The Board of Directors of the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning has heard the concerns expressed by the owners of the Juniper Café, as well as the Tett Centre staff and members of the Kingston community, about the future of the Juniper Café at the Tett.

Our Board met today with City staff regarding the Juniper Café, and made significant progress.

The Board has now directed City staff to facilitate a solution, a solution which is outlined in a report to Council available online at: https://www.cityofkingston.ca/documents/10180/31919079/City-Council_Meet...
