Upcoming Stittsville Planning Primer


As announced in a previous newsletter, my office is working with the City’s Planning Department to bring a Planning Primer event to Stittsville.


We are one of the fastest growing areas of the City with many development applications on the go.  I am frequently posting information regarding development projects in Stittsville to keep the community informed of what is being planned in the community. It can sometimes be overwhelming to those unfamiliar with just how the planning process works. A Planning Primer is the perfect opportunity for residents and community associations to learn about the necessary background in understanding the development process.


The date of the event is tentatively set for Thursday, April 6th with confirmation and more details to follow in next week’s column.


In advance of the Primer, I would like to take a moment to provide residents with some information pertaining to how planning is conducted within the City of Ottawa.


This week, I encourage residents to review some background information on what is a Site Plan, Plan of Subdivision, or a Zoning By-law Amendment


I look forward to providing more details on the Planning Primer in my newsletter next week.
