EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

Assumptions and Analysis:

 

Four amendments are proposed to make minor policy changes and corrections to the 2003 Ottawa Official Plan. Such amendments typically follow the adoption of a new official plan by a city council, to complete the adopted document.  In most cases, the proposed policy changes are minor in nature and serve to correct or clarify policies, in keeping with the overall policy direction set by Council in the plan.

 

The proposed changes are grouped into four amendments, depending on their scope or subject.  Policy changes in response to appeals, as shown in Document 1 attached, include a new site-specific policy for the Rideau-Carleton Raceway, changes to the schedules to reflect an Ontario Municipal Board order on Moffat Farm, and revisions to the policies on land-use constraints due to aircraft noise.  Other policy changes are proposed in the amendment attached as Document 2 and include a new provision for landowners' agreements to pay for infrastructure.  Editorial changes and corrections are proposed in the amendment attached as Document 3, to add cross-references and renumber policies, and to create consistency with the Transportation Master Plan.  Changes to Annex 1 are proposed in the amendment attached as Document 4, to correct the description of various road segments and rights-of-way.   

 

Financial Implications:

 

There are no financial implications.

 

Public Consultation/Input:

 

Consultation on the proposed amendments followed Council's Public Notification and Consultation Policy and also included two advertisements in daily newspapers and consultation with individuals and organizations affected by the proposed changes.

 

 

RÉSUMÉ

 

Hypothèses et analyse :

 

Le Comité propose d'apporter quatre modifications au Plan officiel d'Ottawa de 2003, qui consistent en des corrections et des modifications de politique mineures. En général, de telles modifications font suite à l'adoption d'un nouveau plan officiel par un conseil municipal et complètent le document adopté. Dans la plupart des cas, les modifications de politique  proposées sont mineures et servent à corriger ou à clarifier des politiques, en conformité avec les directives cadres d'ensemble stipulées dans le plan par le Conseil.

 

Les modifications proposées sont au nombre de quatre, qui se différencient par leur portée et leur objet. Les modifications de politique qui font suite à des appels, comme il est indiqué dans le Document 1 ci-joint, comprennent une nouvelle politique s'appliquant à un emplacement particulier (hippodrome Rideau-Carleton), des modifications aux annexes afin de tenir compte d'une ordonnance émanant de la Commission des affaires municipales de l'Ontario à l'égard de la ferme Moffat, ainsi que des révisions aux politiques sur les restrictions en matière d'utilisations du sol liées au bruit des avions. D'autres modifications de politique sont proposées (Document 2 ci-joint), notamment une nouvelle disposition visant la conclusion d'accords avec les propriétaires fonciers en vue du paiement des infrastructures. Le Document 3 ci-joint contient des modifications de forme et des corrections proposées afin d'ajouter des renvois et de changer la numérotation des politiques, ainsi que d'assurer la cohérence avec le Plan directeur des transports. Dans le Document 4 ci-joint, on propose d'apporter des changements à l'Annexe 1 afin de corriger la description de divers segments de route et emprises.

 

Répercussions financières :

 

Il n'y a aucune incidence financière.

 

Consultation publique / commentaires :

 

Les modifications proposées ont fait l'objet d'une consultation, conformément à la Politique du Conseil sur les avis publics et la consultation du public, ainsi que de deux annonces dans les quotidiens et d'une consultation avec des particuliers et des organismes visés.

 

 


BACKGROUND

 

The proposed amendments are part of the process of completing the City of Ottawa Official Plan.  City Council adopted the Ottawa Official Plan in May, 2003.  Following adoption, the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing approved the plan, subject to modifications reviewed by Council before the minister's decision was released.  Eighty-five appeals of the Plan were filed with the Ontario Municipal Board and the Board and City staff are now attempting to resolve as many of these appeals as possible through negotiation and mediation.  In particular, City staff are seeking to dismiss or reduce the scope of several appeals of all of the Plan.  Once these appeals have been addressed, the whole of the Plan will come into effect and replace the plans of the former municipalities.  The changes proposed in these amendments have been timed to coincide with these events, so that a complete consolidation of the Plan can be prepared.

 

DISCUSSION

 

Policy Changes in response to appeals of the 2003 Ottawa Official Plan

 

The amendment attached as Document 1 addresses all or portions of seven appeals, identified below by the name of the appellant and the number assigned to the appeal by the Ontario Municipal Board and the City.

