Advising on the Kingston Comprehensive Plan

Preservation League Public Policy Director Daniel Mackay visited Kingston this week to offer some advice on that city's proposed comprehensive plan. The meeting was covered by Ariél Zangla for the Daily Freeman.

“For all the good stuff and the sections of detail and emphasis that are in the 2025 plan, I feel like the plan falls significantly short in terms of historic preservation,” Mackay said.

He also said the city’s historic legacy has extraordinary depth and density, so “it’s a concern that the planning consultants hired for this effort do not adequately or even accurately represent the sort of preservation infrastructure that’s already in place in this community” or the opportunities for further advancing and accelerating preservation and economic development that builds on the city’s historic resources.
