On Thursday, August 12th, I received notice that the City had postponed the tabling of the draft New Official Plan to October 15th. This is good news for residents. Following consultation with the public, the City has made changes to the draft New OP and residents need time to review it and comment on it in advance of Committee and Council consideration.
There is still much work to do.
Please continue to send me your comments at Bayward@Ottawa.ca, as well as, to the New OP team at NewOP@ottawa.ca. They are still listening and accepting comments.
The 21 one-pagers on key themes found in the New Official Plan have also been updated and can be found here.
