Ottawa – There is still time for you to have your say about Lansdowne 2.0 at a virtual public meeting on Thursday, July 13 at 6 pm. Registration is required to participate. Another meeting will be scheduled at a later date.
The session will provide an opportunity for residents to learn more about the City-initiated Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment. These are required to clarify policies within the Official Plan (OP) pertaining to the Lansdowne Special District and ensure OP compatibility and compliance. Staff will provide a presentation, followed by a question-and-answer period.
Lansdowne Park is a destination with more than a century of history as a gathering place for residents and tourists alike. The site includes greenspaces, residences, play areas, public art, sporting and event venues, retail and restaurant space and restored heritage buildings. The City of Ottawa and Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) have created a redevelopment plan for the site that reflects the history, unique location and role of Lansdowne as a year-round gathering place for Canada’s capital.
Public engagement on Lansdowne 2.0 launched in March. Since then, the City has heard from residents through:
A concept plan survey
A public realm and urban park survey
Virtual public meetings on April 27 and May 17
Weekly coffee chats with project leadership beginning June 14
Hundreds of comments provided on the public engagement site
On-site survey and engagement
You can find presentations and summaries of feedback received through these public engagement events at the project’s public engagement site, along with extensive background about Lansdowne 2.0 and details about the proposal.
After this week, the next Lansdowne 2.0 public session, originally scheduled for August 17th, has been postponed to Wednesday, September 6th at 6:00pm. The two meetings will continue to be identical.