 

Section 2.2.2 Village Boundaries

The proposed amendment addresses part of an appeal on behalf of Newill (Appeal 49), seeking greater recognition in the preamble that residential development in the rural area will occur on country lot subdivisions. The amendment adds text to the preamble, indicating that houses will be built on individual lots and country lot subdivisions.

 

Section 3.6.7 Major Urban Facilities 

A new policy on the Rideau-Carleton Raceway addresses an appeal on behalf of the organization (Appeal 55) that seeks to recognize this major facility in its current location in the rural area, notwithstanding the Plan's policies that will direct such facilities in the future to the urban area. The proposed policy is consistent with the Plan's policy on the Central Canada Exhibition. 

 

Section 3.7.1 Villages

Policy 4 is amended by adding the word "residential" to the list of permitted uses in Villages, to make it clear that residential uses are permitted.  The change addresses part of an appeal on behalf of Charles Delahunt (Appeal 57).

 

Section 4.8.4. Contaminated Sites

Proposed amendments to policies 4 and 5 clarify when in the approval process the City will require a Record of Site Condition and permit the City to issue building permits on a phased basis, so that remediation can occur as part of the site redevelopment.  The proposed amendment reflects current practice in the City and resolves in part an appeal on behalf of Canadian Tire (Appeal 35).

 

 Section 4.8.7 Land-Use Constraints Due to Aircraft Noise

An appeal by the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport Authority (Appeal 80) triggered an amendment to these policies and extensive editorial changes to make them more clear.  The Airport Authority is in agreement with these proposed changes.  Policy changes introduced in the amendment are as follows:

 

Text in the preamble to indicate that the boundaries of the Ottawa Airport Operating Influence Zone and Airport Vicinity Development Zone are not subject to interpretation and should be interpreted from a map at a scale of 1:50,000.

 

Policy permitting infilling of residential uses if a minor variance is required, and provision for 4120A-L Riverside Drive where infilling has been an issue in the past.

 

Introduction of a composite of the 25 NEF and NEP contours developed by the former municipalities, homebuilders, and the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport Authority.  Use of the composite 25 NEF/NEP line reduces the area where noise studies are required for noise-sensitive uses and reduces the boundary of the Airport Vicinity Development Zone on Schedule K - Environmental Constraints.

 

The amendment also introduces an annex that provides background information, such as NEF and NEP contours, that is helpful in interpreting the policies.  This annex is not part of the Plan, but is provided for information purposes only.

 

Schedule B - Urban Policy Plan and Volume 2-A Secondary Plan for Carleton Heights

Schedules in Volume 1 and 2 of the Plan are amended to reflect the Ontario Municipal Board order on Moffat Farm.  The Ontario Municipal Board ordered the approval of the draft plan of subdivision, draft conditions, the official plan amendment, zoning by-law and final approval of the plan of subdivision through order #1550 on November 18, 2003. Amendments to the Regional Official Plan, old Ottawa Official Plan and the secondary plan for Carleton Heights were approved by the Board.  An amendment to Volume 1 and 2 of the 2003 Official Plan is needed to bring the Board decision into effect in the 2003 Ottawa Official Plan, and to address an appeal of the 2003 Plan on behalf of the National Capital Commission and DCR Pheonix (Appeal 82).  The amendment consists of changes to Volume 1 Schedule B, from Major Open Space to General Urban Area, and Volume 2A on the Carleton Heights Land Use Schedule.

 

Schedule D - Primary Transit Network

A segment of the Future Rapid Transit Corridor (Alignment to be Defined) is proposed to be relocated from west of Huntmar Drive to east of Huntmar Drive, north and south of Highway 417. The proposed change addresses an appeal on behalf of the Palladium Auto Park (Appeal 73) and is consistent with the Kanata West Concept Plan approved by Council.

 

Minor Policy Changes

 

The amendment attached as Document 2 proposes minor changes initiated by staff in several policy areas. 

 

Section 2.4.3 Watershed and Subwatershed Plans

Text changes are proposed to introduce an annex showing where watershed and subwatershed studies are complete or in progress.  Changes in Sections 4.7.1 and 4.7.8 describe the role of watershed and subwatershed plans in the integrated environmental review of development applications and in environmental impact statements.

