Lansdowne Park Consultations

The City of Ottawa will be holding six consultation sessions on the proposed plan to redevelop Lansdowne Park.  At this time, it is anticipated that these meetings will consist of a display of story boards and the opportunity for one-on-one discussion with the project proponents and staff.  There is no plan for a formal presentation with formal questions.

The consultation on Monday October 5 at Tom Brown Arena (in Kitchissippi Ward), which is being organized by Councillor Leadman, may be the only exception as Councillor Leadman is planning on including a formal question and answer period. It is important that you have your say on this project given that it will affect a central part of Ottawa and will require the City taking on an additional $120 mln. in debt.

The locations of the meetings are:

Monday, September 28, 6 to 9 p.m.
Lansdowne Park, Salon A
1015 Bank Street

Tuesday, September 29, 6 to 9 p.m.
Ron Maslin Playhouse, Lobby
1 Ron Maslin Way, Kanata

Wednesday, September 30, 6 to 9 p.m.
Ottawa City Hall, Jean Pigott Place
110 Laurier Avenue West

Thursday, October 1, 6 to 9 p.m.
Jim Durrell Complex, Elwood Hall
1265 Walkley Road

Monday, October 5, 6 to 9 p.m.
Tom Brown Arena, Hall
141 Bayview Road

Tuesday, October 6, 6 to 9 p.m.
Shenkman Arts Centre, Lower Lobby
245 Centrum Boulevard, Orleans

In addition to public meetings, the City will be using the Ottawa Talks e-consultation platform starting on September 28 to engage residents in online discussion of Lansdowne Partnership Plan. This will provide the public with the opportunity to share information and opinions, and to pose questions 24/7 on the City’s website.

Further information on this proposed project (both pro and con) can be found at the following websites:
