THE TRANSPORTATION MASTER PLAN, CYCLING PLAN & PEDESTRIAN PLAN is being unveiled on Wednesday, October 9th, at City Hall with a speech by the Mayor at 8:00a.m. and tabling of the plans at a Joint Transportation and Transit Committee Meeting at 3:00p.m. the same day.
There has been very little time left for public input but it is important that we speak up if the plan is inadequate in meeting the needs of our communities. It will lay out what is planned to be provided between now and 2031, impacting on how we will navigate by bus, car, bike, or on foot. There is one information centre for the Kanata – Stittsville area and three others across the City. You can attend any one of these and I will also hold a discussion at my Town Hall meeting. The public sessions run from 4 to 8 pm as follows:
- October 15th, OttawaCity Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West
- October 17th, Kanata Recreation Centre, 100 Walter Baker
- October 22nd, Walter Baker Sports Centre, 100 Malvern Drive
- October 24th, Bob MacQuarrie Recreation Complex, 1490 Youville Drive.
Each session provides details on proposed plans for Ottawa’s transit, road, cycling and pedestrian expansions, and on the proposed Official Plan and Infrastructure Master Plan policies to guide urban, suburban, and rural developments in Ottawa. This information will also be available at ottawa.ca/liveableottawa, or you may email questions and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Decisions on these plans are being made during the following meetings:
- Transit Commission, October 16th, starting at 9:30a.m.
- Transportation Committee (which includes final approval of the recommendation from the Transit Commission), November 15th, with final Council approval on November 26th.
