We have added a new resource page on the Growth Management Strategy.
On Monday, May 11, 2020, the City of Ottawa will a Joint Planning Committee and Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee – Special Meeting on the Ottawa Growth Management plan. They will consider the recommendations from staff on the 3 visions of growth management. After their meeting, their recommendation will go to the full council for discussion at the end of May.
The Urban boundary line will guide how the city manages development decisions over the next couple of decades. The official FCA position is that No Boundary Expansion best satisfies the objectives of our Provincial Policy Statement (PPS). City staff have recommend the 3rd option which will add a large area of land as within the urban boundary for future development.
The FCA position is shown on that page. You can find the presentation we will be making at the meeting. You can also find letters from other community associations on this issue and some videos from various events around the city. We also included links to the key city documents for this meeting.
