City Council notes (August 27)

Ottawa City Council approved two Kanata zoning amendments and rejected a third at a council meeting on August 27:

  • 370 Huntmar Drive: Council approved an amendment to “permit a multi-building commercial shopping centre”.  The address is at the south-east corner of Campeau Drive and Huntmar Drive,  across the street from the Tanger Outlets. The proposed shopping centre would include approximately 10,500 square metres of retail and restaurant space in nine buildings, along with 525 parking spaces. The full report is here…
  • 5264 Fernbank Road
    Council approved a zoning amendment that would allow a car dealership including a gas station, service bays and car wash. The land is on the southeast corner of Fernbank and Eagleson. The land was previously zoned as “institutional”, which includes usages such as day cares, places of worship, retirement homes, schools and community centres.  The full report is here…
  • 19 and 23 Bachman Terrace
    Council rejected a proposed zoning change for this property near Hazeldean and Eagleson.  The zoning change would have permitted a higher-density townhouse development.  Council refused the development as being “too dense in light of the development in the surrounding community” and because it “does not ‘fit well’ within its physical context nor does it ‘work well’ with the existing and planned function of the surrounding community.” The full report is here…

Demolition of the old Bradley’s General Store building at 1518 Stittsville Main Street started at 7am today. By 10am it was a pile of bricks.  A fire destroyed the building in September 2013.  Although it had heritage designation, the building was deemed to be structurally unsound.

No word yet on what will replace the building, or when.
