As you may already be aware, the City of Ottawa is currently undertaking an Official Plan Review. We are asking that you write to the members of Council any time but preferably before November 8. The final Official Plan Amendment will be tabled about six days before a special Planning Committee meeting which will be held on Friday, November 8, 2013. There are three “wedge” issues that are critical. Come out to speak on November 8 if you can. Or write to the Coordinator of Planning Committee before the date of the meeting. Details on these issues (and other very useful links) can be found at the Greenspace Alliance website, as follows: http://greenspace-alliance.ca/wedgeissues
We’ve sent the following letter to all City Councillors covering the same issues. It’s best if you use your own words however, feel free to use any of the ideas from our letter.