 

Section 2.4.5 Greenspaces

A new policy is added to require an Environmental Impact Statement for development applications for land in wetlands, woodlands and ravines in complexes of 0.8 ha or larger in the urban area, until Council approves the Urban Natural Areas Environmental Evaluation.  This policy was included in the January, 2003 draft of the Plan and the staff report on the March,  2003 plan indicated the policy had been relocated within the Plan.  However, it was deleted through an editing error and is restored in this amendment.

 

Section 2.5.5 Cultural Heritage Resources

The requirements for a cultural heritage impact statement are extended to include new buildings in heritage conservation districts.  Complementary changes are also proposed in Section 4.6.1 Heritage Buildings and Areas.

 

Section 3.2.1 Significant Wetlands South and East of the Canadian Shield

Section 3.2.2 Natural Environment Area

Section 3.2.3 Urban Natural Features

Section 3.2.4 Rural Natural Features

Section 3.3.1 Major Open Space

A new policy is added in each of these sections to indicate that where these lands are privately owned, public use is not permitted without the consent of the owner. The Official Plan of the former Region of Ottawa-Carleton contained a similar policy.

 

Section 3.6.1 General Urban Area

Section 3.6.5 Employment Area and Enterprise Area

The amendment corrects the designation(s) referred to in the policies, so that Employment Areas become the locations for industrial uses and both Employment Areas and Enterprise Areas accommodate over 2000 jobs, a target to be met if the land is to become a Mixed Use Centre.

 

Further, the amendment proposes to delete the requirement that apartments in Enterprise Areas be five storeys in height. Discussions related to the retail appeals may result in recommendations to revisit these sections.

 

Section 4.4.2.4 Small Water and Wastewater Works  

Minor wording changes clarify the types of uses that can be accommodated by small water and wastewater works.

 

Section 4.5 Housing

The Province of Ontario has indicated it plans to amend the Tenant Protection Act, 1997 and is consulting on a range of issues that includes demolitions and conversions. The current Plan policy is difficult to implement, and therefore a new policy is proposed to study the use of demolition control as a means of maintaining the affordable housing supply. The demolition control by-law for land within the former City of Ottawa will remain in effect until a new by-law is prepared.

 

Section 4.6.3 River Corridors

A new policy is proposed to set minimum lot sizes for development in the General Rural Area adjacent to the Rideau River upstream from Roger Stevens Drive, to protect the cultural heritage of the river. The 1997 Regional Official Plan had similar policies that were not included in early drafts of the 2003 Ottawa Official Plan because early drafts did not contemplate country lot subdivisions.

 

Section 5.3 Other Implementation Policies

A new policy is proposed to permit Council to consider the use of private agreements among landowners to share the costs of infrastructure.

 

Schedule K - Environmental Constraints

The boundary of the Ottawa Airport Operating Influence Zone is proposed to be amended, to delete lands at the intersection of Albion Road and Lester Road.  The Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport Authority is in agreement with the proposed change.

 

Volume 2A - Secondary Plans for Longfields, Davidson Heights Communities, South Merivale Business Park Secondary Plan - Area 1, 2, and 3

The amendment proposes to delete the requirement that this residential area on private services be used only for the existing single-detached houses and allows Council to consider new lot creation subject to the policies in Volume 1 of the Plan. These policies include policies on land use constraints due to aircraft noise and development on private services in public service areas.

 

Editorial Changes and Corrections

 

The amendment attached as Document 3 proposes corrections and editorial changes with no policy implications.  The changes include the addition of cross-references, correction to the numbering or location of policies, and changes to maintain consistency among the policies.  Minor wording changes are proposed, consistent with the intent of the policy, for clarification.  The amendment also corrects errors in the schedules, including the boundary of the General Urban Area near Leitrim, and adds the names of arterial roads.

 

The amendment updates the text that indicates the Official Plan will be amended to reflect any changes arising through Council's approval of the Transportation Master Plan (approved after the Official Plan).  It also updates the schedules to reflect changes made in the Transportation Master Plan, particularly with respect to Schedule D - Primary Transit Network.  The transportation schedules are also corrected and updated, to show where roads have been built and are no longer "proposed".  

 

Volume 2 of the Plan is also corrected by inserting a new, correct schedule to the Central Area Plan, restoring text and correcting cross-references in the Secondary Plan for Preston-Champagne, and correcting the text and schedules for the site-specific policies for the Kanata Town Centre.

