Update September 13, 2018: The first of a number of plans of subdivision to implement development of the lands recently added to the urban area has just been received and will be discussed at my October Town Hall meeting. I’ve been informed that several others are in preparation and will be submitted soon. Homes for about 8,000 people will be built there with construction of services to begin in mid 2019.
Update June 16, 2016: The March Road Expansion Lands Official Plan amendment to implement the Kanata North CDP (the area from Maxwell Bridge to past St. Isidore’s Church), is scheduled to go to the Planning Committee on June 28th. The staff report will be posted on Ottawa.ca one week before the meeting. You can view all of the documents related to the community design plan by clicking here. You can come to Planning Committee and speak for up to 5 minutes if you have questions or concerns. From Planning Committee, the report will go to Council for final approval on July 13th. These lands are to include about 3,000 new homes, schools, parks, natural areas and shopping locations. Detailed plans and servicing for the development will take about 2-4 years.
March Road Expansion Lands Community Design Plan Update: The city has initiated the application for the Official Plan amendment related to the Kanata North Community Design Plan (CDP) project, which is located on the expansion lands on March Road north of Maxwell Bridge Road. The purpose of the amendment is to bring the CDP lands into the urban boundary and amend a number of the Schedules of the Official plan to reflect this. At the same time, policy changes are proposed to amend the residential unit mix required and the implementation of a cost sharing agreement.
