Public Notice Document

Open House – Tuesday, June 28th
Residents and businesses are encouraged to attend a drop-in ‘Promenade Open House’ between the hours of 1:00pm- 7:00pm at the Kincardine Centre for the Arts (A-707 Queen Street, Kincardine). Staff will be available to answer questions and concerns about the event. Downtown resident parking and access passes will be available.

Launched in 2020 to support our local businesses and provide a safe space for pedestrians and patrons of the downtown, the Promenade on Queen will return in 2022, commencing every Sunday, starting July 3rd, 2022  through to August 28, 2022 from 10am-4pm.

The Promenade on Queen restricts vehicle traffic on Queen Street in downtown Kincardine from Durham Market North to Lambton Street. It will be a pedestrian friendly area at least 1-hour prior and after the event.

This allows downtown businesses within the closure area, an opportunity to display products outdoors, local artesians to display their goods and restaurants to expand their outdoor patios. It also provides an opportunity to promote physical distancing for those walking through the closure area on days that are typically busier during the summer months.

 

Accessible Parking and Access

A map identifying accessible parking locations is provided below. A total of 16 accessible

parking locations are provided near the street closure area, including 5 additional spaces that will be temporarily

added for the Promenade event.