 

Corrections and minor policy changes to Annex 1 regarding road classifications and rights-of-way

 

This amendment attached as Document 4 proposes minor policy changes to Tables 1 to 11 and 13 to 14 that list the rights-of-way to be protected for defined segments of city freeways, urban and rural arterials, major collectors, collectors and local roads.  These changes include:

Adding new road segments and rights-of-way from the official plans of the former local municipalities that were omitted in error.  Many of these additions are local streets (Table 14) in older urban industrial/commercial areas and the cores of a few rural villages.

 

Revising the description of road segments subject to a specified right-of-way by correcting the names of cross-roads that are used to define the segment.

 

Adding segments of certain roads and identifying a new rights-of-way, typically where the classification of a road has changed and the tables need revision.

Applying a uniform right-of-way requirement to the entire length of roads running along the boundaries of former local municipalities, where each municipality had applied a different right-of-way protection.

 

The amendment also introduces new text in  to Section 1 of the Annex, to refer to pedestrians, cyclists and transit users and to acknowledge the greenspace and public space function of roadways.

 

The amendment also makes clarifications and corrections to the annex, including:

 

Correcting the description of road segments

Deleting descriptions of road segments that are duplicates or that do not belong in the table

Revising the description of road segments to improve consistency

Correcting the description of road segments to correspond with how the roads are shown on Schedules E or H

Correcting typographical errors, updating the names of streets that have been renamed, and other minor editing changes

 

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPLICATIONS

 

The amendment attached as Document 2 provides additional information about the role of watershed and subwatershed plans in the planning process.

 

CONSULTATION

 

Consultation on the amendments followed Council's Public Notification and Consultation Policy.  A summary of the amendments was sent to all organizations that had requested notification of amendments with city-wide application and anyone who commented on the amendment received a notice of the public meeting.  In addition, the amendments were advertised in March and August in daily newspapers and  a summary was sent to all parties who had appealed the 2003 Ottawa Official  Plan.  Appellants were also consulted on proposed changes to address all or part of their appeal.

 

Several parties commented on the proposed change to the demolition control by-law.  In all cases, the parties expressing concern (the Glebe, Action Sandy Hill, Hintonburg and the University of Ottawa) are now subject to the demolition control by-law of the former City of Ottawa and the proposed amendments do not change the by-law now in effect.  The community organizations were concerned about possible effects of a demolition control by-law on the conversion of dwelling units; however, such conversions for the most part do not entail demolition and would not be subject to a demolition control by-law.  Staff will consult with community groups in preparing the new by-law.

 

The revised airport noise policies were reviewed with the Ottawa-Carleton Home Builders' Association, the Ottawa-Macdonald Cartier International Airport Authority, the National Capital Commission and residents of 4120A-L Riverside Drive.

 

Parks Canada expressed its support for the proposed policies regarding river corridors.

PART B - THE AMENDMENT

 

1.         Introduction

 

All of this part of this document entitled Part B - The Amendment, consisting of the following text and the attached maps designated as Schedules “1” to “5” to Amendment No._, constitutes Amendment No. _to the Official Plan of the City of Ottawa.

 

2.         Details

 

The following changes are hereby made to the Official Plan of the City of Ottawa:

 

1.         Section 2.2.2 Village Boundaries is hereby amended by deleting the words, “While individual homes will continue to be built throughout the rural area on existing lots of record,” in the third sentence of the preamble and by adding the words, “While homes will continue to be built in the rural area on new lots created by severance or plan of subdivision in accordance with the policies of this plan, and on existing lots of record,” in their place.

 

2.         Section 3.6.7 Major Urban Facilities is hereby amended by adding a new policy 4, as follows:  Notwithstanding the above policies requiring Major Urban Facilities to locate in the urban area, in order to recognize the Rideau Carleton Raceway and Slots facility, located on lands legally described as part of the South Half of Lot 24, Concession 4, Rideau Front, Gloucester, being Parts 5 and 11 on Plan 4R-15731; Parts of lots 23 and 24, Concession 4, Rideau Front, Gloucester, being Part 2 on Plan 4R-15731; and consolidation of various properties:  Part of lot 24, Concession 4, Rideau Front, Gloucester, Being parts 3, 4, 6, and 7 on Plan 4R-15731,  an exhibition grounds for the viewing of horse racing, gaming premises as defined in the Gaming Control Act and related uses are also permitted in addition to those uses permitted in the General Rural Area designation, in this location.”

 

3.         Section 3.7.1 Villages is hereby amended by inserting the words “residential and” after the words “will include” in policy 4.

 

4.         Section 4.8.4 Contaminated Sites is hereby amended by deleting policy 4 and inserting the following as a new policy 4, “The City will require a Record of Site Condition (RSC) as a condition of approval for plans of subdivision and condominium, site plan or severance applications, in accordance with the Guideline of Use at Contaminated Sites in Ontario (1997), confirming that the site is suitable or has been made suitable for the proposed use, in the following circumstances:

 

a)         the site is proposed for residential development or for a use more sensitive to contamination or contaminants than the present or former land use; and

 

b)         available information indicates the site is or may be contaminated, or is within 500 metres, or other influence area, of an active landfill site.


Where an RSC has been made a condition of City's approval, a building permit may be issued in regard to a site on a phased basis to allow for site investigation and remediation. An RSC must be completed to the satisfaction of the City and acknowledged by the Ministry of Environment.”

 

5.         Section 4.8.4 Contaminated Sites is hereby amended by deleting policy 5 and inserting the following as a new policy 5, “For instances where contamination extends onto a City right-of way and completion of a Record of Site Condition is not possible, the City may issue a building permit on a phased basis contingent on the execution and implementation of an Off-Site Management Agreement or Remedial Action Plan to remediate the right-of-way and development site, to the satisfaction of the City.”

 

6.         Section 4.8.7 Land-Use Constraints Due to Aircraft Noise is hereby amended by deleting all of section 4.8.7 and inserting the following:

 

                  “4.8.7 Land-Use Constraints Due to Aircraft Noise

 

The Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport as well as the airports at Carp and Rockcliffe support the economic development of the National Capital Region and therefore warrant protection from incompatible development.  At the same time, new communities must be planned and then built according to appropriate building standards so that noise-sensitive land uses are protected from the adverse effects of aircraft noise. Noise-sensitive land uses are housing, institutional uses, public facilities and outdoor recreation spaces.  Specific examples include, but are not limited to, campgrounds, hospitals, places of worship, schools, day care facilities, long-term care facilities, libraries, auditoriums and community centres.  Hotels and motels are also noise-sensitive land uses, but they are treated differently from other such uses because they benefit from convenient access to the airport and the impact of noise on people is reduced by the short duration of most visits.

 

The types of land uses that are compatible with noise levels in the vicinity of airports are determined through reference to federal guidelines based on the Noise Exposure Forecast (NEF) and Noise Exposure Projection (NEP) system. This system uses noise contours to graphically display the expected level of annoyance within specific areas around airports.  These noise contours have been used in this Plan to define the boundaries of areas that are affected by the airport and to set policies for these areas.  These areas include Greenbelt lands and urban and rural areas; the policies regarding airport noise are to be considered in addition to policies for these areas elsewhere in this Plan. 

 

The boundary of the Ottawa Airport Operating Influence Zone is based on the 30 NEF and NEP contours. Within this area, noise-sensitive development is generally not permitted, although infill and redevelopment may occur in specific areas within the zone in keeping with the policies below.  The boundary of the Ottawa Airport Operating Influence Zone has been drawn to coincide with physical features such as roads, creeks, rail lines, and lot lines where possible. The boundary of the Ottawa Airport Operating Influence Zone, shown on Schedule K, is not subject to interpretation and its precise location should be read from a map at a scale of 1:50 000 available from the City of Ottawa and the Ottawa-Macdonald Cartier International Airport Authority.

 

The boundary of the Airport Vicinity Development Zone is based on the boundary set for the Ottawa International Airport Zoning regulations and the composite of the 25 NEF and NEP contours.  The composite of the NEF and NEP contours has also been drawn to coincide with physical features such as roads, creeks, rail lines, and lot lines where possible.  Like the boundary of the Ottawa Airport Operating Influence Zone, the boundary of the Airport Vicinity Development Zone is shown on Schedule K and is not subject to interpretation.

 

Annex 9 shows the boundaries of the composite 25 NEF and NEP contours and the Ottawa International Airport Zoning regulations, and illustrates how the two combine to make up the boundary of the Airport Vicinity Development Zone.  Noise-sensitive uses are permitted between the 25 NEF/NEP composite and the boundary of the Ottawa Airport Operating Influence Zone, provided the noise is attenuated.  Noise-sensitive uses are permitted outside the boundary of the 25 NEF/NEP composite without attenuation, although the Ottawa International Airport Zoning regulations may apply.

