Tunney’s Pasture Redevelopment Input – Reminder

We’d like to take a moment to remind our neighbours that there is still time to apply to join the Tunney’s Pasture Communities Perspectives Group (CPG) to play a supporting role in the redevelopment of Tunney’s Pasture.  

Until August 26, any organization or individual that represents community interests can apply to take part in this small group hosted by Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) and Canada Lands Company (CLC). Of course, Neighbours for Tunney’s shares the view that we’d like to ensure that a diverse variety of interests and perspectives are considered throughout the redevelopment of the non-federal development blocks at Tunney’s Pasture. 

Please consider the unique contributions that you could make and visit the CPG application form tab to learn more and complete the application.

We also encourage all local residents, community groups and stakeholders to explore these Engagement resources to follow the project and the consultation process. 

Finally, please continue to spread the word and invite others to join our ever-growing network of Neighbours for Tunney’s via email request to: NeighboursforTunneys@gmail.com

Your Neighbours for Tunney’s working group


Tunney’s Pasture Redevelopment Q&A – June 20

Tunney’s Pasture Redevelopment Project: Invitation to Participate

Canada Lands Company (CLC) and Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) were very pleased to see the high degree of participation in our workshops of May 25 and 26, during which attendees provided input into the development of “community values” that will inform the redevelopment of Tunney’s Pasture.

And, we would also like to give members of the community another opportunity to have their questions answered during a virtual “Questions and Answers Coffee House” meeting that we will hold from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Monday, June 20. To register, please visit: https://engage.clc-sic.ca/tunney-s-pasture-vision-to-reality.

Canada Lands and PSPC are committed to meaningful engagement and we greatly appreciate your interest in this project. We strongly believe the community’s involvement will lead to a better outcome for the transformation of Tunney’s Pasture.

Tunney’s Pasture Redevelopment Workshops – May 25, 26

Following on from last year’s Tunney’s Pasture Redevelopment Survey

In 2014, the National Capital Commission finalized and endorsed the Tunney’s Pasture Master Plan (TPMP). The Canada Lands Company (CLC) – a federal Crown corporation – is managing the transformation: https://www.clc-sic.ca/real-estate/tunneys-pasture. CLC is seeking your input to this project. Please see the invitation to register for next week’s workshop.

Thanks, Heather

Registration open for workshops on the future of Tunney’s Pasture

Registration is now open for two virtual workshops to gather the public’s input on the transformation of Tunney’s Pasture from a single-use employment centre into a vibrant transit-oriented and sustainable mixed-use community that is integrated with surrounding neighbourhoods, while maintaining a strong federal presence.

Blasting at Tunney’s Pasture

Just so you know what’s making that loud thump noise every few hours, and other sound effects, we received this message from Steph at councillor Jeff Leiper’s office…

With help from Yasir’s office, our message got through to the government team overseeing the construction at the heating/cooling plant at Tunney’s currently. We asked about the work, to be sure, and any ways to get a timeline/notifications on the work. Here’s the response we got:

“From now until the end of March 2022, the construction team will be conducting controlled blasts at the site on weekdays from 8:00 to 4:00 Monday to Thursday and from 8:00 to 1:00 on Fridays. There will be no more than one per hour. From time to time there may be hoe ramming done on site as well to break up rock.

Members of the public interested in learning more about the ESAP project or asking us a question by email should visit https://nationalcapitaldistrictenergy.ca. There is also a contact us page on the site which allows people to ask questions directly to the construction team.”

I would suggest those with concerns get directly in contact with them through that page. I suspect the major disruption is coming from the hoe-ramming, in addition to the blasting. I know our power is limited in a project like this, but I nonetheless wanted to pass on the information to you and neighbours as soon as we got it.

Tunney’s Pasture Redevelopment Update

Subject: Tunney’s Pasture Redevelopment: FYI for the Board and for posting on the CPCA website
Date: Mon, 21 Jun 2021 16:19:45 -0400
From: Heather Pearl

On April 5, a short history of the Tunney’s Pasture redevelopment plans was posted on the CPCA website.  All Champlain Park residents were invited to complete a Survey, developed by the Wellington Village Community Association (WVCA).  The survey results are in, a web page has been created, the working group is growing and everyone is invited to participate.  Here is a brief recap:

Tunney’s Pasture redevelopment plans have been in the works for some time. This massive federal government project has been developed under a cone of silence. Plans are now at an advanced stage, and have been done with no community consultation or input, nor the input or knowledge of city staff and elected officials. Whatever the outcome, this will have a major and direct effect on anyone who lives near Tunney’s Pasture, works at Tunney’s Pasture, or enjoys the river, roads and greenspaces in and around this large campus. The Wellington Village Community Association recently completed a survey of area residents regarding their knowledge and concerns related to the redevelopment, and are using this data to make a difference before it is too late. Step one is for all of us to push for the release of the detailed plans, and to push for the federal government to meet with local residents to ensure our input is taken into account, and taken seriously.

The community associations representing Wellington Village, Champlain Park, Hintonburg and Mechanicsville have formed Neighbours for Tunney’s to focus on these and other Tunney’s Pasture redevelopment-related issues. A preliminary web page has been launched (www.neighboursfortunneys.ca) and a mailing list has been created so that everyone can stay apprised of updates, and have continued input into the work your community associations are doing on your behalf. Even if you live outside of these four neighbourhoods, you can still sign up. You can join the mailing list by sending a request to  neighboursfortunneys@gmail.com.

For more information, please read the Neighbours for Tunney’s News Release and the Backgrounder and visit the WVCA web page.

Tunney’s Pasture Redevelopment Survey

Subject: Tunney’s Pasture redevelopment plans, history, update on current status and a survey
Date: Wed, 31 Mar 2021 19:26:47 -0400
From: Heather Pearl

After years of silence, we may soon know more about the redevelopment proposals for Tunney’s Pasture.  Here is some history:

  • Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) presented a draft plan to local community associations and the West Wellington BIA in 2012.
  • The CAs and BIA responded that the site needed to be redeveloped as much more than an attractive employment campus.
  • Our MP, Paul Dewar held a public meeting, attended by a large number of residents from the adjacent communities, to discuss what the Tunney’s Pasture Master Plan (TPMP) needed to address.
  • The resulting TPMP Community Report (attached) was posted on Paul’s website.  In-house negotiations began, to which the CAs were not privy.

In 2013, PSPC held a public consultation to gather comments on their new, very different proposal, for a substantial mixed-use development, that responded to most of the issues raised in the TPMP Community Report.

Current status:

  • Jeff Leiper has regularly asked for updates, but has learned only that the 2014 TPMP is being, for the most part, followed.  Recently, he heard that more information should be coming soon.
  • The Wellington Village CA (WVCA) recently heard from PSPC that more information may be available by late spring.

A survey:

  • WV is inviting all interested residents of Champlain Park to respond to their survey questionnaire on the Tunney’s redevelopment plans.  The survey can be found at https://forms.gle/mEWU8BTBj2Rg3oZ6A

Their intent is to:

  • Gather preliminary information on awareness, concerns, and priorities associated with the coming redevelopment.
  • Gather information for a mailing list of keenly interested residents.
  • Take the first step in a series of steps as they attempt to obtain more information, and participate in public consultation.

Based on the survey responses, they hope to form a small working group amongst neighbouring CAs to keep the ball rolling.

Please consider completing the short survey and staying current as this issue matures.  Whatever happens at Tunney’s Pasture has a direct impact on Champlain Park.

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 scottcdp@ottawa.ca before the event.

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.

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.
