Kingston Forward: Citywide Rezoning

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Kingston Forward is an ongoing planning initiative to engage the community in describing the desired form and character for future improvements and preservation throughout the City. Input gathered will shape updates to the City’s zoning code. An updated zoning code can support community goals such as historic preservation, economic development, increased housing options, resilient neighborhoods, the design of streets and public spaces, and so much more.

There will be many opportunities to be involved in the rezoning process. Register at EngageKingston to receive news, updates, and alerts about the Kingston Forward process.
