Old Ottawa South and other inner urban areas are slated to provide housing for many of the 400,000 new residents expected in Ottawa over the 25-year term of the new Official Plan. What will that look like? Where will we do it? How will we get there?
OSCA’s Planning and Zoning Committee (‘P&Z’) prepared a slide presentation about the City’s New Official Plan (‘OP’) and presented it in a Zoom meeting on September 27, 2021. You can view here the OSCA P&Z Community Presentation 21 09 27.
Your feedback is requested by October 13, 2021.
The full recording of the Zoom meeting, including the Q&A at the end, can be found here on OSCA’s YouTube channel.
Additional information on the City of Ottawa New Official Plan can be found on the Engage Ottawa website.
Also, here is a one-pager that references the actual policies in the Official Plan which may affect our community: Official Plan Impacts on Old Ottawa South Community Reference Sections
