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. It is a great means of keeping our community educated and up-to-date on all things that are going on in Stittsville.
A full detailed invitation with agenda is available for review here.
The event will take place from 6:30-9:30 Thursday, April 6th at the Goulbourn Recreational Complex Hall A and will provide a condensed introduction with materials covered in the City’s Planning Primer 1 and 2. City’s Planning staff will also be explaining a variety of common topics specific to Stittsville including the process behind tree removal, the implementation of the Fernbank Community Design Plan (CDP), and an overview of the Ontario Municipal Board’s appeal process, to name a few.
Seating is limited and will be provided on a first come, first serve basis. For accommodation requests, please email me at Shad.Qadri@ottawa.ca by March 31, 2017.
In advance of the Primer, I would also 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 and Plan of Condominium.
