OMB Changes: Town Hall Discussion with the Honorable Yasir Naqvi, MPP (Ottawa Centre)

6 03 2018

From the Honorable Yasir Naqvi, MPP (Ottawa Centre) and Attorney General:

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

As you know, our government recently passed the Building Better Communities and Conserving Watersheds Act, 2017. This legislation replaced the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) with the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal, which will help ensure that proceedings before the tribunal are faster, fairer and more affordable.

We want to make sure that we do everything possible to give people a stronger voice in the planning of their own communities. So, I am pleased to invite you to a town hall discussion on Saturday, March 10, 2018 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm at the Churchill Seniors Recreation Centre, 345 Richmond Road, Ottawa.

I am looking forward to sharing an update on the legislation, and hearing your questions and feedback. If you would like to participate in this session, or need more information, please contact Ben Charlebois by email at Ben.Charlebois@ontario.ca.

Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,

Yasir Naqvi

MPP, Ottawa Centre

Attorney General

Announcement: Big Trees of Kitchissippi

6 02 2018

This is an announcement from Big Trees of Kitchissippi:

Approved by city council in June 2017, the municipality’s Urban Forest Management Plan mandates a review of its 2009 Urban Tree Conservation By-law.

This by-law is important because Part III of the by-law purports to “conserve” larger trees on private property in the urban core. Recommendation #9 (PDF) from the UFMP describes the broad scope of an upcoming by-law review slated to begin this year.

When the city begins its official review of the by-law, it may convene public consultations. Let’s be ready to share our views on how this by-law can be better.

Come to a public meeting to develop and discuss citizen-led changes to the by-law. The meeting will offer participants a chance to be part of a focused discussion aimed at teasing out the issues and vision that we, as residents of the ward, have for the by-law.

When?  Saturday, March 3, 2018 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Where? Champlain Park fieldhouse, 140 Cowley Ave.

It will be crucial to communicate the list of suggestions we produce to our ward’s councillor, Jeff Leiper. At the March 3 meeting, we’ll also talk about how do that.

Mark your calendar, and plan to attend this event on March 3.
