Kingston mayor launches new Zoning Task Force

KINGSTON – Mayor Steven Noble has appointed nine members to the new Zoning Task Force that will explore overhauling existing zoning regulations in the City of Kingston.

The new group will develop a scope of work using the recommendations from the former Comprehensive Plan Zoning Sub-Committee, and with support from Hudson Valley Pattern for Progress, which has developed a tool kit to prioritize the city’s needs.

Once issues are identified, a request for proposals will be issued soliciting a planning firm for common council approval. The task force will then work with the selected consultant to develop zoning recommendations consistent with the city’s comprehensive plan to spur responsible economic development, and maintain the community’s quality of life.

“Zoning issues have long been a challenge. Putting a system in place that best serves our community will only become more crucial as our city continues to grow,” said the mayor.          

The first session of the new task force will be held on Monday, February 18 at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall.

Members of the new task force are:

  • Tony Argulewicz
  • Tracy Dumigan
  • Michael Gillard
  • Sydney Marcescia
  • Karen Markisenis
  • Rebecca Martin
  • Liza Sunderlin
  • Anthony Tampone
  • Maisha Tyler
