Upcoming Public Consultation on Small Scale Infill Housing

The City’s Planning and Growth Management Department is undertaking a study of small scale, residential infill housing.  The work stems from concerns expressed by citizens and community groups about the impacts of new infill housing on their neighbourhoods.

The study has focussed on inner city wards (12, 13, 14, 15 and 17) and the Councillors in these wards have been informed about the project.  Initial findings suggest that there are opportunities to improve the local impact of small scale infill.   You can read more about the findings at ottawa.ca/infill.

The City will be hosting a series of public consultation meetings to present the findings and explore possible solutions to address patterns of infill housing that appear to have a negative impact on neighbourhoods.   The public consultation dates are:

Monday, February 7th (7 – 9pm)

St.  Bartholomew’s Church – 125 MacKay St.

Thursday, February 17th (7 – 9pm)

Connaught Public School (Gym) – 1149 Gladstone Ave.

Tuesday, February 22nd (7:15 – 9:15pm)

St.  Matthew’s Church – 217 First Ave.

Thursday, February 24th (7 – 9pm)

Festival Control (City Hall)

*Please note that the content of each of the four meetings will be exactly the same.

For more information, please contact Selma Hassan at the City of Ottawa (580-2424, ext. 25192).
