The Kingston Residents' Alliance is made up of various local residents associations and social groups. We have no political alliance nor special interest in Kingston other than to support our Council in making the best possible decisions for our town's future.
Up to present, our primary actions have been working with various development plans coming through the Council. We aren't experts on planning policy and make no claims to fully understand the issues involved. We simply believe that what Kingston needs is reasonable, balanced growth on a human scale.
We want a walk-able town that we love to live in, that is safe and healthy for our children, that revitalizes community and culture, and that engages in sustainable practices that make Kingston a vibrant and resilient town center for decades to come.
Development is inevitable but but not at any cost. There is plenty of evidence out there that low- to mid-rise towns and mixed-use buildings (residential, cultural, and commercial) all work to make happier, healthier residents and more vibrant urban environments. We believe that a lot of this is common sense.