 

The Ottawa International Airport Zoning regulations address the height of buildings and vegetation near the airport and apply to most lands within the Ottawa Airport Operating Influence Zone and the Airport Vicinity Development Zone.

 

Policies

 

Aircraft Noise – Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport

 

1.   Land impacted by the operation of the airport is identified on Schedule K as the Ottawa Airport Operating Influence Zone and the Airport Vicinity Development Zone.  These zones have been identified in order to protect the economic potential of the city’s airports as well as protect residents from the adverse impacts of unacceptable levels of noise.  Review of development applications in these zones will be guided by the Transport Canada manual TP1247E - Land Use in the Vicinity of Airports and the Ministry of Environment Noise Assessment Criteria in Land Use Planning LU-131, as amended periodically.

 

2.   A detailed noise control study may be required for any development proposal at or above the 25 NEF/ NEP contour.  A detailed noise control study includes, but is not limited to:

a)   Consideration of all airport noise sources, including noise produced by aircraft run-ups and taxiing, the reverse thrust noise produced by landing aircraft, and helicopter noise;

b)   Consideration of noise from sources other than the airport, including roads, rail lines and industry;

c)   Details of the assessment methods, results, and recommendations for noise control measures, and provisions for how the measures will be secured through the conditions of approval of plans of subdivision and condominium, site plan or severance applications.

 

3.   Within the Ottawa Airport Operating Influence Zone, designated on Schedule K, no development of residential and other noise-sensitive land uses will be permitted above the 35 NEF and 35 NEP contour lines, whichever is more restrictive.

 

4.   Within the Ottawa Airport Operating Influence Zone, no development of residential and other noise-sensitive land uses will be permitted between the boundary of the Ottawa Airport Operating Influence Zone and the 35 NEF and 35 NEP contour lines (whichever is more restrictive), except:

 

a)   The redevelopment of existing residential and other noise-sensitive land use;

b)   Infilling of new residential uses;

c)   Hotels and motels.

 

5.   Further to policy 4, redevelopment of existing residential and other noise-sensitive land uses and infilling of new residential uses will only be permitted where the development:

 

a)   Does not require the approval of a plan of subdivision, or amendment to the zoning by-law or amendment to this Plan; and

b)   Is on a new lot created by a severance where the severance is permitted in the zoning by-law existing on May 14, 2003 and is in accordance with all the provisions of the Plan; or

c)   Is on a lot existing and fronting on a public road that is maintained year-round, provided that the lot was created under the Planning Act by May 14, 2003, and the use is permitted in the zoning by-law and is in accordance with all the provisions of this Plan.  This policy is not to be interpreted so as to require a change in the provisions of the zoning by-law for 4120A-L Riverside Drive in effect on May 14, 2003.

 


6.   Further to policy 4, a detailed noise control study will be required for any redevelopment of existing residential and other noise-sensitive land uses and infilling of new residential uses. Development of hotels or motels will only be permitted where it can be demonstrated that such land uses are highly desirable in terms of the location and the attributes of the site.

 

7.   Within the Airport Vicinity Development Zone, noise-sensitive uses will be permitted between the 25 NEF/NEP composite and the boundary of the Ottawa Airport Operating Influence Zone, subject to the policies elsewhere in this Plan, provided appropriate noise attenuation measures are in place.  Applications for noise-sensitive uses require either:

 

a)   A detailed noise control study that includes recommendations for noise control measures to meet provincial criteria, as outlined in LU-131 Noise Assessment Criteria in Land Use Planning; or,

b)   Application of the Prescribed Measures to Address Airport Noise prepared in July, 1998 by area municipalities, homebuilders and the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport Authority.  These measures apply only to typically-built residential tract housing.

 

8.   Proposed development will comply with the Ottawa International Airport Zoning regulations, enacted under the Aeronautics Act, regarding the location and height limits of objects in the vicinity of the airport. The zoning regulations can be examined at the Land Registry Office. 

 

9.   Proposed developments will also comply with Transport Canada’s manual TP 1247 – Land-Use in the Vicinity of Airports, including:

 

a)   protection of navigational aids and telecommunications systems at the airport through attention to building height, orientation and use of metallic substances that could interfere with these systems;

b)   restrictions on land uses that could attract birds and wildlife and pose a hazard to aircraft operations.

 

Aircraft Noise  – Carp and Rockcliffe Airports

 

1.   No noise-sensitive uses will be permitted above the 30 NEF and 30 NEP contour lines.

2.   Development applications that propose noise-sensitive land uses between the 25 NEF and 25 NEP and the 30 NEF and 30 NEP contours require a detailed noise control study.

 

7.         Schedule B – Urban Policy Plan is hereby amended by changing the designation of a portion of the plateau lands at 1709 Prince of Wales Drive, and a portion of a 3.6 ha (9 acre) parcel to the north, from Major Open Space to General Urban Area, as shown on Schedule 1 attached.

 

8.         Schedule D – Primary Transit Network is hereby amended by changing the location of the segment of the Future Rapid Transit Corridor (Alignment to be Defined) from west of Huntmar Drive to east of Huntmar Drive north and south of Highway 417 as shown on Schedule 2 attached.

 

9.         Schedule K – Environmental Constraints – is hereby amended by changing the boundary of the Airport Vicinity Development Zone and the Airport Operating Influence Zone, as shown in Schedule 3 attached.

 

10.       The Annexes of the Ottawa Official Plan are hereby amended by inserting a new Annex 9 Land-Use Constraints Due to Airport Noise after Annex 8, as shown in Schedule 4 attached.  The Plan is further amended by renumbering the annexes in the Plan and revising references in the text as required.

 

Volume 2A – Secondary Plans

 

11.       The Secondary Plan for Carleton Heights is hereby amended by the following changes on Schedule G – Carleton Heights Land Use, as shown on Schedule 5 attached:

a)         A portion of the plateau lands at 1709 Prince of Wales Drive is changed from District/Community Park and Major Open Space – Conservation Area, to Residential Area – Low Density,

b)         A portion of the plateau lands at 1709 Prince of Wales Drive is changed from District/Community Park and Major Open Space – Conservation Area, to Neighbourhood Park, and

c)         A portion of the 3.6-ha (9 acre) parcel to the north is changed from Major Open Space – Conservation Area to Residential Area – Low Density

 

3.         Implementation

 

The implementation of this Amendment to the Official Plan shall be in accordance with the policies of the 2003 Official Plan of the City of Ottawa.

“5.7.3.1     GOAL

 

Create a vibrant, attractive core that meets the needs of a maturing City.

 

OBJECTIVES/DESIGN PRINCIPLES

 

Provide a mix of generally higher density and higher order, residential, commercial, civic, institutional, cultural and employment uses, especially in the Main Street area, which will populate, animate and contribute to an urban experience that complements Kanata’s earlier developments.

 

Provide opportunities and facilities, which respond to the needs of a maturing City with a greater mix of ages, incomes and cultural backgrounds.

 

Ensure that the development form responds to the human scale and encourages interaction by creating an interesting and safe pedestrian environment with features such as weather protection, views and lighting.

 

5.7.3.2     GOAL

 

Create an enhanced public realm, recognising the permanence of these decisions.

 

OBJECTIVES/DESIGN PRINCIPLES

 

Ensure that the locations of streets recognise their permanent contribution to the public realm as the urban skeleton for the built form, the public viewscape, a place for the urban forest and as a conduit for people via their chosen mode of transportation.

 

Reserve key locations that will communicate Civic pride and provide a prominent place for public art and monuments.

 

5.7.3.3       GOAL

 

Incorporate flexibility and efficiency into the Town Centre Plan in order to respond to future uncertainties.

 

OBJECTIVES/DESIGN PRINCIPLES

 

Ensure that block sizes and orientation are based on a modified grid and are capable of development and eventual redevelopment in the very distant future - a recognition that cities constantly evolve. Ensure that facilities perform a multiplicity of functions wherever possible, for example:

 

-               storm water ponds may also serve as visual buffers

-               planting areas are visual buffers as well as environmental filters

 

Capitalise on the Town Centre’s unique opportunity within Kanata for direct access to the future Transitway system.

 

5.7.3.4    GOAL

 

Integrate natural and built elements in a form that reflects Kanata, the City in the country.

 

OBJECTIVES/DESIGN PRINCIPLES

Encourage development that responds sensitively to the topography and other natural features of the site.

 

Preserve a large open space opportunity near Main Street.

