Kingston - Building in step with pedestrian-friendly plans

The city is trying to encourage pedestrian movement along upper Princess with the mix of business and residential -- a concept known as Main Street Commercial.

"It will help reinforce the intent along there," said city planning director George Wallace.

"Buildings to the street. Wider sidewalks. The idea is it helps to promote a pedestrian atmosphere along the street. As redevelopment occurs along the midtown, it's to do so in the context of pedestrian traffic."
