Have your say on Kanata building heights!

Please join KBCA reps at a City consultation on a the Zoning Study on building heights in the Kanata Town Centre and key intersections throughout Kanata.  City Planners will be showing new provisions for buildings heights for mid-rises and intersections.

City staff will present and you will be asked to join an interactive discussion that will identify areas where additional building height may be appropriate.

Your participation is important.  Come, meet your neighbours, get an update on what's being proposed.  Have your say!  Give City and KBCA your views.

KBCA reps and networks have been active in a federation of community associations trying to fix and improve Ottawa's Official Plan and Transportation Master Plan.  We asked for improved transit, recognition of the special character of Beaverbrook, need for improved paths, complete sidewalks in some dangerous areas, better landscaping and controls along specific roads, intensification of townsite areas, more weight for Kanata-Stittsville and Southern reps in plans for outside Greenbelt.  Some of our requests hit receptive targets.  Our councilor is supportive.  At City Hall 15 November Mr Hubley also joined our request to Councilors to form a Councilors task group on transportation and appropriate development, for Kanata-Stittsville, and possibly other Western and Southern Wards.
