KINGS 2050

Kings 2050 aims to guide the long-term sustainable development of Kings County so that future generations can enjoy a quality of life that is equal or better than today.

What should Kings County look like in the year 2050? The Kings 2050 initiative intends to answer that important question by developing a long-term vision for the region and improving Municipal regulations to better achieve our long-term goals.

In order to plan for the future, Kings 2050 is taking both a comprehensive and collaborative approach. It is comprehensive because the project covers several overlapping themes, including infrastructure, climate change, and urban planning. Kings 2050 is also uniquely collaborative because the initiative is facilitating cooperation between the Municipality and neighbouring Towns and Villages, as well as Provincial Departments and other regional stakeholders.

Regional Planning
Kings 2050 is first and foremost an effort to look beyond political boundaries to develop a vision for the whole of Kings County and to plan for opportunities and challenges that are not constrained by lines on a map. The results are the “Kings 2050 Vision” document (see below), a regional Municipal Climate Change Action Plan, and further steps towards collaboration among the four municipalities in Kings County.
Background Reports
Before we can plan for the future we need to know where we came from and where we are today. Throughout Phase 1 and into Phase 2 of the Kings 2050 initiative, the project team worked diligently to research and build this necessary foundation. The background reports available below provide the Kings County context and identify challenges and opportunities in this region as we look towards the year 2050.
