Coalition – Planning Process

A coalition of community groups has issued a scathing report criticizing Kingston city council and city staff for ignoring public input on planning decisions.

The Coalition of Kingston Communities has issued a 16 page brief claiming the city only pays lip service to getting public input on planning issues.  The brief says Kingston’s process isn’t fair and city council has not been following the city’s official plan when it approves developments.

The Coalition represents about a dozen community groups in Kingston.

It is calling for a cultural shift at city hall to one of openness, transparency, and inclusion.

It says Kingston has to restore a balance between public and private interests.

Stabbing – Sentence

A 33-year-old man has been sentenced to time served and two years of probation in the stabbing of a man at Princess and Macdonnell Streets in July of 2014.

Daniel Darryl Kent had been in jail since he was arrested after the stabbing.

He was scheduled to go on trial next week for attempted murder…but he plead guilty to the lesser charge of aggravated assault.
