Planning and Zoning Committee
As Ottawa’s physical structure develops and evolves, communities are faced with challenges. Some are specific to the neighbourhood; while FCA can sometimes provide advice or support, the directly affected community must take the lead. In other cases, there are city-wide issues involved and FCA works to formulate a community viewpoint.
Since 2014, the planning and zoning committee has been very active in providing community input on the official plan and the two major efforts underway to review the bylaws that govern what is permissible infill — Infill1 and Infill2.
In the process of working on planning issues, the committee has evolved into a planning & zoning network involving more than 50 members from many communities. To check out the activities, click on the planning and zoning categories under committees.
