The City will be hosting a series of public information sessions concerning a key cornerstone of the new Official Plan, which is the Transect approach. This is a new proposed approach to planning in Ottawa as the City will plan by context, recognizing the specific needs of neighbourhoods in different parts of the City.
City staff are proposing six different Transect areas across the city, which are: downtown, inner urban, outer urban, suburban, greenbelt and rural. Residents are invited to attend the following virtual public presentations to learn how their neighbourhood will evolve over the next 25 years:
- Inner urban: Tuesday, November 3
- Rural: Wednesday, November 4
- Outer urban: Tuesday, November 10
- Downtown: Thursday, November 12
- Suburban: Monday, November 16
If you are not sure which presentation you should sign up for, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
