FCA-FAC is organizing a weekend workshop on Saturday October 26 with the theme “A new Official Plan for Ottawa – Launching Community Discussion”. The workshop is open to all (although it would be helpful if attendees could register in advance).

There are two objectives for the workshop. One is to stimulate discussion among community groups about the new Official Plan project. The other is to encourage community representatives to organize similar discussions in their respective communities.

A poster publicizing the workshop is found at https://secureservercdn.net/104.238.69.231/g4t.993.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/191026wp.pdf . You are invited to distribute this to others in your community, encouraging wide participation. Participants are encouraged to look at the city’s documents entitled “Five big moves” which will serve as basis for discussion. A draft agenda for the workshop is found at https://secureservercdn.net/104.238.69.231/g4t.993.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/191026wa.pdf

Following the FCA-FAC event, an optional discussion from 1200 to 1330 about climate action, featuring a light lunch, has been organized by Greenspace Alliance for Canada’ Capital and by Ecology Ottawa. Detail is included in the draft agenda document.
