After three years of planning and consultation, the City of Ottawa is now commencing the formal approval process for the development of a new mixed-use community at the Former CFB Rockcliffe.
The public consultation process for the Former CFB Rockcliffe Community Design Plan (CDP), which Canada Lands Company started in Fall 2012, resulted in broad consensus on a draft preferred plan for the CDP in June 2014. The basic framework, design, and principles guiding the CDP have not changed since that time. Canada Lands Company has continued to collaborate directly with City departments and other agencies over the past year to address the technical requirements for the necessary development approvals. In February 2015, the City’s Technical Advisory Committee began its full review of the draft CDP and more than 30 supporting studies. The CDP is now ready for City’s official public review and approval process.
In addition to the CDP revisions, Canada Lands Company submitted draft plan of subdivision and zoning applications to the City of Ottawa on March 31, 2015. As part of the subdivision approval process, the City of Ottawa will host a public meeting to be held from:
- 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 25,
- at East Gate Alliance Church, 550 Codd’s Road, Ottawa
At this meeting, Canada Lands Company will be prepared to present information and answer questions about the CDP, subdivision, and the other applications we have submitted. City of Ottawa staff will also present information on the subdivision approval process, including future opportunities for the public to provide comments directly to the City of Ottawa.
The agenda for the June 25 meeting will be:
- 6:30 p.m. – Doors Open
- 7:00 p.m. – Presentation
- 7:30 – 8:30 – Question and Answer period to be moderated by Ward 13 Councillor Tobi Nussbaum
- 8:30 – Public Meeting continues with informal discussion
