An important opportunity has come to light.
On Tuesday, August 3rd at 7:30pm the common council will vote to support (or not) a grant proposal pitched by city planning coordinator Suzanne Cahill through the Financial and Economic Development Committee. The meeting will take place at Kingston’s City Hall at 420 Broadway.
Under the HUD Community Planning Program, the Committee agreed unanimously to support a bond request for $240,000. The grant would be $200,000 with the $40,000 being the local share. Being that the city of Kingston has not created a citywide comprehensive plan in almost 50 years, it is important for citizens to show their support. There is always time at the front of every common council session for public comment. A few words of three minutes or less is all it will take to help make a positive impact on Kingston’s future development.
