2009 Planning Primer Program

19 12 2008

This just in from the City of Ottawa. There was a lot of interest in this (free!) program last year. Read on.

Planning Primer I
 January 17 or January 19, 2009
Festival Plaza, Main Floor City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West
8:30 a.m. to 12 noon
Register here before January 14, 2009

Registration is limited to 40 participants.

The Infrastructure Services and Community Sustainability Department is offering the Planning Primer Program to help residents become more aware of, and more involved in, the land-use planning process.

The program is a series of half-day courses. The series includes two core courses and two elective courses.

The core courses, called Primer I and Primer II, describe the legislative and policy basis under which land-use planning decisions are made, the way policy documents are amended and how to make a development application.

In 2009, elective courses will include a session on urban design and another on heritage planning.

To make the most of the information being presented, residents must attend the Primer I course before attending Primer II and attend both the Primer I and II courses before attending an elective course. Participants who attend Primer I and Primer II and two elective courses will receive a Certificate of Completion.

The program aims to:

  • Build and maintain a strong working relationship and understanding between the City of Ottawa and communities
  • Provide resources and teach skills to aid residents participating in the land-use planning process

Who is invited to attend?
All members of the public including developers, real estate agents, lawyers, builders and community representatives are invited to attend.
