The City will not postpone the vote on the new Official Plan — it is is scheduled for this fall — as requested by the WCA and the Federation of Citizens’ Association (FCA), but Planning general manager Stephen Willis told council in a memo last week that the public engagement on the official plan is “far surpassing anything we had projected.” He has promised there will be adjustments made to the plan.
Read the story here:
Don’t forget a city-led online question-and-answer session on the official plan is scheduled for tonight. More information can be found on the city’s website at engage.ottawa.ca/the-new-official-plan.
This spring and summer will present further opportunities to get our points across. Councillor Leiper has committed to holding a forum this spring on this issue.
Thank you to all those who provided comments and support. Stay tuned …