 

Create a network of smaller parks which punctuate the major pedestrian route and which provide meeting places and a reminder of our natural heritage.

 

Strive to minimise the disruptive impact of Highway 417 on residential uses.  Encourage businesses to take advantage of highly visible areas adjacent to Highway 417.

 

5.7.3.5     GOAL

 

Develop the appropriate infrastructure to serve the Town Centre.

 

OBJECTIVES / DESIGN PRINCIPLES

 

Plan and build a street network that meets the needs of people first, recognising that these public spaces do more than move private automobiles.

 

Create effective pedestrian linkages between activity centres, keeping walking distances reasonable.”

 

3.         Implementation

 

The implementation of this Amendment to the Official Plan shall be in accordance with the policies of the 2003 Official Plan of the City of Ottawa.

1.         Purpose

 

The purpose of this Amendment is to make minor policy changes, corrections and clarifications to the 2003 Ottawa Official Plan.

·        Addition of new road segments and rights-of-way from the official plans of the former local municipalities that were omitted in error from the Plan as adopted by City Council.  Many of these additions are local streets (Table 14) in older urban industrial/commercial areas and the cores of a few rural villages.

·        Revisions to the description of road segments subject to a specified right-of-way by correcting the names of cross-roads that are used to define the segment

·        Addition of road segments and rights-of-way, typically where the classification of a road has changed and the tables need revision

·        Introduction of a uniform right-of-way requirement to the entire length of roads running along the boundaries of former local municipalities, where each municipality had applied a different right-of-way protection

·        Addition of text in Section 1 of the Annex, to refer to pedestrians, cyclists and transit users and to acknowledge the greenspace and public space function of roadways.

 

The amendment also makes clarifications and corrections to the annex, including:

 

·        Correcting the description of road segments

·        Deleting descriptions of road segments that are duplicates or that do not belong in the table

PART B - THE AMENDMENT

 

1.         Introduction

 

All of this part of this document entitled Part B - The Amendment, consisting of the following text, constitutes Amendment No. _to the Official Plan of the City of Ottawa.

1.         Annex 1, Section 1.0 Classification Summary is hereby amended by adding the following paragraph after the first paragraph under “Arterial Roads”:

 

“Arterial roads function as major public corridors in the urban communities and villages they traverse.  They not only accommodate car and truck traffic, but also serve pedestrians, cyclists and public transit buses.  The roadway and its boulevard are therefore designed to meet the needs of these users through the provision, where appropriate, of such features as sidewalks, cycling lanes, and bus stops and shelters.  In parts of the urban area and villages additional roadside features include: street furniture, pedestrian-scale lighting, and trees and other landscaping.  This greenery provides visual appeal, summer shade and a defining sense of the linear nature of these travel corridors.  The planning of land uses and the local road network on lands adjacent to arterial roads may occur in a manner that can reduce the need for noise attenuation barriers or fencing along extensive lengths of roadway.”     

 

2.         Annex 1, Section 1.0 Classification Summary is hereby amended by adding the following paragraph after the first paragraph under “Major Collector and Collector Roads”:

 

“Collector roads are the principal streets in urban and village neighbourhoods and are used by local residents, delivery and commercial vehicles, transit and school buses, cyclists, and pedestrians.  The reduced speed and volumes of traffic on collector roads, compared with arterial roads, make collectors more accommodating for cyclists and pedestrians.  Tree plantings, bus stops, community mailboxes and other streetscape features create roadways that are integrated with their neighbourhood.”

 

3.         Annex 1, Section 1.0 Classification Summary is hereby amended by adding the following sentence at the end of the first paragraph under “Local Roads”:

 

“Pedestrians and cyclists are major users of local roads, starting or finishing their journeys along these roads.”

6.         Annex 1, Section 2.0 Rights-of-Way, is hereby amended by deleting the last two sentences from policy 1 that read “In the interim, the ROW requirements for rural arterial and collector roads as shown in the Tables 4 to 13 in this annex will apply.  If a road is identified on Schedules G and H but at this time does not appear in the tables in this annex, the ROW will be 20.0 metres.” and replacing them with the following:

 

“In the interim, the ROW requirements for collector roads in the rural area as shown in the Tables 4 to 13 in this annex will apply.  If a collector road is identified on Schedules G and H but is not listed in the tables in this annex, the ROW will be 20.0 metres.”
