Zoning Implementation Report
The Zoning Implementation Report was approved by Ottawa City Council on July 6th.
The report provides an overview of the strategy for implementing the policies of the Council-approved new Official plan through the development of a new zoning by-law. Specifically, it looks at how the policies in the Official Plan concerning equity, inclusion and diversity, the growth management strategy, public health, housing, 15-minute neighbourhoods, climate change and the urban forest tree canopy will be implemented in the new Zoning By-law.
The report also includes an overview of best practices in zoning in Canada and other jurisdictions, renderings that illustrate the proposed strategy for achieving the density targets in the growth management strategy, information on the enhanced interactive capabilities in the new Zoning Map, an overview of the content of upcoming discussion papers, and information concerning the public engagement strategy and project timelines.
