The developer of 1131 Teron Rd. has applied to the Committee of Adjustments for a "minor variance" - reduction of the setback on Teron Rd from 6M to 3M.
In summary, the developer is asking to have the Amendment of changing the setback from 3M to 6M approved for the re-zoning by the full City of Ottawa City Council overturned.
The covering letter claims the decision by City Council was "unfortunate" and "...Since that time [when City Council approved the rezoning], the proponent has evaluated the impact of this increase in setback and has arrived at a conclusion, supported by his design and planning experts, that this is too onerous to the future development of the subject property.”
A hearing will be held at 6:30PM on April 15, 2015 at Ben Franklin Place, The Chamber, Main Floor, 101 Centrepointe Drive. Any member of the public can apply to speak for 5 minutes which you can do prior to the hearing.
You can also comment through mail or email (quoting the application number D08-02-15/A-00070)
Committee of Adjustment
101 Centrepointe Drive
Ottawa, ON K2G 5K7

The KBCA is preparing a response to refuse the application. We will be working with Marianne Wilkinson on feedback to the Committee and on presentations for the hearing.

Christine Maki, a producer at the CBC is looking for a Family outside the Green Belt to do a 1 week house swap with a family downtown for next week (March Break).
We're doing a special series, comparing life in different parts of Ottawa -- what you get and what you lose when you decide to live downtown, vs in the suburbs or in the rural parts. We were hoping to explore the tradeoffs, through an actual trade! We're asking two families -- one from outside the greenbelt, and one from downtown -- to trade places for a week.
I have been able to find a downtown family who's game, but I'm still looking for someone in the suburbs/rural area. It has to be a family with children, willing to be on the radio, and to relocate for the week of March Break (next week).

The developer of 2 the Parkway has submitted a Site Plan Proposal to build a 44 unit 7 storey condominium. This is less than ½ the size of the original re-zoning application which was approved by the city in 2013.
The Post Office building will be retained, although it is not clear if this will be retained long term or if a second 44 unit building will be built (e.g. Phase 2) at some point in the future. The developer has indicated that he is willing to consider ideas for businesses or services that would be pragmatic and commercially viable as tenants of the Post Office building on a long term basis.
Marianne Wilkinson will be discussing the proposal at her Town Hall meeting, March 9, 2015 at the Kanata Regional Library at 7 PM.
Comments need to be submitted prior to March 26, 2015 and the decision will be made on April 27, 2015.
The documents and drawings can be found here: DevApps 2 The Parkway Docs
And the application notice with dates, times, comment form, etc. here: 2 the Parkway Site Plan Notice
