One thought on “Opinion: The bad news on proposed zoning bylaw changes – Kingston residents have no clue

    To solve the housing crisis (price and availability) in Kingston, we absolutely need intensification in the downtown and on major arteries. The proposal for towers downtown and medium height apartment buildings on major arteries seems reasonable (very common in European cities). I also support the concept to “as of right” additional living units on formerly single unit residential lots but would agree that these must be limited in ways that would retain liveable neighbourhoods. Rather than rejecting additional living units on residential properties altogether, I would suggest additional restrictions, particularly on lot coverage and height. The student ghetto is an appalling example of insufficient zoning control.
