The Rural Advisory Committee exists to advise Kingston City Council regarding regarding the interests of Kingston's rural residents.  The committee does this by reviewing city policies, providing recommendations to Council, and listening to members of the community about any issue, policy or concern that impacts the country area.

As you can see in the map posted above, there is a large rural area comprised are many rural communities to consider.  The committee composition is meant to represent that diversity by including representatives from across the area, and who may represent residential needs, agriculture, or business.

Some issues that have been recently considered by the Rural Advisory Committee include:

  • Proposed Solar Production Facilities and related policies
  • Estate Residential developments
