UPDATE: Nuisance Party Bylaw

In our last eNewsletter, we encouraged you to participate in the Nuisance Party Bylaw.  Although the survey is now closed you can view the submission by visiting https://getinvolved.cityofkingston.ca/nuisance-party-bylaw.


The City of Kingston is exploring the concept of a Nuisance Party Bylaw as a local enforcement tool. The introduction of a Nuisance Party Bylaw would provide Police and Bylaw Enforcement with the ability, under one City-wide bylaw, to address the negative impacts on neighbourhoods of behaviours associated with large social gatherings.

An information report was submitted to the November 7, 2017 City Council meeting. You can access that document by visiting this page:
getinvolved.cityofkingston.ca/nuisance-party-bylaw.

City staff want to hear from residents about how the intended scope of a Nuisance Party Bylaw could address behaviour specific to large social gatherings or parties in our community.

Residents are invited to share their feedback on the concept of a Nuisance Party Bylaw at a public meeting on Monday, November 27 at 6:30 p.m. in the Press Lounge at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, 53 Yonge St.

Additional opportunities for residents to ask questions about the concept of a Nuisance Party Bylaw are available on the City’s online engagement site, Get Involved Kingston, at getinvolved.cityofkingston.ca/nuisance-party-bylaw. Comments and feedback can be emailed to Greg McLean, policy and program coordinator, at npbylaw@cityofkingston.ca until Dec. 8.
