Redevelopment at higher densities—or, intensification—is targeted for:
- Traditional mainstreets in the Inner Urban Area such as Richmond Road
- Arterial mainstreets such as portions of Carling Avenue, St. Laurent Boulevard Merivale Road and Bank Street
- Key rapid transit stations such as Confederation Line between Blair and Hurdman plus stations on Stage 2 LRT such as Baseline-Woodroffe and Confederation Heights.
- The Eastern Subwatersheds Stormwater Management Study will look at a combination of measures, from controls on individual residential lots through to end-of-pipe ponds and wetlands sites to yield a long-term plan to improve the health of the water in the subwatershed and the Ottawa River. The study area is roughly bounded by Trim Road to the east, the Greenbelt to the south, Conroy Road to the west and the Ottawa River to the north. The Eastern Subwatersheds includes all the lands that drain to Taylor Creek, Bilberry Creek, Voyageur Creek, and Green’s Creek and its tributaries within the urban area.
- Cleary and New Orchard Planning Study – The purpose of this study is to undertake a review of the lands in the vicinity of the future Cleary and New Orchard LRT stations to determine appropriate redevelopment in the context of surrounding mature neighbourhoods.
- Richmond Road Complete Street Implementation – The City of Ottawa’s 2013 Transportation Master Plan has a Complete Streets component that aims to redesign certain city streets to ensure they meet the needs of all people, whether they choose to walk, bike, drive or take public transit. It will offer safety, comfort and mobility for all users, while also encouraging healthier, cleaner living by making it easier to walk or bike.
- O-Train Confederation Line Light Rail Transit (LRT) Stage 2 Station Connectivity – A Connectivity Study was initiated to ensure that there were strong community multi-use pathway and sidewalk connections to each Stage 2 Light Rail Transit (LRT) station to encourage transit use.
- The Confederation Line West extension project will add 13.5 km of rail and 10 new or converted rapid transit stations to the City’s overall light rail transit (LRT) network at Bayshore, Pinecrest, Queensview, Baseline, Iris, Lincoln Fields, New Orchard, Cleary, Dominion and Westboro.
- Bayshore to Moodie LRT As part of planning for Stage 2 the Light Rail Transit (LRT) program, an opportunity has been identified to extend LRT from the current planned western terminus of the Confederation Line (Bayshore Station), approximately 2.5 km further west to Moodie Drive, with one station located east of Moodie Drive at Corkstown Road and a Light Maintenance and Storage Facility in the north-west quadrant of Moodie Drive and Corkstown Road
- Cedarview Pathway The City is planning to improve sections of the Holly Acres / Cedarview multi-use pathway between Richmond Road and Bruin Road. This is project number twelve in the Community Connectivity Projects.
