The City of Ottawa has received a concurrent Plan of Subdivision and Zoning By-law Amendment application to permit the development of a 196-unit subdivision comprised of 57 single-detached dwellings, 101 townhomes and 38 back-to-back townhomes.
The property is located at the northeast corner of Stittsville Main Street and Maple Grove Road within the Kanata West Concept Plan. The site is approximately 7.58 hectares and is currently vacant with groupings of tree coverage. The property is surrounded by vacant lands to the north, east and west, existing low-rise residential subdivision to the south and one single-detached home immediately to the east along Maple Grove Road. On the vacant land directly north of the site, there is currently an active subdivision application by Cavanagh / Shenkman, municipally addressed as 195 Huntmar Drive.
The land is currently zoned Development Reserve Zone (DR) and designated as General Urban Area in the City’s Official Plan. The DR zoning recognizes lands intended for future urban development in area designated as General Urban Area of the City’s Official Plan. The applicant is proposing to rezone the lands to Residential Third Density Zone, Subzone Z (R3Z) and Parks and Open Space Zone (O1) to permit the development of the proposed subdivision. The proposed R3Z zoning allows a mix of residential building forms ranging from detached to townhouse dwellings and the O1 zoning permits the development of a park within the site.
A concurrent Plan of Subdivision application was also submitted to permit the development of a 196-unit subdivision comprised of 57 single-detached dwellings, 101 townhomes and 38 back-to-back townhomes. As part of this subdivison, there is a 0.68 hectare park proposed at the northeast corner of the site. The park will be built as a “parkette” park type and transferred to the City as a requirement of parkland dedication. The street network shown on the draft plan of subdivision proposes a grid-pattern layout which includes seven local roads used to service the site. There will be five accesses into the subdivision, one on Maple Grove Road, three along the future Stittsville Main Street extension to the west, and one access from the future Kanata West Main Street to the north.
