman.
The Planning Board undertakes reviews of site plans, subdivisions, special permits, and curb cut requests. The Board also makes recommendations to the Common Council on rezoning applications for both map changes and text amendments, and provides zoning variance recommendations upon the request of the ZEO. Staff to the Planning Board is responsible for meeting with applicants and/or their designated representative to discuss the process and information needed to make submissions. Our office provides individuals with technical assistance in matters regarding planning, zoning and the SEQR laws. Detailed reviews of plans are completed and site inspections made to assist the Board with the decision making process. Follow-up meetings and inspections are completed with Building Officials and Planning staff to insure compliance with approved plans.

Surplus City Owned Property and Paper Street Sales – Periodically, the City forecloses on properties for non-payment of taxes. Generally, at least one major sale is administered per year with others scheduled as needed. In addition to coordinating all sales, the Planning Department is responsible for handling payments, bid deposits, transfers, deed filings and follow-up on activity occurring for renovation/rehabilitation/new construction at each site. Paper streets are also sold according to the Local Laws, as requested by adjacent land owners. This process involves coordination of all adjacent property owners being offered a proportionate share based on their existing parcels.
