This paper was written for both City staff and Rideau-Rockcliffe constituents to clearly outline my positions concerning the draft Official Plan.
The new Official Plan is the most important initiative that the City of Ottawa will undertake this term of Council. The City’s Official Plan is the foundational document for everything related to planning and development in the City and forms the basis for all other policies regarding land use. The new Plan will determine how the City evolves over the next quarter century. It will be the foundation concerning the type of City, neighbourhoods, communities, and environment we leave for the next generation.
