Inner Harbour Development

City councillor Rob Hutchison says more information is needed before council approves moving the crumbling train station on Montreal Street to Doug Fluhrer Park on Kingston’s inner harbour.

Abna Investments has entered into an agreement with the city to move the historic train station and rebuild it in the park near the OHIP building.

City Council will discuss the proposal tomorrow night. City council will also get an update on the Wellington Street extension.

Several members of city council are opposed to extending the street and want to have it removed from the city’s official plan.

The report to council tomorrow night says the extension is vital to redeveloping Doug Fluhrer Park, the economic future of the area, part of ongoing plans to develop housing as well as extending the K&P Trail.

Meet this Week’s “Caturday Cat” – Beyonce

Posted on by Courtney

Caturday 600x200
BeyonceHello!!!! My name is “Beyonce”. My name does reflect that I am a talker! I just like to keep you entertained or I will find my own spot to curl up on and take a snooze. I am not your typical cat that likes to cuddle in your arms, I am more the type that I will come to you for a cuddle on your lap but I do enjoy a good petting on my favorite napping place or places I should say. I am a sweet girl, look for my new forever home that I can relax and become part of your family. I will let you know that I have a sensitive stomach and do require a “Digestive Comfort” diet to ensure that my belly does not become upset with any foods that may be too rich for me. Please ask my lovely caregivers at the KHS for more information about that!!

Meet this Week’s “Friday FurBall” – Barney Rubble

Posted on by Courtney

Barney RubbleYabba dabba doo, meet our Barney Rubble! This 50lb fellow wandered into our care as a stray and is searching for his forever home. Much like his namesake, Barney Rubble is very vocal and would benefit from a house environment. He would be a great family pet with Bam Bams and Pebbles that are over 6 as he is affectionate and needs to learn some basic manners. Barney Rubble would love to have a dog companion as he is very playful and energetic. A previous or current dog owner would be most beneficial for our little Bedrock bud! Come visit and he’ll talk your ear off!
