Building a Liveable Ottawa 2031 – Community Consultation February 13

11 02 2013

The evening of Wednesday February 13, the City is holding a community consultation on the Building a Liveable Ottawa 2031 project – the revision of the Official Plan, Transportation & Infrastructure Master Plans and Cycling & Pedestrian Plans. Unlike the launching event of the project on January 29, we have been assured that the focus of the February 13 event will be to receive comments from the public in attendance. Because of the importance of the plan revisions for the future of our City, you are urged to consider participating and encouraging neighbours from your community to take part. Moreover the City is conducting an on-line survey and broad public participation is desirable.

2. Information about the February 13 event is found at http://ottawa.ca/en/city-hall/public-consultations/building-liveable-ottawa-official-plan-and-master-plan-review
Note that you are requested to RSVP, confirming your attendance (to ensure sufficient provision is made for the breakout groups for discussion).

3. General information on the revision process is found on the City website and there is a guide to documentation on the FCA website at http://www.fca-fac.ca/Misc/OPrevgen.htm.

4. Note that FCA has representatives on the “community panel” established by the City to provide advice on the project. You are invited to send your views to the FCA reps at OPreview@fca-fac.ca.

5. The FCA is considering organizing further community workshops about the plan revision project. We are working toward an event in Kanata for the West on Feb. 25 (further details to follow). Talks are underway about a workshop in Orleans (or elsewhere in the East). With respect to the central City and the South, we would like to see if the City’s consultation on Feb. 13 is adequate or if additional workshops should be considered for downtown or for the South (Barrhaven/Riverside South/Greely etc.). Again, send your comments to OPreview@fca-fac.ca.

6. Finally, please note that the next general meeting of the FCA – Federation of Citizens’ Associations – will be held the evening of Wednesday February 20 at Tanglewood Park Community Centre, 30 Woodfield Drive.
