The City of Kingston has awarded the contract to provide landscape design plans for greenspace at the newly-configured intersection at Broadway and Prince Street to KaN Landscape Design.
The City of Kingston issued an RFP in April, which asked qualified firms to develop a landscape design plan to serve as a blueprint for creating an attractive, inviting public space at a crucial juncture of the Kingston Greenline in the heart of Midtown.
KaN is a women-owned, Kingston-based landscape design firm that has worked on many local projects including the Y Park, the YMCA playground, and the African Burial Ground. Community engagement, stakeholder support, and the inclusion of youth groups and local organizations will be an integral part of the plan development.
KaN will kick off the project at the YMCA Farm Project’s Harvest Day on September 20 to gather initial public input, and will launch a survey in September. During the extensive engagement process, KaN will meet with nearby residents and businesses, local organizations, and will hold a series of youth-led, interactive workshops to facilitate ideas, among other activities.
