Check out the latest version of From the Mayor’s Chair, where I break down the decisions of Council in 3 minutes or less.

Highlights from the March 22  Council meeting include the approval of the Waterfront Master Plan an ambitious plan to invest over $60 million in Kingston’s 280 kilometers of shoreline over the next 30 years. Council voted to send the Samsung solar project community benefit fund to the Rural Advisory Committee to hear from residents about how they want to see the money from the fund spent and Council asked staff to explore a policy to treat all organizations equally when requesting fee waivers for city facility rentals.

  1. This is such a great series. Thanks so much for keeping us so well informed!
    Also wondering who in staff I should contact re what seem to us to be exhorbitant fees for non-profits to rent city parks. We really feel that these fees should always be waived. It cost us $1000 to rent Doug Fluhrer Park for our ON THE WALL art event. It costs us $50 to rent the park for any afternoon. These costs build up when we have events like Family Fridays in the park in the summer. I believe these fees seriously constrain communities – especially those in disadvantaged neighbourhoods.
