Dear Friends -
Thank you to everyone who came out for my State of the City address this week. It's a great time to assess the accomplishments we achieved and obstacles we faced in 2018, and to set goals for the new year. It's also a time to thank those who have helped achieve these goals, and lay out partnerships for the future. I am humbled by the challenges left to tackle and heartened by the overwhelming response I've gotten offering support in these efforts.
The Kingston Visitor's Guide for 2019 has a theme straight from the State of the City, "Strong Roots, Smart Growth," that will showcase Kingston's history and architecture, as well as new and future projects and plans. If you have photos that showcase this theme, please send them to us!
As you may have seen, City Hall is getting a new roof, and there have been cranes and workers here for a few weeks. The workers are hoping to wrap up in the next couple of weeks, but please be advised as you receive your tax documents, we have limited parking spaces and the entire building is a construction zone. If you can, please wait until February to visit City Hall, or pay those via mail.
We had a very successful art opening in our gallery space at City Hall. The exhibit will be on display until March 31. I hope you'll come by to see the work by some very talented Kingston artists.
