Notice of Adoption of Local Law

Town of Kingston

The Town of Kingston Town Board has adopted Local Law 6 of 2015, which rezones a +/-110 acre parcel located on Route 28 from the Mixed-Use Residential 1 (MU-1) zoning district to the Mixed-Use Residential 2 (MU-2) zoning district, and amends the Zoning Law to: define an Active Auto Recycling Facility; describe the amended MU-1 and MU-2 zoning districts; allow an Active Auto Recycling Facility by special permit;  set forth the standards for approving such use in those zoning districts where it is allowed; provide area and bulk regulations for that use; and allow such uses in the MU-2 zoning district.  Prior to adopting the local law, the Town Board, as lead agency, determined that the amendments were a Type I action, but that the action will not have a significant adverse environmental impact and that preparation of an environment impact statement will not be required.


Welcome to Swift911TM

 In our efforts to provide more reliable communication with residents and businesses in the Town, we have implemented Swiftreach Networks, Inc. as our Emergency Notification service provider.   Swift911™, in its simplest form, is a system that makes phone calls to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information.  The system also allows notification via email and text messages.  All the notifications you receive will be identified as coming from the Town of Kingston.

If you have a wired phone in your home (a landline), your number is already in the system.  If you would like to receive notices on your cell phone, as either voice or text messages, and/or you would like to receive email alerts, CLICK HERE.  You only need to do this once.
