Heron Gate Secondary Plan
Second Community Visioning Workshop 

Residents are invited to attend the second Community Visioning Workshop for the Heron Gate Secondary Plan.

At a community meeting held on January 23, Timbercreek Asset Management introduced its objective to develop a long-term vision for Heron Gate by initiating a planning exercise, known as a Secondary Plan. The plan will establish policies and a masterplan that will help guide the future development of Heron Gate, and when complete, will be a part of the City of Ottawa’s Official Plan.

Resident feedback from the first Community Visioning Workshop, which took place on February 24 was compiled, and the summary included some great comments, creative thinking, and sustainable ideas.

The next workshop will build on those ideas by exploring some important principles of planning, urban design, streetscapes and community parks. Your feedback will assist in shaping a draft concept plan, which will be presented to residents at a future community meeting.

By attending, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the secondary planning process, to ask the project team questions and share your ideas for the site’s future design.

Notice of Community Meeting
 Heron Gate Secondary Plan
Project Introduction and Community Engagement

As you may be aware, Timbercreek Communities is currently constructing new rental apartment buildings, named “HG7”, at the corner of Heron Road and Sandalwood Drive. Local residents have already participated by providing valuable input throughout the site plan process for this property. In listening to the varying opinions, it became apparent to me that a masterplan for the entire property was essential before any further development should occur at Heron Gate.

Timbercreek agreed, and is therefore initiating a developer-led Secondary Plan process to develop a long-term vision for the future of Heron Gate. This planning exercise will proceed under the direction of the City of Ottawa Planning Department, in conjunction with my office.

A Secondary Plan is a sub-plan of the City of Ottawa’s Official Plan. It establishes policies that help guide future development on the entire property. Public consultation is key to this planning process. Opinions, ideas and input from local residents will help shape the plan as it evolves through the stages, from early concepts to approval of a final masterplan.

As such, I am hosting an open house for residents of Heron Gate and the surrounding community to receive introductory information, details of the process moving forward, and to begin a conversation that I hope will result in some great ideas for Heron Gate.

Representatives and the consulting team from Timbercreek, and the City Planning Department will be on hand to take your questions and preliminary feedback.

Please plan to attend:

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018 at 7 –  8:30 p.m. | Presentation at 7:30 p.m.
Featherston Public School | Gym
1801 Featherston Drive

As always, do not hesitate to email or call my office at 613-580-2488 should you require additional information. I hope to see you on the 23rd so that we may begin to work together to consider a vision for this important neighbourhood in our community.
