Civic Hospital February town hall: what we heard

Better late than never.

Last winter, in the wake of the news that the Civic campus of The Ottawa Hospital would re-locate to the eastern end of the Central Experimental Farm and Queen Juliana Park, I hosted a town hall for the Civic Hospital neighbourhood to begin hearing concerns. I was grateful for the attendance, in addition, of our MPP Yasir Naqvi and the hospital’s Kate Eggins.

I’m happy to say that we’ve finally collated that session into the consultation document available at the link below. (I’ve also included the hospital’s proposed consultation approach, titled Setting the Stage.)

It’s good timing. Last night, I joined the open house hosted by Councillor Brockington looking at the proposed re-zoning to accomplish the Hospital’s move. Around 75 residents attended, many from Kitchissippi. I, the City, and Hospital staff heard many of the same concerns that were raised at our town hall in February.

Development proposal at 1976 Scott St, 315 Tweedsmuir Ave, 320 McRae Ave - Updates & drop-in open house

It's been a few months since we've discussed the proposed development at 1976 Scott St, 315 Tweedsmuir & 320 McRae. You can review our previous blog posts on this development here (October, 2016) and here (November, 2015). 

The applicant has made revisions to their development proposal, and we are hosting a drop-in open house to listen to your feedback. The major changes are: the previously 19-storey tower is now being proposed at 25-storeys, the 9-storey component is now being proposed at 6-storeys, and the 3-storey component is staying the same. The increase in density changes the unit count from 183 units to 240 units. 

The applicant has not resubmitted the application yet, but as soon as the information is available on DevApps we will make sure to circulate that information.

We are hosting a drop-in open house on:
