Building A Liveable Ottawa 2031

“We need to prepare for the future while preserving what makes Ottawa such a great place to live – our distinct and vibrant neighbourhoods” says Mayor Jim Watson quoted in the media release  on Building A Liveable Ottawa 2031.

Residents can get online to have their say on the future of Ottawa with Building a Liveable Ottawa 2031 – a city-wide review of land-use, transportation and infrastructure policies that feed into the City’s Official Plan, Transportation Plan, Infrastructure Master Plan and the Cycling and Pedestrian Plans.

 The focus of the project and public engagement goes beyond a visioning exercise. It deals directly with proposed solutions to 12 current planning issues.   The issues are intensification, urban land uses, protecting the countryside, creating people friendly environments, transit oriented development, employment land review, infrastructure needs, public transit, streets that have room for all modes of transportation, healthy transportation, reducing dependency on cars, and affordability. 

Each of these planning issues is profiled at Liveable Ottawa The site features a summary of each issue and each proposal, a video, and feedback mechanisms – including a survey that is available until March 1. Residents are urged to review the information before providing their survey responses.

In addition to the online consultations, Open Houses will also take place.
