From Shad Qadri ...... Our Beloved City Councillor
I have been working with City of Ottawa Planning staff to undertake a Community Design Plan (CDP) for Stittsville Main Street. As you know, we are receiving a large amount of growth throughout Stittsville, and I want to ensure that the development along our Main Street retains the community feel of Stittsville. The Study area will include properties on Stittsville Main Street from Bell Street to Carp Road.
The CDP is intended to provide a broad and integrated twenty-year vision and guidance for the growth of the area. It will provide policy direction from which the enabling conditions for sustainable development will emerge, and be of sufficient detail to guide change in both the public and private realms, as implemented through Urban Design Guidelines, Capital Projects and Zoning By-laws.
I encourage you to attend the public visioning workshop on this Thursday, November 1st at the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena hall located at 10 Warner Colpitts Drive. The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with sign-in, light refreshments and a chance for the public to give some initial comments on their hopes and concerns for the community. At 7 p.m. staff will provide a brief presentation about the CDP process and the Vision Statement that will be the product of the workshop. We will then divide into discussion groups concerning topics including, transportation, land use and urban design, architectural heritage, environment and open space, and infrastructure. An opportunity will be provided for people to visit the discussion tables and comment on different topics. The discussion groups will report back to the general assembly and a record of the workshop proceedings will be compiled. Following the workshop a Vision Statement will be drafted and posted on the project webpage.

It is very important for the community to provide input into this process to ensure the community’s vision is represented.
I look forward to seeing you there!
