City of Ottawa staff have recently released a high level policy directions document for the New Official Plan. This document will be presented to Planning Committee at the upcoming session starting at 9:30am on August 22, 2019 at City Hall.
Beyond that, City Planning staff are asking for community resident input and comments on The 5 Big Moves by the end of September.
The 5 Big Moves are:
- Growth Management
- Urban and Community Design
- Climate, Energy and Public Health
- Economic Development
All of these areas of focus are important to the future growth of our city. As an urban community, each of the policy directions in Urban and Community Design will have significant effects on Old Ottawa South. Your input is critical to our neighbourhood's future success.
Please review the City document and participate by responding with your comments. Ottawa is what we make it. Whether your focus is trees, heritage, growth management, public transportation, or other topics, the time to speak and be heard is now.
