The City of Ottawa recently retained Maclaren Municipal Consulting to identify policy options that can be considered to deal with housing issues in the area. MMC has just published two policy options papers on ottawa.ca and are asking for residents feedback/recommendations before finalizing their report.
• Housing Conditions Policy Options – This paper examines various options for regulating rental housing.
• Short-Term Rental Policy Options – This paper examines options for regulating short-term rental services such as Airbnb and VRBO.
Residents are invited to review the policy options papers and complete two short surveys:
• Housing Conditions Policy Options
• Short-Term Rental Policy Options
The deadline for completion of the surveys will be September 4, 2019.
