The Queen's Galley soup kitchen/restaurant/training facility proposal for Kingston's Kings Inn site could be good for a location outside the City of Kingston. To turn around Mid-Town Kingston, you need to deconcentrate the poverty level by decreasing Section 8 & low price housing in Mid-Town. This soup kitchen would continue to attract both good and bad people from other counties to Kingston. Realistically, the Mid-Town crime level would continue to grow. Also, the housing on the side streets on both sides of Broadway would continue to be converted to absentee landlord ownership. A soup kitchen at the Kings Inn site would continue to concentrate and attract poor people to Mid-Town. Please Vote NO on this proposal.
