New Official Plan

Thank you for continuing to engage with me and Planning staff via NewOP@Ottawa.ca on the Official Plan review process. Over the past year, we’ve gained significant and beneficial changes in this important document that will affect Alta Vista. Together, among other achievements, we’ve attained;

  • An Outer Urban designation from Inner Urban for a majority of Alta Vista
  • The right to build single-family homes
  • Greater tree protections for our neighbourhoods
  • Beneficial active transportation policies

As we continue to dive into the nuances of the current draft I continue to connect residents with Planning Staff to continue those discussions, to get clarity, and to further inform our neighbours.

Important dates:

  • Open House – September 29
  • Joint Committee – October 14
  • City Council – October 27

Pending Council and approval by the Province, a 2-to-3 year Zoning Bylaw Review will be initiated which will provide further details on how Ottawa plans to grow over the coming decades. There will be a large community consultation component to the Zoning Review and I look forward to continuing our discussions.
