Since 1970, our rigorous and well-focused two-year Master of Planning (M.PL.) program allows our students to develop the knowledge and skills they require to become leaders in the planning field and to meet the challenges of a rapidly evolving urban environment.
There is over 150 kilometres of shoreline in the City, fronting on Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, the Great Cataraqui River and the Little Cataraqui Creek. Kingston’s waterfront contains examples of successes and failures in integrating the City with its waterfront. The waterfront along Lake Ontario and the inner harbour of the Great Cataraqui River are at the forefront of on-going community debates and discussions of how best to redevelop these strategic assets. A waterfront strategy was identified in the Community Strategic Plan and selected by City Council as a priority item for completion. The City has completed a waterfront visioning exercise and is currently preparing a work plan to undertake a waterfront strategy. City Council, through its waterfront visioning exercises in November and December 2001, established some broad principles for the waterfront. While there have been many waterfront studies, there is not one plan for the future of the entire waterfront of the new City of Kingston. Planners for the City of Kingston have not yet taken a “big picture” look at the entire waterfront.
