Update on Ottawa Mosque Site and Landscape Plans

This is an update to last year’s May 25th notice.

  • Last May, we were notified that the previously approved site plan and landscape plan for the Ottawa Mosque on 251 Northwestern, which had lapsed due to lack of funds, would go forward.
  • At that time, we posted the site and landscape plans and the following information on the web site.
    • Part B on the landscape plan pertains to the new lands, which are not currently landscaped.
    • The plan is to landscape them now and also to build catch basins.
    • Since this was previously reviewed and approved, including by Champlain Park Community Association (CPCA), the City of Ottawa does not feel another public review is required.
    • However, at our request, they did allow our CPCA Development Committee to view it again, as it has been dormant since 2008.
    • The CPCA Development Committee thinks the attached landscape plan, which includes paving, parking space markings and plantings, including a variety of trees, will greatly enhance the site.
  • The plans now are due to go to City Council for final approval.

  1. On a related note, is the adjacent Northwestern United Church property going to be sold or redeveloped soon? Not sure if it is a rumour, since I wasn’t able to dig up any news items about a sale.
