Kingscourt Development

Kingscourt, downtown Kingston, OntarioThis is the latest in a series of City Hall communication glitches, members of Council were taken unawares by this bland approval by the Planning Dept. They have, in effect, approved the destruction of a small, older growth urban forest.  To add to the situation, the developers have posted a startlingly misleading artist’s impression of the townhouses on their website.  A neat little row of houses is shown, with ACRES of green space beside and behind them – in reality they will be backed onto the gardens of the existing houses behind them.

We have already suffered misleading artwork from other developers – I think a little honesty from them and openness from the full-time staff of City Hall would be a good idea.
