Archaeology in a Municipal Planning Context: The City of Kingston Archaeological Planning process (2005-2011)
Author(s): Marcus Letourneau
Archaeology in the Province of Ontario (Canada) is a matter of provincial interest. However, the approval agents for most planning works are local municipalities. In response to provincial requirements, the Corporation of the City of Kingston (Ontario) embarked on a multi-year archaeological plan¬ning project designed to integrate archaeology into not only the land-use and heritage conservation approvals processes, but also into municipal operations. The project resulted in the development of new policies, by-laws and Archaeological Master Plan; new municipal processes; and, a draft Urgent Archaeological Protocol. However, there were also a number of challenges to the project that illustrate issues related to integrating archaeology into municipal policies and processes. This presentation will discuss the Ontario planning and heritage context, a brief history of archaeological work in Kingston and the Archaeological Planning project; and some of the challenges, lessons, products and innovations.
