Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Thank you for your participation in the launch of the Orléans Corridor Study! The evening drew unprecedented interest, with over 250 of you participating in the first step of the process. Despite some logistical difficulties, we were thrilled to hear from so many of you. Rest assured, we will get a bigger venue next time.

We are now reviewing the many comments and suggestions you left us at the event. But the dialogue is not limited to one evening! Online, we will continue to welcome your ideas on an ongoing basis with the comments and map tools on Engage.Ottawa.Ca . We would also be happy to attend any community events you may have planned.

Let’s keep the conversation going!

Planning for light rail in Orléans

Starting in 2024, Ottawa will open four new light rail transit (LRT) stations: Jeanne d’Arc, Convent Glen, Place d’Orléans and Trim.

In the years ahead, we expect new communities to grow around those stations, transforming properties along the rail corridor as taller buildings and mixed-use neighbourhoods replace parking lots and low-rise commercial areas.

In the coming months, we will need your input in our review of the Orléans LRT Corridor. We want to ensure future development results in livable, resilient, desirable neighbourhoods that support transit and provide the highest quality of life possible. Once our study is completed, it will include plans for the development of lands surrounding the four new LRT stations and provide recommended improvements to pedestrian, cycling and transit connections throughout Orléans.

This project aims to replace two existing secondary plans in the Orléans Town Centre with new policies in the City’s Official Plan, as well as corresponding zoning amendments.

Objectives of the Study

  • To replace existing secondary plans with area-specific Official policies or a secondary plan, Transit Oriented Development plans and zoning
  • To identify improvements that enhance pedestrian and cycling connectivity to LRT stations
  • To provide greater clarity for the community, developers and City staff in reviewing future redevelopment proposals for the areas surrounding Stage 2 stations.
  • To outline alternatives for the future use of interchanges with the advent of LRT
  • To provide recommendations for north-south connectivity with Stage 2 stations

This planning study will not influence the alignment of the LRT or the location of stations.

The City is undertaking a review of land use in proximity to the Orléans Light Rail Transit Corridor and its four future stations. The goal is to prepare a new plan that will guide future development of neighbourhoods that support transit and that are livable, resilient, affordable and complementary to existing neighbourhoods. In the coming months, residents will have opportunities to engage with City staff undertakinging the study and tell us their ideas about future development in the Orléans corridor.
