ALSO AT COUNCIL this week: $60,000 for the Kingston Inner Harbour Sediment Remediation Initiative.
The 2012 PRIORITY MATRIX is presented to Council on Tuesday's (February 21, 2012) meeting.
The matrix is presented in a new format this year, segmented in three exhibits. It's too bad the exhibits aren't properly labeled.
Exhibit A lists 49-items due for completion in 2012. We find nothing related to waterfront in Exhibit A. There's also nothing related to bike trails or parks unless by "park" you mean parking.
So don't hold your breath to see waterfront accessibility improvement this summer.
Exhibit B lists 42 initiatives for completion between 2012-2014. Those of waterfront interest:
Exhibit C lists 33 all initiatives from the Corporate Work Plan in Kingston's Strategic Plan that are due for completion in 2013 and 2014. Just one item has a waterfront component:
That's it. Three items out of 124, and two of those are studies with either no due date or a ridiculously long horizon.
This is all very disheartening, of course. Kingston's relationship with waterfront continues to suck.
More importantly: Why aren't stages of the Great Cataraqui River Trail Project not listed as priorities by 2014?
