Here is an update on the project to develop an Urban Forest Management Plan. The city-wide high level of public interest in protecting what is left of the urban forest, and reversing the unsustainable, severe, cumulative losses to the tree canopy that occurred during the past seven years, has crystalized around this project.

The Phase I Stakeholder Consultation Report summarising the input from last fall’s public consultations is now posted on the Forestry Web page.

I am writing to give you an update on the City of Ottawa’s Urban Forest Management Plan.

Our consultants have been working on the draft plan throughout the winter and early spring. It will be submitted to city staff for review soon. We will make it available to the public later this summer in preparation for the Phase 2 consultations which will take place in late September / early October. The dates for the Phase 2 consultations will be finalized early this summer.

Please keep your eye on for the draft plan and the dates for the consultations this fall. The Phase 1 Stakeholder Consultation Report is also available there. The report outlines the feedback collected at the visioning sessions that were held last November and through the surveys submitted at that time.

I will send the information about the fall consultations to this list, as soon as we’ve got our plans finalized.

Thank you for your continued interest in this important project.
