FCA-FAC is organizing a weekend workshop the morning of Saturday November 30 at Tom Brown Arena. The Transportation Master Plan is a companion document to the City’s Official Plan, which outlines how people & goods will move in our city – on foot, by bike, by bus/LRT, by vehicle. It plans where pedestrian, cycling, transit & road networks will go (and when, and what priority). Find out about the TMP Review process, emerging trends, vision for the future, how to contribute.

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/166.62.113.120/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/166.62.113.120/g4t.993.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/191026wa.pdf

The City of Ottawa’s current Transportation Master Plan (TMP) was approved in 2013, based on 2006 census information, 2011 traffic data, background reports and public consultation. It contains targets and strategies regarding walking, cycling, transit and vehicles for 2031. The City originally intended to update the TMP for 2018, but now does not expect to begin the process to update the TMP until 2021.

On Saturday April 8, 2017 (8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. @ Tom Brown Arena, 141 Bayview rd.) the FCA Transportation Committee will hold a half-day workshop on building a new Transportation Master Plan for our city. Please see the attached Agenda or click on it here:
