Notice: Public Open House and Workshop, CFB Rockcliffe
Looking at the big picture: thinking long-term and making the connections
Canada Lands Company, in partnership with the City of Ottawa, is preparing a Community Design Plan and environmental assessment studies to identify a recommended plan for the redevelopment of the former Canadian Forces Base Rockcliffe lands. This project is being conducted using the integrated approach in accordance with
Section A.2.9 of the Municipal Engineers Association’s Municipal Class Environmental Assessment for meeting the requirements of the Environmental Assessment Act and for approval under the Planning Act. Alternatives for providing water, wastewater, stormwater, roads, transit and active transportation infrastructure will be assessed. The study team is hosting a Public Open House and workshop to share information and to continue to receive feedback from members of the public. This Open House is a follow up to the Ideas Fair held in November 2012, and participants will have the opportunity to review progress on the project to date, and discuss the direction of the plan in an interactive environment. Participants will have an opportunity to meet with representatives from the study team and to review and comment on:
- Existing site conditions and development considerations;
- The vision and supporting principles guiding the planning and development of the site;
- Alternative land use design concepts for the site.
The Public Open House will involve both drop-in hours and a workshop session. Advance registration is required for participation in the workshop session. Limited space is available.
