[Future Scott Street]

Scott Street Complete Street

December 3, 2013

Dear Residents of Hintonburg, Mechanicsville, Wellington Village and Champlain Park,

Throughout the Scott Street Community Design Plan process, I heard from hundreds of residents and while there were many opinions on other issues, people were united in their desire for a complete street for Scott Street. That’s why improving Scott Street has been identified as a community benefit priority in the Scott Street Community Design Plan to be considered by Planning Committee on December 10th.

I committed to you at our last public meeting on November 13th that I would ensure that the public benefit components, including a complete street on Scott, would become a reality, and today we took the first step toward that reality.

Today at the City’s Finance and Economic Development Committee (FEDCO), I successfully had a motion passed that will be the first step toward a complete street for Scott Street. The motion borrows $1,000,000 from the City’s Cash-in-lieu of parkland city-wide fund, to be repaid from Section 37 benefits from development in the Scott Street area. The motion had to be walked-on today because the next FEDCO meeting is not until February, and such a delay would have threatened the viability of the initiative.

The LRT will already be paying to move the poles for their detour. These funds will be used to top up the existing LRT budget to upgrade the poles to self-supporting poles, removing guy wires from the green boulevard on the north side of Scott, allowing for a safe and appropriately designed cycling track and pedestrian facilities.

This creates the necessary conditions for a complete street on Scott Street, allowing us to move forward quickly after LRT construction is complete.

I want to thank you all once again for your hours of volunteer time spent working with us on the Scott Street CDP, and I look forward to continue working with you to make the vision for this area a reality.

You can review the motion below.

Community Meeting for the Scott Street Community Design Plan (CDP)

Your community is changing…let’s talk about it!

Wednesday, November 13, 2013
Hintonburg Community Centre, 1064 Wellington Street West
Extra time has been added to allow you to view the draft CDP and provide your feedback
3 to 8 p.m. with a short presentation at 4:30 p.m. and a repeat presentation at 7 p.m.

Come out to hear about the Scott Street CDP, drop by on your way home from work or in the evening. The open house will provide you with the opportunity to hear about the draft CDP and have one on one conversations with City staff and Urban Strategies Inc., the urban design consultant hired by the City of Ottawa to undertake the Scott Street CDP.

The Draft CDP
The CDP has been developing since the public meetings in May and June. In October we had a meeting to present the draft strategies for the CDP. This open house will be the release of the draft CDP.

The draft CDP will address these key issues:

  • Scott Street – the design of Scott Street after the Light Rail Transit (LRT) construction is completed
  • Tall Buildings and other uses – the location of future tall buildings and uses within the CDP area
  • Neighbourhood focus – the future of the residential neighbourhoods

No registration is required, just drop-in at any time. Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. If you require special accommodation, please call 3-1-1 or e-mail before the event.

Réunion communautaire concernant le Plan de conception communautaire (PCC) de la rue Scott

Votre communauté se transforme… parlons-en.

Mercredi 13 novembre 2013
Centre communautaire Hintonburg, 1064, rue Wellington Ouest
Du temps supplémentaire a été ajouté afin de vous permettre de consulter le PCC préliminaire et de fournir vos commentaires
de 15 h à 20 h, une brève présentation étant prévue à 16 h 30 et de nouveau à 19 h.

Venez vous renseigner au sujet du PCC de la rue Scott. Passez en rentrant chez vous ou dans la soirée. La séance portes ouvertes vous donnera l’occasion d’en apprendre davantage sur le PCC préliminaire et de discuter personnellement avec les employés de la Ville et d’Urban Strategies Inc., la société d’urbanistes-conseils dont la Ville d’Ottawa a retenu les services pour l’élaboration du PCC de la rue Scott.

La version provisoire du PCC
Le PCC est en préparation depuis les réunions publiques tenues en mai et juin derniers. En octobre, nous avons organisé une réunion pour présenter les stratégies provisoires du PCC. La diffusion du PCC préliminaire aura lieu à cette séance portes ouvertes.

La version provisoire du PCC comporte trois volets :

  • La rue Scott : la configuration de la rue Scott une fois le réseau de transport par train léger construit;
  • Les bâtiments de grande hauteur et autres utilisations : la répartition des futurs bâtiments de grande hauteur et des utilisations dans le secteur visé par le PCC;

La mise en valeur des quartiers : l’avenir des quartiers résidentiels.

Aucune inscription n’est exigée, vous pouvez vous joindre à la réunion à tout moment. L’accessibilité est une préoccupation majeure pour la Ville d’Ottawa. Si vous avez besoin d’accommodements particuliers, n’hésitez pas à composer le 3-1-1 ou à envoyer un courriel à l’adresse avant la tenue de la séance.
