Ward Council on Official Plan
Ward 17 Meeting on New Official Plan--We Need Your Feedback!
The draft New Official Plan was released at the end of November and provides a high-level overview of how the city will manage intensification, transportation, and the environment over the next 30 years. It’s a dense document and the City has provided 21 one-pagers on various topics to break it down. You can offer your feedback though tailored forms linked to these one-pagers, or more generally to the [email protected]. Look out for an excellent presentation by the Old Ottawa South Community Association Planning Committee on some major issues in the new OP, to be posted shortly on their website at: oldottawasouth.ca/. The feedback deadline is coming up fast on February 17, and the Community Association feedback deadline has been extended until March 12.
Our office will be hosting a meeting on the new OP on February 11 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. To start, City staff will give a brief presentation, and then we’ll split up into breakout rooms to discuss more detailed issues by community. All are welcome to attend. The meeting is geared more toward focused discussion than a general overview, so you will benefit by reading some of the material beforehand.
