Workshop on Climate Solutions and Ottawa’s New Official Plan

Daniel Buckles (dbuckles@sas2.net) writes:

On November 15 and 16 more than 100 people gathered for a day and a half at Bayview Yards in Kitchissippi to discuss the climate crisis and define priority actions that must be included in Ottawa’s new Official Plan. It built on the People’s Official Plan for Ottawa’s Climate Emergency, an initiative launched last April.

Kitchissippi Ward Forum – November 26

From Jeff Leiper, city councillor, https://kitchissippiward.ca/content/kitchissippi-ward-forum-november-26-2019-600-800pm-focus-planning-and-intensification

We are hosting our next Kitchissippi Ward Forum on Tuesday, November 26 from 6:00-8:00pm at the Hintonburg Community Centre (Wellington Room). This time, we would like to focus on intensification, planning and growth in our City, focusing on the new Official Plan, as well as our Westboro-based policy studies (the Westboro Interim Control By-Law Study, currently underway, and the Westboro-Dominion Planning Study, up-coming). We will have staff from the Planning department available to speak to these three studies.

We hope to see you there!
