Kingston Master Plan

The Kingston Master Plan defines the overarching goals stated by those that live and work in the small town of Kingston on the shores of Puget Sound in Washington State. The scope of work included working with community members, property owners and municipal planning officials. The Master Plan derives its inspiration based upon sustainable small town living paradigms. These models include an emphasis on walk-able streets, alley loaded single and attached housing, mixed use buildings within the core of the town and attention to the implementation of rain-gardens to control and purify storm run-off into the near-shore environment. Parking and other necessary considerations were re-evaluated based on a Form Based Zoning model that has proven to decrease the amount of gross paved area needed within the construct of the Urban Village Area.
