From the NCC: Share your ideas for the improvements of Westboro Beach

From the National Capital Commission:

************************************************************************************

What are your ideas for the improvements of Westboro Beach?

This project is part of the Ottawa River South Shore Riverfront Park Plan, which aims to reconnect people and communities to the Ottawa River. The plan includes over 200 hectares of riverfront lands between LeBreton Flats, the mouth of the Pinecrest Creek corridor and the Mud Lake Conservation Area. The Westboro Beach area redevelopment project will be one of the first steps in making this plan a reality.

This workshop will focus on

  • The design of a new pavilion and landscaping
  • Enhanced, year-round experiences for beachgoers and site users
  • Opportunities to revitalize and celebrate the beach’s built heritage

From the City: Westboro-Dominion Planning Study

9 04 2019

Please see the following information from the City:

**********************************************************************

This email is to let you know that the City of Ottawa is undertaking a review of planning policies and zoning for lands near the Westboro and Dominion Light Rail Transit (LRT) stations. You can visit the project website, Ottawa.ca/WestboroDominionStudy for more information including a short Discussion Paper on the main issues we’ll be reviewing.

Please note: this study should not be confused with the the planning study currently underway for the area south of Byron Avenue, as a result of Interim Control By-law 2018-362. For information on that study, please contact Robert Sandercott at robert.sandercott@ottawa.ca.

The Richmond Road-Westboro Secondary Plan (RRWSP) was adopted in 2008 and provides planning guidance to a large area extending from Island Park Drive in the east to the Sir John A. MacDonald parkway in the west. However, in recent years, development pressure on lands close to the new Westboro and Dominion Light Rail Transit stations has underscored the need for more clarity in that area.

Accordingly, the Westboro-Dominion Planning Study will address in greater detail those lands that are generally:

  • West of Island Park Drive
  • North of Byron Avenue
  • East of Dominion Street, and
  • South of the Transitway and Lanark Avenue.

The Westboro-Dominion Planning Study will not seek to replace the broader Richmond Road-Westboro Secondary Plan (RRWSP.) Rather, it will review, amend and/or expand the policies of the Richmond Road-Westboro plan only as they relate to the lands described above.
